is there organic, low fat, pesticide free health-food for pets?

because honestly....they should suffer like we do

Edit-o-matic: remember your pet considers you a food group...think about it

Edit-o-matic pt2; because i remember a pet rescue show where a crazy lady fed he 24 cats a VEGAN diet....because it was "good for them"..they were starving....rotting rice in bowls everywhere....

 So I mentioned yesterday I'm awfully queasy. Today, along with the nausea, I started feeling dizzy and my brain is currently trying to jackhammer it's  its way out my forehead.  The dizziness is so severe that everything spins when I move my eyes.  I ate a little today, had to use my inhaler twice, and for those of you who were concerned yesterday, yeah, I pooped today.

I've finally got enough check stubs to go to the Good Samaritan clinic on Monday, so I'm going to go see a doctor (hopefully they won't make me count my parents, because they each make 400$ a week on unemployment), but what the hell might be wrong?

What's your favourite soda? Mine is Green Apple Jones' Soda. A&W Root beer is a close second.

Did you know that Cat Cora is a lesbian (or at least bi but with a female life partner  no, nevermind, she's gay)? Her and her partner were both pregnant at the same time. I didn't really like her all that much, but after learning that, I find myself liking her more. For some reason, I adore the idea of two life partners pregnant at the same time.

Ugh. I went to refill my water pitcher and set it down by the sinks since I needed to use the restroom. People from my floor were all walking around (and a bunch of guys (our floor is all girls)) and taking near the entrances and one of them stole my water pitcher. I set it down to go pee and when I came out of the stall it was gone. 

Was I stupid to leave it sitting there by itself? YES

Should I talk to my RA or just go out to Target and buy myself a new one?

A couple of months ago, I found out my last boyfriend cheated on me. With another guy. Today, I found out he cheated on me with two guys. At different times during our relationship. We didn't have sex, so I'm not worried about STDs or anything. But it still makes me really mad. 

What was the last thing that made you mad? How mad were you? 

How easily do you lose your temper? How do you usually get it off your chest?

Uncommon Phobias

Do you have any uncommon phobias?

My answer: I don't know that it's uncommon, but I have a fear of looking in the mirror (Eisoptrophobia) ESPECIALLY when the room is somewhat dark. I probably watched Candyman too often when I was young, though this did start before the movie came out..

PS. Sorry if this has been asked recently, I do pay attention to TQC and I've gone back several entries, but I'm sure I miss plenty while I'm asleep... if it has, just ignore this post. :)

Wht would u do if some1 was lying 2 win a contest that u have workd ur ASS off 2 win?

so lets say you work for a job where they have a contest that says, whoever sells the most blenders* in the next 2 months gets a free blender.

*this is a 300 blender that you had already anticipated buying,this contest is fantastic bc if you win you can use that xmas money youve put away for a new laptop for school, or a trip to visit home for the first time in 3 years...

during this contest you work your ass off selling 7 in a month in a month and a half (that normally sells 1 or 2 a month), and youre pumped bc the closest competitor sold 2.  BUT once a fellow crew member (who you used to view as a close friend ) finds out youre going to win, they starts lying and telling everyone they've sold 7 as well and "cant even imagine anyone else winning." everyone knows this is a lie, so much so that a manager takes you aside and says (paraphrased) WTF?! Collapse )

What would you do if someone was lying in order to win a contest that you have worked your ASS off to win?

realizing illogical dreams after the fact

Tell me about a time where you had a dream that, during the dream, seemed perfectly logical, but when you woke up you realized something was off kilter.

For example I woke up this morning at the end of a dream, and in this dream Denzel Washington was trying to convince me to go in with him for the cost of a piano. We would leave it at his house but whenever I wanted to play it, we could move it to mine. He was explaining that it shouldn't be more than $1600 a person for the buy in. I was on the fence until the sales lady came out and told us it was only $950 total. But i looked closely at the "piano" (it was actually a dining room set) and could see why it was so cheap.  It was made of stainless steel and glass topped like a patio table. She ensured us it was good construction and came with 34 chairs. 34! We talked about how that meant we could play for a crowd and make beautiful music. So we bought the "piano" and talked excitedly about getting sheet music and practicing complex pieces.

