I've been on the pill for like 5 years now. I won't be able to get it refilled for a while, and thus will be without it for a week. Now, besides the obvious side effect of being more likely to get pregnant, what other side effects can I expect from going off it for just a week? Will it really even matter?

Pavo? Chompipe? Guajolote? Chumpe? Jolote?

2) Does it sound odd to you to hear it called something else?

3) If you have no interest in questions 1 & 2, what do you have an interest in?

Does anyone else use Skype to make overseas calls?

Do you use the free Skype to Skype calling or use it to call landlines/cell phones?

If you've been using it tonight, does the call quality completely suck?

Would I get better quality calls if I paid to call my parents' landline?

Alternatively, is there another good way to make super cheap international calls that would have better quality?

To any TQC Nintendo Wii owners --

Is there a way to transfer a saved game from one Wii to another? I'm going to Vegas in a few weeks for work and want to play my Zelda file on my friend's Wii, but I'm not sure how. I have to option to bring my Wii with me, but I'd rather not travel with it.

Which brings me to... should I be concerned about my Wii going through the x-ray machine? My sister says she's worried it'll harm it, and I have no idea if it will or not.

This whole post sounded sexual in a very odd way.

I am starting to think one of my best friends has feelings for my boyfriend.

Should I confront her about her behaviour? Should I punch her in the face or talk to her in a nice, calm manner about it? Should I be telling her boyfriend about what she's doing?

Also, did you know that 'krikrikri' spell checks as 'gimcrackery'? Thoughts?

I woke up at 3:00PM today, or I guess yesterday, and my entire body hurt insanely bad. Well, it still hurts, it actually feels worse. AND I have bruises all over my legs and I feel like I have a black eye, though there isn't a bruise or anything. Just the painy feeling. What the hell, TQC? Did I get into a fight with ninjas in my sleep?

Should I try to go to sleep now? I don't want to but I know I should. Hm...

Do you like birds? I dislike birds. They are too bony, with their tiny little...bones. And they can flap in your face if they really wanted to.

I have like, the reverse of seasonal effective disorder. Feel terrible in the summer, over the top during winter. Is my brain confused?

What the hell am I talking about?

College, random

I read an article about why kids drop out of college, and one of the reasons was that the work was way too hard. High school didn't prepare the kids and it was just too overwhelming. A girl left a comment saying that she took all AP classes in high school and college was still too hard for her.

1) So, for those of you who are in college, do you think you were prepared, was it significantly harder than high school or is it really completely overwhelming?

2) Is it stupid to major in something that you're just okay at, rather than really good at? Would I be setting myself up for failure?

For example, I've pretty much made up my mind that I want to go for science (conservation biology, wildlife conservation, biology... one of those. Haha.) They always say you need a strong math and science background. Math- I'm pretty pathetic at. I have the basics down but other than that, it's really challenging. I've decided on science because it's what I'm most interested in, but I'm afraid I'll end up surrounded by a bunch of science geniuses while I barely get by. I know I could easily major in English and fly right through, but I just don't want to.

3) (for those of you who don't care about the above)
If you could have something weird in a house that you built, what would it be?

I'd want a room with a ceiling that was actually a huge fish tank, so I could watch them swim around. I'm sure someone has that, but whatever.

When did the cool kids start saying Internets/z instead of Intarweb?

If you're married, does all your stuff become communal property, or do you still feel like your things are exclusively yours? I don't mean legally, I mean, "Please ask me before you use my towel/notebook/mp3 player?" Would this happen maybe with only very special, significant items? Unmarried people are welcome to weigh in as well.

Shit, I forgot what I was going to ask, TQC! - it was kind of important and something I needed help with.  I'm going to leave to go to the store, and then I'll probably remember because that's how it seems to work these days.

