CSI:  Episodes Gum Drops and Post Mortem

What music was used when the CSI dude is looking for the little girl?  It was also used in the Post Mortem episode.  Very ... yearning sounding music. 

I'm sure it was used in more than those two episodes.  I'm hoping it's part of a longer piece that I can download.

Apparently, earlier today, my roommate saw an official-looking notice taped to the front of our building. It had a city insignia, etc. She couldn't read what it said, and since she was already driving away when she noticed it, she wasn't able to stop and check it out.

Now it's gone and nobody knows what it said. Since it looked so important, I'm really curious.

TQC, what did the notice say?
misc - not a weapon

I began knitting a few years ago and have picked up crocheting recently. While it's a good hobby, I found that I was accumulating all these cute scarves, and other items that I didn't need so I began giving them away (I've also sold a couple). Currently I'm crocheting a baby blanket for a friend who is expecting.

My questions are:

Do you knit or crochet (or both)? If you don't do either, do you sew or do any other kind of craft related things? When did you start? Who taught you? Why do you do it? And what do you do with the pieces after you've completed them? Out of all the pieces you have done, which one is your favorite? If you have pictures of your favorite pieces I'd love to see them!

I don't much like the taste of hemp but I bought some "chocolate hemp beverage" to try it out. I think it tastes pretty horrible and have just about a whole liter of it but don't want to throw it out. What can I seriously do with it? Can you think of a recipe, like a cake or muffin I could cook it into?

i let my friend borrow my parking pass for the weekend a few weekends ago. she forgot to give it back to me and i forgot to get it back from her (my car has been broken down for about a month now). since then, i've gotten two tickets for not having my parking pass.

she said that she'd pay for one of them.
i know that it's partly my fault for not remembering to get them back from her.

so, i guess, my question, is, if you were here, what would you do in this situation?

she hasn't given me any money or mentioned it since then, and i don't know how to bring it up.

as of now, i'm out $50. : /

Has anybody ever had a person hit on them while you were working?
Is it half a hour, or half an hour?

I work at a hotel. I totally had a guy come in about half a hour ago, and tell me that if I "needed a break from work" that I was "more than welcome to come over to his room". He was pretty good looking and we had nice small talk, but I don't think that I'm gonna go over to his room, which is right next door to the lobby.

Also, I say half a hour, but it sounds funny.

ok, so my sister and i are kinda freaked out and need advisement.
a little while ago, my stepdad sort of stumbled around the first floor of our house looking like he was maybe going to vomit, then went up stairs, then came back down a couple minutes later, stumbled a bit more, didn't answer for a minute after i asked if he was ok, and then he said something i didn't understand, so i said what? and he said "i'm ok, i just had to get starly out of the charwell." (charlie is one of our dogs.) he was enunciating fine, though he seemed a little annoyed at having to repeat himself, so i didn't question the jumbled words. then he put two of the dogs outside and left one inside, and went to bed. leaving the dogs outside and the door unlocked, which is pretty out of character. he didn't seem drunk, really. i've never seen him drunk enough to do anything worse than maybe be melancholy. we looked all over and didn't find any alcohol, though we did find an airplane size unopened bottle of jack daniels. so, tqc, what should we do, besides sit around and worry?

ETA: we woke him and our mom up, we're pretty sure it was just sleepwalking. so crisis averted, though not without a considerable amount of stress and fright. thanks.

As of tomorrow, I will be a part-time student at RISD, as opposed to a full-time Glass major with one bajillion classes. I will be enrolled in two interesting but stress-free liberal arts classes...that's it. I have five days a week free.

1. What epic project should me and my similarly dropped-out roommate begin? It has to be utterly ridiculous. We want to do something involving our entire campus, and possibly a lot of resin casts of banana slugs.

2. What job should I get? Providence has the regular variety of services. Waitress? Pizza girl? Theater employee? Coffee person? Retail?

3. What else should I do to occupy myself (besides finding myself, going to therapy ewwww, etc.)?

4. Does being a member of TQC totally spoil you and make you expect about 10 replies to posts you make in other communities within the first 30 seconds?

Do curls stay in your hair longer/better when you hair is dirty or clean?
Edit: My hair is long, wavy and frizzy if I don't put anything in it. I'm guessing I'll just have to figure this out on my own.

Do you go to a gym? Which one?
I recently started going to Planet Fitness with my friend.

How often do you go/how long do you stay?
We went three times this week, and worked out for about an hour and a half each time.

This milk is so hardcore

I'm drinking milk right now. I got a whole fridge full, there was some illegal immigrants outside Krogers tonight and they were selling some good shit that fell off the side of this milk shipment. It's so fucking good. I got a major milk high, I'm totally trippen.

