My cat is 12-14 years old, and as long as I've had her, which is over 11 years, she's drank water by dipping her paw in the bowl and licking the water off her paw. I've never seen her drink any other way.
I have no idea where she learned this was the normal way to drink water.
how do i make vegetables have more flavor? i dont eat them often and when i do i have to force myself. i also cant cook, but i wanted to know if their where any sauces or easy meals veggie wise you could tell me how to make?
Because I am a very plain girl and rarely add sauces to anything or order anything if it's overly spicy/sour, is teriyaki or sweet and sour sauce better tasting if I'm making a stirfry involving chicken, vegetables, and pineapple? I'm trying to achieve a sweeter tasting flavor rather than spicy, if that matters.
i've just started a "running" program yesterday. i did about 3 miles jogging most of the time and walking when i needed to. today, my calves are on fucking fire.
i bought a pair of these and apparently running pseudo barefoot is a completely different experience. i could definitely feel the difference but i now have blisters and am pretty sore.
how long should i wait before i attempt another run in those "five-finger" shoes? or should i just say pish posh and use regular running shoes?
also, how long can i expect to wait before i see results/am able to run at least a 5k without stopping? i know you can't answer specifically, because everyone is different, but if you could share your experience that'd be great.
(i ran cross country in high school and can't remember how long it took me to get conditioned enough to run without stopping for 10+ miles, but i think it was around a month, and i also trained very hard six days a week. this was like..8 years ago lol so i am no longer in that kind of shape.)
If you called a phone number of a business and their answering machine just gave the time of operation and to have a good day but didn't say "leave a message after the beep," would you have enough common sense to know that you can leave a message after the beep?
Inspired by people who don't leave messages at my workplace because they didn't know they could leave a message. Oh and I'm guessing whoever worked here previously didn't include that "leave a message" bit because it should be known that that's what answering machines do. Plus it saves time.
ETA: I work for a doctor's office and this message has been the same for 10+ years if this makes any difference.
I bought some vegetarian skallops a while ago and cooked them last night. They looked like assorted misshapen brain pieces or something when they came out of the can. The one on the right was all one piece, it looked like a frog when you picked it up. Couldn't they have it least tried to shape these things more like scallops?
Will you tell me about the last new food you tried that was absolutely repulsive?

The dead are walking the land, devouring the living! The roads are too jam-packed to leave town, so the only alternative is to protect yourself with armor and weaponry. However, everybody else came to the same conclusion minutes before you did, and the choice of armor and weapons has been picked through. This is all that remains. What weapon will you wield in zombie melee?
My family has a FB event for a big family reunion.. Apparently all of my FB friends are getting invites... I didn't invite them so I'm not sure why. Does anyone know how I can change it so they stop seeing the invite?
why can't i eat more than a few bites of something before getting full? i have to wait like 5 minutes between one or two bites just to finish like a boca burger. they're little! i don't mind not eating a lot but i'd like to just sit down and eat the thing without feeling like i'm going to burst.
What was the last thought you had that you are glad you didn't speak aloud? Share it now so we can judge you harshly.
I was reading the news about a fatal earthquake that caused major structural damage in a medieval town and my first thought was 'OH GOD, ALL THE OLD BUILDINGS!!! THEY'LL PROBABLY NEVER BE ABLE TO RESTORE THEM ALL!!!' Really can't restore dead people either, herp derp.
How honest should one be in a job interview about why you are leaving your current position?
I am currently looking to leave my job due to really poor management, and today I had the final straw when my manager called me unprofessional and disappointing in front of the entire staff during an all staff meeting. I will most likely be taking a pretty hefty pay cut.
What do I say during an interview if and when I am asked why I am leaving my current position? This was my first job and I've been there for 3 years. I've always heard it is bad to speak ill of previous employers during an interview, but I don't know a politically correct way to say "they suck."
The truly tragic part of all of this is that I haven't used it in over a week since I've been broke. I get paid today at 5pm and was going to celebrate by putting gas in my car, but now I can't find my card. Looks like I need to go to the drive up first and get out some cash. :(
If you have a dog, how good is his or her recall? I've been taking Kobe to fenced-in off-leash parks and while his recall is pretty good in the house, outside...well, it is an entirely different story. I want us to get to the level where I'd feel comfortable in an off leash situation without a fence but I don't see that happening anytime soon.
Do you have any pictures of your dog at a park or playing with other dogs? Want to share?
Can you use this post to rant about something that's really fucking bugging you?
So I went to the professor today to discuss my paper and he pretty much destroyed it. I don't have enough time to rewrite it so I won't bother. I feel like crying. I'm super overwhelmed with the huge amount of work I need to have done by Sunday and I'm too tired to do anything but freak out over it.

