I need a new SUV. What should I get?
I really, really love the new Honda Pilots. The only problem is that the closest dealer is 4 hours away. If there's any problem with it then I don't want to have to pay for it to be towed all that way.

I refuse to buy a Ford.

Why am I always the best friend, and never the girlfriend?

So I just spoke to some guy who I thought was about to confess his undying love for me, but instead, he confesses his undying love for some other chick.

Awesome.

He's a crier.. What can I do to make him cry to get him back for the heartache he's caused?

ABC Party Costume

This weekend a guy from work is going to throw an "ABC" (anything but clothes) Party. 
The rules are pretty self-explainatory: people can wear trashbags, grass skirts and coconut bras, duct tape, etc. as long as it's not real clothes. Going nude isn't an option... 

So what should I wear?

Feel free to be creative. =)   
edit: underwear is required as well, yes I know they are clothes but they are his rules... and I honestly don't blame him, haha.

imagine you and your boyfriend broke up a few weeks ago, and now you're talking again and you might get back together. one night, you get scared he might not actually still love you like he's been saying and you ask him if he does. after he says that he's not sure but that he knows he does care a lot about you, you're still a little teary and he says "oh stop it with the water works." how do you react?


i really get the feeling that a lot of you would be a hell of a lot more offended than i was, lol.

eta: his tone wasn't dickish, it was more like "you know i still care you and you have no reason to cry and i don't want you to." it wasn't like "stop crying, bitch!"

although this is srsly like the fourth time you guys have told me to leave him. : \

Do you know any funny Italian songs besides that silly Dominic the Donkey one? I'm in the mood for something LIKE that, but NOT that.

I only know of one and I can't even really remember it but they say something like tippity tippity tah. And they talk about a saxophone and mandolin or something. Anyone know what I'm talking about?!

If not, will you tell me what news you watch or read? I want to be educated, but every time I put on a news station they just tell me about stories I don't care about, or the weather. I want to know the important things, not how to save money grocery shopping.

My MacBook's hard drive crashed, and I'm going to have it replaced (the replacement is covered by Applecare). However, I'll lose everything on my hard drive. I'm not planning on shelling out the money for an external hard drive just to save some songs and pictures.

A friend told me that it might be possible to transfer files from my MacBook to my mom's Mac desktop using a firewire cable.

Is this possible?
Has anyone ever tried transferring files from a dead hard drive to another computer using a firewire?
Is there a particular type of fireweire to buy for a mac-to-mac hookup?

Dial 1-800-Mixalot

If you call someone and they don't answer, do you:
a) leave a message?
b) hang up without leaving a message?
c) hang up and call again?
d) hang up and call again and again and again and again and again until someone answers?

During summer break, and your parents were at work, were you capable of NOT calling them five times a day for the most random reasons? Were you capable of wiping your own ass without having to call mom for detailed instructions?

Do any of your co-workers have super obnoxious cell phone ringtones? "Sue" has that "my ya hee, my ya hoo" dance song as her ringer, and I swear to God, I want to shove her phone right up her nose every time it goes off.

TQC, validate me please!

My brother's gf is a little crazy. She decided yesterday to clean our bathroom. My dog has a lot of accidents, and yesterday there was pee on the toilet. I laughed, because at least he had the right idea, right? She yelled at me and told me I wouldn't be f-n laughing if I had to f-n lick it...which didn't make much sense, because she was cleaning it, not licking it, and she decided to clean the bathroom, no one asked her, so why is she so angry? TQC, should she have yelled at me? Does she have the right to yell at me in my own home, where I live and she doesn't?
She also likes to yell at my dog and call him an asshole (when he makes noises because he's excited to see her). She I rub my dog's butt on her pillow?

This may seem like a strange question, but I'm just dying of curiosity here. The daughter of my mother's childhood friend moved to California a few years ago to be an actress. She's gotten some roles in minor movies and whatnot. Her MySpace page is private and I don't know her well enough to send her a message, but she's always leaving status updates about working on various shows like "The Ghost Whisper", "Without A Trace", "Young and the Restless, etc. However, her Internet Movie Database page doesn't reflect these roles. These aren't speaking parts, right? She's just an extra? I don't think she would really lie about it since before she made her profile public there were pictures of her on the sets of these shows.

So, TQC, is she an extra on these shows? She seems to be working on a new one every day. I don't know how things work over there.

Is there any word that you misspell because you were falsely taught how to spell it in the first place? Or that you just constantly misspell and you need to look up all the time?

When I was younger, I would watch the Disney channel and those commercials to Imagineer That! with the robot, Tom Morrow. Whenever I would spell the word "tomorrow" I knew that either the M's or the R's are double, and because of the Tom Morrow robot, I assumed it was the M's, if not both, and I actually have to restrain myself from spelling "tommorrow."

