If you were going on a vacation to a new and exciting place, would you take as many photos as you could, or would you put the camera away and preserve all of the memories in your head/journal? Why?

Have you ever re-watched a movie that you loved as a kid and then have the memory of it completely ruined because you now realize how crappy the movie actually is?

I watched It yesterday and that was the scariest movie ever when I was 12, and yesterday I watched it again and all I could think of was how HORRIBLE the interior design was, OMG! And now my whole scary childhood memory is ruined for ever!

My 20th birthday is coming up this week and I wanna do something fun. I haven't celebrated my birthday since I was 15, so I thought maybe 20 is worth celebrating. I only have one friend here, so a party wouldn't work. I was thinking about going to medieval times (super cheesy, I know). It looks fun but it's 55 bucks and that's a lot. I wonder if it's even worth it.

What's something cheap and fun my friend and I could do?

Okay, so my best friend from high school... let's just say we've gone in separate directions. Long story short, our senior year, her mom kicked her out to live with her dad and she got in to drugs, had a baby, and is now on parole for stealing pills from the pharmacy she worked at so her boyfriend wouldn't blow their paychecks on them.
ANYWAY, she ALWAYS IMs me about stupid shit. I mean really inane bullshit I don't care about, like she really needs attention, and it's always immature bullcrap that I've outgrown and she hasn't.
"Man, I'm sore after my night with that Mexican lol" being the most recent.
I dunno how to explain it, but basically, how do I tell my best friend that she's acting like a fuck up right now and I don't give a fuck about the immature bullshit she talks to me about because I feel obligated to respond and should focus on more important things in life, like bettering herself and getting out of the life she hates, rather than hanging out with morons?
I want to have an intervention or something

(and before anyone says I'm being a bad friend: I bought her daughter formula for a month when she let her boyfriend spend all their money on oxycontin and she continued to let him treat her like that. She's not with him, but she still acts like a moron. Rant rant rant.)

I currently speak English, Flemish/Dutch, French, German, Latin, Ancient Greek & some Spanish and Italian.

Actually, if you don't do practical, just give me a random suggestion. I kind of love random, too, haha.

I just sent my ex a message on Facebook. We haven't spoken, minus drunken small talk at a mutual friend's birthday party, in over a year. I'm not sure why I did it but I like to be on good terms with my ex's and seeing as we ended things well there shouldn't be an issue. It's strictly platonic and there would be no chance of us getting back together seeing as I'm currently happy in a relationship.

Was this wrong of me?

I have 2-3 weeks off from work because there is seriously nothing for us to do. I am bored out of my mind being home all day because everyone else is working or going to school and all I can think of doing is cleaning and cooking and playing video games. If you had 2-3 weeks off from work, what would you do with all of your free time?

I'm writing a story and realized that one of my characters uses no contractions, I don't know why I did that but it just seems wrong to make her use them. Anyone else who writes, did you ever end up giving a character any odd quirks that you didn't initially plan on?

TQC, wtf is wrong with my jaw?

The past 4 or 5 days, the right side of my jaw hurts when I yawn or open my mouth wide. It's been getting a little worse each day. I don't think it's cavity-related because my teeth aren't sensitive to hot, cold or sweet or anything, really. My teeth don't hurt, it's just the right side of the jaw.

Do you believe in miracles?

A dog has been barking non-stop for the past FIVE HOURS. Wtf is wrong with this dog and how can I get it to shut up??? I can't see the dog, but it sounds like it's coming from next door. There's never been a dog barking problem here before, so I'm kind of worried about this one - what would cause a dog to bark for 5 hours without stopping?

[Edit: It's the apartment above me. I know this dog, he never barks. I'm worried that my neighbor is dead, should I call someone??]

I have a friend with a particularly horrendous mother-in-law who is quite possibly the reincarnation of Lucifer himself. She has been itching to start a blog specifically to both journal her experiences with this woman (now going on 8 years) and to share her mother-in-law's evil deeds with interested third parties. She will make no mention of anyone's true identity or physical location, and plans to use acronyms like "me," "MIL," "husband," and so forth.

a) Should she do it?
b) Do you think this is potentially a bad idea?
c) Would there be any foreseeable legal problems that may arise?
d) Should she tell her mother-in-law about her blog and/or seek her permission first?
d2) should she tell her husband and/or seek his permission first, bearing in mind he is completely against the idea (but because he is against the idea of her having a blog at all for privacy issues)
e) Would you read it?

Edited to add: this woman is so completely in denial that even if she were somehow to come across this blog, there is very little chance she would ever realize it was about her -- she would never believe that she was guilty of the things she says and does. I was once present when the MIL was over, and we were all watching a home video from Christmas clearly documenting something horrendous she had done, and the MIL flipped out, denied she did it, and accused my friend (despite not even being the one who was videotaping) of "doctoring the video to make [her] look bad."

