go to a real estate website for your hometown.
how do they describe it?
do you agree?

here's mine:
"the feeling of living in a small town with all the amenities of "big city" living."
"attractive tree-lined streets" and "peaceful and well-maintained neighborhoods"
"a wide variety of home styles to select from including well constructed bungalows, historic homes with authentic craftsmanship, urban townhouses, newer condominiums, senior complexes as well as million dollar estates"

it's pretty true. i do live in a well constructed bungalow. on an attractive tree-lined street.


Who knew I would be so bad at typin when I'm wasted?

NZers are you happy or sad?

Who woulf you turn gay for?

That quesrion is nor just about NZers it is about for everyone.

I would probably do jessica aldba.

Why would none of the guys at the party hook up with me?

Am I that fugly?

TQC, What do you do to keep yourself from getting stressed at work?

I'm in retail. I'm a manager, though at the bottom of the manager totem pole. I've been getting really stressed out lately and it's resulting in me becoming bitchy. I don't like it. What can I do to keep myself from getting so stressed out?? It's my first holiday season as a manager, not to mention i'm also the only hiring coordinator for a HUGE store. EEK.

For some reason, you have to kill yourself right now. And I mean right now. Like, guarantee within 30 seconds that you will die. Looking at what's around you in order to do this, how would you do it?

For the record, I came up with my answer after typing up the question, I did not think about my answer ahead of time. I'd go for the letter opener in the drawer and probably go at the neck or something.

rring ring...

So - I go to charge up my new mobile yesterday, and it doesn't want to charge at all - I check the connections, change plugs - and get absolutely nothing, so I pacck it up and took it back today, the guy behind the counter plugs it in to test it, hey presto - it works perfectly, he tries it about 5 or 6 times, and it works every time, so I take it back home with me to charge tonight.

Get home, plug in - nothing, try several plugs and wiggling - still nothing...

My laptop doesn't work.
I need someone to please tell me why my internet sound just decided to stop working. Please! I can't hear Youtube and Hulu type videos. I have updated the flash and internet browsers. Itunes, winamp and zune and all other non internet sounds work. Yes, the volume on both the laptop and video are all the way up.

Pleeeeeeeeeeeeeease!! It's driving me crazy!

Winter fashion!

Am I stupid for spending 60 bucks on knee socks and arm warmers from here?

Skirt + knee socks + boots + t-shirt layered over long sleeve shirt + arm warmers + possibly hat and/or scarf and/or coat in case of freak blizzard = good outfit to survive a Texas winter in, yes? No? Contrary to popular belief, it does get pretty cold here. :/

Speaking of which, can anyone point me in the direction of cute skirts suitable for colder weather? All I'm finding on Google is frumpy stuff that looks like someone tied gray blankets about people's waists. I like medium length with a little flounce, any color.

TQC, I'm sitting here in my hotel room in West Drayton (London), and it costs 14.99 pounds per 24 hours to have not that great internet access in my room at the Crowne Plaza Hotel.

Is everything so absurdly expensive in England?

Do you think I'm actually going to go out and do touristy things or am I going to sit and watch British soap operas?

freecycle offer question

Am I allowed to be selective in who I give crap to on freecycle? 

Like, can I ask people for their sob stories and pick the one I like best?

Or is it more of a first-reply-gets-it-no-questions-asked?

(I want to give away my huge $100+ Christmas tree I got 2 years ago that is just a little too freakin' huge for my house.  There have been a few WANTED posts for Christmas trees - but they of course do not include any sob stories.)

Yesterday I got a text from a number I didn't know that said "text me." I responded with "uh, who is this?" and that was the end of the conversation.

Just now I got a call from another number I didn't know (same area code and first 3 digits as the other one) and answered... it was a woman demanding to know who I was, saying that "I don't know your number, you're in New Jersey and you called my daughter in *NORTH Carolina, who the hell are you?" lol. I was all, uhh, I never called anyone in North Carolina, I don't know anyone in North Carolina. She didn't believe me and demanded to know who I was, again. I said "Uhh, my name is Kathleen, yes my phone number is in New Jersey but I go to school in Georgia... I don't know what else you want to know." She demanded to know my last name, at which point I told her that I am not comfortable giving that information to anyone I don't know, and since I know neither her nor her daughter, there's nothing more I can tell her to help so goodbye, and I hung up. She's probably trying to dig up dirt on me, not that she'll find any, crazy bitch.

