Would you like to help me choose a new car, TQC?

I'm in the market for a mid-size four-door sedan. I'll probably get one that's a year or two old. Top price range is about $25k. Fuel efficiency isn't an enormous concern. I need to fit two carseats in there comfortably. Any suggestions? I'm thinking a Honda Accord or Nissan Altima, but I'm sort of car-clueless. I currently have a Hyundai Accent but it's too small - my husband will inherit it.

A friend of mine has arranged a study group for a project we are all working on individually. There are five of us going.

I've come down with the flu, and I didn't sleep last night.

I feel like it will be rude if I don't go. My friend knows I've been struggling this year, so I'm worried she mainly organised this to help me. I don't want to give this to anyone either, though.

Should I go or should I cancel?

Help me made this decision TQC :(

I use to be addicted to the web sites TMZ and Perezhilton. I would log on to their sites at least once a day but now I can go days without visiting the site. I no longer really care. I am still addicted to the net because of my smart phone but do know what sites to go to. AfterEllen is one site I like but it is not updated often enough for me. The Huffingtonpost is just to big of an app for my blackberry to handle. So my question is what sites do you just have to visit? What sites are you addicted to? And please feel free to share a link.

I don't know where else to ask and maybe get a straight answer so I'm trying this community.

I'm currently 9 weeks and 6 days pregnant got the first ultrasound today and I just can't make anything of it, can any of you see anything?

http://pics.livejournal.com/dfollia/pic/000238ew/

Those of you who might be already mothers and might have experience or if there is health practitioner out there what do you see with your expert eye?

This is the only picture my doctor gave me.

I'm afraid there might be something wrong, so serious answers only please.

UPDATE ONE YEAR LATER: The doctor as it turns out was a total jerk, asshole etc. He handed me a picture of a miscarriage in progress. There was nothing that could have been done to prevent it at the time of my appointment. But he still lead me on, wanting me to check my HcG levels, and other stupid tests that were worthless and wasteful at that point. By the next time I saw him he had a prescription of Misoprostol ready for me so that my uterus could finish clearing up, and told me only then that I was having a miscarriage. (The bleeding wasn't constant and I kept in touch with him) Couldn't he had said that on the first appointment? Why did he have to wait, and worry me and put me through all this for a couple of days? I just think it would have been better if he had said something was wrong from the beginning, instead of telling me there was hope.

Four years ago when I moved to Canada I had to give up three of my lizards. The guy I gave them to is awesome and is probably doing a much better job than I am. He also happens to be one of the main reptile guys at a big zoo. Anyway, he told me I was allowed to visit them anytime I was in town, but I've never been able to. I'm visiting my hometown next weekend and am just curious, would it be weird for me to contact him again after so many years?

Part of me is petrified they may not be alive anymore, but another part of me really, really misses them.

My hair is currently about half way down my back and looks like a cross between Dr Emmet Brown's hair from 'Back to the Future' and Helena Bonham Carter's hair from... Helena Bonham Carter's every day. It's also thick and naturally blonde, sheds so much in the shower that I only wash it every few days (two minutes of washing, five minutes of combing, twenty minutes of removing long blonde hair from from arse). It's actually naturally straight but product doesn't really work on it so I wear my hair in a pony tail every day. Here is a pictureCollapse )


I'm debating cutting it back to shoulder length (and keeping their hair long at the front) but I don't know. Will u post some photos of cool haircuts that are medium to long to long so I can decide what to do? I want my hair to suit my personality and be easier to manage but at the same time I love long hair.

I have this FB friend, who I originally met through TQC. We hung out a couple times in real life, before she moved to Houston for family reasons. I didn't get to know her that well, but we got along decent enough. We kept in touch here and there through email. Several months after she left, she stated that she had lost a lot of weight. She then started hitting on me, making sexual advances that would be acted upon when she moved back to LA. She even sent me photographs of her in her underwear. All of this unsolicited. I never encouraged her or flirted back really. I was never interested in her romantically, and it little to do with her weight. We just didn't connect in that way. Because she was in Texas until she graduated, and I was in LA, I felt that I didn't have to really address that problem right away.

A couple days ago, she shot me a message in FB. She's in LA and she wants to meet up. Hmm. Did not know that was happening so soon. She's probably going to make more sexual advances on me. I don't really want to bang her, partly because there's another girl I've been seeing here and there. But we're not romantically involved (yet), so it's not like I can really use that as a get-out-of-nookie card.

