Tell me your life story?

If not, how old were you when you had your first cigarette? And how did it happen?

Edit; Also, have you ever seen The Fantastic Planet? If so, thoughts on it? I think it's creepy as hell.

Hey TQC: I am a young female. What should I wear to a group job interview at Bath at Body Works at my local mall? I do not have access to a suit, as I am 19, poor, and a biology student. Most of the work I've done before involved getting dusty with old plant specimens.. And I didn't have to interview for that.

Any tips for me, since this will hopefully be my first retail job?

What was the worst retail job experience you've ever had?

What movie(s) changed your life? Why, and what did it change?

Also, have any of you been in a long-distance relationship before having met the person? If so, what was it like when you met? Was it comfortable and you picked up from where you left off, or did it seem like you had to get to re-know each other? My girlfriend is visiting in eighteen days, and I'm so nervous and excited!
MOM.

My dearest TQC,

Do you like Hillary Clinton? Not in the voting sense, but as an actual person?
I can take her or leave her. She kind of bugs me.

I am going trick or treating with my best friend and her little brother (he's 2) tomorrow. Since I am poor, I am going to be a pregnant cat. The usual all black, ears, a tail, and of course my pregnant belly. BUT! I don't want to do the usual boring face of just using eyeliner to draw on whiskers and a nose. Do you know any websites with like, Halloween makeup tutorial/pictures/ideas? Have you ever been a cat for Halloween? If so, do you have pictures?

What is aggravating you at this exact moment?
I am eating donuts, but they're all crumbly so they're extra hard to eat.


Do follow the fashions for the season? For example, do you start painting your nails browns instead of pinks when Fall comes around? Or start wearing burnt orange, yellows, browns, and greens?
I don't really go by season, I like to wear Fall colors all of the time.

I am applying to grad schools in the next month and I have a quick question.

If the school requires two or three letters of recommendation, and I have four, should I only send the required number or will it not hurt to send all the ones I have? They are all excellent letters of recommendation so I'd really like to send all of them, if that wouldn't hurt my chances of getting accepted.

ETA: I might be moving to Phoenix this summer if I get accepted into my first-choice school. ANY PHOENICIANS OUT THERE WANNA BE MY NEW BFF ROSE? WE CAN GET ICE CREAM AND WATCH SCARY MOVIES TILL 3AM!

How do I clean white canvas type shoes? I have some Puma slipons that need some desperate cleaning. :(:(

What's a good reason for not coming to class other than a doctors appointment?
I'm really going to celebrate world vegan day with some friends.

This is THE most boring class ever, seriously. We generally get a turn-up of 5 people out of 55, yet I turn up nearly every lesson because I'm polite (and because I feel sorry for the lecturer because it's his last semester - he's retiring- and he knows he's boring but he doesn't know how to fix it).

Will you tell me of your boring class experiences?

Costume help

I'm sure you're all sick of the costume questions, but you'll get just the one from me I promise.

We're going to a Halloween party tonight and for my costume I have one comfy pair of hospital scrubs from my time as a CNA. I'm debating whether or not I should leave them as they are and go as a gynecologist (it's a gay bar, I thought this might be funny) or splatter them with blood and go as an insane doctor/nurse/whatever.

Which do you think I should do?

Money, money, moooney, ....mooooneeey

I live in a dorm and had over $80 stolen out of my room.   The perpetrator is either picking my lock or has a spare key because I'm pretty adamant about locking my door everytime I leave the room.

I've filed reports and asked to have my locked changed.

Should I ask for reimbursement from the school?

*edit*
The dorm I'm living in has specific person in mind that constantly asks for things and thinks she stole it. We're trying to get her kicked out very soon.

I'm just wondering since residence life has a good idea of who is stealing things that they would believe me.

Also, I don't have a roommate.

costume dilemma!

So hokay. Today is Halloween, and since I left all my shopping to the very last minute, I was unable to get a proper(ly fitting costume). The only reason I got one was for work, now, the costume I ended up buying is this: http://www.amazingpartystore.com/pages/ru_15360_downstairsmaid.htm. I work at a library, and will be wearing leggings underneath the costume. My problem is that I'm slightly wider in the chest (read: a lot) than the girl pictured so the costume rode up quite a lot. A few questions:

Is this inappropriate?
Should I try to find a back-up?
My co-workers already know I'll be dressing up, should I maybe just not botherrr?

If it helps - I'm 19y.o. and I'll be shelving books all day in the kids' section.

THANKS TQC!

and for fun: can tell me about your best OR worst halloween experiences, please?

Order Picker

I have an interview for a General Labour job, I am pretty experienced as that. That also asked if I had Order Picker exterience, I said no. They said they are willing to train for that, so not to worry. I have an interview at 3PM EST.

Am I right?
Does anyone know what it is exactly?

