has worrying/anxiety every made you physically sick? i have vomited 8 times in the past three days and my stomach will not stop aching and my migraine is persistent. ALLOW ME TO COMPLAIN. thank you. i love you all.

when you were a kid (if applicable), did you play recreational soccer in a league? how about any rec sports?

if so, was your team good? what were you called? what position did you play? were YOU good? did you enjoy it? did the moms all arrange snack schedules so you got caprisuns and rice krispies and stuff?

how old were you when you first had sex? were you still on your rec sports team?

For those of you who have or are working on a bachelor's degree, was economics (either macro or micro) a general education requirement?

I have to take either macro or micro, and my mother, upon hearing this, went on a rant about how RIDICULOUS it is that I, as a sociology major, need to take it.

(ETA 2: I don't think it's ridiculous, my mother does. I laughed at her when she said that.)

Also, which is easier, macroeconomics or microeconomics?

ETA: What classes were you required to take that were completely unrelated/useless for your major?

Do you know of any guys who speak with a "gay voice," but who claim to be straight?
I met this guy a couple weeks ago and was like, 99% sure he was down with the cock, but I went on his Facebook and evidently he's "interested in women." So idk. Is he horribly in denial, or is it possible that he's just a straight guy with a really high-pitched voice, a slight lisp, and flamboyant dance moves?

What should I ask for this Christmas?
I like books and movies and TV on dvd so recommend some stuff please. OH and I have a nintendo DS and want a game for it but don't know what.

tl;dr but oh well.....

I went to the bar with my friend today. It was terrible! I'm not a bar person...I'm a hang out at bon fires, get stoned, have fun with friends and friends of friends type of person. She's a drinker only, likes to dress fancy and expensive, go out to dance to bad music type of person.

I went to the bar because she recently got dumped and I thought I'd cheer her up by accepting the offer. We went with another mutual friend. I look like I definitely don't belong there. People also thought the same. A chubby chest tattooed, dreadlocked girl with no rap dancing skills among a lot of skinny bar stars and weird guys.

She got very drunk and ended up giving her number out even though she asked us to watch out for her to not do those things. I didn't want to interfere but I thought I would just let her know that if she didn't want this guy to hang around to let me know and I'd ask him to leave since she wouldn't do it herself. She told me she wasn't sure...that he was "too short for her" and she didn't like that he was touching her.

I smacked his hand off of her because I've been harassed at bars (why I stopped going) I got protective of her. He left and she got mad at me.
I told my other friend I was going and to tell her goodbye. They left shortly after I did because this guy was getting way too in her face about wanting to be with her and ended up catching me in time to give me a ride home.

When I got out of the car after he drunkily implying that MY unhappiness and awkwardness at the bar was the result of me being tired and "next time we'll go earlier" I told her I would not be going again any time soon if ever. She got annoyed at that. I'm supposed to see her tomorrow but am not really in the mood. She's completely oblivious to what happened tonight.

How should I tell her I don't want to see her until I'm calmed down? I know I'll forgive her, I don't want to give her a hard time but I just need some time because I know she'll be overly apologetic and in a few days I'll be over it....lesson learned.

What do you need to vent about? Go on..let it out!

P.S. I don't like football.

ugh university strike

It's actually my TAs who are on strike, but now everything got so confused since the professors are part of the same union and therefore on strike too. I tried to ask one of my TAs if my exam is going to be pushed back. I have an exam this coming Tuesday, and am scared that if the TAs settle on Monday, they are all going to say "TS, it's in the syllabus on this date so we are doing it" never mind that we have not been told of the format of the exam or the material which is going to be covered in the exam.

*sigh* What to do? Should I study for the exam and go there on the date? BTW if anyone knows the rules, I am at York University in Toronto, Ontario.

I work with kindergarteners. Yesterday I was bent over helping a little girl with something and I hear one of the other girls say my name behind me. So, I just kind of turn my head around and ask what she needs. "Could you pull your pants up?" Cue me being all D: and standing up fast and pulling my pants up, before regaining composure and saying, "Could you see my bottom?" Lots of giggling followed.

