I've got something like $235 in the bank, and another $50ish in cash.
How should I use my money? I can't spend everything in the bank, so the TV will have to wait until atleast next week when my next paycheck gets put in there for some cushion money.
Also, on the subject of TVs since it's apparently TV night on TQC, I'm looking for a flat one, around 22" or so. Where do you think I can get the best deal [in-store, preferably. I like to buy these things in person]? I have no brand loyalties, I just wanna get a decent TV for my money.
How do you differntiate between the feelings of love and lust?
What turns you off about the opposite sex?
One of my sorta bosses was on the Colbert Report today. The part about ACORN. HOLY MOTHERFUCKING SHIT. I nearly peed myself.
Also, even funnier because she was on the Daily Show a couple months back and she didn't realize it was satire. Now she does, so it's even better.
Also, poll: I have a poster that came in a copy of Mojo magazine years and years and years ago. On one side is the White Stripes, on the other, the MC5. WHICH SIDE DO I CHOOSE TO HANG UP?

I'm looking at local boarding facilities and for two dogs, they start around $42/night, so I was thinking of saying $25/day. Does that seem fair to you, for two dogs? I will be staying in their house.

Here are the sites I've found that kind of offer what's I'm going for:
Do you use any of them or anything similar to track your movies?
Since you guys are a fairly creative bunch I thought I would see if you had any other fun ideas.
So TQC, can you suggest some games to help make the lunch period more fun?
Thank you in advance!
I tell Scuffy I've been listening to the hardest, heaviest, meanest music I own for the last several days so that when I get in one of those tough spots, that will be running through my head. And it's true...a steady stream of Motorhead, Ministry, Metallica, Iggy and the Stooges, Tool, etc were my internal soundtrack on this thing.
Does this work for you? Does music help you grit your teeth and get it done? What kind of music?

Okay, here's my recollection of things, maybe you guys will be able to sort it out better than I. My friend dropped me off at night, I told my stoned ass to take my bike off her rack and keep my book in my hand, but I might not have listened. Btw, my stoned ass subjected said book to water damage and that's why it was in my hand and not my bag. (Canvas bag got wet from friend's floor mat - it had rained, water soaked through to my book.) I took my bike through the back yard, the back door, all through the house, and to the garage. I think I left my bike at the door and dumped my belongings inside before taking it in. My bag, the CD my friend returned to me, and the totally awesome unicorn plaque she gifted me are all in my room. I am afraid that I might have set it down outside and now it's trash somewhere. :( BUT I DIDN'T DO THAT RIGHT GUYS?
What kinds of donuts do you like?
I tend to avoid movie versions of things I'm a big fan of, because they tend to make the good parts bland...

ETA another unrelated question since no one else is posting gdi:
I told my brother I'd give him $10 if he did the dishes. I actually had $10 when I told him this. The restaurant where I ate lunch had a broken credit card machine, so I had to pay in cash, so now I have $2. So I guess my question is, how annoying is it to be paid in spare change?
Why doesn't the store I bought my vacuum from have bags to fit it? They still carry the same machine!

Sorry! To clarify: I'd hold the laptop in the sleeve in my hand and then just use the purse as a purse as well as using it to carry my school stuff.

Would you consider keeping it a secret, or shout it from the rooftops?
So, TQC, what's your favorite flavor of Life Savers?
Which movie should I rent tonight?
Why does it take a minimum of 15 minutes to fill a prescription? It seems as though this is the amount of time that you're required to wait.

What are the best websites for uploading digital photos and having them made into prints on “real” photo paper? The kind that’s slightly bumpy, not glossy? I’m going through photographs, sorting them into albums, and finding I have dozens of my first son, but none of my second son because we went digital before he was born. This sucks. What sucks more? I lost most of the photos of my second son when I killed my HD a few months ago. Thankfully a lot of them are already uploaded to LJ and FB and such.
So, anyway, who prints out the best photos? I don’t want to print them out myself because I don’t like the quality of the printers we currently own.
What do you think? Is this a fair exchange?

TALK ON THE PHONE. When anybody calls my house, all they say is "Hello, is so-and-so there?" without introducing themselves. I hate that. that forces me to ask them who they are, which I usually don't do because I like to spend as little time as possible talking to people over the phone, and so whenever whoever they're calling for picks up the phone, they first ask me who it is who's called, and I don't know.
That was a very long and rambly sentence.

I have a problem. In a few weeks I will be graduating from college and moving back home to live with my grandmother (who raised me) for a while. My plan is to find a decent job and pay off most of my loans, while helping out my gram and living rent free. I'm 22, and it is becoming increasingly more acceptable to move back home after college, especially due to the economy. My plan is to be out of there within a year or two though. I should also mention that I haven't lived at home full time since I was 12 because I went to a boarding school for high school, which was out of state, and I also went to an out of state college. And here's my issue:
I'm used to being independent. I don't ask anyone for permission, but now that I'm living with my gram, she's going to try and control me. Other than the obvious (respecting her by not drinking in her house, no bringing guys over, and other "duhs" that you don't do with parents), how much control should she reasonably be able to have over me? Should I have to follow a curfew? Is it reasonable for her to tell me not to sleep over people's houses, especially a boyfriend's? Is there a way to explain to her gently what rules I will and will not follow?
Also, how old is too old to be living at home? I want to be out of there by 24ish, but she's already flipped out on me when I mentioned this. She said that living with your parents is better than living with a roommate, and that it is an unnecessary expense. As far as I see it, you're labeled a loser if you live with your parents for too long. Plus, that can be really detrimental to a romantic relationship. Isn't it bad to be living with your mom up until marriage?
In addition to all of this, she uses this excuse that people my age aren't really adults yet, because their brain isn't fully developed, and therefore I am still a child. Idk... she saw it on TV or something. It pisses me off to no end. I'm just really frustrated and don't know how to deal with someone telling me what to do, after I've gone so long generally making my own decisions. It doesn't help that she is very conservative and I am very liberal. Help!?!?
(Sorry so long!)

I think being the spokesmodel for Palmer's Cocoa Butter Stretchmark Cream is a big one.
a) get over it
b) eat crackers the person who ate the ham needs for her lunch tommorow?
Cause that's exactly what my brother did, or so I thought cause he said he did when I woke him up this morning looking for them, then I came to find out he had locked them in a desk drawer and is holding them hostage till he gets ham.
My question is--what the fuck? I hope that is an acceptable and legit question.
