What was the last thing that made you cry?
I just got back from seeing Regina Spektor live. She played a cover of "Hallelujah" by Leonard Cohen and then "Samson" right after, and I cried like a fucking baby.

If so, how?

So, it's 2:30 am right now. I can't sleep and I'm not anywhere near tired. I have a test at 8 am, which I haven't studied much for. I have nothing else to do after my test, so I can come right back home and go to sleep.

Should I stay up until then and study, then come home afterward and sleep?

Is there a way to mass delete more than one friend at a time on facebook? Myspace used to have that handy "edit friends" option where you could just check boxes and remove friends by the dozens. I need that feature in my facebook life...
EDIT: A couple people already solved this problem ^ for me! Thank you. So disregard that question!

What should I do for my 21st birthday? I've had a lot of ideas but I can't really decide what I want to do. I've thought about doing my power hour at midnight the night before and then the actual night of my bday doing dinner with close fam/friends.. I've thought about just doing the close dinner and no power hour.. and I've also thought about going to Vegas. Or if you guys have other suggestions I'd love to hear them.

So, I was pleased to see that due to massive protest on the part of students at my school, Ann Coulter's scheduled speech was cancelled. She was super pissed and ran her mouth off in my local newspaper, bitching about my school, how she was denounced on the floor of parliament and has had nothing but harassment since she entered the country, and a number of inflammatory comments about muslims. This is not a normal reaction for people who come to Canada, lol.

What is your opinion of Ann Coulter, if you have one?

Can you tell me about someone who inspires a similar reaction in you?

Are you picky when it comes to dating?  If so, in what ways?  Things that you need in a relationship? things you just want?

Are there qualities that are normally deal breakers that can be overlooked if other aspects are great?

If you've been with someone for a long time and the relationship has changed in ways that conflict with what you need in a relationship.. will you accept it, try to change it or leave it?

I'm not picky per se in the traditional ways.. I need respect and consideration for a relationship to work.  I need to be treated like a SO and not like a sister/mother haha.  I need someone who helps me want to be the best I can be and allows me to be.. I need someone who isn't negative.
I want someone who can keep up with my energy and likes to do fun things/travel etc..

I don't think I could just accept it..I've seen that lots in couples I know.. and I really wouldn't want to end up that way.  If it isn't changeable I don't think I could stay.
Don't worry guys, this has nothing to do with my personal life  ;)

Hey TQC peeps. I'm currently watching a marathon of Beyond Belief: Fact or Fiction.

What are your favorite creepy/scary/thriller-ish things to watch? It can be a tv show or movie. Well, anything actually. Even a book if, you know, you're into that reading thing.

EDIT: You can also post your childhood faves. Some of mine were Are You Afraid of the Dark, Allen Strange, Alex Mack, and So Weird.

I preordered something on 3/17, and it was supposed to be available for shipping on 3/21. It has not yet been shipped. In their FAQ they mention that shipping dates for preorder items are estimates based on what they have been told by the designer.

Is it too early to contact them about when it's going to be available?

Are you waiting for anything to arrive?

What was the last creepy thing you saw?  Excluding movies.

I have to say the last creepy thing I saw was on Easter of 2009 a guy carrying a wooden cross larger than him down a countryside road.  He had a bathrobe on and there was blood on him.  I believe he was also wearing a crown of thorns around his head and there was blood running down his head.  My husband was in the car and we both looked at each other and said, "What the fuck was that all about??"  I was relieved that he took notice of it too haha.  It was the creepiest thing I have seen thus far in the South since I moved here three years ago.

If I bought two pets as a Christmas present (don't worry we planned it out beforehand so we knew what we were getting and how to take care of them responsibly) for someone else, but I'm the one who feeds them, cleans their cage, and plays with them does that make me the theoretical owner instead of the gift-getter?

My mother is going to India for two weeks tomorrow, and after spending my entire adolescence being a big fat loser, I'm finally going to fulfill my teenagerly duty to have a ~crazy~ party while she's gone. It's also going to be a sort-of 20th birthday party for a girl I've known since I was six.

Anyway, what I desire of YOU, good readers, is suggestions of how to make my boring cluttered house into somewhere people will enjoy getting wasted in poorly-made and mildly humiliating costumes.

The themes are 'obscure animals' and/or 'inanimate objects' (couldn't choose between the two) so that doesn't really help with decorating etc all that much.

I need to jazz up my lounge room (couches/coffee table/fireplace/other stuff, it's just a regular sized average lounge room I guess) and the outside area, which is really just some paving with a table and some grass and whatnot.

Budget is as small as I can possibly make it, but I'm pretty crafty and have paints/glue/fabric/lots of pretty fairy lights and stuff. Also there's gonna be around 15-20 ish people.

So what say ye, TQC? I hardly EVER host parties so I want this to be fabulous.

Also, any music suggestions? Most of my friends are hipster artfaggy types, so leaning towards that kind of shit but still fun party music would be great. My music collection is not very party-ish.

Or if that is far too fucking long to be bothered reading, what would YOU come as to my fabulous party?

Monster job search

After applying for a job on is it ok to call the place to make sure they got the resume/cover letter? The reason I ask is that Monster tells you they received it so I don't want to look like a weird person who also had to google them to get their contact information since it's usually not provided on their Monster profile.

I have a friend of mine who always asks me my thoughts or opinions on different things and then just sits there quietly when I am done. I almost always count to 30 in my head and then say “What do you think?” or “What’s your take on it?” Anyway, does this happen to anyone else out there? 

Why would you ask someone’s opinion without commenting on their thoughts or providing your own?

Edit: Was it a mistake to post a question about Bananaphone and expect answers NOT involving the lyrics? DK/DC? What are more songs that are just as annoyingly catchy and get stuck your head that you can spam other people with the lyrics that everybody knows?

 TQC, I have a job issue. :[

There's a new coffee/book shop combo opening downtown at my campus. I applied for the coffee shop, and while I was waiting for my interview, the owner of the book shop walked past, and we got to talking. She found out my name, and seemed to really like me, and asked me if I'd like to come by and get an application this upcoming Monday. I said sure, had my interview with the coffee shop, whatever.

The coffee place emailed me today and extended me an offer. They would like a reply ASAP about whether or not I accept the job, and training goes Tuesday-Thursday. Ideally, I'd not reply to the coffee people until I can talk to the book shop Monday, but I don't think it's a good idea or fair or realistic or any of that other crap to give them a day's notice, and they might take back their offer for all I know.

I would grow to enjoy being a barista, I think, but my passion is much more in books - coffee is "just all right" with me. The problem is, I'm afraid that if I tell the coffee shop no, I won't end up getting a job at the book store, and I need a job enough now that I can't afford to not have one. So what would you do, TQC? Wait until Monday, talk to the book shop, and give the coffee shop short notice and hope they don't bitch? Deny the coffee shop and cross your fingers for the book shop? Or just suck it up and accept the barista job? Halp.

TQC, I'm going into my final year of a biochemistry degree next year, and during that year we do a research/thesis project with a supervisor. Now, the supervisor-student choices are made by a course coordinator, however, I know professors can request certain students (and usually get their way). There's two professors I'd really like to work with, and I'm trying to figure out how to approach them (neither are teaching classes of mine, so just going to them is out).

Okay there's this girl I've never met on Facebook and I can only see her profile pictures, and in her latest profile picture she's exceptionally cross-eyed, and in another picture she's cross-eyed too. BUT then in another picture she's really not cross-eyed, but that's just in one. In the rest of the pictures her eyes are closed or being hidden by her hair/her hand/other objects.

So the question I have is, what are the odds that this girl is cross-eyed?
