for those on nuvaring: has it made your boobs bigger? i've been on nuvaring for 9 weeks and i think my boobs are getting bigger. i am already wearing a 34DD (i'm really a 32F) and this is massively DNW.
I can't remember what time I go in to the office tomorrow, TQC, and now I'm fretting over mixing up my times and not having coverage in the morning, so I'm going to suck it up and go in early, since I can't contact any coworkers at this late hour. If I am right, and I'm not due in until 1 PM, what should I do with the 6 hours I'll have? Driving home and back later would put an extra 50 miles on my gas tank, something I want to avoid at all costs. I would normally just say sleep, but a) it is too hot and b) the idyllic little town I work in has ordinances against such vagrant-like behavior.
is there any place/time when a lie is necessary?
do you think it's okay to lie to someone to spare their feelings? will you explain?

Did the sea reclaim New Zealand yesterday?
I heard they had a tremor
That is all.
The only one I have to do that way is my DFAS payment. Go figure that, of all the people I pay on a monthly basis, the US government is the only one who is "unable to accept electronic payments."
Of the bills you don't send a check for, are the rest online, over the phone, or some combination of the two?

If you were a hamster or other small animal, would it be appealing to you to constantly be on the move and in different settings, or would you prefer to stay with a single family with more consistent and stable surroundings?

Also how do you determine if your foot is narrow, medium or wide?
I think it's pretty rad.
My girlfriend and I currently live together and have for the past 6 months. Her job is relocating her 200 miles away next week. I have been trying to relocate with my company in her new area but have not had any luck as of yet. We have set a tentative time table of one month apart before the situation needs to be reevaluated. What are the odds that this thing is going to work out?
P.S. She is awesome and I would hate to lose this relationship.
My bosses aren't here. They won't be here until tomorrow. 1 is in St. Louis, the other is at home with a sick child.
I have absolutely no urge to do any sort of work. I don't want to be here, but I have to pick my dog up from the vet at 4:30 and I don't want to drive home and then drive all the way back over here and then all the way back home (30 miles if I felt like doing that).
So what should I do for the next 5 hours? I've got 2 other co-workers here. They are in the same mood that I'm in.
Mine is Ra Ra Riot. They're touring with Death Cab for Cutie, and their music is awesome. There's a cellist and a violinist. I think the strings are what make the music.
Have you ever gone to a doc for back pain?
What's making your entire day at the moment, TQC?

What's the last thing that made you crap your pants a little?
Her bill has been consistently high (over $100 for the last 3 months) and she uses at least half of the daytime minutes - we have 700 with 5 people on the plan. She has trouble paying on time.
I've been lenient, but should I kick her off my plan? Srs and non-srs may apply.
TQC how do i do this? Link me to something, wonderful people.
Bonus points if it's an online thing that doesn't have to be downloaded. I used to have a link to something like that but it's long been lost.
If you don't care - when was your last big scare and what was it?

Do you think it's in poor taste to ask someone if their breasts are real?
Do you ever ask people if a certain trait is natural or unnatural? Do you lean in and stare at said trait when you ask the question? If so, why the hell do you think this is acceptable?
I think honeycombs are really disgusting.
I'm looking for songs like early Ricky Martin, or Las Ketchup. Catchy tunes that make you want to get up and shake your ass. Though I'm looking for more 'local sounds', no swearing, not necessarily in english.
This question was inspired by Brother Lee by Citizen Cope. I'm looking for more songs like this.
If you look at every decade, certain fashions really stand out from it. In the 50s, you have the poodle skirts, saddle shoes, greased hair, and t-shirts. In the 60s, you have long, straight hair parted down the center, tie-dye, and bell-bottom jeans. For the 70s, platform shoes, mini-dresses, and patterns such as paisley. The 80s brought big hair, shoulder pads, bright, neon colors with black, and leg warmers. Finally, the 90s brought acid-washed jeans, jean jackets, crazy colored/patterned sweatpants, and flannel shirts.
1) Of each of these decades (or whichever one/s you choose), what fashions stick out to you the most? One that I've mentioned or another one?
2) As this decade is drawing closer to the end, what fashions do you think will define 2000-2009?
--What sticks out to me most are actually shoes - Uggs and
is this a common thing for guys to ask their friends?
I like music news and I used to read it all the time when I was younger, but I have heard a few people say that it sucks now. But it's so cheap! What say you, TQC?
I'm considering getting a part-time job and I'm just wondering....is that sort of job as fun as it looks?
e.g. I totally love maple sugar candy that is half cane sugar.
My family is going to Puerto Rico in August. We are staying at my MIL's house where there is no A/C (that's actually common in PR houses). Since there's no A/C we keep the windows open at night and run fans. The past 2 two times we have gone my son and I have been eaten alive my mosquitos at night while we sleep. They don't like the taste of my husband for some reason.
So my question is, do you guys have any suggestions besides spraying ourselves with Off every night to keep the mosquitos away?

