i'm making a playlist of sexxxxy jamz.
what are the songs that get you in the mood? i'm not looking for "closer" by NIN, "gimme more" or anything that is "song lyric song lyric sex sex do me blah blah song lyric". so, do you have any songs that aren't really meant to be sexy, but you think are?

a/c and time?

I live in a 2/2.5 two story condo...all by myself. In sticky, hot, summery Florida. I'm at home about 12-14 hrs a day (I know, I haven't gotten hired yet ;_;). Which is more cost effective: to turn down the A/C (I have to turn it to 72 for it to get cool, though), or to run the fan in my 2nd-floor room on high (it's too hot on lower settings) for 12-14 hrs straight?

I've done the latter, but my elec bill hasn't gone down yet (then again, my roommate kept popping in unexpectedly last month...but she couldn't raise the bill THAT much....could she?).

Did my excessive use of parentheses bother you?



Next: how do you visualise time? The year?

the answers to the question about buying a car at a police auction made me wonder,

I've heard that the back doors and possibly windows, are disabled so that somebody in the back wouldn't be able to get out on their own. assumably this is fixed before the cars are sold. BUT how hysterical would it be to have your friends get in there not knowing the history and then realize they couldn't get out?

So, for the past few days I've been sleeping a few hours at a time, instead of sleeping through the night. I set my alarm for an hour before I have to go somewhere, sleep until I wake up, and do stuff until I get drowsy again. How unhealthy is this? Will this completely screw my health up again? Will I die?

How can I keep on my meds? I have this horrible thing of going off of them, and it's really, really bad not that I take anti-depressants. Do you have trouble staying on your meds? What helps you to not go off of them? I'm fine about it until my schedule gets disrupted, then I end up off of them for around a week. Would taking them at the same time every day (like 9am/9pm) work better instead of just the when-I-wake-up/when-I-go-to-bed method?

Have you heard of Bipolar II? Do you think it is valid, or just one of those things where somebody is just looking for something to be wrong?
I think it could be valid, but most people who have it would not end up getting treatment for it. I have my doubts, though.

What is your official stance on romantic relationships right now?
It can never end well. Ever.

Fleas

I have a kitten who is roughly 9 months old and a rabbit who is a little over a year old.

My roommate has a dog and due to her not keeping the dog up to date on flea prevention my poor cat is starting to scratch away patches of skin. The rabbit has a few but nothing horrible yet.

I've used spot on for kittens on her but it isn't seeming to help, does anyone know of any cheap things that will work, I'm in a really bad place financially and can't afford much. But, I can't see her suffer anymore.

And any ideas on what could help the rabbit? I know most of the traditional things are poisonous for him.

my boyfriend & i are both on verizon wireless and i can see when my texts get delivered to him. the thing is, texts stopped being delivered an hour & half ago, so i decided to just call him but it just rings and rings and rings, eventually going to his voice mail message. i tried calling with my house phone and texting with their website but no avail. and i'm still receiving texts from other people.

(note: i'm trying so hard to talk to him because he was really sad and it's really not like him to just quit talking mid-conversation).

i'm confused because if it rings, it means his phone is on, right? then why aren't the texts being delivered? anyone have any explanations?

is verizon being dumb for any one else?

Hi, TQC!

I started a new job tonight as a bar tender in a little pub in the country side. It was all going so well until the door of the glasswasher smacked me on the head leaving a massive bump. :( Everyone laughed at me! My boss also told the story to every single regular that walked through the door as a way of introducing me! So now everyone calls me "Bump".

1. Do you have a bruise that has an embarassing story to go with it?

2. When was the last time you were really nervous?

3. Are you one of those people that can talk to anybody? How do you do it with out coming across as creepy?

4. Do you like ice in your drink?

 A co-worker [and close, family friend] just gave me $70 for food, as we were talking about how I wasn't as well off with two jobs and being on my own as we were talking about a couple months ago.

Besides the fact that I hate taking money from people, and this money really could go towards other things I need, I decided to suck it up and spend it on food.

What are some easy meals and food ideas that can stretch my $70 pretty far?

I really need your help with this one!

My boyfriend is turning 28 on Sunday.  He's got really expensive taste and I have very little money to spend at the moment, because my next paycheck isn't coming for another week.  I'm going to take him to a fancy restaurant when I get paid (it's probably going to be a $300 meal between the both of us)

We're having people over Saturday night to celebrate.  I want to give him something then, too.  He's always complaining that his tool box is too small, so I was going to get him a new one.  I thought it would be a good idea to stuff it with little gifty things, (blu rays, maybe a framed picture of us)

The question(s)
Do you think this is a corny idea?
If so, what should I do instead?