Only after I woke up did I say "wtf, that wasn't a piano but a dining room table".

TQC, what the hell do I do here?

It's nine thirty in the morning and my dad wants to clean out my mom's bedroom (I've cleaned out some of it, but I haven't touched the material things in her closet). He also wants to do yardwork and laundry; I offered to help with the laundry and the cleaning out. I thought that he'd be over his boyfriend's house today, but he said that he has too much to do and can only see him for an hour. Then he went on about how he's tired of "all the shit [he] has to do" and how "[he's] tired of life." I offered to organize our mail today, which is in sore need of organization (seriously, it's all over every available surface and is the biggest issue with the house in my opinion) but he was like, "No, I'll do it, I'll do it, I just need time." The man works 60 hours a week and I'm unemployed (but job searching). Any advice on how to get him to loosen control a bit and let me help him out?

Have any of you tried oil pulling? Does it do anything or is it a load of shit?

I tried to do it this morning but I could only keep the oil in my mouth for 10 mins and for that entire time, I was trying not to puke. It was a generally unpleasant experience and I can't imagine doing that every single morning.

 Recently, there's been a department store ad on tv advertising a woman's military greatcoat. Does anyone know what store that is? I've looked at JC Penny's and Kohl's already.

Where could I find a nice wool greatcoat in plus sizes? I've looked on Igigi, Catherine's, Lane Bryant, and Fashion Bug.

Caramel or candied apples? What do you like on them? I prefer caramel apples with peanuts, but sometimes I want one of those fancy ones from Walmart that are covered with nuts, chocolate, caramel, and coconut.

It's my freshman year in high school (Yes, I know I'm a ~baby. Everyone here says that.) and in social study I must do 5 hours of community service per semester. I have applied for the library but there have already been 50+ applicants so if that doesn't work out;

What do you recommend for me to do?

I can't go back to my middle school and help out there because it is benefiting the teachers, apparently.

Do you get your household water from a commercial or municipal water company, rainwater, a well or some other source I haven't thought of?

I've never gone out before with the intention of drinking heavily. I'm planning to do that tonight with three of my girlfriends. We've never gone out drinking together before. We didn't really establish who's gonna be the sober one but my boyfriend said he'll pick us up if we need him to (He's 30 minutes away, at least).

I just found an old wallet with $400 cash in it!!!

If you've ever had your credit card information/debit information stolen, how much money was taken/spent? What kind of whacky purchases did the thief make? How did you find out about the theft? Apply these questions to anyone you know who this has happened to if it never has happened to you.

Last month, ~$80 was spent using my debit account. Most of it was spent on gas. $25 was spent at a Chicken Shack in Detroit (which is 40 or so minutes from my house). My bank called and said they'd placed a hold on my account due to suspect fraud. I was really surprised and impressed, because they caught it within 2 days and it wasn't very much money. I've heard stories where people have lost thousands and banks haven't believed it wasn't them.

For those of you with credit cards, how do you not go insane and buy everything? I've never had a credit card before and suddenly the idea that I have roughly $6,000 at my disposal is a little crazy (I'm on a joint account with my dad, which is how my credit line is so high). Do you have a set amount that you try to keep to every month? Or a certain number of purchases? For those of you with Discover card, are there any cool rewards programs you're a part of?

Say you date someone for 4-5 months and realize that you're madly in love with him/her. But before you started dating, they had made the decision to move overseas, really far away (in my case, Australia) and can't cancel it because he/she signed a 1-2 year contract for work.

If you didn't have any commitments at home (like a job or such), would you drop everything and move to be with him/her? Or alternatively, would you just live with the mindset that things are the way they are for a reason and just go on with life?

