Since graduating from college, I've noticed that whenever I meet somebody new, one of the very first questions they ask is "what do you do?", meaning "what's your job?". Is this how it is in other cities, or do people define themselves by their occupations more in DC than anywhere else?

So in September I will go to Israel with my bf, and meet his parents. His father is not thrilled about this because I am a gay and a goy, a gay-goy if you will.

What do I do to make him love me (without becoming straight or Jewish)?

Are you an extrovert or an introvert?

Do you prefer to be friends with introverts or extroverts?

I'm introverted, but while extroverts tire me out/intimidate me I ultimately get bored hanging out with most introverts.

Do you know about your MBTI type? Do you think it's bullshit or gold?

If I scratch my arm or bump into something it hurts like someone just punched me full force. I just banged my arm on my window sill and I know there's something to be a giant bruise there tomorrow.

Is anyone else like this? Is it just a low tolerance for pain?


and.or.

Can we have another "My animal is an asshole because..." post? because my cat just went ninja on me while I was trying to put the sheets on my bed. He needs his nails cut and needless to say, he got his nails stuck IN MY HAND wtf.

dog gone it

Anyone want a dog?

In all seriousness. Craigslist isn't helping.

I need someone in the northeast area who owns a house, has a yard, doesn't have *little* kids, and is out of college. Props to anyone who isn't going to use him as a fighting dog.

He was in my backyard one morning, about a month ago, and we're really trying to find the perfect, most awesome forever home ever.

He weighs 75-80 lbs and is some sort of bulldog (not pittbull) mix.

Big love bug.

So, TCQr's....if anyone out there can give a dog a home, it would be great.
We live in WNY, but I'm willing to travel for the right person.

MUST RESIST

I've been eating right lately, but I can't seem to contain my inner fattie. After 5pm until I go to bed, I have unbelievably severe cravings for Very Bad Foods. I feel like an addict! I'll be jonsin' for ice cream/Mountain Dew/Kit-Kat/whatever SO BAD I can't think straight and I actually start to salivate heavily. I've tried eating high fibre veggies and stuff, but that just makes my brain scream, "THIS IS NOT A DELICIOUS SNACK. THIS IS BROCCOLI. I HATE YOU!" I think this is more severe than the Average Joe, to be honest.

Other than chain myself to the wall, what can I do to curb my nocturnal mind-numbing urges to eat processed garbage?

Gripfast boots. Did the company that made that brand(or was that brand) go out of business? Can't find anything online except stores that sell them, not something like a company website.

edit:I think they're made by/the brand is under TUK.

So nevermind :)

I am breaking up with my boyfriend of five years, who is emotionally abusive and all that jazz, and while I am really upset about throwing away five years of my life, my hysterics are only furthered when I realise I won't get to see the cat we got together anymore.

Is there a protocol for this? Like, if we break up, can I request to be able to see the cat? Because I genuinely worry he won't be able to take care of him, since that's what I did all the time. I fed and cleaned up after him. He's like my kid now.

Alternatively, even though this means living with the parents, who already have two cats, can I get another cat? :( I'm so sad about the cat thing.

But I am going to get the tattoo he told me I couldn't get! So hurrah for independence! What did you do after a big break up to make you feel human again?

OK, seriously...we can transplant pretty much any other organ from one person to the next right?

I am making fried rice (and now, in the midst of my question, answering someone else's rice question from earlier). My roomie moved out suddenly last month to chase a dream, and left a lot of frozen veggies in the freezer. I am putting some of them in my fried rice, but there will be a ton left over.  (Asparagus, peas, green beans, broccoli, and then a 'winter veggies mix') 

What on earth can I do with all the frozen veggies?

copyright question

My boyfriend is interested in drafting beer and selling it. If we were to name one Augustouts Gloop, would we have any sort of copyright infringement to worry about? Or would we be free to use the name as we like?

Can anyone help me out?

 Do any of you happen to know the name of the following condition - 

It is a small problem with your eyes where it seems like there are little black speckles or dots swimming in your eye. Apparently you are safe if the black speckles are moving and you should go to a doctor if they stop moving. 

I think that is about all the information I have on it and I cannot for the life of me remember the name of the condition. 

Can anyone help me out?, it's driving me mad. 

Thanks.

Name change

Has anyone here changed their name/added someting to their existing name/know someone who has? Are you/they happy about it or do you/they regret it?

accents

This is a question for Americans, but if you're not American and still feel like answering, feel free to do so, but please indicate where you're from.

Which accents do you dislike most? Which are the most unpleasant to hear? The most difficult to understand?

And which do you like most? Which do you think are elegant or sexy or whatever else you find pleasing?

Update: The question is for Americans because my wife and I are foreigners living in the US and we're settling an argument about what Americans think of foreign accents. No need to start a flame, folks :)

How good are you at expressing yourself/ communicating your ideas clearly?
Through what medium are you best at expressing yourself? (written words, speaking, drawing, singing, etc etc etc)?
I hope I'm wording this in a way that makes sense, lol
colours are nice

hair questions are annoying but i don't like madradhair :(

for those of you who have naturally dark hair and have bleached the entire thing to dye it a lighter shade - how badly did it damage your hair? my hair is naturally almost black and i want to bleach it all and dye it a medium brown shade. my hair is i guess a little bit dry, it's naturally quite thick and wavy. it's dry enough that i wash it about every 3 or 4 days and it looks nicest on the 2nd or 3rd day. i recently got some highlights and even the bleach from that dryed out my hair a bit so i'm a little worried.

