What was the worst series finale you've ever seen? Will you describe why it made you so angry?

If your answer wasn't The Sopranos, have you SEEN the finale to The Sopranos? Check it out. It was even worst than LOST's finale tonight. But I'm a hater...

What was the best series finale you've ever seen?

(you can answer with a season finale if you prefer)

If you woke up tomorrow and had a perfect* face and body, how do you think your life would be different?
What advantages do the Beautiful People have that the rest of don't? Besides, y'know, the obvious stuff... like getting free drinks and the ability to wear giant fucking sunglasses indoors at night without looking like a complete tool.

* This is "perfect" according to traditional Western media standards. Say, for women: You're 5'10", 115lbs, 0.7 waist/hip ratio, perky C-cup tatas, symmetrical neotenous facial features, etc.
Men: Um... you're Wentworth Miller. And you're naked and feeding me strawberries.

DK/DC: You're probably wearing giant sunglasses and drinking a Disaronno Sour that you didn't have to pay for.

So I've been on like 7 dates with this guy. On dates 5-7, he displayed some subtly affectionate gestures to show his interest:

Date 5: casual but flirtatious touching of my arm and lower back while laughing
Date 6: walking briefly with his hand on my lower back
Date 7: briefly putting his arm around my shoulder, playing with the ends of my hair.

I haven't done anything to show that I don't want him to do these things, but I haven't necessarily been reciprocating these actions either. I just keep talking or doing whatever it is that we're doing.

-When the above happens, and you like the person, do you reciprocate affectionate gestures? If so, what do you do?
-If I don't do anything on the next date, such as look into his eyes to indicate that he can kiss me, or something else like leaning in closer when he puts his hand on my lower back, do you think he'll get the idea that I'm not really interested in that way and lose interest in the pursuit?

Using this tool, what is the biggest/weirdest/oddest discrepancy you get between the initial phrase and the final translation (assuming the setting is "max")?

Not bad for a 147 year old blind lady. = 147 posts, wrong.

Grab-bag of queries!

I am full of quandaries tonight. Something for everyone!

1. What is up with this one bird that sits around and sings all night somewhere on my block? I think it's a mockingbird, because it has so many variations in its song. Is there something wrong with it? Why won't it shut up???

2. Why does my uncle keep turning the thermostat up to 73F(/23C)? Is he a freak who should go live in a sauna, or are we freaks for keeping it at 69F(~20C) normally? Do you have relatives who do really annoying things when they visit?

3. Does anyone here speak fluent Spanish? I really really need a sentence or two translated from English to Spanish and I know very well that relying on online translators is NOT a good way to do it.

4. Do you have any recent musical "discoveries" you'd like to recommend to TQC? I'm looking for new great stuff. (Mine are in the comments.)

You're sitting in the jury room, waiting for your interview, when in walks the hottest person you have EVER seen. You're seriously about to throw yourself on them and dry hump, people around you be damned.

What would turn you off faster than a bucket of cold water?

They pull out Ann Coulter's book "Godless" and begin reading with avid interest
They lean forward slightly, causing their shirt to gap, revealing a name tattooed on their chest, crossed out, and then re-tattooed. There are currently two crossed out & one untouched name.
They start talking. Their voice starts out normal, but the longer they engage in conversation, they begin to put emphasis on their s's. "Jussssssssssssssssssssst like ssssssssssssso".
They have what appears to be jock itch that has spread to their ass, so they're constantly scratching both their crotch and the expanse of their ass
They sit with their legs splayed, inviting the world to enjoy their loins, only they smell distinctly of ballsweat, no matter the type of genitalia they have
They finish every sentence they say, be it one word or twenty, with "BE QUIET YOU IDIOT!" in an exact replication of Ren, from Ren & Stimpy
They start speaking in tongues and begin having seizure like motions as they do so. You're the only one who realizes they're simply alternating between "Paul is dead" and "I buried Paul" backwards.
They sneeze violently into their hand then surreptitiously (or not so much so) wipe it on their neighbors, a la George W. Bush in Haiti with Clinton.
Their pant/skirt rides up and you see a bush of leg hair, that has been dyed multiple outlandish colors. At second glance, you notice "I'm a pretty girl" has been shaved in, regardless of gender, a la the nike swoop in the early nineties.
They reach in their purse/manbag and take out a finger skateboard and begin playing with it. You can hear them narrate "Hawk with a kickflip to hardflip to invert varial lien!" as they do, and they begin cheering as the combo is completed.
They pull out Dominatrixing for Dummies: how to embrace your inner Nazi ideologies.

