tortillas & ugly pictures plz.

1. What are your favorite things to make with tortillas?
Quesadillas, veggie tacos, and these cinnamon sugar things.

2. What is the ugliest clothing item or accessory you own? Pictures please! I think there needs to be a Would You Wear It? poll featuring actual TQC-ers stuff. Do you agree? Obviously you should.

3. As far as I can tell this show is all ages. It doesn't seem to say differently anywhere but I have a feeling it isn't. Does it say 21+ somewhere and I am just missing it?

Weird question: Are there any candy stores in NYC/Manhattan that sell individual flavored Skittles? You know, with the big tubes, and you can fill a bag with however much you want of that type of candy. They have something similar with individually colored M&Ms, so I don't see why there wouldn't be the same for Skittles.

What is your current favorite icon?

What is it about (if you think people might not get it)?

Did you make it yourself?

If not, who made it?

If you have a paid account, did you buy it just for the extra icon space or for another reason?

This icon is my current favorite and I made it myself. It's a quote from 1776.

Tonight, my husband's car broke down. He said that the engine made some terrible grinding noise and all the service lights came on, and then it died. His brother believes the timing belt snapped. (The car is a 2001 Ford Escort ZX2, if anyone's interested)

1. What do you think happened to his car, TQC?
2. Has anyone had a timing belt snap? How much did it cost to get replaced?

3. What's the most expensive mechanic bill you've had? What was it for?

Not especially. I'm more materialistic than them.

Well I am upset by this! I don't want to make a big deal out of it, and he didn't say it in a nasty way, he was just honestly telling me what he thought.. but still, I wish he could see him like I do.

Boredom and random thinking;

Do you find that you usually think you might have a disease/cancer when you hear about it's symptoms?

I do, and it's really annoying because I'll spend a good week thinking something's wrong with me.

If you were to be diagnosed with a disease/cancer, which one do you think it'd be? Can be for any reason.

I think it'd have to be lupus because I'm always exhausted and I get hives/rashes randomly from heat/pressure on my skin. It seems like a mild disease as well.

Mmmm coffee and tea!

1) How do you normally drink your coffee?

I drink mine black because I'm hardcore! Sometimes I'll put a little cream or milk in it if it's bad coffee, but never any sugar.

2a) How do you drink your iced tea?

Always without sugar or anything else. I hate tea that is too sweet. Obviously I do not belong in the south. Sun tea is THE BEST.

2b) How do you drink your hot tea?

Sometimes I'll add a little honey if I'm feeling crazy but usually I drink it black, no matter the type of tea I'm drinking. Earl gray black and hot = best (and this was before I was a Star Trek fan ... Captain Picard and I are MEANT TO BE I SWEAR!).

This is really only for the province of Ontario that I'm asking, really, but a general idea of things could work too.

I don't drive (yet), and am well over the age of 16 that you're allowed to go try to get your driver's licence. Because I'm an adult, would they cut off a few months of having a G1 (lowest level) licence, or would I still need to wait forever and a day to get a full licence?

I'm fairly certain they put more limitations on kids cuz they don't seem to have the best judgement on the road, but I could be way off base here.


I've roamed websites about this thing, but they always keep returning to the 16-year-old stuff. Bleh.

opinion question

so there's this guy i used to like [ who also liked me]
and for some reason i just kinda.. stopped liking him
me seeing him as a good friend went on for 2 months or so

and ever since then
i've gotten all nervous and giddy around him. as in. i like him again.
i've always been submissive when it come to relationships, so dominance is a big turn on for me

bug identification

I have bugs in my bathroom. They are only in the bathroom and almost entirely in the sink or on the counter close to it. I have seen them nowhere else in the house. No idea where they're coming from either as they've formed no trails and I can find no cracks or holes in the wall.

I've seen at least half a dozen at a time, but never concentrated in one spot and I've never seen them focused on anything; they just seem to wander around.

They're TINY. They have black heads and lighter colored bodies. As best I can tell, they have 6 legs and 2 antenna (and no wings). It's hard to tell because they are so small.

Any idea what they are? Tiny sugar ants?

i have killed the same kind of spider in my house 3 separate times over the past few days and i have no idea what kind it is. i dont know anything about spiders, so hopefully you guys can help me out. its about the size of a half dollar, maybe a tad smaller. skinny. the body and legs seem evenly proportionate. its darkish brown with a tan thin line going down its back.

the other day i noticed a bug bite on my arm. it never hurt or anything, my skin just got really red and dry. kind of like sunburn. there was never any kind of infection under my skin, but as of today i can see the little scab, i guess, of where i got bit. other than that, i havent noticed anything.

i dont know if they are related, but i would really like to get to the bottom of this.

1. My friend and I email each other. She's always been slightly passive-agressive and catty. The other day I got this reply after I mentioned, in passing, that I might want to have kids someday:


I [think] the same thing. But the difference in the two scenarios is that everyone pretty much figures that at some point I'm gonna pop a couple of little tykes out. You, on the other hand, I am not sure if I have ever seriously thought of you as the mother type. I didn't think you LIKED kids. so its just kinda humorous that you feel that way sometimes."

WTF? If someone said that to you would it bother you? It's not like she said I'd be a horrible mother, but it stung. I like kids and I like doing Mom-ish things. Am I over-reacting? How would you respond?

2. Is there a kitchen appliance that I could use to make smoothies AND pesto? I was thinking one of those blender on a stick things, but I dunno. Basically I'm cheap and don't want to buy 2 separate appliances if one will work.


TQC, I need your help.

