Would a smoker who only smokes outside away from the front door be a dealbreaker as a roommate?

I need some help ovah here!

So my dad has had a long standing dream to open a tattoo parlor and finally, I believe it's happening. The only thing is, I've been searching for interior design type ideas for the shop and nothing comes up. I can't believe there aren't websites dedicated to tattoo shop interiors!

So my question is:

Does anyone know of any kind of website like this? Do you have any ideas of your own to share with me?

If it helps, we're going for an asian/zen theme.

Say you're looking to post an ad on Craigslist looking for a roommate for the third bedroom in your apartment (you've already lived with the other current inhabitant for a year). What info would you include in the ad? What kinds of questions would you ask prospective roommates if you were to interview them (SPECIFICS plz)? What would be a total dealbreaker for you?

My friend has a cat that her mom is adamantly trying to get rid of because the cat gets upset about their hectic lives and pees on everything. The SCPA won't take her because she's overweight, and the pound will put her down because they are overcrowded as it is. My friend is heartbroken and because it doesn't seem like the mom will look into any kind of behavioral therapy (and the issue isn't health-related), she is looking to find it a new home.

Can you guys please help me brainstorm ways to find a good home for the cat? I'm gonna see if they'll let me put an add up on Craigslist tomorrow, and I think they'll take an add out in the local paper. Is there anything else I can do?

Because i have to re-take two classes, I either have to take 18 hours fall semester, 18 hours spring semester or something like one class in the summer. What do you think would be best? Of course taking one class in the summer is easiest, but if I get my GPA up, I might be able to study abroad next summer. There's also an 8-week class I need being offered online during fall semester. Thoughts?

Elections Canada has released a statement of musings out loud of ways to increase voter participation and turn out.

One of the thoughts is to allow for voter registration to be done online and then to allow registered voters to be able to vote online.

TQC, within the next 3 months or so, I am going to be buying a new(er) car.  Mine is on its last legs after 12 years and 200,000 miles.  I put together a spreadsheet of cars that I am interested in, based on MPG, MSRP, and features.  They are:

KIA SPECTRA EX
KIA FORTE EX
HONDA CIVIC LX
KIA OPTIMA LX
VOLKSWAGEN JETTA S
MAZDA 3 4-DOOR iTOURING
HYUNDAI SONATA GLS
FORD FUSION S
MAZDA 6 iSV
TOYOTA CAMRY
HONDA ACCORD LX
VOLKSWAGEN JETTA TDI

Do any of you have any firsthand, persaonl experience with any of these vehicles?  Reliability?  Comfort?  Etc?
(I haven't gotten to the test drive stage yet.)


If you don't know/don't care/have no input, what do you wear to work?  Do you like it?
The company bought us all polos and dress shirts a few months back.  They look real nice, but at the time I was an XL.  Now that I'm an L, they all hang off of my like saddle blankets and look sloppy.

After reading the US News website that I had never used before (thanks for the heads up, Uberash) the KIAs and Hyundai are out.  (The Spectra, in particular, had a 5 for a reliability rating).  The VW is gone for cost purposes, and the Mazdas are last resort, as they were the only ones of the remaining cars to be less than 9 overall.

So, now I'm down the the Civic, the Camry, the Accord, and the Fusion...all of which are dead even with ratings of 9.

Long time no see, TQC.

I am dissatisfied with my job. I'm a barista, but the store is so slow nights (when I work) that I make about 4-5 drinks in my 8 hour shift. The rest of the time I am just cashiering people with their groceries. It's depressing. I'm not going to quit, but I'm looking for another job on the side. However, I doubt I'm going to find another job that is full time and pays 9/hr.

My friend needs to mail certified/official mail to the Superior Court of California. It's going to cost 20+ dollars but he has -no- money (this is a long story) and already owes me 74 dollars.

I don't doubt that he'll do this but I'm trying to keep the cushion in my account at 1000 or higher and my next paycheck will not cover rent. Advice?

I just started working on my education degree and I want to buy a laptop. I used to have a Sony Vaio but it sucked and gave me nothing but problems until it was unusable and I gave up and got a desktop.

What are the pros/cons of a Mac? Am I going to hate it and want to throw it out the window? Not having Windows doesn't bother me because I'm pretty apathetic about it.

1) It is my friends 18th birthday in a month, and she will be on holiday with her mum. Some of her close friends are visiting on the sunday to take her out for the evening.
On saturday, friend, her boyfriend are coming in car A
Me and one other are coming in car B (which has changed, we were going on sunday but are now going on saturday to make the most of the trip)
One other is coming on sunday in car C

One person (lets call him Tim) is saying he won't come on Saturday in car B as he can't afford it. (Even though he will have to pay for petrol, taxi, drinks and clubs irrelevant of what day) However, rather than go in car C on sunday, he is refusing to come at all, just because he doesn't like her driving.

Am I the only one who thinks this is ridiculous, and unfair on car B, as he is guilting them into going down on sunday?

TQC, I'm feeling pretty shitty and I have a few options for what to do tonight. I do have to work in the morning, but not too early. So, I need you to help me decide! Should I:
A. Go to my SO's house and spend the night there (watch movies together, and possibly go swimming). His house is also closer to where I work, but is an hour-long drive from my house.
B. Spend the night at home. Cook/eat dinner alone, play some video games or something, and then go to bed.
C. Some other option that I haven't thought of
I can't really go out anywhere, because I'm pretty broke until Friday, so going to the movies, going out to eat, etc is out of the question. However, I have plenty of gas in my car and my SO and I already rented Downfall and Session 9 but haven't had time to watch them yet.

If you don't care, do you have any vacations planned? When and to where?
Yes. I'm going to Baltimore for a week with friends to go to Otakon and see the inner harbor and stuff. We're leaving July 16th and coming back on the 23rd. I'm also planning on surprising my SO with a trip to Boston, but that may have to be put off until a bit later in the year.

So my daughter lost her first tooth a couple weeks ago while staying the week with my grandmother. Ever since she got home, my daughter has been sleeping with the tooth fairy money under her pillow. She's upset that I didn't get to see her tooth, and she's hoping the Tooth Fairy will bring it back to her. I did get the tooth back from my Grandma, and today I had a coworker write a little note to my daughter as the Tooth Fairy. I'm thinking of doing it in reverse and leaving the note and tooth under her pillow. My boyfriend thinks this is very lame, while my coworkers think it's awesome. What do you think? Lame or cute?
