What do I say in an e-mail that basically says "here's my CV for job X" without just writing "Please find the attached CV in reference to job X". It's late at night and that's all I can think of but I really think I ought to write more than one sentence.

Think for me, TQC! Please?

Using 5 adjectives in your answer, how do you feel this very moment?

Was that phrased oddly? I'm too tired, I can't tell.

Me: I'm tired, stressed, cranky, annoyed and angry. It's that time of the school quarter. I need to chill the fuck out a little. But I don't know how to slow myself down and actually recollect. Sleeping doesn't even do it.

TQC, what are some good stores/online stores to buy decent "boho" or "hippie" looking clothes? Preferably on the cheaper side, as opposed to a store like Free People which is awesome but does not work for a college girl like me.

Vintage or new, doesn't matter to me.

*Besides thrift stores, sorry I didn't mention that before.. that's a given.

What's the best tip for maintaining consistency instead of alternating between bowling 120s and 220s? (I have an monstrously long stride already, so I'm sticking with a four step approach, I throw a 16 pound Arch Rival with mostly no revs, and I can pick any speed from 15 to 20 mph and throw within .5 in either direction consistently.)

Are you going to Anime Expo this year?

Tempest, Rampart, Gauntlet, or Cyberball? (Or some other Atari game, I suppose.)

It is 5am Wednesday morning. I am about to go to bed. I have to get up at 7am on Thursday morning.
Should I set an alarm for about 5 hours from now and force myself to get up to ensure that I am tired in the evening and so can sleep? If I don't set an alarm then I will probably sleep until about 2pm. And then I won't be able to go to bed in order to get up early.
OH THE DILEMMA. So how much sleep should I get TQC?!

I've been eating horribly since the beginning of the term. As a lazy student, I find myself eating too many peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, cereal, and um...that's sort of it. :/ I try to eat a banana or a handful of baby carrots here and there, but it's never anywhere near my big 5.

What sort of quick, healthy meals do you fix for yourself? Any ideas?

I just travelled for an hour to college to meet my friends so we could work on college reports together. They all live about 15 minutes away. I arrived and am sat waiting in the library when I get a text saying all three of then are not coming in until 2pm. This was at 8:30am. I have no other reason to be here. I have every reason to be pissed, y/y?

I need to book a holiday with Thomson for April 2010, however I have NO idea where I would like to go. I'm thinking Kenya. Where do you like to go on holiday and why? Plus plus plus if it's extremely hot and has things to do.

Thanks TQC.

Good morning, TQC!

I AM GOING TO GET A JOB TODAY, Y/Y? D:< Y.

I left my Crest White Strips on my teefs too long this morning! Later today they are going to fall out/kill me with the pain of sensitivity, y/n?

Have you ever used a tooth whitening product? (Whitening toothpaste does not count as it does not work.) What kind? How long did it take you to see results?

I use Crest White Strips, obv! I used 4 or 5 strips in a row a couple years ago (one set of strips a day for 4 or 5 days) and I got the desired results I wanted. Since then I've been using one set of strips every other month or so for maintenance (I drink A LOT of coffee). You'd think I'd remember to TAKE THEM OUT AFTER 30 MINUTES by now... nope.

You get inspired to write a screenplay, and you crank it out and it's perfect. It's genius and an act of love. It's your baby and you know it'll make some money. You shop it around and it gets some minor feedback and some weak offers, but one day, you get a call from a major producer in Hollywood. "I love your screenplay and I'd like to buy it for $150,000. I'm going to start work on it at once. I feel that I should inform you that I'm considering rewriting it a bit and turning it into a comedy. Pauly Shore is seeking to make a comeback and I believe I can turn this into something that'll make him a household name again. Just imagine that! You'll be responsible for the return of Pauly Shore. How cool will that be? Anyway, do we have a deal?"

