inspire by this post and my own curiosity.

what is the best way to track someone down? private eye? online?
how to i make sure it's legit?

i have a social security number, old cities/addresses, all sorts of personal info..
i'd really just like to find a current address and phone number without paying $50.00 for some website to scam me.

For all you red-meat eaters: Do you like Hamburger Helper? If yes, what's your favorite kind? My friend and I are in an on-going debate over which is best.

And for you non-meat eaters: what do you usually end up ordering in restaurants that do not cater to a vegetarian/vegan clientele?

I'm having a spring wedding (in May 2010) and I'm trying to plan ahead now because I'll be overwhelmed with student teaching and crap like that in the months before my wedding.

My wedding date is my grandparents anniversary (it'll be really close to their 50th, but I can't remember what year they got married and they're both dead so it's not like I can call them up and ask) My dress is very similar to my grandma's. My colors are bright pink, kiwi green and mango-orange. My flowers are tiger lillies and stephanotis

We're having a formal, Catholic wedding with a mass. The guys are all wearing black suits with subtle white pinstripes, solid black shirts and solid, straight, bright pink ties. My fiance is wearing the same, but with a black tie. Dads are wearing white ties.

My question is this. I found really pretty bridesmaids dresses that I love love love. They're black with a sash that is the exact green and pink that I want to use. Is it tacky or morbid to have bridesmaids dressed in black? I think it'll be really pretty, especially against the colors of the flowers. I think it'll make the colors pop, but I think my mom is going to think I'm dressing everyone for a funeral. I just think black is really sleek and sharp. What's your opinion?



Collapse )

also, can anyone give me suggestions as to what I can do during the ceremony in memory of my grandparents? I have the newspaper clipping from their wedding announcement with one of their wedding photos in it that I plan to put in our programs and I wanted to stick a small blue flower in my bouquet (my grandma's favorite color)... anything other ideas??

tqc, a bunch of you have listened to me bitch in the past few days and a lot of you have given me good advice and have given me things to think about. thank you. most of my friends are sick of listening to me and you guys have helped a lot. : ) i finally decided i am absolutely done talking to my ex after he pays me back, because thanks to you guys i finally realized that he just isn't worth it in the slightest.


has anyone in tqc really helped you in some way? want to thank them for it? do it in this post!

Essays :(

I have to write a final essay for a class. It's the biggest one I've had to write yet and I'm a bit intimidated, to put it mildly. My biggest problem, when it comes to this, is making a GOOD thesis statement.
I was thinking of trying something different for this class and just researching what I'm interested in first, THEN making a thesis statement about what I've learned. For example, I'm interested in learning about the goddesses of the past/present and the similarities between Moon goddesses. I have no clue what a good thesis statement could be. She has left it to us to develop our own thesis statement, though she has given us some ideas. If I get too intimidated, I might just cop out and write a paper based on her ideas. Since I love this class, I'd like to try to do it myself.


Is this idea (research first, thesis statement derived from research) a good idea?

If not, what IS a good idea?

What are your biggest problems when it comes to writing essays and how do you deal?

>.<

Thanks!

Dating questions

You're dating someone new and you get to the point where you're asking about exes. You see a picture of the ex, and it's someone with a severe case of Down's Syndrome. When asked about it, he/she just says that it was just a sexual relationship, that the whole relationship pretty much took place in bed. How would you feel about that?

Eww. I really didn't need to hear that. I can't help but see this person in a whole new light now
56(58.9%)

You're getting close with someone online (maybe from TQC!) and they're really cute. You chat every day for hours and have recently started talking on the phone. Your first phone call lasted 5 hours. You really like them and vice versa. However, this person lives 2 states away, but you think that you can make it work. Then, one day, the cute person at work/school asks you out. This is the person you've smiled at here and there and always found interesting. Would you go out with this real life person, or stay true to the online person?

Real life person. LDRs are work and this is easier
37(38.1%)
Online person. I have a strong bond with them already
11(11.3%)
I'd go out with the RL person, but would still keep talking to the online person. I'd just keep it under wraps. He/she wouldn't be the wiser

Inspired by this post...

So a boy I used to date (for like 8 months) doesn't show up at all on the website linked in that post. NOTHING.

Did he lie to me about his name?! I've always been curious because his name never brought anything up on the Goggles either. We didn't have any mutual friends and he lived about 40 minutes away from where I lived at the time, so it's not like he couldn't get away with it.

If y, wtf why would you do that...?!

"God, Guns, & Gas

let's keep them here!"

First of all God wasn't made in America, and gas is made everywhere. The lovely people have told me guns were invented in China so yes this is a completely wrong bumpersticker of dumbfuckery.

I'm thinking that I need a new messenger bag... I want one that can survive the rain. I'd also like it to have a thick strap (less likely to hurt even if there's a lot of weight in the bag). And ideally, something kinda unique and/or quirky in some way. i generally like black and grey or black and red.

