Is it expensive to live on the east coast in like, South Carolina and such?
I'm from the good ol' mitten state and I know it's pretty expensive to live out east in like, Connecticut and Massachusettes but I don't know about the south-eastern coast.

Is it expensive to live on the east coast in like, South Carolina and such?
Mine: Star Trek: The Next Generation, Daria, Judging Amy, Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Angel, Scrubs, Sex and the City, and Heroes.
And what do you like that most people hate?
I hate beer and American Idol.
And I like the smell of cigarette smoke and I LOVEEEEEEE Lindsay Lohan.
ETA and the stipulation was that you had to SPEND it on something, not put it into savings/towards bills
He drinks an average of 5 cans of pop a day, and he says that's not bad at all because it's both diet and caffeine free.
He's already overweight and is pretty sedentary, not to mention that we don't exactly watch everything we eat. Every time he goes to the fridge for a drink he always gets 2 cans of pop, so it's 2 cans per meal. He thinks it's stupid that I will no longer get pop from the fridge for him. If he wants to drink it, he's going to have to get off his ass to get it himself.
I told him stuff like it lowers bone density, increases chance of diabetes, etc. but his counter-argument is that everything we eat is harmful in some way. I'm not asking him to completely stop drinking pop, I just don't like that he drinks almost 2L a day.
What are some good arguments for me to get him to drink less?
Vailate me TQC: am I being the stuborn one because I don't see why he has to drink so much pop everyday?
Ladies with similar hair, what products do you use to make it look good? Mine is driving me INSANE.

