I made a pumpkin pie, but all I had was a large can of pumpkin (for 2 pies). Since I only used half, is the other half bad, or is there a good way to store it for next time? And, can I freeze it so as to not have to use it right away?

I have a guy friend who I really like, but I do not know if he likes me back. I keep trying to figure this out and it really bothers me. We see each other every day and he calls me all the time, not the other way around. It's getting to the point where I feel like my heart is just plain sad all the time because we see each other so much and I wish we were more than friends.

How do you get a guy friend to see you as more than a friend? And is it possible for me to just get him to hook up with me and get it out of my system? I need to!!

I believe this is getting rather silly.

Now for something completely different;

1. Do you like sketch comedy? If so, which ones?

1a. What's your favorite bit?

(It would great if you could post a video of it.)

2. If you don't like sketch comedy, what is the most dramatic, gut wrenching book you've ever read?

Okay, say there is someone you send Christmas and birthday gifts to. You have a busy schedule so you mail things out late, but you always get them something.

You get into a discussion with them about it, and they say that they are very grateful. They also say, "And all your gifts to me have been late, but I don't mind."

Would this strike you as a bit ungrateful?

stupid question is stupid

When you go to the grocery store and they bag your stuff, do they generally put it back in your cart for you or are you supposed to take your bags from the counter to your cart?

I only ask because my neighborhood safeway has always bagged them and put them in the cart in one fell swoop, but then that store closed recently so I go to a new safeway... and these people bag them on the counter and then act all huffy to get them in the cart and it makes me feel like they were waiting for me to take my bags from the counter to the cart, even though my old safeway used to do it without it even being in question.

Hi guys,

A good friend and I have a standing dinner date, where we take turns cooking for each other.  She is forever trying out awesome new recipes when she cooks for me, whereas I tend to stick with my old stand-bys.  I'd really like to make something new when I cook this Sunday, but there are just too many options out there - google is crazy-ful of recipes, and even my cookbooks are a little too overwhelming.  Hence, my question:

Do you have any excellent recipes that are relatively healthy (or that can be modified to be so), and that are good for icy cold weather (-29*C/-20*F) that you love?  I especially like well-seasoned food, doesn't matter if it's spicy or not, provided it isn't bland.  I'm competent in the kitchen, so it doesn't matter if the recipe is simple or more difficult, either.

Has anyone here ever gotten a spray tan?

I have. But sometimes after sex and the clean up... it comes off on where my boyfriend splooged.

Any idea why? Or what can be done to prevent this? It looks weird having pale cum stains on my body, even if they are semi-permanent.

Relationship drama

my bf and I moved in w/ each other about 1 month ago. his stuff was shipped here about 2 weeks ago but he's been sooooo lazy about unpacking. we live in a small one bedroom and his stuff is piled up in the bedroom and living room in boxes, storage bins, etc. and I am really really annoyed.

the thing is that he works all day and I don't. I am studying for the GRE right now and he's supporting us financially. But I honestly can't focus or study in this house because there's stuff EVERYWHERE. I get soooo annoyed and uptight about it

so should I just suck it up and unpack and clean up for him or should I leave his mess his own and make him clean it up himself? I've tried asking him, yelling about it, bitching and nagging about it

should I let this go and just do it myself?

the other thing is we spent a lot of money on buying fold up bikes so that we could commute to work or school. But he's been staying up downloading various engineering software and setting up his computer, so he has only ridden his bike to work like 2x in the past 4 weeks and he's been driving our SUV instead because he's sleeping in, etc.

I am annoyed about this because he's the one that insisted we get these expensive bikes and bus passes and use them for our main source of transportation

is all this worth nagging him about and continuing to bitch about it? or should I just let it go? cuz I have clearly let him know that it bothers me, so there's no real point to fight about it... should I just let it go and let him get settled on his own?

i might cry because i'm watching The Jeremy Kyle show & there's a family on it who have lost a baby boy. he was a day old, the mum was cuddling him/holding him on the sofa, then she fell asleep. she woke up at 4am and he was dead. she still blames himself to this day & she's been drunk ever since.

i don't let my dog in my room because she always gets in trouble when she's in there. but once in a while she manages to get in. when i shoo her out she does this little growl and grabs something on her way out, like a sock or a scarf. once she tried to grab the sheet i had on the ground.

WHY is she doing this?

You're at the supermarket and you put your favorite food into the cart. You're hungry and looking forward to eating it afterwards. It happens to be the last one on the shelf. You're pushing the cart about when Jude Law angrily approaches you, reaches into your cart, and takes out that food. "I'm bloody famous and I deserve it, not you". You object and heated words are exchanged. Jude, having a bad day, takes a swing at you. A fight breaks out. What happens?

You fought the Law and kicked the Law's ass. You shall eat like a champ

This is going to sound stupid, but... One of my teachers put me and another student in contact with a local business that was looking for a character design for a mascot. They want to put him on bench ads, print ads, t-shirts, etc.

