I'm in Denver CO for 2 weeks (well more specifically Aurora). What should I do while I'm here? (eat, see), even recommend stuff I wouldn't typically see in my part of Canada (IHOP, Krispy Kreme, Denny's). The people I'm staying with have only been in CO for about 1 year so they don't know it very well yet. Thanks. :)

Did you have to deal with any type of over-the-top/annoying/bullshit drama this holiday season?

I have noticed an increase in how many of my friends (on FB and various websites) that have decided they are photographers.  Do  you know any really good photographers?  Any crappy FB-friends who haven't quite figured it out yet?

What is your biggest guilty pleasure?

1. Do you have a My Coke Rewards account? If so, how do you spend your points? (as far as I'm concerned, the whole program exists solely to keep me rolling in free Entertainment Weekly magazines, although I enter drawings a couple of times a year just in case)

2. Alternate question: Think of all the current TV shows you watch on a fairly regular basis. Regardless of whether you watch them on TV or via other means, which network do you watch the greatest number of shows from?

TQC, my cousin is engaged to a girl we'll call Serena. Now Serena is a lovely girl, she's very sweet, has a good sense of humor, and I like her a lot. But they've only been engaged a couple months at this point with no date set, together maybe a year or so, and she's already referring to herself as his "wife". She was referring to herself as such even BEFORE they were engaged, saying things like "it's so hard being a [law enforcement officer's] wife!", "I love being my man's little wifey!" etc, etc. And the facebook posts...omg, the facebook posts. "COOKING DINNER FOR MY MAN! LOVE BEING A WIFE! :D "

Anyway, it's not like it's my place to have reason to be vehemently opposed to this. If they're happy, whatever, it's not like it's any skin off my nose and there are circumstances where I think it's perfectly sensible to think of one's unmarried but long-term partner as their "husband" or "wife", say if you've been together for a decade or something. 

But I have to be honest, I do find it sort of weird, maybe even creepy, just because they've been together so short a time. And I don't think my cousin thinks of himself as Serena's "husband" or at least I've never heard him say as much.

Would you find this peculiar, too? How would you feel if your partner of a year referred to themselves as your husband/wife, even if they were not (in an official capacity)?

Okay, TQC MD, have any of you ever experienced sudden, random itching of various places on your body? It started on my scalp, which is unusual for me because I've never had dry/itchy scalp or dandruff before. But given the itching, I just assumed that this was the cause since it is winter and all. But my husband looked at my scalp and said he didn't see anything. No flakes, redness, bumps, lice, etc. Weird. Then I started itching in other places too... the underside of my forearm, places on my hands and feet, my breasts, the back of my neck, etc. There are no dry patches, bumps, or signs of a rash. Also, nothing has changed in regards to my diet, medication, or products that I use.

Any ideas on what could be causing this mysterious itching? If it keeps up, I might just have to go to the doctor if I want to remain sane.

So, if a journal entry  magically disappears from your journal and you can't find it - is it just, not enough searching, accidental deletion (have no idea how that would happen, actually. I'm crazy about keeping my entries all neat and proper and not prone to vanishing.) or magic livejournal hijinks of evil? 

Basically, have any of you lost a journal entry with no idea how it vanished? Especially since it's been one updated throughout the year (like a Books Read list). Thanks for any answers!

my friend and I are hosting a cook off event soon. I haven't decided what I'm going to make yet! we're doing a three course meal.

I'm pretty sure everyone likes Mexican and chicken...

tqc, can you please suggest some dishes that I can make? something that's not too simple but tastes good.

Can you tell us about your last romantic date?

EDIT: I don't mean that the date had to be ~romantic, but what I'm getting at is can you tell me about the last date you had with someone that was not with friends or family members etc.

Restaurant workers of TQC: could you settle something for me?

I just went out to dinner at a small pub-style restaurant with my family, a party of six. The pub has several tables that seat six, a few that seat four, and additional seating at the bar. We got there at around 6pm and were told it would be a 30-40 minute wait. It stretched into closer to an hour or more because two parties of two were seated at tables for six leisurely sipping beers after their meals. Two of the tables for four opened up during our wait.

What should the restaurant have done in a situation like this?

Is there anything that you loved doing in English class? Any great projects that you remember? Any favorite short stories or poems? What was something that you had a difficult time with once you got to college in terms of writing?

It's been years since I last went to a doctor. I'd like to get a check up and I'd also like to talk to them about some specific health/pain issues. What's the etiquette here? Do I bring up these issues at the check-up or do I get the check up and make an appointment to talk about the more specific issues later? How/when do I bring these things up?

So I have some raspberry flavored Smirnoff I'm never going to drink. I've had it for a while now because it got bought by accident. I need something to do with it though. I had the idea of filling some jars with actually raspberries, some sugar then pouring the vodka over it and freezing it then eating the raspberries at a later time.

I don't know why this is the thought I'm having but it is. Is this a "good" idea? Do you have a better suggestion?