Helping Out With Financial Aid

Here's a question that's emerged in light of post-secondary education, and funding. Say there's a program, a completely voluntary program aimed at financing tuition (and perhaps other) costs for students that may need a bit of aid. Families, companies, literally anyone is encouraged to donate an amount of their choice to be distributed among qualifying students. Contributions need not be constant because of course financial problems come in every now and then, and so the obligation would in no way become a requirement. Distribution of funds will not be based upon merit, but need.

I was thinking of whether there should be an organization that specializes specifically on collecting funds from people who just want to contribute. In this way, more could play a part in helping out.

My question is, should there be a program as the aforementioned, at least as another means of aiding students? Would you participate in it, had you the choice? Are there already similar existing programs that reflect this purpose? And would this be appropriate?

Poll #1080676 Monkeys, sex, and you

In some bizarre raffle you don't remember entering, you win the services of a helper monkey for an entire year! Woohoo! What things do you make it do?

In an even more bizarre twist, the monkey you're assigned is a Bonobo helper monkey. In light of this new development, what additional duties or chores do you have the monkey do?

A multi-millionaire takes an interest in you and his/her lawyer comes to you with a deal. If you agree to have sex with the millionaire once and only one time per month for the next 5 years, you will be awarded a steady monthly income of $8,000 (close to 100k a year). The millionare chooses what day of the month the deed happens, and if you breach the arrangement in any way, he/she will take you to court for breach of contract. The millionaire is in his/her 60s and not particularly attractive. So, bottom line, for 500k, would you be willing to have sex with an old, unattractive person 60 times in the next 5 years?

Yes

We are taking in a female Eclectus parrot named Sophie from my boyfriend's parents who moved across the globe and couldn't take her with due to quarentine reasons. Eclectus parrots are the type to live for like 70 years and I guess they are kind of particular and fussy about their environment and routines. Sophie knows my boyfriend but my interaction has been limited to talking to her through her cage and being chomped on the foot by her when I got too close to the basket she was playing in.

1. Are there things I can do to gain her trust without getting my fingers bitten off? She's got a fierce beak and I'm kind of afraid of her after the foot incident.
2. Do you have any tips for keeping a happy parrot?
3. Any advice about parrots and cats co-existing?

So for those of you who did go trick-or-treating as a younger child (10 and under, say), did your parent(s), guardians, or whoever pick out their favorites to keep for themselves as they went through your candy? 

If so, honestly, were you totally okay with that, did you resent the hell out of it, or something in between?

Did it make a difference how much they took, and how much did they usually take?

What did they take that you most would have liked to keep for yourself?

I like the idea of El Dia de los Muertos although it's not observed at all here. I tend to turn a blind eye to Halloween; we've got Bonfire Night a few days after which is much groovier, and I find trick or treating pretty loathsome to be honest. Please not to be egging my house. :)

Maybe it's not all that cool to wear the same Halloween costume more than once, but what if it's really spiffy?

I've worn some variant of a wenchy costume for the last few years, because each year I buy new and improved parts. Like now I have a nice chemise, leather underbust, black skirt, and a cloak that I made. And by next year I'd like a petticoat, and a higher quality skirt. etc etc. I'd be content to just improve and wear the same idea of a costume for years, but I wondered what all you folks thought?

It's been around here for years and years, but I don't know if it's an international type of gesture, though I'd assume it would be.

How do you wake yourself up in the morning?
What is the most effective way to wake up in the morning?


I can't wake up at all in the mornings. I set up several different alarms, but I can just turn them off and go back to bed.

TQC, have you ever seen something that looked like it belonged in a movie?

Today on the bus, there were three people complaining about how things were going in their dance group. It was so dramatically overblown that I half expected to hear that there would be a dance-off tonight to settle things once and for all.

I have two short essays that I can pick the topic for, an essay on Pride and Prejudice, and an essay topic for Indigenous Studies due Monday. Which should I work on first?

What's the last thing you ate?

ETA: I wanted to make myself a poster using some clips from a graphic novel series I read. So long as I'm not selling it, claiming it's my own art, or editing it, that's legal, right?

1. Do people give children up for adoption when they've grown up? As opposed to giving birth and immediately giving the child up. I have images of a three or four year old, but any age under 18 but above newborn works for me.

2. What do you do for a living?

3. What do you wish you where better at? Basketball, math, driving, whatever.

4. What's your first name?

I need a second job...

I was talking to someone at work last night and they asked me if I was going to get a second job. I kinda want one, but it would be difficult to find one that would fit specifically into my needs/requirements. Then they asked. "Can't you find one on the internet, you know, working on line or something."

Which brings me to my question: Is it possible to work "on-line" part-time? Any suggestions?

Have you ever experienced a random act of kindness?
Yes, this older lady from the retirement community that was right behind my old house offered to help me move as she saw me walking back and forth with my little red wagon. She was really nice and helpful. It was very random, and I love her for it!

Have you ever done a random act of kindness?
I've helped people take groceries out to their car and I've helped a couple of women pick up the contents of their purses. So yes.

Book recs?

I'm looking for a good fall/winter read. You know, a book you can cuddle up with under lots of blankets with a cup of tea and some delicious cookies while it's pouring and cold outside.

