 I just saw a commercial for Colon Health. Does that work? My stomach is killing me even though I've been eating healthy and drinking lots of water. I need to exercise more though.

How often do you "clean out" your closet and throw out/donate clothes?

Is it true that if you use a box dye to dye your hair red -when it's originally brown- it will strip your hair and turn out a nasty brassy orange color?
If you have brown hair and you've successfully dyed your hair red on your own, how'd that go / what did you do?

Don't know / don't care: What is the latest and / or most depressing movie you've seen?

My parents got divorced 3 or so months ago. My mom was dating this other guy, and some stuff happened and she told him he was going back to my dad.

I just got a phone call from my boyfriend asking why I didn't tell him that my parents got remarried. I had NO IDEA; his family saw it in the paper and asked him about it.

Have any of your parents/families kept something from you? I'm not sure how to feel about this.

Serious business question.

What are your opinions on people who self-harm? (Cutting, et cetera.) Do you think they're weak and pathetic for not being able to deal with their problems, or think that they just need help?

Have you ever had to deal with a friend who self-harms? What did you do, and did it work?

ETA: this question brought on by idiot I follow on Tumblr saying that she doesn't feel bad for self-injurers at all and they deserve it. Which annoyed me enough to ask here. So yeah.

3:12am and still wide awake.

I was never an insomniac before, but the past 2 weeks I never get to bed before 2am it seems like. Might be the insane amounts of coffee I drink at work to remain motivated, but today I only had half a cup at breakfast... it's gotta be something else. Maybe I just have tons of energy these days?

If you're also awake right now, what are you doing? Watching TV? Reading?

I want to make a recipe that calls for chopping up nuts and fruit in a food processor. I don't have one, but I do have a blender. How effectively can a blender be used for this purpose? Any tips for making sure it comes out right? Googling has told me that blenders can be used as food processors, but only in reference to specific recipes and none talked about fruit and nuts so idk how well this will work.


Alternative q: Gene Roddenberry's son is auctioning off many of his father's belongings to raise money for Haiti. The auction includes his driver's license. I can see why die-hard fans would want to own it, but it seems really weird to auction it off. What do you think? Is that a strange thing to sell? Would YOU want to own it?

I'm 24 and finally at the point where if I can apply for financial aid on my own as an independent. This is fantastic because although my parents are living off one income for 3 children and just getting by, I haven't lived with them for 4 years and I still had to be considered a dependent so I didn't qualify for a dime of financial aid.

I applied the other day and it said my EFC (estimated family contribution) is 9861. I have no idea what this means. I googled the be-jesus out of it and it still isn't very clear. FAFSA said this isn't a dollar for dollar amount, meaning 9861 does not equal $9,861 I'd have to contribute. I certainly hope not because I just bought a house and have zero dollars left to myself.

Anyone good with financial aid business and have any clue what this means?

If you don't know and/or care do you love the movie Overboard. I sure do.

Do you leave valuables in your car overnight? (They can either be monetarily valuable or emotionally valuable).

Does it depend on where you are parking?

Personally, I don't leave anything of value in my car. Maybe it's habit from growing up in a big city. But I've heard so many stories lately of people having their iPods or family treasures stolen from their cars overnight. I don't understand why people leave that sort of stuff in the car.

Our handyman (landlord's bff) called us last week to see when we would be awake today so he could stop by and hook up our new washer and dryer. We told him anytime after 10:30 was fine, and I set my alarm for 10:30 so we wouldn't still be passed out.
It's almost 1. When will he be here?

So, my Californian roommate and Vancouverite me are sitting here with Secret Life of an American Teenager on in the background, and I notice on of the girls is wearing boots...in her house? Wot.

She said it's more common in the U.S., where people walk into their house and just don't take their shoes off. I've never seen anyone in Canada do this, unless they were planning on leaving again right away.

TQC - is it really more common to wear your shoes around the house in the U.S.?

I'm a size 12 shoe, and usually the only real place I can afford to buy shoes (nice shoes that are in my size, that is) are in Payless or Avenue. I tend to wear flat shoes (chuck taylors, flats, etc) and I have trouble walking in high heels. I normally buy one set of shoes at a time (yes I know, I'm cheap okay?) so the store can't be too expensive. I also have flat arches, so my feet hurt when I walk around too much.

Basically, my question is: where is a good store to get shoes and boots with a short, chunky heel?

House party v. going to the pub/club

Which option and why?

I'm dithering because a lot of my friends are skint and going out could be costly. BUT most of my friends live on the other side of the city so going out in the city centre means it will be easier for them to get there.

Also having party at home could mean lots of tidying up post party :(

I should learn how to not get pissed off over casual everyday stupidity in the American business place. You wanna know what gets me pissed off? I'll tell you what gets me pissed off. Incorrect signage. That's what.

Like you see the sign over the soup tureen at the buffet place, and the sign says "New England Clam Chowder". You lift the lid, and inside you find something that looks like chili. New England clam chowder is white because it is milk-based. Chili is brown because it is beef based. They don't look anything like each other. It is just that someone put out the new soup and didn't bother to change the sign, and there isn't a manager walking around to notice that sort of thing.

