How old were you the first time your parents left you at home by yourself, with no babysitter?

I'm taking a plane from Georgia to California (five hour flight, three hour time zone change); it leaves at 9 AM, meaning I'd have to get up at about 6 AM in order to get there in time. This is a problem, as I RARELY get up before, oh, noon.

I'm torn between these three sleeping schedules:

a: going to sleep at my normal time and sleeping on the plane to compensate (the con here is that I might be super grouchy while navigating the airport - a task difficult enough as it is)

b: staying up all night and sleeping on the plane (the con being that I get a bit less sleep than I'm used to - only five hours)

c: going to sleep early and not sleeping on the plane (the con being that my current sleep schedule is perfect for California, with no need to adjust, and going to sleep early might ruin it)

Thoughts? If you were me, how would you go about planning your sleeping for the night before?

Why did my stupid cat just shit all over my clothes!?!??!!?!?!?!?
His litter box was cleaned out yesterday, completely dumped! He used it this morning to poop and then he took one on my WORK CLOTHES!!!
Over the past week I've been switching him from Special Kitty kibble to Iams kibble. I mixed about two pounds of Special Kitty with Iams and then after two days of that, I added another two pounds of Iams, so it shouldn't be the kibble, right? Is he pissed at me for trying to get him used to the dog?


edit: Also, last night he kept crawling on my face and he woke me up by blowing a ripe one in my face.

Imagine this. You're hanging out with a friend of the opposite sex. It's just the two of you standing and talking alone outside before going to see a play his sister is in. There is a slight sexual tension in the air. Suddenly, he asks if he may be forward with you. What do you think "____, may I be forward with you?" means in this situation?

I thought it meant I was about to be asked another question; one likely pertaining to if one of us were into the other.
Instead, it meant kisses! D: I was bewildered!

So, tonight someone asked me, for the first time in my life, if I would to be their valentine.

He's a friend of mine who I'm not attracted to physically, but his personality is an all around winner and makes up for not being "hot" and honestly, that's what I want in a guy - personality. In fact, his personality is so awesome that it's actually making me physically attracted. Good thing, yeah? Plus, he's totally cool with the idea of me leaving for a month at a time, and he's 100% opposite of your typical college guy - I wouldn't be worried about loyalty and whatnot. So with that in mind, a few questions...

1. He lives in an apartment of 5 people who I'm good friends (including the one jackass that I've ever slept with drunk, which I regretted and still do.) Will this be awkward if we start to date?

2. Said-jackass goes out of his way to make it known to me that he's seeing this new girl who lives in West Virginia. He started seeing her (or rather, screwing her) a day after he got romantic with me and tried to get me into bed again, but I said no. Lame, typical college boy. Will I look desperate, even though I'm absolutely not, dating his room mate?

3. Have you ever had a valentine? If so, will you tell me about it?

2. When you have a song stuck in your head, do you roll with it, or do you try to get it out of your head as soon as possible?
3. What do you typically do to get your mind off of the song?

2. I usually just end up singing the lyrics aloud and bothering everyone around me.
3. Listen to the song in question, and then listen to another immediately afterward. Pretty much always works for me.

Dear TQC,

I'll be traveling to the UK later in the year and I have enlisted your help to inform me of what I hands down, MUST see while I'm there. I bought the travel books and all that jazz but I want some more personal input.

I will mostly be around Manchester/London area, but if theres something worth seeing elsewhere, I'll probably venture out there.

1) What should I go see?
2) Is there anything food wise that I have to try?

Word woes

My sister's encountered a problem with Word '03 recently. Any document she creates at Uni does it, although others are fine.

Basically, when she goes to apply some formatting (say, underlining a piece of text), it changes the formatting of the entire document, seemingly at random. The undo list has an automatic formatting entry, so she can get her desired changes, but we're wondering, does anyone know how to turn this off? I went through the options and couldn't find anything, and I haven't used Word in over a year.

My soon-to-be roommate and I are going to look at a dog that we may adopt. If we do decide on this one, and get approval from the humane society, we'd have to come back sometime next week to get it.

That being said, would it be a bad idea to wear a cologne that I don't normally wear, just on the chance that we go see the dog again and I'll smell different?

Remember that Simpsons episode?


Your SO is overworked at his or her job. They've been eating badly and gained a few pounds, and are utterly stressed out and needs a break, but can't afford to miss work. He or she has checked the job market, and their job pays the best in their field and it's not worth leaving. Then one day, the company changes their medical plan. Among the new changes, it now states that obesity qualifies as a disability and those exceding 300 lbs. can file for disability payment. Your SO thinks that this would be perfect, that he or she will start eating a lot and reach that 300 lb. goal, becoming obese for a few months until they can decompress and take control of their life again. A mini fat-break from their job. Your SO runs this plan by you. That it'll be 6 months at most, then they'll lose the pounds and go back to their normal weight. They just need a break because the stress is taking its toll.

