Does anyone else find the ball dropping to be ridiculously anti-climactic? Or is it just because I turned the TV on at 11:59:25? The first time I watched it, I was surprised that they didn't drop it and let it shatter.  I mean, it slowly eases down a pole...how unexciting is that?

So, my good friend's folks are about to pick up a beautiful Great Pyrenees puppy.
However, they already have a feisty little 3 yr old miniature dachshund. She is never walked. Is punished by hits. Has been tossed across a room by an angry relative (no legal action was taken). Is terribly undersocialized. Left alone by herself for hours on end when my friend has to work. The list goes on.

They say the dog is free and want it for protection. They've also been told Pyrenees hardly shed and are very easy to train and discipline lol Clearly these people don't know what they're getting into and are probably going to have a fearful, aggressive young adult in a year.
My friend and I are really pissed about this. Her parents are the know-it-all type and aren't ones to listen to actual reasons as to why having a large, time-consuming, working breed in their already busy home is a bad idea. The breed has been her mom's dream ever since she was a child and her fantasies about it are overshadowing the facts.

What would you do?

Also, LOL 2 am post.

Happy New Year Neighbour

So its 6:30am new years day, I woke up half an hour ago to a huge fight out the front of my house.

I didn't do anything for a while, but after I heard the sound of a ruffle I called the cops. That was about 10 minutes ago.

The fighting seems to have lessened now.


My question are:

1) Why after calling my local police station did they make me call 000 (the eqivilent of 911)? It is not really an emergency?

2) Why do I feel guilty?

3) What is/was your first act of the New Year?

4) Why are the cops not here yet?

Did anyone drunk dial you last night?

My little brother called me and left a 5 minute voicemail, most of it of him talking to his friends saying, "I'M CALLING MY SISTER IN KANSAS! YEAH! WOOO! KANSAS! SHE ISN'T ANSWERING THE PHONE! I'M GOING TO LEAVE A VOICEMAIL!" and then he realized he was already ON voicemail, so he says, "OH, HI, HAPPY NEW YEAR EVEN THOUGH IT'S NOT MIDNIGHT IN KANSAS! YAAAAAAAY!" and then he hung up.

Also, my mom drunk dialed me. My mom. WTF?

What irritated you last night? 

My grandma not seeing the ball drop and whining about it for ten minutes after we decided to go to bed. She wouldn't shut up either. The extra bedroom (where I slept) is right next to hers, so I had to hear it. Then she was mumbling to herself, but I heard that too.

What TV shows did you start watching a few years in?

Angel (Season five, the last), NCIS (season six, the current season), Numb3rs (season five), iCarly (beginning of season two), Gilmore Girls (season four), Friends (season seven), The Office (season three), Big Bang Theory (season two) and probably a few others.

Has anybody else noticed that faith in religion is (for some people) boiled down to a person wishing for a certain thing to happen, and if that thing comes to pass then their belief in their respective religion is affirmed?

And, if you have noticed this, is that a weak base to place ones faith on? That is to reduce spirituality to a wishing frenzy, rather than being a sanctuary for the heart?

Party Cleaning

Say you have a party with 12 of your closest friends. Everybody is drinking and there was food, which is all gone now. People start to mention going home around 2 am, after a night of drinking, including yourself who is visibly drunk.

Do you clean up the party the same night, at 2 am? Or do you wait until the next morning to clean up the glasses and plates that were used?

what is the cutest/sweetest little thing a(n ex)bf or gf has done for you on a regular basis?



i had an ex who worked early every day. if i didn't have an early class, he'd reset his alarm and let his dog get in bed with me when he left. if i had an early class, he'd get up and get ready, leave me sleeping, and start my car for me. it was awesome because he'd wake me up at the last minute so i could roll out of bed and get into my warm car.

TRAVELOCITY

I am a seasoned international traveller.
I've always had tickets. Even if I had to print them from my email acct.
I'm going on a trip in 2 weeks that I booked on Travelocity.
But I don't have anything that looks like a "ticket".
Do I just swipe my passport at the airport?
Will the airline have my reservation?
AM I SCREWED????

Blah de blah

I have two groups of acquaintances: "work friends" and "outside of work friends". These groups are each composed of very different people that mean very different things to me. I've been friends with my "outside" friends for about three years and we all lived together in a dorm at one point. My work friends, however, sometimes have difficulty understanding that I have friends outside of work.

I want to have a birthday party, which falls during a period of required work travel. I requested not to travel during that time and the request should be honored, but almost all of my co-workers will be out traveling, so they would not be able to attend the party regardless. That said, I want the party to be exclusively for my "outside" friends.

My apartment is also pretty small so it would be impossible to have a party on a different date with both groups of friends. And I don't want to have two separate parties.

