do you ever run into people from the past and find it to be really awkward? or how do you feel when this happens? what did you say? what did you wish you said?

tonight i was at the store and in front of me in line was my foster dad from 2 years ago when i lived in foster care. it was really awkward and i kinda freaked out. i was really nice and said hi and stuff and asked him how he was, but what i really wanted to say was "thanks for giving a shit about us after we left asshole" i kinda wished i did but im glad i didnt.

For the people who watch anime,

Would you please list the series you've seen?
Would you tell me which were your favourites?

Since apparently only non-anime watchers are on TQC right now, what is your favorite popsicle flavour?

Do you have a favorite M&M colour?

Speaking of dreams...

TQC, I had a dream last night that I was singing very loudly and equally as horribly in my car at the world's longest stop light with my windows down and the lady next to me kept giving me dirty looks. i can't remember if she actually said anything though, I woke up feeling embarrassed.
What would you have done if you were her?
What song will you loudly and shamelessly rock in your car? My ex and my friend and I used to always have to be ridiculous when we heard Wham!'s Wake Me Up (Before You Go-Go) I should have assumed he preferred peen to vag then, y/y?
I was in the liquor store and saw white grape flavored vodka, would this taste like more alcohoic wine? What flavor vodka do you drink?
How impressive are you? Will you impress me?

TQC, I'm moving house in less than two weeks!

This is good, because one of my current housemates is a drama llama. Now, I'm trying to decide which day to move.

Considering the following removalists' rates, against the fact that I want to get away from Drama LlamaTM asap., which day do you think I should move?

Saturday: (The previous girl moves out of my new room.)
Sunday: $120/hr
Monday: $90/hr
Tuesday $76.5/hr

I can get the day off work Mon or Tues with no problems.

[Edit:] Yeah yeah, you're right, Tuesday's the best idea. *kicks dirt* Goshdarnit TQC, you're just so sensible...

Why is photobucket soooooo agonizingly slow tonight? I want to upload my pictures so I can regal tqc_updates with descriptions of the Push Button Hotel, but it's seriously gonna take me like two hours to upload fourteen pictures. For Christ's sake. Anyway.

quick! I just messed up my laptop power cord bad. I like accidentally split it, and the inside metal wire is exposed and like...snipped and frayed. I have NO MONEY. Can I fix it? Quick! My battery is running out fast.

Random question at 2 AM:

Do anyone remember the first song they heard, or have any childhood songs? Do they bring back any strong memories? I'm just curious, since I was talking about this with my sister.

My childhood songs were "You Are My Sunshine" and "I Will", by The Beatles, which my mom used to sing to me, and Elton John's Madman Across the Water, which my dad used to play for me.

tqc, maybe you can explain this insanity.

my ex's friend wants to trade his truck + the rest of the loan for my ex's car. the truck is worth around $6k, according to this. my ex's friend took out a loan which, a year later, still has $14k left to be paid. WTF.

in addition, my ex actually WANTS TO GO THROUGH WITH THIS. his car is worth around $1k. WHAT IS THIS SHIT? why the hell was the loan for so much and why the fuck does my ex want to take on the remainder of this loan?

2. Let's say that you're in a relationship with someone who loves to play WoW. Suppose that for many reasons - time, money, energy, to name a few - you are not interested in pursuing this hobby. Your partner enjoys discussing the game extensively with you, though, and seems to have not caught on that you sadly do not care. Do you tell them this, or avoid insulting them and feign interest?

This morning when I woke up I got this text message from one of my really good friends:

"Get this... yesterday, my loony mother got taken away. My whole street was blocked w/ like sixteen cops, an ambulence, and a fire truck... I had quite a day yesterday. I'm soo exhausted. And dude im fuckin traumatized. When they brought her out of the house cuffed, she gave me the dirtiest look ever. I dont think ill ever forget it. She even kicked out the back window of the cop car... Anyways shes in prison right now and in a bit she'll be institutionalized. "

1. I was at the gym today and for whatever reason, started looking at everyone's hands. I only saw one person (male) wearing a wedding ring/band. Do married people not go to the gym? Do they have better/happier things to do? More interesting ways of exercising? Or do people not wear their wedding jewelry to the gym? When I was married, I literally NEVER took off my ring.

2. Do you know of anyone who has cheated during the "honeymoon phase" of a relationship?

3. I like to cook. No one ever taught me how, though. Everything I do cook comes out well but I have no technique so I end up using a million and one dishes because things get confusing during preparation and I often avoid certain recipes because I don't understand like, three phrases and have no one to really call for advice. Is there anywhere I could learn what things like "browning the meat" (is that cooking it all the way through? making it so some of it is brown? all of it?), "cook the meat til it's heated all the way through", all the different cooking techniques (braising, broiling, etc) mean, without taking an in person class and without googling a new term every time I come across it? (I have a feeling this whole question doesn't make sense).

