Which seems like the best choice for living arrangements for four months?

A.  My own room for $350 a month with housemates that are a girl I know pretty well and a boy I don't know at all.

B.  $175 a month housemate is a girl I hang with all the time and know really well but we would be converting the living room into a room for me.

do you think these shoes would be formal enough to wear as a bridesmaid? we are wearing pretty standard satin-y bridesmaid dresses and need black shoes. i'm trying to find something without much of a heel so i don't trip myself and i could wear them again.

1. Has an ex of yours ever come out of the closet?
2. How long was it after you broke up?
3. Were you completely surprised or could you sort of see it coming?
4. Did they date other people of the opposite sex after you and before coming out?
5. How quickly did it get old to hear, "I bet you turned him/her gay, lolol"?

Hey, i hope this is allowed...
I'm helping my sister with her wedding stuff, and we're working on invitations. We came across an idea and I was wondering if anybody had any idea where I might find the border used

http://i27.tinypic.com/15xaji1.jpg

here? I googled photoshop divider brushes, photoshop ornamental brushes, flourish brushes, dividers... everything I could think of, but to no avail. Is it even a photoshop brush? I don't know, but we'd really like to use it, or something similar. Any help would be appreciated.

thanks in advance.

miss_klutz, is that you?

Every time I shop on the Urban Outfitters site, and I go to check out, it remembers my email address as some complete strangers. I'm not really logged in (so I shouldn't really be concerned), It just has an email address (that isn't mine) in the email field and asks me for the password (which obviously I don't know, because it isn't me.)

Does this happen to anyone else?

I thought to ask here, because when it just happened, the email address was was oddly similar to a regular TQCer's username. then when I went to check out, it said I had already added a pair of $60 vans to my cart.
Why is this happening? Should I message this TQCer asking them if they recently bought vans/if it's her email?

wouldn't it be REALLY weird if it WAS a TQC member's email?

I just stayed up all night baking (It's a stress reliever for me) because I was too nervous to sleep. Now I have to go out till at least mid afternoon (2-3pm), but most likely even longer, with no sleep. I don't function well with no sleep.

What the hell can I do to keep myself awake/semi-focussed? Coffee does almost nothing for me. I've tried Red Bull when I've been this tired before and it did nothing either, are any other energy drinks more effective? Suggestions please :(

TQC, I just woke up (which is weird because I went to bed like 4 hours ago), with this crazy hankering for Starbucks. It was like Christmas morning, I woke up like, "TODAY I WILL GET STARBUCKS AND IT WILL BE AWESOME." It's all I can think about. I'm not even drunk.

1.) What should I get from Starbucks? I haven't been there in ages.

2.) If I told you that I'm going to beg this pub for a job, would your answer for 1.) change?

3.) How exactly does one beg for a job while holding on to at least one strand of dignity?

Romance Movies

I am looking for a romance movie made from 1970's onwards that may or may not star an english male as the lead character. Anything really mushy and lovey dovey, something that is predictable, something that they fight the obvious. Something like this new movie coming out called, "The Accidental Husband". Heck maybe some romance that has a good laugh in it, a klutzy character perhaps or something? I dunno. As long as it's a romance and really sappy and lovey dovey.

So any romance movie ideas?

I have 1014 RAM in this machine at current. I do indeed need more.
Where can I find really cheap RAM? How much would you suggest to make my machine not ass?
My laptop is under warranty. Do I need to bring it into the store I bought it from to have them install my RAM? Would doing otherwise void a warranty? (It's from Fry's)

Standing in Line

On Saturday I went to a car wash. It's the kind where you give them your car and then go pay at the register while they make your ride sparkle.

The register is in this little room with some snacks, air fresheners, and other auto related items. I stood in line behind two other guys.

The first guy finished paying and walked out. Then while the next guy was paying, a woman who was looking at snacks when I first walked in came and stood sort of off to the side of me. Then when the guy in front of me finished paying and walked out, the woman went to the cashier and began her transaction.

Me: "Not going to stand in line then?"

Her: "What? I was standing in line."

Me: "No, you were over there picking out snacks."

Her: "I was in line behind that guy." *points to dude who just walked out*

Me: "Uh-huh."

Her: *nervous laugh* "You have a nice day."

Me: *silence while thinking 'fuck off'*

Someone tells you that they might be doing something the following night, but see you soon. You want to do something the following night so you email them saying that if they're not doing something, and you understand if they have to work/go out, then it'd be really good if we could do something, and if they want to meet early they're going to have to text message you to say so, because you're out during the afternoon.
You get home, after your outing, there's no response via email, and no text. This is someone who is on the computer a lot and who checks their email a lot.

How do you get rid of the smell of sick?

