TQC, this (huge picture) is currently on my ceiling. It's about the size of a quarter and my kitten is going batshit trying to eat it. I'm scared if I try to kill it I'll miss and it'll retaliate while I'm sleeping.

We bought a house two weeks ago. I just found a (live) baby mouse right next to my chinchilla's cage. What the fuck do I do? I can not kill it. Right now it's on a heating pad and I'm feeding it baby formula.

Any idea how old this thing is? Everything online seems to be talking about pinkies...so since it has hair and its eyes are open, can it live on its own? Should I put it outside? It's about 50 degrees at night now, maybe colder. I don't want it to die but mouse infestation is not common in Minnesota and I just don't know what to do. I also don't really want to keep it, unless it can live with my chinchilla.

Ok so obviously I can't form a cohesive question, but someone just tell me what to do.



OH MY GOD ANOTHER ONE JUST CRAWLED BY MY FOOT. WHAT HTE FUCK TQC!!!!

I have terrible road rage. Its so bad I dread getting behind the wheel. I learned how to drive in the country, 80mph down scary back roads dodging moose and dear, so driving in the STOP and GO and STOP and GO city with buses and traffic makes me crazy. All the people who just walk in front of your car like they have a death wish...sigh. So that's what makes me rage.

1. What makes you rage?

2. Should the NKOTB rename themselves? If so, what?

3. If you and I were elephants and you wanted to date me, how would you ask me out and what would we do?

G'morning, TQC. I'm sick. Not like pneumonia ill, but I'm definetely taking today off. My question is: What can I do all day so as not to lose my mind with boredom, but that also doesn't require too much brain power? I have homework and reading to do anyway, but I'd like to do something other than play on LJ all day. I would take a walk down to the coffee shop, but it's a good twenty minute walk and I don't want to get there and be too exhausted to walk back.

Did you know that you are quite probably infected with a parasite, that if you are a woman, makes you into a total 'sexkitten', andif you are a man makes makes you 'stupider'?

This same parasite totally likes boys more than girls too, if you get is while pregnant it'll increase your chance of having a boy baby. (It will also increase the chance of the baby having mental retardation, no biggie though.)

I went to the ER yesterday with a severe allergic reaction to...I don't even know what. Lobster I think. I was covered head to toe in HUGE hives. They gave me prednisone and instructed me to keep taking benadryl.

I haven't taken the benadryl because it just makes me way too tired. Tonight is beginning of the Oyster Festival (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Norwalk_Oyster_Festival) and I want to go and have a few beers.

So, is it safe to drink while taking prednisone?

If you don't know/care, what are you allergic to?

So, I'm an officer for Sigma Tau Delta (the well-named English honorary society) for a small university, and was trying to think of random events that we could do.  Last year we had a "literary feast" (people made food mentioned in/inspired by a book) and word game nights (scattergories, etc.).  This semester, we're planning on carpooling to go to readings at nearby bookstores and getting a group together that's going to do NaNoWriMo.

So, what events/activities can you think of that would be fun for a group of nerdy English majors?

So today in my Spanish II class, we have a new student from Malaysia who doesn't speak very good english. The teacher calls her up to her desk to get her arranged for class and stuff. She opens her mouth and speaks and that catches the attention of this irritating little girl that sits next to me in that class.
Because of her unusual accent she asks her: "Hey, where do you come from?"
The Malaysian girl doesn't say anything or even look at her, but it wasn't in a rude way at all, she just didn't hear her apparently.
The girl who asked her the question goes: "I can't believe she ignored me!"
Another girl asks her and does grab her attention and tells her.
This proceeds the other girl to go: "I don't like her, she ignored me but talked to you."


How would you react/think if you were a witness to this?

8 legs of insomnia

It's a busy week for you. You have a friend staying over and sleeping on your couch (maybe more than one friend. Just picture all your couches and extra beds are filled), and you have a really important meeting/presentation at work/school the next day. It's important you rest up. You're in your room, getting ready for bed, when you notice a large spider on your pillow. It's the size of a peanut butter cup. After you panic a little, you look around for implements to catch or destroy it, and when you return your eyes back to the pillow, it's gone! If you poke around a little, you don't find it anywhere on, under or behind the bed. You really need to sleep, but there's a massive spider unaccounted for, and you don't have another place to doze. What do you do?

I was e-mailing my cover letter and resume to my alma mater for a clerical type position and had already attached them when I went to look at the letter for something else, and realized I had forgotten to tweak the letter from the last time I used it, I generally use the same basic letter or resume and just tweak it for the specific job.-the last paragraph was about how I would be a good employee for ______. Usually I read through the letter when I do it to make sure I change the place I'm applying to but I had been tired then, thank god I caught it before I sent it.

So, this brings me to my question. While applying for a job what is the stupidest or silliest mistake you've made? If it applies, as an employee who hires/interviews people what is the stupidest or silliest thing you've seen?

Little House on the Prairie.

So I was telling my friends about how my grandfather grew up down the road from Laura Ingalls Wilder and her husband and daughter, and my great-uncle was their houseboy who got to burn manuscripts. (no lie, true story.)
Then one of them says "I'm sure this would be much more exciting if I knew who this lady was."
I couldn't believe that she didn't know, and then when I said she was the lady who wrote Little House on the Prairie, my friends both say "Never watched it."
They didn't know it was a book series, and these are two 19-year-old girls.

