How long after your last time conversing with someone do you leave them on your IM contacts list? Does it depend on how long you've known them/why you haven't spoken to them in ages?

I haven't removed anyone from my list for simply falling out of contact, so it's still full of people I went to summer camp with. I've only ever blocked one person, because I was fifteen, he was twenty one, and kept sending my ascii porn and telling me he was imagining me naked.

What are you sorry about? What do you regret?

I'm sorry I was mean to my cat when I was in high school. It was sick and didn't mean to pee on my bed. I still feel bad for pushing it away and yelling at it. Poor kitty. :-(

1a. Are you Jewish?
1b. If not, are you a religion that doesn't fall under Catholicism Christianity (you guys have enlightened me, thank you. Hopefully I got it right this time)?
1c. If you answer was yes to either of the above, what do you say when people ask about going to church or Christmas or anything else that is Catholic Christian-centric?
2. How does it make you feel?

1a/1c. I'm Jewish and I find myself saying, over and over again "I'm Jewish" to these questions.
2. I really don't care, but it just gets repetitive.

What is your favorite Thanksgiving dessert?

I've decided to put myself in charge of making the dessert for my family since I won't be able to go go dinner with the whole big family thanks to working all day but I'd like to be apart of the celebration and so I'd like some ideas of what to make.

I have to work on Thanksgiving. I hadn't planned on it, but my family got pissed and canceled Thanksgiving for us, so I figured I could use the hours because I'm dirt poor and can use all the hours I can get.

The place I work is a retail store; we sell clothes, makeup, all that stuff, and also food. No frozen food section, or anything like that; mostly just chips and pop, and some select canned goods that I suspect are probably a bit past their expiration dates anyway. Normally, we're not very busy - on a normal day, an hour on the register and I'll have rung up maybe twenty customers, if that.

Do you think the store will be busy on Thanksgiving, or basically empty? Should I bring a book to read?

Can henna tattoos be done in black? Do they look real? I guess what I should really ask is, can they be passed off as real, even if just for a day?

I'm asking because my friend and I need to pull a prank on the guy we currently work for. He always jokes about paying someone big cash to get a tattoo of his initials somewhere on their body and we're trying to get revenge for something he just pulled.

Seems a lot of you have room-mates.

I'm baffled. Why?

How do you get any privacy?

How do you feel about these fuzzy little critters? Sweet and cuddly? Indifferent? Tasty food? Mortal Enemy?

They're my mortal enemy. At least, the wild ones that infest my yard. I'm not sure why exactly, but something about watching anywhere from two to ten of them bolt as my headlights hit the yard every night when I come makes me fear that my home will soon be taken over.

CD cover dimensions

I'm trying to design a CD cover in Photoshop. The internets told me that CD covers are 4.75" by 4.75", but that ends up being really small when I make an image of that size in Photoshop, and it prints too small too. Help. :( I need dimensions in pixels, and either Google lied to me or I'm doing it wrong. What should I do?

Also, what is your favorite city in the USA? Mine is Boston, but I am biased because I live here and I love it.

If you use tampons: how srsly do you take the amount of time you leave a tampon in?
I ask because I met someone today who was paranoid about TSS and sets an alarm on her phone to go off every four hours because six hours between changing is apparently WAY TOO LONG.
And on the other hand, my mum puts one in and then sleeps in it for ~9 hours without a worry in the world.

We got a bunch of new towels and sent them all through the wash before they were used. But they left fuzzies all over when you dried off with them. So we sent them all through the wash again, and still they're leaving fuzzies. They're decent quality towels , so why are there so many fuzzies?

Locks of Love?

I'm getting my long hair chopped off tomorrow and was thinking of donating the length to Locks of Love. After looking them up online, I find there's quite a bit of controversy over how much donated hair they sell to either hair product research labs, celebrities (as weaves, extensions, etc), or both, and also how few wigs they actually make and give/sell to the poor little children.

O Great Question Club, does anyone here have personal experience with them? Are they as sleazy as some people make them out to be, or is it a pointless internet furor?

Do you play an instrument? What is it? How long have you played? What's your favorite thing to play on said instrument? If you don't play an instrument, what have you always wanted to learn? (It's not too late!)

I play the piano, flute, organ and guitar, in ascending order of mediocrity. I've been playing the piano for about 20 years, and I love Chopin and Debussy. I've always wanted to play the cello, though, and think I will take lessons this coming year!

Another episode of "TQC, Make My Decisions For Me!"

TQC, what should I do for Christmas?

