I was supposed to go to a concert tonight but it got canceled due to the venue having no power. Any of you guys been in a situation like that? I don't think the show is being rescheduled, so what are the chances of me getting my $23.75 back? I'd call Ticketmaster and ask them but it's after midnight. Oh, and the show isn't even on Ticketmaster's list of canceled/postponed shows, wtf!?

TQC, I feel like I always (or way too often) ask questions about your pets, but I'm going to ask more.

Will you post a picture of your pet and tell us why you looooooooooooooove them????? Will you tell us a story about why your pet is so great/awesome/fantastic or mischievous/demonic/out to get you?

I don't have any pets, so I'd like to live vicariously through you guys, please.

EDIT: What is your pet's name???

Help me, TQC. You're not my only hope, but I'd appreciate some opinions.

I'm getting my hair cut within the next few weeks, so it's nice when I go back to school. I wanna change it up a bit, but I don't know how. I can't change my part or get proper bangs of any kind because I have a ridiculous cowlick right at my forehead. I've tried, and it just kinda puffed and fell back where it was. I've been just getting a couple simple layers, and some shorter pieces at the front to kind of help frame my face. But I wanna do something different. I've always wanted to cut it short, but all the short hairstyles I've looked at aren't possible for me, and I'm a little bit of an egghead so I'm afraid having my hair too short will just emphasize it. Am I being ridiculous? What should I do with my hair?

If I can find a picture of my current hair that will help on my harddrive, I will edit it in.

After reading this article, I have some questions...

Is the Republican party capable of discussing the issues these days or have they disintegrated into a bunch of meeting-disrupting whiners who can only yell and be disruptive? And why, when when someone asks them about their political affiliation, have they taken to denying that they are Republicans? Do they actually think they are fooling people as their political motivations?

Instead of heckling and otherwise disrupting meetings, why can't Republicans politely participate in the debate process? Are there any intelligent, coherent Republicans left or did Bush/Palin run them all off?

Do you think they actually have a coherent argument against single-payer healthcare or are they just being anti-anything-Obama?

ETA: I have to go run an errand for my kid. I will be back to read the answers. I am not being anti-Republican. I'm just frustrated with the niose the rabble-rousers are making. I want to hear details on how the Republicans address the insurance issue. I feel the noisy people are making that hard for me. I prefer hearing more sides to an issue.

My puppydog is not feeling well and has diarrheaed all over the floor off-white carpet twice this morning so far, and she won't go when I take her outside. :( I put her in her kennel to take a nap for a little while, partially because I don't want her to go on the carpet again. Have you ever used those house-training pads with any success? I have a bunch left from when I house-trained her last year which we never ended up using, and I don't want to coop her up all day OR have to clean up her poop every other hour. :(

does anyone know where i can get some good bandaging tape? you know, like Walgreens or something.

i have some scar tissue on the tip of my right middle finger that hurts like a goddamn bitch when it gets hit with any kind of force. so i bought some first aid tape at Target to tape it up while i'm downstairs packing up my storage locker and lugging things around. only this tape is like, fabric or paper or something IDK and it really sucks. it's super thin and isn't going to help shit but it was all they had.

also, does anyone have any other/better suggestions for keeping it protected when i'm doing stuff? i'm always smacking it on the bus and stuff and uggggh.

When you run a bath, do you like to get in when it's empty and play around as the water fills up, or do you do it like in the movies where you draw a full bath and turn off the water before you get in?

I do it the first way. I really savor the feeling of hot water slowly creeping up over my body, especially in the winter when I'm very cold.

Hi TQC.

I was in a store today (Fred Meyers) and when I cam out to my car I saw that the back bumper had been hit by, I assume, someone backing out of their spot. No one saw anything at all. I asked Fred Meyers if they would review the surveillance tapes and they said only if i had a police report.

So I thought, no problem, but as it turns out, with something as small as this a police report is a pain in the butt:

Its going to take At Lease 45 days.
There is a fee in order to obtain a copy to give to Fred Meyers.
and there is a chance I will only be able to file a complaint, which apparently is different somehow and not good enough for Fred Meyers.

