black widow - what do I do??

I'm pretty sure I've found a black widow in my apartment.
I live alone and I have 3 cats. The spider's web is easily where my cats could get to it, though it is out of the way for me.
It is also 12:30am.
I live in a 2 family house and my landlords live above me.

How do I deal with this spider?
Smoosh it and tell the landlords our house is infested later? Will venom get me if I smoosh it?
Leave it alone until morning and then make the landlords call an exterminator?
Call an exterminator myself?
Should I not even bother to tell the landlords?

My landlords, though nice people, are super super picky about everything. (I don't fault them, not really, for most things. They live here and it is their property, so they have a lot of standards).

can someone recommend me a book that cheered you up? the one i'm reading right now is pretty bleak and it's bumming me out a little, so i'd like something happier to read afterwards. i'm not necessarily looking for something romantic, just something that left you feeling good after you read it.


Has anyone ever used the site to book bus tickets? i am wondering whether this thing is legit cuz sometimes it offers practically free fare. What was your experience?

how old were you when you took that leap of faith step?
where you scared shitless and how did you deal?
looking back, what are your thoughts?

ie, signing a lease under your own name and moving out from your parents home for the first time or taking a job and moving to the other side of the continent, etc. it could be something big or just something that was big at the time.

What are the most accurate words which correspond to the onomotopeyic sound the action makes?
(sorry for the weird wording)

for example, the word "SH" for "shh" (not "be quiet")

I think the word "clap" is the nearest word-sound to the actual sound of a clap.

Should I bike to school? Or just take the bus?
I've never biked to school before, but I imagine it wouldn't be any faster or slower than taking the bus.

Would a 20 minute bike ride make me super tired or give me a burst of energy to last the whole day?
I've been up all night writing and essay, and I might be able to get a 45 minute nap before I have to leave for class.

So, I got a card from my grandma a couple of days ago that one of my friends that I've had since I was 4 (although I haven't seen him in a few years) had died in a horrible car accident. He's part of a family that has been very close with my grandmother for decades. So I call her last night to get an address so I send a condolence card to his family, only to find out that my grandma, who is quite elderly and can't hear well, had misunderstood the message: it wasn't the guy my age that had died, it was his father (also a wonderful man and a very good friend of our family).

But, she had already sent a condolence card...for the death of the son. When she told me this I laughed and said, "Oooooooh, no!"

So, TQC, what is the most socially stupid thing you've done lately without thinking? (The socially stupid thing here is that I laughed, not that my grandma misheard the message about the death...that was just a mistake born of her general geriatric condition).

Have you ever used or heard the term "jacking off" for female masturbation?

If you heard it used, as in playfully, not necessarily heavily crass, would it strike you as really odd, or would you just get it like any other slang? Like for a girl to say that something is jacking material or something similar.

What is your usual terminology for masturbation in a lighthearted context? Not necessarily your favorite creative euphemism, but something you'd actually say out loud without feeling awkward.

To settle a debate: Who is "bigger" in terms of fandom, Miley Cyrus or The Jonas Brothers? (not a question of whether you like either at all)

Running for Office

In running for an office that is decided by election by one's peers, is it ever acceptable to vote for yourself?

Would you vote for yourself if you were running for office?
Would it make a difference if you respected any of your fellow candidates or not?
Would the voting visibility - like an invisible election (such as voting booths or marked ballots) vs. a visible election (like a show of hands) make a difference in whether or not you were willing to vote for yourself?

For the sake of argument, say that the office in question is non-essential. Like, it's for chairman of a decorating committee or director of a charity, rather than like, the President of the United States.

So I live in the rural U.S., and there are a lot of people who have our national flag in their yards, in their windows, on their truck's radio antenna, on their horrible sweaters, etc. It's not as bad as it was after, when was that? Oh yeah SEPTEMBER ELEVENTH, but our flag is still pretty prevalent around here. None of the other countries I've been to seem to be as plastered over with their national flag as this one, even though at least one of the countries I've been to seems to have even more national pride than I've noticed here.

So, are any other countries like this, with all the flags everywhere?

And, America, WHAT'S UP WITH ALL THE FUCKING FLAGS??!? Our flag just isn't that pretty, all things considered.

Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer will try the case!

Supposing you were to come across a caveman, frozen in a block of ice. After unfreezing him, you discover that he is in fact (magically) not a modern human being but an evolutionary predecessor who originally lived thousands, if not millions, of years ago. The two of you suffer a misunderstanding of some kind, and in the heat of the moment, you shoot him! He falls to the ground dead.

