1. who was your worst teacher in your educational career? what made them so bad?

mclaughlin - middle school history teacher. he was anti-everything and had a holier than thou attitude. i got kicked out of class one day for saying that gays had rights too. my mom pulled me out of his class and i ended up having history class with the school librarian instead.

2. what's really annoying you right now?

my equine science instructor promised that he would have our grades posted and the new assignment up last friday. it's been over a week and my grades aren't posted and there's no new assignment up. he never gets shit done when he says he's going to. i know he's busy and teaches quite a few classes but he does this all the time and seriously, don't tell us we have a new assignment until after you've posted it. the assignment's supposed to be due on the 27th and i really wanted to get it done over spring break so i didn't have to worry about it this coming week.  

3. do you have a vanity plate on your vehicle? if you don't, what would yours say?

the vanity plate on my truck says gitrdn - yep... git er done. my mom's says icmoose. my old one was cwgrlup and hers used to be mjruns. we kind of have a fascination with vanity plates, i guess. lol

Dr. TQC, I needs your help.

I've thrown up quite a few times in the past two weeks and been nauseous everyday. I've had really bad headaches right behind my eyes and a very small appetite. I'm also sleeping a lot more.

Custom Poster - Flight of the Conchords follow-up question

Hey. So, I asked a question a while ago about where to buy the New Zealand posters Murray has in his office in the TV show, Flight of the Conchords. I got some pretty helpful answers, which led me to try to create a custom one on So, I've made some headway, but now I'm stuck because I've ran into some trouble. I was hoping that I could maybe get some more advice out of you all. My question is kind of detailed so it's under the cut...

So, TQC, today is my first day of quitting smoking. I'm quitting for health and social reasons, but also because next month cigarettes will be over $6 a pack! I generally smoke A LOT, up to a pack a day... but if there are days where I can't smoke for hours and hours at a time, I rarely ever start to crave a cigarette... but no matter what, when I get in my car I have the urge to smoke. Driving and smoking go hand in hand for me, and I can't not drive my car while I'm quitting!

So what are some things I can do to keep my hands and stuff busy and distracted while still being a safe driver?

I'm going back to school today (2 hour drive), and someone asked me if I can drive her back with me.

How should I tell her I don't want to drive her without sounding like a huge asshole?

I'm going on a work trip and I get something like $60 a day to spend on myself, and since all our meals are covered I basically have nothing to spend this on. The hotel has a bar with "cheap drinks". I have no idea if this means only beer (because it's accommodating students), but if they happen to serve mixed drinks I'd like to try some new ones.

What would you suggest I try? My usual drink is gin and some kind of flavored soda, if that gives you a guideline as to what I like. I haven't ventured much farther than that because I hate spending so much money on one drink, but now I can go crazy!

cant decide..

im starting to get a pretty fucking bad case of the blues(lasting more than 2 weeks now) and getting worse. No improvement so far.
I know its not full-blown depression yet having suffered from it for many years but this is a really important year for me academically lots of very important exams etc etc etc!!

anyway i cant decide if i should go to my doc and/or psych about going back on prozac asap?

I have only been on prozac once before(for a year) and havent been back on it since (almost 3 years) now so if anyone is a frequent on again off again user would you recommend going on it early or waiting and seeing if my situation improves or turns even more to shit???

So I had to uninstall/reinstall itunes last night because the universe hates me. I lost about 400 songs in the process and all my playlists.

The only way to fight off the rage and depression that this has bought about is to make new and improved lists (I reaaalllyyy like playlists).

Would you please come up with an awesome playlist title and recommend a song you'd put in in?

Titles that have been lost to the fates included things like; I'm drinking beer in the shower, is this a sugar rush?, dance naked! and other ridiculously stupid shit.

Mine: Random Drunk Guy by Point Defiance
At about 2 AM this morning you and your friends were making some serious noise outside my apartment, I opened the door and there you were. You asked if I was home alone. I lied, I just didn't know what to say. Email me if you still wanna drink some beers and hook up.

(Wow, what a catch!)

let's play pretend

imagine this plz, TQC.

you've been dating your SO for a year. you have a no present rule. on your anniversary, your SO brings you a gift of perfume. you never wear perfume. your SO looks at you expectantly.

how do you react?

also, your SO's mother happened to give you a bottle of the same perfume for your birthday a few months ago (something your SO didn't realise), so now you have two unused bottles of this stuff.

does this change your reaction?