She wants to pay us $200 for this. Is this reasonable? It seems reasonable to me, but I don't know much about this kind of thing.

Are you as excited about Cadbury eggs as I am? I've eaten like a dozen since they started selling them at Wal-Mart.

Have any of you done the weight loss clinic programs that give you shots like those HcG shots?

my mom is thinking of going to this place http://www.medshapeweightloss.com/ and has asked me to go with her

but I don't get it how it works, how is it possible for people to lose so much weight by simply getting shots? it sounds too good to be true and I am worried that they are going to get her on some weird pills and fuck her up. My mom is like 5.4 and weights 190lbs, she is dead set on losing about 60 lbs and she's already lost 30 on her own, but is looking into this program along with lipo.

any of you have any info? experience or advice?

What is the protocol in such circumstances?

I'm confused

My not-boyfriend and I went to the strip club last night. He got me a lap dance and as the girl was finishing up, she leaned over and I am 99% positive she said, "Next time you come here, don't bring him." Then she smiled coyly, took her money, and left. The music was really loud, so I can't be sure that's what she said.

But if it was, what the heck did she mean by that??? Non-serious answers, please!

Imaginary Famous Quote?

For the past few days I've been researching the origins of the quote "Life is the sum of all your choices," but am running into difficulty in discovering the true origin. The saying is most often attributed to Camus, but at times is referenced as a Voltaire quote, which is confusing me greatly. Moreover, I'd really like to find this quote in its original French, but a search of French websites returns no results. It's as if the quote never existed except in English motivational books and quote collection websites. If anyone has more information about this quote or perhaps knows the original text from which it came, that would be awesome!

Now, for kicks, what are the best quotes you've read recently from an actual book (as opposed to overhearing or from a quote book)?

Me and my ex-boyfriend ran into each other last night. We've been broken up for 3 months, but we're still friends. And I'm still not quite over him, which makes things complicated.

Since we broke up, even though he was the one that broke it off, although it was somewhat mutual, he's been kind of oddly affectionate with me. At my birthday party two months ago, he insisted on hugging me three times before he left. I ran into him last night, and he told me how good it was to see me. He said he missed me and we should hang out soon (in a friends way, one would think). I gave him what I thought was a kind of friendly hug, and he kind of ran his fingers through my hair. Which isn't something you'd typically do with a friend, right?

What's going on? And what should I do? He's making it quite difficult to get over him.

Would you say something to the parent or report it to the authorities or do nothing? Do you think it's one of those things that is open to interpretation or is it pretty black and white?

So it's my little brothers very first school ball tonight (aww) and he's going with his female BFF. He was instructed a week or so ago to procure a wrist corsage for her (She got his boutonniere thing) and it had to have frangipani flowers in it. I don't know how the fuck she found a thing for him with frangipanis in it, because they are NOT corsage-type flowers. Hence, still no corsage.

So being the awesome big sister I am, I volunteered last night to make one from fake frangipanis. Forgetting entirely, of course, that I have NO IDEA WHAT I AM DOING. I have a whole bunch of small flowers, one biggish one, and five or six leaves to work with, plus two kinds of gold ribbon and some pale yellow velveteen ribbon. Her dress is gold, but I don't actually know anything beyond that.

Behind the cut is my efforts so far, but I really have no idea whether they're good/shit/on the right track at all or not. Opinions, please?

Poll #1356832 Sexual question for the ladies: another celebrity supermarket poll

You're on your period. You feel bloated AND you didn't shave your legs (for those of you who do). You don't feel very sexy and you look like how you feel. Plus, you're wearing your period underwear or granny panties if you don't have period undies. You're at the supermarket, buying some comfort food or whatever, when you bump into the celebrity you fancy the most. He/she looks even better in person. And a little intoxicated. The celebrity starts hitting on you, and you learn from the conversation that he/she is REALLY horny and doesn't have anyone to hook up with, and is coming onto you in the hopes that you can do the job. What do you do?

I agree to go with the celebrity, but I warn him/her beforehand what to expect. I can understand if they lose interest
I agree to go home with the celebrity. I don't say anything about the period. Let him/her find out the hard way, when it's too late to change their mind
I turn him/her down. It's way to embarrassing to hook up this way
I turn him/her down. I can't cheat on my SO
I turn him/her down. I refuse to compromise my integrity with a drunken booty call, albeit with someone really sexy

Wedding Blues

Hi all!
My brother is getting married in August. I was really excited for them and was hoping I would be able to be a bridesmaid. However, when we talked about it my brother and his fiance had decided to have only two people stand up for them at the wedding. They then asked me if I could do the photos for their wedding. I was pleased and miffed at the same time. I really like doing wedding photos but OMG I'm family! It takes a lot of work to photograph a wedding! Ok, so, I'd come to terms with that.
Last night I was talking with my brother and his fiance and I found out that they were actually having six people in the wedding party - my older BROTHER (!) being one of them. Am I being selfish? Is it wrong of me to be upset? May I add that my younger brother and I have a better relationship then my brothers have ever had with eachother?