Does anyone have any suggestions/ideas/links?

so, apparently i'm the last 21 year old on the planet who doesn't have some kind of portable music playing device. i'm on a very limited budget, so, outside of selling my body for electronics, i need something dirt cheap. and reliable. i understand that these don't necessarily go hand-in-hand.

i'm looking for something that will hold a charge for a long time and be able to hold 500-800 songs, averaging about 3 minutes a piece. i'm going to ask around craigslist and look on amazon, so i'm wondering, TQCers, would you recommend for me? i don't need anything heavy duty, just simple and in working condition.

outside of craigslist, are there any other places i should check? some kind of special site specifically for selling old electronics? what about refurbished ones? what are your experience with refurbished electronics?

if you don't care about that, have you had the vivanno blended drinks from starbucks? i LOOOOVE the orange mango banana one with soy. ohhh it's so heavenly. i'll be very sad when i won't be able to use my meal plan at starbucks when i get out of college and into the real world. :(

It's snowing outside, TQC! And it's the pretty fluffy kind of snow, not the usual sandy scour-your-face-off sort that's usually accompanied by 70 mph winds.

Should I continue sitting in the library watching it fall out the window, or go out to the campus commons and run around in it? I have mittens, but no scarf, and another class in 45 minutes.

When does it usually start to snow (if at all) in your area?

Do you prefer watching snow or rain fall outside your window?

coupon book

I am making an advent calendar for my bf for christmas, but instead of gifts i am making a coupon for each day. I have the basics like kiss, hug, home cooked dinner, stuff like that. But I need 24 coupons and am running out of creative ideas! I would like a mix of sexual and non sexual. I am also trying to keep whatever the coupon offers minimal in what it will cost me to fulfill the coupon as I've already spend quite a bit on his actual gift.

If you were making something similar for your SO, what coupons would you include?

Long shot, but I figured I'd try anyway.

So, I have a fairly large My Received Files folder on my computer, because I get a lot of my music from my friends via MSN. This morning when I was playing with my itunes, I realized that about half of my received songs (20ish) from one specific friend were gone. Deleted from my laptop entirely, no trace of them anywhere. I haven't touched the folder it came in, and all I am now is very confused. Is there some reason my computer would eat like 20 files from the same person for no particular reason? And is there software I can download that will let me upload to my computer just those specific songs from my iPod?

tqc, quick! i have a question that needs answering! i'm writing a paper on how history education fails high school students, and this is my intro so far:

Upon graduating high school, most of us would assume that we were given a comprehensive and thorough education in history. Most of us can name when the Civil War started and ended, when Christopher Columbus discovered America, and when the Declaration of Independce was signed. Some of us can probably also name important dates in world history, such as when the Normans invaded English (1066),

my question is: should i have the dates in parenthesis or not?


if you don't care about this, feel free to spam me with recipes! ones for mashed potatoes would be awesome as i apparently volunteered to make them this year!

and if you don't care about that, how badly does your writing suffer when you haven't slept in 20 hours? you personally, not you generally. cause i think mine is going to really suffer. : (

my best friend has a really busy work and school schedule. other than the occasional night she has off that she usually ends up sleeping through or doing homework, Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays are her only nights off, and she always spends them with her boyfriend.

is it unreasonable of me to ask her to once in a while tell her boyfriend she can't come over or can't come over until later on one of the days she ALWAYS sees him so that we can spend sometime together?

Okay, what is the normal amount to spend on an engagement ring?

I wouldn't even marry anyone who was stupid enough to spend that much on jewelry.

Old books . . . what do do?

I have a bunch of old, paperback Star Trek (original series, TNG) tie-in novels (published anywhere from the early 1980s through the mid-1990s) and of the series-related guides published in the late 1980s/early 1990s.

Should I:

1. Toss them into the recycle bin?

2. List them on ebay?

(Edited: the recycle option is because they are in rather bad shape. Readable, but probably not worth a whole heck of a lot.)

So I've seen a couple posts recently about ChaCha, this human guided search engine via mobile phone. I looked on the website to see if I could sign up to become a guide and it looks like they aren't 'hiring' at the moment, but I'm wondering if any of you are currently working for them and could fill me on the process of how you got the job and how it's working out for you?
Are they growing? Do you think they'll be looking for more guides anytime soon?

Also, is there away to get referred for a position anyway even thought I can't get anywhere with them on the website?

If yes, can you point be toward some decent tutorials for beginners? I've tried several different sites and they all sort of assume you are at an intermediate level, so they are of no help to me.

and the original was:

Next year for various reasons I have to move 3 hours away from where I live now.
One minute my SO says he will come with me, then is saying that we are going to have to make 'upsetting decisions'.
On drunken occasions he has been really mean about it all saying our relationship will never work whether he lives with me or not, 'you'll meet someone else' etc.
It keeps coming up and he's spoiling what we have now by constantly turning it into a big issue.
So, when it next comes up should I agree with his pessimism, try to be optimistic (as usual, I just get told that i'm wrong) or what?
Im really struggling with this. Its a fantastic relationship save his insecurities. I need you to be nice TQC =[
What would you do?

