how many keychains are on your keyring? how many keys?
when was the last time you got locked out of somewhere because you forgot your keys? what did you do?
me: i have two normal keychains, one that lights up, and one bottle opener. i have three little barcode keytag things and 7 keys. oh, and last time i got locked out, what should have been a 2 hour date turned into a 6 hour date. whoops.
Is anyone else ridiculously excited about the airing of Dexter season 5 in a couple of hours (7 hours, I believe, unless I suck at time zones)? Care to share any theories of what's going to happen this season?
I'm extremely excited. I've been waiting for this since...well, the season 4 finale 9 and a half months ago. I don't watch much tv so I overcompensate when it comes to my enthusiasm for Dexter.
For those who don't care/don't like Dexter: How could you not like Dexter?
My friend recently developed a thyroid condition that made one of her eyes bulge. She was feeling really ugly and upset about it, so I sent her a card. Being that I've had wonky eyes since birth, I told her that she was beautiful and we could have wonky eyes together. She has a great sense of humor.
I haven't heard from her about the card. I have this horrible feeling that I hurt her feelings- Should I send an email to make sure she's not upset? (Am I overthinking this?)
One thing we all pretty much have in common is we carry keys, don't know anyone that just has a single key. Most of us keep them on a ring of some sort.
How many keys do you have on you most of the time? Do you know, offhand, whatthey all goto? Are there any keys amongst those that don't goto something you still have/use? Why would you keep an inactive key?
Okay so I need a better product to clean my glasses. The one I use leaves streaks on the lenses and it's fucking with my eyes. What's a good product, or even home remedy, that I can use to clean my glasses without leaving streaks or this weird blurry film that doesn't clean off?
I'm super pale, but I want to be tan. I brought some sunless lotion promising to turn a real nice olive-y colour, not orange. And no streaking. Well, I've not really got streaking but am definitely patchy and yeah... It's good in some places and TERRIBLE in others.
So... Do I hide indoors and be thankful for the cold weather so I can bundle up, or apply another layer and gamble for a quick fix?
...be willing to be known as a famous celebrity homewrecker? John Travolta steps onto the curb near where you are and asks what time it is. You reply but the paparazzi takes the picture of the exchange and this happens the same day his wife leaves him. The tabloids go nuts, assuming the two of you are having an affair and your picture is plastered on every cover as a homewrecking slut. Not until 2 months later does the truth come out
..get a boob job, upgrading your cup size to an E? You have to have the new humungous tits for 2 months at least (though you can have them forever if you want) and you can't tell anyone about the money otherwise you don't get it. You'll have to lie and give another answer why you suddenly felt like getting massive cans
..eat nothing but McDonalds' big macs for a full month? Whenever you're hungry, you have to eat at the Golden Arches and you must get a Big Mac. No eating outside the clown's house.and no other menu items
...ignore your pet's cries for affection for 2 months? Whenver your cat/dog jumps into your lap, you have to push it off. Whenever it wants to be petted, you have to ignore it. It can't come onto your bed and as a matter of fact you can't touch your pet for any reason or give it any attention. It'll have to think you no longer love it for the next 60 days
I should call the pharmacist, but I figure someone here might have experienced the same since it's just a question about birth control pills. I threw away the leaflet that comes with the pack, and I can't find it online.
I'm currently on the pill (Sprintec 28 Day) and a new week for me starts on Sunday. Saturday night I took my Sunday pill instead of my Saturday pill my mistake. I did not take the Sunday pill last night. Do I take the Monday and Saturday tonight, or should I just skip the Saturday pill all together?
Not interested in this first question: Anyone here indulging in the silly bands craze?
I just got a minor surgery near my lady parts. It hurts and somehow I've psychologically convinced myself that it'll hurt when I pee, so now I need to pee and CAN'T. How the hell do I get my body to relax and PEE?
I received a letter for an organization soliciting for a donation.
It was signed.
Jon Smith, B.A., M.Ed.
I understand if one has really done well in their life and received a special honour, or a special designation for work:
M.D. C.A. L.P.N. R.N. Ph.D. Q.C./K.C. (Commonwealth Countries use it as a distinction for important Lawyers) C.M. (Order of Canada) IBEW (International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers)(electricians) AMP (Accredited Mortgage Professionals)(mortgage brokers) A.C.L.S. (Association of Canadian Land Surveyors)
How tacky do you think it is to include a Bachelors of Arts or even a Masters after one's name on an official letter?
