My boyfriend asked me this and I really can't answer it because honestly, I don't know. If taking a pregnancy test first thing in the more gives you a more accurate test because of the concentrated pregnancy hormone (I'm assuming from not going to the bathroom), then can you also get an accurate reading if you hold it in for a long time before taking the test?

Costume Ideas!

So I found out today that I'm invited to a Halloween Party on Saturday. However, I have no money to buy a costume.
Anyone wanna suggest a cheap, cute, possibly funny Halloween costume?

Bonus points if it's completely free.
years go by

I am so lame.

It's been a full three months since my boyfriend of two years broke up with me, and I'm still not over him at all, not even a little. Is this normal? I kind of feel like I've reached a point in time where I should be feeling at least a bit better, but I really don't. If the cutest and sweetest guy in the world asked me out on a date right now, I'd say no. I don't want anyone else.

What should I do, TQC? :(

How might I go about making a stencil of text? It has to be a specific font, I can't just use those cut-outs you can buy at Staples or whatever.

I'm really hoping that the answer isn't going to be "print it really huge and then use a craft knife to cut out the letters"

I'm not really interested in getting it screenprinted because I've googled the local businesses who do screenprinting and they all have a minimum order of at least five, but I just want one! So how do I do it myself? :)

Fleas

I found one flea on my couch. I have two indoor cats, so they didn't bring it in. My mother-in-law has outdoor cats and she said her basement has fleas where she keeps the cats when they come in even though she treats them. So we must have brought it or some over from there.

Should I freak out and like.. move my family out for a day and bug bomb my one bedroom apartment or what?

I guess I should probably treat my cats but that's probably expensive and I think a lot of treatments are kinda toxic. Aren't they? I saw web pages blasting Frontline and stuff. I have a baby I don't want to put something on the cats and then pet them and then pick up the baby.

quick scenario:

let's say your best friend was raped. she tells another friend (let's call her brenda) the next day. later that day, the two friends have an argument, out of your sight, which you hear about later. in the course of the argument, brenda tells your best friend, "i hope you get herpes." she fully means it.

how do you react to this?

Last night I put some chili in the crockpot. I had it simmer all night and turned it off to cool down, so I could put it in the fridge. Then I was going to bring some to work for lunch today.

Well, when I woke up, I realized I forgot to put it in the fridge. It was still pretty warm. Not hot where it would burn me, but when I took off the lid, some steam rose.

I promptly put it in the fridge, but I'm somewhat nervous to eat it.

Pumpkin Carving Contest Question

E.T. Pumpkin

We're thinking of creating this in our building pumpkin carving contest. It looks pretty straightforward, but there's one thing I don't understand. How did they make the neck/gourd stand up like that? The creators of the E.T. managed to run the gourd up through a hole in the neck of the torso pumpkin and balanced a third pumpkin on top of it, but what keeps the gourd from collapsing into the base of the torso pumpkin? Hollowed out pumpkins aren't very sturdy so I don't think they split the gourd in half and rested it on top, and in the picture, the gourd definitely looks like it's coming up through the torso pumpkin.

How do you think they did it?

Hunter S. Thompson Quote

I'm on the hunt for a quote that I saw in an obituary from the school newspaper yesterday. I meant to save it, but I forgot and now I can't find anything.

It's from Hunter S. Thompson and it's something about living life and taking chances. Something like that. My Google powers are giving me nothing.


EDIT
I found it through the help of a friend who located the newspaper.

I just tried to start my car and the key won't turn in the ignition.
I tried turning the wheel while turning the key, but then I discovered the steering wheel is also locked and I can't free it even with a lot of force.
I googled and the only other thing it said to do was rock the entire car. That isn't possible though, since I'm by myself.

Anyone have any ideas? I have to be at work soon.

let's do the babybop hop!

Hola! I work at a daycare and am mainly responsible for four babies ranging in age from 8 months to 1 year. During their nap time, I like to play some type of soothing music. Right now, it's mainly jazz -- but most of the cds are missing. The only cd I still have there is a Marvin Gaye cd and something just feels so wrong about playing that for babies.

SO, I decided that I'm going to make a few mix cds for the kids of soothing but good music. It doesn't really have to be a kid song because it's really just for the beat & the soothing noises. I can't have anything that would really wake them up or keep them to engaged so they don't fall asleep. I think I'm going to mainly go towards folk, jazz, reggae, etc.

What songs should I put on the nap time mix?
What songs should I put on a play time mix? Energetic, fun, danceable [for children] songs with no curses.

