So TQC I just got done watching the Colbert Report...

-Do you think the Colbert-Branson water fight was born of actual ill-will or were they just being silly? Did you find it uncomfortable or funny?

Completely unrelated:
-Other than saying 'I love you' how do you say I love you? (As in, do you have words or actions that mean that; for example how Westley always tells Buttercup "As you wish" in The Princess Bride.)

New York

Hey. My boyfriend and I are probably going to be taking a trip to New York next January, but don't know how long we'd be going for yet. My question is - What are the things we absolutely must see/do while we're there? We're both 19 and I would quite happily spend the entire time shopping but I don't think my boyfriend would be up for it, so I'm looking for some suggestions. Also, are there any good under-21 clubs there? Thanks!

Do any of you know of a good program that helps you keep appointments and scheduling? The best kind would be something that could pop up a reminder on the day when something was scheduled. It would also help if it was a program that was always running and that I didn't have to open to find out what was what. I know that sounds pretty specific, but I'm just really bad at pen and paper appointment books, and I've tried using my college's webmail scheduler, but it doesn't work very well. I'm trying to be organized this semester since I'm working an off-campus job and going to school. Any suggestions? Even if it doesn't completely fit what I'm asking, I'd like to hear it.

You know how when you read a word too much, it looks wrong? Well, this is happening to me now with a phrase I can't remember.

It is "save from" something, or "save for" something?

You know, like, "Save from/for the occasional urge to cry, I do enjoy onions."

1) I've recently read the Hannibal Lecter novels, a couple books by Stephen King (Dolores Claiborne, The Green Mile), and The Prince of Tides. Do you have any reading recommendations for me (and what are they)?

2) I think I have a tendancy to overeat. I don't currently have any weight problems (maybe that's due to a high metabolism), but I've heard that once you get to be about college aged metabolism slows and you put on weight. To get to the point: I'd like to regulate/cut my calories to prevent that problem before it starts. I'm concerned though because health teachers have warned me in the past that calory cutting can actually lead to weight gain. Is this true?

3) Did Hooked on Phonics work for you?

Do you think that parents should feel obligated to pay for a child's college education and/or wedding if they have the means to do so? What about their first car?



I personally don't think so. Those aren't necessities, they are luxuries and privileges. I think the parent should decide whether the child should have to work and pay half of those costs, if the parent will pay everything, or nothing at all. The people at my work are all, "Oh, I'll have to pay for college someday..." I just wish I could tell them that no, they don't HAVE to, it's a choice to make!

Tulips

We received tulips as a present yesterday. They're potted and about to flower. Can we transplant these directly to our garden or is it best to just to leave the bulbs undisturbed and happy? We're coming out of Winter in a few weeks, but tend to get harsh frosts in the first two weeks of Spring. What would be the best place to plant tulips in a garden and are they frost tender?

I manage a small office and have acquired a temp that I despise.  Believe me, I have my reasons.  I'm pissed; our sales reps are pissed; my back-bone-less manager is pissed.  

She called this morning, claiming that her car had been sideswiped in her driveway.  O_o  *coughbullshitcough*  She's here now, but she's been on the phone all morning, calling all over hell and gone and doing absolutely nothing work-wise.  This is sort of the last straw on a very long, abnormally-strong camel's back.

I plan on firing her next week.  I'd like to laugh in her face, TBH, but I won't because I'm not that mean.  

What can I do instead to satisfy my rage?

I sometimes feel like I'm faking being a "grownup" and I'm secretly 12 years old.

What do you feel like you're faking?

edit- reading through the comments it seems like we all have similar insecurities about things.

Does it make you feel any better to know other people are feeling the same way? :)

What was that one?

