how typical is it for your doctor/doctors in your area to prescribe antibiotics? and for what?

i have lung disease, so i feel like i get them a lot, but it's my understanding that people don't get them for every other infection...

Anyone else getting sick of Johnny Depp?

The last movie I really liked him in was Sleepy Hollow. He was okay in Sweeney Todd, but the character isn't supposed to be a murdering robot. In the show, Sweeney actually has a personality.

I wish he'd go away for a few years and wait for a good role.

TQC ers who do yoga - validate me. Is this weird??

 First time taking class with this instructor at a new yoga studio . All seemed normal until the teacher came over to me at the end and asked "May I put some lavender essential oil on your forehead?" I say, ok. She rubbed it on my head, then cupped the back of my head with her hands.  At first I thought the head rub was nice, then I felt weird. Is this unusual for a yoga teacher to do?

I have huge thighs that rub together when I walk. This is causing a lot of my clothes to wear out prematurely. Anybody else in the same boat and have any tips other than "lose weight, fatty"?

Sunscreen

Hi guys!

What brands of sunscreen won't stain clothes?

I had skin cancer in the past and used to wear sunscreen every day. Unfortunately, it kept leaving ugly orange stains on all of my clothes. Last year I finally gave up and wore long sleeves and long pants the whole summer long.

This summer I'd love to get back into shorts. Can you help me?

This might be a stupid question but how do I tell if one of my wisdom teeth needs to be removed? I was told by my dentist a few years ago that they won't have to be taken out - could something have changed since then or is this a forever thing?
Have you had your wisdom teeth out? How was it?

One of them is starting to poke through & it is sore and was too swollen to close my jaw properly, but I've been taking ibuprofen and the swelling/pain is down a lot. It seems like it's coming in straight & I can feel my teeth shift a little but I don't think it's obstructing them. I reallyreally hate the dentist and I dread going to get it checked on. D:

 Tqc-ers help settle my anxiety;

I'm a college student home for the summer and want to work as much as possible since I am bored out of my mind here. I am currently a waitress and shifts are usually 4-5 hours about four day days a week. In my searches for another job I had an interview today. it would basically be a sales job just on weekends for the next month and a half, 10 dollars an hour. The hourly rate is a bit more than I make at the restaurant and if I make a lot of commission, working those two days will make a lot more than I would all week at my other job. On the downside, if I dont do so well as a sales person by three dates, they will let me go; since it's not worth them paying my hourly rate to have me do nothing.

Now my question for you is; how do I break it to my other job that I can no longer work weekends? phone, email or in person? The manager is a real douche bag and I've already requested off a few days during the summer so I'm nervous about having to take the weekends off, even if its just for the next month and a half. 

I'm also not the best people-person so I worry how well I would do as a sales person...

For all of those who are nervous around people, have you ever had a sales/high interaction job? How did it go

College

How much trouble was it for your school to give you an itinerary /dates to orientation?  

Shouldn't admissions be able to give you information?  

 
This community college is making me nervous.  My sister is going to a University and isn't having this much trouble.  I am frustrated.

 TQC, I got my third concussion two weeks ago. Have you ever had a concussion? What was your experience like? I am tired of being in pain all day, and being dizzy constantly. Any advice?


My head hurts so bad I spent most of the morning crying and now I'm playing RuneScape high off of prescription drugs. 


Edit: I have been to the ER and the doctor. But will probably be going back.

I have a MyTouch 4G.  When I start a new text message ("Compose new message") or make a phone call, it not only displays my contacts, but also every contact from facebook that lists their phone number.  These people do not show up at all in my contacts. This is annoying and I want to stop this, but I can't seem to figure out how.  I've gone through the settings for the phone, texting, and facebook and can't find anything.  Do you know how to change this?

DK/DC - I'm currently watching 18 dogs. How many could/would you handle? My record is 23 by myself.

Posted via LiveJournal app for Android.

ETA: So, the MyTouch 4G has this friend stream thing (don't know if other phones have this or not) and logging into facebook for that (which was done at phone set-up) is what caused all those contacts to pop up.  So, I found out how to log out of that and problem solved!

My coworker wants to show this to her 8-year old girl, but is concerned if it may be too heavy for her. For those of you who have seen this movie/cartoon, what do you think? Is it something a little girl can watch, or is it for more mature kids?

I am trying to remember the name of a mixed drink and I'm not sure what's in it. It's called a "minty __[something]___" and supposedly it's a choice drink of servers because it leaves your breath smelling like mint instead of alcohol. It's got a syrupy sort of consistency and is clear bluish. Do you know???

