Im going to be moving into a new/bigger town home. I am painting the walls. (my room grayish purple, sons room plant green, play room is blue like my icon, and living room is this burnt orange/red) I am also looking for some other things to spice it up and add in actual personality. Saint Louis doesn't have very many stores that are decent for shopping for wall decals, accessories, nicknack's, etc. What are your favorite stores online to shop from when adding something new to your space?

(Right now I am looking for wall decals for a lot of the rooms and I am looking on whatisblik and etsy.)

so i started talking to this guy on okcupid, and he only has very blurry pic of himself.. well mostly his beard.

we're getting along great, and he doesn't have a phone right now but he is getting a new one friday and is sending me a pic from it.

should i be nervous that he's a total fattie uggo? if i am completely not attracted to him once i see how he looks, what should i do?

Does anyone ever sit in the proper manner in a computer chair? I'm looking around the office, and not ONE of my co-workers is in the "approved" ergonomic position.  It just doesn't seem comfortable. 

And I NEVER sit in any kind of chair properly.  One or both of my legs is always folded up or off to the side. Do you sit down in chairs correctly?  Feet on the floor, back straight?

Do you have an unusual computer chair at school/work/home?  I have a folding papasan chair for home.  my only complaint is that it doesn't have wheels!

who would you draw?
will you tell me the names interesting looking people i should look up?
or maybe share pictures of people that you think would make some neat charcoal drawings?

i'm getting a tattoo tomorrow, my boy has said he hates tattoos on people in the past but he hasn't said anything negative about mine (not that it would mean two shits to me if he did)... but out of curiosity...
how do you feel about tattoos on women?

(assuming they are "good tattoos", not some shit that looks like a 3 year drew with a permanent marker)

This might be a really stupid question, but I don't care.

Is there any way you can go to jail for not paying bills? Medical bills to be exact? If there is, can you turn yourself in for it? How long would you be in jail for?

Basically, I'd rather trade jail time than pay these medical bills. Or maybe work community service to pay it off somehow?

Obviously, I am an idiot who's never been to jail or worked community service.

Help me with dinner?

Hiya, TQC.

I want to make a new pasta dish from a cookbook I got for Christmas. It's really simple and I have most of the ingredients already. It's just pasta with a pesto sauce, but it sounds yummy and it looks yummy. As an added bonus, I'm cooking for my fiance and myself, and my fiance loves trying new things. It's his first day back to work after a two-week break, so I figure he could use a nice dinner and some relaxation.

Anyways... I need to go pick up the last couple of ingredients, a bottle of wine, and.... something.

I'm drawing a blank on the "something". I want some kind of fish, I think. Maybe shrimp or some scallops? In any event, some kind of protein, preferably seafood.

What would you recommend, TQC? The pesto is pretty basic: garlic, pine nuts, mint and Parmesan cheese. The wine I'm shooting for will be something white and a little dry. The seafood the man and I generally end up with is salmon, talapia, or tuna (and shrimp or scallops, depending on prices). I wouldn't mind sticking to what we know, but we're always down with trying something new. My only request is a fish with small bones/no bones is a must. I'm buying the fish fresh, if that makes a difference.

If you think I should do something fancy with the fish (I'll probably just marinade it a little bit with some lemon juice/some of the wine and some garlic), I'd like to know that, too.

Thanks in advance!

Quick edit:

I know mint pesto is different, but I'm not a huge fan of basil. The cookbook said mint makes a good substitute, but I can always use basil if your recommendation is going to be odd with mint. I have to pick up some of [whatever fresh herb] when I go grocery shopping, so the herb choice is still kind of up in the air. I can use basil instead.

Second edit (or, "And the winner is"):

I think scallops wins. I'll use the basil, as so many mentioned that it was better. I'll try the mint another day :) I'll grab a small loaf of super-crunchy bread and things will be very, very yummy later.

Thanks so much for your help!

TQC, I have to leave for school Saturday! Unfortunately, this means that I have to clean my room by Thursday, because that is when my boyfriend is coming to spend a couple of nights with me (and believe me, this room is heinously disgusting and will take 3 days to clean). I also, however, have a Wii game I want to beat before I leave, because I can't take the Wii with me back to school.