If not, what other things should I put in there?

EDIT: Yes, I know I'm a loon for spending so much money on the dinner.  BUT, this is the first birthday I'm spending with him and I want it to be special, and I just got a raise.  He's done a lot for me and I want to make his birthday nice because up until very recently I didn't have the funds to do anything of the sort.

Does anyone know the name of this movie?

I've come across it on TV a couple of times, and I have a feeling it may be a made-for-TV movie of the Hallmark kind, but for the life of me I can't recall its name, its cast members or the finer details of the story:

Family 'loses' a young kid at a railway station... kid, in fact, gets taken away by kidnappers...

A number of years later, the family ends up coincidentally living on the same street/in the same neighbourhood as the kid and the family who 'adopted'/kidnapped him...

I think he first crosses paths with his original family by showing up at the house and asking if they want their lawn mowed or something...

Still-grieving family has suspicions that this is the child they lost years ago...

A bit of snooping and detective work determines it is him. The kid has no idea that the only 'family' he's known gained him by stealing him...

Some complications arise. Things like Thanksgiving, where the original family insists it's a special occasion so he must spend it with them... but because it's a special occasion he wants to spend it with the fun 'relatives' who've always made it feel special to him...

I forget how it ends, but it's not too hard to see where it goes from there. It's driving me crazy trying to remember what it is!

My boy has trouble saving money. They're in lots of debt with everyone, including me. It's gotten to the point where if I sold all of his belongings second-hand, took his car, tv, etc... it wouldn't be enough to pay back just what he owes ME, let alone the other people he owes money to (total combined debt = 5 digits).

I want to help him become better with his money, and get him to start paying people back. The problem is, he gets paid cash in hand fortnightly on Fridays which makes it more tempting to spend and if deposited at an ATM won't show up until Monday, and the moment he gets that cash he spends it on pointless stuff. If he gets a bonus for selling a lot at work, his usual reaction is "wow, I can buy that new [blah] I wanted!" and spends the entire bonus on something for himself, without putting any away in savings, keeping some for the weeks he doesn't earn much or paying back any of his debts. I've given him LOTS of money management books and I know he's read them by asking him questions about the books but he doesn't follow a single damned thing said in them.


How do I get him to manage money better without, y'know, being a controlling bitch by taking complete control of his finances, taking his money off of him the moment he earns it and only giving him a certain allowance to spend himself so I can at least make sure he keeps enough aside to pay the rent and electricity and phone bills (which he often forgets about)?

A question for Muslim TQCers:

The other day in physics the topic of life on other planets came up, and a guy raised his hand to talk about a white planet with people living on it, or something like that. It sounded interesting so I said "Oh I love science fiction! What author wrote that?" he got offended and said that it wasn't fiction, it's something that Muslims believe. My professor is also a Muslim, and he was like wtf, who told you that? But he insisted it was true.

So, is this really something Muslims believe? If it is, what is the full story?

I interviewed for a job at the beginning of last month and was told "You'll hear from us week after next." Week after next, I don't hear from them. I call the following Monday (2 1/2 weeks after interview) and get the voicemail of someone else. I e-mail the woman I interviewed with and hear no response. That Wednesday, I call back and leave a voicemail for the new person saying "I interviewed with person x and haven't heard back, but this is the phone number I have. Can you please call me to tell me what's going on." Later on Wednesday, I get an e-mail from the woman I interviewed with saying "Sorry about the delay. I didn't realize my business cards had the wrong phone number until after your interview. I'll hopefully have an answer next week."

It's now been two weeks since I last heard from her. If I call again, am I sounding desperate? Or just very interested? The position is still listed on the company website, although I haven't seen it posted on the job boards I've seen it on.

Also, the last e-mail I have from her is in my Gmail account. On the side are links and in the "More about..." section of links, the top link is for "Rejection Letters". Does Google know something about the job that I don't?

Does anybody know if the black birds (sometimes they are gold, also) that you see on a lot of houses (at least here in the US) have a significance, or are they just decorative?
My husband and I are buying a house and it has one above the garage, and we've noticed that a lot of other houses have them on the front of the house as well.  I'll throw a picture in for reference.
My husband wants to know about stars on the front of houses, also.  Does this have a significance?
I tried googling the birds, but I had no luck...

