I just bought a tea kettle that is copper on the inside and on the bottom. However, after using it, my water smells horrible and is all swirly and oily looking. Is this normal? Should I return this kettle and get a new, non-copper one?

My mom went a bit nuts with the wrapping this year. The presents are all gorgeous, but now we're all out of tissue paper, it's 3am and there's no way I'm going out to get more right now (Wal-Greens is open I think).

So, in times of need for tissue paper, what would you use? And I'd wait till later except that I have the house to myself at the moment. Haha.

I've had way too much caffiene, and apart from feeling like I'm about to die, I also (obviously) can't sleep.

What should I do to pass the time? By that I mean dial up friendly websites...

Is there any way to get the caffiene out of my body fast?

Me and my ex have been staying friends, and I thought that we were about to get back together, then tonight he's all over this other girl, right in front of me. Do I pretend to be nice to him, get my christmas presents, then never talk to him again, or should I just tell him off now and not get my presents?

Does anyone else have this problem?

My laptop (Vista OP) likes to just lose the internet connection at random and nothing I do will get it to come back unless I restart my laptop. It's not THIS particular internet connection because it has done this ever since I bought it in May (on my mom's wireless) and on my boyfriend's internet connection where we lived the last couple months. Now I am in a new place where I am connected right into the modem and it still happens.

So I have a friend who is moving out of his shared house, and into his own house soon. His shared house was furnished already so all he'll have is his bed, desk, computer, computer chair, and personal items. He doesn't even have a wardrobe or book cases or a chest of drawers or anything. I doubt that his new rental place will come with furniture or kitchen stuff, like a fridge or anything like that.

I'll be trying to lend him a few things, (like ... folding chairs and tables. Maybe some plates, cups and cutlery... I don't have much myself, since I live at home) and he'll be hanging out here obsessively for a few weeks I'm sure lol, but... the question is. In what order should be buy stuff? What are the absolute basic essentials that he should buy first? (furniture and kitchen supply wise) And he's not rich, and right now he doesn't have a job either, but he's looking for one.

For say, $20-$30, (I'm poor too. woe) what should/could I get him for housewarming presents that are useful? I was originally going to go for something fun like a really little water feature, but now I'm thinking I should try to help out in some other way (though he'll probably jokingly tell me that i'm no fun. :P) Oh and he's not so poor that he wont' be able to afford paper towels or something, so I don't mean things like cleaning products.

1) Are you happy for Jamie Lynn Spears?

2) What would you do if you were a pregnant teen or a soon-to-be teen papa?

3) What would your parents do?



1) As long as her family is supportive and not throwing her to the curb, I think she'll be ok.  That makes me happy for her.  She

2) I have always wanted to be a mom.  I would be nervous about being a teenage mom because of the stigma that comes with it but I don't feel like it would be the end of the world.  I think a part of me deep down inside would be kind of happy.  Having parents the parents that I do would make me feel like I'm going to be ok.

3) When I was a teenager, my mom told me that she would take care of the baby if I got pregnant but she was in no way advocating pre-marital sex.  In fact, she was pretty against it.  But, if the situation came up, she would deal with it.  My dad once said something about putting it up for adoption but I'm sure he'd let me keep it too.  He did say, however, that he wouldn't want me to have an abortion.



This entry just made me appreciate my parents more.  =)

 So, I've been trying to move out of my house for a while now.
And my friends (who I lost touch with for about a year), just started talking to me again.  We want to get an apartment about 20 minutes from where I live now.  And it's perfect.  The rent will be easy to keep up with, my work would be right across the street, and when I go to college, it'll be right in town.
I live with my boyfriend now, and we've been dating five months (which is huge for me, lol).  And I told him last night that I wanted to move in with them, expecting him to be happy for me, and he wasn't.
He said that he'd break up with me because we wouldn't be able to see each other as often.  Which isn't too big of a deal.  We spend every moment together now, which is just kind of suffocating at this point...and if I moved, I'd still see him, just not every day of the week (neither of us have cars to drive, so that's problematic). 

So TQC, is he being unreasonable, or am I?  Or are both of us just stupid :]P
Serious and non-serious answers are appreciated.

