TQC, my mum came downstairs bellowing at me to go to bed, because she thought it was half three. I pointed out it was 12.05 and she went away. When was the last time you were vindicated? Doesn't it feel goooood?

I am getting 2 girly guinea pigs next week. I really want to call then Ines and Mathilde, and I have no idea why. What should I call them? Bonus points for French/Spanish inspired names.

Lastly, have you suffered because of your name? My name rhymes with frigid OH HOW FUNNY.

I know, I just made fun of someone else's drama... but when you have been hanging out and talking to someone until 4 in the morning, texting constantly, admitting that there's a 'vibe' which could lead to 'something more' - basically getting along great - and then saying, "I'm sorry, I just need more time"...

Wtf. Someone please translate this from man into woman for me. Did I dodge the bullet? Or should give him some space, but still keep trying?

has anyone tried these? they're keebler dipping delights cookies in cheesecake flavor.



i want to try them SO BADLY, but every time i go to the grocery store (5 so far..) they either don't carry them or they are out. what do i do? are they as delicious as i think they'd be?

if you don't know: what's your favorite sandwich cookie? i like golden oreos.

At work and especially any time I post pictures in a community, I get a comparison to this one lady, who I had to google to find out who she was, and I really don't see the comparison.

I don't think she's that pretty, so I don't really think I'm being complimented, and I really don't see the resemblance beside the fact that we both obviously bleach our hair.

Should I take this as a compliment?
Is this too ludicrous to even take seriously?

I work at a bar and grill. It's a good job but I have one problem. I get free lunch (woo!) but everything I eat is really unhealthy. I'm talking 4 times a week eating things out of the fryer, any sandwich I make has cheese, bacon and mayo (and veggies but still), I can't eat salad without ranch. Basically, I like tasty food but I am preparing myself for a heart attack before 30 doing this I'm sure.
I don't think I'd be able to not eat there, because by the time I'm done work I'm starving. Also I'd hate to pay money to eat lunch somewhere healthier when I get free food.
So basically my question is, do you have any recommendations for unique food that doesn't involve artery clogging deliciousness, but is still tasty? I'm looking for a new idea, a weird combination I've never tried before. Options are most sandwich meats (turkey, chicken etc), different breads/buns, salads, dressings (italian, french, ranch, ceasar), and a few veggies (the ones i like are peppers, cucumbers, tomatoes, carrots).

If you could dye your hair any unnatural colour, what would it be? Or if it is dyed what colour is it right now? Mine's blue right now and I want pink, but the blue will not budge even with bleach.

tqc, i went to a party friday night. there was a guy named chris there. i thought he was the chris that added me on facebook a while back. i just found out that he actually isn't and i feel REALLY stupid right now. i think the worst part is i've actually hung out with this guy a number of times and didn't figure this out until now.

Hi TQC!

When you're dealing with a painful situation, are you the type that cries and sits around sadly or the type that looks as if everything was alright but you cant sleep, cant eat, and feel sick?

If you're the last type, have you ever got health problems because of this?

Also: I am the last type but I don't think this is healthy. Do you have a clue how I can change it? I cant manage to cry! I have difficulties with that. I just feel like I was horribly sick.

And last: if you've ever heard of this or know people like this, tell me your experiences or what you've heard?

Thanks!

What, if anything, do you say to yourself when you look in the mirror?

Today, I told myself "Hey, you look pretty good!" Usually, though, I just stick out my tongue or make a silly face. Lame, I know, but it makes me laugh and puts me in a good mood for the rest of the day.

my father and two grandparents died this summer, and ever since, money has been falling into my bank account so ridiculously quickly, it's absurd. at the same time, im also going through crazy depression and my desire to spend money is at an all time low. yesterday, another random two grand showed up in my wallet, and my mother is begging me to spend some money on myself. i can't really travel because i dont want to be away from family or friends yet, and i dont live on my own so i have no house to furnish. when i told my mom i just intended on spending all of this money on my friends for AMAZING christmas presents, she said not to and to do something for myself. yes, i know i should put lots away in savings, but i think my mom is right and i should splurge just a little.

what do you think i splurge on?

And an unrelated question - using flammable shoe glue I have fixed fake jewels to the outside of a 3-inch pillar candle. Do you think it is likely that the glue will catch on fire and/or the jewels will melt? I'm willing to take the risk, obviously, but have you had experience with something like this before?

EDIT: think i answered my own question. the glue can withstand heat up to 150 degrees before ignition. the outside temperature of a candle of this diameter does not reach 150 degrees. what is more likely to happen (i am theorizing) is the glue will soften as it increases in temperature and the jewels will slowly slide down the candle.

How does someone become less shy and, in particular, get better conversational skills?

