Physically, how do you sleep at night?


Do you sleep in any of these positions? If so, which one(s)?

Do you agree with what this says of you/your sleeping position?


Me: I sleep in odd positions, usually on my stomach with one leg stretched straight, the other bent to the side, hands either under my thighs or belly to keep warm. I don't really sleep in any of the above positions, but because I always sleep on my stomach, I'd be closest to the freefaller. The site's description of the personality kinda made me laugh. I don't feel like it describes me.

Yeah, I'm getting sleepy and am too lazy to actually go to bed, so I'm just thinking about sleep. lawl.

When you attempt to accomplish a goal what approach do you generally take? Why? (think of giving up smoking, losing weight, go for a job interview etc.)
a) go with your past experiences 
b) research your subject and find out what is the most effective method of attaining it
c) ask people around you for advice

I know I just posted but I wanna ask this before I ~forget~

have you ever felt obligated to give someone a gift? why and what was the gift?

I ask because I gave my friend a Halloween card the other day and she goes "Oh, is this the birthday gift you never bought me?" her birthday was in June but I was too broke to buy anything .. it's like the 3rd or 4th time she mentioned it. I felt like royal ass so I bought her season one of The Venture Bros. BUT STILL - I also felt that it was kinda rude of her to hold me to buying her a gift. I thought buying gifts for someone was optional?

so I just got a new laptop and i'm trying to print stuff but when I connect the printer to it, it  brings up this install/setup window. and wants me to place the CD in.,.. you know, that cd i probably threw out years ago.

so anyways someone told me to go on the website and download the drivers for it but there is over 20 different one and I dont understand it, i'm not sure which one i have to use.

 

So if anyone a bit more computer literate would mind helping me figure it out it would be AWESOME

If you're like most people, when you draw a straight line it's easier for you to draw horizontally than vertically OR easier to draw vertically than horizontally. Try it if you're not sure. One or the other will almost always come out straighter and more easily. You can also tell by paying attention to which direction you move the writing implement when you're coloring a block of space.

I'm making a spicy Thai chicken pasta with ginger/lime/cilantro flavors and orrechiette pasta. What would make a good side/veggie dish to go with it? I always do steamed brocolli or roasted asparagus, I need something new and fun and different that'll go well with those flavors, any ideas? Also something that can be easily re-heated, I'm making dinner for my boss so it'll be sitting in the fridge for a few hours. It can also be something that they can easily pop in the oven or whatever and I can just prep it.

The Receptionist Classic

(no subject)

TQC, let's pretend for a moment that you're the best man in your brother's wedding. (For most of you, this requires donning a penis, I am aware of this fact.) It is time to throw the bachelor party.

Traditionally, among your group of friends, this means a trip to.... THE BOOBIE BAR! Hooray for Boobies! The groom is excited, saving his dollar bills for the trip. Even the bride has given her consent for you to drag her almost-husband off to the land of boobs and asses. Your girlfriend, on the other hand, is dead set against this plan of action. She's flat out told you "No strip clubs."

Now TQC, do you honor your brother's desire to hit up the strip club just one more time or do you cave to your girlfriend's wishes?


And in a related vein, ladies of TQC, do you honestly care if your husband/boyfriend/whatever attends a bachelor party that happens to make a stop at a strip club?

Teflon Coating

EDIT:  You have convinced me!  I'm tossing it out.  I don't think it was the method of cleaning (used a nylon scraper), btw...I just cleaned it too soon after use.  The griddle was still hot. 



I have a griddle that I just cleaned, but while cleaning, the teflon coating on parts of it came off.  So, there's still a lot of the teflon but also lots of space where the silver metal shows through.

Is it safe to cook on this?

Thanks!

I just found a kitten, and it's been like a week with no responses to my "I found a kitten" ads, so we're going to keep him.

We want to call him Turkey, because he's kinda mean and really stupid. We decided his full name should be "(Title) Turkey Sandwich" but we can't decide what title. Could be military rank, political designation, American or not, any kind of title at all.

Top contenders:
Admiral Turkey Sandwich
Governor Turkey Sandwich
Don Turkey Sandwich
Senor Turkey Sandwich
Undersecretary Turkey Sandwich

So, what would you name my cat? He's all black and has ridiculously sharp claws, if that's any inspiration.

Bonus: We'll probably call him Turk, and when people ask if we named him after the Scrubs character we can say "Yeah, 'cuz he's black."

How many different nationalities are there in your office or working group?  I am surrounded by so many different accents!

In our office of approx 40 people, we have  Russians, Indians, Pakistanis, Germans, Mexicans, and Guatemalans. I'm sure there are more that I've missed.  Trying to have a technical conversation with a boss with a very thick Indian accent and an engineer with an equally thick Russian accent makes my head hurt sometimes.

I think we are only missing a British/Aussie accent to round everything out :)

Did your prom have a theme? Did it have the kind where you're supposed to actually dress up according to that theme? If it did, what was it?

Mine might have had a theme, but I don't think anyone knew what it was

My parents just spent a few thousand dollars to redo the tile in our bathroom. Our vanity does not match AT ALL. My mom refuses to spend $130 to get a new one. Is this completely asinine? Is there some way to convince her that she's being a crazy bitch about this?


What store do you go to the most?

Target

For the Smokers

Ok, this is for those of us who do *not* want to quit smoking. How long have you been smoking. What's your favourite brand? Have you ever made your own cigarettes? How many cigarettes do you smoke a day? Is there something that you especially like to eat or drink when smoking? I've been smoking for four years. I love George Karelias and Sons (all different types), though I'll take Winston Lights if nothing else is available and I'm considering trying some of the other additive-free brands. I love to make my own cigarettes using the myo method (filtered tubes and injectors) rather than ryo (papers and filters) and my favourite brand there is Sagamore Natural. I smoke about three cigarettes a day. As old as it sounds, I love coffee with cigarettes and find that different coffees go well with different tobaccos.

Have you ever been fired?

Why?


I was fired from my first job at a bakery/restaurant today. My boss told me that she felt I didn't have the "sense of urgency required to work in such a high-stress environment." I only lasted two weeks.

Say I worked for a guy and I'm the manager of an apartment complex he owns. I have to drive money to the bank, drive to other complexes in the area to check out everything about them, drive to other apartment complexes that he owns. This driving is done while I am on the clock, and for the boss. Should I be compensated for this? I live and work in California.

When I asked about benefits, I was told 'sure, you can have benefits, but your pay will go down the amount of the benefits'. Is that legal?

I have to move into this apartment, and he is going to be charging me 1,000 dollars a month. Normal rent is 1,175. Shouldn't it be less than that or something since I have to live there?

Help!

TQC, my puppy is 6 months old, and as such she likes to gnaw on my hands/arms/feet when she plays.

How long will it be until my puppy stops making me her chew toy? :( When did your dog stop being so damn chompy?!



(We are negatively reinforcing when she bites playfully, but I mean. She's a puppy, it's not gonna happen overnight.)
