I apologize for coming here to ask this, but I am just confused.

I have a hosted Blogger domain now and want to switch it over to Wordpress. I bought my domain easily through Blogger for $10 - but if I switch to a Wordpress domain, does that mean I'm going to have to pay $50 a year through a hosting company? or is there a cheaper option? (I'm a broke college student)

any recommendations for hosting?

Any advice or help would mean the world! Thank you!

I rinsed my mouth with hydrogen peroxide, rinsed my mouth out, and swallowed my saliva which tasted of the hydrogen peroxide. Should I call 911? I'm really scared but I don't know if I should.

ETA: I called poison control and the person said I would be fine, so... okay.

Alright, kind of confusing question, so hopefully I make sense. I know there are a lot of ~creative~ folk in TQC. For a creative writing class, I need to write a short story about two people who meet each other in person in a neutral town (say, while both are on vacation or something) and exchange numbers somehow, but never actually see each other or know what each other look like, and the prompt is to tell the story of how they progress in their friendship (or relationship) after they go back home to their separate cities and finally meet, and to make it something unique. I have a wonderful story idea all ready to go, so the hard part is over... but I have NO idea how to describe two people meeting and exchanging numbers without ever seeing each other. Two of my classmates have already told me they're using a masked party/costume party idea and I don't want to use that. I've contemplated the guy finding the girl's wallet without her ID in it and maybe just a business card, but that's all I've got.

So my question is, based on that prompt and the story I'm writing for this class, do you know of any ways two people may exchange numbers in person without ever actually knowing what each other look like? I hate how the simple things are always the hardest part.

if i have a shift that starts at 7 and i call in at 8:15, does that count as no call no show since i didn't call before the shift started? assume that it wasn't something vital like a cashier and that it was in an area where i wouldn't really be missed.

eta: the shift in question wasn't a shift i was normally scheduled for, they just came up to me the night before and asked if i could come in and stock the next morning. so it wasn't something like cashier or electronics where they NEED someone there, i was just going to be an extra body to help get things done faster.

Pro Hair People HALP!!! [Dec. 10th, 2009|10:34 am]
The Question Club

thequestionclub

[tempest_omouthy]
Here's the deal - over the summer, I bleach my hair with Redken Lightening Crystals 40 vol bleach. During the fall and winter months, I like to be a coppery red/strawberry blonde colour. I've previously used Redken Color Gels and liked the shade, but it faded fast. Recently, I've used Matrix Socolor and last year it worked okay after the first two dyings. This year, I've used a filler specifically for the level I'm using (it's an 8, the filler is for levels 5-8), left the colour on for 45 minutes (the longest time recommended) and then used a sealer after, but it's still fading faster than I'd like.

Now, I know red is the hardest colour to hold (and rid yourself of, ironically) and I know sticking it over 40 vol bleached hair is making that worse, but I was wondering if anyone has another dye in mind that might be better? I went to cosmetology school, so I can get pro products, but am obviously limited to what my supplier carries. I know they have Matrix, Redken and CHI. They have some others, but I'm not sure what else, since I've stuck to the ones I'm more familiar with (though I haven't tried the CHI). I think they have some L'Oreal, Schwartzkopf, and... maybe Biolage (do they even make colour?)?

Any suggestions?

My car needs 2300 us dollars worth of work to get it going again. Should I just get a new (used) car?

(not that you care: 1998 toyota avalon, 110,000 miles, needs 3 sensors + all new spark plugs + coils + power steering fluid)

EDITED to correct my stupidity: It's the power steering PUMP that needs to be replaced. The guy said that 2 sensors were 250+ each, one was about 200, the plugs and coils together were about 300 and the power steering pump is 350. He estimated 10 hours of labor. It's not at a dealer, it's at this place, which has great reviews. I wouldn't buy a car for the same price I'd get a newer used car on a payment plan for 7 or 8 thousand.

