I was looking for something for breakfast this morning, and it happened that I learned that
the only cereal we had was called Corn Flakes.

I find this so fucking funny

So what cereal do you have in your cupboard right now? ha :)

i'm reminiscing about certain people from my past.

will you tell me about someone from your past that you are no longer in contact with?

you don't have to say their name if you don't want to. be as specific as you'd like to be. whether it be an ex, or a best friend that moved away and you didn't keep in touch, an old co-worker, the bully that picked on you back in Algebra class.. WHOEVER. just tell me the story.

i knew i shouldve called in sick today

My license is set to expire this Sunday (Oct. 21) and stupid me, I procrastinated. I had plans to renew on Saturday morning, however, I was involved in a minor accident today (hardly any damage--broken taillight and that's really it--but besides the point) and recieved a ticket for 'improper lane usage' for being on the median, about half a block before the left turning lane began. I have a mandatory court date next month and my license is being held as bond.

I asked the officer about renewing and he said I should have no issue and would be able to get my new license before the court date (November 14), however, I figured that it wouldn't hurt to see if anyone else has been in this position before. Will I have problems renewing?

(I live in Chicago.)

I'll probably wind up calling the DMV tomorrow anyway, but I'd rather ask here first. You guys aren't nearly as scary as they are :D

My mom is diabetic, with high blood pressure and high cholesterol. Expectedly, she's having difficulty finding any foods she can eat which meet the dietary requirements for all three health problems.

She's very picky with vegetables, disliking a lot of textures. Any suggestions on what she could eat? I'm getting a bit frustrated trying to think of things, haha.

Which is the superior food, tacos or nachos?

Who are you thinking about right now?

Will you post a full body shot of yourself?

bad actors

dearest tqc:

i like keanu reeves and hayden christensen. i KNOW they are both really awful actors, and while i do think they are both attractive, i know they are really nothing special.

so why the hell do i like them? any ideas?

i can't figure it out.

are there any people that you have a weird crush-thing for but can't figure out why? will you tell me about it?

I can't sleep because god forbid I don't get terrible cramps every month

On the 15th of September I used my college's library for the first time to check out books for this speech I had to give. They were due on the 11th. That's fine, great, whatever. At 11:00 AM on the 11th I returned them by putting them in the drop box dealio. Great. But today I got an email asking me to return the two books that I already returned.

I already emailed the library. For anyone who has ever worked in a library, or just anyone who may know, what do you think happened? Did someone misplace them or something? Did the return box decide to eat them?  Frustration. I don't want to have to pay for books that I returned already.

ETA: Well, I called. They found the books and cleared me of any charges. Yay!

    My uterus is burning


Over a year ago, I had a very short (as in, I only saw him once) interaction with an adviser at a college I don't even attend anymore. Today, I got an email from his wife, trying to find employees for her tutoring business. She stated in the email that she got our addresses from her husband. She also didn't Bcc it to us all, so basically she made all of our email addresses available to 100 or so people.

I think it's completely inappropriate and unprofessional for her husband to use the email addresses that he had access to through his job as contacts for his wife's tutoring business.

So, TQC, should I email her back? Forward the email to the college he  works at? What should I say in the email if I respond to her, to let her know that it's not cool to use her husband's work contacts as a spamming list?

Guillermo Habacuc Vargas had 2 children catch this dog. He paid the kids for this. He then chained the dog and used the dog as “art”. He told everyone not to feed this dog. The dog died in the gallery. He calls himself an artist.

dear tqc: who is responsible for this dog's death; the artist who chained the dog up as an art exhibit or all the people that complied with the instruction to not feed the dog?

