My friend texted me today, telling me that he just saw Danny Bonaduce. I wasn't sure how to respond. I like Danny, but I don't know if it's such a big thing that he's seen. What should I have responded with?

Nice. Say hi for me
Get his autograph for me
I dare you to kick him in the balls and run
Try and get him to do shots with you

You get a text from your friend, who was in line behind Christian Bale at Jamba Juice, and met him. What's your response?

You lucky fucking cunt. How dare you rub it in my face?
Quick! Make a clown impression and see if he attacks you like he did his mum

A couple of days ago I posted here asking what I should do for my birthday on Monday. Turns out, I have no choice in the matter and my boyfriend has planned out the entire day for me, but won't tell me what it is. So TQC, what does my boyfriend have planned? If you make me laugh, you win a cookie.

#2. You know that lady's voice you always hear when you get the voice mails (at least in the United States it seems to be the same lady for most cell phone voice mails). She says something like "_____ is not available, please leave a message." If you ran into that woman in real life and heard her talk, do you think you'd recognize her voice and immediately be able to say "that's the woman from the voice mail". Or do you think you'd be stuck trying to figure out where you recognize her voice from for the next 6 months?

TCM Movie Classics

For those of you who like movies, I'm wondering: if you ever watch TCM or the "Classic Channel" regularly, then how many times does the theme of some schmuck looking for a wad of money for some scandalous purpose seem to come up? I swear it's like in almost every movie they air except maybe sci-fi and horror genres. Have you noticed this too?

Any teachers?

I would like to teach, but it's not the only thing I would enjoy. What's better? Major in a subject you really love (biology), and then you can fall back on  teaching if you can't find an ideal job in the field. OR. Major in education, and just become a teacher, and you can teach whatever subject you feel like teaching?

Also, WTF can I do with a bachelor's in biology? Srsly. Science tracks, don't you have to just totally go all out and get a doctorate to accomplish anything?

Sooo, my wife and I decided to take a trip to Boston. We're 4 hours away by car, so we'll either drive there or take the $15 a ticket chinese bus. Anyway, here are the questions!

1) Assuming we drive, how's the situation with parking in Boston? We're from NY(C), it's difficult to find parking in manhattan, but not impossible. Also, even though most streets have meters, some don't and you can park for free for as long as you like (except on cleaning days). Is it possible to avoid meters and paid lots in Boston? Is it difficult to find metered/unmetered parking?

2) We're thinking of getting citypass ( Is it worth it?

3) Besides the places in citypass, what are some other places we should visit? What did/do you like best about Boston? Not just attractions, whatever comes to mind.

4) Any inexpensive hotel recommendations not far from the city?

5) How's public transportation in/around Boston?

 All righty TQC, I need some help.

My boss keeps calling me, asking if I want to come in to work.

[[I work at McDonalds of all the unholy places on earth.]] 

I've worked everyday this week, and on two of my day's off.  I'm sick of coming in for them, but I know that I have to sometimes, just because they need people.  Right now, I just want my fucking day off.  Seriously, please?  Anyway, I'm wondering if the next time they call I should just lie and tell them I'm seriously busy I have stuff going on, or if I should just go in anyway.  yes, it's money, but... i'm getting annoyed.  They pressure you into coming in and I'M SO OVER IT!! I don't WANT to come in any more.  

So...what should I do?

Mmkay, so I am scared shitless. I have to be in court in an hour and a half for driving on a suspended license.

I am annoyed by the smallest sounds, particularly when I'm trying to concentrate. If someone is clipping their nails across the room while I'm trying to work, I get super frustrated. While many people may be able to tune these sounds out, I just get more and more steamed. Today, it's someone constantly swishing a bag; tomorrow it will be someone eating sunflower seeds (who knows). Turning up my music louder will give me the same headache I get from absorbing these sounds. I've tried the old, "just tune them out"...yeah, didn't work. Do you have any suggestions?

My best friend happens to have cerebral palsy. I don't think her case is that bad - I've heard of people with CP who need canes/walkers to walk. My friend has some minor problems, but I've never seen her not be able to do something the rest of us can do. Anyway, she's 7 1/2 months pregnant, happily married, wonderful, beautiful. Yesterday a woman we work with told me she'd heard someone refer to my best friend as a "mongloid." Saying "the mongloid that works in the office is pregnant, too." (if I am not mistaken, isn't that the completely ignorant thing that people say about someone with downs' syndrome? Which is clearly not what she has, and even if it was, that's so ignorant!). She didn't know who said it, but I told her to try to find out for me (there's about four hundred people where we work, so it's hard to know everyone's names).

