Which are you more persistent at doing...

An important, worthy task which you are forced to do (by your parents, teacher, job, etc.)


An unnecessary, just-for-the-hell-of-it task which you decided to take up of your own will?


For me, it's the second one. Always.

My four-month-old son woke up 45 minutes ago. I already fed him, but he's wide awake now. We have to be at some parade at 8:00 today/tomorrow/whatever you want to call it and I haven't slept since last night (but my husband did let me sleep until 10 today since he was off) Do I...

Let him keep watching The Oblongs and hope he falls asleep again
Give him a bath now and start getting ready for the day
Lay the baby on the couch with me, go to sleep, and hope he falls asleep, too
Take a handful of Vicodin, wake up my husband, and tell him it's his turn to stay up with the baby all night long
Something else - I'll tell you in the comments.

 What's the cheapest way to travel from Milwaukee, WI to Arkadelphia, AR?

I thought taking the train would be cheaper than driving, but it seems like it might not be.  I have no idea how much it would cost to drive down there, or how to find a cheap train ticket.  Does Greyhound go that far? 

ALSO, completely unrelated:

Tell me your travel horror stories.  Like, lost your passport, got in trouble with the mob, car broke down, got lost, mugged, attacked, scammed, etc.  Gipsies, anyone?


You've seen those really invasive pictures of various celebrities taken by the paparazzi. (Of them sunbathing at their house or having a private party type thing) If you were a famous celebrity what would they catch you doing right now?

Me: I'm sitting in a clear photo zone since I'm right next to two huge sliding doors, they'd catch me without sleep for nearly 15 hours. I've been on the computer for just as long so I don't look my best from STARING at the computer for so long. Plus, I'm wearing not so flattering outfit since I'm in my pajama's. And my hair is a mess as well.

What are you doing on this nice Monday holiday?

Me: I'm trying to finish as many assignments as I can for school and then it's off to a theater rehearsal. I wish I could just sleep instead though.

I know I left my Sims 2 discs in my friends car, but she claims they're not there. :( Why would she lie to me? I don't know how to deal with a betrayal like this, TQC~

But in all seriousness she's really bad at looking for things in her car. How do I convince her to let me take a look?

What if, by some odd, cosmic chance, they're not in there? What do I do then?! Where would my game go between getting out of her car and going into my house?

Music. Makes the people, come together, yeah....

Name some musicians that you like that no one else seems to like(at least in the environment you're in)

I enjoy: Prince, Madonna, Nas, Jay-Z, Kanye West, Janet Jackson, Justin Timberlake, Nelly Furtado, Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani and the Black Eyed Peas.

While all of those are quite mainstream and very popular, at my school, no one seems to like any of those artists and i'm considered a freak of nature because I do....

So I want to get a new laptop. I've heard enough horror stories about Windows Vista that I'm probably going to avoid it. I've found some good deals on laptops with Windows XP from Dell and Lenovo. What I don't like about Windows is the worrying about viruses and spyware. On my current PC, I keep having to remove spyware in spite of antivirus protection. Also, in my experience, Windows sort of deteriorates over time. It does serve all of my purposes, though.

I'm also thinking about getting a MacBook. The screen is a little bit smaller than what I prefer, but the larger MacBook Pro is quite a bit more expensive. What I like about the idea is that I'd still be able to do the things I already do, and the OS is resistant to viruses (though not as immune as some people believe, according to my readings). I am also trying to figure out if it's more reliable, less likely to become outdated, more likely to last, etc.

I've been asking for feedback from friends. I use a Mac at work and have used them at school, and I never noticed many problems; but some people on my friends list said they misbehave as much as Windows and they are harder to fix when something goes wrong.

I also thought about Linux, but I doubt that I'd be able to get it to work with all of my tasks/files. I used to use Linux, and I found it difficult to fix when something went wrong, which something often did. I guess I'm just not enough of a geek. :P

So what do you guys think? Would you go with an XP laptop or a MacBook? Any experiences or opinions to share?

So tomorrow is my 21st birthday. Hooray!

I'm going out to dinner with my boyfriend, my roommate, and my best friend to celebrate. We're going to get sushi.

I kind of want a birthday cake tomorrow, but I feel like it would be really rude to ask my friends to buy me one. I was thinking of buying one myself.

The thing is, I don't have a car, and so I would have to ask either my roommate or my boyfriend to drive me to the nearest bakery, and that just seems awkward. I get the idea that if I did that, they would think I'm trying to drop a hint that THEY should pay for my birthday cake, when that's not my intention at all. I just really want cake tomorrow. :)

It also seems kind of awkward that I'm buying my own birthday cake.

I was thinking of making my own birthday cake (I love to bake), but that seems kind of weird, too. I also don't have all the ingredients for the cake, and I would again have to ask my roommate or my boyfriend to give me a ride to the grocery store ingredients for my cake. Which again kind of seems like the same situation as when they would drive me to to the bakery.

