Ink

Do you have a tattoo? How many? Where? Any in colour? Which is your most painful/least painful?

I have seven, three in colour, and most except for my seventh are on my back/shoulders. Last one is on my leg.

Most painful is one on my leg. It hurt like a biiiiiitch. (It's a fairy holding a lily and she's downcast, and her wings are torn and tattered).

Least? Shooting star in between my shoulders.

skin tags

Do you have any skin tags?

Have you had them removed? How was it done?

Have you ever tried over the counter remedies to remove them?

If you never had one removed, would you want it removed?

What's your favorite group of people on the internet? Like...forum, lj community, etc.

What does your bedding look like? My sheets have stars and planets on them, one of my pillows also has stars and planets, another pillowcase has paisley, and my comforter has Teddy Grahams all over it. Not real Teddy Grahams, mind you. Just pictures.

If you ever had shitty skin, but don't any more: HOW THE HELL DID YOU GET YOUR SKIN TO CLEAR UP?

(I'm not talking about one or two random spots)
Did you notice your skin improve with diet changes? Any special methods for washing your face? If you go to a dermatologist, do they actually work on your face? What do they do? What do they prescribe for you?

I'm sort of at my wit's end. My skin just randomly started to look extra awful and I can't get it to look nice :(

wtf happened to all the cartoons?!??!

So, here I am thinking, my mind roaming, and I turn to the past - namely a few years ago. And something came to mind. I miss cartoons. I miss the satisfaction at finding an animated show that was well scripted, creative, and had great animation. I used to love animation so much that I once wanted to become an animator myself. Yet......everything I once loved is gone! Why have all the cartoons gone to shit!?! The gems blotted out with this mediocre crap that seems to run common themes through multiple stations?! And for the few that are salvaged, they are regurgitated and run into the ground so many times I can't stand them anymore! I almost want to continue on ranting about this, but because I want actual responses and not a bunch of TLDR's, I will finish with this question:

Do you miss real cartoons as much as I do?

4. I am starting myself on Weight Watchers again, on the Flex system. Does anyone have a reliable chart of the points allowances for different weight categories? I'm finding ones online, each of which tell me I should be eating within a certain range every day and I am CONFUSED. :(

I thought I remembered hearing that they weren't considered real anymore, and the 'weddings' conducted weren't legal.

Yeah, a friend of mine got "married" this way recently. Just curious.

Our housemate got a new girlfriend. She's "anti-social" according to him - this means in the entire month they've been dating, she has never said one word to any of us. She doesn't even look at us! We've decided that we hate her. Donut hardly ever talks to us anymore and they just sit in his room with the door closed for 6+ hours (and no, they're not having sex; the walls are very thin here). She's here nearly every night.

So ... how do we get rid of her? We miss Donut. :(

Can you recommend me some good non-gore horror movies?

I never watched horrors, because gore makes me sick and I didn't know any films without one. Then I watched The Cube and it has low enough gore factor that I was scared but not disgusted. So now I hope to find more films in that line.

On the other note. Is there such a thing as 0 area DVD player? I know there are 0 area DVDs, but never heard about players. My DVD player doesn't have a specified area code anywhere in the instructions, can it mean that it is 0 area?

Which would *you* pick? Let's say you're a 23 year old girl with an International Studies degree who just started her masters degree in Marketing and Communications.


A. A job as an English teacher in a high school. You're paid 600 dollars a month and teach grades 7-12, all day every day, and you're the only English teacher. You were hired to "overhaul the English program," because no one graduating can speak it, but it becomes clear that the problem isn't the program, but rather the fact that the kids are undisciplined and no other teacher is disciplining them. Some kids are cool, but they are greatly outnumbered by shitty ones. You don't have any formal experience teaching English. You've worked there for two weeks. Also, this job gives you summers (december-march) off, but that also means you're not paid from the second week of december to the second week of march.

B. A job as a "personal concierge" in a big capital city. You'd be paid 500 dollars a month (which would rise after a one month evaluation period) plus the cost of cell phone usage to go out and investigate businesses, call owners and make deals, and put together packages of "most recommended" places in the city for traveling businesspeople and individuals who are relocating. You previously turned down this job for the teaching job, but the man who interviewed you (the owner) was so impressed by you that he said "any time you want to come work for us, just give us a call." The job is flexible, but there are no "time off periods."

ETA Those of you who pick "B": would you feel bad if you'd worked at job A for a couple of weeks and quit to go to job B? How would you justify it and not feel like you were "abandoning the kids?"

ETA I LIVE IN LATIN AMERICA GUYS. 300 DOLLARS A MONTH IS MINIMUM WAGE. THE PAY IS NOT THE BIG PROBLEM. I supplement shit with ChaCha anyway.

so, one of the many lovely stereotypes about women is that we LOVE drama.

do you love drama? are you always looking for it/trying to make it?

i really hate that stereotype because i can't stand drama. i avoid it like the plague. my best friend on the other hand is always looking for it. she has this weird idea that there isn't passion in a relationship if there isn't drama. she knows that's not right and that it causes problems but she can't stop, so she's always looking for something. it really annoys me.

