My bf seems to really loves me but has zero time for me. Its long distance and he doesn't even say I love you once in a while anymore. Is it good to just give him space and when he says he'll talk try to make it good?
I've met him once and then everything changed. He use to do so much and take good time. Bother with me and be there for me. Now nothing but telling me to go away and not even one nice message here and there.
I'm new to relationships so I don't have a clue if this is right. He's just too busy...I'm lost.
EDIT: He says the computer makes it more stressful and he says It'll be way better if we get face to face for good.
Are you the type of person who wears shorts in the winter when there's snow on the ground / freezing outside?
If so, why?
Emergency Dentists - does anyone here have experiences with them? Care to share with me?
I have pretty significant dental phobia stemming from a really terrible root canal a few years ago. I cracked a tooth on...Monday, I guess?, but today it shifted and now I'm in extreme pain and I'm considering either a)going to an emergency dentist or b)begging my regular dentist for an appt. on Monday.
a) I don't even know what going to an emergency dentist entails, or if my insurance covers it. But, my extreme pain will be gone quicker.
b) I like my regular dentist now, but I have anxiety about seeing him because I know he'll give me a hard time for not coming in sooner. Anxiety + depression + extreme fear of dentists is not a fun combo.
So TQC, what would you recommend? Quicker relief at the hand of a (possibly inept) stranger? Or toughing it out and being in pain through the Superbowl tomorrow so that I can go to familiar and nice (but also anxiety inducing) dentist on Monday?
TQC. We are having TQC awards!
Who do you want to nominate for an award? What would the award be?
For those of you with Netflix on your game systems (especially the PS3's) Have you noticed anything weird lately about it?
When I logged into it (up until like a week ago) it took me to the main page. It would show me newest releases and let browse a bunch of different categories. It was simple and I liked it. Now when I log in it will only let me do searches and won't take me back to the main menu. It won't let me add DVD's to my DVD queue and the search part is screwed up. It's off on the left hand side and half of the letters are cut off. It doesn't give me the same menu as it did before, showing the newest releases and so on.
My roommate thinks maybe they did an update? If so, it sucks. If not, how do I fix this?? I really liked Netflix before, but now i'm so frustrated with it I do not want to renew this month.

I find laughter to be the best therapy sometimes. What hilarious movies and other comedy do you guys like to watch when you want your sides to split?
So I sort of wasn't looking where I was going as I walked home drunk, and now have a massively grazed hand.
It hurts. How can I stop it hurting?
1.) Why do you think my cat likes to sleep in the bathroom sink?
Because she is a freak who likes getting water dripped on her. I think. It is truly a mystery.
2.) Which ice cream should I eat: Reese's or Double Chocolate Chip? They are both from Breyer's, and the DCC one is light.
I'm leaning toward Reese's, but if I knew for sure, I wouldn't have to ask.
3.) Do you like the different flavoured Tootsie Rolls, or just the chocolate ones (if you like Tootsie Rolls at all)?
I like the cherry and vanilla ones. And the chocolate ones.
4.) Do you collect anything? If so, what do you collect?
I collect sheep.
5.) Do you prefer gloves or mittens?
Gloves, although mittens keep your hands warmer because your fingers share body heat. Or something.
It's 4am. I need to be up at 10am.
How do I make myself sleepy?
Dk/dc/sort your own damn sleeping patterns out: What other tabs do you have open apart from TQC?
My son is going on a tour with a school group, arranged by a travel agency. They sent me a bill for the first installment. It has a place to fill in your credit card number and sign and a blank for "amount enclosed." But it does not have a return envelope, so if I want to mail it I get to locate an envelope and a stamp...and also there is no place on their website to pay online.
Of course I'm going to call them up and read them the credit card number over the phone, but I'm kind of surprised that a place handling this much $ is so clumsy in how they collect it. Do travel agencies normally not take online payments?
Can you recommend a good study abroad program? I'd like to study in Rome fall 2011.

