I will be taking an lj hiatus for a few weeks, while rissie decides if she's going to take me to irl court for outing her as a law school and cancer faker.

So, since I will have tons of free time:

1. I need loooong books to read. Whole series are fine, or just single books with like 1000 pages or more. I like almost anything besides romance (including non-fic, as long as it's not sports), and no children's or young adult books, please.
Examples of the kind of stuff I'm looking for but have already read:
Atlas Shrugged
Wheel of Time
The Stand

2. I am also looking for good games to play. I don't really want to pay a monthly fee, though. I tend toward puzzle or word games, but I'll try anything once.
Games I've enjoyed:
Diablo II
Hidden object games, usually
Harvester
Phantasmagoria
Hellgate: London, but less buggy plz.
Age of Empires II (III and mythology make me dizzy.)

Several of my friends are gay. One of them had a fiancee before coming out of the closet.

He mentioned that one of the things that led him to realize he was gay was when he was having sex with her while pleasuring himself with a dildo.

Now, I'm not one to question how gay people get their "revelations," but I was curious because when I pointed out that some straight men enjoy anal stimulation, he said those men only enjoy if it's a butt plug, something that's not the shape and size of an actual penis. He said straight men didn't like having something that long in their ass.

That didn't sound right to me. I admit, I'm not exactly well-versed in this kind of thing, but I don't think he can rightly say that. I'm almost certain that there are many straight men who enjoy having penis-shaped, penis-sized dildos inside them.

What do you all think?

Snuggly warm

Dear TQC do you wear leggings or long johns or long underwear or a pair of pj pants or anything under your pants when it's cold outside?

I wear these silky heavy leggins that I could wear with a skirt as well. I have a pair in white and a pair in black and they have lace at the ankles. someone who saw me in them today kept laughing at them, but I think they're cute and they keep me warm!


Does it sound cute to you?

HOMEWORK: What popular scapegoats can you think of that DO NOT directly involve religion? Google already has the religious aspect covered, thnx.

NOT HOMEWORK: Assuming all other factors are identical, would you rather see a doctor who keeps paper medical records or electronic medical records? Why?

THE UGLY: Are there any celebrities that most people describe as beautiful but you just don't see it? Are there any "unattractive" celebrities that you think are attractive? I think Tilda Swinton is gorgeous and Angelina Jolie has a big scary man jaw.

 I went to Starbucks this morning and two interesting things happened.  1) A girl who works there (but was a customer this morning) went in and a girl behind the counter said "Hey Miss 21!  Are you excited?"  The birthday girl responded "Yeah!  We're heading off to Vegas right now."  2) I told another woman behind the counter that my name is Becky and she said "Beth?"  So I just said "Yeah" instead of correcting her.

1) When you turned 21, how did you celebrate?

2) When you go to Starbucks or any place where you have to give a name but your true identity doesn't matter, do you ever give a fake name?   When a barista confirms your name and it's wrong, do you correct them?

3) For anyone who is married: Did you set a date that was meaningful to you or was it just a random day?  If it was a date that meant something, what was special about that date?

you know how most TQC'ers are American females between 18 and 26?

are there any other things (personality traits, financial status, education, mental disorders, etc.) that you think would be more common among our population?

ETA: what's something (interest/name/location, etc.) that you know *for a fact* that you share with a fellow TQC'er? my birthday.

Forensic Identification Unit

Does the Forensic Identification Unit of a police department only show up if a crime has been committed or any time a dead body is found?

The forensic identification unit was parked at a house around the corner from me with a police car. I'm wondering if a crime took place or if they just found someone dead...

You guys rule.

Thanks for the perspective on my most recent question. I love that about yous guys.

So now my new question - who in your life is the person who comes along and smacks you up alongside the head (literally or metaphorically) when you're being a little bitch, doing something wrong, or you're just acting weird/like a moron?

My answer: my mother, my father, a few of my best friends, and my boyfriend. They're all really good at helping me get my head out of my ass. :)

I'm not much of a traveler but I'm considering a trip to Maui in July for a friend's wedding. I have never actually *planned* a trip other than a quick overnighter type of thing, so this is a big deal for me.

I have sky miles points on a credit card (Alaska Airlines to be exact) that I have access to that will probably pay for most of my airfare. Because of this does that mean I cannot do a 'package deal' (like flight/lodging) via Travelocity or Expedia or something? Or is there a way to do it via those places and still make use of the points?

Spirits

I know that this is going to seem weird but does anyone here know a good summoning spell for spirits? Or at least a good website? Some friends and I are going to Old House Woods in VA and there is reportedly spirits there. We went a couple months ago and felt some pretty wierd stuff but I'd really like to conjure something. thanks
EDIT: Me and my friends actually have a good amount of experince when it comes to ghost hunting and we are all practicing witches but we just cant find any good summoning spells... We have done them before and know how to do protection circles and the like, we just cant find any that work... We do know what we are doing


EDIT: We went and had a great time. I wrote a spell myself and it worked pretty well. Nobody talked to us but we did get some mental 'pushing' and had some other crazy shit happen. Thank you to everyone who wrote something positive and BOOOOOOOOOO to those who didnt. Oh and to everyone who thought that I was a girl...... I'm not..... sorry. Thank you again everyone for your concern. Have a great day.

