Should you buy a house if you have no money for a down payment?

*I'm watching a show about people buying their first house and this girl has no money to put down and like $2k in savings...WHY ARE THEY LETTING HER BUY A HOUSE?!

CLUB!

Have you ever bought one of those "THE CLUB" canned cocktails?

What flavour?

Did you enjoy it?

I got the Long Island Iced Tea Flavour tonight cos I saw it in a gas station. So far it is very much worth the $2.25

Does your mom know about your myspace/facebook/other potentially embarrassing social networking site?

What was her reaction when she found out?

What would her reaction be if she could see it?

Soon I'm going to be moving out into my first apartment...

The issues are:
- I have no credit
- I have no job (trying to get one, but I do have a large amount of money to hold me over in my bank account)
- the two roommates I plan to move with... one has bad credit, and the other has no credit history (college grads, but I trust them with making rent)

Since it would be difficult for us kids to get a decent place, my mom gave me the idea for her to co-sign or something with me, since she has good credit and more money in her bank, etc. The only thing is she lives in a different state.

I want to start calling apartments because we plan to get in by April 1, but just... I don't have any idea how I approach the landlords I want to contact. What do I say to them? How much do I say?

I even asked if I should give the numbers for my mom to call, but she insists I do it myself. I just don't want the landlord or w/e to feel suspicious of me because of it. How do I approach this situation?

Any advice would be appreciated!

Ok, I'm going to try to ask good questions here on TQC and not ones that actually have to do with my personal life, but i'm going to ask this question.............. OK, so I sent my Xbox to the repair center to get fixed, because my Xbox has been ruining certain games. It could be coincidence that i've had 7 Maddens and 1 GTA 4 that are defective, but one frustrated night i called and decided to charge $105 to my credit card to get it fixed. They told me to include with my Xbox a paper that has a list of the problems so they know what to fix. I'd heard that people who get the red ring of death usually just get refurbished Xboxs back and it's not even theirs.

So my list.....
1. My xbox ruins my newer games but plays my old ones fine
2. It starts up really slow
3. i get a "blah blah blah" error
4. I had a really bad experience with your customer service people and I was told to include on the list that I am to recieve a refurbished Xbox with an HDMI port for my hard time.

Now i know what you're thinking... No this didn't really happen... Actually i had a horrible time getting it figured out. I had to track down a guy who's name was on my Xbox and i didn't have his info.. It was truly a horrible experience. But since i'm getting an HD tv soon ( i hope) i decided to lie and hope it works out... I'm sorry that I look really dishonest, i say lie to companies not people.... But my question is... What do you think will happen? Will i get my old one back or will they do what my list says? If i was being honest i would have no way of proving it.. It's worth a try.. They wasted my time, i might as well waste their money.

I have 13 month old nephew and I've been looking everywhere for cute clothing for him. But all I can find are outfits that make him look like a 20 something frat boy, an American tourist or worse a used car salesman.

However, when I look for little girl's clothing, I find the most adorable clothing. Outfits that make little girls look like little girls.

Why isn't there clothing that make little boys look like adorable little boys? Am I looking at the wrong spots? Do you know of any places where I can find cute little boy clothing?

I don't want my nephew to look like his first words will be "beer bong".

What does tl;dr mean? lol, i'm just joking.. i'm learning guys sorry.

Ok, When you repair an xbox you need to put a list of what's wrong with it. In my list i said that the person on the phone told me to include on my list that I am to recieve a refurbished Xbox with HDMI compatabilities instead of getting my old Xbox back. This isn't true. I am lying to the company, but if i was telling the truth i'd have no way of proving it. So do you think that I will just get my old Xbox back with a "nice try" note back on it, or do you think the repair people will just do what it says? Is it likely I get lucky here?

I think it's time for the penis poll again!

For those who like the penis:

How long is your SO's erect penis?

Less than 3"
1(0.8%)
4-5 inches
7(5.3%)
5-6 inches
32(24.4%)
6-7 inches
42(32.1%)
7-8 inches
28(21.4%)
8-9 inches
13(9.9%)
9-10 inches
3(2.3%)
More than 10"
5(3.8%)



If you are not dating anyone, use the last guy you dated. If you have more than 1 man, use the one you have better sex with. If you are a dude, you can just put your own length in there.

TQC, because Spirit Airlines is the shittiest most horrific fucking airline ever, I have been stuck in the airport in Orlando since 10pm, and won't be leaving until 7am. I can't get my connecting tickets (ON ANOTHER AIRLINE) until the booth opens at 4:30, and I'm about to go crazy from boredom. My fiance is asleep on the floor and does not want to have airport sex. How the fuck do I entertain myself????

