TQC, I'm a tad skittish. I'm alone in my apartment tonight and have the movie Se7en on my hard drive. I want to watch it but I don't want to be scared shitless when it's over.

Is it particularly scary/gruesome? Will I be afraid that a killer is going to get me?

TQC, I don't know who else to ask, so forgive me.

I have mono and it's making it hard to breathe, so my doctor put me on prednisone.  I just woke up at 1am because it was difficult for me to breathe while I was lying down (it's better while I'm sitting up, but it still kind of feels like I'm breathing through a straw).  I'm not supposed to take my next prednisone dose until tomorrow morning, but seeing as I'm having breathing problems right now, is it ok for me to take it now?  My last dose was around 4:00pm.

Again, I apologize, I have absolutely no idea who to talk to about these things at 1am, and suffocating on my own throat kind of frightens me. :(

Will you tell me about your last experience at the bar?

I went to the bar tonight and the first thing that happened is my boyfriend got hit on by a cougar and I watched from the sidelines giggling.

I am alittle drunk right now.

My old roommates neighbour lets his cats out all the time and for the most part the cats live, unfixed in the non heated shed. 

A few evenings ago my friend saw one of the kittens run underneath his porch. Earlier in the morning the next day he went to check that the kitten was gone and it wasn't. The kitten was covered in frost and had ice between its toes. He went to talk to the neighbours but they wont answer the door for him (as they're sketchy dealers).  He tried again later on and they told him to fuck off through the door.

My friend took the kitten to the vet. The kitten had frostbite, and was hungry but otherwise was okay. My friend paid to have the kitten get up to date on shots. My friend feels it's his duty to protect and house the cat permanently and is no longer trying to contact his neighbors about it.

Do you think his course of action is acceptable?
What would you do in this situation?

To be honest, I'm sure the neighbors do not care at all (or have even noticed) about the absence of the kitten. I could be wrong as I haven't spoken to them, but I doubt it.

ETA: I will probably be the one who ends up with the kitten as my friends dog is very aggressive towards her.

Will you name some TV shows that should be on DVD but aren't?

I'm currently watching an underrated, somewhat obscure cartoon called The PJ's. It was canceled almost ten years ago, and has been almost totally forgotten, so I can kind of understand why it's not on DVD, but at the same time it sucks that the only time i'll be able to see it is if I happen to wake up super early like right now.

did you know that if you tell yourself before you go to asleep that you will remember your dreams you probably will?

what was your last dream?

last night i woke up freaking out that a volcano was erupting near my house. then i woke up again this morning and my dream was about me working at a restaurant and having to leave early because i had to get ready for jousting and i was painting my face for it but i accidentally put blue paint on when i was supposed to put red.

I'm moving house!
Can you show me pictures of your bedroom? I want to decorate and make it lovely but we can't make many changes.
Should I get a goldfish?
I could either keep it in my room or our living room. I go away for a month for the holidays, and am not sure how i'd transport it back home. (if it survived that long)

to yoga or not to yoga

Yesterday was my first day back to the gym in over 3 months. I did a boot camp style class for about 50 minutes. I woke up this morning and all my muscles in my legs, butt, arms and abs are on fire!

I told my roommate I'd go with her to an hour long yoga class, but I'm so sore! Should I go to yoga or let my muscles rest?

DK/DC, what's your exercise activity of choice?


EDIT: I went, and feel pretty fabulous. Might not feel that way tomorrow, though...

Movies

I'm getting my sister a Blu-Ray player for her birthday and I want to give her a Blu-Ray movie first (then surprise her with the player when she tells me she doesn't have one).

I need some help brainstorming some movie ideas so...

1) What is your favorite movie produced within the last ten years?

2) What is your all time favorite movie ever?

What scares you? Doesn't matter how big or small.

The night terrors/sleep paralysis episodes I get. I just had one..... It was accompanied by 50 false awakenings.... I feel even worse waking up now. From thrashing myself everywhere or at least that's what it felt like.

I'm having a zombie tea party tonight as a joint birthday celebration with a friend. It's been planned since December and of the fifteen or so people who originally said they'd 'definitely' come (to my face, not on facebook), only four, FOUR, are actually going to be there. I know the friend I'm having the party with will have so many more friends turn up. I feel like such a loser, and have spent so much money on zombie make-up for everyone, not to mention making four batches of cupcakes last night which was also quite expensive.

I really just want to cancel and cry all night. How do I make myself cheer up and have a good time regardless?

What are things that make you feel like you're getting really old?

For me..
I used to be able to drink and really hold my liquor. I wouldn't feel sick the next morning unless I drank AT LEAST about 7 drinks in the night. There was also the occassion I drank 16 shots/mixed drinks/beers in the course of the night and didn't get sick.

Now I can drink no more than 3 drinks in the course of 3 hours without waking up with a massive headache and feeling like hell. This reminds me that I'm getting old.

