Why is the guy who is house sitting my neighbor's house yelling variations of fuck every 2 minutes? This is the 3rd night in a row I've listened to it..he does it every night from 10-midnight, sometimes later..

Should I go tell him these walls are REALLY thin and he should STFU?

I went shopping at a baby store today and got some things on sale. I thought the prices seemed higher than online. Low and behold, when I went on their online store the prices are significantly lower.

If I take in the ads from online will I get the difference back?

Why are the online prices cheaper than in store?


*The clothes would still be cheaper even after shipping and tax, due to sales and coupons.

Zombies!

After playing Left 4 Dead on Xbox religiously, my boyfriend and I are thinking of having a Zombie Movie Night. We've downloaded a few zombie movies from a top ten list that we thought sounded awesome, but I wanted to take it a step further, make it extra scary, or zombie-apocalypse-like. I was thinking I could dye our popcorn some creepy color like green or something weird like that.

Any ideas on how I can make this night and the environment more zombie themed and scary?

Thanks!

So I'm ridiculously sick and want to take something, especially if it helps me sleep. I went to get my Nyquil and it expired and June. I'm not really ok with going out now and there's nothing else. Do you think it's ok to take even though it has expired? Or is it a big don't to take it expired?

Thanks.

oil, rice, sazon, sofrito, beans, and water

anyone have any suggestions? all the recipes i found online have a bunch of extra shit, and no oil

Christmas Party

So the bar that I hang out at is having a Christmas dinner and we need an idea for a competition. For the Thanksgiving party they had a pie eating contest. What kind of Christmas themed competition can we have?


For those that don't care: I'm currently posting from the bar. Where do you normally post from?

so my friend (of rainbow toe socks fame) has to get his not-girlfriend something for christmas, because she got something for him. he has no clue what to get her. so my question is: what are good generic gifts for a semi-typical 19 year old female college student, preferably ones that appear to be thought out. i suggested a gift card but he has no idea what store she might want to go to. i also suggested a pipe since she smokes teh weed, but he says she only smokes with him so that's out too.

this is kind of a lame post, sorry. : \

I know someone who was in a 3 year relationship with an emotionally abusive boyfriend. She has now been with her current boyfriend for 4 years.There was a year between the ex and current b/f. She still harbors an extreme hate for the ex boyfriend.


What, in your opinion does that mean?



On a lighter note, what does someone have to do to you to make you think they are into you?

Sorry for posting this, I usually like to ask random questions but we're too confused and we need to know your opinion..

My good friend met this guy online and she's been talking to him for 3 weeks now, everyday (I've known the guy for 4 years he's sweet but a bit off the track sometimes but still very caring and interresting)
They plan to meet in about two week at a party i'm planning and as the date approaches, they feel closer and plan to date..

Tonight they were talking about food and how much they would like to go on a date in a nice restaurant, my friend told her she wanted to try everything food wise at least once in her life, to what he said "ok i'd like to try anal sex i never have before"

They talked about cuddling and kissing before but they never talked about sex, when he tried to last night, she told him it was too early and that she wanted to wait after they meet to do so.
She told him that she didn't mind talking about sex, but that it was too early to what he said "ok im sorry wasnt trying to offend or upset you just was making a statement"

so TQC, What was he trying to say?

(no subject)

should i attempt to talk to my ex-fling?

heres the bg story: we talked for a bit then hooked up but we stopped talking, she now has a new gf of like a year or so that shes inlove with, but they fight a lot and break up every other week and her girlfriend treats her like shit, and i know i could for a fact, treat her better haha. so should i not interfere with things and just wait till shes single?(but they always get back together so the chances of her being single could be slim:/) or should i just tell her straightup she should get with me?haha

and for those who dont care:

adoption

1. What do you have in mind concerning pet adoption? I've always thought if I were to adopt a pet from a rescue it would be from a greyhound rescue.

2. What do you have in mind concerning child adoption? I've always thought if I were to adopt a child they would be from the USA where I live because that's what I feel most responsible for. Yes I know the difficulties, but still.

3. Do you ever mull topics over in your head that you'd probably never act on? What are some of the topics? Seems it is a habit with me. I got all kinds of junk stewing in my skull.

Edited for clarity, I hope! :)

i haven't been sleeping well and i'm really tired, my anxiety is really bad and i'm depressed. with the weather work is going to be twice as stressful as normal and there will be no way to get out if i start feeling worse.

and i really don't ever ditch work because of how i'm feeling emotionally(at least not without putting in a decent amount of time that day).

I don't know that much about business firing policies, but my dad owns a store and has made it sound like it is nearly impossible for an employer to give a bad recommendation to one of her/his former employees' prospective employers, and can only confirm that said person did work there.

But what if the employee was fired for stealing or some other pretty bad offense? Is an employer legally allowed to tell this to a prospective employer? Or does it depend on local regulations?