Totally unrelated questions

Dear TQC,

When you hear someone use the phrase "back and to the left" (for example, when giving directions), does it make you think of the Kennedy assassination?

Do you know what the deal is with blood test requirements for marriage licenses? I know not all states require them, and the only explanation I can find is that they're testing for venereal disease, which I assumed. Do they just assume that partners don't tell the truth (or don't know) about their STD history? Is it a way for public health to keep track of people with venereal diseases? Is it somehow related to their children having good health? Do you know what they test for? Wikipedia says only syphilis.

I realize it's mostly outdated at this point, presumably because people keep better track of their disease status (well, some people do). Or is there another reason why it's no longer considered necessary (or, possibly, any of their business)?

Apple Student Promotion

okay, you know how Apple has that student promotion where you buy a Macbook and get a "free" iPod (you pay for it and then get a full rebate depending on the size you choose)?

is this only available through the Apple website, or are retailers honouring it too?

i'm asking because i don't have a credit card, so ordering from the Apple website is going to take more effort now (ie. i have to write a cheque, call Apple and order that way, and then mail the cheque. i'm thinking it will probably be annoying having to list the specs i want and have to actually talk to a person, too.)

plus, if i could buy my things from a real store, it would probably be better for my line of credit if i use a retailer's no-interest 24-month payment plan instead of taking $3000 out of my account all at once, right?

tell me what you know, tqc!

So I want to get back to working out, but I am so over going to the gym or doing any type of standard cardio workout like getting on the treadmill/elliptical machine/stair master/bike etc. etc. I want my workouts to help my body but also relax me and help me meditate a bit.

So have any of you tried qigong, tai thi, bellydancing, yoga, pilates, or hula dancing as a form of exercise? anything else? any good dance workouts that are more dance and less workout?

Which one provided you with the most beneficial workout that helped you relax and stretch but also did help you tone your body? I know that Pilates is pretty good for this, but that can get a little tiresome and cardioish after a while? so are there any other suggestions?

have any of you tried Zumba? what's that like? as silly as it looks? any other good dance workouts that are more dance and less workout? haha!

cruddy restaurant experience

So, I met up with a good friend who is moving away at a restaurant about an hour from where I live.  We suffered questionable-to-crappy service, but as a long-time server, I tried to be compassionate and still left a good tip (probably about 20-30%, which is my low-to-mid range).

However, I checked my bank account today and found that not only did this guy charge my card for my $15 meal, but also charged my card for my friend's $20 check as well.  The guy split up the checks for us and was specifically informed as to whose bill was whose, and took each card away in the same hand as its respective bill.  I am pretty unhappy as this is not a small amount of money to me right now.  I do not have my receipt (I specifically remember leaving it on the table because I wouldn't need it, I thought) and of course I don't have my friend's receipt.

Would you:
-Try to fight the restaurant to get your money back, even though it is an hour away and you don't have either receipt for evidence?  If so, how would you go about it?
-Say "fuck it" and consider it a nice moving away present to your friend?
-Other?

Weak ankles

Hello everybody. I would really love to start running, but I have extremely weak ankles. Whenever I jump or run, I twist my ankles. I noticecd that my feet tend to roll outward (supination?), and I'm not sure if it's connected, but I'm also slightly bowlegged.

I have no idea what I should be looking for in shoes...

Does anybody have suggestions of good running/walking shoes for me?

Do you think I should get orthotics? If so, how long do orthotics even last? Are they worth the money?

I'm also a vegetarian, so no leather shoes please.

person A is stopped at a red light waiting to turn left. Person B is across from A and wants to go straight. When the light turns green B doesn't go-for whatever reason-a homeless person is talking to them, they're not paying attention etc. Person A gives them a few seconds to be polite but they don't take it so as A decides to go. As person A is already coming out to turn person B realizes the light is green and goes.

Do you think person A was right to go ahead or should they have waited or should person B have waited since they were the ones that didn't go when they were supposed to?

Will you show me a picture of your favorite room/furnishing/whatever in your house/apartment/condo for inspiration, excitement, and jealousy purposes?!

I'm leaving my job. They're throwing me a going away party, and I'd like to get them something nice to remember me by, but I have no idea what to get. We're a pretty relaxed, close knit office. It's a CPA firm, there are a total of 7 people including me. There isn't really anything they're lacking, there's nothing they really tease me about or associate with me, I was thinking maybe a nice plant or something? Does anyone have any suggestions?

If you could change one relatively minor thing about yourself in the next week, what would it be?

If someone hadn't seen you in about a year, what would they notice as different?

ew.

Are you a germaphobe?