A friend of mine's girlfriend's mother passed away suddenly last week (if you can follow that). 

These aren't particularly close friends but we are all pretty young and I know that losing your mom is a huge shock at any age (we are all mid-20's) and I wanted to do something for her/them.

What should I send to them??? 

I want it to be personal and not all cliche   insincere (a card can express sympathy & i will send one but I wanted a gift that is timely and useful).  I can send a personalized care package that I put together myself or I can send a commercial gift basket or gift cards or ANYTHING, I just want her/them to know we are thinking of them and we're friends through rough times too.

EDIT: Keep in mind I have to mail it.  I live some distance away from them and delivering it in person would be difficult unless they were hosting us for the weekend.

Sorry I have another question.

Do you think, being an artsy person and actually wanting to do something about it is, useless? pointless? Is it less... worthy than focusing on studies, more mainstreaming like being a doctor/lawyer/banker?

Would you be counted less useful and successful if you were more into artsy stuff like being on Etsy and all that than being some professional?

Edit: Is there any way you can convince your mother you are not any less successful because you are doing what yo love?

I'm flying to visit my long-distance girlfriend this weekend (we are both attending a conference, and we'll be sharing a room). However, she's sick and doesn't anticipate getting over it by Friday. I am fine with catching whatever she has if it means I'm able to spend time with her; however, I would preferably like to see her and also not get sick.

Is there anything I can do to preemptively build up my immune system against her illness (taking cold medication a couple of days beforehand, etc.), or will I just have to deal with it if I catch it?

1)When I was in like first or second grade, my whole class did this musical production where we sang and acted out a whole slew of children's songs for our parents. One of them was the one about the ten bears in bed and the little one said "Roll over, I'm crowded." etc. I was among the 10 kids dressed in pajamas to act out the song and since I was very small I was chosen as the "little one" so that at the end of the song I was left to say "Goodnight." This was only solo/speaking role I had in any school production I participated in.
What solos or roles have you played in school productions (choir, band, drama...)?

To the Masters of Confectionaries in TQC:

I want to surprise my girlfriend with chocolate-covered Oreos, her favorite sweet. Unfortunately, I am all but totally out of the milk chocolate candy tabs (specifically for making chocolate pops and chocolate-covered sweets) and I don't have enough time to get to the store and back AND make the cookies before she gets home.

I do have: four packs of fun-sized Hershey bars, Hershey's chocolate syrup, Topp's hot fudge topping, and I may have a package of frozen semi-sweet bits laying around.

Can I use any of these things in leiu of the candy tabs? I'm thinking the Hershey bars, but I'm afraid they won't harden/cover well?

 Nielsen, a company that accumulates statistics for TV ratings and such through the use of surveys and diaries, sent me $30 and a TV diary to keep track of and send back to them after it was done.

The problem? The diary was supposed to start on February 11th and go to the 18th. All of our mail goes to a PO box because our town is so small USPS doesn't bother delivering door to door or something. Anyway, I try to check the mail every Monday but usually forget and it can build up. This was one of those times and by the time I got the diary it was past the time it was due. So now it seems Nielsen gave me $30 for something I wasn't able to complete.

Should I feel as bad about this as I do? They sent $30 in cash, not a check or something. Would you just toss the diaries, feel lucky for getting 30 free dollars, and call it a day? 

I just feel kind of guilty.

I'm exhausted and have a headache so I just want to go to sleep. However I have to meet other people at the library in 30 minutes to finish a group project that's due tomorrow. I want to skip so badly but obviously I can't.

Alright so, if you had / have Bright Futures and at some point you dropped a class and had to pay them back, would you feel shitty? I've already got a few zeros in this class and I'm just really behind. I got my first ever F last semester in Chemistry and I do not EVER want that to happen again.

Have any of you ever done anything similar? I'm going to take classes in the summer so I'm going to meet my credit hour quota for Bright Futures, and I've got good grades besides this class that I want to drop so I'm going to meet my GPA quota, but like, I just feel like a failure.

Is dropping classes with the intentions of saving your GPA a bad thing?

EDIT: I should probably explain that Bright Futures is a scholarship in Florida, lol.

I may be wrong...
but the other day I had a customer who asked for a decaf green tea.
I told her we didn't have any and she insisted that she had some at our location before.

I explained my knowledge of tea and told her that I am pretty sure that one of the characteristics of green tea is that is does have some caffeine. It has less that black, but it does have a little bit of caffeine.

