Okay, your significant other is someone whom you love dearly and absolutely adore as a person. You make eachother laugh, you're both laid back and well-suited for eachother.

Now, imagine your SO starts doing some unconventional things to make some cash on the side. I'm not talking drugs or murder or anything excessively illegal, but more like selling hot items to people to make money.

They don't have a prior record, so if they were busted the worst case scenerio for a first offense wouldn't be jail time, but they're seriously jeopardizing their future. They say that they don't want to do this for the long-term, but just for a few months.

Do you stay? Why/why not?

For those that like to buy matching panties with thier bras:

If you go to a store that has both a woman's and a plus size rack, are you able to get both from the same rack or do you have to get a bra from one and the underwear from another?

Dear TQC,

My husband just walked out on me and his 2 month old daughter tonight. He left me for another woman. Know any jokes, sites, anything that would cheer me up or possibly make me laugh? This was out of the clear blue, my head is spinning, and I need something to cheer me up a little.

Would you wear a humorous t-shirt which had a picture of Hitler on it?

How about Stalin?

Reason I ask is that I have this t-shirt (only it doesn't have the text on it), which I find hilarious but at the same time feel faintly uncomfortable about wearing out and about due to it having Stalin, Mao, etc on it. I wouldn't wear a t-shirt with Hitler on it, after all.

Going. Freaking. Insane. Now.

Remember when I posted a few weeks ago about the neighbor who played extremely loud, pounding music 18 hours a day and way into the night?

Yeah, well, today I tried to do something about it. Over twelve hours ago I politely asked him to turn it down. That did not work. Then he was still playing REALLY loud music (it literally sounded like a rock concert was taking place one floor up) at 4:30 a.m. so I went to the front desk of my apartment and told a security guard about my problem. He said he would go up and talk to him and I even saw him go up, but apparently he didn't do anything, because the really, really loud music continued on for 45 minutes more. Now it's still playing (at 5:30 a.m.), albeit less loudly, but I can still hear the bass pretty well. Enough to prevent me from sleeping without headphones to drown out the noise, anyway.

I bet the security guard just laughed at me and decided not to do anything. :(

Seriously. WHY, TQC, WHY??????????????????????????????

I'm going to request to be moved to the other side of the building as soon as the office opens, and if they say no I'm going to open a can of whoopass.

Because I am actually going insane now. I have been listening to POUNDING music for over five and a half hours straight and for a couple hours before that, too.

Why does this always have to happen to me????????????????? I KNEW this apartment wouldn't do anything. I love how the disruptive tenants are rewarded while the obedient tenants, like me, are now going to move into a hotel across the street and pay extra money just so I don't go postal.

1. How do you handle compliments affiliated with your appearance?

I can be really weird about it. I get really flustered and embarrassed. I usually end up avoiding eye contact and awkwardly say something along the lines of "Um, thanks." I've gotten a little bit better at accepting them and giving a more heartfelt thank you though.

2. Have you ever rushed/pledged for a fraternity or sorority? If so, which one?

No. I went to the first night of rush last year and after getting packet after packet and all these long talks on everything we had to do I, sudden caught a case of slothfulness and didn't come back the next day.

3. How long have you had your current livejournal?

1.  What happened to the bargaining system? Why can you challenge the price of a car, but not the price of a jacket?  What other sorts of things can you challenge the price of?

1a. I ask because I'm wondering if I can bargain over the price of an aquarium and stand from a privately owned store. And I'm not talking about trying to get it for dirt cheap. But maybe just a deal on the aquarium, hood, light, and stand ( I'd just be happy with a measley $25 off )

advice column: angry pregnant mistress

Dear Prudie,
I was involved with a married man for about two years. In the first few months of dating, he told me he was divorced, with two kids. I later found out he'd lied—he was still married and had three kids. I walked away, but later allowed him back in (stupid me). Now I am pregnant with his child. We are no longer seeing each other, but he still wants to be a father to his child. However, his wife gave him an ultimatum: If he wants to make their marriage work, he can't have anything to do with our child (except sending money). She called me to confirm that we were no longer seeing each other. I told her we were not and apologized for my part in this very awful situation. I understand that her insecurities are what's causing her to not want him to be a father to our child, but I can't help but feel angry toward her. He told her that since he grew up without his father, he didn't want that for any of his kids, and this baby shouldn't be punished for the mistakes he and I made. He is stuck between wanting to make his marriage work and wanting to be a father to our child. What should he do?

