1.) I recently applied for a position as a tour guide at a local museum. Has anyone here ever worked as a tour guide or anything similar? What should I expect? I'm totally into this stuff, so it should be fun, but I'm a bit nervous because I've never been so good at public speaking.

2.) Where is your favorite band from?

3.) What is your opinion of Canada?



What have you always wanted to see in a novel? Or see more novels about?

Have you seen Evita? (either movie or live performance) What did you think of it? Something about the lyrics is bugging me for many of the songs. They lead up like they're going to rhyme and then don't.

hypothetical situation. say you break up with your s/o because he or she has been a real douche lately ie: acting controlling and manipulative and borderline abusive. you still love them. then.. a few days later, one of their family members dies and they are looking to you for support and comfort. do you give it to them? do you put aside your differences for the time being and give them what they need, or do you keep your distance, offering sympathy only?

You're in a bedroom with no clocks and use your cell phone as an alarm clock. You set the alarm for 10am and put it on the other side of the room. You go to sleep and have a dream that you missed your cell phone's alarm and are late for some important thing or another, and then wake up. You roll over and can see it's dark outside from the window.

Do you get out of bed and check your cell phone for the time/alarm settings, or just go back to sleep?

You haven't spoken to your mom in some months and she is not a very healthy individual...the type that hasn't a clue what an apology is and is very hurtful on a regular basis. While having many mutual Facebook friends, you two are not facebook friends. You were friends during the summer and you got a pedicure and tagged her in the picture as pedicures were something that the two of you did together often. She complimented the pedicure when you posted it and that was that. Today she updates with this:

does anyone know how to delete photos that I am tagged with? Pics of my daughters chubby toed manicure are grating on my nerves..

How does this make you feel?

so basically, I've had pretty clear skin all my life, but the last 6 months or so my skin has been constantly breaking out. I maintain a healthy skincare routine, I exercise & eat well, & I can't really think of anything that would've caused a hormonal imbalance.

my skin has not been clear, at all, for months now & I want to see a doctor about it. my question is, should I see a general practitioner or should I just go straight to a dermatologist? if it matters, I haven't seen a GP in years so I'd have to see a new doctor either way.

My flatmates have just generally been dicks over the past week. They've now gone to the flat downstairs, have music up ridiculously loud with all windows open and someone is banging on something so hard the buildings shaking. It's 3am and this has been happening for the past half hour.
This is the perfect opportunity to call up campus security right?

what was the best thing you bought for your skin?

mine is benzac AC. i was so lazy with skincare that my skin started to become really horrible. during a drunken fight my SO told me i wore too much make up. i was so embarrassed but eventually saw it as a good thing, as i've been taking much better care of my skin since then. benzac AC wins :D

Everybody knows/has known a person like this:

Will you tell me about your most annoying "friend"? The one that texts too often, calls too much, embarrasses you in front of others (i.e. has no social awareness), acts like you are their best friend when you barely know them or barely consider them a casual acquaintance, or is otherwise a nuisance in some way but you just can't seem to cut ties completely?

Do you think that you can ever get through to these people? What makes them this way?

So for anyone who's been keeping up with my little drama, i've been having trouble with flatmates in the form of excess noise and general cliqueyness. They act like they're the only ones living here.

I've been dating a guy for about two months non-exclusively, and I feel like things are going well, but for all I know they're going just as well with the other (or others) he's dating as well. I'd like to find out his feelings about us, but I also don't want it to sound really dramatic.

What's that outdoorsy smell on me after i've been outside? I don't think it's sweat, since I can smell it a tiny bit after walking to my mailbox and back. I googled it and somebody said that even if clothes are left outside (without a person in them), they smell... and I agree. My skin picks it up, my clothes and my hair pick it up. It's not necessarily a bad or strong smell, but its... definitely a smell. I know boys smell like this after playing sports, but i'm a girl and i'm not really active. I live in Orlando, if that makes a difference.

How did you do it? (google boobs??)

When I was an impressionable youngster, there was no such thing as the internet, let alone free and easy access to porn. Nakedness was found in the uber tame Playboy or by trying to unscramble Cinemax's soft-core programming. I think my 10 year old self would die of horror if I saw like anal porn or gangbanging porn.