Yes. Ruin my screenplay. Just gimme the money

Same as above. You write a brilliant screenplay about the most beautiful romance ever (just play along if it's not in you). It'll make every other love story look as insincere as a Girls Gone Wild video. You shop it around and again, not many offers, but you get a phone call from a bigshot Hollywood producer. "I love your screenplay. I'll pay you $100,000 for it. I have to tell you up front that I've given copies of it to Keanu Reeves and Jessica Simpson, and they're the ones I'm probably going with. Won't that sell some tickets? Do we have a deal?"

Yes. Ruin everything with crappy actors. Just gimme the money

1. You know those Charmin commercials where the bear is wiping his butt and dancing around with toilet paper? Are those commercials directly related to the "Does a bear shit in the woods?" saying? Or are animated bears just cute and cuddly?

I mean, surely who ever created those ads is aware of "Does a bear shit in the woods?" It just seems like an odd idea for a commercial.

2. What brand of toilet paper do you use?

3. Do you take off your shoes when you get home? Do you require guests to remove their shoes if they’re going to be walking around your house? If you had a friend come over, and they didn’t remove their shoes upon entering, would you consider that rude? Conversely, is it rude to request shoe removal?

So last year I got invited to drive about 150 miles to visit an acquaintance at the college he transferred to. I had a boyfriend at the time, who would not have gone (he did not like the acquaintance). It was mentioned again a couple months later, after the boy and I broke up. Finally this week I made solid plans to go visit. The acquaintanceship has developed into a friendship since last year, and although our conversation last night was full of lulz and win, it was also very sexual in nature.

If not, why else would he want me to visit?

Schools around the nation are starting to provide children with a "cold" meal -- consisting of a cold cheese sandwich, fruit and a milk -- if the child's parents are late at paying for the "hot lunch" meals.

Students with free/reduced meal plans are unaffected by such policies.

These kinds of programs can be recognized as successful in reducing unpaid lunch charges -- charges which in some areas had tripled over just the last 2 years.

However, many argue that the cold lunch isn't a sufficient meal and that it is wrongly punishing children for their parents' actions.

TQC: What do you think?

Does anyone have similar problems?

I just want to know I'm not alone in this world. :( Okay, maybe it's not that dramatic.

I've never gone to the gym to work out before, I've always been thin so I never thought I needed to. I'm very out of shape though, and my bottom half is flabby, so I want to fix this.

a) How do I not feel ridiculous? I'm afraid I'm going to go and use the machines and run and look really awkward. I don't know. I don't think I'm very coordinated.

b) What kind of exercises should I do, if I'm just toning up/trying not to get easily winded? Running on the treadmill, I know, but for how long at first? I know I want to use the bike and elliptical, too.

Do you normally tip your barber/hairdresser a standard amount, or does it depend on the haircut?

How do you normally feel after getting a haircut?

should I be mad at my barber for not listening to me and giving me this super short haircut, or myself for letting an old lady who "doesn't get long hair on boys" cut my hair?

How much is an ounce of marijuana?

Tom Ammiano wants to legalize and tax marijuana in California, and he would levy $50/ounce on retail sales. Is that reasonable or unreasonable?

Do you smoke pot now?
Would you smoke it if it were legal?

Have you ever bought from amazon.com? Any good/bad experiences to share? I'm considering buying from but am feeling a little afraid because I stay in Singapore and I don't know whether my package will get lost/incur crazy shipping fees.

Who would I contact about animal laws for my city? Specifically how many animals you're allowed to have at one house. I tried the town website but it was no help.

ETA: My town doesn't have its own animal shelter so that isn't an option.

ETApt2: I found a telephone number!

i've never framed things before soo..

i know framing can be expensive, but on the flip side can you do it on the cheap?
anyone crafty got advice/ideas for framing stuff?


i know it's kinda nerdy, but i got the 12th volume of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and it came with four mini posters and i thought it would make a cool picture thing if i framed them all together. but i don't want to do it so bad that i'll pay moneys upon moneys. i'd like to do it myself but i don't know much and am not too terribly crafty.

So are things really that bad in Mexico? They were talking about it on the news here tonight, it sounded seriously fucked up, with someone saying the country is on the brink of completely collapsing. A fucked up economy and a bunch of well-armed, well-organized militias right along your border doesn't sound too flash. How do you reckon that'll go?