If she finds out who it was, should I confront this person? What should I say to them?

(also, best friend has worked at this place for 4+ years - has been there since before it opened. Has proved that she is smart - she runs our accounting office, which tells you she must be pretty smart - and has never done anything to merit people being mean to her).

Assuming you are pretty well-stocked with staples (pasta, sauces, rice, other pantry stuff, etc), how much would you project it to cost for groceries for one average person (mostly meat and produce, but also perishable stuff like milk, cheese, eggs, yogurt, bread, etc) per week or per month?

What about if you add to the one average person another larger-than-average person (a big strong boy)?

which is less rude?

The owner of my company is blind, and has been since shortly after his first Brooklyn Dodgers game (according to his official bio, anyway).
I walk past his office frequently to get to mine. If he is next to his assistant's desk talking to her, is it less rude just to walk by without saying hello (when he knows that someone is walking by) or interrupt his conversation to engage him?
I am inclined to say the former, but I am curious about your take.


ETA: I totally agree that it is entirely rude to interrupt, it just feels ruder and ruder to me each time that I walk by and it is apparent to me that he knows someone was there.

Any artists in here who do commission work?

What I'm looking for specifically is a custom tattoo design -- rough concept is a graffiti-style rat, though done mostly realistically rather than anthropomorphic. Coloured if possible but can work with B&W. It will be a cover-up for an existing tattoo, so that needs to be taken into account with the design. I have several example pictures that demonstrate both the style I want, and one with a positioning that will work well over the top of the tattoo currently there.

Alternately, can anyone suggest a good place to find someone who'd be good for this sort of job?

Edit: I know tattoo artists do this as well. I'd still like to get a design put together so I can decide if it is something I want to go through with, and so I know the tattoo artist has a good idea of what I'm after. The artist also isn't someone I can just pop down casually to see.

1. In the way of appearance, who do you find beautiful?

I don't mean hot, sexy, cute or even handsome. But beautiful in the classical way that if she/he lived in another time she/he would be the subject of a Renaissance painting or the Muse of an ancient Greek sculptor.

2. On a related note, can you be sexy without being necessarily good looking?

If "yes", who do you feel fits this mold?

3. Can you be beautiful without being sexy?

Again, if "yes", who do you feel fits this mold?

So I want to go to the movies tonight at a theatre that is about half an hour away but I'm not sure if my parents would be okay with me going since it's downtown. I live in the suburbs of the city and my parents are overly protective of me. (I'm 18 and still have to ask to go out places wtf?) Should I give it a shot at asking them to go first? or should I just tell them I'm going to the movies and let them assume which movie theatre I'm going to?

The nuclear holocaust is coming. In preparation, an underground shelter has been built. The shelter will be able to house and hold enough food for 200,000 people, in a ratio of 10 women:1 man. After the human population aboveground is obliterated, the ones living below will repopulate the earth. Unfortunately, the builders of the shelter forgot to check for rats. As the first bombs are dropped, scientists realize with horror that the rodents left only enough food for one man and his ten wives. Who is the new father of the human race?

I have a bit of a problem. I work at a boutique and my boss often calls in to see how we are doing in sales. We often have the awkward silences and I almost dread having her call because this is how our conversations usually go:

Me: Hello, *store name*
Boss: Hi! How's it going over there?
Me: Oh, pretty good/bad. We are at *amount*.
Boss: Oh, that's good/bad/whatever.
Boss: Okay well...we will talk to you later.
Me: Okay. Bye!

So my question is, how do I get out of the awkward phone silence. What do I do?

Also, I often work by myself so I can't just get someone else to answer the phone. I cannot ignore the phone or my boss will worry.

 To elaborate on a question  xhaiiro asked earlier;

a) if  you find walking in high heels fairly easy (e.g. can battle lions in them) how did you get that point? Did you start off as a wobbly, slow mess? ("Guys, walk slower, I'm in heels!" is something I have to yell fairly often.)

b) Besides practice, practice, practice, do you know of any tips or advice for those learning to walk in heels?

c) I can stick three fingers between my foot and the shoe in a lot of heels; do you know of any brands that offer arch support? Know of any good inserts?

I found a pair of four-inch black suede, round-toed wedges with a small bow that I have affectionately titled my "Training Heels".