What should I do, anything? Is it just a "Shit, Life happens" thing is there another course of action I can take? :(

is it gonna be weird if i do? he's a super chill, chatty guy, so he's not reserved or anything, so i'm thinking he might not flip but i don't know.

Please only answer this if you know what you're talking about... I understand maybe nobody does but I'm worried.

I have 3 foster kittens in my rescue right now that are 3 weeks old.. I've never personally fostered ORPHANS this young before.. as in, they can't poop for themselves.

I feed them every 4-6 hours, KMR.  I "poop them" with a warm damp cloth about 3 times a day.. around meals ... but they don't go every time.  Each one poops AT LEAST once a day.. sometimes twice.. but never more than that.  But they do poop every single day.  They are 3 1/2 weeks and otherwise seem very healthy.  Is this enough pooping?

Should I buy or rent my next batch of schoolbooks? My next batch is mostly gen eds with no science requirements.

Do you buy your textbooks? Rent them? Photocopy them along with a willing accomplice? Any other options?

If you have one, what do you do when you hang out with your SO? I need ideas, pretty desperately. We've got the eating/rent a movie/cuddle/make out thing down pretty well. I need something else to do with him.
Keep in mind we live in a pretty small area. We have beaches, a nice downtown area in the next town over and... that's about it. Suggestions?
Also preferably cheap/free activities.

If you caught your teenage kids smoking pot, would you care? What would you say to them, if anything?

I'd probably prefer that illegal substances weren't kept in my home, but I wouldn't be very upset about my kids smoking, especially if they had jobs and were paying for it themselves, and if they were doing well in school and the pot wasn't affecting their lives in a negative way.

What's the longest you've gone without a shower and why? 
I went a week and a half once without taking a shower. I had mono and was too sick to get off the couch, seriously.

How long can you go without washing your hair before it looks disgusting? 
Two days.

Are there any examples of a place or three where the official names for things/places/etc of import are dual language? That is, on any formal documents (such as maps, etc) it must have the names from both languages?

Even better if there's any with more. I'm also interested in places where it may not be official, but is very common to see/hear both versions used.

This is from an assignment, but isn't for the assignment itself; I don't actually need the information, but a statement from someone in one of the articles I read made me wonder. I'm just analyzing differences between two articles about the same thing, but a quote in them was, "Where else could you go in the world and the locals have actually two names for everywhere?" I can't help thinking, "Umm, surely quite a few, we're not exactly the only multicultural society in the world?"

When was the first time you travelled alone? Where did you go? Did you enjoy it?

I leave tomorrow morning for a three-week trip through Asia by myself. I'm looking forward to it but I'm really nervous, worried that I'll get homesick and that I won't enjoy myself because of that. Can you tell me anything that you think might make me feel better? Or do I just have to suck it up and hope I don't hate the whole experience?

Do you like any mythological creatures? Which ones, and why?

I used to like vampires. I read the Vampire Chronicles when I was 14/15 and even had a shirt saying "I'd rather be a vampire" and my informative speech in Forensics was about vampires. But now Anne Rice is considered a psychopath and Twilight has taken over the vampire franchise so those days are pretty much over.

Will you tell me about the last time your family completely embarrassed you?

Today was my Dad's birthday and we had a big family party. Being that my boyfriend's parents are in town for the first time, we invited them to meet everyone.   My aunt showed up completely wasted to the party and decided telling my boyfriend's parents that my former uncle is now a woman and how she want to 3 some with him/her would be a great way to break the news to the entire family.   I was so mortified.

In which medium is it most depressing when characters die? Movies, television shows, books, etc?

Definitely books, I think. In movies and tv you know that the individual did not, in fact, die, and this is especially confirmed when you see that actor in another production, but in books- where the character exists as a real person, at least in your imagination- they really do die. That book and that death really is the end of them, if you know what I mean.

When were you able to go out again?
