I need help!

I'm pretty fair skinned and have a short (chin length is longest) a-line hair cut. My guy accidentally gave me a really bad hickey... I tried covering it with makeup but the center is all purple and since I'm so pale, it made it stand out more rather than less because my neck is a little lighter than my face (used to have longer hair = less sun).

What tips/tricks/advice do you have?

Srs and non-srs but I really don't want to wear a scarf/turtleneck for the next week.

Dear TQC, I've got lots of questions!

Today, I bought a brand spanking new car for the first time in my life (Honda Accord).  I then proceeded to drive home and into the garage, or so I thought... I dented my rear passenger door, also put a scratch in it, and rubbed some paint off of the piece of metal that is directly next to that door.

1) What would you do? 

2&3) Besides cry? a lot?

I've got the dealer insurance, but I'm afraid that will increase my policy a WHOLE lot when I actually get my insurance in place.  So I'm trying to decide what to do.

4) Anyone know of places that fix dents/paint cheaply  (Chicago) ????  I just have a feeling that this sort of thing will happen to me a couple of times, as my eyes are not so great with distance and the car I had before was a lot smaller and easily fit into all sorts of spaces.

5) And for those of you who don't really care, could you post something funny?

When altering pants, is it easier to make them a half inch or so longer, or to make them 2 or 3 inches shorter?

ETA: I am absolutely not altering these things myself.  I was just wondering if I should buy the pants to be too long or too short, since I am 5'2" and pants that fit my awkward lower body off the rack do not exist.  It's 2am here, and it's a bit late to call the seamstress.

Will you share the last time you got something you really liked for a great price?

Was the price due to ignorance of the seller, your good hunting/shopping/bargaining skills, luck, some combination of two or more of these?

I got an oil warmer with a black metal bas and blue glass bowl with oil for about $6. The warmer was bought at the Veterans of America store and the oil was on sale at Bath and Body works.

Have you ever been anywhere with a SO or just a friend that you were romantically linked to and had one of their friends hitting on you? How did you react?

I was with my guy tonight and I swear his friend kept hitting on me and hinting that I should get with him whenever my guy walked out of the room. I was a little under the influence though, so maybe not. It was so awkward though. I just kind of laughed and didn't say anything.

Does this even make sense? Lol, I'm still a little messed up ;x

Would you defriended someone who posted lots of nudies, even if he/she did that for art photography?

I just did, since that person posted a couple of his "models" doing the public nudity on the streets which is highly disturbing. He complained that anyone "should" go naked on a Sunday morning anywhere, especially around the city. I find it difficult to respect him and his opinions at least.

However, sex in movies isn't referred to as sex scenes generally either but they are called love scenes even if it's just horny teens going at it and no one's feeling any love whatseover.

Why is that?

Ladies, when you're in a relationship with a guy do you have any rules about who says "I love you" first? Do you wait till he does it or do you just go ahead and do it if you feel like it?

Gift exchanging?

For Christmas, my mother gave me a Wii game called Carnival Games. A nice thought, but so far I can't bring myself to open it because I've never been a fan of carnival games in general (in fact, I kind of dislike carnival games), and I read some reviews that say the game gets old pretty quick.

What game should I exchange it for? (I already have Wii Sports, Mario Kart, Mario Galaxy, Rayman Raving Rabbids 1, and Wii Fit. I'm not a hard core gamer - the Wii is the first and only game system I have.). I'm willing to pay the difference for something more expensive.

Did you get anything for the holidays this year that you'll be exchanging? What did you get? What are you going to swap it for? Did you give anything to anyone that you expect they'll be returning/exchanging? Do you mind if they do that?

Do you think anyone would be interested in old sports team press kits?

I have a bunch of late 1960's era Oakland Raiders press kits that belonged to my father.

I haven't been interested in the Raiders since Howie retired but maybe there are apeshit fans out there who would gladly mortgage their house for these items?

giving cards.

The semi-new girl who works at my company's Boston office got everyone ,including me(even though I only work there about once a week), a Christmas card. She also got a box of chocolates for everyone to share. Since I know no one will probably will be thoughtful enough do anything nice for her; I figured I should be nice and get her something(read: I'm trying to get laid).

