I just turned 22 half an hour ago! I'm going to my friend's house tomorrow to bake my birthday cake.

What kind of cake should I make? What kind of frosting/decorations should I use? I like everything except for carrot cake.

Unrelated to birthdays:

Other than taking your temperature (obv), how can you tell when YOU are getting sick/have a fever?

My eyeballs get really hot... they feel really weird against my eyelids. O.o And I also get out of breath REALLY easy, from doing simple normal everyday non-strenuous things. like talking on the phone. wtf.

I'm looking to buy a new digital camera. I don't want to spend more than $250, ideally, but that is flexible. I want it to take very clean pictures (specifically for the Britney Spears concert, ngl). I especially want it to be pale pink, to match my laptop. I'd also like it to be small and compact, so it can be easily concealed if necessary! Any brand/model suggestions? I've only ever had Kodaks, and have been quite pleased, but I can't find one I like there :\

Our cat Jareth is missing! D= All the doors and windows are closed so he couldn't have gone outside, but we can't find him anywhere! He usually spends all of his time on one of the couches. He's big and lazy and doesn't usually hide. We've looked all over several times! I'm worried about him because my husband just put flea medicine on him today, and what if it made him sick? Also he's blind in one eye and kind of dumb so he's not the kind of cat that can be left alone to explore strange places. WORRY WORRY

Have you ever had a cat get lost in your own home? Where were they hiding? How long were they missing for? Where the heck could Jareth have gone??

TQC, I'm a bit worried about my cat. He's almost 6 months old and he drinks an inordinate amount of water and he pees SO MUCH. Like, I am scooping mounds of dry pee litter out almost daily. Do you think there might be something wrong with his kidneys? Does he have the beetus? Or does he just really enjoy water (he especially likes ice in his water bowl)?

He also chirrups instead of meowing. Have you had a cat who does that? He's chasing his tail around the living room right now and he's generally a big ball of energy. He acts perfectly healthy otherwise. He eats good and he poops fine and he's super cute. Maybe I am worrying over nothing?

I enrolled in Psych Statistics and Psych Statistics Lab. I am not good at math at all (I missed five points on a twenty-five point quiz already and my professor said things wont look good for you if you cant do the easy stuff in this class well) and at this point I think I am going to change my major to graphic design because its pretty much more me. I am taking a ceramics class this semester and for some reason I didn't realize how much time I would have to devote to the class. For me to pass a math class is time-consuming enough... Math & Ceramics together are going to probably kill me.

My Dont-You-Dare-Drop-A-Class-You-Have-to-Have-The-Right-Amount-of-Hours Mom even said I could drop Psych Statistics (and take an easier general Stat summer class) even without me asking. The problem is I would have to drop the Stat Lab also, which would not only bring me down to 12 hours this semester, but these would make 4 total dropped classes on my transcript. Plus, two dropped classes in one semester cant look good, either.

I dropped 2 classes in back to back semesters, then took big course-loads the two semesters following that and did well both times without dropping anything. In one of those semesters, I re-took a class I dropped and did well that time.

Would dropping these classes look too bad?

(School just started- my school did away with Drop/Add, so I cant pick something else up. Drop date is around October)

How do I adjust to a set schedule? The whole summer, I have been going to bed at like, 5 am and waking up at 2 pm in the afternoon.

I started classes yesterday morning. I have to be there at 9:30 am on Monday & Wednesdays, and then I have a class at 4:10 on Tuesdays.

Since I don't have class until late on Tuesdays, I'm tempted to stay up late on Monday nights and sleep in. BUT, I probably should get on a schedule where I wake up/go to bed at the same time every night, yes? But how do I do it? I have pretty bad insomnia. D:

Foodage, foodage, foodage, foodage...

My wife can't cook to save her life, so those duties typically fall to me. I don't mind, though, as I love to cook. When I say she can't cook, I mean that quite literally. Two nights ago she tried to cook one of those Voila! skillet frozen meals...where you dump it in a skillet and heat it up. Yeah...she burned the shit out of it. I mean, come on, it doesn't get any easier than that.

Anyway, I always cook dinner, but I need to change my system. As is, I decide each day what to cook, and then have to go get the stuff to do it. I'd much rather have certain staples handy, so that I have enough stuff to make several different meals before going shopping again.


So, TQC, two questions:

1. What are some basic ingredients that should ALWAYS be kept on hand? Things that are very useful and can make lots of different dishes?

2. Will you please give me some of your favorite recipes? I want things that are relatively-healthy, involve vegetable (I love cooking with fresh veggies), and are kind of...ummm..."uncommon". I like new recipes...things like the korma recipe or jerk chicken recipe that I recently tried for the first time. Things that are from scratch are best.

I ride to work with a co-worker. She only lives a few blocks away from me (less than five), and while my place is not exactly on the way to work, it's not significantly out of her way either. This arrangement started yesterday and will hopefully continue for as long as I am with the organization.

If you don't know/don't care:

1) What is the most hilarious story you pull out to tell at parties or when meeting new people?

I like the one about my brother, who decided to sing "Dust in the Wind" in his elementary school talent show at age 5. He had Dad and a friend of the family on guitar and violin, respectively, and it was one of the most hilarious, awesome things I've ever watched.

2) Did you go to college? If so, where did you go and for how long?

Yep. I went to Georgia State for a year. Then I got engaged, bought a house, called off a wedding, and realized I should've ignored stupid boys and just finished school.

3) How is your day going so far? Anything interesting?