I am somewhat estranged from my father; we don't get along well and rarely speak. His 57th birthday is tomorrow and I have already planned on getting him a gift. I just spoke to him and he said he'd like to go to lunch with me tomorrow. Do I go and have it be really awkward? Do I say no, risk insult, but DGAF in the long run because we're so distant? Do I try and arrange dinner with both of my brothers included, and that way I can give him his gift from all of us? Help me TQC, this is awkward and weird.

I put up a 50$ gift card for a massage on Craigslist for $45. A lady just emailed me asking if I'd sell it for $30. Now, normally I would say "I did not pay for this! Free money!" but the gift card came from my husband so I would actually be taking a loss on it since we share a bank account. BUT we are super poor and every little bit helps.

Should I sell this gift card for $30? Should I try and haggle and get $35? What would you do? I told her 40$. I hope she takes it!

Is there a better place I can sell this at for more money?

fear de evil dat is de red screen

10:07 AM 10/21/08 · On the offchance you haven't heard about this already, I'd like to spare your television from receiving several whacks on various sides and getting things thrown at it. See, tonight at 6:15pm (not sure if that's gonna be simultameous everywhere or 6:15p in each timezone) any television that hasn't been converted to HD or is on cable or is on some digital service or other...your screen is going to go bright red this evening.

Likely there'll be some message along with that too.

They're running a test and to show the public whether or not they need to convert. As you probably heard, February 17th 2009 all televisions that're still running on just basic analog are going to stop showing much of anything beyond static.

What I'm wondering, because it's hard to picture now, is are any of you still using analog?

When was the last time you really scrubbed your bathroom?
How often do you clean?

I'll vaccuum and Swiffer the floor, spray and wipe the sink, and clean the toilet a couple of times a month but I just REALLY scrubbed everything down today and the last time I did that (though not to this extent) was sometimes in summer because my sisters and their boyfriends were coming and I knew they'd have to use my bathroom.

What cleaning products do you like?
What was the last new one you tried/how did it work?

I like to use Method products because they're not as harsh, plus I can get Lavender scented! But I have stronger stuff for when things are really messy. I just bought a box of the Scrubbing Bubbles Toilet Gels that you stick to the inside of the bowl!

You're on a plane, alone. You're seated in the back of the plane and you're minding your own business. They seat a middle aged man in a wheelchair next to you. During the flight, he pops several pills and washes them down with whiskey, and he becomes obviously fucked up, slurring his speech. He turns to you and starts talking. "I'm going to tell you a secret. Promise me you'll tell no one. I'm going to kill my wife when I get back home. I know that whore's been screwing my brother. All the booze and drugs are just to get my courage up to do it. It's killing me, knowing I have to do it, but I can't tolerate her stinkin' infidelity no longer. I just needed to get it off my chest. Remember, now, this is between you and me". He then leans back and falls asleep. The plane won't land for another hour. What do you do?

You're driving to the mall, listening to the radio, when they play a news report. Among the stories about the presidential race, the economy and sports, they talk about how a mother and her 10-year old daughter were in critical condition after a hit-and-run. Witnesses could only get the vehicle type, so the newscaster asks whoever's listening to be on the lookout for a burgandy '05 Corolla with severe damage on the grill and left headlight and with an EAGLES bumper sticker. You get to the mall and as you're climbing out, you notice a family of 6 exit their car. Mother, father, and 4 kids, all under 10.

I recently got a kitten who doesn't seem to be able to differnetiate between human toys and cat toys. Most notably, she jumps up and paws my LCD HDTV at time, particularly while playing video games (which is mostly what it's used for).

Should I be worried? I keep being afraid she'll use her claws on it. She'll paw it sometimes when it's off, and her doing something to it while I'm gone is one of the last things keeeping me from giving her free roam when I'm out of the apartment.

If I should be worried about her clawing the screen, any relatively cheap, quick, or easy recommondations to keep her from scratching my screen?

reading a lot

Hi TQC,

this semester I dont have a lot of courses but I have to read a lot of stuff for essays I still need to write and because in Germany you have to read a lot of stuff on your own. I study Philosophy, so even though I love it all, it's impossible to not get tired cuz it's often difficult stuff you need to think about all the time. That eats up my energy and frustrates me since at the end of the day I dont manage to read a lot of pages.

Has anyone of you been in such a situation?

Any tips on how to distribute my time (the day, the week), make pauses?

I need to do summaries of what I read, cuz Ill be tested in a few semesters about it. Any tips about that?

General tips on the issue?

I just dont wanna spend the semester forcing myself to go on and on and on. I want a plan that works better than me just being tough.

If you dont have any tips, wanna rant about university (or school) life?

I heard that rock star marylin manson used to be a high school math teacher or something..

Do you think he would be the creepiest math teacher ever?

Or the most effective?

What rock/movie stars do you want to see teaching a class? What class?

What was the last thing someone tried to pressure you into doing?

