What can I do, TQC? I've told her to relax and not think so much, but it's not working :(
ETA: She's calmed down now. Apparently she was just stressed from her babysitting job.
I'm fairly independent, personality-wise, but I've never been away from my family before for a long time and I'm still relying on them. I won't be far from home, but I will still be totally overtaken by school and lonely, and I don't have any close friends who will be there, so idk how to deal with being so removed from everything. Advice?
b. Let's say you are starting college and have just gotten into a relationship with someone who is going to be living an hour and a half away. Neither of you will have a car and neither of you are totally sure what you want out of this, particularly your partner who is rather inexperienced. What would you do? Would you stay in a relationship, have an open relationship, or decide to be just friends, or what?
c. dk/dc about these: what's something you're looking forward to in the next week?
What do you get?
Is it accurate?
First Ever TQC Question - Yeah!!
When's your birthday? how are you now?
& if you don't want to say, what's your big obsession right now?
I'm in love with the L4D games all of a sudden. Can't get enough of them.
Care to share what the entry was about?
"She might be weird and aloof because she is a virgin."
Do you think virgins are different then non-virgins?
What was it?
Are you enjoying it?

well, damn. instead: what color is your underwear?

Can you control anything 'odd' about your body?
how likely do you think it is that i will get a job that's interviewing 12 people?
dk/dc will you tell me about your last ~first date~ and what you did to prepare?
I've just woken up at 3:45 am. I've never been on at this time before. Hello, night crew!
I know someone who's gone three years without actual sex, outside of a blowjob a year and a half ago.
WHEN ARE YOU GETTIN' LAID NEXT?
Fucking tomorrow. YES.
If you had to plan a wedding, what would your theme be?
I'm watching this episode of My Fair Wedding with this woman who wants to have a SWAMP THEMED WEDDING and oh no girl.
Just tonight, I've been "gifted" with a dead cricket, a nearly dead tree frog, a not-quite-dead giant grasshopper, a miniature Hello Kitty doll (I have no idea WHERE it came from), and a very dead lizard.
What is your favorite restaurant?
What are some endearments a Japanese mother might use when talking to her children?
DK/DC, what's your favourite video game? Anything Zelda or Mario.
doorframes: do they really suck to fix?
I'm very sad, but I can't afford to buy it and I got a nice car to replace it, but I loved this car so much. =[
What should I do to ease my sadness? =[
My daughter likes: Books, kittens, and Elmo.
My son likes: Tigger, Cars, and Basket ball.
Should I have elmo reading a book with a kitty for my daughter and my son's with Tigger in a car shooting a basket ball, or stick to a one theme thing?