Additionally, can I be expecting lunch on my American Airlines flight from Miami to Panama, which leaves at noon-ish and gets in at 3-ish? Because I'm not going to lie, airline food makes my day.

Ok, I wish  had a picture, but sometimes, probably once a month or less, I get a bright red spot on the outline of my lip, like where one would would put lipliner on. Is it a cold sore? I googled 'cold sore' and it looks NOTHING like any of this:



So here's how it usually starts forming:
The rim of my lips will start to itch. I start scratching it and just KNOW that it's gonna be the usual BRIGHT, red spot, no bigger than 2mm. That's when I check myself out in the mirror and see it! Again, it looks nothing like the pics of 'cold sores' on google images. It's just red, no white spot inside, no puss, no popping, NADA. So this red lip spot of mine will go away in like 15-20 minutes, more or less.

I've googled the sheeit out of this, and I STILL don't know wtf it is! Could it be a dry, irritated, lip patch from chaffing? Oral herpes (I still have my v-card!)? WTF MAN! If anyone could help me out, it would mean an effing lot. Thanks a lot in advance!

I'm restless, so here are some questions

1. It's almost 4am, and I should definitely be asleep but I'm having a mindblock. I watched a movie not too long ago where there was a girl who kept buying copies of Jane Eyre because she was looking for a specific copy that had a note from her dad in it. I can't remember what movie it was, and the only thing that comes to mind is Definitely, Maybe. Is that movie I'm thinking of? This is the biggest reason I'm not asleep yet. I don't even know why I thought of it. It was Definitely, Maybe. I can sleep soundly now.

2. I'm going food shopping tomorrow for when I go back to school on Friday. I live in a townhouse with five other girls and we have a full kitchen. I'm trying to get foods that I can cook in the house as opposed to ordering out everytime I don't feel like heading to the dining hall. What [relatively cheap] foods should I get that I can make a not-too-unhealthy dinner out of? I'm already planning on getting portabello mushrooms if I can so I can make portabello burgers.

3. What are you doing tomorrow?
4. What is your favorite breakfast food?

5. Also speaking of food, I'm probably gonna have a whole day in the townhouse to myself meaning I'll have no company for lunch or dinner, and I don't think the dining hall or campus c-store will be open anyway. There is a small convenience store that I could probably get something food-like at around the block, a Dunkin Donuts a short walk away where I can get the bagel I've been craving, and there's a Subway about twice as far as the DD where I can get an actual sandwich. What should I do?

1. My friend says there no such thing as a cute red headed guy. (However, with girls, she says there are loads.) Anyway, I claim balderdash and poppycock on this.

Do you agree with her or are there cute red headed guys out there? If so, would you post a pic of them?

2. What's your favorite old fashion word? Do you ever look for a way to slip into a conversation now and again?

3. In this scenario, Lucifer exists. You get to ask him one question. What is it?

4. You can steal anyone object in the world at your desire. The catch is, once you have it, you cannot use for what it was originally intended to be used as. (For example, if you steal all the money in a bank, you can't use the money to buy stuff. You have to use it for something else. You steal shoes, you can't use them to walk around in. Etc. )

So, what would you steal and what would you use it for?

What would you do?

I am registered to take two classes at the community college starting next week and I haven't paid for them yet. The cost for just tuition and fees is something like $770. Books and parking permit would obviously add more to the total.

This morning I had a dentist appointment where I learned that I need $2k in dental work (replace two crowns and one filling).

I can't afford to do both. I mean, I could put them both on my credit card, but I don't want to do that. I am still taking general classes (although these particular ones would be helpful for my current job). I was really looking forward to starting school and considered just postponing the dental work. But the problem with that is that it could get worse if I wait and I'd end up paying even more.

Awhile back my dad gave me an old Chinese puzzle-ball ivory* chess set. The set is beautiful, no question about it, but the case is falling to pieces. (If you've never seen one, the case is supposed to look like this - board on the outside, pieces stored inside.) The velvet is peeling out, the elastic hasn't been useful in what looks like decades, and I can't even close the case or all the pieces will fall out on top of each other and be crushed. Consequently it is lying open on my closet floor and getting my sweaters out without stepping on it requires poses only a ballerina should perform.


OK. So. Do you clever people have any ideas about what I could do to store the poor pieces instead? The house does not have cat-proof shelves.

