You're in a basement. It's dark and want to go upstairs.

Do you run up the stairs like someone is chasing you? Please tell me I'm not the only one who does this...

And, do you run past windows in your house at night when it's dark outside?

For the parents out there...or anyone really

Situation: You are my parents. You hate my boyfriend. You think he's rude, arrogant, manipulative and generally a waste of life. My boyfriend and I have been together for a year and a few months with no signs of stopping and want to make nice with you. You haven't spoken to my boyfriend in a little under a year, and he's changed a lot. What's the best way to illustrate this and get your acceptance of us being together?

hi, I'm an idiot.

I have huge issues procrastinating and managing my time and I'm extremely distraught about it. When I'm not doing work I should be doing, it's all I can think about, but it rarely gets done immediately before the assignment is due.

I've had this problem since my entrance into middle school and I am now a freshman in college. It's ruining my academic life.

Besides "hey, stop being a lazy ass and making excuses not to do shit," what advice can you offer to help me kick this habit I've latched onto for the past 6-7 years?

I'm feeling really taken advantage of by my little sister, and I don't know what to do about it.

My mom's out of town and I'm pretty much babysitting my trouble-maker 17 year old sister. There were all these rules about how she wasn't allowed to have anyone come over, but I've been kinda lax about it, letting her friends come and see her after school, etc. She was being pretty good too, up until now. She has two friends over (one male, one female) and has just informed me (not asked me) that they are spending the night. It's a school night for both of us. I can't stay up to make sure sex/booze/drugs don't happen (which is, yes, a possibility, there's a reason she's 17 and needs a babysitter) and she really shouldn't be staying up late either, which she will if she has friends over. Plus I feel like she's just taking advantage of my niceness so far. I've tried telling her that they need to go home but she keeps coming up with excuses ("So and so already told her parents she's spending the night here, they'll be mad if she goes home" etc.) and now they're pretty much ignoring me, and I have no idea how to throw two teenagers out of my house. I thought of just calling mom and telling her, but she'd be angry with me for letting them come over in the first place.

I feel really stupid about this. I'm (supposedly) an adult, I should be able to handle a bunch of teenagers, but I can't physically make them do anything, and they've stopped listening to me.

What should I do?

ETA: Nevermind, guys. I got her to sit down and talk to me, told her how I felt, and got her to send the boy home. I also talked her into turning off the loud music and watching a movie with the girl on the other side of the house, so I can go to bed. Crises averted, but thanks to those who answered anyway. :)

So I just moved my Mum in with me due to her ill health. Well it was about a month ago. Anyways, she brought her 10yr old German Shepherd Buster. In all that time I couldn't hoover cos my hoover was broke and I only just had the money to get it fixed today. Busters hair is pretty much everywhere! And its gotten stamped into the carpets so the hoover won't lift it.

Any ideas how I can budge this? I'm set to shave Buster and go for wooden floors all over.

Honeymoon Advice

So, some friends and I are putting together a little scrapbook of honeymoon advice for a girlfriend of ours who is getting married in a couple of weeks. This girl is still a virgin so we thought she might need some words of wisdom.
So far, we have:
1. Purell does NOT make a good lubricant
2. If you notice that the ceiling needs to be painted, you are NOT paying attention.
TQC, can you help me think of some more advice to give to this delicate flower?
The more hilarious and outlandish, the better!!

Jury Duty...

I was just notified that I've been selected for jury duty (and the first thing that popped in my head was a recent post about it on TQC where I wished I would be selected).

I'm actually excited about jury duty. Does this make me a dork?

Any tips on how I could be selected? I'd love to have a break from work.

Do you ever want to say to a shop assistant "You sir, are a lying scumbag!" ?
What did they lie about?

I went in to a store to get Star Trek: the Next Generation DVDs, which i had seen in there less than a month ago. I asked the shop assistant where the TNG DVDs were and he said that they had been shipped back to the company to be put into cardboard boxes rather than the plastic ones they were in. But when i had seen them not even a month before, they were in the cardboard boxes he said they were shipped back to be put into. lying scumbag!

CSS; Lunch; Nail Polish Stain; Photo Paper

1. I'm pretty familiar with using CSS, both to customize LJ and when making regular websites, but I have a question I'm hoping someone here can answer. If you take a look at my journal, the following code is used so that all userpics show up with a border around them:
.userpic {
padding: 5px;
background-color: #ffffff;
border-style: solid;
border-width: 1px;
border-color: #E5E5E5;
margin-bottom: -5px;
Does anyone know how I'd go about using that same thing for images on a regular website? Not every image, just thumbnails of photos that can be clicked on to enlarge the photo. Is it possible to do that or something similar, without having to Photoshop borders on to each and every thumbnail?

2. Which should I make for lunch, a tuna fish sandwich on toasted bread, or a pizza sub?

3. Any idea how to get a 2+ year old nail polish stain out of carpet?

4. What photo printing paper would you recommend? I have an HP Photosmart 8250, and the few pieces of paper that came with it were pretty great (dried fast and didn't have any ink bubbles), but I kind of don't want to pay what HP is asking on their website. Are there any brands I can get at Wal-Mart or an office supply store that dry relatively quickly and don't cost that much, as well? "JetPrint Photo Premium Paper" takes forever to dry.

