I have really sensitive skin and made the mistake of slathering myself in Aveeno lotion earlier this week, which has a history of doing VERY BAD THINGS to my skin. Sure enough, I am now very rashy and gross. HOW DO I MAKE THIS GO AWAY SOONER? Or if that's impossible, how do I stop itching?

Also, my boyfriend works till 3 AM tonight. It's 12:30 now. Should I stay up till he gets home or go to bed soon? I'm not too tired, but kinda.
If you think I should stay up, what should I do between now and then?

Say there's this girl you like and you've asked her out and she gets back to you with a 'oh we'll talk later." So then you do talk later and she doesn't say yes but she doesn't say no- just 'give me some time to think it over.' Is this a good sign?

What's your favorite chick flick? (The funny kind, not the stupid, over-sentimentalized "PS I Love You" kind.)

I just watched Mean Girls for the 1497537th time and I'm looking for something similar to watch.

Children's Books

What subject do you wish could have been covered by a Children's book? All potentially inappropriate answers are very welcome. This could either be because it would be funny, or to avoid an awkward conversation with your child, or, because it's a difficult subject to explain to a child in their terms.

1) So I planned a trip to Busch Gardens (amusement park) about a month ago and I am really excited because I haven't been in a long time. There is a 30% chance of rain the two days I'll be in Williamsburg.

Should I risk it and go or should I reschedule?

2) What's your favorite amusement park?

3) What's your favorite ride there?

Have you ever read or heard anything about Vector Marketing?

My friend just got a job with them and I've read nothing but evil about that company. Should I slap her upside the head, or is it really not that bad?

ETA: Oh man thank you guys. I am glad I'm not effing insane. I told her it was a bad idea and she told me it was just summer work and that she'd "done her research." Normally she's really level-headed so I didn't press the issue, but now I'm definitely worried she's going to get herself scammed. It makes me wonder how much research she did within the company rather than outside sources. :/

New question!

How long until my friend asks me for the $150 it takes to buy her demo set? :D

The cake is a lie

What kind of cake should I make TQC?

I'm making my own birthday cake for some sort of gathering tomorrow. I can't figure out what ice cream/cake combo. I was thinking about one of the following

White cake with lemon frozen custard middle layer.
White cake with vanilla bean ice cream layer and fudge frosting
Opinions? Suggestions?

ETA: Those aren't the only two options. Suggest something if you want.
ETA too: I forgot to mention I hate straight up chocolate cake D:

So do you ever have nights when you want to sleep but you basically can't shut off your brain? What's going through your head on nights like that? For me, it's either baseball or the book I'm reading... and right now I'm reading a book on baseball, so I'm really screwed. Also, I get the TV show LOST stuck in my head a lot.

Is this a new type of scam?

So, although I have a little bit of work through a temp agency, I'm still responding to ads and sending my resume around. I got an email from one place, informing me that they tried to reach me at both my numbers and were unable to do so, so I need to call them. Yet I have caller ID and voicemail on both numbers. I have not missed any calls on either number. So, I think they're lying.

Are they lying?

Vicious dog question

I have a chihuahua one year, one month old. He looks almost identical to this one, minus the cheeseburgers.

He's always been protective of our family, but lately he's started growling at us and getting territorial. He hasn't bit any of us yet, but it's still scary to have a dog growling at you and bearing teeth at 2am. We got him neutered last week to try to curb the problem, but it hasn't done much.

Any ideas?

SO TQC, let's say I'm friends. With some people. Real people. It's a stretch, I know, but stay with me here.

So let's say I hang out with them a lot and they occasionally call me a name and make fun of an aspect of my personality, and it was funny when they started doing it. Now, six thousand times later, it's not fucking funny any more, and their tone seems to have changed towards being more mean and less joking. I've asked them to stop, and they won't stop. Do I have the right to pop them one in the shoulder until they do stop?