EDIT: OKAY I think it was rumple minze! I probably only imagined that it was blue... and called minty something.

if you don't know, tell me what is the cutest species of animal?

Help me with my resume?

I work in IT. Right now I work at one company (A) as a contractor but another company (B) actually employs me.

How do I put this on my resume?

It doesn't seem quite right to say either just A or B. And company B - onsite at company A also seems weird.

Edit: Thanks!

This is a boring question, but I have a problem that nobody in real life can help me with.

Last week I won a scholarship from the Mass Society of CPAs and at the reception I met a bunch of different people who told me to send them my resume and they would set up interviews with me for a potential job. I have the email written, but I'm not sure what to put as the subject line. What do you think would be an appropriate subject line? I don't want them to just delete the email without reading it!

If you don't know, do you have any advice on what to put into the email? I think I have something good, but I can always use other opinions.

Any help would be greatly appreciated :)

so i am planning to make a disco ball bra (a la lady gaga i guess) by gluing mirror tiles onto a bra...

TQC, I've been in such a funk lately. It's gotten so bad that I find myself either on the verge of tears or just bawling my eyes out at any given moment of the day. This is a worse funk than the ones I experience occassionally, but during my normal ones I can always count on listening to Iron & Wine and laying in bed with a nice cup of hot tea to make me feel somewhat better.

Hey TQC. Serious question time. My SO basically just said, "I can't watch movies or tv without smoking weed first, because I can't let my mind go enough to get into whatever I'm watching." Yes, he's on ADD meds. Does anyone else have this problem? What do you do about it (besides get high)? 'Cause it irritates me that I can't just be like, "Oh hey, let's watch a movie or watch tv" and have him enjoy it without being high. Am I being irrational for feeling like this? This applies to all movie-watching, including going to theaters.

DK/DC: If you could go to London or Florence, which would you choose? Assume you have Internet friends in London but have always really wanted to go to Florence.

TQC, I need some computer advice!

So this new Firefox 4 is really annoying me and I've been thinking of changing my browser to Google Chrome. Is this a good decision?

And if I get rid of Firefox all together, will my bookmarks disappear, or can they be transferred over to Google Chrome? If so, yay! If not, time to crank out some good ole'  paper and pencil to save these sites!

I'm going to my dad's for a BBQ on Saturday, what should I bring?
I would usually bring dessert, but he's diabetic, and I don't want to fool around with buying fake sugar/making something that tastes like crap.
I need to bring something that's compatible with bbq (although I'm not sure what he's making), and that I can cook the night before, since I'm going straight from work. His wife mostly eats shrimp, and doesnt like cheese, chicken or potatoes very much. I can't cook shrimp (and wouldnt want to cook them the day before anyways).

fruit? (too sugary?)
some kind of soup?
salad? or ingredients for salad?
something else?
appetizers? but what?

What's the worst thing you've seen in public?

This afternoon I was behind this very obese woman in Walmart. She was so big I couldn't scoot past her in the isle, so I was just slowly following and picking up things I needed as I walked past them. I heard her grunt, she stopped for a moment, then continued walking. She was wearing a moo-moo, and before my very eyes, a large turd fell from the moo-moo onto the floor. I just stood in total shock. She took a few more steps, let out a very loud fart, and continued walking. At this time I turned around and sprinted down the isle, away from the horrible, horrible, mess.

I mentioned to a clerk the gardening isle needed to be cleaned, but I didn't elaborate.

I certainly hope I never see anything worse.

To purchase or not to purchase

 I want to buy a new truck.  The deal offered is too sweet to ignore (the dealership is moving overstock at a huge discount).  But the purchase of this truck might push our debt ratio too far and disallow the purchase of a new home next spring or summer.  My wife's income will be included in the calculations when we are ready to buy  new house though, so the truck purchase might not have any real effect on this calculation.  

My question  is this:  Should I buy the truck and hope for the best? Or should I wait until after the house purchase?

Anyone else in TQC get an allergic reaction to a tetanus shot? (or shots in general I guess idk)

I got one in 2000 and developed a HUGE red bump that took up like half my upper arm. They gave me antibiotics and life was good. I just got one yesterday since I needed one (especially since I'm traveling soon) and the red bump is well on its way and I currently have a temperature of 100.6. Arghhhh.

Edit since three is not at least five, are you playing any Facebook Scrabble games right now? If so, what are they called?

Mine are called "tacos" "hamtube" and "badgerines!!!!"
