I had this dream last night in which my cat fell off the chair and it was funny. So funny in fact that I laughed in my dream. Then the sound of my laughter woke me up. It went on that I was laughing so hard and shaking so hard my boyfriend woke up and asked if I was okay.
I then told him about the dream and said 'You should've seen it! It was hilarious' and laughed a bit more.
What's the last thing you did that made you irl lol?
okay i just orderd a bunch of stuff online and one of these items only had 1 left in stock. when i got to the payment confirmation page, i also got a page saying basically that they didn't have enough items in stock to meet my order and had reset my cart so the only stuff in there was what they had in stock. since carts normally empty after your place an order and my cart was still full, i figured the order hadn't gone through. i went back and replaced the piece it said was out of stock, then placed my order. of course i later find out that i've just made two orders. : /
i think it's basically their fault since i didn't get the confirmation email for a while (longer than it normally is on this site) and also because the cart didn't empty (when it has after EVERY other time i've placed an order). i don't want to just cancel my order because there's a restocking fee, which i feel i shouldn't have to pay. so: WHAT SHOULD I DO?
teal deer: i accidentally placed an order twice becase i didn't get a confirmation email and my cart didn't empty like it should, and cancelling one of the orders will result in a restocking fee. what do i do?
edit: I R ARTICULATE. i already emailed them. what i meant to ask is do you think any of it is their fault? do you think i stand a chance at getting the fee taken off? do you think it's a little confusing that my cart never got emptied?
Does anyone know if I can return a opened, defective ipod touch to Target and get a full refund if I have the receipt? I bought my sis one for her birthday 2 weeks ago and now the stupid thing won't open or download any apps. I have tried restores and nada. Thankssss!
I'm reading Servant of the Bones by Anne Rice and I really need help understanding a line. It says, "So that was the end of the plan, except that the immortal widow of the immortal man who had survived the flood took pity on him."
Dear TQC, how in the world can an immortal man have a widow? I'm so confused...
For those of you that don't care, what is the weather like in your city right now? Where do you live? I'm in Colorado Springs, Colorado, it's 38 feels like 26 degrees and windy.
Edit: Here's some more context from the book since some of you asked.
The character is telling the story of Gilgamesh. "It ended the same way as your modern versions. Gilgamesh couldn't resign himself that Enkido could die. Enkido did die, too, though I don't remember quite why. Gilgamesh acted as if he'd never seen anybody die before, and he went to the immortal who had survived the great flood. The great flood. Your flood. Our flood. Everyone's flood. With us it was Noah and his sons. With them it was an immortal who lived in the land of Dilmun in the sea. He was the great survivor of the flood. And off to see him, to get immortality, goes this genius Gilgamesh. And that ancient one - who would be the Hebrew Noah for your people - says what? 'Gilgamesh, if you can stay awake for seven days and nights, you can be immortal.' "And what happens? Gilgamesh instantly fell asleep. Instantly! He didn't even wait a day! A night. He keeled over! Smash. Asleep. So that was the end of the plan, except that the immortal widow of the immortal man who survived the great flood took pity on him, and they told Gilgamesh that if he tied stones to his feet and sank down in the sea he could find a plant that, once eaten, gives you eternal youth. Well, I think they were trying to drown the man!"
What movie really disappointed you after watching?
<< Most recent movie that did so was the Twin Peaks movie: Fire Walk With Me. I have gotten into watching the episodes, and I decided to watch the movie, and it made absolutely no sense, even after understanding the story.
Anyone play Endless Forest? Samorost? Eyes Maze? Know of any similar ones you'd care to share? What do you think of these games? Has anyone made icons or fanart of games they play and would share here?
I can tell you how awesome you are... REALLY SUPER AWESOME for convincing me to go to the pancake party last night! Among other things, I ended up getting to see my sister when she and her college friends drove an hour and a half to my campus for our Gumby's pizza!
What are your plans for the day?
I'm going to maybe do some laundry, and watch Star Wars and maybe Girl With a Pearl Earring and maybe some 30 Rock or X-Files. Aaaand possibly do dinner and a movie with a friend. Saturdays are awesome!
I am creating a unit plan on the American Civil War (8th grade), and in my unit plan, we have a portion where we explain how it is relevant to our students. I am stumped on how I explain it's relevancy to my students, I know it is important to know about the war and etc., but that's not a good enough explanation to a 14 year old kid who cares more about TI than Abe Lincoln. HELP!
Does anyone know of a finance community on here? I seriously can not warp my head around this stuff, and even looking at bankrate.com and all those type sites are making me even more confused than ever. It'd be awesome to find some place where I can ask all my questions and they can put it in really simple stupid terms so mu dumb head can get it. My family doesn't know much about it either, so I can't ask them.
Is there a such thing as being too nice (of a friend)? (Someone who never judges you no matter what your wrong-doings are, giving gifts without expecting anything in return, always being forgiving, being honest, etc)
What qualities do you think makes someone good friend?
To your knowledge, is Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome and the most common consequence- infertility- curable? (I looked on Wikipedia but it's being a bit vague about treatments etc, partially because there's so many different potential treatments but none conclusive...)
We're working on my uncle/aunts new house & I've been given the task to make dinner. I'm grilling steak. I did a dry rub on the steak-- should I put it back in the fridge or leave it out til 5? (Its 2-- so 3hrs)? & do u cook steak on lo med or high? Tips?
I need to make a unit plan (14 or so lessons) for middle school or high school English classes. I was thinking of doing "Acceptance" as a theme. There would be poetry and short stories about different cultures as well as people living with disabilities.
