1. what's wrong with me?
2. am i going to die?
3. what can i do to halt/stop immanent death?
4. will you buy me a pony if it's cancer?

camera advice - old SLRs

I would like to buy an older/used 35mm SLR, something in the $50-$70 price range. It doesn't have to be amazing but I'd like to get something decent that was made with some degree of quality and will probably still work well. Any opinions from photo geeks here?

What do you think of this one?


(Backstory: My mom had a cool, heavy, lots-o-metal-parts SLR from the 70s that I used back in high school for photography class. It was great, but she sold it without asking me. :( So now I want another. I can't remember what brand it was unfortunately.)

This 5 year old girl came into my work yesterday with her dad and she was telling my co-worker how she's going trick or treating for Halloween. She's going to be a princess, her daddy's going to be a vampire, and her mom "is going to be the Bitch of Halloween".

haha. My co-worker had her repeat it to her dad, and he started cracking up. I guess she meant "Witch".

I'm still awake! WOOHOO! And I've got some of my work done, too.

HOWEVER I have a personal problem that's bothering me and I figured I'd ask you guys. My boyfriend and I are in a long distance relationship that's currently Charleston, West Virginia - Dublin, Ireland. We're used to the long distance thing, but we're still figuring out how to communicate since our usual method of cellphones is shot due to expense. The lack of regular communication is stressing me out badly, on top of a few other things like school work and my being in a foreign country for two weeks. The problem is that I'm taking the stress out on him, and I snap at him without realizing it. It's upsetting both of us; I love him and don't understand why I keep getting so snappy and losing my patience. :(

WHAT SHOULD I DO, TQC? How do I stop doing this? It's making me more stressed and AHHH. IT'S A VICIOUS CYCLE.

And for the none-drama: Ever come across a funny sample of Engrish?
I bought my friend a zippo in Vietnam that said, "if you want fuck smile when this lighter you hand me back."

ETA: We do use skype, and that reminds me.. Any suggestions in the headset department? I need a new one.

work friends = online friends?

Inspired by this:

Are you "friends" with any of your co-workers on social networking/blogging websites (Livejournal, Myspace, Facebook, etc)? If so, have you had any issues or drama when you've posted about work-related problems?

I tend to keep my online social networking separate from my work/school, so I don't actively seek out my co-workers/classmates on Myspace or LJ. I probably wouldn't add them as friends to my Myspace so that I could be free to rant, and same for LJ.

Eeny meeny miney mo, catch a nigger by the toe. If he hollers, let him go. Eeny meeny miney mo.

Were you taught something different (eg, tiger instead of nigger)?
If you sang it the original way, were you told to change it?

We used to sing it in primary school, but were told to change it to tiger. I never realised what I was singing until I got older. And why we were singing it like that in Australia, I'll never know.

1. Why do you consider your hometown YOUR hometown?

The place I consider my hometown is not where I was born or where I live now. My parents still live there, and I lived there from when I was 7 years old until I was almost 22. I guess I did most of my meaningful growing up there, so that's why.

BONUS: do you know where I can physically go and buy the Grey's anatomy trivia board game? If I can't find it while out shopping today I'll just buy it from the ABC.com store when I get home.

I'm in charge of what's on TV at work - It's a bar/restaurant, and we keep the volume on silent. When I work nights, I usually do some combination of football/baseball/other sports. As far as I know, MLB isn't on until Thursday, and we don't have any football on, either.

TQC, what should I show on our TVs tonight?


Do you order for your SO or vice versa?
What do you think about people you see ordering for the other?

I usually let my fiancée order for me (fiancée sounds so pretentious and all 'look at me I can bag someone', but you said I had to call her that TQC, so it's your fault)[edited to change my abominable fiance to fiancee, which by the way has just removed any shred of liking I had for the word because it was gender-neutral]. It's either because:
  • I just don't feel like being social today, and that includes talking to wait staff.

  • I like all the options on the menu (or in a section of the menu) and If she makes the decision it takes the pressure off me, and if it's crap it's not my fault (not that it's her fault, just the guilt I would have felt about wasting my money on something dodgy when I should have selected something else is gone).

