So, do you like your SO? More specifically, do you like your relationship with them? Are they respectful, fun, reasonable, etc.?

Inspired by tin_foil_hat's post below, and the possible, hopeful theory that we only post when we have a problem with them so it seems like half of the interwebs is in a terrible relationship.

Do certain accents turn you on?


I love French/English accents, and I'm watching a Russian dude blow up his X-Box for the red ring of death, and I think Russian accents are fucking adorable. He said "It's fucked" and I just about squee'd at his cuteness.

TQC, I am disappoint. I was about to order a couple of movie posters on Amazon.com and it tells me they can't be shipped to my (European) address! Are there other reliable online stores that have a large selection of movie posters?


If not, can you show me a movie poster you like?

Do you have trouble taking pills? I am so bad about swallowing them. If I have to take more than one in an instance, I have to take them one at a time and wait a few minutes between each one or I'll gag.

Do you remember to take your medicines? I just got a reminder app for my iPod that will hopefully help me keep track.

1. Who's your favorite classical composer? (I'm really grooving on a Shostakovich/Stravinsky/Bartok Pandora station lately, and don't want to get into classical vs. modern. You know what I mean)

2. Have you seen the movie "Paul"? I'm looking for opinions on the movie itself, not just how it looks from what you've seen or read - I totally dismissed it until a guy whose taste I really trust said it was quite good and a typical Simon Pegg / Nick Frost joint.

3. Superman?

have you ever been in the same room as someone who had the same ringtone as you?

yesterday i was in the breakroom and i heard The Imperial March going off. so i looked down at my phone and had a split second where i couldn't understand why it was ringing without there being a call. then i realized it was someone else's phone. it was quite surreal. unfortunately, he wasn't cute.

BONUS QUESTION: my sister will be here in 2 hours to take me to my therapy appointment because the buses don't run there and it's too cold and wet to bike.

should i spend the next 2 hours showering and picking out a cute outfit since it's my day off and i should look fabulous, or go back to sleep until like 12:45?

I am curious what others think of this...

My sis is going to college this Fall and during one of our shopping sprees she said she is going to wear heels everyday in college (right now, she doesn't wear heels on a regular bases). I then asked if she thought maybe it might be more comfortable to wear flats or some other shoe/boot that be more comfortable walking around campus. She told me that college was different and she could dress more conservative in college. I just nodded smiling and thinking she has a very dreamy idea of what college is like. I don't think she knows what she is talking about.

What did you wear in college?
Did you wear heels everyday to walk all over campus?
Do you think people dress more conservative in college?

Fantasizing about winning the lottery

So, Megamillions is $304M.  When I fantasize about winning, I always assume that I will live to be 90 and figure out how much I would get per week for the rest of my life.  What with taxes and all, I figure you only actually get about 65%.  So based on that, if I won, I would have $90K/week for the rest of my life.  My daughter would have $55K/week for the rest of her life. 

How much would you have and what would you do with it?

My roommate and I talk frequently talk in all caps on Facebook and obviously we're just being silly. When I comment in caps to other people, some of them legit think I'm yelling at them, even if my response is sarcastic or joking. How much does writing in all caps bother you?

Is there anything new you're trying soon? My roommate and I are taking a social dance class through our college and I'm SUPER EXCITED :D It starts in a week and a half and I cannot wait!

Do you or would you get annoyed by people who ask for free help in your area of expertise when you're not even at work?

For example, if you were a doctor and people kept asking you for medical advice (outside of work). Or if you were a graphic designer and people wanted you to help them with their design (when you're not working and not being compensated).

I usually have the Turkey Guacamole, but I am in the mood for something different. And I always get the Kiwi Quencher as my smoothie.

TQC I need help picking colors for my new house! I have 3 bathrooms and need to pick a color scheme for the third one.  Everything in it is white (cabinets, tile, bathtub, etc) and I don't want any dark color on the wall. I'm trying to avoid the cliche blue or green color you see in bathrooms. What color(s) should I bring into the room?

Also, the basement is more room than I know what to do with.  The main area is L -shaped.  One part I'm going to use as a second tv area, but I have no idea what to do with the other part. Suggestions?

Out of all the large cities you have been to, which one did you think had the best architecture? Why?

I personally think Chicago has the best architecture, followed closely by San Francisco. Chicago utilizes so many different styles of architecture (from Gothic, to Victorian, to Art Deco, to Modern, etc...) and strangely enough they all seem to blend together. San Fran on the other hand is so quirky and utterly spontaneous in the way everything is built there.

I am disappoint.

I went to the Apple store today to buy a new ipad, but they were sold out and the guy I talked to didn't know when they would be getting another shipment. I then decided that I'd just order it online from Apple, but the website says that it is about 4-5 weeks after ordering before ipads get shipped out. Now I don't know whether to buy it online and wait until May to actually get it or to hope that the Apple store near me gets another shipment in soon and buy it there. What do you think, TQC?

I am better off...

I'm a college student who has two quarters to graduate. After I complete the spring quarter, should I:

a) finish up during the summer

or

b) finish up during the fall?

The benefit of choosing (b) is that I'd be able to pursue an internship during the summer-- however; I'd be stuck living at my parents' house the entire time, which is a rather undesirable position.

So earlier I dropped off all of my ex's shit at her house, on the curb really, and didn't bother her at all. I texted her and gave her good wishes and told her to take care. Apparently this caused a shit storm and now her friends and steroid abuser roommate want to throw physical threats in my general direction. I didn't do anything wrong, and I am getting tired of all of this. I am not taking crap from people anymore and letting them intimidate me. I just came out of the movies to a bunch of threats on my phone :p. What would you do in my shoes? I can not get a restraining order right now because it will kill my chances of the police job I am in the running for. (not irony really, but still -- lol)

I do believe that physical confrontation will occur in the near future, so just any general advice about this situation is nifty. Why are people so god damn crazy?

So I hung out with someone today. He's one of those people who gives off the air of "Whatevs, I don't give a shit", and is very ope-minded but speaks his mind. I feel like I pissed him off/made him feel uncomfortable because although we're friends', we've never talked about ourselves and we ended up talking about ourselves and I feel like I must have weirded him out with my hyperactive anxiety.

I asked him to text me when he got home since he'd been drinking so I knew he was safe. What should I tell him to apologise so I don't seem like an utter wanker?

How much do your haircuts cost?

How often do you get them?

How much do you like them once you leave the hairdresser's?

If you have a regular hairdresser, what is their name? Tell me about them.


My SO gave trimmed up my hair a bit, which means I can stretch it another month without paying for a $70 haircut. I probably average one every three months because short hair is hard to do much with myself :/ I usually dislike them when I get them done, and then am ok with them a week later, but I always end up going when I'm PMSing, so I don't know if that's the hairdresser's fault. My hairdresser is Rob, he has a koi tattoo and a girlfriend and hates NYE in the city.
