Hubs is on the couch sleeping but he keeps having these random outbursts where he just starts talking about nonsense or he starts shushing somebody loudly. He's a teacher so I think he's having a dream about school lol.
It would be totally funny to tape him so he can actually get to hear what he says instead of taking my word for it, y/y?
if you had a close friend who had a hobby that involved occasional performances, would you go see them, even if you weren't interested in their hobby? like amateur community theater, a garage band, etc. if you would still go, what would be the most you would pay to see your friend perform?
My bank just sent me an email and I get email alerts when I overdraw or I have only $20 left in my account. It was just an advertisement for some of their services that they're offering but I saw 'PNC BANK' as the sender and damn near pooped myself.
What's the last thing that gave you that instant scared to death feeling but turned out to be nothing?
Why am I always so damn thirsty? I am just constantly craving cold and liquids. My hypochondriac MIL thinks I'm diabetic but I'm... not.
Have you ever ridden in a car with an absolutely bat-turd terrifying driver? What was it like?
My ex-boyfriend drove like a chimp on meth and it was so bad that it was a factor in our breaking up. Srsly asking me to take the wheel from the passenger seat on the highway so you can remove your pullover is NOT OK.
tqc, what was that code you put on the end of community links that allows you to see posts made by specific users?
since that will hopefully be answered quickly, will you open up mspaint/go here and draw your best picture of a dong? bonus points for creativity and if you're at work and cannot participate, will you show your displeasure through mspaint drawings?
Will you tell me about your first date with your current SO?
He messaged me on okc. We met for dinner then drove around talking and he showed me around town. We ended up at the Gaylord Texan and walked around checking it out. He kissed me there. Then we went back to my place.
I posted the other day about my house fire. When it happened, my cat ran away. He's 6yrs old, a housecat and has never been outside before. This was a month ago. I put up posters, spoke to neighbours and walked the streets looking for him. A few people did say that they had seen a cat with his description but theres been nothing for a while.
I know one day, if I don't get him back I will have to deal with it but right now, I'm not giving up.
Is there anything I can do other than calling his name? Any tips on finding him? I miss him so much.
I live 6 blocks away from this really nice yoga studio that has a program where you work for a few hours helping out in the office, doing really easy tasks (registering people, answering the phones, a lot of down time) and you can take free classes there - as many as you want, and they offer a lot of different ones at different times. Nice deal, right? Especially since I don't have a lot of money and so far have been unwilling to spend money on gym membership or exercise classes but do want to work out. I've never taken a yoga class but want to, especially since I've been stressed and have recently been interested in meditation and that kind of thing.
The problem is, there is only one work slot available: Saturday mornings, 9:30am-1pm. I like to go out on Friday night, but a lot of times I'm also tired from the week and don't go too crazy. Also, since I wake up so early during the week (6:30), I'm nearly ALWAYS up on the weekend by 9. And it's not like I do anything useful on a Saturday morning otherwise. But then, Saturday mornings ARE for doing nothing, and if I'm hungover working might pretty much suck. But if I need to I could switch times with someone else.
so apparently I can't make a poll because I have a basic account but what do you think? Should I take yoga classes in exchange for giving up my Saturday mornings? Or should I keep my Saturday mornings but no yoga???
Around what age do you think a person can be said to have lived a "long life" when s/he dies?
I've been thinking about Elizabeth Taylor who died at the age of 79 a few days ago... and that's a pretty good run - especially considering how frail she's been for some time - but I don't know. It still feels a bit short for me.
When you're up in the 80s and beyond, that's a "long lived life" to me.
Will you please comment with your username so that we may ask you a question? Some of you I talk to all of the time on here but I feel like I barely know anything about you, so please forgive me if I ask you a question I should already know the answer to. :)
What's your work schedule like? I work 5:30-9:30 on Fridays, 4:30-9:30 on Saturdays, 11:30-6:30 Sundays, and 4:00-9:30 on Tuesdays. I'm off Mondays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays.
If you work retail, is it rare to have a steady schedule (same days off, same hours) every week?Would your prefer to have a steady schedule or one that changes? I've been at my new retail job for two weeks and my schedule is the exact same. My coworkers told me the schedule hardly ever changes.I am liking it because it's easier to plan things around since I know when I"ll be off.
1) Do you think none of this would have happened if she would have just signed the damn autograph? 2) Why did my school not have anyone awesome like this working there? The best we had was a teacher who was caught in a sting picking up a hooker
The doctorb just called and it's official; My cat has the Diabetus. On monday I will be learning how to steal his blood, how to shoot him up, and when and what to feed him.
Does anyone else have experience with their cat becoming diabetic? Can you tell me about it?
Apparently, unlike dogs, cats can potentially diet down and not need insulin shots if they are lucky. Has anyone had any success getting their kitty of their needles? Or at lest dieting down a big kitty (mines a big cuddly 22lb teddy bear)?
How much, if at all, should I tip my dog groomer today?
If it matters - this is his first groom, he has no mats and it should be a relatively easy stress free thing since he loves having his paws and ears touched and isn't sensitive to it. I also just started to take a grooming class yesterday, so this will probably be his first and last full groom service ever. It costs $50, is a $5 tip appropriate? Because that was what I was going to give her but now I'm paranoid and my mom said she only tipped our old groomer (years ago when we last had a dog) during the holidays or when he had a mat and she knew it'd be a stressful grooming appt.
What kind of weird treats does your animal like?
I also bought my dog some "tubules" which are like jerky beef trachea, but they smell better than the one thing I give him which, it turns out, are like some part of a bull penis or something. I don't know, he loves jerky-fied cow parts, apparently. Flossies are his absolute favorite but for $4 a pop and the fact that he can finish them in 10 minutes flat, I only give those on extra special treat days.
Dear TQC, why do I always break my headphones in exactly the same way? (I somehow bust up the wiring so the sound goes to one ear only unless I bend the wire at exactly the right angle to the jack and hold it there)
Can I stop doing this somehow? Can I fix them?
Is there anything you have to buy every six months or so because you keep breaking it?
DK/DC - Can you recommend something to listen to that would sound awesome if I can only hear it in my left ear?
I'm taking my brother out for sushi for his birthday and then going to see HOBO WITH A SHOTGUN a movie written and directed by kids I went to high school with. The nationwide (Canadian) release is TODAY! It's really exciting.
I've never left a job unless location etc has dicated before, but this job is awful, and the pay is terrible. I'm going on holiday for 3 weeks, and said i'd let them know when i'd be back. I don't intend to come back. Who and how do I tell them? I never come across the managers, only supervisors.
I just made shortbread and gingerbread mans, and it's getting a bit late, but baking feels incomplete without making some kind of cakey thing. Should I make cupcakes too?
Edit: Actually I just remembered I have SPARKLE GLITTER ICING I can use to decorate my gingerbread men! And I cut my shortbread out in the shapes of tops and shoes and bags, HOW CAN I USE THE GLITTER BEST?
Also for when I do make cupcakes: what is your favourite cupcake flavour? Anything different from vanilla or chocolate?
If you had been the first person to use any piece of technology to communicate (telegram, e-mail, phone, text, twitter etc) or the first man/woman on the moon or WHATEVER..... ....what would you have said?
I seem to spend an inordinate amount of time shouting "Hello? HELLO???? CA N YOU HEAR ME NOW???" down the phone. So I hope it wouldn't have been that, but it probably would have been....