—Stuck in a Rut

What do you think of this letter? Do you agree with the letter writer, that their child should not be punished for their mistake? Or do you agree with the wife's demand that he cut off contact as a condition of fixing their marriage? Is the wife being unreasonable? Does the letter writer have any right to be angry at his wife? What should the guy do?

Do you try to be strong? Do you try to not think about it? Do you break down?

crazy so?

I just got a text message from some random girl asking me if I was dating a friend of mine who I spoke to yesterday. Me and him hadn't spoken in about six months until yesterday because he needed someone to help him move his stuff across town I have a truck, so he called me. I was busy yesterday but told him I'd give him a call when I was free. He and I call each other hun.

So apparently the girl is his girlfriend and had gone through the text messages on his phone (while he wasn't around), and decided to message me asking "Hey, my name's "____". Weird question for ya, are you and "____" like dating each other or seeing each other?"

I ended up messaging her back telling her that we weren't dating, that we were old friends and that I was pretty sure that she was his girlfriend (I'd heard about her already). Eventually it was sorted out that I was not someone her boyfriend was cheating on her with.

Who would be a bit miffed or annoyed if their SO did this?

I definitely would...


I'm very strongly wanting to tell him, this isn't outstepping my boundaries as an old friend is it? I think he needs to know that she's checking up on him in this way. Would you tell him?

EDIT #2!!:

Just so you're all given the full story, she said she was just going to use his phone to post a picture (not sure entirely what she means by that) Just figured I'd y'know, full story it up and such

Are you a professional? Do you feel very professional? Do you act very professionally even when not working? I'm just graduating from law school, but feel way too sweet, whimsical, and optimistic to be a real lawyer (although I'm good: won 2/2 cases in my clinic).

I just don't feel... all that grown up. Does it come with time? Or are professionals sometimes normal, quirky people when they take off their professional hats at the end of the day?

Someone has called my cell phone twice in the past 45 minutes. The first time my regular phone was ringing too so I answered that. The second time I pressed the wrong button when I went to answer it. Without calling them back is there some way to find out who it is? I have used a few reverse look-ups and they just tell me the area it is in, one claimed they had the name, but for $15 no thanks.

inspired by Oprah.

Watching Oprah I saw Dr.Oz answer many questions on health staying young. Well Dr. Oz suggests having sex at least 200 times a year and it will increase your life expectancy by years.

I found this to be a surprising number. My boyfriend and I at this point go over and beyond this number but this is the first year we've lived together, but I doubt it will stay this way years to come.

Does anyone think this an achievable number (which is 4 times a week)? Does anyone think they will (according to Oz) increase their life expectancy?

1. Have you ever heard a eulogy that had more to do with the person giving it than the person it was meant to be about?

Anyone want to describe the most selfish person they can think of? (feel free to elaborate and have a little rant, if it helps)

I think my cousin (26 going on 7), who gave a ten minute eulogy at my grandmother's funeral yesterday to his own childhood, my grandmother's old home, an essay he'd written in year 10 about visiting his grandmother's home and all the fun times he and his brother had playing there, 'going nuts', her old metal detector, the goats who lived in a paddock next door, that one time grandad told him off when his brother got hurt... in short, nothing about the fact that she was a person aside from being 'his grandma', and very little about her at all. He started to finish up with a teary 'Dementia...stole MY GRANDMA.. from ME' (when he had visited her once in the seven years she had been in the aged care facility, and perhaps once or twice in the few years proceeding that, once he was no longer dragged up there by his dad). It made me feel sick, that he couldn't respect her memory enough to let her own funeral be about someone other than himself.

If someone who is a cannabis card holder for legitimate reasons has to take a urine test for a job application, does that mean the company has to overlook his positive results for marijuana? Technically, wouldn't it be descrimination if they didn't hire him because of it?

If you were an employer, what would you do? Would you care?

How is your day going?

