Hey TQC,

Coffee ground scrubs. Caffiene lotions. Spa treatments. Celluless System.

Too many options, and I am assuming most do not work.

Have any of you successfully diminished the site of cellulite? Even a little?
If so, what did you use? and where did you have the cellulite?

So, back in March, I went hiking and my shoes ended up giving me blood blisters or something underneath both my big toenails. As of right now, it seems like my toenails have grown out enough, but the dried blood (or whatever the heck it is) is now at the end of my toenail, right underneath, like where you cut. Every time I do cut my toenails, those toenails are hard to cut through and it's really..kind of gross. There's like, a soft fleshy part underneath too, like maybe where it was healing or something? Ugh I don't know.

Anyway, am I even making sense/anyone know what I'm talking about?
Should I go get it checked out? And if so, should I go to a regular doctor, or a podiatrist? Or is a podiatrist more about..the foot itself and not related to toenails? lol

I recently bought a Clone A Willy kit and cloned my boyfriends cock.

Would it be creepy to make copies and sell them to my friends?

We all work (or have worked) in the sex industry, pretty much, and he would know about it. I usually ask my mumsie for advice for everything but this time my mum said even making a rubber copy of his cock was creepy, lmao.

I recently got a baby hamster and it is a jerk and really enjoys biting me, thus I have about five small cuts on my right hand.

I would like to get my nails done tomorrow (tips if anyone cares), should I be worried at all about the cuts? Three are almost healed. Would they not do my nails because of the cuts? Am I just being overly paranoid?

When you're tossing and turning in the night, do you wake up and find that what felt like a night of being awake all the time was actually just you waking up several times?

I have a hideous, hideous cold, and have to go and do work experience today. Any tips to make me feel better?

Need some help

I'm a girl and there is a guy that I work with that I have a crush on. I'd been interested in him for a while, but I have been a little cold toward him until after I broke up with my ex.

As a result, he's responded pretty well and we hang out with each other much more while at work. Long story short, I feel that he's moving in, but with extreme caution. That's probably for two reasons: A) He probably realizes that I broke up with a girl and is not sure if I'm interested in men and B) I might have been giving him mixed signals.

So, my question is: How do you signal to a guy that you're clearly interested in him (but in a normal way).

I usually date girls and make the first move, so this is like foreign territory to me! Also, feel free to ask for clarification since I didn't want to make this post tl;dr.

1) What are your most recent obsessions?

Cute underwear, particularly hipster ones with lettering and/or lace.. I've been on a two-week shopping spree.

2) This Christmas I made shortbread tarts. The recipe required that the shortbread dough be baked in a greased mini-muffin tin (so no baking cup thingies). Although I greased well and waited overnight so they could cool in the fridge, half of them still crumbled when I tried to remove them from the tin. Should I use baking cups next time?

My grandma's home sick from her senior center because she's got chills and generally is feeling like crap. She has Alzheimers, so she won't really drink water on her own, and I've got to give her lunch. What should I make for her? She probably won't be very hungry, and we've got chicken salad, so I might just give her a bit of that on toast with some tea. What do you like to eat when you're feverish?

Problem is, my wish list is looking a bit meagre, so I need some recommendations. Some books I am ordering are Infinite Jest by David Foster Wallace, House of Leaves by Mark Z. Danielewski and Never Let Me Go by Kazuo Ishiguro, if that helps. So, what would be your recommendation(s)?

QUESTION 1: I just made cheese sticks. But I didn't have any breading ingredients or fry oil, so I instead just wrapped chunks of cheese and seasoning in won ton wrappers and then baked them. Will they taste delicious or weird?

QUESTION 2: I really enjoy celebrity autobiographies. But I'm not sure which one to go for next. Will you recommend a good celeb autobiography?
Biographies are okay, but my favorite part about the autobiographies is that most celebs write them in order to show people how normal and down to earth they are, but then they spend 3 pages trying to explain each of their celebrity delusions. I think it's hilarious.

Hi TQC! Has anyone here been hurt in a car accident? (preferably single car)

My SO and i flipped our car on the highway the other day (I was a passenger). We both aren't really injured but I hurt my hand and its been getting worse. Due to having to fly yesterday i am going to see a Dr. about it today. I dont really know what to do though-I use my hands in my job (typing) so its important to me nothing is wrong, but im struggling to type quickly/grip things. The only thing im aware I could do if it becomes an injury would be to sue my SO, which obviously im not going to do...does anyone who's been in this situation know what I should do for the future? Document it through a professional? Write down my experience and keep a personal journal? Go to a doctor regularly (how regularly? when things change?)?

I know it could just go away in a couple days but Ive been told by multiple people to see a doctor after the crash, and I just want to prep in case i need documentation. :)
I'll ask my doctor when I see them but im curious about everyones opinions.

Will you tell me about the car accidents you have been in?

Does anyone know of a therapist in the NYC area (or Long Island) that deals effectively with abuse? I've had a million therapists and I know some of them can suck, so I'd like a recommendation before I pick one off the internet. I have a pretty long history of abuse, but of most concern is a relationship that I had with someone a few years ago who has basically terrorized me since. I want to date again, but I know that I need to learn healthy relationship stuff and I actually think this guy exacerbated my PTSD because now when I think of going on a date with anyone I just hear him screaming in my head. It's troubling. I no longer have any contact with him but I still feel the panic and fear if I think about it. Or any other guys..

