has anyone else seen the duchess of duke street? i'm watching the miniseries(bbc first aired it in 1976) on netflix, and i know the description is boring but it is just marvelous!

(plus, it's full of odd cameos- bridget jones' mother, the weird looking guy who loses the drinking contest to marion in raiders of the lost ark, the horny old major in keeping up appearances, one of the house-servants in ever after, et cetera.)

What are some of your minor compulsions?

When I drink out of a cup, I never put my lips on the same place for the next sip. Also, when I eat french fries, I discard one end of each fry back into the pile (when I was much younger I'd throw out both ends, holding it like corn on the cob and eating the middle).

TQCers, it is 5:33am est and for the past half hour, all I have thought about is loaded mashed potatoes. I want them, I crave them, I NEED THEM! I don't even have potatoes and don't want to wake up the whole house by giving in and going to the store to procure said potatoes and making them so that I can them devour them directly from the stand mixer bowl like some sort of crazed animal. D:

What do you want that you can't, in the sake of sanity, have right now? We can wallow in our delicious loaded mashed potatoes suffering together!

Update! As of 6:30am, I nuked a small Lean Cuisine 3 Bean Chili and used it as dip for a handfull of Cool Ranch Doritos (lol, what a fatty!) - it should hold me over until dinner when I have VALID EXCUSES REASONS to make my beloved smashed taters!

STDs

Do they really spell the end of your sex life? If you have one, when do you approach the topic with a potential partner? This is all academic for me as it's been seven years since anyone has seen my naughty bits, but I've always been curious. Ever since they started advertising treatments on TV, I've wondered.

I'm making a half-assed attempt at nanowrimo like I do ever year. Thing is, this time I have book-planning software, and it seems to be working. I've got my spec fic groove on. For those of you who write, what do you write?

Gap jeans?

I'm on the hunt for a new pair of jeans, as I can't find my favorite jeans anywhere anymore :( :( kri kri. I'm looking at, and have a question regarding the fit of, Gap jeans, if any of you have tried them!

Since Gap and Old Navy are owned by the same company, I am wondering:

1. if the sizes are as wonky at Gap as they are at ON? The one pair of jeans I have from ON are two full sizes smaller than what I usually wear.

2. if GAP jeans stretch out/lose their shape as quickly/badly as ON jeans? After an hour or two I have to pull the ON jeans up just so they'll stay on my ass, and I have plenty of ass to hold jeans up normally!!


The GAP jeans I'm looking into atm are the Classic Boot Cut jeans and the Long & Lean jeans.


Thanks for any insight anyone might have :)

Computer screen issue

There is a single thin light blue bar that runs across my computer screen vertically. Can someone tell me what it means? Can someone also tell me how to get rid of it? I'm on a MacBook pro bought in July. I am currently on the Windows XP side of my laptop so I do not know if it is on my Mac side. I have a feeling it is.

Edit: I was finally able to switch over to the Mac side and I can still see the blue line.

Alright, so, I'm 21. I went to a party the other day and ended up making out with my Stage Manager from Halloween Horror Nights. HHN is over, so he's technically not my boss anymore and there's really nothing wrong with it (or him). I had a good time and found it a little exciting.

The kicker is, he's taking me out on a date next week.

Oh, and he's 42.

What's your take on that? Should I go through with it and see where this whole thing leads or is that just too creepy? It doesn't bother me that much, but I've certainly thought about it.

So...creepy? Or exciting?

Inspired by this question and some of the answers.

Hypothetical scenario: You meet someone through friends and really get along. You have a lot of common interests and enjoy hanging out. You start to date. They reveal that they have herpes. What do you do?

Same scenario this type, they say they have HIV. What do you do?

Last question: Would you rather be involved with someone who has an incurable STD (but not something that would damage their health otherwise, so herpes as an example) or someone who has been divorced twice and has four kids? YOU MUST CHOOSE ONE.

Okay, you know how some books will have a little seal on the cover to show off that they won a particular award? I'm at my part-time job right now, and was putting books in inventory, when I came across this book that proudly announces it was "short-listed" for a certain award.

Collapse )

Would you ever put a seal on a book saying that you didn't win, but you totally could have? Is anyone else laughing over this?


Ok, since I wasn't aware that the Booker prize is a huge deal, I'm going to just scratch that and ask a new question!

What is weather like where you are today?