So how do you suggest I balance cleaning my room and playing vidya games, TQC?

my dad wants a new mix cd. i'm not sure what to put because he told me to suprise him. i'm on my mom's computer so i have access to a lot of older music.

TQC, this year I've decided to take advantage of my free gym membership and actually go work out.
My plan is to get up and go from 6:30-7:15 a.m., Monday through Friday. This gives me plenty of time to get cleaned up and get across the parking lot to be at work by 8:00.

The problem is, I hate getting up early. Usually I roll out of bed between 7:15 and 7:30 to be at work by 8:00.

Besides looking at myself in the mirror, what are some other ways to keep me motivated to work out on a regular basis?

I think it'd be easier to get out of bed if I go to bed early, but I really can't fall asleep before 10:00 p.m. Any tips to get myself to bed earlier?

ETA: The mouth piece mic on my dad's cell phone randomly stopped working. Do you think that I could convince him that smoking while talking on the phone caused it (he'd probably believe it)?? I have it with me to take it to Verizon after work and every time I flip it open, I get a blast of smoke smell that's making my head hurt.

What are some bad experiences you've had with doctors?

One doctor I had asked if I could be pregnant. When I said no, I haven't had sex with a man for over 9 months (I had a gf) he literally scoffed at me & said "well that's hard to believe".

Another doctor was going to refuse to give me an STD test because he believed I couldn't get STD's when using condoms. It took him 10 minutes to give in, but only after I'd told him that a couple of times I hadn't used a condom.

Have you ever been to a bridal show? Would you recommend it as a starting place for getting wedding ideas? Should we get there right at the beginning, or can we just show up an hour before it's over and still benefit from it? Aside from bringing a large bag and giving out a an email address that is NOT my main email account, do you have any advice?

Are there any gifts that you get often for birthdays or Christmas - specifically the kind of gift that pretty much screams "I have no idea what to get you, so I'm going to grab something generic and/or loosely related to something I know you have an interest in" that you would rather not get again? Do you have any family members or close friends who get you these sort of gifts, who you expect to know you well enough to give you something they're relatively certain you want?

I just found out that I am incredibly annoying to a friend-of-a-friend but not for any of the reasons I would assume. Apparently, I'm too polite. Like this girl considers it obnoxious that I will say "please" or "thank you" multiple times in the same conversation. She feels after you said it once, that's plenty and after that you're being obnoxious and trying to "look innocent."

Is my friend's friend a crazy person or is there such a thing as being too polite?

So on occasion I go through bouts of where I consistently wake up before my alarm (like 45 mins to an hour) even though I haven't gotten enough sleep and still am ridiculously tired. I'm going through clinical rotations right now so things are stressful, but I feel like I'm handling it pretty well. I'm just guessing on a subconscious level some anxiety is coming out in the form of backass insomnia. My hours at the hospital are usually very long, so I want to get the most out of the hours I do have to sleep. This problem resolved itself on my surgery rotation when I had to get up at 4 every day last month, but I would prefer to sleep til the 5:30 that I can on this rotation. I have no trouble sleeping in on weekends when I have them off, wtf brain. Has you ever dealt with anything like this? Any ideas other than medication?

Not everyone defines disability in the same way - for example, Deaf people don't see themselves as disabled, but society as a whole generally does. Likewise someone may have disabling depression, but may be unable to get benefits because it's not seen as "a big deal". So I'm curious:

Do you consider yourself to be disabled?

Yes - physically
Yes - mentally
Yes - both

Does society consider you to be disabled?

Some musical help needed

Starting next week, I will be facing a long commute everyday, so I thought I would burn some CDs this week to keep me company. My problem is, most of the songs I want, I don't already have on CD. I don't have an MP3 player, so I don't have any of those either.

Where do you download songs from?

I haven't downloaded songs since around 2004, so I don't even know where to begin looking. Also, I don't really have a lot of money, so they need to be cheap.
