Is celebrating New Year something you actually care about?

What did you do last New Years?

Do you automatically assume you'll spend New Year with your other half?

can't sleep

WTF. I have not been able to find a pain medication that will help me with this back problem. You can read more about that here- http://community.livejournal.com/thequestionclub/50772154.html

First I tried a combination of Advil, Tylenol, and aspirin. No go. Same with darvocet, ultram, hydrocodone, and xanax. (not a combination of! taken separately of course) Even tried morphine, which killed the pain, but I had a reaction so apparently I'm allergic to it. Will be able to pick up a script of somas tomorrow, maybe that will do the trick...

Will I be in pain forever? I'm going to the doctor this week and I'm afraid that I've already run through all the pain medication. :-(

TQC, I have badly injured myself and I do not know how it happened. My neck is jacked up and the doc says it's almost like bad whiplash... but I don't HAVE whiplash. I figure it probably happened in my sleep though he's doubtful and KEEPS ASKING how it happened! BUT IDK.

So will you give me some suggestions for a wild story I can tell him to explain my neck pain?

TQC, hold me

Hay guys:

Please hold me. I am VERY scared about the American Election, I dreamt last night that Mc Cain won and there were people protesting in the streets and egging his car. He had a nice black Rolls Royce lol.

I told my mother I was very worried and she was saying "you're always so agitated idk" but I am scared! Please hold me tqc, and tell me:

Am I the only foreigner/Romanian-Canadian who is worried about this election?! Who else is worried around the world/in Canada and the USA?

And do you think it's fair that they don't even seem to count advance/absentee ballots? Do you think the turnout for this election will be a record turnout?

I SO HOPE IT'S A RECORD TURNOUT.

Hi TQC!

I heard lots of european countries would prefer Obama to win. In the german version of Facebook but only for students, Obama wins 85%, for example.

What do you think of this?

For Americans: Does it make you think about your choice? If so, what?

This doesn't happen with other countries. People don't care as much who's president in France if they're not french. Does this make you feel something about the role the US plays in the world?

Have you ever thought, since the US president has so much power to mess around in the world, that other countries should have a bit of a saying on who is the president of the US? (EDIT: this question only for not US people, please)

My friend is gonna love what I tell her about these answers. Make my friend happy, please.

Can we actually have a political-charged topical dicussion without arguing with each other? Should we see if we can do this without starting a debate?

So let's say that you are given your work schedule on a Saturday for the following week, which begins on Monday and will end the following Sunday. Your work schedule says that you work on Monday from 12am to 4am. Would you think that you would work that Monday morning from 12am to 4am or what is considered Monday night which is technically Tuesday from 12am to 4am?

You see, I took it as early Monday morning 12am to 4am. I even asked the lady I was working with then to check it. She said it looked like it was that morning and I had it right, but the person I was supposed to be working with wasn't there and it could have been that night. So I called in the next morning to ask and the person I called looked and said I didn't have to because I was listed unavailable on Tuesday. Did 12am Tuesday suddenly become a Monday and I did not get the memo or are they in the wrong here??

For those of you who answered "yes" to any of the questions in this post:

Do you see the comparison between political beliefs and religious beliefs, that they are both personal beliefs that should be respected, regardless of why the person feels the way they do about what they believe? Before you argue that stupid beliefs lead to the elections of stupid presidents, did you ever stop and consider that the beliefs must not be all that stupid for the majority of a country of people to believe in them?

Does this poll make you rethink your answers to the previous poll?

How young is too young to talk to your kids about sex?


I think its never too early, personally. I think kids should be given truth. I'm not saying give them every juicy detail, but when they ask: "Where do babies come from?" at say, 3, I have no problem telling them, in a non-inappropriate way, where they come from. As opposed to: "From heaven!" or "The stork!" or what not. Why start a pattern of lying to your kids from day 1?

ETA no Canadians need to reply about Thanksgiving being a month ago! :p~~~


What's your favorite
inbred dog? (yes technically they all are but I mean extremes of "purebred" here) pedigreed extreme dog, such as super elongated like Dachshund, super wrinkley like Shar Pei, or super small like tea cup MINIATURE Poodles. (Technically all pedigreed dogs are inbred to keep certain features and expand on them over a "breeding program". This is how you go from something with clean lines like wild dogs/wolves to critters like a Pug. When dogs breed on their own they tend to go back to a more "original" form.)
As a hound lover I have to choose dachshunds and bassets as the best IMHO.