Hey TQC, will you recommend me some good non-english music? Preferably rock, but I'll take anything so long as it's interesting (and not jpop/jrock/kpop/krock because I have plenty of all of that already).

I've been really into El Sueño de Morfeo for a while, and discovered the awesome Finnish band Happoradio last night. Anybody stylistically similar to either of these would be pretty awesome.

How about guitarists? Anyone you particularly like or have been into lately? (Joe Satriani has been a favorite of mine for years.)

If you're not up for that, what music have you been really into lately? Have you ever ended up liking a genre of music you'd always thought you hate? (Opera, for me. Despised it as a kid and converted into a lover after seeing Turandot on stage.)

While we're on the topic of music, is American Idol any good this season? I was obsessed last year, but this time around I haven't been able to muster the time or care.

I bought a package of pre-made Trader Joe's wheat pizza dough on Feb 16th and promptly forgot about it and it's been sealed in its plastic bag in the refrigerator ever since. I've now opened it and it doesn't really smell bad but there's like a small amount of greasy brown liquid inside the bag and I'm guessing it's probably gone bad, but there is no expiration/"use by" date anywhere on the bag and I don't want to throw it away if there's a chance it's still okay / I really want pizza.


ETA: There are no egg or dairy ingredients in the dough! It contains: unbleached wheat flour, whole wheat flour, filtered water, canola olive oil blend, sea and fresh yeast.

What would you do if your husband/wife/SO got pregnant/got someone else pregnant outside of your relationship?

In this hypothetical scenario, the person who's pregnant is definitely having the baby.

ETA: I have a very good friend whose father cheated on his mother and got the woman pregnant. The woman had the baby and my friend's mother stayed married to my friend's dad. The kid and my friend are both around 25 years of age now and hang out with my friend's dad all the time (go to soccer games, play basketball etc). My friend has some questionable views on fidelity (hence why he is just my friend). Do you think his family history is a big reason for this? This may be a dumb question but I'm curious about other people's opinions.

Will you make suggestions for my next tattoo?

I had an ectopic pregnancy in 2004 and got a small, simple angel on the inside of my left wrist to honor my baby. I had a miscarriage in October of last year and want something to honor that baby. Part of me wants to get an angel on my right wrist, but I'm not sure... if I have another pregnancy loss, I'll have run out of wrists... I don't want to wrap around or anything. Maybe another angel on my left wrist, under the first one... I'm thinking my wrist will start to look like the cell walls of an imprisoned serial killer. Maybe something else altogether?

I'm trying to get suggestions from everyone. Please help, tqc?

ETA: thanks for your condolences!

What's your earliest memory? How old were you at the time?
Mine was being breastfed by my mother in our loungeroom. I don't know how old I was, but presumably I was quite young.

Have you ever 'forgotten' a period of time? Like not just forgotten to get milk from the shops or anything, but lost a period of time that you have no recollection of? Why/how? Did you ever find out what you missed?*
Aside from portions of random nights being erased due to extreme drunkeness; the biggest period of time I can think of was when I got a concussion in primary school. I don't remember how it happened (I think it had to do with me playing on a big concrete clown in our schoolyard), I don't remember who I told about it, and I don't remember my parents coming to get me and taking me to the hospital, where I spent the night. I do remember, however, that the clown was removed shortly after this happened.

*This entire question is very awkwardly phrased, sorry.

I was trying to do a nice thing and rake the side yard while my husband is at work. I found my feet covered in ants (I noticed this because I realized my feet felt like George Washington once held them in a jar of acid... at a party). I ran away from where I was standing, throwing my shoes aside. I calmed down for a minute and went inside to wash my feet in cold water (shoes too!). As a precaution, since I was too terrified to notice the type of ants, I took 2 Benadryl. Now I feel super loopy and weird and have had to retype like every third word at least four times each.

 What's one event that changed who you are, for better or worse?  It could be a relationship, a summer, meeting someone, losing someone -- anything.  Talk about one bad and one good, if you have.

I wasn't going to mention mine because I didn't want to be depressing, but CLEARLY TQC is not a place for happy people.  :p

My last significant relationship.  We were always best friends, but we got closer because she started to come to me more about her boyfriend problems.  Basically, he beat the shit out of her emotionally and called her fat.  She came to me, and we rekindled whatever romantic feelings we had for each other, and she cheated on him with me.  Months later, they broke up, and we were moving in together in college.  I was like, SWEET, now we'll be together!  Only we weren't.  About a month later, she found someone else, and I got more and more depressed, sought counseling, tried to kill myself, and then just dropped out of the college altogether because I'd realized that, for the last two years, I was only going there because of her; I hated the college and everyone in there.

