What was the last thing you got excited about?


I just found out that on my colleges library, I can listen to Naxos for free. Being the music nerd I am, I looked up all my favorite pieces and have been listening to them non-stop.

I have a little spot in the corner of my mouth that's been feel a little sore and irritated for the past couple of days. Today it looks a little red. How can I tell if it's a cold sore or not? I've never had one before :\

I like playing around with makeup. I usually just use some neutral browns if I have the time to do my makeup, but my sister got me a set of eyeshadows that has some pretty (and not too extreme, surprisingly) colors. Which color should I try out tomorrow?
(1) fishnet: somewhat bright purple/pink (2) honey: shimmery gold (3) ransom: close to indigo (4) graffiti: somewhat bright green (5) zero: black (6) peace: a peacock-like blue (7) shag: light bronze (8) scratch: shimmery peach/pink (9) underground: a cooler shade of light brown

Feelings...

Have you ever had a perfectly fine day, no major drama, and by the end of it, you sit down and become suddenly totally enraged and want to lash out at things, or totally depressed and hopeless and very loathsome to do it all again the next day?

Why does this happen?

shoplifting game show

Would you ever willingly be on a game show like this?

Basically there are 2 people and they are each given some type of shoplifting mission (ex. car from car wash, 6 dildos & 6 dvds, suit, everything off the table at a restaurant). Obviously the goal is not getting caught.

EDIT: If you were caught you would get in the same trouble as you would if it weren't part of the game show. If you weren't caught you'd be able to keep the items.

What community do you hate most?

Which one do you like most?

Do you watch any comms just because they're amusing, even if they take themselves very seriously?

I have a strange fascination with multiplicity, and I can't figure out why. All of the members are just so delightfully quirky and odd.

So commercial

There's a commercial airing here for an insurance company (I think) where these two guys come out and sort of "rap" the slogan: "Roadway covers your butt...all night long." The first ten times I heard this commercial, I could have swore they were saying "Roadway up your butt..."

What's something you misheard?

2)How is your health?

3)Do you think a person's health is mostly under their control?

Not really- people get cancer, broken bones or other issues even when they are taking good care of their health

Toyota commercial

There's this Toyota commercial on now where this group of people drive out to a field and take turns rolling down it in these giant inflatable plastic bubble things. I think the slogan is  "Make Tuesday a Saturday" or something like that.
Does anyone know what these bubble things are? Or if/ where I can find one? They look like so much fun.

Ok, so I was invited to lunch by a lady I work with. My boss and I are both going. It's always a good time.
But, today being the primaries, I know it will come up and I know exactly who they are both voting for. I am voting for someone else.

What would you do if you were me and politics came up in conversation. I am 99.99% sure it will.

Do I just nod and smile? I don't care to discuss it with them, they are the kind of people that think if you don't vote for who they vote for you are WRONG!

Do you know anything about matching colors?  Apparently, I shame my sex, because I can't do it.  So I need some help

I have an assignment, and it has to be on paper that is this color:
 
The color of the font I use on it has to look REALLY good on this color (it's not for an art class, my teacher is just insane).  Right now I'm using this blue, if only to be able to get my actual work done and worry about the color later:

Needless to say, it looks really bad.  What should I use instead?

Hypothetical: Your friend is ill and has swollen tonsils among other symptoms. She has no health insurance and going to the hospital or a doctor is not an option. You have a bottle of penicillin leftover from when you had the same symptoms a few weeks ago. The antibiotics were given to you to take until your strep test came back. Since it was negative, you were told you could stop taking them. Even though it's probably illegal, do you offer your leftover antibiotics to her?

And no, she's not allergic. She has been prescribed penicillin many times in the past.

My cousin has been recruited to have an "internship" this summer in Chicago through which he would be going door-to-door selling security systems, Monday-Friday, noon-dark. Apparently the average person makes 9000 dollars in a summer. You stay in an apartment building the company has rented out and pay reduced rent. I guess you have to sell two security systems a month for this thing to be worthwhile.

Anyone have any experience in doing something like this? Know anyone who has done something like this? I think it's a somewhat common technique. Any warnings about this?