dk/dc- If you could paint any room of your house any color right now (permitting you had the money and the time), which room and what color?
Vincent. I think it's pretty badass, and others have told me so
2. It's raining buckets outside. Should I go out for lunch and brave the rain, and come back soaked? Or stay dry and go hungry?
3. Do you consider yourself nerdy? Why?
Yes. I love doing computery/gamey stuff. And I have forever, and it takes up a good chunk of my existence
4. Have you ever used Linux? Which distribution? Did you like it, or were you just confused?
Yes, Ubuntu and OpenSuUSE. I liked using them both generally, but I had to use OpenSUSE for a class where I had to make changes to the system then spend 30 minutes recompiling it all only to find that it didn't work. Lots of nights in the computer lab writing code in C until 5AM. Grr.
5. Will you post a picture of your favorite poster that's on your wall (or if you don't have posters, some other kind of wall-adornment)
I don't have any
6. Favorite word that starts with the letter....P! Will you tell me?
any news articles drive you batshit recently?
I already ate something as soon as I realized in the hopes that it'll help and I've got a water bottle. I'm just hoping the nausea doesn't start to really kick in on the train... :/
DK/DC: I'm on a diet but going to class means 120 degree heat, a train, and lots of walking. It's causing really bad cramps in my feet and legs. Is there a way I can give my legs more "fuel" without compromising my diet?
If you could move anywhere (money being no problem) where would you move? Why?
I called him last night to let him know I was staying over a friend's house. He asked me, "You're on birth control, right? That stops you from getting pregnant?" "Yes, Dad. I'm on NuvaRing, and that's what it does." WTF? To his knowledge, I'm barely dating, let alone sleeping with anyone. Was he just being worried/father-like? Or does he actually think that I'm a slut? And should I bring it up today when I talk to him, like, "Hey, Dad, who exactly do you think I'm sleeping with when I've only had two guys over the house two times each and it's obvious I'm not really interested in either of them that way?"
DK/DC: What was the last piece of clothing you bought, and where did you buy it from?
Where I am at uni is a small town, so there are barely any jobs, but I don't want to be driving all the time/wasting money on petrol and not meeting people in my town.
Instead of being embarrassed or outraged, I was rather amused. And maybe just a wee bit flattered...
Does this make me abnormal? (PS: Chances are fair that I knew the guy.)
Dunno/Dun care/Nobody says Woo to me: what's you're favorite thing about autumn? And do you call it autumn or fall?
Will charities even want these t-shirts and out-of-season skirts? The majority are in great condition and I'm going to go through again and throw out anything slightly shifty looking/torn.
I have finally have a cat here at school, after a lot of issues with my roommate, who claims she is allergic but has her own cat at home. Now that we're down here she's all over my cat, even though she didn't help pay the pet deposit or buy litter boxes, toys, etc. Do I call her on her shit? Am I being too selfish?
dk/dc, my first class today is Rhetoric of Harry Potter, what's the coolest class you've ever taken?
Do you prefer shoulder bags, or one that has shorter straps that fit in the crook of your elbow, or do you like tiny clutches that you carry in your hands, or...?
If you use a purse with shoulder straps, what shoulder do you usually carry it on? Are you purse-shoulder ambidextrous? Because I HAVE to carry my purse on my left shoulder. I HAVE TO. I feel SO out of sorts when I put a purse on my right shoulder. UGH! DNW!!! I was out with a friend the other day, and I noticed that she casually switched her purse to the other shoulder a few different times, and I remember thinking, "Omg that is SO WEIRD. HOW CAN SHE DO THAT?" And then I realized that maybe I was the weird one for being so single-shouldered. TQC, WHICH ARE YOU?
Will you show me a picture of your purse? Here's mine. What do you normally carry in it? I carry all this junk in mine.
EDIT: Or if you don't have a picture of your purse, will you show me a picture of a purse that you really want?
If you are like, "Oh blah purses, ugh. That's what pockets are for!" Then will you please tell me a tacky joke? Like a real groaner. I need some more lame jokes to add to my repertoire.
What apps do I need for iphone 4?
Is the song content more important or the singing voice?
I just saw on a list of great sex songs that 'Closer' by Nine Inch Nails was number one or two. I understand why it's on there, but for me his voice isn't sexy enough to get me in the mood.
'Bad Things' by Jace Everett is such a sexy song to me, he has this awesomely sexy deep voice.
I honestly don't mind that much, but I know most people would find it unacceptable.
Is there such a thing as being too laid back?
Inspired by these lame campaign commercials I keep seeing.
did you have thoughts on how your lj icon affects your Karma?
Why do women's jeans have those ridiculously tiny/shallow front pockets instead of REAL pockets like men get?
Ladies, wouldn't it be nice to be able to fit more than $3 change and half of your fingers in your pockets?
How much change is in your wallet/pockets right now?
I am getting screwed while trying to get individual health insurance and it's going to be the death of me.
I mean, it's a movie directed by Sly Stallone, wasn't that enough of a clue?
ETA: What I meant is that some people expected to see a good movie with believable characters and a well developed plot
I'm starting to get the same antsy feeling i had when i was wanting my senior year of high school to be done with already. Only difference is, my parents are getting on my nerves more amongst other things.
For those who shop at/lust over www.anthropologie.com, what other stores/sites do you frequent that are similar (EDIT:) for home items?
I will be travelling mainly by train so that may limit what I see outside the cities.
How about the fact that the worst day of your life may still be yet to come?

I've been taking some pain meds for it, but they all say things like "Don't take more than x ammount of pills in 24 hours" or "Don't take longer for ten days", because it could cause a whole slew of issues (damage to the liver, ulcers, etc etc).
I'm just wondering, since I have a couple more days til I could even begin to go get my tooth checked out (I have a feeling its just growing in and the pain will go away soon, as like with my other wisdom teeth) if I keep taking two pills every four hours (as directed) and it sometimes doesn't quite clear the '24 hour' mark, how possible is it that I'm going to suffer any/all of the warnings that are listed? Or are those warnings for more very long-term usage?
( Collapse )
I'm a bit stuck and I want to wear them to my birthday party.
I am too nauseous and just about everything goes right through me, plus my gut feels like it is on fire so I am afraid to eat. Even the slightest amounts set me off sometimes. I can eat maybe a couple slices of bread, 1/3-1/2 of a can of soup(nothing acidic), or a few mouthfuls of cereal, and I drink water, green tea(decaf), and blue or green Gatorade and I still end up getting sick. I've already lost at least 10-15 lbs in less than 2 weeks.
None of the medicines (Pepto, Prevacid, etc...) help me and I have no insurance so I can't go to a Doctor.
Can you suggest some things that my gut might be able to handle? I am getting tired of the foods I listed above.
what did women generally wear during the winter back in the '50s? i can find a million pictures of women in cute sundresses and playsuits and whatnot, but very few of women during the winter.
eta: pictures would be awesome!

