How do you want to get your story?
The eternal debate, is it better to read the book or watch the movie? You decide!
How would you rather spend your Memorial Day weekend?
You have to do something with the time off, right? Are you going to spend it at home or camping out?
Which kind of job would you rather have?
I just started my summer job. At this point, there isn't anything to do really. Later on, I'll be busy all the time. Which would you rather have though?
Which 'advanced' hot dog do you choose?
OK, hot dogs are deadly enough, but who wants a simple hot dog when you can more with your dog?
Are you 6???
Nah, I just like to act that way some times.
Which River is more bad ass?
If you're not into sci fi shows, you may not know who I'm talking about, but River Tam from Firefly and River Song from Doctor Who are both pretty bad ass, but only one can win. Which is it?
Who is more adorable?
I know there's some frustration about 'who's cuter' ToTs, but I just want to show off the niece and nephew.
How do you listen to your music?
Buds are easier to carry around until you need them, but the sound quality and findability of headphones are superior. Which do you choose?
Which would you rather make?
Folding paper can be hard, and possibly rewarding. Which do you prefer?
which instrument makes better music?
It's not a fair question, but I'll ask it anyway...
Who is the better man?
Yes they are the same person, but they are very different.
Which would you rather have?
Turtles are ok, but a little boring, but could you keep up with the pizza bills with the TMNTs around?
What should I have for lunch?
Neither's that great for you, but I'm hungry and I can't decide. Help me out.
So can anyone write because I just might do one...
You should send a message to Rebecca. She's the editor for the site. I'm not sure if they are looking for more writers, but it doesn't hurt to ask.
(This is an optional question. If too personal then don't bother answering because its understandable) Do you get paid for any of these blogs or being on This or That? I just think all of it is pretty cool so why not make something big out of something small? :)
Not a problem. The articles that are written are paid work. It's a new addition to ToT since the beginning of the year. I think it's been a geat move so far. So many of the writers are just plain awesome.
Hey I just tried to go on your website and its not letting me :( whats up with that?
It's a glitch with the system. I've actually got two sites listed and there's no break between the two links so it doesn't work. You can either go to lockheed40.blogspot.com or storypoemplay-a-week.tumblr.com
Who do I show up as? I do have multiple accounts. Bug?
It just says "Someone has asked you a quesiton."
Beuller's absences. Did you see that the glass house is for sale? Presumably they fixed the window
Nope, didn't see it. Did you see that you pop up in the emails as someone rather than Karla?
9 times?
9 times? huh?
How about a post on how my iPhone autocorrect is ruining my use of apostrophe?
I might be able to do that, but I have zero experience with the iPhone. Maybe we could do it as an interview. I'm sure if nothing else, I can put something together.
Thanks, I think you are our most regular user who isn't a Belieber. Thinks are great in CO, lots of great snow, which is all you can ask for in a ski community. How is life for you? Teaching a lot?
Well, I really do enjoy the site, and not just because you guys want to pay me. lol. I'm spreading the word every chance I get. I just finished a long-term position that was about 10 weeks so now I'm just trying to remind schools that they should call me in.
Next time the site is broke and we're clulessly enjoying the snow, would you send an email?
lol, yeah, I only just realized it when I made the ToT complaining about a lack of pictures. If I'd noticed it sooner I'd have said something. I hope everything else is going well in the ToT family.
Just wondering: Harry Potter or Twilight?
Harry Potter. I read Twilight, but didn't enjoy it so I quit reading the series.
I'll try to next time I get the chance to come on. I just finished checking around 150 emails from T.o.T.! I'm sure your articles are good so I'm looking forward to reading it. I'll be sure I do.
That's understandable, get to them when you get a chance. It's definitely good to see you around again.
Hey! How's it been? Been a while.
Hey man, welcome back. Things are good here. What about for you? You should check out the articles I've had posted here. I think you'll enjoy them.
are you channeling Madonna now?
Actually it's Christina Aguilera. My account is tied to my Facebook so whatever my profile picture is on one is the same for the other. When I asked my FB friends what my pic should be, someone sent me this. What can I say, I'm an obliging person some times.
Hi :), Do u have a picture of ron ? from harry potter ? Cause i love harry potter. LOL ;)
Well, I only have one specific picture of Harry Potter in his adventures. I'll put that one up for a while. (It took me a moment to figure out why you were asking. Thanks for the suggestion.)
Every time I see your name I think of Lockheed Martin, is that wrong?
Not completely. This is the name on an email address that I've had for a long time. When I was trying to come up with the name I was extremely into the X-men, especially Shadowcat. If you know the comics at all then you probably know she has a pet dragon she named after the X-jet which is a Lockheed stealth jet.
thanks a lot lockheed that really clears things up. I've read and re-read the writing process paper but some things were a little ambiguous. Last question I promise lol: So, say I'm doing an infographic, which according to the paperwork pays 100 plus, does the flowchart have to be original or can it be a flowchart that is in the pubic domain and then you add your own original analysis/commentary. And when you submit a topic idea typically how long does it take the editor/rebecca to approve?
