omg speaking of anime

I watched this horribly sad anime movie in 2007 about a girl who had to go on this space mission, and left her boyfriend behind. They communicated via text, and he kept getting older and older while she waited for texts back. Finally, I think they both die in the end? (He of old age, she from whatever space battle it was) DOES ANYONE KNOW WTF THIS THING IS???

In other less annoying news, what was the last great book/story you read? I'm getting into Quiroga right now myself.

I just wrote a paper that is a cross between "Oedipus Rex" and "A Modest Proposal." It's about how since Christians are interpreting the bible incorrectly (read: Quiverfull movement), they are inadvertently leading to overpopulation in the United States, and the only solution to curbing the population growth is by introducing homosexuality to children at a younger age by the parents having sex with the child of the same sex. The child will then be more likely to become a homosexual and will not reproduce.

So what should the title be?

TQC, I now have the option of driving down the Florida Key on Saturday and spending a week there OR driving up to Chicago to stay with my Aunt who is awesome and staying there until April 8.

Where do you think I should go? Why?

ETA: I used to live in the burbs and visit Chicago quite frequently. I've never been to the Keys and I live in Florida.

let's not make this a debate...

Every time I ask a question I end up asking one that has two very opinionated sides.  I appreciate how strongly you all argue for what you believe in and I've been delighted to read all of your thoughts.  But I'd like to ask that this time, there is no debate.  If you are a firm believer in everyone having the right to do this, great, that's your opinion.  But it's bothering me, so I'd appreciate answers on what to do to make it stop rather than 'just let them do it, legalize it, okay?'

According to Mother Goose:

Monday's child is fair of face,
Tuesday's child is full of grace,
Wednesday's child is full of woe,
Thursday's child has far to go.
Friday's child is loving and giving,
Saturday's child works hard for a living,
But the child born on the Sabbath Day,
Is fair and wise and good and gay.

Those of you who use internet abbreviations: Do you think in the abbreviation? Do you say "Em-tee-eee" in your head as you type out "mte"? It always seems like it takes more time (for me) to think of what letters I need to use than it takes to just type out the words, especially for the long ones. Does this just seem difficult to me because I don't ever use those abbreviations?

Was/is it a good deal?

Why is PetSmart being lame? I put in an application like a million years ago and I have been bugging them and doing all the right stuff. What the fuck, TQC? I desperately need a job and I know I can do the work at PetSmart easily. I'm totally qualified for any job there. I worked at PetCo for a year so I have good experience in the field.

My cat is mean and aggressive without reason. I was asleep and he jumped up and bit me hard enough to break the skin on my forehead. I have scars all over the place on my arms and legs from him attacking. I've had him since the second he was born, and I took utmost care of him. Why does he do this? What can I do to make him stop? He was fixed when he was 5 months. I wanted to wait until he was 6 months but he was a big boy and I spotted him humping my sheets so I got him fixed right then. So I know it's not some weird un-neutered male thing.

Decions, decisions...

So I was thinking of going abroad to teach ESL but I realized that the main reason I want to go is to get away from my neurotic family. I know that I could use the time I'd be teaching abroad to get my Teaching Degree here - so that I can already start having a real career - but the long to escape is so much greater than the desire to go back to school again. *sigh* I was hoping someone could give me some advice - maybe motivate me to try getting into Teacher's College or assure me that going abroad is good idea despite my main motive.

What kind of advice would you give?

laptop monitor died...

my HP laptop just wouldn't work the other day. Soon found out that it's just the monitor that's not working. The screen at times is a complete greyish glow or it does turn on but flashes and jerks about a lot. I haven't gone to a tech because my warranty has run out and afraid of expenses. Would it be worth getting it fixed? Or just get a separate monitor and hook it up or put this for recycling and get a new laptop altogether? The laptop is just two years old and last year as well I had a big issue with it (but then I still was under warranty).

I need some help with grammar!

This is what I need to say:

The article goes on to say that "A standard blood gas machine will not detect methemoglobin."

Should the "A" be capitalized? Or should I make it lowercase and like this: "a standard blood gas..." But then that's not right because in the original article, it was capitalized. Or should I put brackets around the lowercase a like this: "[a] stand blood gas machine..."? Or maybe I could put this: "... standard blood gas machine[s]"?

I'm probably overthinking this. :( What do you think is the best choice?

Hi there, TQC!

Have you ever made up either a) a scapegoat for something that consistently goes wrong or b) an entity to explain some other repeated occurrence?

When I was little and the house got particularly trashed, my parents said it was because the imaginary butler and maid (Jeeves and Maria respectively) had run away together.