If I have had it already, I'm free and clear because my bf can't give it to me again. But, if I haven't, I will most certainly get it. I just want to know what to expect, since if I were to get it and have to miss a month of class, I may not graduate.

I was only wearing it for two days to catch one of my heart flutters. It might be capable of being repaired (if I just cracked the screen and nothing else) but fuckfuckfuck I have cost my father $2,000 in a completely random expense. He's not too worried about it but I am beyond upset.

I want to get a job ASAP (I've been unemployed while I work as a fulltime student.. I live at home) to help pay for it. But the happy ladies at the doctor's office gave me a new monitor to wear for the next two days. Why they trust me with this, I don't know.. But I'm all wired up and I can't shower til Sunday. I have already not showered since Thursday.

I have a big screen samsung television that is probably at least 15 years old. Just now the picture started curving in and changing colors, and then it just turned off. Now when I try to turn it on repeatedly, it immediately turns itself off. Has my tv finally died on me? :(

Every time I dream about zombies (which is often), right after being bitten by a zombie a person's eyes turn red. Has this ever happened in a movie or something? I have no idea where my subconscious picked that up, but I figure I must have seen it somewhere since it's so consistent.

My dad bough me a dog back in November fo a present when I got out of jail. I love him to death, but I'm just wondering how big he's going to get??
I believe he's around 5 months now. Somewhere around 40lbs, And he's a Shar pei/ Boxer mix

Also, what's the latest I can get him fixed? I don't have a lot of money right now, but I know I'm supposed to do it before a certain time I guess. I heard they get depressed or something.

Do you have pictures of your dog as a puppy, and now of an adult so I can see how different it looks?

What did you do for your 21st birthday?

My parents said they will either pay for me to have a party somewhere (like at a bar or a restaurant) or take me on holidays with them in the middle of the year to a nice resort AND give me some money towards my overseas trip a few months later. I chose the latter option, and much to the disappointment of my friends, have decided not to even have a small, informal gathering for my birthday. Is this as weird as they are saying it is? Keep in mind we are in Australia, where 21 is technically just another birthday (we can drink/drive/gamble etc. at 18).

Summer job!

I'm 14 years old and looking to get my first job this summer, hopefully at a Child Daycare Center. (I have no idea if they will hire me but I know they are looking to hire.)  My parents will not support my interest in photography so I want to take matters into my own hands and buy a 600 dollar camera + all the other crap that you need with it, by the end of the summer.

Approximately how much money do you think I can make if I steadily work there for like 5 hours a day for the whole summer?

And what was your first job like? 

edit: I would be 15 this summer and the reason why I am pretty confident that I can get a job is because ALL of my friends have jobs. You wouldn't believe it haha.

Who is lamer?

My sister's watching cricket on TV. I'm sitting here, wishing I could name my puppies after characters from Homestar Runner.

The commentator says (for some reason) "that was a very memorable sixty nine".

I thought this was hilarious. My sister did not.

Back me up here. Was that not funny?

Also, tell me something funny you heard someone say, but not mean to say.

Any cool & somewhat easy ideas on how to recycle old jeans?

How do you store your make-up?

My mom bought that make-up bag for me and said it would make my storage easier because the bag is clear... I can easily see where everything is. NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH. I usually have to dump the whole thing out to find something. I think the consequence is... me not using my make-up? Except for a few key items...

What's one thing your SO can say that will piss you off to no end?

I was just talking to my bf about how he's going drunk driving tonight and he needs a DD and he said "Okay, mom!"

Tomorrow, I'm supposed to get two henna tattoos for a play I'm doing. One is to be a tribal armband, and the other just has to be on my right breast.

#1: What should I get on my tit?
#2: How do I live down the shame of wearing these until they fade?
#3: Have you ever had mehndi decorations on your palms?

Growth around vertical labret

So guys, I know this is TQC and not a piercing community, but I am not a member of anything like that and I know some of you know about piercings. I got my vertical labret pierced like six months ago with no issues. But today I noticed a small fleshy lump next to it (and accidentally bit down on it, and realized it wasn't just a flap of dead chapped lip skin). It is slightly firm, but has some give, and is not at all painful, even if pulled on, pinched, etc. Picture behind cut.

I immediately washed it with a mild unscented soak and did a hot sea salt soak. Anything else I should do? I'm freaking out! What the fuck is this?

1)Do you preorder books from amazon a lot? why?

I am lazy.

2)Should I start scheduling my free time so I have more of a balance of reading time, video game time and dvd watching time?

3)what do you feel guilty about?

I don't work 70 hour weeks.

boring pregnant question

how do we tell my father-in-law that there's no fucking way our baby will call him "poppy"?

why do people who've had kids before think they know everything about being pregnant and having a newborn?

what is so hard to understand about "we want to exclusively breastfeed. stop giving us formula"?
