I have a friend who completed a graphic novel. He is trying to find someone who will be interested in publishing it. How does he go about finding someone? The premise is pretty cool.
How do you like your coffee?
I like mine with a little milk, and a little more sugar.
Have you ever had an energy audit done at your home or workplace? How much did it cost? Was it worth the expense? Where do you live?
How hard is it for you to keep Christmas/etc gifts a secret from the people they're for?
I've just decided what I want to get my fiance for Christmas (a subscription to Sirius radio in our car, he's a big Howard Stern fan and would be thrilled to be able to listen to his show live during his hour-long morning commute) and it's almost painful for me to keep my mouth shut about it. I know he'll love it, and I'm excited!
Is there anything you used to be self-conscious about or that you didn't like about yourself that you're getting over or learning to embrace? What is it?
Despite know that nestlé is by all accounts a pretty 'evil' exploitive company. I still will readily buy polo mints and kitkat chunky caramels because I like them.
Does this make me a bad person?
Do you boycott any companies products you really like on moral grounds?
Are there any products you find so good or delicious that you don't care who makes them?
Thanks to a stomach ulcer, my doctor banned me from drinking any carbonated drinks, coffee and sour fruit-drinks (like orange juice) for at least two weeks. I made it past 8 days on only water and tea, but it's starting to get really boring. And thanks to my IBS I need to drink at least 2 liters of fluid each day. Can you recommend me some drinks to spice up my drinking-diet, that would be ok for my predicament?
(Oh and alcohol is out of the order too! Oh, AND i'm allergic to red fruits)
Don't know/Don't care: How's your cat?
My cat Bor found out he really likes my new desk-chair and he keeps on stealing it whenever i stand up, or tries pushing me from it. It's annoying but cute at the same time.

What's the big deal with deleting comments? Almost every community I'm in prohibits, and I don't understand why. Is there something wrong with realizing you said something stupid and correcting yourself?
I got a $50.00 note at work today. It has a phone number written on.
Would you ring the number and see who it belongs to?
As part of some personal goals I am placing for the next few months, I am considering spending NYE alone in Chicago. This is an exciting concept for me as I have never travelled for NYE and NEVER by myself. It would be a statement of how much I am able to take care of myself and of my autonomy.
If I travel now, however, I am not completely 100% sure I will have all of the money I will want to have a good time. I worry about running out. I am moving into my first apartment by myself and don't know exactly what my bills will look like in the first month.
Also if I stay in town I know I will be able to afford new items for my apartment, and I could take the vacation in January or Feb when I know I will have all the moneys I could possibly want and will have more time to plan exactly what I want to do.
It's a seductive idea for me to spend the time in Chicago specifically at that time of year for obvious symbolic reasons.
What are your thoughts TQC? Should she do it? Should she not? Should she stop referring to herself in the third person and imagining dramatic organ music in the background?
If you have taken one, will you post a photograph of a spider?
Additional/alternate question - How noisy is your living space? My house is usually pretty quiet, but my neighbor has been chopping wood outside my window all afternoon and it's driving me crazy.
Have you ever heard of someone who attempted suicide and then described the experience as a total wakeup call - realized what they'd be missing out on and decided to change their life?
Where's your favorite site for custom-printed t-shirts? I need some cheap recommendations.
dk/dc - If you just adopted a new kitten, what would you name it?
I'm applying for an English language teaching job in Japan next year through the JET Programme. In my application, I need two written references. Because I'm still studying teaching at university when I'm applying, by their rules one of these references must come from someone within my school.
I feel like I don't know any of my lecturers or tutors well enough to ask them for a reference off the bat. Only one of them has ever seen me teach, and that was over 6 months ago when I was on my first placement, and she had a lot of improvements for me to make (which I believe I have made). The only other person I can really think of is the Learning Languages lecturer...he probably doesn't remember me, but I chose Learning Languages for a "specialist week", and got a good grade for that part of the course. I assume he'd be the most relevant person to get a reference from, based on the job, but would it be incredibly weird to email him explaining my situation and asking for a written reference when he probably doesn't even know me? Should I try the other lecturer who saw me teach 6 months ago? Or someone different entirely?
I want to invest HUGE in penny stocks...do you have any good stock tips???
I am planning on buying all of my holiday gifts from small businesses that make homemade items - can you please link me to some of your favorite etsy stores/small business websites? Doesnt matter what they sell.
eta: shoot, sorry. I didn't check before posting again. :/ I thought my last post was awhile ago!
Hey TQC, what did you have for lunch today?
Inspired by the meatball sandwich I had.
Hello, TQC. I wanna see Macy's Day Parade via online TV. Could you recommend me a free TV broadcast where could I see it?
If life begins at conception, then why are we zero days old when we are born?
Does Apple TV instantly stream movies off itunes, or does it have a downloading period like when you watch on your laptop?
Does anyone here have AppleTV? Do you like it?
Are there any other (legal) options for instantly streaming new release movies in Canada?
What gifts are you most excited to give this Christmas?
TQC, is it possible to drop a dress size in 2 weeks? I have a ball, and I don't want to buy a new dress, but all my dresses are UK10. I am currently in a UK12 which is nicely fitting on me.
I don't want to crash diet. I'd just give up all snacks, eat lean meats, lots of veg, just drink water. I already exercise a fair amount (hockey) but I'd just move to doing something every day.
Is this achievable? Or shall I just start budgeting for a new dress haha?
Dk/Dc - any fun plans for the next few weeks?
So I am meeting my boyfriend's nephews this weekend, ages 4 and 7, and nieces, ages 10 and 13. I can count the times I've interacted with children around these ages ON ONE HAND. Help me! I want to make a good impression. How do I relate to or interact with these children?
