I started using Neutrogena's new Pink Grapefruit Facial cleanser. It helps clear up the blackheads on my nose and chin plus makes my forehead oil free. BUT it's drying out my cheeks and they're starting to peel. I've been putting aloe vera on them so the skin doesn't feel so tight, but it does nothing to stop the peeling. Any one have some face moisturizer suggestions for combination skin?

I'm freaking out right now. I just had to call an ambulance for my fiance.
He didn't have anything on him (ID, SIN, Health Card). Do I need to find this and bring it for him? I don't know where any of this stuff is. He doesn't use a wallet and he puts it wherever, but he always knows where it is.

I'm waiting for my mom to get here to watch our son but I'm having a panic attack and I don't know if I need to bring anything?!

should i dye my hair a strange color? i'm almost 22 and have a job that doesn't care what my hair looks like, and i feel like if i want to dye my hair a strange color, i should do it before i get too old. : /

what color should i dye it? i was leaning towards bright red or maybe pink or purple, but i really have to dye it something because my roots are showing. i will probably be using manic panic, so these are the colors available to me: http://www.manicpanic.com/best_of_best.html

Do you have an annoying co-worker? What do they do that's annoying?

Mine is a lady at my job that whenever she passes my desk she tells me what she's doing. "I'm going to go get lunch" "I'm going to the bathroom" "I'm going to go move my car" "I'm going to go use my phone" - Sometimes I just want to yell, "I don't give a damn, just let me work!" :K

To all sexually active TQC-ers in possession of a uterus:

Do you have an IUD?
If you have one, what kind? (Paragard, Mirena, etc.)
If you have an IUD, did you have kids before it was inserted?
If you haven't had kids, did your doctor try to talk you down from getting one?

I'm thinking of getting a Paragard IUD for several reasons. 1) I'm uninsured, don't make much money, and don't plan to have children for a long time, meaning it's much cheaper in the long run. 2) I cannot deal with hormonal birth control and the side-effects. 3) Using only condoms is making me antsy.

I'm just worried I'll get talked down from getting one (I am well aware of the downsides) because I've never had children and I'm only 22.

What's the best advice you've been given? If it needs explanation, what area of your life does it pertain to?

Should I eat my roommate's pizza for breakfast? He didn't come home last night, so I should assume that some strange girl is cooking for him this morning, rite?

I'm dating a new guy but live with my ex and a guy that occasionally stepped in with us. Awkward, y/n? For who? Because it really isn't for me.

You're reaching into the cupboard for a mug for your daily cuppa joe. All of a sudden, SURPRISE! The Genie of the Coffee Mug materializes. He explains that as he is only a Coffee Mug genie, his wish fulfillment isn't quite as far-reaching as those fancy-pants Lamp genies, and he has this to offer you:

He will send you anywhere, to any time period (past, present or future), for one week.

Where and when will you go? Why?

At the end of the week, you are given the choice: Stay there in that place and time period forever, or return to your regularly scheduled present-day life. If you stay, all your family and friends will know is that you up and disappeared, never to be seen again.

Do you stay?

Is the rest of your day weird when you have a bad dream?

Is there any kind of common thing that happens in your dreams?


It wasn't last night, but the night before, I was sleeping, or half awake because I was in my room but all of these things were happening. What the hell kind of dream is that? Does that happen to anyone else?

Do you consider yourself a good listener? When someone is talking or telling you how they feel do you actively listen or do you try to put in your two cents regardless?

Me: I talk too much and have found that when my SO is telling my how they feel I often become very defensive and talk over them to try and defend my side. It is a reoccurring problem and I have not really improved much in this area.

Cassette Tape Emergency

 Ok so does anyone still know anything about cassette tapes?  I have a tape that is really important to me that i found from like six years ago.  But before i could listen to it i spilled beer on it without knowing.  When i went to get it it was stuck stiff and i tried to wind it but it was stripping the .film tape (I'm not sure if thats what its called).  I really want to listen to it all and don't want to ruin any of it.  So my question is does anyone have any suggestions on how to fix it?  I was wondering if i held it over a humidifier if that would ruin it even more?

How long do you take to get ready in the morning normally?   What's the minimum amount of time you would need to get ready?

Girls, would you leave the house sans makeup?


I normally get up at 6:15.  I woke up at 6:55 this morning.  (EDIT: 15 minutes before I normally leave) I washed up, got dressed and left.  I wasn't late.

I am sans makeup at work and sans doing my hair (it's just in a fuzzy ponytail and i put on a headband)  I'm ok with it cuz I think I actually look pretty decent without makeup.   I woulda otherwise been late if I had a problem with it and had to put on makeup.  My hair is fuzzy but whatever

Volunteer work.

