Best Friendz 4EVR

TQC, I don't feel like calling my bff tomorrow to see if he wants to hang out because he's been iffy lately and I hate calling people when I don't think they want me to call. If he was a true friend he would call me, right? Should I call him tomorrow or assume he hates me and cut him out of my life entirely? Pls advise.

Who is your bff? How did you meet/become bffs? Pics? Anecdotes? Do they read your mind and call you when you want to hang out with them? Am I being needy?

Has anyone here (or anyone you may know of) eloped? Where did you go? How did you celebrate it? What was your families' reactions (or the families' reactions of the people you know)? I'm just curious. Thanks in advance!

I struggle with my weight.
I'm 145 pounds, 5'7.
I eat right and workout 3 or 4X a week.

I've been thinner but it requires enormous calorie restriction.
I've been bigger but I'm frankly not impressed with how much work I have to do to get mediocre results.

My question is:
Should I just try to stop caring and eat whatever I want?
(The consequence being I will get bigger and probably less satisfied with how I look, but I won't be so boring and obsessed by numbers.)
Also for the women out there, does it ever get easier?
Do you ever stop caring?

I kind of now the answers to these questions but I guess I need to know that other people also struggle with their weight like I do.

My laptop won't start. When it was last on the battery was at roughly 30% when I shut it off. I went to turn it on and it's not turning on.
The light that says that the computer is plugged in isn't flashing when it should be since it IS plugged in.

You guys got any ideas what's going on and what I should do?

So a good friend of yours (we'll call them D) has, for the past month, managed to cancel on you every time you made plans to hang out, which totals about five. Each time, they've canceled to hang out with another friend. This friend is ranked equally with you (meaning neither one of you is the best friend of D). D prefers members of the gender opposite that of the friend they have been hanging out with, neither person drinks or does drugs, and neither person is especially rich, which rules out that D is using them for sex, drugs, alcohol, or money. Neither one drives, either. D broke plans that were made to make up for breaking plans earlier that week. Several times you have declined other offers to go out because you were under the impression that you would be with D.

TQC, would you give D the big fuck you, or continue to put up with their shit?

1. Non-Australians, have you shipped anything to Australia? Was it expensive?

The reason I ask is I just sold some boots on eBay, and the auction indicated it would cost $10 to ship to the US. Well, I just received payment from the winner and it turns out they live in Australia.

Ugh.

Edit: I'm going to find out costs tomorrow, and will contact the buyer to let him know he'll have to pay the rest of the shipping costs, or I'll issue him a refund.

2. For those of you who collect things, what do you collect?

Sex Toys

Have you ever bought a sex toy online? If so, can you tell me some online shops that are reliable and fast in delivery (it's not that I don't want to get it 'as soon as possible,' I just don't want to shop at one of those places that take weeks to process)?

And, which one(s) did you buy? Give me the name, the URL, or the description... something that I can use to check out the product. Do you know a really good one for G-Spot stimulation? Or a vibrator that doesn't make a really loud buzzing noise?

And, TQC, do you know where to buy gay sex porn DVDs? Most places sell straight stuff or lesbian porn. But, where to get the gay stuff?

Have you ever been in so much pain, that you have almost like a religious experience/start pleading with a god you don't believe in? And making promises that have nothing to do with said pain?

I just spent the last 2.5 hrs praying to throw up because my stomach has never felt so wretched in my entire life.

I've never been so fucking thankful in my life.

And for the record, I don't know what was wrong with my stomach, I didn't eat any meat (salmonella), anything unusual, anything in excess, or consume any type of alcohol, and I don't feel sick otherwise or haven't prior to this.

Weird.

for those who are married...


1. Is your wedding ring brand new (as in right from the jewler) or is it not so much (as in specially designed/modified from an old ring or piece of jewlery, or like a grandmother's / relative's ring recycled)?

2. Was the cost of the ring / size of the ring an important thing to you?

3. How long have you been married?

3b. Does your significant other wear their ring? (I know some guys just dont like wearing their ring even if they are sublimely happy in marriage)

4. Do you think its more significant for a woman not to wear her wedding ring or a man not to wear his?

4b. If a guy stops wearing his wedding ring and hasn't worn it for over a month is this coincidence or is it a sign that he's losing interest in his marriage?

