So today for breakfast I had a banana, lunch I had some animal crackers, dinner I had a veggie wrap and an apple. Why do I feel really bloated and gross? What is wrong with me?

Do any of you have tiny stomachs also? Or do I not have a small stomach and it's just something else....ugh. Lately I've been eating less and less and feeling worse and worse.

 Have you ever hung out with someone who's really nice and fun to spend time with, but is so full of SHIT it's ridiculous? I know a woman who lies constantly and it drives me nuts! What do you say to a person like that?

Dear TQC,
If you remember my sordid post about my love for my roomie with a blind date, I have updated in TQC_Updates.

After this whole situation, I got my tax refund (YEAH), so I am thinking about spending some monies on a tattoo commerating this chapter of my life.  Good idea, Y/Y?

How is it that my roomie can be screaming about artillery in CoD: WaW after this epic proclamation of love?

DK/DC: What is your favorite flavor of ice cream?


I'm going to Chicago this summer to meet up with friends, and holy crap hotels in the city are expensive. (I should've known: chalk that up to inexperience on my part). So now I'm looking for alternatives, outside of the city. (Then again, I'd have to worry about parking then, but it might be worth it, I think.)

So I'm looking for suggestions. Does anyone happen to have any hotel recommendations near Chicago?

For those of you who don't give two shits about my vacation, will you tell me your vacation horror stories?

TQC, How do you start your morning?

Do you have a "set" routine you cannot break?

Do you have things you MUST do, but in no particular order?

Do these things change with travel?

Not a morning person/DK-DC? How are you feeling right now?
Some mornings I shower, depends on what happened yesterday and my plans for today in addition to if there's time to do my hair. Probably 5 mornings a week I do. Then I have a cup of coffee, bowl and eat toast (the exception being when I'm at my boyfriend's house in Ottowa in which case I have a lamb'sbread bowl (yessss) and go out someplace for food.).

How do you put up with negative friends?
It's kind of too late to break up with them and you've already invested way too much.

For example, my "friend" wants me to friend her co-worker maybe to set me up as for a date or just as a platonic friend. She shows me his facebook page but I'm not really interested in either. I have no idea what's she said about me. Then I ask what she's told him about me, she goes "Not much. There's not much to say about you." I say, "Yes, there is." She's all "Actually, there isn't." but in a condescending tone. It's not the first time she tries to make me feel like shit.

What's the worst thing a friend has said about you to someone you later on became friends with?

Ever since high school, I've always been very nauseous in the very early morning(like before 9 am). I can't even brush my tongue if I get up that early, and certain foods that are heavier like oatmeal are guaranteed to be thrown up.

So my BF and I are trying to figure out when our first date was (it wasn't very defined I guess..)
We kissed at his birthday outing for the first time and were official after about a month so...

Would the first date be..

a) Pub dinner and a movie about a week before said birthday party sans kissing and "as friends" yet we were into eachother?

b) his birthday outing?

c) going to an outdoor concert after said birthday outing and makings outz?

d) going out to my show after deciding we were official?

YES I know it does not matter, this is just for the fun of it.

Say you break up with someone (dating or married). They respond by putting a bumper sticker on their car that says:

"All women are idiots. I broke up with their queen." or "All men are idiots. I broke up with their king."

How do you respond?

Does it change things if you guys have mutual friends who see the bumper sticker regularly?

I have recently discovered windowfarms.org.
I think this is awesome, but the room I am moving into only has one electrical outlet and Im not sure exactly how a hydorponics system would work out in my room. So now Im looking for alternatives.

I know I can just plant the damn things in soil, but the root benefits for putting them in water are great for small containers to still produce large plants. Can I just put em in water and change it myself often? Will they grow that way? Other ideas? Know any good communities I might be able to ask?

Ok, so somebody asked "Is it insensitive to describe something as orgasmic to someone you know has never had an orgasm?" 

A follow up question then:

Is it also insensitive to say "better than sex" to a person who is a virgin?   Particularly somebody who is well of age (not talking about college students since they are still kind of young to really be worrying about having kids etc...in my opinion at least).

My fiance and I watched some episode of Storm Stories where they talked about a tornado going through downtown Atlanta in 2008. That got me to thinking of a few questions...

1. We're on the third floor of an apartment complex. (The stairwell is outside - our doors open to the outside, not a general room.) If a tornado were coming, what would be the safest thing for us to do?
2. Does your city have tornado sirens? My hometown did, but where I live now doesn't.

I'm completely fed up of university, TQC. All my enthusiam's gone, and my work is looking a  bit impossible. People are telling me it's just a few weeks until it's over because I'm in my final year now, but my department are telling me that judging by my status as Very Behind at the moment, I should put off graduating until December, without the rest of my friends. I've lost my fire, and I don't want to be here anymore.