I am thinking of a book.  Here is what I know about it:

*It would definitely be classified as "chick lit"
*The main character is a girl, with red hair.  She is a bartender while going to college to become a teacher.  She is Irish.  She bakes a lot of cakes.  Her roomate is a drag queen bar performer with a lot of money.  Her family is constantly trying to hook her up with a man.
*They try and hook her up with a guy who refers to himself in the third person all the time.  In my mind, his name is Hesh since that is the name of the guy on Sealab 2021 who does that, but it is not actually Hesh.
*Other people in her apartment include a mystery man that no one ever sees, a redneck girl who only has lawn furniture and a realtor friend
*She meets a cute fella who turns out to be hot on the trail of her missing roomate, who might be involved in some sort of smuggling ring.
*Cute fella is a high-level repossessor.  He buys Redhed a big dog named...something.  Big dog is loveable and cute.  Redhed falls in love with cute dog and cute fella.

Any ideas?  Oh, and I am not going to ask whatwasthatone because if *I* were in that community, I would get really irritated with people who joined to ask one stupid question.  I don't want to irritate them.  I WANT TO IRRITATE YOU.

EDIT: To be clear, she is of Irish descent.  She is American.  I think the story takes place in Boston, maybe?

I know, I know this question has been asked a million times in a million different ways. Forgive me? I never paid attention to the answers before.

I'm going to the library today for story time (for my daughter). What books should I check out?

I just finished Harry Potter, and I generally enjoy romance dramas, mysteries, classics, and even cheesy stuff like Nicholas Sparks, Gossip Girl, etc (I know, I know). I'd love to check out anything recommended, though, deep or not. I forgot how much I missed reading until I started reading HP just this month (I read books 3-7 in 3 weeks. Yeah, I love reading).

This weekend is my friend’s bridal shower. It’s a “tool” shower and I’ve been assigned the bathroom. I got her some tool stuff already, but for part of her gift, I’m taking some song lyrics and having them laminated. I’m going to punch a hole in the top of the page and include a suction cup hook thingie to hang in the shower. This way, she can sing in the shower and have the right words. I want to do some goofy “duet” or couple-type songs (to encourage showering together) like “So Happy Together” by the Turtles and “I’ve got you babe” by Sonny and Cher. I also plan on including the DiVinyls “I touch myself” as a joke.

1 - What's a website with cute underwear that's fairly inexpensive? Like, 3 dollars a pair would be ideal. I'm not willing to spend more than 5 dollars a pair. Thongs and boyshorts are prefered.

2 - I went jogging today for the first time in over a year. Well, actually... 30 minutes was walking, and 10 was jogging. I'm going to work my way up slowly, because if I make it a miserable experience right away I know I won't stick to it. But is this doing any benefit at all? If not, when does it reach the point of progress? I'm going to do this about 5 days a week, sooo...

Questions for New Yorkers

My roommate and I are heading all the way out to NYC from LA for a long weekend in September. I was just hoping to get a few tips from you all about your favorite places/things to do. So, in my oh so organized way, I decided to write a list of questions:

1. Favorite Thai restaurant? Vietnamese?
2. Favorite Bakery?
3. Favorite ice cream?
4. Favorite cheap place for lunch or dinner in general?
5. Area of/thing to do in Central Park?
6. Show currently on Broadway?
7. View of the city?
8. Museum?
9. Place to shop for clothes (esp. for women's clothes)?
10. Independent bookstore?
11. Bar (esp if it's cheap, or at least doesn't charge a cover)?
12. Place to people watch?
13. Favorite thing you feel most visitors miss out on?
14. Farmer's market/outside market?


And after that long list, what is the one thing you think every visitor to NYC should do/see?

Just so you have a little background info about us, we're two recent college graduates. I've already been to New York twice, so I've done most of the touristy things, but my roommate has never even been to the east coast before. I think we'd sort of like to have a weekend with a mix of the touristy and the more off the beaten track attractions. We're pretty open to all sorts of suggestions, but we are traveling on a budget, so we can't afford to do anything super expensive.

Thanks for any answers you give!

