Okay TQC, I don't date, and never have. I have a lot of emotional issues that I need to work on before I even consider it, but being 21 and saying such a thing apparently = closet dyke. It usually doesn't bother me so much, but lately I feel like people are going after me more and more. I get that I don't have a romantic history with any guys...but I also don't have a romantic history with any girls, either. How can I squash these rumors and still stick to my "not ready to date" mindset?

srs & non srs answers please!

If you don't gaf, what are your favorite kind of shoes to wear?

1. My mom insists that her house is cold and wants to crank up the heat. However, the temperature in her place is reading 75 degrees. I think she's a little off if she thinks that 75 is cold for the indoors. She thinks she is right.

So, is 75 degrees cold for the indoors?

2. Inspired by this, The 10 Worst Halloween Candies of all Time;

What is the worst candy to give out to trick or treaters? And the best?

this happens to me a lot.

Do you ever find yourself feeling guilty for liking something that's generally seen as being trashy or overly ridiculous? And I'm not talking about guilty pleasure-type thing, but liking cliche-riddled action movies or something like that.

Do you ever find yourself really liking something, and being unable to completely coherently say why you like it?

Is there a nation-wide non-emergency police number? For stuff like making noise complaints, or suspicions that your neighbor's a penis-waggling perv, or that your cousin might be doing illegal things...but nothing immediate and life-threatening.

I'm Googling and all I'm finding are 311 in places that are not my town, and locally, full-length phone numbers of individual police precincts. Is 311 USA-wide? Or generally do people just call their local department with a 7-digit number for that stuff?



Because I felt reallllllly weird calling 911 for my car accident today.

What's the most recent movie that you've watched that scared the shit out of you?
What's the movie that scared the living daylights out of you when it wasn't necessarily supposed to?

I just watched the Astronaut's Wife and that scared me out of my pants for some reason.
Anyone else watched that movie?
Did it scare you too?

Okay, this is a weird and somewhat specific question...

Does anyone know of a YouTube video that claims you can buy Jeffree Star dolls at Toys R Us?

I had a couple kids come in to Toys R Us today asking for Jeffree Star dolls, and I went "uhh... fuck no." They insisted YouTube told them we carried them. I told them the video was probably a joke, but now I'm trying to find said video and having no luck.

I'm kind of wondering if THEY were trying to play a joke.

Has anyone seen this video?

Do you think these kids were going to try sending me on a wild goose chase, thinking I didn't know who Jeffree Star is?

I'm used to being able to sleep the whole night through, but I haven't been able to do it in two or three months and it's making me crazy. It's not caffeine (still happens when I avoid it), it's not that I have too much energy (I'm working three jobs right now)... so what gives?

If you have a regular sleeping schedule, is your sleep ever interrupted?
If not, would you please share your secret?

If you don't have a regular sleeping schedule, how the hell do you manage it?

Bonus: What's the minimum number of hours of sleep you need to be able to function like a decent human being? Lots of my coworkers can get by just fine on four hours a night, but if I don't get at least six I am absolutely unbearable.

'morning

Have you ever had a really hot night (in bed) where it was all so sweaty and grimy and stuff? Not the question, I'm leading up. A night where you got home pretty damned dirty already, either from dancing or clubbing or even maybe sex, and you pretty much went straight to bed to sleep in your own juices, so to speak, and then you got up in the morning and headed out into your day...

...without bathing, just getting dressed.

Basically, have you ever gotten dressed after a less than sanitary sleep and not bothered to get cleaned up first?

Have any of you ever done the Dr. McDougall diet/lifestyle plan? I like what I've read so far and especially like that I can eat the same thing over and over again (hi, picky) and am considering giving it a shot. He calls it vegetarian but I think it really borders more on veganism.

If the above doesn't apply to you, do you dress your pet(s) up for halloween? What are they going to be this year/what have they been in the past?
Last year Chiquita was spiderdog! This year she's Elvis, 'cause her lip curls the way his did

Laptops

So, my apartment was broken into last night and my laptop was stolen. Totally suck. But my laptop was crappy and I needed a new one anyway.

Can anyone recommend a new laptop for me?

- Only PCs
- Primary uses will be internet, IM, Photoshop, and watching TV shows. I don't do any gaming.
- I don't have a price limit

For people who have social anxiety or are just super shy, do you think the internet has made your social anxiety worse or better?  Do you think the internet helps you connect with people?  Or do you think it makes it harder to socialize normally?  Or both?

Can you call someone you know online who you've never met or chatted with privately a friend?