Can you offer me any advice? How would you try to fix it?

I friend and I were talking today, and came to the conclusion that everyone, no matter how happy they are with their life, has certain life moments that they look back on and think, "How would my life be different now if I'd taken that other route?" No really regets, though...just thinking about how you would have turned out differently.

So...what are some of your main ones?

Somoe of my biggest ones:
- What if I had joined the Army right out of high school like I wanted to do?
- What if I had accepted that full-ride football scholarship to Memphis?
- What if I had taken college seriously the first time around and not failed out of the engineering program?
- What if I had gotten up the nerve to ask out "the one that got away" in college before she got scooped up by another guy (only to find out, years later, that she considered me to be her "one that got away", too)?
- What if I hadn't bought a house when I did, leaving myself the option of moving for job opportunities (instead of being tied down here because the housing market tanked)?

Ramblings and questions

1)Does your grocery store have a dents/discontinued/overstock rack?
2)Do you buy stuff off it?
3)What does it usually have? Mine has a lot of vitamins, hairdye, and toothbrushes.
4)Does most tooth-whitening stuff taste like ass? I have toothpaste a notch higher than "blech I'm not buying this again" and toothpolish stuff that's a hair below "oh god I can't have this in my mouth." Do the trays or strips or whatever have that nasty taste?

On zits, specifically large squishy-looking whiteheads:

5)Am I the only person who pops zits instead of covering them or leaving them alone?
7)^ this is probably mean of me to think, even if I think it in a "oh god no-one told you" way, not a "oh god you're gross" way. How can I think something less mean?
8)Is "Don't pop it because you'll 100% of the time get a scar forever and ever" a conspiracy on the part of teen magazines, since some of their main advertising clients are zit-covering makeups? (This seems like serious hyperbole to me. I'm sure it's very possible to get a scar, but I've never gotten one)

My brother is doing a charity drive for the Special Olympics. If enough people donate, he'll jump into the campus lake.

9) Just based on his stupid haircut and smarmy look alone, would you like to see him jump in a lake?
10) How could he make that haircut look worse? I'm pretty sure he said it was douchetastic on purpose, but he is at least opposed to the popped-collar fratboy look. (He's actually an extremely nice guy)
11) This lake is full of goose poop, algae, garbage, and miscellaneous dead things (fish, turtle, drowned raccoon, occasional student). Would *you* swim in it, even for a good cause?
12) Ever since he's been rocking the douche look, he's had girls checking him out. He was walking past two girls on the lawn by his dorm and heard "He's hot." "I'd do him." -- he was pretty O: D: flabbergasted at that. Why do girls find him attractive?

Edit: Trimmed. I suppose I didn't realise how verbose I was being, trying to give backstory or explain the background to the questions.

have you accidently shown something to your SO(or friends/family) that you didn't want them to see? if yes, what was it?

last night I forgot to close my wedding inspiration photo folder and he saw a pretty good glimpse of it when I was shutting down my computer. We've been dating for 2 1/2 years, but I don't really want him to know that sometimes when I'm bored on the internet I look at wedding stuff and save picture to my computer. Also, I left livejournal open and he now knows my user name. That was fun trying to explain what my username meant.

what was the last thing someone told you that you didn't want to hear?

my boyfriend told me that the decision to go back to school for my second bachelor's degree is my decision alone and i have to do what's best for me. what I really wanted him to tell me what he thought of the idea, how he felt about it and that he would support me 100% abd be there for me through it all.

also, that he might have to move for a cop job, even though he hasn't applied for any stations in the area. i really don't want to go back to school, thinking he's going to leave me and move away halfway through it. its really stressing me out.

Das Deutschlandlied

I have a sort of loopy professor who gets things wrong a lot. she's nice, but I don't trust half of what she says. today she told us a story of a time she was in Berlin, riding the U-Bahn and a hippie looking guy got on with a guitar. He began singing and playing 'Deutschland über alles' and she became so offended and started looking around the subway car, hoping someone would make him stop. No one did, but when it was her turn to get off, she said she walked up to him and said 'Shame' in German.

My question is this: isn't this still the national anthem of Germany, at least in part? Doesn't it pre-date Nazism? Was there really any reason for her to get offended? She seemed shocked that no one else on the train stopped the guy, but I'm taking that as an even stronger sign that they saw no reason to since the song has a more complex history than she understood.

Have you ever heard of a woman, upon getting married and taking her husband's surname, giving up her middle name and assuming her previous surname as a middle name?

The parent of a six year old child is forced to move her and her children in to a relative's home after being evicted from her home. The parent was never home because she worked two minimum wage jobs, which she was made to work to "pay back" the Welfare she was on, and therefore never saw her children. The six year old found a gun in the relative's home, brought the gun to school, and fatally shot a classmate.

