If you're interrupted in the middle of stretching, do you tense back up?

Why does my grandma have to be so god damn feely? I don't like being touched and every time she says anything to me she rubbing or poking my face and hair and shoulders and I get so worked up because I keep asking her to stop and she ignores me. It's driving me insane! Would it be bad if I smacked her hand when she keeps doing the touchy feely thing?

Sticky social point

A friend of mine at college recently gave me a piece of writing that she wants me to edit/beta for her. She also wants my opinion on it. This is normally fine, I am hideously opinionated.

So I started reading this story at home tonight and by the second paragraph, I was already shaking my head. My friend can't write. It reads like a Mary-Sue fic. Punctuation has been thrown in handfuls at it and where it stuck, it got left. Capitals are something that happen in the middle of sentences.

I don't know what to do. The punctuation and so on isn't so bad - easily fixable with a few rearranges of sentences. But for my opinion? What do I say? Do I reply "Darling, I love you, you have many talents but writing isn't one?" or do I just do the grammar and punctuation etc and try and avoid giving an actual opinion?

The problem is, I see this girl every couple of days. I can't avoid her for long.

Tell me, combined genius of thequestionclub, what should I do?

If I want to write about western patterns of social relations, is "western" capitalized or not? (Western, in this case, referring to parts of Europe and North America. For example, "Western religions are like this and (E)eastern religions are like this.")

Would it depend on the particular context? If so, which do you use when?

I've googled and seen both, sometimes both used in the same article, and am thoroughly confused.

Sorry if this has been asked recently . . .

I was using Hotmail; therefor, I've missed several days worth of replies to my comments. So, I've switched my email on file with LJ, but most of my comments are in various different communities, and I'd really REALLY like to find the missing messages.

Is there any way for me to find the replies to my comments that haven't been emailed to me?

As a side note, has anyone with an email through Care2 had problems receiving comments?

to the artsy folk:

1. what type of art do you create? music? paintings? sculptures? film? digital things?

2. what/who gets the creative juices flowing for you when you're in a creative slump? (can be anything: specific artist/author/musician/etc., place, thing, weather condition, material, emotion, event...anything. please share.)

Saturn SC2 2 door.. ding problems!?

Okay so I drive a '93 2 door Saturn SC2, and tonight it started having problems.

Once in a while when I take the key out, the ding noise continues. But I pop the key back in, take it out again, and it stops. Tonight after I took the key out the ding just continued. I messed with the headlights, the seatbelt, the heat, everything, but no matter what I did it just continued to ding.

I am sure that no one here is a mechanic, but if you have any suggestions as to 1, what it could be, 2, a solution to make it stop, or 3, just answer this- will the ding noise make my battery go dead? I would appreciate any help at all. I can't really wake my dad up to ask him what to do, it's 2 in the morning and he has work.

Am I going to wake up to a dead car?

What time do you get up in the morning? How long does it normally take you to get ready?

My roommate has made the joke before that you should always break up with a girl (or whatever your gender of preference is) in order to see what they are really like. His reasoning is that when you put a person in a bad situation, their true colors often show. Do you agree with this? Why or why not?

Speaking of roommates, I'm moving soon, and my roommates are giving me quite a bit of attitude about it. What's the best way to get through the next month without ending up in jail, or just ending up being a complete bitch to them and making things even worse?

Dear TQC,
My co-worker messed up [again]. His stupidity has left me with nothing to do. (No, really. He neglected to let anyone know that he was out of ink and at best, more will not be arriving until mid-day tomorrow.) Should I:
A) Hit him upside the head and then go home?
B) Yell at him, hit him upside the head, and then go home?
C) Just go home?

If I stay, I'll just be staring out the window til 4:30. (It isn't quite 10 AM yet.) (Oh, and I wouldn't be losing pay - I'm essentially salaried.)

On a similar note:

A man from Africa comes to the US. He attends and completes high school and receives his diploma. (You can also add that the county from which he receives this diploma is known for is excellence in academics.) A few years later, the man is accused of child rape by more than two little girls and also accused of various other sexual offenses by others. The state has enough evidence to go to trial on one case and so proceeds accordingly. The defense attorney requests a translator for this man - his particular dialect is a little known one. The courts do not locate an official African (his particular dialect) to English translator and so the man is released from custody and the case is dismissed. Hours after this decision is handed down, journalists [interview those from the local area where the man lived and will be coming back to live and] find two people who speak beautiful English and also the dialect of the man just dismissed from child rape cases.

