What's the last thing you did entirely for yourself?
You know how people ask what they should do about the person from their past who can't get over them and won't stop calling/texting/emailing/facebooking/whatever? We tell them to ignore them. Move on. Get over them, and leave them behind.
.....what if you're the person they're trying to forget?
Where do you turn when you need someone to talk to and your friends aren't available?
do you like to have any kind of background noise when you go to sleep, like music or tv?
do you think of any specific songs/albums/artists/shows as being your personal sleeptime soundtrack?
I can't stop watching videos about dogs!
TQCers, what is your favourite dog breed? If you could have one dog, what would it be? What do you think you'd name it?
Personally? I would adore an Irish Wolfhound- Calhoun for a boy, Solrun for a girl!
DK/DC/Ew, dogs: I have no question for you, dog haters! Away with you!
I suddenly find myself in possession of 2 32oz bags of baby carrots. What the heck am I going to do with all of them?!
DK/DC/That's a lot of carrots!: How was your weekend?
I have a lunch date today! I have the day off, but he's working so it will be during his lunch break. What should I wear?!
Ever had chicken and waffles before? What did you think (or what do you think if you haven't)?
What's something you should know how to do but don't?
I don't know how to flirt.
I was watching an I.D. special on some dude who killed his wife. They used some evidence found on his computer against him. He had done a Google search for "how to shoot yourself un-lethally in the chest" (he ended up shooting himself to make it look like a mugger had shot at both him and his wife). He had also downloaded the song "I Used to Love Her but I Had to Kill Her" the night he killed her then deleted it before handing his laptop over to authorities. My question is: after erasing your history and deleting files, how can people still find out these things from examining your hard drive?
tl;dr: fuckin' computers, how do they work?
Have you ever vomited on an airplane? Have you used a barf bag?
Why do hair stylists usually dye a person's hair before they cut it? It seems like that's a waste of dye.
Have you ever faked a Doctor's certificate? How did that work out for you? Did your school/university ring to check with the doctor?
Does anyone use US Bank for savings and checking? Do you have any comments on way or the other about your experiences?
So last night I turned off my macbook pro after not doing so for a long time. In the morning when I plugged in the charger, the laptop automatically turned on. Is there something wrong with the computer or is there a way to turn off this setting?
If you were a ghost, what type would you be?
I'd be one of the really creepy ones. I'd hide in a house and wait for a family with children to move in. I'd befriend the kids, and the parents would notice their kids had imaginary friends and it wouldn't be a big deal, but then it would get creepy because I'd have the kids repeat stuff to their parents and that shouldn't know, like, "My friend says the person who lived here before shot himself." Then I'd start banging on walls and stuff. It'd be so much fun!
So, I'm graduating college in May and am scheduling my classes for spring semester. I already have 17 credits and the top out is 18. I have a class that I would absolutely love to take, but I can't because I'm graduating and can't afford the fees that come with going over 18 credits.
Is it ridiculous/out of line for me to e-mail the professor and ask to simply sit in on her lecture unofficially? :/
DK/DC: If someone paid you to go back to school, what would you study?
1. I got an email from Youtube inviting me to monetize one of my videos with Google AdSense. It's an original video, BUT it's overlaid with audio of "Yakety Sax" (the Benny Hill theme). There are about a bzillion videos on Youtube with this song... but as far as I know, it's not in the public domain? The artist has only been dead for four years, so the copyright is still standing. I believe Youtube's policy is, anything can be posted unless the copyright holder/record label demands it be taken down. That doesn't seem to be happening with this song on any of the bzillion videos it's used in... but if I apply to put ads on the video and they decline the application, there's a good chance the video will be removed from Youtube altogether. This song is used on television all the time, but it's probably paid for when they use it. So... Should I apply for it and potentially make a little money off it, with the risk that if it's not approved my video will be removed from the internet, or should I leave it as is, not make any ad money but keep the video up? What would you do? (I have another video with ads [original video and audio] that brings in about $3 to $4 a month - it's not much but hey, it's something!)
2. Totally unrelated - anybody out there know anything about tobacciana? I have a cigarette case I'm trying to date and Google is no help, so I figured maybe somebody here might have a clue? :)
Do you know anyone who is a vet tech? Is it difficult to get over seeing stuff like injured animals?
What would you do, if you suddenly knew all the relevant schooling involved?
What's with the whole, 'it's fancy dress, therefore I must dress as sluttily as I can' thing?
ETA: I'm thinking the whole Mean Girls-esque slutty santa/sexy vampire sort of costumes.
I'm going to an under the sea party on friday, and want to go as a shipwrecked/drowned pirate.
Other than halloweeny make up and possibly a few fishes stuck to me, what make up/accessories should I have?
Any better costume suggestions?
We are doing homemade pizzas for my birthday Saturday. I plan to make a Mediterranean style one with green pesto, mozzarella, feta, olives, tomatoes, red onions and artichoke hearts. what are some other unique ones I could make?
Have you ever been arrested?
My grandma has been arrested twice in the past ten years for shoplifting. She's almost 80...
My daughter is about to finish the Harry Potter series, and she's wondering what to read next. What do you suggest for a very bright 11 year old girl, TQC?
She likes her stories modern, so I can't talk her into Anne Shirley or Laura Ingalls Wilder. No Twilight. She enjoys wizards and magic and sci-fi/fantasy. She's thinking about studying fashion and costume design when she gets older.
