My bf has an iPhone 3GS. I just put an "event" in it via iCal. How does iCal work on the iPhone, will it give him a pop-up when it's time for the "event" to occur? Or will he have to open iCal to see it? If it's the latter, how can I set a reminder for something that will alert him?


What are your nervous habits?

dear TQC,
I've been good and have bought just about 90% of my clothing at thrift stores for the last 3 years, to save money and to avoid wasting money on silly frivolous things, But lately I've been craving a more polished look.
why do we covet fashionable clothing? Does spending money on clothes made by children in foreign countries bother you? Do you ever feel like you are being sucked into a whirlwind of changing your entire appearance? How often do you buy things? (excluding food and every day living items.)

does anyone know what causes/cures for ringing and temporary deafness in one ear? it's never more than 15 seconds or so, i don't listen to music loud, wear headphones, or go deep into my ears with qtips, but it happens fairly frequently as of recent. I've had my hearing tested in the past and didn't have any issues.

TQC, i'm in the recliner in the living room, watching a campy movie, and surfing lj. Chiquita Banana is currently wrapped in a nice little burrito of a blanket, under my legs, sound asleep. I could easily pick her up in her little bundle and put her in her crate, but I can't seem to convince myself...she's just so darn cute and warm.

So, TQC, do I put her up, or sleep in the recliner with her? She can't sleep in my room, because my bed is too high, and with her bum leg, it's better she doesn't jump up/down that high.

Well?

if you work at target, will you tell me about it? my orientation is on thursday and i'm a little nervous, lol. tell me whatever you want, pretty much. i've worked at kmart and walmart so i have a decent idea of what goes on, but i hardly even shop there so i'm not too familiar with anything.

specific questions:
1) how does getting a raise work at target? at walmart, you got an evaluation after 90 days, and as long as you were doing alright, you got a 40 cent raise. does target do something similar?
2) how does crosstraining work? if i'm trained to work in another department, will i get the same hours i normally get plus maybe an extra shift in the other department? or will i get the same number of hours, just spread out over the departments?
3) if the next paycheck is on the 30th, what dates will that cover? i know we get paid biweekly, but i don't know if my orientation on the 22nd will be on that paycheck or not.

Good morning TQC.

1.) So i have a little money saved up and i want to use it to try and find my dad. I tried the free sites, etc, but the problem is that he moves around a lot. I think he is in my city, but have no clue where. I knew especially since he isn't simply living in the place for years, i'd have to pay a little to find hmi.

Do you know of or have had any good experiences with a certain "find someone" website? If not, do you have any other tips or advice for me to help me find him? thanks.


2.) If you dont care, where should the Hubby and i go for lunch? We're in Oregon.

Sibling issues.. [Oct. 18th, 2009|09:23 am]
The Question Club

[carllyy]
We took my little brother in about 5 months ago. He wasn't being responsible at home, kept losing jobs etc. So he moved to our city with my DH and I to get a new start. He got a job about two months ago. In the last few weeks he's been late 4 times on the weekends because he drinks all night with the neighbours and doesn't get out of bed. Last weekend I woke up when he was supposed to get up just so I could ensure he wasn't late.

So this morning I find out he's 1/2 hr late for work this morning! Grr!

I don't know what to do. He's 19 - so an "adult". He doesn't seem to realize he's risking his job by being late. I suppose I could get him to tell me his weekend schedule every weekend and I could wake him up for his shifts.

We can't afford to take care of him if he loses his job. As of right now he pays us $200 a month to live here and that barely covers his food, let alone other expenses we pay for. If he loses his job we may have to kick him out, and that's not what I want to do. He does SO well during the week, but the weekends he falls apart.

Any suggestions??

Skin Tone Evening _______ [Oct. 18th, 2009|12:22 pm]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[tempest_omouthy]
I am 30 with normal to dry skin. In the winter I usually have a little flaky patch between my eyes. I currently use Cetaphyll lotion for all over, some schmancy under eye stuff, and once in a while, like if I've exercised particularly hard, a pore minimizing toner by Neutragena. In the shower I rotate between a shea butter/vit c/ and pineapple enzyme exfoliating wash, depending on how my skin has been.

I want something to help even the tone of my facial skin. It can be a wash, moisturizer, toner, whatever. But I need something! Hopefully that I can get at a local drug store because I don't feel like it being a chore whenever I need more. What would you recommend?

I have yet heard anyone do a decent Smiths cover. The same for Tom Waits covers. No one can match his voice.

2. Remember how in the first few years of this decade, super low rider jeans were all the rage?

Did you ever wear a pair? How low were they?