Hey guess what. I just realized theres only 6 days until Christmas. I also just realized I haven't even started buying Christmas presents.

My boyfriend wants some video games. He has a PS2... will you suggest some games for me? He likes games where you shoot people and blow shit up (Metal Gear type games... he plays that all the freaking time). I know y'all hate these posts but at least I gave you more information that "HAY GUYS MY BOYFRIEND'S 23 TELL ME EXACTLY WHAT HE WANTS" D:

Also, his dad has this stupid gift exchange every year. All the girls bring a girls gift and the boys bring a boys gift, then we randomly pick one out of a bag filled with presents of our own gender. I'll probably be the youngest at his house for Christmas so I need a generic girls gift for anyone between the ages of 25-80.

THANKS TQC.

Coupon Book

I am making a homemade "Coupon" book as my husband's Christmas present. 

Here are the ideas I have so far to include:
1. One hour couples garage time
2. Free homemade meal of your choice
3. $50 snowmobile parts credit
4. $100 truck parts credit
5. 1 hour massage
6. 1 "get out of jail free"
7. 1 free movie rental and viewing (I don't like most of the movies he likes )
8. 1 free meal at restaurant of choice
9. 1 weekend outing of choice
10. 1 mystery evening (must give 5 days notice)
11. 5 free compliments
12. 1 mystery gift (must give 5 days notice)

Are these good ideas?  What else can I add?

Have you ever done this for your SO or another person you are close to?

ETA: Garage time is me helping him in the garage...he is a gearhead and often needs help with things (truck repair, motorcycle mods, etc)...but I hate doing it because I know almost nothing about working in the garage.  So it means exactly what it says.  Garage time.

ETA2: Ok, so apparently it sounds like I'm a controlling bitch.  ; )  So, I should take out the ones that are "choices" (in order to stop making it sound like he doesn't have any to start with) and put what in instead?

I intended them as "free passes"...where I couldn't say "no" even if I didn't feel like doing something at a particular time.  I do all these things with him without coupons.

Sub-question, which is the best stand alone VOIP phone? By stand alone, I mean one which just hooks up to the router without needing to be plugged into a computer.

During my annual Christmas party (which is tonight) I usually do mock Oscar nominations so my friends and I can give out or own mock awards during the Oscars.

My brother has had his heart broken by a girl bitch. I've never seen him so upset. How should I cheer him up? I've already offered to finance a trip to a strip club (shot down), and have offered him plenty herb (not shot down, but hasn't really cheered him up for long). I can't stand seeing him like this, especially so close to Christmas.

stupid white elephant gift exchange

So I totally forgot that today we are having a white elephant gift exchange at work and I have no gift.

Since it is white elephant, I figure I can just grab something stupid from my classroom. I teach preschool.

What should I wrap? I am thinking like one dry erase marker, maybe a half roll of tape, a used crayon, whatever.

Mac iPhoto

I hate iPhoto. It's so stupid, I've had a Mac for a littler over a year and once this shits out I'm going back to a PC. Anyway, I hate how you can't just make folders in the "pictures" folder, and go through them like you can on a PC. I hate how when you import your pictures into iPhoto and delete the crappy ones, they're still in your photo folder in the "pictures" thing. Grrr.

Is there any other programme or anything that I can use that isn't like iPhoto and more like PC's photo ogranising system? I really like organisation and I'm at my wits end, I can't stand my messy computer anymore!

Thank you!

My friend is throwing a holiday party tonight, and I'm invited, but she will be the only person there that I know. I am super crazy shy, and I can see myself being that awkward girl who sits on the couch, not saying anything. So...I'm a little reluctant to go. Plus, there are transportation issues, and I have to wake up early tomorrow, but it's mainly my being all lame and shy that makes me really not want to go.

Should I suck it up and go?

If yes, how the hell do you talk to people you don't know? At all?! Especially when they know each other?

If not, when I call her and tell her I can't make it, should I tell her that I don't want to go because I'm shy, or give her one of my other reasons?

This year is the first year that I haven't made a Christmas list for my dad. Last year I made one and was really disappointed because I got nothing that was on that list. What I did get was a pajama set that didn't fit and I couldn't return, a movie I already had, a bunch of low fat, sugar free cookies (his wife is on a low fat diet and spreads it to everyone) and a stuffed lion that sings a ZZ Top song when you squeeze its paw.

Have you ordered a cake from Charm City Cakes?

I was reading the FAQ and saw this:

How much are your cakes?
Because all of our cakes are priced individually by the complexity of their design, we do not have a standard price list.

Due to the care we give to each cake and the one-of-a-kind nature of each order, we require a minimum of $1000 on all of our cakes.

Then I went o_O $1000 for a CAKE??

Today was the first considerable snow fall this year.
I'm driving down a side street that hasn't been plowed, in the tracks of the cars that had gone before me. I see a man walking in the middle of the street on these tracks. As I approach he REFUSES to move out of the way. I wasn't driving fast enough to swerve, but I had to get out of the "tracks", as did the car behind me. The guy gave me this face that pretty much said he was trying to challenge me.

