My roommate just met my friend and is interested in him, so asked me to describe the friend.

If your friends were asked this about you, what do you think they'd say to sum you up in a few sentences?

If you've experience sleep paralysis, can you tell me about the first time it happened, and how long it took you to find out the term for it?

I was sleeping, obviously, and I couldn't move or speak or open my eyes. I felt something moving around in my room, and I thought it was my mom. Then I felt this heavy weight on my back, and there was a gargoyle-like demon [I could see him in my mind from an out-of-body view] hissing and laughing in my ear as I tried as hard as I could to speak. Eventually I just drifted back to sleep. I googled it as soon as I woke up, because it freaked me the hell out.

Does anyone in this lovely community have any suggestion on how I can turn my brain off so I can get some sleep? It's almost 1:00 a.m. and I need to get up at 7:00 I just can't seem to shut off all the stuff going on in my head. I even have a mild prescription sleep medication that I took. I'm a world-class worrier and I don't know how to stop.

I napped far too long today, so now I can't sleep. I have to wake up in 4.5 hours to get out the door on time. If I go to sleep, I may not wake up for my alarm (this happened last week), and I'm fairly good at staying up with little to no sleep in my system with the help of copious amounts of nicotine and caffeine, but I'll probably get cranky later on in the day. I DO have a two hour commute to school during which I can nap most of the time.
What's the shortest amount of sleep you can exist on?
Should I sleep or stay up?

I'm really in the mood for a movie that has a super twist to it, and/or has some sort of event happen that's emotionally involving, but complicated/contradicting and makes one debate which view they take on the situation. (Is that too specific?) Any recommendations come to mind? :D

Poop post

When was the last time you sharted? I tried curry for the first time on Thursday, and early Friday morning, I had gas then mass.

What's your funniest poop story? 

A girl I worked with had digestion issues and got really backed up one week. She started chowing down on laxatives and one day she came back from lunch in a panic to tell our boss she had to go home and change because she'd pooped her pants and because she was wearing a thong, it was running down her pants.

The best thing was bossman backing away slowly.



Do you enjoy toilet humour? No matter my mood, just hearing the word fart or poot or the sounds will make me laugh.

What would be the worst time to shart? I'm thinking during sex. Farting is embarrassing enough, but accidentally pooping...yikes.

So, TQC, this summer, my legs got bitten up something fierce by mosquitoes and such. My legs look gross, and I scar really easily and it takes me forever to heal. :(

What would be the best thing to sort of help this along, and get my legs to look not-as-gross as quickly as possible? Like, is there any special lotion? Or, like, neosporin? Or just straight-up Vitamin E? WHAT DO YOU RECOMMEND?

HALP ME PLEASE TQC, BECAUSE MY LEGS LOOK GROSS AND I AM GETTING REALLY BORED OF WEARING TIGHTS ALL THE DAMNED TIME. >:(

attention people who have used travelocity....

i just bought plane tickets last night. I've never used travelocity before until yesterday (used expedia in the past). They didn't give me anything to print! They did send me an email with online check-in codes. Do i do that from home before i leave for the airport? do i use the airport's website? am i getting real tickets mailed to me? what the hell is the process??

We're moving to Herefordshire in the UK about halfway through November, and we'll be living there for at least a couple of years.

Force of habit insists I start up a vegie patch in the new place. The seasons will be backwards - we're currently in south-western Australia - but I'm a foodie and I like sourcing my own vegies when I can, so I suppose I'm going to have to.

Someone who know the climate and conditions...what does well in the area?

I'm only guessing, but if I prep the ground over December...February would be the best time to start planting, over the end of winter? What should I put in first?

(If you have a significant other) What famous person(s) does your SO find attractive/have a crush on? Do you think this person(s) is attractive?

Have you ever considered changing your diet? For example, if you are a meat eater, becoming vegetarian. If you are vegetarian, becoming vegan. For vegans, going raw vegan, etc.

If you have ever worked retail, what do you think the best thing is? The worst?

When coming home from work/school/being out all day, do you change clothes? Or just change when it's time to sleep/shower?