Has anyone ever tried salvia divinorum? 

If you've tried it, what was it like?

In what method did you consume it?

Salvia divinorum is legal here in the US- if you are someone that has used it, do you think it should stay legal?

Throughout my childhood I had a favourite aunt who I have very fond memories of. She lived across the country in Calgary, but every christmas she would send us a huge care package and we would visit her almost every summer. When I was 16 and going through problems I went to stay with her for a few months, and again when I was 18 (which was in 1998). She was extremely generous and loving and was pretty much a second mom.

Anyway, after that we both went through a bunch of bullshit and we never spoke again. I got all self-involved and drug-addicted and angsty, and she she gained a lot of weight, got severely depressed and has been in and out of the psych ward. She's not the same person she used to be. I went back to Calgary with my mom the summer before last for the first time since 1998. I was excited to see her since I hadn't even spoken to her in 8 years, but in the whole 3 weeks we were there she only made time to see us for an afternoon tea. She didn't make eye contact or talk to me the whole time. When leaving, I went to hug her and she didn't hug back.

I realized that she had health/mental health issues but I guess I didn't expect that. It has weighed heavy on my mind ever since. Now my mom is telling me that my aunt probably won't be alive for much longer. Knowing that I probably won't ever see her again makes me really sad.

Now my question: should I take some initiative and write her a letter or something? Should I keep it light or talk about my feelings and that it hurt when she refused to hug me? I guess I'm kind of worried that she won't even respond (or respond in a cold manner) and that would make me feel even worse. But if she dies with my last memory of her being that afternoon she ignored me, that would be horrible.
Thanks.

So I'm starting to save up for something big, though I'm not 100% yet.

My ex boyfriend wants to take me to Hawaii for his birthday next year, so I was thinking about that (I'd want to split the hotel bills, pay my way over, etc). He's not very reliable, though, and he's kind of a jerk. 2 weeks with him = eek. But still, it's Hawaii, and I can always find stuff to do without him. For that, I'd want ~5,000 dollars saved up.

I could save up for a general vacation, with the location to be determined at a later date. I'm thinking traveling through Northern Europe. I have no idea how much I'd need for that. Also, none of my friends are interested in traveling (aside for ex boyfriend). WTF? :-(

I was also thinking about getting a dirtbike. I need a new hobby. That would be around 2,000 dollars.

Or I could just put the extra money towards paying for my car. It'd be nice to have it paid off sooner.

I can save up 500 dollars every 1.5 months. I don't care how long it takes to save up. I just need help on deciding on a goal.

So, TQC, what should I save up for?

 Let's assume you're all religious or spiritual and believe in Heaven and Hell.

1) Which TQCer is most likely to go to Heaven?

2) Which TQCer is most likely to go Hell/Purgatory?

You can't base it on your best friend who you wish would go to Heaven or the person you hate most and wish would go to Hell because your best friend may be inherently evil or the person you hate most might be inherently good.  You just have to base it on who has the highest and lowest standards of good and evil.

Une Question

Even though my Valentine's Day sucked yesterday, I'm determined not to hold it against him. So, I'm off today, and I'm going to thoroughly clean our apartment. Then, I'm going to make a scrumptious dinner that will be ready for him when he gets home.

Because we all want to survive the zombie apocalypse

So, TQC, you're driving home tonight when you notice that the streets are filled with zombies. It seems a zombie apocalypse has begun and you're still 10 miles from home and your gas meter is running on E. If you run out of gas and have to head home (or whatever safe house you're breaking towards) on foot, what are the odds that you'll make it?

Alternatively, you receive word from the future that a zombie apocalypse is due to begin in six months time. You've no way to prevent it. How does your life change and how do you prepare yourself for the oncoming hordes?

As I myself have bad knees and am v. out of shape, I'm quite certain that I would be killed and have my tasty brainmeats eaten if given the first option. What should I do to raise my chances of survival?

I updated here the other night about my dog that died, thanks to everyone who replied. My vet wouldn't come and get him but I phoned a few vets and I got one that came for him.

I was thinking of making a video montage thing in Movie Maker for Mum. I can't think of a suitable song. Can anyone help? For the record, Buster was a puppy till the end. He was so lively and friendly and loved everyone he met, a real character. He was more than just a family pet. I thought of You're My Best Friend but there's a few songs with that title.

Any suggestions?

My girlfriend does not think my plan of being homeless and living in a combi van is awesome. Clearly she is crazy.

What should be included in my combi van?

I'm currently thinking that I have a bed roll, a cupboard like thing that has ironing board like material on the top of half of it, and the other half is like a bench. I'm hoping you could get a small generator to power a hotplate, tiny iron & charge my mobile phone (at different times). Also a bucket for teeth brushing, washing with a cloth. Use public toilets and have a gym membership so I can shower (& get fit!).

