Okay, so. Little bit of backstory. I just moved to Florida and my nieces, age 5 and 3, live in Maryland. They are in Florida with their grandparents on the other side of the family and tomorrow me and my parents are meeting them for breakfast.

What should I get for breakfast and should I bring the girls each a present or a joint present or no present?

Have you ever gotten in to an argument on the Internet that left you legitimately ANGRY?

So like a month ago, I had a Bartholin's gland cyst turn into an abscess and I had to go to the ER to get it cut & drained. It was the most excruciating pain of my life. Today I noticed a tiny bump in the same area; I think it's coming back.

Has anyone had to deal with these before? Will you please tell me there's a way  to get them to go away on their own when they're this early on? I am terrified of going through that again and I have a camping trip to look forward to this weekend. :( 

What's the last thing to make you upset?

Guys, I'm taking my driver's test on Saturday and I'm TERRIFIED! My parallel parking is still extremely hit or miss, and I'm counting on myself to do something ridiculously stupid like not notice a stop sign.

Will you tell me about your driving test to make me feel better?

Did you pass the first time? How old were you? How long had you been driving?

Any parallel parking advice?

Like, let's say your grandmother died on a Tuesday at 3:15pm. Do you have the right to say on Wednesday at 10:56am, "My grandmother died today"? I mean, it's still within the 24 hour mark but does midnight automatically change the language?

I posted about a stray kitten I found the other day and asked what I should do about it. I've called basically every shelter within a 3 hour drive and they are all full (thus she will be euthanized if I don't find anything). This kitten is super cute, affectionate, and playful, so I'm sure she would have no trouble getting adopted, but I'm moving in a few days. I've posted on Craigslist and in other communities, but have yet to find anything promising.

If you know anyone in Iowa (near Cedar Rapids, Iowa City or Waterloo), St. Louis, Nashville or anywhere along the way who may want a kitten, would you please let them know she needs a home? I can take her as far as Nashville, but I'm then heading back to Oregon and the trip is really too long/difficult to have this kitten with me. This is seriously one of the nicest kittens I've ever seen and I do not want her euthanized!

I'm looking for some opinions on this.

To cut a long story short:
I am moving into a house with 5 others in September. We organised it in about February. One girl used to socialise with us all the time, but as soon as the contract was signed stopped coming out with us, and since uni finished for the summer has made no effort to contact anyone.

This comes across like she was just being friendly to get somewhere to live, y/n?

1)Meteor Shower is coming up! But I live in Boston, where there's much light pollution. Anyone want to bring me out to rurality and watch it? I'll bring brooowwnieees.

2) Do you friend people at work on Facebook? Do you keep them on a separate list? What do you not let them see?

3) Everytime I listen to Bohemian Rhapsody, I always sing "Nothing Really Mattress". I think it's hilarious. What wrong song lyrics do you think are better than the real lyrics?

4) I have a 1st Gen iPod Touch (jailbroken). I recently synced my music, and all the album art is wrong (Like Kelly Clarkson's Breakaway has the album art for Outkast's Speakerboxxx/The Love Below, and Gnarl's Barkley's St. Elsewhere has the album art for Within Temptation's The Silent Force). What would be the most mismatched/hilarious Artist/Album art pairing form your music library? In my case, it's that Evanescence's Fallen has the album art for Tenacious D's The Pick of Destiny. Nothing like listening to goth emo rock while staring at a barely covered up Jack Black

I'm trying to look up textbooks so I can snag the ISBN's and order them off Chegg instead. For my Chem class, they list two books, but they both have the same name, author, and edition. There is a slight difference because one says loose-leaf text and the other just says text, but idk if I'll need both (loose leaf for notes or something) or if I just get to pick one.

This is probably a really simple/stupid question, but should I just pick one or get both? I'd rather not email my prof for it because he takes a million years to get back to anyone!

Alternatively, if you're in school, when do you go back? What year will you be in? If not, what are you looking forward to within the next month?

I need some LJ friends who actually update their journals. Right now, the only ones I have either A) never update or B) update multiple times per day to do nothing other than talk about how badly their lives suck. Everyone's either boring or depressing.

So, let's be hypothetical, TQC.

Let's say an ex of yours really liked a particular band, and so did you. Would you continue to listen to that band after the breakup? Or would it remind you too much of the person? How long would it take you to resume listening to the music without thinking of that person?