ETA: in regards to 4b after everyone has said maybe he takes it off for work ect. His job is not as such that he would need to nor does he and its been pretty much superglued to his hand since becoming married

not on the Big Screen first

There is a very little known thing in movies that is so rare, as far as I know, that I suspect most people don't know about it. In fact, before starting to do this I did a little research about the only instance I knew just to confirm it, which was tricky as I didn't know the name of it and all I could recall was the lead female actor, but it turns out my memory was working fine. As stated, this is the only one I'm aware of and I'm posting this to see if anyone knows about any others.

You probably know of Linda Fiorentino through any number of films, she's been in a lot and is very recognizable. I like her, she makes me all warm in my happy places. She once did a movie called The·Last·Seduction which I originally saw on late night HBO but was stunned a bit after that when it popped up in theaters...

...a movie that came out on the small screen first.

Do you know of any other movies that came out to cable or was rentable before it was on the Big Screen?

Cloverfield and Spasms.

deeeaaar everyone,

1. About that Cloverfield movie...Does anyone know what the monster is yet? If yes, do tell. Also, I read the newspaper yesterday and it recieved a rather poor review...so I don't think I want to see it..but it's killing me not knowing what the monster thing is. What did you think of it if you've seen it?

2. Recently, I started doing Pilates at home..only very light, beginner stuff...but the point is, I keep geting spasms in my legs which prevent me from stretching them in certain positions....Does anyone know if anything can fix spasms? I mean, I'm going to try beat them by stretching very very lightly in the bad places and then building up to how it's meant to be, but...is there something I can do to actually rid myself of them?

(If you intend to go and see Cloverfield and don't want it spoiled for yourself, maybe you shouldn't view the comments that may come from this post...)

I was supposed to have to day off, but my boss changed his mind, so I'm at a closed office and bored.

OK, so guys. I have kind of a problem. My friend Chris works here at my house during the week, cleaning the yard up and feeding the cats and cleaning their litterboxes. He was working here on saturday, cleaning up the yard and stuff. I was here before he left, but then I left to go pick up my boyfriend so we could go to a concert. I got a phone call from him on the way to picking my boyfriend up telling me that he lost his watch.

So, TQC- Where's Chris' watch?

dreams

last night I dremt (sp?) about being in a car and driving into a flooded road.
then while I was napping just now I dremt about being in a lake that had too much water, and this time I was on a peir that was mostly underwater, I slipped and fell in and had to struggle to get my clothes off so I wasn't weighted down. Then I was able to climb out safely.

Gardening

My fiance and I are moving into an old remodeled farmhouse up in the middle of Bumfuck Nowhere, NY in March 1st. One of the perks of our new house is 20 acres of property that we get to do essentially whatever we want with. We want to start growing our own vegetables, but having grown up on Long Island where the soil is poisonous we don't have any expereince.

TQC, can you recommend any books on gardening for beginners?

Or any resources, really.

What would you do with 20+ acres of property?

We've got a pond and a stream, so we're covered for swimming and fishing. :)

Stuff to do

So, my best friend is coming back and when he does, he'll be 'homeless'. He was seriously considering sleeping in his car, or trying to bring a tent with him on the plane. As a result, he's staying with us. (and just to make it easier for him since he has no flat right now). He'll be looking for a flat/unit straight away but it's going to take him a while, at least a week I'm imagining.
Before he left he was hanging out with me every day, for three weeks. Before that it was more three or four times a week. For hours on end usually as well. But, we always had some time by ourselves every day, even if it was just a few hours between him going home at 3 am and me going to his house at 11 am.
Now he'll be sleeping in our family room, we'll be doing the cooking for the family, and I can't like, just wander off to my room for a bit because he has no where to wander to himself. [if we were *living* together, I doubt any of this would be a problem, but it's like... no way to really get away from each other... ]
 We'll both be looking for houses, he wants me to go with him to see them.
Now, the question is... what are some things we can do to keep ourselves entertained so we're not just sitting around going 'oh my god i'm so bored' and start getting bored with each other? What can I offer him as things to do while I'm I dunno, in the shower or doing household chores? Where are some places we can go to get out of the house for a change of scene? Any other ideas?

