DK? Does anyone in your family get really emotionally involved while watching sports on tv? How do they show it? Any funny stories?
DN/DK: If you've got a quandary about whether to throw out a book, will you post the title here and we'll tell you what to do?
What does 'It's all Greek to me' mean?
'An apple a day keeps the doctor away'?
'Never look a gift horse in the mouth'?
'A rolling stone gathers no moss'?
'A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush'?
'Don't put all your eggs in one basket'?
What song do they play?
Where are you from?
bureaucracy is probably my worst offender, as of late.
Anyone have weight issues AS A SIDE EFFECT of meds they take? How do you deal with people's reactions to your weight? Do you tell them "I'm actually on Blahblah because of XYZ Disorder"? Do you just smile and nod as they launch into suggestions for their ideal diet and exercise regimen for you? Something else
Everyone from my landlady to my new ob/gyn both theoretically KNOWS I'm on lithium and at the same time utterly fails to see how that has any connection to my being overweight, and go right on yakking about "calories in, calories out" like I'm 10 years old. When there are decades of patient data showing that hey, the drug has a very real effect.

What pets would you like to have? What pets (if any) do you already have? Names/pics!
Your SO invited you to lunch at a new restaurant. He/she gives you the directions how to get there. As you're approaching the building, you realize that it's not a restaurant at all, but the studio for the Maury Povich show. You doublecheck the address. Yep. This is the place your SO invited you to without revealing what the place really was beforehand. What do you do?
What kind of music is it, and what is your instrument? Or do you sing?
What would you title it?
Which House are YOU?
Which House is your favourite?
My university/department keeps scheduling events and announcing them less than a week in advance, as if students don't have jobs or prior engagements they may need to schedule around. Example: I would love to go to the English awards ceremony, but it's Friday at 3:30 and they just sent out the email today. WTF ENGLISH DEPARTMENT.
DK/DC: if you could eat anything right now, what would you eat? I'm craving a Cuban sandwich. Fortunately I have the fixins for it, so it looks like that craving will be satisfied shortly!
Favorite place to get a burger when you go out?
Do you like comedy/stand-up?
I used to think it was just stand-up that I disliked, but now I think I just don't like live comedy in general. I saw a Second City touring show tonight and thought it was pretty mediocre. And come to think of it, I've hardly ever seen a comedy show that I enjoyed besides Eddie Izzard.
If you took art classes in school, what did you want to get out of them? (Like, did you want a space to doodle, or did you want to play with all the different art materials, or did you want to learn how to do something specific, like draw realistically?)
What did you actually get out of your art classes?
Do you think drawing (not art in general, just drawing in particular) is a skill kids should learn in school?
Are you bored too?
what's the most private thing you're willing to admit here?
what webcam should I get? under $100 please.
Will you loan me $1100 for my lawyer?
Best: KFC. But damn, they're expensive.
Worst: Taco Bell. I count myself lucky if the food is even warm when I get it.

how much do you owe in student loans? do you believe a tuition based education is sustainable or just another form of capitalist idealism?