TQC, why do I get so angry?

2. it's almost impossible to slit your own wrists
3. the whole "falling off a building and decapitating yourself with piano wire and gluing your hands to your head" thing hasn't been funny for years

According to this article: http://ap.google.com/article/ALeqM5hZmLBrL36NObNyMR0ghXN7vB5hYwD94DJAH80, there are going to be protests across the country in support of gay marriage.  Does anyone know of a site other than Facebook (which is blocked at work) that has more information on this?

I'm all for gay marriage.  Why should straight people be the only people who can be miserably married?  Spread the misery around!  It's only fair that the government should get involved in their private affairs too, and make them stand in front of a judge and publicly announce they are failures and can't stand this person anymore, will-you-please-cut-me-loose-from-this-maniac-Your-Honor.

id like some DVDs, and maybe a pair of adult all in one PJs.

iTouch

My husband's iPod is first-generation and seemes to always have problems. I'd like to get him a new one for Christmas.

My question is - those of you who have an iTouch, what do you think of it? It seems like an awesome idea. He doesn't want a "dainty" iPod - so a nano is out - but the iTouch seems cool, in my budget, etc. He isn't a blackberry person - hates the concept of paying monthly for it - so his phone is pretty basic (I, on the other hand, love my blackberry, haha). But the iTouch, he could maintain his contacts/calendar, access internet when we're near a wifi connection, AND use as an iPod, right?

yikes!

When was the last time someone brought you out of your bubble?

I just had to deal with a water guy, and I hate dealing with people. He tried to offer my free water and then asked if he could come in my house to set it up. I pretty much said wtf no.

EXPERIMENTS!!!!

oh hi guys i have a few questions!!!

me and my boyfriend are having an experiment type thing and this is me conducting the information!! basically my boyfriend says ON THE WHOLE people don't look back on losing their virginity as a good experience. i think actually you can't compare losing your virginity with the rest of your sexual incounters throughout your life so it's not particularily good or bad just different and good because of something different than how sex is generally good. THIS IS MY QUESTION:

WHEN YOU LOST YOUR VIRGINITY WAS IT A GOOD OR BAD EXPERIENCE FOR YOU? (or somewhere in between i guess but this is not a good answer for my experimentalness) give me details if you want to i suppose (+ why)

my boyfriend says it was a good experience for me because he'd had sex before (which is quite cheeky of him to say actually) but if you both haven't it would probably be pretty bad. so were you both losing your virginity at the same time or not? what do you think on this general point??

THIS IS ANOTHER TOPIC:

he bought a reely thing of electric fence and we are having fun with it by holding part of it each with one hand and seeing how long we can both hold on for. i'm winning because he is generally scaredy of stuff!! what is a kind of pain that you enjoy??

Inspired by this post, what is the kind of body you want?

What is the kind of body type your are physically attracted to?

What should I do to get some "sexual healing" at this point in time? I am a very lonely girl.

I'm not ipod savvy and neither is my dad. Would it be completely stupid for me to buy him an ipod for his 50th birthday and fill it with music for him to use in his work truck?
Should I just buy him satellite radio instead? (If you have it, would you recommend it?)

in conclusion:
as a cranky 50 year old guy, which would you rather get for your birthday:
-ipod
-satellite radio
-steak of the month club

TQC my boyfriend is dragging me to a ski resort this winter, and I don't ski or snowboard or like cold weather at all. I typically avoid the outdoors when it's winter-y, and have only invested in clothing that will keep me warm during the walk from my car to whatever location I'm going to (like a couple jackets and scarves and maybe a pair of gloves).

Oh wise and knowing internet community, what should I do? He might make me try to snowboard, and I'm not sure the clothing I currently own will protect me from the horrors of such things as snow-down-the-shirt and frozenbutt. What kind of clothes should I start looking for to prepare for this?
Also, is he trying to kill me because I don't like the cold?
I don't want to be the boring girlfriend that stays in the condo all day while everyone leaves to have fun. :(

Do you enjoy the winter sports?

Permanent accounts.

1a. Will you be buying a permanent account next week? Why? Why not?

1b. Would you accept one if someone was paying for it as a gift and you wouldn't be paying a cent?

1c. If you already have one, do you recommend it?



Somewhat related:

2. If you have multiple LJ's that you use, which one would you make the permanent account? The one with the most posts? The one that is most recent?

3. If you have the same screen name for most places (aim, myspace, forums, chats, iminlikewithyou, etc) would you make the permanent account LJ that name too?

I have a brownie box mix that says to use vegetable oil, but all I have is a lot of canola oil. Will it be okay to use the canola?

My google results only give me the health benefits of each. I don't care about being healthy, I just want brownies!


YAY, I'm making brownies tonight!

When's the last time you had brownies?

Where did you go?
What did you do?
How much did it cost?
Will you tell me all about it?


And does Activia actually work?
I get stomach aches on a daily basis and I'm thinking it's because I'm not .. regular, I guess. Would Activia really fix that?
