When is the last time that someone really surprised you?

During an episode that of L&O SVU, my fundamentalist born-again mother turned to me and told me that if we would just treat prostitutes better, and legalize their job then the world would be a better place. That it was just a job and she was glad she didn't have it. And then we had a real conversation about something we agreed about that I never would have guessed. It was kind of amazing.

salt

Can some salts be saltier than others? I have noticed in the past that dishes come out practically inedible if use equal amounts of Fleur de sel as I would if it were regular kitchen salt. But maybe I'm just convincing myself here.

If you don't give a crap about salt; what's your favourite food/dish/...
I'm growing fonder of one of my grandmother's fav recipes, mashed potatoes with corned beef and onions. It's so disgusting and weird, I love it :3

HALP TQC FASHIONISTAS

i'm thinking of buying this but i don't own any dresses in this style, nor have i ever tried one on. i don't know if this style would suit my figure and i'm also unsure if it would look good on my complexion. i don't have any great pictures for reference, but i have black hair and eyes and i'm really pale. as far as my figure goes, i'm pretty top and bottom heavy (my measurements are, or at least they were the last time i checked, 36-28-42). knowing all this, could i make it work?

EDIT: i understand that this dress, especially the pattern, is definitely not for everyone. i'm mostly just wondering if it would look alright on someone built like me, but if you think it's heinous and you absolutely have to say so, i guess you can let me know.

do you find jenny slate (relatively new castmember on saturday night live) adorable or fug?

I have an internship at the Cannes Film Festival next month. The main focus of the internship is networking, so I was told to bring business cards. However, it's really geared more toward film production students (directors, actors, writers, etc.) and I'm studying film history & criticism. Mainly history, but obviously I'm more likely to come across critics.

WTF do I put on a business card, TQC?

Obviously my name and contact information, but what do I list as my "profession?" I'm an undergrad, and I've only been a film student for two semesters. The people running the internship said to put "Director," "Actor," or whatever, but I don't really feel qualified to call myself a "Film Historian" when I'm only an undergrad. I was playing around on Vistaprint and wrote "Film History & Criticism" in that space. Does that sound valid?

Also, there's a space for a web address. I have a classic film blog, but it's just a hobby. Should I include this or leave it off?

One last thing: If I do go with Vistaprint, would it be worth it to shell out $20 for a cinema-themed business card, or should I stick with the generic free ones?

Anyone know of any good books that are set during the great migration on the Oregon trail?

how about a book about a post-apocalyptic dystopia?

Any good books that explore a villain's point of view? (ex. perfume: story of a murderer or wicked.)

I'm just very, very disappointed by this book I just finished reading and I'm trying to find something the exact opposite of it. IT being "pretty young thing triumphs over her personal demons with the help of her new beau". It's a formula that usually works, but this was the weakest ending ever.

At my old job, full time workers got something called a "floater holiday" for pretty much every major holiday (christmas, new years, easter, fourth of july, memorial day, labor day, thanksgiving, etc), that they could apply to any pay period for a little something extra. Had they actually worked the holiday, they would have gotten regular pay + time and a half, but none of them ever did, and they always stuck a part timer with it. The part timers get no floater holiday and no holiday pay, so they only way they'd get extra $$ for working the holiday would be if it put them into overtime.

Does this sound unfair to you?

How does your job schedule work on holidays to ensure everyone is treated equally?

I live in a dorm building and there's been a crazy knocking sound in the walls for the past two days. Every five minutes or so, it sounds like someone is knocking on the pipes. We can't find the source. We're on the first floor and it sounds like it's really close, but we talked to our neighbor on this floor and to people on the sixth floor and they can all hear it too. It's pretty loud. During the day it's just annoying but at night it gets kind of eerie, so I'm sitting in bed creeping myself out imagining what it could be.

What the hell could this be??? I know heating systems make weird noises sometimes but I'm pretty sure the heat is off, considering it's almost May, and this noise is waaaay too weird to be the heating.

Who do you think you are?

Can someone please explain the big deal about the TV show "Who Do you Think You Are?"? I understand the basic premise that they take a celebrity and trace their genealogy and make it some big deal on TV. I had fun tracing back my families roots back as far as I could go and it was a fun adventure for OUR family to hear about. But I didn't go bothering the neighbors with what I found. And I really don't give a darn about anyone else's family tree. I don't care who Sarah Jessica Parker is descended from or who Brooke Shields great-great-great-great-aunt's first husband was. I don't get why anyone else does either.

Also do they edit out all the "bad" parts? You know the full term children born 4 months after the shotgun wedding, horse thieves, drunkards and whores? Every family tree has a few even if they are famous.

I'm applying to a masters program at ASU. I'm currently in a certificate program at U Mass Lowell and have decided not to complete it. I've only taken two courses in the program and would be able to and would like to transfer one to the course work at ASU. The other class will not transfer. I'm filling out my CV for the ASU application and I'm at the point where I need to input my Education information. Do I include these two classes or just leave my BA degree info? The classes are not completed yet so I don't even have final grade info.

Or are you the kind of person who just calls whoever whenever if you feel like it? I'm especially interested in hearing from those who are comfortable with the latter. I sometimes feel like I want to contact old acquaintances because they were fun people, but there's always something subconsciously stopping me from just doing it.

In my personality psychology class, we are discussing indigenous personalities...personalities that exist nowhere else in the world. One of the examples my professors used was the Japanese amae. She defines it as a childlike dependence on others and passivity. I can think of a ton of people who are not Japanese who fit this description very well. I also looked up amae on the internet thinking that she may be just bad at describing it, but the further definition says, 'someone who childishly expects benevolence from others for percieved needs.' I know that I have been guilty in the past of having this mind set, like when I had to walk home from school and was dissappointed no one offered to give me a ride.

