I'm okay with walking slowly on them, but I'm a bit terrified of letting go of the handles and trying to go any faster than like 3mph.
DK/DC: What's in your favourite salad?
ETA - What did you score on the SAT's?
"What the heck does it mean to 'Suck my Flute'?"
how does one respond to that?
What goes good with cabbage and onions?
Besides pickling, what can I use fresh dill in?
most random thing done at a beach?
in your opinion.
What are some reasons why you wouldn't sleep?
Does anyone have a credit card company they deal with which they can recommend to a *very* small business?
Does anyone here Spaceghetto?
Those who did and stopped: did you just stop trying to find the new ghetto after a million changes?
Also: why did my computer just make laughing noises? The only tabs open are TQC. ARE YOU LAUGHING AT ME?!
Since I was a kid myself I have always known that I didn't want children. However others told me, and I told myself, that surely one day i would want them.
But I continued to not want them. I have told my husband this from the very beginning of our relationship. he always was on the same page as me, albeit with a mention or two of "Maybe someday, loooong after we have traveled" etc.
He has been talking about kids more and more and yesterday told me he was thinking the other day about us having a baby and that he wanted one. :O
The tick has never come for me. In fact after a rough two years and I think I want kids even less. I have anxiety, depression, and other issues I don't like to talk about. I don't want to be pregnant, alienated and out of control of my own body.
I am so afraid of how to deal with this. What would you do, TQC? Have you been in a similar situation? Please, any advice?
I want to buy this cover up for my vacation to Florida
It's on sale and it's the perfect colors/length for me BUT most of the reviews are saying it bleeds everywhere! Even after washing several times! Any ideas on treatments I can use to keep it from bleeding?

I'm currently in California right now. I live in a city with decent public transit, so I've never had to buy a car. I've also been unemployed for two years, so...couldn't really afford one, anyway.
I have accepted a job in Alabama. I will NEED a car there, since you know...they have no public transit where I'm going to be. OK, they HAVE it, but it's complete shit.
So, the way I see it, I have two options.
( Collapse )
That's all I can think of right now.
Soooo, TQC, what would you do?
What was the last awkward situation you were in and how did you handle it?
Last night my fiance/husband/whatever were at a bar, he wears a ring and I don't have one yet and when he got up to go to the bathroom the slightly tipsy woman next to me went on a rampage about how I'm a homewrecker and a slut.
I totally went with it, when he came back I said "So...where does your wife think you are tonight" while waggling my eyebrow..he played along and the lady got so mad she got up and left.
Lololol, thank you Modern Family for influencing my real life.
what should i get at the store?
i'm pretty poor since i'm unemployed and living on unemployment and a little savings. i'm also SUPER picky. i don't eat a lot of dairy or meat(mostly just beef and chicken).
so far this is what i have:
You are released from jail with no apology, given only the belongings you had when you were put in jail and sent on your way.
What would you do? Would you try to rebuild your life? Would you try to find the "witness" that accused you of the crime?
detailed and insightful OR as short as possible?
2 5-sentence paragraphs OR 5 2-sentence paragraphs?
(what would make you most likely to like the prospective student?)
What kind of jar is it? (peanut butter, pickle, beer ball...)
How much is in it right now?
How often do you cash your change in ?
Our jar is a large pickle jar and it has about 60 dollars or so in it and at the end of every month I take all the money to the bank and start over...
1. What is the common explanation for the pain referral associated with trigger points and myofascial pain?
2. What is a second explanation for this phenomenon?
I CAN'T FIND ANY EXPLANATION FOR THIS FUCKING PHENOMENON, LET ALONE A SECOND EXPLANATION!!
I'm thinking of using ebooks for school instead of buying real life books.
However, we have very different ideas of respect, and he's made me promise that I'll let him kiss my feet whenever we meet. It makes me very uncomfortable, and even though I've explained that that sort of thing doesn't happen around here, he didn't get the hint. What do I do?
dk/dc: how do people show respect in your cultural background? how do people accept respect?
