please halp

Long story short: when I installed Snow Leopard ~a month and a half ago, I forgot to back up my HP C-3100 All-In-One software. I need to use my scanner urgently, so I downloaded the HP printer drivers from Apple.com. Do I need the software itself? Is that different than the drivers? How the fuck can I open the program to select "scan" (there's no button on my printer itself, you have to do it through the program)??? D:

I am making meatloaf for a party next weekend. Thing is, I've figured I need to make like 5 loaves' worth to feed 14-15 people. Is there a better way to go about this? My thought was just prepare each loaf pan, store it in the fridge until ready to cook, then throw it all in the oven.

most adventurous thing you ate?

So this is spawned by this thread. Never tried that meal but sure sounds delicious to me.

What is the most adventurous thing that you've ever eaten? And what is the most adventurous thing that you would LIKE to eat?

I've eaten ostrich, buffalo, chicken feet (dim sum restaurant). I'd love to try ostrich egg, which I hear is very rich, and I've been meaning to try rattlesnake, which is unavailable on the east coast. I'd also love to try milk from different animals, like camel or goat.

If you were a cocktail waitress propositioned by a married celebrity for a hook-up, would you do it?

Why or why not?

How long would you wait to leak information about it?


ETA: Redefined celebrity.

I ask this, because if it's true about Tiger Woods... his affair went on for three years before it finally came out. I think that is just wrong. Cheating of any kind, celebrity or not, is inexcusable.

My girlfriend has been getting emails from her ex’s mother telling her that she cannot believe the decision that she has made to leave her son and be with someone else. The emails basically give a philosophical overview of what it means to “love” someone through the good times and the bad and explain that even though she is with someone else (me), they would all gladly accept her back with open arms. They also point out what an outstanding young man he is and that she is really missing out on something special.

What would you do if your parents did something like this without you asking them?

Do you feel that it is undermining in any way for parents to get directly involved with their children’s personal relationships?

Relationship problemssss

So I was dating this guy and it was going well for a while (four months), but then he dumped me because I wasn't talking to him much for two days or so.. which happened to be Thanksgiving and Black Friday and I had been terribly busy. So obviously I was upset and wanting him back, until I found out that he dumped me with the intentions of asking me back out hours after. Wtf? That seems a bit abusive and wrong to me, as he was doing it just to hurt me.

So I decided I wasn't gonna take him back, but at the same time I miss him and don't wanna hurt him etc etc. but he keeps doing this childish shit like saying "I'm just gonna fuck other girls since you won't take me back" and so on. I wish I could just stop caring about him and be done with it.

What do I do, TQC? srs and non-srs advice, please.

Edit: Pretty much told him to fuck off. I feel like shit, but I guess it's for the best? x:

So there was this protest-y propaganda scrawled on a bus-stop this morning, with some interesting symbols. I tried to take a photo with my phone, but it was at a poor angle and plexiglass so you can read about two words of the message. I wrote down what I could remember and went to the website at the bottom, but it wasn't all that illuminating besides making it clearer that it was some kind of protest/conspiracy theorist rhetoric. I'm curious as to what the symbols mean, exactly, so I broke out the MS Paint skillz and now turn to you, TQC--the message went as follows (with the symbols being smaller and more within the text, obvs. Doesn't transcribe well.) --

It just came to me that N.W.O. is probably New World Order, but I'm still not quite getting the symbols. Help me, conspiracy theorists, you're my only hope!

I was reading through a book called Weird Kentucky and discovered American Threnody which is a documentary about the "low level radiation" containment "center" in Maxey Flat. This area is less than 20 miles from the college I was attending. I've lived in Kentucky on and off for about 25 years and had never heard of it. And others may not hear of it because the sign was removed. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/American_Threnody

Sports Question

I got the idea from a article I read on SI.com today.

Do you think in your lifetime you will see a female playing in The NBA or any other professional league that is all male right now? Do you think it would be more likley to happen with a team sport like basketball? Could it happen somewhere besides the NBA?

I know we've seen a couple of one shot deals like on the PGA and in The NHL, however I mean could she be on a team and play on a regular basis.

There's a topic that's blowing my mind and google is not being useful, so I need help!

I was asked how the children of a homosexual couple get their last names in Spanish speaking countries. Each person in our countries has 2 last names: the 1st last name is the 1st last name of the father and the 2nd last name is the 1st last name of the mother.

As much as I have researched only Spain (of all spanish speaking countries) allows adoption of children by homosexual couples or allows one of the partners to adopt the child of the other partner in the couple. Sadly, there's no information about how the last names are distributed.

For those of you who have a clue: How is the rule? Do you have any sources?

For those of you who dont, how do you think this should be solved?

I hope I explained this well enough...