Do the two topics work with a theme of "acceptance"? Or should I consider it something else? Did you ever read a poem or short story about either topic that really stuck with you?
The other day I realized even though I am a natural girl, if I were to ever have been a drag queen, I'd want my stage name to be Scarlett Fever. What would/is your drag name be?
Yesterday, rocking out in my car, I came to know that I NEED to have a Queen song played at my funeral. I was thinking of Who Wants to Live Forever for the lulz, but haven't decided. What song do you want played at yours?
If you feel like looking over the rest of the site, my requirements are under 1100E/month (I would prefer around 950E/month), a bed, and internet access. It must be availible the month of July. Also, the more centralized the location the better.
Do you think it's okay that my boyfriend is considering giving away our fish and getting rid of the tanks when I have fish in there as well?
On the one hand, he bought them for me and is the one who maintains the tank. I don't do anything. On the other hand, I feel really sad about losing Kurt and Goldie. And I think my opinion should count.
You're going to the toilet and you think you're going to be in there for a long time? Do you take a book/newspaper to read, a DS to play perhaps or is this kind of thing just totally unhygienic to you and you sit there throughout the session?
Personally I just keep a book in the bathroom for this purpose.
My husband and I have a vivarium with frogs and on the bottom front, there is a small body of water where a small fish lives. We've had this vivarium for a year and a half and we recently discovered something new. Something *alive* grew inside of it. My husband first saw it on the floor but it moved to the top of the water and he has seen a few of these but they're too small for us to see regularly.
So I live in DC, it's absolutely gorgeous outside, and I want to go out. But all the museums and the zoo and whatnot will close in the next two hours (it takes me at least 45 minutes to get anywhere). What should I do? Also, I have no friends and don't want to spend a ton of money.
I'm in a dilemma and I really need help. So last week, my normal hair color was light brown. I dyed my hair dark brown, but it came out black. I hate it. In an attempt to get it back to light brown, I dyed a light brown color over the black. It didn't work. Now I am wondering if I should just buy a kit to bleach out the black. Then it would leave it sort of orange, so I would have to buy a light brown to dye over it again. Would that work? Or would it still be kind of orange? Is there another alternative? Would it be cheaper just to go to a salon and have them do whatever they want to do? I just want my natural light brown hair color back...
Hey American TQCers, preferably on the east coast. Do you know any colleges/universities that offer degrees in American Sign Language? If so, please tell me the name, location, and if you can a little bit about the area and its people.
Your 90 year old father falls and breaks his hip. Prior to this happening you prayed to some angel asking to keep him safe asked some angel to pray to keep him safe. Your born again christian friend says "You'll hate me for saying this but it wouldn't have happened if you hadn't prayed to an angel." They use the name of the specific angel, I just can't remember it. Days go by and this person does not call to apolgize or find out how your father is doing.
Would that be the end of your friendship?
Why the fuck would someone think that was an okay thing to say?
Edit: This is about my aunt, her friend is the jerkface.
Where do you do your best thinking (self-reflection, problem solving, philosophizing, etc)? I do it in the shower or during my first two hours at work when I do mindless jobs on the kubota or drive around the zoo in the dark.
stipulations? 1. it needs to be fairly easy to mail 2. no clothes, i'm not even going to try finding something she likes 3. no garden things like i was originally going to get her as per my father's suggestions, because he called me 9:30 this morning to say he decided HE was going to get that for her.
1. i got a mild sunburn today on both arms. i put a cold, damp washcloth on them for around 15 minutes each, i think. and before i go to sleep i'm going to put that blue aloe vera stuff on. if i keep doing that, how long will it take for the sunburn to go away?
2. i'm 90% sure i'm getting a iPod Touch for my birthday. what apps do you think are a necessity? i don't live a big city so i don't need the Taxi one that's in the iPhone commercials, or anything like that.
Some of my friends are at a play and I want to meet up with them after it's over. The play started at 8, it's 9:40 now. When would be a good time to call someone? I don't want to call while the play is still going on in case whoever I call didn't think to silence their phone.
What do you do when you're interested in a person who you only know as an employee of a place your frequent (IE a hot barista at your local coffee shop or a cute bagger at your grocer)?
For those who have never had that problem, if you use the Super Pets app on Facebook and/or MySpace, which animal do you have? Should I spend the 10,000 coins I saved up on buying a cactus or something else?
I have to work with my manager every day next week. She's not usually scheduled at the same times as I am, but this week is all fuckdified and it's going to be unreasonably difficult. She's not a bad person, and she's a good worker, but when she needs to offer correction or instruction she does it in a really passive-aggressive way, and she makes me really nervous because of the way she watches me when I'm completing tasks. I am not the only one who feels this way. Avoiding her is not possible due to constant proximity and interaction/communication. Besides the maxim, "Remember - shit sandwich, tastes good," - I'm very skilled at smiling, nodding, and thanking her for whatever passive-aggressive 'friendly' criticism she decides to hand me - what advice can you offer for making it through next week without melting down emotionally?
Supposedly, TQC, everyone has a "list" of 5 people they could cheat on their SO? with, without penalty. Do you and your SO have this? Do you think that if you ever did encounter one of your five and pursued it, would your SO truly forgive and forget, or would it break down your relationship? What if the situation was reversed, and your SO pursued one of their five? Could you just let it go?
Who is/would be on your top five list? Richie Sambora, Gerard Butler, Kevin Costner, Matthew Lawrence, and Robert Redford
Aside from your list of five, who are some celebrities that you find physically attractive? Diane Lane, Juliette Binoche, and Adriana Lima all have features I adore