Any resources you can recommend would be appreciated.

I have $400 to spend on whatever I want and have decided I need an ipod because mine died a few months ago. I plan on starting to exercise again after my 4-6 week post pregnancy is over.

Anyway, what is a good one to get for someone who just wants it for music purposes? I'm out of the ipod loop because I had my last one for 5+ years. I don't need to play games or do anything fancy. My last one was a 5th generation classic 30 gb (I think).  It didn't hold all my music, but I'm not sure I need one as big as a 160gb. I have about 7000 songs in my itunes and a handful of videos.

How many songs are on your ipod/mp3 player?
Do you use music while you exercise? Silence? Something else? 

Reality of it is...?

I would sit around and watch a lot of war movies with some military friends and they would always say Hollywood makes it look so easy. I was wondering if people with a Spy occupation ever sit around and watch Spy movies, shaking the head and saying the same thing.

"They make it look too easy!!! Thats not how you do it!!"

I wonder if Spies ever watch movies at all?

What do you think of compliments like "Your hair looks good today!"? Do they make you think you didn't look good yesterday? Do you compliment people on their daily appearance?

I got "You look really cute today!" from a sales associate today and it startled me because my first thought was that I had met her before, so she knew how I had looked on a different day. I spent a moment trying to figure out if I knew her from somewhere else since I'd never been in the store before, before I realized she was not actually comparing anything X3

Does "plaster" refer to just band-aids or to any kind of wound dressing? Or am I completely off, like milk 3 weeks past its expiration date? okay, so only slightly off, like 2 days past the expiration date.

I've gotten really into herbs for medicinal treatment lately. I still use ibuprofen and similar drugs, but I've had some good luck with herbal teas and such as of late. So:

Do you use any herbal treatments or drink herbal teas for something? What, if you don't mind? Does it work?

Does anyone here use any herbs to treat crippling period cramps? My cramps are so bad that on the first day, I usually have to take an extra strength Vicodin. However, I've been experimenting with raspberry leaves and cramp bark, and so far they're pretty effective. I've found a ton of herbs that are also said to help so I'm curious what others use!

I twisted my knee last week and I'm on crutches. Should I go to a New Year's Eve party with a bunch of people I don't know very well?

I'm already a little shy and I don't want people to look at me funny since I'm crippled.  Also, safety concerns. It's healing up well but I don't want to make it worse if I have an accident. :( On the other hand, people will see my crutches and probably want to talk to me to find out what's wrong with my leg.

Do you like Pokemon?

--If so, what region is your favorite and why?

Johto. It has the majority of my favorite flamboyant and/or awesome characters. Like Will, Eusine, Morty, and Lance. ALSO. It had some female characters I actually liked in design and/or personality, including; Jasmine, Clair, and Karen. This region also created dark Pokemon, one of my favorite types. Umbreon happens to be my favorite non-legendary Pokemon. Also, the legendary dogs were the best designed out of all the legendary trios, in my opinion, with Suicune being my favorite. I have more reasons but I won't ramble on~

If you don't like Pokemon or don't care:

Have you ever been connected to any Facebook drama at all? Have you ever felt, during or after the drama, like Facebook should be nuked from orbit?

My brother's soon-to-be ex-wife posted a passive-aggressive ... note, I guess, about how he was 'in Vegas with his mistress on [the wife's] birthday'. She had defriended him, so he only found out when a RL friend of his told him. I looked up to her so much, you guys. She was like the big sis I always wanted...and now I just want my brother okay at the end of this. Ugh.

Please help me understand this

How does one know their own husband cheated on them, got another woman pregnant and right after the news... want a child with him again? Then to top it off. The mistress has a daughter and now the woman expects that her unborn child HAS to be a girl too. She wont settle for anything else. Help me understand this?

My boyfriend is house-sitting my family's house while we're away on vacation. Without my knowledge, he invited his friend over to play video games on my brother's PS3. Then he texted me to tell me that his friend is going to come over, like 20 minutes before the guy arrives. He's done this twice now.

I texted him, "I feel a little uncomfortable that 1) you didn't tell me about this until after the fact and 2) I've only met him ONCE."

His reply: "Okay.. you're welcome for letting me house sit -_-"

Am I justified for feeling annoyed? Or am I just freaking out over nothing?

ETA: We're in our mid-late 20s, we both graduated college, we are in a serious relationship and I'm not perturbed that he invited his friend over -- it's that he didn't tell me about it until after the fact. Just a heads up beforehand would have been cool.

Also, whatever. It's done, he's at my house and they're playing Call of Duty. Only thing left to do is enjoy the rest of my vacation. I really should just stop refreshing this post for new comments. ;)

"This is for the Christian guys out there, don’t emotionally rape a sister, play with her heart and tell her you are just her brother or friend. That is BS. Man up. You either pursue a woman of God because she is God’s precious creation, or you don’t try touching it at all, or play with their hearts emotionally, unless you are willing to be up front and clear with your intentions and the direction of the relationship from the start. Emotional rape is as painful to a woman as physical rape. Women are emotional beings and their hearts are not to be played with. Protect your sisters heart. "