July 4th was Friday. Independence Day is America's birthday. That being said, what did you give the US to commemorate it's 232nd birthday?
Have you ever heard your eyes when you are straining them?
Like if I stare with my eyes wide open for a minute or two and don't blink then my eyes get strained/tired and as I fight blinking I hear them trying to blink.
Will I even make it to Monday to call and try to make an appointment with my awesome Russian doctor? ;_;
Who wants to guess what sort of weird, alien malady I have/will die from? I'll leave you something in my will if you get it right! :D
and what are your plans for tomorrow?
What were the symptoms like?
Do any of you have any experience with taking Omega 3 caps for clinical depression? I've been hearing some good reports but also that it might cause gross side effects.
I'd like to ask this in a depression comm, but it seems out of place against all the "woe is me I am depressed" talk...yet I feel kind of like an ass. Am I an ass for not joining and cuddling the depressed people?
Is it possible to give something to someone (either material or abstract) without expecting something in return?
Would you say most relationships are equal in give and take, or some combination?
What are you doing right now (aside from TQC-ing, of course)?
I'm having a Friends marathon :D
*preserve- embalmed, waterproof vault, waterproof casket etc etc so they don't grow mold and stuff
I have no idea.
2) How many trousers, skirts and frocks do you have?
I have 3 frocks, 9 skirts, 5 pairs of trousers and one pair of jeans.
At work a couple of weeks ago, some of the guys were talking about a friend of theirs that had a bit of an accident. The poor guy took a spill off his bike and smashed his face against the edge of a sidewalk, and was mangled up from it pretty badly. In order to keep his cheekbone in place while it healed, his doctors inserted a sort of balloon under his skin that could be inflated when needed, that pressed against the cheekbone so it wouldn't move.
I've heard of these sorts of balloons being used before, in similiar cases, but have no idea what their official name is, if they have one. I know it's an odd thing to be so intrigued about, but does anyone know where I can find more information about them?
Should I wake up early tomorrow to go to the flea market?
What was it for? / What did you do with them?
... STORY PLZ!
And, bonus points if you share.
I was just at a 21st where the Birthday Boy threw a hissyfit and ripped his Razr in half.
eta: at what point do you decide that you're too drunk to drive? is it based off your state's ruling of legal bac, do you have a set maximum alcohol limit that you'll drink, do you really not care and drive wasted anyway?
How well did know the people involved/what was the nature of your relationship?
What did you do...physically?
Everyone says threesomes tend to suck, so I'm curious about the not-suck cases.
If I do stay, I can go to Magic Mountain Monday.
It sounds really shitty, but the only pro I can see for going, other than visiting some old aunts, is to take pictures. Yup I'm a bitch.
For those of you that don't care, shall we have some word association in this bitch?
Thus far I think it was my bike tour around the Aran Islands in Galway, summer 06. It was really hard on someone so asthmatic as me but when we got to the cliffs it was all worth it!
This October my bf and I are considering biking down Mt. Haleakala in Maui. Has anyone done this before?
Are these things on my arm mosquito bites? They itch real bad and they're like mosquito bites but red, sensitive, and smaller. :(
I am eighteen! What kind of lottery ticket should I buy first - Powerball or a scratcher?
Do you need me to go pick you up some cigs?
Do you crochet?
do you kill bugs?
are you afraid of bugs?
what type are you most afraid of?
my husband and I lucked out... i'm afraid of fat hairy spiders with jaws, he's afraid of the others... he calls them the "sporty" ones. so between the two of us we've got the courage to squish them all. i have a strict rule against killing anything outside though, that's their space.
1. Has this ever happened to you? A situation where you feel guilty not eating something someone prepared for you. If so, what happened and how did you handle it?
2. What was the last thing that happened to you that made you extremely happy?
3. What was the last thing that happened to you that made you extremely pissed off?
Have a good day TQC♥
Does this ever happen to you?
What's going to happen today?
Examples: Your partner falls in love and carries on an emotional (but not physical) love relationship with another person OR Your partner regularly has sex with prostitutes (not the same one everytime). What about a longterm emotional AND physical relationship versus sex with prostitutes?
This is, of course, assuming that you have not agreed to an open relationship.
2. if you could create a holiday, what holiday would you make? how often would it be celebrated/what day?
I feel like an ass asking my mom for money if I've lost a job or just came up short on bills, but I KNOW my mom makes a shitload, and she doesn't even try to help much, and birthday/x-mas money is non existent.
i have never really cooked before, i can cook enough to get me by, but nothing too special.
i don't eat meat, and although i eat fish, he isn't so keen. he is reluctant to eat anything that's majorly vegetarian (for example, i know he'd laugh at the idea of replicating something with lentils) but i have no idea what to cook for us.
i have a few vegetarian student cook books on hand for back up, but can you recommend any easy meals i can make for 2 that are vegetarian but a meat lover would also enjoy?
actual recipes would be fantastic :]]]
thanks tqc :]]
Is there any other Wendy Liebman fans out there?
What were the last three things you bought?
( as a gift ). Unfortunately, we don't know if it's a boy or a girl. I have five onesies. What are some gender neutral things that I can paint on these onesies? I was thinking of my dog's paw print for one of them because my sister LOVES my dog...but otherwise, I'm sort of at a loss.
*I can paint fairly well...so it can be something *slightly* complicated
If you really don't care
Is there a certain meal during the week that is more "special" than the others? Or sort of a traditional family meal?
When my grandmother was alive, we'd stick to Italian Sunday dinner. Now, I'm noticing we usually just do a big breakfast together on Sundays instead
Who would you say is the best fictional robot?
Does it drive you nuts when people do this?
(It is because of this "dude you have to see the cool parts" mentality that I have only seen parts of Saving Private Ryan and Black Hawk Down. This vaguely annoys me. The parts are not cool when I have no idea what the fuck is going on, goddammit.)
My boyfriend is cleaning the kitchen, and I'm trying really hard not to go in there and point out all the pointless things he's doing "wrong." A part of me knows the kitchen is going to come out bright and clean, but there's this irrational part of my mind that's screaming, "BUT WHAT IF HE PUTS THE WINE GLASSES NEXT TO THE REGULAR CUPS?!!?!?!" Gaaaah, shut the hell up, stupid irrational voice!
Whenever I use eyeliner, I feel like I look absolutely ridiculous. Maybe my eyes are too round, or my lids are too big..? I know that sounds weird, but I just can't figure it out :/
1. Is it possible that certain types/applications of makeup just don't work with certain people?
2. Do you have any eye tips for someone with extremely round eyes?
3. How did you learn to apply makeup?
have you seen the movie I'm Not There?
what did you think?
and if you haven't seen it... what time did you wake up today?
who do you hope wins wimbeldon today?
What does it/do they say?
1. What are some of your favorite brands of soda?
2. What are some of your least favorite kinds?
3. What are some obscure or extinct brands that you miss?
i. My favorites are regular Pepsi, Pepsi Twist, Diet Coke, Spite, IBC Root Beer, Hanks Root Beer, and Polar Birch Beer.
ii. My least favorites include Shasta, Moxie, Diet mountain Dew, Dr Pepper, Mister Pibb, any grape soda, Caffeine Free Diet Coke, and Fanta. Fanta is so fucking lame, why is Fanta so popular all over the world? The one I hate the most is Mecca-cola: Show your anti-Israel sentiment with your drink preference! Fuck that.
iii. I miss Citra, Surge, Diet Black Cherry Vanilla Coke, RC Cola, sassafras root beer, Crystal Pepsi, and Pepsi Jazz with Black Cherry & French Vanilla.
Abreeva doesn't work for me and I am getting married in less than 2 weeks. Help?
Why might this be happening?
Is it likely a problem with the computer or with the power adapter?
Isn't that the very nature of being human?
Sweet and Sour Chicken:X
2. Is there something you love now that you used to hate?
Is there a particular reason why?
A person who doesn't ask for what they want will rarely get it.
When things suck I'll say "This is butts!" (which surprisingly people don't quite understand when I first say it. If I'm comparing something to a butt...how great do you think it is?)
1. The Labyrinth
2. Sweeney Todd
4. Interview With A Vampire
5. Any episode of Red Dwarf
My choice is limited because my laptop needs fixing and hates most of my dvds.
On the Ben Stiller Show, he had 3 fellow cast members. One of them was Bob Odenkirk. Can you name the other 2 future stars?
Kids in the Hall counted Bruce McCulloch, Kevin McDonald, Scott Thompson, and Mark McKinney. Who was the 5th member?
Monthy Python counted John Cleese, Eric Idle, Michael Palin, Terry Gilliam, Graham Chapman and ________ as members?
My answer changes all the time..
Right now, it's a tie between Lisa Lampanelli and Chelsea Handler