Due to a store fuck up I had to drop a bridesmaid, She is totally understanding and cool with it. But I still want her to be a aprt of the wedding. What other roles are there in a bridal party that I can give her?
Also my other questions. I have a 11 year old brother that will be the only kid there and I really want him to a part of it, he is too young to be a groomsmen and I dont need/want a ringbearer, what other roles are there for kids?
Also what other walk up songs have been used for weddings? I DON'T want "Here comes the bride" or whatever it is but I would no idea what other people have used.
Thank you for your help, I have used google but I have no found anything as such and I dont know what roles are actually still useful. Also I am pretty wedding stupid...So I have no idea of things are meant to be done.
Is caffeine a bad idea when you're sick? I usually have a cup of coffee in the morning, but I wasn't craving it at all today. I had to fight falling asleep during class, napped after I got home, and now I'm just feeling exhausted and a bit ill. I feel like a little caffeine might help perk me up, since my body is used to having some every day, but idk if I should. My housemate was sick with something that made him extremely tired over the weekend.
What would tqc do?
What's for lunch today? My housemate pities me and is making me an omelet.

Let's say that you're single and have started to use a dating site. You screen through the batches of undesirables and the person who really catches your attention is this one attractive individual, age 31. No kids, never married, has an interesting job that's demanding (movie editor) and just doesn't get needed to meet people the normal way. You exchange emails and chat online/text/whatever and this person is very funny, very clever, and seems very intelligent. You finally agree to meet this person face-to-face (he/she isn't super computer savvy and isn't familiar with skype at all). Your date will be wearing a blue shirt, black pants and biker boots (private joke you two share). You show up at the restaurant, but feel the need to use caution. You look through the window and you see someone matching that description sitting at a table. Something about this person isn't as advertised. Which of the following would be the biggest disappointment if it weren't accurate?
They seemed older than 31 (at least 40). You're guessing it was an old picture you were sent
Didn't seem to be have the interesting job they said they did (the shirt says 'Jay's Auto' with a name tag and fresh oil stains)
Person was a lot fatter than the picture indicated
Person isn't even that attractive. You suspect some photoshop and some 'MySpace angles' went into the picture you saw. From some angles this person looks really creepy
You question your date's sense of humor, as the blue shirt is a t-shirt with 'Two and a Half Men' on it, and you see him flipping through a joke book, as if memorizing jokes to tell you when you arrive
The fact they showed up gets him/her a lot of points. I can't be disappointed with anything.
Let's say you figured out that your date isn't attractive, is older than stated, doesn't have a cool job, isn't that attractive and may not be funny at all. You get this from seeing him inside the window. What do you do now?
This morning I did Bikram yoga for the first time. I pretty much hated it and barely survived. Getting to finally leave that room after 90 minutes made me feel infinitely better, but now I'm left wondering if I should keep at it or just chalk it up to something that is not right for me.
When you try something for the first time and intensely dislike it, do you try again? What is something that you gave up with after the first time? What is something that you stuck with and ended up enjoying?
I went in for an interview last week at a company I would love to work for, got a call back earlier today saying that they'd offer me a temp to permanent position if all goes well. About an hour later, I get a call from another company in the same industry that I'd also love to work for asking me to come in for an interview.
Would you take the offer from company A and then also interview for company B? Obviously I wouldn't tell company A that I'm interviewing with company B...

You win a free annual flight pass with a nudist airline. You can travel anywhere the airline goes (which is to every major country) anytime you want as often as you want. However, no clothes are allowed inside the plane. There's plastic sheeting on every seat. How often would you travel using this annual pass?
Crouch adjacent to a table (so as to enable the 'triangle of life" to occur should the roof collapse)
Stand next to the window so that I can easily jump out should the doorway get blocked
Run out of the building into the middle of the street
Get on knees and start praying loudly
Go back to sleep. Whatever is supposed to happen will happen and you can't change fate
Immedately call 911
Close and open my eyes and attempt to disbelieve. Surely it's my imagination or some kind of mental illusion due to having consumed too much caffeine or something
Bang on the walls of the neighbor's apartment and yell at them to turn the stereo down. It's vibrating the floor and walls
Turn the volume of the tv up to drown out the sounds of rumbling
You're driving through the desert to get to Las Vegas. It's pouring rain. A real deluge. You've got the wipers on at max speed and it still can't move fast enough to catch all the drops. It's effin MISERABLE out there. There's almost no other cars out there. Just you. It's about 3pm when you see a figure on the side of the road, jacket hoisted over his/her head, trying to protect themself from the weather. When this person sees you he/she raises their thumb. They look pathetic and so unhappy with their situation. Which of the following hitchhikers would you consider giving rides to?
