I found this thing in my spare room. I'm pretty sure my mom made it. Collapse )

What should I make with that fabric in the background? I have a decent amount of it. I was going to make a tote bag for school but I think it would be really hideous/obnoxious.

Very last minute and completely at the worst time possible - I need to pull an all nighter. Any tips on how to stay awake? I've just had my 4th meal for energy (thank heavens for Taco Bell) and I've downed a Red Bull and a Coke. I have another Red bull for later, and a supply of coffee. I'm still exhausted though. Any other ideas?


Dearest TQC,

I have a dilema. Tuesday is my first day of school, and I need to know what to wear. I know I'm wearing this dress, but I don't know if I wanna wear them with these shoes. Is it too matchy-matchy? Should I just go out to Marshalls and buy new shoes?


And ignore me looking ridiculous if you can.

Edited because I fucked the links up.

Can someone tell me what I am doing wrong?

I just uploaded a video on youtube about ten minutes ago. I already had one there from a few weeks back. However, when I look on the page now, only the video from ten minutes ago shows up on the page. The other video is gone. And the sites says I have only uploaded on video. However, when I look at my uploaded video section, the missing video is there.

Edit: Never mind. I fixed it. Thank you for your help.

1. So, if you watched True Blood tonight on a scale of 1 to 10, how stupid do you think Tara was?

2. If you don't watch True Blood, say that there is a monster on the loose, like a demon or a Cloverfield monster, and you are in relative safety. However, your SO is back in the monster's territory. And you don't even know if he/she is alive or not. Would you risk your neck to save someone who is most likely dead or doomed?

My boyfriend fell asleep in the middle of an argument with the phone to his ear. I'm mad, can't sleep and feeling sort of mean.

Should I call and let it ring in his ear and finish the argument (yes) or should I just sleep on it (no)?

Do you let your pets sleep in the bed with you?

My wife is in a blue funk, and it's likely that she's going to stay that way until she gets a computer desk for her "office". Where should we go tonight to look for a desk? (DO NOT say IKEA. A) I'm sick of hearing about how great it is, and B) the closest one is 8 hours away.)

1. Should I upgrade my Flickr or my Photobucket? I have no qualms about transferring files from one account to the other, as both are fairly new, but I'm not sure of the pros/cons of either service anymore. I feel like Photobucket Pro used to be much more expensive but now they're exactly the same price, and they seem to both have their own individual perks. I hear Flickr allows nudie pics also.

TQC , if you had to do a project for college and you were faced with two project options, one being a topic that you couldn't care less about but that was easy to gather information on, and one being a topic you were really interested in but would be quite difficult to find resources for, which would you take?

Also, what's for lunch?

How much are you willing to compromise for a job? Sell your soul to the devil, figuratively speaking? Give up things that are important to you? ie. spending time with your boyfriend and/or family. Would you take a pay cut? Would you work any kind of job?

A job is a job, but what are deal breakers for you? or would you pretty much do anything as long as you were paid for it?

I was debating leaving my current part-time cashier/customer service position at a grocery store for a cake decorating position with the same company but different store. It would be a blast, but I'd have to give up my Sunday's off and pretty much any availability conflicts I have, which means I would be giving up the only day I really get to see my boyfriend. We spend the whole day together and do dinner at my parents/my house. We've been doing this for about a 1 1/2 years and I don't know if I'm willing to give that up for another part-time job(which I thought was going to be full-time). I don't think its worth compromising. Also, I don't know how flexible they'd be when I go to grad school next summer, if I get in. Since I'd be one of 2 decorators, I doubt they'd be as flexible.

Do you know EXACTLY how much money you have in the bank?

How often do you balance your checkbook?

How ****ing frustrating is it when you're only a few dollars off, you know you spent that money, but you can't for the life of you remember where...leaving you to wait 'til it shows up on your bank statement before you can balance everything?

Or am I just being OCD about this?

If you had to choose one of the typical "I want to be a _____ when I grow up" jobs, would you rather be a:
A) Pilot
B) Astronaut
C) Professional athlete
D) Fire fighter

I'm really into little rodents (mostly hamsters and mice, gerbils freak me out; I've had some since I was in grade four) and I was wondering, what's it like to have pets in university (in res)? I'm moving in in the fall of 2010 so it's a while away. I'd keep him/her in my cage in my room. My sister had a friend who had a hamster and snuck him in for an entire semester.

But good idea/bad idea?
If it gets too loud, then I absolutely wouldn't do it, but I'm just wondering.

My boyfriend is in the hospital! He didn't feel well last night and he woke up in the middle of the night and he was blind! He couldn't see anything! His parents had to call 911 and now he's sedated at the hospital and I don't know what's going on! He's 400 miles away and I just called his mom but she didn't answer her cell phone.

I am freaking out. What do I do now?! 

EDIT: My boyfriend's mother just called me back! They think it's because he got crazy dehydrated and his sodium levels dropped dramatically because he's a fucking moron and went on a four hour long hike through the California desert in August during a heat wave and didn't bring any water!

