Kind of inspired by thinking about the pregnant man discussed in this post.

Hmm. TQC, with California's recent passing of Proposition 8, which amended the state Constitution to restrict the definition of marriage to a union between a man and a woman...WHAT DOES THAT MEAN for people who do not necessarily fit into the binary gender system???? I mean, besides basically banning gay marriages, does this mean now that people who aren't very obviously biologically and emotionally male or female could be denied the right to marry? Or are people going to have to be TESTED to prove their gender before they will be allowed to be married?!?! Or in regards to the Constitution, does man not necessarily mean male, or woman necessarily mean female?????? D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D: D:

Or am I just all confused, and going down a slippery slope and not making sense?

On a lighter note, I'm going to attempt to sugar my legs tonight. Have you ever tried it before? How did it work for you?

Over in ONTD someone said this in relation to wristbands "i still have one on my wrist from an amazing concert i went to back in april 07."

Do you find this as gross as I do?

Have you ever worn a wristband for some excessive period of time? Why?


My family got together today to decide our Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners for this year. We decided to kind of skimp on Thanksgiving compared to what we usually do and have a feast to please a king for Christmas this year. What are your plans/traditions for the holidays?

I have also been listening to Christmas music? Is it too early for this?

Do any of you have any Christmas songs you are willing to email to me?

Will you post a picture of something that has to do with Thanksgiving or Christmas that makes you happy?

Falafel Mmmmmmmm

For those of you have had falafel at the Pita Pit, is it any good?
If you can say, does it taste fairly authentic?

In general, have you had falafel, what did you think?
If not, would you try it?

Read this over at

Remember the pregnant transgendered man earlier this year? Well, he's on 20/20 tomorrow with his wife and baby. And he's announcing to world on that show, on national television, that he is pregnant again. It has also been leaked that he sold the photos of his first baby to People for $300,000. Not only that but there is a book about his life story in the works.

So, I ask you, TQC, is this man a pioneer or starting to smell like an attention whore?

And is he really a man if he keeps on having kid after kid?

On the opposite side of the coin, what if this man had originally been born a man but had decided to call himself a woman but had still kept his penis and testicles in order to impregnate his wife. Would you considered that man a woman?

Should there be a new gender name for people who want to play the fence like this? If so, what should it be? (Personally, I am leaning towards "Shman".)

TQC, it is time to be honest.

Which one is smarter: you or your SO?

For the first time ever, I find myself as the less intelligent one in the relationship.  Since I am pretty damn smart myself, this means my boyfriend is scary smart.

If you don't have an SO, use your last relationship.  Does it bother you when you are the less intelligent partner?  I kind of like it, it means I don't have to think as much! :P

Help me out there, TQC.

I have one more general education requirement to fulfill. To fulfill said requirement, I can either take Intro to Marine Biology, or Intro to Human Genetics. I have taken the upper division equivalents for both these classes so, honestly, I can probably do both of these classes in my sleep. I would prefer the Intro to Marine Biology class, not only because I heart marine biology, but you also get a free trip to the Monterey Bay Aquarium (which is like, one of the COOLEST aquariums EVER).  The thing is, if I take that class, I'd be forced to move one of my four hour long labs to night time, meaning I'd be stuck on campus until 9pm, without a car, and the buses hardly ever come. The Intro to Human Genetics fits into my schedule quite nicely, but you don't get a cool field trip anywhere in that class. Plus...genetics is boring...

So, what should I do, Intro to Marine Biology, or Intro to Human Genetics?

In 8th grade we had some civil war reenactors come to my school. I asked Lincoln if he dressed that way all the time. Everyone laughed at me. I had always been under the impression that reenactors always dressed that way and actually lived as the person they were playing.

Okay so I have a gathering I'm supposed to go to. Problem: I didn't get paid until today, thus did not try to get a hotel room until today. THEY'RE ALL BOOKED. All of them. Every single one within a three hour radius thats under 120 dollars is booked.

So, should I rough it and camp with the boys or just not go? Read: no shower, no legit bathroom, nothin'. Tents and sleeping bags. I wanted to get a hotel so I wouldn't have to brave the state trekking drive tonight. Its far. Stopping when I got tired was kind of important. Also note that I've got a bad back so the possibility of me being immobilized from sleeping on the ground is sorta likely.