Operating systems?

What operating system is your computer running right now?

Why did you choose it?

What do you love about it? What do you hate/dislike about it?


I'm running Windows 7 Home :D

I picked it because I've been using Windows all my life (used Windows 95 when I was a kid).

I love everything about Windows 7. The only thing I don't like so much is that I can't change my theme as fully as I could with Windows XP. I could make my desktop look TOOOTALLY different, but with Windows 7 all I can do is change the wallpaper, the taskbar colour, and I can make the taskbar smaller. That's it. :/

If you felt like a manager at work was constantly picking on you would you tell someone of a higher authority about it? Or would you just ignore it and try to do your work as best as you can?

There's a manager at my work who is always in my hair about EVERYTHING. She is only rude to me and it's to the point where it has nothing to do with my performance. I try to avoid her at all costs. I've gotten pretty used to it but the thought of working with her still makes me uneasy sometimes. What would you do?!

porking!

I've got a few pork chops lying around in my fridge that I should cook tonight for dinner. What should I do with them? I don't really like to bake them because they always come out dry.

Do you like applesauce on your pork chops? What's the appeal? I just don't get it.

What other porky goodness do you like to consume on a fairly regular basis?

Wrong number voicemail.

TQC, this morning I got a very bizzare wrong number voicemail to my Google Voice number. It was by a perky-sounding young woman with a local number and no traces of being trashed or anything. It was as follows -

""Hi, we're leaving the brain and going to the first floor where the Indians are. It's now 11:20. Bye!"

WHAT DOES THIS MEAN, TQC? I sent a text back to the number, but she didn't answer :(

Pancakes!

I know it's quite a bit too late for Shrove Tuesday/Pancake Day, but right now I am in the mood for pancakes! I've got this one awesome recipe that I've used for YEARS (came from an OLD book from the 50's that used to belong to my great-grandmother) and I'm in the mood for something new.

Post your favorite pancake recipe? Preferably one without blueberries/chocolate chips, etc, because I haven't got any.

A question for those who have an ipad with 3G or are knowledgeable about them...

I'm planning on buying an ipad with my tax refund money, but I'm not sure whether to get one with just wifi or wifi and 3G capability. I've never used a 3G device (my cell phone does have 3G capability, but I don't have internet on it, so 3G isn't being used) and don't really know much about it. Is the 3G capable ipad worth the extra $130 + monthly fee from either AT&T or Verizon for 3G data service or should I get one with just wifi? If I do go with the 3G capable ipad, which data service plan should I get? (I know AT&T charges $15 a month for 250 MBs of data and $30 a month for unlimited, but I don't know Verizon's rates)

Lamest question ever...

I was emailing back and forth with this guy on OKC. He IMed me before I got to answer the last message he sent to me which had tons of opportunity for good back and forth.

Do I respond to the message now? (It's a few days old) or just call it a wash?

TQC, there was this El Camino-like truck that came out a few years ago and was only made for a short time. I don't recall its model name (I'm not completely sure of the make, either; I think it was Ford but I could be completely wrong about that). Its only distinguishing feature was that it had a grille on the front that looked a bit like a smile, and it was shown in yellow in the commercials on tv. Also, Big & Rich did an ad with it. Any idea what I'm talking about?

Addictions?

Do you have any addictions? I don't mean like cocaine or what have you, I mean things like caffiene, interneting, exercise, etc. (although you could mention cocaine or whatever if you feel comfortable talking about it).

I was addicted to pot and opiates/pills, to such an extent that I owed $1900 to a loan shark. (Even though I was fortunate enough to never suffer physical withdrawals, just cravings) :S My husband quit, and I didn't want to lose him, so I did too. This coming June will be my fifth year sober.

Now, though, I'm addicted to caffiene pills. I take four all at once some days, and I do get withdrawals (awful headaches and vomiting) if I don't wean myself off of them gradually. I'm probably pretty addicted to the Internet/computers as well.

What's the last "little thing" to make you a bit sad?

My kitty didn't greet me at the door when I got home tonight and I was like "oh :(" because I always open the door slowly so her little face can peer around the edge. I found her in the kitchen devouring a cricket, and she redeemed herself (in her eyes) by giving me the cricket. mmmmm yummy!

Do your favorites change? If so, how often?

I mean this as in basic things like color, movie, season, etc... I hate the favorite color question bc honestly I think color is entirely contextual.

Also, unrelated and kind of specific: I have a friend who is missing a rim on her car's tire. I asked her if it happened in a cliche car chase and she didn't get the cliche. Can you help me find a youtube video of a car peeling around a corner and the tire rim rolling off so I can show her? I'd appreciate it even if you just know a scene in a movie this happens. Any other sources of car-tire-rim-lulz acceptable as well.

people who have been diagnosed with depression or anxiety disorder, or anything similar: how did the actual fact of being diagnosed with something change how you felt?
did it help you by giving you a specific reason you felt the way you did, or did it make you feel hopeless, like the feelings would never go away? or both?
