2 questions! do colleges/universities generally do inter-library loans? if you go to one SUNY school, can you check out books at another SUNY school?

new question: now that i have access to a lot more books, can you recommend some good ones? i like harry turledove, dan brown, douglas adams, etc.

clams on the half shell and roller skates, roller skates....seriously? WTF?

OK, sorry, I don't really know the song but it was on the radio today and I thought the line was funny. I honestly assumed that more people would know the song the line is taken from "Good Times" by Chic it was, apparently, done in like 79 or 80 here is the verse it's from-
A rumor has it that
It's getting late
Time marches on
Just can't wait
The clock keeps turning
Why hesitate
You silly fool
You can't change your fate
Let's cut a rug
A little jive and jitterbug
We want the best
We won't settle for less
Don't be a drag
Clams on the half shell
And roller-skates

Which is your favorite country based on shape?
I think I like Turkey's shape best.

After a shower, do you prefer to be clean or squeaky clean?
(that's not to say one is cleaner than the other. just a matter of touch)
I prefer squeaky.

Oh dear TQC, help me!

I made a cake with ganache on it. It's a round cheesecake and right now I have it sitting on a plastic round sort of thing. I need to transport it tomorrow, how can I cover it? I don't want to do saran wrap because the ganache would get all over it, and aluminum foil would present the same problem. Also I don't have any tupperware containers that size/shape.

the store? (ie makeup, clothing, bath soap/gel, and so on)

What did you make? How did you make it? Have any pictures you want to share?

Have you ever made your own lipstick or eyeshadow? I just found a kit online for $40 to make lipstick and it seems fairly cheap for making 20 tubes, but I'm afraid the end result isn't gonna be very good :\


I need to buy myself a new vacuum. I don't even know where to begin- I live in a 1 bedroom apartment, with wood floors, tile, and a fairly large area rug. I need a vacuum that works well for all of those. I have about a $100 budget.

So, TQC, what's your favorite vacuum?
i say, old bean

So I saw this thread. I do not know much about breeders and the general ethics of dog breeding.

1. What are the breeds in a Maltipoo? Maltese and Poodle

2. What is the problem with a 'mutt' breeder vs. a 'purebred' breeder? Aren't purebreds susceptible to all sorts of congenital defects that mutts aren't?

3. Are all mutt breeders terrible people, or just maltipoo? Which kind of mutt breeders are ok?

4. Are the people in that thread being dog racists by association?

5. What constitutes 'improving the breed'?

6. Is this eugenics for dogs?

I'm learning so much about the world of dog breeding.

Say that someone you used to be friends with wronged you in your past, to the point that you moved hundreds of miles away to get away from the backstabbing and drama that came with that situation, and all the people involed - you've deleted their phone numbers, deleted them from your facebook/myspace, and generally want nothing to do with any of them ever again. Say that months after you've moved, one of the two main co-conspirators friend requests you on FB, with a message that makes it sounds like she's forgotten anything ever happened between the two of you.

Do you hold a grudge and ignore it, or do you accept it? If you accept it, are there any conditions (i.e. you put them on your limited profile list or something)? Why did she even do this in the first place?

Are you generally the type that holds grudges, or are you a "forgive and forget" kind of person?

I'm feeling particularly sad today. So I want to do my hair and make-up to make myself feel perdy and boost my spirits. Problem is, my hair has two styles: straightened or in a ponytail.

What should I do with my hair? It's a shoulder-length grown-out pob, at the moment, and going to the stylish isn't an option today (she doesn't work again until monday)

Will you give me some good suggestions for a new hairstyle? Bonus points if you have step-by-step instructions for it.

should I go to work today? I had a day off yesterday but I hate my job and the idea of going today makes me angry. I also have not gone more than two hours once in the last three weeks without thinking "I'm just going to walk out and quit." I imagine if I go today, it will be that day.
Also, I originally got this job to pay the bills while I looked for a better job.
I'm only allowed three days out in a six month period before a formal meeting or some bullshit. This would be my second in less than two months.
Tell me NO so I don't feel like a slacker.

