Have you ever been to the Orlando Hard Rock Cafe?
If yes, did you take one of those little tour things into the Lennon room? How about the room where all the celebrities write on the walls? Did you have fun? (I was just looking at some vacation pics and was thinking about it)

Can you help me come up with a domain name, TQC?

tqc help make my life decisions

i need to get rid of either the biology or stats class and i can't decide

the stats class is something i have to take to graduate but it's offered every semester including summer so i can potentially take it later.

the biology class i sort of need (as a biology elective, but there will be plenty of others later) but i'm not especially interested in it. i've heard the prof is pretty good and an aquaintance of mine is taking it so i'll have someone to study with.

obviously the logical choice is to drop the stats class and take it later but i want to work next semester and the biology class kind of fucks up my flexibility. i have a volunteer job that's about 10 hours a week and i can not sacrifice that so i feel like i need some big blocks in my schedule if i'm going to fit a real job in there too.

You find a young bird on your front lawn. Presumably, the previous storm has knocked it down; in fact, you came across another bird just a minute before, but that one had managed to fly back to the tree. The current one is about the same size, but only able to fly-hop short distances. It's two in the morning and you want to go to sleep soon. Take it in or leave to it's mother that you have yet to see/neighboorhood cats?

If you live on your own etc. how involved are your parents in your life?  Do they tell you what to do? 

Mine aren't really involved.  I see them once in a while..hang out..let them know how things are.. but they know I'm an adult and can handle myself and make my own decisions.  I kinda let them know this about a year after I moved out and they didn't continue meddling.  My boyfriend is older than my by 7 years and his mother is quite a bit more involved than my parents.. She literally ordered him to apologize publicly to his OLDER brother for calling him a name (they do this all the time anyway)

Should I try to get short term health insurance? As in for a few months? Would it be worth the trouble and money versus hoping for the best?


I was recently made full time but missed the insurance enrollment date at work. Even with the health care bill increasing the age of coverage to 26, I can't be put back onto my dad's insurance until January 1st 2011 (and he works for the government, d'oh). I've never had any outstanding health problems and rarely get sick but of course, anything can happen. Been without health insurance already for a few months and it's starting to bother me :(

Books!

When I'm at work I'm able to read 1 book in two shifts.  I want to read between 3-6 books a month since I have the time at my job. 

Recently I've been reading a lot of Dean Koontz (for sentimental reasons) and I think that I'd like to mix it up a bit. I bought a new book last night called "Animals" by Don LePan but it's a rather short looking book. 

TQC, what are some good books I can read while I work? To be honest I've never really been a reader until I got this job so I'm wide open to all genres of books. I don't really know what types of books I like yet, since I haven't explored that many. 
What are your favorite books?

The Secret...

Even if you haven't seen "The Secret", you must know what the law of attraction is. Have any of you have ever tried it, and if so, did it ever work for you?

I used to be an athiest and would have never believed in any of this shit, not even the power of manifesting thought into reality, but thoughts are not confined to the spaces of our heads. They are alive and even if what "the secret" talks about can't happen, who can deny the power of the mind, and how there is A LOT OF SHIT that WE HAVE NO IDEA about when it comes to the way our mind works. Science can only explain so much. Nature is NOT mute, and we ARE a part of nature, even though living inside of walls all the time would lead a lot of people to believe so.

My boss just called me and told me that 2 full time positions have opened up in another part of my company. This will not only keep me full time(since there is a BIG chance I will go part time beginning of next year if I stay where I am), but also keep me in town. Right now I travel as far north as Hilton Head Island, SC; as far south as Daytona, Fl(sometimes even further south); and as far west as eastern Alabama. I'm seriously about to SQUEE.

 How many people are in (whatever you define as) your household? How much toilet paper do you go through in a week?

I'm a chick, I live with two guys, and somehow we went through five rolls of relatively standard-strength toilet paper in the last week. This is WAY more than we used when it was just boyfriend and I (the other guy is renting our extra bedroom for the summer and just moved in last Sunday).

I recently moved into a 2 bedroom apt with my friend. The layout is as such: You walk in to a small kitchen area and then her room is on the left and mine on the right. (Yes, it's a TINY apt, but it's in NYC after all).

There's no AC in there, so we need to install a small AC unit in one of the windows ASAP as it's summer.

If we put a unit in the kitchen, will that be more efficient in getting cool air ALL throughout the apartment? Or, should we put the AC unit in one of our rooms?

