What do you wish more people were into/wish you could find people who were into, right now? Tv shows, movies, books, hobbies, music, activities, actions whatever.

I wish I could find more people who are into dollhouse miniatures, Lano and Woodley, The Brittas Empire, The Chronicle: News  From The Edge, Maid Marian and Her Merry Men, the Pagan series by Catherine Jinks, Jake/Mickey from Dr Who, the Obernewtyn Chronicles, the slightly dodgy movies Showbands and Showbands II, and people who were more into geeky things like boardgame nights... and I wish more people were into lamingtons so I could eat them more often.

k so, my bf has a foot fetish.
a pretty severe one.
but he's in denial.

I've been job hunting for him because I am a sweet and kind bf <3
I let him know that I sent him some more craigslist job listings and especially emphasized that some of the ads are for shoe stores.

He was distraught with this because according to him I "think" he has a foot fetish and he's humiliated just by me mentioning it at all.

Dude, the only way he can get off is if I jerk him off with my foot. I'd say that's a goddamn foot fetish.

Is there anyway I can alleviate some of his humiliation?
Do you think someone should feel humiliated and be in denial of having a foot fetish?
Do you think someone with a foot fetish would enjoy working in a shoe store?

Have you mastered the one footed foot job?

When he moves down here should I get him to start giving me pedicures or just pay for them?

Edinburg Festival

Has anyone been to this year's Edinburg festival? I went last year and it was just an incredible experience, from what I can remember which is not a lot other than being drunk most of the time and going to stand-up shows :)

drinks

1. if you are the drinking type, what do you like to drink? if not, what do you like to drink?
2. what do you NOT like to drink? will you drink it if it's all there is?
3. what fucks you up the worst?


1. fat tire, blue moon, dos equis, yuengling, corona, honey brown, almost any tequila, and bourbon.
2. scotch, gin, coors light, any beer ending with "ice," and anything flavored (as in coconut rum, vanilla vodka, etc.--with the exception of strawberry vodka), and spiced rum. i wll drink it if there is NOTHING else and i'm hankering for a drink.
3. vodka, by far. i'm not allowed to drink it anymore.

Guitars for newbies

I'm looking for a relatively cheap guitar to learn/mess around on just for fun. Not looking to go pro or anything, but I do want it to sound decent. Should a petite person go for a child sized guitar (25 inches)? Also, just by searching acoustic guitars on ebay, a LOT come up for around $30...which sounds too good to be true. What would be the cons of one of these super cheap guitars?

For those of you into sports, if your favourite player was to switch to a different team, would you switch your allegiance too? Or would you stay loyal to your favourite team? Or would your head just explode? You see people like David Beckham go from team to team/country to country, and lots of fans follow along, just because of him, but he seems to be a rarity in his ability to jump around like that.

When you go to a show/fete/fair/festival, do they have sample/show bags to purchase? I don't know if this is an Aussie thing or not (they used to be free when they were indeed sample bags - bags with samples of their products - but now are generally full of crap!).

zits and wrinkles.....

Since money has been tight for the past 4 months I no longer use Aveda on my skin. I switched back to my old standby which was Burt's Bee's only it hasn't been so pleasant. My skin is oily all the time and I am breaking out from it, in the past this stuff was great for me. I am wondering if it has to do with the fact I live in a much different climate now then I did the last time I used it on a regular basis, and I am in my mid 30's when last time I was using it I was in my mid to late 20's.
So I am wondering does anyone know of a great skin care line that is cruelty free / doesn't test on animals and at the same time won't break my pocket book?

Hey TQC.
Long time no see.

Last week I wrote out my rent check (on the 1st, of course). It takes about a week for them to go cash it and have it go through. In the meantime I used my debit card a few times. When my rent check went through, I had overdrawn roughly $5. My bank charged me a $30 overdraft fee.
Okay, fine. I made a stupid mistake, I'll pay the overdraft fee.
Except my bank went and added overdraft fees to all the transactions I made in between the time I wrote the check to the time it was cashed. So NOW I'm overdrafted, like, 100 some dollars.
Is this normal? Do you think I should try and get them to take the extra fees off? Or is this just what happens, and I'm stuck with it?



ALSO.
How much did your wedding cost? I'm getting married next year, and I want a pretty cheap wedding.... but I also just found out that a live band that I realllllllly really want costs $2500. Ummm that might be half of my budget.
In all fairness, they're a 16 piece live swing band with a 5 piece vocal ensemble. I'm so excited.

Has an ex of yours ever tried to make you feel like shit for breaking up with them or for whatever reason?

My ex-boyfriend contacted me last night and tried to make me feel like a horrible person for dumping him because of his racism. Apparently he thinks his racism is completely justifiable. I tried to make him understand why I don't want anything to do with him but it was like talking to a brick wall. UGH!

2] How many people have seen you completely naked?
Two of my close friends on a drunken senior Washington trip, and my exboyfriend. So that would be three people.

3] What did you dream about last night?
That my sister and my exboyfriend fell madly in love with each other. They were constantly being lovey and shit in front of me, and he bought her a Bluetooth so they could talk all the time. It was really depressing.

