This is a little random, tiredness and curious too. Also, I am in a joking mood! I know love, compassion, trust and everything else is more important! I just want to see what you guys will say. LoL. So here's the question:
I am a taurus, and my boyfriend is a scorpio. Are we meant to be, or are there going to be too many problems to work out to last? What's your opinion?

TQC, help me settle a bet.

Tonight at the bar, there was a REALLY cute bartender. I ordered a rum and cranberry, and we started talking while I paid and he made it. He handed me a drink, but it was NOT was I ordered. He took it back, smelled it, dumped it and made me another one, while laughing about his mistake. He made the same thing again, and I gave it back, and he smelled and dumped it again. This happened a third time. Finally he got it right and gave me my drink, and then said "Wow, I made you a rum and clamato." We laughed a little and I left. I ordered a vodka later and the conversation resumed. At the end of the night, I returned my glass and he said "Oh hey! See you again, yeah?"

Also, I'd never been to this bar before, and my good friend is the bouncer, who I hung out with all night in plain view.

The question: My roommate thinks he was flirting with me, I say he was trying to get a bigger tip. WHO IS RIGHT?

TL:DR - Cute bartender mixes up my drink three times while talking to me, and then after another conversation later, says "I'll see you again, yeah?"

1) Have you ever not used the most fitting word in spoken communication because you either were unsure how to pronounce it correctly or you knew you would be unable to pronounce it? If you remember some examples, please share.

2) Of which magazine do you possess the most number of copies? (e.g., is there a Vogue in every corner? Perhaps you collect National Geographic?)

hair help?!

Hi TQC, I want to change my hair up for the summer. I'm considering going blonde but I'm really bad at picturing myself with different hair. So can you tell me if you think this will look okay? And if you don't like it, do you have any suggestions for a new style/colour?
And because just posting pictures of myself makes me feel awkward, will you post a picture where you're making a funny face?

My boyfriend and I are planning a trip to DC in August (I know, it will be scorching hot and we are insane), but I've never been. I'm looking for a decent hotel in a safe neighborhood, within a ten minute walk to a metro station. Looking to spend up to $100/night, max.

My boyfriend and I can be a little picky as we both graduated from a hospitality college, but we're not packing the blacklight or anything extreme. Just looking to get what we pay for. Any recommendations?


I was going to post this to law questions...

If a cop catches you on June 1st with a freshly expired inspection sticker, will s/he give you 24 hours to get an inspection or write you a ticket then and there? I have been told 2 different things and the dmv site isn't much help.

Do you let other people drive your car are are you really picky about it? There is only one person who I let drive my car (aside from mechanics, etc) and that's only when I can't park or I'm impaired or something.

Is there a time of year that is particularly hard for you? If so, How do you deal/cope with it?

I ask because Father's Day is always extremely hard for me. This year I have been in a really great place mentally and emotionally and I wish that I could just erase that whole month. I have EDNOS, GAD and struggle with Depression, but this year has been So Good and I have had so few symptoms that I really would like advice as how to not dread it/let it fuck me up.

Thanks so much guys in advance.

why did he come up with this and then implement it?

When you finish a class, do you save your notes/papers or toss 'em? If you save them, do you save them for yourself, or pass them on to a friend who is taking the class?

I am in the mood for a fun, lighthearted movie day. I own the following, but have never watched them. Which are musts for today:

Plan my vacation for me TQC!!!!

My family is going on a road trip starting the 3rd, this Wednesday, and I just need to be back by late the 10th. I just spend 90 minutes on the phone with my family trying to figure out what the hell we are going to go and we got nowhere. We are leaving from South Michigan, and any direction is fine. We cannot go to Canada, because starting tomorrow you need a passport, and my dad doesn't have one.

Options are>
Mackinac Island for a day or two.
Niagara Falls
North Carolina

My brother and dad want to see a museum for a day. I want to see an insane asylum/anything to do with a serial killer for a day. I also would like to swim outside one or two of these days.

Hi TQC. I've just (as in, within the last two hours) been dumped by my boyfriend of 14 months. I'd go out with my friends, but they're all hundreds of miles away at university, or getting ready for final exams which start tomorrow and I don't want to disturb them. So, can you can suggest a way for me to cheer myself up? Or failing that, could you cheer me up?

tell me about your bookz

1. About how many books do you own?
2. What are the main categories that make up your collection?  (e.g., literature, science, history, bdsm erotica, etc...)
3a. Do you keep all the books that you buy, or do you sell them/give them away?
3b. If you don't keep them, how do you decide which ones to keep?
4. Will you tell me about a book you've read recently?