If you don't want kids, why did you make that decision?

lame questions

1.) I'm currently designing my wedding invitations, and it's all good in the hood, except for this one bit that just plain don't sound real good in mah brain: "Crystal ____ and Mike ____ invite you to share in their joy as they wed, on Saturday the blah blah blah." I'm a moron when it comes to writing anything, so can you think of something 8 words or less that doesn't sound quite so awkward as "as they wed"? Or is that fine as is?

And while we're on the subject..

2.) What are some words we can put on our favors that aren't the usual boring crap like "love" and "devotion"?

Good afternoon TQC,

I skipped going to lunch today because it's rainy, dreary and depressing out. And I don't want to eat lunch alone ... again.

So I have a question for you:

Do you often eat lunch alone or with a friend or group of friends?

If you eat lunch alone regularly, do you enjoy it or dread it?

What can I do to not dread it so much?

Or maybe I should just find some new friends who have the same free block of time to each lunch with every day!

Dear TQC

I think I am dying. I went and got some mroe airborne and some fruit drops and stuff, but I still feel like crap. I'm going to the doctor tomorrow, but please help me figure out a way to write a one page paper, responses to two stupid questions, 5 questions testing knowledge and abilities of situational leadership theory and study for a quiz all while stuffing envelopes and surfing TQC at work and while feeling like I've been hit by a Mac truck. (no runny nose or horrible cough, just whole torso acheyness, much worse when I move around, and a slight cough that makes the torso pain feel like a million tiny knives are stabbing me. I'm also dizzy, confused, and sleepy as hell)

It is 1:13 pm, these things must be done by 5pm and I have class that goes until 9pm and then have to drive for an hour to get home after that. I've been up since 7 am and the longer I'm awake the crappier I feel. I can't really go home from work and come back because I live an hour away and by the time I get home I'd have to turn around and come back in another hour. I also don't think I have friends on campus who live here other than one or two who are in calss and unavaliable so I can't get their key and sleep in their room for a bit either...


So TQC, am I going to die? If I die then I won't pass my classes and that will make me sad. If I skip my assignments and quiz to go home and sleep I won't get an A in my class and that will make me sad too.

Ow. Ow. Ow.

I'm sure this culture-savvy, upbeat community has seen plenty of doctor shows. ER, House, Grey's Anatomy...

So, TQC, I'm asking for your assistance in an ongoing mystery involving a headache that I've had for close to three weeks now. It's just now getting terribly unbearable and I wonder if I should go to my doctor, even though I'm not covered under any plan yet [I'm working on it, but I don't know how long it'll take].

What I should tell you first is no medicine has worked. At all. Not migraine meds, not aspirin, not decongestants... nothing.

My symptoms:

-I am just getting over a cold, but my airways are completely clear right now and the headache started well before the cold showed up.
-My ears are clogged and I have to pop them to hear things like I'm not in a different room.
-The front of my head feels like it weighs 304234823 pounds, but there is a very localized pain behind my eyes and at my temples
-I'm crazy dizzy. I can walk, but I have trouble concentrating on things... like books. This is making homework and studying very difficult.

So what's my diagnosis, Docs?

Voting question

It's Super Tuesday, TQC, and later today I am going to vote in the California primary.

However, it just occurred to me that, although I think I'm registered with my party, I am not actually sure. I can't remember if I checked that box 2 years ago when I registered to vote in CA, and I am not at home so I can't look for my voter registration card.



How can I figure out if I'm a registered party member or not? Most of me thinks I did register with the party, but it's possible that I said I was an independent.

5. The slightly non-traditional lunch contents that were later superficially given the blanket 'ethnic food' branding?

6. The hardcore health food box with the carrot and celery sticks, bean sprouts, rice cakes and hommous that had you making friends with type 2 for your mutual survival?

Registery Cleaners

Last night I got sick of my computer being super slow, and a bum. So I asked a friend what the problem could be, they suggested a registery cleaner.

I did it, there are problems and come to find out I'd have to pay like forty dollars for the entire thing. Right now, I can't afford to shell out forty so I went on a hunt to find a different place.

I came across Errordoctor.com

It states that it been on cnn, well as other places for it's authenticity approval but I'm still not too sure.