WTF, tqc??

(Also, how young is this girl that her mother needs to call and verbally abuse people whose numbers she doesn't know? If she's really THAT young, why the f does she have a cell phone in the first place...?)

Will you tell me about the last WTF???? moment you had?

In Yahoo's This Week in Photos there is a picture of some people holding up a sign that says "We have overcome." It's the fifth photo, I think.

I really need this picture. It's in a flash player slideshow thing, so I can't just save it. Is there a way to get it other than screen capture? Do you think there's a higher resolution copy out there somewhere? I tried Google image search, no luck. I'm sure Yahoo owns the hell out of it.

In the future I would like to take a course at my local college, which is on the quarter system, but I want to apply it to my degree at another institution which is on the semester system.

Do you think there is a chance they can work with me and arrange for the class to be worth the same number of units, by adding more coursework or special projects? Have you heard of anything like this before?

Edit: Classes converting from quarter to semester are divided by 1.5, classes converting from semester to quarter are multiplied by 1.5. see this unit converter tool from SFSU for reference.

TQC. My mom has decided to pay for me to get my hair cut at a nice salon when I'm visiting my hometown over Turkey Day week. My hairs are currently about 8 inches past my shoulders, with layers and long side-bangs. Should I cut it short (a little below my chin)? I was thinking choppy layers and shorter side-bangs... I cut it like that last fall but I don't have any good pictures.

Someday I'll be a flower

Back in the day....

Like 23 years ago, when I was in kindergarten, my mom used to send little notes with me to school in my lunchbox occasionally. They had maybe a watercolor picture of a baby animal/scene and a little text, or maybe a verse, and on the back, she would write something like, "Have a good day! Love, Mommy xoxoxo"

She got them, I believe, from Current Catalog, but I can't find anything like them. They were about the size of a business card, and didn't have an envelope. Any ideas where I can find something like this--just a tiny note?

Dear TQC,
I made my first deliciously successful grilled cheese today.
please acknowledge how epic this is because the last one I tried to make didn't even have the cheese all melty and gooey (which is what makes a grilled cheese worth eating in the first place) and because my cooking skills are limited to:

bowl+soymilk+special K = breakfast
pb+j= pbj
phone book+dial tone= pizza
bread+grill+cheese= well, you know.

what's the last thing you were proud to have accomplished or learned?

i'm trying my hardest not to call someone right now but 1) i want to talk to him, 2) a small part of me is worried that something happened to him because i haven't heard from him. will you please try to convince me not to call him?

i love escape games, do you have a favorite escape game? will you link to it or tell me the name so that i can find it?

i bought a box of 2 hot pockets the other day and thought i'd try them out. i'd never had one before and i really liked the convenience and the cardboard cooker/holder thing, hhaha, but the taste is totally not delicious. i'm done with hot pockets.

i've been pushing myself since 12:30ish not to call or text him and i'm growing more and more impatient.

I've written the introduction of an essay that is due tomorrow.

My back really hurts and I am sad because I have to take my dog to the vet tomorrow (to get a tumor removed) and my Dad called last night and he is in hospital in another country and there is nothing I can do to help him. I'm having a fair bit of trouble focusing.

Should I
a) write solidly for the next few hours and get the essay finished RIGHT NOW?
b) take a break, have a bath, and then get back to it when I might be in a better mood?
c) say fuck it, and write the essay tomorrow (due at 5pm)?

We don't get to "hang out" nearly as often as I'd like but I'm kind of mad at him. Well not mad, just disappointed in him, and I dread that it will turn into a heavy conversation about things I don't want to hear about. But he wants me to go over still. And if I don't then it will be like another week until I do, and I'll probably end up wishing I had.

Make my irrational girly decisions for me pls.

What's your M.O. for writing introduction paragraphs in papers?

I write the intro first, and then write the rest of the paper. Once I'm done do little to no changing of the intro.
I write an intro, then I write the paper, then I go back and make significant changes to the intro.
I don't start by writing an intro. Once I've finished the whole thing, I go back and write the intro.
Intros are for sissies.

