Decide what I should do with my life next year? Should I stay home and teach homeschool kids Italian? Or should I leave home entirely and do something stupid like travel or get a job somewhere far away?
And in general, how are you doing tonight, TQC? I'm bored.
When you cry for a while, does it make your cheeks/the rest of your face feel sticky or stiff or something? I feel like this is a weird and probably dumb question because of the stuff that's in tears, like the sodium and glucose and things, they'd interact with your skin and could make it feel weird, right? idk I'm tired and ~*emotionally drained*~, sorry if this is dumb.
ADDITIONALLY Do you regularly put pepper on your food? I've always been a salt-only kind of person.
A few days ago I was eating something and it felt like a bit of it went in my nose. I blew my nose and a tiny piece of cheese came out the right side. Today the right side of the back of my throat and roof of my mouth hurt. The left side was normal temperature and the right side was definitely warmer. It feels like I have half a sinus infection. I did a sinus rinse right away and now it feels a little better. Should I go to the doctor immediately? Do another sinus rinse later and see how I feel tomorrow? Something else? I just dread going to the doctor more than anything so if it's avoidable I'd like to avoid it.
What about Pride and Prejudice specifically? I'm talking about the book, not any of the movie versions. (Although if you were influenced in your opinion by, say, Colin Firth, do tell me.)
I'm an English ed major and I'm passably fond of P&P but I know hardly anyone who will confess a love for Austen. It seems to be popular now to dislike her. Hopefully I am living in a bubble, but either way, I'm sure that you, dear TQCers, will give me a better picture of things.
I was at 7-11 the other day, and saw a woman who looked a LOT like Dog the Bounty Hunter's wife. I didn't say anything to her, because I'm afraid of looking like a dumbass. I found out that afternoon, they are in my city filming an episode, so chances are actually pretty high it really was her.
TQC, what would you do if you thought you saw a celebrity, but you're not sure? Am I the only one afraid of looking stupid?
Do you think $70/month is good or bad for a phone service plan? I would have unlimited texting, 900 minutes/month, and free calls to my five favorite people. I added roadside assistance and the extended warranty as well. I get a 17% discount with Verizon for working with Regal Entertainment Group, so I'm pretty attached to them.
If you don't think that's a good deal, what carrier do you use, and do you like them? How much do you pay a month?
Sprint is also an option because I also get a discount there, but I like Verizon.
this morning i got up to fill up my water bottle and all of a sudden i felt like i was gonna throw up and shit at the same time. then i like went blind. I COULD NOT SEE ANYTHING and my eyes were open. then i could not walk. i was just stumbling everywhere blindly. then i got wicked cold and started sweating and my joints were really stiff. i think i kinda blacked out for a minute because i dont remember going to sit on the bathroom floor.
what just happened to me?!?
why is my font doing weird things? and why arent you outside?
I need to cut my expenses. What's the cheapest cell-phone plan out there? Or, even better, which one provides the best combination of price + value?
(ETA: I'm doing prepaid at the moment, but it's getting to be too expensive. Job hunting + family stuff going on = making a lot of calls at the moment. I just need something that gives me as many anytime minutes as possible for a decent price.)
Your daughter is about to go get breakfast with her uncle. He is angry about something and tells you to "watch the 6 o'clock news tonight." You don't let him take your daughter, do you? What kind of person would?!
It's about this story I heard on the radio earlier. On the radio they made it sound like he told them to watch the news before he took her, but in the articles I've found they don't make it clear.
So my sister and her friends made these speech-bubble-face-stick things (mostly my sister's work, so she gets to keep them) for their classmates to use when they do the usual school class photo thing. She won't let me use them for my own shoots, so I have to make my own. I don't want to repeat any of them, though. TQC, can you suggest some emoticons I can use on them?
Anyone think this is cheating or at least sketchy? The synopsis of the situation is you are dating someone, guy in this case for me, and they end up sleeping at a hotel room drunk with their male cousin and your female friend?