So my question:
Have you read the Little House books?
Would you be surprised if someone didn't know who Laura Ingalls Wilder was?

My brother was talking to a girl online for a few hours. Everything was cool, they lived near each other and planned on going to get coffee later on. Until, before planning where to meet, she asked for a pic and he obliged.
After this, it just went quiet. No responses or anything from her after she got the pic.
Now I have never met a person on the internet for any sort of romantic interests/friendships, so I have no Idea what the standards are for this. They were meeting as platonic friends up until this point, so I would assume looks shouldn't matter too much.
Anyway,

1. Has this same thing happened to you?

2. do you photograph poorly? like, if someone saw a picture of you, would they be bummed compared to if they met you in real life?

3. How much do looks/weight of dates/friends matter to you? Would you date someone less attractive to you if they had everything else you wanted?

And completely unrelated :

3. Does anyone remember a computer game from the 80s/early 90s that involved being on the moon and using the spacebar to jump over craters? It was for the really old Apple computers, where everything was green and/or black. I can't for the life of me remember what this game was called - does anyone else?

this year, the last year of my media course my coursework i have to do is film promotion. this means i have to re-release a real film that is on DVD for some reason ( directors cut, additional features or anniversary date ) and promote this film using posters, banners, flyers, 2 minute radio advertisement, website & any other ideas for advertisement. all the photos i use have to be taken myself & directed myself, so i have to use friends as the actors for the DVD cover/back, posters, etc.

this brings me to my question!
if you were doing this, what film would you do? and what would be the reason for re-release? and why?

( this is nothing like last years where all i had to produce was a magazine front cover, double page spread & 4 written appendixes )

I'm a high school junior, and so far my cumulative GPA from Freshman and Sophomore years (unweighted) is 3.5. Weighted, it's 4.1.

I'm freaking out about this because I think it's too low. This is because of my silly parents, though.

What, to you, is an ideal GPA for a student looking to go to a (somewhat) competitive school?

Did your parents pressure you to get a good GPA or take extremely hard classes when you were in high school?

I feel for the pressure and got one of those yourmanga avatars. Do you think mine looks like a boy or a girl?

Recently there was a mistake in an apple pie recipe in a Swedish Food magazine instead of a pinch of grated nutmeg it called for 20 grated nutmegs. At least one person followed the recipe then served it to guests and 4 people ended up at the hospital from nutmeg poisoning. Now I'm no cooking expert myself but I known for a long time that nutmeg should be enjoyed in small quantities. I also know that to much nutmeg at once is pretty vile.

How clueless would you have to be to grate 20 nutmegs for an apple pie and never question things like why nutmeg are sold in such small packages for one thing? Being interested enough in cooking to get a magazine on the subject but not knowing that too much nutmeg is bad for you?

How extremely polite would you have to be to eat enough of an apple pie containing that much nutmeg to get sick? It must tasted horrendous! I mean I'm all for eating up what you are offered even if it's not as tasty that you hoped when you put it on your plate but there must be some limit for that, right?

I've been doing research about my college town. Now, I have close to none knowledne of architecture and differences between time periods. This particular town's architecture is described as baroque, and in all types of photos people show Secession details. I realize (Wikipedia!) that is should be the 1897 secession that led to the Austrian branch of Art Nouveau. What the hell? I have enough understanding of baroque that I know it looks kind of.. lavish, but I am unable to distinguish the Seccesion period details. Do baroque and seccesion have anything in common? How is seccession characterized? Anything at all to help me make a connection, see the differences and understand it all? Wikipedia just keeps confusing me. :p

Any experts out there?

A Wonderful Landmark May Bite The Dust

Did you know that developers are planning to turn Coney Island's Astroland into a New York City version of the Mall Of America

Did you know that tomorrow may be Astroland's last day.

Have you ever been to Coney Island? If you have, please write about it or post a picture.

Will you miss Astroland?

Will you call 212-639-9675 and ask the operator to send a message to the mayor that he should help to save Astroland?

Stealing my daughter clothes

My daughter wont wear the lovely Jane Norman dress I bought her for school because the skirt is grey tartan. The school colours are black and white, yes I have explained that grey is what you get when you mix black and white. I've even warned her I will steal it if she doesn't wear it. Bearing in mind she picked the dress and begged and pleaded with me to get it for her. Still this poor, lovely dress is hanging forlorn and forgotten in her wardrobe. Oh, and it JUST happens to be my size! :D

Cooooooool....

For years, we've been ordering pizza online from "Grandpa Johnathan's".

Today, we ordered via "Falling Blocks", which has a device where you can track your order online.

This is awesome, y/y?

Why didn't I find this out sooner?

Our delivery driver's name is Teddy. How psycho would it be to open the door and be all "Hey, Teddy!"

(no subject)

One of my neighbors keeps hitting on me and it makes me very uncomfortable. I've tried being unfriendly. I've tried ignoring him. I've tried being subtle. I've tried being dirrect. But he won't stop. He always tries to talk to me through his window when I go outside, or he sits around the entrance of the complex.
What can I do to get him to stop?

2000-word memoir

I have to write a 2000-word memoir for a contest. I'm used to writing fiction and poetry and rarely write true, memoir-ish stuff so I am clueless about what to write. Can you make some suggestions about what to write about?
