What would you have done if you knew you could? (by "could", I mean-  the person would have allowed you to, no one would judge you, etc. )



I would have played cards with that old man I saw in a bookstore today, playing cards by himself for hours.

If i had known he would have let me, I would have asked to join him.

Okay, I'm trying to get cheaper textbooks (lol 4 classes and two labs = $722.73 from the bookstore), and I need to know: how much of a difference can I expect between editions? (I can get 2nd edition for $1.00 + shipping. 3rd is $75) I know they'll change the chapters around, make them go in different orders, etc, but will they change the actual content (such as the numbers in the math problems, etc)? Halp plz.

What's the most you ever spent on books?

My school's bookstore sells books as bundles exclusively. If you unwrap your bundle (even if the books are in tact, etc) you can't return it. The bundle it with something covering the actual book's ISBN. Highway robbers, y/y?

What the hell else do I need to get for when I move back to school? If you're looking to give a srs answer, I have an ongoing list on my LJ, I think that entry's public. But any answers are welcome.

Do you have an aversion to any food for any reason? For example, you threw it up once and haven't touched it since or something? Chocolatey breakfast items have been a no-no for me since first grade because I used to get car sick real easy, and I threw up my Coca Puffs on my desk. :( [/TMI]

My dog has Kennel Cough.

It being Saturday night/early Sunday morning I can't get him to the vet until Monday (which I will do at 9am on Monday morning). I'm not paying to get the e-vet out for a non-emergency.

It's breaking my hear to see him hacking away though. Is there anything I can do to make him more comfortable?

It's been suggested I give him cough syrup. Is there particular types/brands of cough syrup that I should use (or, equally, avoid)? I'm in the UK...

Thanks!

Have a picture!



And, yes, I really will get him to a real life vet FIRST THING on Monday morning. I just want to help him until then.

 Do you feel like it's normal and natural to have 'naughty fun' with your girlfriends (if you're a girl)?

For instance, is it easy for 'normal' boundaries to merge, to the point where you find yourself kissing each other or touching each other in places that would not be considered 'appropriate' by 'normal' standards, and yet it feels completely natural and there is no air of intense, suffocating sexual-ness, it just feels like a natural sort of extension of your love?

Also if you're curious, I ended up going to the engagement party, and I was so livid that the ex had the nerve to call me a bitch, I pushed her scrawny ass, knocked over a table which broke a bunch of champagne glasses, after I pulled out her weave and threw her baby down the stairs. She tried to strangle me, and I clocked her unconscious. Then she got abducted by aliens in District 9. My future in-laws probably think I'm awful.

What's the last thing you did that made you happy?

I just quit my job. As odd as that sounds, I'm free from coworkers and managers who treated me like absolute shit, and I'm free from a job that stressed me out to the point of tears constantly. I feel like a huge weight was lifted off my shoulders. I know I won't be able to do much as far as going out/hanging out with friends/whatever until my CNA class starts in a month (I get paid while in class), but next month's bills will be covered by my last paycheck, so I'm not terribly worried.

For example, I worked for a physical therapist, and the amount of women I saw with osteoporosis-related fractures terrified me, especially because I have so many risk factors (and I'm only 26).  I now force myself to eat as much calcium + vitamin D foods in a day as I can handle, even though I'm lactose intolerant and don't really like dairy.

Drying wet carpet [Aug. 16th, 2009|12:56 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[nephron]
Last night I returned home from work to find that my kitchen tap had turned itself on full bore, and was impossible to turn off except by switching the mains off. The tap is now fixed, but I have another problem.

I'd foolishly left the tap hovering over the benchtop rather than the sink, so water got everywhere. The kitchen was flooded, which wasn't so bad, but my carpeted dining room is also flooded- badly enough that when you stand on the carpet water pools around your feet.

I'm using all the towels in my house to try to absorb some of the water but I'm not getting very far very fast with that-my 6 or so towels used twice now don't seem to have made any noticeable difference.

Does anyone have any ideas as to how to dry this up? Thanks.