What good things have happened to you so far today?
What bad things?

good: realized I can reheat crescent rolls in the toaster, and they turn out phenomenal. Also I went to the dentist to get a small chip in my front tooth fixed and she did an awesome job and didn't charge me for any of it, including the xrays.

bad: i realized how badly I need a vacation when I went to wash my face, looked down at the "soap" I put in my hand to do so, and realized it was toothpaste.

Reptile place in Niagara?

Does anyone else remember a reptile zoo in Niagara Falls (Canada side)? I can recall going there when I was little and I can remember a big fish tank, iguanas, etc. I've spent some part of my morning looking through photo albums but knock on wood, oddly haven't found any pictures we took there.

1. What kind of mistakes do you make with regard to different bathroom products? (e.g. putting soap on toothbrush, putting q-tip in nose, etc.)

2. What kind of things make you feel really guilty but not guilty enough to stop doing them?

1. I tried to use shaving cream as shampoo the other day.

2. Eating chocolate. Reading LJ and when I should be writing my essay. Printing out way too many pages of things. Leaving my computer on all the time when I should be saving energy. Stalking people on facebook.

1. Is it necessary to go to the doctor for a broken toe (or a "might be" broken toe)? I know they can't really do anything for it. I think I broke mine this morning (stubbed it in a door frame). It hurts and has nasty bruising, but it's not like when I broke another toe a couple years ago (then again, that was a clean break through the whole bone). It hurts if I walk on it a lot, but if I've been sitting for a while, I can walk okay for a little bit. But geez, the bruising is sickening.

2. This is for teachers (or anyone really, I guess): Have you ever quit a job without having another one lined up? I'm in a position where I'm so unhappy with my current school that I don't want to sign a contract for next year (love the students, but everything else is getting to me), but I feel I may have to by next week. I've applied like crazy to a bunch of districts around here (I'm certified and have two years experience so far even though I started applying back in early April). I feel I'm very qualified for the positions I've applied for, but I have had no luck whatsoever, even with job fairs. How does this typically work? Do you typically not get a job until mid-summer? I'm in Texas if that matters. I will be paid through the end of August, but if I don't have a job by then, I'm screwed. I'm single, so I don't have a spouse's income to fall back on.

Now for non-TL;DR questions:
3. Good idea or bad idea: going on a cruise alone? Is it even possible to do? Do you have to pay more?

4. If you're planning on seeing the next Harry Potter movie, are you nervous about how it's going to turn out? Do you think it will be good?

5. What is your favorite kind of apple? I love Golden Delicious and Fuji apples.

6. Do you have a cat? Care to post a picture? Collapse )

For those of you who are on speaking terms with your parents:

How often do you talk to them?

I talk to mine once a week, but would prefer talking to them every fortnight. I don't really like talking on the phone and there's a large time difference.

My parents were nagging me this afternoon to call them more often. Apparantly their friends' children call their parents once a day.

I feel once a day is unreasonable, especially considering that they like to talk for at least an hour and there's the time difference which makes finding a good time to call difficult. I have a life of my own!

I'd like to know if I'm being unreasonable myself though.

Should I stay or should I go?

Should I stay home and go to the only school day I've been excited about the entire year (we get our yearbooks, my friend is doing a big 80's decade project thing, we're having a "cast party" in one of my classes because we just put a play on today, and we'll have a sub in physics, my worst class)?

Or should I go camping with my family?

I want to do both, but I can't decide. Oh, and it wouldn't really be staying "home". Apparently they don't trust me. I'd be staying at my mom's friends house the whole weekend.

Okay, this question is gonna seem really lame and high school, but here goes. So there's this girl in my class who I've been on alright terms with for like, the past four years (though we're not close) but she's suddenly taken to being really rude and sarcastic to me for no apparent reason.

She'll make really smartass remarks to anything I say, even if what I'm saying isn't particularly rude or whatever. I even asked a friend of hers who told me that she was just trying to 'out-sarcasm' me, whatever the hell that means. And it's really annoying because the stuff she says isn't funny in the least and sometimes, barely makes sense at all. So a few weeks back, I tried talking to her nicely to make her stop and she was okay about it, only she never stopped.

And I pretty much snapped at her today and told her that what she was doing wasn't clever, or witty and that she was trying way too hard to prove something and she (predictably), replied with this smartass remark that I was too pissed off to hear.

