 Is it wrong to take a shower with your boyfriend in your dorm room, if you share that shower with three other people?

I promise there would be no sex (or exhcnage of bodily fluids), just two people saving time.

Randoms again.

1. I'm surfing half.com for some good love novels/love stories. Something like The time traveler's wife - something not too cheesy and has a good story to it. I'm not a big fan of Nicolas Sparks but I'm willing to try out something of his if you think it's really good. What are some good love story recommendations? If you can somehow incorporate some fantasy in there, you get bonus points.

2. What are some things NOT to do at concerts?

3. What are some things you've been procrastinating on (either big or small) and have recently finished?
My A: I've been wanting to change my earring in my cartilage (in my ear) but it's still not completely healed - a year later - and so today I finally put one of those small hoopy earrings in it. Yay?

4. When I get a job out of college, what is the starting salary I should look for, nevermind profession?

5. Would you rather be in a job that you'd hate but make lots of money, tolerate and make a decent amount of money, or make a small salary but absolutely love what you do? In all truthfulness please, cause I know money is a big factor sometimes.

Thanks homies.

I am having a real hard time finding the name of a song. Because I don't know how to describe it other than audio, here is a crappy recording of myself humming it. Of course, I can't recreate the instruments, but music wizards please give me some ideas. :)

For the past several days, my body has chosen to wake up at 7:59 AM, on the dot. This morning, I woke up at 6:59 AM, on the dot.

Is this peculiar? I know that people generally wake up at the same time every morning after getting on a routine, but I was hardly on a routine before... and to be waking up at such a precise time?

On an unrelated note: does anyone take medicine for ADD? If so, what kind? Does it work? What are the side effects?

When you're actively on the job hunt and applying to what seems like hundreds of jobs, how do you keep yourself straight on what job you've applied to and where? Do you keep a list or something? I'd hate for someone to call me and be all "We'd love to have you come in and talk to us!" and have to ask them who the hell they are.

Also, how do you keep yourself positive and moving forward when you're on such a job hunt? It can get really depressing sometimes. :(

Can toothpaste go bad?

I bought some toothpaste two months ago, the same brand and flavor I always use. I just opened it yesterday and the texture and flavor seem "off" somehow, but I can't pinpoint it. The color may also be slightly off. It's Tom's of Maine, so it doesn't have any preservatives. Can toothpaste go bad? What up with that?

europe in january

My friend and I are going to travel somewhere in Europe in January. Most of Europe is cold and dark then.

We're looking at maybe Greece, the South of France, Southern Italy, Sicily... but we really don't know where to go. Where would be the best place to visit at that time? The warmest? I've already been to Rome, so we're looking for something new this time.

Before you start asking silly questions- We have to be in Europe because that's where I live. It has to be January because that's when we have off from school.

Thanks for any suggestions!

Y hallo thar, bbs.

I've been thinking. I want to lose around 5-7 pounds before Halloween so that my costume will fit a little better. 

1) Is it possible to lose that amount of weight in the time I want to lose it in? If not, how much weight can I lose?

2) What do I need to do to lose weight, food wise? As it is now I don't drink anything but water, I don't eat snack foods like chips or candy bars, and I try to stay away from frozen foods. Pretty much all I ever eat regularly are eggs, celery, cheese, low calory pudding, anything you can make with potatoes, and tomatoes.

3) As far as exercise goes...Will yoga help? I'm really not into running outdoors/doing sports for exercise. Any other suggestions welcome.

Right now I'm 5'10 and 130 pounds if that makes any difference in any of this.

I'm freezing!

TQC,  do you know of any studies showing that the temperature of the office influences the productivity of the employees?

It is always freezing at night and on the weekends in the office where I work, but no matter how much we complain to the management (who has control over the thermostat... it's not like there's one on the wall), they don't seem to do anything. 

Right now, it's 68º and to some that might be fine, but most of the people in my office are wearing blankets.

What do you consider flirting, and what do you consider hitting on someone? Do you think of them as different or the same?