Please help me jog the tired, faulty memory -
What is it I was going to ask? 
If anyone succeeds in helping me remember, I swear there will be a prize or nice thank you present in it for you!

tobacco companies have persisted in a 'very deceptive marketing practice' regarding 'light' cigarettes

tqc, are you a smoker?
if so, how long have you been smoking? and why haven't you quit?

do you think that marketing cigarettes as 'light' or 'ultra light', knowing that people who smoke them compensate by taking bigger puffs or inhaling deeper is deceptive, or does tobacco companies' acknowledgment of the fact that 'light' cigarettes aren't 'light' in any meaningful way get them off the hook?

and while i'm thinking about it, how do you feel about "fat free" foods that are less healthy than their "normal" counterparts due to increased usage of highly processed sugars?

Have you done something really stupid lately?

I bumped my head at work yesterday really, really hard. I was putting my bag on a shelf, under a staircase and leaned up really fast. I had tears in my eyes and my head started bleeding and my co-worker was like "Shit, are you alright?" when I walked out wiping blood from my head. My reply was "If I faint, tell the ambulance man I hit my head".

Book question

Does anyone remember a children's book from several years ago that's about some kids in some European country during WW2. They ride their sleds a lot and somehow they get involved in smuggling some gold out of their town right under the Nazis' noses... they put them on their sleds, cover them up with a blanket or something, and pretend like they're sled riding for fun. What freakin' book is that?!

All I remember is my copy was purple and had a picture of a kid sledding down a hill. Or something like that.

Thanks in advance, y'all. :)

Running in the Cold

Question for the runners out there: What is the best way to dress for running road races in the cold?

Obviously pants/headband/breathable gloves etc., but is there anything I can wear or put over my mouth so I'm not sucking in freezing air while running? Any specific type of layering that is best? I have never run for long outside in the cold before and don't want to give up after the first mile because I'm a wussy cold person.

For other people: Does it annoy you when city traffic and roads are blocked because of run/walk charity events? In my experience, some people are really damm rude to runners on the roads.

1. do you work overtime sometimes?
2. are you paid for your overtime work? if you weren't paid would you still work overtime?

my boss is weird and this morning she was saying how the competition works on saturdays and sundays during crunch time. hinting that i should too. we do not get paid for working overtime. nor do we get time off for it. there's no sort of recognition for the extra effort. i have many times worked on saturdays AND sundays but then its like it doesn't matter. she's talking to me today like i've never stayed after work (i'm supposed to leave at 4:30 but i'm always leaving much later than that). i dunno that shit just rubbed me the wrong way. i do not have a problem with working overtime (and i will stay in later because this project needs to get done, i just hate the way she acted like i don't ever do it, and the fact that there's no recognition what so ever. *ugh and as usual i couldn't verbalise any of this at the time :(

Everytime one of my roommates takes a shower, she shuts the shower curtain, and I always have to make sure no one is dead in the shower or hung themselves before I can pee. So anyway, I was thinking...Our school has this deal where if your roommate kills themselves in your dorm, you get to move to a sweet ass dorm, and you don't have to pay for the next semester, or you get the current one refunded. My very twisted questions based on this are....

1. If you were going to kill yourself, would you do it in your dorm so your roommates would get to move, and get better housing? Why or why not?

And for those of you who are just going to say ' I will never kill myself so whatever '....

Okay, I saw this Felix the Cat movie when I was little and never heard of it again. I have no idea what it's called, but I think it stats off with Felix opening his bag of tricks and water comes flooding out and sweeps him away. And there's a princess in a bubble who dances and performs for a circus and he has to rescue her. I can't remember much else from the movie anymore and I can't find anyone who knows what I'm talking about. Do you know this movie?

I think I found it. Felix the Cat: The Movie. And it's on YouTube! :D

TQC, if you cook pasta and then refrigerate it, how long do you think it'll stay good for? I only ask because I have a thing of leftover pasta (no sauce, just the pasta) that's been in there for almost a week. Should I still eat it?

I'm thinking yes, but that's why I'm asking you.

