I've noticed, particularly from American commenters, that a lot of people cook entire meals in microwaves. I've grown up with the thought that microwaves were used for reheating & cooking popcorn. I honestly can't stomach the idea of eating meat cooked in the microwave.

Am I in the minority with my thoughts? I'm actually curious about this.

someone in my neighborhood deserves a severe beating. for the last SIXTEEN HOURS, someone has been bumping the god damned bass in their stereo. I SWEAR TO GOD...they started at eight in the morning. GUESS HOW MUCH HOMEWORK/STUDYING/READING/THINKING i've been able to do today?!!?!?!? NOT MUCH.

what brand of noise-canceling headphones are THE BEST EVER? what if i can still feel the vibrations from the god damned bass (yes, it is that loud)?

also, this has been going on for the last six months or so, and i still can't figure out who is doing it. when i find out who it is, what do you suggest i do?

You've written and published a book. It might not be equal in fame to Harry Potter, but a lot of people have heard of it. Modest person that you are, however, you haven't revealed this in a public post on your LJ or in your userinfo. Still, you're curious as to what people think of it, so you decide to ask TQC.

1. If the response was generally positive, would you reveal you were the author, or just gloat privately?
2. If the response was generally negative, would you reveal you were the author? Would you pull an Anne Rice, suck it up, or flounce?

Have you ever written a complaint letter to a restaurant?

My family and I tried out a new "fancy" Irish restaurant this weekend, that I've read has a excellent reputation. Unfortunately it was the worst corned beef we ever tried. We informed the waiter but he only apologized. He didn't offer a discount, free dessert, or anything. I hate to complain and I've never written a complaint letter before.

I am a nervous person, but tend to hide it well. But when it comes to traveling, I'm as nervous as you can be without having a heart attack (so I just get nauseous instead! yay).

I also get motion sickness on the train and in cars. It seemed to develop over the year, because I used to have no trouble with it. Now that I take the train everyday to school and drive, I have it. Awesome.

1. I bought a big bag of sweet tarts that has little individual packs. So I've been munching on them and realized that while most of the packs have 3 pieces, some have 2 or 4. Now I just found a sealed package...that is empty. What the hell is that?

This morning on the radio they were talking about things our parents passed down to us (mainly ideas/tastes/phrases) that we would pass down to our children. Things like "Chevy's are the best" or "It's better to have it and not need it than it is to need it and not have it".
2. So...what are some things your parents passed down to you that you will pass down to the next generation?
3. What are things your parents passed down to you that you will definitely not pass down?

Okay, TQC, I have a dilemma.

I own two ragdoll kittens. They're 6 months old and adorable, but they REFUSE to bury their poo. These two cats have the smelliest poo EVAR. I was under the impression that all cats buried their poo - every other cat that I've had has done it.

How do I train these two to bury their damn poo, before I decide they have to live in the garage?

1. Do you say Interac or debit? Does it matter if you're referring to the card itself or how you are paying? Do you call it something else?

edit: After a quick Google, I just found out Interac is primarily Canadian. So, if you don't know what it is, I guess you say "debit."

2. Someone askes you for ID, and instead of saying "May I see your ID, please?" They say, "May I see your drivers' license, please?" Do you get all screwed up about it and wonder why they said drivers' license and not ID?

Should I write another letter expressing this issue about pizza men dropping by with no pizza?

I have a traveling question.

I'm going to be taking a trip from Boston, MA to Atlanta, GA and then from Atlanta to Del Rio, TX. I've checked all the flight sites and the cheapest it would possibly be is $650 altogether. It would be about $468 if I flew to Atlanta, took a Greyhound from Atlanta to Del Rio and flew back to Boston.

The thing is, the trip would be 1day and 4 hours long from Atlanta to Del Rio. I've only been on a Greyhound from Boston to NYC so it was only about 5 hours long. It wasn't that bad, but I wanted to know about other peoples' experiences.

Have you ever taken a Greyhound for that long? How did it go?

