If a female friend of yours spent the last year bitching about how tired she was of the pressure from her inlaws to get pregnant and how she doesn't want to have a baby for 5 more years, only to spend the last week dropping passive aggressive hints on her facebook (gosh, i hope the nausea goes away soon/now I know how Mom felt/my, how everything has changed...) and then acted pissy when you commented with, "so, are you pregnant?" and replying with "Guess the cat's out of the bag now!"  would you:

a: be happy for her
b: be tired of her drama-queen routine?

(The validate-me answer is obviously "b", btw).

I want to make Thing 1 and Thing 2 t-shirts for a couple of friends of mine. I have plain red t-shirts, but the only fabric paint I could find was puff paint. That'll work for the text, but I don't know what to do about the big white circle that the text is on. Can I water down the white puff paint and spread it out or is that a bad idea? Or should I do something else instead? I also have iron-on letters in white and black at my disposal...

masculine body language and boots

TQC, I require your services.

I'm currently in a "Shakespeare Through Performance" course in which we are preparing Henry IV Part 1 to perform at the end of the semester, and I was given the part of Hotspur. I have been really enjoying doing the first bit of acting I've attempted in about seven years, but I am running into some issues. For those not familiar with the play, Hotspur is a quick-to-anger, honor-obsessed warrior sort, who leads an unsuccessful rebellion against the king. He's pretty damn awesome. However, I'm trying not to let my feminine body language and manner of speaking get in the way of the character, who seems to be hypermasculine and full of energy. I've been trying to do a bit of research on how to deal with this, but most of the time I've been coming up with either drag king websites or articles about the effectiveness of females playing males in Shakespeare (which is super interesting, but not exactly what I need). Maybe I've been looking in the wrong places.

So, my question is: are there any good resources you know of that address the issue of actresses assuming masculine body language/speaking patterns for roles? Websites are great, and I have access to my university's library, so feel free to recommend books or articles that would be available that way too. Anything that you think would be helpful is welcomed. :)

tl;dr : I need to learn masculine body language for role in a play. Help? (ps: here is a clip of the character I'm playing, starting at 2:20; he's the bald and awesome one)

Another thing! I am buying boots! Ideally, they'd be useful for everyday wear as well as suitable for wearing as part of the costume for the above-mentioned play, and I'm looking at these three:

We're moving into a new place and there is a HUGE front window that came with no curtain or bllinds, no rods or anything. So we are thinking about putting up a Mexican blanket. But apparently this is not a 'classy' thing to do (even though I totally think it looks cool).

So I guess my question is...why are they not classy? How widely held are these ideas that Mexican blankets are somehow unclassy?

I wouldn't give a fuck, but the only reason I'm wondering is because we're running a business out of it and a ton of traffic goes by. (And obviously I want to attract the business of as many customers as possible, especially if they are the kind of people who look down on Mexican blankets because, after all, it is the most fun to take their money.)

TQC, I'm dog sitting for a few days. I will be there Friday-Sunday...on Saturday I am working from 8-7, so I'll come back to the house on my lunch break to let the dogs out, but then I was invited to do a combo birthday thing in Atlanta with a friend. After leaving the dogs in their crates all day, how shitty would it be of me, on a scale of one to ten, to leave them for some of the night, too? Of course, I'll let them out/feed/play them between work and then. If it matters, I'll be home all day Sunday with them!

My Friday beer class has a lunch potluck. I want to make cornbread but it's already 1 AM and I should go to sleep. What do you guys think I should do so I get to bring in cornbread tomorrow? We have access to an oven in class.

Should I:

(A) Stay up a little later, make the cornbread, bring it in tomorrow and reheat it
(B) Mix up the batter completely tonight, refrigerate, bring in my pan and batter and cook it during class, or
(C) Mix wet and dry ingredients separately, refrigerate, mix in class, and then cook?

I'd prefer to do B but don't know if that'll have any negative effects on the batter.

