It wouldn't be wrong to go on a photo-taking trip with my ex's friend, would it?
(We haven't really had much contact since the split, and got on well before that, but I get a feeling he may be interested in more. Which I also sort of am...)
Or would it be entirely weird for everyone?

I'm sorry for continually asking small dumb questions about my Christmas gift plans, but I've never actually mailed people homemade gifts before. Appropriately-sized cute tins that I can mail pita chips in: where could I get them for a good price? I plan on checking Walmart, Target, Michaels (if it's still where I think it is), and possibly AC Moore. I'm gonna need like six or seven of them.

Hey, TQC

Any of you into making custom dolls that could point me in a proper and fruitful direction? I don't like Asian Ball Joint Dolls and that's all I can find anything on. It's likely I'm very daft, but I'd appreciate any profound wisdom that you may bestow upon me, TQC.

What food do you eat all the time?

Do you eat one kind of food way more than anything else? Why? I don't mean something you snack on a lot, I mean the meal you eat for dinner by default. Tell me a story about this food that you eat too much of.


Mine's spaghetti. I grew up a picky kid, and spaghetti was like one of the few things I ate. Then my parents left me alone through middle school and high school, and I made spaghetti every night because it was easy. In college, spaghetti was cheap and quick, so I got even more addicted. It took me a while before I came to really eat a lot of different stuff, but I still feel sick if I go more than a day without eating it.

I knew a guy in high school who said he ate rice with just about every meal at home (he was second-generation Chinese.) He couldn't go even a day without eating rice, and he had a personal rice-cooker in his bedroom.

Medical advice!

Well, instead of going to a doctor like any smart person would, I have come to ask TQC for medical advice instead.

In a horrible candy-making accident in which I poked 310 degree syrup, I got this nasty burn on my finger. It hurt, it blistered, etc. and I was dumb and peeled the blister off.

I followed up by pouring peroxide on it and then the flesh BUBBLED UP. Not normal peroxide fizzing. The skin itself formed a bubble.

False Alarm.

So I thought my girlfriend may have been pregnant earlier this week... We've been dating long enough that we've discussed potential baby names for boys and girls.

If it was a boy, we would have named it Eli Turner.
If it was a girl, we would have named it Madelynn Pearl.

Do you have any babies names that you've decided on?

Wood stoves?

Hi TQC:

Have any TQC homeowners purchased/installed a wood stove insert into their existing fireplace before? What kinds of up front/not so upfront costs and effort were involved?

This blizzard over New England right now has me burning a lovely fire, but there's no way in hell I'm leaving the house while that's going.

 Ok guys, I feel really guilty right now. I'm possibly one of the most impatient people in the world, so naturally Christmas is horrible for me. Long story short, I got into my mom's email account to find out what I was getting for Christmas. So tell me, have you ever gone through a lot of trouble to figure out what your gifts were for any occasion?

Mouse in the House

There's a mouse in my apartment! He's a cutie and I don't know what to do with him. If it were warmer I'd catch him and release him outside, but it's 28° with several inches of snow and I don't know if he'd be able to survive. On the other hand, letting him stay inside isn't a good idea either since there are three cats here who are very interested in him. He's currently under a dresser, and Miso is keeping an eye on him. What should I do?

Has anyone read the book Undead and Unwed? I'm thinking of buying it as a Christmas present, but all I have to go off are the reviews I can find by Google, which don't seem to be telling me if it would be too young of a book for my dad's wife. Any thoughts?

EDIT: I just found a site which talks about apparently graphic sex scenes, so I don't think I should buy it for my dad's wife... But, since I'm here anyway, any suggestions? She likes Laurell K. Hamilton, which is how I found this other book, but she owns all of the Hamilton books, so I can't just buy her one of those.

Do you play games at family get-togethers?

I was at a family party last night, and when you walked in you got a sticker with the name of a famous person put on your back. You could ask each person three yes/no questions in order to figure out who you were, but you couldn't give anyone hints!

It was a lot of fun! (My husband was Barack Obama, and I was Beyonce. Others included Elvis, Marlyn Monroe, God, and one of the Jonas brothers)

Twitter widget?

Does anyone know if there's a widget or little program (that's free) that will feed my Twitter updates to, like, a little box in the corner of my screen? Does that even make sense? Like, a twitter notifier that pops up or keeps a running tab? I'm following several local businesses and groups and I'd like to know the second they tweet anything without having to go to the Twitter website. I'm not fond of Twitter but I kind of need to keep updated as I'm in media.

Thanks!

So Sad

So I just realized that I accidently put my Ipod nano in the wash, I forgot that it was in my hoodie when I put it in. I got it for christmas last year so chances are the warrenty is still good.

What are the chances it will be ok if I put it on its usb and hook it up to the computer?

Will I most likely have to take it to where my mom got it and have it fixed?

TQC, I have TONS of white chocolate/oreo and peanut butter/chocolate fudge in my house. I made it for Christmas parties that I coudln't go to thanks to 22" of snow being dumped on me yesterday.