Option A: Spend a bunch of money that I really shouldn't to fly to Florida and have a traditional family Christmas with my mom and brother.

Option B: Drive to Ohio and spend Christmas with my dad and step-mom, who I've never spent Christmas with because they're kinda weird, and I won't get to have any of my traditional Christmas stuff.

Option C: Stay home and have Christmas with my roommate and her brother & sister-in-law, where I can have my family traditions, but none of my family.

Option D: Secret unknown option I haven't thought of and you will tell me.

It should be noted that I really love Christmas, my family traditions, and my family.

Is anyone else dreading Thanksgiving this year? If so, why?

Poll #1092055 VERY IMPORTANT POLL!!!!!!

Should I pre-order "Bender's Big Score"???

No, just wait for the new episodes.
Not sure.
Are you insane? Did you even have to ask? YES!!!

In theory, it is released next Tuesday. I already died a happy orgasmic death upon discovering that more episodes were being made, this would only re-kill me in the most blissful manner man has ever seen.

And I realize that some of you don't give a rat's ass about Futurama. This is not for YOU. This is for ME, a stupid *squeeeeee*-ing fangirl that goes through withdrawal when she doesn't get her daily dose of Bender. So STFU and take the damn poll.

old news; or, what do we have to be thankful for this year?

TQC, i know that you're made up mostly of women and have Important Things on your minds like sandwiches, boyfriends who text their exes upwards of twice a week and pooping, but i thought i would take a moment to ask if you think that the failure, six years after the fact, to capture or kill the mastermind of the terrorist attacks on america, with the number of american casualties in a completely unrelated war exceeding 15,000 by some estimates, can reasonably be called a success that hasn't occurred yet.

so, do you?

1) On the California EDD form, one of the questions asked is if you have looked for work during the specified week.  If you check yes, you have to support your claim by listing the date you applied, company name, company city, and contact person.  Three weeks ago, I looked for work but I didn't apply anywhere.  I checked the "yes" box but I was unable to prove it.  I received a letter yesterday that said that I either answered yes and no to the same question or the form was incomplete.  I'm pretty sure the form was complete when I submitted it.  That leads me to believe that it was rejected because I didn't have any proof that I looked for a job that week.  I submitted the form again today but I didn't do anything different.  Then again, it's possible that I forgot to sign it or I accidentally checked yes and no for the same question.  I'm just not sure that's the case because I'm pretty careful.  However, I had the information for the second week completely filled out, so I hope it shows that I wasn't slacking.

Do you think that's cause to discontinue my unemployment benefits?  The whole situation makes me nervous.

2) Have you ever lied to get a job?
2a) What did you lie about?
2b) Did it come back to bite you in the butt?

3) What are your top 3 strengths and weaknesses?
3a) Do you think "I work too hard" is a weakness?  Per my former manager, that's a positive weakness.

4) Is there any reason you can think of that a Catholic church would have it's doors closed in the middle of the day?

When waiting to cross the street, do you stand on the edge of the curb and lean slightly into the street? And if so, is it because you're hoping to get clipped by a passing car?

So.. am I a psyco??

My boyfriend is going out on Wednesday so a pub with his mates. Leaving some time after 10.30pm, planning on getting really drunk and blah blah blah the usual.

I never have issues with him going out, but I have an issue this time. He works full time as a mechanic, from 8am-5pm, works a lot of overtime and is always complaining that he is tired. He has also changed jobs 4 times in the last year for various reasons.

I feel like a nazi, but I'm really worried that shit like this is going to cause him to loose another job. He doesn't get it. And i'd hate to be one of those girlfriends that never lets their boyfriend out. What should I do?

ETA: he also workes Saturdays, and there is no real reason for going out on Wednesday (i.e. birthday), its just because he can.



So I've been working on a directory for our business. It has gone back and forth from the printers and me for the last month and a half (proofs upon proofs upon proofs).

It's finally going to print and my co-worker is FURIOUS that we will not have it next week (we'll get it the first week of December) and now my co-worker insists on calling the printing company and chewing them out.

I feel that calling them, only to chew them out, will only hinder-not help the situation.

I cleaned out my house today. I have 2 boxes of VHS tapes and DVDs that I do not want any more.

Should I eBay each tape/DVD individually or should I try to sell it as two lots - one for the VHS and one for DVD?
OR should I just say sod it all and bin them and make some dumpster divers very happy?

Honestly, I'd be happy if someone paid for shipping so I could get rid of them.

