habits, sleep, and pets

Do you have any bad/weird/creeptastic habits that you would never share with anyone else but TQC? What?

I have a hard time falling asleep at night, and I've been missing class. What should I do to rectify this sad state?

Why are people so big on pets? Eg sleeping with them, kissing them, buying a dog when you are a couple/married, talking about them like they are your kid, paying thousands of dollars for medicine, etc. To me, pets are just animals, and my (usually Western) friends think I'm crazy.

I have an aunt (by marriage, now divorced) who suffers from schizophrenia. I haven't spoken with her in about ten years. She's a good person and tolerable when on her meds. I have no idea if she's on them now or not or why she called me a couple of nights ago.

Should I call her back? In a way I don't feel like dealing with her drama, but I feel bad because she can't really help it. Then again she's prone to threatening people. Then again it could be the most interesting convo ever.

Would you say that you are a jealous person?

If so who was the last person that made you jealous? And how?

I can happily say that in most situations, I'm not so much of a jealous person.

 I'm working on this oil pastel pic of Heath!Joker(full body) to work through my TDK obsession until the movie comes out, yet I have no clue what to put in the background. Originally I thought to maybe just make it black with HA HA HA in huge red letters behind him though that seems boring. For a moment I thought of putting the Batman 'bat shadow' behind him all menecing-like. Alas, seeing as I'm doing another one of Batman, this also seemed to be a poor idea. What do you suggest for the background?

On a related note: Do you plan to see the Dark Knight movie? When?

I'm 17, just got hired for a job, and was asked to come in today to fill out some forms. (training doesn't start for another week) Well the woman who hired me said to bring two forms of id, like "your license, soc security card, birth certificate, etc.." and I just discovered I have no idea where my original birth certificate is. After drivers ed it just kind of got lost somewhere in the house. I also lost my soc sec card a while ago and need to apply for a new one.

So, is having my license and a copy of my birth cert enough? I also have things like my insurance, health card, etc, would they accept those too?

Family drama

After 7 years of trying to like my SIL, her bitchy, hypocritical, snobby, self-centered, superior, irritating self has made it impossible. She called a while ago and in a fit of histrionics shrieked at my husband for an hour that we hate her kids and don't want to have a relationship with them and why can't we make extra time to see them and blah blah blah. This is a woman who doesn't work, whose husband works when he feels like it, and who has at least 3 women who come in to watch her kids and do housework. I work full-time and my husband works 6-day weeks often. It's also an expensive pain in the ass for us to go visit her in NYC. She also now senses that I dislike her and doesn't understand why, even after my husband told her why. My husband wants me to talk to her, but I think if I say what's on my mind then it will do nothing to improve the situation and might make it worse, but he thinks if she and I don't get along then he and she won't have a relationship.

What do you suggest? Talk to her and tell her the truth? Continue avoiding her?

Have you ever been fired?

My boss just busted me for a really sloppy, careless mistake I made, that was noticed by one of the senior partners (I work in a law firm.) It's not a mistake that has any big consequences but still, I'm worried. I've been at this job under 3 months and I'm still on "probation."

When you were fired, was it a suprise? Did you get explicit warnings?

How do you make a really hard decision?

I'm trying to decide where to go to school, and whether or not I should move.  I've already made pro/con lists and all of that, but I'm still just not sure.  Any good ideas?

Edit:
Pros for moving -
I've never lived away from home before
Possibly better major options
Only an hour away from my boyfriend (instead of 16)
Cheaper

Cons for moving -
Moving away from home
Leaving my house
Being away from my family

Backstory:
Question 1. I signed up at Classmates.com ages ago. The site bites because you have to pay to do anything there; contact a person, view photos, etc. So I cheated the system and left my personal email and my myspace url with a note that says, "Hey, contact me this way!"
Well, people keep signing my guestbook and to view who signed, I have to upgrade my acct (aka pay).