So, today I'm snowed in to the house.

-Should I bake something despite having all of this fudge in my house?

-If so, what should I bake? I do have cookie cutters so I could make cut-out cookies. I also have the ingredients for White Chocolate Cranberry cookies. Or pretty m uch any other baked good.

Should I bother despite already having so much crap in the house?

Picky Boyfriend, but we're slack

My boyfriend is coming to my family Christmas thing. He's practically vegetarian and he's very picky about meat [edit: In that he doesn't eat it, most times. He'll eat mince,and sometimes chicken breast but other things REALLY gross him out] We usually do the turkey, roast vegetables, salads, pudding, kind of Christmas meal, with seafood as an entree. He won't eat the meat (but my brother's girlfriend is coming, she won't eat turkey either so we're having a nice chicken that I believe he'll try), and though he'll eat the vegetables I feel sad that that's not particularly special. Also my mother is concerned about oven space since the vegetables, turkey etc will be cooking for hours. He doesn't eat tofu or other fake meats.

Edit the second: He's the one saying he'll be fine with roast potatoes and salads. I am the one wanting to accommodate him and asking him what he'd like that's special, and my mother is the one wanting to be a good hostess and make sure people are happy. Not him. Though his suggestions aren't 'acceptable' to her due to space and time and theme.

What's something 'special', and 'christmassy' that wouldn't be too hard to cook, that he could eat?

His suggestion was pizza. Would you like pizza for Christmas?


If you can't help me with either of those, what's your favourite Christmas food?

I still read her livejournal, and she's a really whiny, selfish bitch. I want to comment and say things about how she's wrong but on the other hand I don't feel like starting up internet drama. TQC, what would you do? Are you the type to comment and say something or the type to not care?

My sister has a problem with losing things - her cell phone, iPod, camera, etc. I jokingly told her that I'm going to buy her a fanny pack, so that she can have it all with her (she doesn't care to carry a purse*), but the more I think about it, the better idea I think it is.

Should I go with an old school, neon, 1993 style? Or should I try to find something more 'in style' (or as in style as a fanny pack can be)? I'm checked etsy right now, but am open to suggestions!

*I think she'll also put her purse down and forget it, so I want to get something that will stay attached to her. If not a fanny back, maybe a wristlet?

I was thinking back when I was in hebrew grade school, there's a movie about a family hiding from Nazi regime in the 1930's. It's not Anne Frank, I know that, but at the end the mother of the family walks out to distract the Gestapo, and as she's walking away, she takes off her scarf as a memento to her children and husband. Then they board a boat without her. What was the name of this movie? Has anyone ever seen this movie before?

Do NOT refer me to a whatwasthatsoandso. I know about it, and keep in mind that there's a reason I posted the question here.

because it's been more than 10 questions since my last

How do you feel about spoilers, for movies/books/etc? Do you avoid them like the plague or does curiosity get the better of you?

Have you ever been spoilt for something? What was it?

I secretly love spoilers; when the last Harry Potter book came out I read the spoilers on the internet for it the day before it was released. I just Wikipedia'd the end of The Lovely Bones, which I'm almost at the end of. I frequently find out how movies are going to end before I see them; and I just started watching Mad Men and I'm almost 100% certain that I'll have looked up the series plot synopsis on Wikipedia before the end of the day. I'm terrible.

Sewing Question

I have a sewing project in which I am sewing a stretchy fabric and the pattern really recommends using a serger. I understand that using a serger would make it so that the seams would be able to move more with the fabric in its completed form. I don't have a serger and don't want to buy one just for this one project. So my question, if any of you are sewers, can I use my sewing machine in a way that would be like a serger somehow? Or is it really that necessary and I should just sew it normally with a sewing machine?

The project is a Harley Quinn costume, the fabric is spandex. So it's fitting to the body and its gonna need to be pretty stretchy. I don't know how crucial the sewing machine vs. serger differences are in this situation.

TQC, I want to make a playlist on iTunes of all my favourites/most played tunes year by year. So far I've used Date Added and 100 Most Played, but this doesn't take account for songs that were added earlier or later, and Most Played only means most played from NOW, not in a particular year.

Anyone got any idea how I could make a better playlist?

there is a donut at Voodoo donuts called the "old dirty bastard". it is amazing and has chocolate glaze, oreo crumbs and peanut butter drizzled on top.
however, my friend refuses to order it because she doesn't want to say "bastard" and says it's a bad word.

While I wouldn't necessarily say it in front of a group of little kids, I don't see the big deal of saying it when that's what the donut is called.

Dear Dr. TQC:

What does a migraine feel like? I have severe pain concentrated in one area of my head. I am nauseated. The light from my phone (on which I am typing) isn't bothering me, but my Christmas tree lights make my head hurt worse. (I've turned them off.) It's miraculously quiet in my house, but the neighborhood kids' screaming is feeling like a punch to the head.

