My 21st Birthday is in 2 days (well I guess technically it's tomorrow since it's after midnight) I've heard that I can buy alcohol in an ABC store the day before my birthday. Does anyone know if this is true? I live in Virginia  It worked. I bought liquor at 2 different ABC stores in Virginia and my 21st birthday isn't until tomorrow! I asked the second lady and she said they're allowed to sell it the day before, but it's up to each store to decide if they actually do.

Regardless of when I can buy it, what should my first legal purchase be? I'm thinking a bottle of Stoli vodka...

Why is it so difficult for people to accept that other people who were EXACTLY as intelligent as us but lived 4000 years ago could do things architecturally and mechanically that we can do too?

Why is it that just because we don't know exactly how they went about it, IT MUST HAVE BEEN ALIENS???

Is Ancient Aliens the stupidest show ever? These morons are seriously starting to piss me off... I can't change the channel cuz my sister's boyfriend is here and mocking this show is funnier than watching pretty much anything else that's on right now.

Text Break Up

Have you ever broken up with someone via a text message or been broken up with by someone via a text message?

What are your feelings on text message breakups?

Do you think that after living with someone two years that breaking up via a text message is acceptable?

What is a good habit you're trying to pick up?
I'm using FlyLady to get into some routines with cleaning the house.

What is one habit that you're trying to drop?
I curse a whole lot, and I'm trying to cut it down. Or at least do it in another language.

DK/DC: Would you rather be too hot, or too cold?
Too cold, I can always add more layers. I can only take so much off when I'm dying from the heat.

Thanks to my longish fingernails that need filing and my restless sleeping habits, I now have several obvious mini-cuts at the base of my neck. I work in a professional setting, and since it's 95+ degrees everyday, wearing my hair down to cover them is not an option.

Should I try to cover them with a band-aid, or do you think that will that draw too much attention to the area and I should just let it go?

My grandma makes these cookies and they are like a square, with jelly in the center, and two of the sides folded over the jelly. What are these called? I have looked up jelly filled cookies, folded jam cookies, folded jelly cookies. My google-fu just sucks.

Also, if you freeze mayo and thaw it, is it safe to eat? Or should I chuck it? It's the squeezey kind if that makes a difference.

Has anyone else had a foot go almost numb--but not like it's fallen asleep or anything?

I don't know how to explain it, but I know it's not asleep or has been asleep. My right foot feels different than my left, and it came on all of a sudden. It's almost like it's ~warmer~ than the other foot, and it tingles a little.

I'm pretty sure this happened to my other foot a few months ago, and it went away on its own. But I worry a lot so..

why is my roommate getting all huffy for me for letting my friend sleep and keep her things in the living room when NO ONE USES IT?

i seriously cannot stress that enough. WE DON'T USE IT. EVER. there isn't even a TV in there. she's gone 80% of the time and when she's here, she's in her room. i've never once seen her in there. in fact, i've never seen her with friends over except the guys she's dated since we've lived together. she's also getting on my ass to clean up the kitchen and dining room when it's our other roommate's mess. why is it meeee?

also, my friend is just visiting. she's leaving tomorrow afternoon.

(I am pretty jazzed to have a toaster oven)

Also, what was the least satisfying phone call you made?

I just spent 33 minutes on hold waiting to talk to financial aid, as it's not been posted yet and classes start in 6 days. When I finally talked to someone she looked me up and said it'd be posted Friday.

Do you feel like 3 days' notice is a little short? How am I supposed to know if I need to take out a private loan? (which takes 4-6 weeks for my school)

I'm having a total blank on a word. What's it called when someone takes a technique that someone else uses and adapts it to their own differing purpose? E.G. 'Colbert presents left-wing ideals through ???? O'Reilly's rhetorical techniques'? It's something along the likes of adapting/twisting/misrepresenting but not quite.

Edit: Got the word, it was appropriation.

Your old favorite tv shows/movies that haven't aged well?

MTV's Undressed is a big one. I respect the show for being ahead of it's time - still is in many ways - but man. I searched for some clips on youtube once and couldn't believe how terrible the acting was. And nowhere as ~risque~ as I remember. I was binging on this shit every night 11pm?

Also, I can't find much enjoyment out of the old All That episodes except for the nostalgia factor, which is strong. Makes me sad. :'(

This morning (around 9am GMT) I put home made veggie sausage mix in the fridge to defrost (leftovers from a batch we made last month). I went to check on it and it's still quite....icy. So I've taken out it and placed it on the counter to speed up the process. We do not own a microwave so I can't defrost the food that way.