So my dad just bought me a new phone for good exam results, yay!
It's an LG Chocolate, which im so stoked with.

Thing is, I lost my old phone and so the guy in the shop did something so my old number is on the new SIM. He said it could take up to 24 hours, but that I musn't turn the phone on for 2 hours.

My question is this; why? and should I pay heed to this warning?

Okay, so, I was on good ol' YouTube today watching some Penn and Teller clips (I'm not sure who they are exactly, they appear to be magicians with a politically themed mini-show) and I started to think they had a pretty smart and funny act. Then I saw this one: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9ijLulwUTY

At one point the one who speaks says that he would personally kill every chimpanzee in the world to save one human. I got completely annoyed when I heard this. I wouldn't wipe out an entire species to save myself or even someone I loved dearly. The man also went on and on about how many millions of human lives are saved by animal testing and things like that as well. I literally roll my eyes every time I hear someone say that or anything like it because I think 'Yay, more overpopulation!' Not that I don't care about humans of course, I do, but I don't see why everyone thinks we're hot shit when all we did was evolve.

So, my questions.

1) Do you think human life is more important than other animal life? Why or why not?

2) Would you kill an entire species to save one human? Why or why not?

3) When you hear about new medical advances that could potentially save millions, what is your first thought?

1) I'm making a scrapbook on the computer for some of my friends using windows movie maker. To burn it onto a CD I know that you have to convert it into a .wma document, but is there a way to burn it onto a DVD without using a program, just converting it into a different file?

2) I want to choose some songs for the scrapbook while the pictures are onscreen. Any friend-leaving related songs that you know of? So far I have Umbrella (acoustic) - Rihanna, v. by Marie Digby and Everything Changes - Staind.

Thanks!

Today on my evening walk I was assulted by a nigger. I fought him off with some mace and a kick to the balls. So, let me ask you TQC, when was the last time a nigger assulted you?

Could you tell me something about yourself that no one really knows? Mine would be that I actually hate all of you and would like to skullfuck you all to death at the same time with my 50 superhuman cocks.

Ok, so my best friend is getting married, and she did not ask me to be a bridesmaid.... is it ok that I'm offended by this? (and secretly wish I could make up some elaborate lie about how I'm getting married to show her how it feels)


And, I got my braces removed 4 years ago and never wore my retainer.... Now my front teeth are moving..... how much of a bad idea is it to try to shove my disformed teeth into the retainer that was created for them 4 years ago?

Thanks

This may not be entirely appropriate for this community, so if it isn't, lemme know, and I'll delete it forthwith.

So you are out with your friends and your girlfriend calls you after having been at work for eight hours. You've probably been out with those said friends for a few hours now, and the girlfriend sounds tired.

Ah, fuck it.
I worked eight hours yesterday and called my boyfriend when I got home to see if he wanted to hang out/see me or something. Turned out, he was with his friends, and I can only assume he had been with them for several hours. (He gets up around 1 pm, and it was seven thirty when I called). Anyway, he explains that he is with said friends, and asks, quite reluctantly, if I want him to come over. Whatever. I say no, tell him goodbye, and then hang up. Today, I called him after work and he said that he was at his sister's, and, again, asks reluctantly if I want him to come over or if I want to come over. I say no, tell him that last night I was upset, but tonight I am pissed, and that I will just see him whenever he feels like it.

So my question (and you thought I was just telling some lame story in the wrong community, didn't you?) is--am I justified in feeling this anger/disappointment?

Should I call him tomorrow, or see how long it takes him to remember that he is dating me and therefore to pick up a phone and call me first?

Have any of you had boyfriends/girlfriends that drove you batshit insane sometimes? How did that relationship work out?

What on Earth is the purpose of this?

I get that it's so that LiveJournal can contact you in case of an emergency, but what kind of emergency would LiveJournal staff need to contact you about? Perhaps if your LJ was on fire?

