I was using TurboTax's free edition and I paid $28 for it to prepare my state taxes, but when I went back to complete filing it had eaten all my info (W2s, etc.). Have you ever had experience trying to get a REFUND from these fuckers? Do you find TurboTax generally works well for you?

How much junk do you like in your ice cream? I'm eating "Karamel Sutra" and I do not know how I feel about all these pieces of STUFF in my sweets :|

Do you watch Californication?
Do you love Hank Moody?

I've just recently been introduced to this show. I've just finished the first season, and cannot wait to buy the 2nd season on DVD. I love it. Does it get even better or am I setting myself up to be disappointed? Perhaps I should just stop with the lovely season one finale?

Should I be worried?

For the longest time I used to go to bed at around eight PM but not fall asleep until about four AM and then have to wake up at six for school. Even if I did fall asleep, I would have trouble staying asleep.

Now, however, I am ALWAYS tired. I come home (2:30) and go straight to bed and don't wake up until the next morning, and that is with a lot of difficulty. My parents try to come in and wake me with no luck - it's like I'm comatose or something. And even if I do sleep for seventeen or more hours, I'm still falling asleep during school frequently.

This is having a big effect on my schoolwork.

So TQC, should I get it checked out?

this is kinda for homework

TQC, I'm doing a short answer thing on blackboard about a research study that says children who were exposed to more adult-targeted TV and movies are more likely to become sexually active at a younger age. In discussing the confounding variables, I say that the method of determining adult-targeted programming/movie is a little wack...they look at the title and then decide whether or not it was adult-targeted. I'm trying to think of hard evidence to this, but I'm having a rough time.

What are some TV programs/movies that sound okay for kids, but truly aren't?

If I used "Family Guy" as an example, do you think it would make sense? It sounds like a program about a family-oriented guy...but definitely has adult-targeted content in it.

Is this question too homework-y to be answered?

did your parents ever apologise to you for anything? what was it for?

my mum never apologised to me for anything, not for hurting my feelings or for being wrong or anything like that. she doesn't even say sorry out of courtesy...she only says it on accident, when she doesn't realise she's saying it to me.

Based on the market research I once did..
Its a given that many children have to be vaccinated before starting elementary school. These vaccines protect against Rubella, Whooping cough, measles, mumps, lockjaw, etc

do you know anyone who has ever got the diseases? and is this vaccine really neccasary?
Also what vaccines have you recieved? ever have any odd side effects?

What do you do to motivate yourself during cardio?  

I am always really good at pushing myself, but my boyfriend and I bought www.cardiocoach.com/, and I used it yesterday, and I thought I was going to die during the workout....and I feel AMAZING today.  It is, so far, the greatest purchase of the year.

My ex writes to me pretty frequently. Out of politeness, I write back short little messages that don't really call for a response on his part. But then he writes things like: "So I feel like when we catch up it's always superficial. We give broad-stroke updates (location, work, etc.), which I find particularly sad given that we were once so close."

My boyfriend found out I spoke to my ex frequently, and was hurt by it, because the conversations I had with my ex were long life-updates. I myself would be hurt if I found out my bf was also talking to his exes at length on a frequent basis, so I wanted to respect his wishes by keeping conversations between my ex and I to a minimum. My ex is making it difficult, however.

1. How often do you talk to your ex(es), if ever?

I'm a staff-level engineer at an environmental company. I've been here for just over 6 months.

2. What are your top 3 interests/passions? (things you can't get enough of- doing, reading/talking/thinking about, etc.)

Right now, running/fitness, cooking/baking, and medicine/health

3. What is your biggest current first-world issue?

I have a wonderful husband and marriage, we both have pretty well paying jobs that provide for us, and we have a lot of personal goals that motivate us, but we are both struggling with what we want to do with our lives in a professional sense. We both have mediocre job satisfaction and are considering furthering our education or completely changing careers in attempt to do something that's a little more fulfilling...

4. Have any of you completely changed career paths? Specifically from a higher paying, less fulfilling job to a lower paying job in something that you are passionate about?

I'm making garlic soup for dinner tonight, which I've never tried before. What should I do for a garnish? I'm thinking crumbled bacon and slices green onions (AKA scallions/spring onions,) perhaps? 

ETA: the recipe for thems that wants it.

TQC, validate me plz. (Or invalidate me. That works too.)

