1.You have a new boyfriend - which would you rather he revealed to you?:

a) back hair like a gorilla
b) a surprising third nipple
c) tattoo of his exes name

2.If you had to choose one of the following would you:

a) be followed around everyday with the cast of High School musical singing to you?
or
b) wake up every day next to your most hated celebrity?

3.From now on no-one in the world has hair - instead they have liquorice laces that grow continuosly at the same rate that hair did. What flavour would you hope your new ~hair~ is and what ramifications would this have for everyone in the world?

So i found out today that our supposed good friend had a MASSIVE bitching session about my housemate and close friend, who happened to catch him in the act.
The worst part is our other friends were laughing along and agreeing.
Now the guy who was instigating this is 27....

So I'm having a joint birthday party with someone and our friends always have huge parties with fun themes. Our theme is "Disney Characters"... but I'm drawing a blank on something really creative. Before I go off and research, I thought I'd ask here.

If you were going to a Disney themed party, which Disney character would you go as?

Hypothetically, you have grossly overestimated your cupcake decorating abilities. Instead of your cupcakes looking like they have cute icing christmas trees on top, they now look like a sick dog has made a big green turd on top. How would you salvage these (hypothetical) poopcakes?

does anyone know the origin of the phrase 'playing hooky'? Someone used that phrase in conversation today and I haven't heard it since I was in high school... The only time I've ever seen it put literally was in that episode of Sponge Bob where Sponge Bob and Patrick cut work at the Krusty Krab to play on the fishing hooks... Does anyone know or have some ideas?

I just wrote this in a card I got for my co-worker who is having a baby shower at work tomorrow:

Congratulations on the baby - if she's half as cute as your first two, you'll have no problem finding people to babysit. The gift card is only for $20 but I wanted to do something for you since you've never been anything but good to me. Thank you and congrats again. I hope to see the new baby at work soon!

(P.S. My birthday [which is near her due date] is a great day to have a baby!)

Do you find this weird at all?
I'm starting to get nervous about it.

dating at work

so I just started dating a co-worker at gamestop. tqc I'm looking for some reasons why this may or may not be as bad of an idea as my gut (and all of my friends) tell me it is.

1. have you ever gone out with a co-worker before?

2. if you have, were they on the same level, above, or below?
2a. if they were below you did this have any effect on your relationship?

3. how'd the relationship end?

4. were you both still working there when it was over?
4a. if you were, was it as awkward as everyone says it's going to be?

good morning TQC

well thanks to the wonders of caffeine pills and a blatant disregard for the speed limit, i managed to turn in my sociology final on time! :D

my next final is at 12.30, and i have a few options on what to do. should i:


- study some more for my linguistics final [i've already studied a TON, and no matter what i do, i'm getting an A or a high B in this class]?
- go sit in my car and sleep [keep in mind it's about 30 some degrees outside]?

- Read a book (I've just started re-reading one of my favorites! It's been so long that I actually don't remember what it's about, but I know I loved it a few years ago.)
- Have a "Back to the Future" marathon
- Channel surf and LJ



What should I have for breakfast?
- Toast with peanut butter and banana
- Kashi Autumn Wheat cereal with sliced banana
- 700 more bananas



Do you have any credit cards? What kind? What's your limit(s)? What's your balance(s)?

It's just another day!!!!

I am somewhat of a loner. I have no family here, and nowhere to spend Christmas; however, this is just fine with me because I would like to use the day to sit in my room and read by myself. I would actually prefer this to anything else, as I don't celebrate Christmas.

One of my co-workers found out I have "nowhere to go" for Christmas and keeps insisting I spend it with her and her family. I don't want to do this because it would be awkward in the first place, she lives somewhat far away, and in addition to the awkwardness of spending a holiday with a family I don't know that well, her son is in a sexual relationship with another one of my co-workers, and I just do not want to deal with spending the time with him.

I keep telling her that it's fine, I'll figure something out, I don't care. She refuses to listen to me and insists that I "can't spend Christmas alone". So now I'm lying to her and telling her I have tentative plans, but she keeps bringing it up anyway. I know at first she had good intentions, but she doesn't even have my feelings in mind! Just because the day happens to be Christmas doesn't mean you should force your traditions upon other people. It's really making me angry because I try to make it obvious that I want to spend it alone. It's just one day out of the year, my religion/ethnic background/whatever doesn't recognize this, but she (and others) refuse to understand that just because it happens to be Christmas I do NOT want to celebrate it. In fact, it's one of my least favorite holidays, but I'm not going to tell people that because they would surely gasp and hold up the sign of the cross to me. STOP insisting that I MUST celebrate Christmas when I have been searching for ways to flee to a country that largely believes Jesus never rose from the dead!!!

