do any of you have pets that you are allergic to? how do you deal with this?

i am not going to get rid of my dogs because it's not that bad, but i get pretty itchy sometimes. would benadryl help with this? is it bad to take stuff like that on a semi-regular basis? i didn't realize i was allergic until fairly recently and i've never been allergic to anything else so this is all really new to me.

which of these bathroom habits is the most annoying?

putting the toilet paper back on the roll the wrong way
leaving the floor all wet after taking a shower
using up all the hot water
leaving gobs of toothpaste in the sink
leaving the toilet seat in the "up" position

I was told not to take Benadryl and NyQuil at the same time, but I went to bed at 11 and took NyQuil to fight off the last of my cold and then I got my typical coughing fit from post nasal drip. The only thing that usually helps is an allergy medicine to dry up the mucus. It's now 12:28. Do you think I took them spaced out far enough that I'm not going to die?

Are there things you HATE because you associate them with your ex?

Since my ex was an abusive asshole, everything that makes me think of him pisses me off. Like right now Aqua Teen Hunger Force is on, and I HATE this damn show 'cause of him. Also listening to Tool and Nine Inch Nails is enough to drive me up a wall.

Anyone else have this problem?

Do you wear toric contact lenses to correct your astigmatism?

Plz note I have worn regular contacts for several years and my eye doctor wants me to decide if I want to keep the toric lens or go back to spherical since my astigmatism isn't bad.

For those of you with divorced parents, how do they get on? Do they still interact with each other? Are they good friends?

My parents absolutely hate each other, and it's been twelve years dammit. They won't even let each other near the house, so I guess it's a good thing that they live at opposite ends of the country now I've moved away. My fiances parents get on fine and I find this so strange so I wanted to hear other people's experiences.

How do you say Himalayas?

I was watching a tv programme and the guy pronounced it 'him-a-liars', which I've never heard before. Only heard it said as 'him-a-lay-ers'.

what are your opinions on tyra banks?

also, on weight loss shows such as the biggest loser, why in god's name do they kick the contestants off? i sit there and wonder about it. because it seems to me that the smart thing to do would be to keep them on the show, and keep them losing weight, instead of just kicking them off. IT COULD SAVE THEIR LIVES?!? has anyone else noticed that it always seems to be the fattest people, the ones who need it most, that get kicked off first?

Snow day!

I live in Tennessee and we're suppose to get snow today, normally Tennessee is like a semi-tropical rain forest and most people know dick about snow.

How does your community deal in the snow? do people know how to drive? does the Government have the equipment it needs? does everything shut down? Does the grocery store get wiped out like they won't be able to get back for a month?

How many times can you warm your coffee up in the microwave before you just give up on drinking it?

After one time, its pretty much full of suck but sometimes there isn't a place to get another cup and I need my caffeine, damnit.

My vice is the tall caramel macchiato and I don't mind putting that in the microwave once.

I am curious to see if all/most/some/none of TQC gets PMS in unison, which would explain why some weeks everyone is more bitchy than usual. So. If you don't mind, ladies of TQC, which week of the month is your period, generally speaking? I used January as an example, but if you were to generally chart your period, which week would it fall in?

Which week is your cycle?

The first week (~January 1-9)
The second week (January 10-16)
The third week (January 17-23)
The fourth week (~January 24-31)

I live in Atlanta and work in the airport, commuting by train. Being from the north, I don't mind snow, but everyone else here freaks out. Tonight's forcast is some ice/sleet and flurries. I should be able to get to work fine, but I work 1:30-11:00 or so and it's entirely possible that when I'm done the entire city will have shut down by the time I get out.

The trains might shut down, and I refuse to have anyone come and get me/drive me home because Southerners don't even know how to drive in rain let alone sleet.

