HELP HELP!

This is driving me nuts. For the life of me I can't remember who sings a song that my friend and I were listening to a while ago.
It's a female singer and in part of the song she sings about doing the dishes and either eating or drinking the dish soap water.
Does anyone have any idea what song I'm talking about?

thanks!


got it. thanks.

Lactose Intolerant

Recently I've noticed that whenever I eat dairy products, I get really nauseous an hour or so later. But it doesn't happen when I have just a little bit (like a piece of cheese or something), but does with a bowl of ice cream or a glass of milk. I was also tested several years back for it but I wasn't even close being lactose intolerant.

Is it possible to get it as you get older (I'm already in my 20s)? Is it possible to only be intolerant to a certain amount? Is simply getting nauseous enough to consider it Lactose Intolerant? Could it be a milk allergy? Anyone else here experience something similar?

story time: my boyfriend had a cavity on a tooth toward the back of his mouth. he got the tooth with the cavity pulled about a month ago. after getting the tooth pulled, he suffered from the normal pain where the tooth had been as well as pain in his tongue. this pain went away several days after the tooth was pulled. about a week after that, he came to visit me (we live 2 hours apart). when he came to visit, we made out. later that day after he had returned home, the pain in his tongue came back. it has been back for the past 2 weeks. he says it feels like someone is sticking a pin in it, but there is nothing visibly wrong with it. 

does anybody have any idea what this could be?

inspired by an earlier post:

If you're one of the seemingly few who do not admire or like Tiger Woods, why not?

Does anything about Tiger annoy you?

Who do you most admire in sports (other than or in addition to Tiger Woods)?

In case you're wondering what I have against TW, I don't really - he's pretty amazing and has accomplished A LOT, esp. for the game of golf.  It's just that he gets so much press, I want to hear about who else people admire.


Edit: I used too narrow a word choice with 'admire' - I'm interested in knowing what sports figures people like, enjoy, look forward to watching, etc...

I want Mozilla darnit...

So I'm at work, and I just had to restart the computer for various reasons and I had about fifteen to twenty random tabs open. I can't remember what they were, and they were things I wanted to bookmark and read later when I had a chance.

But I'm using Internet Explorer 7(complete with vaguely useless Google Toolbar) instead of the browsers I'm used to. If this was Firefox, I'd have my tabs back as soon as I reopened the browser. But it's not, so I want to go in to the browser history and see what webpages I've viewed today.

Am I crazy? Didn't this used to be possible? How do I make this happen? I've checked the help, and can't find it. Okay, I FINALLY found the command, buried somewhere in a toolbar that wasn't enabled.

Do you find the help files usually useless?

And for the benefit of randomness:

How do you like your showers, TQC?

Hot, cold, right in between?

With the water so light it's just barely tickling you, or so hard it could be reported for abuse?

Short and sweet, or long and drawn-out?

Do you sing in the shower, act out scenes from movies, think about what you can have for dinner that night, anything else interesting, or just stand there like a boring old statue while you wash your ass? Would your answer for this change if you were alone in the house and no one could hear you?

Spurred by yet another discussion on ONTD:

Why is it that people consider obesity to be the most disgusting, unexcusable thing in the world, but turn their heads when it comes to other vices?

Think about it:

An obese person has a vice: eating too much food. This vice is detrimental to their health.

However...

A chain smoker could smoke two packs a day, effectively ruining his lungs. His vice is equally detrimental to is health, and society doesn't label it as disgusting, etc.
The same for alcoholics.


So? What is it about obesity that makes it so much more disgusting than these other health-compromising things?

Versus

9:22 PM 5/26/07 · A lot of people weren't all that ond of Alien versus Predator, not that I'm one of them, as it didn't really do it for them. Not too unexpected really when you mix two fandoms and what works in the comics doesn't always work on the big screen. Although, this is hardly the first time this sort of thing has gone down.