If your parents pay for your college tuition (or the majority of it), then are you obligated to run academic decisions by them beforehand?  Like dropping a class, dropping out of a program or changing a major, having a post-graduation career planned, etc.  Why?

ETA:  How much say should they have in what you do?  If they pay, are you obligated to do what they want you to do, or else forfeit your tuition?

My university is holding auditions for a series of student-directed one-acts tomorrow and I'm going to try out! Woo! Now, auditions are really relaxed and informal. I'm expected to give a 60-90 second performance of some kind-- it can be a song, a joke, a dance, or a monologue for starters, but really it can be anything. (Last year a guy spent a full 60 seconds just making different kinds of vomiting noises and he got cast, folks.) So I plan to have fun with this.
The only problem is, I can't decide what my audition piece should be! D: I really want to do a dramatic interpretation of "I Kissed A Girl" told as a confession, but I also like the idea of telling a joke.
Do you guys have any spectacular ideas for me?
What would YOU use as an audition piece, TQC?

1. do you remember Dunkaroos?

2. what about Street Sharks?

3. how did people warm up pasta before microwaves(the pasta, not the sauce)?

4. is there a TV show or movie you watched a lot as a kid that you thought everyone else was down with, only to find out later in life that actually very few people were into it/even knew what it was?

i've been watching a lot of Mystery Science Theater 3000 again and i'm finding almost none of my friends were too terribly into it, or were even sure they knew what it was before the "oh yeah the guys at the bottom of the screen" comments, while me and my sister watched it religiously since i was about 9 years old. even my mom remembers it. also, apparently no one else was obsessed with The Chipmunk Adventure.

I was just invited to go to a cabin for a drinking weekend thing. This is a tradition from a dorm I lived in a few years ago, and I went back then, and it was pretty fun.

This time it's with a slightly different group of people and I only know about half of them.

Five weeks after this event takes place I am going to do the exact same thing except I know every single person on that trip.

Should I go to both the first and second one? The weather has a good chance of being coldish the first time because it's in late March and the weather here sucks until, like, June, and last time the heater broke. Also it's going to be exhausting because there will be no sleep involved and I don't really drink (like I'll drink two beers and everyone else will drink 12+ in a day).

But there are more single people in the first group and I have a higher chance of hooking up with one of them.

WWTQCD?

Edit: Should I get on the pill before I go? Lulllzzzz

Slogans

Are there any slogans that pop in your mind throughout the day? If so, which ones?

Whenever I'm cleaning the slogan... *We work hard so you don't have to* pops in my head and it drives me crazy!

Vista

OK I know this isn't really the proper community for this type of question but oh well. The computer communities I am in are always really slow to respond.

I built a new PC and it is my first with Vista. I hit the power button in the start menu to put it to 'sleep' and it said in the help menu to press the hardware power button to turn it back on. I wanted to read that before I did it because I remember I couldn't get it to come back on properly with my last computer with XP. Well.. its not turning back on. No matter what I do. I pressed reset; I held down the power button, I flicked the power switch on the back on and off, I pulled out the power plug, I punched buttons on the keyboard.. nothing. I can't get the OS I can't get the BIOS, no picture.. nothing. What do I do???

I had the hardware power button set to hibernate and that always worked fine but I wanted to see what 'Sleep' would do. Well, I don't like it!

Edit: fixed it. Turned power off and on a couple times and then held down the power button to turn it on and it started up normally. WTF?

I think I just ruined the best thing that could have ever happened to me friendship wise. (Yes, the guy I mentioned the other day) How do I make it up to him and let him know not only how sorry I am, but I'm not some bitchy workaholic famewhore. (I'm a graphic designer and journalist and deal a lot with the media)

And that I truly really do care about him, I just get so damn scared around him that I babble and make an ass of myself?

SERIOUS ANSWERS ONLY PLEASE!!!!!!!! I'm a freaking MESS right now.

Why was it racist to make a cartoon of a chimp dead with two cops standing over it with a smoking gun, but making cartoons of George W. Bush being portrayed as a primate isn't?