Poll #1074171 responsibility

who is responsible


was the exhibit "art"? if yes, does that make it ok?

eta: do you understand the statement he was trying to make?

cottonmanifesto adds:
According knew the dog died the next day for lack of food. During the inauguration knew that the dog was chased in the afternoon between the houses of aluminum and cardboard for a district of Managua with the name of a saint that Habakkuk could not say that at the time. 5 children of those who helped in the capture of 10 cordobas received bonuses for their cooperation. During the exhibition some people called for the release of the puppy, which he refuses artist. The dog's name was (was) Nativity, and he leaves starvation in the face of all, as if the death of a poor dog was a shameless media show in which nobody does nothing but applaud or look puzzled.

Definitely us what went: pure croquettes.

In the place that the dog was exposed only have a metal cable and a rope. The dog was extremely sick, renqueaba [limping] and did not want to eat anyway, so in a natural environment would have died anyway; But so are all the poor dogs: sooner or later die or die.

When it comes to wedding receptions, is it rude or tacky to make reservations at a nice restaurant (not anything too expensive or fancy, but still nice) and ask everyone to buy their own food/drinks as opposed to having a big reception where it costs about $100 a head for food, plus paying a DJ and all that? I'm looking to save money, and I want to know your opinions on this.

How do you get your deposit back for cans in Vermont? Can you bring them back to the store that sold them or is there a depot (pardon my French, I don't recall the English word) somewhere?

I'm wondering because I'm not from Vermont and want to know if it's worth it to keep these cans until my next visit or if I should just recycle them here.

FYI, they're Wal-Mart brand soda pop cans.

Rocky Horror Picture Show - should I go?

I have never seen the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Not the movie. Not with a live cast, nothing. I am 24.

Some of my friends are going to see a shadow cast perform it this weekend. In case you don't know, which you probably do but I didn't so I'll explain it... this means that the movie will be playing on the big screen the entire time, but there will also be live actors who are acting along with the movie at the same time. As well, there will be floorwalkers and the audience is generally expected to participate. My friends say that generally the audience yells certain lines along with the movie, but since I don't know the show I don't know the lines and therefore can just play along.

Anyway, the question - should I go? Would it be better for me to see the movie alone or with friends first (without the live cast)? Will I be completely lost at this event?

I will say up front that I don't mind sexual innuendo or foul language, which from what I can see on the internet is the biggest complaint about this movie - I am not easily offended, so I"m not worried about that. I'm just concerned that I will be lost and overwhelmed without prior knowledge of the movie.

My brother is a professional chef. So he's very concerned about USDA regulations, farm bills, etc. A farm bill was recently passed, and he had some questions about it, so he emailed the USDA contact page with his questions.

He also has a blog. An LJ (which he doesn't update anymore) and a new one on Blogger. He also has SiteMeter on his Blogger, which is one of those tracking things that will give you tons of info about your visitors.

In this letter to the USDA, he did not mention or allude to having a blog.

He checked his Sitemeter the other day, and found that the USDA office in Maryland had been on his new blog, referred from his LJ (where he put up a link to his new one.) There is no identifying information on his LJ.

He checked the Sitemeter again today, and the USDA had been on the new blog again, this one a direct link, and coming from the main USDA office in Washington DC.

My brother is really concerned about this, and has no idea a) how they found his blog or b) what he could have said in his email that would make them LOOK for his blog. Does anybody know what the deal is here? Is this a PATRIOT Act thing that he and I aren't familiar with? Why is the USDA stalking his blog?

ETA:: He put up a post asking about it after the first visit. After THAT one, the second one came from the big office. WTF gives?

Nude Art Models

I had a thought the other day: I thought that it would be fun to be a nude art model. Well, I don't actually want to be the nude art model, I just want to be able to say, "I am a nude art model." Actually, I don't even want that, it was just interesting to think about what people's reactions to that statement might be. So here are my questions:

Have you ever met a nude art model?

Did you know them very well?

Are you or were you a nude art model?


Returned Checks

Someone wrote me a bad check and it got returned. I got charged $47.50 ($40 is the amount of the check and $7.50 for the fee). That put my account in the negative.