Batman 3 is in theatres, and you and your friends managed to get tickets to the very first show. It's such an important event, that at the very first show, Christian Bale and Johnny Depp (as the Riddler) and Zooey Deschanel (filling in for Maggie Gyllenhaal, as the role seems to be played by a new chick every movie) are going to be there in person to greet every person who attends this first show. It's a once in a lifetime experience, and you're excited. There's also a prize given to the first 1,000 people in line, that can't be purchased in stores. It's special. As you're waiting in line, excited, you get tapped on the shoulder "Hey, I'll give you $500 for your ticket", says one guy in a Batman mask. Do you sell your ticket?


There's another premiere happening in your city. It's a musical that features Keanu Reeves singing his heart out, Carrot Top and Larry the Cable Guy playing rappers, Jessica Simpson playing a brilliant scientist who puts some of Stephen Hawking's words to music, and the whole thing is narrated by Bobcat Goldthwait. And those that attend the first show will be forced to meet the stars. You're walking by the line, and someone says "Hey, if I give you $20, will you take my place in line? I really don't want to see this, but I'm a movie critic and I have to report on this horrible film. What I do normally is I watch the movie, and record the film on this audio device so I can review it later. But I figure that if you tape it for me, I can skip the viewing entirely and just listen to the awful crap instead. Will you do this for me? Also, I'm afraid after the movie, I might actually lunge and attack one of the stars". Do you do this thing for him and earn $20?


Edit: I haven't seen Batman 2 yet, so I didn't know that Maggie's character is dead. Well, Zooey plays his new love interest

little big town - trying to find a place

(no subject)

I don't drive/don't have a car. One of my roommates does have a car. All three of us work at the same place. The one who OWNS the car has the exact same schedule as me. Work is 1 mile away, so figure I am in the car 1 mile, twice a day, five days a week, times four weeks in a month. So, I'm in the car forty miles a month, but divide that by two because figure roommate should pay to get there two, since she's going to work (they aren't having to go drop me somewhere else at work - we're going ot the same place). And then I'd figure in the fact that there are a LOT of afternoons that I stay late so I have to find another ride home, or I've walked a couple of times.

So, my question: should I have to pay not only gas money (I've been giving them $20-40 a month, which now that I think about how little I'm in that car, I'm about to drop it down to $5 a month), but one third of the insurance as well? (one third of the insurance would be about $35 a month).

regarding the national debt

For the sake of beating a dead horse, what's your serious and non-serious opinion of Richard W. Fisher's words?

He's the Dallas Federal Reserve President, and he said:

Add together the unfunded liabilities from Medicare and Social Security, and it comes to $99.2 trillion over the infinite horizon.

How much would we have to pay if we split the tab? Again, the math is painful. With a total population of 304 million, from infants to the elderly, the per-person payment to the federal treasury would come to $330,000. This comes to $1.3 million per family of four—over 25 times the average household’s income.

Advantage for dogs dosage

I bought some Advantage today from the vet closest to me, not the one that I usually see. I think the receptionist was less than thorough in her knowledge of the product, and often gave instructions with words like "I think" and "I guess" as modifiers. :( They didn't have anyone more informed on staff at the time either.

The product comes in three dose sizes, the largest being for dogs 55 pounds and over. If my dog is 150 lbs., does he still really only need the one dose? The company's website does not seem to help, nor does my googling. Any vet techs or large dog people here know the answer?

My friends want to go out tonight, and they want to go to the same stinky, smoky, crowded, shithole bar they always want to go to.  I really, really, REALLY don't want to go there, and would like to go to the slightly pricer, not stinky smoky crowded shithole instead.  We ALWAYS go to their bar, we NEVER go to the one I want to go to. 

Am I a brat for saying "I'd like to go out tonight, but I don't want to go if we're going to [smoky shithole]?"

What's your favorite Friday night drink?

dumbass HTML/coding question but I've googled it with no luck. Anyone know how to make 'sticky' entries on LJ? I'm sure I've seen it done, i.e, with an entry staying at the top all the time? hnngh.

and hey will you post some pictures of celebrities YOU think are attractive? :K and can you just link the URL if the picture is huge.

torrent speeds

Downloading from a torrent site.
How is it that with 7578 seeds and 5514 leeches I'm connected to exactly 0?

I know it's not a problem with my connection because when I download from a private tracker (where everyone has to keep a ratio of at least 1:1) I often get speeds of 2MB(yes, megabYtes) per second. The downloads start almost right away, etc.

