Why do some women use Halloween as an excuse to dress like prostitutes? I don't have so much of an issue with the hooker looks, it's just that most of the "costumes" are lingerie or little teeny dresses with like, a witch hat.

Song/Mixtape Tracklists

You're making a mix CD (or mixtape, if you prefer).
What songs would you include if the tape/CD were for:

1. Your mother?
2. Your lover/significant other?
3. Your sibling?
4. Your friend?
5. Someone you secretly hated? (I don't know why you're making something for 'em, you just are...)

Have you ever gotten such a compilation of songs?

Also, are there any songs that you wish someone would associate with you?

Have you ever purchased a museum membership? Why or why not?

Should I purchase a year at the High Museum of Art (Atlanta)? A one year membership is 60 dollars right now, and that's unlimited admission to the collection, special exhibitions, and Friday Jazz, plus discounts on tickets to the Atlanta Symphony Orchestra.

There are a couple of good exhibits coming up, including "Inspiring Impressionism" and year two of "Louvre Atlanta".

Am I wrong to mock a 55(ish)-year-old woman who, in perfectly legible cursive, spells the word "enough" as "anofe"?

ETA: I feel I should add, I didn't make fun of her to her face, or even that harshly. Something along the lines of "I weep for her third grade teacher" when I saw what she had written. She wasn't even in the building. So, I may be a spelling-elitist, but I'm not going to actually make her feel like shit over it. I'm not that big a jerk.

TQC, do you have a good pot pie recipe for me?

I had some chicken pot pie yesterday, I picked the chicken out. I have always ADORED chicken pot pie, even though I hate meat. I simply remove the chicken chunks and eat the veggies/gravy/crust happily. I really want to make a veggie pot pie that will taste like the pies I remember.

What can I do to make a veggie pot pie (I'd load it with peas, carrots, and corn. mmmm.) taste as close to chicken pot pie as possible? (no meat substitutes, yechh).

Sometime last year a lot of people in the GSA at my school participated in the Day of Silence.  A lot of them brought white boards with markers to write on when they needed to say something, but mostly they played hang man or drew pictures and stuff.  It was kind of annoying and I thought that the white boards kind of defeated the purpose of being silent.  I mean yeah, you need to communicate with people, but I think it made it seem like a joke.  Most people at my school had NO idea why they weren't talking because the GSA didn't do any advertisements/explanations before or after the day, and a lot of people made fun of the silent kids because they had no idea what it was about.  The GSA was disappointed in how few people participated in the Day of Silence.

1.  What are you opinions on the white boards?
2.  Do you think there should have been some posters or something telling what it was about?  I think if you wanted people to participate then you would have at least spread the word that it was happening.

The S/O just got a job offer to create a FPS video game for the next 3 years with 2 of the guys he graduated with. I am really excited for him, though I don't think I acted that way on the phone (I wasn't feeling too well yesterday, sinus pressure and congestion).

I'm trying to think of something to give him as a congratulations sort of thing, because I know that this is the big break he's been waiting for. I want to find something nerdily appropriate. Do you have any suggestions of nerdy gifts?

And before everyone does the typical "well you know him better than we do", I've only known him a little over a month so I don't really have a grasp on what he likes for gifts and whatnot yet. I'd just like suggestions in general for nerd/geek/gamer related gifts. kthxbai.

TQC nude party

1. There just happens to be a TQC gathering in your town, not far from where you live. However, on the invite, it says 'only newd people are allowed in. Don't bring clothes'. Would you attend?

2. If you did attend, you show up and there's a place outside the house where the party is, and you leave your clothes there. You're stark nekkid! You walk in, ready to mingle, and notice that among the many TQCers there, you're the only one nekkid. Turns out, latenightdrives altered just your invite so it said newd, and did it just for giggles. Would you mingle anyway or go get your duds?

3. Let's say it was a nekkid party and everybody's in their birthday suit. Would that perpetually alter the way that you see the people in this community? Would you be able to successfully keep your viewpoint at eye-level or is the temptation of so much cooter and peener too difficult to ignore?

Oh those crazy Greeks.

So, I'm reading this book ("The Worthy" by Will Clarke) and it centers around a fraternity and their naughty shenanigans. And I have a question!

Say two guys run into each other on the street. They're both members of a fraternity, say... Alpha Fido. Guy A is from Cool State and Guy B is from Cool State's rival school, Badass U. [Edit to add: The schools are big college football rivals. As in, football is srs bznss, huge thing.]

Would the two guys be friendly because they're both Alpha Fido brothers? Or would they be hatin' because they're from rival schools? WHERE DOES THE LOYALTY LIE?

I'm so frustrated.

Has anyone ever had any experience with "buddy-taping"? Specifically with toes? My 2nd to last toe is really messed up. I did something to it ages ago (broke it, sprained it, something.) It bends inwards (towards my big toe) and down, instead of straight up like my other toes.  Several people have told me to buddy-tape it until I can go into my doctor to have her look at it, now that it's randomly causing me pain and swelling up. However, taping my toe to my pinky toe is pretty damn hard and I'm not sure if I'm even doing it right.

So, anyone?

I am always obsessing about my weight and how badly I need to lose weight.
I am always dwelling on what food I can eat and what food I can't eat.
When I look at food I always calculate how many calories are in it, in my head.
If I eat one thing that's bad then I am fucked for the day. I completely blow the whole day of dieting thanks to that ONE cupcake I had.
I am overweight.
I'm 172 pounds and 5'4. I went from 192 to 161.5 but then gained weight back and now I'm at 172.
So I do have a reason to lose weight but it is always on my mind and completely takes over my thoughts.


