If you had to be a background vocalist, whose would you be? (let's pretend it doesn't matter if the band/artist is still together or alive or whatever)

Personally I would want to be a Pip, because I love Gladys Knights and the Pips have the awesomest 'dance' moves ever.

I was offered a full-time position as a lead teacher at my current job. However, that means I have to quit my 2nd part-time job as a lunch aide. I just got offered this position on Monday (after my lunch aide job), and then I didn't work yesterday or today. Tomorrow, I'm going to inform the school that I'm resigning, including a letter.

The teacher I'm replacing, her last day is the 19th, which means I can't give a full two weeks' notice. I'm going to explain the whole situation tomorrow before work.

Does this letter sound okay?

Is anyone else here massively intolerant to heat? Cold-loving creatures?

I'm getting really depressed by the insufferable cheerfulness of everyone in the world who yearns desperately for spring and summer. If the ambient temperature around me goes above 70F, I literally begin to feel ill. I prefer my surroundings to be 60F or lower. It can vary depending on my mood and how tired I am and how active I am, and I can be comfortable just hanging out in temperatures as low as 50, and if I'm actively moving around and doing stuff, I like it even colder. Temperatures 10-20 degrees below freezing do not faze me at all. I love it.

Am I really a huge party-pooping freak for HATING sunshiny warm weather? Is this kind of extreme inability to cope with heat of any kind indicative of some sort of fancy-ass medical condition? Or should I just move my ass to Newfoundland or something and get on with my life?

For those of you who ARE bizarre aliens who love warm weather and sunshine... WHY?? This is a serious question, what actually bothers you about cold weather? For me, if I am even a little bit warm, my throat starts to feel like I have something stuck in it and I cough a lot, my skin prickles and itches and feels like it is burning, I get sleepy, irritable, and nauseous... Does that really not happen to anyone else? What does cold do to you that's worse than that??

TQC, I can't figure out this riddle. Will you help me?

Here it is:

And girls comb their hair

I make celebrities look stupid

And normal people look like celebrities

I turn pancakes brown

And make your champagne bubble

If you squeeze me, I'll pop.

If you look at me, you'll pop.

Let's say that you're an owner of a company and you have to lay off one person.

Person A is a overall hard worker and does the job well, but has the shittiest attitude. Everyone hates him/her.
Person B is lovable and loved by all, but kind of slacks on the job. Everyone would be upset if s/he left.

Who would you choose to lay off?

1. I am looking for a relatively cheap date like activity to do besides movies/tv/eating. It's going to be raining too but I really want to get out of the house for a change, any ideas?

2. So back in Feb I was put on probation at work due to taking too many absences. My boss informed me that while on probation I would not qualify for my annual raise but that she'd get back to me when the probation was up. I've contacted HR and they say there is no such thing as a probation and it's been more than a month since the conversation occurred with my supervisor. Is it too early to bring up the subject again? How do I ask when I'll get my raise without sounding desperate?

Web Scavenger Hunt

I'm trying to do this web scavenger hunt to win a free trip (fat chance, I know!), and this one question has me a little confused. 

"During our special departure this summer to London and Paris, what special event will gardeners and FLOWER (it's bolded) enthusiasts get an exclusive behind the scenes entry to?"


http://www.goaheadtours.com/tours/LPF/london-paris-the-chelsea-flower-show.aspx Here is the link to where the answer is. I can't decide if it's "Kew Gardens" where the description shows that visitors will get to go "behind the scenes", or if it's something else since that really isn't a special event. The Chelsea Flower show is the event.

Which one do you think it is?

Have you ever won something big? What was it??

questions for the well travelled TQC member

1. I am visiting Daytona with friends next week for Spring Break. Is it going to be as scandalous as it is on MTV spring break? I am not really a get drunk and take your top off kind of girl. At all. Will I be shocked and feel the urge to run around with blankets covering people up?

2. Where can I go in Daytona that is fun at night? I like clubbing and I like fruity girly cocktails, but I am under 21. Will i be able to get into any bars? Are there any 18+ clubs? Most of the people I am going with are 21+ and I don't want to miss out on all the fun :(

3. This summer I will be living in Newburyport, MA for an internship. Is it nice? Are the beaches nice? It is an unpaid internship so I will be looking for a part time job in fashion or retail. Are there many clothing stores?

Thanks TQC.

For the males: Do you watch pornography?

This may seem like a DUH! question, but while we are on the topic of generalizations (couple of questions before this), I wanted to know how many men exist that don't care for it.

If you do watch it, how often?

Women, what about you? Do you watch it, and if so, how often?

For both sexes: Do you feel comfortable with your partner watching it? Do you know a person that does not watch it at all?

Challenge:

Got into a debate last night about movie sequels.

Can you name a movie sequel that was good?

Criteria:
Series do not count. While say, the Bourne/Harry Potter/etc series was good on a whole, it was planned as a series and therefore ineligible

All of the sequels must be good if there's more than one. So while Die Hard with a Vengeance was fucking awesome, Die Hard 2 sucked, and so did Die Hard 4.0.