Does anyone have any idea where I could buy scents? I am wanting to make bath bombs as Christmas presents and I am looking for fruity and citrus-y scents. I dont want to use aromatherapy oils as they are all a bit flowery and herby, though ill probably use lavander, but I really want something zingy. I dont think I could use actual lemon or orange juice....... do you think zest would work? or would it go also wanting strawberry/apple/black currant type smells. ideas anyone?

I usually send a check to St. Jude's every month, but their phone calls are getting out of hand and I'm considering cutting them off. I've asked them repeatedly not to call, and said that I'd continue making donations via the web or snailmail, but it hasn't gotten through to them yet.

There are plans for a fake-Thanksgiving meal next weekend since we will not be in the country on the actual holiday. Now, TQC, this isn't going to be a huge affair, just a few people (8, tops). Would it be super tacky to get paper plates (the Thanksgiving or fall themed ones) instead of our standard, everyday Corelle?

Okay, there's a picture behind the cut of a dish pattern.

1. Are you a "damn no good liar"?

2. Last pinata question, I promise! Target has some pinatas I like, but they seem to be completely stuffed with paper. How the fuck would I go about getting all the paper out? The whole is only big enough for like 4 of my fingers so I'm not sure how I would get all of it out of the bottom. I don't want to end up with a half candy/half paper pinata.

I got a text message a few minutes ago from a number I didn't recognize (but the area code is my city, so there's a chance its someone I know) saying "what will yu do if i was in yer room, on yer bed. naked ? send to everyone in yer phone dhat is a freak nd cwhat freakie message yu quet back."

So I wrote back "Since I don't know you, it would probably involve mace in your eyes and me hitting you with a bat. But hey - whatever gets you off."

He/She texted me again said it was "mine bad" and asking if I was a girl or a boy.

Should I continue texting him/her? I have some good comebacks in mind, but I'm also considering that it could be a bad idea to mess with them since they have my phone number/the ability to call me at 4 a.m. and wake me up.

do you, or have you ever, worked with someone who complains ALL THE TIME??

My co-worker has a problem with every one and every thing and feels the need to turn to me and complain every 15 minutes. (i.e. someone comes in to ask her a question about benefits, she rolls her eyes and gets mad when they leave, says they are stupid, or they are annoying, etc.... meanwhile she is the Benefits Administrator)

What should I say to her about this to get her to stop? Sometimes when I say things like this to people they come off really mean and I don't want to offend her... but seriously I'm ready to flip out!!!!

Scooping cat litter options

I always used plastic grocery bags for dirty cat litter and would throw that away. But now I'd like to stop doing that as the stores are using less and less of the plastic bags so I don't get them as much as I used to.

Any other options for disposing of the dirty litter? I'm not talking about emptying the entire litter box, just the dirty clumps that is done on a more daily basis. Something to put the dirty litter into from the litter bos to the trash, and also so it's somewhat enclosed in a bag or something so it's less stinky.

I have to clean the litter box out every other day.

So I went and bought some knitting needles and some yarn and sat down to learn how to do it, and I'm starting to wonder if maybe I'm stupid because I absolutely do not think I am doing it right. I watched a video on how to get started with a long tail cast on and I did everything it said. Then, it said, "And now pull through." And my brain exploded.

I know I can google (and have, hence finding the video, and I also have been looking on Craftster), but I want to know what worked for you guys. So.

Do you have any links to sites to learn how to knit? I have a small book but it is not super helpful, either.

Have you tried Pomegranate flavored Tootsie Pops? They are delicious, you should.

The presents my boyfriend and I ordered for our anniversary finally arrived today (there was a delay in shipping, or something, so they didn't make it here for our anniversary - 3 weeks ago).

At the moment, I've hidden them in our bed, to suprise him when he gets home. Plus, our housemate is out for the night.

But, I could equally suprise him by hiding them in my handbag, picking him up for work, and taking him out to dinner.

What should I do? Wait til he gets home and lure him to our bedroom, or pick him up and suprise him with turkish and gift?

I might just chalk this up to cats being crazy, but I suppose that I should ask.