Because she doesn't actually celebrate Christmas, I figured I'd get her a New Years card. But a friend said that would be odd.

1.)Would it be odd?

I want to keep the gift limited to a card; I'd get candy but I'm not sure what kind she likes.
2.)What kind of card should I get instead?

What's the weirdest injury/accident you've ever heard of someone getting into, or have gotten into yourself?

I once fell while playing tag in grade school, hit my head on the ground, and got a tiny pebble stuck in my eardrum. I could hear it rattling when I shook my head. Getting it out required a team of emergency room doctors and a pointed metal stick. FUN.

You've been dating your next door neighbor since you were 13 years old, you grew up together. They are the love of your life and you get married young, around 20 or so. You both get sick, and find out you have a (treatable) genetic disease. Turns out your dad cheated with your spouse's mother, and you are half siblings. Do you stay together?

When was the last time you cried, and over what?

I got my grades today. I got A's and B's in everything but math, which I failed. My mom yelled at me and then my dad came home from church, and I just started crying. I was trying not to cry, but it didn't work.

2) Have you ever been misdiagnosed at the hospital?

Yes. When I was in fourth grade, I got sick. First my voice went hoarse and then I started coughing. After that, I couldn't breathe right. My parents took me to the emergency room, where they said I had the croup. A few days later, my mom took me to my pediatrician, who diagnosed me with bronchitis.

3) Have you ever had an allergic reaction to anesthesia or any other kind of medication?

Yes. I had to get an MRI. I have no clue what they gave me. When we left, my dad was carrying me out on my shoulders. I started punching him on the shoulders and everything. I got violent.

My mom and her husband just recently split up. His family called on Christmas morning to tell him that they didn't want him to bring her to Christmas dinner, they have always been mean to her and he never does anything about it. He brought her anyway and they essentially kicked her out, he just gave her his car keys and didn't say anything to her or his family and then stayed at dinner for the next five hours while she sat at home by herself. When he finally came home, she kicked him out of her house. Yesterday, me and her planned to go out for the day, so she called him and said he could come pick up some clothes and stuff he needed while we were gone. When we got home, he was just sitting on the couch watching TV. When she asked what he was doing there, he said, "I don't want to leave."

EDIT: She has owned this house for well over ten years. In fact, she bought it with my father when they were married and she was awarded the house in their divorce settlement. He moved in about four years ago when they got married.

This is unacceptable behavior, y/y?

Any help would be VERY much appreciated.

sex, duh

tqc, I know you are sick of all of my sex questions, so I'm going to ask them all all at once, so you can just ignore this post if you don't want to know.

1) If you're having casual sex with more than one person at a given time, are you obligated to tell them? Or, since it's just casual sex, does that not matter?

2) I've had a lot of sex and tried a lot of things. But despite all that, my favorite position is still the missionary position. Is that pathetic? I feel like guys are kind of disappointed when they find this out.

3) If you know you're going to be having sex with someone, is showing up to their house in just a trenchcoat and heels (with just some lingerie underneath) sexy or just trashy?

4) Is it selfish to expect more than one orgasm in a single instance of sex?

5) I think I might be a sex addict, but it's not negatively affecting my personal or business life. So should I be concerned? I know even being a functional alcoholic is considered damaging, but is the same true for sex addicts?

What is your biggest pet peeve?

Are all pet peeves generally caused by other people?

One of my largest pet peeves is people assuming I'm pregnant because I'm sick. It makes me absolutely livid to the point that I don't tell stupid people when I'm sick anymore.

My mother is a nurse and if I so much as even suggest that I have the runs I MUST be pregnant. It's so irritating.

Do you think nurses should be smarter than that?

what is a logon domain?

Any tips on easily determining what the logon domain is???

my new ipod classic

I know you guys may be over the ipod questions but I really need TQC's expertise.

I just got a classic 120 gig ipod and I'm putting my music on it. What are some songs/bands that you think I should put on my ipod? I'm not picky and I like pretty much everything. I guess another good question would be: who are some bands/musicians that you don't think get the attention they deserve? I'm really hoping to get an eclectic collection on my ipod.

