I agreed to go away for the weekend with my aunt, unfortunately I didn't know that this would be the same weekend that my sister is moving in.
My sister does have moving men, a husband, and her brother-in-laws to help them move their stuff.

Should I still go away or should I stay home to help?

so, tqc, i am currently flat hunting. i went and looked at a place on saturday and have been "called back" this weekend because they can't decide between me and another person. bearing that in mind.

1. why would someone want to live with you?
2. why would someone want to live with me?
3. what's your ideal roommate/flatmate like?

and on an unrelated note:
do you have "la cucaracha" stuck in your head?

I never asked for new one... but my previous monitor was a 19in.

I just opened up my vday gift from the s.o ( it arrived this afternoon).. it's a Dell 24in wide monitor.

It's been an hour, and my eye sights have been chanting " you're gonna go blind.. you're gonna go blind". I <3 him but, i'm still trying to understand- " WHO really needs a 24in shoved in their face..what the heck was he thinking?"

TQC, do you think i'll go blind staring at this new screen.. let's say: within a year?

Do you worry when you don't hear from your s/o?
Say you always spend time together every night online, and you know they get off work at 9, if by 1 am you didn't hear from em. What would you do?
Would you wait, call his house and maybe wake his parents up, or not care?

If you don't have a s/o, What's the last think you ate?

Who has a NDS here?

I already have some games for the nds ( Brain age, Travel games for Dummies, Geo war galaxies, Race driver and last but not least: Meteos.)

TQC, could you recommend me some awesome* Nintendo DS games to play?

Thanks in advance :D!

Moral Compass

You are visiting a tourist attraction and they are closing for the day. As you go out to your car, you see a 10 megapixel fancy camera just sitting on the ground next to your car. You pick it up and look at it and there are pictures of the inauguration on it. It looks like these people were mere FEET from Obama! They also stayed in a really fancy hotel in DC and New York. You have the option of keeping this camera or turning it in to the Lost and Found. What do you do?

Do you keep it or turn it in?

valentines gifts

1. would you like it if your SO gave you a Vermont Teddy Bear?
2. how about a PajamaGram?
3. does the fact that each of these gifts start at $50 and can cost over $100 per gift change your opinion?

1. would you ever get your SO a Vermont Teddy Bear?
2. how about a PajamaGram?
3. would you seriously spend at least $50 on a teddy bear or mail-order pajamas?

4. what gift would you rather give/receive for around $50-$100?

alright, so my dad called me tonight saying that he was putting 100 dollars in my bank account so that i could go out and buy my mom something for valentines day; he lives across the country for work, so i get stuck doing this a lot. when i asked if he had any ideas, he told me "you think of something" and hung up. problem is, my mom is IMPOSSIBLE to shop for. she doesn't like flowers, chocolate, or romance in general. she's not into shopping or clothes or manicures or anything girly. she doesn't drink, and i already took her out for a fancy dinner a couple of weeks ago and i have plans on saturday anyways. basically the only thing she's interested in are decorations and throw pillows and stuff for the house, but she's very picky about those things. i have no idea what to get her :(

help meeee tqc, what should i get for my mom?

So I've recently broke up with my boyfriend. It was messy and I were not really friends anymore.
Thing is, he's who I buy my weed through and I'm really crap at rolling so he usually does it for me.

I hate him, but I really want a spliff. Is it a completely bad idea to get him to buy some and roll it for me?
It would involve me having to go to his house and wait for him to get it done, which tends to take a while.
I have to see him 5 days a week at college anyway, so it's not like i'd be calling him out of the blue.

my husband and i shop at the nearby publix on our breaks from work or after work. there's a boy who does carts/bags groceries who we've been "stalking." "stalking" really just means i stare at him because he averts his eyes and it's funny, we pick the lane he's in if he's bagging, and i've yelled WOO! loudly out the window when we drive past him in the parking lot.
yesterday i found him on myspace and have been msging him and iming him. i told him we were doing it for fun, and no, i'm not trying to get with him (which SHOULD be obvious since i'm pregnant and always with my husband), and i think that may have disappointed him.

did i ruin the fun?

I just took the test (and think i did really fucking good), and after looking at myself in the mirror, I notice that I'm about a week away from a goatee. I've never had any facial hair other than just stubble before. Should I let it grow out, or shave it off now while it's grody and prevy-lookin?

If you are in the USA, was the gardisil ("cervical cancer") vaccine free for you? or heavily subsidised at least? I don't understand you health care system.

Would you be more likely to get a vaccine that said it would prevent cervical cancer, or herpes on your cervix?

Why isn't the vaccine done by weight? I'm quite small, but I'd be getting the same dose as a quarterback, isn't that bad?

EDIT: was there an uproar from fundies about this?


My friend is the type of person to drop off the face of the planet, and she has just done so. The problem is, we have plans to travel together, and I NEED to talk to her about accommodations. She hasn't let me call her and I've been trying to get her to let me for three months. Let's not get into the whole "I shouldn't try to be friends with her" thing because she does this to everyone, and yes, it's annoying, but whatever.

Anyway, her phone apparently blocks my number because it blocks all "unknown" numbers so when I've tried to call her I got her machine and then she wouldn't call me back.