Where are my headphones?  I have at least 3 pair in here, but I can't find them ANYWHERE!! Is it because I am a lazy slob who still hasn't unpacked her shit from moving 2 weeks ago?

Should I continue looking, or just go buy another pair? 

Why is it that when I finally find my MP3 player and get it running again, I can't find headphones?  How the hell am I supposed to listen to it? Stick my tongue in the headphone jack?

I am morbidly obese.  I am a cow.  I am going to attempt to ride my bike to work tomorrow.  Do you think I will die on the way?  Will I be able to get the bicycle seat out of my ass crack?

If you could have any job you wanted and not have to worry about salary (let's say everyone just gets paid a million a year) what job would you choose?

When you are not on TQC do you think of questions you could ask TQC?
@ denny's

how do you get around

speaking of the gideons post, does any know of or can find that website that explained how the bibles were all entry points to an inter-dimensional warp that you could use to cross the country via motels? i gave it a hearty 1 minute of googling and gave up.

anyway, magical transportation methods via hotel spammed publications aside

do you bike? are there bike only lanes where you live? i love biking downtown minneapolis because i get my own lane, but as soon as i venture out of downtown, i'm terrified to share the road with some of these people. (whine whine cell phones, red light runners, etc)

do you ever bike on the sidewalk? do you think drivers or pedestrians get more annoyed with bikers in their space?

and finally, ever given a shot at grabbing onto a vehicle while it's in motion back to the future style? i want to do it some time, like to a bus's wheel well or something, but i haven't worked up the nerve to try yet

How Are You v. Hello

So, today I was reading Dear Abby, and the topic of the questions was about how some people think that it's rude to greet someone with "How Are You/What's Up" etc. instead of "Hello" because they feel that the former is too intruding. Personally, I really don't care. It's kind of like a "don't sweat the small stuff" issue for me. I mean, there are a bunch more things that one can be worried about in this world. Why pick such a trivial issue like that?
I myself usually don't pay attention to what I greet people with, but if I had to guess, it's usually a "Hey! What's up?" kind of thing. If you just say "Hi", you're more likely to not get a response. I think that, when saying "How are you?" etc., people are trying to be friendly, not intruding.
What are your views on this, TCQ? Forgive me if this has been asked before.

Winamp / Last.FM

How the hell do I stop Last.FM from opening and PLAYING when I open Winamp? Why would it play when I am obviously playing something in Winamp?? Derrr. If I double click a file and Winamp opens it, a minute later Last.FM opens and plays. Makes no sense.

Has your self-diagnosis ever been right?

Were you worried you had something fatal..when it was just something else?

I thought I was having heart attacks...when it was just an inflammation in my chest. I am relieved!!!

You know when you first set up itunes and it searches your comp for music files? Is there any way to do that after you have it set up? I have songs all over the place and would like itunes to find them all. lol

I've got a family reunion on Sunday and we need a dish to pass.
What should I bring? It's outside and the weather is supposed to be high 60's to low 70's.
Anything but cheesecake, please!

How have the gas prices affected your driving? How much is it where you live?
It's $3.65 a gallon here. I do the 4-60 airconditioning deal to save gas since my car guzzles it when the AC is on. 4 windows down, 60 miles per hour... it feels like you have the AC on, except it's humid  Fuck it, I'm walking.

Apparently my height of 5'9" makes me taller than "average," but shorter than "tall," so I have a hell of a time finding pants that are the right length. I only need a medium, but medium tops tend to be too short. So...

If you had to, would you rather wear pants that are too long or too short? Tops (too short meaning they just barely hit your waist and often show a little tummy)? Which is less embarrassing?

Also, where the hell do I find clothes that fit right? Any suggestions?

Is anyone having trouble with Yahoo mail? My mother can't send me anything, aparently, most of it's bouncing (but not all, so she hasn't been accidentally blocked or anything). I'm not having any sort of difficulty with anything/anyone else, just her, and she's going a bit nuts. It's several addresses she's having issue with, all Yahoo.

I have this random urge to go to the zoo, and the boyfriend's response is basically "why would you want to do that?"
Have you been to a zoo recently? Was it enjoyable? How old are you now and was it as fun as going when you were younger?

Completely unrelated... did anyone ever paint sow/pill/rolliepolie bugs when they were little? We use to have multi colored pill bugs roaming our yard because of my artistic tendencies. I have a manager at work that use to do the exact same thing... now I am wondering if anyone else did it.

For all the nail biters out there:

When you have the piece of nail in your mouth, what to you do with it? Spit it out, swallow it, chew on it, manually take it out and throw it on the ground or in the trash? Something else?

Also .. on a scale of one to ten how sexy do you find the two middle men in Collapse )

Edit: LOL! I can't believe that not even ONE of you shares my love for the one in the black shirt! I guess I'm just used to being at his shows where all the girls adore him .. haha.

Have you ever made butter chicken but with tofu instead, so um, butter tofu? Did it turn out ok? I'm looking for something passable, it doesn't have to be fantastic.

Any other ideas on what to do with leftover butter chicken sauce that doesn't involve meat? And I do mean eat it, not rub it all over my body or something - that will be for another Friday night. (I know you guys too well ;)

I'm thoroughly sick of wearing glasses every day and plan on getting contacts. The problem? Movies make me cry really easily, be it touchingly cute or sad, and I have a feeling that I'm going to be watching a lot of movies with the people I'll be living with in the fall. So those of you with contacts, do they fall out when you cry? Or slide around and get uncomfortable? Should I just resign myself to glasses-only moviewatching?