She told me that I was wrong and that we had decaf green tea.
I know that I am right about our company not having decaf green, but in general... was information am I missing on green tea being decaf?

In January I switched from using chemical deodorant to (unscented) salt cyrstal deodorant. Instead of smelling strongly of sweat, I now smell weakly of dead salty bacteria. Should I finish my current stick (which should last me another year or two) or should I buy a scented stick? What do you do when you've just started using a product but learn it's not right for you and you need to get something else?

I was typing up another question when I noticed liquid around my right arrow key. I hit the key again, and this liquid, kind of clearish white, came out from underneath the key. I was drinking the remains of the whipped cream from an iced latte, so I thought it was that. But when I tasted it it was bitter.

I'm a little freaked out. Has anyone else had this happen with their Macbook? I Googled it and found nothing.

ETA: Non serious answers always appreciated. >.< I wasn't thinking when I typed the question. Knock yourselves out.

I'm considering booking a volunteer programme with Real Gap. Have you any experience with the company? What do you think of them?

I'm from a tiny village in Scotland (population 2000ish) So the more I think about booking & the closer it comes to being a reality the more terrified (but excited too) I get.

If I go it'll most likely be South America someplace. Ideally Brazil or Peru. Ever been to these places? (Or do you live there?) What do you like/dislike about it?

Hello TQC! So I had my first counseling session with a regular counselor at my university. At my intake session, I explicitly requested that my regular counselor be female, and sure enough, they put me with a man. After a session with him, I suspect they put me with him because a relative has cerebral palsy, just like me. Even so, it was still super uncomfortable.

If you've had a therapist of the opposite sex, was it more or less comfortable than someone of the same sex?
With which gender have you had more success [don't worry, I'm aware that gender =/= success rate]?
Since it was only one session, should I give this guy a chance or should I request a switch at my next session?

...mac or pc?

I need a new laptop, one that i'll be taking to college with me in the fall. I know all the hype about macs and the fact that they are less likely to crash, but i'm comfortable with a pc and i'm not sure about the price. I'm just going to use it for the internet, writing papers, itunes, etc and i'm pretty clumsy with technology, so i'm not sure if the extra $500 for a mac is worth it. I'm kind of going into this expecting a laptop to not last more than 3 years, any suggestions?

About your degree or school subjects!

It's times like this that I realise how fun my teaching degree is. I'm making GIANT CRAB CLAWS out of cane and tissue paper. Painting them in the kitchen right now. I was afraid I wouldn't have enough time to finish them if I just worked on them in the morning and I think I was wise.

I'm being a crab in a performance tomorrow lol. We only found out about it today.

Other times, I've made great 'design and technology' projects, like little houses made from tissue boxes with electricity in them. Or played chasey in P.E. (teaching us how to teach, we had to have a warm up like the kids do). Done the Macarena in Maths class. Played with slaters under microscopes. All sorts of awesome things.

It's a lot of work, and a lot of hours, but there really are some great moments.

So what things do you love about your degree?

am i just the rebound girl?

I know this is dumb, but i really need some peoples opinions.
This guy Sam and I are currently having a thing. Him and his girlfriend of 8 months broke up about a month ago. He has been one of my best friends and we talk about everything. Even when he was in this relationship with this girl, he still came to me for everything (which made the girlfriend hate me.) I think i might of been a big part in why they broke up, because according to his ex he became too "emotionally attached" to me. Just about a week ago we were hanging out as usual and we kissed. from there we have evolved into a full on thing. he's so sweet and wants to take it slow because he's really happy with how we are right now. he refuses to do much sexually with me too because he doesn't want to screw anything up. He says he's so surprised at how much he likes me so quickly, and i really like him too. We are very alike and have always gotten along perfectly. and im so comfortable with him...i just dont want to get hurt. Should i keep having a thing with him, or should it stop?

Thanks for reading and thanks for the help everyone:)

my sister said i could have her bike until i save up and find one of my own(i'm going to paint it glittery purple and name it Johnny). now she's saying i can't have it because her friend/roommate told her she lets people manipulate her into "borrowing" her things and not giving them back.

except i don't want a fucking fixed gear bike my whole life but i'm not going to be able to afford a new bike before spring/summer and i want to start getting in shape beginning/mid March, whenever this tundra begins to thaw a little. see, i want to join a beginner's soccer team and i need to be able to stand around for 90 minutes whilst flailing at a ball.


what can i say to her to get her to let me borrow it for a couple months that won't sound manipulative?


i feel like i shouldn't even have to do this seeing as i'm her sister and we talked about it while she was here. and she never rides the damn thing! it's needed air in the tires since i was riding it around her apartment back in November.