4] What do you feel guilty about?
My dad recently moved to Florida to live with his girlfriend, and he makes an effort to talk to me on the phone all the time, but I hate talking on the phone, so I barely pick up. I feel bad because I obviously never see him, but I really have nothing to talk about.

In the Akon song, 'I Promise' there's a part where the Jamaican singer raps about cooking fish and something else. I think he's saying okras but my boyfriend swears its something else. All the lyrics I find exclude the rap. Help, I need to know what else this guy is cooking! Well, not really but I'd like to prove the bf wrong. :]

so, I was sitting outside enjoying my 12:00 nic fix yesterday when I noted a fuzzy funny little bumble bee gathering nectar. I started to ponder the bee and if memory serves me correctly, it's bumble bees that can only sting once and then they die.

Riddle me this, if bumble bees die after they sting, then does that not make the purpose of stinging a little pointless?

Of course I have no idea if this is accurate, but I was always told they sting once and then they are kaput.

hi question club

i'm sorry because i'm sure this question comes up several times a month, but i'd really appreciate some advice. my old computer was destroyed and i have a new one, i'd like to upload my music onto the new one from my ipod. i don't have any backups or anything, just the ipod. i tried this* (using a friend's) and it deleted his stuff.

are there any reliable programs you/someone you know have used? do you know anything about SharePod or iPodSoft?


note: my iPod is the last model before video, and apparently might not be supported by the apple programs you can buy for this purpose

Rearranging A Fan Forum

So, a while back, a friend was trying to start up a fanforum for the two guys you see in my icon, Lano and Woodley.  They're Australian comedians, just to explain, because I'm sure someone will ask.
She didn't know how to do it, so since I'm a big fan and I have had forum running experience, I took over, with her permission. It  wasn't perfect, but it was a good start. I intended to rearrange later, as we grew. Well now's the time to rearrange, and I have no idea how to do it.

Can you help me? Have any ideas?

Here's the forum.

Edit: I've moved things around, but I'd still like opinions!

2. How much does it typically cost to mail something heavy like a textbook?

3. Do temp agencies that help you find work cost money? And if they do, is it a one time fee or do they keep taking a percentage out of your paychecks? My friend said they do, but I can't find anything that says they do online.

4. How did you find your current job?

(foster means it would only be with you a few weeks to a few months tops)

if they got mad about it and said they'd never be able to stay the night because of the animal, acting like you're getting the animal to drive them away, would you be upset?

crazy mouse

So I bought a new mouse on ebay. It just a simple usb, plug and play mouse for my laptop. It has a color-changing LED light, which is fun, except not. The light changing pattern goes: slow-slow-slow-slow-fastfastfastfastfastfast---all the time, even when my computer is idle. So, is there a way to reprogram the flashing pattern, to make it slightly less obnoxious?

Ok.  Today I was sitting in the break room at work when all of a sudden, Gardetto's BBQ flavored Snack Mix sounded really good to me.

So my question is this:

Are there any foods that you enjoy that the manufacturer no longer makes?

How to discipline properly/handle bad behavior?

I had to babysit 2 families Saturday night; 2 girls (toddlers) and 2 boys (6 year olds) in all. The girls were fine and were the easiest. One boy required almost all of my attention because I kept on having to put him in time outs. He wouldn't stop hitting people and even slapped my sister (she's 10 and came over to help) in the face, stomped on her foot, and said, "haha, heart_over_head's not here to help you!" He wouldn't stay in his time out, either, so my sister and I had to hold the door shut. His friend, the other boy, even helped us (probably because the boy was hitting him, too).

I felt so bad because I couldn't pay as much attention to the other kids and he was even laughing when he was in time out. I'm going to babysit only him and his sister again soon for 6 hours. What do you think I should do when he misbehaves? I cannot yell at kids. I feel that it's wrong of me to as a subsitute caretaker, though I do try to be stern. 

Oh, and outside, he was running away from us and my sister had to chase him. I couldn't do it because I had to watch 3 other kids. He ran to the backyard when we were in the front yard. That's when he stomped on her foot. The mom did say that it scared her that he ran away from perimeters.

Thanks for listening and I'd appreciate serious answers.

So I go down in my basement where I am storing all manner of things, and notice that things have started to get moldy.  Yuck.  I do not want to clean mold off of all kinds of stuff, so most of it is going out, but a few questions:

-How do I get mold off of stuff?  My main concern is a suitcase as i'm traveling in a few days.
-Will a dehumidifier help significantly or do I need to find another place to keep stuff?
-Most of the stuff is fine, just moldy and I don't want to clean it up because i'm lazy (full time student and work 25 hours a week, I don't have time) and don't even want some of the stuff anyways.  Is there any place I could donate it to or will it just have to suffer the trash?
-Anything else?

I don't really have any room upstairs, and my mom volunteered some space in her basement, but it would just be going to another basement.

How honest can one be when advising a friend on a relationship? (Where is the line of what you can or can't say?)

Does the line change if they are in love?

Is saying, "For Christ's sake, leave the bitch already, if you have this many problems so soon in the relationship it's clearly doomed, you moron," likely to damage a friendship? (I AM RIGHT. DOOMED.)