ETA: I understand that it's an eagle.  What I meant was more along the lines of, does somebody having one on their house signify that they were in the armed services or something along those lines?  And does having a black one mean something different than having a gold one?  Stuff like that...

Your SO is making enough money where you don't have to work, but you will have to give up your family and friends, at least for the forseeable future. Do you go with your SO to Guatemala?

Long story short, but my husband and I just moved back into the house that I bought with my ex a year and a half ago. The ex trashed the place terribly. That much I can deal with, we just rented a dumpster and hauled out all of the stuff.

What I can't handle is that he let his cats piss all over the basement instead of changing their boxes. Now my entire house smells like cat urine.

What's the best way to get this smell to go away? I've bleached the floors twice, but it just keeps coming back!

My friend W was suppose to be the best man for X. X got dumped instead so the wedding is off. To make it worse, X got fired 2 days after he got dumped.

W doesn't feel like they're good friends, but agreed to be his best man because X doesn't have other friends. He says X can be annoying so he doesn't really enjoy hanging out with him, but I think he should at least once to show support at this shitty time.

He doesn't want to. Do you think he's being an asshole? I do. I don't think it's a lot to ask.

But would you do the same as W?

Regrets have been meandering through the corners of my mind today, and I've come up with a fairly sizable list. Some are significant, most are minimal. But they each have this incredible hold over me, and I can't seem to let any one of them go for the moment at least.
What is a regret that you have? It can be big or small, universal or personal, just something that you wish you could take back, have done, or reinvent.

i'm sorry for all of the work related questions, but i am very stressed out at work and need some advice, so please, TQC?

My co-worker is extremely lazy, and does "fake" work all day, like working on old files for an hour instead of taking new ones, looking things up on the internet instead of filing, and chatting with our manager. We're a small office, and are all friends, and occasionally hang out for happy hour type events. I wouldn't mind her pretending to work if it didn't effect me, but it does, and I'm swamped with new files. Would you say something? To who? and what would you say?

Thanks!!

I have absolutely nothing left to do at work today. I have a little over a half hour left, and my boss's office looks right out to my area, so I kinda gotta look busy. She can see what I'm doing on my compy...

What the hell should I do for 40 minutes?

Have any of you bought tickets through ticketmaster and then have the show postponed? Is it hard to get your money back through them?

Are you going to watch the hockey game tonight? Are the wings FINALLY going to wrap this series up? I hope so!!!

I have a bump on the tippy top of my gum. I don't know what caused it.
Does this mean I have the herpes?

If it just so happens that I have contracted the herpes, would you like me to service one of your enemies with a blowjob?

Also, have you ever used Dr. Pepper in cooking? How?

TQC, where is your "happiest place on earth?"  This can be current or of all time.


Currently, my "happiest place on earth" is my gym, because it is chockablock full of young hot, single men in medical school.  It's like a buffet that I've just yet to sample!  Mmmm!

Is mortadella just fancy bologna?

I got salmoned and I didn't like it. It felt like being really wasted and inside of a tiny elevator with a stranger on a ride up to, like, the 117th floor. How does getting salmoned make you feel?

Paula Deen just made a soup with a base of BACON cooked in BUTTER...to "cut the richness" of the soup, she added a mixture of MAYO and SOUR CREAM on top with some BACON BITS.

My question: How long before she drops dead? Does anyone actually make her food?

The thought of eating that soup is making me gag, but since I'm a bum and stupid, I'm still watching

Which food network person's recipes do you use?

I really like Tyler Florence and Giada DeLaurentis' recipes...they always come out really well.

How would you feel about your state making a transgender nondiscrimination bill that would make it illegal to deny a person access to public accommodations, including restrooms and locker rooms, based on gender identity or the perception of gender identity?

So, I'm staying at this nice beach-front hotel for a couple days on a Florida beach for vacation. This evening I walked along the beach, took a swim in the pool, and then took a shower. After that I decide to go down to visit the chocolate/fudge/ice cream shop they have in the lobby, and I walk out of the room with my hair still wrapped in a towel. I got halfway down my floor's hallway before some nice (and cute) guy in fatigues looked at me and said, "I couldn't figure out if you were my fiancee like that." I reach up and feel the towel and say something like "Oh my god!" He started laughing when he realized that I didn't know I still had it on. Needless to say I quick-stepped it back to my room after that.


Block of text later, TQC, what's the last embarrassing thing you've done?


(P.S., the fudge was fucking delicious)

When you were little, what did you want to be when you grew up?