My friends and family seem to think it would be a fantastic idea for my SO and I have a baby, like right now, ASAP, immediately.  We aren't even engaged or married, which is something we'd both like before children come into the picture.  We have a plan and we're on the right path but everyone wants us to skip over it all and go straight to kids.  His father is the only one that agrees this is not a good idea.  WTF, people.

So because my taco icon post was so successful, will you post icons that you want altered in some way? Then kindly TQCers can play with your icon.


Or if this is a bad idea...can you convert from Celsius/centigrade to Fahrenheit and/or vice versa? I can't. :/

i just flushed my credit card down the toilet! i'm an idiot. :(

(it fell out of my back pocket when i stood up, and i didn't catch it in time!)


what's the last really, really stupid thing you did -- intentionally or accidentally?

Alcohol

I'm broke, and I'm about to head off to the liquor store.

What 's cheap, comes in large amounts, will get me drunk pretty quick, and you don't have to mix with anything for it to be drinkable? Oh, and I have no taste in booze, but I'm not a fan of drinking hard liquor straight.

The only thing that comes to mind at the moment is Arbor Mist, but I'm sure you all have better suggestions. ;)

I was chatting in the kitchen with my roommate when he suddenly stopped mid-sentence and demanded to know what I was doing. Well, TQC, I was spreading Nutella on toast. I thought this is what everyone did with Nutella, he thought this was the strangest (and most disgusting) thing he'd ever seen. (For the record, he likes Nutella, he just puts it on his ice cream).

I leave it up to you to decide: Who's weirder, me or my roommate?

Pets and such

 Half the time, when trying to get my dogs in from being outside, I'll yell "Food!"  or "Treat!" instead of trying to chase them down.  This causes them to come running.  Then I don't feed them, because...it isn't meal time.

Am I a bad pet owner?  Discuss.

im back with yet another (even more depressing!) post about my ex and the mental ward.

good news: he finally got out of the hospital! he'll be back at school tomorrow or thursday.

bad news: one of our friends was hit by a car last night and is in critical condition.

i feel like he cannot take bad news right now and he's going be immersed in it when he gets back. everyone he lives with is incredibly upset about it and he's definitely going to find out.


how in the world do we tell him? i'd ask some of our friends but they're all really upset about this and i don't want to add to it. i don't want to call his mom and talk to her about it because he may be right next to her and she may decide to tell him herself and that might not go well.

what do i dooo?! i was hoping we could just keep it from him until there was a definite answer about how our friend is going to be, but he's definitely going to find out. i also want to be sure that he finds out in a really gentle way before one of his other asshole idiot friends calls him and tells him.

thank god his phone is dead and very few people have his mom's number.

Apparently my mother signed me up for an appointment to give blood today, without telling me until...2 hours ago. The last time I [attempted] to give blood, I cried as soon as the needle was taken out of the package, I ended up with a massive bruise on my arm, AND I was hooked up for the full 15 minutes and managed to give *drumroll* a whopping 1/5th of a unit of blood. And those nurses were good ones.


TQC, on a scale of 1 (Grow up you pussy) to 10 (Holy fuck, who does that?), how douchebaggy of a thing is this to "surprise" someone with?


ETA: I told her "No" and she called me a selfish cunt and left without me. Yaaay!


What is your favorite kind of bug? I like millipedes, because for some reason they're not as creepy as their 8-legged and 6-legged brethren.

Me and my sister have been fighting for the last hour, over text messaging and facebook im about whether my brother looks good with long or short hair. I'm for long and she is for short.

Females, can you orgasm from penetration alone (no clitoral stimulation)?

No
35(38.0%)
Yes
32(34.8%)
I have but it's rare
25(27.2%)

Why do you think some girls can not orgasm through penetration alone?

They are doing it wrong
27(45.8%)
The female body wasn't designed for that
32(54.2%)


eta: ok, number two sucks, i was posting on emotion and annoyance so the question was biased in defensiveness

My niece's birthday was yesterday, and one of the presents I got her is a picture frame to go in her new "big girl" bedroom. Anyway, I want to put a picture in it, but the only recent picture I have of us together is of pretty crappy quality.

My question:

Would it be weird to put a picture I took of my niece in the frame and give it to her as a gift? Or should I just leave the frame empty?

eta: I probably should have mentioned that she lives in Arizona, and I live in Nebraska... so I wont be able to take any new pictures with her.

If you have already graduated and had gotten a class ring:

Do you still wear it?

If not, how long after you were done with high school did you wear it?



I found my class ring today. I felt silly putting it on because its been years since I've graduated.

What would you put on a job application/resume, if you couldn't find the company's location, phone number and don't remember the supervisor or boss' name? Scratch it? Leave that information blank? ??????????

Have you ever received a random compliment from a stranger? If so, what did they say?

Would you rather date someone who is kind-hearted but kind of dumb or someone who is smart but kind of an asshole?

I had a tooth pulled today and it bloody hurts.

What was the last thing that hurt you?

What's the best thing to do to make my gum heal quicker?

Is it normal to feel this drowsy afterwards? All I want to do is sleep.