Thanksgiving! Whatcha doin' for it?
Already got my icon fixed up! You can thank twystedfate. Decorating with turkey items we've crafted of colored paper and Popsicle sticks. Staying home and having the requisite meal. Baked chicken, snack bowl (mixed nuts, pomegranates, etc), green beans, mashed potatoes and probably hot spicy tea. Breakfast that day will be pumpkin pie as per usual.

We just had giant fresh hot pretzels at the mall after I voted. What's your favorite pretz?
I like plain, salted and cinnamon best. Although I have had whole wheat and liked it.


After voting I asked where was my special thingie for voting, like sticker or wot. The old guy said they didn't have those this year, all the extra cash went to the bail out. HA! He peeked at my vote too the rascal.

I usually keep it in my purse because I play it at work while I'm on break (when I get a break).

It isn't in my purse! It isn't in my desk, on my desk, or under my desk. It isn't in my car.

So I thought maybe it fell out of my purse at home. I keep my purse in either the living room or the kitchen...so I looked...and as of right now...I'm not finding it. :(

I'm wondering if it possibly got stolen at the store one day...even though if I'm not with my purse when it is in the cart my husband is....

I am 99% sure no one at work would take it.

:(

Sigh...I miss my DS. If it is gone for good...what color should I get to replace it? I have/had the black one. The husband has the white one...

Which is your best side?

What are the steps of your skincare regime?
Is it working well for you?

What do you call the large unit that cooks your food?

Do you feel your life is too easy and thus boring sometimes?

-------------------------------------------------------------
1. Right

2. It used to be: Wash with soap. Dry with clean towel. But I've started to do a cleanser thing, and am supposed to use a toner and moisturiser and I think maybe this is just crazy shit someone made up to make people spend a lot of money. It's all new so I don't know if it's working well or not.

3. The oven, generally, because that's what makes up most of the mass of the unit.

4. Not with many things, but my aforementioned unit is now working again & I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't have more time where I had to be creative and make meals without it. (Last night I steamed veggies in the top of the rice cooker and had carrots, beans and tinned chickpeas on brown rice with soy sauce, it was quite surprisingly tasty).My life may have sucked a lot more when I was poor, but I did get to make meals out of the few ingredients I could get with my $4 that week, and inventing new ways to fix things with duct tape and string.

PARTS CAR JUST TOWED AWAY.

So anyone ever have a mechanic re-sell a broken / overheating car?


Ok, My situation :


The girlfriend had a 97 Pontiac sitting around for months. We tried Craiglist and 20 no-shows. I tried ebay and it was not effective at all.
So....
Im going to be charged 80 bucks about for 12 Miles of towing. My other part of the plan is to have them sell the car -for whatever it is worth (KBB I hope) and give me the difference it took to fix it. E.g. -$1200 They can sell it for -Minus the $600 it takes to fix the problem. That leaves me with 600 bucks but I dont mind. Think this is a good idea? The car is overheating and most parts were replaced. 203,000 on the car.

1. My aunt who lives in New Hampshire is voting Republican because she works for a defense contractor (aka they make war weapons), and she feels that as long as there is a war going on, she will have a job. She is usually very liberal. Is this... ethical?

2. Should I drink Chimay Bleu or Chimay Rouge tonight?

3. How do you, personally, get rid of those big, ouchy pimples that sit under the surface of your skin? If N/A, then fuck off.

Do you like when it is completely silent?

How sick do you have to be to go to the doctor?

Do you have a nickname? What is it?

Is your mail box attached to your house, out near the road or grouped with others?

Two states have already been called, so now the fun begins.

Would you like to have an "official" TQC election discussion post? Maybe? Perhaps it'll stop the influx of election questions also....
We swear we won't bash you for your opinions :D

So, um, if you want to discuss it, feel free to do it here. And if you don't want to discuss it, feel free to do that here as well.

Can you think of any juvenile lit that features a quirky child as a main character?

So far we have Ramona, Amelia Bedelia, Pippi Longstocking, Peter Pan, and a really great book by Stephen Hawking.

On a scale of 1-10 (1 being I am contently occupied and 10 being HOLY FUCK KILL ME NOW BOREDOM OVERLOAD), how bored are you?

Where do you go when you're lonely?
