You are in a store with your 8 year old son. He sees something with 69 on it and says that "69 is my favorite number" and then says "I love 69!" loudly several times. Would you be embarrassed? What would you do?

Some kid did this when I was in the craft store today and I couldn't stop laughing.

i just saw a playtex bra commercial....

what size breasts do you consider to be "big"?
and are what you consider to be "big" boobs, bigger than average? what's average?

if you are a girl, would you describe your breasts as an apple, orange, grapefruit or melon sized? edit: i guess answer this as in, when they are in your hands, the size are most comparable to...)(this stems from perhaps a movie preview? something i saw on tv at any rate.)

i ask this because the playtex bras always seems so unattractive to me. and i guess they market towards big/large breast women. which then made me wonder, what is the cutoff? and can a woman with larger breasts find a good/supportive bra that doesn't look matronly? perhaps just one that isn't made by playtex.

Inspired by king_ink_9 's post, where is the best hostel you've ever stayed in? The worst? Did you have any apprehension about staying in one?

I've only every stayed in one. It was in Berlin, and it was very nice. My only worry was that the sheets were going to have bed bugs in them. A teacher of mine had told me that she was backpacking through Europe, and one of the hostels she stayed in in Austria, I think, and the sheets they provided were infested with bed bugs, which was made a million times worse because she's highly allergic to bug bites, so her legs and arms were cooooovered in hives. She took the earliest flight back to Canada the next day.

Help me do my back-to-school clothes shopping!

How tacky would it be to wear a halter style dress with a regular bra? I can't go bra-less, I find it uncomfortable and my boobs are too big for that, and I don't own any halter bras. Could I get one relatively cheap for a C cup? I just love this dress so much and want it to work somehow. Also what kind of shoes would I buy for something like that? Wedges? Would flip flops work?

Is this dress pretty or ridiculous? I kind of like it in purple, but I can't decide if I'd look stupid or not.

Where can I get cute and decent clothes for fairly cheap? I'm on a bit of a budget [in the $300-400 range], but I need more clothes.

I'm wearing my favourite pyjamas tonight and they make me happy. What are your favourite pyjamas, TQC? Post a picture if you can.

Cats pawing at mommy's face

3am tldr please validate me post

I live in Portland, OR, where it was 107 today. Like 85% of the residents of this city, I have absolutely no air conditioning, and no swamp cooler, etc. Because I have 7 windows that face south and west, my apartment is like an oven. A brick oven, notably. My cats have been wiped down with wet washcloths like, 8 times today, and had water poured on them in the tub several more times. Whenever the older one dried off in the living room, he'd begin to pant again.

It's 3AM, and it's something like, 85 or warmer in the main parts of my house (kitchen, bedroom, living room, hallways) I have a Poor Man's Swamp Cooler and a fan pulling in outside air (about 10 degrees cooler than it is inside the majority of the house)

Am I a terrible cat mother if I keep the cats in the bathroom (ie, the only room in the house below 80) overnight? I've never confined them to a room for longer than an hour or two while maintenance came over. They have water, a box, food... The younger one is sleeping, something I haven't seen him do since I got home from work at 3. The older one is breathing calmly, finally. The tile is cool for them to lay on, and they have water to play in if they choose.

Leaving them in here is the nicest choice, right?

Are there any old songs that creep you out major?

ie "Sleepwalk" by Santo & Johnny because of the way it was used in 'Sleepwalkers".

On the way to work this morning I was sitting at a stop light on the highway when someone came so close to rear ending me that they had to slam on their brakes and swerve into the turn lane next to me. They stopped level with my drivers side door. Eeek.

TQC, what was this person doing that they didn't notice me stopped at the glaringly red light?

My poison ivy is still spreading and I am out of predinisone (they gave me 5 days of it when my entire leg was covered). I have stopped itching for the most part, and the only time I do is when I am in serious pain because of it or apparently when I am sleeping (I woke up this morning to me scratching).
Should I call my doctor for more prednisone? Should I just suck it up and see how long it takes to go away? I've never had poison ivy, so idk if this is just normal procedure or what
The back of my leg where I got poison ivy first is gone, but now the whole front of my legs are swelling up with little welts.

Also, I am terrified of getting a plan. Spent the last two years happy with pay-as-you-go tickets from vending kiosks.

i know i just posted. sorry.

i just ran laps up and down my stairs for 10 minutes. i wanted to do 15 minutes, but i felt light-headed so i stopped. my active heart rate ended up being 155 bmp. it is now 20 minutes later and my body hasn't quite restored to normal yet. i am physically fit, but i know my heart is not.

how bad would you say my heart health is based on this information? do you have any feedback for me?

My two-year-old brother decided to channel his inner artist and has covered my dad's light tan suede furniture in black permanent marker. HOW DO I GET IT OFF???

Interview Woe!

I have a job interview today with a local college for a recruiter position. However I *think* the person that contacted me to do the interview wants to hire me for another position. This other position though is something that I don't want at ALL - I really want the recruiter position.

If my suspicions are confirmed, should I say something to the person interviewing me? If so, what's the best way to bring up the subject? D:

(and yes, I know I should be grateful to take any position given the still sour state of the economy, so IDK. >/)

ETA: for the blackheads one, instead of pop I meant squeeeeeze

So what do you do?