So...yeah.  :)

My boyfriend is lazy and picky and lives in student accommodation, and literally lives on cereal and chocolate. I asked if he'd eat things I made, and the answer was a very emphatic yes, but he's offered no suggestion about what he would eat beyond casseroles. Also, he got mugged on the weekend and is a slight cripple at the moment so I volunteered to do his grocery shopping, and his list is "Bread, cereal, milk, chocolate, nibbles". I want to buy him some stuff he will eat but also has slightly more nutritional content than what he eats now, my mothering instincts are going crazy.

So guys, if you are a student and feed yourself, or have a friend/significant other/whatever who does, what the shit am I meant to feed this motherfucker?
Recipes, tricks for making him eat even marginally more healthy stuff, ANYTHING would be super appreciated.

He doesn't like instant noodles or seafood, and flatly refuses to cook anything beyond heating it up or microwaving. Probably won't eat vegetables just as is. Not much of a fruit fan. He's useless. I was thinking maybe just making huge amounts of pasta and sauce and freezing it, but that gets boring pretty fast. Also nothing too complex recipe-wise please, I suck pretty hardcore in the kitchen, but I am very enthusiastic.

Alternatively, have you ever been mugged? Did you get robbed or beaten up or both? Was it traumatizing or just shitty? I've never even been threateningly approached by  a stranger, let alone attacked. I must look either intimidating or really, really poor.

If you're going on a trip - do you make a packing list? Does it depend on what kind of trip you're going on (camping, vacation, business, etc.)?

I rodeo every weekend and I have three seperate packing lists - my suitcase, the horse trailer, the truck. It's the same list every weekend and I keep it in a plastic sleeve and use dry-erase markers on it.

How far in advance do you pack?

My mom's making fun of me because I packed my clothes for this coming weekend's rodeo already. My logic is that we're leaving Thursday evening after classes and I have practice til ten on Monday and Wednesday and class til nine-thirty on Tuesday. I don't really want to stress about packing my clothes during the week.

I have to pull another all-nighter tonight (I pulled one last night...) - my roommate doesn't have a vehicle and I have to pick him up from work at 230 am. Unfortunately, I have class at 8 am tomorrow morning and I know I'll oversleep if I try to nap now or even after I pick him up. What should I do to keep myself awake all night/morning??

How many pairs of shoes do you own? Can I see a picture of your favorite pair?

Are you smart?

Let's say you were driving around one day and happened to see a close friend's mother/brother/father/sister driving on the same road. You end up behind them and notice they're driving rather erratically and weaving all over the road. You tell your friend and they kind of laugh it off.

Bring it up again or let it go?

I am planning on going to South America in May/June. I went to a travel agent Friday and she was going to muddle through my preferred itinerary to try and figure out the best flights for me (I am new to all this...)

My problem is that I have a 10% discount voucher for a tour company I want to go with, and would like to book date NOW as it expires today.

Is it a totally bad idea to book a tour before I've even got flights?? The travel agent looked dubious the whole time I was with her on Friday because it's peak season etc and it is quite close to my departure date.

Should I book, and use the discount? Or wait, and pay full price? Suggestions?


So would you say that necrophilia is kind of ok as long as the family of the deceased doesn't find out? I mean... it's just a vessel, the soul is gone and all, amirite?

Let's say you get into a big argument with a friend. The friend is pretty mad at you, but makes you a cake for your birthday. You open the box, and the cake says "FUCK YOU" in big letters. What do you do with the cake?

Tomorrow, I am doing a sponsored jailbreak. That is, I have no more than £10 I can spend on anything, and I have to get as far as I can from the University of Leeds, being sponsored per mile, in aid of Amnesty International. It stands to be exciting. If I can stay somewhere without paying, I can then still be in the game for another day, whereas I'll be over the £10 as soon as I have to pay for accommodation otherwise.

So therefore, are there any members anywhere in the fine country of Wales, or anywhere vaguely nearby, that can help me out by giving me a floor/couch on which to stay?

There are several lj users that have met me irl that can vouch for me being really a really rather nice person, including the wonderful japeningrish, who advised me to check here.

And what this means if someone can do this for me, is that I can keep going further and raising more money for Amnesty International, who I'm supporting!

Also, a few days on you'll see the whole thing posted on adayinmylife, so if you watch that community, that will be me. :)

Much love, TQC!