So, I just graduated with a Sociology degree. I'm planning on going to grad school but am still doing a lot of soul searching about what I want to go for exactly. Due to that, I won't be back at school in the fall but ideally want to be by spring or the following fall at latest. Now this leaves me to wonder wtf to do for the next few months. I have a part time job already that I don't want to give up due to decent pay/networking opportunities. Ideally I'd like a second job, but I was also thinking of doing some volunteer work over the summer if that doesn't pan out right away.

TQC, what kinds of volunteer work have you done and what would you reccommend? I'm in the NY metro area/Long Island if that helps at all. I'm pretty open minded, but I don't think I could handle something with intense physical labor (joint problems).

I have this weird habit of making a little "throat-clearing" noise before I answer the phone at work. I don't think I do this at home or anywhere else. Is this just me?

What are your weird tics?

Did/does anyone here stutter? How did you overcome it (if you did)? I had a very bad stutter in Elementary school and speech therapy worked wonderfully. I distinctly remember that weird feeling of words literally getting stuck in my throat. I think my phone tic may be a remnant from my stuttering days.

Or should the parents deal with it?

Every couple months or so I nair my step-daughters unibrow. Her mother is from Chile, and her dark hair really stands out with the unibrow. One kid started pointing and making fun of her once, so I just like to take care of it so that doesn't happen. Am I horrible?

I'm interviewing for a position as a parking valet today. What should I wear?

I'm pretty sure a suit is overkill, and it seems quite informal as they just said to come on down anytime I'm free to interview.

Here's an idea of what I'm working with: black dress pants, a simple black skirt (it's kinda too big though), button downs, some polos, some light sweaters, and a nice pair of jeans.

Have you ever cheated on someone? Did that cheating experience make you more paranoid that you will be/are being cheated on with future partners?

I cheated on someone a couple of years ago, and now I get paranoid that the same thing will happen to me. I read into things thinking, 'I kinda acted like that when I was cheating and wanted out! OMG!!!' It's really friggin' annoying. How do I chill the fluff out and stop stressing myself out???

ETA: I guess I should add that I ended the relationship (it had lasted 2 1/2 years) after I cheated to be with the guy I cheated with. It wasn't just sleeping with someone else, I actually developed an entire relationship with someone else. Not sure if that makes it worse...

So one of my Facebook friends is all into supporting something called 'Draw Mohammed Day', taking place on May 20th.

The description from the Facebook group is this:

Hopefully this page will spark seroius debates in international forums. This page will continue to exist and the date will remain the same. PS: We are not trying to slander the average muslim , its not a muslim/islam hatepage. We simply want to show the extremists that threaten to harm people because of their Mohammed depictions, that we're not afraid of them. That they can't take away our right to freedom of speech by trying to scare us to silence.

What do you think about this issue? Should religious figures be fair game for interpretation (in this case in the form of a drawing) or should all individuals respect the wishes of a particular religion?

TQC, I've been on a cleaning purge of my room.

Do I keep a school scrap book from elementary (which was a crappy period of my life) and early high school (which was...not great but not horrific either)? I'm keeping stuff from graduation.

Reason why I ask is I do want to let go of all these memories, but that's just it, I'm worried down the line I'm going to turn around and look back at my life only to have huge gaps.

Guys, I have a problem.

My mom picked me up from school today to buy some material for my graduation dress, but we both forgot the list the designer gave me of said material. She was aware of that and didn't get mad at first.
But when I suggested that we could go back home to get the list and the rest of the material to take it to the designer as soon as we finished shopping, she got so angry that she said she wasn't going to help me with my dress anymore because I made her waste her time (she left her job early to pick me up on time) and I'd have to figure it out on my own. I don't have a car, and both my dad and sister are super busy right now and I'm too embarrased to ask them for help. 

What can I do?

TQC, if you live with your parents (and you're both adults), how do you split up the household work? My dad is awful about not picking up/sorting through his mail, and I don't want to sort it and put something in the trash that doesn't belong. But it's kind of overwhelming and I just want to see the kitchen table again. And it's just my dad and me, so "getting Mom to do it/talk to him" isn't an option. Note: he also works all the time, so it's easy for things to just kind of pile up, and I feel really weird about being a nag about it (that whole housewife/daughter boundary line).

My brother totaled his truck when he was driving back from college a couple of months ago. He's now back home from school for the summer and takes my car everywhere (most times without asking me). His girlfriend is staying with us for the time being, and also has a car, but for some reason they can never take hers (which would be the logical thing to do, since when they take my car, I'm stranded because my parents both work and I have no access to another car).

Do I have a right to be a little annoyed? When it comes down to it, I really don't mind sharing, just so long as I don't have anywhere to go/he lets me know he's taking my car and I'll be stranded.

ETA: He must have caught wind of this post, because he just took it again without asking me. His girlfriend's car is in the driveway. Definitely hiding my keys when he gets home.

