When was the last time you had a nice, long bubble bath?

I have been very stressed out lately and constantly on the run. What should I do to pamper myself? Besides the long, hot shower [despite the weather] that I plan on taking after or before breakfast tomorrow.

I love when I start going through all my old music, and I find a band that I really love but have forgotten to listen to for a while.

What is the last band or musician you fell back in love with?

For me, today, it's early 90s R.E.M. Nightswimming, omg.

Dr.TQC :
I have a question. (duh) For the last week I have had pressure/pain in my eyes. It feels simular to a sore muscle after working out. The only way I get relife is if I press against my eyes with the heels of my hand.

Should I go to a doctor?
Am I going to die?

What is wrong?
srs/nonsrs please.

EDIT: Do you think I could wait another week to go to the doctor? or should I ask my boss to let me off for a day?

I have a large bag of Starburst candies. It has all four normal flavors: strawberry, orange, cherry, and lemon. I've been reaching into this bag without looking for the past fifteen minutes and eating whatever flavor I grabbed. Glancing inside the bag now, I can see it's mixed up. There's a little of every color lying there.

So, TQC, how come every single candy I've pulled out has been a damn cherry flavor? I want variety!

So, I was watching the Penn & Teller episode of Bullshit about porn and the self proclaimed feminists they interviewed were all against porn, stating that its derogatory towards women and promotes instances of rape.

Then I'm reading the NY Times today and in an op-ed about Twilight of all things Jessica Valenti, author of Full Frontal Feminism, states that "she worries that in the real world, young men are spending so much time watching pornography on the Internet that they will never be satisfied with normal women and normal relationships."

So I ask, what's up with all the porn hate? Also, why do these so called liberal thinking women seem to imply that only men watch porn? Do you have an issue with porn or do you openly enjoy it?

I'm in a healthy relationship in which both my boyfriend and I watch porn. I love porn. I do not however love rape and treating women like shit. I'm going to go out on a limb here and guess most people that watch porn feel the same way.

Is Collapse ) too obnoxious? I plan on taking the whistle and that thing with it off. Should I just return it?

I think the color is a bit more accurate in the stock pictures here. I bought it at Century 21 so it didn't cost nearly that much.

EDIT: Which is the most hideous aspect of it, the color or the style?

What if I keep it folded up, is that any better? Why do I have such bad taste?

Why do people think it's acceptable to stop immediately after they step off an escalator? Do you do this? What should happen to people who do this?

Have you ever been involved in an escalator pile-up because someone decided it would be a grand idea to stop immediately after getting off the escalator?

But wait! There's more!

1. Have you ever bought anything off from an infomercial?
Do you know anyone who has? If so, what was it and did it deliver on its promise?

2. Have you ever had the urge to buy something off from an infomercial? Again, if so, what was it?

3. What's the weirdest thing you've seen on sale on an infomercial?

4. And last but not least, if you are a non-American or non-Canadian, do they air infomercials in your country? What do they sell?

It's late and I was flipping through the channels when this question popped in my head.

Dear TQC:

Why can I not fall asleep, despite being exhausted? I work nights, and I should have gone to bed like two hours ago. I am grouchy and fatigued and would like to not go all crazy-psycho on customers tomorrow due to overwhelming sleeplessness-induced bitchiness.

What are some things you do to fall asleep when you're over-tired?

Anyway, I'm going to try and sleep. Srs and non-srs answers welcome for like, when I wake up tomorrow. I hope there are macros. Lots and lots of macros.

baby shower ideas!

One of my best friends is having her first baby at the end of September. My roommates and I (along with said friend's sister) are in charge of throwing a shower.

What kind of food is generally served at a baby shower? Right now, I was thinking a lunch meat/cheese tray, and maybe meatballs to make sandwiches (and of course some sort of rolls to go along with these), a few varieties of potato chips, maybe a veggie and dip tray, cans or 2-liters of soda, and of course a cake. It'll be in mid afternoon (like 3-5 or so), so should it just be something light? I'd imagine people have eaten lunch by then, and it is a little early for supper...

Are there any fun shower games that aren't totally hokey? There will probably be at least a few men at this shower (is THAT weird?! I didn't wanna exclude her husband, as he gets excluded from a LOT of stuff that we do - and well, it's HIS baby too, and I don't want him to be the ONLY guy, so I'll be inviting some others that we work with), and I don't think they're gonna be too into the "sniff the diaper and tell me what's in it" kind of game.

And how about decorations? It's a girl, so are just some pink and white balloons, and maybe some cute "it's a girl!" banners adequate?

What would you think if a girl you knew was planning to "oops" her significant other -- by poking holes in the condoms, stopping her BC unbeknownst to him, whatever? Do you think it's ever justified?

ETA: I probably should have put this in the original post (duh), so: I should add that I don't know this girl IRL. She was just some chick on my friends list. This all happened months ago, and I told her exactly what I thought of her at the time. She immediately defriended me -- no big loss. I just thought this info needed to be clarified, since by some of the comments I think some people are getting the idea that I knew her and just didn't tell her boyfriend. I had no idea who her bf was, so I had no idea of how to contact him.


