based on a conversation i had last night

Can you bend your pinky (downwards toward your palm) on your right hand without bending any other fingers?

What about the same, but on your left hand?

Are you right or left handed?
(For the record, I don't think this has to do with the ability, my friend just thought we could only bend our left pinky because we're both right handed)

What existing media would you like to see made into a movie? Books, video games, comic books, etc.


I would love to see movies based on American Gods and Good Omens, as well as the Discworld series. Someone needs to remake the Hellblazer movie, and keep Keanu Reeves the hell away from it this time. And don't get me started on Wonder Woman...

They're making a Gears of War movie, and I'm cautiously hopeful that it's not going to suck too badly. I'm also looking forward to The Lightning Thief. Mythology FTW!

Do you know anyone who is obsessed with all things Walmart? Someone who buys everything possible at Walmart, affectionately calls it "Wally World" and even proselytizes?

Like, if you tell them that you bought something for really cheap at one store, will they tell you that you should have gone to Walmart? Even if they have no idea how much the item costs at Walmart?

Do you know anyone with a similar affection for any other store?

TQC moms, I need your opinons/help:

Do you have any little cute sing-song/nursery rhyme type things that are VERY effective for calming down a fussy child? How about particular forms of music? Would classical music be better for a baby, or would lullaby-type music be better to play for settlin' down a young'un?

Do you have any other Baby Tips that you've learned through experience that you feel generous enough to impart upon me? I am feeling completely helpless and totally inexperienced. :(

The reason I ask is here

What is your advice on writing a 3500 - 5000 word paper? I'm having trouble motivating myself, firstly because it only carries the weight of a QUIZ in the goddamn class (we have a quiz once every two weeks or so -- and the quizzes themselves are only 15% of our overall grades!), and secondly because it's on the "logical arguments for and against voluntary euthanasia," and I just really think I don't have that much to say on the topic.

My dad's birthday is coming up and the original gift idea that I had won't be here on time if I order it now. (I was planning on buying a LIFE magazine from the month/year he was born)

Do you feel guilty buying people things that aren't really good for them?

What's the most you'd spend on a good quality, long-lasting purse?

I'm purse hunting (mine is beyond filthy and ruined and ugh) and I found one I'm liking, but it's $300. I have never spent that much on a purse, so I'm a little wary.

Will you show me a picture of a purse you really like?

Who weighs more: you or your SO? If you do, do you ever feel uncomfortable because of it?

How tall are you? How tall are they?

My boyfriend weighs 128lbs and he's 5'10"-ish.
I'm 124lbs and 5'2". I'm already pretty self-conscious about my body, but since my boy is so small, it sometimes makes me feel worse. ):

Stargate Universe body switching

If you watch Stargate Universe you know body switching is a big part of the drama, people stuch on the starship will switch minds with people back on earth and will then be allowed to go joyriding in somebody else body! They meetup with SO's and SEX and stuff happens!

I find this to be appallingly unseemly!

TQC How would you deal with someone claiming to be your SO showing up in a different body? are they getting sexytime?

or If you were the one in the new body and your SO was OK with getting friendly with that new body how would you feel about it?

Boots

I need help, TQC. My favorite boots are pretty much worn out and I need a new pair. Problem is, most boots that I've found have a calf circumference of ~12 inches. My calves are 15 inches around. I want boots that are leather/leather-look, knee high, and 4+ inch spike heels. Where can I find boots like this?

if money wasn't an issue, would you feel weird about hiring someone to come clean your house? let's say you're pretty busy (but could feasibly have enough time to clean if you really wanted to) and your entire family is coming to visit in a few days and it'll be the first time they have seen your newly purchased house.

2)Would making parents go to parent teacher conferences have much effect on education?

3)What are your favorite ways to enjoy cranberry juice?

SEX

I know we get these a lot.