What is more painful; childbirth or a UTI? And I mean childbirth like just oxygen/saline. My mom had both her kids just oxygen mask and saline IV on the incase they needed to drug her up (she was 42) and she says UTIs are worse than childbirth, but I wonder if others think that way.

Do haughty and hottie sound differently to you when you say them? How so?  

They sound exactly the same to me, but a friend in Baltimore told me she says them differently (in text, so she couldn't pronounce them for me). 


so, over the past couple weeks my arms have accumulated, over night in different patches, sporadically, fields of bug bites.
we cannot figure this out. in the house im in, where SIX other people live, NOONE has gotten bit up like me. Ive slept in practically every room in the house, where noone else has gotten bit, yet i still succeed in getting them. weve checked all over, powdered floors, washed everything ive touched like clothes and bedsheets, everything. im frustrated because i cant come up with any answers and the clusters of bites on my arms are so not attractive. 

does anyone have any ideas?

1. My older sister and I want to take our little sister on a trip in August. We live in Los Angeles, California and my little sister has never been on a plane. Where should we go that isn't crazy expensive, is fun, and isn't more than a 5 hour plane ride? I feel like we should keep it short since it's her first one. Out of state/city suggestions are welcome.

2. What's your identity in your sibling group?
-For a long time I was the bitter middle child. As an adult, I'm not too sure who I am yet. Not bitter anymore though! :)

Which of these traits could you put up with in a SO?

Loud snorer. Once he/she nods off it's like a hibernating bear is in the room
Racist. Intolerant against one specific race. He/she wouldn't do anything extreme or violent but just doesn't like 'those people'
Frigid in bed. Kissing and cuddling is great, but must intimacy involve the genitals? Again? We did it last month!
Insatiable sexual appetite. Wants to have sex multiple times a day, but will settle for once per day
Gas. Your SO has a farting problem. At least once every hour, he/she has to let one fly and it's not pleasant. They try to disguise it or hide it but it's not always possible
Overly protective of you. Tends to get into shouting matches with people he/she perceives as 'hitting on you', and it may lead to fisticuffs
Bad breath. Halitosis fever
Reckless driver. He/she insists on driving because they don't like how you drive. He/she speeds, changes lanes suddenly and swears at other drivers, but never gets into an accident
Is in a cult. Or so you believe. He/she doesn't talk about their beliefs with you at all unless grilled, but it seems that he/she is spending more time and money than reasonable on this group
Bipolar. Emotions range from ecstatic good times to crippling depressions
Conspiracy theorist. Mistrusts every story and can cite the bullshit 'real story' from everything from banks to the moon landing to whatever. Highly opinionated
Vain. Spends more time in front of the mirror than you do and can spend upwards of an hour getting ready to go out, and that's if they're in a hurry
Super kinky. Bored with generic sex and likes to experiment with all kinds of techniques and toys. Expect nothing conventional in bed
Vanilla in bed. Likes missionary and nothing else. "Why reinvent the wheel when this is feels good already?", he/she says
Embarrassing laugh. When he/she laughs, it's high-pitched, loud and shrill, similar to a witch's cackle, except cranked up to 11. Has been asked to leave a movie theater before

So, on Friday, I went on a second date with one of the attractive guys I've ever met. I was really nervous, so I drank a little bit more than I would have liked.

In my drunken stupor, I told him I was going to take him on a picnic this weekend. I have never taken anyone on a picnic ever.

What should I make? I was thinking of roasting some chicken breasts and making sandwiches, but that seems so boring and I don't know what else to serve with it. Again, chips and soda seems so...meh. And I don't want to deal with a BBQ, since it will just be the two of us.

What are some good food to bring on a picnic that can either be served cold or at room temperature?

Assume that this person is sexy enough to turn you straight if you are gay. Both of you are completely fertile and your babies will be free of birth defects. You have an infinite supply of condoms and HBC since there is no one else who needs them, as everyone else is dead.

Do you have kids with this person, with the intention of carrying on the human race? Why or why not? If you do not have kids, the planet will be 100% free of humans forever onwards. If you do, they'll have lovely incest sex and eventually the population will creep up.

