What do you collect?


I collect pewter dragon figurines and signed Sabres hockey cards.


Asked recently, I see.


Instead... did you watch Monday's Sabres/Leafs game? Oh man.
If you did, would you like to discuss it with me?

1. Have you or anyone you know been known to moan a lot in your sleep? I don't know why, but I do, and sometimes loudly (to the point where I woke myself up). It's not sexual-sounding moaning, more like "I'm really comfy" moaning.

2. Do you have any weird sleeping habits?

MUFFINS

Should i increase/decrease the amount of water?

For those of you who have had laser eye surgery, will you tell me about your experience in detail?  I wanted so badly to have it done until my friend told me that they CUT your eye.  This completely squicks me out and now I don't want to go through with it.  Are there any methods that don't involve cutting?

1) Do air mattresses make suitable beds? If so, what brand doust thou recommend? (Please don't get on me for my crappy, fake Old English. I am aware that it's fake and crappy.)

2) What's the most hurtful thing you've ever said to someone?

3) The other day while giving me a lift home my sister kicked my ass out of her car about a mile away from my destination in the rain because she got mad at me. I was in a terrible mood, having a terrible day, and feeling like everyone hated me, etc. So, I indulged in a "I'm going to run away" fantasy. My 'plan' was to pack up a bag with a few clothes, food, and all my money (currently $56 dollars), and start walking/hitch hiking across the states as one of those backpacker people to Alabama.

Yes, I want to run away to Alabama. It was (in my mind) either that or Canada. I don't have a passport so I figured Canada was out. Anyway.

3a) Do you ever or have you ever allowed yourself to imagine a 'run away from home' plan? If so, what did the plan (or plans) consist of?
3b) How would you do my plan differently?

4) Why is it when teenagers complain about having had a terrible day, people often respond without sympathy? It seems that people assume you must be whining about your parents making you help out with chores or not extending your curfew...It's as if they can't fathom a young person actually having any "real" problems.

5) Speaking of parents and kids: Why do people use the "your parents put clothes on your back and food in your mouth, a roof over your head" line? This guilt trip does not make any sense to me. They're basically saying, "Your mom and/or dad chose to bring you into this world and then didn't allow you to become homeless, didn't make you run around naked, and didn't let you starve to death. Thus they deserve mega props." 

6) I function best in chaos, difficult times, and when I'm taking care of someone else. I feel like I unintentionally act like a complete asshole when things are going well. WTF is this about?

7) If I asked you "how are you", what would you say? If you told me the absolute truth about how you are, what would you say?

Daylight Savings Time

I just noticed in my calendar that Daylight Savings Time is ending a few weekends from now.  As an Indiana native, I did not grow up with DST and, even though it's been a few years since we started doing the change, it confuses me.  I understand the principle of it, but the practical application just doesn't make sense in my little brain.  Tell me, oh wise TQC:

In whatiworetoday someone posted about the clothes they got at a free thrift store for the homeless and the snazzy outfits they put together. What do you think about this?

I, personally, don't think it's right to take what is meant for homeless people if you're not homeless. This is free clothes for people who need them, who can't even afford to pay for a shirt from a regular thrift or The Sal. Maybe I'm in a bad mood but to me it's the equivalent of hitting up a soup kitchen for a free meal or getting your weekly groceries from a food pantry because hey, free shit.

Ho-hum, standing in the bathroom, starting your day. You're brushing your teeth. Put toothpaste on the brush... run a little water over it... start brushing.

Turn water off?
Leave water on?


I swear it seems I'm the only person who was taught it's incredibly wasteful to leave it running, usually at full blast, when you're not using it. I live in a dormitory, bathroom has a row of 8 or so sinks, and I know some morning I'm going to sleepily reach over and turn someone else's tap off.

Does anyone know if there are noise requirements for construction going on in an apartment complex? I tried to Google, and found that construction can only take place from 7AM to 7PM but nothing really about noise. This document states that residential noise cannot exceed 60dB, that's all I found.

The construction is literally right by my doors and windows, they are redoing the pathways. I recognize that it needs to be done but I don't have a typical 9-5 job so my time to sleep ranges from early mornings to noon-ish.

They're using jackhammers which Google comes up with 90dB - 120dB and hammering which is shaking my entire complex.

Ideally I'd like to just talk to management and ask them if they could start construction later in the day, but they would probably just laugh in my face or give me an excuse on why they need to start so early.

Any ideas?

My boyfriend of 8 years has apparently decided recently that masturbating and then ejaculating all over the floor and leaving it is totally fine.

I didn't know about until I happened to sit down in a chair in our bedroom yesterday and the carpet was crusty.  GROSS!

I called him on it and he got all defensive and at one point said "It's just in our bedroom!"

