Oh Gosh.

I'm really drunk, I got drunk with one of my employees. (I'm a supervisor at a restaurant. He's a waiter. And bought about 100% of my drinks) TQC, I open my restaurant in... 6 hours. We work together for about an hour and a half while shifts change. How much awkwardness should I anticipate?

Wow, what made me volunteer to open?

ETA : Wow. It otally forgot to mention that I kissed him. In the back of a cab. Like, and was chastized by random strangers for only doing a simple kiss. THAT is where the awkward is. Sorry. That was forget ful on my part.

whats the deal with big ten sports???


edit:  okay I am well aware of what THE big ten is.  What I'm askin' here is whats the deal with the channel?  We have comcast cable and the commercials send mixed messages.  Can we order the channel, are they still fighting about it, or what?

"Nobody gets it unless everybody pays"

Maybe I'm missing something but we always have all of the games (MICHIGAN) on TV anyway.  Did the invention of the big ten channel monopolize televised big ten games?????

So I lost my work ID and nametag (along with my cell phone and entire purse that all of this was in). I've already had to replace these both once before, once while we were hauling things around at work (and nobody thought to direct me to lost and found), and the nametag at home when I was late so figured it would be quicker to buy a new one than look for my old one.

Nametag costs $1. No big deal. ID is $20 though. If I tell my boss, she can get me one for free. I'm reluctant to tell her, but $20 is a lot. :(

What should I do?

eta: the purse wasn't stolen. I lost it.

I was just reading the paper and saw that a bunch of schools are banning unhealthy food. No more treats for birthdays, no more holiday parties, no more multicultural events, and no more bake sales. One person said that kids shouldn't share because of food allergies or diabetes. The article itself is here.

What are your thoughts on this? Should eating habits be taught by parents or by the schools?

What do you think is going to happen to the Catholic Church as a whole? Do you think it will die out?


It seems like everyone who grew up Catholic isn't practicing when they are older. Almost no males become priests anymore. Most people, it seems, don't even go to church unless it's Easter or Christmas.

First and middle names are purdy together

1. I just moved into a great new apartment. I can't ever hear my upstairs neighbor walking or making any other sort of noise, so why did I just hear him going pee?? Complete with the 'peeeeeeeee (pause) peee peeeeee (pause) pee. pee.'

2. My new building has radiators, which I've never dealt with before. It's cold in here. Turning the levers, it does nothing! Why won't they turn on?

3. What's your first name, middle name, and age? If you have siblings, what are their first names, middle names, and ages?

I am Meredith Grace and I am 25. I have a younger sister named Ellen Olivia who is 23 and an older brother named Clayton James who is 30. Now that I think about it, I don't know my step-siblings' middle names, but they are Ben (33), Mary (31), and Seth (29).

My a: You can't go to bed with wet hair b/c then it'll fall off AND don't stand in the rain, you'll catch a cold (btw: you get colds from viruses)

OMG ear dilemma!

Erm, not really.

I accidentally left all of my earrings at home...well, not accidentally exactly, because I couldn't find them. So now I only have two pairs of earrings, one dangly pair and one pair of small black studs.

I'm at the point where I'm really tired of changing earrings, but I don't want to let my holes grow back because my earlobes are too big. I want to find a pair that look pretty good and that I don't have to change ever, which I can also wear in the shower (which is why I would normally get pearl earrings but that wouldn't work) and to bed. Right now I'm doing this with the black ones but I don't really like how they look.

Which style should I get as my "permanent" pair?

(no subject)

TQC, my mind is racing and I need some random advice from the internet on a slew of random things.

I think I'm going to go ahead and move to Vegas. It's such a rash decision, but I'm tired of home life, tired of the Midwest, and tired of taking care of my Mom after her divorce. I think she's finally come to terms with everything and has completely moved on - I think. My best friend lives there so I won't be alone at all, and I want to move forward with my future already. I'm one of those annoyingly anxious kids ready to leave her teenage years behind. I have a meeting tomorrow at my college to talk about transferring.

1. Did you ever have to take care of a parent? Do you have any stories? Was it a good, or bad experience? I spent 2 years of my life, from 17 to 19, caring for my mother. In a way, I think it helped me grow up a lot faster than I would have on my own. Despite that... I'm happy to be putting these two years behind me now.

2. What are your experiences with loans? What did you find worked best for you? I applied for a Chase loan by myself - and was denied. Then with my mom as a co-signer - and was denied (she just got her own credit 12 months ago, and she needs 21 months of credit to apply) Then with my grandma - and no answer yet. I'm getting anxious and stressed about it :(

3. Those of you from/familiar with Vegas - Despite working and going to school, what is there to do for someone who isn't 21, doesn't really care to party and mostly enjoys nature and whatnot? Are there any notable sites in Southern Nevada besides The Strip? Where can I get away? I'm a big outdoorsy person. Every evening, my dog and I sit on my porch and watch the night roll in over a corn field and a cup of tea. It's wonderful.

