Did you used to?
My whole family likes Jack Benny, my dad and I also really like Edgar Bergin and Charley McCarthy. In one of the shows Edgar has his daughter, Candy-who is like 8-10 or something, at the time-come on the show and sing. It was amusing because even though I KNOW who his daughter is (DUH ha) it took me a couple minutes to make the connection and realize who she was.
What kinds of skirts should I be looking for? **edit: What kind of shirts could I wear with a skirt and still look somewhat casual? Is that even possible?
So I have to attend an elective lab for my biology class this semester. I have narrowed it down to two options:
Nature Printing- Using water-based plants and leaves from various plant species you will learn the process of creating nature prints.
Cadaver Dissection- Students will have the chance to view organs of the digestive, circulatory, nervous, and respiratory systems
I'm debating whether or not my curiosity will outweigh my nervousness.
Which elective lab should I attend?
If you've seen a cadaver dissection will you please tell me your thoughts?
Should I eat something healthy? Or should I snack out and eat Cheet-os and have a bowl of ice cream?
(In particular places like stupid_free?)
What do you do?
2) Do you still live with your parents? If not, with who?
3) At what age did you move out?
4) At what age do you think somebody should move out of their parents home?
also: what would you tell someone in the above situations?
"everybody knows it sucks to grow up"
Chips and salsa?
Cookies and cream ice cream with chocolate sauce & jimmies?
cheddar cheese and sour pickles?
Help me decice, TQC!
My boyfriend is afraid to make friends at school because my ex goes there and most of the people there know him or are friends with him, and he doesn't like my ex at all and wants to avoid him as much as possible. Should I give him some words of encouragement to make friends, or should I just leave it all alone and see how it works out? He's usually so social, it's wierd to know he's by himself so much now.
2. jimmies or sprinkles?
3. soda or pop?
4. sub/submarine or hoagie?
If you have something else for any, please do tell.
Also, I think I asked here once why we simply call pickled cucumbers "pickles" but anything else we state what is is pickled beets, pickled onions etc. Along that same line-why do we call dried grapes and dried plums raisins and prunes?
I need a vacuum cleaner. I have two cats. It needs to be reliable and use a bag.
DOES ANYONE HAVE A RECOMMENDATION?
What is the name of that 80s cartoon with the little people who wore flower hats? The only episode I saw they were preparing for a festival and there was a little pretty ballerina in a white dress with a white flower hat and this evil troll king saw her dancing and kidnapped her because she danced so beautifully, and this group of people - including a girl, a boy and a dog, all with flower hats - had to go through the woods to rescue her. And the troll king got angry because she wouldn't dance for him because she was miserable, and then it ended with a song about love and happiness and she came out of a flower dancing and I think the troll king cried.
I think it was made by the same people who did the Moondreamers, it was a similar style... I'm not even totally sure it was a series, or if it was just a one-off. I had it on a video that was recorded off the tv with all these other 80s cartoons, but that is the only one I can't remember.
I checked all of the cords and wires, and everything is where it should be and fully plugged in.
What else can I do to fix this?
Thanks in advance.
Edit: I've just discovered that I can hear music playing in iTunes, but the speakers aren't working for any sound playing in Winamp or Internet Explorer. Does anyone know how I can fix this when it's isolated to one program?
Preferably ones that are
my buzzer rang, it was some "Josh" guy. I didn't let him in. Someone else must have, because he got into the stairwell (either that or the door was unlocked like it is sometimes). I heard him knocking on a door downstairs for at least 5 minutes before I heard him come upstairs and knock on the door opposite from my apartment.
Then he went back downstairs. He was knocking and pounding for at least 15 minutes before I called campus security to get him out of there! He was starting to creep me out.
And yes, I watched through the peephole when he was on my floor.
I think he was drunk. yup.
TQC, what kind of icon should I get?

