Me--State Fair

this is a fun question!

Okay TQC...I just started a program and I don't have to do anything for FIVE HOURS.

What should I listen to? We have a HUGE library here:




So I'd wager that most of what you'd suggest might be in the library. You can also check out my Last.FM page to see what I might like.

Dear TQC -

I am on my period, but I am horny as all fuck. Should I go draw a bath, get in it and clean myself up, and wank in there so as not to get all messy?

Y/N.

((Can you tell I am bored?))

ETA: Actually, I have a good question. Do any of you ever get odd pulses in your arms or legs or fingers? Like, I've been sitting here for about an hour and right by my kneecap, I keep getting this really weird pulsing in my vein. The skin is lifting and such, and it's uneven. I feel fine, but I get it all the time. I'm about 200 pounds at 5'6", maybe slighter more or less on weight and height, but I'm afraid I'm going to have a heart attack. I've lost almost 70 pounds since last July, but still.

So, does anyone else get that weird thing going on? Sometimes I wonder if it's having the pressure of a laptop on my lap for long enough time.

what do you do when you feel completely and utterly without hope and everything is falling apart?  
is there anything specifically you do that helps you feel a bit revitalized?  
where do you find hope in life?

(no subject)

1) Do you use food as dealing with issues (subconciously, conciously.. over/undereating?)
2) Do you love animals? Love your pets like part of the family?
3)When you go food shopping do you have a list? Or get whatever you fancy?
4)What do you usually drink?
5)Do you give blood?
6)If if came to your attention that a stranger somewhere was in need of a kidney/bone marrow transplant and you were a match, would you offer yourself up? Would the age of the person make a difference?


1)Yes, usually the first one, but I am pretty stressed at the moment. I don't know if i'm overeating or eating normally? I'm hungry ALL the time at the moment though...grr
2)Not really. I have a cat, I think she's rather sweet but I wouldn't miss her if she wasn't around. I doubt i'll have any animals when I have my own house. I think they're a bit of a waste of money.
3)I should make lists, I don't. I always forget what I need.. and buy extra things I don't end up eating.. if I go on a full stomach I'm so uninterested I end up buying next to nothing.
4)Blackcurrant squash.
5)No, i'm scared of needles. I wish i could though.
6)They're major surgery, so there are definitely risks. I think if there was no chance they'd find another person, or if theis was their last chance then yes I would, regardless of age.

1. Do you like challah? How do you usually eat it?
I usually have it plain. I made stuffed French toast out of it tonight and it was delicious.

2. What is the strangest thing you ever copied or scanned? Pictures please!
I scanned my cat a while ago.

3. What are your favorite meatless things that can be cooked on a grill?
Grilled cheese.

Make or break it

1) If you were in the early dating stages (or whenever it would come up) what would be a total relationship dealbreaker for you? I mean things that aren't the obvious dealbreakers at day one like bad hygiene, but bigger things like wanting kids or not.

2) Something that might help make a relationship that otherwise you might not stick around for? Money is probably a big one but anything else?

A complete stranger asks you questions about your genitalia. Would you feel offended? What would you say or do? Would you just ignore them?

Complete strangers have asked me questions about my genitalia before and it always annoys me beyond hell. I sometimes tell them that it's none of their business or I'll give them a weird look and walk away.

Converting TomeRaider E-books?

This is a shot in the dark, but I figured someone might be able to help...

Does anyone have any idea how to convert a TomeRaider e-book file into any other format? Or, failing that, does anyone know if it's possible to use the TomeRaider e-book reader in Linux under Wine? I've tried to solve this problem for a few weeks, and I haven't found a solution yet.

I have two options for getting to/from my new job, TQC. My shifts end around 1/2 am. Here are my options:

1. Drive to my school and take the subway downtown to my job, and the nightowl bus back for a grand total of $2.60. Only problem is, the area around my school is somewhat sketchy, and even moreso after dark.

2. Drive to my workplace, and pay $10 to park. If I have 4 shifts a week, this is a huge amount of money for me to be spending.

What should I do?

If your dog has consumed roughly half a bar of chocolate, what happened? Was he/she okay?

Why do I ask? Last night my boyfriend's mother gave me birthday presents, and one included a bar of chocolate. I put it down (after enjoying a bit of delicious gourmet goodness) with my stuff as friends for the party were arriving, and take my stuff when it's time to go home. This morning I want some chocolate, but all I have is the foil wrapper. So now I'm thinking "what if the dog ate my chocolate?!"

I know this dog has a history of consuming odd things and being fine, and that she did indeed once eat chocolate and got very bouncy from it, but this was half a bar! My boyfriend's out for the morning but I'll call him once he returns, I hope she's okay :(.

Cycling

I want to buy a bike, (this is my first one since my childhood) but I'm having a hard time deciding since there are different types. Mountain, road, freestyle, bmx, and so on.

So, which one do you think is the best?

Does it feel different if you ride a mountain bike on roads than a road bike? (I'm leaning towards a mountain bike since I probably would bike mostly on roads, but I don't want to be hampered by limitations set by the bike if I wanted to go off-road.)

Because this fits in perfectly with one particular view of dinosaurs and their role in Eden

1. How many dinosaurs do you think Noah had on his ark?
2. How much larger would the ark now have to be, to hold all those dinosaurs and 40 days worth of food?
3. How does an old man with divine orders corral and catch the wily middle eastern T-Rex, assuming that in Noah's day, they were abundant in number?

