If the grad schools I am applying to require that I have 3 people send letters of recommendation, would it be bad if I have 4 letters sent and not just 3?

It's 12:32 CST on Christmas! Where are you? Why?

Job huntin'

I just emailed my cover letter and resume to a preschool in the Boston area. I am currently living in Connecticut, but planning to relocate once I get a job. My resume has my current address on it. I'm worried about being out of state affecting my chances for getting a call for interview. I do have a background with the school, however. It is on the campus of and affiliated with the college I graduated from (Lasell College). I did some student teaching there while in college and the former director of the school was my faculty advisor. The current director was a teacher there at the time but I'm not sure if I knew her or not. I don't remember the names of the teachers I worked with since I did so much student teaching with different teachers.

So, TQC, do you think being out of state will affect my chances for this job?

Will being an alum of Lasell and having been a student teacher at the preschool in the past help? If so, how much do you think it might help?

I really want this job. My experiences student teaching at this school were great and I would love to be a full time teacher there.

What's the best music player, in terms of SHUFFLE. I have everything loaded into iTunes, but I'm tired of hearing things from the same artist. I have 40GB of music up in here, I shouldn't here two Yoko Ono songs in less than 20 minutes

I've got some Christmas money today and I'd like to use a bit of it restocking my herbal tea stash. Can someone recommend a good online herbal tea shop with pretty decent prices? Bonus points if they stock other fun things like hand made soap or incense.

1) If you celebrate Christmas, do you still receive presents, or is it basically just a time for your family to get together?

2) Have you ever had red velvet cake? If you have, did you like it? My mom made a red velvet cake for our Christmas get together, at my insistence. She put a little too much cocoa in the cake for my tastes, but the cream cheese icing she made is absolutely delicious.

3) Why do my fingernails hate me? They don't seem to grow past a certain point, and they're also extremely weak, which makes them practically useless for whatever I might need them for. Any advice on how to make them stronger and longer?

This is a question for those who have seen The Oh in Ohio. (Very funny movie, but the ending was a bit disappointing, IMO.)

NOW it says: "network service unavailable network data services are currently unavailable. either your GPRS APN setting is incorrect or your account is not configured for GPRS"

Merry Christmas, God hates you!

A family of three is homeless tonight, their house off Main Street in Stoughton destroyed in a Christmas Eve fire. Neighbors say an explosion started it all.

It's not the kind of holiday anyone imagines, but this family, now without all of their belongings, is just thankful to be alive. Neighbors say things could have been much worse.

Neighbor Matt Konicek says, "I couldn't believe how fast it was." Konicek was out clearing snow from his driveway when the fire started. He says, "Basically it was just a loud boom and the whole side of the house just blew off and I could see in my neighbor's living room."

NBC 15 spoke to a man who lives in the house who says he, his fiancé and her daughter all got out of the building OK. He's obviously very shaken up but thankful everyone's all right.

So my friend got pregnant by accident with a FWB situation (they dated before, he's cheated on her several times, they broke up, were FWB while he's dating someone else that she didn't know about, LOL DRAMA). She wants nothing from him: no money, no things, etc. She doesn't even want him to see the child and says she isn't putting his name on the birth certificate. But she told him about it because she said he has the right to know that he fathered a child.

My question is this: If she doesn't want him to even see the child, should she have said anything to him at all?

My mom is now scared that my friend may run into a lot of legal problems as a result of this guy being told about the child. What legal problems, if any, could she run into? Will this end up in a Jerry Springer-esque situation?

So, I gave this guy from the education department of my university a tour of the school where I am student teaching. He's in a program similar to mine, so he's a fellow education student. I just googled my full name (first and last), and it turns up on his personal blog as how I was his guide back in October. It goes on to say some fairly disparaging and negative things about the quality of the school and myself as a guide.

I am pissed, and embarassed. I don't google my own name all that much, and this entry has been up since the middle of October. I have no idea who has seen it.

Is it within my right to send him a sort of nasty email on Christmas? I barely know this guy - we had to connect with people within the department to make observations of other middle and high schools in the area. I visited him, in his school, then he came to see mine. TQC, what would you do?

Can anyone please link me to the video of the kids who all cry when they find out they're going to Disney world?? Thanks!