1. I would say close to 500, maybe somewhat more.
2. Literary fiction, philosophy, fantasy lit, and foreign languages.
3a. I mostly keep everything except for the books that I know without a doubt I will never read again in my life. Otherwise, it's hard for me to let go of books.
3b. I take them to a used bookstore, where I get store credit in exchange.
4. I just started a book called "The Solitary Vice: Against Reading", which talks about how reading has been perceived as a threat, an indulgence, and more recently, as a cure-all for all life's woes. I'm only thirty pages in, but it's really interesting so far.

Is it a desperately bad idea to send him a message along the lines of, 'I miss you, I don't like not talking'?
And how do I stop myself from bursting into tears every 5 minutes?

I know I did the right thing but I just keep remembering that at the end of the day, he was a nice guy.

For those in long-distance relationships: What do you do when your SO hasn't contacted you in a week or longer?

My bf seems to be in a nasty habit of only texting or calling once every few days, but now I haven't heard from him in a week. He hasn't updated his Facebook in that time either. :/

I'm 27, a female, and non-smoker... except I quit a 10 year addiction to weed about 82 days ago, so YAY me! I recently smoked about 10 cigs in the span of 3 hours on a trip home from Wisonsin back to Chicago. Ever since then, this voice has been nagging me to buy a pack. The cigs didn't do anything much for me, except when I got down near the filter I got a bit light headed.. So TQC, I have a few questions for you and keep in mind if I did buy a pack I'd buy menthol!

1) The Newport Lights burn so fast! What cigs burn slow and taste good? The Newport lights tasted ok to me..

2) What type of buzz do you get from smoking cigs? Cause for me, it just kinda replaced that feeling of smoking a joint, you know holding a cig, inhaling, lighting it... The cigarettes did make me a little light headed/dizzy but the feeling only lasted for seconds.

3) Do you smoke cigarettes more for the physical effects, or is it just a habit/ritual?

4) I guess this is like number 1, but what are your favorite brand of cigarettes to smoke?

So, bring on the telling mr not to start smoking at age 27 after quitting the weed thing. Can you also answer my questions, too?

- Steamed broccoli

What Should We Do Tomorrow?

My (new) boyfriend and I are hanging out tomorrow because we both get out early from uni. We have from 1-6 pm. At 6 we're going to our dancing lesson. What should we do between that time? We want to cook a soup, but that will only take a few hours up. It's also quite cold (Australia) right now.
We were considering going and finding some autumn leaves to play in. What else? Random, non sexual ideas would be good!

i know a guy who is in a band, and they are getting new t-shirts made. the shirts are gonna be of them playing on a stage with all their friends and girlfriends in the audience, and everyone is gonna be a cartoon. the guy told me the person making the t-shirt needs a picture of my face and two pictures of my FEET, one of the tops and one of the bottoms, to make me into a character. WTF, TQC? he said the computer program uses the foot picture to make the body of the character.

so has anyone ever heard of this?

This guy I've had a crush on for quite some time now, was supposed to take me out to lunch today. I didn't hear a word from him and he finally called around 9pm saying he blacked out last night and someone took his phone and he just got it back. I'm pretty sure he went to a graduation party last night so the chances of him blacking out from drinking are extremely high.

Would this be a turn off for you?
Would you give him a second chance if he called anyway, was semi apologetic, and made instant plans for the next day?

For those of you who saw my post earlier today about revenge on being stood up, this is the same guy. Even though he called and explained, some of those ideas will still be considered.

Excuse me for being incredibly vague but this is driving me crazy.

I have made the decision to go and visit my boyfriend in July. I haven't seen him since January 2008 (mostly due to financial situations we both had).
It's going to be a short stay, since I know he is coming out this winter for a bit.

Should I pick the cheaper flight and head out rather early the day I am leaving, or pay an extra 40 or so bucks to stay and head out in the late evening?
if I leave early morning, I can just take the T back home, which would save me the hassle. If I leave late at night, I'll have to have someone pick me up at the airport, since the bus doesn't run after midnight. However, I would have more time to spend with him that day.

I am thinking leaving later that day, but help sway my mind completely, please.