You're dating someone new. They're good looking, have a great body, are funny and intelligent. On the car ride over to the restaurant, you notice that they pass a silent fart in the car. Being polite, you don't say anything. During dinner, they go to the bathroom and are gone for 15 minutes, and when they drop you off, they ask to use your bathroom again. Another 15 minutes. When he/she comes out, they admit that they have a bad case of I.B.S., which gets aggravated when they're nervous. You may have seen what it would be like to date them. Will there be a second date?

Pretty much, every person your date has been with in the past 5 years is now dead. Will there be a second date?

1. Never seen one, but during my father's birthday we received a Tornado Warning for the county and decamped from his birthday dinner to our basement, where we tried to find a place not in the path of fragile glass windows. After forty-five minutes of hearing nothing, my father - born and raised in Nebraska - went upstairs and ate his dinner, "so that the cats won't get it." Meanwhile, my Australian mother huddled in fear down in the basement, covering her babies with heavy blankets.

Turned out that a tornado did in fact touch ground five blocks from us, but was so weak that it removed a bunch of shrubbery from someone's front lawn and then melted away. All of the neighborhood kids went and stared at it the next day.

2. Ashland, Ohio. Went through a couple of Tornado Watches living in Indiana, but nothing ever touched ground.

Poll #1196453 Dating hijinks 2

You're dating someone new. They're good looking, have a sexy body, are intelligent and have a great sense of humor. You two are very compatable. However, he/she says that they're old fashioned and believes that no fussin' around should occur until the 10th date. You agree and proceed to date them. Nothing happens more than hand holding and kissing. The 10th date happens, and over a bottle of fine wine, he/she leads you back to the bedroom. You undress them and make a shocking discovery. They're not the sex you thought they were. They're a pre-op transsexual (or whatever the female equivalent is called), with a penis or vagina where there shouldn't be, and not the genital goodies you were expecting. You demand an explanation, and he/she says that they really liked you a lot and felt that if you just go to know them, you'd fall for them and ignore the physical aspect, which will be corrected in 6 months (surgery to complete the sex change). What do you do?

I like them a lot. After the 10 dates, I enjoy being with them. I support them and stay with him/her til the sex change happens
I'm outta here. This is too weird. I can't deal with this drama
WTF!? I can't date a (whatever sex you aren't attracted to). This relationship has to end here

So I have a two year old little girl. She's kinda awesome. But that's irrelevent.

Her dad has never met her. I don't know if he ever will. And her paternal grandparents don't know she exists. I don't know if they ever will.

Sometimes I think about calling them or mailing myself and being all "surprise! it's a girl! a couple years belated! teehee." but I haven't. Yet. Or ever at all? idk. I don't even know if they'd care.

So TQC, out of curiosity..... do you think it's a mother's place to tell her child's paternal grandparents about her existence just so any grandparental knowledge/decision/emotion lies in their own hands rather than the disinterested father's hands?

Or is it the mother's place to butt the eff out cause that is his family and his business to deal with?

Please opinionate.

To clarify, this isn't a "validate me" question cause I'm kind of content in my "meh" standpoint for now. Just curious what others might think.

So, sometime between 3 and 7pm yesterday, my wallet either fell or was picked out of the front of my bag in or near the university library. At 8pm yesterday it hadn't been handed in anywhere, and I retraced my steps and couldn't find it.

It had no credit cards, and not more than $3 in cash in it.

But it did have things I sort of urgently need like my health insurance card, social security card, bank keycard, drivers license, student/library card. I've filled out a police report, cancelled the bank card and ordered a new license, but the new laws for young drivers mean I can't drive until the license gets here.

you work in an office where you only have one co-worker (the other employees are above you). this co-worker makes more money than you, but does the same job. there is a pile of files that accumulates each day, but you are the only person who ever does anything about it.
how long do you do the filing before saying something? and what do you say/how do you say it to keep the tension low? do you just keep your mouth shut and not say anything at all? there is no one to complain to, so the woman has to be confronted or your mental capacity will continue to deteriorate.
also, this person is not actually working. she is surfing the internet all day. (not me. hahaha.) and when the file pile gets out of control, she pretends to be busy to avoid it (e.g. working on one file for three hours).

I have a question for anyone who has ever studied abroad or needed some kind of visa/permit to live in a country for more than just a short trip.