Will you tell me something that grosses you out?

YES, I am very germaphobic. D:

Here's something that grossed me out today, I usually wrap a sheet of toilet paper around the head of my toothbrush when i'm not using it so the water and germs from it won't drip on the bathroom counter. My aunt is sick of me doing that and complains about how much toilet paper i'm wasting, so she got me these plastic toothbrush covers and told me to start using those. I tried it out, and a few minutes ago, I looked at it, and it was a disgusting sight.
There were already dried up saliva marks, and a cloudy spot at the bottom of the thing. :(
I think I much rather have the germs drip on the bathroom counter, at least that can be easily wiped up.

1. Why, oh why did I have an anxiety attack today? (Wasn't too horrible, but it still sucked.)

2. Is it going to rain enough to cool things the hell down in my neck of the woods?

3. Leftovers: chicken or steak? And what side dish?

Yoo sofa king wee todd did.

Why is it so difficult for intelligent economics/mathematics professors to use spell-check on assignments, tests and handouts? Can they chew gum and walk simultaneously?

Does it cause them indigestion, painful erections or anal abscesses to check their work before insulting English majors with their pitiful efforts? Seriously.

So apparently, my 4 or 5 year old cousin is talking to her dead great uncles, grandparents and aunts. She told her mother "Nana wants you to be with her", so they took the little girl to a medicine man. He told the mother if she doesn't encourage this kind of stuff, that the kid will lose her "powers".

Do you believe in children having a "special connection"?

Do crows really eat rabbits? (my aunt's neighbor says that the rabbit population in their area has exploded because a lot of crows have died...)

If you graduated from a 4 year college how much per month do you pay on your loans?

About how much debt were you/are you in? How many years will you be paying the loans back until you're finished?

What's the dumbest thing someone said to you recently?

I had this lady come into my deli and try and convince me that pomegranate and cherry are the same exact thing. She also apparently has a magic uterus since she told me she was both pregnant and PMSing in two different exchanges.

Two Questions... Sort Of

1. I have bad credit and I need 10Gs to pay for school. They screwed up my financial aid so I won't get my grants/scholarships until AFTER school starts. So I need to find a way for me to pay this now. Any private student loans I should look at? Ugh.

2. I've been with my man for 5 months. Love him to death. But his new job is quickly turning our relationship into a long distance one. We went from practically living with eachother the first three months, to now seeing eachother every Saturday. :-/ How do you deal with missing someone so much? He's not as expressive of his emotions/feelings as me so it gets really, really hard sometimes to deal with the distance. I guess patience and communication are key, eh?

Thanks =]

When the Zombie Apocalypse happens, will they be riding velociraptors?

If yes, will you be too overwhelmed with the sheer awesomeness to fight?

If no, what will the zombies be riding?

Because I'm a moron and can't figure anything out for myself, I ask you, internet...

My mother's best friend died on Saturday.  She wasn't sick; her passing was very unexpected.  She used to baby sit me when I was a kid, her husband is my dad's best friend, etc.  The families are very close.

Her viewing is tomorrow evening.  While I kind of want to go, I really don't know if I can go without completely losing my shit.  Same goes for the funeral.  I don't want to make a scene. 

Should I go and risk it?  Should I take a bunch of my anxiety medicine first?  Should I just skip it?

Will you post a funny video/macro to cheer me up a bit?

Is there a place my friend can watch So You Think You Can Dance? online? They don't show the full episode on fox.com and it wasn't on hulu. She's tech challenged so I can't link her to a bittorrent. I know there are a few other sites like hulu but I can't remember the names.

EDIT: Found! Thanks so much!

So. Some 19 year old guy moved in next door to my dad about a year ago and for the first 7 months or so he didn't put garbage out on garbage day once. He suddenly started up one week and has done it ever since.

Why the lack of garbage for months? Or what the heck was he doing with it?! I need answers!

 Will you tell me about your favorite teacher in highschool?

My German teacher Frau Stout was probably my favorite teacher friend-wise.  She was definitely ~*unique*~ and would wear German costumes a lot.  During Xmas she'd have a baking party at her house and students would sign up to go bake German cookies and she'd have us bring shoes for St Nickolaus Tag and leave presents in them.  She'd make us watch German movies without subtitles and she'd explain what was happening, but then got too involved in the plot and eventually forgot to tell us what was going on lol.  After the last German play we performed off campus (and after weeks of us begging) she took us to Jamba Juice (and paid!) instead of back to school.

damn squirrels

The squirrels in my backyard keep messing with our nashi /Asian pear tree. They gnaw on the growing pears and then just toss them on the ground to rot. What's a good way to get rid of these annoying critters without killing them myself?

Mayhaps a cat or dog?