I've always been pretty quiet around most people, even good friends. Last weekend I visited my friends for the first time in months and I feel like I'm losing the little bit of ability that I had to connect with them. My life's not very interesting right now, so there's not much to talk about with that, and I'm not particularly well-read IMO, so I can't really have a conversation about philosophy or politics or many things that require a lot of prior knowledge.

did you ever sing songs that made fun of barney in school? i remember two off the top of my head:

joy to the world
barney's dead
we barbecued his head
what happened to his body?
we flushed it down the potty
and 'round and 'round it goes
and 'round and 'round it goes
and 'rou-OUND and 'ROU-ou-ound and 'round it goes


another one went like this:

i hate you
you hate me
let's gang up and kill barney!
with a gun to his head and blood on the floor
no more purple dinosaur!


i guess this mostly applies to people born in the mid-to-late '80s, because when we were 7ish to 10ish it was really cool to make fun of barney.

My cousin passed away on halloween.  I am very upset about this, and my husband has been wonderful..he just returned from a long trip (2 weeks on business) and has been a comfort.

Here is dilemma:  Cousin's funeral is on Thursday in MI.  I live in Texas.

If I go, I have to miss 2 1/2 days of work no matter how I schedule my flights.  It will also cost me $800 for just myself, $1600 for both my husband and I.

I want to go to be there for my family and to say goodbye.

But I miss my husband and want him to be here with me and I want to spend as much time with him as possible before he leaves again for work (another 6 day trip on Monday).  And it is too expensive to send both of us.  I also would use up all the rest of my vacation and make it hard/impossible to visit my family on Thanksgiving and on Christmas, and take a trip we had planned with my in-laws for February.

What should I do?  What would you do?

Am I selfish?

3. We have silverfish in our kitchen. Hella gross. I get squicked out looking stuff up online about bugs, so TQC, would you be so kind as to summarize for me: Are silverfish really bad or are they just annoying? Anything I can do to get them out of our apartment? And when I squish 'em with a paper towel, why is there nothing there? DO THEY HAVE CLEAR BLOOD?! Because I squished one of those annoying gnats on the counter and holy crap, there was a lot of blood/bug goo, but I squish a silverfish that's a million times bigger and there's nothing there.

Hypothetical situation:
A passenger has been on an overcrowded bus (like Greyhound, not transit) for three hours. Their stop is 20 minutes away. They're deathly allergic to peanuts - even the smell can give them a reaction. You sit down in front of them and open a bag of peanuts and start stuffing your face, when you are tapped on the shoulder by the person behind you. They politely explain the situation and ask if you can wait 20 minutes to finish them.

Dear TQC,

Will you tell me a story about some serious crazy that you've witnessed?

About a couple of years ago, my then-partner and I were woken up at 5am by the lady across the road. She kept setting off her car alarm and then screaming at it to shut up, before turning it off, waiting a minute, then setting it off again. At 6am, she took a plank of wood, went to her neighbour's, and smashed in all their windows, then called the police, claiming they'd been harassing her for the past three hours (they'd been asleep, of course). When the police came, she started crying, then called her boyfriend to tell him the policeman was harassing her. Her boyfriend turned up, and it turned out he was a white supremist, who started shouting at the police officer (who was Maori) to get the f*** away from his woman. The police officer arrested them both, but the woman returned to her house about four hours later and amused herself by hauling her stereo outside, positioning it to face the neighbour's house, and playing "I Will Survive" on loop and at full volume.

The next day she wandered into our house and stood in our lounge for a while before we asked her (MOST POLITELY, 'cause we didn't want all our windows smashed at 6am) to please leave.


(yes, I know she was probably seriously mentally ill, but it was still some wicked crazy. Also, the woman was a complete drama queen, and this was just a couple of steps up from her usual antics)

Out of curiousity

Who did you vote for / will you vote for / would you vote for? (if for some reason or another that you cant vote.)

Did you vote straight?

Was this a little unnecessary and should I have told her something in return?"
I voted this past Thursday and it was my first time (YAY!) so the old lady asked me if I had any questions. I told her no and she asked if it was my first time AGAIN and I told her yes. Well, then she said: "Well of COURSE you have questions..." and she went off on this long winded explaination of how to vote. (aaahah) So, when she was done she specifically told me NOT to vote straight because only un-intelligent people vote straight and that both parties have their negative sides. I gave her this "Wtf are you serious?" face and she just shuffled away to the next person in line. I didn't know whether to slap her or report her.

You have a friendly acquaintance in one of your current classes. She has a series of unfortunate events that keep her out of class for more than a week (3 classes). She has asked for a copy of your handwritten notes, so she can potentially not fail the midterm this Thursday. You oblige, and say that you'll make copies of what she missed, but warn her that you take a ton of notes, and we'll be talking more than 10 pages of xeroxed hand written notes. She says that's great and says she will reimburse you for your costs. You think that's fair.

Things to consider: When all the notes are copied, it is 18 pages.
These pages were photocopied at your home and on your home copier, so there is no "set cost" as there would be in a copy place so
your paper and your ink were used exclusively.


Here is the question: How much would you charge your friendly acquaintance for 18 copies, made at your home?