Have you seen American History X?
What did you think of it?
How are you?
My basement is flooded.
Not horribly, nothing is ruined, we had massive rain storms last night, but it's the first time it's done this. It would be fine if the little drain in the basement where all the water is supposed to drain into wasn't clogged. The last time it happened they had to send out a plumber to fix it.
Here's my predicament.
The only phone number I have for my land lords is their office. They aren't open on Sundays. I've already left them a message explaining what happened... I think.... I did talk into a answering machine, but I don't really recall what I said... okay... I'm gonna get to the point now.
What should I do?
Is it okay for me to call a plumber on Sunday?
Do I pay for it and have my landlord reimburse me?
Do I have him give me the bill and then give it to my landlord?
It should be noted that I know the place that they used last time, or at least the dudes name, so I should be able to track him down on the net... I hope
I hate having to make these big type decisions because this stuff isn't SUPPOSED to happen on the weekends! JEEBUS!
Anyone want to join me for a really fucking stiff drink right about now?? D:

WTF are my chances of getting a hold of a plumber before Tuesday? *GROAN*
2)what do you think about douching?
3)do you like to wear perfume?
eta: do the goodwill drive in things allow you to walk in and give them stuff or should you go to the actual store and give them your crap?
What's the weather like today?
It's very wet and gray outside. Typical dreary February day :(
I have a bump on the top of my eye. Obviously, I can't see it, so I can't tell if it's actually attached or if it's debris, but as it's not irritating my eye and it seems to not be moving around, I'm guessing it's attached. So wtf is it?
(EDIT: It's actually on my eyeball, under the eyelid. It feels like it's about the size of a pimple, and it seems to be hard, not fluid-filled.)
Background story: I went to College A for fall quarter and hated it, I transferred to College B winter quarter. I just got a letter saying that since I "dropped out" of college my deferment date had been moved up to May of this year instead of Jan 2012. My dad called and told them that I was still in school and now we have to fax them a form that says that I still go to school and you have to check full time or half time. My dad didn't ask if half time would make a difference; I planned on only taking 10 credit hours next quarter and I wanted to drop one of my classes this quarter.
Today I need to accomplish the following things:
However, I am in Tahoe, and it is cold outside (cold to ME, I'm sure 34 F is not cold to many of you). I'm not snowboarding with my friends because I need to study. I need to shower after the run. I don't know how great I will be at concentrating right now since I'm kind of itching to do something active, but I am worried about being cold. Because I am a wimp.
1. Start studying now, wait for it to warm up outside, run, shower, study more.
2. Suck it up and go run now, shower to regain feeling in my hands and feet, and study in one big block until the snowboarders come home.
THANKS TQC I CANNOT MAKE DECISIONS WITHOUT YOUR INPUT.
eta: ok, going running ttyl tqc
eta 2: Damn you, altitude, for making me hyperventilate and giving me a stupid sports asthma exacerbation. I'm still wheezing. At least I got some exercise :)
What do you like/not like about where you live?
Is it busy like a city? Or slower?
Would you recommend where you live for someone else if they wanted to move, but did't know where to?
I just got an IM from "GuardianSalmon". Who the hell is that?
GuardianSalmon: how do you know?
GuardianSalmon: I'm off ot bed
GuardianSalmon: it's been a long weekend
GuardianSalmon: I'll catch you later
As if I had been talking to them previously or something. WTF?
Because I'm originally from a place where 14 year olds typically don't drink (at least not that I now of), I'd like to know why.
1. Did you drink to get drunk when you were younger than the drinking age of your country?
1a. Why or why not?
2. Do you drink to get drunk now?
2a. Why or why not?
3. IF you drank to get drunk when you were younger than the drinking age of your country please tell me which country you were living in at the time.

Would you give a dog that doesn't really have any job or bring anything to the family a $200 surgery?
No broken bones, just a black eye and some bruises.
UPDATE FROM LAST NIGHT:
Since many of you asked, and I'm too lazy to join TQC_updates: I'm pretty sure my bf didn't kill anyone last night. He just came home a couple hours ago and ran off to his room to sleep off the copious amounts of booze he'd drank.
Where do you work? Did you find it hard to find work?
I aint going to hold back because of the myth it is hard to find work at all by the way :) just curious to know other peoples thoughts.

