Dear TQC,

I'm being pressured to audition for American Idol, but refuse to do it unless I can think of a song that is interesting enough and fun enough to do it. It's a pain in the ass to take off work to audition for something that I have like a one percent chance of making, so I might as well do something fun.

That said, I'm blowing off doing any actual work to make a mix CD of songs I can sing in my car on the way home.

So, what would YOU sing if you were auditioning for American Idol?

Whenever I check my Friends page, the words in some of the entries are invisible until I highlight them.  Sometimes they'll disappear when I click to "un-highlight" them, sometimes they'll stay.  I just had one where half of a world was visible and half wasn't.  This doesn't happen when I check a journal or community, only when I'm looking at my Friends page.

Does this happen to anyone else?  Any ideas as to why it happens or how to get it to stop?  I thought it was just a glitch, but it's been going on for a couple of months now, and it's really annoying.

There's this flower that only blooms, like once a year or once every 10 years, for only a really short period of time, like 5 seconds. And the flower might have a really bad smell (?). And these people are having a flower show and they have the rare flower and they throw a big get together for everyone to come see it bloom. But then there is some distraction in the background and everyone turns around to see what is going on, and they miss the flower blooming.

kids and punishment

My son is turning 11 in two weeks and has lived and breathed a new bike...a really expensive one called a Brodie Menace. We surprised him yesterday with it, mostly because we couldn't wait to give it to him. We talked to him at length about taking care of it, never lending it out, never leaving it unattended, etc. Some local kids have made jumps in the dirt pile near our house; yesterday and today he made friends with one boy and asked me if he could take a short ride to the store with his new friend. I said yes although I felt a little uneasy about it -- so my husband was arriving home soon after and he said he would drive by and check on him. He wasn't there. After about 40 min of driving around (and total panic on my part), we found him near his new friend's home -- not far from the dirt jumps and our home. The new friend was riding the Brodie. My son's eyes were massive when he saw us.  He promised not to lend his new bike, and less than 24 hrs later he broke that promise. He wasn't where he said he would be, and he didn't check in before changing his plans/route. So, he's going to be grounded, with no use of his new bike until his actual birthday (in 2 weeks), no tv for one week, and no fun stuff. He has two playoff baseball games this week and he's one of the best players -- should I make him miss that too? I think he should go to baseball because his team is depending on him.

What do you think is a fair punishment for a kid in this circumstance?

What did you do wrong as a kid and what was your punishment?

EDIT: Just to clarify: the larger issue was him not being where he said he would be, and going to the new kid's house/street without letting us know.

Cats

I have a male cat.  I got him fixed last year.  I move.  I meet my roommate's girlfriend who says he's not actually fixed because his balls are still visible.  
So, what does a male cat look like after the 'fixation'?  
This is my first cat, so I really don't know.  I have a little certificate saying 'hey, this girl cut off this cat's balls!'  I remember when he came home, they [as in the balls] looked ... smaller?  and they had stitches, so I'm assuming they did something. ...

One one hand, you can catch flack for putting your child at risk for autism if you immunize him or her, providing that the study that says that the preservatives in vaccines causes autism is right. On the other hand, many of those diseases that have vaccines are quite nasty and dangerous too.

Which one of these terrible situations would you prefer to happen to you:

What would you do in these terrible situations:

1. You go to a store, buy some things, and on your way out the door beeps at you, indicating that you haven't paid for something. The security people come over and accuse you of stealing, and you insist that you haven't and refuse to let them search you, since why would you steal something when you already paid for your stuff? You even show them your bag and your purse (if you carry a purse) to prove you didn't take anything. They let you go, but when you get home you realize that there's a pair of ugly $50 earrings that you must have put in there by accident, because you definitely were not interested in them at all.

2. You have hired a cleaning person / babysitter / someone else who works directly in your house while you're not there, and one day you realize that your $50 portable speakers (which let's say you keep on your dresser in your bedroom) are gone. Completely gone. You search everywhere and they're nowhere to be found. The next time said person comes to work for you, you berate them and accuse them of stealing your speakers. They get angry and refuse to work that day and leave, insisting they never took them. After this incident you're sitting on your couch fuming, deciding over whether or not to call the police, and then your friend / child / sibling walks in and says that they, in fact, borrowed the speakers while you were out, and put them on the table in front of you.

And please don't answer "I don't choose either because I wouldn't do any of those things!" You MUST do the things indicated, that's part of the game.

EDIT: I'm always so bad at making these situations evenly bad. Ah well. Still choose one though! Even though I probably know which one you'd choose.

TQC,

A friend of mine recently came over to visit from Japan, and my task is to show her around America. A fitting task, seeing as how she was the one to show me around Japan.

Now, the problem is that I need ideas of what to do. I had originally planned a day at the waterpark, but her and her sister didn't pack swimsuits, and are iffy about borrowing ours. So now I need to come up with an alternate plan in less than 5 hours. So far, I'm considering activities like Lazer tag, the mall, etc. Assuming we have roughly 20 bucks per person, what are some fun things to do?

A few Q's...

1.) What is Craigslist? I saw it mentioned on some previous posts and I'm a little confused.

2.) How do you dream? Is it only one scene, or is it like a little movie? Do you ever dream and fall back asleep and pick up where you left off? Have you ever had the EXACT same dream more than once? What is the strangest dream you've ever had?

Would you be uncomfortable as a parent if I asked you this?

I've been babysitting a boy that misbehaves at times. Tomorrow I'm babysitting him again and want to ask the mom this: "If Henry misbehaves, I'm thinking of ignoring it and just praise him a lot when he's behaving well. And if he hits his sister, I'll have her go somewhere with my sister (my sister comes along with me to help), but won't give it much attention. Is this okay with you?"

I don't want to make the mom uncomfortable...if you were her, would this bother you? Please be honest (and serious).

Also, I asked the mom before what to do and she said time outs, but that hasn't been working. I had to carry him up to his room and he runs out.

Are you familiar with the term BNC? And don't try urbandictionary. It's not in there.
If yes, have you ever had a BNC? Isn't it the best?
If no, are you bursting with curiosity right now?

EDIT. now you can know.
It's a Backwards Naked Crap.

Laundry

When did you learn how to wash clothes?

My mom had me doing the household laundry at 13. I'm always surprised when I meet someone who is over 18 and they don't know how to do their laundry correctly. Throwing colors in with whites, too much soap, not enough soap, washing dry clean only items, etc.
