What song have you listened to repeatedly before and always had the wrong lyrics to part of? (Like on that old commercial where the girl sang pour some shook up ramen instead of pour some sugar on me)

Will you tell me about your username?

Do you have a general outline for what you want to do with your life and when, or are you just playing it by ear?

ie: do you know when you want to get married, have kids, what kind of a job you want, where you want to live, anything else that might factor into your plan?

My answer:
have a house and move in with the boy by may
get married to said boy in approximately 2 years
pay off my student loan and car in the next year
graduate in the allotted four years, since that's all that my scholarship covers!
eventually have lotsa babies. No rush on that one though.

I'm moving soon to a town where I won't know anybody. I will be moving closer to a friend with 2 daughters around my son's age though. My new house will be on her way to church every Sunday.

Even though I am not very religious, should my son and I start going to church so we can make friends?

He would be in the nursery and not with me during the sermon. I've been with her once before a year ago and the church had a lot of people I went to high school with that attended. I'm not a social butterfly and having my friend introduce me to people may help me be less shy. FWIW, it's a Baptist church.

What's the weirdest lie you've ever told?

I got all of my friends to believe that I had read Lord of the Rings until I finally confessed the truth. My one friend is still mad at me about it.


While driving ever so innocently to my shop this morning, I came in contact with a group of fuck mooks. One of them decided it would be cute to hit me in the face with a spit ball. Being a mature adult I calmly wiped off the spit from my face and continued on.

But now I am home and I would like to pretend I got revenge on this asshole.

1. What should I have done?
2. What would you do if someone spit in your face for no reason?
3. Does anyone have a bat?

Is anyone here from the UK and could please give me some quick information???

To make a long story short, if you had to help a child (17, with younger sibling) who was being abused by their parent, who would you tell them to contact? They are no long in high school and just re-moved in with their abusive mother from their grandmother's who has fallen very ill.

Is there a phone number for like Social Services here in the USA? I don't know if what I'm finding on Google is correct and I really am worried about this girl and would like to try to help her.

For the past 2 weeks, I've been waking up almost exactly an hour before my alarm goes off. It doesn't matter what time my alarm is set for - 5:30, 6, 7... An hour before, I'm wide awake (although I can usually go back to sleep).

guys, I think I'm a witch. My grandmother on my fathers side was a quarter witch and I heard it was genetic. I keep getting urges to ride broomsticks. I've begun to cackle uncontrollably.

Okay, since the concensus last night was that my new phone(a KRZR), which I picked simply because it looked less problematic then the shitty blackberry I had, is really shitty and probably going to cause problems.

I still have a buffer zone where I can take it back, and since I wasn't thrilled with the sound quality, I think that's what I might do.

So, TQC, my question for you is: What is a good phone I should get? I do a lot of texting if that helps.

And I'm not getting another blackberry. The trouble that thing gave me wasn't worth the easiness.

bring on the snark tqc :)

long story short: i am (decent) friends with my boyfriend's (of 2.5 years) ex gf. I don't get jealous often at all, and I even took it so far as to live with the girl last semester. She is extremely slutty (I know she's my friend, but really, it's a bit ridiculous) and very manipulative. Today my boy and i were discussing things we've given up lately (smoking, soda, etc). I mentioned that I gave up doritos, which I love, and he said he eats them everyday. I asked him how, cause we never carry cash and our school's caf doesn't accept plastic. This girl and my boy work together, unfortunately, and apparently, she has been bringing him a bag of doritos everyday for a while, sometimes with a little note attachted. he said it was kind of like a tradition because he stole her doritos once.

as I am typing this shit out, I know that I'm overreacting, but i want to get your opinion. it's just very annoying.

 i'm sure you will, now that i just read that all over, but do you think I'm being a bit of a baby?

also, why is it so easy to be super nice to someone you really don't care for?

if you don't care about my childishness, what was the last song that you heard that just made you wanna get up and dance your ass off?


Because you care about my college life...

1) For my African-American Lit class, we have to do a paper/presentation on an African-American artist of some type (actor, writer, painter, etc, etc)and discuss their impact on American culture. The problem is, the two people that immediately sprung to mind, we're studying in class (Spike Lee and Maya Angelou). Any awesome suggestions for me, TQC?

Failing that,

2) Which of these books should I get through first? Jane Eyre, Tales from the 1,001 Nights, or The Souls of Black Folk? I have to read them all eventually, though I've read Jane Eyre before and could conceivably fake it.

Failing that,

3) What is your favorite Spike Lee movie? I love Do The Right Thing and 25th Hour.

my bffl is a year below me in school and is picking colleges this year. she's very smart and looking to go to a state school (NY, so a SUNY)

her b/f goes to potsdam and she looked into that school and was like "OooOooOoh i wanna go there!" her and her b/f got serious really quick (ILU in 2 weeks) and it's her first b/f. she's way smarter than going to potsdam

am i being a bitch for telling her that going there is a bad idea? i told her that i think that the decision to go is heavily influenced by her b/f and that she's too good for that school. she thinks i'm trying to get her to go to the college i do (which idc really if she does) and she just says that "i think i'd like a place like potsdam a lot more it's a smaller town and stuff."

do you think it's really my place to tell her that it just seems like a bad idea? i am never a bitch to her, like we never fight, and idk why but her and her relationship with her b/f always bothered me.

this really didn't make that much sense but thxtqc.

