You're going to buy an audiobook. There are two versions: unabridged by a narrator you don't particularly love (but you don't really dislike either), and abridged by a narrator you adore. Which would you choose? 

Do you like audiobooks in general? 

Have you ever bought an audiobook because you don't really feel like going out to buy the real thing?

 I'm going to a party tomorrow with some friends and they are planning on getting drunk. I've never drunk alcohol before tonight. I had half a beer and a shot of cherry vodka. I don't want to end up horribly wasted tomorrow, so tonight I'm doing internet research. Any advice you want to give me?

ETA: Also, is it supposed to taste good or is it just supposed to get you drunk? That cherry vodka tasted like cough medicine.

ETA: Also, what would you recommend me try?

My boyfriend said he heard a country song about beer, the guy sounded something like Johnny Cash (he thinks) but it's not a Johnny Cash song. Any ideas?
*eta* thelovewefound sent me a message with the answer! It's Pretty Good At Drinking Beer and it sounds nothing like JC.

This may or may not be it, but there's a new guy who sounds like the old country artists, with the super deep voice. Does anyone know who that is?

I promised photos of the cutie who hopped into my livingroom tonight. I still don’t know what it is. I *think* it’s a pocket mouse. Could be a kangaroo rat. It has very soft fur, not at all coarse. Anyone know for sure now that I have a photo?

We bought it a house.


EDIT: I wish it was more apparent in the photo how long the back legs are and how short the front ones are. He hops around like a little kangaroo. Look at his snub nose... cuuuuute!

tl;dr: i have a $6500 merit scholarship for arts so i minor in art to keep it, but i hate art and want to change. i could join an art history club to stay involved in arts. if doing that wouldn't let me keep my scholarship, would it be wise to change to something more relevant to my major/something i do not abhor even though my family is footing the (huge) bill?

How do you stop regular food cravings (that have continued for months) when "increased appetite" is a side effect of prescription medication you are on? I mean, every hour or even half hour I want/need to eat, or I'm in physical pain.

I've tried eating celery sticks/carrots/onions/bell peppers, like my doctor suggested, but the cravings have not gone away. Only calories work, and I'm back to hating my body. :(

Nanny Help, Parents not excluded

Sorry this is a bit long.

I'll be a part-time nanny come September, the kids I'll be looking after I already know as I already babysit them.I've usually have only babysat these kids in the evening and once during the day. My primary duties will to take the oldest to kindergarten in the morning and pick her up around lunch, so I'll have the youngest all day and the oldest only for the afternoon until their dad gets home.

I'm more used to planning things for kids 6-9 and when I babysit the two I'll be a nanny for they're usually getting ready for bed so I usually don't have to worry about entertaining them.

Ages Almost 2 and 5

What type of things can I do with these kids to keep them entertained?
Should I put together an arts and craft kit?
Any advise in general on how to deal and what may or may not work?

Why is my dog chewing around his tail so much? What can I do to help him?

We have him on flea preventative so that's not the issue. I've been putting some olive oil on his food because that's helped with itching in the past but it isn't helping now. The poor guy has patches of fur missing. =(

He needs to go to the vet for his annual visit anyway, but I wanted to know what this may be and what I can do for him in the meantime.

ETA: I just called the vet and his appointment isn't until Aug 27th! =(

You get home with your box of donuts and you open it and discover that there are no donuts, but a bank deposit bag filled with $5000 cash money. Clearly, this is the store's daily deposit. There is no way for them to trace who took the money.

If you live with roommates, do you initiate sexy times in the living room (late at night) or just wait until you go to bed?
I often find my roommate&her SO's clothes all over the living room in the morning and it always kind of weirds me out because even though I went to bed I can still get up and go to the bathroom or let my cat out or something. Idk I don't get why you wouldn't just go to the bedroom to take your clothes off if you're gonna end up there anyway. (Or if they're actually having sex and not just getting it going in the shared living space regularly that is just weird&unnecessary y/y?)

Calling all Borders employees, former and current! Are they a company that is open to hiring people with body modifications? I read on a forum that they were, but I didn't know how much truth there was to it. I'm currently a SAHM, but I'm looking to get a part-time job, preferably one that does not discriminate against people with body mods. I have visible tattoos on my forearm, hand, and leg, as well as nostril and tongue piercings.

So there's an opening for a biologist position at the aquarium where I currently volunteer. I bust my fucking ass at my volunteer job because I love it so god damn much, so I want this job more than anything.

I submitted my application for the job about a week ago, and since then, about four biologists who I work with have popped their heads into the hiring manager's office to say, "Ms. Octopus Lady is awesome! You should hire her!" Possibly five, maybe even six. Not really sure. I also stopped by her office the day after sending in my application to let her know that I submitted it and I was very interested in the position, so she knows who I am.