We've never fought, and I'm only rarely pissed off at him and it's n ot from seeing him too much it's from some stupid things he's said while not thinking. And I am terrified that ... something will go wrong with this situation. I'm really looking forward to him coming actually.

What's your worst roommate story?

My roommate borrows my clothes, then goes to bars and brings home random guys while pretending to be me. She pretends to have my job and tells them stories that I've told her before. I thought it was funny the first time, but I guess it's working out for her because she's done it 2 more times in the last month. It doesn't really affect me in any way, but it's getting kind of weird. I don't know what to do about it. What would you do?

Eating

I woke up this morning and am much lighter than yesterday so I want a bagel with peanut butter!!!

damn you, Michigan

I did my taxes yesterday and apparently H&R Block is holding my return hostage in a "secure data center" until the government will process it in February. This is because I claimed an education credit and Congress hasn't settled the Alternate Minimum Tax garbage, so for some reason those things are connected and I don't get my dolla dolla billz immediately. I also ended up owing the state, which has never happened before. I made less than I did last year but I'm now divorced so that's probably got something to do with it. WTF, taxes. I don't get you.

Any tax surprises for you this year?
If you're getting a refund, how much will it be?

My federal refund is $2005 and I owe $104 to the state.

My laptop display isn't working properly - the bottom third of the screen is all distorted and looks like it is smeared. It's totally unworkable. However, if I hook a RGB cable from my tv to the laptop, it displays just fine on the TV.

Roughly what percentage of the music you listen to on a regular basis is in English (or your native language)?

Do you enjoy music more if you understand the lyrics?


About 20% for me, which is pretty sad considering my entire music collection is about 90% English. I like music better when I can understand the lyrics, but I don't pay attention even if I do unless I'm really focusing, so it's not a huge deal. I should add that I mostly understand French music, which is a huge portion of the non-English music I listen to. The rest is mostly Portuguese, which I don't understand.

i've come to realize that i don't drink enough water. not just the daily recommended 8 cups of water or whatever, there are days where i go with drinking barely a glass of water. i don't drink much anything else either, i don't drink soda, and i barely drink tea or coffee. it's starting to show since i'm constantly tired and i'm starting to have killer migraines and everyone i have talked to has told me that it is probably attributed to the fact that i'm dehydrated.

so tqc, i come to you to ask, how do i keep myself hydrated and make myself drink more water? it's not that i don't want to drink it, i just don't ever feel the need to. one of my friends suggested that i buy a camelback and REI and strap it to myself so i always have water and will be forced to drink it. i don't want to go that far though.

Would it be wrong of me to put my foot into the speakers if she continues this behaviour? (It is actually the stereo that we bought before she moved in with us, so I wouldn't be destroying anything of hers.)

Ability to petition

I work in the corporate office of a retail chain in Texas.  Today, they broke the news to us that they are integrating us with another team and are taking away our manager, whom we all adore.  She has brought a lot of positive changes to our team and has greatly raised the job satisfaction of our team members.  We are discussing the option of writing a petition, getting all of our signatures on it, and presenting it to the higher-ups to reconsider this decision.

In your opinion, how effective would this petition be, and what is the likelihood of us all losing our jobs over it?

What does it mean to be an understudy for the lead?

That you weren't good enough to be in the actual performance unless necessary?

Or that you're good enough to almost be the lead?

Because if you were an understudy for the lead, it must mean you're really good...but why wouldn't you have an actual part?

Bother

Does it bother you when someone calls you the wrong name? Like someone that you work with?

Do you get a little/lot annoyed when you call your SO and they don't answer?

Me, usually no, but today it happened and for some reason I keep thinking about it.

and

Sometimes, if I really need to talk to him. I also understand he is busy though. I just called to see if he wants anything from the store and he didn't answer.

 One of my managers opened the other day and went home when I got to work.  However, he came back at ten and when I saw him he had a poster, then he left with this projectionist chick.

What are they up to?

Question:
I can't get onto this forum that I run. I seem to be the only one this is a problem for. The server times out. I can get onto the other forums that the guy who is hosting mine is hosting as well. What the heck is going on and what can I do about it? It's been doing this for about six hours.
edit: problem solved!