What do you do when you're making something for a client/someone/whoever and they're requsting something truly awful that goes way beyond bad taste? Imagine it's not that you don't like it personally, but it's really pretty awful.
Do you: a) take their money and do whatever they're asking, and put your work out there for the whole world to see b) try to talk them out of it completely with sound arguments c) try to compromise d) don't do it, forget the money, and save yourself from the shame e) something else (clarify)
Darling TQC, how do I inform my friend that I am socially inept, and therefore, she should not try and force me to hook her up with some guy she and I barely know?
If that wording was weird, she's telling me to call some guy so that I can hook her up. The best I've ever done is scare people away with my incredible lack of social skills. How do I get this point across?
If you don't care, why is the wind coming through my window so musical?
What's a great inside joke you have with your boyfriend/girlfriend/best friend?
I was being snarky and informed my boyfriend he was packing 6 inches, and that it was a compliment. In fact, he's at least 3 inches longer. So now, just out of the blue, we'll look at each other and go 'six inches!' with our fingers about an inch apart.
I picked up a really cool glass at a flea market but it's filled about a third of the way with wax, as though somebody had used it to hold a candle at some point. What's the best way to get the wax out? It's not really large enough to reach in and just scrape out.
I got an email from a classmate asking for a metric butt-load of my notes. I helped him out once in the past when he missed a lecture for a legit reason. The notes he's asking for this time include a lecture that is available online so even though he missed class he could watch it himself whenever he wants, and the other material is for classes he attended and could have taken notes himself. I'm pretty annoyed because while I'm happy to help people out, he's pretty much asking me to do his work for him.
Should I just ignore the email or should I respond telling him why I'm not going to help him? How do I gently point out that he's being lazy, and should do his own work?
i was working in an art class room two days ago and after ten minutes of being there, a girl came in and told me that there were tables covered in wet resin and that the room was highly toxic. so, i left and worked out in the hallway about 10 feet away from the room. the next day (yesterday) i assumed it was safe since the room had been ventilated and the tables were gone, and worked in the room for three hour. i woke up this morning feeling terrible. is there any thing that will make me feel better from being exposed to these chemicals? ..... :(
Is it unreasonable to ask the people downstairs to be quiet because they're being really obnoxiously loud and shouting drunken obscenities on their patio just below my daughter's window?
I feel like I shouldn't ask them to be quiet, because they're just hanging out on their own property, but damn if I haven't had to go calm down my daughter and coax her back into sleep three or four times in the last thirty minutes. =[
I made $200 today. Should I blow it all on booze and fly women or invest in my retirement? Does beer make your asshole just a little bit looser? Just a little more relaxed? Is it okay to poke through a stranger's dresser and closet if they aren't home and all the pictures in the room are of a sweet piece of tail?
Do you have any movie recommendations for me? I like thrillers, horror, action/adventure, and some comedies. I'm not a big fan of romantic comedies, so if you're going to suggest one please note if it is even the tiniest bit lame.
This is kind of vague, so I'm going off what I remember. Little there is.
A couple years ago there was a cheesy horror movie that came out that was a change up-play up on words of another horror release that came out about six months earlier. I remember it was a really bad zombie movie and part of the movie was shot in a movie rental store. I remember that the cover art for the movie had a green haze in the back and had three people standing on the front, with a bigger, heavyset man in the middle. They may or may not have been holding guns.
I've tried searching for this movie, but I've not been successful.
Thank you in advance. Please help me to stop obsessing about this movie.
I know what it is now. It's called Hide and Creep. Thank you for those who tried to help me. Phew. No more thinking about it now.
Is $48 is a good deal on an eye exam for a glasses prescription?
What are some distinctly 'American' things to say? Ex. "bloody brilliant" is British and "mate" is Aussie, what about Americans?
Do you have any good eating habits? I don't like sweets, so I don't eat them.
My nail bed tends to itch a little after I cut my nails. It feels kind of satisfying, like peeling an orange. Is that weird? What do you find weirdly satisfying? (Cleaning ears, pulling out belly lint...c'mon.)