If it matters,the VHS movies are: American Psycho, Dogma, Mallrats, Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Keeping the Faith, Gone in 60 seconds, Clerks, Chasing Amy, Grosse Point Blank, Usual Suspects, Pulp Fiction, Shawshank Redemption, Shipping News, American Beauty and Silence of the Lambs.

The DVDs are: Irma La Douce, Under the Tuscan Sun, Airplane,Airplane II, Life of Emile Zola, Double Indemnity, Exodus, Punch Drunk Love, Black Hawk Down, Support your Local Sheriff, The Lost Weekend and A Walk to Remember

Rather motley mix, I know.

Dear TQC,

I'm sick of my flatmates music, i want to introduce some culture into the house.
I know we've had lots of this question lately.. but can you give me your favourite classical music piece?..
Can be instrumental or choral.

I love Jupiter- Holst and Gloria- Vivaldi.

I adore classical and there are so many famous pieces I hear around but have no idea what they are called or where they are from [perhaps the ballet, I used to go a lot as a kid] so hopefully some of you will love the famous ones too.

Thanking you muchly.

I'm a grad student in a drama department. I was/am supposed to give a lecture to the intro to theatre history kids (mostly first-years) tomorrow morning on the textual history of Hamlet. I spent the last few weeks writing it up and tweaking it, along with a PowerPoint and handouts.

Then I hear from the class's TA (who's my officemate) that the students weren't asked to read the play, and most of them never have. I have no idea how I'm going to give this lecture if they haven't the faintest clue what I'm talking about.

Do I spend time that I don't have tonight completely revising the lecture to somehow (I don't know how) speak to all of those students who haven't read the play? Or do I stick with what I've got and bravely go ahead and talk way over their heads for an hour?

Are you the sort of person to 'Air your dirty laundry in public'?
As in, tell anyone who will listen your problems.

I ask because a friend of mine has a new tradgedy every week, and tells anyone.
Today it was that her electrician hung himself, last week because someone who's dad she knew was run over by a tractor.
Would you tell people these sort of things?

New drinks

Let's say we made a couple new alcoholic cocktails. Based on their names, what do you suppose would be among the ingredients?

1. Repressed Mormon

2. Scientologist

3. Lesbianic

Sorry for the tl;dr-ness.

Say you had plans to hang out with someone after class for a few hours, and they were expecting you to be there between 3:30 and 4:00. However, you didn't have anything in specific planned, you were just going to hang around at their house for a little bit. After class one of your classmates asks if you want to go grab a bite to eat. You say sure because you know the person wouldn't mind, but you'll also be at their house a little bit later than before... around 4:30 or 5:00.

Would you call the person and let them know that you're going to be a little late?

Once, I found this really cool a capella version of The Postal Service's "The District Sleeps Alone Tonight". I think the name of the group has "Knights" in it, but that might be something else. Anyone know where I can find it or who it's by?

Also, I have this nasty sore on the back of my ankle from a burst blister, and it's really not fun. How can I get it to heal faster?

1) What is the best combination of food items to put between two slices of bread and eat?

2) Guess you could say you're the one I trusted, who would ever think that you would spread like mustard?

For those of you that pee standing up:

3) Over the fence or through the gate? If you don't get this don't worry, maybe I just watch too much Curb Your Enthusiasm.

1. Are you done Christmas shopping yet?

2. Do you still have Halloween candy lying around?

3. Are lady bugs invading your house?
yep, crazy weather!

4. Do you bank online?
Usually I just use it to check my balances and see what's cleared.

feel free to skip this one

okay, long semi-boring question ahead, but tqc gave good advice when i was trying to make my prom dress, so i figured i'd give it a shot. okay, so i've been wanting to make a dress with this pattern ( ) for quite some time now, but didn't really have an occasion for it. now i'm going to a wedding at the end of december and i think i want to make this dress for it.

i need some opinions, though. first, which view do you like best, and which is most appropriate for a wedding that is "black tie optional"? I personally like the long one in the middle best, but I think I should make the one on the left.

second, what color do you think i should make it? black and white are both out and i don't like pastel, but anything else is fair game.

so far, i'm leaning towards "persian blue" (as defined by wikipedia) or burnt orange. the lace and under layer can be different colors, too.

1. What's a quality that, while socially acceptable, would put you off from dating someone?

2. What does the most attractive person you know in real life look like? No pictures, use words please.

3. Does it bother you when an adult is unable to write as casually as they talk?
Edit to clarify: They can speak casually, no problem, but can't write like that. Instead, they write formal, cliched things they would never ever say: "I hope you are well. I am well also."

