If you're a woman, who would you (or did you) want to have in the room with you while giving birth?*

Is there anyone who might want to be there that you wouldn't want there? How would you deal with that?

*If you are a special snowflake who needs to point out that this does not apply to you, feel free to make a snarky comment.

For those of you who want children, do you want to have a natural childbirth or use an epidural? I'm terrified of the pain associated with labor, but I'm also terrified of needles. I figure I'll just decide when I'm actually in labor.

For those of you with kids, what did you decide to do?

Do you own or rent the place you live in? What is the best thing about renting or owning (whichever applies to you)? The worst?

This is so stupid but I need your creativity.

I have a crazy aunt. Not in the "we feel bad for her" way but in the "she's a crazy fucking bitch" way.

She brought over trail mix for Christmas. Insisted that she made it...had a whole big elaborate story about it. Well, her sister found it premade at Target.
We're going to see her tomorrow.
Should we ask her for the recipe? Or just talk about how good it was and see what she says?

When was the last time someone lied to you and you caught them?

This question will probably confuse a lot of yall.

Is there a person that knows the real you? How you tick, and maybe the deep down part of you? Is that person your best friend or an online friend or what?

To try and clarify, I talk to this guy online (met him once through my friend.) that seems to know how I really feel about things on the inside: "You're shy but you wanna open up you want to experience more of life in general, and youre willing to, you just haven't had enough encouragement and opportunities." That statment is so true, I don't even think my best friend or my mom knows that's how I feel.

1. I think I hit a cat today. I was driving when this gray Persian bolted across the road. I tried to brake it but she/he was too close and "BAM"! Only there wasn't a "BAM". There was nothing. And behind me there wasn't a body. However, there wasn't a cat running down the street either. I checked under my car. Nothing. Not even a trace of a hit animal.

So, I ask you, what happened to the cat? (And, yes, I am still freaked out.)

2. In this age of MP3 players, do you still make mixed tapes and CDs? If so, what was on the last one you created?

Whats the last thing that freaked you out?
My mom just walked in the house a little bit ago - she had been on her way to work and lost control of the car in the snow, or well ice probably and seems she messed the car up. I'm a little freaked cause it could have been so much worse.
okay turns out it was just that she was sick, and had puked and stuff all in the car - her one co-working was with her even. blech - it always gives me an uncomfortable -i don't know what to do- feeling when my mom is sick.

Do you have any trouble falling asleep the first night or two you're in a new place?
Usually I don't, but I got back on-campus yesterday and for some reason I couldn't stay asleep the whole night.

If you ever have trouble falling asleep for whatever reason, do you toss and turn? If so, do you just kind of shuffle back and forth in different positions or do you find yourself completely rolling over into different positions.
I never fall right to sleep, and I actually end up rolling over completely atleast once, usually twice.

I have five housemates, one of which I've deemed Fuckface in my own head. I'm pretty sure Fuckface is coming back today, but I'm not sure. Will Fuckface be back in the house today? If so, how bitchy will she be? And how much will she complain actually clean when I ask her to help clean?

What is your favorite animal sound? 
I love hearing pigeons! I can hear one cooing right now! *swoon*

I have the absolute worst back pain in my life due to pregnancy....the other night it woke me up and caused me to hallucinate.
When was the last time you hallucinated? What happened? 

I just kept hearing this droning sound over and over, quiet to loud, in the same intervals and I thought it was the end of the world. Good times.

Let's play our favorite TQC game- Validate Me

You have to take prerequisite courses in order to apply for an MA/MS degree in Speech Pathology. You have $12K in loans from undergrad in a different field and will probably incur massive loans in grad school, given the general lack of funding for your field. You can either:

1) Go to a university near your parents' house to take these prereqs, live with them, pay $3k for tuition and fees per full-time trimester (you'll have to have 3 full-time trimesters: Winter 2009, Fall 2009, and Winter 2010). You may not have much of a social life.

2) Go to a university in the city and incur a minimum of $50k in debt between tuition, fees, and living expenses. You'd be living with friends.

What would you do?

My best friend's giving me a really hard time over picking 1, basically saying that I should have moved to the city for my classes and "that's why people work." Am I missing something?

Poll #1328633 Which one?

Which scenario would you choose?


Drop me a line

If somebody leaves a message for you via voicemail, text message, email, post-it note, carrier pigeon, etc. -- how do you prefer to return their message? Will you use the same method (e.g. voicemail --> call back, email --> email, spy vs spy --> anthrax envelope)? Why or why not?

TQC, I hate to ask Facebook questions here, but Facebook support is so unhelpful, and Google doesn't yield any results either.  When someone posts a video on my wall, it shows up on my news feed but not my wall, and they get an error message.  Loads of unanswered questions on the Facebook Help page show that this is happening to a lot of people, and I have no idea how to change it.  Help?

I have a stupid question because I'm socially retarded and awkward.

I met this guy yesterday.  Turns out we have the same make, model and year of car.  He asked if he could sit in my car to compare it to his, so we sat in my car.  He wanted to know what my speaker system sounded like compared to his speaker system and asked if her could hook up his ipod to check them out.  When I told him I was planning on selling the car in like 3 months or so, he told me that he really wanted to buy it. Then he asked if I wanted to check out his car and since he was kind of cute and funny, I said sure.  So, we went to his car and drove around for awhile and talked and laughed.  Anyhow, to make a long story short, we exchanged phone numbers, on the premise, I think, that I'm to call him when I decide to sell the car. 

So, TQC, is he interested in ME or my car?