So, someone mailed me baby formula--not a sample amount, but two full cans in a box that looked expensive to ship. : /  They addressed it to my maiden name, and sent it to my parents home, which is...weird, because I haven't lived with them for years. Also, I'm not and have no plans to be pregnant.

Yesterday I found out that a friend in Tennessee got a package of baby formula too. o_O


SO, my questions are:

1. Did you get any baby formula recently? 

and

2. Any theories about why random shipments of baby formula being sent to random women?

Its high time I had a morning/evening -face cleaning- routine. So,

> What type of skin do you have ? (oily, dry, etc)
> What does your face routine involve? (products, etc)
> Anyone have any miracle solutions to oily/acne skin ? (that isn't some sort of drug/medication)

(I need my oily/acne face to turn into a significantly less acne face in about a month.... )

See, there's this boy that I've been just ... connected with for years, you know? But we don't live in the same state anymore and we both agreed that it'd be best to distance ourselves from each other and move on with the thought that maybe, probably we'd be together again. My boyfriend knows about this other boy because I am like the freaking Embodiment of Honesty over here and he understands that I am respectful and that I don't talk to him beyond the occasional "Hey, how are you?" and stuff. But we got into a fight today and he told me that I was "just another girl who's using him to pass the time until she can be with the person she really loves." I'm happy with my boyfriend and would like to stay with him but when it's put like that, I mean, how can things go back to being the same?

I've seen this movie at least a hundred times. It's one of my favorite Disney movies, though it's hard to compete with movies that have nostalgia value (i.e. Beauty & the Beast, Lion King, Pocahontas). However I cannot for the life of me understand how Tiana puts up with her friend's exuberant spending and constant whining about wanting to be a princess. =/ I also don't see how her friend genuinely cares about Tiana or any of her feelings. They didn't set that up well enough, at least I think.

Also I wanted to see more human!Naveen and human!Tiana interaction. Oh well, that's what sequels are for I guess. :P

I was in a car accident (passenger) earlier today, but I felt fine at the time so I didn't think much of it, but it's been a few hours and I've got a headache, a stiff neck and I feel like I've been hit in the nose.

TQC, are these symptoms bad? Should I go to the hospital tomorrow? Will I live that long?

My boyfriend and I are having conflicting sleep schedules. He didn't wake up until 10 pm tonight, so he'll be up all morning. I have to take my grandpa to the doctor at 10 am tomorrow, so I have to be awake early. My boyfriend wants to stay up until 6 pm or so tomorrow, sleep till midnight, and stay up the rest of the night. I am aware this is odd.

We are hanging out tomorrow because we haven't seen each other all week and he goes back to work Saturday. Should I try my hardest to stay up until 6 pm with him tomorrow, that way we can both sleep at the same time, or should I go to bed tonight and be extremely bored for six hours tomorrow evening while he sleeps? If I did the latter, I would have to sleep at some point that night so we wouldn't really be "hanging out" much.

Peter Pan: Hear Me Out

At the risk of sounding like a "Yahoo Answers" Question...

I recently bought Catcher in the Rye from Barnes & Noble - I'm almost done with it, but since I'm not in love with it, I want to return it. I just bought it 5/29, and I plan to be done with it by this Sunday, so it'll be well before the 14-day deadline for returns.

However, it says: "for returns of new and unread books" - uh, they don't have this magical way of knowing that you've read it, do they? I'm doing my best to keep it unmarked and unsoiled, and I think I've been doing pretty okay. I just have no idea how strict they are: if they flip through the pages and find a rip/fold/stain/etc. or notice that the page is wrinkled because of my fingers or something.

Guess anyone that's worked there would know? I have a feeling I'm worried all for nothing, because I really can't imagine anyone giving that much of a crap, just as long as the book doesn't look too messed up.

ETA: Huh, didn't realize this was a bad idea. I've never actually returned a book there before. I haven't been to my local library in so long - I've had so much money to spend there because of gift cards, so I decide to go B&N instead. Only this time, I didn't bring enough of them with me and paid it with cash. I bought 2 other books which I plan on keeping, and had the intention of keeping Catcher as well because everyone's always raving on and on about it and I'd figured I'd like it too. You guys are right, though: the library is the more sensible choice. On one hand, getting the money back would be nice, but now, in reading all these responses, I should probably just take the loss. Lesson learned: Either I be more wary of what I'm buying, or I just use the libary :P
