I have officially reached the stage of teacher-dom where I need a tote bag to carry all my supplies to and from work in. I checked LL Bean, but they don't have anything tote-like and I'd kind of like to have my name on it to carry out the insane teacher-ness. Does anyone know of any good places to find something like this?

 What was the last thing you were incredibly excited about that was actually kind of lame/pathetic?

Sean fucking Nelson (HARVEY DANGER!) sent me a friend request on Myspace and I'm like "OMGOMGOMGOMGOMG" because Harvey Danger has been my fav band since I was 8 years old.  Yup, I got giddy over something on Myspace.  -lame-

Books~~~

I'm looking for some books to read once I'm finished with my current ones. So my question is: what would you recommend?

Mainly, I like: Fantasy-Adventure

I tend to be picky with what I choose, though. I like intelligent books (like Tolkien and T.H. White's "Once And Future King".) But I like the types of adventures found in Harry Potter and The Thief Lord and The Enchanted Forest Chronicles. If anything comes to mind please tell me the title/author and maybe a sentence or two on what it's about? And if you really feel like promoting, maybe say what you liked about it so much. But please, no spoilers about the books. =3 Thnxxx.

What was the last thing you had break?
The handle that controls the water in the shower. Grats to my school for cutting costs when buying fixtures, etc.

What is with the fleeting, confused look I keep catching on this one guy's face for the past week (He shares an apartment with a friend)? It isn't from anything I've said.
Do you focus more on facial expressions or on hand gestures in conversations? facial expressions
I'm going to hang out with a bunch of friends that graduated tomorrow. What will you be doing?

1. Can you whistle loudly? (Wolf Whistle or the finger-in-mouth whistle, specifically) If so, how did you learn?

hah i'm learning from google now :)

2. Have you ever made a makeshift repair or fix for a problem in your house (or car, anything really) that is really really shabby, but works? What was it?

we got hit with a big rainstorm tonight, and the roof started leaking in the attic on the insulation. i cut up some drum liner trashbags, taped them to a window frame, and tossed them on the insulation. ghettoooo, but it works.

3. How much water do you drink in a day?

at least three liters

4. What are some of your favorite movies from childhood?

Imagine....

You're a black man. You live in Hong Kong. You're coming home one night after hockey and a few beers after hockey practice. You are crossing the street when a taxi hits you. Not enough to hurt you, but enough to knock you over and make you irate.

You get up, shake your fist at the cabbie and ask him if he saw you there and what is his problem.

Next thing you know, you are up on assault charges because the driver says you hit him and somehow, he has a fat lip and a small cut. The driver is claiming that you merely slipped on the ground and randomly got up and punched the crap out of the first taxi driver you saw, for no apparent reason. The HK cops and this taxi driver are corrupt enough to take you and your family for all it is worth. NO ONE saw the accident and if they did, it would actually not work in your favour that HE hit YOU bc then you would have cause to assault him.

You are also married with a 5 year old. You wife works here as well and your son goes to school here.

Would you:

A) Stay and fight this with everything you had, at any cost, to prove your innocence?
B) Take a plea bargain, but this means you will have a criminal record for years to come and you truly did not do anything.
C) Flee HK at the first chance you have and never ever ever return?
D) Other suggestions?

 My little sister's graduating tomorrow and it's just occurred to me...
Is gift giving between siblings customary in such a situation? I can't seem to recall if I got anything from my siblings when I graduated.
If it is, then what should I get her?

What the heck

I was at the grocery store last week. The guy behind me bought:

20 10-lb bags of white flour
3 full cases of refrigerated pop-roll biscuits
16 1-gal containers of chlorine bleach

1. TQC, what's this dude planning?

2. If you had 200 lbs of flour, 60 rolls of pop-open biscuits and 16 gallons of bleach what cool stuff could you do with it?

3. When you're at the grocery store do you notice what others are buying?

Serious and non-serious answers OK.

missing document?!?! please help

Hi. My friend finished her term paper, which she periodically saved onto her computer, and then clicked out the window. She attempted to e-mail the document to herself, but her document seemed to disappear -- she couldn't find it anywhere on her computer. How did this happen (she saved the document many times) and is there a way to retrieve the document? Any ideas would be appreciated. Thanks!

Adventures in hiring babysitting

In this scenario, you have a little 5-year old daughter. One night, you have plans with your SO and you can't find a babysitter. Your boss overhears your plight, and says, "My daughter could babysit. She could really use the money. She's good with kids. She's 22". Your boss is smiling, waiting for an answer. What is your answer?