My mother and cousin are having a feud of sorts. My mother loaned my cousin some pictures to copy. This was a few years ago. She still hasn't returned them. Now this is like the straw that broke the camel's back to my mother, since they've had lots of drama before and this just is on her mind lately. I love my mother but I also really love my cousin, and I like hanging out with her cause it is nice to have that older sisterly type connection with someone. I've told them to keep me out of the middle of it but my mother still finds ways to make remarks about it to me and my cousin as well. It's making me be bitchy and snap. Like today I was at my cousin's and happened to be texting with my mother, it could have been anyone for all my cousin knew but she was like "What's your mother's major problem now!?" I snapped at her. It's really stressing me out.

How could I handle this situation better? I don't want to give up my friendship with my cousin, which would be my only option because I live with my mother.

School Clubs

I'm a member of my school's whiz quiz and a pretty decent one, I think. We made it to Nationals, but our teacher was only allowed to bring certain people to go. The way she decided was that she tallied up the attendance and those who attended practices the most could go.

I was cut out and feel that this is slightly ridiculous, especially since my mother passed away in the middle of the school year and I didn't even attend school, not to mention practice.

Should I try to contest my teacher's decision by going to a principal or vice-principal? Or should I just let things lie and forget about it?

People, I have a school assignment that I'm actually really excited about, and since I don't want to mess it up, I came to you. I have to take an argument that's floating out in the world and analyze the persuasiveness of each side, how they're doing what they're doing, etc.,

BUT I DON'T KNOW WHAT TOPIC TO PICK. The only thing off the table is the abortion debate! So, TQC, what do you think is the most interesting debate/argument happening in the world? It doesn't have to be big like abortion, just--anything, which kind of frog is best flycatcher, anything you think is interesting.

What are your favorite films that are set in a college/university? They don't need to be ABOUT being in college (although they can be), as long as they take place there. Please give a title and brief plot synopsis and/or why you like it. Weird independent films are a plus.

[[I'm graduating in a month and want to watch some movies about people in college before I feel like I'm no longer part of that world. Weird? Probably, but that's how I roll.]]

What the hell is that website that rates how much ads are objectifying women? I've Googled it up and down and I can't think of it and it's driving me crazy. They had a section for good ads as well as bad ones. It's a really simple name.

My son thinks we should permanently retire the phrase "think outside the box." As for me, I'm really sick of "put on your big girl panties."

What trite, overused expression would you like to strike from the language now?

What's the best way to tone your thighs and abs?
When you gain weight, where does yours go?
Should I take summer classes and get some of my certifications (CPR, first aid, lifeguard) or spend the summer looking for a job/goofing off/partying?


okay, so i need help with my phone, i dropped it in water...
this happened to me before with the same phone, and i put it in rice. this time around, it didnt shut off so i thought it was fine, but turns out it was acting weird. so then i shut it off and turned it back on, it was just like blinking and shit. i have it in rice.

problem is, all the websites tell me i shouldnt have turned my phone on and off or it short circuits it -_-

so my question is, have you ever had water damage to your phone? did you act like a moron and turn it on and off like me? did it still work afterwords?

if you dont know dont care, what cheap new phone should i get?? (i have verizon)

Inspired by that question about what I'm anticipating in the future, what should I do in order to prepare me for not having a stable home? My parents have sort of thrown me out, and I can't stand to live back there for long either. I need to reduce my tat, I know that much, but what else can I do to help myself not be homeless?

Do you play an instrument? 

How long have you played?

How often do you practice? 

What kind of music do you play? 

and, if you don't play an instrument, do you want to learn one? What kind of music would you play? 

Blackberry's and fake nails.

For any women out there that have Blackberry's, have you ever been able to get a set of fake nails and still be able to type easily/properly on your phone with such small buttons? What was your experience?

I made an appointment today to get my nails done, and then I realized later on that the nails might make it really hard/annoying to type - Already when my thumb nails get a little bit long I can sometimes find it really bothersome.
I see girls all the time with fake nails able to type on their Blackberry's, but I don't know how they do it! 


So I just watched "Spanglish" the other day. Every time I watch it, all I can think about is how good that sammich Adam Sandler makes must be.

So my question:
Have you ever wanted to make a food or beverage, or have you made food that you saw in a movie or read in a book? (excluding the obvious of cookbooks/cooking shows etc)

What was the last thing you learned that you honestly could not believe?

If you speak a language other than your native one, how noticeable is your native accent?

I just found out today that my cinema techniques professor is French., after being in her class for 4 months. As in, was born and raised in France, lived there until college, speaking French as her native language. I never would have guessed in a million years. She has a perfect American accent, like she was raised in the middle of Illinois. I never ever ever would have guessed.

I am thoroughly impressed. How does she do it? How long does it take?