So, when's the last time you unintentionally mooned someone?

those with divorced parents:

if you live with your parent's/when you were/when you're visiting, do you ever answer the phone and it's someone asking for the other parent, like they've been together all this time?

i'm at my dad's and the police department just called asking for my dad or my mom. and they really meant MY mom, not 'his wife'. i was like, "Yeah, they've been divorced for like 15 years."

it always cracks me up when people call one of my parents and ask for the other by name. i always want to be like, "Hey, where are you getting your info? 'Cause it's REALLY dated..."

How big is your personal space? Most people have an area around their body that they don't like others to invade unless specifically invited to do so.  

How comfortable are you with inviting people into your personal area? For instance someone you know comes in your room/space and touches your things, what's your reaction? Do you say/do anything or only simmer quietly until they leave?

I need opinions on this necklace.

I am looking for a necklace for everyday wear and I'd like something organic, subtle but a bit different. What do you think of this? Also, it's on an 18 inch chain but there's an option to go up to 24 inches, what length do you think would be best?

Another necklace advice question. It's my best friend's birthday and she's into very simple jewelry and I'd like to get her a necklace that's very simple but different. Anyone have anything in mind? I love Etsy so bonus points if it's from an Etsy seller. I was thinking something with an Italian or Latin quote on it...I don't know, I may end up just getting her a gift card to Barnes and Noble!

should I do the whole probation thing. I haven't gone to court yet but a few of my friends have gotten OWI and it will be atleast a year or the whole AA, JAMS, drug test bullshit, my family and I are extremely broke and I really dont want to go more into debt.

Burning a Word Document onto a CD

I have a paper due on Monday for which I have to turn in an electronic copy on a CD.

When I insert the blank CD and go to file save-as I'm told that it's the "wrong parameter" and then that I don't have access to that folder and should "see the administrator." This is my own laptop on which I've burned many music CDs...and I'm not happy right now.

I searched for other ways to go about this...was told to go under My Computer and open the CD drive from there and drag and drop the document to burn, but every time I click on the CD drive it tells me to insert a CD...which I've obviously already done. AGH!

Any suggestions?

so exboyfriend and i seem more broken up than ever, and i really want to say bye to his mom.

is it way too dramatic to email her? something simple like "hey, looks like [her son] and i are all done. i just wanted to say thank you for everything, you've treated me so well and i really appreciate it. i'll miss you and [her daughter]! you can still call me anytime if you ever need anything."

i don't want to come off as dramatic but she's really great and the three times my ex has been in the hospital, she and i talk on the phone like every day. she's really super nice to me and it's great and i don't want to just disappear without saying goodbye.

question for the ladies

Do you like to wear headbands? I never really did, but I bought some thick stretchy ones today and I think they're cute, but they feel very weird. Like if I tilt my head too fair back they are going to fly off. It also feels like it's sliding but I don't think it is. It just feels weird.

Where am I supposed to find a house to buy or rent? Craigslist is failing me and I'm lost as to where else to look.

Dear TQC,

I have a cold. *sniff* Will you take care of me and cuddle with me? Or will you shun me and my germs?

Also, I've reverted to childhood with this illness and have been watching Fraggle Rock for several hours now. Which is your favorite Fraggle/character? Favorite episode?

I love all the Fraggles! My favorite "special" Fraggle is Cantus.
Capture the Moon is one of my favorite episodes, and the one with the baby tree creature...

Dear Dr. LJ,
I got a flu shot yesterday morning on my upper left arm. My shoulder has been sore since I got the shot, and just now I noticed an odd rash around the shot. I have 2 spots about the size of a quarter to the left and right of where I got my shot. The area immediately around the injection isn't red, nor is it red above or below the shot area. What is going on?

Medical Illustration:

What's with this rash?

Normal reaction to flu shot
Allergic reaction to flu shot
Coincidence - unrelated to flu shot

Poll #1298162 in your closet, in your head

It's 2am and all the lights are off in your room. You reach for something right before you go to sleep (a drink, chapstick, whatever) and it falls on the floor right at the edge of the really dark space under your bed. Do you:

pick it up right away, obviously.
pick it up, but you have to steel yourself first.
turn all the lights on and then pick it up, so that you know something isn't going to grab you from under the bed.
leave it until the morning, night time is no time to stick your hands by the underbed area.

Which is scarier?

horror movies/tv shows
horror books/stories
equally scary
neither is scary

Do you have problems sleeping after you've read or watched something scary?

not if I leave a nightlight on