Weird question - are full stops still called full stops when you use three of them to indicate trailing off?

Here's my deal, I'm writing about a play, and the line ends with, "And you just..." I'm adding a note in there to say "full stops in original." But in this context, is there another term to describe that "..." action?


Nevermind, it's ellipses!

March of the duck feet

1. Surely in a community this size, there are a few people who have to buy "wide"-sized shoes. I do, and I'm finding it harder and harder to locate any. Does anyone have any suggestions for online stores that have a good selection of "wide"-sized shoes (preferably inexpensive)?

2. Do you wear "wide" or "normal" shoes?

3. What size shoe do you wear?

4. If you could only wear one type of footwear for the rest of your life, what would it be?

5. Do you prefer to go barefoot, wear some type of shoe/sandal/etc., wear socks, wear slippers, something I haven't thought of?

ETA: Since several people have suggested Payless . . . that's where I would normally shop, since they actually do (used to) have wide-width shoes. My local Payless, though, has quit carrying more than a few wide-width shoes in each size, hence the search for a new shoe supplier.

TQC, I'm bored!
Part 1:
1. What's your preferred genre of music?
2. Within that genre, who is your favorite artist/band/group/whathaveyou?
3. Who should I listen to right now, I need some new tunes. I'm getting sick of my normal drum&bass.

Part 2:
4. Why are soccer/futbol players (usually) so god damn attractive?
5. Futbol/soccer fans, what is your favorite club? Player?
6. People are trying to buy my season Galaxy tickets like crazy for between 4 and 6 times what my family pays, should I sell them (or at least 1 or 2?) or at least the games I can't go to? How much should I charge?

Weird?

TQC, over the course of two years I lost approximately 50 lbs and I'm really proud of myself for it. I did it the hard/healthy way by changing my eating habits and exercising. Lately though, due to stress and instability in my life, my eating habits have gotten really shitty again and I haven't had the time to exercise (although I will MAKE the time, starting Monday). I love to eat, and I work in a restaurant so grazing on what's around is par for the course. I'm absolutely terrified of gaining that weight back. I was never obese but I'm much healthier now.

Would it be weird of me to write down everything I eat, so I can figure out where my bad habits are and get rid of them? It seems to me like it might be helpful, but also kinda weird and on the verge of ED obsession.

I need honest opinions here (but no need to be harsh). 

I have had a pixie haircut for a few months now and have always liked it until one day my boyfriend made a comment about me not being as attractive as I used to be when it was a little longer. Needless to say, my feelings were hurt and I've been trying desperately to get hair extensions. The bad news is that I can't get them put in until I have 4 inches of hair on my head (at least) and right now I have two. 

TQC, should I keep this hairstyle or should I grow it out? 

this is me now: http://inlinethumb29.webshots.com/11740/2561901700101823936S500x500Q85.jpg

Police in Washington, DC...

My google-foo has failed me, or rather has come up with too many possibilities.

I need to know

(a) what colour the police cars are for Washington, DC
and
(b) if it would be the Metropolitan Police Department (and do they have another name or an acronym) that would respond to an assault on the George Washington University campus.

Before you ask it's for a work of fiction, I'm just trying to not arbitrarily make up things more then absolutely necessary.

Thanks in advance!

Yesterday I had a slightly sore shoulder, nothing big. Today, while walking up the steps, I randomly seemed to wrench it somehow (wasn't carrying anything or doing anything stressful) and for a while there was a slight sting in my shoulder blade in the back, and through the general area of my shoulder. At the moment, it's still sore but not excruciatingly so... It's rather difficult to move my arm forward around my front, or backward, without pain though, and in some cases I can't quite lift it up, only if I maneuver it a certain way...

Should I be concerned, see a doctor, etc.? Or should I just rest it and put something on it?

Thanks for the info. :) All the stuff I'm finding on google seems like it's moreso for severe injuries. I have no history of shoulder pain so I don't think it's that...