1. I've been applying to many jobs lately and have noticed that after name, address and date of birth, I am always asked if I am latino/Hispanic. Then, it asks me what race I am. This is confusing me a bit, not because of the race/ethnicity difference, but because latino/Hispanic is a question all on its own. Why do you think this is?

ETA: I know about the difference between race/ethnicity, it just seemed odd to me it was the only ethnic group asked about separately.

When you file your nails using a file with coarse-fine-smooth-shine sides, do you all sides in sequence on one nail before moving to the next, or do you do an entire hand with the coarse side and then do the entire hand with the fine side?

You and your mother have a strained relationship. You fight a lot, yell, and curse, whatever. You are shopping with your mother things are going relatively well. Your friend calls, you try to talk to her but can’t really because your mother keeps butting in to tell her about all these little things you’ve done wrong all day. You’re getting annoyed, you tell your mother to stop. She keeps digging at you. You tell her more firmly to stop, she does not, and you cannot even concentrate on your friend because you mother won’t shut up. You snap, you scream “SHUT THE FUCK UP”. Your mother hits you in the mouth with enough force to cause your lip to bleed.


Who do you feel is “in the wrong”? Is the mother justified in hitting her child for cursing at her? Or was the child justified in cursing at her mother when she had already asked several times to stop? Are both parties equally wrong? What’s your take on it?

Breaking up

Okay, I've decided to break up with my boyfriend who won't have sex with me and thinks sex is icky (if any of you were around last night/this morning for those conversations).

Now he is back from his weekend trip to Louisiana, I want to go see him and get this done. The longer I wait the more anxious I'm feeling.

How should I break up with him?

Where should I do it?

When was the last time you broke up with someone? Did they cry? Did they get angry? What happened?


He doesn't want me to come over right now, I'm talking with him on facebook chat? Should I just do it over the chat?


I got himt o agree to meet me at the movie theater. And I told him to his face..he stormed off. :S And now is sending me pissed off texts. yippee!

THC (I’m leaving that typo, TQC), I can’t remember what something is called. Can you help me?

When I was little, a million years ago, the recreation dept in my city had these square game tables - well, actually just table *tops* that had different games on each side. The games involved little wooden discs, like little hockey pucks, and sticks that are used like pool cues. If I’m remembering right, there were nets at the corners of the table, sort of like a pool table. I think the game on one side of the board was a maze that you have to shoot your little puck thing through. Anyway, I want to get one for my 5yo, but I have no idea what to Google to find one.


Have you or has anyone you've known worked for Victoria's Secret?

Can you tell me about any of their dress code policies? (Ie. Tattoos, piercings, etc.) I'm googling around and not finding much...
Was it a good work environment?
Are they going to tease me because I'm president of the Itty Bitty Titty Committee? :(

I just received a call in the middle of class and the woman left a voicemail asking if I was still interested. (Hell yes.) I assume the next step is an interview. I would like to quit the part time job I have now because my weekend 2 hour commute paired with summer college courses is really doing a number on me and I'd really like the get this job but I'm not sure if I fit the "stereotype" of a VS employee.

shoe hunters halp plz?

Can you find me a pair of shoes that will look good with this dress or this dress? Preferably flats, flat (non-thong-flipflop) sandals or sandals with not more than a 1.5" heel.

Do you think the first or the second would better suit a curvy chick with a defined waist and a large ass/hips on the lower end of "plus size" (I wear a size 14/16 in dresses) ?

Dilemma! My Maya Angelou tattoo is now all screwed up because i gained weight AND got my boobs done. I obviously had it tattooed too high and too far forward. I'm either going to get a cover-up or get it removed, but it makes me sad because I really liked it.

(The surgeon had to loosen the skin under my boobs to create a lower pocket because they were too high up to start with, and he obviously tried very hard to avoid the tattoo with the incision. Eventually I'm going to have to have another incision in the same place to get them replaced, so this limits my options as far as covering it up)

What the f*ck am I supposed to do about this? Ideas? Suggestions?

I'm meeting with a parent to possibly set up some long-term tutoring with her daughter. She said she would like me to bring my references.

Should I just give her a list of contacts with phone numbers or give her my letters of recommendation?