So the question is, TQC, if she insists on going on with this, how can I get her to stop?

Also, sorry for being so longwinded. :|

I hate the sunshine:(

I think its really great when the weather starts to get nice.  Here in Portland, Oregon its been mid 70's to 80's the last couple of days. I like it in some respects because I can get outdoors and do stuff since I've been cooped up since October.

However, I get REALLY bad migranes when its sunny out.  Are any of you really sensitive to the sun?  What do you do to relieve the pain? Suggestions?  Ibuprofen obvious answer, but I 'd like some alternatives.

Suppose you've been at your job a year, you really enjoy it and you're good at it. It took almost 9 months before you really felt confident about what you're doing.

If another job in a different dept came along, with 20% higher pay and a better title, but you weren't sure you'd like it, would you take the job?
The Dude Abides


Inspired by this episode of the Simpsons I just watched.

Here's the scenario: You have a young kid (or kids), you and your significant other go out for a three-day weekend getaway so you hire a respectable babysitter so you can do the romance thing. You have a great weekend. After you pay the babysitter and she leaves, you ask the kids how their weekend was and they tell you that the babysitter took them to some lake near where you live and baptized them. What would you do?

Is anyone else watching the Bob Barker 50 Years on TV special and getting a little sad about his retirement?

I'm such a sap...I got a little sad when he was talking about his wife and his retirement, and the big fur controversy from the pagents he used to host.

Mod Comment: Spoilers ain't cool

We've got a lot of TV shows wrapping up their seasons now, and there is bound to be a lot of discussion about big developments and plot twists. Put any spoilers under an LJ-cut or the post will be deleted and you will be warned. Repeat offenders will be banned. Please respect people's enjoyment of these shows and the differences in time zones.

Which season finales are you most looking forward to?

Do you seek out spoilers, or do you prefer to be unspoiled?

(Me: "Heroes", also "House". I'm not expecting much from Veronica Mars, sadly.)

Oh...and this isn't for me... its for my friend. Who apparently LIKES creamed corn.

Help me out TQC, I don't know what to do.

My neighbors have had their dog out for days. She's been barking constantly. Today while I was making dinner I noticed that she had somehow slipped outside of the fence and got her big heavy chain caught on the gate. She had no food or water, and her tongue was so dry that it cracked and started bleeding. If I stand in my attic, I can hear her panting all the way up there. She has a few feet of chain and she's walking around on their driveway and the side of our house. I brought out a bowl of water and some food for her, and I tried getting in contact with her owners several times but nobody is home and the number on her tags isn't working. This isn't the first time this has happened, and I can't stand seeing the poor dog treated this way all the time.

Who can I call TQC? I'm in the New York/Long Island area if it helps.

TQC! I am a fat person who is going to the beach tomorrow to hopefully get a "life-tan". We are taking picnic lunches, so what type of sammiches should we pack? While we are gone, I am going to leave my computer on, so can someone suggest a screensaver for me to use?

Thanks in advance!


Where are the whales?!

When I was little I remember that the Baltimore Aquarium had a pair of baby beluga whales. Then they did a huge remodeling when I was about 10 (I'm 21 now), and they were gone.

Where did they go? To another aquarium? SeaWorld? Did they get a pink dye-job and end up on a Lisa Frank Trapperkeeper?

So, TQC, what would be a good plot for a book? (Silly answers are, as always, welcome)


Do you know of any actresses that come to mind with this description?

I want a young woman (20-25, or looks it) who isn't stick thin, so, normal figure, (ie, actually *gasp* has no ribs showing, and has breasts, a bit plump is fine.) with dark brown hair, (i realise that this can be dyed, but for now I don't want any extra imaginings) I don't care what colour eyes. I don't want her to be hugely gorgeous. I want her to be 'normally' pretty/girl next door kind of look. You know how most hollywood stars are like, hugely gorgeous even if they're 'plainer' than most other hollywood ones? Please avoid that if possible. She'd have to be able to pull off 1940s clothes and hair. And be able to be both rather shy, and a lot more feistyness/action later on. And expressive. Oh. And can pull off being in her late teens for part of it.