If you've ever been a bridesmaid, what costs were you expected to cover?

How much does it typically cost to dye shoes to match a dress (the bride wants them dyed)?

If you had a bridal shower for the bride, how much money did you pitch in as a bridesmaid (if any) to cover shower costs?

The bride is not being picky about our hair, but all the other bridesmaids are going to a salon to get theirs styled. Should I do the same so I don't look like the odd one out?

I'm a bridesmaid for the first time, so I don't know what's really expected of me. The bride is my sister and all the other bridesmaids are friends with each other (so I'm already feeling like the odd one out even though I've met most of the girls a couple times).

How can I make all this less awkward for myself? These are all very girly girls and very outgoing. I'm more of a tomboy and rather shy, especially in situations where I don't really know the people.

Thanks!

What is it called when the government sends out checks to people in hopes that they will spend the money immediately and boost the economy?

edit: tax rebate http://business.timesonline.co.uk/tol/business/columnists/article3228105.ece?openComment=true

edit again: for the tl;dr

He wants the Internal Revenue Service to mail out rebate cheques to all taxpayers. The Administration hasn’t publicly put a number on the plan yet, but officials say they are thinking about $800 for individuals and $1,600 for families. In total that would inject about $150 billion (£77 billion) into the US economy. That represents about 1.2 per cent of gross domestic product, a not insignificant amount. If Congress can get its act together, that would be in people’s pockets some time over the summer, perhaps just as the slump is really starting to hurt.

A proposal doing the rounds on Capitol Hill would reduce or eliminate the rebate for people earning more than $85,000 a year. It would also find ways to get money to people who pay no taxes, as they would gain nothing from a rebate. Democrats also want to increase spending, perhaps with some money aimed specifically at the moribund housing market

Sooo...what's your "true" sign?

Your astrological sign was determined by the position of constellations 2200 years ago. Over time, Earth has tilted on its axis changing these positions...and maybe even your astrological sign!

Am I the only one seeing arrows next to comments?


Also, I have basically decided that I am going to by a laptop with my refund moneys. But I has a problem, I dunno where to buy one,AND I don't know what specifications I'm looking for. I'm looking for one that will be good for net surfing, e-mail, picture editing, movie watching, the occasional online game and fic writing.

What specifications should I be looking for?

I could get it off overstock.com but am not sure which are the best deals.
But I could also get one from walmart.com because I get a discount and they have free site to store which would totes save on s/h. yay that.
Then there is usanotebook.com which looks good too...but argh... this is why I needs yalls haylp!!

Is a refurbished laptop and  bad  thing? Just wondering.
What specifications should I be looking for?
Is it possible to get a really good laptop for under 1,000 dollars?
What is the oddest compliment you've ever gotten?
I had a customer see me standing at the door (I was door greeting that night) and she sighed heavily and said. "Ugh, I don't want to go shopping now. My favorite cashier isn't on a register." ^_^ kinda made my day. Okay so it's not really odd, but cashiers don't get complimented at all very often so meh....

I have a friend who never really bothered to put much effort in to our friendship or anything in life. I sponsored her for The Race for Life event, after being reminded on about 8 occasions. I never heard anything about it and looking on her journal I found that she postponed it so that she could go to a Formula one open day or something. Then the day of the event there was only an entry about getting drunk and being felt up by some guy.

I sent here the following text, "one thing has bugged me. Did you ever do the race for life thing"r.

The response I received was, "interesting that you didn't just ask me before now about something that bugged you so much also flattering that you should assume it would be related to laziness. I could have run the 5km of road on my own i suppose. No i haven't bothered  to do it yet. Because of the floods it was postponed till earlish next year. Do you really wonder why i don't miss you?"

I called the charity and the event hadn't been postponed. So I asked them by text about it, and they blocked me(and my girlfriend) on every website. What do you think of this person? And what would you do - let it go, demand the money back or let everyone else who sponsored them know?

underwear!

My coworker told me he thinks most people wear white underwear only. He said this applies to both guys and girls. I do not have any plain white underwear, I only have a few pairs that are white at all and they have some kind of print on them.

Do you wear strictly white underwear? Mostly white underwear?