Whats the name of that movie where all these people had powers, and his dad was a super hero. But the boy was teased and picked on because he didn't have any powers, but then later in the movie he came into some powers of his own. Whats the name of that movie?

I was diagnosed with diabetes this morning. It was 463 after fasting for 12 hours :(

Do you have diabetes?
anyone in your family have it?

any suggestions on what I can do (other than eat better and take my pills) to get it lower than high?


a friend of mine gave me a copy of the amy winehouse album, "back to black". i had heard of her, but i hadn't actually heard any of her songs. i know, i live under a rock.

anyway, i was so pleasantly surprised - it's totally not what i expected and it's great!

so, tea-queue-sea, what kind of surprises have you had recently?
(good or bad, whatever floats your boat...)

Anyone remember what the name of this old program is? It was pretty cheesy. You'd open it, and basically be able to "destroy" whatever you saw on your monitor with guns, hammers, et cetera.

I'm fine

Cinema Bizarre? who the fuck are they?

heya bitchez,

i'm bored, angsty, and pissed off. i've got a problem with my friends, and my family... everyone want's to kill everyone else... so i have come to my sanctuarty... LJ...

i'm bored of being asked "what are you listening to?" and when the reply come back as cinema bizarre, them saying "cinema bizarre? who the fuck are they?"
then i say, "they are a german band" and they say "what? why would you wanna listen to that crap?" without haveing ever heard it.

well, all i can say is 1) don't knock it 'till you've tried it, and 2) just because it dosent appeal to you, dosen't mean i can't like it.

so, i'm bring my piss assed problems to TQC.

so, here are my questions:

1) have you ever heard of cinema bizarre?
2)if yes, did you like it? if no, would you be prepared to give them a try?(it's in english, i swear!)
3)have you ever judged a band by the contry they are from?
4)how can i deal with the fact that nobody has a clue who they are?
5)dose my catchphrase (BITCHEZ) annoy you? (irrelevant, i know)
okay, and beacuse i'm weird, here's a sample of their music, with a video i made for the people who haven't heard of them!

This is a questionnaire about dictionaries for one of my classes, I know it isn't all that exciting, but it would be nice if some people could answer it.

2) What kinds of dictionaries do you use?

3) Do you rather use online dictionaries or books?

4) What types of dictionaries do you know? (this referes to different types of dictionaries like for instance etymological, monolingual etc.)

5) What kind of difficulties did you experience when using dictionaries?

Do you think that the political correctness of the holiday season (actually, just holidays in general) is getting a little overboard? Why or why not?

I fully understand that some people do not celebrate the holidays. I also understand that there are more holidays than Christmas at the end of December. The over-sensetivity is getting really ridiculous though. Everyone knows that a pine tree with lights hanging from it is associated with being a Christmas tree, so calling it a holiday tree is just a little silly.

Someone please tell the clueless one what exactly FTW stands for. I /think/ there's two or three different uses, considered how/where I've seen it written.

Gah. Yeah, that's all. Kplznthx. =]

Who is this Josh Groban that was on Oprah today?

I've heard of him before, but never heard him before.

What kind of music does he sing?

Besides the Christmas carols he did today, obviously.

He's really pretty good!

Question about owning a house...

I'm currently a renter and I fully acknowledge that this may be a laaaaame question, but *shrug* that's never stopped me before!!

Do you *HAVE* to have a mortgage against your house?


What's your "happy scent"? (err.... you know; a scent that no matter your mood, that once you smell, it makes you happy!) Mines is Honeysuckle. *inhales deeply* (In fact, I have two honeysuckle scented candles burning right now! HAAPPPPPPPY!)

As I said above, am currently renting, just moved a month or two ago, well, this place has no holes in the walls whatsoever. Should I call and ask if its okay before I hang things up (like posters/calendars/photos) or should I just hang them up any ol' how?

Do you take naps?
Yis I do!

I volunteered to work the night before thanksgiving, and will have to work 6 days in a row because of it. Am I out of my ever loving mind??? Granted, I'm prolly saving the lives of innocent co-workers and random bitchy customers, but *still*,  I think I've gone and lost my head!

Lastly; in that vain, I want tomorrow night to be as pain-free as humanly possible, and am thinking of buying sugary candies and a couple of caffeinated beverages for my co-workers *shrug* I will do just about anything to keep the peaces from falling to pieces. Any suggestions??

dw-- prolly needs to make self a teal deer icon (lol)
