Let's assume a machine exists that'll let you relive any part of any relationship. It could be the best week of the relationship or the entire thing from start to finish or anything amount of time in between. Would you want to relive any of your past relationships or are they better left in the past?

Neighbors

Do you eavesdrop if you hear your neighbors yelling?

Do you have any good neighbor drama stories to tell?

Tonight, the people who live in the apartment across the hall from us were yelling a bunch and it turned out that the boyfriend of the girl who lives there hit her. So the girl & her roommate were yelling at him to get out. They then called the police, & I guess it was a slow crime night in Boston because there were at least 4 cops around at one point, including a motorcycle cop. And she threw all his stuff out on the street. They left their apartment door open the whole time though, so we kept looking out our peephole to see what was going on. Nothing like that ever happens in our building, so I was pretty surprised.

TQC, I am up at 1:30 AM on a Saturday writing what is supposed to be a 10 page group paper because two of my group members haven't been to class all week and are ignoring all Facebook messages and emails.

How swift and unusual should their punishment be? Any ideas?

It's 2:40 am here. I don't need to sleep in all day tomorrow, because I have to go to bed early tomorrow night. But, I'm not that tired.

Should I try to get to sleep by 3 am, or should I stay up and watch a movie I've been meaning to watch, and hopefully be tired by then? 

What's the last movie you watched? Was it good?

music questions

What style headphones do you prefer? What are some songs you can listen to over and over without getting tired of them?

My answers: 
I like the ones that go over the ear (they have a piece on the back to keep them from falling off your ears, not the headband thing). The ear bud things don't fit in my ears comfortably. My ears are small.

It depends on my mood, but lately I've been addicted to Destination Nowhere by ERIKA (a Japanese Pop singer. She also starred in the J-Drama series 1 Litre of Tears).  I can't get enough of that song.

So my almost 5 year old son has managed to get poison ivy.

Needless to say, he's pretty effing miserable. I think it is a bit worse due to the fact he has really sensitive skin (eczema breakouts ALL the time now).

What should I do to cheer him up and make him quit thinking about how itchy he is?
Can you recommend any tried and true products or home remedies to make him less itchy?

Have you ever had poison ivy? I haven't.

If so, was it in a funny, yet embarassing spot?
One of my friends decided to have sex in the woods and ended up with it all over her ass. Her boyfriend ended up getting it on his balls.

dk/dc: what is the last surprisingly painful injury you've had?
all this week i've given myself numerous paper cuts (when it rains, it pours etc) and yesterday one i got is right on the underside of my knuckle, so every time i bend my finger, it busts open :( soooo i have a giant bandage on it keeping my finger straight. i look like an idiot :(

On a scale of 1-10, 10 being a lot, how important is Easter for you? Do you rank it with holidays like Christmas (i.e. fun, great holidays)? Or is it just whatever?

What are you doing today?

ETA: Maybe a 1, because I get free candy. But really, it's just whatever.

Working, eating ham, doing homework.

The other day I was at Wal-Mart and in kind of a hurry. I saw some sad looking orchids that were part of their seasonal Easter display. I wanted to rescue at least one because I knew they would just wind up in the trash, but I was on my way to work, and then to the gym, and you can't just leave orchids in your car....

Should I go to Wall-Mart today and buy them, since I now have the time, and because they'll be on super sale? Or am I disproportionally, unnecessarily, worried about them?

Your friend got stabbed almost to the point of death, is on life support and was unconscious for days. His dad is from out of town and has no connections in the city. Would you let your friends dad stay with you? You've never met his dad.

I'm not sure how long my friend will be in the hospital but his dad is staying with me and my family. It's only a little bit weird, we have a bed set up for him by the back door and gave him a key. I've given him towels, some dishes while he's here (the best ones) and a spare key so he can come and go. Should I also let him eat our food or should he take care of that himself? 

He's gone all day (ALL DAY) to be in the hospital and he comes back at night. I see him for about an hour each day but it's weird to hear some guy downstairs walking around when you're trying to sleep.

What are your plans today?

Have you seen the movie Food, Inc.? If so, how did it affect you?

1. Every so often I grab all the comforters in the house and head to the laundromat and stuff them in the super-giant front loaders, but I never know how much detergent to use. These are the really big washers, some of them labeled five-loader, six-loader, up to eight-loader machines. How much detergent should I add?

2. I went to the dentist to have three bad teeth extracted. When my mouth recovered enough for me to run my tongue over and around, I realized that he extracted two bad teeth and one tooth that had already had a root-canal and only needed the crown put back on. What does the dentist owe me?

Favorite Non-Comedy TV Series?

My roommates and I are going to be bored tonight so we thought we'd find a new TV series to watch.

What's your favorite non-comedy TV series?

Bonus points if it's a non-American series because there's a higher likelihood that we've never heard of it before.

I have a huuuuuge cystic pimple that WILL NOT go away. I've been washing it with salycilic acid in the shower and applying benzoyl peroxide during the day. I use tea tree oil as a cleanser at night (always have). Last time I had one of these it lasted 4 months, I went to the derm and got an expensive injection, and it STILL didn't go away.

I'm going to the pharmacy tomorrow. Have you tried any product other than salycilic acid and benzoyl peroxide that has worked well for you? Or any home remedies? Google has some remedies but I'd like to hear firsthand from someone who's tried a product that has worked. I really want this to go away or at least go down significantly by this weekend. )-:

I know a lot of TQC majors in the fine art of literature one way or another, and being in science, i am really stuck here.

I have to write an essay for the 15th that is on In Cold Blood. I was told that i need to write about what his description of the setting communicates, which isnt the part im stuck on. I have to compare it against a 'scholarly article or book chapter' (which i guess means from a piece of reference material?) that is also focused on the setting. I understand the idea of research, but as i never typically look up scholarly articles, i asked my prof for assistance. He said i could simply "google a scholarly article online", but im trying with no avail. We cant use e-zine articles, and im not really finding much else that isnt study notes. Is there some secret English major site that i am missing?

Obviously i will be going to ask a librarian this week but if i can just google it...

Food, sex, and the grammatically impaired

 What is your "death row" meal?

Who is on your "laminated list of five?" In other words, which five celebrities would you consider having monkey sex with, even if you're in a serious relationship or marriage? As a rule of the list, your partner must allow it.

Also, when in disagreement with somebody over SOMETHING online, and they reply with an honest-to-goodness "ur a idot" (idiot), does it take away the credibility of the statement?