Do you agree with the idea of indigenous personalities?

Is there a better way of describing amae?

hey tqc,

Do you know if these tower type fans are worth a damn? I was looking for a new fan for my bedroom the other day, and they had a lot of those on the shelf along with the traditional pedestal type fans, but there wasn't one on display for me to try out or anything. Do they produce a nice gust of air like a normal fan? Or are they more like a ceiling fan, just sort of circulating the air but not really blowing on anything in particular? And are they as easy to clean as a normal fan?

Here are mine:

Menstrual cups - Superior in every way to tampons/pads. More convenient, sanitary, comfortable, cheaper, environmentally friendly... THANK GOD FOR THESE THINGS.

Fresh ground coffee - I used to just buy preground coffee, but I've discovered that grinding the beans right before brewing makes the coffee taste SO MUCH BETTER. I just use a cheapo $10 grinder and a Mr. Coffee drip machine, so I'm not fancy or pretentious about my coffee. But this tiny bit of extra effort is so worth it, guys.

what do you think?

last weekend was a friend of mine's birthday. she invited my boyfriend and i to supper with a couple of her friends. i accepted however, [very] last minute, something came up and i was no longer able to attend. i texted her to let her know this, and to offer my apology as well as a promise that i would make it up to her by taking her out for supper the following week. she didn't write back. i figured she was a little upset but she'd come around. i texted her again 2 or 3 days later asking if she was up for dinner that week and if so, to let me know. once again, no reply. it's almost a week now.

what do you think i should do? should i make more of an effort or leave it alone until/if she comes around? keep in mind we're not VERY close friends, or close at all for that matter. she's an old friend from high school which i've reunited with recently due to school (we randomly ran into each other).

Dear TQC,

I'm shipping a friend of mine some homemade lemon bars for her birthday. I'm doing overnight shipping. They're kind of delicate, so I want to put "FRAGILE" and "THIS END UP" on the box so they don't get all turned upside down and all around.

I bought a box from Walgreens that says "Handle with care" to send them in, but nothing about being fragile or which end is up. Can I write that on the box or do I need to buy an official box that has that already printed on there? Or can the post office slap some stickers on it?

Does it cost more to ship it if I tell them it's fragile and I want them to be extra careful with it?

EDIT (In response to padding the lemon bars really well): The thing is, I'm putting the lemon bars in this pretty little box, and then putting that box in the shipping box. There's still some space between the lemon bars and the top of the pretty box, so...I don't know how to pack them in tightly without mucking up the tops of the lemon bars.

If that even makes sense.

How can I pad the space between the lemon bars and the top of the pretty box?

Right now, things are relatively casual but it probably won't be that way much longer once we are both home from school and seeing each other a lot.

My friend knows about the situation and she thinks her sister wouldn't care, but said I can tell her if I want, sooo she wasn't much help. The broke up in November and she broke up with him, if that helps. The guy also says he doesn't think she will care and I shouldn't worry about it. But I am worrying about it. So, what should I do?

Crap, so I fucked up when I bought a plane ticket on studentuniverse. I clicked "show only youth fares" and this one came up that said it's available to students 18-35. I went ahead and bought the ticket because I'm within the age range and it showed up when I only show tickets that allow youth fares. I'm registered as a youth on the site. Now I get the email and it says it's pending verification. What happens if they can't verify I'm a student? Is the whole thing just cancelled? Or what happens?

Edit: At first I was registered as a student, and then after the purchase I changed it to youth. I didn't realize you had to register as one or the other (I registered years and years ago) and when I looked at my profile, after the purchase, I switched to a "youth" account. Now what?

Assume that the Ex and you have had problems in the past, but because it had been so long since they had talked, SO hadn't changed the phone name. This has only come up because The Ex all of a sudden started texting SO again.

 What was the last thing to backfire on you?

I sent my friend a "let me google that for you" link, and she was just excited that it googled for her, and didn't understand I was being snarky. 

What was the last thing to disappoint you?

The food show today. It sucked so hard. So many vendors dropped out compared to last year, and the other six years I've gone. I had a few good finds, but almost a third of the local mom and pop type vendors were gone. I'm guessing because it would have cost too much to rent space, but still. I was sorely disappointed, and very glad I don't pay to go anymore. 

Will you play a card game with me? I feel lonely playing solitaire. :(

How was middle school/junior high for you?

Why i'm asking: I just talked with an old friend from middle school for the first time in close to two years and our conversation reminded me of so many terrible memories. Middle school was quite possibly the worst experience of my life. :(

Do you routinely wipe the toilet seat after you're done using it?

Do you routinely check for skid marks in the bowl after you're done pooping, and then brush them away if they are there?

Staying on parent's health care?

I haven't been able to find an answer to this! Supposedly under the new health reform bill, young adults can stay on their parents' plans until 26. I'm currently on my mother's plan, which I age off of at 23 or when I cease to be a full time student. I'm turning 23 in June and graduating in May, so I meet both of those. Will I still be kicked off or will nothing happen due to the recent health care bill? I haven't been able to find any clear answers on WHEN the new age policy comes into effect, the terms/conditions of it, or how it will apply to me. I live in New York if that matters. Halp?

Is there any active community that you know of where you can post your resume and have people help you make it better? Or any other site? Free, preferably.

Will you tell my your favorite club/dance songs? Or anything that gets you moving?

I'm looking for music to work out to, and so far the only songs that motivate me are on the Queer as Folk soundtracks ;)