My whole life, women I haven't been interested in have hit on me, and I've never been good at shooting them down. I generally just avoid them until they get the hint or lose interest, and I've thought about doing that with the Houston girl, but I'm a little too old to be playing that lame high school shit. So, that being said, what can I say to get out of this without hurting her feelings?

The Question Club

[psycthom]
So, I regularly post book reviews on Amazon, and I must confess I'm a bit of an addict.

One of the goals I wanted to achieve was to be an objective reviewer, not necessarily harsh, but someone that at least when I posted a good review, that it meant it was a good book.

I've been pretty lucky so far, I've received only a few comments about 'posting negative reviews with glee' and tend to get OK helpful votes even on -ve reviews

But nothing quite like this: http://www.amazon.com/review/RR2QT9AYTUAVP/ref=cm_cr_rdp_perm

In fairness I may have singled myself out here by having the only review on there (and yes I jumped right onto the last book of the series.) I have heard cautions before that posting, book and music reviews and be fraught with this kind of thing, simply due to the subjective nature of the biz, and fan's passion for their loved works.

But onto the question: Basically I've opted to defend my review and hold fast on the post (some reviewers would delete such a negatively received comment)

Good idea, bad idea? What do others likely more experienced in internet etiquette think?

TQC, it's getting warm now, and that means mosquitoes will be arriving soon. Bleck! I'm super allergic to mosquitoes -- their bites seriously swell up to about the size of a quarter, stay for at least a week, and itch so badly I literally cannot sleep.

Besides covering myself from head to toe during the summer, what else can I do to prevent getting bitten?

Also, I'm looking to hanging a mosquito net over my bed (since I mostly seem to get bitten at night). Any advice on how to do that when my ceiling is ridiculously high and the place I would need to hang it is right where the blades of my ceiling fan spin?

How many women here actually bother with make up on a day-to-day basis? If so, how much? Is it effected by your job and how you're expected to appear, or is it a personal choice? When you're out of work, do you put on more make up, or take it off? Inspired by a pop up questionaire that asked me what would 'make me consider' going without make up for a day - given I don't normally bother to wear it, the idea that 'going without' was some sort of novelty threw me a little.

What was your dream job as a child? What is your dream job now?

I had so many dream jobs. I wanted to be a business woman when I was younger because I always thought they looked so cool in their business suits and they always smelled nice.. Why them smelling nice was a factor, I'm not sure.. I always associated being a business woman with expensive perfumes.

I also wanted to work for Neopets. Actually, I still would like to work for Neopets.

I want to work in the entertainment business, preferably in the movie business. I'm not sure what I want to do but I love organizing things so maybe I can find something like that.. If the movie doesn't work out then I'd like to do some kind of social work, but I don't wanna be a social worker that is stuck in an office all day.

TQC, can you explain something to me?

At least five or six times a day, people come up to me in the restaurant I work at and attempt to order food from me while having a conversation on their cell phones. Now, if I worked at Burger King, this wouldn't really be a problem, but I have to ask them between two and four questions before they can actually pay. If I don't ask them the questions, they either won't get their food the way they want it, or I can't get through their ordering process. Why the hell do people find it necessary to give me rude looks for *gasp* asking them questions? And what do they have to say that's so important that it can't wait the two minutes it would take to order their food? And would this annoy you as badly as it annoys me?

Apologies for boring question.

I just bought plane tickets on Priceline, but it LOOKS like it gave me two round-trip tickets instead of one. My sleep-deprived brain is trying to figure out WTF is going on, but all I can figure is that I'm supposed to use the outbound of one round trip and the inbound of the other, maybe.

Is this normal? Or did I accidentally purchase two tickets or do something else fucked? If it's normal then I don't really want to be on hold with Priceline/airline agents for an hour tomorrow morning trying to correct this.

Do you think it's now become slightly backward that students often still have to share a room? (Disregard financial/spacial issues)

I'm asking from the UK, where it is particularly rare to share a room at university. It seems crazy that it still happens so prevalently in the US.
ETA: I'm talking actual rooms, so you sleep without a wall between you. Here, you tend to share a kitchen/bathroom etc within a flat.