2. How is it that said husband doesn't know how to clean the litter box and didn't notice that SMELL in his room?

3. Why does this shit always happen when he's out of town for the weekend?

Our cat notified me of the litter box problems by peeing on a blanket this morning. I've spent the past two hours or so cleaning my whole house while muttering, "I'm going to kill him!" and "What a fucking moron!". Said cat right now if curled up on my lap being all cute and apologetic.

Doom's day question time

Assuming one perfectly nice sunny day you feel an earth tremor and shortly after all power and communications suddenly go out. Soon ash starts falling from the sky (not real heavy but enough to pile up about an inch or so an hour) and the only thing you can tell is what direction the ash is coming from, lets say north. Driving will stir up more ash that can clog engines and stall vehicles so leaving in your car is out.

In this situation what do you think you would do?

directly inspired by poo's coffee post.

You say you've never had a cup of coffee? How can that be?

For those of us who are coffee drinkers, when did you start? I was 15 when I became a regular coffee drinker. It went along with having a job at a cafe.

Does having a cup of coffee make you need to um, see a man about a horse?

My parents are pretty well off, but not overly so. We've never struggled for money, but had to save up for those multiple holidays a year- I feel pretty lucky, especially with the crisis going on at the moment my parents both have secure jobs.

My boyfriend and I are looking to move in together and whilst talking about our finances I was shocked to learn quite how much money his Dad makes. It's quadruple that of my parents put together.

So I was wondering, materialistically- are you set to do better than your parents?

For one of my job experiences on my resume, I worked there for 5 weeks, but I'm tempted to say that I was there for 2 months.

about chic items and texts...

Here is a phrase from a fashion text: "The handbags are in precious leathers with metal details taken from the bijoux, details that are recalled in the design and in the choice of materials on all accessories."

1. "The handbags are in precious leathers" -- it means they are made of "precious leathers"? I've stumbled over the "in" -- does it simply replace "made of" here?
2. "metal details taken from the bijoux," -- in what sense are the details "taken" from the bijoux? Like they chop off a piece of metal from the bijoux?:))) By the way, no bijoux get ever mentioned in the text apart from this phrase, so I am puzzled where "the" comes from...

But young Ariphrades is much
The brightest of the three:
In one respect, at least, he was
An infant prodigy.
They took him to a lady once
Who said that she could teach
Him twenty ways of making love
At half an obol each:
But when she'd taught him all she knew
(Or so his father swore),
He turned her upside down
And taught her twenty more.



What ways of sexing it out making love would have been on the list? I suppose it'll be like the "Top 40" or something... which positions way of making love would you vote to be on the Top 40?

My boyfriend's mom is going to give me her parrot Pancho! :D :D :D

ETA:  When I breathe in deeply or press on it, my stomach feels tight and hurts.  What is this, pregnancy, AIDS, death?

I have the news on right now and they're talking about Caylee Anthony. Her mother was indicted in September/October-ish for first degree murder, which sparked this debate:

Do you agree with charging and prosecuting someone for murder when there is no body, and thus no conclusive evidence of a murder taking place?

If you agree, why?

If not, how much of a body do you need to see before going forward? The whole thing? At least half of it? Is dental work left in a fire or a foot enough?

Has anyone here ever made frybread? Do you have any good recipes for it or know where I could buy some already made? (I'm craving it!)

How do you pronounce "syrup"? (I say see-rup, but I know a lot of people say sur-rup.)

What should I get my boyfriend for his birthday? (He loves 80s stuff, especially hair metal.)

Do you drink 8 glasses of water a day? If not, how many?

My doctor says I need to drink more, but I'm finding it really really difficult. Those of you who drink a lot of water - how do you do it?

Let me preface this by apologizing for posting so close together.

Three of my guy friends say I should just come out and ask this dude if I'm wasting my time with him ("because a dude will appreciate your straightforwardness"). Two of my girlfriends say nay to this idea ("because it seems pathetic").

What say TQC?

inspired by the post about the duggars:

I would like to have kids someday, no more than 2 or 3. I also want to be a foster parent.
Do you know anybody who takes care of foster children?
Do they also have their own children? If so, are they around the same age? I know sometimes people start fostering after their own children are grown, but that seems really far away. Do you think it would be difficult/problematic to have a household with foster children and biological children who are around the same age?

Have you ever seen MTV's show "Exiled" (where they send a spoiled girl to some remote/not-super-privliged area of the world and force her to live with a family there)?

Does it piss you off as much as it pisses me off? I really just want to reach through the teleivison and punch these girls in the face.


If you haven't seen it, or don't care, how long would it take YOU to write a 7-page paper?