I'm heading into the country w/a small group of chums later this week in celebration of my bff's 21. We're going on a wine tasting tour, having lunch at a vineyard and stopping into see this famous medium/psychic before heading back into the city for partytime. The medium was just suppose to be a spot of fun, as none of us believe in all that hubalub.
But I'm starting to freak out just the slightest over it, turns out her area of expertise is talkin to dead folks. Now, let's just say I've been to alot of funerals in my 20 years. Some of which still don't sit to well with me. I'm really scared this lady's going to hit a nerve leading me to complete and utter breakdown. Thus ruining the partytimes.
Should I make up some excuse not to go and just meet up with them in the city that night?
Do you believe in Mediums, Astrologers, or Psychics?
The one with the most toppings, the biggest, the cheesiest, at random?
Can I wear either of these outfits to work?
Help me, Obi Wan, you're my only hope
Do you like apple cider?
How do you feel about unpasteurized apple cider? EDIT: Would you drink it?
My favorite apple cider is from a local orchard and is unpasteurized, and I've yet to die or get sick from drinking it.
2. if any of you have been pregnant, did you develop stretch marks on your sides--sort of near the rib area?
Ever use a bidet?
Anyway, I'm moving into my very first apartment HOPEFULLY this week (*grumble* fucking paperwork...) and of course I need a first floor apartment and so I requested one. Thing is, the deposit for it went up since we asked for a first floor... I don't know if the rent goes up too, they're being vague about so much shit it wouldn't surprise me.
I was annoyed about it but didn't think a lot of it at the time... but the thing is, several friends have told me that since I'm disabled (yes, I have the paperwork to prove it) that they CAN'T charge more for a first floor, because it's a necessity and not just because I'm lazy or something and that by charging ME to have a first floor apartment that they are violating the ADA.
Is this true, TQC?
If so, should I even fucking bother doing anything about it or just suck it up and pay more?
also... i am doing a debate on same-sex adoption. i am for it, but i am debating against it. what are some of the main reasons you (or people in general) are against same-sex couples adopting?
Has this happened to you before?
What was the last thing that made you literally jump up and down in happiness?
Will you post pictures of your eyes? Or eye? ^_^
I have 3.5 credits left of my degree tqc. (out of 20)
My options are 1) to take 1 course during the year and finish in summer (while I work a couple jobs and chillax)
or 2) finish during the year, but feel increasingly more worn down and less sane as I got into my SIXTH year of undergrad.
Everyone I've talked to says finish it in the year, but I rock summer courses hard, and the weather cheers me whereas in winter I am downtrodden and depressed, and need things to be up lifting.
Which would you do if you were me?
Is anyone else DYING to finish school?
Are you good at recognizing worthwhile tqc drama or are you retarded?
should I color my hair white/platnom blonde?
Feel free to add any other information you think might be relevant, like your age, whether its for your biological parents, how long they've been married, etc.
I'm in the "Only for the big ones" camp, since half the time they forget their anniversary anyways.