Should I go to a therapist? My friends hear how I talk about myself and food, and my weight and they swear that I need help to stop obsessing over it.
Do you do this or am I completely weird and need help?

I ordered a brown top online and when it came today it was much darker brown than I expected. I like it, but I was planning to wear brown shoes it to a party on Friday. The shoes are a milk chocolaty brown and the top is a dark chocolaty brown, almost black. Will they clash? Unfortunately I'm thinking that they will. I'm not one to care if stuff clashes but in the "real world" I want to look fairy presentable.

My only other choices are a pair of BRIGHT plastic green heels that my grandmother owned in the '60s, a pair of light green sandals that make my feet bleed (literally), or black platform shoes.

I'm not going to buy anything new and I'm not going to wear a different top, so what should I do?

"You're just like you're mother!"

1. What's the last thing you did that made you realize you were turning into your parents?

So there's these two like 13 year old boys across the street from my house making a ton of noise and doing somethig sketchy with a piece of wood. (I live across from an elementary school with a playground, but the school is shut down and going to be torn down probably within the next year.) I was standing in my window thinking "If they don't shut up, I'm going to call the police."  I got ready to yell that out the window when I stopped and realized.  That's exactly what my parents do.  They scream out the house to be quiet and then if they don't listen, they call the police number.  I cried a little on the inside when I thought that.

So I am finally just selling all my stuff this weekend in a subdivision wide garage sale. It's just taking up space and I can use the money to help finish up paying back taxes. I have a couch, china (Mikasa really cool pattern), farberware, blender, coffee maker, toaster oven, a really cool chair that I really would like to keep but I need the money more. Problem is I am not a garage sale person so I don't know how to mark the stuff. Everything is like new, but has been in storage for exactly 4 years this week.

Any idea on what I should sell the stuff for?

 the other night when I was at my friend's house, she recieved a text message from her own phone that she did not send. the "name" thing came up as "My Mobile" and the number was checked and was definatley hers. and no one else could have stolen her phone and done it either because she had no credit left. the message simply said, "what are you doing?" and it creeped us out real good. does anyone know how this could have happened?

Questions about The Sims 2

1. I have the PS2 version of The Sims 2 - what do I have to do to gain logic for my Sim? Stupid q, but I can't figure it out.

2. (About the PC version) How do the expansion packs work? Do I have to get the main game and add it on?

3. (Not related to The Sims 2) What's your favourite TV show at the minute?

Student Loans

 

 TQC, 

My university has a Study Abroad program, which every summer they offer a trip to Cuernavaca, Mexico.

I was all hyped up to go, as this is my only opportunity to both finish my Spanish and go to Mexico before I graduate. However, now, they're planning on going to Salmanca, Spain, which is approximatley $1,500 more.

Do you know of any good student loan programs with low interest rates? 

Edit: I had HTML wrong, and I also wanted to mention that although I was hyped up to go to Mexico and I won't be now, I still want to go on this Study Abroad program, and I still feel like I will benefit from the experience. I just realize now that it'll be a lot harder to save the money, so I'm looking for resources. 

Thanks for all your help!

 What disappointed you today?

I missed school thinking I was going to DISNEYLAND!  But, because my sister's friend was passed out we didn't get the free tickets.  Instead we went to the animal shelter to look for a dog, but didn't get one.  We went in the room for dogs who were being "evaluated" tonight.  I WANT TO CRY.

Sooooooooo how difficult will it be for me to get into the video game biz (as a 2D concept artist)? If you don't know (which you don't really because you don't know bout my skillz) take a guess. :]

Also how are you and what are you doing tonight?

(no subject)

I'm home alone tonight and very lonely/bored. The only thing keeping me company is my rumbling stomach. Unfortunately, my fridge/cupboard is practically empty and I'm clueless as to what I want. Do you have any simple, delicious ideas for what I should make for dinner tonight?

DISCLAIMER: This is not something I necessarily agree with

Let's say you obtained proof that the George Bush Administration was responsible for 9/11, and that they orchestrated the entire event for their political gain to pave way for the Iraqi War.

It would be a terrible event for America, and would severely harm us as a nation.. Would you turn them in?

books

i tend to be really picky when it comes to books. my favorite ones always tend to be the same type: the author or narrator talking about their life or their really mundane thoughts in detail..and basically that's it.

some of my favorites include:

running with scissors by augusten burroughs
the catcher in the rye by jd salinger
wasted by marya hornbacher
the girl's guide to hunting and fishing by melissa bank
angela's ashes by frank mccourt
sex, drugs and cocoa puffs by chuck klosterman
choke by chuck palahniuk


i just finished reading dry by augusten burroughs, which i loved.
what book would you suggest, given my taste..and briefly, what's it about?

For those playing online games:


Is Eve Online a decent game to play? It seems interesting but I want to be sure it's something I want to pay for before I try it...


ETA: Do you know any other online games which are similar as EVE in setting? I like space/sci-fi games

Yeah so this post is brought on by an argument I had with my friend.
Regardless of what the law says, If a 24 year old guy has consensual sex with a 16 year old girl do you consider it rape and/or morally wrong?
And whats the biggest age difference you've ever had in a relationship? and how old were both of you?
