Where does the insult involving the insulter "playing a small violin" come from?

EDIT: What is its ORIGIN? I'm not asking what it means.

You know, where a spoiled brat might be complaining about something petty, and you'd say "look at me, I'm playing a tiny violin for your troubles," and they would play a fake "air violin" (like air guitar).

Is there some original film where a small violin was used to portray a tragic situation?

I don't know what to do. My baby turtles are very sick. Their eyes are swollen and they won't eat.

I need a vet and I cannot afford one. Nobody is lending me money. I feel so horrible, I don't know who else to call. I can't find any adoption place that will take them.

Please, if you know how to help, please respond. I don't want them to die.

I live in Encino California 91316 and my email is zuzalok@yahoo.com

ETA - I finally got through to someone! After calling a bunch of vets and societies, I contacted a man named Michael @ The California Turtle & Tortoise Society. I will bring my turtles over to them today, as soon as possible.

None of the vets wanted to negotiate a payment plan, and none wanted me to surrender them. This was the only society that picked up the phone.

I really hope they can take care of them and treat them. I hope they get better.

Compensation

I asked a friend to drive my gf and me to the airport and told him I would pay him. We have to be at the airport at 4 AM and it's 45 mins to an hr away depending on traffic. So he has to wake up super early, drive us there and back, and the worst part is, he gets home about an hour before he has to go to work. So he can't exactly go back home and to sleep, but he can't exactly go to work either.

What would you pay him if it was you in this situation? Thanks :D

What are some wicked sweet birthday ideas I should consider?

I'm willing to travel. Driving distance would be nice(~1,300 from Texas). Keep in mind that I'm not absolutely ROLLING in cash though. It'd most likely be just me, or me and another person. I'd like to go mid-May, so I'll still be 20 at the time of the trip.

I heard about Disneylands's offer to let people in for free on their birthday..which lead me to think "HOLY CRAP. I'VE NEVER BEEN TO DISNEY. I SHOULD DO THIS FOR MY 21ST". I'm considering going for full price since that offer is only valid on your actual date of birth. I then went to check out the Six Flags park in LA. Apparently they have a lot of the same rollercoasters I have access to here in Texas. Bummer. Theres always Knotts but meehh. I'm not even that fond of California, so it isn't the only option by any means. I'm not hellbent on a theme park either. ETA: No Florida.

If you're vegan/vegetarian, how long have you been vegan/vegetarian?
Why did you decide to become vegan/vegetarian and how long did it take you? Did you do it all at once or gradually?

I'm considering it, but i'm scared it may be too hard or some things may be too expensive (most things in miami are terribly expensive) and i'm not the greatest cook at times. Any advice? lol.


If none of this applies to you, would you try to not eat meat or any dair products or eggs for a week? If not, why not? If so, do you think you can do it for a month? or 6 months? or a year?

I'm taking an American Government class because I was considering double majoring in Political Science. As interesting as the class can be, I've decided I don't want to double major in that anymore (now I'm thinking Anthropology). I've already paid for the class (well, my scholarship did), but I can still drop it without penalty. Should I just drop the class so I can focus more on my other classes (right now, this is the class I have to work hardest in, there is a LOT of reading) ? Or should I just man up, do the readings, and take the class since my scholarship money went towards it (note: this also requires buying the other text book I haven't gotten around to purchasing yet)?

Greetings, TQC!

I really want to make chicken stir-fry tonight for dinner, but I have one tiny problem: I didn't take any chicken out last night to defrost! Google/Womenshealth.com/Alton Brown tells me that letting it sit in a bowl with cold water running over it will defrost it enough to cut, etc. in about 30 minutes. I don't want to use the microwave, because ours turns chicken into rubber.

Have you ever tried this method? Did it work out alright without anyone getting food poisoning?

I don't need to start cutting veggies or actually cooking anything until about 4pm (3 hours from now), so I'd likely end up defrosting it via the water method and then letting it chill in the fridge until I need it. It'll only be about 2-3 large chicken breasts (fully frozen as of right now), if that makes a difference.

And, what kind of veggies should I use? I'm thinking onions, carrots, red peppers, broccolis and whole snow peas, with chicken and ginger sesame sauce, on whole wheat spaghetti. The exact veggie mix and sauce type depends on what I can scavange at our tiny farmtown Co-op.

What kind of meat/alternate/sauce/noodles/veggies do you like to have in stir-fries?

ETA: I let the chicken sit in running cold water while I ran off to the store to grab groceries (<20 minutes), and it's already mostly thawed except for some small spots in the middle! The Co-op didn't have my sesame-ginger sauce, though :(

Foreign country vs. America

Situation:

My father's military is allowing me to use the veterans assistance for college. It is a lot cheaper over in the Philippines, where my dad lives. Clark area to be exact. The VA doesn't cover much here in Maryland. Everything would be free in the Philippines. I live with my mom and stepdad, work as a receptionist in an auto body shop, which I don't mind much. I feel as if I'm a twenty-four year old burden that is. Is it worth picking up and going to school in a third world country?!

What would you do?

Notes: Dad is 75 years old.
Mom is a pain in the ass and making me feel like a burden.
Stepdad is an asshole.
I went to the Philippines this past summer. I half missed it, but half don't.

When I go back home I'll live with my parents again for awhile, while I save up money.

I don't want to live in that city forever, and I want to move somewhere else, but I haven't decided where yet. I feel like if I get my own place back home I'll never have a real reason to leave, plus it seems like a waste to spend money on rent when I could live with my parents.

Do you think it would be a better idea to get my own place or would it hold me back from moving somewhere else? I am so scared to move because I have difficulty adjusting to new places, but I know I have to. My goal is to save up six months' worth of rent, and as soon as I do that I would like to move.