1. What is your favourite ringtones site?
I don't really have one, I just got some new ringtones from www.highfiveringtones.com
3. How much do you pay, or do you usually get free ringtones and where
I usually get my ringtones for free but I'm also subscribed to one
service. I hope I can find some great free websites.
If so, did you like it or hate it?
I loved it. It restored my love for The Beatles. I grew up on them and over years, while testing out new music, lost my appreciation for them. This movie brought it right back.
Can you suggest a book for me?
I usually read any thing from the PUSH series ( www.thisispush.com ). I also read the Harry Potter Series, Cirque Du Freak and Many others. I'm really a crime buff and have yet to find a True Crime book that interests me. If that helps!

Now, I know the Yaris would get much better gas mileage, but when it comes to safety, I just feel a hell of a lot safer driving a CR-V.
Can you offer me some pros and/or cons for each? Also, personal experience, and what you would choose?
I am not asking for what other cars you think I should get, I'm asking CR-V or Yaris.
I want to have a good day today. Should I start it off with peanut butter and jelly, or with cream cheese? I'm going to make a sandwich.
EDIT: Kay guys. You can stop voting. I got tired of waiting so I chose cream cheese because it's one thing to spread on bread instead of two.
and was there any bad side effects?
They've been really apathetic since the pain medication they received at the clinic wore off. They mostly keep to themselves somewhere out of sight, but that's what cats do when they're in pain.
I take their food right in front of their faces, so they won't have to move to the kitchen to eat. I've put old blankets on the living room floor so they don't have to jump anywhere to get to a soft spot to lay on.
Is there any more I can do to make them feel a little better?
I hate so see them so miserable. :'(
1) If you wear glasses, can I see a picture of them?

what's your fave medicine for when you have a nasty cough?
i haven't had just a nasty cough in years and have no idea how to treat it :(
She goes to bed at like 5-7am every day and disregards the fact that I am trying to sleep, then sleeps in the afternoon/evening (and since I'm polite, I am silent and turn off all the lights). She always has her friends and boyfriend over. When I inform her that my boyfriend is coming over (who I only see every other week or so and can't go to his house), she sleeps til 3-5pm and then gets angry if I ask her politely to let me have alone time with him. Plus, she never does laundry or washes her dishes! She is always loud, obnoxious, and just a spoiled brat in general. I've talked to her about this already!
TQC, wtf do I do to keep my sanity and to keep myself from killing her?
If you found out that someone smoked, would that change your opinion about that person?

Grandmother says: "I don't want Obama to win, because then the black people will take over America."
"We've done so many bad things to them, and they'll take the opportunity to get back at us."
(Going with Crazy Logic)"...I'm pretty sure there will still be white people in office if Obama wins."
"8 out of 10 murders are committed by black people. I just don't want someone like that in office."
"Okay I really have to be going I'll see you later BYE." I had to leave because I didn't want to start laughing in her face, and she was seriously starting to weird me out.
So, TQC, where does my grandmother get these statistics? Fox News?
Has your family said anything lately that was so "what the fuck" worthy?
I had a witness in my car as well as a Wal-Mart employee. The entire time she was angry and yelling and had the audacity to call the police on me because she didn't like my attitude. She even started begging people to sign a witness statement 30 minutes after the incident, people who were not even at the scene.
My entire front end is cracked IN HALF (the car has a body kit). My paint was all over her car but she didn't even get a scratch. The police said they can't file a report because it is private property and that I have to go through my insurance. I've googled our laws and it isn't looking good. I have to wait until Tuesday to talk to my insurance because it is a holiday tomorrow.
Do I have a case here? I keep hearing that police here don't enforce driving on private property. I called her at home tonight to see if she wanted to work it out, outside of insurance and she told me to fuck off and lose her number. I live in Ontario.
