Can you recommend a good Northern California winery?

When you buy wine from a store, what do you usually buy?


ETA:  I highly recommend V. Sattui if you're ever in the Northern California area.  I would like to visit others though... which is why I'm asking.  =)

Would you be sad if someone you only knew online passed away?

One of my friends from World of Warcraft lost his battle with cancer this afternoon and I feel sad even though I never "really" met him. :(

And before anyone brings it up: no, it's highly unlikely he faked his own death. I also play with his wife, his sister, and his dad, and several of his "real life friends."


Have you played Peggle? It's a Popcap game, but I'm too lazy to post a link.

If not, will you try it?

Is it not the most addictive game ever?

Wanna play with me?

My roommates are having a party, and I just got home and everybody's already drunk (I'm sober). It's only midnight. I just sprained my ankle. Should I awkwardly hang out sober? Get drunk and party? Or stay in my room and ice my poor foot (it's really swollen)?

Online RX

Ok guys, flame away all you like but...

I need muscle relaxants. BADLY. For some reason (though I am young) my back/shoulder muscles are EXTREMELY TENSE all the time. It causes me a lot of pain.

Have you ever tried ordering pills online? Any website recommendations? Does this actually WORK? I'm afraid I'll get rat poison rather than Skelactin. Know what I mean?

Yeah guys, I have health insurance. But guess what? No actual MD will prescribe muscle relaxants to ANYONE except old people thanks to drug addicts.

whiskey sours

Hmm so Ive been searching the 'net from the easiet recipe for a whiskey sour...found one that was just sweet n sour mix and whiskey, easy enough. My question to you all is what brand of whiskey and sweet and sour mix should I buy? I dont know any brands at all...except Jack Daniels.

I just recalled an image from my childhood, and I think it's from either a movie or a TV show.

A little girl gets a balloon hat placed on her head (I think it has a tail or something) by an adult who made it. There might be a little boy too. It's a prize, or something special. There might have been balloon bracelets/gloves too, but I might be overthinking that.

I'm 20, so somewhere from ten to fifteen years ago I saw this and was struck by this balloon hat concept.

Does anyone have an inkling of what this image in my brain might be from?

1. For those of you who take your laptop to the bathroom... What do you do to keep the computer from burning your legs? Mine is sitting on my lap right now and it's sorta warm through jeans... I can't imagine how hot it would be to rest on bare skin.

2. For everybody... have you ever been to a sex toys party? How about a Tupperware, Pampered Chef, or Mary Kay party? Have you been to parties featuring products other than these? What was the product? For any product (including those I listed)... will you tell me about the party?

3. For everybody again... what's the coolest death scene you've seen, from any movie? Coolness can be measured by drama, blood&guts, comedy, filmography, etc. The "Don't Stop Me Now" scene from Shaun of the Dead doesn't count... so there. Nanny nanny boo-boo.

I just drank way too much wine (like five or six glasses). I knew that it would make me miserable, and I knew I would end up throwing up before the night was over. Why do I have no self-control? (Not just the wine, but I can't help but pick at every scab I have, for example--doesn't matter that I know it'll leave an ugly scar). Do you have self-control?

I'm sorry this is one of those drunk posts. I never wanted to be this person. :(

Which would you rather be?

A man is married for some number of years with some number of kids in a nice house in a nice neighborhood with a nice car and a nice job.....but he has a mistress.

The wife doesn't know. She thinks their lives are perfect and she is pleasantly happy with her life.

The mistress knows and she feels sensual and desirable but knows he goes home to another woman at night.

The man is conflicted. He loves both women equally but differently. He doesn't want to lose his lifestyle or his wife or break up his family. But the mistress provides excitement and passion.

Sorry for the double post..
this will be the last one today

When is the last *memorable* time you slept/made out with someone?
Do you daydream about sleeping with someone?
How often?
What about dreams?

I have slept with two people since I broke up with my ex and they were quite hilarious drunken romps, but they had no emotion in them whatsoever. 
Every so often I daydream about making out/sleeping with someone ( a crush, the ex), maybe once every couple of weeks.

I've been having more vivid dreams. It's strange because in my conscious life I've been pretty unhorny lately but I have crazy dreams and wake up wondering what's going on. I even dream about sleeping with people who I definitely don't want to! weird..

Today I went to the South Florida Fair. They had an exhibit behind a tent called "The World's Smallest Woman" with a tape playing saying things like "Only 29 inches tall!! Feet the size of bottlecaps!" It was one dollar to get in, and the booth promised my money back if it wasn't a real human. I paid the dollar because I honestly didn't believe it would be a real person. I got into the exhibit and sitting on a stool was a well-dressed black little person looking very disgruntled, rolling her eyes. I didn't get a very good look because I hauled ass out of there, I felt so disgusted with myself and the entire concept of it. Unbelievable.
Have you ever been to a "freak show"? What was there? How did you feel while viewing it and how did the "freaks" react to you, if at all?

