What would you do/say to this fellow Nick, who was bad mouthing your best friend and then sent her this message?

Rundown for the tl;dr people:
This Nick called my best friend Amanda, fat and ugly (Which she is NOT) in a public setting, I called him out. He said he would apologize and after several days when he still hadn't she requested he do so politely on his facebook wall.  This was his response. The bold parts are for you guys.

Ps. Original grammar has been preserved.  You think a degree from one of Canada's best universities would help... I guess not.

Does anyone know, or can anyone point me to somewhere that tells, how many family courts there are in the U.S.? My googlefu fails me.

Did you believe in fairies when you were little? Did you have any special fairy friends that you liked to play with? If you believed in fairies, do you remember who told you about them?


My older sister taught me about fairies and I have a lot of fond memories about doing things fairy-related with her.

My live in boyfriend left for a month a day ago, and so this is my 2nd night sleeping alone. The first night my sister stayed with me so I wasn't really ALONE, but now im TRULY ALONE, and I am way too scared to turn out the lights to sleep :(

Will you turn out the lights for me?
Who is sleeping alone tonight?

I have to get food that is edible straight from the fridge or microwaved until the 29th or 30th, when I'll get an apartment and have access to a stove. TQC, what food do you suggest I stock up on that is cheap(ish), microwavable/edible cold, and doesn't taste like ass?

What are some good, mellow classic rock songs with recognizable instrumentation that sounds nice on piano? I have two hours to learn some background music. It can't be too overplayed or have a message that would be deemed inappropriate by a catholic school administration, even though there won't be a singer. Not being about drugs, death, or depressing things is a plus. I was thinking something like "Lights" by Journey, but I want to learn something else.

tl;dr: Classic rock songs that sound good on piano?

ETA: This is for a highschool graduation mass - songs about failing at life are a no.

So remember the job with the non-existent dollar raise?
We were supposed to get paid yesterday but there was negative $7000 in the account.
It's Saturday, I have $5 to my name, and no one can get in touch with the owner.

What do you do in this situation?

i'm watching an old ass episode of The Daily Show on the website and John just made a joke about fake names and said "I.P. Daly and Michael Hunt... if you don't get it now, you will in about 5 minutes."

Did you have any friends with weird parents when you were growing up? Will you please tell me stories about them?

I had one friend whose mom was...interesting. Whenever I would go over to her house, she would make me eat food without asking me if I liked it or wanted any. I remember, one time, she said that she wouldn't take my friend and I to the park unless I drank a shot of wheat grass juice.

Another time, my friend threw a sleepover, and her mother sat down in the living room with us and just...stared. We tried to pretend she wasn't here, but it was really awkward. And then, while we were watching a movie that had Freddie Prince, Jr. in it and squealing about how cute he was, her mother suddenly barks at her daughter, "Daughter, stop shrieking like that, you sound like an idiot! God!"

Then, at the end of the night, she brought out a sleeping bag and slept in the living room with us. Talk about a buzz kill.

You and your SO have been together for 30 years. They confess to you that 3 years into your relationship they had a one night stand with someone they never saw again. You have never been unfaithful to your SO, and the two of you have always had a very good and healthy relationship. How do you react?

TQC, I have approximately 50 million tickets from a local arcade that I can redeem for prizes.

I am moving to a different neighborhood tomorrow. Should I take these with me and continue collecting them so I can get a ~really big prize~, trash them, or just redeem them now?


Alternatively, what prize should I get? bonus points for non-srs/creative

texting mishaps

a few minutes ago i was talking to my mom on text about sewing and accidentally made this typo: "i never learned how to hand sex but i figured it out now."

a friend of a friend sent this gem out while using t9 on her phone: "i locked my jews in the car!"

and my best friend, while in an argument with her ex-husband accidentally sent "hug?" instead of "huh?"

what is your favorite texting mishap?

My son has a classmate called Sebby. Last week I heard another teacher refer to "Sebastian getting on the bus" and it finally hit me that Sebby (in this case anyways) is short for Sebastian. I was dumbfounded for some reason. I realized I would have never made that connection on my own.

What was the last thing that made you go, "HUH, WOW"?

What was the last truly ridiculous thing you googled?

I just googled 'memorial day 2010' because I had no idea what day it was this year. A very helpful site pointed out that it's always the last Monday in May. Which I knew.

Why am I so fucking dumb today?

Are you dumb today?

When was the last time you had a dumb day?

Do you have a favorite letter?

What is your favorite restaurant and what do you like to eat there?

Mine is this little family-run pho shop called Super Bowl (lol). You can get a GIGANTIC bowl for, like, $3 and they give you this awesome tapioca pudding thing after for free. I always get just regular, plain ol' pho with no meat or anything, then I load it up with bean sprouts, lime, basil, cilantro, hoisin and sriacha. SO SO SO SO SO SO GOOD. OMG.
omg. onoz.

Danger! Danger! High Voltage!

So there is a girl I've known for a while.

She's super cute, totally rad, down to earth etc. etc. etc

How do I "get closer to her" without being a creep? Is that right? I have no idea, I've been out of the dating game for a while.