TQC, classes for my fashion design diploma start in a week and a half, and I still haven't received my booklist and enrolment information. I've called the school over and over to ask where it is and they say it's in the mail. Every time I ring, they say they're "sending them out this week". I've been calling for over two months.

Where the hell is my information, TQC, and why is it taking them so damn long to send it out?

How firm can I be with them when I call them and ask why they haven't sent it yet? This is school after all, but we're all adults here and I don't have to worry about getting detention from the principal or anything for using a tone.

Store manager question

My husband is up for a promotion from Key Holder of a large store to Manager.

It's a big leap, and I'm sure they're going to try and lowball him.

Last year the store sold $2.5 million in merchandise and (due to the recession) is projected to sell about the same this year.

We have no idea what a retail store manager of a store this size would normally make. 

We're in Canada.

I was thinking he should ask for about $3,500-$4,000 a month in salary. Too much? Too little? Just right?

To Delete, or Not To Delete?

Hey TQC,

Relationshipy question:

I dated this guy for a month and a half last year. Things were going really well and got psuedo-serious between us.

All of the sudden I stopped hearing from him, and then after a week I received a vague Facebook message from him the day before New Years saying "Sorry I've been MIA lately, hope you have a good New Years, whatever you're doing". I was totally baffled but sent a short, pretty chill, non-emotional reply saying "Yeah, Happy New Years to you too", and "see ya later".

I found out a few days later, courtesy of my Facebook minifeed, that he had gotten back together with his ex-girlfriend over Christmas (I found out because his friend posted on his wall asking who he was bringing to his Staff Christmas party, and he answered "My smoking hot girlfriend is accompanying me").

So, yeah, douchebag.

What would be worse:

1) Leaving him on my Facebook friends list (pretty much solely to project the impression that I don't give a shit that he was a total asshole to me and don't even care enough to delete him cause I've moved on - all things I wouldn't mind projecting).

This, however, means having to deal with seeing updates from him. I've "hidden" him from my Minifeed, but when he uploades new pictures they still appear on my "Friends' recently updated albums" page, as I learned when I stumbled on 30 pictures of him and his ex/new girlfriend at a concert he uploaded yesterday.

I also learned that I don't have the willpower to NOT click on the album and look at all the pictures and feel like shit afterwards.

2) Deleting him from my Facebook friends list, which means not having to deal with seeing updates from him, but running the risk of looking bitchy/immature/emotional/vindictive (all things I REALLY would rather not project myself as) when he notices I've deleted him.

Why do I care what the douchebag thinks of me? Good question, TQC. Cause I'm not quite over him yet.

I can't rationalize us ever dating again, because I'd always be 1) Untrusting of him and 2) Pissed that he let things get that far between us and then tossed me aside. And I really can't see us ever becoming friends in the future (which is weird, cause up until now I've remained friends with all my of exes — maybe because I'm usually the one who dumps them). Still, I'm apprehensive about what path to take here.

TQC, a form I'm filling out is asking for my insurance policy number. There are three numbers on my card: an ID number underneath my name, a group number underneath the business name from which I receive the insurance, and a BIN number. Which are they asking for? Also, there is a line that says "address" underneath the section for insurance info. My home address is already listed, and the line is really short. The only address I can find is one on the back to send claims to. What does that mean? If you could help a girl out, I'd appreciate it, cause I'm confused.

Music suggestions?

So, I'm starting to get into liking metal, but I've found my tastes are very specific.

I like melodic music, as well as ballad style songs. I like male/female singers who have pretty voices. The rougher ones tend to grate on me. I HATE screaming/grunting lyrics. I like the bands Sirenia, Ravena, Sonata Arctica, Dragonforce, Rhapsody of Fire (and back when they were just Rhapsody), so I'd like to collect more music in the lines of those bands.

Metal bands that sing about D&D and other geeky things are also acceptable. Also anything that has orchestra-esque music like Diablo Swing Orchestra. And Latin lyrics. Latin is always a big plus in my book. Especially if it's ominous Latin.

A Canadian official was recently hit in the face with a pie (and not a delicious one -- it was made out of fucking SOYBEAN CURD.) Now there's a member of Parliament who wants PETA to be labelled as terrorists.

I think so, but only because everything about this is inherently hilarious. And also I dislike PETA.

