I need a name for roller derby. My friend suggested Smokestack Lightnin'. I think I might use it - it's a Howlin' Wolf song, and it's about a train. I'm a blocker (defense), so that says something. If I were a jammer (offense), I'd go for Scorin' Zevon, but... yeah, I'm not. IS THIS A GOOD DERBY NAME? If not, give me some suggestions. It can't already be taken on the registry (the website isn't working right now, otherwise I'd post a link). Good options are really awesome badass names, or really awesome badass names taken from celebrity names. Basically.

Who is in to roller derby around here?
What league (city) do you root for?
What team on your league has a soft spot in your heart?
Who is your favorite derby girl?
Most interesting derby names you've seen?
park, wind, pocahontas

Arrg, I'm in a bit of a pickle. I wear contacts, and stupidly forgot to buy a new bottle of cleaning/soaking solution. I've got a couple of mini bottles of rewetting drops and those "blink and clean" drops. Am I okay to use either one of those, or a combination of the two, just to soak them overnight until tomorrow?

Don't worry, I'm not going to use water. I haven't got any spare contacts and my glasses are, well...out of order. The only other option is to wear them overnight, but these are about a week past their throw-away date.

That's a German one but you get the idea.

There are several in my area, with what equates two lanes, like above though there's no painted divider. If you were driving in one [in USA, reverse that if you drive on the wrong side of the road], would you, from the inside lane, make a right turn off to one of the roads? Without using your blinker?

This is was basically 75% of the people around here do and I don't get it. Most people wouldn't make a right turn from the left lane on a normal road, so why is a circular road different? That is so likely to cause an accident it is ridiculous.

Oh I'm turning... NOW! WHAM! CRASH!

have you ever let sexual frustration affect your mood? have you ever let it come between you and your SO? how long of no sex or bad sex does it take before you'll have a serious conversation with your SO about it? would you ever break up with someone you love because the sex sucked or was non-existent?

Tonight my friend and I were about to hook up and he said to me "if we do anything will you promise not to tell anyone. I don't do things with drunk girls thats my rule."

Is it more likely that he's embarrassed by me and just not interested, or that he really didn't want people to think less of him for hooking up with me while I was drunk.

Needless to say I was offended and left.

Can you trust your prostitute girlfriend?

I have a girlfriend but she works in a club when I met her, then we got one night together then after that we got out again the next week then I started to fall in love with her, then I told her to leave that job for me but she refuse. Right now I'm wondering if it's alright to trust a prostitute.

i've been looking for this awesome bed for forever now. i really love it but i have no idea where to find it. it's called a parisienne bed. i want one that looks just like that one or very very similar. i saw another one that kind of looked like it in this chocolate commercial (you can heat the chocolate up in the microwave).

this bed was featured in a blog but i can't find that either. all of my links were wiped out a couple weeks ago.

does anyone know where i could possibly find this?

i posted this in Saucy help

*i also tried looking it up in a search engine. i found one kind of close but it's in the UK and not upholstered.

Do you have any suggestions for how my BF and I can spruce up his backyard for summer parties and fun? It's urban, so it's just a rowhome-sized concrete slab with a few trees around the perimeter and a low chainlink fence. We also have to worry about theft, so things either have to be easily brought inside or secured.

Also, we tried to go out to eat the other day but there was a street festival blocking our intended destination. The restaurant was open and all, but we were told we'd have to pay $5 admission to the festival just to get to the restaurant. That's effed, right?

In NY, allergy season is well under way. I thought I was going to charge through this season like a viking army. Needless to say, my Nasonex, and Zyrtec have let me down. In the past I have tried Claritin and Allergra mixed with Allergy shots. The shots helped, the medicines didn't. I tried to take some Tylenol Extra Strength Allergy to no avail. I have to go to work so I can't take Benedryl. Those of you who also suffer from allergies, what is your saving grace this year? I'm trying to save up for a HEPA filter thing but in the meantime, I'd kind of like to be able to breathe and function.

I am currently in PA school and have a rotation coming up in September in ob/gyn at a clinic with a high Spanish-speaking population. I'm excited for the rotation, but very nervous as I speak no more Spanish than what's in the Taco Bell commercials or all of the Spanish version of "This I Promise You" by N Sync :/

I don't have much time right now to pick up any extra studying, but will have a few weeks off between now and September. Do you have any suggestions for learn-it-quickly medical spanish books?

So, I'm in a photography class working with black&white film.

A couple of days ago our class did a critique on our work, and there was this guy
that managed to "draw" on his photographs. Like I know you can draw on the actual

I am guessing he was playing with the light while he was processing the print...

but I am not to sure...