  • The food has a stupid name. I will not order food called "all berry bang", "boy crush", "chilli chilli bang bang" or anything of that ilk. If my SO isn't there I either wont order it by name (eg. "all berry bang" becomes "the berry one") or I wont order it at all. STOP HAVING STUPID NAMES!

  • I feel that people are looking at me like I'm being controlled against my will though. ARE YOU?!

     What is the best way you've found to cure a cough? 

    The kind that just sits in your throat and itches unless you are actively eating or drinking...and the moment your throat is idle, it wants to cough. The kind that keeps you up at night until you've fallen into a deep sleep. The kind that feels like a deep wheezing, whooping almost.

    I feel dumb for thinking about going home for a cough alone but it's so annoying to cough every two minutes! I just don't have much faith in cough syrups..not sure why.

    Poll #1068641 Playing God

    You're given the power to heal 100 dying people. They'll be cured from their particular injuries and ailments. In order for you to gain this power, you have to kill. You're given a sniper rifle that can fire from a 2 mile distance, and you're given a choice. You can kill the next person to walk out of the nearest mall, OR, you can kill 5 drug addicts hanging around outside a crackhouse, OR you can kill 10 convicts who are in the yard at a nearby prison. What do you do?

    Kill the single mallrat
    Kill the 5 crackheads
    Kill the 10 criminals
    Pass on the power. The ends do not justify the means

    Your access to power just got greater. There is a devastating earthquake scheduled to hit a major city in El Salvador, and 100,000 people will be killed. You can save 50,000 of those lives. Again, all you have to do is kill people in your own city. You have a rocket launcher this time. 10 people at a nearby Starbucks, OR, 30 teenage gangbangers in a bad neighborhood, OR, 100 convicts being transported aboard a prison bus. You will not be caught. What do you do?

    Kill the 10 expresso drinkers
    Kill the 30 gangsters
    Kill the 100 criminials
    Pass on the power. The ends do not justify the means

    I just got a letter from a company I worked at over a year ago, stating they are "holding presumed unclaimed property dated 6/30/06. This unclaimed property is money, which may be owed to you" I have 6 days to claim it or they will be sending the money to the state as unclaimed property. It's $50, which I could really use right about now. I quit around that time, so it could be a final paycheck. But I'm pretty positive I picked up my final check. Should I claim the money? Even if it's their error, and I have to pay it back later?

    My fiance's skin does not react well to shaving. He's got a beard, but that under-the-chin area gets all red and bumpy and such. He's oily and acne prone, too.

    Right now he uses fusion blades and soap, which I'm sure isn't helping. What's the best (drug store available, plz) shaving stuff for men?

    While we're on the topic, what kind of body soap and shampoo do you use? I'm in the market for a new natural shampoo. I currently wash with dr. bronner's castille lavender soap, but I'm a little wary of putting that on my fried hair.

    Hey, I just thought of something, and it will be answered Saturday but I'm curious now, so:

    There's about 110 people coming to our wedding, wedding party excluded from that number, and we're having assigned seating during dinner.

    However, instead of making people wander for ten minutes to find their place card, how do you better organize it? Numbering tables? I have not been to a wedding with a seating chart since my sister's wedding, but I was a bridesmaid and thusly have no clue.

    We have to do an "interactive activity" with the class, like a game or something fun. Do you have any ideas??

    We're giving 1/4 of the class (representative of how many college kids nationwide have an STD) an index card with an STD written on it. The other 3/4 will have a blank card. Then we will discuss the symptoms/treatment of each STD while the people who are "infected" with it stand up. But we want to do a MORE interactive activity as well.

    So, I am twenty years old, and still living with my parents. I work, I don't pay rent, but I do contribute towards the bills and groceries.

    Now, here is my problem. My mother snoops an awful lot. I accidentally left my computer on one day (I am still kicking myself in the ass for that) and my mother snooped through it. She knows my 'real' LiveJournal username, and actually got mad at me because it was friends only. My boyfriend and I are trying to move in together, but New Jersey has horrendously high rent, and we both made some financial mistakes in the past, and we are waiting for those to clear up before we rush into anything. Here's the thing, though; my mother insists that as long as I am living in her house, she has every right to know every intricate detail about me, and I disagree. I work two jobs, I contribute to the bills, and help keep the house clean. I say that I am entitled to my privacy, as she is entitled to her own.

