If you HAD to spend a day with either Sandra Lee, Bobby Flay or Rachel Ray, who would you pick?
If you don't know who these people are - what's an awesome book or movie that you can recommend?
Will you post them (or one of them) for TQC to see?
If you have it online, will you post one of your senior pictures or a picture you had "professionally" done?
If not, what do you regret doing or not doing in High school or college? Even if you're still in the process, maybe something you would have done sooner.

I have a wet-to-dry hair straightener (this one, actually) and I recently started using it again after getting a hair cut and dye job.
Now that I'm using it again, I've noticed how utterly gross the plates/grooves are on the straightening part. The grooves that pull the water up and out are the worst part.
How do I get the straightener clean (or at least less gross)? I've tried hot water and a q-tip, but it took some work and isn't really time-efficient. q-tips do fit perfectly in the grooves, however.
Serious and non serious appreciated. :P
If you don't care:
My roommate loved his Christmas present, but says he's still working on mine. He's good at construction and mechanical things (so in theory he could be building me something), and he's amazing at photography.
What's my roomie making me for Christmas? To the best of my knowledge, he's not into making gifts.....
(again, srs and non srs welcome)
What's the current color of your hair?
What's the previous color of your hair right before your current haircolor?
I just got mine in color dark auburn brown (very rich :O) from being medium ash blonde (not real color) I was over a half year. Huge difference!
What are your plans for tomorrow?
Taking a road trip to the other side of Virginia for family reunion of my mom's side. I haven't had seen many of those relatives in almost 10 years and I'm so looking forward to see most of them again.
Today he was like "Why don't you just replace your video card?" when I commented on my monitors resolution. This leads me to believe he has changed his mind. Not like.."Oh well you'll have this one soon!" =( I kinda want it really bad TQC. Kind a lot.
Note: 100% his offer. I did not ask for it.
I will love you 4evuh for a nod in the right direction.
**Does anyone thing the old 3d is better than the new 3d? Those plastic glasses are always too small for my giant melon.

I am travelling to NY and would like to get some ink done while i am there. I will only be there for 15 days but I don't want to just do a walk-in. So I guess I am looking for a good place, that will be able to fit me into their schedule for two sessions one week apart.
So, I guess a follow up question is does anybody know any tattoo artists in NYC that are willing to be contacted through e-mail?
EDIT: FUCK! I just realized that it is 4:45 AM on the east side at this point. My chances of getting a response are slim to shit. Awesome.
What are you doing for new years?
what would the food or position be?
Does anybody else think that Jim Bob has some really fucked up control issues? I was watching it with my mom and she was like, "omg this man, he so crazy, he keeps her pregnant! He always holds people by their two shoulders!" I mean, why exactly is he so weird? He's definitely weird.
Or just like, what do you think of the Duggars?
What in the world are you actually supposed to do during phone sex?
My boytoy wanted to have phone sex tonight, but it totally caught me off guard & I couldn't do it. I'm a pretty sexual person, but this has got me really shy.
Who would drop everything and travel with;
A. The Doctor from "Doctor Who"?
B. Doc Brown from "Back to the Future"?
C. Q from "Star Trek: The Next Generation"?
If you could be the patron saint of anything, what would you choose?
Another Non-Geeky question;
Apparently snow globes are deadly.
With that said, what would be the silliest way to die?
You're sick and weak and coughing a lot, so you go to the doctor and after numerous tests, you're informed that you have a super rare disease that's never been seen in your country and only affects like 5 people a year. This disease is fatal and because you waited til when you did to see the doctor, you really don't have much longer to live. Just 1 hour, give or take.several minutes. You can obviously go and do what you can to savor these last 60 minutes or so, but the doctor makes you an offer. If you submit both your lungs now, while they're alive, he will pay your family $50,000. It will be used to study this rare disease and there's a benefit to having the organ 'fresh'. If you take this option, you will be wheeled into the ER and you'll die on the operating table. All in all, you live about a half hour away. So, the question is, how will you spend your last hour?
How did you know your SO was the person you wanted to spend the rest of your life with?
I think it was a guy talking to a girl. Someone he had just broken up with, or just had a very close relationship with.
The scenario goes something like, they're parting ways, and the guy says to the girl, "I don't know. I just always felt like somehow, I'll be ninety years old and walking down the street, and I'll turn a corner, and there you'll be."
Like their lives were tied together that way.