That is definitely a Rebecca question. Just follow this link: http://thisorthat.com/u/Rebecca
thanks how do i get approved? I already sent my w9 and all that. Do I just wait for rebecca to respond and the admin tools link to pop up? Lastly when you say I have to have my topics approved first do you mean I'm supposed to send rebecca an e-mail with several titles like for instance I'm a tech category writer So do I send her something ike " IBM Watson to compete on Jeopard!" or does that happen after I see the admin tool link in the blog draft submission. Sorry I'm just confused lol P.S is there a way to set up direct deposit with them
Rebecca should have sent you a form called 'writing process for this or that' when she sent you the W9 form. Basically though, you can just shoot her an email and say: 'i'm thinking about this idea. Do you want me to do it?' I'm sure the computer on Jeopardy will be a yes. I usually submit an idea and start working on it. Of course anything they don't want I put on my own blog instead. If you have more questions, feel free to ask, or message Rebecca here.
hey man I see that you are a writer here. I was accepted too an filled out the forms so I'm wondering can I just start writing or do I need to wait for them to enable my account because I dont see the admin tools link yet
Well, first you have to have your topics approved by Rebecca since someone may be working on that, but if you've got an idea, there's no reason you can't start the process while you're waiting. Oh, and congratulations.
I do unnamable things to get you back on the leader board and you don't do anything on day one of Feb?
Well, I've been hard at work on my current project, "Why are these shows on TV?" Don't worry, I'm about to take a break and but out the ToTs in just a minute (I still have 19 here before the second hits)
lolz ushers list! haha that is preety funny!
I know. It was probably my best laugh of 2011 to date.
ughh u toke my spot on the top ushers list! lolz jk
I just had the best laugh ever. Thank you so much. I couldn't figure out what you meant by the Ushers list. Sorry about taking your spot. I was always there, just invisible.
Nicee! Well ToT might not see me in a while so ima see youguys when I see you. :)
What's up with that? Where are you off to/up to?
Nice to have you back on top! Why were you missing though?
I'm now a contributor to ToT so I'm not eligible for prizes. Someone with some connections argued to get me back on the list though.
I'm arguing to get you back on lederboard!
Thanks I appreciate it, but either way, I'll be a part of ToT and very visible whether anyone sees me on the board or not.
Ah, now you've gone pro, gotcha
Yeah, that is correct. I haven't had anything published yet, but there are a couple of posts waiting for final approval. I'm pretty excited about it even if my name isn't on the leaderboard anymore.
I just wanted 2 tell you tht your not on the Top User's list anymore.. see whats up with that..
Thanks for letting me know. I'm pretty sure I already know what's going on, but I can't explain it right now. Do me a favor though, and finish the month as the top guy, ok?
Hey. Um I just wanted to ask have u made any tots?
Yes, quite a few. If you look on my profile page you can see them listed under my picture.
How many hours do you stay on Tot ?
It's not really that much time. I do stop by the site often during the day depending on what I have going on. Also, I'll probably jump on if I come up with a ToT that I think will be fun.
Yellow lockheed40! My account name is dbqwerty. I just "asked Anonymously" to try things out (lol). I applaud you for being the top user on this or that. As you can see, I am a beginner learning quickly on how to use this site properly. In some cases I cannot do everything myself so knowing that you are so experienced I have a question for you. How is it that I am supposed to edit my creations / uploaded TOTs? An example is that 1 (or 2) different TOTs I made have at least one picture missing. It would be greatly appreciated if you help me. Thanks :D
Well, I'm not sure ToTs are able to be edited yet. The best person to ask is matt. If you aren't connected to him, you can find him until the followers and following on my page. He is the guy responsible for all of the site maintenance. He will have the answer to those kinds of questions.
ur always commenting on peoples post, lay off
sorry you feel that way. I'm just trying to be part of the fun.
You've been here for 28 days, and your a top user, you'r probably the biggest nolifer ever created.
Nah, I'm just persistent. Oh, and thanks for being Anonymous it makes if easier not to worry about your opinion.
New pic!
Yeah, my ToT account is linked to my Facebook so when I chancge my pic on FB it changes here. I like to change the pic frequently, probably more often if I decide to do my radio show at my Alma Mater this semester. Of course then I'll have pics of bands that I'm playing too. It shouldn't be too confusing unless I open with Christina Aguilera or Nicki MInaj.
Hey, new pic!
What is the rainbow hued article of clothing you are wearing? I thought it was a tee, but the center gathers lead me to question if it is a cape or giant novelty bow tie.
When I was a Resident Director I threw a Mad Hatter's Tea Party, and I was the Hatter. I found the perfect hat, but just had a black jacket, so I made a massive bow tie with the stripped fabric.
