Tell me about your Christmas tree preferences, TQC!
Do you put up a Christmas tree?
Do you prefer real or fake?
Which do you actually use?
If you have animals, do they mess with it?
Do you have a decoration theme?
What's your favorite ornament?
Will you tell me about your work Christmas/holiday party last year? Was it fun? What was the entertainment?
What was your favourite secret santa or gift exchange present? The worst? (I once got a bacon lollipop...gross)
Anyone else from TQC want in on the TQC Christmas gift exchange? The more the merrier!
Bonus: Do you dress fancy for the holidays or make an effort to look festive for the season? Pictures?
dk/dc: Do you hate Christmas or something?!
Do you have any irrational superstitions?
Do you regret any of your tattoos or body mods? Are there any you have to keep covered for work or some other reason?
Inspired by the hand of god tattoo I'm getting on my wrist to ward off the evil eye and how my current office manager will not be happy. Our boss doesn't give a shit. I'm leaving at the end of January so it doesn't really matter anyway. I don't have any other tattoos and this is the only one I'm interested in getting.
If you were going to have a small tattoo, about 5cm long, and you didn't mind it being on display, where would you put it?
When do you use the cold cycle?
When do you use the warm cyle?
When do you use the hot cycle?
you guys remember that neighbor that was chopping *something* upstairs??
well, I ran into her this morning and she asked me;
"do my dogs bark all day and night?"
"well, no, they DO bark but it's not a problem"
"oh ok good"
"OH--I have to know, what is that chopping noise I hear every night??"
*laughs* "Oh my dog has special dog food that I have to chop up for him into smaller pieces!"
"OH my God thank you, it doesn't bother me I just HAD to know!"
*laughs again* "well nice meeting you!"
SO--there you have it! It was dog food! lol.
ok now for a question...
what is ONE thing you had growing up that you really wish you kept?
Do you have more than one blog? I have one with Word Press but my blog here is old so I keep coming back.
My mum's coming to visit for a week and i've bought tickets to Cirque du Soleil for her second to last night. How should I best present the tickets? When she arrives, on the day? (FYI we are staying 2 hours away and travelling to a closer hotel during the day so it may mean we need to leave a little earlier.
Have you ever been to the cinema to see the same movie more than once?
What did you see? How many times did you see it?
I'm going to see Thor 2 at the cinema tonight for the second time because my friends partner won't go with her.
I know people use to go to the cinema to see the same film more than once a lot more often in the 70s/80s. My dad went to see the first Star Wars film 14 times.
I have to get a gift for a 7-8 year old boy that I know next to nothing about. I only know that he likes to draw, but I got him a little art set already. He doesn't have any gaming systems or anything like that, so video games are out. What kind of stuff do kids that age like? Do you have any specific recommendations on what I can get him? The budget is about $20. I'd rather not just give him a gift card.
I teach low-intermediate ESL students. They are all adults. Last week one of my students asked me why Americans are so racist.
How would you respond if someone (especially a non-native speaker) asked you that question?