I pop all pimples, even if they're blackheads, even if they're tiny but definitely when they're huge and nasty.
I only pop them when they're huge and nasty.
I never pop them. I let them hang on my face even if they look like white-capped red mountains.
I don't get zits and I need the witness protection program now before Jilicious comes to kill me.
I CAN'T pop them even if I try, they're always those deep-tissue ones. :(
I only pop blackheads, I don't get whiteheads.
You haven't even come CLOSE. I will discuss this in lengthy detail in comments.

Dear migraine suffers of TQC, I get migraines a couple times a month. As far as migraines go, they are not completely awful but usually stop me from what I'm doing. They are also accompanied by terrible nausea (this I usually can't stand more than the headache). On all occasions I take Excedrin Migraine and feel a ton better, both headache and nausea wise. Recently, the nausea that accompanies my headaches has gotten MUCH worse and now they are also accompanied by hot flashes and me sweating a ton (and I don't get hot/sweat very much!). The Excedrin takes care of my headache still (mostly... I kind of still have some headache leftover) but not the nausea and hot flashes.

Are there any suggestions for helping the non-headache symptoms?

My dad thinks I am a nazi (supporter)?

My dad sent me this link this morning.
Of note, he is a very conservative republican and I'm more of a conservative independent. I sway to the left on some issues and to the right on others.
I assume my dad sent me this link because I voted for Obama.

I got about 30 seconds into the video. (For linkaphobics, the youtube video is titled "Hail Hilter, Hail Obama".)

Does my dad think I'm a nazi?
Not going to lie, I actually feel pretty hurt about this, despite knowing that my dad likes to "joke" like this.

Would you be hurt?

Does it bother you when people take something and compare it to Hitler, the nazis, the Holocaust?

My boyfriend and I looked at a really great duplex with water front views, drug free neighborhood, and biking distance from my work. Two bed, one bath, new appliances, 1008 sq feet, and new washer and dryer for only $800 a month. The problem is that the lease is month to month. What are the pros and cons to a month to month lease? I wanted at least a six month lease, but the place is beautiful and in our price range.

 Any advice about studying abroad?


And, while I was in Berlin, I was walking through a park and BAM! out in the open, there was a naked man, lying on top of a girl. She was fully clothed, but he was completely un-clothed, and very hairy. They seemed pretty young, and they both stayed pretty still - and they weren't sleeping. I have no idea what they were doing, so what do you think?

Which option would you go for?

How much vacation time (or sick time, paid time off, or whatever you want to call it) do you get at your job?
128 hours per year...why we get that extra day over 4 weeks, no one knows

Do you use it as quickly (or almost) as you get it, or do you save it up for big things?
I tend to save it up for trips, like next week's honeymoon trip and December's family vacation to the mountains.

How much do you have available right now?
As of today's payroll, 65.94 hours.

If you don't know/don't care/don't get any, where will you're next out-of-the-city-you-live-in trip be?

He did express he had a girlfriend but I just figured its nice to meet  new people and make new friends. I am kind of curious what he is up too, do you think I should forget it or go for it?

Erg. I was dumb, and didn't save what I was working on in Microsoft Word. It's an ongoing file, and has been saved before, but I started writing in it again and didn't save the new stuff. The computer did an automatic restart while I was gone (something about updates being done), and for some reason didn't seem to auto-save in the file the new things I'd written (about five pages worth, so I'm pretty upset about that). Is that new writing gone for good, or is there somewhere else, buried deep in the computer (a Compaq Presario CQ60, nothing fancy) where I could possibly find it again?

Also: why does my auto-save seem to hate me, sometimes? Ugh.

One of my friends has glandular fever (aka, as I understand it, mono). He was that ill with it that he spent last Saturday night in the hospital, but is feeling much better now and has invited me over for dinner over the weekend. Given that I don't really want to get what he has (primarily because I have a big overseas trip coming up in a week and a half and don't want to be sick and fatigued the whole time, especially in a country that may not have proper medical care), would I be best to say ,'thanks but no thanks, see you when I get back', or can I safely go visit without worrying about catching it? Holy run-on sentence, Batman.

Wikipedia says that mono is spread via. saliva, and I don't plan on swapping any with him; but it doesn't mention whether or not you can catch it just by being around a person and breathing the same air.

If you won the lottery (say, 20 million dollars USD) would you feel obligated to share some of your winnings with extended family (not parents or siblings)?

If a relative of yours won 20 million dollars, would you be pissed if they didn't share any with you?

Have you ever seen Drum Corps International? Did you like it?

We got roped into going with my inlaws tonight. It was ok, but ended at 10;15, which put us home later than I'd want to admit for a gigantic marching band show, lol.

What time do restaurants close in your area on weekdays?

We couldn't find anything but one sports bar open at 11 without driving into DC. Gross.

ETA; what's the last entry you posted to TQC? Link plz.


I drink a lot of water.

But, I know people that pretty much live off of soda/juice/Koolaid/ and at the very least flavored water.
Like.. they just can't stand water for some reason...

Do you enjoy drinking water?
Or are you the type that wont drink something unless it is flavored?