Let's say you own a house, and have a creepy, elderly, loner of a neighbor who lives by himself and lives in the house immediately adjacent to yours. One day, he knocks on your door and tells you a few things. You had sex with your SO that week, and he was outside your window, taping it. He has it on a dvd, which he has locked away in a PO box. He filmed you because he needs help and he had to coerce you. See, there's a body he needs to have moved and he's too old to move it himself, and if you help, it'll take place between your two properties and there's no need to fear being seen by any other neighbors when the body's being moved. In exchange for your help, he'll give the tape to you, and destroy all of his camera equipment so he can't do it again. If you don't help, he'll make copies of the sex tape and give them to every neighbor on your block, your parents and all your coworkers (he knows about your parents and your job). What do you do?

I'll help him move the body. There's no way I'd risk all those people seeing me having sex

Hello TQC. I need some movie recommendations. Can you recommend me a movie that meets my specifications?

I would like to know any movies that deal with 2 people in love, separated/waiting for each other. Classic movies, new in theatre movies, anything. They can be sort of fantasy/sci-fi-ish, like The Lake House or something more realistic, like one of them is in the military or sometime like that.

Any sort of movie where two people are in love or soul mates or something cheesy like that, and they are separated from each other by time or distance or a magic spell or whatever, and they have to wait for each other to be together again.

It can have a happy ending or a sad ending.

 1) My friend and I were talking about reusing towels vs. not reusing towels after your shower. I don't reuse mine because skin cells come off on the towel and I use conditioner in my hair which also comes off on the towel (I don't want to rub conditioner and skin cells all over my body the next time I use the towel, you see). She says she reuses hers because you're clean after you get out of the shower and it's "not like you're wiping out your wet asscrack with it".

a)  Do you reuse your towels or wash them after each use? Why or not not?

b) Do you wipe your wet ass crack out with it?

Halloween costume ideas?

I originally wasn't going to dress up this Halloween and just pass out candy to the little kids that came to our door (I'm 17) but my youth group is having a costume party on Sunday, so I figure I should get a costume. Does anyone have any ideas? Some guidelines:
- Nothing slutty (this is a youth group costume party, and, while we're not all prudes, it shouldn't be that revealing. Plus, I'm probably too fat to pull off anything slut-like)
- Nothing too bulky or hard to walk around in, as I'll be spending a lot of time in the costume.
- I don't have much time to do an uber-ambitious DIY costume, because the party is on Sunday, but if it's an easy idea, I'll go for it.
I could just cop-out and be a witch, because I probably have an old witch hat from a while ago, but I don't want to do that.

lupinlover's question reminded me that I wanted to ask this...

You've met someone who you get along with very well. They are nice, cute, have a wonderful sense of humor, like most of the same music you do, and are all around a great person. You like said person, and have been flirting with them for the past few weeks (and said person has indeed flirted back) and you are considering asking this person out.

However, you're the sort of person who doesn't do drugs, though you really don't have anything against drugs; they're just not for you. And the person that you're considering asking out freely admits to doing mushrooms and weed.

Would you still ask them out? Do you think if a relationship eventually started between you and this person, the drugs, over time, might start to become a problem because you share such different views on drug use?

 My teenage students seem to think that "where as though" is an expression, and one that makes them sound smart.

They use it both where they should use "whereas" or "wherein:" 
Romeo is a Montague, where as though Juilet is a Capulet.
or
Juliet devises a plan where as though she will take the poison to fake her own death.

I can't figure out where this came from.

1. Are you a teenager, and if so, do you use this expression? Do you think it is a legitimate expression?

2. Do you know teenagers who use this expression?

3. Do you think it is an age thing, a regional thing, or a race thing? (I have only ever taught black teenagers in Baltimore, so I don't know if other teenagers are going around saying this, too.)

So I know how much you guys just love answering computer questions....

Every so often my computer won't connect to the internet and I get a window that says "Local area connection: a network cable is unplugged." it will switch between that and "speed 100 Mbps acquiring network address" over and over.

I've tried replugging all the cables, restarting, using a different ethernet cable. It's not the router because another computer is using the same router just fine.
AVG turned up nothing.

I did notice that when I plug in the ethernet cable, the light in the plug doesn't constantly glow- it kind of flickers. Does that mean the port itself is bad and I need a new one?
If so, how easy would it be to replace with a step-by-step guide or something talking me through it?

ninth gate?

 Is "The Ninth Gate" (Johnny Depp) a good movie? It's next on the AMC scary movie marathon and my husband wants to know if we should bother watching it or if we should get wasted instead.

Thanks.