4. When you were 19, going on 20, what were you doing? What were your ideas for your future? Did you act on them ASAP, or did you just let time slide and let whatever happened, happen? If you're younger than 19, do you think you have a grasp on your future?

mother effing phones and the bitches who sell you them

i'm trying to decide if i'm having enough problems with my phone to take it over to Cingular.

do you think these are good enough(or just enough) reasons to take my phone over to Cingular and be like, "Fix my phone!"

-it won't do anything that involves connecting to the internet, like downloading ringtones or sending picture messages, and both of these things are activated on our account.

-it won't change the message alert to silent. it's on Mute right now but it still dingles when i get a text message(note that i didn't mention voicemail. just wait 'til we get to that part) unless i've got the whole phone on vibrate or silent.

-speaking of text messages, it's been doing this thing where it won't send or receive text messages until i turn the phone off and then back on. then it'll say i have a million new texts and they sometimes go back a couple days.

-it won't change ringtones. i'm sick of the ringtone it's on now, so i tried to change it. but when people call it's the same one i've been using for months. so it says it's on this funky salsa ringtone but really it's the annoying one that scares the crap out of me if i have the volume on 5.

-this one is the best: it doesn't tell me when i have a new voicemail! i have to check my voicemail randomly throughout the day because i never know if i have a message or not.


so, TQC, do you think that's enough to ask for it to be fixed or a replacement?


BONUS QUESTION:
should they just give me a spankin' new razr since this is the third time i've had to take this piece of shit in? well, it will be the second for this particular one since this one was the replacement for the first time it broke. last time it stopped making or receiving calls or messages.

2. if not, then where might i find some other classic german mourning song or other such thing?

Family of Questions

Question the First: Can you play the tin whistle?

Question the Second: What should I put in my guy friend's birthday-in-a-box package? (That sounded six kinds of wrong, I know.) He's been kinda down lately and I want to send stuff to make him feel better, silly stuff. I've already got my eye out for a whoopie cushion. I'm trying to NOT send food, except for maybe a cookie. I need ideas!!

Question the Third: Would you rather spend $13,000 on a down payment for a Porsche or on a boob job? (Those are your only choices.)
Question the Third's Twin Sister: Do you watch "Bridezillas"?

Question the Fourth: You're on a road trip and have to stop for the night. Would you rather stay in a cheap motel ~OR~ in a KOA Kamping Kabin? It is just one night and your final destination will have a shower and all that waiting for you. (It is October, if that makes a difference.)

EDIT! KOA Kamping Kabin = cabin with a bed and a roof and... that's about it.

I need a photo

Can you do me a favour? Do you have a digital camera? I need a photo of someone sitting on the floor, with one hand on the floor propping yourself up. Pretend you're sitting up in bed or something and looking at someone lying next to you. It's for some art I'm doing and I can't find a reference photo for it.
I'm not sure if I described that properly.
Another position that's I *could* be drawing is lying more on your side and propping yourself up with your forearm, if that makes sense. Legs can be however you want. Bent, straight, one bent one straight, whatever.
I need you to be side on to the camera.
If these requirements make no sense I'll edit later. But for now, please interpret how you can?

Another question: If you draw, do you draw from photos?

hey everyone!

so I'm looking to do a detox of some kind...I want it to be safe and I'm not looking for a cayenne pepper detox or anything like that. Just a detox you've heard of that helps lose weight but isn't "extreme". I'm on my way to eliminating soda completely, candy I'm still having a hard time with...just trying to get rid of a lot of processed foods that I have a hard time staying away from, that are making me pick up weight when I'm stressed out, which has been a lot lately.

Does anyone know what I'm talking about and can anyone steer me in the right direction? I'm a college student and of course, I do eat at the cafeteria, so I'm trying to find ways to lose weight while trying to eat at the cafeteria. I just need to set some serious boundaries.

Why is it, that on those things in stores that you swipe your card on, that there's a DEBIT option if it never works?

I've never had it work, ever, not once, and yet for some reason I'm enough of an idiot to try it every time and then realise I should have pressed credit to save the poor cashiers time and sanity.

Has anyone else experienced this?! What is the difference, even, between pushing credit and pushing debit? (Edit: and no, I'm not trying to push debit with a credit card, and I know what the difference between credit or debit is, I was wondering if it's okay for me to just start pushing credit because that's the only thing that's ever worked even though it's a debit card... but apparently this problem is isolated only to me?)

hello, question club. I am new and I have so many questions for you. I'm pumped.

I will start with three:

1. Is there one grammatical error that people make in conversation that genuinely gets under your skin? 

2. Alexis Blendel in Sin City: Worst acting in the history of film?

3. What do you do for a living? 



Me:
1. When people say "Soandso and I" when they mean "Soandso and me." Because they think they are being smart, and in fact they sound stupid. The same goes for when people say "whom" and they really should be saying "who." But I hear that less often.
2. Yes.
3. High school English teacher.

