Everybody Was Kung Fu Fighting [Nov. 29th, 2015|12:03 am]
The Question Club

Did you go shopping at any black Friday sales? In an actual store, on Friday? Did you score any sweet deals?

No/We don't have black Friday sales/I feel like answering another question: What's your favorite snack for a gaming marathon? (If you don't game, What's your favorite minimally messy snack that's easy to eat one handed.)

The Question Club

I've noticed a lot of people sharing those motivational image thingies on Facebook about relationships, lately... And all of them are 90% about how people in relationships constantly fight (emphasis on "constantly"). They talk about people in relationships always screaming at each other, crying, slamming doors and throwing things, sleeping in separate rooms, and how perfectly normal and healthy it all is because hey, at the end of the day, they're who you come home to and it's true love or whatever.

I've been with my current boyfriend for three years, and I've been living with him for two and a half. In our entire relationship, we've never fought about anything. We've had disagreements on some things, but it's always boiled down to "Okay, I understand where you're coming from, and I don't really agree but I totally get why you feel the way you do." Literally the only argument we've ever had-- and continue to have-- is that no, honey, you can't build a Death Star and man it with thousands of puppies who you trained to shoot laser beams, that's not even in our budget right now.

TQC, am I doing something wrong? Is there some sort of relationship fight quota we've been missing all these years? Are we going to break up because we get along too well? Should I save our relationship by picking a fight with him when he comes home tonight from his 10-hour Black Friday retail shift? (Purely non-serious answers are most definitely welcome.)

Eyeglass wearers unite! [Nov. 27th, 2015|06:25 pm]
The Question Club


So I recently bit the bullet and went in to get my eyes checked...I figured I would need glasses but I did not realize how bad my eyes really were. The woman who did the exam was hesistant to even let me leave without someone else driving.

That said, I bought 5 pairs of glasses and am waiting for them to come in and am wondering, peoples of the TQC :

How many pairs of eyeglasses do you have?

Do you wear regular sunglasses, prescription glasses or clip ons over your eyeglasses?

How do you store them?

Any good websites such as ZenniOptical to purchase online from?

For those who celebrated Thanksgiving last night, what was your favorite dish?

For those who didn't, what's on your Christmas list?

As for me -
I made a roasted brussels sprouts with pecans and cheese dish that was delicious. I think that was my favorite. I also really enjoyed the Rosemary Honey Shoofly Pie.

This year I really want the Keurig Kold (which I know I won't be getting) and a Wii U (which I might be getting.)

The Question Club

If you've taken the test, what were your results? I have yet to take any of the online versions and am not willing to pay for the "real" two hour long version.

Edit: Just finished an online version and got INTP.

Voice Dialer Offline [Nov. 26th, 2015|03:01 pm]
The Question Club

My old mobile broke and I got myself a tablet instead. My old mobile hat its very own voice dial functionality. You said a name, the mobile would dial it. You did not have to be online to do that. It just came that way.

Do you know a good voice dialer app for Android that works without the need to be online?

It's Secret Santa 2015!

Sorry, Secret Snowman 2015. We had a lot of people complain about imposing Santa on those who don't believe. We want to stay progressive

Do you get this nonsense where you work? Do you usually stay within the buying guidelines? Do you ever give passive aggressive gifts when you select a coworker you don't like? Have you received a passive aggressive gift?

Edit. The Christmas tree is now going to instead be referred to as the neutral pine tree. Please refrain from wrapping gifts with Christmas wrapping paper. You know what, don't even wrap them. Any and all fliers referring to the Christmas tree will be promptly removed and used to shame whoever created it. If you don't like it, then go to church and work there

Edit #2: what are you doing to stay progressive this holiday season?

Gift Exchange [Nov. 25th, 2015|08:48 am]
The Question Club

So I'm involved in a couple of different gift exchanges this year. One is in my office and two are online. Do you like internet exchanges more or in person exchanges? I feel like there's a lot more pressure for the in person exchanges which is why I enjoy things like its_a _tqc_xmas more.

Does it bother you when characters don't say "goodbye" to each other on the phone in movies and TV shows?

It bothers me a lot more than it probably should. I understand that it's to save time and keep the action moving forward but I mean, I can't think of very many movies or TV episodes where every single line of dialogue is absolutely crucial to the plot anyway. Surely they could find somewhere else to save those two seconds of screen time. Plus it always kind of takes me out of what I'm watching because people never just hang up on each other in real life (not that movies need to be a 100% accurate reflection of real life, of course). What do you guys think?

So tqc...I live in Illinois...my hometown has a whopping 12,000 people. My current town has 26,000 (not counting college students)...

Tomorrow I find out roughly how long it will be until my boyfriend and I can move to his home town in Georgia ..which has 145,000 people.

Any useful tips for making a transition from small town life to a big city?

How do you feel about anonymous gifts, TCQ?
We have RAG week at my university, which is basically a week of fund-raising activities of various sorts, one of which allows people to make a donation in return for a small gift for someone; a baked good or a rose, mainly. The gifts can have a message with them, or can be anonymous. So I have an anonymous cupcake, which is nice, but also very slightly unsettling on some level; I guess I don't really like the anonymity part of it.
What say you?

DK/DC; what's your favourite baked good? They had cupcakes, brownies, and cookies to choose from, among others; what would you have gone for?

music in commercials. [Nov. 24th, 2015|02:32 am]
The Question Club

Apologies in advance if this lacks cohesion, but I figured, hey, why not try, LOL.

Does anyone remember those theatrical "Beef, it's what's for dinner!" commercials from several years ago?

Do you remember that piece of classical music that usually always accompanied them? It was rather dynamic, as I recall.

If you answered yes to both these questions, and if you're a big enough music nerd, here's a third: Do you know the name of that piece and who composed it?

CALLING ALL TQC DOCTORS. [Nov. 24th, 2015|01:02 am]
The Question Club


Calling all TQC doctors!

I've kind of googled this and really only came up with diabetes, which I don't think is the case.
..My boyfriend sweats a lot at night. Like as soon as he falls asleep. It really inhibits the snuggles that we are accustomed to during waking hours. He's a chubby fella but no doctors' test have shown any diabetes results (the popular google answer?) Granted, he hasn't been there in a while (looking for a network in-state, etc) but does have yearly blood tests due to a heart condition.

Maybe relevent info:
-It's year round. I don't notice it as much in the summer because we're both gross then, but it's getting colder here now. Last night was the first time I've noticced it this year.
-Even if he falls asleep watching netflix on the couch, any part of my that's touching him get's sweaty.
-When he's asleep and sweating he still grabs for the blankets (...stealing them from my anemic self!! we have three layers)
-It's usually a cold-feeling sweat (to me?)
-During the day he sweats like a normal person would.

Serious and non serious answers welcomed. I told him that when he gets his 2016 insurance he has to find a new doctor here, but I'm worried it could be something rare and insane.

DK/DC: How many different continents have you traveled to? -AND/OR- do you have netflix/hulu/amazon? What do you watch?