I have a jealousy issue. Sometimes I'll be jealous of my own friends, about what they have. I'm ashamed of my jealousy. Were you in a similar situation before? How did you deal with it? I really want to stop being jealous and be truly happy when someone tells me something that he is proud or even bragging about.

Dear TQC,
I so hope you can help me with my lame questions, that's been bothering me for years.
When I was in 7th grade history I read this paper about an young Native American girl who was taken hostage by a rival tribe. She was carried across some barren tundra by a member of said rival tribe, for the entirety of the walk. She grew up in the tribe that took her hostage and later married the man who had carried her the whole way. Does anyone know who this is? Or know this story at all?

My best friend is moving to Scotland in a few months to be with her fiancee.
I'm very happy for her, but at the same time I'm pretty sad because I'll be losing my best friend.
I mean, it's not like she's moving to a different town or state, but to a different country. Across an ocean.
I may not be able to see her for a long time, and only talk to her online.

Do you have a friend from your past that you've drifted away from that you still think about?
Do you still talk to your best friend from school [high school or college]?

Last Night on Grey's Anatomy...

Does anyone know the song that is playing in the background while Alex is behind curtain 3 kissing Ava?

If so, What is the name of it and who is singing it?

Can you post the lyrics or a link to the lyrics?

Thanks,

1)  kolden is full of shit about Milo Ventimiglia not being hot, right?

2) Let's say you go to a party and drink spiked punch. You didn't know it was spiked beforehand. Are you at fault legally? (Note:  I  You live in the U.S. and are under the legal drinking age for the sake of this question.)

3) I painted my finger and toe nails "Honeymoon Red". R THEY PRITTY?!!?1

 So my boyfriend went to the bar with his bestfriend. I can't go because I'm not 21 yet so I feel basically just left out and lonely. I'm invited to what is supposed to be an awesome halloween party about a half hour away from my house, but I'm afraid to go because
 A ) my bf would be mad that I went to some other guys' party 
B) it's raining really hard outside and I'm afraid to drive in it for a half hour
and C) I can't find anyone to go with me, and going to a party with other guys without my boyfriend might be somewhat of a bad idea...? 

Do I go or do I stay home to be completely bored and alone TQC?

Craptacular!

So far this week I have:

-stepped in glass three times
-gotten glass stuck in my hand
-lost my cellphone twice (once for an entire day)
-lost my hairbrush four times
-put an injured hand in detergent not once, not twice but thrice
-slipped on an excess amount of soap while cleaning, causing a gigantic bruise on my thigh
-dropped open-faced sandwiches that took me forever to make. Of course, they landed face down
-failed to make pancakes. I am always excellent at making pancakes, this time they all ended up scrambled pancakes.

On top of that I've been dealing with migraines since Monday.

So, tell me, am I cursed? Or being punished? Or is life trying to tell me something?
Does anyone else ever have weeks like this?
Does anyone know why?

HSC

Physical journey.

I'm in my final year at school in Australia, Year 12, HSC year. And our Advanced English "Area Of Study" is "The Physical Journey". Therefore I have an assessment based around this in which I need to think of one film that is based around a physical journey (that results in some kind of emotional/spiritual new awareness or something else reflective/deep like that) and one song that's lyrics revolve around some kind of physical journey. It's better if it has obstacles along the wayyyy. I've come up with a few but I'm trying to pick the best one to apply some sweet skills to...

So any ideas would be very very very appreciated. Like, times a million.

Thankyouuuu in advance.

If you could have ANY animal as a pet (let's say you have a big enough yard/tank/whatev to hold it and to allow it roam), what would you choose?

I WANT A BLUE WHALE CAUSE THEY ARE HUGE OR A TIGER CAUSE THEY ARE AWESOME.

Lindsay Lohan.
I think she is pretty cool and cute.
Just a little crazy, but that can be helped.

Am I the only one?

If anyone was wondering, I got a negative :) Thanks for all the help, I really appreciated it.

Why is Guild Wars loading so very very slowly for me? I started the game, went downstairs, made my dinner, finished it, and came back upstairs. the game was at about 31% :(

Is my internet clogged? Should I get the plunger? Everything else is loading almost instantly, but the game is loading so slow.

okay so my room is really messy.

how should i go about cleaning?

what are some of your favorite cleaning products, tqc?

i want to open the windows and let everything air out tomo, as it'll be sunny and kind of autumn-y out, but i'm worried about spiders and such. What's my best method of getting rid of them that will involve minimal contact?

when you do laundry, do you just toss it all in for the most part, and wash them all on the same cycle? if i were to do this, would there be any harm in running pretty much everything on a permanent press cycle, and just drying it? [by everything, i mean jeans, tshirts, dress pants, and sweat pants]

i have a chest of drawers with five drawers, and a dresser with two small drawers, four larger drawers, and another drawer. How would you organize them?

