What is your "let's get down to business!" hairdo? (ex.: cleaning the house, fixing your car, cooking a huge meal)
What is your sleep hairdo?
I like to do two tight pigtails for bed because it gives me awesome waves in the morning, and I like to do a big bun right on top of my head for messy business--keeps it out of my face and off my back.
Are you pissed it was in a text or does the casual nature of the relationship mean a text is ok?
What do you hate about the place you live right now?
Before anyone asks, I'll already be cooking most nights now, looking for work a few hours per day, and doing small projects around the house. There might be a little Wii golfing in there too. I'm not interested in volunteer work at this time.
For those of you that get paid twice a month, or every 2 weeks-- which is it really? Occasionally, like this past month, the first Friday of the month falls the first day or so of the month and thus there are 6 Fridays. Would you expect three paychecks in one month, or would you just expect your first paycheck of the next pay period to be larger?
My husband and I have been arguing this (it was an issue when budgeting for Christmas). He says he gets paid twice a month-- on the first and third Fridays of the month. I say he gets paid biweekly, and if the sixth week happens to fall in the same month, he should get a third paycheck within that month. The thing is, neither of us really know. He's just going on the belief that he only gets paid twice a month, no matter what, and I'm just using what to me seems common sense reasoning along with my vague reminiscences of many eons ago about what getting paid twice a month actually means.
tl;dr-- Where's ma' money!?
*ETA* Yeah, I'm good at maths. So, no there were not 6 Fridays in December, but he got paid the first Friday of December, which was only the 2nd of the month.
He texted me from work. I was right. :P
Do you know anyone else who does?
Do you make your own cards, or do you buy them?
If you don't write thank you cards/notes, do you just tell the person who gave you the item or helped you "thank you" over the phone or by other means?
do you correct people when they assume they're you're actual dad/mum/sister/brother etc?
TQC, will you be my doctors until I see the real one tomorrow?
2 days ago I was driving and next thing I knew I was waking up in an ambulance to them telling me I had a seizure and crashed my car. At the ER they could not figure out what caused it so I'm seeing my regular doctor tomorrow. Tell me TQC, what could have caused this? Is it normal for people to have a "one time" seizure?
some facts: I had not eaten yet that day, neither of my parents have ever had a seizure, I take birth control and celexa for anxiety, but I didn't think celexa caused that....
From this list, what movies are you excited for?
My boyfriends birthday is in April, he loves when I play my violin for him so I want to make him a cd as part of his gift.
What is the best (mac friendly) software for me to accomplish this goal with? Bonus points if its available from the app store and under $50. My lazy ass can also flip into Windows if there is a better option, but I have a gift card for the app store. :)
Do you play any instruments? :)
Can be a quote/song lyric/whatever, I don't mind.
You've managed to catch a tiger by its toe. It's starting to holler. What do you do?
Why do I feel like this?
Did someone spike my grape juice?
Tell us a tale of when you felt hung over without the aid of alcamahols
My google fu sucks apparently and when I called the Indiana state police traffic division they just kept transferring me around and acting dumbfounded when I asked.
Im on a committee organizing a competitive long distance ride that will be cutting through some busy city streets in and around Indianapolis and Clarksville Indiana at some points...in case you were wondering.
Dk/dc : Whats for dinner?
The celebrity you have the biggest crush/attraction to starts to date someone who looks just like you. The resemblance is uncanny. How do you feel?
After 6 months of happy dating, things turn ugly, and the couple breaks up. Your crush (the celebrity) is heartbroken, and says to the press "I never want to see him/her again, or anyone who looks like them. EVER!!". How does this make you feel?
TMZ starts to follow you around shortly afterwards, obviously mistaking you for your famous doppleganger. What do you do?
ETA: When we spent time in Denver, we also spent time in the larger area of CO around Denver, including Boulder, Breckinridge and Estes Park/Rocky Mountain National Park. I've found that Salt Lake City and Canyonlands National Park in Moab, Utah, Teton National Park in Wyoming, and Santa Fe, New Mexico are all a reasonable driving distance away. Have you been to any of these places? Which would you recommend?
DK/DC: What are your favorite recipes that require a food processor? I just received one from Christmas and I'm excited to not have to hand mash soups and hummus!
so here's my question... tomorrow i'm getting a medium sized tattoo on the top of my foot. i've been looking online about aftercare. i'll be starting back at work on sunday and will need to wear socks, and of course it's january and i don't want to freeze so will be wearing socks anyway, and i read online that it's okay to wear socks if you put cream on it and wrap it up in a bandage, and keep making sure to clean it etc and put cream on it regularly. i am just worried that the tattoo will stick to the bandage and then taking it off will hurt the tattoo. or should i wrap it in cling film instead of using a bandage? what do you think?
What was your favorite scene(s)/message(s)/etc. from that movie?
What is the biggest crisis you and/or your family has been in?
Is there a theme you like to stick to?
I HAVE NO CALENDAR WHAT KIND SHOULD I GET
I want it to be small, and I think on or right below my left wrist.
I'm deciding between "respirer" which is French for breathe; "alive"; or a picture of a skeleton dancing or a mixtape. I know, these are all pretty different... all that said, will you help me decide which one to get?
Please and thank you!
How many tattoos do you have? When did you get your first, and why? Which is your favorite?
It's one of my favorite documentaries. I think I first saw it a couple years ago, and I had no idea old movies could be so gay. ;)
i need to get my dinner done and cooked generally at the same time, for it to be hot when my guests arrive at around 9:15pm (its now 6:45pm where i am)
im cooking everything in the oven.
acorn squash, which needs 1hr-1:15min cook time give or take @ 400degrees
and a meat pie which needs around 50min cook time give or take @ 350 degrees
should i put both the squash and pie in the oven and cook them together?
and if so WHEN should i put everything in the oven.
usually im pretty good at gauging cook times but tonight my brain is not working.
what are you having/what did you have for dinner tonight?!
On the second session of the second day of doubling up, I noticed a gawdawful ammonia smell. Like seriously... cat pee strength ammonia. It took me several minutes to realize:
OMG~ It's coming from me!! I'm sweating ammonia!
I looked around on the intertoobs when I got home and showered. It seems it's not so uncommon for some folk with protein heavy diets and is a natural result of the rapid breakdown of proteins during extreme workouts. I'm pretty confident that I'm eating enough calories to build muscle, which makes the odor incidental to my diet if I don't make changes in that area. An apple an hour before the final workout seemed to make quite a difference but I could still smell the fumes. I stay very well hydrated; I don't have any symptoms of kidney issues.
Any personal trainer or fitness buffs want to weigh in - is there anything else I should consider?
What was your last major disappointment?

dk/dc/no I won't, whore
What's something that never fails to make you happy?
I'm doing this right now http://www.anatomy-class.org/, but I'd love to find a few more right now.
When was the last time you were bored? What do you do to alleviate that?
I can only seem to find 3 titles actually BY JFK (Profiles,Why England & Nation of Immigrants)
I know Clinton's policies are available on his website but I'd rather book form and preferably primary source. I'm assuming "My Life" is just biographical - or does it get into policy?
How are you? Anything you want to talk about?

DK/DC: What kind of crafty/home improvement things are you going to do next you have time?
( Collapse )
So, does anyone have any ideas what it is and why it is there?