"S-sure. When can she come over?" Maybe this will help me get promoted

Her purse is in the shape of a Jack Daniels' bottle. You let her in, and she gushes over your daughter. "What a cutie she is. She's going to get laid a lot when she's older. Up to her cooter in boys and girls, I bet. Won't you, you little tart?" she says in a cooing, sincere voice. You're going to be gone for 4 hours. Do you entrust your daughter to this chick?

Your daughter seems happy with the ink job, but said it hurt a lot. What do you do?

It seems I'm difficult to shop for. Nobody knows what I like or has any idea what would make a nice gift for me. This is not something I've decided, it's something I'm being told by more and more people lately - my mom, my best friend, my husband, another close friend. I don't understand it.

I'll bet you can do better than they can! What would you give me on some gift-giving occasion?

I work as a live in nanny, and in february i got into a small accident caused by the weather ( we had an ice storm, i was driving down the hill on my street and slid into the curb, but it still cost $1800 dollars to fix) i paid for half of the damages, and they decided to give the car to me and i would pay my own insurance, we were litterally scheduled to put the car into my name this very weekend (after i paid the $400 to get the repairs needed to pass the saftey inspection, which i did 3 weeks ago), but yesterday I got into a rear end collision involving 2 other cars (the car was still in their name and on their insurance), the mom (my boss) says they are taking the car away and i will be home bound. I dont see this as very fair especially since i put $400 into it for it to be ready to register into my name. Its not fair for me to be stuck in a house 24/7, I have friends, a boyfriend, and will be resuming college in the fall which will not be possible without a car. Im thinking of looking for a new nanny job. What do you think?

My sad kitty :(

My 10 months old cat has never been able to stay with a cat collar for more than two days. She always manages to take it off! So yesterday I bought her a tiny dog collar, because it doesn't have the stretchy thing that most cat collars have.

She still hasn't been able to take it off! And I'm sure she isn't going to. But she's acting all weird...she isn't walking, or seems to have an interest for anything. She just lies there. I have tried to play with her all morning but she doesn't want to :(

Has this happened to any of your cats? And did they get used to it? What worries me is that she's almost a year old, and it would have been easier to get used to it if I had done it when she was younger.

On my favorite radio talk show, they're talking about Guantamo Bay, and how they've put panties over the heads of a few suspected terrorists because they find it offensive. It was debated whether or not they were clean or dirty panties, and then it opened into a forum of whose panties, if they were placed over your head, would you consider torture?

TQC, whose panties would you least want over your head?

My answer: Amy Winehouse. If her face is that pitted and unkempt, I can only imagine what her vag would be like. I might contract something, and besides, she might have a big beehive bush. I could choke on a pubic hairball

Google-fu is failing me.

So I went to the doctor about my knee. He said it was something super long which abbreviated to ARPFS. Apparently its the main reason women are medically discharged from the military or something of the sort.
I know/think thats what he said because I wrote it down. However, when I googled it only PFS comes up, aka runners knee. I KNOW what he said started with an A though.

Any idea what I might have got wrong in translation?

Names!

What are some modern variations on Psyche that you can think of? They don't have to sound identical, but names that at least resemble Psyche, either in pronounciation or appearance would be good.

For that matter, what are some variations on Eros that you can think of? My only idea is Eric, and naming a love god Eric just...doesn't quite sit well with me.

Creativity would be a plus. :)

 So I was home schooled (well...online schooled) for my last year of high school, and I just graduated this past February. I'm supposed to send my school laptop, printer/scanner, and any other books I may have back to the school ASAP and so the school sent me labels to put on the boxes I use to send them back so that I don't have to pay anything. The problem is that I don't have any boxes big enough for this stuff except for a giant HP computer box in my basement that would probably fit everything into it. Should I use only one label on it and then drop it off at the nearest FedEx or would this box just be too ginormous?

i sent my resume to a christian high school on whim to get a full-time English teaching position for next year. they sent an application back asking for references from a clergyman or church elder as well as a variety of other information. i did not reply because i do not belong to a church, i never have, and i do not believe in god.

i just got a voicemail saying they were extremely interested in my resume and would like to schedule an interview with the vice principal.

do i go with the incomplete application, but lie and say that i am in fact a ~spiritual person? do i have a friend pretend to be a pastor? how hellworthy are these sins i am contemplating?

lies?

I need help lying...

Earlier this month, I went to the community pool with my sister and realized I lost my bracelet there. We retraced our footsteps and everything. I went back to search the next day again...even went to the lost and found. Didn't find it. Just this past week, I visited a friend in LA...and he got me the same exact bracelet for me. 