Getting from A to B

There is this guy I know, we first met about 11 years ago as we worked at restaurants that were next door to each other, and this year he started coming in to the restaurant I work at now for meals. Anyway we have been flirting with each other this year and yesterday he gave me his number.

Now I want to call, and I know I should call today, but I have no idea what to talk about, I mean the only real thing I know about him is what car he drives, his first name and where he worked 10+ years ago. But we banter well so that is something....

I'm turning 21 on Christmas. This is disappointing for several reasons: a) Having a birthday on Christmas sucks no matter what; b) Turning 21 on Christmas sucks doubly because I live in a small town and two out of the three bars probably will not be open, so even if I wanted to go to Elmer's or Hagie's I likely won't be able to.

What should I do to celebrate, TQC? I don't want to drive to the city. My dad has accumulated a pretty full bar at home and is learning how to mix drinks, and wants someone to practice on.... I'm not a party girl and I don't like the flavor of alcohol, but I'd like to make some good 21st birthday memories!

What is the proper etiquette? Do I invite them inside out of the cold? Do I go and stand in the cold with them? Do I applaud? Am I supposed to have cookies for them? What?

Does it make me a Grinch that I would really have rather not gotten up from my nice warm blanket to stand and listen to children I didn't know sing off-key in the cold and then have them hand me a "Jesus Saves" flier while I momentarily panicked about etiquette and let all of the heat out of my house?

I live in the UK and we've had a very snowy weekend, which is unusual as we normally just have a day of snow every winter and then it melts.

Needless to say I'm not keen on doing it again, but will have to do so tomorrow in order to get to work.

Alright, TQC, I'm back with another question. This is my boyfriend's and my first Christmas together, as well as the first Christmas since I moved out of my parent's house. My family lives in CT, my boyfriend's family lives in New Jersey. I live about an hour south of where he lives, so when I drive from his house to my family's house, it takes about an hour off the trip.

I have been invited to boyfriend's house for Christmas Eve, and then am expected in CT on Christmas Day (my mother has said she would be "really upset" if I wasn't there). I'm also going to Israel after the New Year, so my kitten will be coming to CT with me and staying with my parents while I'm gone. The weather on Christmas Day (as of now) is supposed to be freezing rain. I had planned to dope my cat so the ride wouldn't be so bad for her (she doesn't freak out, she just shakes and looks generally miserable). Problem is, I need to leave about an hour and a half to two hours for the meds to take affect. My boyfriend's brother is very allergic, so I can't bring the cat to his family's house.

My nephew is in a bad situation. He's the most important person in the world to me. He's 1 year old and precious. I'm 20 years old and I live at home with my mom, and I'm a full time student with a full time job, so my income is limited.

Back story: My sister is 23 years old and lives with her 22 year old baby daddy and my nephew. She's bipolar and ADD. In the past, they both have had drug problems and my sister is on probation. She's clean now and about to get off probation in January. Neither of them have jobs or a car. His parents pay their rent. Their place is an absolute mess, both of them live like pigs. They have a lot of animals, including a scorpion, a tarantula, and snakes. He's into fishing and I've found fish hooks on the floor and my nephew just started walking. Baby daddy has a prescription for roxicodone and my mom and I think he's selling it. My sister told my mom the other day that my nephew spilled some juice on the floor and baby daddy got 2 inches away from his face and screamed, "Jason! What the fuck is wrong with you!" and he started crying. My sister also talks about how much she hates the baby, right in front of him. Hearing this makes me so mad I want to punch something. Baby daddy is very anti-social, he never speaks and plays xbox all day, and he has a rule that if my sister's family wants to come over, we have to call ahead or we won't be let inside. My nephew never wears shoes, he's always dirty and hungry. I feel so bad for him. I've been thinking about saving up money so my sister can move in with me with her son, but I also have to think about myself and my mental health. My mom won't let her move back home right now because my sister won't follow the rules about cleaning up after herself and getting a job. But my nephew being in that environment and growing up like that makes me sick.

Solving a serious relationship dilemma

Is it normal for a girlfriend to want to heat up a glass bottle containing a straw and use the suction to trap her boyfriend's penis in said glass bottle, with the straw slipping into the urethra and causing great emotional and physical pain?

Is it as normal as a boyfriend wanting to have sex with his girlfriend and rip a thick piece of skin protecting her maidenhood to shreds?

Why is my mouse scroll button being weird? Is it full of cat hair? Or is it LJ? Maybe it's firefox.

A new battery seemed to help, even though the light was green before I changed it. =/ Technology.

My boyfriend just called me, told me he was sick (throwing up) and asked me to look up something. What I was to look up was if drinking alcohol then smoking pot would make you sick like he was, because that's exactly what he did. By googling, it seems like it's a common thing to get sick/throw up if you get high after you're drunk?

Have any of you done it? Did you get sick?

Is he going to be okay? I'd rather not worry about him all night. :(