1. Last Monday I came to school and found a couple posters advertising "Islamo-Facism awareness week" for Octover 21-28 with some pretty disturbing pictures on them (one was a picture of a woman being buried up to her shoulders by 4 men). The next day, they were gone. This morning I come to school and there are posters up everywhere saying "DIVERSITY! The Diversity Club asks everyone to respect each others differences. All posters should not be offensive or make others feel uncomfortable".

Dear TQC,

You are one of my friends. We are both commuter students, and you have a job that requires you to drive long distances (and doesn't pay for your gas.) We bitch about the price of gas daily. Would you be insulted if I gave you a gas card/Visa giftcard for Christmas, rather than an actual object, so you could fill up on me? The card would have enough for two tankfuls of gas, at $3/gallon for the medium-quality stuff.

(No, public transportation isn't an option. Otherwise, I'd buy us both bus passes.)


where do you live?

1.) Are there any popular misconceptions about your city/state/region/country that you'd like to clear up?
2.) Does it piss you off when people hold these ignorant opinions, or do you adopt more of a "fuck it, if they're dumb enough to believe it, at least it'll keep them from coming here" attitude?
3.) Are there any negative stereotypes about your town/state/area that are 100% true?

3. How can you fix the 'dying'/very slow feeling? If it's hard to get new members?
3.b Do you think if there were a comm where the active people concerned about their comms  or forums dying  would join and talk  about how to keep it active, it would improve things? Would a comm like that be good? edit: and cos I'm weird like that, I just created a comm for that. If you'd like a link to it, just ask!

New Orleans

The boyfriend & I are going on a short vacation trip to New Orleans Nov 15-18.

1. Have you been to New Orleans post-Katrina?

2. We're staying a street away from the French Quarter. It's not Mardi Gras or anything but will the French Quarter still be bustling and fun on the weekend?

3. Any suggestions on restaurants or places to see live music? Or sights that we MUST see while we're there? Anything you particularly loved?

4. Ever done a walking tour around the city? Worth it or not worth it?

We have a bunch of travel books and a running list of what we want to see while we're there, but I'd love people's personal experiences.

5. My mom thinks that we should do a bus tour of the areas that were hurt by Katrina. She think it would be interesting to see how badly the response was and what's going on in terms of rebuilding. I think that it might be kind of voyeuristic to go and take a tour of other people's tragedy...Thoughts? If you were going down would you go see it? I can't decide if it would be good to see or if people there would resent it..Does that make sense?

Lost installation CD, need help T_T

My mom was bitching about the scanner not working properly, so, like a dumb ass I figured and reinstall it before doing the smart thing and trying to fix the problem first. So, I uninstalled it and when I put in the installation CD it turned out that I only had the Macintosh when I needed Windows (I have XP). TT_TT

We can't find the CD and I think my sister must've lost it, and since she isn't speaking to anyone in our niche of the family, getting a definite from her isn't even an option.

Sooo... Since my little backstory is over and done with, here's the actual question:

How do I get a replacement CD? I've checked the company support page and even tried Google-ing it, but I'm getting more and more desperate and it's not helping my searching skills.

The printer/scanner/copier in question is HP Photosmart 3200 All-in-One and it was bought at least three years ago at my local Costco.

Any and all help is greatly appreciated.

They just came out and got cranky with ME because they were "burning up" and when I said I was cold, they did that typical thermostat-related-eye-roll that I run into all the time where people say, "But it's hot." Like I must be lying or a nutcase to disagree.

