I am about to get my first tattoo in a couple of years (once I move out of my house and all of that jazz). And, of course, I'm pretty nervous.

I've never been able to relax around needles...although I could tolerate it...but I was wondering...

Was your first tattoo expirence painful to the point of tears or was it peachy keen? Where do you think is the area of the body that'll be the less painful to get a tattoo at?

TQC, where should I have gone to college?


Fuck college, you should have just hung out at home or taken a year off or some shit.

How connected are you to your heritage?

Did you grow up eating traditional ethnic food? Celebrate holidays that are uncommon in America but traditional to your culture? Listen to music or watch movies that are tied to your heritage?

Is there really a holiday in the Jewish religion where you pitch a tent in the back yard, or is my friend an idiot?

Do you believe that from the time you are born, the time that you'll die is already set?

What have you been eating the most of lately? cabbage, tons of it mostly boiled and at nearly every meal, olives, jalapenos, banana peppers and rice cakes
Have you eaten anything unusual for you lately?I ate a whole large can of spinach today, also some of those cream cheese and chive crackers with plain and honey nut cream cheese. SO GOOD.
What will you be doing on Black Friday? Is there anywhere in particular that is having a can't miss extravaganza?

if you could magically make your bellybutton disappear, would you?

I watched a show about plastic surgery and they talked about how when you get a tummy tuck, they sometimes have to cut out your bellybutton and make you a new one. I was like "Fuck that, I don't need a new bellybutton". Ever since then I've wanted to get rid of mine.

Have you ever gotten cosmetic surgery? Would you ever? What would you change if you could?

I bought a G1 recently and kinda like it a lot. However the holidays are coming up and hours are being cut at work. I am also a bit behind on my Credit card bills. I am also planning a trip in Feb. to NYC.

Should I be responsible and return it tomorrow and choose a less expensive phone so I don't have to spend about $120 a month on my phone bill?

What movie is it?

There's this christmas movie I remember loving as a kid but I have no idea what it is. The only thing that sticks out in my mind is that at one point these kids built this GIANT snow fort, like a freakin castle, and had a giant snowball fight with some rival kids or something...

Does anyone know what movie thats from?

I already wore jeans yesterday, I'm definitely wearing them Wednesday because I have to leave right from work, and today it's raining. (We have Thursday and Friday off.)

Do you have any friends who have REALLY annoying habits that almost overshadow their good qualities?

A friend of mine is always bashing skinny people and talking about how they're not attractive to her and how only Queen Latifah sized people look healthy and calling me a stick (even though I'm a round size 6-8). It really irritates me! But she's also always dieting and used to be anorexic and bulimic and complaining when she puts on weight. I just want to slap her sometimes and say CHOOSE BITCH!  EITHER SKINNY  PEOPLE ARE UGLY AND YOU'RE HAPPY BEING FAT OR YOU'RE NOT. She also constantly talks about her double D boobs and how much guys love them and how fantastic huge boobs are and wouldn't everyone love to have boobs that big. She also thinks her boss is just jealous of them and that's why she asked her to stop wearing cleavage revealing tops into work.

How can I tell her to STFU about all of this without coming off as the bitch I secretly am?

Assume for a moment that you're walking to your parked car (if you don't have a car pretend you do) in a dark abandoned parking lot in the middle of the night (don't ask why you parked there you just did). As you get to your car a man of average height and build steps out of the shadows demands you give him your keys or he'll shoot you. He has his hand in his pocket but you can't see a gun. There's no one in the general vicinity so yelling for help will do you no good.

In this situation what would you do?

Warning: You may find this disgusting. When a friend of ours told us about it, I was pretty grossed out and am still disturbed.

Do you think this is real?

If so, what do you think about it in general? 

I think the reviews look fake so it makes me wonder. In general, I actually find it pretty disgusting and am a little worried now about where I eat dinner.

I've decided to take up painting again, but I haven't done it in quite a few years, and when I did it was always in a class where supplies were given to me. So, what kind of paint should I purchase?

I can't afford any Christmas presents for my friends this year (bad economy and all that jazz). The question is should I ask them not to give me anything, tell them it's optional if they want to get me something (though it would make me feel guilty if they did give me something and I could give something in return), or ask them all if they would rather do a homemade Christmas gift exchange this year (I can bake half way decently but I don't want to put any pressure on anyone to make presents if they don't want to)?

Yesterday I saw two men blowing up a huge inflatable rat outside of someone's house. The rat was facing the house and was right on the edge of the lawn. It was a house like this, much like every other house here in central NJ.

I went back a few hours later and it was gone.

What the fuck was this about? It had to be some union thing right?

i work in an office. when i'm heating up my lunch, it never fails that at least one person (usually a stranger) comments about how good my food smells. and then i feel obligated to respond in some awkward way. i always want to be snarky and reply with "yeah i just can't WAIT to tear into this lean cuisine".

has this ever happened to you?

i'm going to my brother's house for thanksgiving. i want to bring something, but NOT food, because everyone brings food. i'd like to bring stuff to make cocktails (one kind of cocktail... enough stuff to make at least 10-15 of them). It should be easy to make and few ingredients, being that i have a small cooler and it's a 4 hour drive.

