Have you ever had someone close to you confess that they want to cheat on their SO?
How do you handle being stuck in the middle with stuff like this?
soooo Scooters uncle the parolee lives with us and he has this stench of funky balls, stale cigerettes and ass sweat....
how do I go about telling him to scrub his funky ass?
also, he has athletes foot....is this tranferable to furniture and floors if he walks around bare foot in my house? right now he's curled up on Scooters leather recliner bare foot and i'm worried that the funk will trandfer to us somehow
I've had this post before but I think it's fun...
will you post pictures of your favorite nail polish colors?
Do you have a person in your life that always seems be around when bad things happen?
Like, for example, hell breaks loose when you're at the theater watching Snow White or when you are working in the laboratory. You happen to turn around and see that person on both instances. You have to wonder if they had some thing to do with it.
Why is it that the only thing that helps with depression is getting up and doing stuff (cleaning, baking, interacting with people), but the depression itself is so damn demoralizing that all you have the energy to do is sit on the couch and watch Cupcake Wars?
Working professionals of TQC:
When you are looking for work and are enlisting the help of a recruiter, do you contact them first if you find an ad for a job, or do you submit your resume on your own?
I've been asked by a recruiter to contact him about any positions I find, to see if he has any contacts with that company. I think he's just trying to pad his pocket, but on the other hand, having your resume go to a specific person is more helpful than it going into the huge public pile. Thoughts?
My hamburger expired yesterday without me noticing. If it doesn't smell off, will I die if I cook it and freeze it (with the intention to eat it later, I don't just cook and freeze meat for funsies)?
I promise not to hold any of you accountable if I do die.
On a first date, do you feel awkward letting the other person pay? I really hate it, even when the guy insists, because it makes me feel guilty if I'm not interested in a second date. (Even if I am, I hate it, but I feel like in that case there's more of an opportunity to make it even.) Especially if the other person does not make more than I do. I know it's supposed to be gentlemanly and a kind gesture, but I find it automatically assumes gender roles I'm not interested in and puts me in the position of debt, which I don't like (especially if the dude expects me to put out).
I have a tattoo that I'm considering covering - a tattoo that I got with a really good friend of mine (but we were dating at the time). Aesthetically, I've grown to dislike the tattoo so my reason for covering it is purely that - I still cherish the memory the tattoo gives me. My question is, should I ask the person I got the tattoo with first to make sure they wouldn't be incredibly offended? If you had matching tattoos with someone would you be offended if the other person covered theirs?
ETA: Worded oddly - not ask, but tell them beforehand. Permission isn't needed.
Is that "fair trade" nonsense still alive and well?
i mean FAIR TRADE...not FREE TRADE....I haven't had my Trader Joe's organic fair trade coffee yet...lol
Is it just as offensive for someone to say "you're so thin/skinny" as it is for someone to say "you're so fat/overweight"?
I think this has been asked recently but...
Have you ever eaten anywhere that has been on TV? (i.e. Food Network, Travel Channel etc)
I have twice. I ate at the Green Mesquite BBQ in Austin, TX - I actually found them by searching out places that HAD been on TV so I would know my Texas BBQ was going to be some good shit, lol. Also last night I went to the Taco Bus in Tampa, FL. They make your food IN A BUS!!! :D Both places were on Diners, Drive-Ins, and Dives at some point.
Do you care about the NFL playoffs this weekend?
If yes who are you rooting for?
Also....who will win the superbowl this year?
Make you prediction.
I'm starting a big crochet project soon (making a blanket!) and I'd like to watch some movies while I do so! I'm not a big movie watcher by any means, so I'm wondering: what movies do you think everyone should see at least once? What is your favorite movie of all time? Or your top 5?
I like fairly light-hearted, cheerful movies mostly, so can you recommend any movies in that style as well? I like comedies best.
Basically, what should I watch?
Meatballs or tacos for dinner?
I am starving!
eta: I'm making tacos. Less time consuming, and I discovered I didn't have any eggs. But, Meatball Tacos sound interesting!!!
How many tacos can you comfortably eat in one sitting?
For reference, I am using Mexican-style soft corn tortilla tacos, the kind that just has some meat and onions, but you can also use Taco Bell tacos or w/e.
I am going for a new record of 4 today.
What have you learned this week?
Have you ever had to interact with someone who could be classified as "flirts with everyone around her, but is completely oblivious to it" on a regular basis at work/school?
Has this person ever macked on the person you had feelings for? How did it make you feel?
How do you deal with persons such as this?
With your current skills, would large amounts of sex in high school have been possible?
My man person and I are moving into an apartment together. Obviously this is good news, but I've never lived with the person I was dating before.
We work at the same company so we understand each others' finances, for the most part. We keep the same general schedule. But I'm still nervous that something will go horribly wrong. So for those of you who live with a significant other type person, what should I be prepared for? Is there anything that will probably annoy this shit out of me that I should practice ignoring?
Will you post an item you think every awesome person should own in their real life grown-up apartment?
what the eff do i make for dinner?
Do any of you know how we could watch tonight's Lions game tomorrow? We have no way to record it and no way to actually watch it live tonight.
What's new in TQC? Any drama I missed? How's your life in general.
Catch me up on what happened in the last week, just got internet in my new apartment a day back.
My cocker spaniel is 12, but other than that very spritely and people always confuse her for a puppy. We took her on a long walk today, which she was fine with. However, her back leg has started shaking when she's stood still. She seems fine walking on it and is otherwise her usual self.
What's going on?
How do *you* get over/move past a difficult breakup?
The government tells us inflation isn't a problem. Obviously, they haven't bought milk lately. I paid $3.59 for a gallon today. How much is milk where you live?
Are you for-or-against the decriminalization, or legalization of marijuana?
Anyone want to play word association?
next weekend i've got a 20 hour amtrak ride by myself and i've never done anything like that before. any advice? things i should know? firsthand stories?
If you could have any animal as a pet without having to worry about illegalities or it possibly trying to kill you, what would you pick?
can you share some gifs? can we have a gif party?
is it easier to gewt sexy times if you are drkno or sopbre?
i'm not the brightest crayon when it comes to politics but I wanna be !
can you give me a crash course in politics?
or at least explain to me the debate i'm watching?
Do you know any people that you are attracted to sexually at a low level, but have no desire to escalate your relationship to actual sex/dating? And it sort of plateaus and stays at a constant, sort of like friendzoning, except there is a minor amount of attraction constantly present?
In my case, someone who you're attracted to, and they are clearly attracted to you as well, and you flirt/indulge in other small exchanges, but you don't really feel like actually initiating any "real" action.
Have you ever done any genealogy/ancestry research? What did you find? Any tips?
What celebrity (or individual in the public eye) are you the most embarrassed to be attracted to? I'm sitting here watching Kim & Kourtney Take New York and am wondering why the hell I find Kris Humphries attractive. :/ Oh, my life.
Don't know/don't care? What potential presidential candidate would you vote for if you had to vote someone in right now? Why? (I'm certainly not here to start any sort of debate, btw! I'm just curious.)