Dear TQC,

So many people I know are having financial problems. Difficulty paying the bills, losing jobs, hours cut back, savings what savings?? and so on.

Are all these people lazy and irresponsible? Should I be encouraging them to get second or third jobs with Wal-Mart and McDonald's?

Assuming they aren't all lazy, how do I determine who's worthy of my friendship and who I should quit talking to?

So, your job has, for whatever reason, been pissing you off, and it's building up until the most horrible customer comes along, and at last, you can't take it anymore.

So how do you quit the job? The horrible customer is still standing there, demanding service. No consequences will come except loss of pay from this job (ie your former boss ain't gonna write you up or something that jeopardises any chances of future jobs), and you're already guaranteed a job at your relative's place anyway.

I would probably go into a long and multi-syllabled-in-vocabulary rant, after which I'd probably end with an expletive-filled version of 'I QUIT!' As I do this, I'd be moving to get my stuff and change into my clothes (ranting all the way through from the loo) and throw my uniform at the customer. And also show the palm-inwards V sign as I go out the door.

EDIT: Wow, there are less drama mamas on TQC than I thought.

There's some author, maybe one of the Transcedentalists or Romantics, who was big into revering the child, going back to childhood because as a child you're more enlightened. He wrote at least one poem about it all. Any one remember the author or the name of the movement? I can't recall for the life of me and can't figure out what to google.

Okay, so I went on OKCupid. I ended up having dinner with three different guys (different times, obviously). I decided one wasn't worth my time. The other two are great, but I'm pretty sure I know who I want to be seeing regularly.
The one who I want to see regularly is coming back to town (goes to college a couple hours from here, but his "home" is ten minutes from mine), and I want to take him to karaoke with my friends on Saturday.
Problem is, I took the other guy to karaoke last Saturday and I'm pretty sure he wants to come back this week.
I'm not quite sure where I stand with Guy I Want to See Regularly (there's a mutual attraction, but I dunno if he wants it to go in to bf/gf mode), and the other guy is freaking FABULOUS as well. So I'm not ready to toss other guy away.
Question is:
How do I tell the other guy that I don't want him to come to karaoke? If I say I'm not going, he might go on his own, because he made friends with a friend of mine, and there are ALWAYS pictures taken for Facebook, so he'll see them. I also don't want to be like "well, I'm bringing another guy this week" because that seems ridiculously cuntish.

(I haven't slept with either, and there isn't a strong emotional investment, so don't come to conclusions that I'm stringing either along. Neither man has said "hey. let's be exclusive and stuff because I really like you a lot").

You have a big test coming up.  You fail this test, you fail out of your college program.  This means that 4 years of studying and money are down the drain.

How do you get over your fear of failure? How do you deal with the stress?

ETA:  I have studied on my own, and am done with the study guide, but would like to have comrades to compare notes with.

The other day I was walking in the woods on my property looking for a bird that I could hear, and I saw what I thought were feathers on the ground. When I was walking back out of the woods I realized it was actually clumps of fur that looked like rabbit fur. My cats had caught a baby rabbit the day before but I thought it got away, so when I saw the fur I figured maybe it hadn't gotten away after all. But there was a lot of fur and my cats don't usually kill things and they never eat them so there wouldn't have been that much fur around.

Then I noticed that there was fur stuck in the branches of the bushes and trees around. I saw one clump first and thought "huh, that's weird" and then slowly became aware of more and more clumps of fur in the branches. Then I noticed that it wasn't just fur - most of the clumps were still held together by bits of flesh and stuff. (I know, ew, sorry.) Some of these bits of fur and creepiness are like 8 or 10 feet off the ground. And there's a LOT of it.

So TQC, I ask you - WHAT THE HELL HAPPENED IN MY BACKYARD?! Did a rabbit explode?! HOW COULD A RABBIT EXPLODE? I am very creeped out by this.

My ex and I are on pretty good terms, our relationship ended because of timing issues basically. It's been quite recent though, only about two weeks since the breakup. I do see him about twice a week at mutual things and Sunday was the most recent time I've seen him. He looked AWFUL. It looked like he hadn't slept in a really long time, was super unhappy and just...i don't even know but it was hard to see. On my way home from the event I texted him and asked him if he really didn't want me to keep going to these mutual things he'd let me know. He texted back saying, "yeah, you're fine. everything is just falling apart right now." I asked what he meant and he responded, "i don't even know, just forget it." And I said okay and left it at that. Well, I'm going to be seeing him tomorrow at our friends house and had an idea to bake him his favorite cookies and bring them to him tomorrow.

