What are the best kind of heels to wear for work, but that are also comfy? Where is the best place to buy them? Prefer around the $50-$80 range, and not all high of a heel, enough to be professional looking.

I have a pair of Steve Madden heels, but they are not good for running around in :/

I'm going to a photo shoot this weekend, and I have to dress smart (all black), if that helps.

I have 100% cranberry juice that I am trying to drink for my UTI. Needless to say, it is very very very tart. What can I add to it to make it a bit sweeter/more palatable?

I'm taking my kitten to be spayed tomorrow and I'm so nervous and worried about her. I had to take away her food bowl at 11 and she's been sitting and crying, even though she's been fed. I'm getting major anxiety over it just because the last 3 times that I had to take a cat to the vet, it was because they were being put down and I'm probably going to act like an ass at the vet and be all teary-eyed when I leave her. She's going to be fine, right?

They said that she would be ready to go home in a few hours, but will they give her pain meds? How active or inactive should I expect her to be?

What do you have to do tomorrow?

Dr LJ, are there any signs that indicate a viral cold may have moved on to a secondary, bacterial chest infection?

DK/DC how long do you wait before going to the Dr if you have a bad chesty cough? What sort of symptoms encourage you to do more than let it run it's course?

(gross TMI, I have had a very heavy chest cough for oh, 2 weeks? I lost my voice, got it back, throat isn't too sore any more but the stuff that comes up is... badness :\ but there's been so many viral colds this winter and I don't want to bother getting antibiotics if I don't really need them. But last year I got pneumonia from trying to tough out my bronchitis so.... )

Based on my class discussion today:

You are a  huge fan of Star Trek. You are summoned for a jury trial of a very important case regarding the current President of the United States. Do you think its appropriate to wear your Star Trek uniform when you are a juror? You only wear it on special occasions and decide to wear in judicial court? Is this socially acceptable to do? 

Edit: You all make sense. All the people in my class thought it was fine for a 40 year old women to wear her Star Trek uniform during the Whitewater trials with Bill Clinton.

Just wonering..

Mmkay, due to a recent discussion with a friend of mine I am gonna ask a pretty deep question.

There is a black girl at my place of work who is racist against most white people, she kinda feels like all white people owe her and all other black people something for the way some white people treated some black people way back in the day (and some still get treated that way.) Now my friend says that only white people can be racist because they have all the 'power' in society. Only those with power can be racist.

So what do you guys think. Do you think that a race other than 'white' can be racist??

TQC, what are the chances that a 22 year old female of average strength can move a full sized mattress up a flight of stairs by herself?

My dad seems to think that because years ago he moved a queen size mattress up our stairs alone I should be able to move this one, but I don't think it's possible.

Edit: I'm going to try to do it right now!

Edit #2: I did it! Now I just have to do the box spring, which shouldn't be any trouble.

So, I teach a daycare. We have about 90 kids, and e probably a little more than half are boys. Another teacher and I were talking about the behavior of one of her kids, and what we could do about it, when we realized that most of the boys (3 to 5 year olds) are a bunch of whiney babies. They can't do anything for themselves, every thing they say comes out as a whine, they can't handle their emotions or anything. What is wrong with boys these days? Is it their parents? Do they not want their precious miracle baby to never grow up? It's so annoying. The girls are all writing their names/putting on their own shoes/etc etc and we can't get most of the boys to wipe their own freaking noses or clean up without a struggle.
Anyone else notice this? or is it just my kids?

Another poop post

After eating several cherry popsicles, you take a poop. When you're done, you behold your handiwork. Due to the artificial coloring, your poo came out cherry red (the same color as the popsicles), and because of the way it landed in the bowl, it fell into the shape of a HEART. What do you do now?

The Last Unicorn

My wife and I are having an argument about the age appropriateness of The Last Unicorn film.

I was 3 when I saw it in the theatre and think that there is nothing wrong with showing it to my 4 year old daughter and 2 year old son. My 4 month old son is too young to care.

So Question Club, what is the youngest age that The Last Unicorn movie would be appropriate for?

I don't understand why I'm getting pingback messages. I don't even know what they are or how they happen. I thought my journal was public and only the private messages were private.

Here is my TQC Update.

(no subject)

Two toootally unrelated questions:

1) I'm in my sophomore year of college. I late dropped a class last spring because my course load was ridiculous. I took the class in the summer and got an A. This year I'd like to late drop another (it's an online class, we need to find soil samples, and it is virtually impossible to do so on my campus). If I drop it, I will be taking it again next year (not online...only the online class requires the sample digging). How shitty is it going to look to employers that I dropped a class both my freshman and sophomore years? Does it look less shitty if I eventually do take the class and get an A? I really can't deal with trying to dig 18 inch holes on campus without getting arrested.