A Captain and his Crew maintain a wooden sailing ship in a dock in Boston. They sail around quite a bit, so it takes a lot of wear and tear. The boat is called the TQC Awesome Express. Every couple of months, a few wooden planks on the hull of the Awesome boat have to be replaced. Captain shippo, in an effort to cut corners so he has more money for hookers and/or blow, dumps the wooden beams in an alleyway behind the local In n' Out burger. cottonmanifesto and thatbitchfiona, after tasty lunch at the burger shop come across these planks and decide to take them and build a boat so that they might cross the seven seas. Eventually, shippo replaces all the planks the TQC Awesome Express and tosses them all behind the Burger shop, where cotton & mlle pick them all up. They have thus created a boat made of precisely the same materials as the TQC Awesome Express, but they name it the TQC Most Excellent Sloop. Is the Awesome Express the same boat it was before its planks were replaced, or would you consider the Most Excellent Sloop to be the Awesome Express?

Total dilemma

My department is hosting an "information session" from 12-1 tomorrow, which includes free pizza. I get out of class at 12:30 but the building is only a five-minute walk from class, and also since the professor of that class is in the department she may want to go to the session herself.

I'm graduating this semester and have no need to go to the information session since it's a course info session for next semester, but it might be fun to just hang out and get free pizza. But this weekend I went on a pizza-ordering spree and have basically been eating gourmet pizza three days in a row.

Should I go to get free crappy pizza or pay my usual $7.00 for good food?

1) Is there an LJ community I can go to to find out what a certain song is? I'd just ask here, but you all didn't know what I was talking about when I asked a while ago.

2) A friend of mine made fun of a Juggalo's Juggalohood (Juggaloness?) and he threatened to hit her for it. When she stood up and told him to go ahead and hit her, he didn't. Juggalos are whiny betches, y/n?

What is/was your favorite Goosebumps book?
Mine was probably either Say Cheese and Die or The Horror at Camp Jellyjam.

(This question may only be relevant for Americans who grew up in the 90's...my British boyfriend who grew up in the 80's has never heard of the book series.)

List of books here, in case you've forgotten the titles.

AVG Experts?

My virus scanner (AVG) is giving me problems. The icon in the systray is now black and grey and is telling me that the "Internal Virus Database" is out of date. No matter what I do to update it, nothing happens. It tells me it's updated, but it's really not. The computer has been restarted, and I've even tried uninstalling and reinstalling....


If you're not interested in that or can't help me, answer me this:

How old were you when you lost your LAST baby tooth?
I was 15 and they had to be pulled (my eye teeth).

So we're doing pictures for our senior superlatives tomorrow at school. It's up to the people who got the superlatives to decide what to do in the picture, for instance.

I got "Most Unique".

1. What should I do in my picture? (Yes, I realize that this is a very ironic question considering I'm "most unique"...I really can't think of anything to do, though. It's sad.)
2. Did you get any superlatives in high school? What were they? Did you have any special picture for it? Do you think you deserved the superlative you got?

There are two CDs I really want which come out tomorrow. I'd like to purchase both on iTunes, but I have to be up at 6:30, and I don't want to wait until midnight to download them. Is there any way to pay for the albums right now and just have my computer automatically download them in two and a half hours? They don't show up when I search for the artist/album titles.

I've heard of places that will hire you and accomidate you for a minimal fee off of your pay check (example: resorts, hotels, etc?)

Is there a name for businesses doing that? A "Business" word? I know, it's a weird question.

Also, Does anyone know if any that exist?

I have a Compaq CV735 with Windows 98.

It plays CDs, but everytime I try to play a DVD it says No valid drive/disc found! I know it is aware of the drive, because that's the drive I use to play CDs. So why will those work, but not DVDs? Can you help me fix it? Please?

ETA: It used to play DVDs, and IS DVD compatible.

Oh, and some extras.

Skittles or Starburst?
Ice Mountain or Dasani?
Rent or Moulin Rouge?
Skinny jeans or wide legs?
Piercings or tattoos?

After months and weeks of abuse at work, working tons of overtime, doing twice as much work as my boss, being screamed at, etc... I decided I had enough. I was going to quit, I want to quit.

But instead, I came in early for my boss, who took the day off, recieved a surprise shipment of 200 (ahhh!) boxes into our cell-like back room, stayed an hour over my scheduled time and even came BACK later for an hour to help close the store and open some of those 200 boxes.

Did you know that some transport trucks have a really bright light that faces backwards on the side of them so if you're passing them with your high-beams on they can flash it in your face?

I didn't know until 2 weeks ago when I was on my way home from school for the weekend. It scared the ever-loving shit out of me!
