Hey guys, look, it's another "I'm stupid tell me what to do with my hair" question!

So I know I'm going to get my hair cut, but I'm not sure how. I've got two main questions:

1. Should I get bangs? (And if yes, what kind?)

2. Should I just have a couple inches trimmed off or should I chop it off to shoulder length?

Do you think before you act? Does your emotions get in the way of things?

I make a mental note to think before I act, and I usually do. But if I'm feeling a strong emotion, I find myself doing incredibly stupid things I tend to regret later on.

have you ever jokingly told someone to do something and then they actually did it?

one time my friend texted me about how this kid was being a douche and talking shit, and i replied "lol so hit him", and he texted me back a few minutes later to say he actually had hit him. : /

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?)

Keys!

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?

Glasses

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?

A Fake Bake Incident

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?

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?

Roles

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
17(17.7%)
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)
16(16.7%)
Person was a lot fatter than the picture indicated
8(8.3%)
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
30(31.2%)
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
22(22.9%)
The fact they showed up gets him/her a lot of points. I can't be disappointed with anything.
3(3.1%)

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?

Continue on with the date. I may be wrong about my first impressions
57(60.0%)
Stand him/her up. I don't want to go in and show my face
12(12.6%)
Go in like it was a date, but have it set up that my friend calls me 10 minutes into it and tells me there's an emergency and I have to leave right away
19(20.0%)
Meet him/her as planned. I'm sure I regarding everything about me
6(6.3%)
Other
1(1.1%)

Say you do go in with the date. Which of the following would be real deal breakers if it was discovered were not true?

Your date has been married before. Twice. Is divorced though and has been single for a year and a half
32(14.1%)
Date has a daughter, age 9. Currently with a babysitter
47(20.7%)
Date doesn't have an interesting job that's demanding. Instead, works double shifts stocking shelves at a supermarket just to make ends meet
34(15.0%)
Date isn't intelligent. Didn't even graduate high school (barely earned a GED a couple years later) and dislikes reading
76(33.5%)
Date isn't attractive. Is just average looking at best. The picture he/she sent you was of their sibling who looks a lot like them, except with way better face and body
25(11.0%)
Honestly, I wouldn't judge. I'm no catch myself. We'll just start over from square one and see where it goes from there

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.

What would you do in my situation?

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...

 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

hair products

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!

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.)

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 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.

 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?

Tomorrow I have to make a "How-To" speech and I've chosen to do mine on how to make a toga. Are there any important points I should make sure to touch upon?

DK/DC: What sorts of things do you do before you speak in public to make yourself less nervous?

What are you guys doing tonight?
What are you procrastinating?

I am d/ling a k-drama that I am super excited about and watching Dancing With the Stars. I am procrastinating making these potato and zucchini pancakes that I need to make for dinner.

DK/DC - What kind of socks do you wear? The super low kind, the 1/4 kind or the long kind?

EDIT: Don't the socks fall down around your heels when you walk? Am I the only person this happens to? I hate socks.

Do you know where I can find a cheap corset? Preferably $25 or less.

I'm in the ensemble for a production of Rocky Horror and we're costuming ourselves - the only guidelines we have are that it has to be red/black.

 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.

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?

poetry terminology

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?

Teh pics

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?