Can raising your heartrate due solely to ingesting stimulants have ANY health benefit? Ignoring all the bad stuff legal and illegal drugs can do to you, of course. Is reaching your target heartrate due to chemicals at all like reaching your target heartrate through cardio workouts? Or is it just pure stress on your heart muscle, no benefits?

Did you watch the pilot for the new USA show White Collar?

When the Americans learned what the fiber was from one of their cases and a female FBI agent remarked how there will be an international incident with the Canadians because it's a new security fiber for their $100 bill, did the writers seriously believe Canada could pose a military threat against the United States?

Where can I buy a goddamn black mesh shirt, TQC?

I've looked in Walmart and Zellers and the costume stores and porn stores and nobody has one.

Google just brings me up dumb sports mesh stuff (or shirts for gay men - which WOULD work but I can't order it from online, I need to buy it in-store).

When was the last time, or any time that you were scared out of your mind? What did you do?

I was in the car yesterday with another friend driving when we hydroplaned, and spun out of control for what seemed like so long on a road with a lake on the left side. Luckily, there were no other cars around at the time and we ended up completely on someone's lawn on the right side. I just closed my eyes the entire time thinking "gonnadiegonnadiegonnadie"

Would it be odd to you if a friend said "If a movie is even nominated for an Academy Award I know I won't like it."?

Is that indicative of some sort of anti-elitism?

Isn't a culture that over glorifies the elite better then one that over glorifies the base?

Can you be elitist and still enjoy fart jokes? What if they're classy fart jokes?

I was at a gas station buying one of those 22 oz cans of beer and in an effort not to use 2700000 plastic bags a day said I didn't need a bag. The cashier told me I could get arrested if I walked out of the store with the beer not in a bag. I live in NY. Is this true? What's the reasoning for that?

So, I start my first REAL day as the receptionist for an eco-friendly cleaning company tomorrow, and since I my wardrobe during my last two interviews was all black and drab (while the dress code is business casual - we can wear funky tees if they're worn with dress pants and a sweater), I decided to grab some clothes. The question since it's my first day: Green shirt, blue shirt, or purple shirt?

How do you maintain your body hair?
(I shave my legs and tweeze my brows)

Will you run through your morning routine? How much time is spent between waking up and walking out the door each morning?
(I wake up at 6, walk out the door at 8:15 to be at work by 9. I usually wash my hair the night before so I can just wash my body in the morning and not have to dry my hair. Then I brew coffee and check my email while my hot rollers heat up. Then I do my hair, let the rollers set, do my makeup, get dressed, and walk out the door.)

Back Pain is Ruining My Life

Okay, so 2.5 weeks ago, around 4 am I woke up in terrible pain. It was like my whole body couldn't stop contracting. I couldn't put my right foot all the way down on the ground after it was over enough for me to try and go pee (but after that day, that hasn't been an issue, though my dr did say my right leg had drawn up from pain/spasms). Since then, my back has been in wretched pain, ranging from moderate at best to severe oxycontin and flexoril won't stop it but merely knock me out to avoid it at worst.

I have been to my chiropractor three times. I am taking prescription strength anti-inflammatories constantly. Following my dr's advice, when I'm at home, I have large pillows under my legs to allow my spine to extend. At work or in the car, I use a special pillow with a hole for my tail bone, again to allow my spine to expand. I haven't done much of anything since first seeing him, as he said even stretching is bad for it. I feel like a fucking cripple and nothing gets done and I am super depressed over it.

My friend keeps saying I need to go to an accupuncturist, but this scares me and is expensive. I do not have any form of insurance. I don't think Urgent Care could really help me, and the ER would only rack up some bills I can't afford and tell me to rest it/give me more pills. Is there something else I can do that I'm not thinking of? Could Urgent Care or the ER actually do something? Is there a different kind of doctor I should try to see/work out payments with? Please guys, I don't know what else to do and feel so bad and frustrated. :(

TQC I have this mad urge to go shopping for summer dresses, but alas I live in Canada and no one is selling summer dresses anymore, not even on their websites. Will you link me to some sites where I can gaze at summer dresses and possibly splurge?

Haha, aww!

Growing up, one of the boys in my class was an only child and his parents got him a cat to keep him company...he named her Fuzzbucket Meowhead. Another friend of mine, the lead singer of my favorite band, just Facebook messaged me to inform me that he named his new cat Chace Clawford.

Have you ever started typing a message to someone, forgotten you were sending them a message, erased the message you were typing, and gone to send a new message to someone else, and sent it to the wrong person? For example, I was going to send "I am so tired" to my female friend, and accidentally sent her, "You are the best thing ever" to her when I meant to send it to my boyfriend. She appreciates it, though. :)