Have you ever had to choose between two lovers?
How did it turn out? Why did you choose the way you did? Do you think you made the right decision?
Apparently, we had a problem with gunk in our pipes. The problem has been taken care of, but the last time we ran the dishwasher was before we had maintenance check it out. There is a small amount of standing water in the bottom of the dishwasher. Do you think it would be ok if we ran the dishwasher or is this a sign something else is still fucked up?
I (well, my boyfriend mostly) just made a breakfast dish with scrambled egg, chorizo, bell peppers, mushrooms, onions, garlic, and various spices. I think we made too much for just the two of us, though. Can I store it in the fridge? I don't usually eat eggs so I'm not aware of the storage time after cooking.
What tastes the best the next day?
You have a second interview scheduled for Thursday. Inclement weather happens and they call to cancel, saying they'll try to reschedule on Friday or Saturday. Sunday comes without a call and it's superbowl Sunday in a state big on sports. Do you call Monday afternoon to inquire about the status of your interview? If no, how long do you wait for them to contact you?

If you're not watching the Superbowl today, what are you doing instead?
Every time I order food, or pick up a take-out order, and am about to sit down and enjoy it, I suddenly have to fucking pee. Not just a little, either, like.. I GOTTA GO NOW. It's really annoying. Do you think it's cause I'm so excited?

Which of 3 things that we have control and choice over has the worst effect on a) ourselves, and b) the planet we inhabit generally? Over-eating (and its related health and social implications), smoking (and its related and social implications) and driving fossil-fuelled cars (and its health and social implications)? (You can be excused the last one if you don't live within reasonable walking distance from work, schools or shops, but what is 'reasonable' will always be debatable).
Edit: Okay, as no-one yet has actually answered what was a serious question (on a site devoted to questions) let me re-word b) even though there is an 'and' in there. Which of the 3 things in a) have the worst effect on b). And yes, we don't have a choice to be here as we are currently on earth writing things on the internet (that part is understood.)
Do you like Durian?
Inspired by the Durian Cake I had last night and how nice it was.
Cooking peoples of TQC, what is your favorite way to make chili?
I am making chili for the Superbowl today, but I'm not sure how I want to do it. I have a usual way (simple, just a bunch of beans, tomatoes, and beef), but I'm trying to make something low on vegetables (my boyfriend is a baby) but still has a lot of flavor.
Alternatively, what did you have for dinner last night?
Are you watching Puppy Bowl today?

So, like, in trashy romance novels, they always refer to semen as "seed". Isn't it more analogous to pollen? Why don't they call it "pollen"?? Is that less manly-sounding than "seed"?

