How do the people you live with currently drive you insane?
-They put plates in the sink with food still on them. -Dad leaves the sponge in the sink and it gets mildewy and nasty. -He also uses hand towels to clean up messes so they smell even after washing. -General lack of hygiene. I'm the only one who flushes every time. My mom never washes her hands after going to the bathroom because "I'm not putting my hands in my mouth". They leave stained underwear on the laundry pile crotch side up for the whole world to see. My mom picks her nose and gets angry when you tell her to stop. My sister bathes once a week and smells. I'm also the ONLY ONE who washes out the tub after using it.
Yeah, they wonder why I always spray things with Lysol before touching them.
I was giving my guinea pig attention and noticed a huge lump tumor/lump under her jaw that wasn't there two days ago. What would cause a tumor to develop in 2 days? I'm taking her to the vet tomorrow but I don't have a lot of money for surgery. Has anything like this happened with one of your pets?
i'm planning my daughter's birthday party at a facility with lots of bouncy houses, and it's turning out to be more expensive than i anticipated. would it be rude to ask parents to pay their child's admission cost if we're providing pizza and cake?
ps my daughter is turning 19, still not rude?? right???
Next month, the SO and I are visiting Providence, RI and Boston, MA. What are the must-try food places for either place? Looking for great hole in the wall delicious food, fancy dinner places, brunch, bars, and overall cool places. Price range can vary, it is vacation, after all!
In Providence we're staying at the Biltmore, and in Boston at the Langham in the Financial District, but we will have transportation. Thanks in advance!
Sunday we are having a theme night at the cottage, where everyone picks their own theme, comes dressed for their theme and has a short activity relating to the theme they chose for everyone to do. I still haven't decided what theme to choose! Does anyone have any suggestions of something fun for about 6 people to do?
I'm going to a strip club, for the first time ever, with my SO tonight. It's something we both wanted to do so I'm excited.. BUT, I know nothing about strip club etiquette, other than tipping decently is important. What other tips can you give me?
I'm never hungry when I wake up in the morning, and so, my first meal is usually lunch. Whenever I mention it to people, they tell me "You need breakfast, it's important" or "It kick starts your metabolism for the day," and stuff like that. I'm not eating huge amounts the night before, so it's nothing to do with that.
Should I make myself eat some sort of breakfast, or keep doing what I've been doing? I've been this way for a few years now. It usually takes me a good 3 hours to become hungry.
Say you adopt a kid and then you find out that this kid has some psychological or learning disabilities that were unknown to you before the adoption was finalized. Say you weren't prepared to deal with that kind of thing so you dissolved the adoption. Should you have to pay child support?
We bought a Wii! This is my first console since my Atari 2600 that I got for Christmas when I was 7.
I have no idea what games are good. TQC, can you recommend games to me?
I have played Mario Kart and loved it. We bought Mario Kart, Wii Fit and Wii Sports. All three of us (Me, Mom & Dad) like silly Pop Cap games like PvZ, Peggle, Zuma, Bejewelled, etc. I wouldn't be averse to some sort of shooter type game, but FPS makes me seasick.
What are some things that about yourself that you try to avoide telling people, not because you're embarrassed or ashamed, but because you get so sick of explaining yourself, or you're sick of people's stock answers?
Hey guys. I've been working at the same seaside restaurant for three years and the playlist is getting a bit repetitive. My boss said I can add some songs to the mix. What should I add? Must be sort of family friendly. To give you an idea we play things like James Taylor, Jimmy Buffet, Otis Redding, Bob Marley, Al Green, Jack Johnson during the day then we spice it up a bit at night with te likes of Kid Rock, Sublime, Counting Crows, Dave Matthews, Eddy Grant, Gorillaz.
My parents are really into privacy and aren't really that social. Ever since elementary school, they preferred I not bring friends over our apartment and instead encouraged me to go hang out/play outside or go into the city (we live 5 minutes from Manhattan) when I was older. I never cared because I always thought my apartment was boring anyway. All my friends think this is the weirdest thing in the world, and constantly bug me about it, but I really don't think it's that odd. TQC, do you think not having people over my parent's apartment is weird?
Were you allowed to have junk food in your house while you were growing up? My parents have always been very anti-junk food so we never have things like butter, pastries, cookies, chips, soda, etc. I'm pretty sure that's why I don't ever eat/drink those things now, and actually dislike eating them.
Does anyone know if you login to your MSN/Hotmail email on a mobile web browser if it logs you into MSN Messenger like it does when you login on a normal web browser? I realize you can disable it but I was wondering whether or not you have it disabled, will it turn on when you log on your mobile device.
I live in northern Phoenix, AZ and for the past couple weeks have been getting messages from people making sure I'm safe due to the wildfires. In the past I (and other people I know) have gotten comments like "what's it like living in the middle of nowhere?" and "do you have to ride horses to the trading post?" in complete sincerity. I live in the middle of a large city.
What're some common or just plain bizarre misconceptions about the state/area you live in by people who are not from there?
My cat has – according to the vet – some litterbox-based anxiety and we have to get a new litter and box asap. Spam me with your favorite litters and boxes and a brief explanation why you love them so.
Alternatively (or if cat questions aren't your style) is it weird to enjoy eating salt plain or to get headaches in air conditioned cars?
TQC, my dad had a coworker who brought a pet into work today and he doesn't remember what it was but he wants one. It was from New Zealand or Australia, about six inches long, and he said it looked like a hamster or a chipmunk, and was very friendly. It also went wild when it got to play in shredded paper. I asked if it had wings, thinking it was a sugar glider, but he said that it didn't. He did say that it "jumped" from person to person. Any idea what the hell it could be?
Your sister's SO posts on another girl's Facebook page complimenting her on how "fine" she is. You are friends with the girl in question, but your sister is not (so your sister is unable to see the post). What (if anything) do you do?
I feel like not getting involved is probably the best course of action here, but I'm not sure.
Is Gyllenhaal pronounced with a hard G or a soft G? I always assumed the former but recently heard somebody say the latter. I don't come from a place where the name is mentioned (at least, not verbally).
Which Gyllenhaal do you prefer, Jake or Maggie?
What is your favourite movie starring a Gyllenhaal?
Ever since I got this Samsung Instinct, my pictures have been crap. I've gone through two memory cards to see if it was the memory card.
When I take the picture, it says it's saved and all is well and good. Some pictures turn out okay. Others, not so much... The weird thing is, when I see the thumbnails on the computer, they look fine, but when I open the picture, it's completely distorted.
See below the cut for examples.
( Collapse ) It's happening with most of my pictures, and so far, I'm not able to find a solution. Does anybody have any ideas? Should I just trash this phone and get a new one? I don't want to have to carry my camera around.
Do you have any ideas of what my best friend and I can do for our 21st birthdays in December?
We want to take a trip. She wants to go to Hawaii but that sounds too expensive for me. I'm thinking a three day Mexico cruise but I don't know if the weather will be unfavorable in winter. We're not really interested in going to Vegas. We live in Los Angeles for reference and I'm aiming for something around $500.
