What's the last TV show you stopped watching?
Like after having watched a season or two, you decide you just cannot continue?!

I think the only show I stopped watching was Lost because it got ridiculous. Apart from that I can't stop, no matter how bad they get. I still watch One Tree Hill because I liked it FIVE YEARS AGO when I was 14...

Soooo....I'm fixing to move out of my parents' house finally. They were completely cool about it, which was totally surprising. What was the last thing your parents did that surprised you?

I'm going to have a roommate. I know she doesn't smoke, I've seen the house and the pets, I get to paint and hang things in my room. What things should I ask her to get to know her living habits a bit better?

Will you tell some roommate horror stories so I know what to avoid?

I just bought a new home this summer. It has hardwood floors upstairs. The hallway had a carpet runner fixed to it, so we ripped it up cuz it was all stained and nasty. Turns out the floor underneath looks great. The stairs also have this same stained carpet on them but we dont know if there's hardwood under it. We cant afford to recarpet them now.

Do you think I should just get crazy, hope for the best, and rip it up anyways?

Let's talk about monogamy (questions based on statements by some guys whose lives I've recently pried into).

Are humans meant to be monogamous?
Why do people get married? For what reasons would you get married?
Can there really be no expectation of only marrying once (and staying married) in a lifetime?
Since it's clearly so hard to find someone one would want to be with for a lifetime, why are 20 year olds so eager to get hitched?
I believe people need someone else...one person to live with and share their lives with. Do you believe that?
Do guys pretty universally not believe in marriage, or am I just talking to the wrong lot?
Do you have anything else to say about marriage?

The rate of pay will be $300.00 a week. If interested please send a recent photo with measurements and availability. I am looking to start in November. This can be a long term or short term job."

Phones! Also, Make decisions for me, TQC.

1. I need a new t-mobile phone. Which one should I get? (Not a blackberry, sidekick, etc. I'm not paying for the data plan. Just text/IM, phone, camera//video-no internet, e-mail etc necessary. these are the less expensive ones that I like.

2. What kind of phone do you have?
Currently I have a Samsung Blast, which I really love.

3. How many texts do you go through each month?
between 10-30k. I hate actually talking on the phone with anyone other than my mother, since she doesn't text, so I go through a LOT.

4. When did you first get a phone?
High school, sophomore year. I'm a college junior now.

5. Do you even have a house phone anymore?
No. My roommates and I all have cells, so it's pointless for us to pay additional money for a land line nobody would ever use.

i thought about getting one of those circle sleds and painting it brown but i'm pretty short, i think it might end up being problematic. right now i'm thinking about just getting more brown fabric and having a flat shell.

and lastly... have you given it to anyone since you got better? like have any of your boyfriends, or girlfriends, gotten mono about a month or so after you started dating? most of them? one of them?

TQC, I need some help. I'm sure you're tired of the political questions, buuuut my dad is (was) a hardcore Republican; I was under the impression he'd be voting for McCain this year. He sent me this e-mail though:

I no longer consider myself a Republican (although I don’t think I changed my registration). I share many conservative values, yet I do not believe that either party is the real solution to our issues. I like many of the goals of the Democrats, but don’t think caring for people and sharing can be legislated.

I am deeply troubled by Senator Obama’s plan to “redistribute” wealth. The government (which represents us) doesn’t have the right to take money that one person earns and give it to someone else who didn’t earn it. This is driven by class envy and is a socialist idea. Everywhere this has been tried it disincents hard workers from producing since it will be taken from them anyway.

I admire Senator Obama’s ability to communicate and his intelligence, but this one issue may be the deal killer for me.

Honestly, I’m not sure I’m even going to vote this year. We’ll see.

What can I say to him?

Doctor-Mom TQC, halp. :(

I've been in bed all day feeling too sick to move from really bad cramps. I haven't eaten all day, therefore. I feel like I could potentially be quite nauseous. My options for food are to go get some Chic-fil-a or wait another 4 hours and go to the cafeteria and eat equally greasy food, or just not eat at all. I don't have soup or access to soup and I'm too po' for that anyway. 8( What do I doooooo? I'm hungry but I don't want to eat grease and just end up feeling sicker.

I have thirty billion about 40 tshirts that I really need to go through and do something with, because I never wear most of them. A lot of them are way too big on me anyway.

They run the gambit from concert tees to tees from old organizations in college I was in and some from old jobs. And yes, I am one of those people who has an emotional attachment to clothing (or else it's really comfortable, I can't tell anymore).

So what should I do?


Addendum: also, how do I sort through them??  Which ones should I keep?  HALP.

So what should I go as? My only requirements are that I need to be able to fit the costume in a backpack, and put it on in a toilet cubicle. And I'm fat, so no slutty cat/vampire/pumpkin/etc.

The sort of pumpkin I see most commonly used for carving (like what's shown here) isn't usually sold here. The only time I see that type for sale is this time of year, and that's only started in the last few years. Anyway, I saw some today, and they were $19! They're also labelled as Halloween Pumpkins (as opposed to Japanese, Blue or Butternut, which are the more common types).

How much is that sort of pumpkin (traditional Halloween) where you live?

Also, if you were going to a wedding that was about an hour and a half away (around 90km/55 miles), and someone else was driving you there, would you offer them some money for petrol? If so, how much?

I think petrol is around $1.25-$1.30/litre at the moment, and I have no idea how much petrol would be used for a three hour round trip. The driver will be going to the wedding whether I'm in the car or not, but I think it'd be rude to not offer some money. I was thinking between $10 and $20. Would that be too little/too much/just right?

What's the difference between a lover and a fuckbuddy, if you think there is one?

Also there was a photo of her in a plaid punk girl skirt from when she first gained the weight that made everybody go "buh, is that even really her?"

So I asked last night about a possible sty and going to the eye doctor. Well my eye was almost swollen shut this morning, so I went to the doctor this afternoon (soonest I could get in with my job). I have a chalazion (type of sty). He said if it'd gone for another day or so, it could've formed a cyst and would've had to have been cut out (FUN!). So now I'm on a routine of eye drops and warm compresses. But anyway, thanks to everyone for y'all's replies (one of you asked for an update).

Anyway, so time for a question...

What is your favorite comfort food? In other words, when you just have a crummy day, what is a food that just makes you all warm and happy inside? Mine would have to be my mom's potato cornflake casserole (apparently aka funeral potatoes).


Did you know that Martin Luther King was unfaithful to his wife??

I am so bummed. Why do all of these awesome people have to be unfaithful bastards? Like Billy Clinton! Such a shame.

EDIT: I just found this quote online...

Martin's advice in Ebony, placing the responsibility for an affair on a wife's shoulders: "When a woman asked what to do about her husband's extramarital affair, King told her to think of what the other woman might have to offer that she did not. What faults of her own might make her husband look elsewhere? "Do you nag?" King asked her."

I had a soc take-home test that was due last night. My instructor, bless his heart, has given me a two-day extension. However, in the need to get it done as quickly as possible, my brain is half dead and I don't really know the material and my writing has fallen to the reading level of a fourth grader. Here's a quick example:

i need another class for next semester and i'm not sure which one to take. i've narrowed it down to dream psychology and just general psychology

the dream class is something i am REALLY interested in, but i don't know who the professor will be (and there are a lot of shitty profs at my school) and its a night class so i'd be at school for pretty much 12 hours, with a 3 hour break while i'm at work.

the general psych one is not quite as interesting as the dream one, but would still be fun and cover more topics. it fits into my schedule a lot better and i've heard the prof is AMAZING.