3) Are there any night-time rituals that are absolutely essential to your getting a good night's sleep? Sex? Sedatives?
4) Do you usually remember your dreams?

For all you techies out there.
I have an ethernet cable plugged into both my computer and the ethernet port on the wall in my dorm room.

So...how do I get my computer to register that it's there? I mean, I'm running on a wireless connection now--how do I change it over?

I can provide more information as required. ^__^

Fun and/or Exciting Law Questions

Do you think law enforcement records [for the crime at issue, not past crimes] should be admissible as evidence against the defendant in a criminal case?


(In some jurisdictions it's permitted; in others it isn't - if you're really excited about this stuff, google Federal Rules of Evidence 803(8))


Nevermind, that's confusing out of context.

Do you like jello extra thick, like the way you get it at a chinese buffet?

What is your earliest memory?
people don't believe me when I say this.. but I had a dream about a memory, so to speak. I was a little baby.. MAYBE 1 or 2 years old. I was wearing a blue dress with black shoes, and I was in the middle of a huge hallway. I was crying and felt scared because I couldn't find my mom (I was too short/not intelectual enough to look up and see her just a few feet away). I told my mom about this dream and she said that it really did happen, and even showed me a picture from the memory (I was one of those babies that always had a camera in her face). sure enough I was crying, in a hallway, with black shoes and a blue dress.

What can I do about a skin tag?
I just discovered that I have one. it isn't painful but it's really annoying. would I just go to a regular doctor to have it removed, or does it require some special doctor? do you think my insurance would cover such a minor procedure? have you ever had one?

Whats your experience with a boy/girlfriend not being totally over their ex and moving out to figure things out?

About a month ago my girlfriend moved back to her parents because after 5 months of us dating, she wasn't over her ex. Our relationship seemed to be more healthy, and she has visited twice for several days (She lives 2.5 hours away) and we talk everyday. The reason she moved back home was to get over her ex, and told me that I am what she wanted, she just needed time. Today she calls and says that she still thinks about her ex, and said she had to not communicate with me for a few days to figure things out, this is after a month of being home.

Anyone ever have experience with this? Outcome? What should I do and not do for us to possibly stay together and work this out?

anything better than photobucket?

What is the best free online website to share your photos with others any why?

I post new photos of my daughter almost daily (family all over the country) and currently have them in groups by date (on Photobucket) but it is kind of a pita to go from album to album.

EDIT: if it also hosts video thats a plus

So, if you mix Splenda into hair bleach, it won't burn your scalp. I have done this and it works. Do you think it would do the same for regular permanent hair dye?

I didn't use to be allergic to permanent hair dye, but now I am. Horrible itching ensues and then I scratch it and my scalp and ears get all scabby and really, someone should just put one of those big cones around my neck like vets put on cats and dogs. I couldn't figure it out for a long time, but I finally read the warning labels on hair dye and it said that tattoos can cause you to be have a reaction to hair dye, which would explain it. Anyway, do you think Splenda would help? I've noticed that the "hypo-allergenic" hair dyes have the same warning labels on them... which is not helpful. Do you know of any brands that don't cause reactions (in people that otherwise do have reactions) but still get good (permanent) color?

ZOMG TQC!!!  


um...help  theres a kitten right outside my window...s/he's climbing on my screen and I'm too scared to touch him/her..

WHAT SHOULD I DO????

My boyfriend just went outside to touch it..I'm scared.  I was taught never to touch a stray animal.

What would you dO??

ETA: This cat has been jumping on my computer too.  It's kind of annoying.  lol.  My boyfriend loves the cat though.  The closest Humane Society is thirty minutes away, and I have class tomorrow morning..  Why can't someone just come claim it!

ETA 2: I ran back inside.  It's still sitting outside of my window/door.  I feel bad, but I can't take it in.  Hate me if you wish.  The humane society 30 minutes west doesn't have a working webpage.  The one 30 minutes south isn't open on Mondays and closed at 5pm Sunday.

ETA 3: AFTER CHECKING ON THE CAT LIKE EVERY THREE MINUTES, MY BOYFRIEND ENDED UP FEELING REALLY BAD AND EVENTUALLY DECIDED TO BRING THE CAT IN.

ETA 4:  OMG  HE'S EVEN LITTER BOX TRAINED!!!

I'm bored, TQC; You're boring me.

1. Would you think a relationship where one person says the above to the other is a bad one?

2. Where have I been? I haven't been doing much TQC-ing for a while.

3. Do you think your pets love you? Care at all? Does it matter to you?



1. I can do that with my SO & she wont get offended, I think that's good.

3. I don't know, it doesn't really matter to me. She snuggles with me and eats food out of my hand and I don't care if her motivations are purely to be warm & fed, I love her anyway.

I just made a time table for my boyfriend's class schedule and then color coded the classes with the buildings on his map of campus. For fun.

2. Can you think of any careers that would employ similar skills?