Has anyone ever had experience with registery problems?
Can you suggest any helpful/authetinicated registery cleaner programs?
Has anyone used errordoctor.com?
Is it legit? (I'd hate to shell out twenty bucks, and find out it's nothing but a scam. Woe is me.)

I had second cousins named Lucinda, Lynne and Lisa and knew a family once that the kids were named Louann, Leroy, Laurie and Lisa. If so, what were the names? How about people who have rhyming names or gave their children rhyming names? My sister's best friend named her daughters Tara and Cara. Not that I'm saying there is something wrong with either of these methods of naming people, I'm just curious.

I start a new job March 1 that will reimburse me for health insurance, but I have to seek it out myself. This is pretty intimidating to me. I've been trying to read up on all the terms and kinds of insurance (PPO vs. HMO, etc) but really I'm not sure where to start looking for actual plans. Google came up with www.ehealthinsurance.com which is okay, but it only shows plans from a few companies and keeps timing out before it gives me recommendations based on the information I supplied. So...

What company do you use for health insurance? Do you recommend it?
Are there any that I should definitely stay away from?

Even if you are uninsured (like me currently) any input from past experiences would be appreciated.

So, I was amongst some of my geekier friends one night, and World of Warcraft was brought up as being lame. Now, this surprised me, because all of us play the game, and one of my friends in particular spends almost all of her free time on it. And yet she agreed with the original antagonist. And they weren't just joking around like we usually do about being geeks with no lives, and this bugged me. So, question is....

Have you ever had something similar happen? One of your friends putting down a mutual interest, in a serious manner? Did you just ignore it or did you have a stronger reaction, such as trying to argue with them?

New Old Computer

 I recently acquired a computer that's about 10 years old, but don't have an internet connection at home. I bought a flash drive so I could get a few things off the 'net from the library computer, but the home computer is too old to have a "device driver" for the flash drive. 

Apparenlty the version of Adaptec (2.5) I have is too old to write data/image CDs I jsut got from Stapels, or ready them to take info. 

Does anyone  have any insights and is there a computer oriented community somewhere where I could get some help?

1. I worked from January to May and November to December. I got married in August and listed myself as such on the forms for the last two months of the year. The question is, do I file as single or married for taxes this year?

2. I have an 8 year old male cat. For the majority of his life, he has gone outside when he needs to. This has worked out pretty well until recently. The neighbors downstairs bought a German shepherd puppy who does not like cats at all. She chases him when she's loose, searches frantically whenever she smells him outside, and barks whenever she sees him. Both my husband and I have had pets killed by German shepherds, so we're quite worried about this. He's afraid to go outside now, and has had several accidents indoors (something he hasn't done since he was a kitten). The dog's owner and I are planning to make another attempt at socializing the two, how should we go about doing it, if at all? Also, what are some ways to stop the indoor accidents without bringing back a litter box?

These questions assume you are a United States citizen, but there are a few farther down which will not:

1.) There is a biologoical/nuclear attack on a major city within the United States before the 2008 elections, which is declared to be a terrorist attack. Shortly thereafter, marshall law is declared, thus cancelling said elections. Dismissing the likelihood of this hypothetical situation, what is your first reaction?

2.) Let us get a bit more hypothetical. A month into marshall law a new security measure is being implemented from above: citizen verification chips, wherein small, GPS beacons with all personal and monetary information programmed into them are surgically implanted within citizens. Those who refuse are no longer members of the nation but enemy combatants. In order to work, drive, purchase goods using legal tender, you must have one of these chips. Do you get one?

3.) It has been three months since marshall law has been declared. War with Iran is underway. Concentration camps have been set up for those who have objected conscientiously against the administration. Are you chipped, obedient, and alive? Are you in the country still? Where have you gone? What are you doing, at this point?


For those living outside of the United States:
4.) How's life?

1. What do you know about the University of New Orleans? If you attended or know anyone who has, tell me alllllll about it please.

2. I have a cigarette burn right below my eyebrow (mardi gras gets dangerous). Is there anything i can do to speed the healing process, because it looks ridiculous as you can imagine. Will this leave a scar?!

Can someone please explain Collapse )

I got an e-mail saying she had to cut her ribs to look like that. It looks very obviously photoshopped, but do people actually do that to themselves? Ack!