Which sounds better?

I am taking a class twice a week and I walk everywhere. Right now I'm on the Monday/Wednesday option, the class being from 7:00 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. The class is about a ten minute walk from work and then another ten/fifteen minute walk home.

I have the option to take the next module of the class at the same time, same days, same place, OR I can switch to Tuesday/Thursday from 5:15 to 8:45 p.m. On Tuesdays it would be in a building right across from where I work, but then it would take me 20 or 25 minutes to walk home. On Thursdays it would be in the same building I'm in now, ten minutes from work and 10/15 minutes from home.

Which option sounds better? On the one hand, as it starts getting darker I'd rather not walk home at 9:30 at night. Plus I'd get a different teacher on Tuesdays/Thursdays and I'm not thrilled with my current teacher. On the other hand, I'd rather get the classes over with earlier in the week and it gets dark so early here that within a matter of weeks there won't be a huge difference between 8:45 and 9:30.

So my job is to cook for a dude and his wife,breakfast/lunch/dinner..and right now I'm blank on what to make for dinner. What should I make? Last night I made chicken tacos, the night before that it was baked halibut. Don't suggest pasta because he doesn't like a lot of pasta (wtf?) and it has to be something that can sit in the fridge for a couple hours and re-heat well.

Secondly, this is my new baby nephew, don't you want to eat his face off? I do.

Dear TQC,

As you may know, my parents have a new puppy. Today is my day off and I'm stuck baby sitting the puppy, so I want to go socialize her somewhere. But other than the park or the pet store, I can't think of anywhere that there would be a lot of foot traffic, and that it wouldn't be weird for me to just sit there looking cute. Preferably also cheap.

Any suggestions of where I should take my puppy?

The faculty at my university just went on strike. The longest time they have been on strike for is a month, and they are completely unsure how long this one will go on for. It could end tonight for all I know, lol.

What would be your reaction to having all your classes cancelled? My friends are a mix of "yay! sleep in time" and "fuck I paid a couple thousand for this??" while I don't really mind as long as it doesn't go on forever. I had a quiz scheduled today and I'm pretty stoked I get more study time.

Keep in mind that this missed classtime will just be moved into our vacations, ie a week we get off in October and March that's meant for catching up.

Is anyone else addicted to searching through the animals on

If you are, what do you search for on there?

Are you searching because you're honestly thinking about getting a pet or for some other reason?

My favourites right now are Toby (who has been on there way too long) and Dori (a deaf border collie).

Ex porn star Traci Lords appeared in Penthouse when she was 16 by using a fake ID and lying about her age. She then went on to star in quite a few pornographic films before she turned 18, when she did one last porno movie (her only legal porno movie) and "retired". All of these movies were produced with the impression that she was older than she actually was. She got a lot of people in a lot of trouble.

It is my understanding that it is now illegal to own that issue of Penthouse as well as those movies produced before she was of age.

My question is this:
If you knew someone who owned that issue of Penthouse and/or some of those movies that were filmed before she was 18, would you be repulsed? Would you consider them a sexual deviant or pedophile? Should that person be arrested and registered as a sex offender?

What if it was a close friend, SO or family member?

edit: This is assuming that you discover it now, when they know that she was legally under-age for performing in porn.

Somewhere in the Summer of 1997 I introduced LaruDebbie to my best friend, and almost a brother of sorts these days given how much Mom likes him, KevinniveK. As one of those types that don't get up till the crack of noon, we got there about 9am, he wasn't quite up to being seen at that point so we raided his kitchen. Not so unusual, there wasn't much in the way to eat so I got creative.

I made us some mayo & ketchup sandwiches.

Obviously, these are all bad qualities, but which one bothers you the most?

Poll #1261699 Palin=drone

Since this is a liberal community, let's talk dirt about Sarah Palin. What about her bothers you the MOST?

She lacks experience.
She probably can't juggle both the VP office and being a mother, especially of a 'special needs' child
She's a hunter, likes to kill animals from low-flying copters and wants to take polar bears off the endangered species list
Is corrupt. Billed the state of Alaska for 312 nights she allegedly travelled when she really stayed at home
She's not very informed. Really doesn't know much about world politics at all. Only been to Canada once, despite living next to it
Strongly pro-life. Even victims of incest and rape can't get rid of their womb inhabitants
The hypocrisy in pushing the effectiveness of abstinence-only education and having a pregnant teenage daughter
Forcing her daughter's boyfriend, who clearly doesn't want responsibility and is not ready, to marry her daughter
Supports the Iraq war and believes it's God's will
Doesn't believe in global warming
Advocates banning of books from public libraries, and threatened to fire librarians who don't agree
Abused her power as governor by trying to get her ex-brother-in-law fired
I like Sarah Palin

Do this or do that?