2) Would you rather your significant other cheat on you physically or emotionally? In other words,

Scenario A: He/she has a one-night stand with someone he/she barely knows. No cuddling, no conversation, and no sleeping in the same bed as the other person. Just sex.

Scenario B: He/she spends the whole night cuddling, spooning, and talking with a friend. They make an emotional connection, act couple-ish, but don't have sex.

Which would be less hurtful to you? Why?

credit score advice.

If I paid off all of my debt (about 1500 dollars), how long would it take for my score to be boosted any signifigant amount?

If I instead starting making small payments towards the various debts, would that also cause a credit boost?

Also, if you happened to have poor credit, what is the max % of interest you would pay on a car loan?

You wake up after a long night that involved alcohol. You remember very little of it, except that there were some strangers involved. You try and climb out of bed and it's difficult because you can't move your arms. You look down and see why. Your hands are in your jeans pockets (which you fell asleep in) and someone duct-taped your elbows to your torso. So, you can't pull your hands out of your pants. WHAT THE FUCK HAPPENED LAST NIGHT? You roll out of bed and inspect your place. Nothing's missing and everything seems to be in its proper place. Your cell phone and wallet/purse are in their usual place. However, without arms, you can't use your phone...or open doors...or even turn the tv on. Your front door is locked like it would be normally.

Pant-hemming advice?

So, TQC. I just bought two pairs of dress pants for work. I'm short and they need to be hemmed. I'm also going on vacation for a week on Friday. Should I:

a) try to find a tailor here, set up an appointment tomorrow and leave them with him/her for the week I'll be gone?
b) take the pants with me on vacation and see if I can set up an appointment while I'm there?
c) wait until I get back, wear nice jeans for the first few days and find a tailor then?
d) try to do it myself even though I've never sewed anything in my life and don't own a sewing machine?

 So I'm in Key Club.
It's a volunteer organization, known internationally.

That still doesn't stop us from getting the question, "Do you make keys?"

But I would join a club that made keys.
And so would a few of my friends. 

So would it make sense for me to try to start a club that actually does make skeleton keys as a hobby? Would that make sense? Would it be possible, especially for a high school? I know we have wood shop and auto shop (and I don't think we have a metal shop class), but I am a girl and have taken neither, and I therefore must be taught, so would it even make sense for ME to be the one trying to start it?

Is this normal?

I'm a twenty year old male and I never had a girlfriend. I was sort of a late bloomer and I din't really start reaching out to the opposite sex until around 16-17. I would say I was close to getting into a relationship a few times but it never happened.

When I graduated I ended up going to the same school as some people I knew from highschool. It was a group of us male and female that hung out when we could between classes and we even went to a concert. I started falling for this one girl who I'll call "Kelly". So I started hanging out with Kelly when it was just the two of us and it worked out for a few weeks or so and then she started acting weird, stopped saying hi to me and would avoid me around campus. So this pretty much left me heart broken so after a week or so I gave up on her and looked elsewhere for a relationship.

This time I chose to go after someone who showed interest in me. I met a girl through a friend of mine on campus and she instantly showed interest in me. She would play with her hair when she talked to me, we would walk each other to our classes, eat lunch together etc. I got her number and when I tried to set up a date she always had an excuse of why she could not go and then a few weeks down the road she told me she had a boyfriend, someone she met in one of her classes. I was once again heartbroken and had no success with woman since.

What am I doing wrong?

workplace morons....

We hired a girl to work 2-6 Monday-Friday and she came in today to fill out paper work. I asked her if she could come in at 1 tomorrow so I could show her around and do a little training and she said "no, I can't. I have other things to do". WTF? So I asked if that was an every Thursday thing or not. Then she told me that she has class on Tuesdays all day and 'other stuff going on Thursdays'. Seriously??!! When I interviewed her, she said nothing about not working t/th and I even said many times Monday through Friday. What the hell is wrong with people? I am so tired of having to hold the hands of freaking adults.

I'm in my last year of a BSc degree, and I'm thinking I'm going to try and get a part-time job to help cover some bills. The last 2ish years I've either been travelling abroad (and thus not working) or working research jobs- obviously I'll put those down, but they're not exactly relevant to whatever waitressing/retail jobs I'd be looking for. The 2 years before that I was lifeguarding. I *do* have a couple of retail and food service jobs that I worked in High School- but that was 2005-2006. Can I put those down, or does that not even look relevant?