I can hear a small kitten mewing behind my hedge. I went out there and I can hear it, and I saw movement, but I didn't fully see it. It is currently 30F outside. And it is dropping in the teens at night.

I didn't try to grab it because I don't just want it to run away. What's the best way to get it?

I should try to get it and bring it in, right? How do I lure it? I'm vegan and I don't have any pets or pet food...I can't think of what I have that might entice it.

I can only hear 1 kitten, I think. Was it dumped? Or did a cat have kittens back there?

Ahh please help me with my animal rescue ignorance.

Edit: Ok, I put some warm soymilk out there. I can't hear it anymore, so I don't know if I scared it. My boyfriend will be home soon, and when he's home we'll climb through the hedge and look for it.

Edit 2: I went outside, and a small young adult black cat came up to me and meowed. It was a little skittish but approached me. I held my hand out and it let me touch it, but it wouldn't let me grab it. I'm 97% sure this isn't the cat I heard earlier. I climbed through the hedge and I looked for another cat, but I didn't find one. The black cat ran off when I came back. I left some soymilk and a towel outside, and I'll be listening for either cat meowing, so I can try to bring them in.

TQC, i need some help with roommate etiquette.

My roomie is normally awesome. Shes sweet and lovely, but lacks care for kitchenware. I love to cook so the things i buy are usually of at least decent quality, while she just buys the cheapest stuff to get her by. I have learned to keep most of my high quality stuff at my bf's house, where i do most of my cooking. In the summer i was given an expensive pan from my Dad, but knowing my roomie would destroy it, i put it in to storage for when she moves out (April). My bf already has a bunch of pans and no room for storage in his kitchen. I came home one day to find her using it to make a stir fry with a metal fork, scratching the bottom. I didnt get angry, but explained to her that it was very expensive and that she had to be very careful. She offered to not use it, and since we have 5 other pans, i agreed. I put the pan back away in storage.

Fast forward to today. I come home and notice it in the drying rack. I can see it is more scratched up then before. I am confused and upset seeing as I havent even used this pan yet and now its destroyed. I know its not like she genuinely meant to mess it up, its just not something she thinks about. I was concerned, so i texted her 'hey, if youre going to use (my expensive pan), please please be very careful.' She replied saying that she has 'only used plastic on it and if i feel more comfortable, she wont use it anymore'.

Should i approach her about it more directly? Or not bother at all? I figure, whats going to really come if i approach her about it. We really rarely see each other due to busy schedules. Should i just give up and let her mess up the pan even more? Should i passively aggressively move the pan to my bfs house? Do i make her replace it? Im worried she took my text like some angry note and i dont want to be sour, but i thought she understood how i felt. :(

If that question is too long for you-what is your favorite snack food? I like crackers with cheese

1) pretend you have a daughter. if one day you woke up and there was a girl your daughter's age in your house, claiming to be your daughter, but she looked nothing like what you know your daughter really looks like, what would you do? let's say that she's able to answer questions that only your daughter would know. what would you say? would you call the police? would you believe her?


2) conversely, pretend you're a 12-year-old girl. you wake your mother up one day and she doesn't recognize you. you're able to answer all of her questions, but she still doesn't believe you. she insists that her daughter looks completely different than you. WHAT WOULD YOU DO?

I accidentally deleted all the photos off my SDHC card earlier today. I was able to get all the pictures off and save them to my laptop, but now I'd like to put them back on the card. I've tried adding them several times (formatting the card before doing so), but my camera doesn't recognize that they're there. How can I remedy this situation?

Is a really cute t-shirt a dumb gift to get for a 2 year old?

She is my baby cousin, she is the cutest thing alive, and she will be 2 in March. I got her a Threadless onesie back when she was first born, and she has obviously graduated into real clothes now, so I kind of really want to get her something Threadless for Christmas. My budget isn't very large this year, and I have some threadless dollars saved up so I can basically get her a present for $5 of my own money. Plus, I found this really cute design.

