Tomorrow morning you get kidnapped. No one sees it happening or anything.

How long would it likely take for someone to realize that you are missing?
How long would it likely take for someone to get concerned enough to file a missing person report about you?

My son likes techno music, or wants to, if that's even a thing really anymore. He wants really electronic, bleepy bloopy robot music. As best I can tell he doesn't care any about bass or rhythm or mood or any real musicality, as long as it says, "Beep bop boop." I use as your example the weird beepy part of Safety Dance, or the musical stylings of R2D2 in that one song he recorded.

Will you recommend me some artists or songs for download acquisition?

TQC, for the first time in my life i've been having a hard time making friends (or meeting people i can click with and are comfortable enough to follow up on). it's been a year since i've moved to a new city and i barely have friends of my own.

during an argument, my bf told me i take myself too seriously and it was preventing me from making friends. i couldnt argue back because i realised how true it was.. i am easily irritated and annoyed, and im not the cheerful, happy go lucky person that i was when i had friends around me.

how do i get out of this? how do i stop taking myself so seriously and just loosen up? it's affecting my internship as well because the director keeps telling me i need to be open and ask questions and feel free to talk to people in the office and learn from them, instead of just focusing on the tasks i'm assigned.

Is there a word for noticing you have most/all of a group of symptoms, but then deciding that you do not, in fact, have whatever it is you were reading about? Like, you're on the verge of being a hypochondriac, but then stop at the last minute?

If not, what do you think it should be?

How come I feel incredibly guilty about calling in sick to work when I am a) actually incredibly ill with a stomach thing and b) actually incredibly ill with a stomach thing and have a job in food service?

What do you do to feel better when you stay home sick?

What is the most memorable culinary experience you have ever had?

It could be something amazing or horrible, or something unusual that you have eaten.
I had tambaqui from the Amazon when I visited Brazil, and the fresh vegetables were just so amazing. Simply delicious and unforgettable even though it was over a decade ago, it was THAT good.

I know this is a variation on a pretty common question, but I went back 100 entries and didn't see it, so here I am.

Readers of TQC: when you were in school (especially middle/high school), what were some of your favorite books? Not necessarily the ones you had to read for class, but the ones you checked out of the library or read on your own?

(I'm compiling a list of books that I definitely want to have in my classroom if and when I actually get my own classroom.)

Non-readers of TQC: I'm sorry. I'm sure there are other questions out there for you to answer.

Say you're leaving the country for a year in 2 and a half months. You meet pretty much the perfect guy in your hometown. What would TQC do?

Given that it's pretty much too late for me, if I wanted to cook a healthy (he's a fitness instructor) but impressive meal for said guy, what should I cook?

What are you procrastinating on right now?
I'm supposed to be doing math but instead I'm marathoning Star Trek: TNG.

Mossflower by Brian Jacques

Apparently tons of people have never heard of/seen Treasure Planet.
The same goes for Atlantis: The Lost Empire and Brother Bear.

What movies are you shocked to find out no one has seen/heard of?
Are there any super popular movies you've not seen?

I have never seen Star Wars, but I usually just pretend I have to avoid hearing about it.