Okay, so this just happened to me:
My ex best friend/sorta kinda fwb's ex girlfriend and I commented on each others' posts on random communities, not knowing we were each other. I finally added her, then she read one of my posts complaining about him and commented and then it clicked that she was his ex.
Anyway, we've been swapping stories and laughs about our experiences with him because he's such an ASSHOLE. She offered for us to meet up for hookah and copious amounts of wine and venting.
Now, a very very small part of me wants to be his friend again. A very big part of me thinks it's not going to happen.
I don't know if I should go or not. At one time, I think if/when he found out, he would never forgive me and I would be looked at as a bitch. On another note, I think she's a cool gal and I have basically no friends here now because he took all of ours with him and I think she'd be someone fun to hang out with.
Would you go?

tl;dr: My ex FWB's ex girlfriend and I randomly met through LJ and now she wants to have an IRL venting session meetup. I would kinda like to be friends with him again. Would you go if you were me?

alright, so, i really hate asking for advice like this because i know it annoys people but it's driving me crazy so here it goes.

so, there is was a guy in my english class who i always thought was amazingly gorgeous but i didn't like him because he seemed, to put it simply, like a douchebag. then on the day of our final he randomly started talking to me and i realized that we have a ton of things in common and he's actually really nice. we talked for almost an hour and he also asked me for my number. before we left he told me he would text me. it's only been a few days and he hasn't contacted me yet and sadly, because the semester's over, we aren't in the same class anymore. so, my question is, how long would you wait for a guy to contact you? and, if he didn't, would you forget about him or contact him yourself? i feel like i'm torn between my fear of rejection and regretting being too shy and not going for what i want. halp :(

For those of you who work in a field that requires you to handle clients' ID/Credit-Cards (i.e. waiting tables, retail)....

Have you had any customers with REALLY FUNNY NAMES? If so, what did you do to keep from losing it? (EDIT: What were the funny names?)

I was able to keep it together when I helped Mr. Gaydar a few weeks ago, but had to excuse myself after selling three postcards to a Ms. Barff today.

parking lot of death

The building where I work is on an intersection. It has a small parking lot with angled parking spaces. The parking lot goes around the side of the building and isn't wide enough for two cars to pass each other unless one is in a parking space.

People frequently cut through the parking lot on foot because one road of the intersection is one of the main roads in the city and the other is the only way into a trailer park. Some of them are parents pushing strollers or accompanied by small children. None of them seem to pay any attention to the vehicular traffic and they cut through the parking lot despite there being a sidewalk along the front of the building and another one separating the parking lot from the road.

What can I do to change the situation?

wine poll

Long day was long. I had to spend the end of it with people who really piss me off. Now I am home, everyone else has FINALLY gone to bed, and I have a bottle of shiraz. I usually have to get up early but tomorrow the window install crew is getting here at 9:00 and I have the whole morning off. I won't need my mojo until noon and I can cruise through the afternoon as long as I'm 100% by workout time at 5:00.

How much wine should I drink?

one glass
two glasses
three glasses
whole bottle

Do you like shiraz?


I can't drink white wine because I kept gagging on it while playing Drinking Monopoly. What's a better drink for Monopoly?

ETA note to neongreenleaf: 151 is off the table ever since the Pavarotti Incident. I can't get it past my nose now.

Would you rather read someone's autobiography where (1)they had a ghostwriter write it so the writing is all top notch or (2)an autobiography where the person actually wrote it and while they are a decent writer, you can tell it isn't their job but you can also tell they had a good time writing the book and sharing their story?

How long do you wear purses?

Do you change your purse often, or do you wear it til it breaks?

I've had the same purse for probably close to 3 years now, I got it at UO for $50 dollars and I love it so much and wish I could just buy a new one of the same exact design. The leather is getting frayed around the edges and I just hope it lasts me another couple years. I don't really want to part with it.

I'm working with children of adult ESOL students (the adults take classes at night and we watch/entertain the kids for 2 hours). Most of them are younger than the age group I'm most familiar with (I'm used to grades 5-8) and this particular org is non-profit and volunteer-based mostly, so I'm kind of at a loss as to what kind of activities I can do with them.

So what should I do with a group of about fifteen 5-to-12 year olds?

We have some very basic arts and crafts supplies and building blocks but I'm thinking more games or activities we can do as a group. We tried race car obstacle courses last night and that failed, mostly.

CRAIG FERGUSON. I'm seriously so in love with this man.