(ANSWER IN ALL CAPS, PLEASE. OVER-USAGE OF PUNCTUATION IS A PLUS.)
I did a year of college and then had to drop out this october because of health problems, and now I dont know when I'll realistically be able to go back. There's a course offered at a college in my province that I'm really interested in (library and information technician, if youre curious) and I figure it's the best option for me because of the situation.
So I guess I'm asking for experiences, anecdata, etc about correspondence/online learning.
And because that question is kinda boring, what's your favourite thing to have for breakfast? I just had some Christmas dessert, but I'm REALLY craving hash browns.
Back in the mood for fantasy/supernatural. I'm especially fond of urban fantasy/supernatural-- Neil Gaiman, Charles de Lint, Alice Borchardt, Sergei Lukyanenko, etc. But also general fantasy with shapeshifters, avatars, non-human races, dragons, etc-- Robin Hobb, other authors who escape me at eight in the morning.
Any suggestions for good books and authors? In particular more obscure ones, I know about the various steadfasts of fantasy.
How much did it suck?

3) Is there a minimum age requirement for wearing a house coat? My grandma got me one for Christmas and it's cute, but I feel like a little old lady walking around in it.
4) What is the most interesting holiday present you received? I got a box of keys from my Mom - including a set of antique jailer's keys. I was so excited!

What are your snoring remedies? Do those nose strip things work?
ETA: Now that I have gotten out of bed, he has of course stopped snoring. Other than death, what is an appropriate punishment for him when he wakes up in two hours?
I'm thinking Ikea and the mall or the city.
I was excited to get my flannel sheets (lame, I know), but then the weather turned from below zero to 55 degrees and raining! If I put them on the bed now, I'll roast to death at night...

Back during the original series of Star Trek each ship had a specific symbol that its crew wore on their shirts. The thing in my icon was the one specific to the Enterprise. By the time the first movie rolled around, it was suddenly the symbol for Starfleet in general and it's remained that way pretty much ever since.
- What does it stand for? Is there a specific meaning behind it?
- Why did they switch to that particular symbol over all the others?
Do you believe you are worth what your SO gives to you?
I'd imagine there'd be some sort of of terrible fight between the two, resulting in loss of limb and broken hearts. Or possibly the iMac would make condescending remarks while the 360 gets the Red Ring of Death.
Silliness aside, is it possible?
40, because I live in a small town and we have a very small school district. The elementary and high schools are connected.

1) Which iPod should I get?
I am considering any of them but the shuffle.
It will be a late Christmas gift and super-late birthday gift (my birthday was in July, lol) from my parents. As such, price is not a factor, though my guilt over the price is.
Please justify your answer (srs and non-srs answers welcome)!

2) What do you have engraved on the back of your iPod? What is its significance?
When referring to accents, how come when it's a state, the name stays the same but when it'sa country it becomes its adjective form? (New York accent Vs American accent for example)
What are your favorite tqc posts/questions/drama/anything of 2008 and why?
I'm a HUGE fan of the strippers that poo found. Most hilarious/entertaining thing I've seen in a long time. I don't remember who posted the question but it was something along the lines of "what questions would get asked in TQC if it were the 90's?" and it generated some awesome comments! And all the political drama crazies kept me entertained for a long time this year.

The printer is three years old; it's a Canon iP1800. When I tried to print a picture, the paper loaded crooked and then stopped printing. I'm not sure exactly how to fix it, since I've never really worked with a printer at home and don't have one on my computer. Mary says she's had her kids try to help her fix it, and had the same problem.
I guess my question is, should I even try to fix this thing, or does Mary need to get a new printer?

