I'm getting the sniffles, and am sleepy but not tired just yet. I also really just wanna read a book. Should I take a bubble bath before bed, TQC?

When is the last time you took a bubble bath? Do you enjoy them?

I moved in with my friend as a favor because her fiance left her and her lease was not up. Its all her furniture as well as a microwave and etc etc. She's started telling me that I need to buy a BLENDER so she can make smoothies. She feels like I don't contribute much...INCLUDING her always having to pay for stamps for our electricity bill. She ALWAYS seems to screw me over somehow for a couple of bucks. But I just CAN'T be bitchy like she is. I don't feel comfortable at all with my living situation.... Am I in the wrong here?

I am trying to mail somebody a Wii Balance Board, but I can't find a box that fits it. The dimensions I need are 21x14x5.

Do you know of any boxes that might fit this? Do you think I could just heavy duty wrap it in bubble wrap and tape an address and put a shit load of stamps on it, and a Fragile sticker, and it would send okay?

I am going to the post office tomorrow, to see if they have a box or something, but I'm worried that will cost extra to shipping, and I can barely afford shipping as it is. So, my other question is:

If the post office has to supply you with a box, does that cost more?

When's the last time you did something stupid around other people?

Mine was a few days ago. I said to a friend, "There's two movies I thought for sure were coming out this year but they haven't yet. Kinda pissed because I really want to see them." He asked which ones and I said, "Kick Ass and the A Team movies." He looked at me like o.O and said, "Kick Ass came out 5 months ago and A Team came out in June."

I had somehow managed to not hear about that, AT ALL.

As it turns out, A Team, based on the reviews I read, sounds like it sucked. So I don't think I missed much. Kick Ass sounded good enough that I just went out and bought the DVD earlier today. Probably gonna watch it tomorrow.

Anyway, embarrassing!

Have you ever had to ask for an extension on an assignment? Why?

I never have because all of the professors I've had have only allowed extensions for emergencies and I've never been in a situation that warranted an extension. I have a professor now who will give extensions for non emergencies also but I still don't think I'd ever ask for one.

 What was the last thing that made you or almost throw up?

I lifted up a dog blanket that is under my bed and omg it was the worst smell in the world D:. At least I know why my dogs have been smelling so badly even two days after a bath.

I'm applying to an biologist position at an aquarium in England.

They said to send them your resume and cover letter, but be sure to include your salary expectations.

Where do I write that, in my cover letter or my resume? It seems like it would be awkward in my cover letter.

I have to cancel a 911 call, do I call 911 back? D:


Edit: called the non emergency number and they cancelled it.

My dad's very depressed and has a history of suicide threats and attempts and he left in his car threatening so I called 911 out of fear for his safety and the safety of others.

I'm tutoring today and would like to base the lesson on spelling out colors and numbers.
I can use a mask for the project or I can use a crown (for the girl to decorate)

Which should I use?!

What are you doing today?
Have you ever been anywhere where no cars are allowed? Where?

The island where I tutor the girl has no cars, just bicycles. :D

So I took a lunchable with chicken and cheese to work and I just looked at the side and it says, "Sell by August 21 2010." Should I eat it? I'm really paranoid about meat and that seems a little too long ago for my liking.

ETA: Problem solved, I decided to eat just the cracker and cheese part and throw the meat out because it seemed a little off to me. That could just be paranoia speaking, though.

On an unrelated note, do you have rain boots? If so, where did you get them and what do they look like?

I'm planning to buy a new couch but the issue is that I have 3 somewhat destructive animals.

Fabric couches are hard to clean and start to stink after awhile, but a leather couch seems like it would easily be ripped and rendered useless. I've thought about getting a leather couch and getting a sofa cover, but are there any thick enough that they could withstand animal claws, but flexible enough I could throw them into a washing machine?

In this post, write down the punchline for a joke (without the joke). The more baffling out of context the better

Here's my contribution

"Young man", said the doctor, "there's a big difference between gangrene and lipstick"

I need a question, don't I?

Ladies, if your last name was Wunn and you married a guy whose last name was Durlan, would you take the last name Wun-Durlan? If you gave birth to a daughter, would you name her Alison Wun-Durlan?

holy crap college is expensive

For those of you who attended college in the past but no longer do (you finished, you quit, whatever), what was your average yearly total tuition bill? When did you last attend?

Do you know what that institution charges now?

Mine was around $5000-5500 per year for 14-16 hours per semester. I finished in 2005. Now it's $11-12k/yr.

My buddy and I have been watching a summer miniseries together (Persons Unknown, and it's not so good) but this week is the 2 hour finale!!! I suggested we do something delicious for the finale, and he agreed. He then said to do something savory, not sweet, which sucks because I'm more a baker than a chef.

What should I make? We'll be eating while watching the show, so nothing formal or too loud/crunchy. I don't eat meat, but he does and I don't mind making something with it for him. Any ideas?!?!

 Do you believe that teenagers do actually have their "whole lives ahead of  them", as the phrase goes?
[Edit: I did not mean this in the literal sense. I meant it as in do you believe teenagers have more opportunities to decide how they are going to live their life etc. :) Sorry!]