I've called the Humane Society twice now on my neighbors and I just got back from work and heard my parents talking about how the dad was smacking the dog around in the back yard earlier. The dog is so sweet and friendly and trusting and the dad is constantly hitting her or yanking her around by her chain, but any time she gets taken away the mother just goes to the shelter and gets her back. They just keep proving themselves to be terrible owners. Is there a way to stop someone from getting their dog back after it's taken away, or is it out of my hands once I call the Humane Society?

Hello, I hope TQC wisdom extends to matters of house sharing, 'cause I need answers/opinions:

(a) Our housemate gave us notice in mid December that he would be leaving in mid January. We said "fine" and began the hunt for a replacement, even meeting a few people in person at our place. Then a couple of nights ago he says, "oh yeah, I'm not moving out until mid March". Meanwhile, he brings nothing but a bad atmosphere that is *his* fault in the first place (he can't think past the end of his penis). What can we do to get him out??

(b) He told my other housemate to hurry up and do her chore for the week/fortnight (meanwhile he still hasn't done his) - the kitchen - because he's "having people over". She questions this, he backtracks and says it'll only be "a couple of people". Note: we will both be away interstate for Christmas / New Years. He came home from shopping today with two cases of beer and a box of bottles of wine. AM I CRAZY OR DOES ONE HAVE TO ASK BEFORE HAVING A HOUSE PARTY AT A SHARED HOUSE??????? He at this point has not even *mentioned* this to me. Do I ask what the deal is and then say we do not agree to there being a party at our house when we will not be there and he hasn't even asked permission and he's a dickhead who has no judgement capabilites when he has alcohol in his system? And then do I also inform the authorities that the occupants of this house have not consented to a party being held here and ask them to drive by New Years Eve??

Edit: He and I are both on the lease equally. It's a year-long lease that ends in mid March.

I left my christmas shopping till the last minute..

I bought this very cool remote control airplane, but I don't know whether to give it to my Dad or my Brother.. he's kind of into gadgety things and he might find it rather amusing (he loves kites if that makes any difference?) I was trying to think of something that's not exceptionally dad-boring-usual kind of present. However i'm thnking he'll either think its fun or be like... wtf?

My brother is 14 and would probably like it for five minutes or so, maybe it's not cool enough? It would be safer to give it to him though. At least he'll pretend to like it!

If I gave it to my brother I'd get my dad an expensive bottle of wine- boring.

So, Who shall i give the plane to.. Dad or Brother?

I was going to give this particular piece to my grandparents for Christmas, but now I am kind of ashamed of my error. Should I just give it to them anyway since they don't know Latin and it's likely not many people who come to their house do either?

3. Should I call him before I most likely fall asleep?

4. I have green and black hair. Would it be too Christmassy to wear a red and gray striped sweater?

Cloverfield

What do you think Cloverfield will be about?

Voltron? Cthulhu? Some new monster? Giant Barbara Streisand v Giant Robert Smith? Maybe they'll never show the monster, ever?

Adium

I've heard from multiple people that Adium is the best messenger to use on my macbook, especially since I would ideally like to run both AIM and Yahoo through the same program...

I downloaded it and was loving it for about a week and all the sudden it started freezing up when I start the program. I uninstalled all of the extras that I was running in the program and it still kept freezing. I uninstalled it and re-installed with no fix to the problem...

Has anyone else experienced this? Any ideas how to get it to work properly? Any suggestions on a better program to use?

distract me!

Okay, in the movie Slither (which apparently none of you have seen), a guy says "she packs a boxed lunch" to imply that a woman is a lesbian. Has TQC heard this used before? What are some other euphemisms for being a lesbian?

Today I came out to one of my coworkers and then ran away before she could react because I was nervous.
She later came to see me and gave me a half price ticket to a lapdancing club as some sort of show of acceptance.

How do you handle the death of non-dog, non-cat or non-bird pets? (eg: hamsters, rats, ferrets, guinea pigs, fish - the pets that aren't as major in most families as cats and dogs).

I just lost three of my fish and I've found myself crying embarrassingly - am I dumb for getting upset over the loss of them? They lasted me nearly a year and I'd gotten admittedly besotted.

adoption

Is adoption "wrong"?

To clarity a friend of mine thinks it's wrong and doesn't understand how anyone can love a kid when it's not "theirs". 

I myself feel a bit offended because I am adopted and my mom always thinks of me as her real daughter. I think of her as my real mom because a parent is someone who raises a child and loves them, right?