Almost every time before my cat starts eating, she will paw at the wall right above her dish. No matter where her bowl is, she'll do this. Keep in mind that we've only had her for about a month, and have no idea where she was before that.

What do you think TQC?

Also take into mind that I've already taken the higher level creative writings (it won't matter either way, as I love to write). I need a 3000 or 4000 level elective and both are 3000.

Bra question

So, tqc, I bought this bra a couple weeks ago and I just realized something today - on the inside of it there are pockets. At first I didn't notice them, but today I accidentaly saw it. It's, as I said, on the inside and covers about half of the cup on the lower side.

Did the manufacturers actually make this for me to stuff my bra?
Or do the pockets have an entirely different purpose, unknown to me?

Asking for a friend:

My friend just brought her dog to the vet.  They said his health was great except that he has tarter buildup on his teeth.  The vet told her he needed his teeth cleaned because supposedly the buildup of plaque under his gums will cause some of the plaque to break off and slowly block blood flow to his kidneys causing them to shut down in his old age.  They're charging an insane amount of money to get his teeth cleaned.

My questions for anyone would be:
1. What is the vet talking about with plaque causing his kidneys to shut down? Is any of it true?
2. If he does need his teeth cleaned, do I need to do it professionally or can I do it with over-the-counter dog toothpaste and bush and just try to do it regularly?
3. If he absolutely needs his teeth cleaned professionally, what is the ballpark figure for expense?
4. Do I just need a second opinion?

ETA:  My friend would like me to mention that my dog is only 4 and has never had his teeth brushed and this is the first time anyone has ever mentioned needing to have his teeth cleaned.

Edit: The fact that I wrote 1935 instead of 1835 just proves my point, right?

You are being forced to convert to a religion. If you are already religious, it has to be something different from what you practice. If you are an atheist, it can be any religion. Which do you choose?

ETA: If you are agnostic, it has to be a specific religion.

tell me what insight you would like about a hypothetical!

You are browsing through a musty used book store when you find a back room concealed by a crimson curtain. You slip into the room and notice that the only light is coming from the candles placed on a table in the center of a room next to a crystal ball. "Hello," says a voice behind you, and you jump in your skin, startled. You turn to see an elderly woman dressed in vibrant colors sitting in the corner, smiling. "This, my dear, is the Magical What If Orb of Amazingness," she explains. "You may ask it any one 'what if' question about the world and it will answer you with vivid images of a world that could be." She gestures toward the orb. "Try it," she says.

Are two bunches of hair on either side of the head "pigtails" ONLY if the hair is braided?

Yes. Hair must be braided for the term "pigtails" to be used.
No. "Pigtails" can just be two ponytail-like things, no braiding necessary. Note that this option does not exclude braiding--just doesn't require it.
No. "Pigtails" ONLY refer to two NON-BRAIDED groupings of hair, one on either side of the head.
I don't like any of your options so I'm going to comment with what I think "pigtails" are.

Can one wear pigtails at, say, the age of 19?

No. Pigtails do not belong on non-children.
I don't like any of your options so I'm going to comment with an answer.

How pissed would you be if you purchased a ticket through Orbitz to get on a United Airlines flight and United wouldn't give you your ticket so you missed your flight and when you call Orbitz they say you were supposed to be on that flight but United still won't put you on another flight? 1=I'd be okay with that; 10=I'd be spitting venom.

I fail at the google.

Dr. TQC! (or, researchers of TQC!, whichever you prefer)

In the little pamphlet I have in my pack of birth control, it says:


2) Contact Lenses

If you wear contact lenses and notice a change in vision or an inability to wear your lenses, contact your doctor or health care provider."

I googled until my brain hurt to try and find out why this is/what causes this side effect, but to no avail. I don't wear contacts, so it's not a life/death situation, but I am insatiably curious....

TQC, why would birth control cause a female to not be able to wear her contacts?

Do you know anyone that is dying of cancer right now?

My MIL called me and said her sister has cancer. Found a mass in her butt today.
Then, I went outside and my neighbor was all hysterical - her mother is dying of cancer and they were leaving to go say their goodbyes.

TWO! In like an hour. I'm so paranoid I have the cancer now.
