So, I have tendonitis in my right foot. On top of that, I keep twisting it in one way or another that usually involves me being hilariously clumsy. So I've decided it's doing more harm than good attached to my body.

What's the most epic and awesome way I could possibly get rid of my right foot?

Will you tell me about a time that you ate greedily?

This afternoon I was out doing some errands and I planned to get a snack because I was sort of hungry-I hadn't had lunch an it was like 4pm. By the time I got out of the store with a bag of Flat Earth veggie crisps I was starving and opened them as soon as I got out of the store and ate a whole bunch. I ate as I drove too for a couple minutes.

BOOBS

So say someone like Keira Knightley wanted to get implants, I don't know, something along the lines of 42D's. Could she get implants that big? It doesn't seem like she has the boob skin to cover implants that size. How does that work, do they stretch the skin?

Has anyone here had someone do this tickling thing to you? You have your finger nails/tips bunched together in the centre of someone's knee, then move all fingers out until your hand is spread, lightly but firmly pressing on the knee as you go out.
You can't do it to yourself.

Do people in Canada get annoyed when you receive United States change? Will stores accept a US coin if you try to pay with it?

Americans - what do you do with Canadian change? People give it to you, but then they won't take it! Arg. I've got mounds of it.

Listen to me, you perverted plastic horse.

Is Cute With Chris (the weekly video show, or the website) pure Canadian genius, or really irritating? Does it grow on you after a while?
He is my savior.

How does thong underwear make you feel?
It makes me think of butt floss. The fabric gets way too near my actual asshole for comfort, so I go the way of the mom-ass panty-lines instead.

Do you ever assign human personality traits to species of animals?
Horses remind me of distinguished nobles and of kind-hearted policemen. Poodles remind me of high-strung socialites. Both my cats remind me of drug dealers I've known––the shifty black one is for sure a coke dealer, and my jumpy confused half-blind white cat is like that man who used to deal acid under a tree in Central Park who eventually got arrested and disappeared.

Do you ever pop other people's prescriptions when they're offered? Or are pharmaceuticals way too serious to be taken that lightly?
My roommate inherited a bottle of her late grandmother's Tramadols, so we popped them like crazy for a couple of days.

Opinions on kimchi, if any?

Youth sizes

What does "youth" mean in sizes? I want to order a t-shirt online and they have no sizing chart or anything. I used to think "youth" meant "kids" but the shirt doesn't seem like it'd be appropriate for a kid so now I'm wondering if it means like teenager-aged.

The sizes are listed as Youth Medium, Youth Large, Small, Medium, Large, Extra Large.

Usually unisex small t-shirts are too large for me, do you reckon the youth sizes would be a better fit?

Hypothetically speaking

You fucked your brother's good friend this past summer and haven't told anybody. However, your brother's friend keeps making sexual advances on you and it's starting to bug the shit of you because that one time was a huge mistake to begin with.

You are somewhat close to your brother but he watches and judges your actions closely because he cares and wants the best for you.

Do you tell your brother without giving the backstory, risking him finding out about the sex from his friend?
Do you tell your brother with the backstory, risking his scorn and loss of respect for you?
Do you continue to be quiet about it and just take the creepy sexual advances?

Or do you just fuck the friend and not give a shit about any and all consequences?

Dearest TQC,

I will be taking my best friend to Dallas next weekend (14th-16th) to celebrate her birthday (which is on the 16th) now I am not entirely familiar with Dallas and yes, I've looked on some websites to see what all is going on (so that we'll have stuff to do while we're there)

What I need help with is.. on how to make her birthday as special as I can. I am already inviting a ~special guest~ (this one guy that she has a huge crush on, he's supposed to act like he can't come hang out with us and then BAMM show up out of nowhere to surprise her) then I am going to end up decorating her hotel room in ~princess~ stuff lol and yes, I am getting her a tiara for her to wear around all night :)

For the majority of Saturday night 9pm-? we'll be at the hotel drinking so.. yeah. I am also getting her a strawberry cheesecake which will serve as her "cake". We were also thinking about going to Six Flags but erm.. $50/60 a ticket per person.. EEK lol

TQC, I have been at this job for two months and as hard as I try to overcome it, it is not my pacing. I have several odd responsibilities that come at random, it's extremely sporadic and unstructured, and some things I do maybe once every three weeks that I forget very quickly how to do (so when they come up again I'm supposedly trained, but IDK WTF to do)... and from what my boss says, most people get the hang of this job after two weeks and I still don't. My pacing is more of a specifically focused one, I like to have a handful of regular responsibilities and I kick ass at those, but any more than that and I tend to get easily disorganized and stressed and forget what I'm doing and make frequent mistakes.