I also saw "the world's largest horse" and "the world's smallest horse".

What criteria/policy do do newspapers and magazines use when transcribing quotations of imperfect speech? In other words, what is the general policy that decides when to do a non-verbatim transcription and to what extent (for all levels of imperfect speech)?

I ask in the context of people who did not speak something perfectly either by mispronouncing something, rephrasing things mid-sentence to make sense, using bad grammar or by other forms of imperfect speech.

Kitten poll!

Poll #1123936 What to do with tricky kittens?

It looks like a cat & her two kittens have decided that my patio is a nice place to live -- we first saw them out there last night, and they were all curled up in my chair this AM.

Eek, wild cats!
Aw, cute!
They are leaving diseases all over your patio, you know.
Well, your patio looks like a nice nest.

What should I do about the kittens & cat? I already have one very nice, healthy, mostly indoors and skittish cat.

Adopt the cat, and both of her kittens
Adopt one kitten
Adopt both kittens
Catch them all and turn them into animal control/humane society
Just keep shooing them
Put a fence up around the patio
Find homes for them
Something else (explain in comments, please?)

And since you're so nice to take my poll, how's your day starting out?

Edit: I live in a SoCal apartment community and am 99% positive that these cats are feral, do not belong to anyone.  There are a TON of cats around here.

Horses found malnourished, removed from owner's care.

1. Is it really all that hard to take care of horses to the point where their ribs and hipbones aren't showing?

2. What should happen to the (hopefully) former owner of these horses? Is the impending jail time/fine appropriate? Or should he face something steeper?

Thanks in advance! :)

Which would you rather?

Scenario A:   You and your husband lose your virginity to each other. You have 3 kids with him. He gives you the option of working or staying at home with them. You have a few nice things and you have no problem paying the bills. BUT... you know he doesn't love you. You know he only married you because he thought that you were his only option and he is with you now solely for the sake of your children. You know he is not attracted to you or interested in you in any way.

Scenario B: You have a fiance whom you live with. He was previously married. (You were not) He has to pay a rather large amount in child support every month, plus you have your regular bills, which you are almost always behind on. He works approximately 70 houirs a week, and you have to go to school and work, both full time. You're both under an extreme amount of stress, which sometimes affects your relationship. BUT... you know that he is madly in love with you. He wants you to have your dream wedding and he feels bad that he doesn't have more to offer you at the moment.

EDIT: You are completely in love with the man, in both scenarios.

I'm asking this because it's quiet and I'm slightly bored, not really because I want to start wank* - I'm more just honestly curious.

You go out to eat with a friend/date, and you pay (the whole bill).  The server is pleasant, prompt and accurate with everything - iow, quite adequate service.  The total bill comes to $30 - how much are you personally going to tip? 
Also, where do you live (because I know it varies by area)?

To be clear, in this scenario you have no reason not to leave a tip, and I'm curious to know how much the amounts might differ by person and area.
if you don't live in a country with customary tipping, feel free to skip this one or imagine what you'd tip if you were visiting in the US and eating out.

*I don't care to debate the practice of tipping - I'm just asking about theoretical amounts.

What do you think of people who pierce their kids ears at a very young age? As in before they have any real say in whether or not they actually want it.

I saw a little girl who isn't even a year old this afternoon with very red and very obviously newly pierced ears. She kept waving her hands around her face as if she was trying to figure out what the hell just happened to her and I couldn't help but feel bad for her. I know for some it's cultural and I'm not begrudging anyone their tradition- but I know the mother in passing and the only culture she's a part of is white trash and I suspect the only reason she did it is so the girl will look more girly and cute.

When I dislike someone, I get into this intense inner conflict with myself. Then because of that, I try to get to know the person that I dislike more...to try to understand that person more so I can allieviate my dislike for him or her, even if my reasons for disliking that person is a "good" reason.

Also, if most people dislike someone, I feel more inclined to get to know the disliked person more than anyone else in the room. It's like I'm scared that I'll subconsciously accept everyone else's lowered opinion of that person.

I don't even know why I do this...

I am generally really liberal on the subject of censorship. I don't think TV should be censored, or movies, or anything like that. There are plenty of devices for parents to use to tailor what their kids can watch on TV, and they can avoid what they don't want to personally see for moral/religious/whatever reasons. But today, I was eating at a restaurant with my friend, and 2 tables away from us, there were 6 sorority girls (I am not stereotyping, they had sweaters/shirts on, all 6 of them) and 1 boy. This is a family Mexican restaurant, with about 10 or 15 tables sat, most of them have kids at the tables. These college kids start screaming and fighting, telling each other to fuck off, and basically screaming every obscenity I can think of. I nearly went over and told them to calm down, because their were kids in the restaurant, and it was a family establishment, not a shitty restaurant on campus or a bar.