Situation. You're writing a paper with a minimum page requirement. It must be double spaced. Do you:

Write the whole thing with it double-spaced
Write it normally, then apply double-spacing and see how much more you need to write

For a while, no one lived in the dorm room next to mine. Then someone moved in.
There are always huge banging noises coming from inside her room. Like...slamming furniture against a wall. She also often has her television on with the volume WAY up.

But today, about half an hour ago, I heard some really weird dog-like noises. I thought the noises were coming from outside.
But I listened more closely, and realized two things. First, they were coming from her room. Second, they were sex noises.

1. Do you think that the slamming noises and the loud television are the result of bizarre sex?
2. This is the first time I've ever heard other people having sex. (Yeah, I've been lucky.) This isn't a question. I just wanted to mention it.
3. Do you think she can hear me when I have sex?

Women want to be protected by a nice, strong man.

In your own opinion, is this true or false?

I'm not sure how easy it can be argued one way or another, its a very closed-minded statement. I know its definitely true for a lot of women, but I don't consider it true for myself. My dad is convinced, though, that I really do have the "instinct built in me" to want a man to protect me. The thought is lol-able to me. I actually don't even have an interest in romantic relationships. My own conscious decision, though. Not some form of psychological scarring. Though I know many would beg to differ.

- Ayumi (Yellow collar)
- Amaya (Red collar)

- Aki (Green collar)

- Ando (Blue collar)"

The heart. Is break.

So I just told a guy I had feelings for him and he told me he only wants to be friends with me because he isn't "mentally ready" for a new girlfriend because he recently broke up with his ex.

Will you tell me the story of how you were in the same position as I was but the guy (or girl) eventually came around and agreed to be more than friends? Or does this basically never happen?

Also, if I keep seeing him "as a friend" is it going to make him more likely to think of me first when he is ready for a relationship or am I just screwing myself?

Edit: He also wants the ball to be in my court on deciding whether we should keep hanging out, but I already decided I do want to, so should I preface our next meeting with something like "I'm sorry I put you in that position last time and I'm not going to try to pressure you into anything, I just really want to keep you in my life" or is that overkill?

I am going to be honest and say that I am an absolute idiot in the kitchen. I'm very bad at cooking unless I make things from a kit. I've been craving pot roast because everyone I know seems to be making it. I have a Crock pot, 2 pounds of chuck beef pot roast, Yukon potatoes, and baby carrots. I hate onions, and my bf doesn't eat mushrooms. Most of the recipes I have found online say to put onions and mushroom soup in with it.

TQC, what's the best way to make a pot roast with the three ingredients above (carrots, chuck roast, potatoes)? In all the recipes I saw online, you should add 1/4 cup of water and let it sit on low for about 10 hours. Does that sound about right? 

What food are you craving right now?

Next summer, I'm considering moving to Virginia with my best friend who's from Virginia. I live in Las Vegas currently. We would be living in the Virginia Beach/Norfolk area. I think I'd love it, but she thinks I'd get bored after a while. We took a trip out there about a month ago for a week and I loved it - it's totally different from Las Vegas and I am so ready for a change of pace. Even though I live in the city, I don't do a lot here that I couldn't do elsewhere.

What do you think?
What is there to do in Virginia?
Should I move there? Why or why not?

Since we've been a bit understaffed in the moderator department for a while now, I've added imaria as a mod. Y'all get to live under his iron fist now.

For old times' sake, should I bring back the "cheesewheel" in rule #8?

Edit: McRib cheesewheel is back!

I'm writing a parody of a romance novel with lesbians.

What cheesy romance novel terms should I use?

So far I have 'heaving bosoms', 'milky white skin', and 'silky tresses'.

You must (get to?) relive one year of your teenage years (13-19). Which year do you relive and why?

Edit: Hell yeah, you get to change stuff! But no lame "I'd go back to August 2001 and warn everyone" bullshit.

I didn't know everyone in here was so pretty. After all these picture posts, my new question is:

Who in here would you switch features with?
Which features?

Good lord ladies, you make the internet look good.
