Say you go away for ten days, and don't have internet access. When you get back, how many back entries of TQC do you read through? Or do you just pick up from the moment you get back? I've only got as far back as yesterday but it feels like I've been reading for hours.
If you had a 50/50 chance of inheriting a horrible disease that would totally screw you up in middle age, would it affect whether you chose to have kids? Reasons appreciated.
I got a set of ramekins for a Christmas present.
What should I make in them?
are you stupid? or is it I?
its not me...its you
what are your favorite fashion/outfit of the day blogs? what about blogs for crafts and DIY projects?
To your knowledge, what is the purpose of a promise ring?
Do you know anyone with a promise ring?
I have a hard time throwing things away and getting rid of old, childhood toys. I'm not as bad as a compulsive hoarder, its more so that I don't clean often out of laziness, and when I do clean, I feel like keeping things if I like what they remind me of. I'm a "out of sight, out of mind" person and fear forgetting things if I get rid of them.
Are you like this? Have you found a way of dealing with it so that you can have a cleaner, neater space?
Can anyone offer advice as to how I can adjust?
I really love the idea of having a room/living space that has only what I really need.
Today I applied for a credit card and was denied, so I decided to try to get a copy of my credit report. I went through annualcreditreport.com, and chose Equifax as the company through which I'd receive my report. However, while I was filling in my information, it said something along the lines of "It appears as though you took out a mortgage in or around November of 2007. Please submit information regarding that so that we may better identify you" or something along those lines, and then asked me a series of questions about it.
The only problem is I never took out a mortgage. I was 14 in November of 2007, so there's no way I could have. I spoke to my mom and she said it absolutely wasn't her, so I'm kind of stuck here. I'm going to file a dispute but I have no evidence of this mortgage existing, except for what the site told me. All the departments dealing with this stuff are closed today, so I'll have to do it tomorrow, but I really don't know exactly what else to do.
So, TQC, any advice? Has this ever happened to you? Who all should I contact, and is there any hope of it being erased from my credit score?
I posted this to beauty101 but they are pretty slow, so here it goes again.
Does anyone here have skillz doing regular polish manicures? I'd really like to do a super nice manicure, like the ones in the zoya swatches in that other post down there. I can get consistency fine, but have trouble making the cuticle area look nice. I always paint all the way to the skin, maybe that is part of my problem. I just want it to look like a professional did it without having to go to one. Any tips for me?
Do you have any parts that you feel are out of proportion with the rest of you?
I think my ears are to big!
What type of Dr. do I go to if I'm having issues with my shoulder/upper arm/collar bone?
And while we're at it, anyone have any suggestions as to what this could be? I didn't have any specific injuries, that I can recall. About 5-6 weeks ago I was doing some super cleaning of my house, including cleaning the ceilings around the fan in the bathrooms. I woke up the next morning kind of sore in multiple places, I assumed from just bending/reaching weird for hours while cleaning. One of these places was in my left shoulder, around the rotator cuff. It's been hurting since, but not always bad. It was hurting whenever I'd move my shoulder or lift my arm. Then the rotator cuff stopped hurting and now it feels like there's almost a pressure built up in my arm, halfway between the shoulder and elbow. In addition to that there's aching/pain in the collarbone from my shoulder to my neck. It aches mildly all the time, but hurts badly when I sleep since I put my arm under my pillow.
ETA: I just got insurance and do not yet have a primary doctor. That may be important info :)
How do you think of the sports players, wrestlers especially the fighting sports combats' lethal injury or death happenings? When Karate, wrestling, boxing jyudo, those athletes or wrestlers try hard to win the match, they sometimes inescapably kill or hurt the opponents. Do you think the defendants should be prosecuted?
Why did I just randomly vomit?
"Rightful liberty is unobstructed action according to our will within limits drawn around us by the equal rights of others. I do not add 'within the limits of the law' because law is often but the tyrant's will, and always so when it violates the rights of the individual."
How are you a tyrant?
How are you today? Is there anything you want to talk about? Any recent impressive accomplishments that you'd like us to get excited over?
I want to do a weekend trip in February somewhere in Europe.
The conditions are
b) not a major city
c) not italy or spain.
Any ideas tqc?
I just got myself an itouch while telling myself that this will help me track my spending, my eating, and maybe help with school.
Did you find life easier after getting your itouch/phone/portable device? How?
In regards to the spennding/eating/school, are there any apps you use for these things that you'd recommend?
Is there a non related app you think everyone should know about?
I was hoping to also be able to use it to make notes and compare prices between nearby grocery stores (wal-mart vs save-on vs farmers market); how should I best go about this?
Who's heading back to school soon? Taking anything fun? Taking anything that you're dreading?
i'm looking for something that will sync my outlook contacts with my linkedin contacts. is there anything like this, that would be able to automatically update my contacts' info as their jobs/information/etc changes??
(for a blackberry if that matters)
What sorts of things do you collect? Will you post pictures of your collections?
isn't "blustery" just a lovely word?
How bad can tetanus really be that it's worth the smacked in the arm with a wrench feeling the shot gives you?
Why have you had stitches in the past?
I just got stitches yesterday because I cut my hand while working. Once in fifth grade I got stitches because I slipped on a rug into the corner of a wall.
How are ways you distinguish what your gut is telling you?
I have some huge decisions to make, and I've been thinking about them so much that I don't even know what my gut instinct is telling me anymore :(
Do you ever use an online alias?
eta: I meant...like a different first and last name. Not your LJ name....
What do you do when you're feeling sad to cheer yourself up? Because I am, and idk how to :(
I have a million pet peeves and I'm not sure if I could ever put them on a scale of which peeves me the most.
But anyway, I'm really aggravated right now by one/two of mine. Do you have a greatest pet peeve? Are you pissed off right now because of one?
Did tickets for Comic Con go on sale yet? How would I get them? Their website is really confusing to me.
Have you ever developed feelings for another person while you were in a monogamous relationship? If so, how (if at all) did you cope with those feelings?
My friend is taking me to some fancy thing and there's valet parking. Do I tip when I drop the car off, too, or only when I pick it up?
What's the fanciest thing you've done lately? (Doesn't have to be expensive or anything, just something you did for yourself to feel like a ~lady or gentleman~.)
those of you in long distance relationships - how often do you see your boyfriend/girlfriend?
Added question 2 - what do you consider long distance? (my friend says my relationship isn't long distance (even though he lives in another country) because its only a 3 hour trip)
Readers of TQC, do you know of any interesting non-fiction books out there about different epidemics, like tuberculosis or the black plague, etc? The only one I can think of is about Typhoid Mary.
Who is watching Downton Abbey? Who do you like? Who do you dislike? I love Bates and Anna and I hate O'Brien!!!
I'm sick (after a week) of black hair, so i'm going to take the plunge and use a colour corrector.
I'm anticipating that it'll go back to black if I try to dye over it immediately - is it ok to use a coloured toner or semi-permanent dye immediately after without risking it going back to black?
Those of you that wash your clothes at laundromats...
Do you use In-Building, In-Complex, or Public ones?
Are they coin operated, or card operated?
If card operated, can you refill them at the location?
How many loads to you do at a time?
Do you stay with your clothes the entire time they are washing, or do you leave and return when the timer is up?
If you leave, do you bring all your other items with you or do you leave any behind? (Laundry basket, etc)
If all the machines are full, but some are done or near done, do you leave and return later to see if they're emptied, or do you pull the clothes out and put them to the side?
Any tales of laundry rooms you want to share? Any annoying habits of other users? Have your underwear stolen out of your machine?