This summer my parents are bringing my grandparents up to Maine for a mini-vacation. While they're away my boyfriend and I are going to watch their house, which is in a pretty rural part of Vermont, and take care of their pets. What should we do while we're there? One of the things I definitely want to do is go for a hike on their property. We'll only be there 3-4 days, so nothing epic :)

Do you believe that when a man and a woman go on a date, the man always pays no matter what?

What are your rules for who pays?

How do homosexual couples make their rules for who pays?

Edit to clarify The reason I ask the third question is because I've seen a lot of things lately saying the man always pays. And I really want to ask the people who say that exactly what you do when there is no man/nothing but men.

So the more accurate way to phrase it would be "If you think the man should always pay, then how do you believe same sex couples should decide who picks up the check?" Because if you (like me) think the one who asks pays, then obviously that applies to all couples.

To ze Job Corps!

But I have questions about them. I've already looked at the website and called the number, where they said I would be sent a package in the mail with brochures and info and was given the number for the local admissions office where an admissions counselor could answer all my questions.

Except I called twice and both times I got voicemail so I finally just left a message. But I wanna know now. I've heard some pretty terrible things about Job Corps and how they're as strict as being in Basic Training for the military, but that was by ghetto wigger douches who got kicked out for smoking pot. But still... I don't want to run into any trouble just because of my habits and the way I look.

So have any of you been through Job Corps and can help me with any of these questions?

Am I going to have to take my piercings out? I have one visible facial piercing, and it's not quite to the point of me taking it out for long periods of time and it still being okay. I know I'd have to take it out for a job, but I'm going to go get my high school diploma. And to that same point, am I going to have to cover up my tattoos?

Am I going to have to stop smoking cigarettes? I tried to quit once, and I was a dire bear with +20 Anger Issues the entire week until my boyfriend finally threw a pack at me and told me to smoke up and bring back the girlfriend he loved.

Speaking of my boyfriend! Am I going to be able to see him? I'm not talking some delicious downtime lovin' in the dorms, but will he be able to come and visit me while I'm not in classes? Will I be able to keep my cell phone to keep contact with the outside world? Having my cell phone is kind of important. I'm going to be teaching my boyfriend to give my cat her insulin shots, but I know the first couple of times I'm going to have to talk him through it.

Are there rules concerning the dorms? Am I going to have a roommate? Can I put stuff up in my room? Is there a specific lights out time? Can I lock my room so no one can get in and possibly damage/steal my stuff? Would I get in trouble for putting my poster of The Kiss up? Or any of my Celtic stuff?

Yeah, it's a lot of questions, but it's a big step for me to be taking in life, so I want to make sure it's the damned right choice before throwing myself into it. And I don't know if the counselor will tell me the truth, either. I went to a summer camp and I asked them a lot of questions and they ended up throwing me out of the camp because they had a rule about the dress code that included no unnatural hair colors and I had a streak of blue in my bangs. So I'm always a little suspicious.

A Dilemma

I need advice, TQC ...

Do I stick with safe, stable, and secure ... or do I go for passionate, impulsive, and uncertain?

Edit for More Info: My husband and I have come to a point in our marriage where we are contemplating an amicable split. Nothing is really WRONG in the marriage ... it's just a crossroads that we seem to have come to. He's the safe, stable, and secure option - I know what he's going to do once he's out of the military, I know all of his little quirks, he puts up with me, etc.

I've met this guy at work. We're ... the best way to put it is that we're dopplegangers, or at least it feels that way. The only area that we've found so far that we disagree on is politics, and that's only mildly. And the chemistry? Through the roof, although nothing untoward has happened since I'm married. He's the passion, impulsiveness, and uncertainty.

Son of Edit: The snarky responses made me laugh. The serious ones ... well, you're entitled to your opinions, of course. However, I think that asking for serious advice on teh intarwebz is kind of retarded ... therefore, this post was really only 5% serious. [shrug]

Backstory: Imagine, if you will, that you've been friends with this married couple for about a year now. The woman is of mixed heritage (part black, part white, part Native American) and the man is pretty much 100% Anglo-Saxon.
A few weeks ago, the man gets drunk over at your house, seriously trashed, and voices concerns over his ability to love his future children if they don't look like him. You're shocked of course, because you're thinking "Why would he marry interracially if color were a problem?" etc. You keep it to yourself because you seriously don't know what to make of it.
Lately, though, they've been fighting more and more, mainly over his choice of occupation and her incompatibility with that lifestyle. It doesn't sound like race has entered into it from what you can tell. However, it seems the fights are getting more serious and, due to his occupation, it's getting to a point where they're going to have to make some serious life decisions shortly.

My question is as follows:
1) Do you tell her what he said?
2) If so, how do you phrase it?

It seems as if it's a detail that should be a factor in her decision making process, but I've never encountered something like this and I don't know how to approach it.