I went to Chicago with my friend (he needed to get his passport renewed, and didn't want to go alone). He bought my $50 train ticket, a gift for me worth about $20, and he bought us lunch at a really nice restaurant -- which cost $100+. He won't take any money from me. He said my friendship is enough. I beg to differ, and I want to get him something / do something for him since he has been so ridiculously generous and sweet, but I don't know what to do. Ideas?

I am a quiet, shy, artsy-type person. Where can I meet a quiet shy, scientist/engineer-type person who would want to date me?

What method of memorization works best for you?

I am having such a hard time trying to memorize my trig functions. I know about soh cah toa but I can't figure out how to apply it when dealing with quadrantal angles so I've been trying to memorize the sin=y/r, cos=x/r, etc but it's really hard to keep them straight. I've been having to keep my cheat sheet near me every time I am doing my homework and it's getting to the point where its slowing me down because I should know these by now.

Stove question

Last night I was cooking with a friend and we accidentally got some egg in the burner of my electric stove. And by in the burner, I mean the egg went into the shallow metal depression underneath the burner coil and through a hole in the bottom of the depression. There's a level surface and I can see where the egg is, but I can't reach it. (If my description isn't clear enough, I can try to take a photo with my cell phone, but I can't guarantee quality.)

Is there a way I can get into that portion of the stove to clean it up? I don't want to take it apart (I live in an apartment so it's not my stove, and I would have no idea what I was doing). If there's no way for me to get at the egg, will it be okay to still use that burner?

Alternately, should I just call maintenance and ask them to take a look at it? I've got some other stuff I need them to take care of anyway.

EDIT: Thanks for the advice, guys!

So TQC, say someone is living with their family and they go downstairs at around 11 in the morning to get breakfast and wash some dishes. Everyone else is asleep. One of those people is in fact asleep on the couch, and is woken up by the sound of the dishes being done. They then proceed to throw a huge bitchfest over being woken up. Would you have any sympathy for them?

Would it change your answer if this occurred at 7 in the morning instead of 11?

leftovers, prease

So for my new job that I'm starting on Monday I'll have about a 20-30 min. commute and have to be there by 7 (AND the clocks are changing forward this weekend, lolol). Needless to say, I am not going to be waking up any earlier than I have to to make lunch! What are your favorite meals/recipes/dishes to make for dinner that make great leftovers? I'd love to be able to stick some extra in a plastic container at night and take it out of the fridge to work with me in the morning. I'll have lots of time in the afternoon/evening, so preparation time/effort isn't really an issue.

Thanks in advance!

ok, this is no doubt going to cause some wank, but I am honestly curious about this.

Why is it that certain professions are expected to receive tips for doing their jobs and not others?

Do we not expect that everyone doing a job should perform it to the best of their ability and not that IF they do a good job then they should be tipped extra?

I can understand if you, personally, feel that a person has gone out of their way to help you that you would want to tip them, but why do so many people expect it for mediocre or usual-for-the-job service?

You wake up at four in the morning to the sound of someone breaking into your home. What do you do? Pick up a heavy object and go check it out? Lock yourself in the bathroom and call 911?

This week my friend was home for Spring Break. Her family lives in the middle of nowhere. A little after 4:00, she was woken up by the sound of glass breaking somewhere in the house. She sat there frozen for a moment, then grabbed the first two "weapons" she could think of - an old soccer cleat and the seventh Harry Potter book - and crept down the hall to check it out. She saw a man walk out of the kitchen, and she screamed. Her dad screamed back. He had been getting a midnight snack and dropped a glass.

for those that do take appropriate safety precautions, what do you think when you see people riding without helmets in general? how about when someone tells you that they don't wear one because it messes up their hair/is uncomfortable with their hairstyle (pigtails, a high ponytail, multiple braids, etc)?

how often do you ride? do you use your bike for commuting or for recreation (or both)?

do you live in a place with a lot of traffic, or is it fairly quiet? do you ride on the street or on trails?