Would you let an almost-seven-year-old that's wanting dance lessons watch Chicago?

I thought it might be inspirational for my daughter, seeing as she's wanting to take dance (especially ballet, which will bore me to tears, but if that's what she wants...), but the story material is quite... adult. Still, I'd rather her watch "Cell Block Tango" than most of the pop music geared towards girls her age nowadays. (It's either lacking of talent or clothes. Sometimes both.)

Does anyone remember a story that had two outcomes. It was about a boy who rode his bicycle really fast home to tell his mom that he got a scholarship to a really good school. In one ending, he ran over a chicken, his mom got really pissed at him, so he ran away, joined the navy, and never spoke to his mother ever again. In the other, he avoided the chicken and accidentally killed himself and his mom was all like "Why didn't he just run over the chicken!? His life is way more valuable than this stupid chicken!"

Does this sound familiar to anyone?

I'm going over to the guy I'm dating's house today for his family's Memorial Day BBQ. I can't bring over alcohol and they're making all the main dishes already. However I thought it'd be rude to show up empty handed. What should I make to bring them?

Smores Ice Cream Cake [This includes -graham crackers, sugar, cinnamon, melted butter, chocolate chips, marshemallows, chocolate sauce, nutella, ice cream, and marshmallow cream] or Pumpkin Cinnamon Muffins with Chocolate Chips [Self-explanatory. It's actually very delicious]?

The former sounds more tasty, but I'm afraid I'll give them diabetes with how much of a sugar overload it is haha. There will be adults, children, and people my age [late teens-early twenties].

1. Did something interesting happen to you today?

Yes. I met a classmate I hadn't seen since graduation nearly 5 years ago. She flirted with me and asked me out on a date. I of course said yes.

Yes. It was less difficult than I thought it would be.

3. Have you ever had a date from hell? If so, do tell.

Yep. A few years back I was set up on a date with a girl who smelled like rotten eggs. On our date she couldn't stop talking about her dad. The way she talked about him was kinda creepy. Turns out my friend set me up on a date with this girl as a joke.

who are we?

Ok, so the books I read this week (that I picked randomly off the shelves at my local library) have a similar theme, 29 year olds trying to figure out who they are, looking back at how they got there. It's really quite odd, actually. There are a lot of other parallel themes between the two.

Anyway! They have me thinking about lots of things.

Plasma donation

Every time I try to donate blood I get turned away because my hemocrit levels are very slightly too low. I donated blood once almost three years ago but since then have been turned down twice, and was turned down once before then.

To donate plasma do I have to meet the same hemocrit levels as if I were donating blood? I know the plasma donation process is a lot different from donating blood so I'm just wondering, because I wouldn't even waste my time getting a screening if I knew I would be turned away.

I've looked on plasma donation FAQs but none have said anything about being qualified to donate blood vs. plasma.

A belated answer

I totally don't remember who posted the question, but someone was looking for a corset with sleeves for some sort of costume, and I found a good one and wanted to post. Delete if necessary.

Corset o' Sexy. This bid ends in about an hour but there are probably others posted for later, or in difference sizes. The one I linked to is a plus size, but she carries as small as 18" waists, and as large as 50" sometimes.

*edit*
Ok, fine, I'll add a question that's related then. What do you guys think of this corset? I'm thinking about getting it to wear clubbing but am worried that it might separate the boobs too much, if you look at the cups. Any thoughts?

what was the one...

it was a movie that came out earlier this year, i believe, and not a "big" movie, but more of an independent. it was about beethoven, towards the later years of his life, and he gets an assistant. the assistant turns out to be a woman. she ends up helping him write some of his most famous works. i remember the end of the trailer and she's helping him conduct the orchestra by hiding in the very back and basically showing him the hand gestures he should be using, since, of course, he can't HEAR what's being played.

2. Have you ever had a funny or interesting encounter with a celebrity? If yes, will you elaborate?

3. How many different kinds of drugs have you done? What are they? Was it a one-time thing or is it regular or semi-regular use?


And, for the TCQers who wear high heels all day, every day (or nearly):

4. How do you do it? Do your feet become more used to it as the time goes on?
5. Do you use any Dr. Scholl's (or similar) inserts?
6. Are wedge heels more comfortable than regular heels?

ragamuffins and hunger

1. How often do you use the word "ragamuffin"?

2. When I wake up at noon I don't get hungry until around 3:30 PM. When I wake up at 8:00 AM I am hungry immediately, and I'm not average hungry, I'm extra hungry. I usually don't eat anything past 8:30-ish PM no matter how late I stay up. The time I go to bed seems to have no impact on my level of hungriness, just the time I wake up.

Why is this? Does this happen to you? Is there some obvious explanation I'm missing?

Making new friends

I just relocated to Myrtle Beach, SC. I am from CT and went to school in PA.

Tomorrow at like noon, I will be here a week. I know no one but my ex and well...id rather not see him.

I have been to the beach with my roomie a couple times this week which was fun. We hung out with her new interest but that is all that has happened. She is barely home and havent been invited to meet any of her friends which is cool.

How do I make friends here?

I am in a complex but they are all busy with their own lives and dont have any opportunities open for adding on. Plus it isnt filled completely since school starts in August (i graduated but I am basically living in student housing).

I dont have a job, so I cant afford much.

So where do I go to meet people that wont break the bank? My social life so far is very alone and while I love my alone time..it would be nice to know i have friends whod hang if i wanted to.