...Would you want to run that motherfucker over too?
Granted, you can't get the gist of my anger since you didn't see his face.

What would you have done in that situation?
(The car behind me ended up sliding pretty badly because of it, my car was fine. If there were other cars coming, we probably would have gotten into an accident)

I really wanted to stop my car, get out and yell at him, but that wouldn't have been very Christmas cheery :(

2. which movie should i watch? (i'm in the mood for kiddy movies) Horton Hears a Who.........or.......The Little Mermaid: Ariel's Beginning?

Is Trend Micro a good anti-virus program?
I have the free version of AVG, is that good enough or should I look into buying something as well?
if I should, any suggestions?

Another annoying Christmas gift question, I APOLOGISE IN ADVANCE.

I got a friend for Secret Santa. I've got some pretty good ideas. We have this sort of tradition of buying each other HSM related presents as a joke. Do you think I should continue this tradition as her Christmas gift or get her something she'd actually like in a non-LOL-I-LOVE-THIS! joke kind of way? If I did get her something HSM related she'd know it was me right away too, lol

Hi can anyone tell me of a college, either online or in Columbus Ohio (aside from CSCC), where I could still apply for classes starting January/February that has internet classes and would give me enough excess financial aid to afford housing/books/classes. Any helps appreciated.

I just got my first paycheck from my first job and I want to cash it tomorrow! I don't have enough in my checking account to cover it, so my bank won't cash it....and it's too big for my local supermarket to cash it. The check was issued from Bank of America...will they cash it?

Would they cash it if I....made them cookies?

A friend gave me a fairly expensive ($40?) Christmas gift. I didn't know that she was going to be giving me anything so I was thinking of mailing something to her house.

Should I do flowers, or some kind of gift basket? I don't know her well enough to really get her something else, unless you have any amazing suggestions.

Which would you rather get?

Would you say that you have a more broad range of interests or a more narrow range? What are your main interests (in regards to anything)?

What do you think your friends would say about you in regards to this question?

I did something really stupid and agreed to dog-sit someone's dog from tomorrow night until Sunday at around noon. The dog is supposed to be walked sometime at night on Saturday and then again on Sunday morning.

The problem is, I did all this knowing that I am going to a party on Saturday night, and it's not just any party...it begins at 7 p.m. and I don't expect to be home until 6 or 7 in the morning on Sunday. I'm also supposed to be at the party at 6 (or even a little earlier) to help set the table.

The dog owners said they're walking the dog at 3 or 4 in the afternoon and I'm supposed to walk him "later". The latest I could possibly walk him is around 5 because then I need to get my stuff together to go to the party.

Should I skip walking the dog right after he's already been walked and make him wait over 12 hours to go out again? Or should I tell my friends I won't be able to come as early as they think and try to squeeze in a slightly later walk and only show up at the party about 15 minutes early? Or should I force myself to go home from the party at 2 in the morning and see if he wants to go out then (which might be a waste because he might be asleep)?

I know, I should have just said "no" to the dog sitting. I don't know what I was thinking. But now it's too late. And I only see these friends once every few months so the party is really important to me. I'm stupid.

if you don't celebrate Christmas, what do you usually do on Christmas day?

my mom is out of town for Christmas this year so my dad and I are at home with nothing much to do. what should we do?

HYPOTHETICAL

Let's say you and your friend agree to a Christmas gift exchange with a limit of $50. You go out and buy her a nice bottle of perfume that cost $45 + a nice card. When you open your gift, you see that it's a pretty makeup gift set, something you could probably use but never really bring yourself to buy. It's worth probably around $55 or so. HOWEVER, her sister works for the company that sells the makeup brand and she probably paid no more than $20 for it. How would you feel about the situation?

TQC, my sleep schedule is entirely fucked. I've been avoiding sunlight for the last few days, since I'm in the habit of going to bed right before the sun comes up and then not waking up until it goes down.

Am I turning into a vampire? Does this mean I'm going to start sparkling, and then stalking the plain girl that lives down the road? Should I just kill myself now, to save myself from becoming that lame? Help me, TQC!

Oh, and what are you eating right now? I'm considering going downstairs to search for food, but I think all I have is Easy Mac. Is it worth getting up for that?

1) When was the last time your eyes saw a different word in text when it was really something else?
2) Was your version funnier than the actual version?

Yes. I was on my e-mail homepage a few minutes ago and saw "Billie Jean sues Wacko" instead of "Billie Jean Sues Jacko". It was pretty funny.

My job of a year ended today. I now find myself with a lot of free time, unaware as to what I should do with it.
I want to take up a hobby!
Which hobby should I take up?
Preferably nothing too expensive [I AM NOW UNEMPLOYED!]. So no flying lessons.