I got it figured out. My friend has a camper there. All is well with the world.

I handed in my resignation at my job two weeks ago. A few weeks prior to that one of my two bosses told me that there would be a severance package if I decided to leave (while I figured it wouldn't be much, it surpised me). I told them I was going to go to graduate school. Which I am, but not for a year or two. I actually quit because I really hated working there.

Today is my last day. Yesterday we ordered pizza for lunch and the other boss, the head guy, handed me an envelope and told me not to open it until 5pm today. I cheated a little and opened it just a minute ago. I had figured it was a severance package of some sort.

It turned out to be a 'Christmas gift' the same one I got last year. A $250 dollar gift card to Dick's sporting goods. Which is cool, but that doesn't really do me any good. Last year I used it to buy a new winter coat. I would have preferred cash, or extended health insurance for a couple months.

Whats a great gift idea to get for my boyfriend who is rather simple, love's/ride's motorcycles, draws (and is pretty danm good at it), play's guitar, and loves the blues/classic rock?

Last year for Christmas we bought him a set of tools that saved his life. He already has a Ducati and a Hd Sportster. He has 3 guitars, and he pretty much has all the music he likes in his itunes so Cd's are out. I was thinking about getting him a new Ipod, but everytime I got him one or lend him one in the past...he had to sell it to get money for food and gas...and I don't want to risk that again.

okay, so i know when you write a cover letter for a job you are supposed to include why you would be an asset to the company--make it less about why you want to work there and more about why they would benefit from hiring you.
Does this apply to internship cover letters as well? I am trying to write one right now and it seems silly to pretend that my presence would benefit them at all except for my skills at getting coffee or filing papers.

eta: is "thus far" too stuffy for a cover letter? or should i stick to "so far" or "to date"?
sorry, i am really nervous about these things.

To TQC-ers with computer knowledge:

I have a desktop computer at home which I had to reinstall Windows XP on. Once it was installed, I decided to try and install Windows Vista. It turns out my system wasn't compatible with Vista, so halfway through the setup an error message appeared. Now when I start the computer it goes right to the Vista setup - even if I put the original Windows XP cd in.

What do I do to fix it??

I'm probably going to see my dad for Thanksgiving in either Pompano Beach or Ft. Lauderdale (I can't remember which, but they're close anyways). We usually end up going out to eat a few times but generally stick around the house or go see his job sites, which are interesting, but only for about 20 minutes. What can we do that's budget friendly around that area? Also, what can I do besides read on the 12 hour train rides there and back? Really addictive/fun offline computer games would be great.

But I'm just curious... Do they ever fuck? The main characters, I mean. It sounds like it would be hot. I feel like I'm missing out here. I'm totally not going to read the other three books if they never fuck.

Jacking and Jilling: One of the raunchiest polls I've done

Jack and Jill went up the hill,
To fetch a pail of water,
Jack fell down and broke his crown,
And Jill came tumbling after.

Up Jack got and home he ran
As fast as he could caper.
There his mother bound his head,
With vinegar and brown paper.

What's the central theme of this nursery rhyme?

Gravity and its repercussions
Child abuse
It's really a commercial for the vinegar company

'Jack and Jill went up the hill to fetch a pail of water'. What does this really mean?

Two kids were instructed to fill up a bucket of water for dinner
Mutual masturbation to orgasm. The 'hill' is the upward path and the 'bucket of water' is the end product of orgasm

'Jack fell down and broke his crown, and Jill came tumbling after' describes what exactly?

A young boy loses his footing and hurts his noggin rolling down the hill
The man reaches orgasm first and injures the tip of his penis in the process. The woman comes in second

'Up Jack got and home he ran, As fast as he could caper. There his mother bound his head, With vinegar and brown paper.' What happened here?

The injured boy raced home and let his mother tend to his injuries
After the man finishes up, he realizes he's not done yet and hurries over to his mother's, where disgusting incest occurs

What was that last thing that made you swoony?



I was supposed to go ice skating with my daughter and some other adults who ended up having to cancel. I have a free coupon for today only. I am debating whether to still go with just my little kid. Would you think it was weird (like, boring and lame and friendless) to see a solitary adult with a solitary kid out on the ice rink?

Should I go?