On a more serious, also friend-related topic, these same friends have a tendency to never back me up about anything ever, and one of them says it's because she's 'afraid of conflict'. I had a clash with another (now ex) friend a while ago, and the problem has persisted over the last two years. Nobody's ever backed me up or stuck up for me about it, even though they tell me when I ask them that I'm OMG IN THE RIGHT SHE'S BEING AWFUL, but then turn around and are all sunshine and butterflies to her and act like nothing happened and they can't understand why I'm unhappy being around her.

Now, she's pulled the same shit on the friend who claims to be afraid of conflict, and friend wants me to help her confront her. I told her no, she has to do this on her own because obviously nothing I've ever said to the ex-friend has made any impact, and anyways I'm not involved. She whines to me that she's afraid of conflict, 'omg but you're better at confronting people than I am', but eventually agrees to confront her about all that has happened...

Then goes and brings ex-friend to a gathering that I'm at the very next day, acting like she's not mad at her at all, and didn't confront her about shit. She proceeds to be playful and friendly with her, and can't understand why I'm irritated.

Is everyone this ridiculous, or is it just my friends?

I'm doing a huge group project and this is part of my portion:
For AIDS – you need to have a fact sheet about AIDS. You will also have an additional entry on current research and perspectives on AIDS. You must find at least 3 research articles and write a 3-4 page summary discussing current issues on AIDS – statistics, treatment and prevention (including current vaccine under development) and world wide health perspectives.

Is that three different parts? A fact sheet, entry on current research, and then 3 articles with a 3-4 page summary? Or just a fact sheet and the 3-4 page summary?

I feel silly because I've been under the impression that it was two parts and now I'm worried it's three. :/

Collections.

Lame?

If you were a 20-year-old college student home on summer vacation, and your older sister invited you to go to Best Buy to shop for appliances (refrigerator, washer, and dryer) for her new house and then go out to lunch, would you think it’s lame, or would you possibly enjoy it a little bit?

I ask because I’m thinking of asking my little sister to come appliance shopping with me, but she’s the kind of person who always tries to tell people what they want to hear, so even if she thinks it’s the lamest thing EVAR, she will probably agree to do it and pretend to have fun. But if she does, in fact, think it’s really lame, I don’t want to pressure her into going.

Watching TV

Do your pets (namely dogs) enjoy watching TV? Specifically shows with animals? What do they do? Do they have a favorite movie or show?

My male Chihuahua LOVES watching TV. Right now we're watching Meerkat Manor and he's growling and barking, just having a grand ol' time with it. The animals in the show don't even have to be making animal noises for him to acknowledge them, he sees the image on the screen and recognizes that they're animals. He'll often stand on his back legs with his feet on the TV barking at the animal. His favorite movie is Good Boy, he could watch it all day. My female Chihuahua isn't as into TV as he is as she'll only bark at dogs but she still enjoys it.

Do you / How do you visualize time?

For example, for me: When I think of the week ahead I see a white line in my head. The days that I have something to do are black squares on that line. Then when I think of a specific day during the week, it is another white line with black squares distributed during the parts of the day I am working or supposed to be meeting up with friends. There aren't any numbers, so it's not like I'm looking at a datebook in my head, but some how I know that a black square at this point in the line means 3 pm or what have you.

inspired by this post:

It seems like people who like one of my 3 favorite shows also like the other two, and if they hate one they hate all three. I would like to see if I am right about this.
So, can you tell me, of these three shows:

Lost
Battlestar Galactica
Arrested Development

(which in my opinion are 3 very different shows)

Do you love all three?

Hate all three?

Or are there one or two you like, and one or two you hate?



And in a related question, if you hate Lost, what the hell is wrong with you?
Is it because you think the show is all about Jack and Kate?
Because I can promise you that most of the people who love the show hate the two of them as much as you do.

You are a rock star on tour promoting your most recent album, "From Heroin to Heroine: The Very Best of A Generic Band". You have been in the media spotlight with a lot of your major record label problems that are partially, but not limited to: A rumored sex-tape of you snorting cocaine off of your producer's breasts, and accidentally killing a puppy with your guitar during an outdoor concert two years ago. You didn't mean to, it's just that the puppy doesn't really understand the meaning of...whatever it was you were drunkenly shouting to it while in the middle of the solo.