What's the stupid question you ever asked anyone in real life?
( Collapse )
I told my boss that next Sunday would be my last day. (We had previously discussed my leaving so this wasn't out of the blue...she actually asked me when I was going)
She then called me later on in the day to tell me that I won't be needed for my shift tomorrow or next week and that I should just pick up my money next Saturday.
Was this a passive aggressive move or was she just being nice?
Did she purposely screw me out of the $250 that I'd make, and planned on making?
(not that the girl in question shouldn't also get tested anyway, I'm just asking about the intention).
2) If you bought something small off ebay and it came well packaged but broken (although superglue would easily fix it) would you leave positive/neutral/negative feedback?
Is it weird for that to happen on a regular basis (with the same person)?
When was the last time you had not-sex that was better than penetrative sex?
So TCQ, do you think my dad is being irrational, or do you see where he is coming from?

We called the landlord a bunch of times and had to leave messages. They called us back once on Tuesday and said it would be fixed soon, they were just waiting for a part, but it hasn't been fixed yet. Its freezing temperatures outside and we have called them over and over again Tuesday and Wednesday but they don't answer. We left some messages but the never returned our calls. We didnt call on christmas since we weren't here but we called again today and we only get voicemail.
Please share any similar stories.
right now i'm so on edge every little thing makes me feel like i'm going to snap and freak out.
Anyone else feel this way?
So far, I have translations into French, Dutch, Swahili, German, Spanish, Italian and Ancient Greek. Any others? (If it's in a non-Latin alphabet, please try to transliterate.)
(Also, I realize that there may not be the entities I know as 'grasshoppers' in countries where some languages are spoken. If there is a comparable insect, however, that would be okay!)

Should I bother trying to get it repaired? I'm only going to be in this country eight more months. I have no idea how much it would cost to get it repaired but the only things "broken" are the back cover (slightly) and the little metal thing I slide my SIM card into.

Just so you know how they are... I watch sex & the city with them all the time, there are a few episodes that have gotten uncomfortable but basically it's okay. We watch occasional movies with sex scenes, but I certainly wouldn't bring out the pr0n. Monster's Ball was definitely one I wish I hadn't watched with Dad.
This year, there are many more African-American students (still about enough to count on maybe two hands, but more than my freshman and sophomore years). A senior African-American student brought the issue of not celebrating MLK Jr.'s birthday to the administration and "convinced" them to give students off for that day. We received a letter today addressing this change, but merely said "Monday the 19th has been dedicated a professional day for staff, so there will be no school for students to give teachers an opportunity to catch up on their work."
Although I was never really interested in making this a "day-off" holiday, I thought about the student who fought for this change and how he must be reacting to this "professional day."
Also, they decided that in order to make up for a lost day, the day would replace one of our snow days, so we're only allowed 2 days off without removing a day from Spring break / adding a day to the school year instead of the usual 3.
Is the administration refraining from regarding the day as what the day actually is on purpose or is there some underlying reason, like they're trying to avoid controversy or something?

What is more of an annoyance?
It is Saturday night and I am skint (i.e. no cash). My choices of entertainment include:
*Tidying the living room and hall (at the moment we're having to climb over drying racks to get out the front door)
*Watching a DVD/crap TV
*Browsing the internets for a new lamp
*Reading one of the four books I have on the go
Or can you lovely people suggest alternative entertainment that doesn't involve going outside and spending money? I don't want to go out because it's cold outside :(
EDIT: I am finding it a little amusing how many people want me to clean my living room. Perhaps I made it sound worse than it actually is. Does it matter if it's clutter and not dirty dishes etc?

Basically, I want about 500 (of 950) songs from my old iPod to go to my new nano. Do I just sync the nano to the old library and once every song has transferred delete the songs I don't want anymore from the nano? Will that delete the songs from my library as well? (That is what I want.) Can someone tell me or help me find instructions on how to do this without fucking it up?

Best job in the world?
I seriously love this movie and it's my all-time favorite movie ever in the entire world. And yet, so many people think it's stupid. I don't get it.
I was originally thinking of Bose noise reducing headphones, but they are ridiculously expensive and I don't think I need the noise reduction so much as the sound quality and comfort. Does anyone have any good, cost effective recommendations? Something that folds or is otherwise easy to transport is a plus.