EDIT: OK, BUT what if I had a solid job lead here in the States but no job leads in Australia? If I'm gonna be there for a year or two, I'd need to do something to support myself (but something more than just waitress, etc).

have you ever had rain boots stuck on your legs? or any type of boot? or anything....?

when i was younger i had rain boots on and had been splashing around in a creek. a bunch of water got into my boots but i didn't worry much about it. well when i got home i couldn't get them off! i have pretty big calves so they were on pretty tight already. the water created some sort of suction or something. i had friends pull on them while i sat on a bed, but they wouldn't budge for a really long time and it hurt really bad. but they eventually came off.

1. You are doing a Bank Job. Your part in the crime is the getaway driver. (Don't worry, you have a souped-up muscle car to drive.) But like all getaway drivers, you need a getaway song to drive to for when the cops are chasing you down I-95 at a 120 miles an hour.

I'm looking to buy a truck.   Nothing too expensive or fancy, just your basic full size truck with a decent towing capacity.  (Think Ford F150, GMC Sierra, Dodge Ram, etc.).  

I've looked up studies and comparisons online, but I'm still undecided and would like some personal recommendations as well.  So, if you were looking to buy a truck, what make and model would you buy?  Are there any you would avoid?  

And FYI:  The only truck that is considered "off-limits" is the Nissan Titan.  Anything else is fair game. 

Thanks in advance!

Edit:  The Titan is off-limits because we know four people who own black Titans, including his hyper-competitive brother, my hyper-competitive brother,  and our "keeping up with the Joneses" neighbor.  My husband would just rather avoid the drama and politics (for lack of a better word) that would be sure to follow if we bought a Titan.


OK! So, I've always been pretty bleh with hair questions and I feel a bit ashamed for asking but here goes...

Should I stay in college or drop out?

-This would be the third time I had to leave school.
-I would be leaving for medical reasons
- I'm bipolar and I think my medications are wrong
- My current doctor isn't listening to me
- I feel as if I'm at risk for suicide
-This if the first time I've gone away from home
-I really don't want to give up
-I'm afraid of what everyone is going to say
- I left my last school mid semester to apply to schools on time and would be kind of embarrassed
-At this point I don't know what I'm doing with my life and what would make me happy but it feels like this isn't it

I think it comes down to: should I try to get through this, or go home and seek medical help?

Hey guys,

Stoneweek is coming up on the calendar (music festival + week of celebration of the founding of my uni). All the different uni residences design a shirt for themselves (boys and girls are different designs) but they're all based on a theme. This year's theme is 'turn up the heat'. I'm not sure if I should get one or not, I think the final design was "Arscott girls turn up the heat, so come on boys show us your meat" with a half naked chick in a fireman's hat holding a hose or something.

For the sake of the story, pretend you're a female in a relationship with a male.

Your boyfriend claims to have found a nude picture on you online and is quite upset, as he assumes you posted the picture. The picture is of a girl's nude torso with a bit of her hair showing and a piece of paper with today's date on it. Upon seeing the picture for yourself, you realize it isn't you, and actually doesn't look anything like you. There are several key things missing from the photo (specifically in my case, a medium sized tattoo, nail polish [I alllways have my nails painted], naval jewelry), and your boobs are a completely different size than those pictured. 

On a scale from 1 to 10, how mad are you? How hurt are you? How ______ are you?

Has a significant other ever found a picture they thought was you and confronted you about it? Have they ever found a picture that really was you and confronted you about it? Has it happened in reverse? (ie you found them). Am I just being stupid?

I'm at like a 7 for anger, but a 10 for hurt. I don't know why he automatically assumed it was me, especially because if he had taken even a second to actually LOOK at the picture, he would have realized it couldn't be me. It's bothersome that he apparently doesn't really know what I look like, either. I'm also kind of upset because he was like, "Her boobs look remarkably like yours" when they're much smaller than mine and sag more. :/