Is this okay? or is it weird? I'm doing it just because I want to do something nice but nothing extreme...ya know? I've never really been friends with an ex before so I'm not sure how well this will go over.

EDIT: I forgot my other question!

For those of you who have made No-Bake cookies before, did your recipe call for peanut butter? Do you have a preference when it comes to using the peanut butter or going without it?

Adobe InDesign Question

Question for those who are familiar with the program Adobe InDesign:

I have two Adobe InDesign files - one is in a custom paper size (7 in X 10 in) and the other is in the A4 paper size (8.2677 in X 11.6929 in).

I need to copy and paste one page from the custom paper size document into the A4 paper size document, while keeping the proportions and all the tabs intact and without having to re-do them all.

Young Little Sister or teen?

I'm working on being re-matched with a Little Sister through Big Sisters Organization. Tonight I had an outing with two prospective Littles. One is 9 and one is 14. They're both great but I can only choose one. Would you choose an older Little Sister or a younger one? Why? I'm debating what to do. The older one has been waiting for a Big Sister for a while now. She's harder to match because she's older and she'll graduate from the program in 2 years. The younger is new to the program and potentially will be a little for 7 years.

If it's not too personal, what is your kink in bed?

I just discovered tonight that mine is having my ass played with.

On a less sexual note and more innocent note, what is your favourite type of food?

Mine is Italian.
My better half.

Okay, first post, hi hi hi hi.
So here's the deal... I don't really have time to post a the huge, lengthy background that this question really needs, so you all will have to just work with what I give you.
My exboyfriend and I have had a rocky, complicated relationship for a long, long time. As in, we have been broken up and struggling with that for longer than we were even together... but we were very passionate about one another, and that situation is not going to change any time soon. Last week he ditched out on me twice in a row and lied enough to make me stop talking to him for a week. He tends to do these sorts of things on a regular basis, but I won't listen to good advice such as "Stop talking to him for good! You two are obviously bad for each other, yadda yadda!" so don't waste your time with those ones. Haha. Basically what I'm getting at is that I miss him, and today he left a note on my car [[I changed my number, so we no longer text.]] telling me that he would wait for me at his house from eleven on, in hopes that I would take him up on his offer of good company... Which he honestly is. When he isn't making awkward sexual advances or threatening to kill himself, we get along fabulously, and have a great time together. I'd like to get out of my house and maybe drink some coffee and get some homework done in his company, but my spiteful nature makes me want to just not show up and "get him back" for ditching out on me hardcore last week.

So, what do you think, TQC... Go kick it with my crazy ex for the evening and enjoy his truly charismatic company or stay in and let him wait up all night, just as I had last week?

Edit: TL;DR, FAIL, BAWWW move along. Sorry to have wasted your time. I'll do better next go around.

When you were little (like ages 5-10) , what did you want to be when you grew up?

How about when you were a teenager?


What are you practicing now?

I'm 15 and I want to be a fashion photographer, or at least a photographer.  Big plans. =] But anyway, somebody swore to me that I'd change my mind by the time I got to college.

tldr: roommate's mom is a bitch.

my roommate has had her mom spend the night about 10 times this semester. i live in a DORM, so, she's about eight feet away. both she and her mom are two of the most inconsiderate people i've ever met. she wakes up at 6 and turns all the lights on, even when i don't have to be up til noon or later. they microwave things and watch really loud movies in the middle of the night. etc etc etc...

right now, her mom is snoring SO, SO loudly. i have a final tomorrow that i'm trying to study for but it's SO distracting, and i'm in my PJs and i really don't want to have to get dressed and leave.

what should i do, tqc? this is really pissing me off.

TQC, what are the potential ramifications of eating raw, unwashed produce? (Grocery store produce, not farmer's market, etc.)

Do you wash your produce? (How well?)

All hype and paranoia aside, if there were a global pandemic of any sort, what would happen? Would everyone go into quarantine? Would businesses and schools close?

Do you have an opinion on the Harvard comma?

1) Has the recent spate of unseasonably warm weather in various parts of the world caused you to give more credence to global warming?

1a) Do you prefer the phrase "climate change" to "global warming"?

2) Do you think we're due for another ice age, or some other major geological phenomenon? Isn't it amazing that we've been in this life-coddling temperate period for so long?

3) Is it too late at night where you are to discuss climate change?

My roommate just came home with book she bought today called, Why Men Love Bitches.

The writer claims that a "bitch"...
-is kind yet strong. She doesn't give up her life, and she won't chase a man.
-maintains a little distance combined with the appearance of self-control which makes a man nervous that he may be losing her.

GUYS, is this true to any extent? Girls, feel free to throw in your two cents.
