If you've been casually hooking up with a guy for a little while, and you sort of have a teensy crush on him, and he mentions the other girls he is going on dates with in the hope of finding true love, does that:

a. make him a tool
b. make you a tool
c. mean he is secretly trying to make you jealous

What party do you identify yourself with?

i'm not from the US
i have no opinion
you forgot to mention something that i will tell you about in comments

literacy, anyone?

the new Wolf Parade album is called At Mount Zoomer but the words 'mount zoomer' together make me think/read satsuma. you know, the orange like fruit.

so i read it/think it "At Satsuma".

is there a term for that or is my brain firing all its electrics to the wrong places? i do it with other things, too, but this is the only example i can think of right now.

I kind of want to hug all of you guys right now. Would you be okay with that?

ETA: I am going to bed but if you still want a hug then message me and I'm sure we can arrange something.

TQC, I have Thyroid Uptake and Scan tomorrow, and I don't really know what it is. I don't really care to know, but they told me I have to fast the night before, starting at 10 PM. I forgot to ask if this includes water. Do you think it does, or can I have a goddamn glass of water without throwing off my test results?

Okay so I had this shirt a long time ago.  Well, two years maybe.  I loaned the shirt to a friend and was never able to find it again. Collapse )

Now I am really wanting to find this shirt.  Or replace it.  The only thing I know about it is the fox (or wolf) emblem.  So, does anyone know what company this shit is so I can purchase a new one?

I can see Russia from my house!

Is there anything you follow, a tv show, a web comic, a book series, whatever, that you actually no longer like and really have no idea why you still follow it, other than habit?

Mine's the web comic Penny and Aggie. It used to be a fun little comedy about two teenagers who hated each other... now it's got angst leaking out of every orifice and I really don't care anymore, but I still read it. :/

Tell me about yours?

Will you look at the profile of either the person who posted above you in this post or another one or commented on your last post (kind of a reach, eh) and list who they are and something that you have in common with them whether or not it's listed on your interests list?

What was something you were taught when you were younger (think 10 years old or younger) that was supposed to be helpful but really just scared the shit out of you?

For me, it was fire prevention in kindergarten (omg i bagged all the stuff up that i loved the most in a garbage bag and didn't play with them for a month because i was afraid if the house burned down i'd lose all my favorites :(

Stinger ideas?

I work in a paediatric department of a hospital. Our theme for Hallowe'en is "Old MacDonalds Farm".
I'm going to be the bee that pollenates the crops on Old MacDonalds farm.

I'm looking for ideas of how to make the stinger. I need to still be able to sit in an office chair with it on.
Any ideas how I can make a stinger for my bee costume?

Fun with rentals

Have any of you been in a rent to own agreement on a house (rental with option to buy at the end of the lease)? How'd that work out for you? Any tips/warnings you can provide?

If not:

What is your favorite halloween candy?
What is your LEAST favorite halloween candy?

Do you ever paint your nails? What color(s)? Do you coordinate your nail color with anything else (outfit, holiday, new paint job on your car)?

Feng Shui

Do you believe in the power of feng shui?

Have you ever tried it/do you currently try it?

After looking at basic tips, my room is out of whack. I think it is time for a positive change.

What's the most uncomfortable/ridiculous/embarrassing thing your job has forced you to do?

Mine has a company-wide "fall festival" where each department puts on a skit, in front of 500 coworkers. This year we're going to be dressed in lederhosen, suspenders, and feathered caps. Awkward.

I've heard stories about Wal-Mart employees having to do a morning cheer, which is worse. At least mine is only once a year.

What could I say to shut up cashiers who won't stop asking if I want to open a whateverthefuckstore card?

Some of them just don't give up. I try to be nice, but after they ask me 10+ times, tell me "you'll still save 15% even if you're not approved!" and then question me about why I don't want one, I really don't feel like being nice anymore.

How do you deal with these extremely persistent individuals?

Sarah Palin Barbie Icon

I know while reading TQC yesterday I saw a Sarah Palin Barbie icon, but now I can't find it. She was dressed in a pink suit and being held in someones hand. It must have been a comments inside of a post. I have looked back two day and still cannot find it. Can you help me find it great ones?
edit: Done. Thanks!

I am fairly tight with money and hate spending things that dont need to be spent. For example, this morning I spent half an hour at the library taking photos of pages of reference books so I could use them in my essay, rather than paying to have them photocopied at 10p. I saved perhaps £2.

What was the last silly thing you did to save money?

Have you ever taken two different language classes at the same time? How'd it go for you?

I ask because I'm toying with the idea of taking both German and Russian classes this summer (I'm already taking German; Russian would completely new), but worried that taking them in tandem would be a bad idea and I would mix up all the words and grammar. Halp me TQC :(

(no subject)

Are there any words you have trouble pronouncing?