My friend passed away suddenly and I found out last night. I chose not to go into work today because a)I didn't sleep a whole lot, and b)like I'm going to be able to focus on work when someone I was once close with died. I both emailed and called my boss and informed him of this. A little while ago I put in my facebook status something about how I'm gonna play Mario Bros for the next 7 hours unless someone can find a better way to distract me. My dad sent me a message that said, "T - Suggest you delete the "playing mario bros" from your status since you didn't go to work - not cool. Concerned - the dad"

Is my dad being a douche? I think he is. Excuse me if this is how I choose to deal with things. I understand where he's coming from but I already told him that my boss knows I'm not at work and why.

Unfortunately one of my ways with dealing with this is going to be to talk about it a lot... I'm still in the denial stage where I feel like I have to keep saying it and then maybe I'll believe it eventually. So sorry if you have to hear me mention this a million times.

Oh, btw, I already gave up on the Mario Bros, haha. Fucking level 4-4.


ETA: You guys are right, thanks :)

for those who are living/have lived in an apartment:

i just gave my notice that i will be moving out at the end of february, and left it in the drop-box. today (i'm at my prents right now) they called to tell me that they'll be doing a walk-through of my apartment in 3 minutes. i still have over a month left and i'm feeling a little violated.
is this normal procedure?
i mean... there's some dirty dishes in the sink and dirty laundry in the laundry room. can they really call me THREE MINUTES before and tell me they'll be taking a stranger through my apartment?

what's the last thing that pissed you off?

ETA: i found this

Right of Entry

In general, with tenant consent, a landlord has a right of entry to inspect the premises; make repairs; supply necessary or agreed services; or show the property to potential tenants, purchasers or contractors. Entry is limited to reasonable times, and two days' notice of intent to enter is required. A landlord may enter the premises without the tenant's consent if an emergency or abandonment occurs, or if the landlord obtains a court order. A landlord may not abuse his or her right of access to the premises to harass a tenant.


though i did sign a paper saying i'll be moving out and i acknowledge that they will be showing my apartment to people, do they still need to give me two days notice?

behind the cut is a picture of my new puppy: Collapse )

she's 3-4 months old and my family and i adopted her from a shelter about a week ago. she currently weighs about 15 or 16 lbs and is expected to be a large dog. the shelter said she was a mutt and thought that maybe she might have some gordon setter or some rottweiler in her. what do you guys think? any ideas of what she might be? the colors in the photo are a little off, but her coat is black with brown markings.

i'm obviously very curious and want to know what she is. i looked at those kits where you take your dog's DNA, send it into a lab, and they tell you what breeds he/she is mixed with, but most of them have gotten mixed reviews. have you ever tried one? how'd it turn out?

Freaking out a bit.

I’ve been researching, but can’t find exact answers. My ex-boyfriend and I have been separated since July 2008 and we’ve never been to court. Long story as to why. Can he claim our mutual child on his taxes? I’m depending on that money to pay my parents back and to pay bills while on maternity leave. He has not even seen her since January or February of 2009 and has never paid any child support. I know I can talk to a tax professional, but I was hoping to not have to go that route and could save that $100+ to have someone to talk to about it. Thanks in advance.

ETA: Of course, the day I get my remaining w-2 is the day I freak out! I can't wait to get home! Thank you everyone!!! :D

1.)  When was the last time you did something stupid?  What happened?

2.)  When was the last time you and your S.O. got into a fight?  What happened?

So, I took my Doberman to the dog park today.  He was romping with two Great Danes, minding his own business, when another dog attacked him.  I wasn't really thinking straight, the dog was going for Tiny's throat, and I wanted to get the beast off of him.   So I grabbed Tiny by the collar and lifted him bodily out of the fight, used my foot to shove the other dog away, and put myself in between the two of them.

In retrospect, I realize that booting an angry pit bull in the chest and putting myself between it and its intended target was probably not the smartest thing I've ever done.  But like I said, I wasn't really thinking.  Tiny is scratched up, I've got a few bruises, and my shoulder hurts like a bitch from lifting 100 lbs. of flailing Doberman with my off arm, but otherwise we're perfectly fine. 

However, my husband is furious that I put myself in that position.  And what sucks even more is that I can't even fault him for it, because I did do something incredibly stupid.  I'm sure he'll get over it, but I hope that happens sooner rather than later.  I hate it when he's upset.