I'm looking for another job, though I won't leave this one until I have another lined up. But that's not my point.

So my work has this policy about weather emergencies.....

"If the emergency level is high in an employee's county of residence, but not in the county where their workplace resides, the employee make take PTO. An employee should always consider their safety first."

Now...between yesterday when i left work...and this morning...it dropped a 1/2 inch of ice and 4-5 inches snow. All counties in the area were on a Level 2 emergency.

So I called my office, saying that I would take one of the PTO days I have (since I have like 8.5

Well, I got an email basically stating that I needed to come in and that my PTO wouldn't be honored.

So I got to drive on the ice rinks that are the roads right outside of my house....

Curious question for those of you who smoke cloves...

What are your favorite kind of cloves? I like specials, but all of my friends think they suck and prefer blacks. It would seem the general population would agree, because most of the time when I go to buy a pack, they'll try to give me blacks if I don't specify. I didn't even realize blacks were cloves, until my friends started smoking them. I don't think they were around when I started smoking 9-10 years ago.

I also recently went to Florida, and the gas station next to our hotel had like six different kinds of cloves. Is this common in places that aren't LA? I bought a pack of the cherry ones; they're not bad. How are the others? I wasn't even sure what the distinction was on some of them.

1. Do you watch the TV program "You Are What You Eat"?

2. What does your "table" look like this week? (For our purposes, we'll say starting Sunday-today)
» for those of you who don't watch the show, Gillian, the holistic nutritionist host, makes the person keep a food diary for a week of everything they eat/drink. Then she takes the list, and lays out all those items on a table.

Do you have a friend/relative/some person you barely know who seems perfectly sane and intelligent IRL, but online they're complete moronic douches? If so, will you tell me about them?

What about the opposite issue? Have you ever met anyone who was well-spoken and interesting online, but IRL was a fucking socially inept nutcase (or any other variety of crazy)? Stories pls.

Post formal interview thank you note

I had an interview on Monday and just realised I should have sent a thank you note after wards and I'm working on it now. I'd never heard of sending a thank you note until I read TQC, oddly enough. Go American Public School systems.

I was very nervous and I stuttered quite a bit, but I think she liked some of the things I said.

What should I say in my thank you note that lets her know that I'm not normally jittery like that and that I really like the job and want it badly while sounding professional and not needy?

Giggleprint or Similar?

My mother just moved here and is starting up her own business. In the past, when she's done this before, she just got by on word of mouth, but I think it would be really nice for her (or me) to have business cards to hand out to people who are interested.

I googled "free business cards" since my friend mentioned a web site but she couldn't remember the name. I found one called Giggleprint and I think, based on the sounds she made when she was trying to remember it, LOL, it's the one. Obviously, neither of us can be sure since she still doesn't remember. :p

Has anyone here ever used Giggleprint or a similar service and can you offer me any advice on sites to check out or avoid in this kind of thing? Thanks!

I just recently got a hold of some songs from the musical Annie.  It's my favorite musical and only one of the very few musicals I like.

1 - Which country has the strangest money you've come across?

2 - What are you listening to a lot recently?

3 - Wanna be Last.fm friends? Here's me.

1 - I think Australian coins are weird (the 50c has like 12 sides or something) and the $2 is smaller than the $1, which is incredibly annoying coming from New Zealand.

Also, my brother has some coins from Swaziland which are like, rounded squares. And another one looks sort of frilled, almost like a flower or something.

2 - Hanson

My vocabulary is failing me

When you have negative biases against a race, that's racism. Obviously. Against a gender, it's sexism. Okay.
What's it called when it's against a specific nationality (which isn't comprised of a single race)? Or other kind of grouping of people? "Bookclubbers are all illiterate morons"

This was inspired by a post last night but definitely not directed at anyone.  I just realized I couldn't think of the word for it. Then this morning one of my idiot neighbors was ranting about the French.

Happy Hump Day!

Sesame Street Part II

Based on a conversation in my post last night about the Yip Yips, I felt the following clip sounded insanely familiar-specifically the n-n-n part, but I couldn't think of the song it reminded me of. We decided, that it was influenced by a a mixture of popular songs of the time. So-

Bleaching, do you DO it?

How often do you bleach your hair? I ask because I'm conflicted, I get information saying to NOT bleach my hair twice in a year and yet there are entries of people who say they bleach their hair every two months. I figure can bleaching your hair be that bad? I know it can really tear up your hair and kill the texture.. (I'm talking getting it professionally done, I don't consider doing it at home an option.) Thanks!