*daha*

ETA additional questionage:

What are some examples of incorrect signage that annoy you?

What are your non-signage pet peeves?

How do I stay up for 3 more hours? I don't want to drink caffeine or anything because I need to go to sleep early, but don't want to go to sleep TOO early. It's only 7 and I'm exhausted.

Tommorrow is my first day of college classes since I graduated high school. I have been planning to go and saving to go for almost 2 years. However, I am currently sick with the flu/strep throat(I think), and I feel horrible.

Would you A) suck it up and go to class, or B) Stay home and email all your teachers and beg for mercy?

TQC, my throat is absolutely DESTROYED from three days of coughing and spastic vomiting from this damn sickness. I can barely swallow.

I already know the basics for food (smoothies, tea, soups, popsicles), but do you know anything else or any recipes that are easy to go down and will not cause anymore damage? Please, I'm literally getting dizzy from not being able to eat.
And yes, am going to doctor tomorrow.

Does anyone have the rasterbator standalone file? The actual site is down and I really want to crank a few out and hang them.

Do you have any rasterbations hanging? Are they in black and white or color? Will you show us pics?

Have you ever been in a tornado? Did that affect your level of fear with them? (eg were you afraid before and not afraid now, more afraid)

Hi Doctor TQC!

On Wednesday I got my 4th flu/cold of this winter season (I normally only get one). I stayed home on Tthursday and Friday and feel much better; I dont sneeze or cough or have headaches/pain. But when I go out, and the cold wind blows, or someone smokes near me, I feel a light difficulty to breathe, like I needed to make an effort, take deeper breaths and a weird uncomfortable feeling stays for a bit in my throat and lungs.

Is this normal due to the cold air, cigarettes and the maybe still sore throat or should I take this seriously and get myself to the doctor?

DK/DC: How often are you sick?

Maybe Moving [Jan. 24th, 2010|08:40 pm]

[arewar]
My SO and I have lived in this apartment for 15 months. Overall, we're happy with it. But we've had a regular problem with the neighbors being noisy for at least the last 6 months. (We've complained to the management 10 times and called the police 4.)

Our lease is up this month. We have to give 60 days notice to move out.

We went to the office today and spoke to one of the managers, telling them that we're SICK of the noise and we wanted to give our notice.

The manager was upset, cause she knew about the problem and had been warning the neighbors for months, but it was obvious to me they were never going to do anything about it until we threatened to leave.

So, the manager asked us what they could do to keep us there, saying maybe she could give us something off our rent. (We've always paid rent on time and never had any complaints against us.) We told her we didn't know, but the neighbors above MUST GO.

She said okay and said she would talk to her boss and see what they could arrange.

TQC, what will my apartment manager offer me to keep me to stay?
What should I demand?


Sidenote: We feel like we're getting a little ripped off on our rent. This place is nice but old, poorly insulated, and a little expensive for the quality of the area and interior. We looked at new apartments the last two days and found a place we really like, so considering all that we want to be somewhat picky on what we accept. Personally I feel like for the crap we've had to put up with, we should demand a really good deal.



Tl;Dr Version: My neighbors suck. My management agrees and wants to offer me lower rent and kick the neighbors. What should I demand?

So, I'm in San francisco for 6 months. I'm trying to convince my BFF to come visit me around may, say for a week-10 days. Since he'd be flying in from Australia, we could go pretty much anywhere (I would just fly to wherever he lands and met him).

He is not really into cultural stuff, ie museums, art galleries, live music, etc. He likes to gamble, he likes to chill out at the beach, he likes outdoorsy things but nothing too strenuous (like long hikes).

I was thinking maybe Hawaii, but I really don't know that much about the states. Where would be an awesome fun place for us to go?

i am generally afraid to step out of my comfort zone. i'm plus sized, but am making an effort to lose weight. i am in jeans ALL THE TIME because i think that i have enormous ugly calves and shorts/skirts will be just insulting to people's eyes :( i have a lot of black stuff but i really want to take a step with colours. yay me? i also do not wear makeup because i think i already have a gigantic face-makeup will just draw attention to it. i haven't had a haircut in months and i also never did anything with my hair before. my most expensive haircut was around $10 so you can guess how.....behind i am.

Do you ever mock your SO's accent? Assuming they have one. In a sweet non-mean way lol.

My SO has a slight accent when he says COLD he says it like CODE, and when he says PULLED it sounds like POOD. I think it's just cute and funny.

What kind of child were you?

aside from honoring conan o'brien's amazingness, i'm thinking it's fitting because:
1. they're both my favorite.
2. they're both pale.
3. they both have amazing orange-y hair.
4. they both have beady, beady eyes. O_O

so, 'conan' as her name?
Y/Y!?

i realize i'll have to correct a lot of people when they think she's a boy.
but i don't care.

opinions? suggestions?!

p.s.
conan loves you.Collapse )
