1. I have a toad sitting on my head. He seems to like it here more than anywhere else I've put him since he's been sitting there peacefully for fifteen minutes now. Do you think my hair reminds him of grass? Should I be using more conditioner?

2. How long until he pees on my head?

3. Would it be mean to keep him, or should I just let him go back outside and be free? 

4. He looks sort of like a less fat version of the toad in the main picture of this wiki article. So how long do that type of species usually live? The wiki article doesn't say.

5. I caught a bullfrog as a kid and kept him as a pet for a year before I returned him to where I first caught him. What is the probability he died a few days later because he was used to getting fed crickets instead of catching them?

Dear TQC

I'm in a bit of a pickle.

There is this guy and I really have a thing for him. Problem is, he is extremely shy and always talks bad about himself. It's really bad; if I try to complement him, he says something to counter the complement. And he's always like, "why do you wanna do ______ (put a word there) with a guy like me, i'm nothing special." He's like that with everyone, and most people will laugh along and kind of agree with him, but I feel awful about it. How do you suggest I go about trying to make a move? Should I even bother? I don't think he's used to anyone actually being interested in him.

Oh, and, how do you say enjolras?

I like Anna Karenina and I like Mussorgsky. Balalaikas are cool and so is Korobeiniki. And I like the Cyrillic alphabet. And Russian accents.

The sound on my iBook has suddenly stopped working. I haven't done anything out of the ordinary except for downloading the latest version of iTunes. It's turned up all the way but there's nothing coming out.

Can you help me get it back?

Edit: It seems to have fixed itself. It turned the iBook off and back on again (which gave me a grey screen with a spinning wheel for much longer than it usually does) and the sound is working again.

If you're alone in an elevator and it stops to pick someone else up (you're both going down to the bottom floor), do you step to the back of the elevator, or stand there so they have to squish past?
I always go to the back because we have a little narrow deep elevator. Someone on the 9th or 10th floor always refuses to move though, and it's awkward to squish past them if I've got my arms full of garbage or something.

If you live in an apartment, what floor do you live on?
8th floor, but it's really the 9th story, since the bottom level isn't numbered.

If you've had to learn a foreign language and take courses (not in high school or college) for it, how much did you pay?

Burning CDs

I burned some CDs from my Windows Media Player. Then all of a sudden, it stopped working. It would tell me which songs would and wouldn't fit, but when I'd hit "start burn" it would flip to "stop burn" like it should, but then it'd flip back and the first song's status would be "inspecting. . ." and the rest would be "ready to burn."

Jucing to be healthy in Australia

1. Do you juice to be healthy?

2. What are some good DARK GREEN LEAFY VEGETABLES that can be found in Australia that will be good for juicing? E.g., in America we have mustard greens, collard greens, chard...none of which we seem to have in Australia.

3. What is your favorite juice recipe?

4. Do you find that Australian organic produce is much nicer than its commercial counterpart? I have heard that in America it has 3-5 times more nutrients, but I feel as though Australian commercial produce is of a much higher quality than American.

Videogame question

I've been playing Elder Scrolls IV: Oblivion (PC version), and I can't for the friggin life of me figure out how to drop items (not place them in drawers and stuff, I mean drop on the ground). There's no indication in the control list, and I can't find any "how-to" anywhere. Am I missing something obvious? In Morrowind you just had to click on the item and you'd hold it, and you could then click the ground and throw it down. But in Oblivion, clicking the item either equips it or uses it. That's all you can do. Yet I know it's possible, because one of the quests specifically asks for an item to be dropped onto the ground...but I dunno how to do that. :( So how the heck do I drop items?

Well it's getting about that time when my shampoo/conditioner (Garnier Fructis "Sleek and Shiny") is no longer working as well as it used to. The shine has just gone out of our relationship and I feel the need to see other hair products. It hurts me, because we've been together for two years now, but a girl's gotta do what a girl's gotta do.

But it's been so long since I've been on the market I'm not sure what I'm looking for. I have long, thick hair and want it to lay nice and flat and shiny... Garnier used to do that for me, but... well, you know how it goes. And under no circumstances do I want a product that will make my hair "fuller" or "thicker"... trust me, I don't need to be treated like that. I won't stand for it.

So based on all of that, what shampoo/conditioner should I be looking for, TQC?

Invitations question

Would you rather get Evites, personal email invites, mail invites, or verbal in person or phone invites to someone's events ?