Thank you!

ETA: Sorry guys, genres would help. Thanks Teefers.

I love the Raconteurs, Kings of Leon, Incubus, Deathcab, Vampire Weekend, Modest Mouse, Sufjan Stevens, Old No Doubt, Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Killers

I've got some Kanye West and MIA

most reliable used car

I'm looking to get a used car, no older than 2006, that is super reliable. I've done a bit of research and found that Toyotas, Hondas and the Ford Fusion are pretty reliable. Does anyone know if the Ford Focus and Hyundai Accent are reliable cars as well? I'm getting mixed opinions. I'd love any input or any suggestions for those cars or other reliable cars.

My roommate just asked me via email to move out by the beginning of term. This is in one week, and I am not even in town to find a new place, someone to take over my lease, move, etc. I am only going to be living with her for another 10 weeks, anyway.

Is this unreasonable? The situation is that we have different schedules and levels of cleanliness, and she thinks it's not working out; we don't fight or anything. I knew it wasn't working out well, but I had no idea she wanted to move out. I understand where she's coming from, but it seriously seems impossible for me to accommodate.

ETA: So what should I do? I emailed her saying I didn't know if it was actually feasible for me to do this, but should I still try to look for a new place? Won't it just be awkward now for us to continue living together?

I am going to El Paso on Tuesday. Should I go to the seedy hookah bar with my good friend Elise, or should we just go find a place to eat good Asian food? I think we should do both but I don't if we can afford it - As well, I don't usually smoke hookah and so sharing a small bowl with her might be too much for me. I haven't smoked in several months, either, and when I did it was usually one or two off of a whole bowl shared between several people.

Do colleges (ivy league in particular)ever accept applications after the deadline?

My teachers and counselor accidentally sent me their required recommendations in the mail instead of through the online 'common application' website. For the past couple of weeks I've been trying to contact them to no avail since it's winter break. Of the colleges I'm applying to, Brown, Stanford, and Yale require that teachers send their recommendations either through the common application or directly from the school with the attached forms. The final deadline is January 1st!! I have all of the other paperwork prepared-- should I submit it without the recommendations and send those in later, or will that screw me?

By the way, I've been trying to get these recommendations since September, and I just got them (the wrong ones) 1 1/2 weeks ago. I am really worried since the websites for the colleges say they will not accept any late or incomplete documents. Also, I'm no longer in high school, so I can't go down there to see my teachers even if they are there. I've tried emailing, but it's to their interact accounts, which they only read at school.

EDIT: I don't live in the same state as my high school anymore.

tqc, if your roomie feels like this:

she has very little appetite
she had a stomach bug yesterday and threw up a lot
she feels nauseous and dizzy
she has pain on her right side, between her hip and her ribs, and she can feel it in her back right side too -- the pain has been constant from last night, but the intensity varies
she was running a fever around 101 yesterday but her temp is down to 98 now

would you think these are signs of an appendicitis or something else that she needs to go to the hospital for?

I have a "thing" with work. It stresses me out and I always get paranoid I won't get to work on time.

I just upgraded my account and because I love being poor, I bought the extra userpics.  Now I need to find good userpics!

What are your favorite userpics? (and may I take them, and if so who should I credit?)  I need at least one angry one, especially.

My first semester in university, and my results suck. :( No As at all, even a C, even though a C+. TQC, do you think I'll do better next semester if I tried really hard and become better at time management, now that I've quit my job?

What sucked for you today/this week?

Did you ever get yelled at when you were in elementary school? Will you tell us about it?

I remember I was sitting on my feet in music class because my friend was doing it and the teacher SCREAMED at me until I put my feet down. Like, just continued to yell at me until both feet were on the floor. It was mortifying (and 15 years later, I still remember it exactly)

Will you tell us about an embarrassing elementary school memory?

I was partners with my crush in gym (first grade). I had to puke, ran to the hallway, covered my mouth and literally puked on every space within a ten foot radius of myself. I had to go back into the gym (in front of my crush) and tell the coach that I puked urrrrvrywhere. Crush was never my gym partner again :(