I've been cracking/popping (most of) my joints since elementary school. I stopped cracking my neck when I almost hurt myself once during high school, but the rest I've still been cracking for years. I've decided it's not healthy nor safe, so I've stopped pretty much cold turkey about a week ago (the knuckles are the hardest to quit!).

Also, I've worked more than I normally do this past week at a job that requires me to be a bit physical (up and down from the floor to standing and vice versa, lifting things [though they aren't that heavy], etc).

Is a coincidence that I'm very stiff this week (and a bit sore), or is it one of the above reasons (if so, which?).

Do you think sex should be a regular part of a relationship with a significant other?

Gave my opinion on it to my girlfriend, she said I'm just like every other guy. I think that it should be a regular part of a working relationship, not on a daily basis. I think its a good way to share passion and love and it is a big part of a relationship especially when it comes to passion.

Why do i always have the worst luck ever when it comes to shopping and buying new things TQC?

I am nice to the staff, ALWAYS, and pay without hassle with no extra requests/horrible questions. But something always goes wrong. Either there's a stain I did not see, or it damages within a week, or it's ill fitting and I can't get it exchanged, etc. Recently I bought a pair of converse sneakers(I think some of you may remember) and stupidly threw away the receipt thinking it would last me for a good 2-3 years. And the canvas split away from the rubber within a week and they refused to get it exchanged! I told them to throw it away and my heart bleeds because of the money I spent for a pair of shoes that lasted ONE WEEK.

Are you anything like me? Or do you buy things that are able to last you 53265436423 years?

So, TQC. I've just moved to this place where they have what's known as 'hard water'. We're also on the top floor, with slightly lower water-pressure.

I'm finding that my hair, which used to be able to go 2-3 days between washes, is barely managing 24 hours before it starts to look limp and greasy. I've tried a few different shampoos, nothing doing. So, how do I get my hair to stay clean in a hard-water area? I'd prefer not to have to wash it every single day.

Do you think it's possible to just be really good at living?

Do you know anyone who is? What is it about them?

I'm sorry if my question doesn't make sense, but I mean it in the simplest way, someone who just has a knack for getting through life and making great decisions, I guess?

Is there anything special about where you live?

I was watching True Life - I'm Dead Broke (2005) the other day and one of the stories was set in West Plains, MO (where I live now.) It was totally shocking, because WP is such a little town with nothing to do. It was cool seeing the places I see every day on MTV!

I used to go to school in Punxsutawney, PA... Weather Capital of the World

Dear TQC,

My friend said he wanted some "packy" (paki?? packi??) and won't tell me what it is.

Do you know what "packy" is??

He hinted that it might be Massachusetts slang.

EDIT: Okay he said he wanted to buy something from the packy, and it means a package store/ place to buy alcohol. ;P Thanks.

EDITEDIT: I know what pocky is ;P. I love it.

If your roommate/significant other/etc. is busy washing the dishes (most of which you got dirty), do you feel obligated to go help if you're normally the one that cleans them?

You're dead. It's so sad. Your funeral is coming up. What are things you want to happen at your funeral?

Mass-capacity turnout in attendance
An open bar
My favorite song(s) played at various points
You're buried in your best outfit, and damn, do you look hot
At least one person flinging themselves onto the coffin as it's being lowered, in bawling protest
A DJ and dance floor at the reception after
A theme funeral. There's theme weddings. I want people to be wearing costumes
Buffet at the after-party
Lots of mourning
A number of people who were close to you, stepping up to the podium to say nice things about you
Your ex showing up, and moved to tears, full of regret that they let you go
Your closest friend emptying a forty for 'my dead homie'
A magician and bouncy house at the after-party
After the services, someone digs you up, and a recreation of Weekend at Bernies happens at the after-party
None of the above. I'm dead. There's no need for anything special. Throw me into the ground or into the fire. Whatever.

What do you want to happen to your body afterwards?

Large mausoleum. Very ornate, very important, kinda gothy
Simple tombstone
Cremation. Someone I love will keep the urn
Cremation. My ashes will be scattered at my favorite location
Creation. My ashes will reside at the cemetary
Bodyworlds. Plastinate me, baby, and let me tour the world
Throw me into the woods and let the animals eat me
Turn me into a diamond, and then turn that diamond into a piece of jewelry to be worn by a loved one
Donate my body to science
Donate my body to the necrophiliacs. I can't have sex anymore, but my body can
I want my body to be stuffed and mounted, curled up, as if I was asleep
Stuffed and mounted, arms raised, so that someone can use my body as a coatrack or umbrella rack
Fuck death. Cryogenics is the thing for me
Don't really care. I'm dead

My neighbor was just outside and proclaimed loudly "Holy shit! It's a space ship, it's a spaceship, it's actually kind of big." Was I right to not even bother looking?

I just received a puncture wound from a 3 day old bagel bite. Am I going to die?