These are like mini golf trips, rollerblade trips, bicycle trips, skiing trips, and other parties or events. When I send Evites, I get replies from some people, and they don't reply to a personal email or phone call. And I also have the reverse happen, but I am curious what people hate or like about the above types of invites.

They say, about 11 000 000 americans are illiterate, they can't read! Is that true? And why?
I knew, that american system of secondary education is bad, but I've never thought it is SO BAD.
You know, there are some americans in our town, they are mormons. I visited their meetings, and noticed, that they do a lot of grammatic mistakes and have poor knowledges in geography. And when I mentioned Athens, one of that guys exlaimed: "Athens? Oh, Italy!". :))) Another one wrote "dolor" instead of "dollar". :))) Sometimes I thought: "they must be kidding, that's a joke", but I understood later, that they really knew nothing. All of them were "anglosaxsons" from normal families of the middle class. (I mean, the illiteracy of "afroamericans" and "latinoamericans" can be explained by their life in criminal ghetto and all that, you know.)

What are good fund raising ideas for schools? They are looking for ideas at work, to help the senior class fund the prom, and I figured that TQC would have some good ones.

Things they already do:
-sell candy bars
-sell ice cream
-sell Krispy Kreme donuts

They are looking for both selling ideas as well as event ideas.

What sort of fund raising happened at your school that you loved (or didn't work so well, even)?

Loving an identical twin

I'm curious about this. (for some fanfic reasons... and just ordinary curiousity. Not that in the fanfic it's actual twins...)

Do any of you love one of a pair of identical twins (or triplets  or more if you prefer)?
Are you attracted to both of them?
Do they worry about the fact that their partners could be attracted to both of them? Or worry about  inadequacy or something? (even though I assume it's about the personality as well, do they worry that since you find them hot, you might prefer their twin's personality?)
Can you tell them apart?
Were you friends with both of them first? If you were friends with both first, why'd you pick one of them over the other for a relationship?

Any of you who aren't  (or are, if you want) actually dating/married to a twin but are friends, have you ever been friends with one of them more than the other, then due to some sort of circumstances, got closer to the other one instead?

Anyone here dated one of a pair of twins, then due to circumstances, ended up dating the other one? Why? Did that bother you?

I doubt many people will be able to answer any of these but I thought I'd ask anyway!

I need help with computery things: Somebody help me put DVD's on my iPod!

I have an iPod with video and some DVD's that I want to load onto it. Somebody gave me these links for DVDShrink and Videora to do it. I got the DVD's ripped onto my computer using the DVDShrink, but I can't get them converted so I can put them on my iPod.

When I ripped the DVD's, they were saved to a folder with the title of the DVD and a bunch of files inside (screencap). There's not "a" file that I can select to convert to put on my iPod; it's a whole folder... and I can't convert the folder, either.

What are some great phone numbers?

Looking for any useful and FREE services to program on my cell phone.

Here's what I have so far.

Free 411 service: Self-explanatory. Only catch is having to listen to a short advertisement.

Rejection Hotline: Automated message telling any caller that the person who gave the number does not want to date him/her.

FreeConference - Free Conference calls.

TellMe - A recorded voice invites you to say “Travel,” “Traffic,” “News Center,” “Stock Quotes,” and so on. The system is smart enough to know your location, which pays off when you say “Movies,” “Restaurants,” “Driving directions” or “Taxi.” (This service, run by Tellme Networks as a showcase for its corporate voice-recognition technology, also lets you say “Time” when you’re setting your watch. 800-555-TELL (800-555-8355)*

Free International Calls (Good only thru 2010) - call any of 50 countries from the United States, free. Talk as long as you like. You pay only for a call to the access number in Iowa, which is 712-858-8883; if you use your cellphone on nights or weekends, even that’s a free call. There’s no contract, no ads, nothing to sign up for. At the prompt, press 1 for English. Then punch in 011, the country code and the phone number. The call rings through immediately. However, in some countries, you can reach only landlines, not cellphones. And in part because FuturePhone’s lines have been flooded, its success at placing calls is not, ahem, 100 percent.*

I'll be updating this post as new finds come in.

listening devices at work

I've worked at a convenience store seasonally for the last four years(think Clerks style). Last summer the company I work for was bought out by a competitor and they're now in the process of converting all the stores. Mine was just finished. Because of this I've been contemplating going back.

I just got back to school and found out from co-workers that not only did our store manager get fired for not agreeing to certain terms (he's a great guy, I would hate to work for anyone else), but the new company also installed listening devices near the cash registers to listen in on employees conversations.