1. Would you be supportive of their plan and put up with a fatter lover for the next handful of months, or would you try and talk them out of it, or would you let them do what they wanted and leave them when you were no longer attracted to them anymore?

Poll #1136930 Another poll about gender and, this time, teh gay

Your SO says to you one day "Honey, I think I might be gay. I do love you, though, and don't want to break up. But, to accomodate my new preference, would you be willing to compromise your appearance, to keep our love life alive? Would you be willing to get a closely-cropped, boycut and start wearing ties? (if you're male, then she wants you to grow your hair long and always stay clean-shaven, and lose a lot of muscle mass)." To make your relationship work, would you be willing to make these small physical adjustments to keep him/her interested?

Yes, I would do it
No, I would not

You give birth to a baby (or your SO does). The doctor told you that it was a girl, due to the ultrasound, but there was a hidden penis as well. Your child is both genders (what used to be termed hermaphrodite). The doctor gives you options. You can keep the child the way it is, and maybe at some point it can decide what gender to be, but it would grow up very confused. Or you could choose to have the sex of the baby altered to male or female. Your SO says that he or she is fine with whatever choice you make. What choice do you make?

Keep the baby both genders and let it decide for itself at some point
Have the baby altered to a boy
Have the baby altered to a girl

Your parents come to you one day and, in a serious tone, tell you that when you were born, you were both genders (penis and vagina). At the time, they felt it best that you were only one sex, and made the decision, which is the gender you are now. Upon hearing this news, how do you feel?

They made the correct decision. I like being what I am
They made the wrong decision. I really feel I'd be more comfortable being the opposite gender
I'm happy with the gender I am, though the news would explain a lot about me. Some traits where feel a little...off

Paris Hilton reportedly made out with Elisha Cuthbert in public a couple weeks ago. She's also going to be appearing in the L Word. She could be into chicks now. How does this make you feel about her?

Same as before. I really don't give a shit
She's bisexual? Hmm. I think this makes me like her more now

Take a Trip

Any advice for someone with little cash who wants to get out of the city?
Where should I go that won't cost a fortune?
How should I go about getting there? I don't have a car nor am I old enough to rent one.

I live in New York City and I've been considering taking a trip either in the summer after I graduate high school or in the spring to upstate or Montauk (East Hampton). Suggestions would be much appreciated. To be completely honest, I have no idea how to go about getting to either place and to what I should do while I'm there. All I know is after a long four years, a new setting that isn't as crowded would make me so happy.

Thanks in advance for any of your thoughts!

what song (if any) makes you weep like a baby?

for me personally...very rarely can I listen to "Wish You Were Here" (by Pink Floyd of course...if you didnt know that I'm very sad for you) without bawling.

im kind of stuck in the stone ages when it comes to tv--the only two shows i watch regularly are the twilight zone (which ceased production in the mid-60s) and M*A*S*H (which ceased production in the early 80s). of course, this makes me a bit of a tv luddite.

on the upside, i have directv with tivo, so . . . which shows should i be tivo'ing? i'd like something current (i.e., shows currently in production). also, i only watch tv for maybe an hour a day, and i dont have any premium channels. im open to pretty much any type of programming, but could never really get into reality tv.

(and if youre wondering why i have directv/tivo when i dont watch much tv, i have it almost exclusively to watch baseball during baseball season).

I few weeks ago I was complaining here about not being able to find purple shoe laces. I had been telling my friend in MA. Somehow it came up when her parents (in CT) were visiting her and so her dad had mentioned he recalled a store in the mall that had all sorts of colored laces so he went and got me a pair (actually he got me three but that's because he's sort of neurotic)

Was this gesture

A. Creepy
B. Sweet
C. Funny
D. Combination of two or more of the above (specify please)

I think it's funny and sweet, I don't know him ALL that well but he's a really nice guy and it was even funnier that he bought three pairs, just because he didn't know which one I would want but is so detailed oriented and neurotic I think he didn't want to take the risk

Birth Control Pills for Men

Ladies: Would you ask your hunk of love to take the birth control pill? If he agreed, would you cease taking yours? Do you or would you still require your man to wear a condom even if one or the other or both of you are on the pill?

Edit: I asked a guy friend if he'd take it. He said "Not if there would be bad side effects." Later in the conversation he said he thought it was the girl's responsibility to take the pill. Why is it OK for the girl to suffer the side effects of the pill but not for the guy?

