1. After watching Nip/Tuck, I've got to ask, will the song, "Goodbye Horses" ever stop being creepy?
A. And just out of curiosity, since there are quite a few young'ns here, have you heard of this song before and do you know why it's so infamous?

2. I've been thinking up riddles. I'd like to try one out on you to see how easy they are and if I need to go back to the drawing board on them.

How can a father still be a father when he has never sired children?

I was taking my dog outside just now, and he found an entire serving of cooked spaghetti under a bush. There wasn't a takeout container or anything, it was just...a ton of spaghetti.

analyze my dream

I have shortish blonde hair. The pictures on my profile are about a year old, and my hair is a few inches shorter than all of those picture. Based on those, do you think hair extensions (clip-ons) would look fake/ridiculous? Do you think, if done right, they could look good? I'm being impatient and want long hair, and wouldn't mind spending a bit to do so. My uncle, the flamboyant hair stylist that he is, cut my hair back in august in a really cute short way that was meant to go uncut as it grows out long. However, I've found myself in an awkward mullet-of-sorts limbo and would just like to style my hair already.

Opinions? Your experiences with hair extensions?

Your input, please

I went to the recycling plant, and found a pile of discarded photographs of someone's vacation to Alaska. Most were of strange people on some kind of board room/dining room in a cruise liner. Why were these in the paper bin? Answer any way you want.
1. She made duplicates by mistake.
2. He made duplicates to show people, but discovered he has no friends, so had no reason to keep them.
3. She lost her job, and memories of her work vacation make her sick to her stomach.
4. He accidentally switched cameras with a stranger and got the wrong film developed.

So, it's 6:30AM now, and I've yet to go to bed.


I am feeling a little tired, but not enough to actually sleep. I have to get up in two hours to wake my boyfriend up, and then I can possibly sleep for maybe 2 more hours after that before I really have to get up.

Should I go to bed or get some work done?

Dear TQC

I'm trying to watch videos people have posted on Twitter, however every time I click on the video link or go to the actual site that allows people to upload movies onto Twitter the QuickTime logo appears with a question mark in the middle of it.

How can I watch the videos uploaded to Twitter without getting the QuickTime logo to apper with a question mark?

I was going out last night and a friend offered to drive. We go to pick up someone else and my friend says that her friend will be driving. I said I wasn't comfortable with that.

Her friend gets in the car and she was clearly wasted.

Thanksgiving alone

Since I moved 1000 miles away from my family I'm doing this Tday alone. I was thinking of going to get some KFC and eat some poultry and sides in honor of the holiday.

But then I though...is KFC even open?? So I ask you TQC, are fast food places open today?

What's your favorite thing to get at KFC?

Have you tried their grilled chicken?

I've just realized that a couple of men I know never call me by my name. I know they know it, they just never say it, or any nick names. It's always "hey, you" or "that girl." I know they know my name, and it isn't a big deal, but I was thinking about it, and it's weird. The particular men I'm thinking of include a very good friend, a couple of casual friends and someone who I rather can't stand.

Why do they do this?

I took Nyquil once many years ago and proceeded to hallucinate that my neighbor's house was on fire. I have no doubt that I took too much.

That being said, I feel incredibly sick today. Should I take nyquil?
Do you recommend something else for sore throat, runny nose, stuffed head?
Anyone else sick right now? :(

Which option should I choose?

1) Drive 15 minutes to my mom's house, then ride with her for the 45 min each way to my aunt's. Then drive the 15 minutes home. It'd be easier in a way but then I am sort of reliant on whatever mom's plans are for arriving/leaving.

2) Drive the (what comes out to about) 50 minutes to an hour drive to my aunt's house. By meeting everyone there I could come/go whenever I want but I'd be burning more gas and I'd have to get directions.

How often do you talk to your parents? What age group are you in?

TQC, i've been in a relationship for 3 years. for the past 10 days or so i've been having dreams (actual dreams, not fantasies) of me going out to a club and picking random guys up and fooling around with them, and it gets me pretty excited :( can you tell me what's wrong with me?

Because the radio at work was playing Christmas music this morning, and Josh Groban's put-me-to-sleep version of "O Holy Night" came on...

What do you think are the worst holiday songs out there?

IMO the Christmas shoes one and "Last Christmas" are at the top of the list.

Inspired by this post:

What are some Christmas songs that you feel like everybody else hates, but you like anyway?

I like Last Christmas, haha. I also love Mele Kalikimaka but everyone in my family is always like "Turn that shit off!" There are probably others too.

Slightly inspired by the needle post.