Or, if you don't care- did your parents ever surprise you with a trip as a present?

merry christmas, everyone!

hey TQC,

- do you have a traditional present, or stocking stuffer that you receive every year?
i always get a chocolate orange, and a pomegranate in my stocking.

- is there a fun story/reason behind that gift?
when i was little, my dad would get my mom a chocolate orange, and i would steal them, so she just started getting them for me. the pomegranate is because when she was little, my mom's grandparents had a pomegranate tree, and she thought they looked like big red ornaments.

TQC, I'm feeling indecisive and need help deciding a couple things.

1. Should I go see a movie today? Even though I normally don't, I'd be going alone because no one else is around to go with me. (I rarely go to the movies anyway)

2. If I do go to the movies, should I see Bedtime Stories or The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons? If it makes any difference Bedtime stories runs 1 hour and 35 minutes while The Curious Case of Benjamin Buttons runs 2 hours and 48 minutes.

Please help me decide, TQC.

ETA: I think I am going to go see Benjamin Buttons. It is really long, but definitely looks better than Bedtime Stories. Thanks for helping me decide, TQC. =)

Because of the movie channels I've never had to buy DVDs before, but I'm moving out and won't be able to afford to keep the movie channels.

There are about 50 million movies I like, but which do I buy?

TQC, my 21 year old brother is home for Christmas. Last night he told me that the only fast food place in the town he lives in is a Subway. Knowing him, that is probably all he lives on.

Should I run out and buy my brother a Subway gift card?

Yes - buy it now so you can give it to him when you go to your parents' house at 3:30 today.
Yes - but just give it to him in a few days so you don't have to rush to find it today
Don't bother buying one
Other - (What?!)

ETA I believe Walmart might sell Subway gift cards. I know they sell them for other restaurants and stores. And Walmart should be open today here.

Should we or shouldn't we?

This year for Christmas, my father gave everybody gifts that he picked up at random (he admitted this), which, along with earlier behavior, has really upset some of us kids. He's been drinking and pretty much ignoring us while he dates his new squeeze, guilt-tripping us consciously, and basically showing no thought in his interactions with us at all. He got money from a former relative to take my sister and I out, and he spent it on repairing a second car he doesn't actually need, and he wanted to go spend the weekend with his girlfriend at her house when it was the last weekend he would see me for at least a year.

In short, he's kind of acting like a teenager. He has been going through a divorce, but he's really hurting and worrying us, and since he's gone AWOL, I've basically had to parent my little sister yet again, and I don't think that's fair.

Should we talk to him, TQC?

• When/why did you first realize your parents were fallible and imperfect? Is there a specific moment? Mine is more or less recorded on VHS, I think...the first argument I ever had with my mom, implying that I thought she could be wrong about anything.

• When, if ever, did your parents doing something weird or unexpected start causing you to wonder if their memory or health were doing o.k.? Sorry if this is poorly worded. I haven't been home in ages and every time I come home I start noticing startling changes...not always bad, but often unsettling. I remember when I never used to question or consider my parents' health or age because they seemed invincible.

Another ipod question...

I will be purchasing a new ipod in the near future. I cannot decide between a 120 gig Classic or a 16 gig nano. I was absolutely sure about getting the classic because I love the idea of having all of that space but then I heard about the down side of having a hard drive based ipod (the classic) versus the flash drive ipod (the nano). I've heard that the hard drive can easily be damaged when being carried. I intend on having it on my dock and taking it while I walk...I've been contemplating starting to run and I'm scared that taking the classic on a run may damage it. What do you think? Do you have a classic and do you work out with it and does it skip? Which should I buy?

Happy Holidays, everyone!

Did you do a White Elephant Gift Exchange with anyone this year? What did you take with you to exchange? What did you get? What was the worst gift someone brought to the exchange?

We did one with my dad's family. We took a bottle of wine and a flashlight because my family is weird and likes practical stuff like that. I got a set of wine glasses and my husband got a blanket, so we made out well. The worst present someone brought was an extremely ugly light up fake ice diorama thing of a nativity set.

my dad is an adorable, very petite, 61 year old man. he says things like "we're getting him rock hero or guitar band" and "that band you like, linkin county, (linkin park) was on tv last night."

who is the most adorable person in your family?
can you give us an example of what they do that's so endearing?

my brother and i were playing rock band and my mom and dad were playing with a flying bat toy they got to fuck with our cats. my mom threw the thing in the air to get it flying and then stepped backwards off the bottom step. she nearly stepped on a cat, stumbled backwards, and landed on a chair, nearly taking my brother and the rockband drumset out in the process. i laughed so hard my eyes were tearing up like crazy and i had to hand off the guitar to my other brother.

the flying bat toy also hit several people today and i kept having to duck while i was playing rock band because it was zooming haphazardly around our heads.

anyone else have hilarious mishaps today?