Because for me, an ex of mine loved The Mars Volta and really got me into them. We broke up over a year ago and just NOW have I been able to listen to TMV's music without thinking of him and getting frustrated. Now one guy I'm with likes a particular band that I am IN LOVE WITH. If we split up or whatnot, I don't want to lose one of my favorite bands for a year!

Or am I just an outright emotional sap? lol

Ok tqc, I need assistance.

I need to get a private student loan to suppliment the funding I get from the school. My problem is my credit. I have a cosigner with perfect credit but I've gotten denied twice already. I'm afraid that I won't have any luck anywhere and I'm going to struggle through paying for school and bills and everything. Is there anywhere else to look for student loans that won't be so credit-heavy? I have 2 jobs but I have a lot of debt and its killing my credit. Are there any other options for student loans that I haven't found? I thought having a cosigner would get me approved but it isn't and now I'm scrambling.

acting agency: scam?

My friend applied to some agency to be an extra in commercials or small acting roles. She says they got back to her and they want to represent her or whatever. But, she said that they said they are gonna charge her $200 to get a portfolio together and then charge $10 a month to keep the portfolio going, and that they get 10% of her earnings.

She said 'well it seems a bit like a scam but I think I'll try anyway..'

Is this a scam?

I did modeling for a super short time (a long time ago) and I seem to recall something about if agencies want to charge you for the portfolio, dont do it...? But maybe I've got that wrong..

Any one have any experience with this...?  Should I talk my friend out of it.?

guitar surgery?

TQC, my dad has an old guitar that his father bought from...like a pawn shop or something way back in the day. We (me+dad) just noticed that it was broken this morning. Neither of us broke it, it's just a really old, cheap (Harmony brand) guitar, and it has been sort of sitting there, hanging out on its own for a while. I am guessing that the tension on the strings was too much for the old wood of the bridge and it eventually gave way?? IDK. My dad says that it is just a ~throwaway~, but it has sentimental value to me. My grandfather played it, my father played it, and I learned to play on it. I WANT TO REVIVE IT!!!!

Collapse )

Is this fixable? How should I go about it? I am pretty fucking handy, but would it be best to take it in somewhere? If it isn't mendable, then that's ok--I mean, I have two other guitars that I can play--but I would really like this one to be somewhat playable for those moments when I am feeling nostalgic.

If you were to sell all your posessions, apart from a select few things that were totally necessary or extremely dear to you, how much money do you think you'd get? I don't own a house, a car, or anything big and fancy (I live with my parents) but I have lots of clothes, and lots of books. I think I could get about ten thousand dollars.

What possessions would you keep? I'd keep a some clothes (a few t-shirts, a couple pairs of pants, some summer dresses, and some 'nice' clothes') a week's worth of underwear, necessary toiletries, a blank journal, a pen, a camera, my iPod, my mobile phone, and my passport.

And how far do you reckon you could get around the world before you ran out of money? Where would you go? Pretty far, if I lived on the cheap. I'd head up through South-East Asia to China, take a side-trip to Japan and South Korea, then make for Mongolia and eventually head to Kazakhstan. I'd head down through the Middle East to Iran, and by then I'd probably have run out of money. So I'd go home.

1.)  My upstairs air conditioning unit is out.  Despite the fact that we have a perfectly good couch, and that I offered to help him move a mattress downstairs, my husband is sleeping in our bedroom, which is currently 89 degrees (Fahrenheit).  Is he off his rocker: yes or no?

2.)  Could you sleep comfortably in a bedroom that is 89 degrees?

3.)  What temperature do you keep your bedroom at night?

TQCers, please share your opinion with me!

During the last years I have done a lot of travelling, which means getting to know a lot of different people.
And especially with American people I have often come across the cliché that European people - especially women - are a lot more laid-back/open when it comes to sex, their sexuality or simple nudity.

Have you heard of this before?
Do you think it is true, generally speaking?
Have you ever had an experience proving it right or wrong to you?
Extra: Do you want to tell me your nationality?

(Yes of course I know, it's almost impossible to make a true statement over such a mass of people, but I'm interested in your personal opinion and experiences.)

My ferret has inverted my screen colours and I don't know how to undo this in ubuntu. I have googled, but to no avail. Can you help me? Super (windows button) + M fixed it :D I CAN SEE AGAIN

dk/dc: What is the last expired food you ate? How expired? Did it have any consequences?

I found a packet of vegan tim-tams in a bag in my room today. They expired in Nov 2008. No consequences yet... although I am of the belief the colours of my screen are inverted, so who knows?