3. Is there anything out there that can make the gui look sorta like windows xp to sooth my frantic soul?
3b. Or should I just suffer and get used to it?
4.Are you one of the people who are great with a pc and can zip through and do all sorts of stuff, but become a semi idiot when dealing with the mac?

I still have my pc because all of CS3 is on there and I didn't want to have to buy the mac versions (meh) and at the moment I am resiting the urge to switch over to it. :(

A couple of wedding questions

I have a couple of wedding related questions I wonder if anyone can give me a hand with.

1. If you use a justice of the peace to officiate your wedding, will they travel to your wedding location, or are they confined to a courthouse wedding?

2. Does your marriage license have to be issued in the county in which you live, or the county in which the marriage is taking place?

3. If indeed it IS possible to get a justice of the peace to travel to your wedding site, do they have to be from the county in which you live, or the county in which the wedding is taking place?

These are pretty n00bish questions I know, but I would appreciate any help all the same.

Thank you in advance!

Dear TQC,

Is sharing your clean socks with someone else gross? If so, how gross?

Do you think it's unethical to read letters of recommendation written about oneself if you have the opportunity? Would you do it anyway?

So let's say I'm interested in moving out of home for the first time. Getting an apartment, a housemate, all that jazz.

None of my friends are on the lookout for a housemate at the moment, so I'm reduced to looking through 'Housemate Wanted!' ads. When I go to meet these people, and see their apartments...how can I tell that they're not serial killers who invite people to live with them, only to kill them on the first night and steal all their stuff? Basically, how can I not end up with a psycho housemate?

Tips and tricks from people who've been there? Also, any tips in general on moving out for the first time?

How do you handle someone who goes through a bunch of different phases per year, and during these phases thinks that this new product/lifestyle choice/technique he's obsessed with is the *only* way to go about doing things for *everyone*, acts extremely righteous about this particular choice and tries to get everyone else to go along with it, and then after a few months gets over the phase and denounces it completely? Then, during his new phase, when someone points out that maybe it's not the be-all end-all of everything since he did a 180 on his last phase, he pretends like he never went through the last phase to begin with.

Do you know anyone like this?

Does anyone remember the question I asked about text message harassment last night?

Well, it ended up getting pretty bad... They kept me up for about another hour after that, sending me really obscene sexual messages. So basically, I'm pretty pissed.

EDIT: I was mostly joking around but I didn't mean to break any rules.

So, to still make me feel a little vindicated, does anyone feel like giving me some non-serious suggestions on how to get back at this person? I don't really intend on doing anything more about it, but it'll give me a little laugh.

Also, I'm already in the process of getting the number blocked on my phone.

Have you heard, tqc??  John McCain is the winner of the SC republican primary! 
Did you have a guess as to who would win?  Are you as excited as I am? (at least an 8 on a scale of 1-10)

Completely unrelated, do you know who Regis Philbin is?  If so, if you were asked about the person he liked most, who would you guess, other than the more obvious choices like his wife, family, or his co-host(s)?

Do you have a word that you absolutely detest? Not because of the meaning or connotation or, I don't know, bad associations-but you just really hate the sound of it? And it rends your soul to hear it? What is it? (mine, I think, is nipple. eeeugh.)

Do you have a word that you LOVE-again, cause of the sound of it, not the meaning or whatever? (mine is loins-as in "gird your loins" "fruit of my loins" ,etc... hahahaha!)


Why does the fucker just stand on his pad for five minutes when I place him there, but shits on the carpet the second he gets away!?

He's so cute he could poop in my mouth but I want it on the PAD!

On January 4th, I won an item on eBay for $6. I paid it like 4 days after the bid was over...and I still haven't gotten the product yet. I e-mailed the seller twice asking what the deal was...but he/she never responded back. Should I report them for the item I never received or should I wait until Wednesday or something...? I know it's really not a big deal because it's only $6...but I'm broke and I'd regret it if I paid for nothing.

I just noticed my hard drive making clucking noises.  In addition, mysterious lag out of no where, especially when those sounds are happening.  I'm going to back up everything as best I can.

Houses and Jobs

For those who own houses - for how long did you rent after graduation before you bought a house? Why? (Need to save up, wanted to be more mobile, etc)

What is the best online job search that you've had success with? If I want to move out of where I live after I graduate, is that the best option to find a job in another place?

What did you have for dinner?

And TQC, will you cheer me up with some cute pictures that you like?
My new year has been beyond terrible. I was rear-ended when I was stopped and pushed into another car, so now I have no car to get to school in less than two weeks (not to mention a car for just getting around); my parents have also proclaimed their undying hatred for my boyfriend and the fact that we met online and inevitably kicked him out of the house (he was staying at my place for a week to visit), and now my puppy is sick.