Why is it that my parents think I have a nasty attitude if I don't agree with them? My mom just called me a bitch for asking my dad not to take the computer, all the video game systems, our only bottle of eyeglass cleaner, and my inhaler (he's too lazy to refill his own prescription) with him to Florida. Am I selfish because I want to have some sort of amusement while he's gone for a week?

I'm a bears fan and today they are going up against the Packers. who do you think will win?
bears have a 1-3 record and packers have a 4-0 record.
Who is your favorite player?
In this match up it is a toss up between Urlacher because he is an unbelieveable defender and Farve because even though i hate the packers, you have to admire his skill.

Well the bears ended up pulling it out and winning. i seriously thought that they were gonna loose

There's a girl in a couple of my classes that looks a lot like Sarah Jessica Parker. I would never say that to her because I'm sure she's heard it a million times before, and I don't know if she would even take that as a compliment. I, for one, adore SJP. Whereas, many people think she looks like a foot :-(

Has anyone ever offended you by telling you that you look like someone you think is unattractive? (Famous or not--doesn't matter).

So, I want to dress up as Disney Pocahontas for a Halloween party I'm going to. We don't generally to Halloween in Australia, so I'm a n00b with costuming.

How in blazes do I work out how much material I need to buy to make this costume? I can so, but I have no experience with this sort of thing and neither does Dad.

Yeah, I take my measurements, but how does that translate to actual material quantity?

What's the easiest way to do this?

I admit to reading customers_suck. Recently, there has been an influx of criers - people who get emotionally set off at even the smallest thing and will straight-out bawl while at work in front of customers. Lots of these people claim to be very emotionally unstable/fragile/have rampant panic attacks/etc. It's caused a shit-ton of wank, which I don't hope to replicate, but I am honestly curious as to how prevalent it really is.



1. What is your opinion on people who are not in control of their emotions at work?

2. Have you ever cried at work? What was the reason behind it, and what did your supervisor do?

3. What would you do if you went to buy groceries and the checkout girl was bawling (or something similar)?

1) Is it weird that I'd rather wear glasses than contact lenses? I hate the fact that I need glasses to drive or read things far away, but I think glasses are really cute. People tease me for them though and act like I'm nuts not to be totally ashamed of them and want contacts. Now, that I think about it, pretty much all of my friends (my age and older) have contact lenses.

2) Let's say you're staying the weekend at a friends house. They do nothing to entertain you the entire weekend, aren't interested in any of your suggestions for amusement, ignore you for long stretches of time, and eat things in front of you without offering you any the entire time. Is this sort of thing acceptable if it's a fairly good friend?

3) Are there any TQCers you like? (I'm fond of the person with the House/pumpkins icon and the girl who wears a lot of eyeliner...There are others I like as well)

7) I'm going to a friend's party. This friend knows people I went to high school with last year. Some of these people adore me, but others strongly dislike me, think I'm a cruel bitch, and might even feel that I've wronged them (depending on their level of insanity). If I run into these people at her party (the ones who hate me), how should I respond? Should I just smile and move on to talk to someone who likes me? I hold no ill will toward any of them, but I wouldn't be surprised if my very presence really pisses a few of them off.

Mushroom Cake?

For my husband's birthday, I thought I'd be clever and make him a 1 UP cake since he's all about some Mario. I thought I had life figured out and set out to buy a ball pan to make the top and was just going to make some rounds for the bottom. Clever, right? NO. Yanno why? Because the only ball pans I could find were very small - especially compared to what I need/want.

So I settled on a cupcake cake pan, thinking I could make two halves, glue 'em together with frosting and level the bottom and TA DA! instant 3-D mushroom! GENIUS! Right? Can you cake afficianados tell me if this is a (warp) pipe (har har) dream? Please help with any advice you can, as I have to secretly bake this cake Tuesday night! Thanks guys and gals!

Halloween costumes...

My cousin and I want to get our tots' portraits done together in their Halloween costumes.