He says he does it and then goes and takes a shower and "forgets about it".  I say that's bullshit because he shouldn't be doing it in the first place (creaming all over the floor, not the masturbating part).  I told him to just wait and do it in the shower if he feels the need to paint a picture with his ejaculate.

Basically, I think it's fucking disgusting and he thinks I'm overreacting.  I did eventually get him to scrub the carpet, but I'm still all icked out by it.  I feel like I'm housebreaking a puppy.

So guys and gals of TQC, am I overreacting?

1b- Would you follow this advice? Why (not)?
2- Do you expect to be rewarded when you do something good? If so, how do you react when no one throws you a party for passing a test or something? :P
3- How often is too often for parents to be visiting their child who is long out of the nest, long out of school, long out of the city... etc etc?

Catch 22 - I need as much help as possible -_-

In regards to putting someone in jail... would you take the route in which you'd end up putting yourself through tons pain just to get them a longer sentence (with the possibility that they may even be found innocent and get off Scott-Free), or agree to a lower considerably sentence, and having it be a sure thing?

Meanwhile, you’ve been activity pursuing this since 2003. If you did go with the second choice, would you feel like all your effort up until this point would be in vain? Do you think you might regret it later

P.S And if it makes a difference, the person you're putting in jail is being charged with manufactoring and distributing child pornography

Megabeyatch.

So TQC, my best friend's new girlfriend just told me that on her trip away (he stayed behind) she was doing strip teases for the guys she went with and licking whipped cream off of them as well. She also said that one of the guys she did it for has a HUGE crush on her.

I think she is a bitch for doing it, but she has just moved over from Denmark and says that if this sort of thing happened in Denmark, it'd be totally cool with everyone. FYI, we are now in Australia, she is 16 and he and I are 18.

So, should I tell him? Either way, its shitty for me. Arrgh.

A bit of TMI questioning.

Dear TQC, I was wondering if you could enlighten as to a long-pondered point: How are faeces & urine separated?

That is, what decides 'this will be pee, and that will be shit'? Because faeces contains liquid too (particulary after six too many bowls of chilli).

& why doesn't everything just come out your anus? I'd much prefer that. Keep waste away from my fun-parts.

Copiers

I don't suppose there's any office equipment related communities on LJ, lol

Our office copier, a Xerox Workcenter XD130df, isn't working and can be repaired for ~$200. It has multiple page autofeed, can print on both sides of the paper... Looking online, it looks like other desktop copiers that do the same thing can be bought for $400/500, and my boss figures if fixing it is going to cost half as much as a new one, might as well buy a new one. The original Xerox cost $1500. The $400/500 ones are mostly Canons or Sharps. What makes the Xerox one cost so much more?? Is it any indication of the quality of the product?

I found a worm in a can of tomatoes. It was yellow with a sort of stripey body, brown head, and pointy little legs. About an inch long. This was after I had made tomato sauce with half the can and was transferring the remaining tomatoes into a container to save. I opted not to eat the tomato sauce because of the gross-out factor, but I'm wondering...

- What kind of a worm was this? It looked more or less like a mealworm but smaller and skinnier.
- What would have happened to me if I'd eaten it? I.e., are there risks when it comes to eating things with worms in them?

I ordered a pair of Gumy earbuds off eBay that shipped today - can I go around for the remainder of the week with big headphones on, or will people think I'm a prick?

2. I like to take famous quotes and put them on my dry erase board outside my door and put a blank inside the quote to let peple fill it in (eg: "To ____ or not to ____, that is the question"). I've run out of quotes, though. Got a good suggestion? Anything with innundo is dandy.

It's not paid, obviously, as I'd just be a servant leader coordinator. I'm wearing jeans, birkenstocks and a gi'raffe paper shirt from threadless. Should I bother changing?

4. You're grown up, I assume. Do you own a webkin? Do you have any desire to own a webkin? What about just the soft toy component?

Every time I see someone on the street and ask them, I always get the 'Oh, I bought these 4 years ago!' DAMN!

3 weeks ago i had a blood test, and my inner-elbow was sore and had a bruise for several days after.
I had another blood test yesterday (taken from left arm this time), and you can't even see where the needle went in anymore, and there's no soreness at all.

Is this difference because my right arm is fucky and my left arm is awesome, or because lab tech girl #1 can't draw blood for shit and lab tech girl #2 was born to stick needles in people?

What should I do tonight?

I skipped my night class to stay home with my son while my husband went to a wake...

So...after he gets home how should I fill my time?

Should I stay home and study for my Operating Systems midterm that I have tomorrow?
Should I go hang out with my friends, like I usually do after class on Wednesdays and say to hell with studying?
Or should I be a nerd and take my book with me and study while I'm with my friends?

Say you spend the night with someone i their hotel room. In the morning they have to leave before you do but they tell you to stay as long as you want and "chill, do whatever" because they've paid the room up until the following morning. Is room service also implied to be okay to order (and have charged to them) in this situation or would it be wrong to order anything and take from the mini bar in this situation?