My friend has an ear infection that isn't so serious (according to him), but he still needs antibiotics. He refuses to go to a doctor because he's from Serbia and only here in New York to make some money for a year and doesn't want to ~waste~ his money on a doctor's visit/antibiotics.

However, I happen to have 15 875 ml. pills of Amoxicillian-Calvulanate Potassium. The internet sort of says they can be used for everything, basically.

Does anyone know of a site, that works sort of like cafepress, where you can submit photos and have them put on postcards, that you and other people can order online? edit: dammit. Cafepress can do that. I didn't see that option.

I've recently (past two months) stopped biting my fingernails. i hate the feeling of having them scraping on things. I was trying to scrub a pot today and it just felt... slightly sick. Does this happen to anyone else?

A friend and i are about to make home made icecream. What flavour should we make it? We'll go shopping.

another one: What's a good thread that's a history conversation? I'm trying to rejuvenate a history section of a forum.


How do we feel about flip flops in the winter?

Today, it was eleven degrees out (maybe less than that right now at 6pm). I saw people on campus wearing flip flops, and one boy wearing shorts. This angers me..... severely. And this is coming from someone who practically lives for flip flops. And I'll admit... in the deep of the fall season, I will party in flip flops (if I'm drunk enough to not care about my feet). But, TODAY? It was so cold! I just don't understand.

The only satisfaction I got was seeing them all suffer. Yeah, it was cold enough that it was impossible to fake it.

So I have a Dell Dimension DM051 Desktop, 2.66 GHz, 1gig of RAM, and a NVIDIA GeForce 7600GS (Not sure how much MB) Graphics Card, Completely stock computer.

I play World Of Warcraft and was wondering what should I upgrade in the computer for better performance, the graphics card or the RAM itself? Looks do not matter as much as sheer speed.

Please recommend what you would get (Brand/Product), I will probably get it from newegg.com if that helps, also was looking at anywhere from $100-$300 range, thanks a ton. And sorry if this is a terrible community to post in, as I don't really know of another place to do so.

Does anyone know where I can UPLOAD a photograph, and then it'll reformat it into TEXT only (using the colours of the photograph)?
I hope that makes sense..

I have a photograph, and I need to replicate it by making it out of this quote only... if that gives you an idea.
I know it exsists, I just don't know what it's called!

Now that you've gotten out all your extreme feelings toward each other out, will you reply here and let everyone tell you a completely neutral comment about you? Then tell others who comment something about them, something random you notice or think of or whatever, as long as it's neither positive or negative.

To Drink Or Not To Drink

I just received an urgent text message that says "YOU BETTER NOT BE LETTING HIM DRINK!!!!!"

I don't recognize the number.

1. TQC, who should I be keeping from drinking and why?

I have texted the number back but I am too impatient to wait for a response.

2. Have you received any mysterious texts lately?

3. If you could keep anyone from drinking, who would it be and why?

Did you miss me?!

I have a question, do AMERICAN people (everyone whos not English) have The Big Issue homeless magazine thing?

Do you buy it? Do you sell it maybe?

Its expensive now! I went up to this guy who was selling it in my town today, and I was expecting it to be like 20p, and he was all like £1.50 please! Thats like a third of my smoking money! But I still bought it obviously because I didn't want to disapoint him now! It was nice talking to him, he wasn't really that grateful though. I didn't even read the bloody thing because I don't like reading that much and its about boring things but still...I feel quite happy about it!

Do you feel happy when you buy The Big Issue (or your version of it)?

My current yarn supplier is going out of business. I'm wondering if anyone knows of a good single ply purewool recommendation OR a recommendation of really soft yarn that I can make toddler blankets out of. I'm looking for some brilliant colorways, too. And my price range is anywhere from 6 - 15 dollars per skien. Anyone know where I can order some yarn? Also, I'm most interested in recommendations from people who have actually used the yarn. I'm currently looking into BBR and three irish girls, but I've never knitted with that kind of yarn before, so I don't know if they'd be worth buying or not.

Can you post a picture of someone that you think has natural beauty?
...and also someone who you think is pretty because of unnautral things (ex. tanning bed, make up, teeth whitener, plastic surgery)

How do you guys study for an exam?

I am having a difficult time with a class of mine because the information is SO boring and I can't seem to remember any of it. So sharing any tips you have, or at least knowing your own study methods, would be great!

Can anybody recommend any good books about the apocalypse or about a post-apocalyptic world? And don't recommend Oryx and Crake because I've already read that one!