Is there any hope it will be safe to eat by 6pm when my boyfriend arrives home? (It's currently 3.50pm GMT). I have tried Googling but most answers relate to meat based defrosting issues :(

interview fashion with an unfortunate twist.

I know, I know, another job question.

I've been searching unsuccessfully for a job forever and I finally landed an interview tomorrow. However, I haven't interviewed in a long time and since then I've put on a bit of unsightly weight and none of my old interview clothes fit anymore. Can you give me tips on what to wear that might flatter a figure with large breasts/stomach/thighs? I still have relatively skinny arms and lower legs, but everything else got chunky during my unemployment. I'm worried that I'll do poorly during the interview if I'm stressing about how flabby I look.

ETA: I am going to have to go out and buy this new outfit tonight, so feel free to be specific.

DK/DC, talk about anything involving employment or fashion, I guess. I got nothing, I'm too stressed, sorry. You could also tell me about how awesome or how bad the interview will go if you want.

TQC, what would you do in the following situation?

You've been with Job A for 2 years, it's frustrating but tolerable with good people. You're working 19 hours a week (permanent part-time) with no option to increase. It took 3 years of job hunting before getting Job A.
Job B comes along, it's less pay (by under a dollar) 38 hours a week but it's only a 6 month contract. You have no idea about the business and there is no training, they just chuck you straight in. There is also no way of telling how soon after the contract you can find a new job.

Would you accept Job B?

What's a good small-breed dog to adopt if you live in a small/medium-ish size 2-story apartment/condo? This person has no other pets and it's her, her wife and their 6-month-old baby so it should probably be okay around kids.

Edit: My friend works from home, her wife is a stay-at-home mom so they are essentially home 24-7. They also have day help with the baby. So they're pretty much available to the dog 24-7 (this is why they are considering adopting a dog). They live across the street from a playground, which has an adjacent dog park, so if the dog needs doggie compansionship s/he would have easy access to other dogs. Umm.. IDK what else. The last dog they had was a medium/large dog -- a female black lab -- but she passed away 2 months ago so most of their experience is with labs.

Also be nice because she's looking over my shoulder

ETA: okay so far corgi is the top suggestion, thoughts?

And thank you crazy dog people of TQC!


I'm going to Queensland in July - Gold coast and sunshine coast, for 2 weeks, with my parents, my boyfriend, my brother and his girlfriend. We all have different interests, and different physical abilities, and we've only got one car between the 6 of us.

Other than the theme parks (got that covered!) and beach stuff (that's sort of a given) what would you recommend to do in Queensland during that time?
Know of any out of the way awesome things? Any cool events going on? Throw whatever you want at me!
We are on a budget.

If you don't know, here's another question. We'll be home in the evenings/night time. What are some small things I can pack to do, either alone or with others in the group? Or ideas of things to do? (eg: go for a night walk, play charades, create a board game...)


My roommate used the last of my paper towels (without replacing them AGAIN... FOR THE LAST MOTHERFUCKING TIME, as we're moving out in a month and a half and I was hoping it wouldn't come to this but I will be hiding them in my linen closet for the rest of that time) and I'm off to the store to stock up on Move-Out Cleaning supplies. What do I need to do a *thorough clean*? What am I likely to run out of, or forget completely? (Though this part obv isn't true) assume I don't have any cleaning supplies at all in my apt.

When you were growing up, did you have guest quarters in your house? Or when your family had people over (to spend the night) how did sleeping arrangements work?

This past March, I got hired as a math and science tutor. I was really excited because not only do I get to tutor biology, but I was going to get paid $27/hr to do it. If I worked 15-20 hours a week (which I was told they could "totally do" for me), I could move out of my parents house.

Thanks, TQC.

tl;dr: I got hired at a job three months ago and they still haven't trained me or given me any work. Is it out of line if I sent them an e-mail telling them that I am getting pissed off and if they don't give me some work soon, I will quit?

Any mechanics in here?

So I think I may have driven my vehicle with an oil issue. Let's say I drove it with no oil, or the oil pump gave, and my vehicle stopped running. Once I got it home, I can turn it on an it runs. Does that mean the engine is ok? I can afford a new oil pump, but not a new engine.

TQC vets, I need you.

I have an appointment for Harley tomorrow afternoon, but I'm curious now.

The insides of her ears have been chapped and dry for a few months now, and when neosporin and adding oil to her food didn't work, and they seemed to not be bothering her, I ignored it as a dog thing and moved on. Now she's got a couple little spots of blood along the edges of her ears where they are most chapped, and she's started itching them a bunch.