Did you know that I basically love all of you?
I'm currently in the hobby of making terrible (albeit filled with love) friendship bracelets.
Would you like me to make you one and send it to you?
I normally live in Abbotsford, B.C., Canada. I drive west for just an hour to stay in Vancouver during the summers. We in Abbotsford always joke about our crappy air; the ocean blows Vancouver pollution east, but the mountains make it float above Abbotsford. In Vancouver, the air is better, I get way more exercise from my full-time job, I'm eating 10x healthier, and sleeping for at least 8 hours every night.
Yet, my skin is going to hell. I used to have awful skin and went to the doctor to fix it. I'm on birth control, which fixed the worst of it, and I have a daily regime of acne-scrub in the shower, prescription clindamycin dabbed on the face, and a super hypoallergenic, noncomedogenic moisturizer. This, along with a an acne spot-treatment (which I've been having to use like crazy now that I'm here). And I'm an inherently lazy person, but my skin was so awful that I will not miss a step with this.
Part of the problem is my mum is South American, and I have inherited her crazy oily skin. If I'm not careful, people look at my shiny nose and see Jesus.
Has anyone else had this kind of problem before? Where your skin has gone to hell for no good reason?
What do you use to keep your skin clear? Do you recommend anything? Anyone else had acne from the black lagoon and went to pretty nice skin? (Pictures, if you have them!)

What is some of the best tricks you know for taking care of babies, like little tips?
My MIL could not believe that any parent would do that. My parents took off my door because I slammed it too many times and they were sick of listening to it.
2. Can you do splits? If so, how long did it take you to get that flexible, and what was your training regimen?
3. If neither of those questions apply (or even if they do), what is something unusual that you can do?

2) Have you ever bought anything from an infomercial? Was it worth it? Is there anything you're tempted to buy now? I kind of want the pasta maker thing, but I'm still paying off the $90 Hydromop that I somehow convinced myself to buy, which is, btw, WORTHLESS.

No More Kings has been stuck in my head all day. That's my favorite. It's purty
I'm in the assignment lacuna- too guilty to have fun, too nervous to be effective. all I can see is the massive amount of beads and things to glue to other things around.
do you see the appeal of gluing things to other things?
what is your favorite thing to glue to some other thing?
I like gluing plastic things to metal things.
2. Will you post a picture of you when you was a baby?

I really want to try it and I'm planning to give it a go next week up in PEI. YAY.
Also, has anyone tried caching with a vehicle GPS rather than a handheld? We only have a Garmin StreetPilot c530 and I'm not too confident in how this is going to work. *fingers crossed*
My next 3 options are:
Pride & Prejudice
When Harry Met Sally
Please tell me, TQC, which one should I watch? And why?
ETA: When Harry Met Sally it is. This will be maybe the 200th time I've watched it in my life, including once yesterday, but you are all correct in that it is one of the best movies to watch, ever.

On Thursday, we had a party of 45 (high school students plus chaperones) come in to eat. I work at a family-owned place that's mostly a bar/drinking, with I as the only waitress/bartender and one cook. It was crazy, seriously. At the end of the night one of the chaperones asked me in a sweet, sweet voice: "Oh, should we have called ahead? I'm sorry!"

My boyfriend needs to use one, and I have a love-hate relationship with the CPAP device. While it greatly reduces his snoring and allows him to sleep through the night, I want to cuddle with him and this thing on his face makes it difficult.

Credo in Deum Patrem omnipotentem; Creatorem coeli et terrae.
Et in Jesum Christum, Filium ejus unicum, Dominum nostrum; qui conceptus est de Spiritu Sancto, natus ex Maria virgine; passus sub Pontio Pilato, crucifixus, mortuus, et sepultus; descendit ad inferna; tertia die resurrexit a mortuis; ascendit ad coelos; sedet ad dexteram Dei Patris omnipotentis; inde venturus (est) judicare vivos et mortuos.
Credo in Spiritum Sanctum; sanctam ecclesiam catholicam; sanctorum communionem; remissionem peccatorum; carnis resurrectionem; vitam oeternam. Amen.
Unacceptable answers include "prayer" and "Catholic bullshit" (but we'll get that, won't we children?)

I got a call about a place wanting me to come in for an interview. I applied there like two weeks ago and since that time, I got a job. I want a second part time job though. Should I let the hiring manager know beforehand, or go to the interview and let her know if they offer me the job? (It's just another retail job, if it makes a difference)