Hi Teak Yuicy,
So me and my family have already planned a trip to San Francisco in March (my Spring Break), but my mom would also like to go somewhere for her 1 week vacation in July. I suggested San Diego (went there last year for the first time but we had very little money and were only there for 2 days so we didn't see a whole lot) but my mom sees that as more of a ~weekend place~ for some reason. So, where do you think we should go for her vacation?
We likely can't afford international travel, nor do we even have passports, so it has to be in the US.
We're not big on nature, we greatly prefer exploring cities.
Really good food.
Loads of cultural and historical offerings.
Vibrant Street life.
A few places we've considered: Seattle, Portland and New Orleans.
ETA: THANKS FOR THE SUGGESTIONS EVERYONE. So I'm still keeping Seattle, Portland, and NOLA on that list, but I'll consider Austin and San Juan as well. I'm mostly leaning towards Seattle at the moment though.
I'm completely alone at my house right now, smack dab in the middle of nowhere and it's creepy dark outside. Should I watch scary movies and get all paranoid-y or watch Disney movies and ignore the creeps?
What's your favourite genre of movie?
What was the last movie you saw? In theatres, Tangled. On tv, Bill and Ted's Excellent Adventure.
What was the last movie to scare you? I haven't really been truly scared of a movie since I saw Candyman when I was four, but IT creeped me out.
Is there a big difference between Americans and Canadians? What is it?
Why is this place dead right now?
Will other people post things?
What time is it for you guys right now?
Do you watch that show? Does it ever make you feel like humanity/society is shit, afterwards?
Have you ever had a What Would You Do moment, and do you feel you acted appropriately?
I had one today, when the guy delivering my Chinese food told me there was a lady lying in the snow who couldn't get up, down the street. So I ran out the door in my PJs and helped her get up and walk down the sidewalk, since she decided to still head to the store anyway. This wasn't that heroic, but I keep hoping to rescue someone some day.
I've been badgered into signing up for an account on StumbleUpon, and their 16-character username limit is proving to make figuring out a username difficult! Which one do you like best:
Say you own a business, which is located in a large building. You rent the part of the building that your business is located in and there are apartments in the second story of the building. After a large snowstorm, you personally pay for someone to come and clear the parking spots along the side of the road that your customers usually use for parking. The tenants of the apartments park in the spaces that you have paid to have cleared (they do not have their own parking lot or any kind of designated parking spaces). Is there legally anything you can do about this?
My bosses are making a huge stink about this and I pretty much want to tell them just to GTFOver it.
Will you tell me who you voted for in the last US presidential election? Why did you vote for that candidate? If you didn't vote, why not?
If you're not from the US, did you vote in your last election?
My boyfriend and I live together at my parent's house right now. His mom hates me with a passion, but for absolutely no reason (or at least no legitimate reason, she won't tell him what her reasoning is). Today, he went over there for dinner since his brother is visiting from California. He asked her tonight why she hated me and she replied: "she and her family have betrayed me and I will never love her." A little harsh considering my family certainly hasn't done anything wrong and neither have I. At first I thought it was because he was living here but she's been super harsh and hating me for long before that.
TQC, what is her problem?
Do I even try to have a relationship with her anymore, or should I just say fuck it after that comment she made?
Please tell me some of you out there have bad relationships with your in-laws or SO's parents? D:
What usually settles you down when you're restless?
I just saw my first episode of Glee, and there was zombies on it.
I'm convinced it's that zombie series people keep talking about
When's George Romero going to put singing zombie linebackers into his movies?
Any PC video games you guys love that help eat up time and get you sucked in?
Recommend me to some in-ear headphones?
Dr. Dre sells for brand name, Bose are too ugly,
Something that's customizable and has quality sound...
what kind of headsets do you use?
What are some documentaries about health and medicine?
I just watched one called Under Our Skin about Lyme disease and it was really eye-opening.
HAPPY BIRTHDAY! You are having a party and conveniently, all the members of TQC happen to live within twenty minutes of you!
Who will you invite? (Numbers are entirely up to you, it's your party after all...)
What's the most you'd spend on a purse/bag?
On a pair of sunglasses?
On a pair of jeans?
What was the last text you got?
Is there currently anything or anyone you are jealous of?
I'm jealous that my mom is in Vegas having fun. I used to live there and I want to go back!
Do you like pieces of candy in your ice cream or milkshake? What about bubble-gum?
I feel like it's an obstacle!
Do you wear fur?
Do you judge people who do?
Does it matter how the fur was obtained - ie. given as a gift, bought new, bought second hand?
I have some very angry vegan friends who abuse everyone for eating meat, but are okay with wearing fur that they buy second hand because it's "recycling", and they think if the animal has to die then it at least shouldn't go to waste, and by wearing the second hand fur they are not actively or financially supporting the fur trade.
why do they let rapists play football?
is foosball the devil?
are you drunk? i am. don't tell cory and topanga.
Have you ever deliberately used an offensive term in a TQC post to start drama? How did it go?
What does it mean when someone says "I make you grow feathers every time we talk?" Yes, this just happened to me.
I'm drunk. Are you?
I'm half asleep. I have 3 one page essays due for my online classes tomorrow. Should I go to bed now and write them tomorrow and maybe skip my morning class or tough it out and half ass them right now?
Have you ever told someone to suck your jewish person orifice? How did it go?
Where is your favorite place to get gifs? I am in desperate need of a gif collection that is currently nonexistent.
DK/DC? What was the last thing you drank/ate? (pizza/soda for me, \o/)
I work at a furniture store. We're more or less an outlet. Nothing we sell comes with a waranty unless you buy it seperatly. When we first opened (8 years ago) we didn't allow ANY returns. Since then we've given customers 7 days, with the stipulations that accessories (wall art, lamps, knick-naks, mattress pad/covers, etc) CANNOT be returned. We explain it to you and have you sign a from stating you understand this.
Today a customer came in and tried to return a mattress pad. Nope. She said, and I quote, "So what? You expected me to READ the signs?" my jaw dropped. Nah, we just put them up ALL OVER THE STORE (and state the return policy on the bottom of every reciept) for shit and giggles.
What's the last thing that caused you to go "Really?"
