Mad Men question

I just stumbled on an episode of Mad Men. I have never watched the show before,but the episode was about Peggy and Don working all night on an ad for suitcases. I really liked their dynamic and I thought the actors had a great chemistry. My question is..

If I were to buy past seasons of the show are those characters and their relationship there from the start or is it a new thing?

this one's for all the harry potter fans out there in tqc

does anyone else get seriously irritated that just about all the hp merch and stuff you see with a ravenclaw crest has a raven on it instead of an eagle?

i'm trying to get a tattoo of the ravenclaw crest, and the only reference photos i can find that don't have "ravenclaw" written across them have fucking ravens as the mascot, not eagles. 

it is immensely annoying. though i'm probably the only person who notices/gives a crap about little things like this.

If you have any deal breakers for potential romantic partners, do they apply to current SOs? For example, if you wouldn't consider dating a smoker, and then your non-smoker SO picks up the habit. Or if dating someone with radically different religious views is out of the question, and then your SO converts. Would you leave them? Or just deal with it?

Do you sing along at a concert? Do you like it when people do or do you find it annoying?

I don't mean when the band/singer goes "Yeah, you know this one" and invites you to sing along to a chorus or something.

I mean the whole actual song(and everything after that), especially if it's a slow song.

Like this:Collapse )

I like concerts/gis and the vibe of a concert/gig but things like this irks me if it carries on to a whole song. I can't hear her. If I'm in the crowd. all I'll hear is people around me singing unless the sound system is awesome. Guys, should I never go to a gig ever again because I'm boring? :(

/inspired by a debate I have with a girl on ohnotheydidnt who loves to sing along and thinks this is "beautiful".

1. You and a coworker have to sweep and mop after a day of constant, medium to heavy customer foot traffic.

which do you push for?

I would rather sweep
I would rather mop
I would rather do both (why? comments?)
I cannot do either (why? comments?)
I genuinely have no preference

2. I am kind of makeup illiterate - I like to play with fun paint but am ignorant of most of the subtleties of camouflage-style realistic makeup. I have a tinted moisturizer which I like a lot - do I use it like foundation? Should I put lots on, or be very sparing with it? Help?

I'm an idiot.

Okay, so.. this question is about a verizon phone i purchased off craigslist.
i know.. bad idea, haha.

I bought it tonight and it's a LG Voyager, it all seemed legit.
The phone is registered on another account, and i can call and text from it, the person said they'd switch it, but never did. I was scammed.
Is there ANY way of unregistering it so I can register it under my account? I've done a lot of searches and saw where you can clean the esn/meid somehow.. ?
I know I'm stupid for purchasing it off craigslist, I've learned my lesson, but is there any way to fix it? I know verizon couldn't. :\

thank you for your help! :x

Did you know what a Philosopher's Stone was before you read Harry Potter?

I was listening to radio a while back while they talked about HP... according to the announcer, the 'Sorcerer's Stone' title was the original, and the only reason it was called 'Philosopher's Stone' in Canada is because all of our rabid Christians (????) thought that sorcerers were too evil and scary for our children. I REALLY wanted to call in and call them all idiots, but alas, I was at work and am a pussy in real life anyways. XD

Comb my house for my PS2 and play Kingdom Hearts II and/or Final Fantasy for nine hours?
Finish re-reading The Deathly Hallows and then go force my errant tattoo artist to touch up my wrist tattoo like he said he would?

So, my roommate and I have been having a few issues. Not huge ones, but issues. The biggest one is as follows.

For the past few months, I'd wake up in the morning a few times a week and be basically in the midst of a light allergic reaction: nose stuffed, sneezing, eyes red and watery, etc. I had no idea why.

This month, I finally figured out what it was: her smoking. She doesn't smoke in the living room or kitchen or anything, but she does in her bedroom. However, it's still very easy to smell the smoke from my room when she's smoking. Each time she smokes, it's like I need to keep a box of tissues with me.

She's doing it in her own room, but I can't keep waking up like this. I feel bad though, because as I said, she's doing it in the privacy of her own room. It does make the whole apartment smell, though. Any idea how to approach this, or what I should say to her? Or should I just let it go and deal with it for the remaining five months of the lease?

crock pot help

I have a gift card for $35 that I want to use on (or toward) a crock pot. I've never had one before and I don't know what features are absolutely necessary. I don't have a large family, but I've also heard that it's okay to cook small dishes in a large (7 quart) crock pot.

Will you please recommend a crock pot to me?
Or, will you please share some crock pot advice?

Okay, because of all the confusion, I'm rewriting my entry.

My aunt and her husband inherited a lot of money. They are offering to pay for my dad to have gastric bypass surgery even though in all actuality, simple exercise and diet would help him (even his doctor said so because my dad isn't fat). My sister, who is my half-sister and not related to my dad, weighs about 600 pounds and not only does she really want the surgery but it could potentially save her life in so many ways. 

So what I'm asking is if it's wrong for me to ask my dad to talk to his sister about maybe letting my sister have the surgery instead of him. Sorry for any of the confusion. I tend to ramble when I'm emotional.

You step outside to retrieve the mail. You notice a man in a lime green track suit and a baseball hat rummaging through your mail. When he notices you approaching, he says "I'm...um...the mail inspector. I'll just be a minute longer, sir/madam". What do you say?