4. If you don't know the answer to 3, are you the same way as me? A decent cook without any technique?

Telemarketing Jobs from Home

Hello. I was wondering if any of you have ever did a telemarketing job from home? or if any of you know anyone who did. What companies will do it? I've been searching the net but most of them look like scams but I know THERE is some legit ones out there because I heard it being done before. I'm a student and there's like no employment around here at all, and I know these kind of jobs work well around school schedules.

I'm horrible at making decisions TQC! Help me please? I've been seriously considering adopting a cat since my new condo seems awfully empty when I get home at night. I was just going to get one cat but I found someone giving away two perfectly good already neutered ones on my local freecycle group. They come with cat supplies (which is good because I don't have any) but they have to go together since they're brothers and don't like to be apart the OP has said. Since I have no other pet at the moment I have the space for them both. I haven't had a cat in years though so I'm thinking it's going to take a little getting used to.

Question is, do you think I should get these two cats or just wait until I find someone giving away an individual one?

Is getting two cats at once going to be too much of a challenge for me?

What are the odds someone else will adopt these kitties if I don't since there's two of them and the OP has said they have to be gone by the end of the month?

I signed up for an ornament exchange for this message board I post on. We have a thread in which we state our ornament preferences. I just said I didn't want something having to do with angels or anything really religious. But the person I'm buying for has an ENORMOUS list of really, really specific things and then also listed things that her daughter likes. So basically, she is requesting two ornaments.

I had already picked out an ornament before I received my partner. It is a gorgeous, EXPENSIVE Royal Copenhagen ornament and I wasn't going to pay that much attention to my partners' preferences because I had specifically picked this one out.

Do I have more obligation now to scrap my idea since it doesn't really fit into her preferences or does my partner have the obligation to just accept whatever I send her since it is a gift? And since she listed her daughter's preferences am I "supposed" to buy something specifically for her daughter as well? I really can't afford to do that.

Okay, so I am trying to see if I am spending too much money. I am generally pretty cheap, but I don't know...
Since August 25th:
Food/Living Expenses: $345.22

Eating out: $115.16
Fun: $34.21
Trip to Chicago/tattoo: $423.85 (again, this was a ridiculous once in a lifetime thing)

Have you/would you lend out something expensive to a friend? Would it matter if they were a close friend or not? Would it matter on how expensive it was? What if your friend REALLY NEEDED it for some reason? What if it was your car?

I know people who have let other people borrow their cars, and that usually ends up in disaster. I don't understand why people do that. Not just for stuff like "hey let me go to the convenient store for some chips real quick" but like a more long term loan.

I don't let people borrow anything really. I will lend out a book or a DVD occasionally, but for the most part I don't trust people with my things. Learned that from direct experience.

Why do the internet and AIM always look different on TV and movies?

Why do the characters speak so close to each other -- like a few inches to a foot apart -- when there's a serious moment?

Why is it that when one character wants to speak to another in private, they only walk like two or three steps away?

And when the 3rd party is left while the two characters are talking right next to them, why can't they hear what's going on?

Ok, I know this is a totally gross question and I'm sorry about that.

In two different public bathrooms this weekend, I've walked in and the first toilet was totally full of poop and lots and lots of toilet paper.

WTF is wrong with people?

I mean, I guess that when I realized I was having a monster poop, I'd flush as I went along. Or, I'd flush before I starting throwing a whole roll of toilet paper in there. Short of neither one oft those working, I would tell someone at the counter that someone made a mess in the bathroom.

3) What do you think is the ideal size for a journal? My current 18x23.5cm journal is in its last pages, and I'm not sure what size to buy.

Does anyone have a really stellar egg salad recipe?

My only requirements are that I don't want it to be too mayonnaise-y. I dislike mayonnaise, and for the first time I've found an egg salad that I like, because of the lack of the mayo taste. Unfortunately the egg salad is at my local bagel shop, and is too expensive to be buying all the time. I'll probably be substituting the mayo for vegan mayo or aioli anyway, so if you have any good recipes with either of these in it, that would be great. I like mustard, but I don't want it to be too mustard-y either, somewhere in the middle is nice.

And so this question can be more general... do you like egg salad? What about potato salad? How do you like it made?

How many of you have "Surfin' Bird" by The Trashmen stuck in your head right now?

Is the bird really the word? And if not, what is?

Alternately, what is the last song you couldn't stop singing to yourself?

Have you ever seen a therapist, or do you currently? Did/do you like them?

I've been to one other one, but I didn't like her much. She was a children's therapist and I was like 17, so I dunno why I got stuck with her. I'm calling to try and make an appointment tomorrow with one, since I think I'm finally falling apart. I'm more nervous than anything.

Which is worse: religious nutjobs who insist on keeping someone alive via machines in order to prolong life and not murder them [eta: when the person is in a persistent vegetative state or otherwise not going to get better/regain consciousness] , or the other kind of religious whackadoodle that lets their child die of a very treatable condition because they refuse treatment. Why?