Do you think the savings would be worth it or should I just suck it up and get a plane ticket?

Thanks in advance :)

I hate when people say Crank Call instead of a Prank Call.

Are they cranking an engine?

In the middle of a million definitions that essentially mean the above in http://dictionary.reference.com/browse/crank, i found this: of, pertaining to, or by an unbalanced or overzealous person: a crank phone call; crank mail.

So is there a difference between a Prank Call and a Crank Call? If you are unbalanced, it is a Crank call?

1) do you say prank or crank?
2) do you use both? why or why not?
3) do you use crank only if you are feeling unbalanced or overzealous?

coffee houses

i was reading an article discussing the "best city for young singles" (or something like that), and one of the factors they mentioned was the number of coffee houses a city had; i think they were talking about independent coffee houses, not places like starbucks.

this got me thinking--do people actually go to coffee houses to meet other people? i don't drink coffee so im seldom at a coffee house, but seems to me that when i do go, most people have their noses buried in their laptops. do they secretly desire someone to come talk to them? or is the "meeting someone at a coffee house" thing a hollywood fiction? have you ever randomly met someone at a coffee house?

I never thought I'd find myself having to go to one of these parties. This saturday a dear friend of mine is having an "everything but clothes" themed party. you can wear anything as long as it's not well...clothing. obviously. So my question for you all is what is something I could wear without looking like a complete slut? the idea of wearing candy wrappers is just repulsive. and if any of you have been to a party with the same theme before, what did you wear?

if that isn't your cup of tea, then what's the best themed party you've ever been to?

Video help

My fiance and I were at Circuit City today and we saw a music video that we really liked, but it never said who the band was. It was on like, a Circuit City dvd thing that they play in the speaker section on the tv to show off the speakers.

The video started out with a shot of (we think) Mt. Fuji, and then the band started singing in an area that looked like a Japanese Time Square with all the signs reaching into the sky. The band itself was kind of scrappy looking. All the guy except the singer had long hair and lots of facial hair. The singer had a little beard thing, and dark hair, and dark eyes. At one point, the singer is kind of posing with a Japanese Elvis-type impersonator who is wearing a red outfit. The music was kind of emo/indie, like the Strokes. We thought it was OK GO, but it wasn't.

The only part of the song I can think of right now, was something like "maybe it'll be alright." But I really don't remember now.

I know it's a long shot. Anyone have any ideas?

Reese - The girl everyone likes


I finally decided to take about 10 hours and get all of the family music onto two hard drives. The music I want is on my hard drive, in little folders like iTunes makes, but iTunes can't see ANY of my music unless I manually select the files in the folder and tell iTunes to play them. Consolidating my library does not work. Is the latest iTunes just buggy, or is it more of an "Apple still hates you" situation?

Is there anything I can do besides taking all of my files out of every single folder, then telling iTunes to play them? meerasedai is made of win and gold. THANK YOU for the suggestion!

Should I throw myself, or the computer, out the window? Should I be constructing a Steve Jobs voodoo doll?

Why do I always hear great things about Apple, but haven't had a super good experience since the IIe? (My iPod only half counts as a good experience.) Doesn't anyone else feel ambivalent (or worse) towards Apple?!

1. What's the coldest outside temperature you've ever endured?

Today, here in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, the temperature was -30*C (-22*F) but with windchill, it was closer to -50*C (-58*F). I don't think this is the coldest I've ever lived through, but it was close.

2. Where you live/where you have lived, what does it take, weather-wise, for things to start shutting down? Like schools and public transit and so on?

Everything was business as usual here today. I'm a teacher, and the school was open and most of the students were there. Growing up in a smaller town than Calgary, we usually had one or two snow days per year due to cold, but that was because lots of our students were bussed in from the surrounding countryside.

mp3 players and then some.