What

I hate cleaning. I was a housekeeper for a good 4 years, and it really burnt me out on housework. I'm terrible about letting everything pile up until I'm forced to do something about it, as opposed to spending 15-20 minutes per day on keeping the place tidy.

However, I've found recently that if I make a list and cross it off as I go, I don't have a problem with it anymore.

Why, TQC? This makes no sense to me.

Do you make to-do lists?

anyone know if there are any stores featuring a mexican or latin inspired clothing line right now? 

completely random, I know - but I need a mexican chic outfit for my fiesta birthday party tomorrow! i suppose I could throw on a sarape and accessorize.

There's a woman at my work who feels like she's my boss, but she's not. She's a co-worker from accounting, I help out accounting with stuff (I'm a receptionist). She takes it upon herself to "suggest" things for me to do, when she sees me check my e-mail between tasks, she runs right up here and asks if I need any help, "since I'm so busy typing", etc. Generally, she babysits me. I get all my work done promptly during the day, and then some. Hell, I ask the accounting people if they have things for me to do! This woman acts like I'm gonna kick up my feet, chew gum and file my nails all day if she doesn't "keep me busy". and no, there's no policy against a little internet use

TV/movie quote?

So I'm looking for the source of this scene and quote. Unfortunately, I don't have the EXACT quote, but I remember the gist of it. I have a feeling it's from Scrubs but I may be wrong It is most likely NOT from Scrubs but from an earlier television show, and if anyone could fill in my missing knowledge, I would be very grateful. I know many people have memories like sponges out there, so I'm hoping someone will stumble across this question. =)

The scene is two people are standing facing each other, and they are speaking the exact thing at the exact same time. I think one person is male and the other female. The sequence is something like:

"Get out of my head!"
"No, you get out of my head!"
"Stop it!"

"(some completely ridiculous string of words said by both at the exact same time)"

For just the tower from The Source, a new model, its $299 + tax and junk. Specs: AMD Athlon 64 4000+ processor, 160gig harddrive, 1024MB RAM (blah), DVD drive/burner, shitty video which I would swap out for my current one, and what I like best, 14-in-1 card reader that reads camera memory sticks.

So what do you think TQC? Is it a trap, or should I go for it? Should I wait for a better deal from a better company? Or should I harrass my ex until he returns my XP disks and keep on using The Little PC that Could? What should I doooo?

Have any of you taken the Plan B pill? Does it caused missed periods? It says it causes "menstrual changes" but what does that mean?

My last period ended like January 11th. Isn't it about due?

TQC, I need to start preparing to apply to grad school. My mentor-professor has recommended several programs to me, none of which are close to my hometown. Thankfully though, an international conference on my area of study is happening an hour from where I live in October, so I should be able to meet some of the professors that I am interested in working with in person. But I've been told that it might be a good idea to start correspondence with them through e-mail first, so they'll know who I am at the conference.

How the hell do I do this? Like, what do I say? What is the format for something like this? It just seems like writing something like "Hi Dr. So-and-so, I am very interested in your work, could we meet at XX conference in October? Thx Bai!" would be awkward.

Have any of you fallen victim of a "skimmer" scam? Where you pay at the pump at the gas station, only to have your credit card number stolen?

How did you handle it?


Personally, I have not, but my boss had that happen a few nights ago. They've debited more than $2,000 dollars when she only had $1,600 in there. Just really odd, idk.


For those who haven't heard of it, here is an ARTICLE about it.

See you on Cops!

Ok so. A few days ago, I went to the gas station, and the screen on the pump wasn't working. I went inside and asked, and the guy said the pump was working, the screen was just out. I said ok, and went back to pump gas. I swiped my card and it beeped and shit, so I started pumping gas. I finished and waited for a receipt and there was none so I said fuck it, and left.

Now, I'm looking at my bank account and I don't see the money coming out, nor do I see a $1 hold on my account like gas stations usually do.

Did I steal that gas???

I'm actually kind of freaked about this. Should I go back to the station and ask them about it? I can't remember when I did it.... Maybe Tuesday?

Should I just wait and see if the money comes out?

Are they going to come and arrest me??

Am I overreacting...?

1.) Does anyone else here use Mibba? If so, are you also having problems accessing the site? I tried to follow a link to my profile page there, but the site told me that my profile didn't exist; then I tried to get to the main page, but it wouldn't even load, so I'm hoping it's just technical errors. Any other Mibba users having problems with that right now?

2.) Have you seen the movie Jumper, yet? I saw it last night, and it...wasn't bad. Could have done without the cliche love-story subplot, but that's true of a lot of movies, I think. Anyone else seen it, and have an opinion on it?

3.) What about Black Snake Moan? My family got it off of Netflix, and I'm thinking about watching it tonight. I have a bit of a crush on Christina Ricci, so I'll probably end up watching it anyway, but it is worth watching?

4.) Muttonchops - a good or bad look on a guy?

5.) What's making that noise outside my window?

People tend to negatively judge those who spend execessive amounts of time in front of the computer or in front of the television. Which one do you think is judged more harshly, generally? Which do you think has more negative factors?