However, this is a new concert, which as gone off without a hitch. Save, of course, for the fact that it's being televised live, on HBO, and you totally didn't realize that until after you were already there. Apparently your producer wanted some revenge, or coke money, and decided this was the best course of action.

You're at the end of the concert now. Everyone is expecting you to play you hit single, "Birds of a Feather Fuck The Government." and possibly engage in drunken, on-stage sex. But you're relatively sober, and feel the need to have a little fun with the audience. Do you:

1- Double click the power chord and show those people how to ROCK?
2- Announce that you're breaking up the band, and kill them all with Dark Charizard?
3- Play the Sesame Street theme song?
4- Play "Free Bird"?
5- Use this opportunity to engage in political activism and express your desire to free Tibet?
6- Just play your song?
7- Kill yourself onstage to be immortalized?

Hotel's Wi-Fi

When you're connected to a hotel's wi-fi (had to log in, etc), how much of your internet activity can they see? Could you for example get caught pirating software/music?

If so, would an application like PeerGuardian block them from seeing your internet history or your use of programs like bittorrent?

(I ask because my school has an agreement with the RIAA to hand over the IP addresses of offenders, and many people have been fined that way.)

job

Have you ever quit a job that made you miserable just for that reason?
My job pays minimum wage and I can only get about 15-20 hours a week because there are so many people on the staff. My boss likes everything to be done in an extremely specific way, even if there is a better or faster way, you have to do it her way. My co-workers are like high school freshman because all they do is talk about each other when one person leaves the room. There are two co-workers who have been caught literally stalking me in an attempt to get me fired I guess just because they don't like me. These same two people write about me constantly in their livejournals. They all scrutinize the way I do EVERYTHING as if it were my first day or something, even though I've been told by my boss that I'm a really good worker and I do well there. I even got training in an area that usually takes years of working at this place before the boss ever considers training you (I've only worked there for 5 months), so I'm assuming this fueled the flame of jealousy in the eyes of my two stalkers. 
So basically, nobody treats me with any respect and I hate going to work. I've talked to my boss about the constant gossiping and also the stalkers and she's had a talk with a few people about being extremely assy to me (I didn't ask her to do this..) and so now the problem is just worse because they have another reason to hate me. 
Would you:
a) quit and then send a copy of all of the nasty livejournal entries one of the stalkers wrote about your boss to your now ex-boss
b) slam a copy of all the slanderous entires down on your bosses desk first thing on monday and say "it's her or me" ?
c) quit and call all of the different places I recently applied to to ask about the status of my application? 
d) stay and be miserable

I don't have cable in my bedroom, so I watch a lot of PBS through antenna.  About 80% of all PBS shows that come through my antenna are described for the blind by a condescending-sounding woman.  None of the exact same shows that come in through cable have these descriptions.  It drives me absolutely insane.

Does your PBS provider have these descriptions?  Do you know if it's different for antenna vs cable customers in your area?

Does PBS just do this to annoy the crap out of me, or is there really a big base of blind people who want PBS shows described, and if so, why do they favor antenna over cable?

Is there some kind of remote button that will let me get these descriptions off the shows?

my brother is trying to remember a specific horror movie. he says that it's about two or three very clean cut guys who are killers. they capture a family and act very calm. my brother says he remembers a scene where the family is laying around bleeding and screaming and the killers say something like: "we'll give you thirty seconds to run for your lives and then we'll chase you with axes."

does anyone know what movie he's talking about?

I watched a few minutes of this show on TLC about the Running of the Brides, if you don't know what that is (I didn't before watching) it's this huge event in the basement of Filene's Department store in Boston MA. The women all line up super early like 1-2am and wait for the store to open at like 6am. Then they stampede down the stairs/escalators and through the basement.

How funny would it be if one of the people tripped on the stairs and started a huge chain reaction with everybody behind them?