ETA: So, the key seems to be a wet vac, or a carpet cleaner?

[castawaycutout]
I grow my plants -only- in water, no soil. I buy the plants, clean off all the soil, and plop them into a container with water and some stones. This is pretty common; however, I've run into a problem! I've been putting my plants in the windowsill to get some sun and over the past few days it's been dropping. It's been hot and humid lately (86 degrees with 60% humidity). I also live on the second floor of a building, which doesn't help. Is the plant drooping just because of the humidity lately, or is the direct sunlight too much for it?

**EDIT** It's an ivy plant

I need TQC to settle an argument between me and my father.

My father is taking some medication for a prostate problem, and as a result, he peed on the recliner in his sleep. Yes, disgusting, I know. However, he thinks it's perfectly ok to do nothing about it. He says it's ok to sit on it once it dries. No cleaning or anything. Just put a towel or something down over it. He's sitting on it right NOW with nothing over it.

TQC, due to a knee problem, this particular recliner is the only place I can sleep since I cannot climb the stairs to go up to my bedroom. Would you sleep there? Do you think urine is ok once it dries?

The thought makes me want to throw up.

I'm looking to buy a macbook soon and I'm stuck between a macbook and a macbook pro. Other than the thousand dollars or more, what's the difference?

I'm an education student and I'll be using it mostly for school stuff, especially for an educational technology class that is taught on macs.

TQC, help me decide!

Last night when I had a Greek yogurt, I added coconut M&M's to it. It was so awesome I made a post here about it (I can't be arsed to find it though). Tonight I'm having yogurt again and I'm adding chocolate syrup to it. For a long while now I've wanted to try chili chocolate, I'm the kind of person that eats habaneros fresh or out of a jar like skittles, I love very hot things. This crazy thought of adding chili flakes to the chocolate syrup came to me.

Should I do this? I've never had chili chocolate, have you? Would adding the flakes to the chocolate even be remotely close to that?
Okay, bail!

So what odd combination of foods have you tried for dessert? Epic fail or epic success?

TQC, if you could take any course in college just for the hell of it, what would you take?

Right now my priority is to take the last 3 classes that would give me an Administrative Assistant degree, but after that, I don't know what I should take!

I was browsing through the Continuing Education course catalog and I found out that someone actually teaches a class called "What is Twitter and How Do I Tweat?". It costs $20 and then there is a book for the class that is $17. Why would you need a book to learn how to use Twitter? I'm surprised that a book like that exists.

There is also a class called "Social Networking" that teaches you how to set up accounts for Myspace, Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking sites. It costs $76 to take.

WTF? I'm going to give it a couple of weeks and see if anyone is actually enrolled in either of the classes.

TQC, I really want to apply to be a student ambassador for my college. However, I've applied for every other "this is a fairly big on-campus position" position and been denied, and this is the most difficult thing to get accepted into on the entire campus. Should I try anyway and potentially complete my cycle of "I can't get accepted for shit on this campus" attempts, or just not even get into it because I'm likely going to not be accepted?

If you had a very bad job that lasted about two months off of your campus (bosses were assholes, your work was more than fine) and you were filling out a resume for an on-campus job, would you "forget" to add said job to your resume?

Hey, TQC. Long time no see.

How can I look up the history of my home? There have been odd goings on all my life, but they recently have strengthened, to the point where my animals are being affected, and I would like to see if I could figure out what this presence in my house wants.

Also, any idea how to pacify this thing long enough to figure out what it wants? Or how to at least keep it from possessing my dog? It gets angrier when I try basic methods. It got extremely angry when I removed mirrors from the walls. I also once brought in white sage and as soon as I stepped into the house I could not breathe. I don't want it to go away, per say, I just want it to leave me and my family alone. Or at least be civil and keep to itself instead of doing what it is doing.

Thanks in advance for any help on the subject.

I didn't know if maybe things had changed and if I should get some somewhere else to make sure I'd have them in time. I live in Atlanta, if it makes a difference.