TQC, I've got a bunch of shit I've never worn. It does not fit me now, and it didn't fit when I bought it like 2 years ago. It could fit in a few months. I would donate the stuff to my local SPCA's thrift shop. I have 10 cardigans, one peacoat, and 2 pairs of pants I want to donate. 11 out of the 13 items still have tags on them.

Should I donate them, or keep them a while longer in hopes that they will fit me one day? Or should I do something entirely different with them?

If you have the power to travel back in time for up to 10 minutes (good for correcting mistakes or stopping awful things from happening) and the power to see up to 10 minutes into the future. All you have to do to activate this power is to make out with a complete stranger immediately. The longer you suck face with them, the longer you can see/alter time, up to 10 minutes. The longer you wait to activate the power, you may miss the particular minute you wish to travel to so expediency is definitely in your interest and maybe giving no explanation for your sudden affections toward the stranger may be deemed most efficient. How often would you use this power?

I'm visiting Korea for the first time and consequently meeting my Korean family for the first time as well. I've already gotten gifts for most everyone, but I'm stuck on what to get a female cousin in her late 20s. Does anyone have any ideas? She isn't married and doesn't have any children. I also need to get something for my grandmother who is in her late 80s. I've asked my mom for suggestions (it's her family) but she's been extremely unhelpful, basically just telling me to "get what I think is best."

ETA I would like to keep the gifts around $20.

Have you ever taken a math class where you were expected to write, in words, what you were doing next to what you were doing?

Like, if you were factoring, you would write "factoring" next to it?

I am, and it sucks. I got an 80% on a quiz, but I have to re-take it because I didn't state at the top of the page that I was going to solve a quadratic equation using the quadratic equation even though those were the instructions and that's what I did.

If you get by on very little sleep, how do you do it? How many hours of sleep do you get? How do you get through the day on little sleep? Do you still stay very busy and get a lot done?

How busy are you? How do you stay motivated and on top of everything, and not waste time?

Basically, teach me your time management methods! I want to get a lot more done in the day than I do, and not need as much sleep. I feel like I waste so much time!

Does anyone owe you a lot of money? How much? How long have they owed you it?

Where I work, I have one week of paid vacation left. My original plan was to take it in the week of exams where I would be booking off most of the week anyway, so I could at least get a little bit of money before Christmas. Turns out I'm only going to have two exams, both for my lower-level courses. I'm thinking that the chances of them falling within a couple of days of each other are fairly slim. My two other courses both have 20-page term papers instead of exams. I'm also moving in October, when I have a reading week.

So, here's the question: should I change my vacation week (if they let me, of course)? I could still take it during my exam period and maybe get a couple of days off after my last exam to relax and prepare for Christmas. Or I could take it during my reading week and have plenty of time to move/unpack and work on school things without worrying about work. Or I could take it before my big papers are due so I have lots of time to work on those.

Today, while at my volunteer job, I walked past one of my supervisors. She was sniffling and rubbing her eyes, and I thought she was just having allergy issues. Her boss was talking to her, asking if she "needed a ride," and my supervisor replied that her sister was going to come pick her up.

I thought that was kind of a weird exchange, and then I later found out that something "really bad" happened to her, but I don't know what. I'm going to assume a relative or close friend of hers is either very sick or passed away.

Do you think it would be bad or inappropriate if I sent her an e-mail asking if she's OK and telling her that if she needed me to cover anything for her at work, I'd be more than happy to do it? If it's OK, how would I start that e-mail? Saying something like, "Hey, I heard something bad happened to you," doesn't sound right at all.

I have a really good relationship with her, I think she thinks me more of like a coworker than a subordinate. But...I dunno, at the same time, I feel like I'm being really...intrusive.

I don't know, I just suck at trying to be helpful when my friends are feeling really upset. How well do you handle situations like that?

Emotionally unhealthy advice sought.

TQC, let's say that you have someone in your family who you do not particularly love who emotionally abuses you every time they get the slightest bit upset (everything they do to hurt you is really your fault, flat-out lying about terrible things they've done, etc), and for several very involved and complicated reasons, you must deal with this person a very regular (almost daily) basis. They refuse to acknowledge that they do these awful things and accuse you of being "too sensitive" to the way they behave.  Cutting them out or interacting with them less is not an option.