Have you ever had an experience with an animal when it showed you a remarkable expression of love? If so, can you share it? I don't know how to describe it, I mean more than just random affection, more like something that surprised or shocked you?

This isn't super-remarkable, but one time when I was horseback riding, there was a piece on the bridle/bit that was bent and whenever I put any pressure on the reins the bent piece would jab the horse, Teak, in the mouth. She kept on acting resistant and stubborn. She's usually that way anyway, so it wasn't really unusual and we (my teacher and I) didn't know there was anything wrong. When Teak was acting stubborn, my teacher told me to be more strict. Well, it ended up with the horse rearing and me falling off. My teacher said it looked like Teak was going to land on me, but that she twisted her body really drastically in order to not. She also said that was the first time she'd ever reared like that when someone was on her. Once I got up and was recovering from the shock, Teak came over and kinda bowed her head and kept her nose at my knee for a few minutes. For an unaffectionate horse, that was pretty affectionate of her. <3

So it turns out Lady Gaga is coming to Utah on her tour after all.  
Tickets go on sale on Friday, but the show isn't until  March 19, 2011!
How lame is that??

Now I'm facing a dilemma, because Paul McCartney is visiting Utah for the first time this July and his tickets go on sale this Monday.  
They are both likely to sell out before I can afford to buy tickets to both of these concerts. So I need to pick one for now and hope the other won't sell out that fast...which is unlikely.

Me: A couple of summers ago my mom was being really freakish. Probably mainly to do with the fact my dad was in Alaska for a commercial fishing job. He goes every summer but she was especially upset this summer and was angry at me 95% of the time. One day she threatened to call the police and have them remove me from the house because I wasn't cleaning my room, but she didn't. She never apologized for the threat itself, but she later apologized for her "behavior" over the summer.

Well, wtf, why does a guy I've never seen before think it's ok to come touch me in such a way.

What makes people at a church think it's ok to touch people they don't know?
doing flips and shit.

running.

for those of you who run, do you prefer to run on a treadmill or outside/on a track?

i used to run on an indoor track and i could never run on a treadmill. now, i can pretty much only run on a treadmill. i don't know if i have issues with pacing or what. i tried to go for a run tonight outside and i just CAN'T do it.

i'm still going to run at the gym because i like the treadmill, but i want to be able to run outside, too. how can i improve my endurance outside?

Right now it's 9:21pm and 73 degrees fahrenheit! I reside in Minnesota. I can't get enough of this amazing weather!!

How's the weather for you, TQC? What part of the world are you in?

TQC, I'm bored.
Now what? 

Do you have any amusing macros? Entertain me bitches!

(And for those who are curious my fiance is okay. The paramedics said it was a mixture of a fever, a fainting spell and most likely a panic attack. His ID wasn't an issue either. I know this should go in TQC updates but I'm too exhausted from staying up all night in the ER to go back through the posts to find it.)

Will you add up the total cost of everything you wore today (including handbag/wallet if you had one with you) and tell us how much it all cost?

What's the most expensive item? What's the cheapest? What, in your opinion, is the best value item?

(Inspired by this question where people were talking about expensive handbags being anything over $20. I wish I could find a good handbag for less than $20!)

For me: the most expensive item was my bag, which was $260. The cheapest item was my underpants, which were only $3! The best value item was a black velvet blazer I got from K-Mart (!) for only $39. The total cost of my outfit (including jewellery, stockings, underwear, shoes, etc.) was $796.

What kind of body language clues would you have to be given by your date to make you think it's okay to make a move (holding hands, casual but affectionate touching, and then the first kiss)?

Is your face skinnier/fatter than the rest of your body in terms of proportion?

The first part of my body I lose/gain weight in is my face, I totally go from looking gaunt to looking like Miley Cyrus.

Thinking Things

Asked my boyfriend if he wanted to do something special tomorrow night. He said yes that'd be nice. I asked what sort of thing. He said 'a thinking thing'
I'm guessing that means something vaguely intellectual.
What should we do?
Bearing in mind it'll be a Thursday night in a quiet city.

Have you ever gotten a song stuck in your head?  For a really long time?  Did it make you want to shoot yourself?

Of course, it really depends on the song.  Usually if it's stuck, it's because I already listen to it a billion times a day.  But sometimes my husband will play something that I don't like all that much, and if it gets stuck, I hate him for it.

Suggestions?

I have a $70 giftcard for Best Buy and don't know what to get with it.
1) I have a Wii and already have Mario Kart and New Super Mario but am open to new games.
2) I have an Ipod Touch and all accessories I could need for it. There is a store in my town so it doesn't have to be purchased online.
3) I don't really buy movies or music

Any suggestions on what to buy?


ETA - it's actually in gift certificates from their reward points, and it expires in a few weeks. So I need to use it now.