Stupid Canada

Do you think it's fair for McD and the rest of the ENTIRE food industry to put political signs in their restaurants against a motion/party? ("Say no to HST!" "Down with the Liberals!")

Do you think it's okay to use the concept as political blackmail?

Do you think it's ironic that the food corporations are pushing for the furthest left major party, the NDP?

Of you Canadians, are you going to be eating out as much, knowing your bill just increased? Do you think the food industry will follow through on their threat?

Do you think it's a symbol of corruption unfair that the BC government has cried a "maxing out" of their 5%-of-applicable-candidates HST exemption, and the only upset food industry people are the ones who didn't get their exemption in time?

Inspired by the current political crisis in Canada and the blackmailing of the Ontario and now BC government over HST (combined tax), which means that full tax (~12%) is applied to all food, which means reduced tips, less customers, huge layoffs, and higher prices for eating out. BC Government Take and Food Industry Take. HST passed yesterday.

1)Do you think people should be required to have health care insurance or else pay a penalty? I know this concept is touted as something that makes healthcare cheaper for everyone but something seems so wrong with this idea to me. I've heard comparisons to car insurance, but driving is a privilege and a choice. If you don't drive, you don't have to have it and you don't have to pay a penalty for not having it.

I know you guys hate the "what should I get my ___ for xmas?" questions, but this one is a little different.

For xmas, I decided to put together a sort of "anti-boredom" basket for my bf. I need some clever way to put it together rather than just wrapping them all separate. Should i put them in a basket with something over it, use a gift bag or what? Any other suggestions?

If it helps, here is what's in it:

A personalized Monopoly game (i replaced literally everything but the board with stuff that pertains to us.. ex: the pieces are little transformer characters instead of the thimble, etc), a talking Yoda stuffed animal, play dough, a Nintendo ds with a Lego star wars game, a book, and some little random entertaining stuff.

I was at a professional development today, and they provided lunch. It was a make-your-own-taco sort of thing, and other Mexican food side dishes.

One of them was a tray of corn with some sort of white sauce - it was a thin sauce. It was slightly spicy. It didn't have anything else is in, like pieces of peppers.

It was SOOO good.

But there was no one around to ask what it was.

So I have not seen my close friend from college since I graduated six months ago. She's currently living with her parents, and she was going to come pick me up tonight and bring me to her house to spend the weekend with her. But she just called me to let me know that her grandmother, who also lives with her, isn't doing well and may not make it through the night. She and her parents would still like to see me and have me visit. I was kind of caught off guard by all this, which my friend noticed, and she said, "If you want to call me back later and let me know, that's fine!"

I really want to see my friend and be there for her, but...she's just so unusually nonchalant about this. Perky, even. Like, the passing of her grandmother is just an inconvenience to our hang out time. It's weirding me out. But this could be her coping strategy, or maybe her grandmother has been sick for a long time and she's already grieved or...something.

Anyway, do you think I'd be a bad friend if I declined the invitation? She says there's a possibility her grandmother will be fine, but at the same time...I'll be staying in her room, so what if her parents come in to wake her up to say her last goodbyes to her grandmother? I mean...how awkward is that? And I lost my uncle a year and a half ago, and I remember that the last thing I wanted to do was deal with people, let alone house guests. When I asked her, "Do you want me to be there? Do you need a friend right now?" she replied, "No, no, I'm fine, but I would just really like to hang out!" So...fuck, I don't know.

Help out a picky eater?

So, tomorrow night I have to eat kaisen nabe, which is basically seafood and vegetables in a soupy broth. Very delicious if you love seafood and veggies, living hell if you don't :D Unfortunately I fall in the latter category (the number of veggies I like is small, and I've never had any seafood that I like--and I live in Japan, where I've had the chance to try a LOT of seafood) so this is something of a big problem.

Since this will be at a Korean restaurant--and by 'Korean restaurant', I mean a restaurant in the country Korea--and I really don't want to offend my host (who I know wouldn't be so much OFFENDED as, "But...why aren't you eating this delicious food we gave you???? ;_;") I plan on knuckling down and eating whatever I can possibly stomach without my throat going, "oh lol yeah right try again next time" as I have a gag reflex that likes to manifest itself at the most inopportune times.

Assuming a miracle doesn't happen where I wind up liking something, is there any way to make this stuff go down easier? I'm thinking just making sure I'm stocked up on water/beverage and washing down every bite I take, maybe doing the thing where you spread your food around to look like you ate more, etc.

It wouldn't such a big deal, except I'm already gonna stick out enough on this trip as the only white chick, and I don't wanna stick out even more as the white chick who thinks she's too good to try the local cuisine omg Americans are horrible people. I'm just really picky--but I want to make a good impression :/ Also, I don't want to be hungry, of course.