Also please reply to other people's comments with answers to the above questions?

TQC, my SO's mother is being ridonkulous again. I'm going with him and a bunch of his friends to a casino next weekend and she doesn't want me to go because she thinks that my boyfriend would have to take care of me the whole time. Uh, lady? I'm twenty two, can defend myself, and can make friends. What ridiculous thing(s) have your SO's parents said to/about you?

When people make comments and/or as questions about you, what's the most annoying thing that could talk about/ask? As in, there's a common thing people ask or say about you and people ask/say it enough where it now drives you nuts? Me being Asian. Where was the inappropriate situation where they asked/said comment? In a job interview.

What is your opinion on it?

If you had to give up either facebook or TQC forever, which would you choose?

I think it's boring as hell, maybe cause my RL friends suck.
Definitely doesn't live up to the hype.

discount park tickets

Have any of you bought discount amusement park tickets online? I'm looking for legit sites and don't know who to trust/not trust. OR if anyone knows where to get the best coupons (in person) for Busch Gardens Williamsburg, that would be great too.

To any of you who read/have read Anne Rice, I loved Interview with the Vampire, The Vampire Lestat was a'ight, and I couldn't even get through Queen of the Damned. However, the other day I read up on the Mayfair Witches series and the first couple books sounded interesting.

Are they worth reading?
i ain't into that!

TQC, let's play pretend.

You are the head supervisor of a school district in your town. For whatever reason, it has become necessary to plan out scheduled Zombie Attack/Virus Outbreak Drills.

How would these play out?

If possible, draw these plans in mspaint. :3

alt question: You are the zombie, what do you do?

I used to have an amazing complexion and beautiful skin; it was the one thing people complimented me on. Now my forehead and chin/mouth areas have clogged pores and blackheads out of the ass; my forehead is way worse than my chin. They're not whiteheads, but I have a bad habit of picking and sometimes they'll get infected. I've noticed that in bright light you can see bumps under my skin on my cheeks. My face tends to feel really grimy now and has a weight to it, like I'm wearing a mask that is unnatural and disgusting. I switched to Clinique's system and my skin seems to have that healthy glow again but it doesn't get rid of the clogged pores. I do smoke and I eat well but I did reintroduce meat to my diet. I can't think of anything else.
What's happening?! How can I treat this?

Have you ever eaten total shit at work? What happened?

Is there anything you know of that can help lower the effects of caffeine hours after it's been in your system? Google is pretty much screaming at me that it's impossible, but I just want to make sure. I drank three glasses of sweet tea while still under the effects of Xantax. I feel really trippy and I can't get anything done.

walking tacos

I went to a street festival today where they had walking tacos. I didn't see any and I didn't order one, because I kept thinking why can't you just walk around with a regular taco, hello. So I had to google it. Ew.

Have you ever eaten a walking taco?

What is the weirdest food you've ever eaten at a street festival or fair?

I just started a new job last week and I'm currently apartment hunting (I moved to a new city a few months ago). All of the places I've gotten applications for require your last two pay stubs, and I won't even get my first paycheck until the first week of June. I have been homeless for 6 weeks already and I am getting pretty tired of not having a stable place to stay, so I'd like to move ASAP.

Am I going to have a wait another month to even start applying for apartments, or is there another way around this?

Thanks for the advice, sorry for the tl;dr

I guess this is for women more than men: do you spend a relatively large amount of money on hair salon products? If so, do they really make a difference? I just spent $63 on shampoo, conditioner, and a heat serum just to try it out. I'm hoping it really makes a difference since I don't really take care of my hair.

DK/DC:

Is there one thing you spend more money on than most people do?

unrelated questions...

What is a clothing item or accessory that you find ridiculously sexy? (Lingerie and swimsuits don't count.) POST PICS FOR EXTRA CREDIT.

How often do you check your email?

1. Black suits (especially with a white shirt and black tie) and schoolgirl skirts.
2. I get automatic popups when an email arrives, so in a way I'm constantly checking it while at the computer. If I'm at home but not at computer, I check up on it every two hours or so.

Inspired by a question posted earlier:

What kind of accent do you have?
Do people from other areas notice/point it out to you?
Do people from your own area point it out to you?

Did you have any specific problem learning English if it is not your first language?
(At first I could not use contractions)

I am from ostroleka poland and generally people do not notice my accent at first, but the more I talk the more I see people almost stare at me as if they are trying to figure out what does not sound quite right, eventually they ask.

Anybody know where I can find some quality Hanson sex dolls? I started my search a couple of years ago and so far I've only come across ones that look nothing like them, are poorly made, and/or aren't anatomically correct. I really don't think I'm asking too much and I figured someone from tqc would be able to advise me.

What is your favourite kind of Mexican food? What do you have in it/on it? Will you describe it to me...in explicit, guacamole-y, detail?

NGL, sometimes when I feel too tired or sick to go to Saturday classes, I think of the vegan tacquitos (black beans, salsa, guacamole, and soy cheese with lime) that I'll get myself for lunch...and that gives me the motivation to go.