Are you glad to see this trend gone?

The singer, Pink, used to wear a pair that were about three inches away from revealing her vulva. *shudder* I am so glad that trend is over.

Kitty Question [Oct. 18th, 2009|07:24 pm]

I really want a kitten. The family has finally caved and agreed, but there is one slight problem. I'm allergic to SOME cats. I can't find a pattern (some are short hair, some are long hair) and when I'm allergic, wow, am I allergic. Sneezing, red and watery eyes, the works. So do I just go out, buy a kitten and keep my fingers crossed that it turns out ok, or is there a smarter way to go about this?

I want a kitty sooooo bad :(

Describe the last time you had a "day from hell?" aka when the world seemed to gang up on you and make you feel like complete shit.

I woke up feeling sad.

My dog is getting put down tomorrow.

My housemate is pretty pissed at me. she's also blaring her ~top 40~ radio in her room, so I'm listening to classical music to both drown out the sound of her music, and to help me focus on the paper I'm writing.

The paper I'm writing is on the Holocaust (specifically relating to Lanzmann's Shoah if anyone is familiar).

And holy crap, this is just a combination from hell. This is the first paper I've ever written while crying!

So, TQC, share in my pain. Tell me the last time life ganged up on you and beat you up?

Alright, I'm a huge nerd and I'm watching the Degrassi channel. I just finished the episode when Holly J is cyber-bullied by Alli and she gets all upset and involves the school administration and the police. Is it bad that if I were Holly J's mom I would say "Hey, maybe if you weren't such a bitch, people would like you and this wouldn't have happened"? Her life was threatened online, and was made fun at school, but nothing physical occurred.

Have you ever been cyber-bullied? How'd that go? Were you ever a cyber-bully?

library fees [Oct. 18th, 2009|08:25 pm]

[itsnoelle]
 Four years ago, when I was 16 I borrowed a library book, and returned it late. I accrued a .30 cent late fee, which cost .36 cents to mail to me (pointless, really). I returned the book before the late fee came, and never bothered to pay the late fee. I would like to reinstate my library card in the same system. Will they make me pay $1 billion trillion gazillion dollars to reinstate my card?

Serious and nonserious advice and answers welcome!

What tense should this report be in?

Present
7(20.0%)
Past
5(14.3%)
Some thought-out and consistent combination of the two
1(2.9%)
Just change it every paragraph - keep the reader guessing!
3(8.6%)
Everyone's favorite - the past passive

Hypothetically [Oct. 18th, 2009|09:48 pm]

You're in your 20s, and while you're overweight and you don't eat very healthily, you're not in terrible health. You've had a couple of high blood pressure readings over the last few months, but it was related to birth control pills, and now that you've stopped taking them it seems to have gone down.

You start having headaches every day, and feel generally run down. One night, you start feeling weird. Your heart rate is fast and irregular, you feel exhausted and like your limbs weigh a ton, and you're a little bit short of breath even just sitting on the couch. After a couple of hours, it seems to resolve. The next day, you go to a store with one of those blood pressure machines...and get a reading of 200/103.

That scares you, so you call the Nurse Line at your insurance company and explain your symptoms. They tell you those blood pressure machines are not very accurate, but to go directly to the emergency room because if it's anywhere near that high you could have a stroke.

Well, the emergency room copay is $150, you took a couple vicodin earlier (that weren't prescribed to you) because of your headache, so you can't drive yourself, and if you miss work tomorrow you could get fired because you haven't quite finished your 90 day probationary period.

What do you do?


ETA: thanks for kicking my ass to get to the ER. I'm calling my fiance to come stay with me tonight, and if he also feels I need to go to the hospital, he can get me there.

My dermo wants to put me on antibiotics for my skin.
I did this when I was younger but I feel like it's probably not the best thing in the world to be on them for an extended period of time.

Have you ever done this with good results?
Do you think there's an issue with being on antibiotics for an extended amount of time?

What's the best way to tell somebody "I want to have sex with you, you dumb douchebag" without sounding like a slut/crazy person? The vaguer and more passive-aggressive the response, the better.

If someone makes 0 effort to contact you in any way (except once, via drunk text*), they're obviously not interested y/n?

If you don't care about my boy-problems, TQC, what's the weirdest thing you've ever seen in an airport?

Two furries in full fursuit; they were holding a sign with what I assumed was the person's "furry name," DarkWulfe or something. The flight was coming in from Toronto.

ETA * actually, to be fair, we did engage in a stimulating text convo earlier in the week about how we should have a F-F-M threesome. I know, I pick real winners.