1. Does anyone else ever feel nauseated right after they wake up?

For as long as I can remember, whenever I wake up, I just feel like I'm going to throw up. This feels especially bad right after I brush my teeth or drink a glass of water on an empty stomach. The feeling goes away after like 15 minutes or less, but I don't understand why it's there in the first place!

2. Would the empty stomach have anything to do with it?

P.S. I'm not preggo, by the way, this has been happening for like years.

So as you all know, i am "acting manager" at my job.

Lately the girl whos been working at the store for 2 years has been acting up. She comes in late, doesnt finishing her paperwork, and her drawer has been short almost 20 dollars twice in a week.

Oh and her excuse for being late: "Well there were a lot of cops around so i couldnt speed, like i normally do" WTF?

Anyway, i dont have the authority to write her up or anything, but i do make the schedule. Am I out of line to give the new girl i just hired (and is phenomenal) more hours, and the old girl less hours? Shes used to have about 25, and i was thinking of cutting her to about 15.

Shes really petty and i know she will call someone above me to tell on me. I just want to make sure im not crazy in thinking this is the right decision.

Any other ideas of what i can do? The reason she is like this is because the previous manager never gave her any consequences for her bullshit.

i just got back from vacay, and i missed you, TQC.

For those with uteruses...uteri...whatever...

Have you ever had a dream where you pregnant? And didn't want to be pregnant?

Last night, I had a nightmare that my boyfriend managed to "oops" me, declared something about how his now magnificent seed will be passed on to future generations (wtf?), and left me to go live with his new, blond girlfriend. And she was like, one of those women who tried to look really pretty, but just looked all fake and plastic.

Oh, and he somehow managed to make the baby invincible, so I couldn't get an abortion. D:

how do you tell someone who gets very butthurt easily, and guilt trips, that you might not be able to or don't want to hang out?

(i.e. they're heavy on the guilt trips, whining, sounding and being upset/brooding for a while about things like not hanging out....and most other things)

i know honesty is the best policy, which eventually would come out with "i can't/don't want to have out today" during a conversation but what's the best way to go about it without receiving shitloads of guilt trips and being nice about it?

i'm almost too afraid to call because i know they'll rip me a new one over something like hanging out, even though there were no set-in-stone plans for something to do today.

2. What's your favorite outdoor activity?

EDIT: I love being outside (not so much in the winter, though, but any other season). The only things I really do outside are ... lay in the sun and go hiking. Even when I go hiking, they're not really intense, crazy hikes. Will you recommend an outdoor sport or activity or something that I should do? I'm in pretty good shape but I do have asthma so I couldn't run a marathon or anything. AND I don't know how to swim.

Being a woman, I find myself scratching my head at a lot of things men do. One thing in particular intrigues me. Why do men pound their chests when they're playing sports? Is this some kind of alpha male/caveman leftover thing? I've seen a lot of athletes do this...get a basket, pound your chest...hit a home run, pound your chest. Sometimes with one fist, sometimes with two.

Why do men pound their chests? When did this start?

A few days ago I posted asking for folks opinions on cell phones, as I know nothing about them. I ended up getting a Palm Centro. It would be spiffy, except the folk at the store set the default language to Spanish, and I cannot figure out how to change it to English. I tried google-fuing up an answer, but have thus far failed miserably to come up with anything that makes sense. (I saw some things saying to hard reboot it and then select English, but when I hard reboot it, it just asks me about my date and time setting -- in Spanish. D:)

Do any of you know how to fix it, or how to google-fu up an answer that is easier to understand?

A World Of Health

At my favorite grocery store they have a refrigerator that says "A World Of Health" which you can tell was meant to be used to for a certain company's products. The whole side was a big ad for whatever it was, but they have since ripped that off and started keeping hot dogs in it.

Do any of you know what product it was originally for? Google is not turning up very much. I think it might have been some kind of drink but I really can't remember.

Do you consider hotdogs to be a world of health?

i want to look more cute!

i've grown out of my seriously boyish tendencies and i'm not quite a tomboy anymore but i am still a bit less than girly. i like to dress cute, but i look awkward if i wear something that is overly frilly or cutesy. i want to buy some new medium-cute things to wear out on the weekends. i'm in a good mood but feeling very lazy. i'd like to shop from my computer.

tqc, can you link me to a website with cute semi-girly clothes?
can you link me to a specific article of clothing that is only sort of girly?

i would especially like some cute shorts and jackets that aren't hoodies.. for some reason i CAN NOT handle shopping for cute shorts or anything warm other than zip up sweat shirts.

is your body properly proportioned?

i'm a little worried about buying clothes online because of my skinny body, wide hips, long torso, and short legs, haha

i also asked for cute easy hairdos recently but didn't get many answers. feel free to tell me about those, too. pleeeease.

My cat is really sick. She started puking this morning and has been puking off and on all day, and just now she puked up a bunch of clear mucus.