Should I ask my friends to buy me a birthday cake, buy my own, or make my own? Or maybe another idea?

And if you don't care: what kind of booze should I buy tomorrow?

Is sake any good?

Lighten up, it's a holiday!

I'm playing Grand Theft Auto IV (shut up) and the cost of a handjob from a hooker is $20. A blowjob is $50 and actual sex is $70. A friend and I were discussing this and wondering if these are the going rates in real life for a casual hooker on the street/john hookup. Does anyone have any experiences that they would care to admit to? ;)

When was the last time you felt like you could just kick yourself?

I spent all day yesterday being upset and bored out of my mind. Then, this morning, I think "Oh, it's around that time of year, when is the Indy 500?" because I love it and watch it every year and it was YESTERDAY. Plus, I've been rooting for Scott Dixon for like five years and he won. I am so angry with myself.

Did you watch the Indy 500? Do you normally?

I've been told that you're not supposed to wear suits to magazine interviews and nothing too dressy up. The atmosphere, I'm told, is very laid back like jeans and stuff. I have a limited selection of my business clothes because I'm not at home right now... what do I wear? This is my first real interview (well, technically I had interview for Nordstrom, but those don't really count) and I'm nervous about not looking too dressed up or looking like I'm dressed and ready to go out clubbing.

Do you think a dress with leggings and high heels will be fine?

Following a rather rude encounter involving a gentleman with whom you have been involved in a rather large number of underground cartels involving the transportation and sales of various illegal substances, you feel morally obligated to cease operations and begin an honest life as a merchant selling various types of sausages. A problem, however, quickly arises whenever you realize that you have signed a binding contract with your business associate, and any attempts to leave the organization would only result in what is commonly referred to as "castration", with a specific mention outlined in page five, section A, sub-section D-1.

Suffice to say it is most unpleasant.

However, you have established non-contractual contacts without various members of other organizations who would be all but thrilled to assist you in ending your contract. The only problem presented, however, is that there are a few of the non-contractual organization contacts are using this as a means to acquire you and your known business savvy--as well as any possible drugs you might gather prior to your leaving your current employment. It rather puts a hinder on selling sausages, yes?

Understanding all of these things, do you:
1 - Use your contacts with the Dark Magic Society to end your contract with the Cartel via a large, fire-breathing dragon-type monster?
2 - Simply use your combat skills and end the life of your partner and the contract through those means?
3 - Accept the terms of the Prostitutioner's Guild and allow them to end the contract for you, also taking a position as Prostitute's Guard?
4 - Accept the terms of the presented by a collection of Maintenance Workers who double as Thieves and allow them to end the contract for you, also taking a position as a Scout for the organization?
5 - Decide that all possible alternatives are too depressing, as you will never sell your sausages, and slit your wrists in the moonlight?
6 - Bludgeon your business partner to death with a large salami?

Ebay Fairness

Long Story as Short as It's Getting:

I bought a (supposed) BNWT Tokidoki bag last year from an ebayer for $200 + $15 s&h, cut the tags off and stuck it in my storage trunk without really looking it over since the outside appeared fine. My ferret got cancer. To replenish the vet fund, I sold this bag on ebay BNWOT and a buyer elected to buy-it-now for $199.99 + $10 s&h. I stuck the tags in it for her (I had saved them) and sent it on it's way, but didn't inspect it before wrapping it up and shipping it off.

She gets it and swears it's got signs of being used, including ink spots on the inside but nothing on the outside. I apologise, tell her I never carried it, but never checked it either, and ask what I can do to fix it. She wants me to refund like $70-80. I don't know why she would lie and she has good feedback, but I think that's really steep. Obviously I wouldn't put the tags in there and not at least TRY to cover signs of use if I had lied, and I have 100% feedback.

I've been sitting on this all weekend and need to figure out what to do. I don't want to screw her, but I feel I could have gotten more than $130 even if I HAD known about the condition (if it's true) and listed it appropriately but now I don't have that chance.

Boo to drunken fucktards

Ok TQC, last night someone got mad at me and, in a drunken rage, FUCKED UP my car door. Like, they opened it way past the point of where it's supposed to open, and threw their whole body weight on it several times. Then they slammed it closed... except it wouldn't close. So they slammed it back and forth about five times.

Needless to say, bitch is paying for the repairs.

Basically, my car door doesn't close anymore. When I try to push it closed, it springs back. And when I press my body weight against it, it will finally shut... but not all the way. It's always at that awkward half way point.

I'm going to a repair shop tomorrow for an estimate. Any idea how much this will be, though? If it matters, it's a 2007 Dodge Caliber.

(Btw, the arguement was really dumb. They said Hilary Clinton didn't deserve to be president because she couldn't please her husband, causing him to cheat on her. And when I said that was really ignorant, their ass went crazy)

more school stuff...