    Am I in the wrong here and should I just suck it up, or is she wrong? It is so frustrating that I have to safeguard nearly every aspect of my life, because she reads into things and comes up with insane assumptions and jumps into conclusions, so that is no help, as well.

    I used to read 2-3 books a week. And then I just stopped. I want to try to pick that habit up again by starting out reading at least 2-3 books a month, then maybe more. Last night I bought "No One Belongs Here More Than You" by Miranda July and I can't but it down. Next I'd like to read Charlie Chaplin's autobiography. I'll read just about anything, though I'm not too interested in sci-fi/fantasy or war books.

    If you take/have taken Effexor have you completely lost your appetite forever? Did it eventually come back after taking it for awhile?

    My doctor just switched me from Lexapro to Effexor. I've been taking it for 4 days and have had NO appetite whatsoever. On the patient pamphlet it says loss of appetite is a side effect but my stomach doesn't even growl anymore. I'm hoping this is just a short term side effect because I can't just NOT eat.

Her son, though, doesn't need help in those subject. Her son wants to get straight A's this semester. Since the student is already a B student, I was thinking that I would just teach him certain skills he would need to make himself become an A student

    TV shows

    I'm not a big TV watcher (in fact, I almost never turn on the TV unless there's something really specific I want to watch). However, I do have a few favorite shows: Battlestar Galactica, Firefly, and Six Feet Under come to mind first. Based on the shows I like, what other shows do you think I'd like? I love shows like South Park, Futurama and The Boondocks as well, if that helps to explain my sense of humor, but I'm preferably looking for something with a continuous plot.

    I ask because I am looking for new TV shows to get on DVD. The first season of The Boondocks that just came in the mail today is only going to last so long, after all!

    1. Today a guy ran a red light and made a left, whipping around two cars stopped at the light in front of him. A motorcyclist flipped me off for changing lanes when he was trying to squeeze in between me and the lane next to me. What's the most dangerous and/or stupid driving you've seen lately?

    2. I just cleaned out my cupboards and have two bags full of junk to throw out. How often do you clean out your kitchen cupboards?

    2. Who's watching Bones?  What is going on?  Why is this guy being called Mr. Ed?  Isn't Mr. Ed a horse?  Is this episode about furries, or is it just people who want to screw horses?

    3. Have you ever been sexually attracted to an animal?  (I recall someone saying to me a little while ago that there isn't enough bestiality wank in TQC)

    Do you think Sean Hannity is a rotten gaping cunt douche bag?
    Why or why not?
    -I DO!   So so many reasons...

    Maybe I will teach kids to hate Fox news and Sean Hannity in my book.

    This is dumb but I need help figuring out the name of something.

    Did you ever have braces?
    What age were you when you got them?
    How long did you have them?

    What are some names I can call my boy?
    He's getting braces tomorrow and all I have is "Brace face", "metal mouth" and "train tracks". I feel like there are so many more that I am missing.
    ETA:He's totally fine with it, he brought it up himself. So theres no worry about hurting his feelings, and I obviously won't call him name all the time.

    What can your mom do that you just can't?

    My mom: Clean any and all glass without a streak or a speck of dust. And then be able to spot a single speck on any glass in my condo, deciding to clean everything for me since I'm not quite up to standards.

    Do you have any blisters?
    Any under callouses?

    I have one on the ball of my foot (there are more, but this is the only troublesome one) underneath the callous. I have to walk all over campus tomorrow and there is a chance I'll spend 2:30 pm until maybe 11 pm either standing or walking.

    How can I make that not suck so bad?

    oh, internet.

    If you were getting to know someone on the internet, what's one thing that'd make you write them off instantly (if you were ever to do it)?

    I tend to be turned off of people who describe themselves with the bands they like (and only the bands they like), or if I get the feeling someone's an "elitist."

    How often do you listen to your mp3 player?

    Is "Across the Universe" good? I want to see it, but don't want to waste the money if it's bad :-\

    I bought a Zune about 6 months ago, and have only used it 3 or 4 times. I really don't have a use for one. No idea why I wasted the money.