But it can't be that out of ~13,000 people no one is uploading at at least 1kbps. So, what gives?

Also, I don't think it's the case with this specific torrent site, it's a popular one and I've been on other popular ones with approximately the same results...

Do you currently or have you ever lived alone? Was it fun, thrilling, lonely, boring, or what? Tell me about it.

I'm moving out to live by myself for the first time, to my very own apartment, in 2 weeks. I'm excited and nervous.

Do you support/follow any bands local to your area? Could you share some band names? How did you discover them?

There's only two so far that I've found in my area that I really like. Jason Webley and The Bad Things. (Have you heard of them?) I saw The Bad Things for the first time at the Northwest Folklife Festival and a friend told me about Jason Webley.

You know how around Christmas some TV stations just broadcast continuous footage of a log burning in the fireplace? Well, what if they dedicated a channel to playing footage of a chicken or meatloaf slow-cooking in the oven? Do you think North Americans will tune in to watch fat sizzle?

Would you? If you were really hungry?

Chick Flicks

I'm bored, but strangely in a sappy mood.
I want to rent a chick flick, but I'd like to rent something I haven't seen or have not seen in a long time...(Mean Girls is totally not an option I watch it way too much as it is).

My questions:
1. What your favorite chick flick?
2. Why is it your favorite?
3. Could you describe just a little of it in a sentence?

I'm trying to figure out how to dye my hair using some black henna my mom has (she bought it at a Ren instructions). So far Google has been less than helpful.
Can you give me directions, or a link?
Have you ever tried to dye your hair black with henna? How did it turn out?

This is driving me nuts. Out of nowhere this old commercial (I think) jingle popped into my head, but I can't remember what it's for. I don't remember the first part, but the second was "You've got something special."

Does anyone know the first part?

I have a really good idea for my halloween costume this year in terms of how interesting it will be to sew. But I'm moving to a new city where I don't know anyone at the end of this month, and I feel like it's slightly presumptuous to assume that I'll have anywhere to wear said costume.

Should I go through the trouble of making it anyway?

Would it be totally lame to just sit in my costume at home as long as I enjoyed making it?

What are your potential ideas for costumes so far this year?

Think locally, fuck globally.

1. Do you know of any Mexican punk bands and a place where I could download some of their music? I have googled for Mexican punks but can't seem to find downloads for the bands that come up...
2. Do you enjoy making mix tapes for unlikely people? If yes, why?
3. Have you ever had friends that didn't speak the same language as you?

I'm making a mix for one of the line cooks at work 'cause he's super shy and I want to be his friend even though I don't speak Spanish and he doesn't speak English. :P

hi question clubbererers,
My boyfriend, best friend, her boyfriend and I are going to be staying in Melbourne (Victoria, Australia) for 4 nights in celebration of the end of Year 12. 
We have booked a pretty awesome apartment (bedrooms with queen beds, kitchen, dvd and cd player etc) and are going to chill there and do things in the city. Does anyone have any good ideas for 
i) Some not-too-expensive things for us to do in the city (that does not involve clubbing as the only one old enough is my boyfriend)?
ii) Fun stuff for us to do in the apartment like..we were thinking of cooking a nice fancy meal..scrabble+drinking = hilarity...anyone got any good party-type games/ideas or anything?

We are also going to be going to stay in Geelong for a couple of nights, anyone know of anything amazing there that we should do or see?

Stupid question (but at least I can admit it)

OK, so I know, "what should I wear?" questions suck, I know that.  But for reasons too complicated to go into now, I can't ask my best friend's advice on this one.

OK, so tomorrow, I'm going on a date.  We're going bowling, probably disco bowling (black lights + music = disco, apparently)  I have one dress I look awesome in, but it MIGHT be a little bit short when I bend over to throw the ball.  Also, cute little dresses look sort of funny with socks and bowling shoes.  Alternately, I can wear jeans and a t-shirt that I know look cool under the black light.  The benefit of this is that I know I don't really have to work to impress this guy, as I know he's into me either way, but on the other hand, I want to look hot.

So should I dress down and avoid a potentially embarrassing situation, or go for the gold and risk flashing him a bit? (Or, should I be REALLY daring and wear the slightly longer, but white- and so see through under black lights- dress that I got the other day?)

And, to prepare me if I DO make the wrong decision, can you please regale me with stories of embarrassing dates or clothing malfunctions?