I used to have trouble saying cinnamon, aluminum, and millennium. I somehow am able to pronounce them a little better now, but I think they still sound funny. I could not say "exacerbate" the other day, though.

I went to an event with my mom last weekend where they played a game that entailed everyone writing down an "interesting little-known" fact about themselves on a sticky nametag and then putting it in a large bowl. Then everyone had to pick out another one and find the person who had written that particular nametag. One lady wrote she'd been to 232 Grateful Dead concerts. Fun, right?

Except it took me 15+ minutes to think of something little-known or interesting. I guess I'm not secretive enough, or just boring.

What would be your "interesting little-known fact"?

This girl I'm friends with keeps posting status updates about her now ex bf saying things like "Blah blah you're a liar" "fuck you" "you suck at life."  She's posted a bunch in like 10 minutes!

Is she now going to be pissy because I commented saying it was lame?

Also, there is a terribly hard bump on my head behind my ear, kind of where my skull meets my neck.  It is a tumor and I will die, yes?

Should I make my boyfriend's hottie dad a birthday card?  We're going to San Diego for his party this weekend.

I need a new RPG to play on my XBox 360. I just finished Jade Empire (an oldie but goodie), and now I need another one! Does anyone know if there will be another Jade Empire? I keep hearing rumors but I don't think BioWare has said anything about it recently.

The game I want needs to be rich in story and character development, without fighting that is overly complicated. No MMORPG's either. It can be old or new, I don't care. I've already played all the Elder Scrolls games I wanted, Gladius, and Fable so not those as well.

Are there any other good ones I missed?

And for all of you that don't know don't care, what are you most looking forward to right now?

I played drunken dress-up at my friends place last night, and still have his red suspenders; I want to use them to come up with a costume for a party this weekend, but the only ideas I can come up with/find on google are stupid and generic, like "sexy firefighter". Have any cool idea's?

Yes, TQC, this is my first question

Why do I sleep on my husband's side of the bed when he is away?

And why does my cat insist on sleeping ON my head or neck when I go to bed? 

She paws my neck and purrs loudly in my ear and gets her wet nose in my ear.
If she does it again, what should I do to make her stop?

TQC, I have a black corset/bustier (it's listed as both, depending on where you look; has shoulder straps so I tend to favour bustier), a white mini skirt, and black hooker heels.

What is the most ridiculous get-up you have ever worn for any occasion?

Do you enjoy dressing up for any reason, ie costumes, formal wear, etc?

Is it bad to make a post-BA career choice simply because you know someone in that field who you think is a driveling idiot, and you want to go and kick ass in that job and make them feel pathetic compared to you (and coincidentally, get all the ill-deserved attention from family and friends that this person gets instead of you?)

TQC, in my stomach flu sickness I missed my Creative Writing class this morning. My classmate brought me 3 writing prompts, and I'm supposed to pick one and write a narrative poem based on what it says. So, TQC, I ask you, which prompt should my doped-up brain write about?

Which prompt?

I was the forgotten fifth Ninja Turtle, decidedly more career-oriented than the others.
Scientists made a creature that was half predator, half prey.
I was Godzilla and had just defeated another monster attack on Tokyo. I presented the city with an itemized bill for my services.

What was your last sex-related dream?
I had a dream this morning where I was trying to make a dental dam out of a condom. The condom had five points and I was going 'are condoms usually like that?' then 'of course, otherwise how would you fit all your fingers it'. I think this indicates I haven't had sex with a man in a long time. Then the glove-condom turned into a singlet top, which I thought had an odd texture for a dental dam.

Due to this, I checked my condoms and several have expired. An expired condom is a very sad sight.
When do your condoms expire?

What do you think is a sad sight, perhaps irrationally?

Where have my housemate's eyebrow and nose rings gone?

EDIT: WHat can I do with 8 or so expired condoms, some flavoured?

I collect pepsi points to download music.

And EVERYBODY used to collect marlboro miles or camel dollars back in the day.

edit: nope cigs not food. But they are tasty. my mind was rambling.


So, this case has featured pretty heavily in the news here. For tl;dr, a guy follows a girl into her friends' apartment (she was visiting) and forces them into sex acts (at knife point), and a girl dies when she falls off a balcony trying to escape. Her bf falls too, but he survives. Two others managed to lock themself into a bed/bathroom.

We were discussing this at uni today and someone mentioned that at least the sex acts were with her boyfriend, better than a stranger, which sparked discussion.

TCQ, if by some horrible stoke of luck, touch wood and all, you were forced to have sex for some crazed, high, knife-wielding person, would you rather it be with someone you know (that is, your SO), or a stranger?
