I'm going shopping for pants tomorrow since I lost weight and no longer fit in my old pants.

When was the last time you had to buy new clothes because you changed size?
Were you happy about this?
Should I get a new belt too, seeing as my belts are too big?
What about shirts? I have quite a collection and they still fit, but should I just go for it?
Where do YOU like to buy pants?

A. How often would you say you and your SO have a massive earth shattering cataclysmic type fight?

B. Are you the type that storms off once the fight (any fight really, doesn't have to be a huge blow out really) is over or reaches a certain point or do you sit around and stew and not say anything for the rest of the night?

C. Do you adhere to the "don't go to bed angry" philosophy?

D. Do you still have make up sex? Did you ever? At what point in the relationship did you stop having it if at some point you did?

Moral dilemma! Halp, TQC!

It's been storming all day, and so I went to take a shower a bit ago and my roommate and suitemate had hung some very damp clothes up over the shower bar. So I took them down, just for the 10 minutes I'd be in the shower. As I'm reaching for my suitemate's jeans to move them to the countertop, I feel a bulge in the pocket. These jeans are upside down and I know this is her phone, it's poking out, so I slip it out and put it in a safer place on the windowledge in the bathroom, because jeans hanging upside down in a shower with a phone hanging out of the pocket? Something bad is going to happen, and we're close enough friends that I'd trust her to do the same with my phone. As I'm putting the phone on the sill, however, I notice that it's a bit damp. I slide it open to see if it's all right, and the keypad lights up and such - but the screen gives a pathetic flash of light and dims, and won't come back on. Well, fuck. This isn't going to look good for me. So I tried to dry it off as best I could, as it's clear the rain got to it somehow (or my other suitemate's shower before mine, if she hadn't moved the jeans to take hers), and put it back in her jeans after I get out of the shower and am totally dry myself. 

Do I tell her what happened or just put the phone back in her jeans and hope she doesn't make a connection and try to accuse me?

Have you ever ripped off a fingernail or toenail?
A toenail.
How did it happen?
When I was five I was walking on pavement with no shoes.
Did it grow back normally or is it all weird?
It grew back all thick.

Have you ever had a finger or toe accidentally chopped off?

How did it happen?

Could they reattach it?

If so, how noticeable is the fact that it was once separated from your body?

Let's play a game.

I like to call it who's who, and you play by answering the previous question then ask one for the next person to answer. let's see how long this will go.

First question: What's your occupation?

I hate banks. A lot.

So my ATM card's been acting weird, and I just figured out why.

A couple weeks ago, I deposited a largeish check at the ATM. A hold was placed on it, blah dee blah, I really didn't think much of it. That is, until I went in and saw about five $40 overdraft fees. They overdrafted me, even though the money was SITTING there, because of the stupid hold, and now I have no money.

Is there ANY chance of me having any luck if I go in and argue this with the bank? I really need that cash.

I'm feeling like a lonely 13 year old girl right now. I have surgery in the morning and my boyfriend hasn't called to give me the thumbs up that he will only say the kindest words and he won't throw in "that one time.." during my eulogy. Random internet strangers, give me some pre-op "You can do it, Champ!" Please? Goddamnit I forgot that has to be a question.

Also, I have just signed a contract to write porn reviews. They ask if I want to use a pen name. Should I?

Care Packages for Canadian Soldiers

All right, so this may be too weird for you here at tqc so you can skip this one if you don't want to see it.

But to those of you who are in the Army or have known people who were in the Army, could you tell me how to send a care package to Afganistan and/or Iraq? I would like to send someone, male or female, at least a few pairs of socks and cookies which don't melt.

I have read that you cannot send it to the base without a name on it. I know there is a list of American soldiers, but is there a list of Canadian soldiers? I don't want to send it to some general, they can go sit down as far as I'm concerned.

So, can anyone help me out with this? Anybody know anybody who's serving in Afganistan or Iraq?

Bonus: if you know any Romanians serving in Iraq, that would be good too, because I would then make a third package sometime in the future. :D

(no, I'm not Republican, pls no flaming)


So I am moving and have 119 checks with my old address on them. TQC, if this were you, would you just void/trash those checks and order new ones with your new address, or would you cross out the old address and write in the new one on each check and use them all up?

PS: You can't buy those tiny address labels and tack them onto your checks, right? For some reason I feel as though that voids the check, like putting tape over stamps.

Sooo...Obama and McCain fail to qualify for the Texas ballot! They missed the state's deadline to file.

According to the Libertarian party's news page, anyway. This is exceedingly interesting but I cannot find any other sources on it (except a few lonely blogs here and there). CNN does not have it, WSJ, etc.

Is it a farce? Has anyone else heard of this? What is going on in Texas? Someone mentioned the Democratic and Republican candidates are back on the ballot anyway (illegally I guess). So what on earth is going on?

Minor cat injury

I awoke this morning to my cat walking all over me as usual, and I thought I caught a glimpse of red under his chin. Upon further inspection, he has some blood under his chin in two spots. I live with two cats and they do have little fights but they never use serious claws or bites, it's usually pretty friendly. It looks pretty minor but I wanted to ask if there's anything I can clean it with or put on it to prevent infection or speed up healing? Is peroxide okay to clean it with? I don't want to go to the vet for such a small thing and google isn't helping me out. Thanks!

Would you do business with a company that had ties to the Nazis, the Taliban, the Khmer Rouge, U.S. slaveowners, etc?