The classroom teachers whose students I am assisting use the Lexile framework to evaluate students' achievement levels. Unfortunately, Lexile seems to do a word-for-word analysis of the text. Our school's library is leveled, but I'm running into a problem with content. The words might be on the right level, but all the content I've found seems wildly inappropriate.
TLDR: How do I tell men to back off probably permanently (like none of that, "I'll be ready to date in a month so wait around" shit) without coming off like a complete bitch?
2. What are some weird foods that you like?

I always assumed it was paneer because that's Indian, but I'm seeing recipes online with just "cheese", cheddar or Emmenthal so...any clues?
ONE b: Are Indian restaurants/curry houses not popular in the US? I haven't been since '08 when I wasn't so into spicy stuff but I rarely see questions on here from USers about curry...
I think I might be that friend. Is it a bad thing to dress up a little much for a casual event? It's OK to constantly look fabulous, amirite?
Let's say that your company is in the midst of Busy Season, you're a salaried employee and overtime at your company is compensated with days off in the future at the head of the company's discretion, not extra cash moneys. For several weeks at the start of Busy Season you didn't take any lunch breaks and you stayed on average between 1.5 - 2 hours past close-of-business just to get all your shit done. Now that things seem to be winding down a tiny bit, your two basic choices are to take a lunch break and leave an hour late, or not take a lunch break and leave "on time." Which do you do and why?
Alternatively, why did you cry the last time you cried?
I pity the fooooooool that falls in love with you...

It's like an "oops!" moment!
How do you overcome an "oops" moment? Do you confront the friends, apologize, or pretend to not care?

dk/dc - if you aren't going back to school this year, do you wish you were?
do all laptops dull in screen brightness compared to a standard office computer? i assume the higher i pay for a laptop, the better quality i will get, and this was on the cheaper side. i am so new to having a laptop that i don't know what to expect with such things.
EDIT:I found the answer lol its called Back from by NIVE.

Dog owners - my two dogs are coming home in two weeks. They are adult beagles. So far, we have collars and leashes, bowls, food, treats, toys, crates, and beds on our list for dog stuff. We have a vet already and they are up to date on shots. What are we forgetting to get for our dogs?
Will you please tell me your favorite song or a song you're really digging at the moment so I can download it and put it on my mp3 player? I will call this TQC Mix! (and because I'm sure Noah doesn't want to spend 5 hours listening to my Sookie Stackhouse or Outlander novels)
I'll go first! I'm really digging The Constellations recently and I like their song called Felicia.

Have you seen the BBC's Sherlock? I love it.
What was the last book you read? Did you like it and would you recommend it?

Also, do you think it's tacky when parents give out gifts of just framed pictures of their children?
1. A lady I work with has asked me if I will watch her kids for her after school. I want to do it. She said she'll pay me $30 a day, which seems like a bit much. I'm not sure? but I just pick them up at school at 245 and watch them until 6. I do live about 30 mins from her, but it just seems like she'll be paying me a lot. Should I tell her I don't need that much or just go with it?
She's a single mom, but her ex husband (who also happens to be my High School math teacher who got fired for having an affair with another teacher hence the divorce [Catholic highschool] haha, awkward) helps out, plus I think she gets help from the gov't but I'm not sure.
Does $30 a day seem reasonable?
2. Does the "I was drunk, you can't hold it againsed me" excuse work on you? A friend of mine recently REALLY offended me and now refuses to apologize because she was 'drunk and should not be held accountable.' It's a piss off to me that she's going on like nothing happened. Should I just let it go? She crossed some serious lines and knows it, so I'm having a hard time getting over it.
3. Do you like spicy cheetos? Canada does not have em =[, but when I go to the USA I stock up. bahaha.