So, being the slow person that I am, it's taken me a good three years to realize that iPods suck. Now that my iPod has finally died, I decided I didn't want to buy another one. I'd rather have a different kind of MP3 player, and lo! Some of the ones I looked at have even cooler features than iPods do. That said, my question (which has probably been asked before, but hell if I'm sifting through 9586724598679786 entries) is:

What MP3 Player, other than the iPod, would you recommend to me? Right now I'm looking at the Zune and Zen, but if you know of other really good ones, I'd like to hear them.

Should I go see Third Eye Blind in February? 

Pros: I love them.  The show is only 2 hours away.  It would be something fun to do, and the husband and I haven't had much of that lately.  I'd like to see them in concert again.  Tickets are reasonably cheap.  This is the closest to where I live that they've played in at least a few years, I think.

Cons: The show is 2 hours away, and we are in Pennsylvania, and it's February.  It might snow a shit-ton, and that will be no fun to drive in.  I don't know anyone in the town that they're playing in.  Husband and I will have to get up at 6:30 for work the next day after driving home all night.  The only other time I saw them in concert was last March at the Fillmore in San Francisco, and the energy of that show will probably be way better than the one that they're going to do in Kent State in February. I'm worried that it will not be any fun.  The show is at a university, which probably means no booze at the venue (not that I'm an alcoholic, but I do like to have a drink or two at a show) not to mention the drive home that neither of us wants to be smashed for.

Say there's a person who is always on-time to work and does the job exceptionally, can always be counted on to fulfill personal obligations, generally is a very responsible person... who is stoned literally every waking moment. Gets up in the morning and before peeing, eating, or drinking a cup of coffee, has to get stoned. Carries a pack of ten pre-rolled joints to smoke during a four-hour round trip drive. Goes to work stoned every single day (but as I said, does the job perfectly and always comes in on time). Generally smokes enough weed that s/he never actually seems stoned.

Would you consider this person to "have a problem"? Elaborate if you want. I'm curious.

I'm normally not this gross. Or dumb.

Okay, so way back when, I posed this question to you fine folk.

And lookie here, I actually got my gallbladder taken out 1 week ago.

(I'm so much better now with that stoopid thing gone, I can eat! Woo.)

Okay, so now the post-op instruction sheet said that I can take my bandages off after 48 hours and shower. But I was to leave the white steri-strips on.

So that's what I did.

And I haven't removed the steri-strips yet. It's been 1 week exactly and seriously, these strips are looking funky and nasty. Like REALLY old bandaids? With all the sticky stuff turning black and shit?
(I've been showering and drying and all.)

So should I remove them?
Wait until my follow-up appointment? (It's tomorrow.)
The trouble with waiting is, well, what if I was supposed to remove them and like I go there and the surgeon is all, "What the hell, lady?"
But what if I remove them tonight and I wasn't supposed to?

Does anyone have any good advice for passing a log book test for driving?. I still have 6 weeks until my actual driving assessment but I am truly petrified. So much is riding on me passing and I've been driving assisted for 3 years now but I need ANY advice you can throw at me, particularly if you live in Australia because I'm assuming we have a different system to other countries. Any tips/advice would be really appreciated. I've had a few professional lessons and am having 2 per week for the next 6 weeks. Thanks in advance, it would seriously mean a lot.


Ok, so I've felt REALLY crappy all evening...I even came home early from work.  About 10 minutes ago I started listening to Groove Salad and now I feel much better. 

How do you feel after listening to this for a few minutes?

You Must Have!

I'm looking for anything that any of you may think is a must have out there.
Mostly computer based stuff, like downloads or programs.
But I would love to hear any other opinions on things not just myself, but everyone should have.
At least access to.
So, will you share?

Can police dogs smell alcohol?

I'm going to a hockey game tomorrow. If I smuggle in alcohol, will the police dogs they have at the main gates spot me out? I've smuggled alcohol in successfully before...but they never had police dogs before. Why do they have police dogs now???

Okay, so genetics gave me really dark circles under my eyes. Well, it might not be genetics, but I get plenty of healthy sleep, so whatever. My question is, do any of you know of any cream that actually works in reducing the darkness of under eye circles? I don't care much for the puffiness or wrinkles going away, it's just so DARK.