Image here of tshirt and cousinCollapse )

If you don't think a tshirt is lame, do you think that design is? Do you have one you'd recommend? Or do you have a different gift to recommend for a young child? I'm planning on getting her a size 2, although maybe I should get her a 3 since it'll probably be the best in the summer...kid sizes are hard. :( Does my cousin look to be above average kid size? I think she's slightly round, but still cute baby sized and I don't want to get her something way too huge for her to wear for years.

Other ones I was thinking might be cute
Loch Ness Imposter
Camouflage
Arr, Let O' Me Nuts
Bird Migration
SublimI'mAwesomeinal

Bird Migration is probably my second favorite for her, just because it is adorable.

My sister's 18 year old cat passed away an hour ago from complications with having a stroke. She was on her way back from the vet getting cortisone but we think it may have made it worse. She's had the cat since she was 10 and she was very attached to her.

How do I make her feel better? I was thinking about taking her out to get her a dog (she's always wanted a little yipyip dog but never got one because she didn't want to disrupt the cat) but it's probably too soon for that. What else can I get her or do for her?

TQC, I need help.

My computer has a pesky redirect virus. I talked to the IT guy today at work and he told me to download Malwarebytes' on my work computer, install it on a flash drive, then put the flash drive in my computer and scan my computer while my computer is in safe mode.

I did that and it found 5 infections that AVG and SuperAntiSpyware didn't catch.

I don't know what else to do other than restore my computer to factory settings (which he said would work too). Only I can't figure out how. With the Acer and Gateway I had, I could access it before Windows started. I can't figure out/find it on my Toshiba.

Is there anyway to reset my Toshiba without a disk? It didn't come with one and I'm not sure trying to make one while I have a virus is a bright idea. Or is there something I haven't tried that will get rid of this pesky virus?

I'd Google it...only I can't because of the damn virus.

My Mum lives with me and my cat. We've both always had dogs and are definitely dog people. Our dog, Buster died a few years ago and now I'm playing with the idea of getting one again.

The one and only thing that is holding me back may sound a little crazy. I work full-time, my Mum is retired so caring for a dog just now is no problem. I just worry that we get a dog and sometime down the line my Mum's health depreciates (it isn't at its best just now but by no means bad enough to hinder caring for a dog) and she's no longer able to look after one. I work too many hours to have one, being that I would not like to leave it home alone for 7/8 hours a day.

Dear Dr. TQC,

For about half a year I've breaking out on my scalp. I don't use hairspray/mousse/leave-in products, and I've tried a number of different shampoo/conditioner regimes (including ~*~organic~*~ ones) to no effect. I was on spironolactone for my regular acne and that seemed to help it a bit, but when I got off the medicine, the scalp acne came back (though facial breakouts have not been bad at all).

I know the standard TQC response to acne questions is tea tree oil or hot compresses (which my dermatologist advises against, as she says heat aggravates acne), but I don't know how to apply either of those techniques to my scalp!

Have you ever had inexplicable scalp breakouts? How should I end them, short of going back on spironolactone? I don't know anyone else who has had this problem, and I haven't gotten a chance to talk to my dermatologist about it yet.

Someone was telling me about a movie they saw. The main character gets stuck in traffic on his way to his daughter's birthday party or something like that, so he gets out and starts walking. Along the way, he kills a lot of people for some reason and obtains bigger weapons, so it's sort of like Grand Theft Auto: The Movie.

I need to see this. Anyone have any idea what movie he was talking about?

Dear TQC, I'm writing a speech about deforestation and I'm looking for an article about what the US government has recently been doing about deforestation. So far, all I'm getting are links to yahoo answers and articles about other countries. I can't find squat about what's going on today from a reliable source. Where can I look for a good article on that other than google and SIRS? If you know any articles about this kind of thing, can you please provide me with a link?

Do people in your area hire professionals to put up their Christmas lights? Do you like the way those ones look?

So many people around here hire people to do it. I think the ones people put up on their own look much better.