Sometimes there's one with big blue eyes, cute as a bunny, with hair down to here, and plenty of money. And just when you think she's that one in the world, your heart gets stolen by some mousey little girl.

Sometimes you really dig a girl the moment you kiss her, and then you get distracted by her older sister. When in walks her father and takes you a line, and says, "You better go home, son, and make up your mind".

1. Did you ever have to make up your mind -- pick up on one and leave the other behind? It's not often easy and not often kind. Did you ever have to make up your mind?

2. Did you ever have to finally decide -- say yes to one and let the other one ride? There's so many changes and tears you must hide. Did you ever have to finally decide?

Here's A Question

Yesterday I posted an LJ post into the wrong community. It was a total accident which I DELETED within two minutes. Yet people felt the need to comment RUDELY on my post in those two minutes. I knew I messed up and took it down. There should have been no muss, not fuss.

So my question is this: do you stalk this LJ community? I was surprised that within TWO minutes I got 15 replies to my post. Oh. My. God. I wish I had the time and the gonads to be that rude to something that was clearly a mistake.

So, do you stalk this thing? Why? Do you ever leave comments that are a little less than nice? Why?

Hello TQC!

This February I am going away to college for the first time ever (PUMPUMPUM!). I feel I am prepared for most things, except for security. The rooms are all single occupancy but I still don't feel sure about leaving all my things - especially my laptop - in my room protected by one locked door.

How do you college kids keep your things safe? Any advice for me?

Also, do you think I'm mental when I say that I am 'prepared for most things'? What do people usually forget to do / account for? Because I'm pretty sure I'll get there and realise I've forgotten to bring pants or something.

Calls from 0?

I got an iPhone recently, and over the last week I've been getting a lot of calls from "0". It rings for a few seconds, then it just says it's a missed call from "0". If I pick up, I just hear silence. Who's "0"? Is there a way I can stop it from calling me?

ETA; Can I get some non-snarky answers please?
threadless. i want to be inside you!

What little things were you jealous of of your friends growing up?

Was there anyone whose name you wish you had?

I was jealous of my friend Lily's name, my friend Cheryl's piano talent, and how tiny my friend Rachel was so she would look so cute in any outfit.

pets, again.

1. Do you think certain dog breeds have a certain smell?

i'm convinced they do. Dachshunds, for example, have a very specific smell. My mom's and my brother's weiner dogs smell the same but different from our different breed(ed) dogs.

2. What do you do online when you're bored and LJ fails you? LIke funny blogs, websites, etc.

3. Do you like Oprah? Why or why not?

A couple of friends and I want to go see snow somewhere. We live in Phoenix, AZ and only want to drive a couple of hours North to do so. How would I go about finding where has snow on the ground? I've looked up the weather forecast but it only shows me the temperature. Can you help?

Who was the last person you ran into while being out and about?

If you had a messy room growing up, do you still have a messy room now? Or have you grown out of that?

Who or what is currently annoying you?

My 16 year old brother. He basically dropped out of high school and can't keep a job longer than 2 weeks, my parents support him for everything (although it's not happening for much longer), pay for his cellphone bill, give him money to take his girlfriend out and buy her Christmas presents. Today he wanted money for his cellphone and they couldn't give it to him. He FLIPPED out claiming this is why he's moving out, he doesn't get anything he wants, my parents never keep their word blah blah. He gets everything he wants, doesn't have a job, doesn't go to school and basically does whatever he wants...and on the off chance my parents don't give him money, his life is the worst life possible.

Then he starts getting on me for not lending him money when I have so much saved. I lend him money constantly and never get paid back so I stopped. He thinks because I have money put away it's all fine if I decide to take some out to give to him? Even though I don't even take money out of that account for myself?

This is probably tl;dr. I am just angry. WHY ARE YOU ANGRY OR ANNOYED?

Where do you see yourself in ten years? Hopefully married and with a stable job. I also hope we have a house, but living in an apartment would be fine too.  I want kids, but I think I'd wait a little while.  A few animals would be nice to start off with.

Have you ever had sex while on drugs? Have you ever done drugs while having sex? Lemme tell you TQC, last night I was riding my man reverse cowboy while smoking crack and it was amaaaaaayzing. He came, I came, there was cum all over the room! I mean, I've gotten cum in my hair before but this time there was cum in the light fixtures. When I tried to turn on the lights they barely glowed they were so covered in cum and then the cum started burning and it smelled really bad. TQC -- have you ever burned cum? Would you ever want to try burning cum? Do you think the smell of the burning cum made my tits look perkier?