So me and 3 friends are going to New Orleans in a few weeks. We're looking for a cheap hotel near the French Quarter that isn't super fancy, but also isn't a crackhouse. I was just wondering if you had any personal recommendations outside of what Expedia or Priceline can tell me? Have you stayed there before? Where? In a hostel?
Also, what should we make sure we do when we're there? One of my friends has been before, but it's our first time for the rest of us. Thanks!!
My grandmother died a week and a half ago and it's her birthday today. My mother and two of my aunts are going out to dinner at a Chinese restaurant to celebrate.
Should I go with them?
Pros: - get to celebrate my grandmother's birthday - get to spend time with family - get some time away from my crazy father/my house - food will be tasty
Cons: - I have an issue with eating too much at restaurants and I'm trying to watch my diet - Chinese food around here is very heavy/rich/bad for you - I am starting to get a cold - I have homework which I may or may not do if I stay home
My hair is becoming thinner and I'm getting a bald spot on the right side of my head. I changed hair products about three times this year (I started with herbal essences, then moved to panteene, then to Avon) and I'm really not satisfied with how my hair is turning out because I'm losing a lot of hair, and having dandruff problems.
What shampoo do you guys recommend for kinky/curly/dry hair? I heard panteene was a bad choice so I got rid of that, but I'm just trying to look around. Thanks!
Have you ever had a doctor "break up" with you? why?
How would you feel/what would you do if you received a break up letter from your dentist that included the following line "your enthusiasm for good dental care seems to stop short when it comes to the appointed hour for treatment"?
I know there are a lot of cat owners here, so hopefully someone will have an answer...
I start a new job in a week where I'll be traveling away from home (California) for two months. I have a cat and a dog and recently flew my dog to my mother's house (Ohio) and stayed home for two weeks for a little vacation before work. I just got a call from my two roommates, who are watching my cat and are going to continue watching him for the two months I'm gone, telling me that he cries from 5AM to late into the night and wont stop. They say he meows, "talks", and just generally pesters everyone nonstop. I doubt its nonstop, but I can see him being a pest. However, He is NOT the kind of annoying they claim he is when I'm there, so when they demanded an answer on what to do, I really couldn't give them one.
My question is... what the heck is going on? How do I make this stop? Why is he so upset? I mean, I guess I'm just looking for kitty-smart people to give me an insight into why my cat might turn into another critter once I leave. I assume its separation anxiety. I've had him for 5 years, and this is a first... I've left him while away on work before. What can I do to stop this, or help this?
(thanks so much :) I'm going to try stringing up play toys all over my room and giving him toys that will hopefully be entertaining enough to keep him happy.)
How good are you at studying? How long do/did you usually have to study to do well on a big test?
I'm an obsessive and meticulous studier, but I get distracted easily and have to take frequent breaks. Today was my first history test since May 2008, and between Friday and Sunday I put in a total of 20 hours. My brain feels numb.

You're driving through the desert. It's a very hot day (110 degrees), around noon, and you're about 100 miles from the Vegas and you've seen no other car for about an hour. It's flat desert with no shade, but it's nice and cool in your car. You pass an overheated car on the side of the road. About 100 feet past the car there's a hitchhiker, carrying a sign. Which of the following people would you pick up?
1. TQCers, especially American TQCers, have you heard about all the Commonwealth Games drama happening in India?
2. Did anyone watch last night's episode of Brothers & Sisters? thoughts?
3. And finally, since we learned about contraception today, what kind of contraception do you use? Does it surprise you that out of medicine, nursing, midwifery and pharmacy, pharmacy students get the most lecture hours regarding contraception? (14 hours vs about 2 hours, at my school anyway)
I'm kind of an eccentric person and like making crazy things in my spare time. A while ago I saw the washington post's annual peep contest (http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/gallery/2010/03/29/GA2010032903934.html) , so I'm going to do that, and I also did a creative cups thing for breast cancer. Are there any wacky creative type contests that you're aware of that I could look into? I'm trying to fill up my calendar and be single and busy for a year.
