I just saw I Hope They Serve Beer In Hell and was majorly disappointed. I read the book and laughed and loved it and was looking forward to the movie.

What's the last movie that really disappointed you?

Mystery martial arts weapon

I went to a karate tournament and saw a girl doing a kata with this weapon that looked like a Klingon weapon of some sort. I know it's not what it is because she had a karate kata with it and it's from a martial arts supply store. It's a curved blade with a handle in the middle. It's got blades on both sides, like a quarter moon or something, and you hold on to it with the handle in the middle.
Any ideas about what this could be?

TQC, are you the "less cute friend"? Does it bother you?

I just went to a bar with a friend from school tonight. 11 guys approached me to ask if she was single and if I'd introduce them to her. I don't know if it bothers me so much as annoys me that they can't just talk to her themselves.

My mind is telling me no, but my body, my body is telling me yes. I don't want to hurt nobody, but there is something that I must ask you.

Do you see anything wrong with a little bump and grind?

My friend's divorce has finally been settled after almost two difficult years and she got her house back. She also just got a new vehicle last week after he took her's.

What is something silly and fun to get her as a joke re-housewarming gift?

ETA: She has a very supportive boyfriend, and they're having a BBQ tonight to kind of celebrate.

Has anyone here used Clinique's Supermoisture Makeup? Is it worth the $23?
I have extremely dry skin, and I'm looking for a sheer to moderate foundation/tinted moisturizer that will work for that. The foundation matcher thing I used brought it up as one of the results, but I'd really like to hear any personal opinions.

If you dk/dc, where's your favorite place to go when you need to be alone/think/just need some peace and quiet?

Guys, I want pancakes for breakfast. Should I make chocolate chip pancakes (in which case no maple syrup coz choc chip + maple syrup is too sweet for me) or plain pancakes (with maple syrup)?

I've heard of programs or add-ons that can block specific websites for certain amounts of time (for instance, if you don't want to be able to access LJ while you're writing an essay, you set it up to block for however long you think you need). Can anybody recommend one?

I'm throwing a housewarming dinner party for about 14 or 15 people next week, all really good friends of mine. yesterday at a different party, one of my guests asked a girl i know and like but am not super close with if she was coming to my party, to which she responded that she would love to come. I don't think this girl realized it was supposed to be a smaller event and not a big party. am i obligated to invite her now? if not, how can i politely say that i can't have any more guests over?

all of the shaving cream commercials on TV show the lady shaving her legs standing up with her leg on a counter or something of the sort.

does anyone do this?
I shave my legs in the shower sometime but I definitely prefer baths for shaving.

When was the last time you woke up somewhere strange? Where was it?

I woke up this morning curled up in a papasan chair in the living room of some random guys I met last night at some shit frat party with an empty bottle of Fat Tire in my hand, and the house just happened to be three miles from campus. I had to walk back in someone else's clothes that were too small, down the main road in town. I feel like I just did a walk of shame without the whole getting laid part. :/

Is it too early to pull out my Halloween decorations and start decorating?

We're working on a "fall cleaning" and I thought about tackling that too.

What was the last thing that made you happy?

I realized today that since I've started my new job, I've lost a decent amount of weight! Right now I'm wearing jeans that I haven't been able to wear since this time last year!

all my questions are about food

What is your favorite Buffalo Wild Wings sauce?

I haven't tried enough to pick a favorite yet, but I have tried the Parmesan Garlic which was really good, and the Asian Zing which tasted really good but was HELLA spicy.

ETA: I'm talking about a restaurant that is called Buffalo Wild Wings... not so much the actual food itself... but if you've never been there/heard of it/don't care, you can tell me what your favorite sauce is at whatever wing place you go to =P

Why is group work so awful, TQC? Has anyone ever had a good experience with a group project? What's the worst experience you've had with group work?

(inspired by the fact that one girl changed the date of when we should have our work done by, and shit hit the fan as a result)

"i was walking down the backstreet, duh, duh, duh, da duuuuh duh" i know some of you guys know what im talking about. the ladys singing is very just calm and flat the whole time.

My friend just started school at BC and she's really really depressed right now because she's extremely lonely and not making any friends at all at her school. She called me bawling a few hours ago, and I didn't really know what to say. I can't go see her because I'm at Penn State, which is a good 6 hours from Boston.

I want to send her a package later but I feel like this may be a bit urgent because she's been depressed for a few weeks now. What can I leave on her Facebook now that might cheer her up a little? Links, pictures, websites...anything would be appreciated! Anything that cheers you up or distracts you or makes you laugh.

For all you people who have ever had an SO

Wondering about getting crushes on other people. Seriously not because of a personal situation...just curious.

1. Do you ever get little crushes on people? Like legitimate ones that are kind of fun to dream about, but not ones where you ever consider even for a second the possibility of acting on it? What was your last crush like this like?

2. Do you ever get BIIIG crushes on people? That make you question your relationship? Tell the class?

3. Did you/do you ever tell your SO?

Why do the prices go up and down on

I've been looking at this kitchen play set for my daughter (Melissa and Doug deluxe kitchen set for anyone that cares) and some days is $128 and some days it is like $180. It's crazy! I'm not buying it until it gets closer to Christmas, but I think it's funny that the price changes so much, sometimes day to day.

Have you started your Christmas shopping yet?
I'm one of those people who like to plan ahead...way ahead. I hate going in the stores in December and try to avoid them if I possibly can. I like to go shopping on Black Friday just for the deals, but I like that to be the last day I am in the stores...