How do I get people to understand that I don't want their holiday inflicted upon me and that I would be happier to stay home alone and pretend it doesn't exist?

Hello!

I'm hosting a party here on Saturday for Annual Presents Day and all my dearest friends are coming.

1. I'm baking some pies, for gifts and eating. One of my friends is lactose intolerant and the pie crust recipe is made with butter. I have shortening...can I substitute the butter for shortening, or will that eff it up? Should I just find another recipe that's specifically made out of shortening?

2. We're exchanging gifts. Everyone just bought a 10 dollar gift, there's no secret Santa or anything like that. Do you have any recommendations for a game we can play to distribute the gifts? I've heard of people playing some games at work parties and the like, though I've never played any...Hopefully something that might take a while to do.

Thanks a lot!

It's winter here and I have my windows wide open, am wearing a tank top and shorts, and am contemplating turning on a fan (in the northern hemisphere). Is there something wrong with the weather where you are, TQC?

My eyes are red because I kept my contacts in too long last night. However, I'm going on a photoshoot with some friends today and my outfit looks way better in contacts instead of glasses. Should I painfully look cute (well, as cute as one could get with red eyes) or comfortably look average?

I'm having a few people over to watch the football game on Saturday, and need to make some food and have some drinks. There will be a mix of both guys and girls.

TQC, what drinks would you recommend I have available? I'm thinking some beer, a few girly drinks, and some liquor and mixers. I'm not a fan of beer, so recommendations in that field in particular would be lovely.

TL;DR--What are some good beers that don't suck, what is your favourite alcoholic beverage?

Craft People, I Need Advice on Ink Pads!

I forgot my ink pads were on the radiator (in a box) and they melted a bit :( so I'm looking to replace them...but what should I buy?

Here are some likely options for me, which sound the best?

What are the differences between pigment ink, Queue Pigment Ink,Chalk ink, Queue Chalk Ink etc?

Colorbox Petal

Rubber Stampede (I think the cost is for one set-not for both that are in the picture

Colorbox Cat's Eye

The second one is actually the kind I have, that melted, and I assume that the price is for just one set, not both in the photo.

Boots for the fashion-challenged.

For some reason, I have decided that this year, I really like boots. I have never liked boots before, so I'm not sure how to approach this. I have tried on boots with my normal boot-leg or flare-leg jeans, and have realized that doesn't work! I can't get the boots zipped around the jeans.

I assume that this year, with straight-leg and tapered-leg jeans being trendy, cramming jeans into boots is easier than usual. But in other years, do people just buy straight-leg jeans specifically for the purpose of fitting them inside boots, or am I just missing some crucial step in making wider-leg jeans fit into boots?

Also, what looks good with boots?

Wardrobe disasters

What was your worst wardrobe disaster ever, and how did you cope?



Today the seam of my pants ripped when I bent over to pick up something. So there's a gaping hole right on my butt! I won't buy this brand of pants again. I had to take off my sweater and tie it around my waist to hide it. The problem is under my sweater I was only wearing a very thin white undershirt. You can see right through it. So I'm keeping my big bulky winter coat on and when people at work ask why, I'll tell them I'm sick or something....

I met a friend of a friend about 2 months ago. I gave him my contact information because we had similar interests and I thought for sure we could hang out from time to time. 

I bumped into him today and he had to go to his friends quickly but wanted to hang out after. He had weed...I smoke weed so I told him to come by later as he knows where I live already (because of mutual friends). So while on the bus he proceeds to tell me he works in a slaughter house and he likes it. He tells me this right before I got off the bus finishing off with "I'll be over in a bit." 

I am totally against his job and the fact that he likes it (he said it was a new job so maybe because he was just bored with his other one) makes me not like him a lot. I don't want to see him (I'd like the weed though). 

When he comes over what excuse can I use to make him go away? My roommates are here and I know she'll answer the door but she also wont lie to him and say I HAD to run out. Any ideas?