Can you name actors who began their careers after their teenage years and became successful?

My mother and I both work at the same university and also in two buildings that are close to each other.   She just came up to meet me for lunch but after we finished she kept bugging me about coming to see my office and meet my co-workers.   I am against this idea and said that I would rather not.   Of course she was trying to guilt trip me about not wanting to bring her to my office, but I just don't want to.  Period.  She is disappointed. 

So, TQC, am I wrong to not want to bring my mother to my office and then be forced to introduce her to all of my co-workers?   

A little awkward right?  Y / Y?


No it is not for networking purposes either.

Can you write a story in ten words or less, and if so, will you post it in the comments?



I'm taking the GRE in a few days and don't feel particularly nervous about it. Have you ever taken it? Did you do well? Which was easier for you, the English or the math?

IUDs

TQCers with IUDs... How long does it take to get one put in?

I'm trying to schedule some last minute appointments before I leave for school at the start of September. My dentist office had a cancellation for an appointment at 1:40pm on August 31st. On the same day I'm scheduled to get my IUD put in at 12:30 pm. The latest I can leave to get to the dentist is 1:15pm.

Is this a feasible time frame? Or is an IUD insertion a particularly lengthy process?

EDIT:

I switched my appointment to 9am that same day so hopefully that will make my life a little easier. Thanks for the help everyone!

Congratulations! You're back in high school. And your high school, assuming it wasn't already, is in the middle of a small, religious town.

Your best friend of the opposite sex tells you one day that he/she is gay. Rumors have been spreading about your friend's sexual orientation, and as a result, he/she is being bullied mercilessly. EDIT: This is not only including verbal abuse, but physical abuse as well.

Your friend asks you to pretend to be his/her boyfriend/girlfriend. Not for very long, maybe just a few months. Hold hands, eat lunch together, go on dates, make out a little bit, that's it.

Would you do it?

If yes, what if your friend wanted you to have very loud (and obviously, fake) sex with them at an upcoming house party most of the school was going to be attending?

Would you still do it?

And yes, this is inspired from the trailer for Easy A.

My dryer is broken. I live near my college. My college has free laundry and they do not lock their laundry rooms during the summer. I'm not going to live on campus next year so I'm not paying room and board but I'm still paying tuition. Today I did my laundry there.

Is this wrong/stealing?

Is anyone here familiar with how the NYS DMV works?

I have been on my parents insurance for the past two years and its time to renew my car's registration. I have my own insurance now. Do I need to surrender my plates, or can I keep my current ones? Will the new registration price be the same price as the renewal price? The DMV is closed and the website is useless.

I know that Google will have the answer I'm looking for, but I don't know how to phrase the question.

I'm ordering shirts to sell to people at an event, without taking pre-orders. I know I should buy a few X-smalls and smalls, more mediums and larges, etc, but was looking for some sort of distribution chart that will give me suggestions - like 5% x-smalls, 10% smalls, 25% mediums.

Does this make sense? Is there a name for what I'm looking for?

Have you ever been involved in a car accident? Whose fault was it? What happened?

I was just in my first tonight. It was super minor, we didn't exchange information. I was pulled out of a driveway too far trying to see around trees and get into traffic and my hood caught the side of this guy's minivan. If I hadn't heard it or seen the guy stopping after, I wouldn't have even known cars collided. No damage except some of my paint on his car, but he was really mad and I feel awful. :(

question for crafty folks ....

Is it remotely possible to paint shoe buckles? (Without it peeling/rubbing off,etc) If so, is there a certain kind/brand? Would I need a sealer?

I ordered some boots online, I love them, except I thought the buckles and eyelets looked silvery on the website. But, they are super bright gold.

I still want to keep the boots, and was wondering if I could use a silver paint on them. Even if I could just tone-down the brightness of the gold, I'd be happy.

(They weren't terribly expensive, so if I ruin them, I wouldn't be out a ton of money.)

Thanks in advance!

Have you ever had sex on a hard floor? Was it any good?

When I read or view erotica, this seems to happen a lot, but I can't imagine it would be very comfortable. Regardless of which part of the body is touching the floor, if it's actually on the floor (as in, one or both partners is lying down on the floor, and not in a standing or sitting position), that would hurt, wouldn't it? Whether it's your head, or your knees, or your pelvis, or whatever.

There's something on the left side of my desk making noise. It's a very cluttered desk, so the possibilities are endless. I thought it was something shifting very slowly, but I pushed things around and it still goes. It sort of sounds like the noise that records make when the needle is at the end and isn't the type to return.

So, TQC. WHAT IS THIS NOISE?

Have you ever experienced a persistent, annoying noise? Did you ever discover what it was? I have a lot of stories like this.

A few weeks ago, lightning struck close to our house, and one of our TVs has been messing up ever since. It's a flat screen LCD TV, and when you turn it on, the picture will stay on for a few minutes. AFter that, the picture goes off, but the sound continues.

We're looking into getting this fixed, but does anybody know what this might be? Does a bulb need replacing, or is this more of a wiring problem?