I am reading about the German activist Petra Kelly and although this is a long shot, for those of you familiar with her, what are your thoughts on her work and what shes done? do you consider her revolutionary? i find her very interesting.

tqc, what gives you a stomach ache?
for me it took a can of soda and a handful of peanut butter cups
which do you like more, instant mashed potatoes or the real thing?
who has no halloween plans?
I'm looking forward to winter/late fall and having less hours of day light. Anyone else enjoy the seasonal darkness? I love it.
would chocolate chips be good in a pumkin spice bread? before I try it out...

I live in front of the Canada/US border crossing. Literally right in front, I can see it from where I type. Earlier today, a car with Florida plates came across the bridge, parks in front of my house, and a guy hops out and takes a random photo. His daughter says, "I hear they allow drinking and driving here." He replies with, "I read they are ahead of us socially."

1. It's going to be impossible for me to get a PT job when I get back from school in mid-December, isn't it?

2. Have you ever done an internship/student teaching/something like that and had a PT job at the same time? Did it kill you? (I've done the school 5 days a week plus working thing and I was fine)

3. Do you have any allergies? What are they?

4. Why hasn't my friend called me even though she said she would?

my upstairs neighbors seem to take great enjoyment from jumping/stomping/bouncing basketballs/yelling/screaming/etc. constantly. right now someone is rhythmically jumping right over my head, loud enough that the baby monitor is picking it up and i'm scared that the ceiling is going to give out. this is not the first time this has happened. (i often question whether there are adults that live there at all, or if it's just 64783964873 school-aged children running amok.)

should i be a jerk and bang on the ceiling? would they even get what i meant if i did? should i wake my husband up to have him yell at them? should i just call the cops?

i cannot set them on fire, as they are right above me so i would also be on fire if i did that.

Have you ever accidentally run out of clean underwear? What did you do?
Yes. I'm wearing the bottom of my bathing suit.

Do you have any relatives that you love, but can't stand for more than about a day and a half?
Just my maternal grandma. She's absolutely batty.

Renaissance vs. Cartel/Copeland
If I go to the Ren Faire, it'll make up to my grandma for not going to her place for thanksgiving, b/c my 2 friends and I will be crashing there Friday night (she loves having more ppl to feed...she'd be thrilled that we were there). Not to mention all the awesome of a Renaissance Faire. It'll cost maybe $30 for everything, definitely not more. Also, it's about a 3hr trip each way (I'm not driving, a friend is).
I like Cartel and Copeland a lot, but probably not more than a Ren Faire. They're performing at my school, though, so I get free tickets, and it's within walking distance.
Which would you choose: Renaissance Faire or a live concert of Cartel w/ guest artist Copeland?

TQC, I'm taking the ACT tomorrow, for the second time. This is also my last time, no matter how bad I do...
I have to get at least a 21. Preferably higher so I won't be considered the stupid member of my family.
Last time I took it, I didn't study, sleep, was really hung over, and only a sophomore... I bombed it with a 20.
This time I'm not going to be hung over, I intend to sleep, I'm taking precal, and I studied.. kind of.
Do you have any tips/advice/words of encouragement? Please?
I do not test well. At all.
Right now I'm trying not to have a nervous breakdown.

Hi TQC -

2. I do, would you ever text me? (You can, I'm nice, I promise)
3. Do you have unlimited text messaging? (Yes)

Thanks for all the lovely texts! I ended up getting 23 :)

1) What's a good way to soothe irritation caused by hair removing cream? I have some Aloe Vera gel in my closet, would that do any good?

2) Why do women remove hair from their bodies anyway? (I'm not looking for answers like "it feels nice". If that were the only reason, more men would remove their hair too.)

3) Have any interesting hair removal stories for me?

Okay, so think of the radio station you usually listen to. I know you probably don't listen to it often because the radio usually sucks, but surely you listen to it every now and then. So this station you listen to every now and then, do they have like a contest of songs around 9 or 10 o'clock? If so, what is it called?

The station I listen to has a face-off between a couple of songs which they have dubbed "The Cock Fight."

Help TQC!

Quick! I need a female Halloween costume for a club party built around one of these three things:
1) a pimp medallion that says "BIG TIME CASH"
2) fishnets
3) a pink Lolita top
4) anything else you'd have around the dorm/house