Should I make my party a Facebook event, or would that make my co-workers sour? My "outside" group always organizes their parties exclusively on Facebook, and while I originally wanted to avoid my co-workers knowing I was having this party at all it would be so much easier for me to just organize it over Facebook than trying to make sure I have all their correct e-mail addresses, etc.

do orgasms sometimes feel like you have to pee? mine usually don't. but i remember when i first had sex (sorry - the v-card post inspired me) i kept feeling like i had to pee while the guy was in me. and i had to try really hard to hold it in. but when he pulled out, i didn't feel like i had to pee at all. i heard sometimes certain ejaculatory orgasms feel this way.

is that sensation likely due to an oncoming orgasm or a dick pressing on your bladder or something? if it was an orgasm, would you really be able to hold that in?

Have any of you gone out of state (or at least several hours' drive away from home) for undergrad and also attended a local university by transferring schools? It doesn't matter which order you did it in - which situation do you think gave you the better experience overall? What do you feel you missed out on in each situation?

I chose to go out of state and I've graduated now so it's not a big deal, but I sometimes find myself wishing I had just stayed home and gone to the local university. That way I would have been able to have my car so that I could work more and save up more money instead of trying to play catch-up after graduating. And my parents would have always been there in case I needed anything.

Lateness

Are you one of those people who are late, or one of those who get annoyed when people are late for no valid reason? Or are you so calm you let none of this annoy you?

How late is TOO LATE?
- for example, waiting on a date, or your friend to have coffee with him/her

I just hate when people are even just a bit, even a second late, if nothing unexpected happened on the way to delay them. It makes it seem like they didn't care that much to come on time. I like to show up at least a few minutes early(up to 20 minutes, depends what is the case, if it is an exam, ect). So I don't have to hurry and worry about being late/keeping someone else waiting.

Food

Oh, the post below reminded me of something...

1. Do you sometimes crave strange foods that you don't ususally like, or that you actually hate? For example, I hate, hate melon, but once every year I get a strange craving for it.

2. Is there some food that you like, but you can't eat much of it before you start really hating it or feeling sick?
Happens to me with chestnuts. I can only eat like one or two.

3. In reverse question...
Do you at random times hate some foods you usually like? When?

4. Anyone ever made you try something (or you made yoursels) that you thought you'd hate, but you actually liked it?

Dear TQC,
I am moving across the country, from Pennsylvania to Washington, and will be staying with a relative. Thus, I don't need to take a whole lot of my stuff with me. I am thinking about renting a cargo trailer and hitching it to my Vue.

I'm also looking at GPS units (I'll be sure to have actual maps, too), but have only used a Garmin nuvi and it took me all over the place. It wasn't mine, so perhaps I just had it on the wrong setting. If you have a GPS, I'd appreciate any input you may be willing to provide because I'm about to gouge my eyes out from reading Amazon reviews.

Adopt a Platoon?

Has anyone ever written letters to troops serving in Iraq through Adopt a Platoon? I want to make sure they're reputable and not some kind of scam. If you've written through another agency, what is it? Did you like it?

Do you have a penpal? Have you ever had one? What happened to him/her? Care to share your stories?
Do you think a soldier serving in Iraq would care to hear about the inauguration festivities in DC, or would they not want to because Obama is a LIBRUL TERRORIST-LOVER OMG?

ETA: I guess a more noncontentious, clearer way of phrasing that question would be: would it considered too political to write about the inauguration parties/parades/etc? I live in DC, and I was trying to think of things that I would write about that someone overseas would be interested in hearing. But this election was definitely polarizing, and I didn't know if that kind of thing might be considered too political.

Look, Ma, no face

After watching this video, I was suddenly aware that I was pretty shallow because having a face is kind of a, well, KEY feature on what I like on a woman, and I don't think I have the fortitude to stay with a person without a face. My bad. atelan said that she could live with such a thing if it happened to his face, and it's much better than if the guy became morbidly obese. I disagreed. I felt that I would rather date a morbidly obese person rather than a faceless person. Where do you fall?

Who would you rather date?

When you are playing video games, do you play to win, or do you screw around a lot (e.g., seeing how far you can get in Half-Life 2 using only the gravity gun)?

You must drop everything and go on a vacation right now. No buts. Where would you go?

i'm kind of a mess

So, last night, I went to a party and left a bag full of make-up, contact lens supplies, birth control and panties. The make-up alone is probably over $200, so I need this bag back.

However, this party was about 45 minutes from my home. I am going to Florida in two days and would really like to have these supplies. I talked to the girl who lives at the house and she says she has the bag and everything is accounted for.

What should I do?!

a. Drive a car there (45 minutes each way) and pick up my stuff. $5-8 in tolls + gas.
b. Take the train there (about an hour each way). $16.
c. Just re-buy everything in the bag and write it off as a loss, but make my life easier.
d. Something else?!