I'm talking about the stuff actually coming from and not the individual sellers

Ok, so last friday I took my computer in to a repair place because it was stupidly slow. They found a virus on it, and I was told it would be fixed in three to five days. I waited three days and called in, and was told they were almost done and they'd probably call me to tell me I could come get it by the end of the day. That did not happen. I called every day for the rest of the week, and was told the same thing "Were almost done, you should be able to come get it by the end of the day." It's been over five days since I brought it in, and I'm getting a little pissed. I understand sometimes repair jobs take longer than expected, but I feel like I'm being given the run around. Am I right to be pissed? What should I do when I call in again today? I just really want my computer back. :(

If someone is renting an apartment that includes a maximum occupancy on their lease, (and the maximum occupancy is already living there), and they have a baby, what happens?

Is it breaking terms of the lease, and therefore likely to lead to eviction?

Do you think it is (or ought to be) treated differently than simply deciding one day to let a friend crash on your couch?

Have you or someone you know ever been in this situation? Any thoughts on this at all?

ETA: I'm asking because I just signed a lease with a max. occupancy of 2, and will live there with my daughter. I am also having another baby in February, and wondering what will happen then.

What are some things people could give out for trick-or-treating that isn't store-bought candy? I'm trying to organize city-wide trick-or-treating for grown-ups and I was thinking it would be cool to hand out some things that aren't just little Snickers or whatever, but I can't think of things to suggest that wouldn't be too expensive to make a lot of.

I'm making a kind of This Is Your Life memorial book for my  Aunt who died a few years ago.

Have you ever made a digital scrapbook? How'd that go?

I'm probably missing some stuff, so, what kind of info would you put in it aside from photos etc?

booking hotels.

I will be staying in La Jolla/San Diego, CA for a week at the end of October & I'm trying to find cheap hotel rates. Tips? Hookups? lol

I found a two-star for $39/night off Hotwire. Have any of you used Hotwire before? Feedback? Are there better sites?

What's the most un-nutritious, decadent thing you've ever consumed, i.e. fattiest, meatiest, sugar-filled, completely-void-of-fruit-and-vegetable-matter-unless-we're-talking-potatoes-or-maybe-fried-onions?

Bonus points if it wasn't actually food, per se. Like a lightbulb or a crayon. (In which case, details plz and how did that work out for you--and I mean that in the most literal sense?)

ETA: Dinner was cheese-and-potato-filled perogies smothered in melted cheddar, slabs of bacon, fried onions and sour cream. With coleslaw on the side.

I am frustrated with life. I have a completely worthless college degree and I'm not qualified for any job that pays over minimum wage. I will have to work 80+ hours a week just to make minimum livable wages, and until then I can't move out of my parents' house. I can't go back to school, and I honestly have no idea what I'm supposed to do with my life.

Have you ever been in this situation, and how did you get out of it?

Oh hai TQC,

I’m going to be flying out for a massively long flight to India Monday morning. Anyone want to recommend any applications or ebooks to put onto my Ipod? I’m a fan of supernatural romance and horror, but always looking for new things to read.

Alternatively, how far have you travelled? Where's home and what would be the thing you'd miss most if you had to leave and never return, excluding family?

If you could change your sex without surgery, etc, temporarily, would you? What if it was permanent?

What would you do if you woke up tomorrow, and you were the opposite sex? (Ex: man becoming a woman, woman becoming a man...)

Work Out?

After you work out, would you say that one side gets stronger than the other side?
I don't know. I joined a martial arts class at my school and we work out a lot on both sides of our body. But we mainly work on the side that where we have our writing hand. It's supposed to be our stronger side.

Did you ever continue exercising after high school? Why/why not?
For those of you who work out/exercise:

What do you do to "get that heart pumping"?

Have you ever taken ibuprofen before drinking? Did you have any adverse effects?

On a scale of 1-10, how stupid would it be to do this? I sprained a tendon in my foot and it's really swollen, so I want to take some Motrin to bring down the swelling. Buuut I'm about to go out in half an hour or so and will definitely be drinking. Should I just suck it up and not take the Motrin?

So, I've recently had a lack of hobbies in my life. I don't play my instruments much anymore, and I'm thinking of picking up photography, and for SOME odd reason, my mind keeps telling me to get a polaroid camera. Anyone know of any good ones that I should check out? Price isn't an object, as I can always save up. :D

TQC, I need your advice!

I've lived in my neighborhood a year and I picked it for its proximity to local transit. I haven't gotten a chance to really get to know the neighborhood. Tomorrow there's a community event with tours around the area as well as free food, music, and other fun bits. I kind of want to go.

I will learn about the arts options in my neighborhood
Free food
Maybe I will find out where to get good Chinese food
Maybe I will feel like part of something?

Unless I blow off work, I will really only be able to attend the last half hour (it goes until 7)
Neighbors are obnoxious
Event is run by older brother of guy who hates me because I like him (chances are that said guy will not be there, but the brother knows who I am)

Should I go?

If you don't feel like answering the question, post a picture of a weiner dog.

Despite paying almost three hundred dollars a month with a three thousand dollar annual fee in insurance, I learned yesterday that my nephew's medical insurance won't cover the EEG testing he needs.

The cost out of my pocket? Two grand. What's the point of having insurance if they aren't going to cover you?

Have you or anyone you know been completely jerked around by their insurance company? What happened?

And what sort of company promises you a service in return for money but refuses to actually do the service once it is needed? Isn't that a form a fraud?