What's your favorite Brat Pack (or other cheesy high school coming-of-age) movie?

Do you know anyone who had her period during her wedding/honeymoon?



Or if you hate all movies ever, tell me about the last little thing that made you happy?
I found a bag of Valentine's tootsie pops at Target last night that are ALL CHERRY - my favorites! :)

So I really want to take both Kung Fu and yoga classes but I can't seem to figure out a way to do afford both classes. I wish they had them together somewhere where I could just pay a monthly rate for both.
Anyway I really need to get into stretching and increase my flexibility because it's so poor, so I want to do yoga, BUT is there like a more of a workout yoga that will keep me active as well? Im trying to combine things I want, haha.

DK/DC?
Are you a teacher? Do you like teaching? I think I would hate it, and teachers I know hate it, but my boyfriend is thinking about becoming one and Im wondering if he will like it after the first few years.

Dear TQC,
I used some of my roommate's conditioner. I bought her a whole new bottle, and gave it to her, explaining I had used some of hers. She freaked out, and now won't talk to me.
I am very confused. Why the hell is this girl so attached to her conditioner?

Did you do anything special for your golden birthday? If you haven't had y
ours yet, are you going to do anything out of the ordinary?

ETA: a golden birthday is when your age matches your date of birth, like turning 16 on March 16th. I'm surprised this isn't as common as I thought.

i see guys check me out, smile at me, call me babe, all that shit. but i never get asked out. they never seem interested. i know no one can REALLY answer it but what is it? why don't i get asked out? i'm nice, i'm out going, i flirt.. do you think there can just be something inherent about someone that screams, "DON'T DATE THEM."?

Is using old technology by choice a "hipster" thing to do? Is it cool? Uncool? Like using a Walkman instead of an iPod. A few years ago after my Discman broke I used my old Walkman before finally buying an iPod. Was I cool? I thought I was cool.

My surname is an unusual one that is regularly mispelt. I want to make a new formal email address for job applications and I know most people just use their name, but I'm not sure it would be a good idea for me. It's probably memorable but it's likely to be typed in wrong.

Should I use a name that's not my own instead, knowing that it might raise questions at interviews?

I rescued a pregnant cat.  She delivered her kittens today and two of them had poop (meconium) in their sacs, around the cords etc ... is this normal? I assume Mama is safe from it since the sacs dont break internally like human babies do.

I just watched Black Swan. It was okay, but I have serious motion sickness from all the spinning and stuff.

For those of you who watched the movie, what did you think of it?

For those of you who haven't, do you ever get motion sickness from movies? I got really sick at the anti-gravity hotel scene in Inception :(

Why is my amaryllis dying? It made three big long leaves, but they flopped over and two of them broke, and the one surviving one is floating at about a 45 degree angle. In order to have it in the sun I have to have it right by the sliding glass door and that's cold.

If it was a housewarming gift, and it dies, does that mean my apartment will be cursed?

I started a new job at the end of August and immediately bonded with a guy I worked with. We're the same age and started around the same time. There was a lot of blatant flirting that never went anywhere because of self-esteem issues on my part. We were pretty tight and spent a lot of time talking and goofing off instead of working. Despite all of that, we never did anything together outside of work. He got fired a few weeks ago and I didn't get to see him before they canned him. I got his number from a mutual friend at work and called him the weekend after he got fired and left a message. I didn't hear back from him and called him again a week or so later and talked to him briefly. He said he was at his new job and would call me back. That was last Thursday, I think. I called him tonight but didn't get an answer. My question to you, dear TQCers, is: how much longer do I keep trying to make an effort to stay in touch? I feel like I've given him enough time and space to get over being fired. Is he just being an anti-social baby or should I be doing something different? Or should I just give up altogether?

Edit: Forgot to mention he has a couple of my movies. Regardless of the friendship lasting, I WANT MY STUFF BACK.

Ok guys you're good at this. Can you figure out this song I heard? It was on the University of Pittsburgh's radio statio. Rock song with a guy singing and at one point it sounds like he's singing ABERDEEEEEEEEEN but he totally isn't (or maybe he is). I couldn't understand any word in the song so I have nothing to google.

What song did I hear??


Edit: You've done it again TQC! The song actually is CALLED "Aberdeen". I didn't hear it wrong after all! It's by Cage The Elephant.

TQC - tonight I attempted to dye my dark hair red, and it didn't really work very well.  It took to the roots of my hair, but not the bits that had been previously dyed dark, leaving me with that horrid dark hair with gingery roots look popular with so many very common looking people with bad taste.  Not cool. 

My question; can I just buy some box hairdye from a supermarket tomorrow and dye all my hair dark brown again?  Will it come out more evenly?  What hairdye would you suggest?

(I usually go to the hair dressers to dye my hair, but I am travelling at the moment, so have no time/am extremely skint).

The problem is that I started on November 2nd and no matter how many little calendars I draw out I cannot figure out what the ending and beginning days the month separations should be.