Instead of deleting, it just transports my cursor thing to the beginning of the text that I highlighted. Also, I can't highlight over text and replace the text with the new text that I type in. Instead it just adds what I'm typing right next to the highlighted section. Any ideas on how I could fix it?


My boyfriend's professor the other day said it usually takes 360 copulations for a pregnancy to occur (without birth control, etc.). That seems horribly incorrect to me.

When I was about 8 years old, my grandfather passed away and left me money on a CD in the bank. I'm not allowed to touch the money until I'm 18 years old to buy a car and pay for school.

Supposedly the interest earned from my CD is going to my mother instead of back into the account (I think my grandfather made it like this in his will).

Well the thing is, taxes have to be paid on the interest earned on the CD. My mother has been filed me by myself since I was 11 years old. Under me solely, not under her name.

Earlier this month, I received a letter from the IRS claiming that I owe a bunch of back taxes from a few years. My mother never paid the crap! So I call the IRS to see what the hell is going on bc when I ask my mom she tells me nothing.

The IRS told me that I am responsible for paying the taxes since it's under my name solely. So I owe taxes as far back as 2001 WHEN I WAS 11 YEARS OLD!!!

How the hell is an 11 year old child liable to pay their own taxes?

I filed my taxes this year by myself for the first time. The income earned on my taxes was the money that my MOTHER is receiving. So I had to pay $113 this year for the money that she is getting. On top of that, I was supposed to be getting a little bit of money back but the state took it right away bc of the back taxes that I (or my mother) owes.

Please SOMEONE tell me that this is complete bullshit. How am I liable for paying taxes when I was 11 freakin' years old?

Anyway, on my way to school today there were a bunch of cars in the church parking lot so I turned in and looked for the car he drove last year during high school. Is that totally creepy of me?

Does anyone know any short vacation areas (3-4 days) my family and I could go to? Anywhere in the U.S. is fine. My parents want to go to Mammoth Cave, but... I don't really want to, so they're asking me for other suggestions.

Any like...breathtaking sights like a forest or a mountain-y place?

My kitten is okay, you guys! He's kept food down for over three hours, he's playing, biting and running around!

What FABULOUS thing has happened for you, TQC, that you did not expect today, or maybe you were preparing for the opposite?

What big slap of joy has left you giddy?!?

EDIT: I cried hard, I cried hard happiness when I watched my kitten eat after I scoped out the apartment for barf, and realized he'd held down his lunch.

So, what SERIOUSLY happy tears have you cried? What were they for?

1. Do you get angry when you see pregnant women smoking? How about drinking?

2. I plan on writing my SO silly little notes to leave places - other than idly slipping them into his pants pockets, where could I leave them where he would find them AFTER I left the scene?

3. What's the last piece of homework you worked on? If you don't have homework, what's the last piece of work you worked on?

4. Are you the type of person who forgets what you ate for breakfast that morning?

5. What was the last illegal thing you did?

I have just noticed I am very passionate about the environment.  I don't even know where to begin with volunteering and jobs! What are some things you can study in college about the environment? What majors? What types of jobs will that get me? What are some bigger organizations that have to do with helping the environment that might be around my around area (Southeastern CT) that might allow me to volunteer?

How can I make an animated .gif of a movie clip that's .wmv? Are there any on-line tutorials of it?

Is there any way in which I can prevent my brother from downloading limewire (or anything similar)? I uninstall it and he just installs it again next time he is on the computer. I have an administrator account on our computer. We use windows xp and firefox if that makes any difference.

The reason being really, I am worried that he does not know how to avoid viruses. About a month ago our computer suddenly started going really slowly (I mean, CRAZY slow, taking taking minutes to change application etc) and I CANNOT for the life of me work our why. I have did a virus scan practically every day, nothing comes up. Our hard drive is less than half full and I've run check for spyware and ad ware. I've deleted all unnecessary and/or suspicious things but it's still going unbelievably slowly. What of earth can it be ??

as always, thanks in advance.

On a roll!

I thought of another good question that I'd love to hear all of your answers for.

A movie is being made about your life up to this point and you get to pick three songs that are included in the soundtrack.  One is the intro, the second is a significant event in your life, and the last song is the ending.  Which songs would you pick and why?

1. Opening: What a Good Boy (What a good girl) - Bare Naked Ladies.  There is a part in the song where they talk about the boy/girl being born with high expectations.  I feel like some people had high hopes and expectations while some didn't. 

2. Significant Event: Shephard Moon - Enya.  This was one of my Granny Franny's favorite songs.  She died December 26, 2006 of lung cancer and I find myself increasingly saddened by her loss.  We were close and she wasn't your average meak mild granny - she swore, she wore those old golf hats with style, was an exceptional writer.  I just would want people to see that she contributed to so many good parts in my life and has shaped me to be the person I am.

3. Closing: The Final Fantasy Theme.  I'd play this because I feel guilty for not playing it at my wedding reception.  I was dodging the nerdiness of my husband and was avoiding nerdom in the wedding even though its who he is and I love it. The closing song would be playing in the back ground as we had our typical chats where he was making me laugh hysterically while interupting me while I'm trying to be serious.

What are your favourite sad songs?
Do you have any 'man (or woman) and his (or her) piano' recommendations? (Kinda like Ben Folds' Songs For Silverman)

Do you like Tori Amos?
What do you think of her new album?
Do you think I'm a bitch for calling her Tori Emo (to piss off my co-worker who listens to her obsessively)?