I used iTunes as my default music thinger for forever. When I updated to Win7, I got Songbird, based on some recommendations and the promise that it also worked with my ipod shuffle. (turns out this is an addon, which hasn't been updated lately, I haven't tried it because I'm not sure I'll keep songbird)
I've had Songbird for a few weeks now, and, eh, I'm not feeling it.

Features I miss from iTunes:
-Ability to uncheck a track. I want to keep my Eddie Izzard, HHGTTG etc tracks, but I don't want them to play unless I actually select them.
-Volume balancing? Possibly a win7 problem, but now I have some songs that are way louder than some other songs.
-More intelligent "random" feature -- Why do I have tracks that have played 3 times when 3/4 of my playlist hasn't played once, and why do I sometimes get the same song twice within 3 songs?

Features of Songbird that I really like:
-Addable widgets that do things like find lyrics (crowdsourced lyrics, I think, not album-liner ones, because sometimes they have interesting spelling or cool stuff like chords)
-Doesn't try to get me to install Safari and other crap
-Not as huge as iTunes when it's running. (these two are the main things that got me to consider an alternative)

So internets, what do you recommend? I'd like compatibility with a shuffle, I know that's at least a little restrictive. Am I doomed to have to keep itunes for updating my shuffle and just use something else to not drag the shit out of my system if I want to do a lot of stuff at once?

You're at a small dinner party with a new SO, showing him/her off to your friends for the first time. After dinner the host wants to play the 'I've never...' drinking game. Everybody has their drink. As a joke, the host says "I've never...buried a dead hooker in the desert". Your SO is the only one who takes a drink. Awkward laughter ensues. The next person says "well, um...I've never had sex with a horse". Your SO is the only one taking a drink, again. Uncomfortable quiet laughter ensues. The third person says "I've never met Chris Hansen". Your SO drinks again. Everybody's looking at you and your date strangely. What do you say?

Nothing. Just let things unfold as they're already unfolding. It's out of my hands.
"Hahaha. He/she's such a kidder. Aren't you, sweetie?"

In the tenth grade, I had dull, center-parted hair. I wanted side bangs. The woman took the pieces of hair on either side of my face and cut them to about the length of my eyes. I looked so stupid! We went somewhere different the next day, and they got it right.

 My school had a "lockdown containment" today.  They found "ammunition" somewhere, so they locked everybody in class for 5 hours, patted a few kids down, and searched all the lockers by hand and with dogs.  I, thankfully, was on a field trip, eating at a Thai restaurant while my friends were escorted to the bathroom by police officers.

Should I consider a shitty (easy, but not what I want) job that pays about 10k less/year than I would consider acceptable pay while looking for other jobs or just keep looking?  I would have to relocate or drive 4-5 hours each day depending on traffic.  Right now I have no expenses because I'm staying at home while looking, though I do have to start paying back college loans soon.

It's a government job so the benefits would be good, and I've been told that you need to get a job as quickly as possible after college for resume purposes.  Also, the location is no better or worse than my current area.

I'm considering chemically damaging my hair with a supermarket-type boxed chemical straight perm. My hair is fine (individual hairs, not bulk), straight/smooth, gets greasy easily... your typical "asian" hair... and I want to give it some texture to make it easier to work with. It just lays there and I know damaged hair holds style better (to an extent). It's already straight so I don't really care about the straightening bit, and I really like my original hair color so I don't want to use dye.

So my ex keeps calling me to hang out. The thing is I want absolutely nothing to do with him since the reason we broke up is I found out he has a long term girlfriend who goes to school across the country- I found this out when he decided to give her my phone number so she could rip me a new one. He keeps texting/calling me and I keep telling him I don't want to hang out or speak with him at all and to leave me be but he keeps making plans with me without really asking me ("Hey, we're gonna grab lunch on Friday.") and then getting pissed when I don't show up.

So since this guy clearly doesn't get the hint would it be too harsh of me to tell his girlfriend that he wont stop harassing me?

For those who are married: How did you pick your maid of honor or best man?

