Okay, multiple questions here:

1. I'm having a craniotomy next month. Have you ever had a craniotomy? Can you tell me about your experience? Any tips for recovery?

2. I will be staying in the hospital for a while. What should I bring that I might not have already thought of? What would you bring for an extended hospital stay?

3. I will be shaving my head. Not because I need to for the surgery, but because I just cannot see myself wanting to deal with hair care during recovery, and my hair gets so matted when I'm staying in the hospital. Have you shaved your head? Show me pictures? Tips for keeping a bald head warm?

4. Got any good websites for buying wigs? Preferably not expensive real-hair wigs. Cosplay wig sites are awesome too.

idk/idc/i have never had my skull opened or been bald: could you show me your favorite gif?

Root canals--getting to the root of the problem [Oct. 16th, 2014|07:49 pm]

I'm going to have my first root canal tomorrow.

Has anyone here had one before? What's it like? I've been in extreme pain for a few weeks so I can't imagine it being much worse than the pain I'm in now.

Would you let a stranger do a tarot card for you if it was for free? Assume that it is really free and that the person just does it for fun, not, "I'm going to read your cards for you for free...but the spiritual cleansing I will need to perform will cost you..."

Have you ever had your fortune told? Was any of it accurate?

What is the biggest scam that you have ever witnessed or heard of?

follow through with exercise [Oct. 16th, 2014|10:08 am]

How to you get yourself to exercise when you tell yourself you are going to at a certain time?
How do you get over that moment of just deciding you don't feel like it and knowing it will make you feel better?
I've tried the buddy system and signing up for classes, but everytime I let myself down it gets harder and harder to get back on track.
Any advice for what's worked for you?

Do you count calories or just go by serving size? Or both? If you count calories, how do you keep track of them? If you use an app for this, what is it? How do you input items that don't list calories (say food bought off a hot bar, food you've prepped with other ingredients into one item (ex: chili where you put in ground beef, canned beans, canned tomatoes) etc)?

Stalking [Oct. 15th, 2014|01:11 am]

I've been the target of organized gang stalking for over twenty years.  The stalkers are numerous and usually strangers.  Why is this happening to me, and how can I stop it?

Do you ever find the depiction of alien races on star trek to be racist?
If so, why?

Can you think of any specific episodes or instances where you felt it was particularly distasteful?

Two unrelated questions [Oct. 14th, 2014|09:22 pm]

I took two Excedrin extra strength today at work for a bad headache, and after about an hour I started feeling really weird. Very wired, easily distracted, even kind of manic. Next time I take it I'm going to just take one to see if it gets rid of my headache w/out the weird "high," but I was wondering if any of the Dr. TQCs knew why it would have this effect on me, or has experienced something similar?

What credit card would you recommend to someone with good credit who doesn't need a large credit line (still would be nice to have a decently low interest rate though) and that has cash back or gift card rewards (definitely don't need air miles)? I was thinking about the Discover card especially and was wondering if you have it, would you recommend it?

I have a crush on a girl I've been talking to for a couple weeks now. We've hung out twice, and I will be seeing her again tomorrow. She's a little hard to read, but I know she likes me at least a little bit lol. I'd like to do something "cute" for her, just to drive the point home that I'm interested in her without scaring her off. Any ideas?

Or is this a bad idea?

I'm on my way to Denver for the week. I have previously gone to the zoo and the planetarium. I am staying near downtown and will not have a car. What should I do or places to check out while there? Thanks.

Bad taste party [Oct. 13th, 2014|04:53 pm]

What would you wear to a bad taste party?

I got invited to one and it may sound arrogant but I don't think I own stuff like that. I prefer muted, dark colours, I own nearly no prints and don't want to buy stuff just for one party.

I've googled and people advised to wear brightly coloured clashing clothes, with leopard/tiger print, terrycloth stuff, or sweats with "greasy" hair, tattoo necklace and aldi plastic bags as purse and lots of garish eye make-up and dark lipliner.

I have a pair of purple Adidas sweatpants, maybe I should combine that with thick white socks and black pumps, an Aldi plastic bag? What about the top?

Photography [Oct. 13th, 2014|07:09 am]


I paid a photographer her going rate for a 1hr family photo shoot plus rights to the "best" images from the shoot on a CD.  When I got the CD back, there were about 50 images, most of which I like well enough but there are several where she had her camera focused on the background instead of the subject, making them pretty useless to me as photos.  This was not artistic license, trust me.I didn't choose this person for her skill as a photographer alone.  I chose her for her price, availability, and the fact that she allowed us rights to uncompressed photos so that I could do some work to them myself if they needed it.  I did think that her pictures were ok not great but I never imagined that she would turn over images that are really blurry as finished product.I have no desire to re-shoot anything with her nor do I expect any sort of discount or refund.  I have enough pictures that I can use. My question is whether I should let her know about these images that I feel are subpar?  I feel like as a client, she deserves honest feedback from me but I'm not sure if would be welcome or not.  If you are a photographer, would you welcome feedback about the quality of your work, even if it was negative?One of the images in question is here.  Excuse the wonky faces, I take total responsibility for that lol. I was going to embed but the photo was already on this site and my skills suck so.

Mainly for UK people [Oct. 11th, 2014|12:23 am]

How much political savvy do you have? (Not much)

Do you know anything about UK politics? (I don't know much apart from local politics, but I always vote.) I vote locally.

Can you give me a precis of the NHS goings on?

DK/DC: Last night, I had one of those crazy messed up dreams that even if you wake up from it, you go back into it. In the dream, I was a contract killer, and I ended up dying. Have you ever killed anyone in a dream? Have you ever died in a dream?
