Any Catholics in TQC?

For Catholics, did the controversies surrounding the Vatican and the priests accused of sexual molestation change your view of Catholicism?How has this affected your faith?

For non-Catholics, how does this make you feel about Catholics, especially the pope?

I guess I'm just in a ~Catholic~ mood today because it's Good Friday

So, I keep hearing all about this new thing the kids are into: chatroulette. Mostly I hear you see a lot of penis.

My questions:
Would you recommend these penises for one's viewing pleasure?
Would you show your penis (real or hypothetically speaking if you don't have one) on chatroulette?
Would you recommend chatroulette for when one is bored?

DK/DC: Are you sick of the word penis yet? I'm not.

What commercial (or series of commercials) most makes you want to punch an advertising exec in the face?

What commercial (or series of commercials) makes you laugh or is very effective.

I really hate the Sienna commercial with the douchy parents. Also the Old Navy mannequin commercials

And, much as I hate to say it, the old spice commercials are a stitch.

 So I got fired from my job today, that I've had for a year and a half. The reason I was fired is because I had a status on facebook about not wanting to be at work, and being tired of my current job. "If you're not happy here, we don't want you here", said my boss. My facebook profile is private, people who are not my friends can only see my default and my network. 
My boss said he was also upset that I updated my status while I was at work, so I asked him how he read it. Apparently, he was able to get my browser history (which I suspected), but he had printed out my profile with the comment on it. He cannot access my profile without a password, and I ALWAYS sign out. ALWAYS.

Is it legal for the company to get my password off the work server (which is the only way this could have happened)?

tl;dr, dk/dc: Have you ever gotten fired? Why?

Okay, so I haven't splurged in a while and Aerie is having a pretty good sale/clearance. I've got two bras, three undies, pajama pants, and a shirt and it's all come out to $75. Worth it?

I figure 2:21 A.M. isn't the best time to make these decisions myself.

EDIT!: I just went to a few sites to sign up for some free stuff, and my empty-field history is suggesting that I've used Walter for my first name and Burkert for my last name. Weird, yes?

Asking for someone at work, which would you rather have/is  more thoughtful?  A boutique of personalized cookies (with sayings on them) or a personalized cut out cake? (It's just a cake that's cut into a certain shape (Like a guitar or a car. It'd be tailored around graduation and his favorite thing) It's for a high-school graduation if that makes any difference.

I start my new job today. I always get incredibly nervous and imagine everyone is going to hate me and say "EW EW NEW GIRL EW". I usually end up so nervous I get an achy in my tum-tum.

I have a $50 gift card to Amazon.com.
Over the summer, I'm going to be making a significantly larger ammount of money than I am now.
Should I save the gift card for then, and buy the camera I've been wanting?
Should I spend it now on something random because right now I'm barely making any money?

If I should spend it now, what should I buy?

1.) Does your appetite change on a daily basis?

For instance, this morning I had a mix of oats/oat bran with all natural peanut butter and some chopped walnuts for breakfast; a meal that normally holds me over for at least 3-4 hours. However, not even two hours later and I'm feeling the hungry rumble. Could it be the migraine I had yesterday? that my period is little over a week away?


2.) I usually work Sundays but I have Easter off to spend with my Husband! We don't have any family plans soo.... what should we do?? :)

3.) What is something you eat frequently?

There was a big storm last night and so it is really cold outside, and obviously my house sucks so my house is really cold as well. I am hungry, but if I go downstairs I will have to put the dishes away because they are sitting in the dishwasher and are staring at me. Will you tell me about all the yummy things that YOU want for breakfast to motivate me to make some food? Pictures welcome.

I'm going to a baby shower today and I can't choose what to wear. I have a really pretty blue shirt that looks good on me, but then I have to wear jeans.

Real Estate Agents

I called my real estate about some problems we have with the house (dodgy shower, broken drawer etc) and within days they have sent people out to fix things. I am really confused, real estates don't do things, and certainly not in a timely fashion. There is some kind of conspiracy - WHAT IS GOING ON?

Edit: Australian - Real estate agents manage the property (rent collection, repairs etc) for the landlord.
Edit ii: I told them these things were broken like 18 months ago and they didn't do anything then.