    I have a pvr (like a tivo), and i'm extremely addicted to taping eeeeverything. there's at least one show a day. 
    Are you as addicted as I am? I'll tape something if the info even makes it sound slightly interesting.
    Do you like Rescue Me? How about the L Word? Who's your favorite character from either one?


    *edit* L Word watchers- Are you as annoyed by Kit's character as I am? Why does she annoy me so badly? I can't even stand her singing on the theme song. Kit= (Pam Grier)

    Are there any foods that you just recently started eating?

    Only within the past year have I started eating spicy things. Like things with jalapenos. And Korean food. I'm fricken addicted. The nice folks at the Korean restaurant even gave me a buy 10 meals get one free card.

    Speaking of Korean food, does anyone know what that spicy, sweet dark red sauce is called? It seems to be a condiment for everything, and is either similar or the same as the sauce that goes on the cylindrical rice cakes. It's not Vietnamese rooster sauce though.

    Why is Korean food so effin' delicious?

    Me and the fiance will be in Los Angeles next week for two days (yes I know it's not very long), what are the top must-do, must-see things to do?

    To be more specific:
    We're staying at Sunset Blvd at West Hollywood. We're thinking about walking down the Sunset Strip and walking down Hollywood's Walk of Fame, not sure what else.

    We're into museums, unique places to visit, local cuisine/culture, and outdoorsy/scenic places. We prefer cheap/free things to do. We're not really into the "movie star" thing (although we're going to the walk of fame just because it's nearby) and not into amusement parks.

    Also, we won't have a car, so how is the public transit there to go to places?

    1. How lame would it be to go to bed before 10pm two nights in a row?

    2. When did you last do laundry?

    3. Why is Kyan (from Queer Eye) so frickin' beautiful? Is this God's idea of fun? Haha, look what you can't have!

    Edit: 4. When you find bits of paper in the dryer after doing laundry, do you try and figure out what it was in case it was something important or just think, "Eh, it's ruined anyway," and just chuck it?


    Should I be a naughty witch or a naughty school girl for Halloween? The costumes cost about the same.

    Edited to add the question mark. Too much stress + too much caffeine = stoopid me.


    When snarking someone, do you immediately go to their user profile so you can use their age, location, education or whatever else they have on their profile against them, too?

    Flaming farts?!?

    Okay, so I don't find fart jokes funny. But.

    In one of my classes today there was a discussion about lighting farts on fire. We were trying to compare whether it was just a guy thing, or whether it was an everyone thing. Since I go to an all girls school, we couldn't really get adequate representation. So, I'm posting a poll.

    It's divided by guys/girls. (If you are trans-gendered answer how you identify.)

    Poll #1068825 Flaming farts??

    For GUYS: Have you ever lit/tried to light a fart on fire?

    I'm a girl.

    For GIRLS: Have you ever lit/tried to light a fart on fire?

    I'm a guy.

    Why did you do it?

    Seemed like a good idea at the time!
    It was a curious experiment, planned out with safety in mind.

    3. Do you think that substitute teaching for elementary and junior high schools would be a horrible job?

    what would you say is being insinuated when someone tells you (assuming you are a young female and the person is male) that you are stupid in a way that a lot of men would like to know about?

    Judging the character of the person who actually said this to me today I've tried not to let my mind wander to assumption but I just thought I'd see if the general consensus is that this is a perverse allusion as I assume it to be

    Dear TQC; why for is my toilet hissing at me?

    My toilet is making this weird hissing sound, even though it hasn't been used in a couple of hours. The hissing sound happens every couple of minutes and is annoying as all hayl.

    What the hayl is wrong with my toilet?
    Do you know a way for me to fix it?

    And lastly; I must ask what in the sam HILL is up with all the pumpkins and halloweey stuff in everyone normally not halloweeny themed icons? I am curious.

    So there's this song I've heard on the show The Hills. I like it a lot and I've tried to find it online, but no luck. It's the last song of the episode and it's played while Audrina and Justin Bobbie are leaving the beach and hop on his motorcycle. I know the first two lines go something like Incompatible, It don't matter though..." but thats all I know.

    Do you know what song it is? What's it called and who's it by?


    What does tl;dr mean?