What do you want to be now?





I was a little nerd, the careers I really wanted to be were: an archaeologist, a botanist, a meteorologist, a veterinarian, a pastry chef, a lab researcher, a microbiologist...and countless other things.

Now I'm teetering between: a math professor (I'm not sure what type of math), something with astrophysics (I guess?) or work with social behaviors of humans and try to implement them in computer technology. I would really like to work with human behaviors and math, but I really still am not sure what I want to do. Aaaaand, when I'm retired, I'd really like to open a bakery.

Anyone have any ideas on how I could get a product not made in the U.S?

My mom bought a Nivea sunscreen when we were in Italy, and she really likes it. I know it's not carried in the U.S., so any ideas on how I could manage to get some, aside from ebay?

on a completely random note.....

What's your favorite Trader Joe's product?

Are any of you a little chunky with tattoos? I have always been apprehensive of even thinking of getting one because I carry a little bit of extra weight.

Hi, how are you? I want conversation and obviously am not looking for the IRL person to person kind.

would you ever buy someone else's used/worn underwear?
this is advertised on craigslist like crazy and it got me wondering.
how much does a pair of used underpants go for these days, anyhow?

for some reason, i feel like this is illegal. i know it probably isn't, but it all just sounds so shady.

The roles of husband and wife in the God-ordained marriage are contrary to fallen humanity and the customs of today's society, but we believers can fully produce and enjoy a normal family life. Through a vision of God's ordination in marriage, and being filled with the Word of God and allowing the Spirit to bubble up from within his being, every believing husband can experience the grace of loving his wife in the very way that Christ loves the church, and every Christian wife can enter into the role of submitting to her husband as a living source of enjoyment and fulfillment rather than a doctrinal source of frustration and suffering. Together they can provide their children with the pleasure of a normal and healthy family life.

Agree?


Nearly every culture today follows the lead of the United States to focus on human rights. Human rights are important, but we need to also realize that, in order for an orderly society to exist, the authority of God and of every human authority (which are ordained by God Himself) must be recognized and submitted to.

Agree?


Have I been living next door to a scary cult?

And is that why someone set them on fire?

A friend asked me on holiday, and said she only wanted £100 for activities such as horse riding, archery etc.

I've since found out from another friend who is also going that there is another £100 wanted for accomodation, which she originally said her mum was paying for, as well as about £50 for food - total £250.

Whilst I understand that it's an expensive holiday and it's only fair we pay our way, I don't think it's on to suddenly announce an increase. I probably wouldn't have agreed to go if i'd known about the cost.

What do you think of this situation and how would you deal with it?

ETA: I can't back out, for a number of reasons.

So me and this dude have been good friends since our sophomore years of high school... so that's about 4.5 years. We've always been like brother and sister, nothing between us. I introduced him to my best friend, and they've been dating for about six months. I lovvve them together.

A couple of days ago she had a dream him and I were dating. She told us, and him and I thought that was the most hilarious thing ever. We joked about it for a while, then let it go.

Thing is, she hasn't. She like, doesn't trust us together anymore. Like, earlier I was telling her about when him, me, and our high school group did something together about 3 years ago. She throws a fit and flips out in a nail salon, snapping about "WHY ARE YOU ALWAYS HANGING OUT WITH MY BOYFRIEND?!" Cue awkward looks from other customers. Plus, him and I haven't hung out exclusively together in about seven months. Whenever I see him, it's with her.

TQC, how do I get her to calm the fuck down about this?

I have a Dunkin Donuts Box of Joe that I got for after my sister's Girl Scout ceremony this evening. Turns out that not as many family members showed up as we thought, we still have quite a bit in the container. If I wanted to save it to make iced coffee for tomorrow, what would be the best way to do so? Keep it at room temperature or keep it in the fridge?

Besides making iced coffee tomorrow, what can I do with this already made coffee? I don't want to drink too much of it, but no one else in my house will drink it.

I'm trying to think of this quote, but I can't remember it.

It goes something like

"This adjective adjective adjective life."  But I do not know what these adjectives are.  I have tried google, but it turns out that searching "this life" yields few results.

TCQ, What is this quote?

If you do not know the quote, what adjectives would you put in that space?  As many or as few as you please.

you don't have to shout

when you were a kid, did you deliberately put glue or paint or anything you used in class on your fingers,.... just so it would dry and you could peel it off later?

or was it just so you could be dirty?


PS I love how you guys are just as freaky as i was when i was a kid.