 I'm really unhappy. Can you cheer me up with something funny?
If you don't have something funny can you tell me something that will make me more depressed?
If you don't have anything that will make me more depressed then would you spam me with the best of your fail macros for making such a fail post?

bah,

i saw these awesome necklaces in miami and havent seen any at home.
they're like wishing necklaces. Theyre string necklaces with a little charm on it and when the string breaks, your wish is supposed to come true.

My SO's best friend and business partner, Tanner, is a close friend of mine as well... He came to me wanting to buy something off Ebay. The item was $300 plus $250 shipping from the US to Canada. He asked me to buy it because he didn't know anyone else with a credit card and he's too computer-dumb to work Ebay.

So he gives me the $550 in cash, and I put the bid on my credit card, and immediately put his cash on my credit card. Well, the guy who sold it to me is a complete cock. Long story short, he sent it to the wrong address, it was sent back, he sent it again to a sketchy warehouse THREE HOURS away from my home, wait TWO HOURS, drive back home THREE HOURS...on my birthday... And my name is wrong on the box, so Customs would not allow me to take it...it was returned to the seller and he never bothered to send it back again.

I filed a Paypal claim and yada yada yada they returned $315 but not the rest because he didn't have anymore money in his account.

Now Tanner is wanting the full $550 back. I have already gave him the $315. I don't think I should give him it because then I would be out that money and that is a lot for me right now.

Tanner is not being an ass about it, but he does mention it a lot to my SO at work, and brings it up when I see him, and he's clearly upset about it.

WWYD?



EDIT:
I also want to mention we paid a $90 fee at Customs out of our pocket as well that we never asked Tanner for.

should I buy david sedrais' new book?[I can't spell his name, though] or should I be good and save for summer school?

what's the most embarrassing thing you've done with your parents?

Once I did go to david sedrais doing a reading type thing and that was a bit embarrassing, but when I went to a university play thing because my friend was doing a play, and one of the other plays was the fake rape part of choke, I was embarrassed.

how many locations does a business need to have for it to be considered a chain?

I assume there is no legal definition but if you happen to KNOW what makes a business legally considered a chain feel free to share, otherwise just give personal opinions.

I am a cashier. The other night at work, a young man roughly my age came to my register and purchased one snow pea. The total was 5c.

The reason he gave me for the unusual order was "That's my weekly budget. I was thinking of cooking up a stir-fry."

TQC, why are you purchasing one snow pea?

I'm pissed because someone at my job tried to make themselves look good by attempting to get me in trouble. She has some sort of superiority complex I'm sure.

When you write an S, is the top half bigger or is the bottom?

When you write an 8, is it one unbroken line or two little circles... or something else?

Which finger do you use to scroll the scrolly wheel on a mouse?

I was catsitting for a friend while his house was fumigated today, and this cat did not have a very fun day. She hid from my cats - her mother and sister, as it happens - in a cardboard box the entire time. When it came time to leave, she figuratively fucking shredded my hand. Will you offer me some sympathy?

Hi, I'm new.

My boyfriend and I are flying from CA to WA in a few weeks to go to his brother's high school graduation. I've met his family before, but obviously don't know them too well since they live far away. Do I need to get his brother a graduation gift? If so...

What can I get him that's:
a. not money
b. inexpensive
c. easy to take on a plane

Are there any words you always type wrong?
I can't type the word "lyrics" right the first time without looking. I have no idea why.

If you could get a 5-minute heads up that you were going to die (like, Grim would appear to you and say "hey, you're coming with me in five, k?" before you died), would you want it? Feel free to add what you would do with such an advisory.

I want to hear everything you have to say about interviews, because I'm freaking out about mine.

I just had a very strange interview a few days ago. It lasted about five minutes, and I'm really not sure whether it was good or bad. The woman just asked me to tell her about myself, and said that she didn't ask many questions. She seemed pretty antisocial...or possibly just rude. When I asked what she was looking for, she said she had a "sense for who has what it takes"...

What kind of details do they typically give you in an interview for a job you didn't get? Do they still tell you what the training will be and when they'll be starting? The woman interviewed me on Thursday and said they'd be starting on the 16th and said that she thought that would be about 2 weeks and I'd have enough time to give notice. Do they still say that to people who they've already decided not to hire?