I ask because I recently got engaged and told my two best friends. One has been my friend for ages but we haven't been hanging out a lot and she has been distant. She also reacted negatively about the engagement because she dislikes the guy. The other one was my roommate in college and is my best friend. And while she doesn't love the guy, she was very excited to hear about the engagement. I asked her to be my maid of honor and she said yes.

So how do I tell my other friend that I just want her to be a bridesmaid without her being really pissed? She expects to be the MOH because she wants me to be hers.


One hates him because he wouldn't add her on facebook. lol

The other didn't like him because we broke up once and because he doesn't go out and prefers to play video games. However, she is coming around and like him. She also is very organized and has time to be the maid of honor while the other is busy with work and her baby.

TQC, help me decide!!!

We got a few inches of snow last night, and now the roads are all icy.

If I attempt to drive in it, I will end up in a ditch. I suck at driving on ice and the 1 and only time I did, I ended up in a ditch. I don't have the funds for a tow truck to pull me out in case this does happen.

The husband could take me to work...but we'd have to get the kids up and drag them along.

Should I just say fuck it and take a vacation day? I've got vacation and sick time I can use.

If I do decide to go to work, any advice to keep me from ending up in a ditch??? The roads in my neighborhood are really bad and I don't foresee them getting any better in the next 12 hours.

They want other information such as a passport or birth certificate (both of which my parents have), or utility bills/bank statements - I don't have utility bills in my name and my bank doesn't send out paper statements.

Ugh. As far as I'm concerned, a photocard driving license and national insurance number should be sufficient, especially as they haven't even offered me the job, but apparently it isn't.

What am I going to do? Will they refuse to interview me because I haven't brought these documents along, or will they accept my excuses?

Last time you switched up your hair (in either a minor or major way), what did you do?

I've always had a center part, because I thought with the cowlick I have on my hairline anything else would be impossible. Yesterday, I parted it to the side just to see and I liked it so I kept it there. And it stayed that way when I got up this morning! I feel awesome.

ETA: Pics would be great!

A guy I dated for around a month when I was 15 just started sending facebook messages to my best friend on facebook. They were never friends, so wtf does he want? We haven't spoken since we broke up. He's been asking her about her life, but we can't figure out why he would care.

is it rude of someone if they told you to text them about plans for tonight and you did and it's been 2 hours and they still haven't responded to you?

if you tell someone to text you, you'd keep your phone around so you could see it, right?

Have you had any of these?

Implanted permanent contacts

If you've had corrective eye surgery, how successful was it?

Don't need glasses or contacts
Need glasses for reading
Need glasses for some activities

What was the surgery trying to correct?

If you've had eye surgery, was it worth the time and money?


Ticky Box

Tickety tick tick

I have moderate nearsightedness; I need glasses to drive, but I need different glasses to play music or use a computer. I tried progressive bifocals and they didn't work for me (gave me too narrow a field of vision). I can't wear contacts because I'm allergic to them. I'd love to not wear glasses, or to wear them less.

Can UT still pull it off?

Did Alabama maybe hurt the important UT guy on purpose?

Is the quarterback really that important? Why can't the replacement guy do it? Why don't they work harder to make sure the replacement quarterback is really good too, just in case what happened today happens?

The other evening my roommate and I were walking to my car from the grocery store around 9:30pm and we see this girl sobbing. As we're putting our stuff in the car, she approaches us and tells us that she just got in a fight with her boyfriend and he kicked her out of his apartment. Then she says she only needs $35 to rent a hotel room and she's "really really embarrassed to ask" us for some money. We both reply that we don't have any cash with us and she thanks us and walks away. As we're driving away, we reconsider and don't mind losing a few dollars. We find her on the other side of the parking lot and she's getting into a car (and it doesn't look like she's crying anymore), so we drive away.

Do you think she was telling the truth? What would you have done?

What's the last thing a stranger asked you for?