She has been wanting to do a Hershey Kiss for her kid (non-walker) since before she was even born and I told her she has to do it this year because next year she'll be walking and can't be a costume lump! She'll regret it if she doesn't do it this year!

But my question:

Any ideas for my toddler to be consistent with any sort of Hershey Kiss theme?

I thought about Hershey Bar but uuuugly. It also has to be something that would look cute on its own as they won't be trick-or-treating together, only getting portraits together.

If you're an athiest/non-Christian, or could imagine what that'd be like, would you read your kids children's books like "How Much He Loves You: A Tale of God's Gift" or illustrated Noah's Ark type stories, etc? If you're a Christian, do you read your kids books about other religion's mythologies? I've been working in a kid's library the past couple weeks, so I see a lot of really heavily Christian books, or books with witches and witchcraft and whatever in them, and it made me curious. I haven't been bitched out by any crazy parents over them yet, but I feel it's only a matter of time.

1. If you were going to (hypothetically) enroll in one of these programs, which would you choose?

2. Is it wrong of me to tell my boyfriend that the program he is part of is a waste of time and money? ETA: I have not actually said this to him yet, and probably won't after reading the comments.

icky sicky

Well my sister has offically gotten me sick, I think i'm finally going to take off a day of work tomorrow due to this stuffy-nose, sneezy, plugged ears things.
Here are my 2ish questions:

What should I do tomorrow while i'm home alone, laying on the couch trying to feel better?
What should I get/have to help me get better?
What are your favorite cold remedy cures?

<3,

I drink a shit load of water every day, I wash my face, I moisturize my face, I sleep with my hair pulled back, I've tried both Salicylic acid AND bensozl peroxide, and I've tried using the bare minimum of products (just some dyeless, perfumeless face wash one a day).

WHAT AM I DOING WRONG STILL THAT LEADS TO PIMPLES?

Am I mean?

My 9 year old (yeah the one with contacts) says she still believes in the toothfairy so she can get money. She doesn't believe. I told her the tooth fairy wouldn't come.

So, am I mean?

What age were you when you last recieved tooth fairy money?

What's the 4-1-1?

Do any of you have the Samsung A437 phone? If so, how's it workin' for you? (Similar to the SYNC, but without the MP3 player part, which I have no desire to have, thanks.)

Or any other suggestions on AT&T phones I should keep my eye on? I get to throw this POS Nokia to the dogs on December 26th, so I'm trying to decide what I'm going to upgrade to. Motorolas and the iPhone are out.

how do you feel about joe torre's tenuous hold on his job at this point?

do you think the yankees will be able to pull a win out of the series with the indians? do you think they'll hold on to the world series?

do you think steinbrenner is doing the right thing regarding torre or is he a giant idiotic douche?

1. If my friend is trying to get me to say the word "cunt" when we hang out, and if I don't she ridicules me, is this manipulation? I want to call her on it but maybe I'm just being oversensitive.

2.When you go shopping, what area of the store do you visit first?

3. How do you spend your free-time?

What color should I paint my nails?

a. gold with glitter and little blue spangles
b. ohmycraphot pink with glitter & blue spangles
c. dark purple with glitter & blue spangles
d. Just the clear polish with blue spangles

Yes, the blue glittery topcoat is necessary. I just bought it and I love it.

...maybe spangles is deceptive. What if I just say it's blue glitter?

Let's say you were born with your father's surname, but your parents divorced when you were a kid. Would you keep his surname when you became an adult, or change it to your mother's maiden name, or some other option? Why? Does it matter how old you were when they split?

Edit: What if the dad was a deadbeat? No contact, no child support, etc.

How would you feel if your kid changed his or her name in this situation?

What is your worst car story?
 
Anything along the lines of car breaking down, running out of gas, locking keys in car, battery dying, or anything else you might have. I have had a summer and fall of awful car moments, so I'm interested to hear other people's as I'm sure they could top mine.

I'm pretty bored tonight, not to mention all sinus-ey

Does anyone here watch Kitchen Nightmares with Gordon Ramsey? I love that show.