I'm currently taking 20 mg fluoxetine, 100 mg topiramate, and 900 mg lithium. I was taking 150 mg topiramate until about three days ago when I ran out, couldn't get a refill, had to call the doctor, and was informed that I had been taking too much for about a month because he'd lowered it to 100 in his system when we talked last (I do not remember this) but had never written a script for that (or apparently told me :D and seriously, I have had quite a few issues with this doctor). In calling the pharmacy, it was all sorts of messed up, saying I only was on it once a day instead of twice a day, and it was at 150 mg, and the fluoxetine was all messed up as well because of the scripts he wrote. Thankfully, we fixed it.

Since I started taking 100 mg instead of 150, I have been incredibly depressed. Is this a possible effect because of the lowering in medication?

My Medicaid will be invalid as of Monday because I make too much money (which is BULLSHIT, but whatever). I'm on the NuvaRing right now, and it will cost me roughly $65 per month uninsured. I am on it because the pill (which I COULD get for free) wasn't working out for me, kinda making my thyroid/PCOS problems worse. ANYWAY, long story short - if you were me, what would you do about that? I am considering asking my boyfriend to split the bill with me - is this completely reasonable to ask? I absolutely refuse to get an IUD because 1) it freaks me out to even think about and 2) I don't find it suitable for my needs. Also, I love the NuvaRing and it has been PERFECT for me.

Would I be better of just going by myself without a tour? I'll be alone so I thought a tour group would be useful.. but I feel that in this group everyone would probably already know other people so would that make it awkward?

where to find some lace shirts

Ladies of TQC, I am shopping challenged. I want two long-sleeved tops made of a floral stretch lace (to wear under stuff, but with the long sleeves etc. poking out): a cream-colored one with a round/crew neck and a pinkish/blush one with a v-neck, both fitting like a comfortable t-shirt, not skin tight. Googling or looking at my normal online shopping sites is not turning up much (google basically finds OMG NAUGHTY LINGERIE which is not what I want at all). Where to find such a thing, hopefully for a bargain price? Prefer to buy, not try to sew...

I want to make a music playlist. On it so far is "Wolf Like Me" by TV on the Radio and "Monster" by Lady Gaga (videos under the cut). Following this idea of sexy, evil monsters, what other songs would be good for this playlist?

1. I am looking to paint my diningroom/living room a thunderstom grey sort of colour, which I'd best describe as a dark medium grey with a slight blue in it. Anyways, the dining room half is poop brown and the living room is bright orange. My husband seems to think we can cut out the priming step by buying a paint-and-primer-in-one, Behr makes one I believe. Would this be bad since both halves are very different colours? Or would it not make a difference? Should I just prime the whole thing with primer alone first and save possible grief?

2. Do the rooms in your house/apartment/cardboardbox flow or are they drastically different? What colours are the rooms in your house?

My living room is orange, dining room is brown, kitchen is black and white, husband's bathroom is white, toy room is lime green, Son #1 room is royal blue, Son #2 room is bright yellow, master bedroom is red, my bathroom is turqoise, laundry room is pink.

We like colour.

When I was talking to my friend the other day she said she'd never get her hair cut short as it's not very flattering on fat people.

I disagree. Do you think short hair makes a fattie even fatter?

Inspired by the fact that I have a cold or something

Why do you suppose they made nyquil taste WAY BETTER than dayquil?

What medicine(s) do you take (if you take any) when you get a cold?
I take dayquil if I need to stay awake for school or work, and nyquil if I'm feeling achey (achy?) and know I won't be able to sleep otherwise

Ladies, drag queens, etc:

What kind of advice would you give to someone (*ahem* me) who has never worn makeup before but is so bored tonight that she is going to try it out with these supplies:

1. An assortment of colored lip-glosses
2. Liquid black eyeliner, and "brownish-black" pencil eyeliner...stuff
3. Two colors of eyeshadow (one is lighter than the other...both are brownish)
4. Black mascara (but I'm pretty sure I know what to do with that...)


I've been feeling not so good about my appearance lately, so I thought I'd try to look purdy tomorrow.

Suggestions for hair irons?

The recent hair post and the fact that my Pro Touch 1" ceramic iron died this morning leaves me wondering - those of you who flat iron your hair, what iron do you use and would you recommend? Are there any brands you would like to warn me about?

I have thick, coarse, frizzy hair, and my current style really works best straight.