I have my first shift at the hospital in two months on Sunday!

Personally, for me it's a lot easier if I just wear some beanie/hat sort of deal more than anything, but since I work with kids I was thinking about wearing a wig (in case you don't know, I have no hair right now.)

My question is if you think back to when you were a kid if your nurse was a girl with no hair would you have cared in the slightest?

Have you ever been in a parade?
Yes, our St. Patty's day parade when I was in middle school. I sat on our school's float.

For those of you spending Thanksgiving with your extended family, are you tired of them yet?

    okay okay

trying to make the best of it is more depressing than just ignoring the whole season.

Anyone else hate/totally dread the holidays (Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years)?

I am unemployed as of 3 weeks ago and this is the first holiday season without my grandmother. Why doesn't anyone understand that I'd rather just sleep through all of this then show up empty handed at my parents house? That I'd rather sit alone instead of being around family asking me where my (ex) boyfriend is (because they haven't seen me since last year) and where I'm working...and what I'm doing with life... I don't want to deal with the obligations of holidays, and I don't want to have all of the things that are missing this year constantly thrown in my face.

Ugh. Am I the only one eating Captain Crunch alone this year?

My family was supposed to supposed to go eat dinner with my dad's side of the family, but my parents decided last minute not to go. So instead...

What should I have for dinner tonight? I can go pick it up, but I don't want anything that will be a lot of trouble.

Dinner with friends

When you go out to dinner with a group of friends and you all want to pay separately, what's your usual procedure?

I'm going out with a bunch of friends tomorrow night for dinner and as always when the bill comes I'm sure it is going to be confusing as to who had what drink and appy and main and with tip and tax exactly how much everyone owes.

What do you normally do?

A Croptacular Celebration

For those of you who celebrated Thanksgiving today what were the highlights of your meal and of your gathering?

For everyone else, does your culture have a harvest festival similar to Thanksgiving? If so, what do you call it, what is its symbol (like our turkey, pilgrims and cornucopia), when do you celebrate it and how do you celebrate it?

I have worked in a clothing store for the past 6 months. Our manager, (Miss L) left so for now our assistant manager, (Miss E) is running the place.

The underside of my hair is atomic pink, it's been like this for years and was this colour when I was interviewed and then employed with this store. The last manager didn't have a problem with my hair as long as it was clean & tidy. Miss E has said she doesn't like it and also said that I should be prepared for the area manager who is coming down next week, and who may well mention it.

It doesn't mention anything about hair colour in the company handbook. Being that I was employed with pink hair, is it possible I could lose my job because of it? I'm in Scotland
i ain't into that!

Can you comment to this post with the names of songs with recognizable keyboard intros?


I have a very epic-sounding keyboard intro to a song stuck in my head. It's a popular song but I am completely blanking on the name and I have no idea who sings it. I think it's from the 70s/80s... and it's not Baba O'Riley.

What's the craziest thing that ever happened at your Thanksgiving? Burnt turkeys? Burnt people? Fist fight?

There were about 25 members of my family at my aunt's house, so many of us we can't fit around the table anymore, my aunt (she has MS) got up to get her granddaughter a sippy cup, she fell -god knows how she was using her walker- smacked her head and there was blood everywhere. So 20 people rushed to the kitchen and me, my sister, and my cousin's wife sat with the toddlers and tried to make sure they didn't go in the kitchen. Ambulance was called, paramedics showed, we had to get the kids out of the house before the lights and sirens showed up... and they took her to the hospital. So that knocked out 3 people, then 3 more left, and it was pretty much the most eventful yet boring day ever. We ate dessert without them.

edit: AND do you prefer real cranberry SAUCE or the cranberry sauce jelly that stands up straight like the can it came from?

I work at a department store and schedules are printed the Friday before. Last Friday, I printed out my schedule, and it said I was working 10-7 on Black Friday. I checked my schedule several times afterward, and it remained the same, though it really isn't supposed to be changed after the Friday it was posted.

Just now, I checked it again, to see if maybe my schedule for next week was up, and it says I work 9-7. What would you do if you were in my situation? Go in at 10 and bring in a printed copy of the original schedule? Or go in at 9 and leave at 6 instead of 7? Or work 9-7? I really doubt I can work 9-7, considering I'm only getting a thirty minute lunch.

I realized I've been clenching my teeth during the day, and so I probably am also at night (most likely from my new medication). I'm guessing this is why I've been waking up with killer headaches every day! Other than just getting off the new med, what can I do to fix this? Are there any OTC meds to help my jaw relax?