I'll need you to get a Post Office Box in order to receive my enormous suitcase of money. I'll happily set up the P.O. box for you, but they will need your credit card number and social security number to open the account.

say you left a shitty job a year or two ago. it was on good terms, you gave a two week notice, your boss tried to get you to stay, and when you declined, he let you know that if you needed a job, to come back. this was a grocery store. as i said, shitty job. something you never wanted to return to.
now you've been jobless for a while and you need money. would you go back to shitty job, and talk to boss to see if you could get shitty job back? or would you keep trying elsewhere for a less-shitty-job, but you don't know if you'll get one any time soon? you really did not want to return to shitty job.

Dyeing fabric with Rit Dye

I have a body stocking that got dyed blue (from nude) last halloween and ended up a little green. For this halloween, I want it to be sort of tan/brown.

I have a packet of Tan Rit Dye and I've already done the color remover process on it, which has left it a pretty bright yellow color.

My question is: Do you think I can dye over the yellow with the Tan dye and get a reasonably Tanish-brown color? Should I get another packets of color remover and try to get it as white as possible? ALSO, I have White-Wash (which I got on accident instead of color remover)... could that help get it back to its original color at all or would that just be a waste of time and dye?
i ain't into that!

this is going to be a dumb question but i don't even know how to google it.

so there's this quote:
"As for the dialogue, I have broken with tradition somewhat by not making my characters catechists who ask stupid questions in order to elicit clever replies. I have avoided the symmetrical, mathematical, constructed dialogue of French drama and let characters’ minds function irregularly, as they do in a real-life conversation, where no topic of discussion is exhausted entirely and one mind by chance finds a cog in another mind in which to engage."

but in my paper i only want to use:
"As for the dialogue, I have broken with tradition somewhat by not making my characters catechists who ask stupid questions in order to elicit clever replies. I have avoided the symmetrical, mathematical, constructed dialogue of French drama and let characters’ minds function irregularly, as they do in a real-life conversation, where no topic of discussion is exhausted entirely and one mind by chance finds a cog in another mind in which to engage."
and delete the unbolded part.

so how do i format that properly? i'm pretty sure it has to do with ellipses but i can't remember exactly. thanks tqc.

I want to be prepared when I have to go and do this stuff. I COULD call these places, but I'd much rather ask you guys (with hopes someone has had experience).

1.) I moved from Indiana to Missouri. I need to find a Dr. here (I know, go to my insurance company's website and find a Dr. that way). What I want to know is... how do I transfer all my files from one Dr. to another? Do I need to go to office of Dr. A, ask for them, and then bring them back here to Dr. B? Or can I just call Dr. A and tell them to send them to Dr. B? Can they be faxed. I need to go to the Dr. ASAP and the walk in clinic costs me $300 so I can't afford that.

2.) I have a car loan at a Credit Union in Indiana. I have a bank account here in Missouri (I got sick of ATM fees since the other bank doesn't exsist here). What do I need to do to get the loan at the new bank? What sort of information/papers/whatever will I need?

I just had a fitness test at my school a couple weeks ago and they said that for my age/height/whatever I'm about 30% body-fat. My gym teacher said I should lose 5-10lbs. :O
What is wrong with my school? Why are they telling me to be underweight? It just boggles my mind.

 TQC: Decide for me!

So, we've been looking for a "new" dining set for a while now, and I found one that I like for the most part, but I'm not sure if I should buy it or not.

The downside:
Its about an hour drive away from me.  
I don't have a truck (nor friends that have one), so I might have to rent one from Lowe's.
It has a glass top, but it is gorgeous otherwise.
My SO just spent 400 dollars a new fucking phone because he's an idiot, so we're cutting it really close until he gets paid next Friday.

The upside:
It has 8 chairs.  We're a family of 3, but when our families visit, its usually a full house of at least 10 people.
Its only $175.
I LOVE THE CHAIRS (well except the fabric design, but I can change that).

This semester, I'm working in a middle-school classroom. Because I'm not going to be with them next weekend (before Halloween), I'm bringing their Halloween goodie bags tomorrow.

The teacher suggested coming up with a game for them to play in order to "win" the bags (though I'll make it clear that everyone gets one), but all I'm coming up with is a sort of quick-draw Jeopardy game with the state capitals, which they're all learning.

So my friends and I decided at the last minute that we wanna be The Beets from Doug on halloween! I can't for the life of me find a cheap neon green trenchcoat anywhere though...everything I've found so far looks fancy and dark green (and is super expensive). Anybody know where I can get something like the guy on the far left?

Also, how the fuck am I supposed to make the little mohawk he has? Kaka.

Non USA-ians:
Do you learn much about American history in school?

I ask because it occurs to me that we learn a lot of European history here (at least where I went to school) but that's probably because we're pretty deeply tied to European history.

Just curious!

Halloween Drama

My friend is hosting a Halloween party next weekend. He's asked me not to bring my roommate. He and my roommate have a history of arguing with each other, and he has stated before he doesn't like her. I made a mistake and told her she should come with me to this party. In my defense, I've brought her to other parties at his house this year and it's been fine, but he really doesn't want her at his party on Halloween. Since I've already extended the invitation to her, how do I revoke it? Should I just tell her he doesn't want her there (which she knows, but she is incredibly stubborn) or should I make up an elaborate lie? What would you do, TQC?

(Forgive me if this doesn't make sense, I'm drunk.)

last month the electricity bill was way higher than anyone thought it would end up being. so my SO and I (who are living here with 2 other roommates) bought all new fluorescent bulbs since there were a lot of incandescent bulbs in the house. the house didn't decide to do this, my SO and I just thought it would be the best.
do you think it would be unreasonable to ask everyone to split the cost?

if you could have any car, right now, what would it be?

in the last month, what have you spent the most on?