My friend is looking for a song but she doesnt know much about it.
This is what she told me:
She thinks its 80's-90's. Kind of technoish/dark.
Party people... la la la... something something and razor blades... The weekend is for having fun, la la la la
Something about by the time Wednesday rolls around... the weekend is all I can think about? Something about her boss... It's a female singing, obviously.

I googled with no luck.

What song do you think it is?

I'm stopping at London Drugs after my work shift is done tonight, TQC. What snacks should I get for studying/paper writing/slacking off later?

What's your favourite studying snack?

I have to work the morning shift tomorrow, when all the Fancy Business Types show up to rent their cars for the coming week. Should I wear what I normally wear to work (dark jeans, flats, plain colour t-shirt), or should I fancy myself up (skirt + heels + cardigan)? Bossman does not care either way.

If you really like someone in "that" way, how do you let them know non-verbally or non-directly? Dry-humping, etc. is a legit answer.

I'm a photo student at my university and I've just been able to start shooting digitally (I did B&W film for a while). Since Christmas is coming up, I want to ask for a nice lens since all I have is my EFS 18-55mm kit lens.

So, TQC, can you recommend me some good (but not TOO expensive) lenses? It has to be compatible with Canon (specifically my Rebel XT). It can be any kind, I'm open to anything!

Also, what kind of camera do you guys have? I love my Rebel, but I really want to upgrade in the next year or so!

Since I'm 900% broke, this Christmas I decided to make something for my parents. They've just become grandparents for the first time, so I was thinking I could make them a 12 year calendar with their grandkid as the main photos.

He is only 2 months old right now, so I can't really have him posing for certain shoots or make anything overly clever, but I definitely wanted to have what he's wearing (or the scenery) to be in tune with the months. Could anyone please suggest how to go about doing this?

For example, the month of December he could be wearing one of the Christmas outfits I've bought him this year, and be holding a present, or he could be near a miniature Christmas tree. . . etc. What about some of the other months? Any ideas would be SO MUCH appreciated!!!

on roommates, accomplishments and moods

Okay, so I did have quite a bit of stuff cluttering up the living room, so it was understandable when my roommate piled (most of) it up to make a point, so I'd clean it up. But TQC, what the motherfuck do you imagine would be the point of putting my crochet needle IN THE GARBAGE DISPOSAL, other than royally pissing me off??? >:( Srs and non-srs. (My yarn and scarf-so-far were NOWHERE NEAR the kitchen, btw.)

What's the last thing you were proud of yourself for accomplishing?
Despite not being in the mood to clean AT ALL, I cleaned my whole kitchen, bf's bedroom, my bedroom, and moved my desk from bf's bedroom to my bedroom. It's only supposed to be a temporary move, but idk, I think I like it more in here, so it will likely be permanent.


What kind of mood are you in right now? Why?
I feel like Eeyore - generally melancholy. I'm lonely and mopey and the fact that I spent my Saturday afternoon/evening CLEANING is not helping any.

Are those online degree things like DeVry, Kaplan, and ITT Tech legit?

My parents are probably fixing to get laid off, which means I'll qualify for financial aid, but I'd rather do an online study and get an Associates or technical certification.

ETA: I've looked around at some of the community college since most suggested it. The ones I've looked at in my area don't seem to have many online classes, and no degree programs. Should I look out of state?

What about University of Phoenix? They advertise a lot of online degrees, but from what I can see, they're an actual university.

Do you have any roommates? (not counting SOs) If so, do you ever feel weird around them?

I've living with 3 girls who lived with each other last year, and their old friends are currently visiting and drinking, and I feel out of place, since I don't have "history" with any of them really.

I should keep drinking to mingle, y/n?

I forgot how much I missed this place

Until I just remembered it now, having a question I need answered.

I have this aquaintance who is extremely irrating and has bad manners. I know there is this website that allows you to anonymously send people (pre-written) polite messages about certain behavior. Does anyone know what I'm talking about?? Please help :( I need for her to find out how annoying she is. Without burning any bridges.