How do you make the crazy, awful things they say and do not bother you anymore without confronting them?

Settle an argument for me, TQC:

Last weekend, I was at my parent's house and forgot my sunglasses there. I didn't have time during the week to go there and get them, and knew I would be back this past Saturday and would pick them up.

After leaving my parent's house, my mom called me to tell me I left my sunglasses there. She specifically asked me if I left them for my sister to have/use. I said no.

I got there Saturday, and after saying hello and all that, I ask for my sunglasses. My sis said that they broke when she was wearing them the day before. According to my sister, mom never told her not to wear them.

I want my sister (who is 27, by the way, not a child) to replace them. She said that it was an accident that they broke and she shouldn't need to.

1. Should I be mad at her?
2. Should she replace them?

Dear TQC,

A few nights ago, I had a really bothersome dream. It wasn't quite a nightmare, it just seemed so amazingly surreal.
In this dream, my recently deceased aunt was still alive and came to visit me and my family. Her and my grandma were also very close with each other and got along very well.
It doesn't sound that weird, but it is when you consider these details:
1. Something really bad happened between my grandma and this aunt of mine many years ago and they didn't get along at all until the day she died. Even after her death my grandma still has yet to let go of that contempt.
2. It's odd that I would have a dream about this aunt in the first place because I wasn't even really close with her nor did her death have much of an emotional effect on me. I hadn't even seen her in 8 years and I went through the 5 stages of grief in an hour. I really don't understand why I would have a dream about her seeing that I never even had dreams about my grandpa after he died(which took a far bigger emotional toll on me). '
3. When I woke up after having this dream.......her daughter calls.

I really can't shake off this feeling that something significant is going to happen in my family soon because of this dream. What do you think this could mean?

Also, care to elaborate on odd dreams you've had? Did they end up having a relation to something that happened in your life later on?

1. Would you get an older, well established couple that is going into both of their second marriages a wedding gift? The groom is close family.

2. If you would, what would you get this guy (because you know little about her)?

He likes things very simple, and high end. He doesn't eat out often, but when he does it's only one or two restaurants at the other end of the state, so a gift card would be difficult and time consuming. He is retired and wealthy, so you won't really be able to get him something he can't get himself. He is religious, Catholic (both of them are heavily involved in the church). She is not going to change her last name, so you'd need to avoid something monogrammed, and you don't know how she has her home decorated, so some type of knick nack is out as well.

I normally don't ask gifty questions, but we're very stuck here. :/

ETA: They also do not drink. And if any of you know where I can purchase a personality, lemme know :p

To pierce, or not to pierce?

Pierced TQCers,

I have always wanted a side lip piercing. I've refrained from getting one because I'm afraid of gum/tooth damage.

My birthday is coming up in a couple months and I want to treat myself...but I want to make sure I'm not going to have regrets. I have TMJ (bruxism, teeth grinding, etc) and wear a mouthguard at night.

So, lip piercing + TMJ = horrible idea? Or should I not let it stop me? Obviously I plan on taking good care of it, as I do all of my piercings. I'm just not sure if TMJ would possibly slow the healing process?

And yes, I will ask a piercer about all of this if I do decide to go through with it. I just like hearing what TQC has to say.

What kind of vitamins and supplements do you take, if any? Why or why not? If there's a specific brand you have loyalty to, feel free to share it. If you're wary of vitamins in general (in pill form, that is), tell us!






My answer: I take Wegman's Children's chewable vitamins with iron. I'm only getting about 50--83% of most of the vitamins I need in pill form, but it's the only vitamin with iron that doesn't make me feel sick to my stomach, so I stick with it. Plus, I eat a pretty balanced diet, so I figure it's better than not taking anything. I also occasionally take GABA for anxiety.
QB SACK!

I hope this is coherent?

Cell phone companies, I heavily assume, have upkeep and maintenance costs associated with their network. Does each individual phone call I make cost my cell company money to provide? Or do they only give me x number of minutes for my money so that I don't put too much of a strain on the system or something?