Technically, who's responsible for the $30 overdraft fee?
Me (for not having a large amount of money in my account) or the bad check writer (for writing a bad check to a poor person)?

So my roommate left some chunks of onion and bell pepper in the sink, clogging the drain. 3 TIMES NOW I have fished the chunks out with a spoon and put them back in her dishes she left in the sink, and each time she dumps them back into the sink, as if they'll eventually go down the drain. No, throwing it away myself is not an option because it's her mess and I absolutely will not clean up after her.

Also, she's been going into my fridge and stealing my beer. I have cans of Tecate and bottles of Shiner and I wouldn't care if she took the Tecate but she's stolen 3 bottles of Shiner already. Didn't ask or even say 'BTW I drank some of your beer.'

I would really like to maintain the most open communication possible, so the more direct the better. I'm trying really hard not to be passive aggressive here, but when you put two random females together, it's kind of inevitable.

I'm pretty sure she's already left town for the weekend. Should I call her up now and explain that that shit isn't gonna go down the drain, no matter how long she leaves it there, and also tell her to stop stealing my beer? Or should I wait until possibly Monday to have this little talk? Or do you have any better ideas? I would really like to handle this in a tactful manner.

edit; So it turns out my memory is totally fucked and the shit in the sink was mine. Good thing I didn't actually say anything to her about it. I think this officially makes me a bitch.

movie ratings

Okay, because i'm strange, i've been thinking (and yes, it did hurt) about stuff and one of the things i thought was, if my life REALLY was a movie, and the spoiled japanese rich kids WERE REALLY watching me with their little wrist watch tellivisions... would their parents be very pleased.
okay, what i mean to say is, would my life be sutable for the little brats to watch, or would it be a case of their parents watch an episode and decide to complain to the company and force them to certificate it?

my REAL QUESTION here is if so, what would they certificate it as...

so, my questions to YOU, the random questions club, is

1)do you ever get the feeling of being watched when nobody's there? (and you AREN'T doing anything wrong!)
2)do you think your life would be a sutable tv show, for the whole family?
3)what would you certificate your life?

name that 80's movie?

I saw this movie once as a child and I'm stumped on the title. Everyone I've asked about the movie thinks I'm making it up. It's from the eighties, here's the plot:

There's this boy that lives on/by a beach (or island) and he finds a baby (tiger?) shark. It's very Flipper~esqu. He and the shark grow up with each other and are friends. Also, this kid can draw really good. He keeps drawing these pictures (in chronological order) of the same girl over and over, then one day he meets her and is all "You're the girl in my dreams/pictures." And she's says "OMG! You even drew a picture of me when I had that bad hair cut." And he's like, "You should meet my shark."

So tomorrow I have an appointment to talk to a tattoo artist about a design. I would like to have him draw it for me so that I will know exactly what it will look like but as this is my first tattoo I have a few questions.

-I am supposed to put down a $40 'deposit' for this appointment. Is this a deposit on the tattoo or just paying the artist for his time?

-Am I expected to tip him for this appointment?

-Do artists usually charge extra to draw a draft of the design for you?

-Should I tell him that this is my first tattoo? I am worried about being overcharged since I don't have a good idea of what a tattoo like this will cost.

-Is there anything else I should know to avoid looking like a total noob when I go in there tomorrow?

My ex-fiance, who came to visit me at work/eat lunch with me today and spends much of his free time hanging out with me (including/especially time when his girlfriend is at work), just texted me to say he's "grounded" (read: he's staying home tonight/we're not hanging out tonight) because he and his girlfriend are fighting.
TQC, why are they fighting?

I pu t in an application at Gamestop a few days ago and I want to know if I really have a chance, so i wanted to call maybe tomorrow about it. I know all these career education classes say you should call a job to show you're interested, but i've never actually done that before. So what should I say when I call? Should I stop by instead, or would that be too much?