Do you feel guilty when you spend money?

Will you post a picture of someone who does not give you the raging thigh sweats, but you just LOVE? Like you would love to give them hugs and hang out and play board games and go shopping and WTF ever you guys know what I mean.

Is Glee worth downloading and watching? Why/Why not?

I've watched all of the major shows I keep up with (American Dad, Family Guy, and Grey's Anatomy) and I need something to occupy me during the summer. Also a friend of mine said Rachel reminds her of a character I draw from time to time. Combine that fact with the fact that I love listening to remixes/tributes to old classics and it seems interesting enough.

Edit: Another question. Would it be possible for me to pretend Rachel is a lesbian? I mean I do it all the time with other characters (most notably Casey Novak from Law & Order: SVU), but would it be fairly easy with her or will I have other eye candy?

Do you have any recurring themes or whatever in your dreams? How do you feel about this?

I keep having dreams where I'm pregnant. The one I had last night, I was like eight months pregnant and wearing this pretty flowy dress and somebody I knew told me I make a very pretty pregnant lady. I love and hate it because I can totally picture myself being a pretty pregnant lady but being pregnant right now is definitely not a good idea.

some decent rest for a change

I am married to a fellow who takes up like 75% of the bed with his person and various pillows, and also he wants about 200% more blankets on than I do. In addition, I am having long-term chronic nerve damage and pain in my neck and shoulder. And he snores. So I will wake up several times a night very sore or cramped, curled up in my little portion of the mattress, sweating under 100 lbs of blankets, and then I can't get back to sleep because of the snoring.

Last night it was pretty warm here but he hadn't yet turned on the a/c, so I opted to sleep on the couch. I felt SO GOOD when I woke up. I wasn't sore, I wasn't exhausted from repeatedly waking up--I felt like I rested.

Should I do it again tonight?

It's my flatmates birthday on Saturday, and so far facebook says there are 65 people coming to my flat. Of course I will lock my bedroom door etc, but is there anything else you think I should do to prepare for the carnage?

Is "hexing" someone considered a threat? Because it's not actually going to hurt you but the intent to harm is there so it's at least threatening right?

No one is hexing me. It's hypothetical, lol.

Tactfully using a different icon so it's less obvious that this is my third question of the night. 

Ladies of TQC who have been on BC in the past and then come off of it (oddly specific, I know): 

I was on Yaz for more than two years, and stopped taking it in April. I had a period shortly after stopping it, but it's been five weeks and I haven't had another one. Is this normal for having stopped the medicine after so long? And no, there is no way I could be pregnant. 

Edit: Thanks, it feels good to hear that directly from other people. My main worry was my mom thinking I was pregnant, so now I have information to back myself up and get her mind off of that. 


Anyone been to Madrid and/or Barcelona? I'm going on Wednesday, any tips for what we should eat/see/do?

I went into contractions today, and went to the hospital. I'm only five months along so obviously this isn't good. I have been put on bed rest till the contractions stop but I have a three year old step daughter. I am a stay at home mom and I don't know what to do. Basically I was told that if I did anything I could have the baby and so I'm not going to do shit. But will I be okay to still take care of her? Like, making her food and stuff. I don't want the baby to come early but I can't ignore the other one.

My SO can't get the days off, so it's just me.

How do you like your sex?

Rookie Cook

So I've really been wanting to learn how to cook. I love looking for new and different recipes, but since I really have no experience with cooking (except for really basic stuff), it's hard to find recipes that are easy for me.

I love the website TasteSpotting, but a lot of the recipes on there are a little too ambitious for me to try.

Can anyone recommend any websites or blogs that have fairly easy recipes that are suitable for beginner cooks?

 I need food ideas to surprise my boyfriend.

I'm going to see him on Thursday for our anniversary. I already got him a present and I plan on arriving super early and waking him up wearing something cute.

I also wanna bring up lunch for us both. What ingredients could I buy to make him something for lunch? He loves spicy foods and chicken is his favorite meat.  He doesn't' really have a favorite dish and I wanna do something different. 

I haven't done anything special for him in a while so I want this to be perfect. What else could I do besides surprising him with a present and lunch?

When I put heavy eyeliner on, it always rubs off onto my upper lids. How to I prevent this from happening, slash is there a good eyeliner (preferably not liquid) that doesn't rub off like that?