Paging TQC, master auto mechanic!

So, for the past month or so, my car's clutch has been leaking brake fluid into the footwell of my car. Is this something that's a simple fix, or am I gonna have to get my entire clutch replaced? It shifts fine still, and it's an '03 Ford Focus, if that is an issue.

EDIT: How much would said repair be?

EDIT2: Yep, it's the master cylinder, apparently the seal wears out, causing it to leak-- from what I've searched, it's hella common with manual Focuses. Going to get the part and have my mechanic friend come by and help me replace the MC tomorrow, because I'm too cheap to pay for a shop to fix it. :/

The other day, I was baking cupcakes and my smoke detector went off. Normally when that happens, my 6'5 roommate turns it off. But he's away for the holidays and my 5'2 self had to do it. I brought in an Ikea stepstool to stand on (the plastic ones that little kids use to wash their hands). I stood on the stool and I still couldn't reach the smoke detector, so I jumped to try and reach it. I missed the button, put my foot through the stool (cutting it up), and fell. It would have been embarrassing if other people were around.

And then you hear these loud footsteps, and its Bill Sykes, stomping up and down the bar counter singing "My Name" in a high squeaky voice. Its endlessly amusing to me, matched only by imagining Nancy singing "As Long as He Needs Me," holding Bill in her palm. "That's why he needs her," I think to myself. "He can't get around by himself!" and by the end of the number, Nancy shoves Bill into her apron pocket. I find this endlessly amusing and I laugh out loud like the insane person that I am.

Nightie night!

Hello TQC!

I would like to know about how you sleep.

What position do you usually sleep in?

Are there any specific requirements you have for sleep time? Eg. wadrobe door must be closed, must be completely dark, no watches/clocks ticking.

How do you arrange the blankets when you sleep?

What is your duvet/comforter/doona cover like?

Have you had any good dreams lately? Bad dreams? Recurring dreams? Do tell!

Informational question

I've never flown during Christmas because it usually doesn't come up, but I have a flight tomorrow through Minneapolis-- I'm supposed to change planes there in the evening. It only recently dawned on me that this in itself might be a HUGE MISTAKE and I'll either get stuck in Minneapolis overnight or will experience other stressful hells that will basically make it not worth it to even try going.

Based on your past experiences, how likely is it that I'll get stuck overnight? How likely is it that other airport-related things will grate on my nerves so badly that my entire trip will be ruined? Should I even go? I usually am not stressed out by planes during summer travel, so how much worse can it really be?

It would be extra super helpful if you know someone who flew through there in the past few days and how screwed they were.

killahnatalie wants to know:

Do you know anyone that has a significant other whose parents and siblings buy them a ton of expensive stuff? Does it annoy you?

I have a friend who dates a guy that his mom bought and paid for all her pageant things, bought her a Wii, payed for her prom stuff, bought expensive cowboy boots, ihome, gave a computer to her. This highly bothers me because I think my parents would murder me if I happily took things from my boyfriend's parents. I feel that it is one thing if the S.O.'s parents buy things for you but doing everything is rediculous.

Long story short. I got more money than I expected to this Christmas, my paycheck is going to be more than usual because of overtime I put in. I have not bought myself something that wasn't food in close to six months, and I want a new phone. However, the phone is $100 [$50 after mail-in rebate] and I feel nervous spending that kind of money out of habit.

Dawson's Creek
Neither, you have shit taste in TV shows, go and die

These are my two current options. I'm on Season 2 of Dawson's Creek and Season 5 of Friends. I am bored.

Is there anything you really like to do that most people wouldn't necessarily find as fun?

I LOVE writing in birthdays/anniversaries/whatever on my new calendar. I'm trying to wait until it's closer to New Years but I'm dying to open it and write everything in!

I also love really congested roads. What stresses most people out, I find incredibly fun.

Will you explain to me the story behind Thanksgiving?
The Wikipedia entry is too long for me to be bothered with it, I am looking for the abridged version.