Beauty Products

What are your 5 beauty products (skincare, hair, make-up, etc...) that you cannot live without?

I spent all last night searching some new beauty products and their reviews on Sephora, YouTube, and Google. These are some new products I've been convinced to go out and try:
+ Talika Lipocils (eyelash conditioner/thicken/lengthen)
+ Philosophy "Purity" Facial Cleanser
+ Jonathan Antin "Dirt" Texturizing Paste
+ Mac Fluidline in "Blacktrack"
+ Mac Mineraize Skinfinish Duo

If you couldn't tell, it's been a while since I've updated my beauty regimen! Anyone have input on any of the products listed or recommend some of your own? xoxo.

Edit: I realize we all need shampoo/conditioner, toothpaste, deodorant, moisturizer, etc to stay hygienic lol... I'm seeking answers that specify certain beauty brands/products that are a miracle worker for you!

1. I need to do a 6 week summer Arabic intensive for my own benefit, as I think it would be good to get more practice at the high intermediate level before I start advanced translation. Should I:

Be studious and go to an Arab nation, Morocco, Jordan, etc.
Be somewhat lazy in my studiousness and go to Israel.
Be really lazy and take the intensive here at my own university.
Be extremely lazy and go to my state of residency where I'd pay nearly nothing for it.

Do you avoid any particular brands because of their names or any other incident in your life?

I dislike shopping at Samuel and Kevin's because the names are shared with boys that I've liked, and neither relationship worked out well.

A few questions, if you please

Would you rather go back in time 1000 years and live out the rest of your life, or got forward 1000 years and live out the rest of your life?

Imagine you are on a deserted island, with nary a coconut or grub to be seen. The only other things of note on the island are a newly dead body and another  (living) person, who you do not know. After watching for some time, you realize that this other person has food and will NOT share it with you. Do you a) kill this person and take his food (this is the only way you can get his food), or b) eat the already dead person? Or heck, c) starve to death

Would you rather live in a colony in space, or under a dome at the bottom of the sea (on Earth)?

So we found this chair that we really love at Rooms to Go. It is a great deal and BONUS! It is a sleeper sofa too.

Now the downside is that it only comes in red. Our sofa is green. You can see it here. Our walls are this green. The chair wouldn't go right up on a wall that color, but it would be about 4 feet away from it. The sofa is in the red that is on the throw pillows on the sofa, so there is that tie-in. It is sort of this color.

Would it be too Christmas-y to have a red chair?


How easy do you think it would be to slip cover a chair? It's technically a "chair and a half". That is the part that worries me about finding a slip cover.

I have the 3 Ginger Snaps movies in my possession now via Netflix, what order should I watch them in?

The third movie, Ginger Snaps Back: The Beginning, is a prequel that takes place before part 1, yet it was made last, so I would assume the writers knew the audience would most likely know what happens in parts 1 & 2 first, yet since I haven't seen any of them yet would it be better to watch the last movie first?

Then we have the descriptions for the movies, part 1 says "...she's bitten by a werewolf and quickly develops several new traits..." Part 3 says: "...Ginger is bitten and starts slowly changing..." Huh?

If there is a book/movie whose copyright hasn't expired, but it's available to check out at the library, why is it so bad to read it/watch it "illegally" online? You could theoretically check it out from the library instead, and if the library has already paid for the rights then what's the difference if only one person checks it out or 50 people check it out?

How does accessing the material online vs. at the library affect the people who hold the copyright? I'm actually curious, I'm not trying to start a debate. Setting "ethics" aside and thinking purely monetarily.

We've done the '95 and '05 Pride and Prejudice, Sense and Sensibility, the '49 Little Women, and potentially others that I'm forgetting.

So, TQC, if you go out for dinner, who pays? who should pay?

Is it romantic or sexist if the guys pays? Is it expected?
Should you split it? Do you only pay for what you ordered?
Should the girl pay?
Does it make a different who asks who out?

My boyfriend and I are poor, jobless students and we rarely go out for meals. He's bought me lunch and coffee a few times but the budget has never stretched to a meal, so i just pay for myself. I'd love it if he'd take me out for dinner every now and again, but i'm not sure if i'd expect him, or want him to pay all the time. He's joked before about me paying for the meal once or twice when i had a job but he didn't but tbh, i'm a bit of a romantic and like old fashioned values. I think guys should open doors for girls and stuff but that's just me :]]] my boyfriend is more realistic than romantic though.

(Personally, I would call slugs "slimings" and snails "housed slimings". )

rye flour

I've tried to make rye bread in my Breadman Pro bread machine, but it doesn't make a very good loaf. Now I have 2 pounds of rye flour and I can't think of what else I could do with it. Is there anything else that uses rye flour besides rye bread? Or do you have a a good rye bread recipe for bread machines?

As I was getting ready to leave this morning (gotta love Saturday classes), my electric razor died as I was half-way done shaving my face. I had to go to 7-11 to pick up a disposable razor and was late to class as a result. What's the last thing that failed you at an inopportune time?

When I come home, I usually like to empty the trash, change kitty litter, etc., while the microwave is heating up my dinner. You have exactly five minutes to be productive. What will you do?

Another question: Do any features run in your family?

So the other day my dad used the expression "that was a bear" when he was talking about how shitty something was or that it sucked or something. I turn around and started looking around for a bear. Have you ever heard someone say that before?

How was your day?

I'm really craving some cookies or candies or something, buuuuuut there is nearly two feet of snow outside, and would require a 10 minute walk there and back.

Is it worth it to walk all the way there and back? If it is, what should I buy?
