iPhone or Blackberry Storm? I want something fancier than my enV. My dad has a Storm and likes it, but I've heard many good things about the iPhone, and I'm intrigued by all those apps....

If you have either of these phones, can you tell me what's awesome and what sucks about them?

help me with my pickle

Guys I am in a pickle!! I want to go to sleep, but I am chatting. Normally in this situation I would take sleep meds to force me to fall asleep while still chatting, so I don't have to leave. BUT due to the suckage of the new router's wireless range, I can't internet from bed anymore. THIS MEANS that if I take my sleep meds I risk falling asleep on the couch, but I can chat until I get loopy and then pass out. Or I could just go to bed now. I want to wake up around 10-11am tomorrow.

WHAT SHOULD I DO?

I was just playing backgammon on my macbook and lost. My opponent (the computer) then asked me if I would like some habanero sauce with my spanking. Um, wtf?

What have you bought or sold on Craigslist?
I've got a car, a motorcycle, a weight bench, a couch/love seat set, and a coffee/end table set all listed at the same time right now.

Do you have a "junk drawer" where you stick things that don't really have anywhere else to go but that you want to keep handy?  What's in it?  Will you show us a picture?

In regards to the last Mystery Bruise on your person: Where was it? How do you suspect you got it, though you cannot be sure?

There's a quarter-sized bruise directly on my kneecap. I don't know, but I ran into the coffee table this morning, hitting that exact spot on the opposite knee, so I'm assuming that is the origin of this bruise.

Shoes

I didnt back my high heels into my bag because I couldnt get them to fit in. (when i traveled across from WA to QLD with only about 5kgs of stuff)

So I urgently need to know:

Is it acceptable (by club standards) to wear flats out to nightclubs? Or should I go out shopping and pick up some heels (and hope they are comfortable enough to wear tonight....) ?

I only have 2 pairs of flats and some like.. 'skate' shoes (I guess thats what you would call them...) 

Thankies!!!

I worked for Jamba Juice for a year and a half and I just discovered my old uniforms in a box.  There's no point in returning it, as it's been a year since I worked there, and the uniforms have changed since then.

Besides throwing it away, can you think of some creative uses for black polos, aprons and a visor?

Dear TQCers,

What is the polite way to deflect come-ons when you're in a relationship?

Like, lets say you're in the lunch line at work and the counter-man tells you that so-and-so from another department (who was standing in line ahead of you and has complimented you before) has bought your lunch for you, then walks away to another part of the cafeteria.

What should you do?

Are you expected to eat with them? Is it rude not to? Can you just tell them that you've got a boyfriend or should you just thank them and eat your lunch?


I feel like a heel.

Say you found the love of your life. Assume for this story, you're attracted to the opposite sex. It's hypothetical, so who cares. You got married, had children together, and then you find out that you're really brother & sister. What would you do? Would you stay married? Tell your children?

No, you won't be able to know before you have kids.

So, my boyfriend and I like to try new beers every now and then. We try to stick to the local brewery beers n stuff. Well. A few days ago we picked up a six pack of a new type of beer that we hadn't tried before.

It was super bitter and ucky.

Neither of us finished the bottle that we had started. So now what do we do with the remaining 4 beers? I can't think of any friends that would like them.

So my roommates (there are 4 of us including me.) have decided to start having weekly family  dinners. This is just like it sounds we all sit down once a week and eat together. It is my turn to cook next.  I have ample 2 days to prepare and am not a terrible cook, but, I have a college student budget.

What do I make that is totally awesome and cheep that will feed four maybe 5 people?

This has to be at least the third food question I've asked here. lol. Everyone likes food, right? :P

I'm going to my friend's cocktail party tonight and she asked everyone to bring some kind of food. I want to make something savoury and finger-foody and something desserty. I'm a bit pressed for time and I can't really be bothered to make anything elaborate. What should I make?

Danke :D


Also, what was the last thing that happened to you that really, really pissed you off?
I was supposed to be moving today and apparently the paperwork wasn't completed by the other people's solicitor so now we have to wait until Monday. I had one of my increasingly rare shitty child tantrum moments over it.

There was some guy parked near where I was running. There was vomit near the driver side door and it smelled like beer. I think he was at least trying to sleep it off or something, but I called the cops anyways just in case. However, it took me like 10 mins to get home because I just had my keys and ipod. Should I go back and make sure he's still there? And maybe get a license if he does drive away?

Edit: I went back, he was still there. Cops came. I left. I walk home and he's parked at the corner market on my block. I dunno what happened. Maybe he's sick. Dude needs to go home.

If you are the kind of person who likes setting off fireworks, and assuming your state allows it (or not YOU CRIMINALZ), where do you go to set them off?

My brother and I got PILES of fireworks, and just realized we have no idea where to shoot 'em. I'm thinking near a lake or something? I don't even know where to start looking. They're not the giant real fireworks of course, but there are a good amount of little rockety things that could probably set a tree on fire in the city.

Kind of inspired by this post,
What are some stores that have impressed you with their customer service?
What are some that haven't?

Once, I liked a pair of shoes from Aldo, but the store didn't have them in my size, so they ordered me a pair and sent them to my house at no extra charge. This was at about 4:30pm. The shoes showed up THE NEXT DAY. I love Aldo.

Hi guys

I really want to go see the new Johnny Depp movie. Do you think the theaters will be more crowded tonight or tomorrow night? I was thinking they'll be less crowded tomorrow as people will be watching fireworks and junk.

Dual Monitor w/ 2 computers?

I've googled but I'm not sure how to describe what I want, so I haven't had much luck.

I have my personal laptop that I bring to work with me. My work only has one monitor.

I was wondering, is it possible to hook my laptop to the desktop and use my laptop as a secondary monitor, but also be able to use my laptop at the same time? (As in, I could toggle modes somehow between it serving as a secondary monitor and being a normal computer.)

Is this possible? How could I swap modes? Is there a guide anywhere for this?

I'm turning 22 in a little over than a month!

I don't really want to have a party, but I do want to hang out with my friends. I'm not much for bar-hopping or clubbing. What do you think I should do?

ETA: Asking this early because my sister was thinking of going to the beach, and she wants me to come up with a plan soon because she wants to know when or if to start planning that.

TQC, I'm using Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain [which some of you recommended to me a while ago] to learn to draw. Of the supplies it lists, one is a piece of plastic about 1/16 of an inch thick. How thick is this? Like, saran wrap thick? It seems thicker than that to me. Can I find a piece of plastic like this at Walmart? I'm so confused.

I took German classes during middle school & high school. I've pretty much forgotten most of what I learned except for a few things :( I'd like to relearn it, but I don't want to pay to take it. Are there any good, free programs/sites/whatever to help me relearn it? I've tried Rosetta Stone and hated it; it wasn't teaching me grammar or words for things I actually wanted to know (I could care less what the word for running is in Japanese. Really.). Am I SOL until I feel like taking an actual class? I'm not opposed to downloading torrents and such.

1)What public service announcements in your area do you remember?

One with a grandmother looking sad in a hospital and the message was don't let bad bug spray kill your family. Another was a man being zipped into a body bag. The message was unnecessary 911 calls kill.

2)How would you act on a road trip?