(no subject)

wow its like magic! if you post something slightly offensive you get like a million comments.
clearly i didnt go anywhere. i wanted to see if it would work if i didnt say anything at all and it totally did.

(no subject)

Online Schools for Business

My husband wants to look into getting a bachelors in business. However, his schedule is not really condusive to traditional schooling, even part time. He was thinking an online school might be a good way to go since he could do it at 4 in the morning, if need be (and it just might on some days). However, we know next to nothing about this sort of thing and a Google search only causes us more confusion...

Can anyone here offer some advice, be it for better searching or actual recommendations of specific schools? We live in Atlanta GA, if it matters. Thanks everyone! :)

ring question.

I'm stupid when it comes to ring sizing - I believe I wear a 7 1/8 - the place I'm ordering from only does half sizes - if I want to order one online, should I order it too big or too small? As in, which is easier for a jeweler to resize - up or down?

Do I make sense?

Ever color your hair for just one day? What product did you use?

I'm looking to dye it white (with one black streak) for Halloween. I also have to scrunch it all curly and such.

1. Is there ANY WAY to prevent blushing? I know it's a lame question...I'm almost sure there isn't a way for that. But it's just that I bush REALLY REALLY easily for EVERYTHING! And it sucks! You know? Because I talk to someone I like, I blush. A cute guy talks to me, I blush. I laugh, I blush. I talk in front of people, I get nervous, and I blush!! I really hate it...but I don't know, maybe there's a way I can make it less noticeable?

2. Do you think people are born with a fixed sexuality? Or do you think it can change?

3. Which tv series are you currently watching?
Redmeat

The foreign language club at my college is in need of an idea for what to raffle for our fundraising project.

What do you think we should raffle?

Chlor Trimeton, have you taken it?

My allergies are going ridiculous because of the ever changing weather up here, and my nose has been stuffed up beyond belief.

I'm allergic to some ingredient in Claritin (it made me break out in a rash), and I usually use Flonase (but since I am currently without health insurance and one vial of Flonase is about $75 for generic, I can't afford that), but since I'm out, my Dr told me to try Chlor Trimeton.

My mother got some for me, but got me the 4-hour ones, which is fine until I can get to the store this weekend and get the 12 hour (or 24 hour if they make them) ones.

My question is; has anyone ever taken this before? My doctor said it would be good, I'd just like to know if it'll make me drowsy or anything.

I'm looking for a part time job, so I checked out Craigslist to see if anything looked promising. So far, the only responses I've gotten back are for jobs that say they charge a one time fee of 10 to 20 dollars, to "make sure only serious applicants apply." Those are pretty much guaranteed scams, right?

Sigh, I need money.

And I was reading an article about how more parents are not having their kids get vaccines lately, and I'm wondering about one in particular. I'm all for vaccinations, we don't want kids getting the mumps and what have you, but a shot for chicken pox? I'm only 22 and I am quite sure I just got the chicken pox like all the other kids when I was like 7, I stayed home for a week and my sister had it at the same time, we got better, life went on. What's the point of getting that particular vaccine?

I finally got to watch the interview on Oprah with Bill Cosby. For those of you that saw it or heard of his highly controversial speech, what do you think? Does he make good points?

Also - do you think that successful minority individuals are prejudice against their own race?
(Think Oprah, Cosby, Obama, etc)...

For a transcript of Cosby's speech, look here.

Otherwise just Google "cosby speech" for articles about it.

I  was watching a video on youtube and read through some of the comments and came upon this:

please don't read...

realy hate thes everyone im sooooooooory

SO SORRY

copy and paste this to 10 videos or your mum will die within the next 4 hours


Why do people actually post these things if they hate them so much or think they're stupid?
If a friend keeps posting these things, do you tell them it's stupid/to knock it off/whatever?

Hey TQC: I'm getting a haircut tomorrow and I want to do something different with it. Any suggestions?

Collapse )

I'm not sure exactly what I want. I mostly just hate how it lies flat around my face right now. I'd like to keep the length, but I'm not sure what my options are with it.

When was the last time you had a haircut? Was it a drastic change?

My computer is not recognizing my new digital camera at all. What could possibly be wrong? I even installed the software (after trying first before installing it) and then afterwards it said that my hardware may not work correctly because it couldn't find the software to install! But it did install the software. I am sad. :( How come electronic appliances never work for me?

Have I told you that I love you, dear TQC?

I've got a bad cough right now, remnants from a bad cold. I'm afraid it'll be disruptive during a test tomorrow. Have you made any funny bodily noises anytime it was dead silent and around other people?

Have you tried introducing or explaining LOLcats or "I can has cheezburger?" to people who do not frequent the interwebz?

Does anyone say "information highway" anymore?