TQC, it is that time of the year again-- with the sunlight and all that-- so some warm weather themed questions:

1) I really hate tanning, and I am naturally very white (one of the reasons I hate tanning is I don't really tan, I burn, and then the burn fades into a tan),  but I also really hate tanning salons and anything that leads to ORANGE.  Does anyone have reccs for looking tan and not looking orange without going to a tanning salon?
2) Like, omg, where do you go for your spring and summer fashion? 
3) What are some of your favorite activities during the spring and summer months?
4) what is your absolute #1 favorite thing about warm weather months?

A weird clicking noise is coming from my bathroom. I think it might be the fan because when I turn the fan on the noise goes away... but WTF? There is no power going to the fan right now and it's making random clicking noises (no discernible pattern).

What is something you were trained to do on a job, and now cannot help but do in your every day life?

My first job was at a bakery, and the owners had a certain method to bagging bread. Now whenever I use bread, I always close the bag that way. Always.

Now that I work in retail, sometimes I 'face' products when I'm in other stores, out of habit.

 What things of yours do your parents pay for? Also, for reference, how old are you?

Inspired by the fact that so many of my friends just freaked out upon learning that, unlike them, I don't receive a monthly food allowance from my parents. We're in college. My parents are helping me pay for tuition and textbooks, but those are loans that I'll be paying back once I'm able to do so.

In the fashion design/ fash mag industry, is it crucial to get yourself involved in as many internships as possible in order to acquire the experience/skills needed? Is it easier for you to get into the industry after that? Does internship opens up to more opportunities to get connections? Or can you simply skip the interning part when you have an awesome portfolio/resume to offer? (for you to land yourself a job somewhere in the fash industry)

I posted a page back about my phone not turning on--but now I have another question.

My phone is a T-Mobile phone, but I have it unlocked with AT&T. If I take it to a T-Mobile place, will they help me? I'm thinking the battery might be dead, so I need to replace it. But, even if it isn't--could they look at it/help me even if I have it unlocked with AT&T? I'm not technically using their service so I didn't know how they would handle that.

Are cell phone batteries expensive? Do they usually have them at the store/kiosk, or would I have to order one and wait on it?

I've been a vegetarian for about ten years now. I'm not so much an animal activist (I own leather) but chewing meat or touching bone creeps me out. I can't disassociate the meat from something that was once fleshy, bloody and alive. Of course, I'm totally all for other people eating meat. (You're an idiot if you don't believe in the food chain, just saying). A few months ago I figured I would try to start eating meat again because I'm tired of being an inconvenience, and even if they are horribly disturbing, I want chicken wings soooooooo bad.

But I couldn't do it. I had a few bites each of chicken soup, stir fried chicken and beef, hamburger, pepperoni, deli meats, and some other stuff, but all of them just creep the hell out of me and I either spit it out or vomit.

TQC, how do I shake this?

What's crack-a-lackin'?

Do any of you crack 'weird' joints (ie not just fingers/toes)? How about your neck? Do you know of anyone who's actually been hurt by cracking their neck or back? I do it but I'm terrified that one day I'm going to paralyze myself or something. I'm worried but somehow I can't stop!

what do they call "making love" in other languages?

OK...if you speak a language other than English fluently, please answer: what is "making love" called in your language? I am not looking for dirty words, the equivalent of "fucking" or "screwing" etc., or humorous expressions like "making the beast with two backs," but rather the word/phrase used to describe sex between adults in a committed relationship. It occurred to me that "making love" is kind of a weird thing to call it, and I was wondering how other languages express that. So--in your language, what is it called and how does it literally translate to English?

It's for a poem cycle I'm working on, so srs answers are much appreciated, though I suppose I'll get non-srs answers as well (please just let me know if it's a serious answer, thanks).

 My boyfriend's grandpa is in the hospital and refusing care. I really like him a a person and he had such a huge impact on raising my boyfriend...I just really wanted him to know how much I appreciated and cared for him. I'm so shy, I think he wasn't really sure that I enjoyed spending time with him. Today, my shyness got in the way again and I didn't tell him how much he mattered to me while he was still lucid. Now he's going to be on a lot of pain medication for the short duration of his life. I feel like such a jerk. He deserved to know that he was important to me, because he probably doesn't know. And now he never will.