Everyone keeps telling me I should stop by the hiring manager's office myself, I guess to...show interest, but I don't know what to say, exactly. Should I say something like, "Hey, Ms. Hiring Manager! Just wondering how the process is going for the biologist position! I'm still really interested!" Or something like that?

If that sounds bad, what should I say instead?

Guuuhhhh...I'm so nervous about this job. I want it so bad! Help me, TQC!

okay, so i'm about to invest in a 15 grand violin...
there's also an 11 grand one, and that one accompanies with a 3 grand bow, and a nice case.

the bow i have right now is around 400 dollars, and my mom isn't going to buy me a new case or bow if i get the 15 grand one...
I'm going to be broke after this, since my parents forced me to pay 10% of the 15 grand....

The 15 grand one sounds much more sweeter than the 11 grand one does.

Which one should i get?

I'm currently a senior and Nursing major, and soon I'll be done with my first semester in upper division. For the last few months I've been seriously considering changing my major. I'm hesitant because it took so long to get into this program, but I've been incredibly depressed and stressed out. I enjoyed the pre-requisites, but upper division is an entirely different story and I'm realizing that a career as a nurse may not be a good fit for me. The worst part about leaving would probably be telling my friends and teachers.

I've been thinking about switching to Art Education or Elementary Education (I love kids-I was going to work in pediatrics). What I want the most is to enjoy going to work everyday, and I don't look forward to going to lab or clinicals at all. I have an appointment in a few hours with the Education College at my university; I'm really excited!

What do you think I should do??? If you have switched majors, why did you and to what? Are you happy that you switched or do you regret it?

I would like to drink a little this weekend with my friends, but I've had bad experiences with alcohol in the past. Even just one drink keeps me in the bathroom for hours the next day with stomach cramps. I have no idea why, but my boyfriend thinks I might be drinking drinks with too much sugar. Does that seem likely?

Anyway, if that is the case, will you recommend me some tasty drinks that aren't sugar based and have zero to little sugar in them? It can be a mixed one you have to make yourself, or bottled. Just no beer!

 Ok, I have an old copy of The Sims 2 for PC. I haven't been able to play it because the video card on my comp is shot. Last year, I installed it on my grandma's computer. I remember having trouble copying some files, but eventually I was able to install it. (Problem is I don't remember HOW.)
Well, right now I'm trying to install it on my fiance's PC and it's popping up and saying it's having trouble copying a file. It's stalling at 9%. It sits there for like 15 minutes and then tells me it's having troubles. The pop up window gives a choice of clicking retry to try and copy them again or to cancel the installation. 
I've already tried both.

I would give up, but I know I was able to do it last year . . .somehow.

Does anyone have any ideas that could get this installation process rolling???

Any help would be mucho appreciated.

p.s. buying a new game is just not an option right now.

I had a particularly obscure dream last night and after telling my mother about it she told me I should turn it into to a sci-fi novel. Now, I do not read sci-fi or fantasy (which is another genre it would fit), so I'm not even sure where to start. My dream was very detailed and made me go, "Seriously wtf...that's pretty cool", but it had no ending so I'd have to make that up.

Today, I said I was sorry about the fight, and tried to explain the situation, and all he had to say was, "That's good to know, and I accept your apology."

Will you tell me some phrases your parents like to use a lot? Or stories they like to tell a lot?

My mum likes to talk about how tortoises have to hibernate, and that she knows that from the tortoise they had on Blue Peter when she was little. I have no idea how it manages to be relevant so often. She also likes to say "Constant vigilance!"

What is the last restaurant you ate at?
Agents are Go!

Do you live with someone else? Yup
What is the first thing you do when you have the place to yourself for any period of time? No pants. Then singing

You have a superpower! But you can only use it after you consume something. What is that thing you consume that gives you your power? What you consume may or may not have anything to do with the superpower, you choose! Sushi would give me the power of flight and super charisma and the ability to spontaneously start laser tag matches out of thin air.

Have you ever posted a missed connections ad or had one written about you? What became of it?

Also, why do people reply to MC ads that are clearly not for them? This happened before with a friend of mine. He wasn't even on the bus at the time she mentioned but kept insisting that she send pics. lol

OK I'M REALLY SORRY I CAN'T THINK OF ANYONE ELSE TO ASK THIS my boyfriend isn't helping at all

i made this video because i was going to put it on youtube or something and ask, i also didn't want to forget the song but can someone watch/listen to this piece of crap i made and tell me what song is in my head? i thought it was freya (on guitar hero 2) but it definitely isn't. IF IT'S NOT GUITAR HERO, IT'S A SONG SOMEWHERE BY SOMEONE and i must find it
i hope this video works