I'm starting to seriously look at universities in Germany to apply for, and i had always read that in addition to my diploma, i needed a 1300 on the SAT. I got a 1930, so i thought i was more than fine and didn't have take it more than the one time. But i just found out yesterday that i need a 1300 with the writing section excluded. So what is my score without that? 1280. Aggghhh!!!!
My relationship of seven years with my high school sweetheart just ended today. We both have been unhappy with the relationship for quite a while. This was going to happen sooner or later but still, my heart is broken
What are some things I could do to help ease this pain until time can mend it?
So, I'm making dinner. I was about to make some green beans (frozen, cause i'm lazy) and I saw that there were small white spots on them. Is this bad? Or just the result of them being in the freezer for a month or so?
DK/DC: Which tqc-er would you invite to dinner? What would you serve? What would you do afterward *wink wink*
When you use the stall at a public restroom, do you use it like you normally would your home toilet? Do you cover the seat with tp/seat covers? Do you sit on the edge of it to minimize contact? Do you hover? Do you pee all over the seat and then have explosive diarrhea all over the walls?
Why are you feeling pretty awesome? I was at the cafe today and this girl I knew like ten years ago recognised me and we started chatting and exchanged emails. She worked at the library where I got dropped off everyday and she was my only friend for a couple of years until she went to college. It was really awesome and I can't believe she recognised me. One of the reasons I was even at the cafe was because she took me to go get my first mocha one day when I was at the library and now I have a habit.
Now I'm sad because I just got an email saying that xmarks is shutting down. : /
Are there any similar extensions for Chrome that are free and saves passwords?
Is there anything that's making your awesome kinda dull?
I'm also kinda bummed because I went to the clinic today and while I only have to pay 10% (YAY!), I won't get seen until mid November, which is going to do me a fat lot of good if I can't breathe now. I do not want to go back to the hospital.
How do I explain to someone that I don't want to meet up at bars without having to say the real reason why? I need something that will last. So she won't just suggest a bar next week or next month or whatever.
ETA: I'm sorry, I'm sorry, I should have mentioned she owns (her husband owns really) the bar she wants to go to and I kind of met her at the bar and used to go to it occasionally. I feel weird saying I hate bars.
Super frustrated right now. All of the girls in my house are taking showers around the same time that i'm taking mine. My shower must be punctual, since I have to apply my acne cream at a certain time. how do i convince these girls to gtfo?
For this assignment will you please post a picture of something, anything, and tell me how the person/place/thing is symbolic to you? If it isn't, just make something uppppp. The deeper and more metaphorical, the better.
Do you have one group friends where everyone knows each other, or do you have several groups of friends that pretty much don't interact with one another? And if you have more than one group, do you ever feel like introducing them to each other?
Is there a term for when a period breaks up the middle of a line in a poem?
I know enjambment, which is when a logical/grammatical sense is carried over to the next line, but I'm not sure if there's a term for a period in the middle of a line and I'm having trouble looking it up. My brains. They are tired.
Anyone have any idea what I'm talking about?
dk/dc can you write me a haiku about your day?
ETA: you guys are all brilliant haiku writers and you're providing me with an EXCELLENT distraction from my paper! :)
I'm trying to install a font I downloaded from a website. I'm on the newest macbook, but when I go to the fonts book, it has the font I downloaded listed under "users" instead of "downloaded". How do I change this?
What's a good photo upload site that I can use to post to random_pictures that won't delete my NSFW pictures and ban me? I used to post all the time but then ImageShack banned me (I'm not posting tons of hardcore pr0n or anything) and screw Photobucket, and I've been throwing random crap in a folder for months and it's going to burst.
I have a jumpsuit (no it's not fashion fail, it's a costume) in two sizes. The XS fits perfectly everywhere, except the torso is too short. The S is too big everywhere. I know absolutely nothing about altering clothes - which size should I keep to get altered? Can too small clothes be made bigger? Or is that just impossible? I'm worried that if I alter the S the design will get distorted since it needs so many adjustments.
My essay is finished, and it is due tomorrow, but I can't decide on a title. The essay is about a Sherlock Holmes story and how their appearance based judgments (or lack thereof) are used to criticize class bias. So what should my title be?