I always get a kick out of school teachers who still call each other "Mr. Johnson" even when the kids aren't within earshot, but I still catch myself calling the dance instructors names like Miss Sunshine even though we're on equal levels.
I have periods where I will want to eat nothing but one particular food/restaurant for a while. Then I get so played out on it I move to something else and avoid before-said restaurant for a few months.
What is one thing you have been craving like none other?
For the last couple of months I have been on a quest to find the best and tastiest macaroni and cheese ever made.

What was your reaction/what did you think about it?
I think it's one of the funniest movies I've seen in my lifetime, though I can't say the guys I watched it with thought the same thing.
My question is when I go to a dealership, is it realistic to bargain on the price of a new car? How realistic? If the car if $14,500, what are my chances of getting it for like $2000 less? Is there anything I can say that may sway them?
If I'm willling to pay for the whole thing up front, are they more likely to hook me up or do they actually want you to finance so they get the interest?
Am I better off going to that specific car's dealership or one that carries different makes?
Any one driving a Huyndai have any experiences they care to share? Good car?
Also, am I better off buying a new car that costs more but comes with a 100,000 mile /10 year warranty or getting one for a little cheaper that is one or two years old but comes with a warranty that only lasts for 60,000/5 years?
If you did, will you share you favorite one with the class?
You can also post a favorite from your massive photo archive.
What is your favorite salad dressing?
I'm about to go pick my dad up from the airport, then he and my mom are going with me to the weekly ballroom dance I go to. They want me to teach them a little bit before the wedding...even though my dad, by his own description, "dances like a three-legged pig on roller skates on a frozen pond."
i googled it and it says 5th ave is the shopping district, but this doesn't seem right to me, so i wanted to ask tqc.
If you're going, are you going to the lolita fashion show on Saturday? (The only acceptable answer is yes, because I'll be one of the models =D)
Which ones do you go to?

Do you camp there? If so, how long do you camp for?
Website links are welcome.
ETA -- Photos are welcome too.
Do you think it's a good idea to apply for retail credit cards?
Has a waiter/waitress ever chided you for not finishing your meal?
There's a diner in town that I can't go to anymore because one of the waitresses would always make comments like, "Is it your birthday today and that's why you're allowed to waste food?," when I couldn't finish a gigantic meal.

I like Oberon (Bell's Brewery) and Blue Moon and Sun Dog (New Holland Brewing Co.)
what are your favorite mixed drinks?
I like anything sweet with vodka.
does anyone else get really pissed at the "More to Love" commercials when they act like being obese is better than being... healthy-sized?
i don't mean to offend anyone really... i just hate how americans view obesity as normal, when it should be viewed as... unhealthy and problematic.
ETA: "More to Love" is a new reality show like the bachelor but with obese contestants. It's a perfectly good idea. I'm glad they're doing it. But they always show this clip of some chick saying to the guy "It's nice to meet someone who likes NORMAL-sized girls." It makes me mad. I don't believe in "normal."
What's something that most people find attractive that you find unattractive?
In the winter, nothing comes in my house, but in summer, we get clothing moths, silverfish and cockroaches trying to escape the heat/find food. Occasionally a bee or a wasp will fly in too, which is always terrifying. When I was about 7 we found a mouse in the kitchen, but we haven't seen any non-bug things since then.
What do you think of this creature?

Have you ever spent them?
What did you get?
I just remembered that my credit card has rewards so I logged onto the site to see what I can get with my 9,200 points and I got a year's discount on vision services! Which is awesome because I need new glasses like whoa. Now I'm trying to decide what to use my remaining 7,200 points on. They have a dental discount for 3,500 points! Or maybe I'll get a badass blender. My brother spent 55,000 points on a blu-ray dvd player. The most expensive item on there was a 46" HDTV for 465,000 points. To put that in perspective: 1pt = 1$.
How should I go about making friends in countries where I speak very little of the language? I don't care if I'm hanging out with other tourists or locals, I'd just like to meet some fun people to hang out with.

Counseling. Or maybe a medical degree.

Any ideas? Or, better yet, any inventive dorm decorating ideas? Google tells me to throw in a plant and get colorful bedsheets.