"Nobody chose their religion.
If grew up in a Christian environment, you'll probably become Christian, and in an athiest environment, an atheist. Now that's changing real fast because of the free access to information kids have to the internet. Now instead of going "Daddy, where do babies come from?", they'll go "Daddy, why are you Christian when you could be Buddhist?"
But nobody has any real choice in any of it. By the time you have "concious choice", whatever choice you make are already shaped by pre-natal conditions - whether your biological mother was a drinker, whether she was around people who smoked, whether people argued and thus projected all kinds of energies to the infant, what kinds of things they say to the infants over and over (eg. "I love you" or "God loves us all") - that by the time you're even aware of "concious choice", it's all already conditioned. And everything from there on are all conditioned responses. Even a person's choice to convert from a religion is the result of all the conditioning that occurred before that choice, as well as the environment, and thus conditioning, of that very moment.
To the extent that you realize this and discover something that transcends all conditioning, the human drama of things like religion and politics (which nobody really wants to care about) will keep on happening."
how should i do it? i was thinking my first and middle initial and my last name but that's taken, so i added my birth year. is that good enough or should i not have the year? i've been dicking around since i was 19, i have no idea what i'm doing! lolol.
does anyone not have plans tomorrow? i didn't get invited to anything. i never get invited to Memorial Day/July 4th/Labor Day stuff :(
how thick do you like the patty to be?
My parents used to drive into Iowa to recycle cans... we live in Nebraska - so it's like a half-hour drive.
Bonus points for saying why.
My answer in the comments
So I called the guy on Friday and got his voicemail. At least, I think I did. It didn't say his name, just his phone number. I left a message, and he hasn't called me back. :/
The thing is, the last time we hung out before I moved away, I remember him telling me he was thinking about switching wireless carriers, so I'm not even sure if the phone number I called is his anymore.
We're friends on Facebook (but he doesn't seem particularly active on it). Should I send him a message? When?
...what if he didn't call me back because he doesn't like me? :C
What contests should I enter?
Have you ever acquired the laugh of someone else?
I realized the other day that I have picked up my roommate's laugh. It's kind of explosive and sounds fake sometimes. I use it when I find something more delightful than actually funny... How do I change it?
What's your favorite thing to order there?
Whats your favourite 90's One Hit Wonder from this list?
What do you put in your potato salad when you make it?
What's something you can't stand the smell of?
(My cousin just made a Fiesta Chicken pizza and it smells like vomit, to me. Every time.)
The sixth graders at my bus stop told me that if you eat paper, your heart turns green and you die. I believed it for years.
I'm about to go on a Sephora/Nordstrom binge and I could really use some advice on what I should purchase.

what do i do? he likes me to look at him but it's hard to do so without laughing. aside from that he's really fucking good at sexing.
What is your favorite T.Z episode? Mine is the "The Lonely" about the convict who is sent to a remote asteroid, to live by himself and he gets a female robot companion. And when the police come to rescue the man after his sentence, the convict must leave behind the robot who he has grown to love.
It was very hard to choose to watch this marathon. It's competing against an I Love Lucy marathon!
Also, if you have never seen an episode, will you give it a chance? It's on the Scy Fy channel and its awesome. Reallly.
Also: if you've ever had it: what do you do to make it feel better?
I've gotten a few exercises to try but most websites say to elevate the foot of the affected leg and stop doing what hurts the knee. Well, it's both my knees and I can't stop walking or taking showers, so....
Should I pick a grad school closer to the city in hopes that maybe somehow, some magical way, I'll be able to get an apartment? (Even though I'll be teaching an hour away?)
Choose a grad school closer to home but far less fun, because I'm probably going to be stuck living at home forever?
How soon did you go to grad school after college? Did you have to go in a certain amount of time?
Teachers here are given five years to complete the degree.
dk/dc what film do you recommend to anyone?