I'm not just talking Freddy versus Jason either. Off the top of my head I can think of about 9 different versus movies and they all weren't what you'd call great but at least they entertaining. Saw the very 1st one when I wasn't even 10 years old: Billy the Kid versus Dracula...

...trust me, AvP was a masterful triumph by comparison! I've yet to work up the nerve to rent Zombies versus Vampires but my expectations are low.

1. Of the ones you've seen, what was your favorite versus movie?

2. What was your least favorite?

3. If you had to choose from two fandoms to fight it out...which ones would you pick from?

My Spanish skills aren't what they used to be. There's one thing in particular that confuses me. I don't know when to use the letter e or the letter a in certain words. Lemme explain.

If you're telling several people to look at something, do you say "miren" or "miran." etc. etc. So basically what I'm asking is what is the rule for using these e's and a's?

Stupid hair?

I have naturally curly hair (it's straightend in the icon, ignore that, heh).

However half the time when I wash it, it when it's dry it's all flat and limp and...not frizzy, but kind of poofy, and there's no definition.

And then sometimes I wash it and it comes out great.

I wash it the exact same way with the exact same stuff and finish it the exact same way every time. I use Ouidad stuff, www.ouidad.com. And I only wash it 2-3 times a week. And it's not the weather. :)

So...what's up with my hair being all flat and gross half the time?

We do have pretty low water pressure, so, is it just not getting rinsed good sometimes? Wtf?

So I'm planning on adopting a second cat soon and want to go ahead and get stuff for it. Obviously, already having a cat, I have some stuff for her.

I'm planning on getting another litter box, travel crate, and more food bowls so each cat will have their separate stuff. I'll buy food, a collar with ID, and litter later once I finalize an adoption since I don't know yet what age the new cat will be (looking at getting an older cat instead of a kitten).

That said, is there anything else I should get that I'm not thinking of?

Any tips for introducing new cats? I'm going to keep them in separate rooms for a couple of days so they'll get used to each other's scents before introducing them face to face. I've been told to let them establish their heirarchy (i.e. if they fight, let them finish it out) and obviously give my current cat extra attention when I bring in the new one.

i am going to court next week for a traffic ticket. the idea is for me to try and get probation before judgement. and since my last ticket was 6 years ago, i think i can do that. i figure i should plead guilty, and show them that i know i made a mistake and it won't happen again. however, i don't know what to expect in court. i know first they ask you "how do you plead?". if i say "guilty" do they then allow me to explain myself and ask for probation before judgement? or is it just up to the judge to give me whatever he/she deems a fit punishment? also, am i correct that if i got pulled over and got just a (verbal) warning in the past, that it doesn't show up on my record?

EDIT: i know i plan to plead guilty. it's a long story with technicalities, but i realize that if the cop says i'm guilty, they'll believe him over me. i just wanted to know from someone who's been through this before if i'll get to actually ask for pbj or if after i say "guilty" is it basically case closed, and completely to the judge?

OK, TCQ. Here's the deal. I have a not-so-mild addiction to The Sims 2. However, my computer is crap so I couldn't play it for a few months. So recently I finally ponied up and bought a new graphics card (which I really needed anyway), and some RAM, totaling about 120 in upgrades. So, happy with my purchases I went to install the game.

It does not work. I am very sad.

The body shop file won't transfer over. I've tried cleaning the disk and Googling the problem, but it all sounds very complicated on the forums. It requires smarts.

I am not smart, TCQ.

Does anyone have any advice for me that is relatively simple and doesn't involve shelling out another fifty? (And no, I don't have a friend to loan the game from).

My roommate told me that if a light-haired person dyed their hair dark brown or black, their hair will grow out darker than it was before dying it, and may never return to the original color. I am a bit skeptical. Then I asked her if the light-haired person dyed it their original color or some other light shade, if their hair would grow out to be the original color again, and she said she didn't know.