I already lied to my mom and sister that I was going to LA with my best friend, her aunt and boyfriend just to visit Southern Cal. But really, I went there myself to hang out with a male friend. My mom is really old-fashioned and is against me hanging out with guys. Unless she knows of them. She will flip out if she ever found out that I flew to CA to hang out with a guy. And I told her that the people I went with already did nice things for me during my trip...so if I said they got me a new bracelet, that will just make her suspicious.

My sister is another story. She's just really nosy...and I just want to avoid all questions she asks as much as possible...and by lying, I think would be the best case. As sad as that sounds. 

*I can't say that it's fake because I'm allergic to most jewelry that aren't real. It's a name brand bracelet, too.*

What should I tell them where or how I found it? Or who got it for me?

What gross misunderstandings do your family have in regards to you?

For instance, I came home and commented on a CD my grandmother had recieved in the mail, entitled "PARALYZED VETERANS PRESENT: MUSIC FOR THE FOURTH OF JULY".

I came into the computer room, and upon opening a giant chain e-mail she sent me containing The Pledge Of Allegiance decorated with 8 million red white and blue sparkly .gifs, loud patriotic marching band music began to blast from the kitchen CD player -- she apparently misread my mild curiosity as a strong desire to listen to said music.

What would you name a rock and roll themed super hero? He's a male, if that makes any difference.

Also, I'm currently looking for a job in childcare (I'm majoring in early childhood education, though I don't have my degree yet). I've been sending out applications online, but my mother, frustrating busybody that she is, insists that if I'm not actually physically driving around to daycare centers and demanding applications to fill out in person, I'm not taking this job looking thing seriously. I feel weird about this because, number one, I don't know the locations of any local daycare centers, number two, I have no way to tell if those places are hiring, and number three, I feel like a place like that would be less likely to hire someone who walked in off the street than a place like a restaurant or store. Admittedly, I have no experience looking for "real, grown up" jobs, the kinds with salaries that require you to have a resume, so I could be wrong. Is she right, or am I right?

Also, do you think that the English language is degressing as a language because of this? Why or why not?

I don't think so, myself. But I'd like to know what other people think. : )

Breaking a Lease

Have you ever broken a lease on an apartment or house? What were the repercussions (loss of security deposit? additional charges?) Did it affect your credit rating at all?

Do you think it's rude to ask someone you don't know very well or at all if they have a SO?

I do, but it's probably just because I'm bitter.

Edit: Only answer if you are single and get asked this all the time, LOL.

 Should I get a MacBook Pro, MacBook Air, or a MacBook?

I get up to a $299 rebate towards either an 8GB Ipod Touch or an 8GB Ipod Nano.  Which should I get?

If you don't care, how's the weather where you are?

how can you tell if a head gasket is about to blow? my neighbor claims mine is and he wouldn't touch it with a 10 foot pole. I have a 1991 jeep cherokee laredo. I need to sell it to get a new laptop but I feel weird selling it if its about to die, and no way am I going to pay to replace the gasket.

ok, who wants to buy it for $1000?

Is there such a thing as a really, really quick-and-dirty, easy-to-comprehend, free guide to Microsoft Access? I desperately need to learn how to use this blasted thing in like the next hour...

music video

I saw this music video today but didn't catch the band.. all I remember is there was a guy with longish black hair singing, and in the video there's this almost stereotypical alt kid getting picked on the whole time (swirlies, jocks hitting him with a towel, etc.) It was on Fuse, and I didn't get to see the whole video so I was wondering if it sounds familiar and if anyone knows the name of it?

yep, seriously

1. If I wanted to wear a few little braids in my hair, should I hairspray those braids after I braid them or before I braid them? Yes, seriously.

2. How do you avoid making mountains out of molehills? (overreacting)

Fellow Iowans, WTF IS HAPPENING!? Storms and storms and flooding and more flooding. And roads closing all over. Mandatory evacuations!?

Where do you live? Is any of this flooding and such affecting you?

For non-Iowans, how's the weather in your state??

Ladies: Do you have your clit pierced? More specifically, do you have a VCH? Has it heightened sexual pleasure for you? If I were to get one, would it most likely reject if I were also to pick up bike riding afterward? (Not directly afterward, but I don't drive, and buses are annoying to get around, so bike riding seems to be the logical thing for me to do).