Should I have my mom call her (my mom's phone number will not be blocked) and insist that she give me an EXACT date and time that I can call? I've asked her to do this before but she won't listen. I've tried and tried and she just say to try and call her sometime. I need her to give me a specific time to call her so I know she'll actually pick up the phone.

I know it sounds bad to have my mom call a grown-up and chew her ass out but I have pretty much no other options unless I want to cancel the trip, which I am tempted to do at this point. We're supposed to meet each other in London in three months and if I don't start booking accommodations soon I have a feeling our options will be very limited.

This might be a stupid question.

I'm a sophomore in college and I'm starting to get frustrated with the program/school I'm in. I'm not sure I want to continue in it next Fall and I'm debating transferring. The deadline for transfers for the school I'd want to go to is March 1st and I'm not 100% set in my decision.

Can I apply as a transfer as a sort of "just in case" thing? I'd hate to not apply, and then at the end of the semester regret it and have to wait to apply for Spring.

Edit: Thanks guys. :) One more question since I'm now applying.

It asks for my current college and my "earned credits". I'll have earned 16 by the time I finish this semester. I have 32 transfer credits. What should I put? 0? 16? 48?

Also, it asks for my other college, which I earned 46 credits by their standards (32 by my current colleg). Which should I put?

Vain grasping at motivation...

Hey TQC,

I can't motivate myself to do my job this morning. Combined with a naturally drifting focus, this can lead to lots of unnecesssary worry and strain, but I find it extremely hard to get motivated to participate in such tedium.

Will you share your techniques for finding motivation? What do you do to motivate yourself to perform jobs, school work, chores, etc. that you find tedious and generally dull?

TQC, I've made a stupid mistake at work, and let myself get too involved in what I consider friendships in the workplace, as in, I will cover for my coworker's (friend) mistakes, and it's making me look incompetent. I've always known one of the girls has a tendency to be two-faced, so I avoided covering for her as much as possible, cause I knew the chances were that she wouldn't do the same for me. Well, push came to shove, and she didn't, in fact, she totally fucked me over, for lack of better words. I know that I'm at a point where I can be like, "WELL, SHE DIDN'T DO THIS, THIS, AND THIS, AND I JUST COVERED FOR HER," because that would make me look even worse, kind of like a whiny baby in fact, but I need to do something.

What do you recommend I do to reconcile this problem with my boss? I get very flustered when I'm just face to face, even if I have notes/a script to read from, so I am thinking of doing a letter. What do you think I should do?

What's a good store to get cheap, disposable contacts from in the DC Metro area (Bethesda)? I mean just a regular store to buy them in. Is that possible? I ask if it's possible because people are claiming that only specialty stores sell them, the lens stores.

EDIT: I just want them for the next few days until I get my finished glasses in the mail. I don't want to buy permanent or otherwise expensive contact lenses, because I won't use them again.

EDIT: What are "EV" lenses--the kind for glasses frames not contacts--(NOT "UV")? Did I mishear that?

They are supposed to be lenses are adapted in some way (curved specially?) to match the curvature of my eyes, beyond what normal lenses do.

Apparently, it was the E.V. 4.0 (Eagle Vision) brand lens technology. Under another brand, it's called the Augen Double Aspheric ("High Definition") lens.

So how good is this, really? How do all of these competing technologies compare, like Trivex?

So, after reading this old MSNBC article about the rising trend of leg/bikini waxing among young girls(ages 8-12), I noticed that in the opinion poll, 17% felt that it was okay for kids to get leg and/or bikini waxes("Yes. Waxing is just another part of good grooming.") I was surprised that a decent percentage agreed with the practice, so...

Do you think it's okay to take an 8 year old to get a bikini wax?

Yes. Waxing is just another part of good grooming.

Also, the purpose of giving an 8 year old a bikini wax is that if you start waxing early enough, it'll permanently get rid of the hair. At least that's what one business offering kiddie bikini waxes claims.

ETA2: To clarify more, they get rid of the peach fuzz. I don't quite understand how their crazy logic works, but it's supposed to stop the future pubic hair's growth, therefore, save your daughter from years and years of bikini waxes when she's actually of age. idk either.

1. How would you define your generation? Do you think you can define a generation? Are there any defining works, ideas or events? Do you think it's possible to define a generation when it's still happening? Any other thoughts? (if you prefer, tell me about subsets of your generation?)

2. How would you define eccentricity? (I hope I spelled that right. If not, pretend I did) What makes someone eccentric, are there any requirements? Do you know anyone who fits that definition? If so, who? Any other thoughts?

has anybody here dealt with derealization or depersonalization?  I'm starting to have symptoms again, and recently figured out the description of these two things were very similar to what I've felt.  What were your experiences, or what do you know about it, other than what wikipedia says?

Has anyone ever worked in a call center?

I've worked at one for almost 2 years now and I'm slowly losing faith in the human race. I get asked if you need to take a passport from Dallas to JFK on a weekly basis.

 Is there a way to download videos from Youtube, or at least transfer them to an MP3 player? 

I just got a new player with more space on it and I'm trying to think of songs to put on it. What would you recommend? I'll listen to almost anything but I'm not really a fan of heavy metal and most rap. Thanks!

have you ever seen a transgender woman's post-op "vagina?"

i really want to know if they look like the real thing.


ETA: what do you think about women who get cosmetic surgery on their vaginas to make them cuter?