I live in a room that is attached to another one. I rented both from a friend, who also lives there, and rented one away to another girl because I cant afford both. She moved in at the beginning of September. We have a contract that gives me 3 months before she's allowed to move out.

She told me yesterday that she wants to move out because some friends of hers offered her a room and she wants to live with them. Which was kinda bitchy of her. But my question is:

Should I move out too because it seems stressful to find someone who doesnt have a problem with my room attached to them or do I quit too and seek a room that is not attached to another one?


EDIT: she's giving me the three months! I just fear the next one will have issues with the room being attached to his/hers too and this will turn out to be an endless cycle!

So, does anybody know where I may find such things?

You have been called into the office of you boss for something that he called "a clear abomination against God, the country, and oh my God the kitchen is on fire." You go in, casually as you can, and try to inform him that you didn't MEAN to set the kitchen on fire, it's just that the giant cockroach monster was getting in the way of the fridge and you really needed your Activia© to keep you regular-- and having a bad diet has forced you to need it. He claims to understand, but docks your pay because the cockroach monster was going to be the new company mascot, and now they have to think of something else.

It isn't until you get home that night that you realize you've been followed by something. You turn, and don't see it. Then you do that cartoon character thing where you keep turning until eventually you see it. It's the cockroach monster, burned and leaking pus and all sorts of other fun and exciting things. It opens its mouth and cries out in fury. In the tussle that follows, you find yourself pinned to the ground with the jaws of of the cockroach monster dripping some kind of goo onto you.

It looks at you and manages to say, "What's your favorite breed of dog?"

sex related journal articles

Hey, everyone-

First, a disclaimer: I'm not asking you to do my homework for me, but this IS a school related question. For my Sex and Relationships class we need to critique a news/journal/magazine article about a sex or relationship related topic. My teacher gave us some instructions on how to search for articles, and I've been looking at a few, but I don't want to use the same articles as everyone else (it's a class of 400 people and I'm guessing there will be a lot of overlap).

So, the question- have you read any interesting news or magazine articles about sex and relationships that you'd like to share with me? They must be published after July 1, 2008.

(I really don't want you to do my homework for me. Promise. I just figure more than one set of eyes on something like this could be useful.)

I just heard Nickelback's song Never Again, and this one lyric confused me.

The living room becomes a boxing ring
it's time to run when you see him
coming licking his hands
She's just a woman
Never Again

I know exactly nothing about fighting, so what the crap does this mean? Does having spit covered hands help punching-wise, or is it just something people do when they feel like beating peeps up sometimes?

What's the oddest/most depressing warning you've seen on an object?

Mine is "Warning: To avoid danger of suffocation, keep this plastic pillow away from children. Do not use this pillow in cribs, beds, carriages, or playpens. This product is intended as a packing product only." It's on a air thingy they put in a package I just got. D: I'm really hoping no one ever actually put it in a baby's bed thinking it was a good idea.

I told my friend he was cute and he rolled his eyes and said "you know I don't think I'm cute," I responded "Does anybody?"

1. TQC, do you think you are cute?

I always tell my daughter she is pretty in hopes that she will never doubt it. But then I started to wonder.....

2. Which is worse?: Somebody who doesn't believe they are attractive or somebody who really believes they are attractive?

3. One of my favorite black t-shirts is missing. My laundry is done, my room is clean, and I haven't come home topless that I can recall. Where is my black t-shirt?

Tech Question

So I did something stupid and can't fix it. On Youtube on the top right of the video player has anyone ever seen the thing that says block? Well I clicked it by mistake and now I can't see the video player. Any ideas on how to fix it and bring my player back? I'm using Mozilla on Vista if that helps any. kthnx :D

Firefox was being funky so I reinstalled it and now the built-in spell check is gone, I thought that it was just automatically on the browser but do I have to do something to get it?

will you tell me an interesting fact (that is true) about yourself, that people wouldn't expect from you?!!?

i'll tell you one:
once upon a time whilst being naughty on lsd i wrote the most epic shakespearey-tragedy type story about a character who basically was me having this tragic time and then killing herself with a hair dryer in the bath. it was 23 double sides long and it had no punctuation and was spelt wrong and was in crazy fast handwriting, it took me 4 and a half hours to write and i didn't talk to anyone or do anything else for that whole time. i still have it, my boyfriend and some of my friends have read it and say its actually very good but i think its horrible and disturbing!!!!

Job question!

Situation: You look on the job postings and find one asking to help a disabled woman with hygiene and her job as an art director, meaning you will be cleaning and bathing her, running around and being her gopher. It's from Sat. from 5:30 pm to Monday at 7:30 am. No idea how old she is or why she is disabled.

$360 bucks per weekend. Can't be a smoker and need a valid driver's license.

Worth it?

1. If you were selling a PSP-2000 (Darth Vader Special Edition) with a case, charger, and seven much would you sell it all for? It's in good condition. Decent games.

2. What are your thoughts on "It's Always Sunny in Philadelphia"? I bought the Season 1 and 2 set yesterday. Is it good?

3. K'Nex or Legos?

4. Am I the only one who likes Futurama more than Family Guy?