Which sentence segments or terms do you feel should not be heard on the first date? Like there's few segues where that should be brought up upon just meeting them. Anything you don't check can be assumed that you can foresee a context where it's acceptable
Yesterday the movie theatre I work at got three brand new digital projectors. These are our first digital projectors, and I am the only one that works there who knows what they're doing with them, since I transferred from a theatre that already had them. My GM told me to come in today (my day off) to help out and then rescinded that, saying it would kill payroll... which is nice because it looks like I'll only get twenty-nine hours this week. If I get a panicked call from anyone tonight should I ignore it, or would that just be mean? Half of me thinks I should take the call to prevent everything from being totally fucked up, but the other half of me says fuck it, it's my day off.
I'm super bored. What are some good websites to visit?
TQC I know this is asked often but I cannot find any of the old posts. Where can I watch shows online? Specifically.. where can I watch Greys Anatomy (Season 3) without having to worry about the whole "you have watched 72 minutes of free tv! Wait 60 minutes to watch more"?
So, I have a giant tub of vanilla flavored whey protein. It's fairly tasty. I want to add-in fruit and make smoothies, though, because I don't eat enough fruit and it seems like it would be a reasonable way for me to eat more of it.
Anyway, I have oranges, bananas, pineapples and blackberries. What fruit/combination thereof should I put in?
Let's say you get in a huge fight with a friend on LJ. Lines are crossed, and you defriend the person. If that person had a significant other who was also on your flist, would you filter certain things from that significant other for concern they might tell your ex-friend?
I never realized how intense my fear of spiders is until today. A week or so ago, a large, black jumping spider appeared in our apartment building, which freaked me out...a lot. Well today, on my way to open my boyfriend's car door, a similar spider was near the handle, so I refused to get in on my side. We thought that on our way to our destination, the spider would fall off...nope. I opened the passenger door and there it was...and it crawled inside the car and disappeared. I then hyperventilated and started crying, refusing to get in the car in the middle of a parking lot.
Anyway...do you think this was the same spider from last week and it is stalking us/me?
DK/DC: What are you afraid of? Have you ever had to face this fear? If so, what was your reaction?
The following made me feel like a right weirdo, so I ordered one online.
I feel like I am the only person who would ever do something this stupid. For this reason I come to you here at TQC as let's face it you lot REALLY are a bunch of odd bods ummm, I mean have much life experience, yeah that's what I mean.
The other day I was being chased by a bee. I ran inside and closed the door with it on the other side, all pretty normal, but then I locked the door!
TQC, I have a makeup question. I've recently started wearing lipstick, and I need a lip primer to go with it. I've been looking at both Urban Decay (I have the eyeshadow primer and love it) and Too Faced, but I'm open to pretty much anything, especially if I can buy it online. Have you used either of these primers? What brand would you recommend?
this is a mac problem (apple mac book pro - not cosmetics).
my laptop is fairly new, i was using a different one last year. i do all of my assignments on word, and help my friends with their spelling/grammar on their assignments. i had no dramas downloading any word-document from uni or from friend's usb sticks onto my computer.
now whenever i put a different person's usb stick into my computer, the document is blank, all i can see are the red and green lines denoting poor spelling or vocabulary. i have to highlight the whole document to change the font and size of font before i can see it. this is the same for anything (templates, coversheets, marking criteria etc) that i try to download from uni. same thing when i look at an assignment from last year. this is particularly annoying because i have templates on my usb stick just the way i like them (coversheet already filled in, except for the details that change) a title page, and page numbers starting the 3rd page (where my actual response begins) as well as headers and footers on every page except the coversheet.
it would seem easy to just make new templates, but i can't do that because i can't access the coversheets and keep them in their original state (which is nesassary and such. i also like to be able to write something on a uni library save it my usb and know it will behave to the way i want to my personal compueter.
anything i could change? it's making it really rough!
Is anyone else having issues with Netflix? Yesterday it was loading very slowly and now today, it keeps scrambling the image (but the audio seems fine), like when you're watching satellite on a windy day.
What would you do if a more then acquaintance/not quite friend posted a really unflattering pic of you on facebook? She was tagging someone else but caught my ginormo ass and I find it embarrassing but asking her to take it down seems more embarrassing.
would you consider this statement racist? "Also I'm sick of hearing about "how hard it is" for illegals to get here. What the he'll is wrong with that? Means that the border pAtrol is at least TRYING to do their job. These people are CRIMINALS. Bottom line. They should be treated like criminals no matter if their intentions are good or bad. Stop taking our jobs please and go back to your country and get here legally."
some kid on facebook posted that so i called him a racist. so he said...
"positive hc focusing on racial unity. I am far from a racist. I just felt I needed to defend myself on that one."
also someone else said " Following in the steps of Edward Norton?"
and he said ". Minus the curbstomping. Just getting tired of being told the we owe these people stuff when they've done nothing but break the law."