Unrelated second question from my kid: do you play Minecraft? What do you like about it? How about those Creepers? (She wants to be one for Halloween...)
We have a puppy that's about six months old, and although she's gotten better at it, she still pees inside the house a lot. Thing is, it isn't always because we don't take her outside in time--she generally lets us know by whining and barking, but there are times where she just goes and lets loose inside the house.
About how long will this last? I've given her treats when she goes outside, and I'm sure she knows that it's the proper place, so I'm assuming a lot of this is a physical inability to hold it in.
Are you food adventurous? Do you like to try new things, or are you happy with the same things you've always eaten?
We tried out a new Turkish restaurant today. It was so good. We had homemade hummus, and we got their kafta (beef and lamb) "sandwiches" which were actually wraps. The tahini and tzatziki was also homemade, and really good. I've had Greek/Turkish before, but this place's claim to fame is being mostly homemade, not packaged, so I was impressed.
TQC, rank these measurements in terms of how great a volume they represent, from smallest to largest: assload, shitload, shit ton, ass ton (my son insists that he hears "ass ton" all the time).
TQC, what do you do to get over a crush that cannot go anywhere? As is, I'm feeling pretty crappy.
Ladies and gents, i am at a school where teachers are encouraged to dress for Halloween. And maybe we get a little competitive with it.
Can you think of a theme for costumes that would work for 2 men and 4 women that is middle school appropriate?
I live in an earthquake prone area. sometimes i imagine i am experiencing a temblor...when i am in fact not.
how can i tell real quakes from false so i stop running naked in panic outside???????????
Dear TQC, would you rather
1. dine at this SUPER luxe and high end restaurant/club (those very trendy, "it" places) with fantastic ambience and view, but style of food not to your fancy
2. dine at a five star hotel, buffet style, with your favourite kinds of foods
given that the quality and price of both meals are the same?
My SO left yesterday. Walked out with all of his things in tow. I'm not a big mess because, honestly, we've done this before and things have sucked lately.
But my doggy is a big mess and I can tell she's upset he isn't here. Is there anything I can do to make her happy?
Are you into a really rare or esoteric hobby? I'm into ham radio (my boyfriend got me into it) and people are always like, "That still exists?"
If you're not into a really rare hobby, what are your hobbies? I'm also a big fan of writing, reading, going for walks and cooking. And horses.
Do you like wearing bangles?
They drive me bonkers.
Do you love me?
Are you playing your love games with me?
I'm so sick and relief won't be here until around 4:30 tomorrow afternoon, before which I might just die.
Can you give me some ways to keep myself occupied (while stuck in bed/on the couch) until then? I've already watched every Will Smith movie in existence, so something besides TV and/or alien robots would be nice.
What are some "dating don'ts" you've experienced firsthand?
Protip: don't ask your underemployed date how hard she's actually been looking for a job and get upset when she wants to go the fuck home that very instant
A genie appears and gives you one wish. But it's a fickle genie and it has stipulations.
1. You cannot wish for money, or anything that directly generates money. But, you can wish for things that require a great deal money (ie debts paid off, vacation, Ferrari, etc). You're allowed to wish for a higher-paying job, but keep in mind, you only have one wish, so it has to be something you think you can maintain. You can wish to be the CEO of Apple, but you can't also wish that you had all the knowledge that would allow you to be a CEO that lasts more than a week on the job (you'd have to possess that already).
2. You must wish for something that is physically possible. It doesn't have to be likely, but it must be possible (no brining people back from the dead or superpowers or anything like that).
What would you wish for? Or do you tell the fickle genie to go fuck itself and its rules?
If you were a genie, what kind of bullshit stipulations would you put on your masters' wishes?
Do any of you have ADD/ADHD?
How are you treating it?
What is the most annoying thing about it?
What is something about your body that you are insecure about?
What's your lucky number?
Does it have a certain significance to you?
I have long hair (almost to my waist). I also have a job interview tomorrow. Should I pull it up in a bun, straighten it and leave it down, or straighten it and pull it back at the nape of my neck?
Shoe-wise, should I wear pumps, dress shoes with a squared off toe or mary jane style flats? (Will be paired with black dress pants)
What should I tell them if they ask me about myself? Should I make up a super hero style bio?
What's something that you know a lot about?
Will you answer questions about it for people that maybe don't know so much?
my husband fell asleep on the couch after work. It's now 11. o clock pm. Should I wake him to come to actual bed or should I leave him sleeping? He has blankets already and there is no chance of getting any. If you were in the same position as him what would you prefer?
What does being in love feel like?
This is a ridiculous question but I've never been in this position before. I have always been someone who has gone years in between dates. I now am casually dating 3 different people. They are all awesome people and I know at some point I will probably have to narrow it down to one. How do you choose???
So I took the kitties to the vet today because thier eyes were crustied shut and they have colds and 414.00 later they have anti-botics and shots and all sorts of other crap I was told they needed to survive.
Now the mother won't nurse them :(
DId I piss her off by caring for her babies?
Should I put them back across the street so she can see I didn't kitten nap them?
I bought bottles and kitten formula and they are sleeping in a laundry basket in the basement,
Which one should I feed first? the illest? or should I rotate the feedings? they each have thier own bottle but to feed them all at once might be tricky.
In your opinion, what do you think is the best movie that has come out in the past year or 2?
What "qualifications" do you use to define a relationship as "serious"? Is it the amount of time that's passed, experiences, etc.?
