Just wanted to post because I haven't been asking as many questions recently.

Have yall taken the poll of the day (It says have you ever grown your own vegetables?)?
I was surprised at the number of people who HAVE grown their own vegetables. Wow. (I haven't.)

Have you ever wanted to ask a question but were afraid of being judged or afriad of just the answers you would get in general? Did you ask it anyway? Was it worth it?

Anyway, I am logging off of livejournal I guess. Talk to yall later.

totally hypothetical, of course.

On a scale of 1 to 10, how utterly slutty is it to go on a first date when you still have a fading hickey from someone else?

The hickey would be concealed, obvs, otherwise it would just be terribly bad form.

So I am in a wedding on the 4th of September and my son has been invited to be the ring bearer. He's three and doesn't stand still. If he is at the wedding, there will be no attending the wedding. I will be chasing around my 3 year old. I am broke - so I can't hire a nanny. I'm probably missing some obvious solution but I can't seem to think of what I can do outside of having to leave the reception at the beginning to take him somewhere and finding someone to watch him during the ceremony. Just...the idea of having him with me at a wedding and reception is not my idea of ideal. While I would love to have him be the ring bearer, the more I think about it, it sounds like a lot of trouble.

Any ideas?

Travels

Okay so I'm like ready to buy my ticket for this but I want to be sure I get the best deal.
I want to wander Europe for a couple months before the end of this year. It seems to get cheaper and cheaper to fly the closer I get to the end of the year so I can cope with November and December.

Where can I get a really good search of the cheapest flight tickets I can get to somewhere in Central Europe sometime this year? Most sites seem to make me do a LOT of too specific searches over and over to figure this out.
What's snow and the weather in general like in Central Europe in November and December?
If I don't want to keep things very planned but I want to make my money go far, what's the cheapest way to find places to sleep throughout Europe?
Does anyone have any tips for wandering a foreign part of the world?
Are there any questions I'm forgetting?

Hello I'm back with my trainwreck of a love life. Sooo you guys remember the guy that dumped me out of the blue saying he lost interest? Well he was at a party with me last night and we screwed in the back of his car (never did it in a car before... I was quite fascinated when the windows actually fogged up like in titanic) and he said he changed his mind buuuuut we were drunk. So I asked him today if we could talk about it and he asked if it could wait until tomorrow. It's totally gonna be bad news y/y?

I am fuming! FUMING!

Basically, I've got into an argument with a friend. I've also loaned him just £20 from a couple days ago. He has the money now. So whilst we were arguing, I also asked for the money back. It might have sounded petty but I'm not losing money over it (even if it isn't much)!

And now, the argument continues and he brings up me taking back the money. He says I shouldn't ask for the money back because I don't need it. I THOUGHT THIS PART WAS FUCKING RIDICULOUS! All in all, because I'm not broke right now, he has no reason to pay me back. It ended with him throwing the scrunched up note at me.

Would this piss you off too TQC?

was the transition worth it (primarily money wise)?

I call my mom by her nickname, and have for years :) But, then again, I call my dad "Daddy", or "Farther" (I once wrote that on a card, cause I couldn't spell 'father')

Has anyone actually bought a Mac and got the free iPod touch as part of the "Back to school" deal? (http://store.apple.com/us/browse/campaigns/back_to_school?aid=www-naus-bts2010-00051)

Did you have to prove you were in school? Or did they just take your word for it? (I'm trying to get this deal, which also gives me 50 bucks off the computer, but I just graduated in May, so if they ask for proof, I might be out of luck. But who knows, maybe my school hasn't updated my records yet? Maybe?)

If you have a Mac, do you have Windows on it? What do you use? (Boot Camp?) Does it work well?

 When it comes to technology, I am, for the most part, lost.  Consumer electronics are foreign territory to me, since I've never been THAT into them.  So, this may be a dumb question, but you're all I've got, TQC.
I have an iPod Nano.  I know next-to-nothing about it, other than very simple, basic operation.  It was given to me as a gift, at a time when I didn't even want one, so I downloaded iTunes, put about 60 songs on the player, figured out how to play them, and called it a day.  At that time, I had a laptop, with my iTunes account synced to my iPod, and my wife had her computer with her stuff.

Then, both our computers died, and we replaced them with a single one.  She put her iTunes stuff on it...and now I can't figure out how to make mine work.  If I plug my player into the computer with her iTunes loaded, it shows up under Devices, but won't let me access it.  I created a second user account on the computer, reloaded iTunes (from scratch, without her info in it)...and the same thing.  When I plug it in, it shows up, but doesn't let me in.  When I go to the My Computer file manager deal (Windows 7), I can see it (E:)...but I can't open it.

So, questions:
1) Can I have two different iPods, using different music, controlled through the same iTunes account?
2) If no, can I, with two separate user accounts, have two iTunes accounts, with two different libraries, synced to two different iPods?
3) If yes, does my problem sound like an iPod problem, an iTunes problem, a Windows 7 problem, or a computer problem?
4) How do I fix the problem?