EDIT: I thought she got surgery to look like that, I had no idea what corset training was or that corsets could make your waist look that thin. wow!

If given the choice to help decide who in your city would be rewarded the "key to the city" what qualities/qualifications do you think they should have? why?

i had a therapist a little while ago who was a male (i'm a heterosexual female). i don't see him anymore, but while i was seeing him, the meetings made me feel kind of uncomfortable. he was always very professional and a really nice guy, but i always felt like there was some sort of sexual tension between us..even though we were both in relationships and even though i wasn't attracted to him at all. i think it's because therapy itself is like a very intimate and revealing relationship minus sex or any sort of physical contact. have any of you who have been to therapy experienced this sort of weird tension too?

Duct Tape and Room Furnace Vents

My room was originally two rooms. Long story. What it has done is give my room a direct vent to the furnace/AC and one of the furnace/AC vents. This leaves my room twice affected by the furnace/AC, making it a little too warm in winter and a little too cold in summer. I have tried to close the vent, but the vent is old and rusted, and will not close to any noticeable degree. My mother has suggested covering the vent with duct tape.

Now for the question. Would the warm air running along the glue on the sticky side of the duct tape for a long while generate any health problems? I've searched Google and only found "using heat to remove duct tape glue" sites, a little too short-term for my tastes.

ETA: Said vent is on the ceiling, in case that affects some people's answers.

So last year I made a layer cake shaped like one of these candies. It was pink and said "BE MINE" on top. I was thinking of either doing the same thing this year, or making heart shaped sugar cookies and applying the same idea.

So what do you think I should make this year: cake or cookies? What colors and sayings should I use?

For those of you who have an SO, do you ever check out other people? Do you feel guilty about it?

OK, TQC, this is a long shot, but hey, who knows -- maybe there's a US postal employee in here. (Or at least someone who can navigate the USPS website better than I can!)

Does anyone know how long it would take a small package (a CD, to be exact) to go from Santa Monica, California (zip code 90404) to Nova Scotia (postal code B4P 2P2)? On the CanadaPost website there's a feature where you can input the origin zipcode and the destination zipcode and it will give you the approximate delivery standard. I'm not having much luck on the USPS site.

the following letters "face to the right"

the following letters "face to the left"

the following letters "face forward"

Do you agree with this assessment or do you think that ALL letters equally "face" either left or right or forward?

Thoughts pls.



If you agree with the above assessment, do you think that some words are stronger or weaker DIRECTLY IN RELATION to letters facing left or right?

What's the most you've ever paid to attend a concert/festival/show/other sort of entertainment event? What was it?

Edit: I asked because I was thinking about going to the Glastonbury Festival as my last sort of hurrah in Europe before I have to go back to the U.S. Transportation from Dublin to England is pretty cheap, so that's no so much of a concern, but apparently last year tickets cost £145 (they haven't even announced prices for this year yet), which sounds pretty sucky to me, especially once translated into $. Also, once I looked around the official website, it seems kind of...beurocratic and creepy. Like you have to pre-register to be eligible for a ticket and send them your photo and stuff. I didn't really want opinions on whether I should go or not (especially since now I'm leaning towards "no") I was just wondering why concerts are so ludicrously expensive.

Ok, so my mom's boss is a complete asshole.

Recently, a woman got fired (she worked for my mom) for being sloppy. For the recommendation, my mom's boss wrote she was fired not for sloppiness, but for "financial dishonesty," which is complete bullshit.

Is this even legal?

Edit - she was sloppy because she turned in her work late.

TQC, will you help me determine if I may have a cavity or not? I don't feel like wasting hundreds of dollars if it's not really one.

A few days ago one of my upper molars started to hurt. I was sitting on my bed and I felt a little 'pop' and it's been sore ever since. There's nothing visible on it and I just had my teeth cleaned a few weeks ago. It hurts when I walk up and down stairs and when I open my mouth outside (it's cold :P). However, it doesn't hurt when I eat ice cream or soup or anything else to make me think it's that sensitive. Right now it just feels as though it's under a lot of pressure. It's not annoying or painful, but I do know it's there. What the fuck is this?