Question 2. Video Games Live is coming to my town. My kids are 4 1/2 and it says all ages but the show doesn't start until 8pm and kids that age typically go to sleep about 9 or 10. The show is slated for 2 1/2 hours.

Digestion questions

Is there any special or famous food from your area (e.g. Philly Cheesesteak, Florida oranges)? Are you proud of it, do you know the best place to get authentic [food], can you make a great version yourself, or are you sick of it?

Do you poop at work? If so, do you have any special arrangements you have to make, like waiting for everyone else to go to lunch or running the water while you're in there? If not, why not, and what do you do in an emergency?

It's the same brand, so it won't clash with any of the prep products they use, but the choices they gave me last time were mostly fug.

When I was in elementary school, we watched a series of videos that were kind of apocalyptic (or something like it) and the people in the video were trying to save the world and they had to learn about libraries in order to do it.  They were live-action, and fantastically bad.

So here's my dilemma...

In a nutshell, I had an awesome wedding on June 29. Great weather, everyone had a great time, my hair didn't frizz, you get the picture. The only thing that marred the day was that my first cousin did not show up. Did not show up, did not call to say why. She DID send back the RSVP card about 3 weeks prior and said that she and her DH would be attending. She also called me to confirm. Needless to say, I was angry. If you can't come for whatever reason, fine. THEN PICK UP THE PHONE OR SEND ME AN EMAIL! Not to do anything is just.plain.rude.

I waited the obligatory week to see if I would get said phone call or email. Nada. So, I wrote a short email to her:

"We were very disappointed that you not did not attend our wedding but never even called to tell us you weren't coming. This speaks volumes and is something I will never forget."

Well today I get an email back, stating she "totally forgot" about my wedding because she had to put her dog down and she's been very upset about it. Can I please forgive her. Granted, I am the biggest dog lover in the solar system but I would STILL find a way to make my cousin's wedding, dammit! And, geez, don't you have a friggin' calendar or daybook?

What would YOU do? Would you forgive and forget? The bitch side of me says, no way. People I've known for less than a year came to my wedding. This is someone I've known all my life.

Which color laptop?

I am getting a Dell Inspiron 1420 laptop! I am having a difficult time picking what color to get. I am am incredibly indecisive person...but hey we all have our flaws. I am choosing between the pink, green and yellow. I'm not really interested in the other colors. My reasoning: I adore the pink the most but I worry that I may outgrow the color, get sick of it and eventually hate my laptop. I think the green is nice..but I can't really tell what the color would look like in real life. I would prefer more of a green apple color to a uh...sage like color? I also like the yellow but people tell me not to get it as it is a little TOO out there. Help? Collapse )

Keep in mind what I said about the colors (remember you are picking for me!)

If anybody actually has one of these colors and could post another picture that would be nice as well.

Cheating boyfriend part II

Thanks for all the support from everyone <3, it really does help a lot. I know he was a ass, and I'll be better off without him. I'm forever great full I'm not the one with the baby, but for the time being, it really hurts...

The question? His parents don't know yet, I'm really tempted to call and tell them. I know his mom pretty much loved me and his grandma thought I was the best thing in the world. I don't want to hurt them, but I do think they should know. If I do it'll be along the lines of "You really need to talk to chris" type thing. Should I tell them, or just stay out of it? They'll find out soon enough on their own.

Also, is it horrible of me to hope the baby doesn't make it, for the sake of the baby?

1. So it turns out I am probably not as gay as I thought because I have a massive crush on my summer school teacher.

We talk after class for about 20 minutes almost everyday and he makes me feel squishy.

-The drive down will cost about $60 in gas.

As my wallet has been raped for their wedding, I'm not planning to get the bride and groom a gift.

Am I wrong here?

What is your favorite magazine?

My mother loves magazines and subscribes to any and all magazines. She travels out of the state daily and loves magazines because she can read them and throw them out. Anyway, she's pretty much subs to a ton of titles; I'm talking not only the mainstream stuff like the tabloids (Star, US Weekly) but also to the education stuff like (National Geographic, Time Magazine) Even the ethnic titles like Latina and Ebony. She just picked up the Advocate and loves reading about the gays. She just found out about Audrey the "Asian American Women's Lifestyle Magazine".

