Favorite classic Disney movie? I can't decide between Mulan and Hercules.
I'm watching Mulan right now. Is it wrong of me to be in love with Li Shang?

Why am I eating so much tonight? In the last two hours, I've had a whole tear and share pack of peanut M&Ms, some ice cream, a bag of kettle corn, and I plan on digging into the Crispix by the handful next.

ETA: Perhaps classic isn't the right word. I don't know what word I'm looking for, but I meant basically any Disney movies that aren't entirely CG.

i work 10:30 to 2:30 tomorrow. i teach music, so i have a lot of downtime between lessons on saturdays. especially tomorrow, because kids are going to be out of town.

recently my boss has been on the warpath with anything i do, but if i'm busy he won't bother me. tqc, can you give me important-looking things to do tomorrow? forms to fill out or other kinds of paperwork are fantastic. i have a special ed book i'm bringing with me and i can fake taking notes out of that if i have to as well.

I have a sort of bump/knot at the top of my mouth...but its not one of those that you usually get.

It feels just like a bone only its a little softer and is right next to a bone at the top of my mouth.
It's about the size of the tip of your finger.
It's sore, but only when I press on it.

It came up overnight, and feels like a knot you may get when you bang your knee on something, but I don't recall hitting it on anything...

Any idea what it could be?
The medical websites helped me none.

Hey TQC,

I'm being recruited by Southwestern for the sales internship thing; where you work 80 hours a week, six days a week selling books essentially. Would you take the position, having heard both good and bad about the company?

(Good: www.southwestern.com, Bad: www.southwesterncompanytruth.com)

(For the record, obviously I'm going to make this decision based on way more than just what the internet thinks, but I can at least keep answers here in mind.)

Second date?

Which of these people would you sooner have a second date with? Assume they're all cute and you get along equally

Last 2 exes broke his/her heart. Still isn't over either one of them and is very sensitive to talk about either one, even though it's been 3 years. Each one has complained about being suffocated, and something about 'overly clingy'
Two of his/her last 5 exes died from eating poison mushrooms within 6 months of dating
'Rush Limbaugh is like a prophet and everything he says is the truth! And Bill O'Reilly can say no wrong! And Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert are going straight to hell. You agree, right?"
'Wanna go back to my place later and watch COPS? I love that show. I have every season on DVD. It's like the only thing I really watch. Everything else is boring'
'Just so you know, I'm really into butt sex. By the third date, if I'm not in there, this relationship just isn't working out'
'Oh, I don't really work. I'm a drug dealer. Yeah, totally true. It's just more fun and I get to stay high a lot. All I gotta do is drive around the junior high schools until someone approaches me wanting to buy. So easy'
'I have herpes, but I take every precaution so I probably won't spread it, should we become physically active'
'I have to tell you up front that I have a small penis. Yeah, it's the size of my pinkie. It's embarrassing, but I feel that it's less painful if I tell you up front then to have you laugh at me in the bedroom later'
'I'm a single parent of 4 beautiful children, ages 3-8. I have sole custody. My ex wanted no part of being a parent'
'I used to weigh 400 lbs, but I've worked hard to take it off this time. I have to admit, I seesaw a lot with my weight. When I fall off the wagon, I can put on 100 lbs in like a few months'
'Do you like football? I love football. It's like my only hobby. Yeah....so......um....what do you like best about football?'
'So...what's your opinion on the furries? Oh, I dabble here and there. I wouldn't say I'm obsessed with it, but I do own 4 fur suits. I have one in the trunk of my car. Wanna try it on'
'It's not fair. Live a normal life your whole life, but found with child pornography on your computer once and you're a sexual offender for life'
'I'm obsessed with Twilight. I saw it 25 times in the theatre and I waited in line for an hour to get the DVD signed. I've never read the books. I hate reading'
'Wanna go see the Hannah Montana movie after this? It's good. I've seen it 3 times this weekend so far'

At your high school, was there any teacher-student ~inappropriateness?

Last week there was a rumor circulating at my school that a (much-hated) teacher was fired because of stuff with a junior girl - "flirtatious emails" that she reciprocated - apparently they actually were "best friends" and emailed each other a lot, possibly no "flirtatiousness" involved.  Meh, small schools.

Have you ever had to part with a piercing? What piercing was it? How did you feel about it? Why did you have to take it out?

I have a 2 year old vertical labret that I'm going to be getting rid of soon. I'm actually really sad about this, haha. I've taken it out before (for surgery last year), but got it repierced ASAP. Except now I'm having surgery again in a month and I'm going to be job hunting. My tattoo sleeve already makes me look weird enough, so I'm trying to eliminate other things :(

I've got an old tshirt that a very good friend gave me years ago and years ago. It's not a tshirt I'd wear again (it doesn't fit anyways!) but I don't want to throw it out or keep it in a drawer all the time. Any  suggestions on what I can do with it?

My Mum is in hospital just now, long story short her smoking is making her unwell...she has problems breathing. She's 63 and has been smoking since she was 18 so I appreciate it's not easy for her. She's living with me in my house. I'm a non smoker so I really don't like being around it anyways. So, she's been smoking in her room for the past year. However I want to ask her to only smoke outside. It'll help her cut down a bit as she'll have to actually move to have a cigarette and, more than anything, I'd like my house back to a nonsmoking one. However she's very stubborn and won't take this well. Any suggestions on how I go about saying to her to smoke outside?

Later tonight I have the option to hang out with an ex-boyfriend from a while ago.  It is pretty much implied that we'll be hooking up/fooling around.  However, he has screwed me over a couple of times so I'm hesitant that I'll get hooked on him again.  I'm 99.9% positive I won't, but there's always that chance.

So, TQC, should I take the chance and have fun or play it safe?

What do you do when you outgrow your friends?  Do you continue to hang out with them, bite your tongue, and hope they catch up?  Or do you let them know that you two need a break? 

I have a friend I've outgrown.  I sent her a message a while ago to say that I needed a break because the foundation of our friendship is based on people we no longer are (I seriously worded it like that.  I was feeling pretentious at the time). She hasn't responded, and doesn't seem to care.  This kind of proved my whole theory that we're only friends because it's convenient to be  -- all of my other friends live in other states, and all of her friends abandoned her after high school.  So what do I do, TQC?  Do I go back, tail between my legs, and say I'm sorry for breaking the unwritten rule of our friendship, which is that you don't question it?  Or should I be happy she's out of my life?

I have a feeling I'm going to be flamed with a bunch of "MAKE NEW FRIENDS!"  If it were that easy, I would.

I'm away at school and just got a new job that doesn't do direct deposit. There aren't any branches of the bank to which I belong in the area. Is it possible to use another bank or their ATM to put the money into my account? I've never done that before and everyone I ask says they don't know. And I really fail at googling.

How do you place your hands on the wheel when you drive?