How much television would you say you watch in an average day? *By "television," I mean not only network & cable TV, but DVD movies, DVDs of TV shows, movies and shows you download, and online movies and episodes of shows.*

I watch probably half an hour to an hour on average. I spend most of the day writing papers/theses, and I like to fire up an episode of South Park or the West Wing to relax before I go to bed.

I interviewed for a job at The Gap for the holidays. Nothing major, just weekends and a couple of nights a week. I thought I had done just fine in the interview, but apparently not, as the girl who interviewed me let me know that they wouldn't need me. I would have been fine with that, had my friend not gone in there this morning and been asked by someone if she'd like to "make a little cash" this month. So, my question is what the fuck?

How does one screw up an interview for something as silly as a holiday job at The Gap? All this girl asked me was what do I do, how well do I work with people, and a bunch of other inane crap that I'd suspect they ask at every interview. Did she just immediately dislike me or did I perhaps give of some sort of a vibe that made her think I was incapable of properly folding sweaters?

EDIT: Before there is another comment about my attitude: I was very very nice to this girl and I did indeed want the job. I told her more than once how often I shopped there and how much I like their clothes. I have a right to be bitter now, though.

1. in the past month, what have you spent the most money on, other than bills? after looking at my bank account online, my answer is eating out/bar...this is almost always the case.

2. how much do you pay on average for a beer or mixed drink in your town? here in metro detroit, i would say on average, $3 for a bottle/pint of beer, or $4-5 for a mixed drink.

3. do you think $750 is a high or low price for a decent laptop? i'm looking at a dell with 2GB memory and 160GB hard drive, and an intel core 2 duo processor.

4. what does gas cost in your town right now? metro detroit, about $3.05

5. if you had to get rid of ONE monthly payment that you currently make in order to make ends meet, what would it be? i would have to say cable tv (not internet though). i would pick the gas bill but it gets pretty damn cold in michigan.

Woah, did I just enter the twilight zone or what? Age being bad seems everyone is all "Oh I"m getting older, don't remind me!" or how people say "I'm getting SO OLD" as if it's a curse. And how you don't ask people their age because it's rude. Hope that makes the question a bit clearer.

I want to start a baby rental agency. It will allow people to have a child for as long as they want, with no worries about getting bored and regretting it, no 9 months of pregnancy, and no labor. You can also test drive the children, so to speak. Not sure if you can handle one? Rent it for a week and see! I might join the agency with my cookie factory, so you can pick up a fresh child and some fresh delicious cookies!

1. What should I name it?
2. How much should I charge per age-group? I'm thinking the groups will be: 0 months - 2 years, 3 years - 6 years, 7 years - 14 years, and then 15 years - 18 years. There will also be the option to buy a baby after a minimum of one week test driving. How much should that be?
3. Should I offer cheaper rates over time? Example: someone gets one child for two weeks and pays $50 per day, another person gets a child of the same age for a month and pays $35 a day.
4. Will this be a haven for pedophiles?
5. Would you make use of such a service? I need to see if there is enough demand for this before I invest time and resources into such a big endeavor.
6. Is there any advice you have for me before I start my agency?

1. Is there anything more irritating than a hole in your sock right on the big toe?

2. I have my Christmas presents mostly figured out but am coming up with a blank for my dad and two nephews. Dad is, well, as hard to buy for as any dad, one nephew is almost 16 and one is turning 19. Any ideas?

3. I bought a shiny lime green pencil skirt the other day (no really, it's hot). What can I wear it with except for black, without looking like a clown?

4. Chicken or turkey?

5. Why am I so frakking amped?

Did anyone (including the teacher) say anything to them?
How can I make myself less conspicuous?

Honestly, on a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your physical attractiveness?

0 - I look like I was pooped out
5 - nothing ugly about me but not an ounce of pretty either
10 - The most attractive I have ever seen

How about compared to the members of TQC?