My question is what is your favorite magazine that you either pick up daily or subscribe to? Any unique titles you have stumbled upon in the past? She's looking for more titles. I'm trying to get her to subscribe to tattoo magazines but there are so many titles out there. Is there any good ones that stand out from the rest? Thanks!

Am I crazy for wanting to pay $38 a ticket for floor seats at the Wiggles concert?

If it makes a difference, we saw them last year and got the cheapo seats. It was such a good concert that I kinda wanna pay the big money this year. ALSO! They are coming to my town this year. We drove 4 hours to see them last year. AND they come down and mingle!!!

I'm dealing with a bit of an internal struggle right now, so advice from the all-wise TQC would be great.

I got a job a few months back with the A&F Corporate office. During the interview, I explained that my schedule was very flaky and that there would come a time where I'd need to leave for several weeks because of my other job, quite possibly without much notice. Surprisingly, they agreed that this was fine, and said that they had no problem with it, so long as I gave them a date that I would return. Well, the time came (like I said it would before I was even hired,) and I left for two weeks, then called halfway through the first week to ask for one more off. I called on my drive home from NYC and asked what the next week's schedule looked like, only to be told I had been taken off of it and termed out. I was told I could come back and re-apply, but I haven't, and don't think I want to.

Is this fair, TQC? I'm not so much mad as I am bitter. Do you think it's worth going back? I could leave again really soon, and I don't know for how long this time. I'm going to be doing a fair amount of traveling in July and August, and my bank account doesn't look good.

Has anyone ever tried a Temp Agency?

Shoelaces

Where can I look at (uh, and buy) nice shoelaces, online? Patterned, or coloured.

I'm in Australia, but I don't care where I buy from, it's not like postage for shoe laces is going to be expensive.

I've just bought some grey shoes and they're nice but they need something to make them look more interesting. I tried in-person stores today but none of the shoe stores I went into sold shoe laces separately. What kind of stores sell laces separately anyway?

Note: not Hello-kitty cutesy, or emo.

hey tqc!

my friends and i want to have some great adventures this summer, so we're trying to figure out what we can do. we already had a mini amusement park tour, we'll be going camping, white water rafting, (maybe) skydiving, maybe visiting NYC, but there's got to be more.

if you wanted to do fun stuff to take advantage of the summer, what would you do?
do you have any stories about fun vacation trips that you'll share?

/edit: US folks, what are easy/cheap ways of getting around the north-eatern part of the states, like new york, new jersey, etc?
zombie baby cede! :D

 sorry for the double post, 

This has become my internship's theme song. However, we have no idea what they are actually saying. TQC, do any of you speak Punjab Tamil????

What the hell are they saying?

The back of my birth control pack (Yasmin, if it matters) says that I have to keep it at 77F at the hottest.  I live in California and we're going through a brutal heat wave and I accidentally left my birth control in the car all day while I was at work.  It was around 100 degrees and obviously much hotter in the car.  Do you think my pills are still safe or should I use a backup method of birth control until I run out of the pill pack (5 more pills including the one I'm taking tonight)?  I asked the ask_a_nurse community but they usually take a while to respond.

I'm leaving for Europe next week and I've read that when traveling, it's a good idea to keep your money&such in a bag or pouch that hangs on your neck and tucks inside your clothing, so that pickpockets can't get at it. I was going to do this, until I realized that the clothing I wear in the summer is nowhere near baggy enough to have anything tucked inside it.

My question is:
In light of this, what other actual working solutions are there for not having your money stolen while on vacation? I know one-shoulder bags are really bad, but I mean is there anything else? I I'm not tricky enough to have any inside pockets. And fanny packs are generally horrendous, but I mean if you know of a good one then feel free to link me. Ideas please?

Edit: Thank you guys for all the help! : D