As far as Biology textbooks go, would you rather:

a) rent a book for $30 and not be able to mark it up much
b) buy one used for $60something and be able to do what you want?

If it were any subject but Anatomy and Physiology, I'd definitely rent, but I remember completely marking up my A&P book in college (and being able to sell it back to the bookstore), so I'm not sure.

Hi thar, how u doin'?

Last night, I had a dream that I was Brad Pitt's little cousin sister or somehow related like that. But Angelina Jolie didn't know and she thought Brad and I were having a scandalous affair behind her back.

So one night, Angelina Jolie invited me over when Brad Pitt wasn't there and then tried to fuck me hard with her too big strap on in her attempt to make things even.


So is my subconscious telling me that I want to be related to the Pitt family or is it telling me that I'm actually lesbian and want to get fucked hard by Angelina Jolie?

So the only booze I could find in the house tonight was a small 50 mL bottle of Jack Daniels. I can't find an expiration date on it anywhere. The inside of the label that you can only see by peering through the back says "F03706," but I have no idea if that means anything. It smells like whiskey, but that doesn't particuarly mean much and this could be years old for all I know. Do you think it's okay to drink it?

Okay TQC - I haven't been here in awhile.

I have a question.

Two days ago my leg started hurting a LOT.. top of my leg up into my hip and pelvis.  I couldn't really walk.  Then yesterday my knee on the same side started hurting.  Today, add both ankles, my one shoulder, and my other elbow.

New joints keep on hurting, and I am doing nothing to cause this (such as.. I didn't fall down a flight of stairs or anything) ..

What is wrong with me!??!

Probably TMI, TQC

Inspired by comments on this post.
A couple years ago I was out power-sledding (basically like water-skiing, except you're being dragged on a sled behind a massive wood-truck down an icy country road, preferably at night) and I ended up smashing into a culvert pipe shin-first. I didn't break my leg, surprisingly, but I ended up with this massive bruise - it started out swollen to about the size of half a grapefruit, but then the bruise spread all the way down my leg and turned my foot, especially the heel area, a nasty purple/green color. It took about a month to heal and I still have a thumb-sized dent in the spot that connect with the metal rim of the pipe. Why did the bruise spread like that? And why is there still a dent?

This might get tl;dr, but I need advice! I've been working at a job since graduating college and make ok money and excellent benefits. I actually enjoy the work. However, my manager frequently bullies me and speaks badly about me to others within earshot. She does passive aggressive shit to my face, accusing me of not working and constantly making remarks about how I dress, how I style my hair, the fact that I don't wear make-up, etc.

She on the other hand, is desperate to get pregnant and goes on and on (we're talking hours a day) about her fluids, ovulation tests, her prime sexual positions to conceive and so on. She goes shopping every day (every) and frequently has conversations about her conceiving status over the phone and has her mom sit in her office for hours on end. I mean she does nothing.

Today was the last straw, she told me she'd fire me if my husband came into the office again (he came inside at 4:55 to pick me up at 5, it is -35 outside) and that I was being "delinquent" because I called another manager at another office with a question. I am actively seeking another job but know I have no one at my current position to give me a reference. If she found out I was seeking employment elsewhere I'd be fired on the spot. I absolutely cannot bring my concerns to her boss because she won't be fired (just had layoffs and she is "needed"), and she would know it was me and I would be fired.

So, what should I say in an interview about why I have no references/why I am leaving?

Bonus Q: I have been keeping logs of how many hours she is actually at her desk and how many she is at the mall. Also recordings of her outbursts. Do I give this to her boss after I leave just to be a bitch?

Or...

I don't want to mind you, the thought just occurred to me the other day

Do you take your showers at night or in the morning?

Within the next two months, we'll have an extra two adults in my house. Should we make up a schedule for showers and stick to them, or just let everyone in the house know that we'll be taking a shower at that particular moment?*

*If someone is in the shower, no one else can use the water in the house...so either way, people need to know that you're in there.

How come sometimes when you meet a goal, it doesn't feel as "YIPPEEE!!!" as you thought it would?

I had a goal of attaining a certain GPA during my first 2 years of college by this time because it's when I send in my transcript to transfer schools. I met the goal, but I feel nothing. It seems like imagining the achievement was better than the feeling of actu