When I spoke to the vet tech, she said that because she's so young (under two), it would be really weird for her to have ear mites.

Barring ear mites, what could this be?

I guess I'm not so up on my doggy dermatology.

Decades in movies

Alright, strange story. I went to buy hair bleach. While waiting at the register I saw two guys hanging outside in the parking lot together. One was dressed in an indie rock southern shirt, tight jeans, sunglasses and a bad bleached hair cut. The other was dressed in white shorts, a striped thin cotton shirt unbuttoned to show a a white t-shirt undernearth. As well he had a Yankees hat forward and to the side and a gold chain. When I left the first one spoke to me with a feminine lisp. I turned around and there was also a guy in pants, shirt, curly hair, and a fidora. There was a fourth guy, but I couldn't make him out.

SO we have
The cool, hip gay indie guy who the girls all giggle and gossip with from the first decade of 2000.
The suburban gangsta wannabe, but not really of 1990.
The smart, goofy jewish kid(but playing a kid implied to be christian) everybody likes from the 1980s.

Who was the fourth?

Let's say you're going to be murdered.

Would you rather be murdered by someone you know or by a total stranger? On one hand, you are ultimately betrayed by someone you trust and possibly love, and on the other hand, you are being murdered and you don't know why.

OR SURPRISE OPTION C: You are murdered by a total stranger but before it happens they explain exactly why.

ETA: Why did you choose what you chose?

DK/DC: I just got a notice in the mail that a Level 3 sex offender has moved in down the street. He was convicted of rape in 1976 and sexual assault in 1986 and served 10 years in prison. This doesn't bother me too much. I'm not gonna invite him over for tea while i'm home alone or anything but i'm not bothered by a guy seemingly trying to get on with his life.
How would you feel if you were in my shoes?
If it makes a difference, he's not my next door neighbor or anything but he lives just right down the street.

ETA: These questions have nothing to do with each other. I wrote the murder question and was about to post when my mom brought in the mail and showed me the notice. Lol I posted this and realized these questions are weird together

For those of you that have dogs, should I buy another dog?

When I adopted my first dog, they told me that he was feral and that he wasn't captured until 10 weeks of age (thus having no human contact until that time) and said that it would take a while for him to not be scared and comfortable around me. It's been a year, and while there is progress there is still a few hurdles for him to overcome. However, I have noticed that when he is around other dogs, he is much happier and calmer and not as nervous. I was thinking about adopting a younger, female dog so he could have a friend and hopefully, finally just be completely calm and comfortable. I have the time and energy for another dog and the space. Should I adopt her?

Is this outfit appropriate for a business setting? I need to do a presentation tomorrow and need to wear formal business attire. (outfit breakdown, since webcam isn't great: dress shirt that will probably be substituted for a black one, black high-waisted knee-length pencil skirt, 4" patent leather pumps, bustle jacket). I'm definitely concerned about the jacket, because it's not a traditional blazer. I tried to take detailed pictures, but here is the actual jacket.

I gained weight, so my dress pants don't fit comfortably (but I can wear them). I haven't worked in an environment that was business casual for a long time, so my small business casual wardrobe is rather limited from my weight gain, and I would prefer not to have to run out and do last minute shopping for a five-minute presentation.

Also, is red lipstick okay in a formal office setting? I am a red lipstick kind of gal.
Thank youuuuuuuuu~

ETA: I'm sewing up the slit on the skirt and this is for a class. I'm not actually going to a business, but the teacher wants us to "dress up" to have the full experience.

ETA2: Thanks so much for the *overwhelming* feedback. I've sewn up the slit and I'm going to 86 the jacket since it's going to be really hot.

ETA3: I ended up wearing the skirt and a different top with a cami underneath it. Preso went really well.

Why does your life suck?

I drove 2 hours under the hot So California sun to a job interview...and found that though you don't have to be in college for the job, you have to be in college when you are hired. I graduated just 4 days ago and applied for the job 2 months before, and they took too long to get to me.

Sorry to be a total downer and make you imagine yourself in a horrifying situation, but...my sister just sent me some self-defense tips from Snopes. One of the tips is talking about what to do should someone get in your car with a gun and tell you to drive:

"Another plan would be to drive him to a police station rather than to where he orders you to go, reminding him that if he shoots you, the car will veer out of control and hit something, which will injure or kill him too."

Does this sound like a good idea to you? I usually trust Snopes, but that sounds kind of risky. I would just be hesitant to piss the guy off...what would you do in that situation? Would you have the balls to "remind him" that shooting you will kill him too?