I realize this could have been avoided entirely had I just gone to a copy store and paid out of pocket and then gotten a receipt and paid back. Just seemed like too much trouble... and it's raining.

Predictions!

[OK, my one and only political question of the season.]

So, with one day left, what do you think the results will be for the U.S.presidential election?

Here are the categories:

- Electoral vote (538 total)
- Number of states won (51 total with DC)
- Percent of the popular vote (100 total, obviously)

For each, list your prediction for Obama, McCain and the others.

If I feel especially motivated, I'll try to keep track of who comes closest.

(OK, I have a spreadsheet going [geek that I am.] The popular vote will be calculated by taking the difference between the actuals for Obama, McCain and "the others" and dividing by 3. This will probably take a few days after the election until most of the absentees are counted.)

Do you ever feel a need to prove how sick you are when you're missing a lot of work? Not anyone pressuring you per se, but just feeling lame for being out so much? Why/why not?

No matter what happens tomorrow, aren't you going to be so glad all this election crap is over with? Y/Y

What do you do when you are stuck at home, sick for numerous days?

Why is everyone acting like I am a bad person for not wanting to stay up until Wednesday 5 a.m. CET to get the results of the election when I have to be at work at 8 and have a major test that night?

Does it make me a bad American to not watch the election coverage?

Guilt

What is something you've done recently that you feel guilty about?

I've been depressed lately so I've been shopping to make myself feel better, and I don't have the money to. I usually tell my mom I need $$ because I spent it on gas or something, but usually, I just spent it on a new sweater. She loves me :(

My boyfriend is playing his xbox very loudly. I'm trying to watch Mad Men with headphones on. I can hardly hear what people are saying despite having it almost at full volume.

I should leave him and get my own apartment, correct?

CNN is reporting that Obama's grandmother kicked it.

Do you think this is part of a left-wing conspiracy to gain sympathy for Obama/remind people that he is, in fact, part white?

Can I vote?

So, I'm a retard. Hi.

I am registered to vote ... in my maiden name. When I went to the DMV/SOS to change my name after I got married, I never registered to vote in my new name.

Can I still vote? :( The address on my voter's card matches my current license... the only difference is the last name. =\ Wahhhh.

EDIT: Thank you, Sunow, for the link! I AM REGISTERED (I guess I did register under my new name lol)!!! yay :D:D:D:D:D:D:D:DDDD

Lost keys

I just lost my keys somewhere in a 4 acre athletic field park while playing with my dog.  Now it's dark and I have no idea where they are in there.  I have to be at work tomorrow at seven (sunrise is 6:22).  Any clever ideas on how I can find my keys before tomorrow?

My husband says that I broke our dryer by running dry clothes in them to dewrinkle them. Now it squeals ridiculously loudly and is annoying the piss out of me.

TQC, did I break the dryer y/n?

bed bugs?

Do bed bug bites itch?

I have these little marks on me that look like mosquito bites but aren't. They don't itch or anything. My boyfriend suggested they were bed bug bites or that I was allergic to something. They are only on my neck, chest, and stomach. He doesn't have any of the marks if they are from bed bugs ... but I guess maybe he isn't allergic if that is what they are.

If you have had bed bugs before tell your story.

What are some fun online games that require thinking? (Ie. The impossible quiz)

Also I know there used to be a website where you try to figure out how to get to the next site by doing things like turning on a light, translating codes, changing the url, etc. I want to say something like nimball or something? Anybody know?

alright, so, there's this kid in my school who i liked for pretty much the whole year last year, and recently found out that he "sort of" likes one of my friends. because of this, i decided to bring up last year and eventually, through much of his pleading, told him all about liking him and blah blah blah. TODAY, i find out that he told people, including some i SPECIFICALLY didn't want to find out, everything i had said. i am REALLY ANGRY because i feel that he had no right to spread this around, considering the only reason i told HIM in the first place was because he told me "not to feel awkward."

i'm justified in being angry, right? and...how do i let him/the people he told know that i'm not okay with them talking about me behind my back?

there is this person in my dorm (he is a friend of a friend) who constantly refers to himself as "indie and pretentious" and talks about how he's "the biggest wannabe hipster ever". then, whenever he tells you about any instance in his life he says, " I know you're jealous".

he also talks about his love for Hemingway every single time I hear him speak and is frequently found hiding in trash cans.

Do you have a severe phobia?

Have you ever gotten over a severe phobia?

- I have harbored this desire to become a midwife forever, but I'm terrified of IV drips & I'm not sure I could take blood. It's the only thing holding me back (the extra 3 years of school after completing an English degree isn't all that great but it's really what I want to do) Am I crazy for thinking I could ever get over something that's been with me for so long?

What do you desire?

Getting Called a Racist.

Are any of you (online or not) getting called a racist for Voting for McCain? I have had both races (online and not) called me a racist. I sometimes think that those who judge also fall under the category or racists. Just me I guess....
