According to the weather channel, it's supposed to rain for about the next month. I need to get rid of shit and want to have a yardsale. Should I just pick a weekend and chance it or let my stuff collect dust and clutter my livingroom for another month?
Do you buy stuff at yardsales?

Are you allergic to anything? What?

I posted on facebook "my throat and chest hurts :("

My sister commented with "I'm praying for ya" 

Am I unreasonable for being annoyed by this?  I didn't say anything to her but I'm just annoyed feeling.

so when if The Rapture doesn't happen, is it too rude to facebook my cousin saying, "Where's your Jesus now?" he linked a website on his FB yesterday that was like, "We don't have enough time to print out pamphlets anymore" loool. o i c.

i'm going with yes but i'd love to do it. he's such a little shit(not for being religious, he's really self righteous and kind of racist).

I've been up for 26 hours and I've lost motivation to finish the last paper-and-a-half I have. I need to pass all my take home finals in at 3pm in order to go to the Cape for the weekend with my SO.

How do I remotivate? I'm not really TIRED tired, but I seriously have lost my will to get anything accomplished. No more caffeine, too much gives me heart trouble. Thoughts?

What do you do for work?
Through your work, do you come into contact with a particular group of people that you wouldn't usually if you didn't do the job you do?
What's something you end up saying a lot because of work?

I am the receptionist/customer service at a thrift store.
A lot of homeless people and people recovering from addictions come in and get free clothes from us.
I tell people that they need a key for the bathroom and that it's "through the doorway and on the right" a lot. I also tell people that the furniture is now across the street at a new store... "Right across South Fraser!"

I think I tried to claw my eyes out in my sleep. Again.

1. Do you ever injure yourself in your sleep?

2. Hypothetically, do you think any sort of meat could ever be integrated into a smoothie? I'm wondering if I could get some creamy chicken and broccoli thing going on without heaving out my organs.

3. Have you ever been attacked or threatened by a wild animal? A crow was pecking around in the ground yesterday, saw me, and spread his wings and charged. I retreated.

4. Will I ever have respect in the eyes of birds again?

5. How much time today do you think you'll spend making mischief?

Say you met someone amazing and could very well see yourself together in the long term. You're both in love and want to be together.

BUT being with him/her means moving miles and miles away from your family who you are pretty close to.

Would you do it?
OR
Are you one who thinks that romance can be found anywhere, and thus you just stay close to your family?

It's St. Patrick's day and you aren't wearing green. That cute guy/girl at work/school calls you on your lack of Irish colors and is swooping in to pinch you. What body parts are acceptable pinch areas in this situation?

Arm
50(23.0%)
Lower back
19(8.8%)
Shoulder
41(18.9%)
Thigh
14(6.5%)
Nose
21(9.7%)
Boobs
4(1.8%)
Cheek (face)
27(12.4%)
Ass cheek
11(5.1%)
Genital region
3(1.4%)
I lash out in self defense like a cornered animal. NO TOUCHING!
27(12.4%)

Same situation, except it's your older boss/teacher. What are acceptable pinch areas for this person?

Arm
34(27.0%)
Lower back
1(0.8%)
Shoulder
23(18.3%)
Thigh
2(1.6%)
Nose
5(4.0%)
Boobs
3(2.4%)
Cheek (face)
7(5.6%)
Ass cheek
2(1.6%)
Genital region
2(1.6%)
I lash out in self defense like a cornered animal. NO TOUCHING!
47(37.3%)

For anyone who picked more than 5 pinch areas for the first question, why do you suppose you allowed the cute person so much access?

I have a huge respect for the unspoken laws that apply to St. Patty's day, and I was found in non-compliance of those laws. I deserve punishment
9(18.8%)
Let's face it, I'm pretty easy
18(37.5%)
Setting them up for a sexual harrassment suit
3(6.2%)
I have a fetish for being pinched
3(6.2%)
Slow day at work and unprovoked groping would probably perk things up a bit
15(31.2%)

For those of you who let the cute person pinch you in more places than the older person, why do you think you answered the way you did?