Am I wrong to not want to support businesses whose core beliefs I do not support? The reason is religious, and I keep getting told that it's okay to not want to buy from a company because they may hurt the environment or test on animals, etc. but it's NOT okay if the reason is religious in nature. Last time I checked, I lived in America and can do business with whomever I chose to!

 Hey. I graduate from high school this year and I'm trying to plan a gap year (or so) in Europe or possibly South America. I'm looking into organic farming, there's this organization called WWOOF that has a network of organic farms all over Europe. Or so I hear. I don't have much information about it, but it sounds awesome. Yeah, I looked at the websites and stuff, I'm trying to figure something out, but I don't really know what I'm doing. Does anyone have any experience in an organization like this and could give me any tips?

I want to look into other programs too, but I don't have much money to spend. I'm hoping to find something that can pay. I know English, Spanish, German and French, but I want to study other languages so I'm looking for opportunities anywhere in Europe or South/Central America.

Do you know any other programs like WWOOF?
Are you familiar with WWOOF and can you tell me what exactly I have to do to plan a trip for next year?

Also, does anyone have any general advice for travel or studying foreign languages (the main focus of my trip)?

Also interested in any gap year horror stories, got robbed, got lost, gypsies, mafia, stuff like that.

What's your favourite euphemism for drunk?

Do you and your friends have any terms for it that you haven't heard elsewhere?



At the moment, I'm loving 'in a heap', but with heap pronounced 'hayp' (emphasising the rural-Irish sound of the word.) It's going through a popular phase with my friends, after one of them brought it from home.

What are some good tv shows to netflix?  We like Grey's Anatomy, and Scrubs, but not house. Any suggestions?

Also, are there any good home design programs out there?  Easy interface is very much desired.

1. I have a skirt that looks like this only it's navy blue silk and I want to wear it with boots like this. What color/style top should I wear with them? It will be 86 degrees in Philadelphia tomorrow, so maybe I'll end up with cute sandals instead.

2. What is your all-time favorite work of art? Mine is this icon of the Annunciation from the Monastery of St. Catherine at Sinai.

Harry Potter

My family and I were staying in a hotel when HP7 came out and we met a woman (in her 20s, it looked like) who told us she collected all the books but didn't read them, but she watched all the movies. She collected the books because she thought they would someday become collectors' items worth lots of money(huh? with millions released at a time all over the world?).

What in the world could possess someone to like the movies but not even want to crack open the books?

Where are the TUURRTLLLLLLESSS!?!?

Why am I so sleepy all of the time? I went from having insane insomnia to feeling so tired I can barely move. I just woke up a little while ago from a two hour nap and I'm still exhausted. : (

What is your favorite television show? Why?

Something is howling outside of my window. Am I going to be murdered by a werewolf?

haunted houses

I'm working at a haunted house this year and really want my character to stand out. For those of you that go to them or have gone to them, what are some of the most memorable scary moments/characters you encountered?

Also, does it bother you when people leave promotional leaflets under your windshield wipers?

 So, lately I've gotten mosquito/ant bites all around the inner parts of my feet, and they itch like crazy, so the past couple of nights I wore sneakers to avoid them.

Even though I wore sneakers last night, I woke up with this huge bite on the bottom of my foot (no really, it's HUGE.  It's about an inch and a half big).   But that's my luck.  It itches like hell, and it hurts to walk on because I'm literally walking on a lump.  

How does one manage a bite like this?

Brad Pitt or Edward Norton?

ETA: Lol. There seems to be a majority. If it makes Brad any hotter, I mean both of them as they are in Fight Club. Not nasty Hollywoodesque ten-million-adopted-babies Brad.

Since we have a question about what movies you hate the most, what movies do you love?

Personally, I'm still addicted to V for Vendetta; I still watch it all the time, and was even dorky enough to go as V for Halloween last year. Also, my father recently suggested Empire of the Sun to me (Steven Spielberg film, 1987) and thought it was brilliant. And...anything with Johnny Depp, especially when it involves Tim Burton as the director. :p