My questions:

1) Are these listening devices legal?

2) Would you work for a place that had listening devices installed?

3) Do you think it's strange that a convenience store would be so interested in their employees conversations? (Considering we get paid just above minimum wage...)

When it comes to makeup, I am extremely basic... lipgloss and nothing else. On the odd special occasion, I'll wear mascara. Now, I have Maybelline's Great Lash mascara but don't find it to be all it's cracked up to be - within an hour, I have panda eyes from it! Eek! Show me the way to a better mascara!

How weird is this scenario?
You have a 10 year old daughter, and she frequently goes on holiday with her friend (who is a year younger) and her parents. One time she comes home, and during the course of the conversation she reffers to her friends father as "Daddy" realising her mistake she adds "Oh, Andy makes us call him daddy. Me and Beth and Claire (his wife)." How do you react?
Our daughter can't figure out why we have a problem with this.

So, IS this something I (and in particular my husband who fought long and hard to be 'daddy' to my kids) should have a problem with?

Do men frequently insist on being called daddy by everybody?!?!?

My big sister who is "Mz Worst Case Scenario" now thinks this man is a pervert. Do you think he is?

Should we ban our daughter from going on holiday with them?

I am a natural-born citizen of the United States of America.

I have been watching several British, Scottish, and Irish Films recently and have noticed something abou a curse word:

There is no definitive country associated with the usage of the word "shit". Some of the international films say the vulgar term differently.

I'm curious as to which cultures or which countries pronounce "shit" as "shyte" and which pronounce them as as "shit".

I've been reading guidebooks and stuff, but you know, it's not the same. I'll be traveling to other places in Ireland too while I'm there, so pretty much anything you have to say about Ireland would be interesting.

as i sit here polishing off half of a quart of ritter's fresh banana frozen custard and being in serious tastegasm land, i wonder--

what's your favorite ice cream?

when you have ice cream at home (not like, a sundae from a store) do you eat it from the carton or do you scoop it into a bowl?

I need some info/advice from someone who is familiar with allergies, since I am not.  I'm housesitting right now for a family, and one of the kids is allergic to many things--peanuts, milk, wheat, etc.  I don't know the family very well, but they left a detailed note for me that included a P.S. that said "No peanut products in the house please!"  Not thinking, tonight I bought this peanut butter cookie/bar thing at a coffee shop and ate about half of it inside the house before I remembered.  Horrified, I took it outside, ate another bite, and threw the rest away in the dumpster.

The family is not coming home until Sunday, so is there anything I can do now, or is it even a huge deal since it was only in the house for about 5 minutes?

EDIT: I should have mentioned, the kids are not home--I'm literally just house-sitting and taking care of the tortoises.

Is there a travel site that will let you choose a price and it shows you the destinations? Like "where can I go for $x"?

Bonus points if you can choose your departure city!

On my lower boob there is this patch of really itchy skin. It's sort of pinkish red and bumpy. It's maybe two inches long and an inch wide and ovalish shaped. I had thought it was a bug bite this whole week and hadn't bothered to really inspect it further until tonight. So.

1. What is it?

2. Am I going to die?

3. Am I going to have to chop off my boob?


Do you ever lie on your LJ? Do you always tell the truth? Do you just tell maybe a yarn or two to make your life sound a little more interesting than it really is? Or do you just flat out lie?

Me personally, I add a little here and there to make my story sound better. lol

Since we're discussing booze...

I've FINALLY made it behind the bar (working my way up from serving, cocktailing, to bartender!). I've been training for a while and I have my first shift on my own on Saturday.

So, TQC, what makes your favorite bartender so good?
What brings you back to a bar?
What are some drinks YOU think every bartender should know?

Oh, and how do you get motivated to write a paper? I have an 8 page one due tomorrow. I've done all the research, have an outline, etc... I just can't seem to get myself to actually write it.

TQC, why does your life suck right now?

I just moved 1800 miles for school. I don't regret my decision, but I've been here two weeks and I'm starting to get lonely and I am having trouble finding a job. School doesn't start for a couple of weeks and I don't have a lot of money. :( Do any of you New Jersey TQCers want to be my friend!?!?

Do you know how to play poker? What kind?

Any good at it?

Do you play for real money, or just free online places? If real money, what's the most you've won, and what kind of game was it (with friends, in a casino, etc)?

Ever watch it on TV?