My crushperson and his son maaaaaaaay or may not go, so that's kind of incentive to want to go but also makes me not want to look lonerish in front of him, or like ~desperate~ for still going without friends.... if either of those affects your opinion at all.

I would take the money I saved up, trade in my 2002 Ford Taurus, and get a new car in January.
I would keep the Ford Taurus and wait until next October when I could pay for a new car without financing it.
I would leave the money in savings, sell the Taurus and use that money for a new vibrator and a new wardrobe and rely entirely on public transportation.
I would put the saved up money down on some real estate and wait til the Taurus started dropping little pieces of itself on the road to buy a new vehicle.
none of the above.

So, I'm going to see my (hopefully soon-to-be-ex) mother- and sisters-in-law this weekend.  MIL has volunteered to be the go-between so I plan on bringing YET ANOTHER copy of our divorce papers for her to give to her son. 

He ignores me completely, but my MIL tells me that his girlfriend comes over to "hang out" when he ditches her to go party with his friends so my sister says I should write DIVORCE PAPERS really, really huge on the envelope and leave it somewhere obvious for said girlfriend to see. It's been almost 2 years and I'm fed up. 

Is this too bitchy?  Any other suggestions? I'm trying to go the uncontested, 'summary dissolution' route because I honestly don't want to see his face ever again.

My landlords basically restrict us from doing anything, like we can't make food or go into the kitchen during the day at all because they never leave (literally, the woman sits there for 13 hours and does not get up) until 7 p.m. and I live with a bunch of other people. Also, I don't want to stay in the apartment for Christmas because I'm sure my landlords will stare at me if I so much as try to get a drink of water, which they do anyway. I'm scheduled to move in January, though.

There is an offer on Facebook to rent out an apartment - so I would have the whole apartment to myself - from December 10 until January 10. It costs twice as much as my current monthly rent, but it's only for a month. It's also too far away from work for me to walk so I would have to buy a monthly pass. That said, I could afford it, although it would sap up a lot of my savings.

Should I tell the person I'm interested? I can move out of this apartment with no notice since I have no contract.

are you donating to children in need? how much? (i'm on about the actual children in need charity that is on TV right now in england)
who is your favourite TV presenter?
can you make me laugh?
what was the last sentence you hand wrote?
text - something to say

Dear TQC,

Can one get AIDS from donating/selling plasma?

Anybody know anything about the process in general? All I know is that they run your blood through a machine that spins it to separate the plasma from the red blood cells. Surely it's sanitary....

What's the worst group project experience you've ever had?

Do you have any tips for people who are forced into group projects?

I had to give a pop culture presentation today and it was AWFUL. The other people in my group insisted on using Disney movies as references and picked clips and scenes that had nothing to do with our point; the class would not participate in our discussion at ALL and the TA cut us off early. D:

What the heck do you think a scallop is????

I was always pretty certain they were just potato cakes, except know it turns out it's a sea creature. Maybe it's a cultural thing, where are you from? (Australia here)

Are these seaanimal scallops delicious?

mail-in rebates

My 50 dollar rebate for my phone is due probably like, now, and because I'm busy and scatterbrained and slightly lazy I haven't gotten around to it.

It says that the "offer dates" for the rebate are 10/14 through 11/15 (tomorrow). But it says it needs to be postmarked by 12/20, that doesn't make much sense.

If I put it in the mailbox tomorrow, will it count, or will my laziness cost me 50 dollars?

The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus

Say there's a journal-like book sitting on a table in a cafe sitting area. It's decorated in such a way that it looks like an art book. On the cover is a poem describing what it's all about. In general, the journal is there for anyone to write in, write an entry or a poem, or draw in, put pictures in, just about anything, really.

Do you make an effort to take hold of the opportunity to express yourself in this journal that others have and will express themselves in, too?

What would you do? Not specifically, as I'm sure no one would know until faced with the opportunity, but would you write? Draw? Or what?

Wii & Wii Fit

Are the Wii & Wii Fit still in demand?

My guy and I are selling ours and we want to charge the maximum dollar because I need the money.  We're basically trying to recoup the full cost of the Wii and Wii Fit and we're throwing in some games (one includes a gun) for free but we don't even know if people still play it.  We want to charge a fair and reasonable price.  =\