Last night my friend couldn't find his wallet anywhere, we split up and looked all over for it and pretty much emptied his car. He ended up calling the cops and filling out a police report after throwing a fit for about 30 minutes where we thought he would end up smashing something, but then when we brought him home a few hours after the whole thing started, he found it underneath the floor mat. Should he tell the cops he found it? If this was you, how much would you have killed him?
I punched him in the arm and told him I'd sew his wallet to his leg so he wouldn't lose it again, I'm pretty used to his life being full of ~*dramaz*~.

Is anybody else watching "Most Haunted Live" on the Travel Channel? Even though I'm skeptical about it all, it's still spooky.

Do you believe in ghosts?

What do you think about ghost hunters?

saw it in a movie

Request for the first four questions: If you can, try to stick with one answer for each question.

1. You can only watch one movie for the rest of your life. You don't have to watch it on repeat or anything, but it is the only thing you can ever watch again. Which movie do you choose?

2. What movie makes you want to take a spork to your eyes or bash in your own skull because it was just that bad?

3. Which actor or actress, in your humble opinion, should retire immediately?

4. And which should finally be given the praise he or she deserves?

5. How do you feel about the amount of money people in the entertainment industry make?

What do my dorm neighbors not understand about "24 hour courtesy hours"? If I can hear you and I'm four rooms away, you are waaaaay too loud (at least this was my understanding of it). Actual "quiet hours" don't start until midnight (it's 11).

Why would you lease a car?

It doesn't seem any cheaper. You still need to make a down payment and pay hundreds of dollars a month.

When your lease is up you might have to pay mileage fees or damage fees. You get the option to buy the car but I'm sure it'll cost more than if you just bought it originally.

I've had a cellphone on my family's plan for about two years. I can now get an upgrade, which I guess just means I have to buy a new phone, I just get it cheaper, and have the same number and everything. I'm 17, and recently got a job. I have a few hundred dollars, so I can buy a phone anytime now.

1. Should I buy the more expensive phone with more features?

2. What kind of phone do you have?

3. Do you like the trendy phones like Razors (or however you spell it) and Chocolates?

Does anyone know the song that's on the advert for the new Kyle XY series?

my aunt has no job or money, she lives off of unemployment checks and stays with my grandfather. my uncle pays for her car and cell phone.

her car broke down tonight, so my mom (who makes the payments on my car) told my aunt that she could borrow my car until she gets hers fixed. my school is over 30 miles away, and i need the car to drive to school tomorrow. i won't have it back until at least sunday or monday. my mother didn't even tell me about this... i didn't realize anything had happened until i went to get into the car and it was gone.

how would you react if this happened to you?

eta: i know it's technically her car, but i wish she would have said something to me about it. i really wouldn't have had a problem with it, i can just have my boyfriend drive me to school. in my opinion, it was kind of a sly, bitchy move on her part.

A different type of pain medicine?

I went to the dr today and found out I have strep throat, yea for me! *end sacarsam* When I got home I managed to swallow the first does of antibiotic and the advil the dr recommended. However now the time has come and past for my second does of the pain reliever and I can NOT swallow it ... at all! I haven't been able to talk for 24 hours and well this morning it was excruitating to swallow when I tried so I haven't been trying very much. Now the pain is coming back, getting worse and worse, and I really want to take my pain reliever but my throat is too swolen to let me.

Does anyone know of any other ways to relieve the pain that don't involve me swallowing one of these small gelcaps? My throat is swollen and sore + my right ear is all pressurized and alL I want is some reliefe so i can sleep.

I want to dye my hair black and pink. My mom thinks it's a bad idea and isn't going to let me do it. I live with my grandma though.
So your personal thoughts about pink hair aside, how do I convince my grandma that I should be allowed to do whatever I want to my hair so she can convince my mom that I can do whatever I want to my hair?
And no, I can't convince my mom. In her eyes people aren't important and she doesn't have to listen to them.