But he's gotten significantly better in just the past three hours and they think they'll be able to release him tomorrow. I asked if I should fly down, but his mom said that since he's probably going to be released tomorrow and I was going to fly down on Friday anyway for our monthly visit, I should just wait until then.

I am so relieved and at the same time so irrationally furious with my boyfriend.

What's wrong with this statement?

"If more Americans go on a low-carb diet, the demand for bread will fall, resulting in the price of bread to fall. However, the lower price of bread will increase bread's demand, so Americans will end up eating more bread than before."

My friend is convinced this is right, how do I convince him it's not?

TQC (ladies, specifically),

I have an hour 'til I get to go home from work.
I'm horny.
My wife is at home.

What would be the best way to phrase a text to get the point across that she'd better be ready for me to do all kinds of dirty things to her when I get home? Something that'll motivate her to be in some lingerie and high heels when I walk through the door?

I just got shot down worse than I have since high school.  Crash and burn in a giant fireball.

So, since I still have to have a question here...umm...would you like fries with that?

TQC, I donated blood this morning! But it made me feel icky and dizzy and vomity afterward. I'm feeling fine now, just tired.

Should I call off work?

If I don't call off work, what shall be my energizing snack before I go in?

Do you have any interesting bandaids? I have Scooby-Doo bandaids in the bathroom. Right now I'm wearing one with a local hospital's emblem.

Does it drive you crazy to listen to somebody eating and chewing with their mouth opened? My roommate smacks, gulps, chews and pops her mouth, chomping and glomping like some kind of animal every time she eats something. This disgusts me so much I usually retreat to my room because I can't stand the noises she makes.
Does anyone else get grossed out by that eating style? It just drives me up a wall, like nails on a chalkboard.

What's the one thing in life you have inconceivably bad luck with?

Mine is technology, and it getting broken. I can't tell you how many electronics when in my hands stop working. It's probably a bit of me being clumsy, but it's not SO BAD that EVERYTHING stops working because of it.

For instance, my year old macbook? I thought it was all good until three months ago when, right after another: keyboard gets hot tea spilled on it, screen inexplicably gets plagued with lines of dead pixels, the CD drive becomes jammed, and just today the battery decides to say "oh, fuck it." and stop working. I'm stunned my iPhone has lived as long as it has unscathed (though it spent a month or two lost at UCLA).


So I posted a question last week about me organizing a Multicultural event at the college I work at.

Last week I was instructed to invite 80 people to lunch. The room we have set up for lunch will only hold 80 people.

So why the fuck did my bosses inform me today that I'll be inviting another 420 people!?!?

Yes, you read that right. 500 people have been invited to this luncheon. 394 of the new 420 are on a mailing list and she doesn't think that more than 20 or so will show up.

That's not the fucking point. She is having me invite more people than we have the room for and we sure as hell don't have an extra $5,000 in the budget to pay for these people if they do show up.

She also knew the room was full to capacity with the 80 I invited. So I had to go back to another boss and the scheduling woman and rearrange a couple of presentations so we could open up the room next to where the luncheon is so we can accommodate 160 people.

Totally dumb question, but: I want to make a raspberry smoothie and all the recipes I'm looking at require plain or vanilla yogurt. I don't have plain--I have blueberry, blackberry pomegranate, and pear. Can I just use say, blueberry, and just have have a 'mixed berry' smoothie? Or will it not turn out like I'm hoping? I know nothing about smoothies, sorry. :( 

What's your favorite flavor of smoothie? Any awesome recipes you have?

If you call a friend and they don't answer, do you leave a voicemail? Or do you hang up and either try again later or send a text?

I don't leave voicemails if it's not important, but I have a couple friends who never leave them and like to hang up and send texts instead, which I don't really understand. It's gotten to the point of one calling, leaving me an accidental vm of voices in the background that ended with "oh shit, I'm on her voicemail", hanging up, and sending a text. wat??

My upstairs neighbor is a mid-20's military dude from Tennessee. He normally listens to country and bad rock(Creed, for example).
Why, oh why, is he listening to Jingle Bell Rock really loud?

Edit - Now it sounds like he's watching a shoot-em-up war movie, or playing a similar game. Is there a movie or game that would have that song in it?

Edit2- I was trying to find the best place in my apartment to climb up on a chair and try and listen to the ceiling, but now he's shadow boxing, and all i can hear is him jumping around.

This was inspired by a forum discussion of some atheists making fun of Christians for believing in a God but turning around and saying they believe in spirits.

1. How do you feel about atheists who say they don't believe in god/gods but they do believe in supernatural things like ghosts, spirits and reincarnation?

Do you consider them atheists or agnostics?

Do you see an atheist as someone who believes in pure scientific logic, that is, it must be proven by data before I can believe it or can atheist believe in anything as long as he/she doesn't believe in a god/gods?