This comes up because a number of companies are bidding to have their name put on Giants-Jets Stadium in NJ. One of these is an insurance company called Allianz that supposedly sold insurance for the Nazi death camps at Auschwitz. They also stole life insurance money from Jews and gave it to the Nazis.

Other examples are banks like Bank of America and Chase that financed slavery in America.

So coming up in November I am in charge of my little sister's bachelorette party. I plan on fully embarrassing her... we'll probably not be going out anywhere as she's under 21, so we'll probably stay in the house. I have almost everything already planned or in the process of it, except one problem...


I want funny food. Embarrassing food. A penis cake would be ideal, but my sister has Celiac and I wouldn't trust myself or anyone in the area to make a safe penis cake for her. With the gluten being a problem, this actually cuts out a LOT of my snack ideas.

TQC, what are some funny perverted food ideas you can give me? Should I cut vegges into penis shapes? What can I make into boobies (oh yeah, she can't have jello... I think that's unrelated to the Celiac, she just hates jello)

I don't know a lot about the process of school loans. I'm currently going to a community collegeand my tuition for this semester has already been paid. However, I need a computer for the majority of my classes. Our family computer is not dependable, it needs fixing all the time. Right now we have no idea what is wrong with it. When I need to do homework on a computer (a lot of it is internet based), I have been using my dad's laptop that he uses for work. This means that I have to wait for him to get home, and this often conflicts with my work schedule, leaving me no time for homework.

So... I was sick two days ago and missed some class. Like a good and studious student I e-mailed my teachers whose classes I missed to find out what I needed done. While most were happy to tell me one felt the need to add this,

"Check with other students about the specifics. Next time, you can send an email to entire class the day you are absent or ask those who sit next to you when you come in for missed information. This was spelled out in the syllabus."

to the end of the post. I kindly responded with 'Thank you so much for responding to my question. I'm terribly sorry to have wasted your time.' TQC, am I screwed? Do you think I can pass this off as 'a misunderstanding due to the meaning being jumbled up over the screen versus in person'(aka I meant it as a humbling thing not a snarky thing)?

My painful realization: eventually I will have lost two boyfriends to the same school. Don't get me wrong, I love Ohio State, but think that I lost my ex to the school (sort of), and will most likely lose my current boyfriend to the same place is seriously bumming me out.

Letters from Iwo Jima

Have you seen the movie "Letters from Iwo Jima"?

I watched about half and I found it too slow and kinda boring. I rarely not finish a movie. If it sucks, I usually want to see the whole thing before forming a solid opinion.

Do you think I should give up and return it to Netflix or try to watch the rest? What do you do with a movie that seems boring after an hour into it?

What movies have you not finished because you expected it to suck?

Is there anyone who saw this movie and liked it and thinks I'm dumb for thinking it's boring?

Is there any subject that you have searched for in interests to find a community, and got like, HALF what you thought you would?

I am looking for a community about scrapbooking, for some pointers... With the OMG SCRAPBOOKING obsession these days,  and they weren't updated HALF as much as II would assume the commuities would have been a lot more into it and have a lot more members. IT seemed like the same six people posting on all of them... thought they would be.


TQC has this ever happened to you?
What were you searching for?

I had to do a glucose test today....(for those of you who don't know what it is, I had to sit and drink an extremely sweet drink, sit for an hour, and have my blood drawn.)

After I had my blood drawn, the tech told me that I couldn't have anything sugary for 24 hours..

Unfortunately...that doesn't work for me.

I have a frozen lemonade sitting in my freezer...should I eat it!?
What'll happen if I do?! Will I keel over or just be on a huge sugar buzz?

If it makes any difference, the test was almost 6 hours ago.

TQC, help me with my life.

I'm a current nursing major, about to enter my sophomore year. I want to eventually become a nurse anesthetist. However, I've always contemplated/wanted to become a doctor of sorts. I think what's stopping me is being afraid that I won't do well, it'll be too hard, or I won't get into medical school. But I feel very confident with the path I'm going right now as a nursing major. I'm not even sure of what field I'd want to go into outside of anesthesiology and I'm not 100% sure that being an anesthesiologist would be what I want (Weird, I know).

I've basically pushed this idea out being a doctor out of my head for my freshman year, but I sort of feel like I'm not reaching my fullest potential by going to school for nursing.

So. Ideas, advice? Do you think I should pursue nursing or become a doctor instead? D:

TQC, I'm on a week's worth of medication that I have to take every hour from when I wake up until bed.  I set an alarm to go off on my cell phone but I sometimes forget to re-set it if I'm in the middle of something.

Any recommendations to help me remember?

y so gay

This has been bothering me.

Should I tell people at my new college I'm gay? just bring it up casually? i don't care about people knowing but i feel kinda like i'm hiding without them knowing. i've just been going along with any straightesque jokes and it's getting on my nerves.

do you think it'd look like i was attention seeking if i was just like UHM SO JUST SO YOU KNOW I'M GAY....................

One of These Is Not Like the Other...

I'm making 3 teddy bears for 3 kids aged two to three. For reference, these are not siblings (just cousins) and while they'll all be receiving the bears on the same day (Christmas), they probably won't see each other for a while after that. I'd like to personalize each bear for each kid, but here's the question...

So, should I indulge my creativity and make 3 different bears (sizes, colors, patterns, etc.) or would that only invite conflict between the three of 'em? Basically, I just don't want to promote small-child tantrums, but I'm not sure if they've yet reached the age where they like other peoples' toys better.

Advice from all you lovely people would be greatly appreciated :D Thanks!