Also, in my first semester of college I kept losing things and I started blaming it on the Verruca Gnomes. My friend and I eventually built up a whole mythology around the VGs - they lived in the sewers and steam vents and were dwarfish in size and fearsome in appearance (big noses, pointed ears, lots of facial hair and sometimes piercings, beady angry eyes). They carried around all the stuff they stole from poor helpless students like ourselves. We still blame everything on the VGs.

This question is regarding the show 'Hells Kitchen'

I watched the first episode of some new season yesterday and they were assigned a simple task, namely to make up some burgers and chips and bits of chicken and pasta for a bunch of kids.

They completely fucked it up. I mean these guys struggle to cook basic shit like pasta and make burgers... one guy sent out a plate of chicken which was clearly uncooked (very dangerous).

How do they select people for this show? Do they purposely select contestants who were voted most useless in the kitchen by their co-workers/employers? Most of them seem completely and utterly incompetent. I've never worked in a kitchen like that, but surely if you were a chef you would have cooked alot of pasta and made alot of burgers, so surely the added pressure of being on tv wouldnt be sufficient to cause someone with reasonable skills to screw it up to such a degree.

Maybe they require idiots as contestants... because it probably wouldnt be as entertaining if everyone wasnt incompetent and chef didnt flip out all the time.

Clip art

We're hosting my brother in law's engagement party, and I found a lovely piece of clip art that would do really well as the background for the invite. It looks like antique stationary. Is there a way to write on top of clip art/layer it with text on top of it or is it impossible?


I don't know my flatmate well at all. He tends to make food and then leave the dirty dishes sitting in the kitchen for two days. This is not good. It's already started attracting insects and as the weather gets warmer it's going to get worse. It would be so easy for him to just rinse off the stuff and throw it in the dishwasher, but he doesn't even do that.

Is there a nice way to tell him to clean up after himself without seeming like a control freak?

You can either go camping/go explore the state you're college is in (and since you're a freshman you have never explored Washington State, full of trails and cool things) 


you can fly home (which you really should be doing because you are very stressed, need to catch up on work, see family, get sleep, stop getting sick...except not many friends will be there.) 

Fun explorations with new friends OR relaxation and catching up on school work so you don't fail?

Treats for the Sweets

Dear TQC,
I am going into the hospital tomorrow afternoon to have a baby! My husband and I have spent a lot of time at the hospital lately because of complications and we love the nursing staff and my awesome doctors. We want to bring something with us to make nice and show how much we appreciate what they'll be doing for us over the next couple of days.

What should we bring? We live near a bagel shop that makes the best home-made bagels and cream cheeses but it will be afternoon when we get there so maybe it's not quite the right time of day for that. We also live near a bakery which has all sorts of treats. Should we bring a Birth-Day cake or pie or just a bunch of little goodies and let them choose for themselves?

If you were a labor & delivery nurse, would you be extra nice to me if I brought you treats?

What is an underrated city?

What would you do if your son was at home, crying all alone the bedroom floor cuz he's hungry, and the only way to feed him is to sleep with a man for a little bit of money?

How likely is it that my laptop, with a warranty through 2011, will be replaced by Dell if I bitch at them long enough and threaten them with "taking my business to Apple" remarks? Any tips on how to get them to cave and replace it? (The damn thing needs everything replaced anyway - it would be cheaper for them to give me a new one).

Yay presents

So my fiance and I are working on putting together our list o goodies for the registry. We know about all the basics like sheets, towels, dishes, yadda yadda, but I'm trying to think of less common stuff. Like I found this crazy awesome looking toaster oven with bricks built into the sides for more even cooking, it's fancier than a lot of full size ovens I've seen, lol.

What crazy awesome, kinda pricy (like anything over 100 bucks basically) things should we register for?

And are Dyson vacuums worth the big bucks?? We'd get the Animal one (no pets currently but let's be honest, as a girl I shed a ton of hair, and I'm sure we'll have pets someday) but it's like 500 dollah which is insane. And how about the Roomba? I think they're really cool but don't know how well they work, but I think they'd be nice for vacuuming more often minus the hassle of dragging around a huge vacuum all over the house.

I got Fable 2 for my Xbox 360 and it looked awesome. But it keeps freezing. I did get around 20 mins of play there before it froze again but it's getting tiresome.

Anyone know of any cure?

When you get homework over the weekend, do you:

a) Do it Friday after school, so that you have two full school-free days

b) Do it on Sunday so that you can enjoy your Friday, and so you can get back into school-mode

c) Do something else?
