Guys, I need a change in my life.  I feel like I don't even know who I am anymore.  I'm not sure just a haircut is going to cut it.  What do you do when you need a change?

I am gonna get a haircut though.  I'm also thinking of dying it a reddish color. HALP PLZ?

you found an exact sculpture of yourself in a public park, though it was completely naked and had every detail about your physical body correct. would you want it taken down? oh, and everyone knows its you to.

i say no, because people would probobly go out of their way to avoid it!

Will you please tell me about a scar of yours? First-person perspective would be awesome, too, as in "So I was sitting here, formerly a piece of flat arm, when the woman whose head sits atop us began crying, dripping salty eyeliner filled tears onto our surface. She drug the blade across me as she wailed 'SATAN FOREVER SHALL I BE YOURS'..."

how much do you think a graphic designer for a small corporation would get paid?

i just got a job as one. the girl that did all the graphics stuff before quit today so i basically get her job since it's easier to find someone to answer the phones than to find someone who is good with photoshop. i didn't inquire about pay because i don't really give a shit if it increases, i just want the job. i make $8/hr right now. i dunno what she made.

ETA: I have a necklace with a pendant that is a pair of angel wings because i like angel wings and think they are pretty. now everyone assumes i am a devout christian and my necklace is some kind of guardian angel type thing. what the fuck is up with this?

What songs remind you of your childhood? How?

-Maggie May by Rod Stewart. My step-dad had his Rod Stewart cassette playing in the car when I was about 4. I heard Maggie May and fell in love with it. He let me keep the cassette and I played it in my own little player in my bedroom ALL THE TIME. Every time I hear that song I think about playing with my Barbies on my bedroom floor at the old house.

I have a head cold (just stuffed up nose/swollen sinuses) and I had to take an hour long plane trip. On the way up I felt okay, but as we began to descend my ears totally wouldn't pop, and it hurt so bad that I started crying and the flight attendants came to help out (gave me hot cloths to put below my ears and chewing gum). It relieved it enough so my eardrums didn't burst obv.

However, both ears still haven't popped and my nose is barely stuffed. It's still a mild, throbbing pain and I'm having trouble hearing (it feels like someone stuffed my ears with cotton).

Has this ever happened to you? What can I do to help my ears pop? Is it worth seeing a doctor about (and when)?

have you ever dated someone who worked third shift while you worked and went to school during normal hours? how did that work out for you? how often did you see your SO?

TQC, I just woke up from a nightmare.  It was the kind of dream that will probably stick with me all day and I'll never really forget.

Should I try to go back to sleep or should I take a nap later in the day when my brain isn't so focused on the nightmare?

My cat is sleeping upside down on a partially knocked over chair. Is this normal? IF you don't care, then have you ever eaten a done that have you burps or the illusion that You've eaten another food? I ate bread with olive oil and italian seasoning last night and I feel like I've eaten pizza.

Twice in the last week, one of my LJ icons has been replaced by an icon I've never seen before. Deleting and reuploading the old icon fixed the problem, but I was wondering has it happened to anyone else?

I need an "elective" type of plastic surgery. It's considered plastic but it's to correct an incredibly painful physical problem. It costs anywhere from $5000, to $9400 for this surgery even though its outpatient and will take MAYBE 20 minutes. Anyway, I'm a student who doesn't really make much a year, probably about $8,000 a year at best working my campus job. I have no problem putting about $4000 down then paying the rest off. I'm having trouble deciding if a loan would be worth it. I need to get the issue corrected, it's really important but paying something off monthly scares me.

TQC, if you were in my position, would you get the surgery?

I really, really want that dress.

Let's say that there was an article of clothing that you wanted, and it was available through an online vendor. They are the only place that has this item, and it's only left in a size way too small for you and one way too big. Do you:

A.) order the item in its larger size and later get it altered,
B.) try to forget about it, or
C.) find as many pictures of the item as possible, and try to find someone who would be able to custom-make a version of it for you?

If you watch Gossip Girl, who do you think is the best-dressed character on the show? I may dislike Blair, but her clothes are amazing sometimes.

I hate college sports- with a passion. I see them as coddling a bunch of meat head athletes that have been held by the hand so that alumni and other brain dead people can feel good about their school. Now that college football has begun again, we can sit back and pretend that student-athletes are really there to learn first, and play second, when we really know that they are only there because the NFL teams won't sign them any earlier.  Am I right,  or am I just a bitter non-athlete? y/y?

For everyone else, do you have a TV in your room?  Why or why not?

Money changes everything

Given the choice, would you rather have $30,000 in one lump sum right now, or $3,000 a year for the next 20 years?

Getting to know you. How much debt are you in right now?

Under $1,000

$15,001 - $25,000
$25,001 - $50,000
$50,001 - $100,000
Over $100,000

Let's say a rich person came up to you and layed down wagers for double or nothing of your debt in a single game of 'high card wins' (each person draws a card and the higher card wins). You could erase your debt entirely, or double it. What would you do?

2) When you're moving, how do you pack your clothes hangers (without the clothes on them)?

(I'm moving on monday, and these things have been nothing but a nuisance for me. I can't figure out how to pack them in an efficient/organized manner)

Doctor Who question

Ladies of TQC, do you get super emotional during/before your period? If so, how do you cope with that?

Everyone, what kind of birthday cake should I get this year?

Also, do you watch Coupling? (the UK version)


Is there a nice way to tell my mom, "No, you cannot call me on my cell phone from another continent because I am impoverished, and I don't want to talk to you on the phone anyway because if I hear your voice I will have an emotional breakdown of homesickness"?

I've already told her it's really expensive to call me on my cell phone (I have no idea how expensive but I don't want to know) and that she should get Skype, which for some reason she refuses to download. She really wants to talk to me but I don't think I could deal with it. She has no idea how much I've been not enjoying my experience abroad and I want to keep up the illusion that I am doing all right. But at least if we just talked over Skype I could occupy myself with other things on the computer while I talked to her.

I know it would be a great way to meet new people and all that shit, but I have horrible anxiety in such situations as being by myself at a party or whatever.

Wedding Officiant/Justice of the Peace in Woodbury MN?


I'm looking to book a wedding officiant in Woodbury, MN for next summer, but I don't really know where to begin looking. The cheaper the better, really, since it will be a formality anyhow, as we'll already have done the actual legal wedding proceedings prior to the wedding ceremony. I am considering trying to get a justice of the peace from the county to come out to the wedding site but am unsure if they offer that just yet. So I basically need a place to start looking for someone to conduct a nondenominational ceremony.

Thanks in advance for any help.

You gotta do something with a bum, or else, you go to jail (the law works in mysterious ways in this Bizarro world). The prison sentence is for 2 months. The homeless people are not completely filthy, but they are pretty darn dirty and they stink. Which of these activities would you choose to do?

Make out with a homeless person (either gender) or 5 minutes. If they want tongue, you have to oblige
Give a homeless person oral (either gender). Your mouth + their genitals for 5 minutes
Wear homeless man tightie-whities over your naked bottom. Straight from their crotch to yours, and you must wear them for a half hour

I came home from dinner   a lot of beer drinking with friends most of the late afternoon into evening ,  to find that my cats have knocked over a large glass bottle of olive oil on the ceramic tile.  I was able to sop up most of the exces oil but I can't seem to get the oil off the tile.
Any suggestions on cleaning up olive oil spill on ceramic tile? I have used vinegar and water but that is not breaking up the oil, do you think sprinkling baking soda might help absorb  this mess?