On July 9 I'm going to study at the University of Cape Town. I'm American and I live close to NYC, so going in person to apply at the consulate is not a problem, if that makes a difference. I need a student permit/visa to study abroad, which is supposed to take 6-8 weeks to process. Anyway, long story short, I need a bunch of other documents (including a passport which I already have, the only things that I don't have yet are a police clearance report which is supposed to take 2 weeks to come in the mail, and a letter from my insurance company which will take a few days to come in the mail). Because of the police report delay, I probably won't be able to apply for a visa until about 4 weeks before I leave the US, which of course is a problem because you're supposed to wait until you have the permit before you leave your home country.

My question is, what happens if a visa/permit doesn't arrive before your scheduled departure date? Do you think it's possible that I would have to wait in the US until it comes and arrive late to Cape Town? Could I go through customs as a tourist and then later switch to student status? Would I be unable to go abroad at all?

I sent an email to my college about it and I keep trying to get in touch with the consulate, but I was just wondering if anyone has any knowledge or experiences about people whose visa didn't come before they were supposed to leave home.

I assert that Bush Jr is a fucking tool, and the USAFA Chest-Bump is a yet another example of what an overgrown frat-rat douchebag he really is.

This seems like a long-shot, but does anyone remember that commercial from way back (can't remember exactly when) that featured Snoop Dogg tumbling down from the ceiling? I have no idea what the commercial was advertising. I want to find this commercial!

 ok, so basically two of my teachers have had a beef. Instead of leaving it outside to the streets, or handling it like adults, one has decided to become far more immature than I could have believed and asked my class to go crazy in the other teachers'.

what should i do? of course i refuse, since i have absolutely nothing against the other teacher. it's only her second year of teaching so she's rather inexperienced, but some kids leapt at the chance to destroy her classroom and see her reduced to tears. and they did.

so what to do? i'm so afraid to tell anyone. and if i do, i kind of have a reputation of being the goody two shoes, so if someone says, 'a reliable source' everyone will know it was me. and the whole school is not involved in this childish and destructive conspiracy. it's only my tiny class of 30.

Help! I know that doing right can be more important than keeping a secret, but I don't know what to do.

I've listened to a couple of songs by Tori Amos, and mostly liked them. Which album of hers should I buy?

ETA: Oh, and which Amy Winehouse album should I get my dad for Father's Day? He really got excited when they were playing a song of hers in the supermarket the other day, snapping his fingers and shit.

I was just going through some photos of mine, and happened upon several taken of me when I was very, very drunk. I'd almost forgotten how much pictures of drunk people amuse me.

TQC, will you post pictures taken of yourselves when drunk?

i know there's more than one alarm clock impaired person on this comm. you know who you are -- you know your alarm clock so well that you can shut the alarm completely off in your sleep, go back to bed, and never remember doing it when you finally wake up.

so how do you fix that problem? extra loud alarm clock? putting your clock on the other side of the room? (i can get up, turn it off, and go back to bed without opening my eyes) a bed shaking alarm clock? a clocky?

i'm thinking about living on campus next semester and this will be a srs issue. i am not a morning person and i've ended up with 8 ams all. week. long. and not by choice either. ugh.

I just saw Baby Mama. It was great...but doesn't "Rob Ackerman" sound like such a generic name? It really sounds familiar to me. Why???

The black ink cartridge in my printer has died, but I need to print a PDF file. Is there any way I can change the default color my printer uses or something?

Yeah, I know, dumb question and I'll probably just print it at the library but it's worth a shot.

So this isn't a total waste of a post, tell me: Is this completely crazy? I mean, a vegan ordering a gyro wrap. What in the hell?

How do dads get toddlers (2-3 year olds) to sleep without resorting to mommy's boobies?

The situation: my 2-year old son really only goes to sleep one of two ways: 1) mommy's boobie juice, or 2) moving around with some vibration (I used to be able to walk around the living room rocking him to sleep, but if I tried to put him down he'd wake up, these days I have to drive him around the block a few times but can then park the car and wait a couple of hours surfing via iPhone or reading a good book). We're expecting in January, though, and the new kid will be getting boobie juice, which means our older kid won't get dibs on it) and there will definitely be times when I have to get him to go to sleep, preferrably without having to resort to driving him around to accomplish said maneuver. We don't do crying-to-sleep and we do co-sleep, so he's used to getting the boobie (and we're not forcing him to wean, yes, we're liberal crockpots).

So, any suggestions? We've got a separate mattress for him in our room (or his own but he's expressed no interest there), and he could totally transition to that, but he doesn't go to sleep any other way, and we need to start figuring this out sooner rather than later.


I'm so bored and want to find a website to become hooked on when I get bored. I was addicted to Neopets and in Middle and High School but can't get back into it.

What sites are you/ have you been addicted to ?