Bonus Question:
I can trade music back and forth from one iPod to another, right?  I have stuff that she wants, but I'm worried that if I try to sync them together somehow, that it'll just erase one of 'em and copy everything from the other.  I figure there's got to be something preventing sharing between players, otherwise that whole "file sharing" thing would be a moot point...wouldn't it?

*ETA*

Gee, I sure am glad The QUESTION Club is always so helpful with questions.  Guess I should just stick with simple, mind-numbing repeats like "What's for breakfast?" and shit like that.

TLDR: What's for breakfast?
yummy beer!, yummy

 I know I just posted, but things are pretty slow and I'm bored.

TQC, will you choose a new career for me?  If the Army doesn't work out, I'm going to need to find something else to escape accounting.  Srs and non-srs answers appreciated.

I hate accounting.  I'm tired of being in an office all day, and staring at a computer screen.  I want to actually DO something.  I want to be active, outside preferably, but not required.  Something that, at the end of the day, I can give a definite answer for what I did that day.

Requisites:
- Has to be employable/marketable (don't want to get training in something then find out that I can't find a job doing it)
- Has to be interesting (I'm tired of boring work)
- Training has to be minimal, or at least conducive to working at the same time (I can't afford to be a full-time student without income)
- Has be make at least a living wage...not rich, but not poverty either

So...any ideas?

(Again, srs AND non-srs.)

How terrible?

How bad to these frames look on me? I haven't been able to decide but I'm pretty sure they look awful.

My mother thinks they look cute, but I could wear an outfit from a Lady Gaga video and she'd probably say the same, so I cannot trust her.

SO, mighty TQC, who does not care about my feelings, on a scale of 1 (they look awesome!) to 10 (omg pls take them off immediately), how bad do they look on me?

What's the first thing you learn about someone new?

Every time I meet a new potential friend or bf I'll eventually get excited and tell a current friend about it and then they ask me all these questions about them that I know I SHOULD HAVE asked but I just...didn't think about it.

Example: I'll meet someone on campus and see them as a cool person/potential friend. Then I walk away and I can tell you things like their favorite sonnet or how they take their coffee, but do I know how old they are? What they do for a living? Their last name? No.
Sometimes if it's just someone I run into a lot on campus (like someone in one of my classes) then I could tell you where they were born and how many years they've lived in this town, but do I even know their first name? Nope. I didn't even THINK to ask.

Does this happen to anyone else?
You live your life and then later something happens and you think "oh, right...that would have definitely been the more socially acceptable way to handle that..."
It makes me feel really dumb most of the time.

My next door neighbors - as in, their back porch is less than 10 feet from my bedroom window - have an organ on their back porch. And like to play it. After midnight.

Twice now, they've woken me up and I've leaned out the window and asked them to stop. But really? Playing an organ at/after midnight? Really?

I think I'd be within my rights to ring their doorbell and run away at 6:30am when I'm walking my dog, as payback.

I really won't, but I love to dream up situations where I'd get back at them.

Any other ideas of what I can do to show them my anger? Serious and non-serious ideas welcome.

In the past week and a half or so, I've suddenly gotten a very dry/itchy/sore scalp, with patches of major dandruff. This is not normal for me, at all. I haven't recently changed my shampoo/conditioner, or anything. I've been using this organic brand for several months now with no ill effects; and I don't put other product in my hair or blow-dry/heat-style. Any ideas as to why this happened and how I can treat it? It came up so suddenly and I doubt I can attribute it to my shampoo, and the medicated T-Gel types of shampoos are expensive and I don't want to get into a dependancy on those if this isn't a long-term problem.

I need validation.

A guy I met in high school randomly got a hold of me one day after not seeing or hearing from him for 4 years. He invited me to his house to party the past 3 weekends. Other than at the parties, we haven't talked (and when we have it was nothing substantial.) I want to get to know him better, but the partying atmosphere isn't really allowing for it.

Should I ask him to hang out sometime, just the two of us?
Do you think the fact that he hasn't made any moves to get closer means that he doesn't want to?
Am I just an extra to make the party bigger?

time

its like it wasn't there at all

people fall in love and engage in the most intimate and exclusive kind of relationship. then they break up. and then they part take in a series of steps to ensure complete and utter erasure of said relationship.

it seems oxymoron-ic. i have never quite been able to wrap my head around it.no other relationship seems to end on such estranged terms. parents fight with their children but it is not customary for either party to routinely erase and forget the existence of each other. friendships fade but neither side vows to never see the other person again.

so why is it that the most intimate and exclusive relationships, romantic ones, warrant such utter destruction of what was when they end?

However, i'm bored of being at home and want to get into my house. Should I move in earlier?