Old people creep me out
10(16.4%)
Younger people have better eyesight and I'm sure the cute person noticed my lack of green. The older person probably has worse vision and might have been lying. I don't reward liars
7(11.5%)
I'm shallow and cute people deserve more choices than the less-cute people
15(24.6%)
Due to the nature of my court-ordered restriction, I'm not allowed within 5 feet of anyone over 50
4(6.6%)
All this pinching is akin to really light foreplay and I have no intention of letting Oldie get to square one

TQC, I have a top round steak that I want to cook for dinner and am craving something that has either thin strips of meat or cubed meat. What is something good that I can make with this?
(I'm not a picky eater at all, am allergic to mushrooms so those are out and I'm going grocery shopping so I can pick up any ingredients.)

Have you ever written a research paper or other sort of academic work outside of a class or school? Why did you do it and how did it go for you?

What is your general opinion about ~*academic*~ work (as in research with no real practical application)? I'm beginning to have my doubts about the whole thing.

Dear Dr. TQC

So I jump on trampolines pretty frequently, and I get injured sometimes. This past week though I've noticed something odd. If I lean on my left leg in a certain way, there's an odd pressure in my left knee. It doesn't hurt, it just feels weird and uncomfortable.

Since there's no pain is this an actual injury? Should I take it easy on the knee or ignore it? I kind of love jumping on trampolines and running and all of that good stuff, so I'd like to keep going but not if it's going to blow out my meniscus or something.

Do you have good knees, bad knees, or somewhere in-between?

Have you ever experienced ~*misplaced discrimination*~? Which is to say, someone treated you differently because they believed you belonged to a group which you aren't actually a part of? Did you enjoy having a fun little peek into the world of shit people in that group live in, like a tiny little oppression vacation?


My mom was telling me that when my dad and her were first looking for a house after they got married, she called the company of a childhood friend who was building a development and asked to look at one of the houses under her new married name. When he didn't get back to her, she called again and spoke to him directly, asking why he never called her back. His answer: "I didn't know it was you! And with your new last name, I thought you were black!" lol oh wow, glad they cleared that up

I just found out yesterday that my ex boyfriend of 3 years was cheating on me. Though we've been broken up for 8+ months now, I still can't help but to be a little upset (mainly angry) about it. It's not like I'm devastated about it, I'm just pissed off and want to yell at him for all the things he's ever done to me.

Now, I'm currently in a committed relationship and I guess what I'm wondering is, is it wrong for me to be upset about this when I've already moved on?

I don't actually plan on confronting him because I know that it won't go over well. But is it okay that I'm mad and would it be wrong of me to want to talk about it with my current boyfriend?

I am going to do me some knitting, TQC, but I am not interested in what the roommate has on the TV (House, no thanks). I am thinking some animated movies. And/or Disney.

What would you recommend? I've already rewatched Sleeping Beauty, How To Train Your Dragon, Beauty and the Beast, and both Mulan movies.

Person A and person B are both going to the same event. Person A has a major thing for person B which is not reciprociated, and both are aware of how the other feels. Person A has accommodation already sorted out, and is looking for someone to share with. Would you consider it creepy/inappropraite for them to ask person B if they want to share a flat/room with them?

You might not remember, but a few months ago my house burned down. I've been homeless since Feb and am now just getting into a new place. I'm sure I am forgetting stuff to buy for my house. Suggestions? I pretty much need to buy everything,

Also, I'm beginning to think I'm in need of therapy or I really never grew up since I write this from quite a large cupboard. I have my duvet and laptop and wine. It's around 2 1/2ft by 4ft. Am I insane?

If there were big skeletons in the closet of a family member you were close to, would you prefer to know, or not know? ex: Uncle Tom was in prison in his twenties; Dad cheated on Mom when you were a baby, one of your siblings was put up for adoption before you were born?

What if it wasn't a family member, but a close friend?

1. How do you think that our criminal justice system should handle the problem of child molesters (for example, should they be castrated, sentenced to life imprisonment or capital punishment, etc. etc.)?

2. Are you comfortable with the idea of child molesters serving their time in prison, and then being re-released into society?

3. Do you think that being a paedophile is an unchangeable part of someone's chemical make-up -- like being straight or gay -- or do you think it's possible for someone to be reformed and rehabilitated?