TQC, what the hell? I wrote an essay and it wouldn't print. So I saved it and rebooted my computer. The printer is working now, but I can't open my essay! It says the file name cannot be found, even though I'm looking at the file and when I click on it it just errors and I hate my life now. Why does my computer hate me?

In the past I've had friends with babies. Some of them breastfed (modestly) in public and others refused.
If you've had a baby did you or your partner breastfeed? In public as well as private? 
What are you thoughts on (public) breastfeeding? 

I personally think people who make a big deal out of it (public feedings) need more things to occupy their time and are petty.

Have you had a chance to see someone's very large or small penis or boobs? How does this effect your sexual relationships?

My best friend's first sexual bf had a large penis (~9 in.) and now she has a skewed view of how big penises should be, thinking anythig under 7 inches is tiny.

Have you ever gone to the movies by yourself? Were you comfortable or self-conscious?


I want to go see Bride Wars because I'm a sucker and I want to see it and I'll be alone all day tomorrow, but I feel like people will stare at me like "LOSER, don't you have any FRIENDS to go to the movies with?" =\ lol



Alternately, does anyone in the Jacksonville area want to see a movie with me tomorrow? lol

Real question time, but thanks go to alpacacock for the last one. ;)

My company seems to have eliminated giving out gift cards. Since I won a monthly drawing, I'm entitled to get a reward. So, what's something I can ask for that's $20 or less and work-appropriate (no hookers and blow, guys)? I'm seriously stumped here.

Wallpapers!

Hi TQC!
I'm looking for a new wallpaper for my computer. I tried googling images and clicking "save as desktop background" (I have a PC), but they came out really pixelated - even when I specifically searched for larger sizes.
I'm not too picky - anything pretty or Escher-y is generally preferable.
My screen resolution is 1280x800 pixels.

Do you know where I can find good-quality images for free that won't turn out like crap? Thanks!

You know how there are those call boxes at apartment complexes, you dial in the people you're going to visit and they buzz you in? Okay... WHAT BUTTON DO I PUSH ON MY PHONE WHEN PEOPLE CALL TO BE BUZZED IN?
My complex management staff forgot that little detail when they programmed my number in and now they're closed.

How do you take apart a watch? I have a few broken watches I want to take apart. It doesn't matter if I damage it because they are already broken but I don't want to just smash it because I am going to use the parts inside for jewelry. I figured there would be a screw or something but there's not and I have so far been unsuccessful in just prying it open.

Do you have any old junk watches or clocks that are broken and you want to give them to me so I can use the parts without having to buy parts on eBay?

Here's a question that's been bothering me for a while.

Say you're in your own house, and you're naked - I donno what you're doing, it doesn't really matter. Let's say you're doing the Thriller dance.

So, naked Thriller dance in your living room, and the blinds are open. Someone walks past and sees you. Can you get in trouble?

Edit: I should probably explain - I saw on TV that some guy was arrested for being naked in his house where this teenage girl could see him. It was obvious he was doing it on purpose, but it got me wondering.

help me TQC D:

About 4 months ago, I thought that I was going to want to watch Mad Men on my computer, so I tried downloading it from iTunes. Turns out, it was taking way too long to download and I had no patience so I canceled all of the downloads. I thought that was the end of it!

Today, I was downloading an album that only had five songs on it when I saw that there were 12 downloads waiting. Mad Men has come back to haunt me! And no matter how many times I try to delete, they all keep coming back to haunt me.

I don't want this - TQC how in the hell do I get rid of it?

And if you can't help me - Gatorade or Powerade?

My next door neighbor has pneumonia apparently. Her daughter told my son at school today. I just moved here six months ago and I've had maybe a handful of conversations with her. Nice and pleasant ones. She's a single mom, so I'm not sure she has too many people helping her out. I don't know.

Would it be weird if I went over there tomorrow afternoon and offered to get her anything she might need?

I feel bad for her, but I'm pretty shy, too.

I think it's hilarious.  I'd love for some of those ads to come out in Texas.  The lulz would be EPIC.

How should i propose to my sister that she needs therapy? Should i even bother?

NOTE: We are not close, and she does not exhibit normal human emotional responses. So a crying screaming fit will probably occur followed by some form of self-destructive behavior.
Like most really messed-up people she is of course vehemently against therapy/psychiatric drugs and believes that all forms of mental illness can be cured with the right combination of diet and LSD or pot.