What's the strangest interview you've ever been on?

I threw out the box that has the instruction for instant mashed potato - i put the flakes in tupperware to keep it fresh and lost my instructions on how to make instant mashed potatos.

Does anyone have the box with the instructions on it? What is it please for 6 servering?

I know it has milk, water, butter, flakes, dash of salt but I don't know the measurements.

Thank you.

Huge group project due on Thursday. I'm now compiling my member's work into the final product in our binder (Even though they STILL aren't done with all their portions!). My two member's work is subpar. I already have done more work than both of them, paid for everything and am doing all the final touch ups.

I'm really pissed off that they haven't finished their work, and what they have done is not very good. They've had nine weeks to do this so far! It's like 25% of our whole grade. :(

Should I try and see if my professor will grade my portion individually? I seriously don't want to go through pointing out to them what they need to fix and I don't want to fix it all myself (The whole thing is easily 30-40 pages of work!). What would you do?

1. How do you get yourself under control when you begin to laugh in a very inappropriate situation?

I watched the comedy central roast of Flava Flav last night, and Jimmy Kimmel talked about how Flava was responsible for more homeless black children than hurricane katrina....and this morning in church the pastor was preaching on Noah and the great flood and how "so many people and children were left homeless by Hurricane Katrina--our own great flood." I was full on laughing, shoulders shaking and all, and there was no way for me to make a quick exit. I kept it quiet but it took a good 5 minutes to get solemn again.

2. Have you ever laughed so hard you peed? Was it a little leak, or a full on, Fergie-like pants wetting?
I'm sure I've leaked, but I can't remember a pants-wetting laugh.

3. What kind of laugher are you? Loud and projected, quiet chuckle, snicker (for a few examples, feel free to add more!)?
I'm not sure, I think quiet chuckle until I hear something really funny, then it's loud.

4. Do you cry when you laugh?
Oh yeah, bad. It doesn't even have to be that funny. 5 seconds of my loud laugh and boom looks like someone just told me my dog died :(

Silly request!!!

Dear TQC,
My sister recently had triplets and asked me to take a few pictures in the hopes that one of them might be decent enough to use for announcements. As a joke, I sent one to her with a guitar poorly photoshopped into my nephew's arms. Go figure, she and her husband think it's hilarious.

I know that there are a few members here who are 1337 with the edits, and I am not. Would some of you be willing to help me out and provide a better guitar-playing-baby photo?

Do you use a flat iron?
Is it a cheap one or a nice one?
What product do you use on your hair beforehand?
My hair is already straight, why did my hairstylist insist I use one? What the hell magic is it working that I'm not seeing?

So I had some scotch for the first time last night and I'm in love. It's quickly becoming my favourite drink, but I honestly know nothing about it and the bottle I have is almost gone.

TQC, what kind of scotch do you recommend?

1. I took Spanish in 7th-10th grade, up until AP Spanish, but I dropped because my teacher had personal issues with me, gave me a C, and had no tests/grades to show me, my parents, or administration to prove I deserved a C. But that doesn't matter. Now, I need to take a foreign language for my degree, and I want to try to test out of Spanish. It's free, and I have the rest of the year to study, but I want to take the test by September. What do you think is the best way to brush up on my Spanish? It's been 4 years since I've taken any, although I do speak Spanish sometimes, very minimal, though.

2. What are your duties at your job? Are you over or under qualified? Do you hate it/love it? Tell me more about your job to give me incentive to find a job in Tallahassee for fall.

3. What's your favorite kind of cheese?

So in my new house, my bathroom has black and white tiles on the floor. I had no idea how to dress them up and make the bathroom look nice. When my friend saw them, she absolutely went nuts, demanding I do a retro theme. I didn't really want to at first, as I'm not into retro crap normally.

I've been thinking about it, though, and have started to like the idea. I'm thinking of getting bright red towels, and throwing a picture over the toilet (I'm thinking an oldschool red car or a 50s diner). Any idea where I can get some nice retro lighting? What exactly IS retro lighting? I'm trying for a 1950s theme.