Also my parents might move out of state in about three years, but I obviously wouldn't live with them that long.

I'm afraid I'm going to have to miss class tonight because of the weather and that I'm commuting (I'm trying to leave at 4p to get there at 6p - I don't know if I'll get there on time with the rain + hail).

Thank you so much.

If not, why? Do you intend to ever change that?

I don't eat healthy, in my opinion. I don't get much fruit/veggies, and I don't drink water. I'm 22, and I'm worried how much damage I've already done to my body.. BUT. I'd like to start being conscious about what I put into my body, not just eat what is convenient. I was raised to just eat whatever I want.
This is so ridiculous.

$$$$

TQC, I currently make $500/month in a country where $325/month is minimum wage. I'm from the States, and so this $500 dollars isn't going far in regards to paying back my debts (credit card, loans, etc), and I have to put $200 a month toward school. Recently I found a job offer for my same job (at a different company) that pays $1300 a month. Additionally, my boss told me yesterday that they had to go through "hundreds" of applications in order to find a person like me, and that since I got to the job, they have been able to be "200% more productive." I've been working here since Jan. 9th and I show up every day 2 hours early, save three days that I took off because I got married (as opposed to the 5 allotted legally by the country's labor laws).

1. Is it too early to ask for a raise?

3. How much do you make a month (if you wanna share)?
4. The last time you got a raise, how much did your pay go up?

Tax help

Is anyone here good with taxes? I need help!

To make a long story short, IRS rejected my e-file.

(The husband talked me into going to Jackson Hewitt because this is the first year filing with the house..which I could have done on my own but I freaking caved and here we are.)

IRS says the info they have doesn’t match what Social Security has.

The only thing I can think of is, she put my daughter being with us for 12 months, but in all reality, she was with us for 1/2 a month.

Would that be the "mismatch"? Name and social security number are right (believe me, I checked, re-checked, and triple checked).

Social Security tells me that if their info is right, then the IRS's should be because they get their info from Social Security.

Tax lady told us we could paper file, which would take 5-7 weeks or wait 2 weeks until the IRS has the mismatch "resolved"..whatever the hell that means because there shouldn't be anything to resolve!

Is there ever an appropriate time to give lingerie as a gift, assuming your SO doesn't know in advance? If so, what are they?

V-day

What are you doing for valentines day?

What should I do for valentines day? Our plans have been ruined by forecasted rain. :-( We don't have a ton of money, but we do have a sitter for the day, so we gotta get out and do something.

okay, techies..



The other night my boyfriend asked if he could plug his iPod [3rd gen Nano] into my computer to charge it before he went to work, using my USB cable. [I have a 1st generation] and it charged just fine, and hooked up to my iTunes just fine.

Now we've been trying to hook it up to his computer, using his USB cable, and the computer isn't recognizing his iPod, but it is recognizing mine.

I just tried hooking it up to my computer again, and still, nothing.

I've tried resetting his iPod, and re-installing iTunes on his computer, but nothing has worked...

What happened to his iPod and is there anything I can do right now besides wait to take it in, etc.?

Will you comment other people and tell them what you think is commonly known about them if they're not sure?

bear with me as i attempt to explain...

if someone had scars in the middle of their back that were horizontal, parallel, and numerous (like 20 of them or so in a row, starting from left and right, intertwining and overlapping), what would you think they were from?

would you ever go to an invite-only party by yourself when you wouldn't know anyone else there besides the host? also, this is a sober party..

a friend of mine is having a birthday get together on friday and only like 15 people are invited and i don't know any of her friends. i am not allowed to bring anyone.

also, i haven't spent time with this friend in a while.. and she always liked to drink and toke. so i am a bit surprised at the specific "THIS IS A SOBER PARTY" bit at the end of the invite.

could she have joined some kind of religious cult? is she going to try and convert me?

1. What do you think of people who say, "If you don't want them inside, you don't want them" in reference to pets.
1a. If you think this, why do you feel that way?
1b. If you keep your pets outside does it really bother you when people say things like that?

2. I just got home from work so I'm particularly grumpy about this right now:  Are you one of those people who leave merchandise all over the store in the wrong spots because you decide you don't want it anymore?

If you answered "yes" to number two, will you give me your address so I can come and stab you in the eye repeatedly?

The end is nigh.

Do you think we're headed for the Apocalypse?



Edit: I ask because Australia's having it tough at the moment - I'm pretty sure that we're having our own mini apolcalypse. A cyclone hit Queensland (my state) and now more than 50% of it is underwater and officially declared a disaster zone. It's been at least a week now and the flood waters aren't receding and is starting to spread disease. Not to mention that the water is now filled with crocodiles who are attacking people in previously crocodile-free areas.

Down in Victoria, the worst bushfire in the history of our country has been going on for days. Multiple sites are lit, the flames are moving 120km an hour (75 miles p/h) so that once people see flames or smoke, it's too late. Huge numbers of people have been killed in their cars while trying to leave the area. More than 200 people are dead and 5000 people are evacuated or homeless. The fire is so hot that car hub caps have melted. Thousands of animals have been stranded.

Sounds like end of days to me.

When I was little, there was a movie that I watched that I can't remember the title of. One of the movie scenes had a working mother/grandmother in a clothing factory (I think) but somehow she got caught into a huge machine and got squashed... flat and it was bloody everywhere. Does anybody remember the name of the movie?

Oh my gosh, it was the mangler

What is the last thing to piss you off?

My mom has been nagging me to get a letter for a scholarship done. I finally did it, and told her it was bad (because I have no clue how I am suppose to write it other than listing things.) Then she proceeded to complain about how bad it is and offered no suggestions.

Which is better, Pandora or last.fm or another?

Was anyone else present for the car "chase" on ohnotheydidnt last night?