I feel so bad that I've been worrying about this for something like a month now.

Dictate my night TQC!

So. My bed was supposed to be delivered at 6. It's now looking like 8:00-8:30.
I was going to see one of my FAVORITE BANDS OF ALL TIME at about 9:00 (they're second band playing, show starts at 8). It takes me about half an hour to get to the venue.
WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

Things to note:
- I expect them to be here for about half an hour or so. I'm on the first floor, but you know... shit happens.
- If I go and they've already played, I'd have wasted train fare, my time, and ugh no fun.
- I have never seen them live and they're playing a show at a small venue in the city.
- I have to work at 9 tomorrow.
- I could always go to Jersey to see them play tomorrow, but it's a ride on the PATH train and a long-ass walk from the station to the venue and it would mean I'd be missing a friend's birthday party at karaoke tomorrow night (although I am taking her to lunch on my own and she has people there that I haven't seen in months that I'd just rather not see at all ever again).
- Actually, scratch that PATH shit: my boyfriend could drive us to Jersey, but I would have to pay him gas and he doesn't even know their music, but at least I wouldn't be going alone (like I am tonight).

NVM, I have decided on getting a bottle of wine, making some flan, and being awesome at home. Jersey tomorrow night! Boyfriend wants to get outta town, he's had a long week.


For dinner, should I have yogurt and fruit, granola, "soup at hand" stuff from Campbell's, ramen, oatmeal, or spend extra time out of my night to make chicken and chorizo chili?

If there isn't a list, what situations can you think of? I can think of Peter Pan, The Little Mermaid, Lady and the Tramp, Aladdin, 101 Dalmatians, Hercules, Alice in Wonderland, The Lion King, Beauty and the Beast. I am sure there are more. Maybe I just have more time on my hands than most people. Haha.

TQC, today I went into my part time (about 25-30 hours a week) job and found out that the property has been sold and we are out of a job come December 15th. The managers found out about it on Wednesday, but were told not to tell us until we came in for shifts because they "shouldn't ruin anyone's day off."

This is shitty, y/y? Especially since it is less than a month until Christmas?

I'm debating what to do. They told me I could go to another property, which would be a 30 minute commute each way. I get paid $7.50 an hour. I'm thinking of telling them I'd do it for $8.50, but can't afford to drive that far for less. Basically, I'd break even on gas money each week with the extra dollar an hour.

Should I find another job? I work at a motel's front desk. It allows me to do a ton of homework and studying. It is basically a work study job, and its five minutes from my home. My friend works at another hotel nearby, and could get me a job, but the hours would be less steady and it would be a lot more work and less study time while I'm there.

I should steal pens and highlighters before this place closes, right?

I was asleep when they grilled them, and had a big lunch so I wasn't hungry when I woke up from my nap. They saved one for me. I'm not very worried about it getting overcooked. They're rare (box says "best served rare), and when they grilled them they said that they are almost impossible to cook anyway other than rare. They're quite thick, 1 - 2 inches, and I'd like it hot all the way through. So, TQC:

How should I heat up my steak?

Cast iron pan on stovetop
15(50.0%)
Broil
12(40.0%)
Bake
2(6.7%)
Other (in comments)
1(3.3%)


I can't imagine putting this thing in the microwave. Any specific details on the best way to heat this up would be wonderful as well!

Other than that:

How do you like your steak?

(so veggies can participate) What's your favorite kind of bean?

Awkward much?

So, today at my ortho appointment... My assistant girl, who takes off the bands and junk, started asking me questions about my life and then talking about herself and I realized we have a decent amount in common. I have a hard time having friends who have a serious relationship with someone (I'm pretty sure she does, and I have my husband), has kids (she has two kids and one is the same age as my youngest, and only 1 year difference than my oldest), and has similar interest as me (music, hobbies, etc). I really want to add her on Facebook (which I know she has because we talked about it) and maybe hang out with her sometime but I don't know her full name. I think it would be awkward to just ask her to hangout when her hands are in my mouth...

How do I approach this? I only have about 2 visits left, at the last one should I give her my email and ask her to add me on Facebook so she has the choice? Would that be easiest? How would you ask her?

I'm just really getting tired of my friends who are stuck up their boyfriends ass and the only thing we do have in common with is we like to drink sometimes. I need mom/adult friends.


If you don't care, Whats the most awkward appointments for you...? Mine would be my Gyno appointments because no one really likes getting a duck looking thing shoved in there vagina when its -15 degrees. If not that, my ortho because they always try to have a conversation with me when their hands are in my mouth. My orthodontist is always drunk and I have to stare at the snot dripping from his nose praying it doesn't land in my mouth while trying not to think about his terrible coffee breath.