So... what cocktail should i bring? (please list ingredients)

I have a meeting tonight with students. The last time I had a meeting with the same students (class representatives) I brought them all treats in the form of a pastry. But it's kind of a hassle and we feed them tons and tons of pastries every semester. I bet each of them gets at least one pastry every couple weeks (or more often) anyway.

So, should I bring them pastries anyway or just forget about feeding them? The meeting is at 4:00 and should run less than an hour.

Or do you have more creative ideas about what I could feed them that won't require utensils?

I have a couple of Thanksgiving questions I don't think have been asked recently!

I have quite a few friends who haved moved to the U.S. from other countries. They seem really split on whether they celebrate it or not.

Some say, "Eh, even though I'm naturalized, it just isn't part of our tradition. We've never done anything".

Others point out that even though the true history of it is somewhat biased and problematic, part of the "original" spirit of it is moving to a new country, dealing successfully with change, and celebrating with the ones you did this all with. So it applies perfectly. Plus, hello, an excuse to make an awesome feast!

My family, second generation on my mom's side, tends to take the second view. If applicable, what have your families or your friend's families done? Personally, I think it is great when you can merge the different cultural traditions together.

Feel free to answer if you're in Canada or a different country that has a similar holiday, even if the roots are different.

Second question: What kinds of beer and wine do you find pair well with a Thanksgiving feast? I'm pregnant, so it is a bit of a moot point, but I'd like to live vicariously and prepare for next year.

So I received this text from some guy who thinks he's God's gift and he's quite annoying to be honest..

"Mmmmm. Big, meaty, juicy, full of sauce...But enough about my cock, this burger is awesome!"

I'm the office manager at a small regional office, and our holiday luncheon is next week. It typically falls to the people in my position to put together small party favors for everyone. In a bigger office typically they buy something like a store-bought ornament or a cd of Christmas music for everyone, but since we're a smaller and more personal office I want to get something maybe a little bit more interesting.

What kinds of interesting things have you ever gotten as a holiday party favor? Any cute DIY ornament or other ideas for around $5 pp?

I was thinking $15 if its ok, $25 if I'm very happy with it. Is that too cheap?

And how exactly do I tip?
I've always left the tip with the receptionist, but is that trustworthy? Do I leave it at their station? How do I give it to them personally without it being awkward or needing a suave money handoff?

Strange doggy behavior

My pitbull/lab Sydney is about a year and a half old now. We got her at 6 months, and she's been the sweetest thing.

She does something strange though. When we got her a fuzzy doggy bed, she'd clamp down on it and suck on the pillow. The doggy bed now no longer exists (thanks to her pitbull tendency to rip her toys apart), and she was fine for a while. But now when she sleeps on my bed, if I have a fuzzy comforter or blanket on top she'll clamp down on a mouthful of blanket and suck on that, sometimes making "nom nom" motions with her jaws. I found tooth marks in the blankets a couple of times.

Why would she do this? Is it a loneliness thing (I don't see why it would be - we pay lots of attention to her), or maybe she was weaned too early and she's unconsciously kneading for milk?

I'm not really sure how to approach it, if it's actually a problem or just a weird dog thing. Advice?

Say you are a college student, junior year and you are busting ass to graduate on time. You have no time for electives and are taking an extra class for a couple quarters to get out on time.

How pissed would you be to find out that the registrar messed up and placed you in a class you don't need, through no fault of your own? (You find out with 2 weeks left of the course, so there's no making up for lost time)

(If they don't give me credit for what it was supposed to be, I am going to raise hell/demand a refund for my tuition)

EDIT: I don't think I was very clear.
My adviser told me to take EDU T&L 489.01. So that is what I signed up for. It is definitely required for my major. However, T&L 489.05 is not required, but it was mislabeled as .01. That happens to be the class that the registrar thought I signed up for when I chose .01. I didn't know I was in the wrong class because they are both math teaching field experience courses, with minor differences. One of which being whether it's required to graduate. All 30 students in this class had the same thing happen.

The last few times I've taken my toddler to a movie, she slept through the whole thing. So I'm thinking about the option of bringing her with me to see twilight with the hope that she sleeps through it.

But... in the event that she wakes up, is it too scary of traumatic for a little kid? If you have seen it, were there any small kids in the theater?

I'm hoping that the worst case scenario is that she would just be bored if she does wake up.

Or I just won't see it if it's kid-scary. It's not worth the sitter hassle.

So, like, I know that Wal*Mart is bad and all that. I grew up near a Bradlees and Woolworth's, which were replaced by a Wal*Mart, so I've really come to depend on that sort of cheap department store goodness. Now I live in a town without one, and the closest is a 30 minute drive.

I freaking love Wal*Mart and Target. I tell people this and get funny looks. Nowhere else remotely close can I shop for household/grocery/odds and ends for THAT CHEAP. Nor is any other store open past 5pm, save for CVS and Walgreens. Not the same, dude! Am I really an asshole for missing Wal*Mart? Gosh.

Also, the cat just laid one in her litter box that is seriously making my head spin. The smell emanating from it is fucking powerful. What the hell did my cat eat for lunch to make such a horrendous smell? She's an indoor cat! Wtf!