She knows a lot more about beauty secrets, make up, skincare and hair dying than I do, so generally I trust her, but I don't see how this can be back ed up with science. I think if anything, people's perception of the original haircolor changed, or something.

Is any of this true? Pictures of before and afters? What's the scientific basis for this hair phenomenon?

POS rental cars + me

Three weeks ago, I was sideswiped at 60 mph by a douchebag too busy to use his rearview mirrors before changing lanes.

My car (which is 5 months old and has been hit TWO TIMES already) has been in the body shop since the accident.

I was told that it would take about two weeks to fix the car (major damage, but not like, crumpled car or anything). I said, "Oh good, because I desparately need the car by June 13 (today), or at the latest June 14 (tomorrow), because I'm leaving town for four days on the 14th and would like to have my car for that 200 mile trip." I made this clear. Can't take my husband's car, because it's a million years old and gets bad gas mileage and we dont like to take it on long trips.

to which they responded, "Oh, that's totally not a problem." which makes me happy because i'm currently driving the world's most hoopdie POS rental honda accord - white, dented all over, with unpainted black plastic doors and rearview mirrors, smells like old people, has Florida tags, i hate this car. OH and the gas mileage SUCKS compared to my little 2 door civic coupe.

Yesterday my husband calls them and they say "whoops! we're just getting around to putting the bumper on this morning. So we'll be sure to paint it today so it can dry and you can have it back Thursday at the latest."

Today  we call to follow up and hear: "WHOOPS WE JUST NOW PRIMERED IT. IT WILL NOT BE DONE UNTIL MONDAY."

So my question to you, after all of this tl;dr, is this: should I bother pitching a fit? I know I can't get my car back by tomorrow, but it's the PRINCIPAL of it. they've been dicking us around (the insurance company, the rental car company, and the body shop) since day one. the accident = not my fault.

Bonus points: do you have any humorous suggestions of what you would do designed entirely to cheer me up?

Job prospects

How do you get your foot in the door in the childcare field? All I've really done is the normal string of babysitting gigs and that was in high school (I'm 26 now).

Besides that, can anyone think of a normal, average job that wouldn't suck and might actually be enjoyable?

Okay, so, you know those memories you have from being a kid that you aren't sure if they're real or not? Yeah, well, this is one of them. I seem to remember when I was about 6 or 7, going into a music store with my parents and there was a movie on. I was watching it, but it scared me, the only thing I remember was two or three HUGE grass hoppers sitting in a tree and for some reason, I think the people had turned into them. Does anyone know if I just have a wonky memory or if this really was a movie?

And another question! Has anyone seen those b movie Christian flicks about the rapture from the 1970s? I was forced to watch them when I was little and it actually caused alot of issues with me as a little kid, but now, I want to see them again because I'm sure they're terrible! I'm just wondering if anyone knows about them. ;P

great happening illimitably earth)

I'm trying to remember a song, that was sort of bluegrassy. I believe the band was called the Ooh la la's or the Oh la la's, or that was the title or something. The gist of the story was that the father had cheated and the mother murdered him. I believe the chorus had something about a roof, and the only line I can remember is 'what should be happening in spring', I believe.

Now that I've given you the vaguest information possible, does anyone know what on Earth I'm talking about?

theres one thing that worries me, and its that im extremely shy and quiet. because im so quiet all the time, people think im uninterested or mean. and also, people tend to walk over me not because i dont stand up for myself, because i'm not loud about it. i really want to change this and start anew at uni.

im hoping to use this summer to rejuvenate (so to speak) myself. any suggestions?

1. Earlier today somewhere I saw a macro somewhere with the Burger King guy in a forest that made me laugh really hard and I can't find it. Anyone know what I'm talking about and could you post it for me?

2. Are you watching So You Think You Can Dance? What do you think so far?

based on the nepal post..