Imagine you've worked in a small office (less than 20 people) for only a few months and have a direct manager whom you report to. When your manager starts slacking off and pawning her duties off on you, or leaving early every Friday for reasons you have proof are fake, would you feel justified in speaking up to the business owner, whom you aren't even sure likes you (or anyone, for that matter), if and when he/she ever shows up at the office?

Do you think people should be given multiple chances for DWIs/DUIs? Or should they get the harshest penalty the first time around?

Not that my paycheque will be very much anyway). Nobody wants to buy my shitty old stereo equipment/camera lenses/books. How does I make monies?

Tell me something awesome that happened to you today, so I can feel good about nice things happening to other people?

Quick fellow TQC kinksters!

If I'm buying my first corset, and I'm between sizes usually, should I go up or down a size? There's no option to try one on!

I've always wanted a corset.

If someone on your flist deletes their journal, how concerned would you be?

Not very, because almost everyone I've ever seen do it undeletes. I would want to know what happened because I'm nosy.

I've decided I need some hobbies and am considering volunteering, but I have no idea where to start. Those who volunteer, what do you do and how did you get started? Also, how often do you volunteer and what has been the best/worst experiences you have had? I'm open to anything you are willing to share!

My best friend is coming to stay!
I haven't seen him for 2 years, and when we have seen each other it's only been for a day at a time.
What can I do to make sure he has a great time? I have lots of plans already.
Do you think it'll be awkward suddenly being in each others physical presence?
Is your best friend of the opposite sex?

 Do you know of any free software that can be used to burn *bootable* disks? 

How knowledgeable would you say you are about technological things?

Why did I open up my computer case to find a fork inside?

Every time my fiancé and I leave the house my dog goes and stands in her pool. Why does she do this?

I don't have a DVR. What are some software options that alert me or keep a log of when new episodes of TV shows air so I don't miss them?

Have you ever peed on yourself? Were you drunk? Did you like it?

Every time I fly I get VERY intense stabbing pains in my head and neck, centered around my jaw and in my ears and teeth. I told my husband and he said it's not normal for flying to be so painful.

Does anyone else experience these pains while flying? If it's not normal, what's going on?


[Edit: Apparently for teeth at least it has it's own name: Barodontalgia.]

A girl's boyfriend promises he would call while he's out of town, but doesn't until he gets back a few days later.  She gets angry.

Do you think her anger is justified or is she being too controlling?

Because:  my boyfriend went out of town for the weekend, didn't call until he got back home, so I got angry.  He, in turn, got upset which got his mother upset.  She called me and told me I was being controlling and I should stop acting like his mother.

Inspired by the animal crackers question earlier...
 

If you could have any animal's shape added to the animal crackers, which animal would you choose?

I was going to pick sheep but apparently they are already featured, so I choose the scarab beetle.

How long do you think someone should wait before going to the doctor for pain? The day it starts? A week?

I ask because I've been having crippling joint pain. It's so weird, I know nothing's sprained or twisted because I haven't done anything. It started in my shoulders, moved to my right ankle, then my left knee, then my left ankle. I didn't have pain for about a day but today my fingers were in a lot of pain and now both my ankles hurt. It's usually not gradual and gets way worse with pressure. I should go to the doctor, right? My mom keeps writing it off as growing pains or a "joint virus" or whatever.

I have notary public questions, but it involves legal matters too

I hope one of you is a notary for I have a question. I, too, am a notary, but I'm not a particularly skilled one, and I just use it primarily for business form bullshit with little risk.

Let's put it out there in the open. I'm not very knowledgable about this stuff and my there's many moments when I'm probably downright idiotic, so cut me some slack on this

This is where you teal deers can skip to the next post, for it gets unnecessarily complicated

i've decided to give okcupid a try. i'm sick of moping about my ex or w/e he was, i have friends who met their boyfriends on there and my roommate has been into it lately. and i'm never going to get to marry Matthew Broderick and waiting around for someone to come along is boring and frustrating and i'm impatient. i'm also not looking for anything super serious and i'd like to just be out getting to know different guys and macking on the ones i really fancy.

but what the hell do you say to people you find that you'd like to talk to?

i have no idea how to start these things! i don't like trying to come up with some witty or cheeky question about something in their profile, it feels forced. but heyhow'sitgoin' seems too hollow and blah, but i don't wanna be like, HEY LET'S MEET UP! straight away.

what should i say??

I've been on a few dates with this guy and do like him a bit more each time I see him, but the one thing that's putting me off is the fact that he kind of smells. It's like BO mixed with feet mixed with stale cigarettes and it's really obvious.

Any advice? I don't particularly want to kiss him or anything because the smell puts me off. Is there any way to tell someone they stink without being totally rude about it?

Would you start to date someone who was only living part time in your country?

Like, say they were Australian and only had a year and a half on their visa. Would you be scared to get too close?
