I'm turning 21 later this month, but because my birthday is on Christmas and in the state where I live alcohol cannot be sold on Christmas Day, I can't go out to a bar or anything. So I'm planning to have some friends over to just hang out with my family, and I thought it might be fun to try a few drink recipes and maybe play a drinking game or something ridiculous like that.
So, what are some of your favorite recipes for alcoholic drinks? I really like Goldschlager, so if something incorporated that it would be sweet; my grandma also likes Cosmos and it might be fun to try a variation on a Cosmo.
Similarly, what are some of your favorite drinking games? Any that might not be too awkward to play with my family and my friends together?
anyone have the ipod touch?
what is your favorite scent on a guy?
I just got in a fight with one of my best friends. He said some really hurtful things to me, I "overreacted," and now he's said that he doesn't want to be my friend anymore.
This is a first for me. Usually if something like this happens with a close friend, we will talk it out and accept each others' apologies. Unfortunately, this guy was really harsh about the whole thing and now I just kind of find the thought of him nauseating.
TQC, has this (or something similar) ever happened to you?
How did you handle the anger/hurt/sadness that followed?
Were you able to be friends with/at least cordial with the person later on?

I'm almost 100% certain that this question only applies to the TQC-ers in the USA, but feel free to substitute whatever is applicable for your own country.
When you were in school, did you have to learn the names of the 50 states and their capitals, animals, trees, and song, or did you only have to memorize the names of the states?
It's starting to seem like I'm the only person in the United States who doesn't know the names of the capitals or...well, anything other than how to spell the names of states.

i have pasta, canned tuna, bread, american cheese, butter, garlic powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, old bay, steak spices, parmesan cheese, canned corn, olive oil, and milk. my roommates have stuff like ranch dressing and mustard that i might be able to use.
what can i make for dinner that involves the pasta and hopefully the tuna?
also i need to add that i don't have real parmesan cheese.
i think this question is a failure though because all the suggestions sound really disgusting and i hate casseroles so go ahead and scroll past this.
Dear TQC, I have a predicament.
I am ordering shirts online, from I site I have ordered from before. I previously purchased size Mediums - they fit alright but are a little loose for my taste. The website says a medium fits a bust size 32-34 and waist 27-28, while a small a 30-32 bust and 25-26 waist. I have a 34 bust and a 24 waist. Since I know the mediums (even after shrinking them in the wash and dryer) were too loose for what I like, should I go with the smalls anyway, even though it says it won't fit my bust?
Or should I stick with mediums and just wear shirts that don't fit 100%?
My friend asked me to bring her some coffee back from the dining hall and gave me her portable mug. So I get her the coffee, close up the mug, and put it in my bag. She did not tell me that her mug leaks real bad :(
So now my really nice dark brown suede handbag, pretty much the only nice expensive thing I own, is drenched in coffee on the bottom. I soaked up as much liquid as I could with a towel, but it smells and I'm worried it will ruin the suede. Anyone have any recommendations for cleaning it?
Really dumb question. I'm at work and I've sold a couple things but didn't have to deal with this because the computer did it.

If you were 20 years old and still lived at home, would you feel you need to have your parents permission to go to Disney World with your significant other?
Although I still live under "their roof", I don't think an-almost-21 year old adult should be treated like a child. They allow my 17 year old brother to go to keg parties and sleep over friends houses (with girls present), yet i'm older and am not allowed to take a short trip to Disney World with my boyfriend? Instead of he and I exchanging gifts for the holidays this year, we want to save for a trip there instead in early January for two nights. Plus, he just got a car so we could drive up there ourselves (which will be an issue with my parents, as well). I plan to approach my mom in a way where I will not be asking her, but telling her my plans, yet I still feel like she and my father have a say in this.
How do I stand up to my parents and not take 'no' for an answer if I feel like I am entitled to this and not being unreasonable? It's not like I want to go out of state (I live about 3 1/2 hrs away from Orlando) or to mardi gras or anything.

2. christmas party for work is a week from today. we drew names on saturday and lucky me got the boss's name. i work at a small music store, everybody participates in a drunken jam session at parties. (they're really not all that fun, but this one guy and i are going to try to put a couple songs together to sound decent.) ANYWAY. what the hell do i get my boss for christmas? $10-15 and 'anything goes.'
3. i have to back up my external hard drive onto dvd because my mac died and now i can't get to my files. i'm going to take my hard drive to the mac lab at school and transfer everything to dvd. i bought a spindle of blank dvd-r's (not +r or -rw or +rw or whatever else is out there). i read somewhere online there's a dvd format war of sorts going on, so will my shiny new dell laptop be able to read the dvd-r's i burn on an imac?

I thought I prefered real and after bitching for years about using a fake one, we just bought a real one. it completely kicked my ass. HEAVY, smelly, sappy, & not to mention screwing a stand into the trunk of it is going to leave me with a few blisters. never again. I worked too hard on it to have my cats knock it over, so any advice is appreciated.

i suck at googling because i never know the proper string of words to use so am asking here for help. this is for a friend of mine in Michigan.
she works for an Olan Mills studio. currently (for the season) she is working seven days a week and is the ONLY one at the studio. she is sent NO help, despite frequent customer complaints about wait times and the website double booking against physical/call-in bookings done at the studio itself. lately (today was the third day in a row) she was given no lunch hour. her shifts range from six hours (today) to nine (saturdays).
now i may be in a diff state (CA), but last i checked, it was illegal to deny an employee a lunch hour if they work at least four hours. i asked her this and she said that was the case, but their HR dept is being taught to look the other way.
it seems complaining to corporate will not work. if this persists, she may take my advice to complain to whatever government agency this falls under--the one that fines the asses off large companies who violate this rule. who would that be?