Can anyone recommend one (or more?!) preferably long (300+ pages would be terrific) book? I've not come up with anything after hours of browsing Amazon. :/

 I like historical books, fantasy, crime, poetry, glbt lit, biographies, anything. I like childrens' books, too, but they're usually rather short... Strong female leading characters would be great, but are entirely optional.

Ah, to be young and utterly obtuse...

this may be a bit tl;dr for some. but it goes with my question.

At work this "preppy" (I suppose you could call her "posh") girl sees these teenage girls (who can be but a year or two younger than herself.) and she looks at me and goes. "Omgosh, those girls scare me." I look over and don't can't see what is so terrifying. "Why?" I ask. "Isn't it obvious. All that black, and those chains." I turn to her. "Some of my best friends in high school wore attire like that. Are you gonna be afraid of me too?"  "I just don't see how they can be comfortable with all that black, and their clothes are so baggy, and those chains..." "They ain't scary, darlin, they are different." "I just don't see how they are comfortable, that's all." "And that makes them scary? Dear, I don't see how people are comfortable in pink, or clothing that is skin tight. Should I be afraid of them?" The girl then gets defensive. "You mean people like me? I'm a good person, I'm friends with everyone, except people like that because they think I'm a snob, and I'm not, Just because I wear clothing that says Hollister doesn't mean I'm a snob."

She never did answer my question. Maybe i should be afraid of her. ::shrug::

1. My question is; at what ago should people be expected to look beyond what they see?
2. Is it too much to expect someone that is of legal age to be a little open minded?
3. Should I go into work one day next week on my day off wearing all black and go through her line to FREAK HER OUT ?(OMG I SO SKEEEERY!)
4. Why can't some people accept the fact that they are people out there that just prefer the color black? (This poor girl would never last a day in New York. LOL... at least, that's what I hear... am sorry if I am over-simplifying here.)

I just got an email from someone in my past, in this email he mentioned about a friend we had who got in trouble and is now serving 4-7 years. He said he didn't want to spoil the surprize and for me to google him and I could read about it. Well I have and I yahoo'd and blingo'd etc anyhow I can't find anything about him. I am doing the search like this

Patrick+Allen+Stark and like this Patrick Allen Stark


I honestly don't think this is enough information to go on, what do you think?


It's not a big deal using his name I mean hell if he was in all the Detroit papers and is a criminal does it really matter?

So my boyfriend thought it was a good idea to hide and scare me when I got out of my car when I got home at 11:00 (after I just watched scary movies with people oh noes). I spilled coffee on my new white coat because his scare tactics worked. This generally makes me upset because he knows I am whiny and no fun and do not appreciate being scared in the first place, and now my new innocent white coat has been brought into it.

What kind of prank should I do to get back at him? It deserves something small!

1. What's a good home cure/treatment for tendonitis? I have it from where my wrist meets my hand to right above my elbow.

I've been seeing a physical therapist, and it helps some, but not as much as I want. I just got finished w/ physical therapy for the 2nd time. I don't want another relapse for no identifiable reason.

2&3. What I really want is for my tendonitis to go away, and my arm to be like it was before. Is that possible? What could I do to make that happen?

 i have a Spanish test on friday, I'm with a group of people and we have to discuss school for a maximum of five minutes. I think this is getting off easy, but half of my group still complains that it should be two minutes. Do you think doing a five minute conversation as a test is fair? Do you know any other languages besides your native one? What is your native language?

I got my old phone replaced because it was broken and they sent me the newest version of it. Is it stupid that I got excited over the address book features on this thing?

Okay, I need suggestions on how to make an ice pack. I just had my wisdom teeth out, so I have this nifty little sling that holds two 3" x 2" x .10" icepacks, right on my jaw. It's genius and works great, but they only gave me two ice packs, so when they melt I have to wait 2 hours at least for them to freeze up a little. I tried using frozen peas, but they melt even faster and they start to stink, so that's a big negative. My mom made me a baggy of ice, double bagged, but they always leak.

1. Do we just suck at properly sealing the bags (ziplock), or are they gonna leak no matter what?

2. What can I use to make ice packs?

3. Since my sling is soaking wet now, how would I go about drying a lycra/spandex piece of material without shrinking it too much?

4. For all my GHOST HUNTERS LIVE watchers out there, Dustin and Kris need to leave that stupid ball alone, y/y?

computers

Hello, i have a question about computers.  About my computer and how to fix it.  Here is the thing, one day i turned it on, it started up as normal and i worked on it for a few minutes then suddenly i must  have hit a key wrong or something but my screen completly shifted sideways.  Everything is now 90 degrees to the left.  This has been going on fro about 2 weeks, i have asked many friends to come over and look at it, i have fooled with the settings and things but nothing i seem to do will fix it.  
It is usable and i am making the best of it, but i am a student and do much work on my computer and its confusing, annoying and hurting my neck.  Im about to break down and take it to a repair shop.  Does anyone have any suggestions for me before i go and spend an arm and leg on a probably simple solution?

Thank you, ali.