My flatmate came home rather pissed on Friday and managed to be sick all over his bed and mattress. He's cleaned the mattress and his bedsheets and is constantly spraying air freshener Febreeze. He left his window open most of the weekend. But still, the smell of sick lingers. I have the door to my room open (at the other end of the hallway) and I can smell it from there.

Of course, I could kill my flatmate but then I'd be in the flat with the smell of a dead body AND vomit ;)

I'm applying for jobs right now and there's one that sounds really cool and the woman e-mailed me back asking to set up an interview. The problem though is that it's pretty far away and I don't drive. It will take me an hour and half to get there on the bus. It's near where my boyfriend works though so he could drop me off in the mornings and then I would only have to take the bus home one way. The pay is decent enough that in a couple paychecks I would be able to buy a used car.

My boyfriend thinks it's too far away and I shouldn't even interview. I'm tempted to though because I like the idea of the job.

What should I do, TQC?

EDIT: I should also add that even though I think it sounds like a cool job there are pretty high chances I could get something similar that's closer. It's not a career type job, if that makes sense.

Anyone have Trust Insurance in Michigan?

Does anyone here live in Michigan?

If so, have you heard of "Trust Insurance" company?

If you have, do you have a phone number for the insurance company?

I live in Georgia and my car got side-swiped in Atlanta by a Michigan woman who listed "Trust Insurance" as her car insurance company. She did not give me her policy number or a phone number for the insurance company, although I do have a license plate number for the car she was driving (her sister's car). A Google search of the insurance company name (and state) turns up a bunch of different companies with the words "trust insurance" in them, but none that are solely named "Trust Insurance." I've been trying to get hold of her for the past 5 weeks but she keeps avoiding my phone calls, so I'm resorting to contacting her insurance company directly.

I checked my billing transactions to make sure I wasn't hallucinating and I found a payment where I paid off all the outstanding value, which was greater than what is the current limit.


My question is, WTF? Has this ever happened to you? What'd you do? What should I do other than just call? Also, I'm not super educated on the ways of life and finances (other than interest rates and what the average joe might know) but it doesn't seem like they'd be able/they would change my limit so drastically without any notice or consent on my part. I haven't gone like...delinquent on anything and I don't have a thousand credit cards or loans taken out. :( I'm so confused and upset right now!!

How does tape react to heat? Does anything weird happen?

See, I've been thinking of getting rope lights.. and fuck it, why not just stick it up with some tape? I was thinking duct tape, clear duct tape, or just some of that clear packaging tape.

But lights get hot, obviously.. and I'm not sure what that'll do to the tape, if anything.

Electrical tape comes to mind.. but I don't think it'll stick to the wood worth shit.

• What does your natural body odor smell like?
My sweat smells like red bean buns.

I have already deep-fried hot dogs, oat bread, a plethora of vegetables, a pork cutlet, and some cheese (over the span of several years).

1. TQC, have any of you ever been to court, not counting jury duty? Why?

2. Do you ever think rape is justified?
(I only ask this because an ex-friend of mine has been arguing with me for weeks about it, seeing as he raped someone. Though he doesn't think he did. sigh.)

3. Why is it so damned hot in April in CANADA? :(

I was doing my laundry today when the machine pretty much exploded.  The door flew open and water flooded everywhere.  I was certainly the most popular person in the laundry room today. :(

Will you tell me about an unfortunate laundry experience you dealt with?

If you were FORCED to fight in a war, but it could be any previous war in history, which would you pick? what about which side?

This happened recently near where I live.
Long story short, an attorney saw a cop park illegally of a (sit-down) restaurant and wait around for his food. The attorney wrote him a citizen-initiated violation. The officer was parked next to a "No Parking" sign and the tickets could add up to $540.

So...
Do you think police should be able to park illegally in order to pick up food while on duty so they can respond to an emergency quicker, or no, they should follow the law like everyone else?

ETA: The officer responded to the Attorny's argument by saying "If someone broke into your house, would you rather have the police be able to park in front of your house or have to park three blocks away and walk there?"

There was another earthquake in my state at 12:30 AM. I live near one of the biggest fault lines in the country (I'm just outside of St. Louis), but these are the first ones I've ever felt in my entire 22 years in the region.

TQC, will a big quake hit and make StL collapse into the center of the earth?

If it does, which baseball team should I root for when the Cardinals no longer exist?

Ensouling Angel

(If you somehow haven't watched Angel season4 yet, years after it aired, and don't want to be spoiled, don't read this, or the rest of the internet)

In mid-season 4 (Awakening/Soulless), the Angelettes decide to remove Angel's soul, so they can talk to Angelus about The Beast. They go about this by the use of a dark mystic. Why did they use this method, when they were able to access Angelus in season 1 (or 2?) by getting him high?