1. What is the most ignorant thing you've heard someone say today?

In my language and culture class we were talking about how different cultures have more words and phrases for things that are important to them than those that are not. For example, Inuits have more words and phrases to describe weather conditions whereas American's have a ridiculous amount of words to talk about money.

One girl in my class then said "So there aren't any words for money in Africa then? Hahaha"

So I got pulled over and got a ticket for speeding today (going 40 in a 30).

I don't know if I should just pay the ticket or not. They lasered me, so it's not like I can say "I wasn't going that fast!" if I head to court....

Anyway, what really happens if I have a speeding ticket on my traffic record? What does it impact? I also have a citation for "following too close," that I paid a few months ago... will this affect anything like my ease of getting insurance later? Will my current insurance go up?

I feel really dumb, but what really does having something on my traffic record mean?

Given the choice, which winery would you prefer for a birthday celebration? Time of year: Late September.

-30-35 miles away (though easy to get to). Dog friendly. Organic food cart visits on Saturdays, and they offer Sangria on Saturdays. Very pretty and in the mountains, but not much indoor seating if it rains. Guests can bring picnics if they prefer, to save money.

-10-15  miles away, very easy to get to. Not dog friendly. Great cafe with amazing food, and you can sit on gigantic plushy couches and enjoy your food. Less viable to bring a picnic.

Wines are similar quality and price at each place. Owners at both locations are very friendly and frequently offer personalized tours, etc.

Snacks for night shift.

I'm starting night shift on Wednesday, and I'm looking for advice on what to bring. I don't want to eat big gluggy meals, a steady stream of small snacks would probably work best.

So far on my list I have yoghurt, muesli bars, corn thins, fruit, small tins of fish for protein, pop tarts and crystallised ginger.

So, TQC, what else could I snack on during my night shift?

I need a new printer, as mine, when I dug it out of the closet yesterday, is so old that the drivers won't work on Windows XP. So, do any of you have a preferred brand of printer? Factors are cost, reliability, price of ink, etc.

which makes today third tuesday we've had the exact same plans, and she just bailed again. the reason? her boyfriend got fired today.

Hello TCQ!

My older bro's ex called my mother (we still don't know how she got her number) asking her to lend her $200 so that she can pay her rent (her hours were cut, to my understanding).

Both my brother and I told her not to do it, since said ex still owes my brother roughly the same amount and has no intentions on paying him back. She only comes around when she wants money.

TCQ, would you lend her the money?

Has anything disappointing happened to you today?
I found out that my financial aid office screwed up when they posted my work study, so I was actually awarded it at another campus and the campus where I'm going doesn't have anymore work study money available. :( It was so sad because I found a job on campus I really really wanted; I feel so mislead now. They got my hopes up.

my boyfriend used to buy games pretty often from his friend (let's call him A) because A worked at best buy. A would buy the game for my bf at a discount, but would get a kickback. So if a regular priced game was $100, he'd get it for $70, and sell it to my bf for $80. i'm wondering if it would be rude if I contacted him to do the same thing because my boyfriend's birthday is soon?

i've only seen him once, and never really met. but i know he knows what i look like and who i am. in fact, we recognized each other at a local restaurant this past weekend-- neither of us said hi though. i would've if i remembered at the time who he was.

if it isn't rude, what form of communication should i contact him by? via aim? facebook? call? text?

Rear ending \ Claim not started by me.

I need some input on a crappy situation.

My little brother was driving and a car rear ended my truck with NO DAMAGE. The other car has a fucked up hood, etc. This happened over a week ago...and TODAY a claim was filed with MY insurance company!!! I did NOT cause this accident!  I have to get the police report that this lady filed tommrrow.

-She claims she had an off duty cop behind here when this when down. (Which better be on the police report)
-The break lights of the pickup up were not lit (what she says.)
-My bro got 2 tickets ..............1 - Not reporting an accident.  2- Leaving the place of an accident. (Again, we did not cause this) The police gave my brother these tickets AT MY HOUSE! They followed him to our house....No breath-a-lyzer, and I assume the cops saw the truck in the driveway...not fucked up.

Questions:    Should I file a claim against her? No damage to my truck. Im just annoyed.
Is there a way to give a citizens summons this late claiming she was tailgating anyhow?

Poll #1452109 Question for the women and gay men

Your boyfriend proposes to you. Let's say you do love him. Which of these proposals would you accept?

Jumbotron at a baseball game. "____, will you marry me?" in front of thousands
While watching a porn together, you find that he erased part of the middle and recorded "Will you marry me?"
Keyed your driver's side door "Will you marry me?"
You ask him to put sunscreen on your back, and it turns out he spelled out "Will you marry me?" so you just burned everywhere else
He tears off his shirt, bends on one knee and proposes, and it's only then that you notice her got his nipple pierced and there's a diamond ring dangling from it
Pissed in the snow outside "Will you marry me?"
He proposes during a game of charades with your friends
Singing monkeygram at your work
Stands outside your window at 5am with a boombox over his head (Say Anything-style), playing 'your song'
Note tied to a brick asking for your hand in marriage is thrown through your bedroom window late at night
He jumps out of the bushes in a wig and trenchcoat and flashes you and before you can scream you read "Marry me?" written on his stomach in Sharpie
He changes your cell phone ring to his voice recording of "Will you marry me?" and rings you until you accept
Rips open his shirt, where he has "Marry me?" shaved into his chest hair
Through interpretitive dance