So, I'm writing my master's thesis on Cloisters. I'm hoping to get in touch with come nunnaries/monasteries and see if I could get thoughts from the monks and nuns about Cloisters, and about their daily lives. I don't know much of anything about nuns/monks/Catholics, but from their websites, they seem like they are happy to talk to others about their lives.
Do you think that they might be up for that? Do you think that monks/nuns would care about some girl just writing a paper?

My sister switched users and left her music playing. It's looping over and over, and I don't know how to get it to stop. It is the Music & Lyrics soundtrack.  Is there any way I can close the program (Rhapsody) without logging on her name?
Problem solved :)

What are some good songs about highschool being the best days of our lives or just best days of our lives in general?
I'm doing a project for video, and I need those kinds of songs.
I have Best Days by graham colton. But I need more songs. Because my slide show is 13 minutes so far...

1. Any tips for going through amphetamine/Adderall/general stimulant withdrawal?

2. What do you think of saunas? I don't really get the concept of them. How are they good for you?

3. Did you ever throw up on the bus or at lunch as a kid? Is it still mortifying?

hey guys. i have an interview tomorrow and i figured this is one of my only shots of actually getting an interview and i looked my school's career services and all the advice and realized that i should rework my cover letter because even though i thought it was good… it could be altered to be better.

i sent my resume/cover letter already when i applied for the job but i’m bringing a portfolio and was thinking, maybe i’ll leave her my new cover letter? lol

do you think i should bother rewriting my cover letter? will she notice? thanks!

and a better question, what is your favorite breakfast food?

Are queefs funny?
I'm trying to decide.

The brakes on my new old car sometimes get really, really sensitive. The slightest touch makes the entire car shudder to a complete halt. Sometimes it sounds like something's dragging when I'm braking lightly. Other times, nothing is wrong.
What is it?
practically perfect

So, TQC...
I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the most well-versed person when it comes to etiquette, so I come to you...
My husband and I are about to buy our first house.  We move in somewhere around the 17th of June.  Would it be inappropriate for us to throw a housewarming party for ourselves?  Is that something that somebody else should throw for us (along the lines of a baby shower or a bridal shower)?  Or is it perfectly okay for us to throw one for ourselves?  We don't want to be tacky about it or to make it look like we're begging people to bring us housewarming gifts, especially since we just got married a year ago and got a ton of great gifts then... but we do have a few friends who have talked about buying us some housewarming gifts (like a grill, for instance, which is something we could sure use!).  We are by no means trying to be gift-mongers... but hey, if people want to buy us stuff, we want to give them the chance, y'know? :P
So, what's the right way to do this?

ETA: Completely unrelated, but...
For those of you who smoke hookah, what's your favorite flavor?  My husband and I are chilling out with some passion fruit & tutti frutti mixed together, with raspberry vodka & water in the bottom.  Yumm!
Do you ever mix flavors?  What's your favorite mix?

 I'm trying to download these programs on this website and it's not working.  I can't figure out what to do to make it work.  Can someone help me?

I get this vague error message when I try to download it.  If I click on details, I get a window with three tabs ("launched file" "exception" and "wrapped exception"), each of which contains lists of Java, which I can't comprehend.

Does anyone know what's wrong and how to fix the problem?

The guy I'm going out with told me he was married and has a son. Then he tells me he will always care about someone else no matter what (not the ex-wife) even though they've never been together. They're both incredibly long and complicated stories. We are in a LDR (England and Canada) and I will be back in Canada in less than 3 weeks.

Why the fuck do I still like him? Should I DTMFA? Am I crazy for considering NOT doing that?

AAAAAUUUUGH. I have a final exam in 2 days. How can I make myself concentrate?

another question...sorry! D:

I know I post a lot of college related questions but I can't seem to get as many answers from college related

I know I want to go a traditional college for an associates degree [2 years] and I want to major in Arts and Humanities. When I google career paths I get kind of confused mainly because this degree is so broad. I want to know specifically what kinds of jobs I can get besides teaching and management. Any clues? I REALLY do not want to teach. Would it be better for me to get a 4 year degree? I know that a lot of people start out with this major and then after taking several classes decide on a more focused major later on.

Also, I was going to a technical school for graphic design last year for 4 months [hated it] and dropped out of course. I owe them about $7,316 and it's a loan so of course there's interest. My plan was to pay off the loan and THEN go to another college because I'd hate to have to combine that loan with the loans I will be needing for the new college, you know? That just feels like too much debt to me. Then again I can always make a payment plan, right? It will take me a LONG ass time to pay that loan off and I'd really rather not wait too long to start another college...considering how the tuition costs go up every year. :/ Should I wait it out and pay off the money I already owe or combine the loans together and worry about it after I graduate?

Have you ever had a random crush on someone of the same sex as you?

I know a girl and she's super hot and I get all nervous when I see her. I'm married to a man and have had no previous interest in girls aside from a couple drunken nights, lol.