In general: There was a super funny pic post a few days ago in TQC and I can't find it! There were a bunch of macros and one of them was a mail person fighting a dog, the dog somehow was wearing the person's shoes and one of the captions was "THEY DON'T EVEN FIT". Another macro was one of a political ad for Obama and one of it's captions read "His font got serifs and shit goddam". Can anyone link me to this post, or leave these macros for me in a comment?

Please and thank you.

Okay, so I figured if anyone could help me find this thing, TQC could. One girl in my dorm this year (who is currently at a camp with no internet access until August, so facebook is out of the question) had this giant beanbag chair in her room. I mean huge, at least four or five feet wide (it took up pretty much the entire underside of her lofted twin bed), and filled with not necessarily beans, but something soft, possibly cotton. It was comfortable as fuck, and referred to affectionately as "the blob". Does anyone know where I can obtain such a jewel? I covet it. :(

This was a triumph

I just paid 20 bucks to download (and hopefully play) Portal on my computer, which may or may not run it well (my laptop's fairly sucky). Was it worth it?

Note: I've played through Portal on a friends 360. I'm doing this so I can get custom maps and play Portal without having to go over to my friend's (which is hard now since he's over 100 miles away)

I am exhausting my options for a job. I am an undesirable employee because I am 17, a, and inexperienced, b.
TQC can you recommend places for me to call tomorrow? General names like dog kennels or bookstores. Someone out there has to be creative enough to think past what I have; so sick unimaginative.

I'm going to see a production of The Rocky Horror Picture Show this weekend.

Which is your favourite song from The Rocky Horror Picture Show?

Which character do you relate to most?

Corset and high heels - y/y?

 So I'm doing a modern retelling of the Cupid and Psyche myth. For the purposes of my tale, I'm making Psyche into an up and coming model. Thing is, I don't know a thing about modeling. So, TQC, what should I know? Where should I go for personal experiences, modeling stories, etc.? (Besides Google.) Basically, a "Day in the Life" of a supermodel, if it could be procured, would be amazing. 

TIA. :)

I was pissed at the scallion/green onion thing. I was upset at the spinach and the tomatoes. Now lemons? OH HELL NO! I love lemonade WAY too much. Nobody's going to scare me. Screw bacteria!

TQC, Why don't they scare people around with chocolate? Do you think it's because chocolate is too profitable/delicious? Did you know that chocolate/cacao has a significant amount of cockroaches and rat droppings in it? That people who are allergic to chocolate could possibly be reacting to the cockroaches ground up in there?

There was a construction work on the road I drove today, and there was this laser thing. A levelling machine or something, I think. I looked straight at it. Do you think my eyes are damaged?
I'm rather afraid of lasers. I almost fainted at the wheel because of it.

1. So, my mom's credit card number was stolen, but thankfully the fraud dept. at Discover froze the card and called within the hour of the charges all piling up. A few charges (though they may not have all been actually charged because several of the vendors called us first to confirm that it was a fraudulent large purchase) included:

- a large purchase from a diamond dealer
- a big screen television from Ebay
- a huge order of gifts from some national florist chain
- 6 bottles of dom perignon from an online liquor store
- a bunch of stuff from a local thrift store (the only strangely small charge, and it was in our city)

I'm inclined to think that with "professional" CC# thieves they're vastly more interested in slowly draining cash out of your account with random "fees" from seemingly innocuous services rather than having multiple bottles of champagne, that this was instead some idiot working at a store we went to that thought it would be a brilliant idea to steal a customer's number try and buy several items that would all trigger a fraud alert all at once.

For this reason I'm thinking it's less likely that she used a non-secure site and more likely that it was an idiot cashier at the grocery store or something. What do you think?

2. Have you ever been a victim of CC fraud or identity theft yourself? How did it turn out?

TQC, I need help figuring out what to buy my dad for Father's Day.
He's an awesome dad... just horribly difficult to shop for.
He is a 53 year old high school principal with a passion for good cigars.  I am a 21 year old newlywed with a limited budget ($15-$20 at the moment).
Does anybody have any suggestions?
And no gift cards - every gift card he's ever received is either still sitting in his wallet, or has been given to somebody else.  He simply won't use them.

And for those who don't care...

Are you watching last comic standing right now?  Is there anybody who you are rooting for?

How are blow-up dolls sexy? My desktop picture is this guy putting his penis inside one but it just looks like a huge balloon. Are balloons arousing?

Should I be a Japanese schoolgirl named Yuki or a geisha possibly also named Yuki or a generic exotic Asian person with hair chopsticks and stuff? I bought my stripper shoes but I don't know what else to wear.

Will you write me a small poem?