I'm willing to accept sequels to franchises even if some members of the franchise were weak. The new criteria is the sequel must elevate the franchise; if a sequel is strong enough to counter-balance a shit sequel, it is eligible.

Series Reboots do not erase the previous movies (Batman, I'm looking at you).

So ideally, can you name a movie franchise that was not planned as a continual narrative that is consistently good?

Well, today, she tried stopping by again and my husband had to tell her that she couldn't be here and that she had to get permission.

Resume questions

So I got laid off today and need to update my resume.

If I'm doing a job specific resume and am only listing two jobs with quite a bit of job info that pertains to the job I'm applying for, do I need to include my education info?

I don't have any college info, just my high school stuff.

I'm applying for another job at the same company I worked for, and I'm thinking about emailing my former boss to say thank you for the opportunity and since she mentioned she'd offer recommendation, letting her know I'm reapplying at the company. Would this be acceptable?

I bought myself a bread maker from the Salvation Army earlier today, and it supposedly works.  The problem is that it smells very much like a thrift store.  You know, the skunky kind of smell?  It doesn't came with a manual, and I found one online but it says to use a mild cleaner.  What would be considered a mild cleaner?  I'm tempted to bleach the hell out of it, but I'm sure that isn't a mild cleaner.  How the hell do I clean this out and get the skunky smell out?

My friend just got dumped. She is a complete disaster. It basically came out of nowhere. She was totally invested in this boy for years; and they had plans to move to England next year, but it all just fell apart. She pretty much relied on him for everything, so its a mess... I don't think she knows how to exist without him. Her mom is really worried about her.

Saturday we were supposed to have a ~girls night at a club, but now we've changed it to a movie night in hope sthat we can cheer her up a bit. I'm not that close to this girl, but I feel really badly about the entire situation.

Long story short, I was commenting on my dad's Facebook status about wanting to come down to Disney in several months and get a hotel and parks package and the whole family should come over. My cousin/BFF said something to me on his status about proving that I'm not full of shit about going down there ("Um..prove that you are going to come down and get a package deal and blah blah blah."), which made me feel humiliated because I recently cancelled a planned trip down there due to finances, which I have had to do at least twice since I moved up here a year ago.

Did what she say seem like she was basically saying "Yeah right, you're full of shit"?
Is it rational to feel humiliated by that?

dressy event

so I'm going with a friend to a big shindig at our university (he works there, I'm an alumni).  It's dressy and the two dresses I have are a bit low cut. V necks, but not down to my belly button or anything.  Think that would be okay for a dinner event?  I would wear a sort of chunky necklace with it, and it's not too short of anything.  It's also grey, so I'm hoping to find some colorful shoes to wear...since it's spring and all.  I was hoping I could find some fun pink ones.

Same with Heath Ledger.. no one gave a damn about him when he was alive. All of a sudden he ruins The Joker and dies and he's everyone's favorite actor.

My best friend is getting married in a little over a month, I will be a bridesmaid. She hasn't chosen our bridesmaid dresses yet, she keeps postponing the dress hunt. I sent her a link to a few dresses I found, but I did say "just an idea."  Is that rude? Or pushy? It's her wedding and some people get annoyed by input.

My hands are killing me. They sometimes will hurt with the change of weather, so I figure at the ripe old age of 31 I must have some sort of arthritis, especially considering they've never been mangled in any sort of freak accident, nor have I ever been a child labourer.

I've been taking naproxen, which basically does nothing but annoy me when fighting with the cap makes things worse and then... nothing. I feel like some sort of heat might help but a heating pad + hands = awkward and not really effective. I can't sit around soaking them in a bowl of water, and I don't have a wax pot thingee for paraffin therapy. And Icy Hot on the hands just seems like a baaaaaaaaaad eye accident waiting to happen.

Is there some other thing I'm not thinking of that might help?

What do you think of people using human skulls as face masks? I mean specifically, goths who wear them on Halloween along with their Hot Topic garb.

Did you know it's perfectly legal to buy human bones in most states?

I did not.

Should I write a blog about my year off?

I decided to take a year (or two) off before going to grad school. I plan to do things that I've always wanted to do such as road trips (yeah i've never been on one...), living with my best friend, starting a punk band, trying to figure out what career path to take, etc.

Should I write a blog about it? I don't want it to turn into a journal of my personal life... what should I focus on to avoid that?

Velveeta and Spam

When you were a kid, were your parents more likely to have Velveeta or Spam in the house as a staple food item?

Velveeta at my house, but there was the interesting "sandwich spread" of ground-up Velveeta, Spam and ketchup.

How do you sign off emails to close friends?

I put my name, but I feel a bit weird, because duh, they know who I am, but it feels impersonal to not sign, and I would use a nickname, but some of them do not use it (including one of my partners).

What communication method do you generally use to organise events with friends?

Hai.

So, your ex from a bad break up three years ago suddenly contacts you and wants to be friends. They assure you that they want nothing but friendship, and even want to be friends with your current partner. Is this a bad idea?

My friend set me up for a web designing job and I've got the interview tomorrow. I've never been paid for this before so help me out, TQC. How much should I charge? Should I go per hour? Or just for the whole site? Its for a small company, if that helps.