1) where can I acquire a cheap desk chair (with arm rests plz <3) for under 30 bucks? I've looked everywhere- Ikea, Target, Staples, and Office Depot.

2) Have you ever dissected a squid?

3) Doesn't Frank Sinatra make you think of christmas?

What do you think of people who use big words seemingly for the sole purpose of showing off their vocabularies? Should they get off their high horse? Or, God forbid they show a smidgen of intelligence?

I only ask because there's a guy in one of my classes who insists on using the biggest words possible in his writing. I'm going through his essay, and it looks like he's done the "find synonyms" thing on Word and grabbed the longest one there, over and over and over.

Which, in my opinion, makes him look like a pretentious douche who's hellbent on proving himself as the smartest guy in class.

What do you think, TQC?

Has anyone ever broken in to your house?

Have you ever thought someone broke in to your house because things were moved around?

Am I going crazy or was there really someone in my apartment today while I was gone?

software stuff

I need to reinstall my XP... I kind of left my CD for HP back at my parents place across the globe. And it's probably lost in the midst of all software CDs in a big box somewhere in the house. But I have the CD for a Dell laptop with me. It's the same version XP but it's for Dell. Does that mean I can't use it for my HP?

One is the loneliest number

TQC, I'm in love with my best friend, and it's mutual However, it isn't going to go anywhere.  So I am contemplating my singleness tonight. Will you fill out this poll for me?  FYI, this isn't a pity post, I'm happy being single, actually, which is one reason the relationship isn't moving forward.

Poll #1095652 Mateless

How do you view your relationship status?

Single and lovin' it!
Single, but looking. Might be lonely?
Attached and happy with it
Attached but wish you were single?
A choice that I missed? Explain in comments?
For clarification, single here means no committed relationships. You can still date and be single!

Ah, fuck it, sorry the poll got broken....I'd delete, but you guys would yell at me.
Beast mode!

I GOT A CHRISTMAS PRESENT IN THE MAIL TODAY! I'm pretty sure I know what it is, and it's something I really want and could use. Should I open it now or wait until closer to Christmas?

(I won't be opening on Christmas because I'm going away and ain't dragging it with me, so it'll still be opened before Christmas.)

Picture this, TQC.

It's Monday. It's been a Monday. Right down to the backspace key sticking and deleting a whole chunk of your post. *fnarr*

You sit in front of the computer with the cold frosty beverage of your choice, start up iTunes, and start playing... What?

I've been listening to Abba and The Bee Gees all evening. Did the trick. Nothing like nicely blended harmonies to a beat you can dance to...

Christmas cards

Even though I'm Jewish, I like to send and receive Christmas cards. As a thirtysomething yuppie, my friends are all too hip to participate. What can I do? Are there Christmas-card communities and stuff? My searches turned up zilch. christmascard, for example, is dead.

"Holiday" cards are acceptable too. ;)

Why is it that at my college, in the academic building bathrooms there are toilet seat covers, but in the dorm bathrooms there aren't? Is it like....we live in the same building, so who cares if our asses touch the same surface?

2. I'm really sick :(. my god daughter passed her cold onto me. when was the last time you were really sick? who made you sick?

I would like to go to Tournament C.

In order to attend Tournament C, it is required that I go to either Tournament A or Tournament B.
- Tournament A is the entire weekend after my sixteenth birthday (which falls on a wed) and the forms were due today. I can try to email someone and try to get it in tonight; or turn them in late. The location is not near where I live, but many friends are going and I can probably find a carpool.

- Tournament B is close to where I live. However, the date of Tournament B is a fundraiser that I am required to attend. I would be able to leave the fundraiser, earliest, at 7:00. I do not know yet when Tournament B will start. Few friends of mine are in attendance.

2.) I'm turning sixteen next week. What kind of jobs did you have around my age? Which were the best? Any recommendations? I hate kids, love reading, violin, and general tech dorkiness. :D