Husband and I want to start thinking about where to go for our second anniversary - which isn't until NEXT September. (this year we're doing Cayman Islands, cause we got a deal; next year we'll be a bit better financially).

His parents suggested London. Thoughts?: We like the beach and carribean but we've never been out of the country except to like 2039582039 carribean islands. Would love to, you know, GO somewhere.

Ideas? Nothing TOO expensive like I can't go to australia or anything, but we heard London was fun and you can do it for not too horribly expensive.

Some of you may have heard about the rednecks that lived with my mother for eight months. She spent tons of money on the children (ages 3 to 14, four of them) and, in my opinion, they didn't deserve a dime of it.

They moved out May 12th. They left the kids' bikes here, among other various things that my mother is refusing to take responsibility for and return it to them. Perfectly understandable since they were so obnoxious and the children destructive, with parents who didn't consistently discipline them.

Anyway. We're really only "worried" about the 4-5 bicycles they left, which are sitting in our front yard. They're moving to Georgia soon, and I told mom the first day Sara (the mother) doesn't show up at the plant (news paper distributing plant), the bikes are getting pawned. I have more stuff I have to take to the dump, which will probably be the remainder of whatever isn't destroyed enough to go to St. Vincent de Paul or the Hospice.

Since it's been over thirty days that they've been gone, do we have the right to do what we wish with their things, or have I been lead to falsely believe this?

Thanks for any input. I live in Florida, if that even makes a difference. There was no written contract, except that they *had* to be gone before I returned home, and they were, since we don't have the room for them and me.

Bookends?

If you were a nice, pretty set of decorative bookends, where would I buy you? The only bookends we can find are the plain, bent metal ones, and we don't want those. We want something that will look nice in our living room. Where did you get YOUR pretty bookends? :)

I've tried Target, and they don't have bookends at all. Maybe Pier 1 or something?

To the ladies of TQC:
How hard is it going to be to walk in 4inch stilettos in grass for my graduation tomorrow?
I can walk in them for dayyyyyys on end, but, I've never walked on anything other than solid ground.

Question for TQC Grammar Nazis

I've been noticing more plural treatment of singular nouns such as "The band have arrived in the studio". OK, I get "the band" is made up of multiple members, but the band is one unit. Should I start saying things such as "The loaf of bread have become moldy, so I threw them away" because the loaf is pre-sliced?

Miniatures

Are you a dollhouse miniaturist? (if so, how old are you, male or female, and are you a member of a club? And what are your favourite things to do? Are you a maker, collector and/or swapper?) Do you know any dollhouse miniaturists? Do you know what dollhouse miniatures is? If you do, what do you think of it?

Do you have creative hobbies? If so, what?

Purely Hypothetical.

Let's say there's this man named John Smith. He doesn't trust keeping his money in a bank account, so he stores all of his extra money in this metal tackle-box type container, which he keeps buried by the base of a tree on a random piece of property. For the sake of this question, we'll say there aren't any houses for miles around, so nobody really knows who owns the property on which John hides his cash.

The box has a lock on it, and on the lid there is this little plaque-type thing stating who the box and its contents belong to, with John's address.

One day John goes to put some money in his box only to find that a developer has bought that land and has dug up the tree and surrounding area to start the construction of new homes. The developer's workers found John's box.

What do you think should happen to John's box and his money? Does it technically belong to the developer seeing as he purchased the land it was buried in? Or is the developer legally/morally obligated to give John his box+money, as it clearly states who the box+money belongs to?

Underoos

Some months ago, two friends of mine (one girl, one guy) and I were having a conversation as I put together an outfit before I went to take a shower. I pulled out a bra and panties that were fairly matching (not a set) to which my girl friend questioned why I needed to match so much. It's really just because I have a slight case of OCD. My guy friend then said, "Guys don't really like when girls have matching underwear anyway."

Since then, I've been wondering if this is actually the case. So, guys and girls, do you prefer matching or mismatched undergarments on the ladies/yourself?
