My roommate stopped rinsing her dishes. I've said "by the way, rinse your dishes" and she always apologizes.

I usually do all the dishes and she takes out the garbage cleans the bathroom, and vacuums. I've found dirty dishes in the drainer after she's washed them. gross.

Is it time for the awesome post-it note of reminderness by the sink saying "rinse your effing dishes" or do I tell her to wash her own dishes if she doesn't rinse them, knowing they might not get done as well?

does anyone have any recipes or websites where I can find recpies for truely exquisitly yummy holiday baked goods/candies/foods that would be good in gift boxes?

I've used my own for so many years in a row and I need some new things to make but I cant seem to find anything that looks promising.

also I'd like to make theseCollapse )

does anyone have or know of where I can find a recipe?

They're supposedly macaroons but I've only ever considered macaroons those sort of star shaped coconut type cookies and all I've found is how to make the pointy star like coconut kind :(

Can you guys tell me your favorite Thai dishes, or reccomend me dishes that you think are generally well liked/would be good to order for a group of 25 people?
I'm in charge of ordering dinner for a bunch of people this weekend, and we all decided we wanted Thai (well, they did. I've only had it a few times and I liked it, so I'm fine with that). I don't want to order some random dishes that nobody would like though. I'm pretty sure there are no vegetarians in the group, so that isn't an issue. I'm just looking for a bunch of popular Thai dishes. Thanks in advance.

EDIT: ALSO, one of the few times I've actually had Thai, I ate these little dumpling things that were filled with vegetables. The dumpling part was kind of transparent and thin (ha "transparent" that makes me feel stupid) and they were really amazingly delicious. They were pretty small. Does anybody have any idea what I'm talking about?

Did you wait in any obscenely long lines overnight in order to get a good deal on something? If you worked it, did you have any customers that made you want to stab them in the eardrum?

My friend is having a 'classic' New Years party and I've begun to practice different hair styles, since those classic styles take a long time to get used to doing.

I have victory rolls down pat (by finger rolling even!) but I'm having a terrible time with the pompadour. I can get it up and it stays there fine, but my part just pops out two or three minutes after I've put it up and no matter what I do I can't make it go away. Is there a trick to this or something that I just haven't figured out yet?

Yep. Own three of them - 100 Cartoon Classics, Family Classics 50 Movie Pack, and Musicals 20 Movie Pack.

Now he just harasses me, calling me a whore because I found someone new that is...nice to me. IDK. He's just very unreasonable. Honestly, suitable revenge would be filling his gas tank with sand. SOMETHING BETTER THAN THIS, TQC.

So I work in a mall and have gotten into the habit of just buying my lunch every day. This is getting nuts, as the cost is normally around 10 dollars (for a SANDWHICH and a DRINK). I'm going to start bringing my lunch. I make shitty sandwhiches and hate chips... so the cheapo, easy way is out. I'm thinking of swinging by the grocery store and getting a bunch of cans of soup, as well as a box of tea bags (so I don't waste another $2.10 at Starbucks for a Venti Ice Tea). I'm trying to come up with a pile of pasta recipies that are easy, fast, and good (I already know of this one).

Any suggestions for pasta recipies?

What else could I bring? Again, the aim is cheap, easy, and fast. I'd love some vegetable ideas!

Will you tell me something odd about your pets? Or just any stories about them in general?

One of my cats is some kind of bathroom voyeur. Since I moved back home in May, he always follows me into the bathroom, no matter what I'm doing. If I'm on the toilet he'll cry for attention and try to climb in my lap. If I'm in the shower or taking a bath, he sits outside the door and stares at me the whole time. :( And if I try and shut the door, he and his brother have tantrums and cry and try to break down the door with their mighty cat strength.

Could it be something in beer that's not in liquor -- a stronger wheat base maybe?

I'm really self-conscious that I can't dance. Thinking of skipping a fun event altogether.

In junior high, I was in the drill/stomp team, and everyone could dance besides me. I didn't realize it until we performed and everyone laughed at me.

Therefore, all through high school, I avoided school dances. Now I'm in college, and I'm really involved in Circle K club. There's a District Convention (where all colleges that have Circle K come together) coming up. The thing is, there's a big dance there where everyone attends it. We're all staying in a hotel for 3 days, so I can't just skip the dance unless I stay in the hotel alone.

I was really excited for the District Convention until I heard that there's a dance. Plus, there's a guy that I really like there.

Should I just skip the whole thing altogether? I don't even know where to begin if I were to dance.

I got a job at a wedding tomorrow. I'm going to be watching on the kids at the wedding for about 6 hours. I'm really only 'in charge' of two of the girls, but I'm supposed to keep an eye on all the kids to make sure they dont get into trouble. I'm also going to be driving the two girls home whenever they're ready to leave. I'm going to be paid for gas, but other than that, I dont know what to charge. Any suggestions?

I know everyone despises the "ZOMG what should I buy this person for a present!?!?" posts because we don't know these people...

but I need some help.

The great thing about the 4 gifts I need, they can be completely random. They are for 2 different gift exchanges that my friends and family do at Christmas.

Last year I did a box of Jones Soda, movie gift cards, and 2 different booze gift packs.

Previous gifts have been alcohol, games, hard liquor, candles, wine, thermometers, beer, games pertaining to get the idea.

I'd like to do something creative and different this year...but I can't think of anything.

So...TQC...can you recommend some PG rated gifts I could use for the exchange? They have to be in the $10-$15 price range.

I know these aren't all the possible gripes you can have with a SO. There are dozens of possible quirks that can break the relationship. Simply decide which of these 15 are the most annoying

Which trait could you LEAST tolerate in a significant other?

50 lbs overweight
Narcissistic. They feel that they're more important in the relationship, or hey, anyone else
Truly dislikes all public displays of affection, including holding hands
Likes sex, but is pretty godawful in bed
Slightly less than average intelligence
Poor sense of humor
Nonsentimental. Important dates and gifts purchased on such dates just don't mean much to them
Seriously codependent. They're good, considerate, nice people, just more than a bit clingy
Overly dramatic. Every small obstacle is blown out of proportion
A little too flirty for their own good. It seems like they flirt a lot with members of the opposite sex (or same, if you're gay), but they deny it
It's hard for them to get over people. They still haven't gotten over their ex
They have kids. Two
Poor oral hygeine

I don't want to just say "Hey, I'm taking you to see Modest Mouse." I spent all my money on this, and want the entire experience to be fun, and I want him to be SUPER SURPRISED when it's revealed to him what we're doing.
