I'm not sure if this will go anywhere. It's really late at night and I feel like playing a game instead of going to bed. Will you play a game with me, TQC?

Write a description of one of your favorite characters from a movie or book and let people try to guess who it is! It can be one sentence, or several. It can be a physical description, or a description about the role they play in the story, or of their moral characteristics...anything. Go!

From about 9PM last night until at least 4AM this morning it sounded like someone was blowing a whistle somewhere around. There was no pattern to the whistle blows, but it happened regularly all night long. I wasn't the only one who heard it, because my boyfriend made a comment about it when he came to bed at 4AM.

TQC, why was there a whistle blowing all night?

So I have what I think is a cold. There's no fever, no aches, but I am blowing my nose and coughing up mucus (as far as I can tell, it's clear), although it's less than it was since I woke up a half hour ago.

I have a 6-hour shift at work today (I work in retail, on register and the sales floor) that I *really* don't want to miss because it's 6 hours, and I also called out a couple weeks ago because I was sick then too. I'm not the best at taking care of myself when I need to, or knowing when I need to. Should I call out? 

Edit: I'd be more comfortable calling out tomorrow because I only have a 4hr shift.

Red Bubble or Skreened? I've post some of my artwork on Skreened and surprisingly made quite a bit of money. However, Red Bubble lets you put your designs on black shirts without looking janky. Has anyone here had experience with one or both? I'd like some other opinions. Or perhaps there's a better option (not really interested in Threadless however).

What activities do you and your best friend(s) routinely enjoy that are specific to your friendship?

Me and my bff both enjoy Bollywood movies, so we get together and watch those a lot. I also give her makeovers frequently for funsies.

Triggery Triggerness

Is anyone else on Livejournal getting sick and tired of all these people demanding trigger warnings on everything?

I'm a member of a site dedicated to disturbed, messed-up nature facts, and I saw someone calling the following post triggery:

If people out there have such bad PTSD, then they should either be constantly sedated and put in a mental health facility, or (probably more likely) they should seek counseling for their Histrionic Personality Disorder. :-P

Does anyone have any good nail care tips? I've just recently stopped biting mine after doing so my entire life so I'm not exactly sure of what I should be doing. They're weak and uneven because I don't know how to properly file them. All I do is try to keep them painted.

Tongue Piercings

I've had my tongue pierced for over ten years now, and I'd estimate that I've swallowed probably 30-50 of the balls from the studs in that time.  Basically it happens every few months when they wear out and I don't notice until it's too late.  Do you think this sounds like an exceptionally high number of swallowed balls, given the length of time I've had my piercing and the *ahem* type of balls I'm referring to?

If you have any oral piercings, how often do you swallow pieces?

What's the weirdest thing you've ever swallowed?

A few guy friends and I are having a "scary movie party" on Saturday to drink and watch some scary movies.  Thus far we've got The Strangers and The Shining on the plate and are looking for some more.  We really want stuff that will scare the bejesus out of us.

So TQC, what do you think is the scariest scary move out there?  Any recommendations?

Does anybody here study anthropology? If so, what does anthropology look at exactly? How does it differ from biological anthropology?

I'm looking at ideas for post-grad study (next year) and I'm thinking that anthropology might be the go, but I'm trying to decide whether anthropology or biological-anthropology is closer to what I'm aiming to go into (they're two different courses) and the questions I want to answer. FWIW my soon to be finished undergrad degree is in the social sciences.

Have you ever sprained your ankle?

My husband sprained his ankle [we went to the hospital] and we're doing everything the doctor said but it's gotten really swollen. Is this normal?

What was the last injury you had? How did it limit your day to day activites?

Boring laptop question, guys.

My dad's Macbook keeps getting stuck at the white apple logo screen with the spinning wheel. We've tried a hard shutdown/restart to no avail. As far as I know, he hasn't done anything different to it in all the time he's had it. I have no idea where the installation disc might be, so working it off the disc isn't really an option. Help?

Have you ever been to a convention dedicated to a certain tv show/movie/fandom? What was it like? Did you know people going or did you go on your own? Was it worth it?

I ask because I just found out this random obscure 90s TV show that I loved when I was in high school is having a convention in August. I just got into watching the DVDs again. I kinda want to go but am worried it will just be 20 awkward people hanging out in a hotel convention centre being awkward.

I have enough reward points at Papa John's to get a free large pizza. The delivery fee is $1.75, which I'm paying with a card. All I have is $2 cash on me, is that enough of a tip on a free pizza? The drive is probably like 3-5 minutes and it's not raining or anything outside.

My mom doesn't like tattoos for religious reasons, and I don't think my dad cares much.
I've had a tattoo since July, but they don't know this because a) I didn't tell them and b) it's on my ribs, so they haven't seen it.

Next weekend we are going to a waterpark, meaning I have to wear a swimsuit. Meaning they will see my tattoo.

How should I go about telling them?

For the record I'm 19 and living in their house for my freshman year of college.

Are you friends with any pranksters? What sort of pranks do they do? One guy at work is always pranking people, which means he's always getting pranked. I'm not sure I get it, myself.

Cheesemongers of TQC

I'm having another party! I'm taking things a little more low key this time and am planing on making a killer cheese plate. There will be 10 people coming so I'd like about 3 or 4 different kinds of cheeses. I'll also have red grapes, cantaloupe, sliced french baguette, and Carrs variety cracker box. Beverages will include Champagne and Raspberry Vodka cocktails (one with ginger beer and another with Chocolate liquor) and whatever other beverages other people bring.

If you were invited to my party, what kind of cheese(s) would you want?

How should I tone up all of this loose skin I have left from losing 40 pounds? I have a bangin' body hiding underneath all of this stuff but I don't know what I should be doing and the internet has conflicting ideas.
