How to improve my credit.

I have a credit card that I haven't paid in a couple of months and not only is it past due but its over limit too. In a few weeks ill be receiving my tax refund money and wanted to know:

Which way of paying my credit card would improve my credit if at all? Paying it all at once or in increments?

Broken foot

I feel down the stairs today (whoops) and my right foot really hurts. I can still but my weight on it without excruciating pain, but I have sharp pains if I try to point my toes up. I don't want to wait 6 hours in the hospital for X-rays if I don't need them.

Have any of you ever broken a bone in your foot before?

PLEASE HELP

I am looking for a book I read as a kid in the late 80s-early 90s. It was aimed at younger readers, maybe age 6-10.

It was about a little girl who always wore a collar/necklace/choker/ribbon around her neck. People always asked why she wore it and she never answered. She met a boy as a teenager, eventually married him and had kids, and grew old with him. All througout their life she never took it off and never said why she wore it. On her deathbed, she said she had a secret and took the choker off. When she took it off, her head fell off.

What book is this??? I am not finding anything in my searches and want my son to have this book!

Here's the scene: The coffee shop down the street from my house employs a very attractive guy. He recognizes me, remembers my order, etc. We chat a bit (small talk). However, I really only go into the shop once a week, max (usually more like once every two weeks). Tonight, as I was at the shop, I happened to overhear him mentioning that the next time he works is Monday.

How stalkeriffic would it be if I made a point to stop in and get a drink on Monday?

there is a quote i have heard, and i have seen a bit from the movie and it looks nothing short of awesome.
the quote is "they're eating her! and then they're going to eat me!! OH MY GOOOOOOOOOD!!!!"
what movie is this from!? it's some zombie movie by the looks/sound of it.

Stupid exes and ideas.

Background: My SO & I of 3 years broke up at the end of January. At the time, he said he'd get a tattoo that would kind of have a double meaning; the obvious meaning of the tattoo and another meaning that would be for him and me. Today, his new profile picture was him showing of such new tattoo. I'm furious. I got a tattoo in September and I had been debating between two quotes. One of those choices is now tattooed on him (I chose the other one).

1. How would you feel?? It's hard to explain well enough.. the quote was something I was deeply touched by and it bothers me to no end that it is now on his body... even though I didn't get it for this last tattoo, I was planning on getting it later.

2. I have to do one-on-one interviews with every girl in my sorority and make a presentation of everyone. What are some unique, funny questions that would be cool to ask!?

edited to fix grammer error.

And I also had told him those both choices and my meanings behind them blah blah. :[ I realize I'm big a big baby and probably looking for a deeper meaning when there may be none but stillllll..

There's an overpopulation of cats in your city. There's a lot of strays, and they breed at a high rate, and because they're cutie wutie kitties, no one wants to see anything bad happen to them, so they let them run around. Now, the cats are killing off many of the local birds, squirrels and other small wildlife in your area, endangering the local species. The mayor urges everybody to pitch in and help catch the cats, so they can be collected and mass exterminated, for the good of the wildlife. What do you do?

You're at a park and you see a man hit his dog for doing something bad. The dog cowers and the man screams at it and hits it again. Some people there step in and try and defend the dog, but he says that it's his dog and he can do as he wishes. He goes back to his bench and leaves 10 minutes later. You notice something on the bench. He left his wallet there. You flip through it, and notice that it has $1,000 in it, and what looks like aged, yellow pictures of what you think are his parents, which are probably irreplacable. He's an asshole, but does he deserve to be parted from this much money and personal pictures, or is this all part of the asshole tax? Also, nowhere in the wallet is there an ID or anthing with his information, so you wouldn't be able to locate him once he goes away. He's just leaving the park now. It's now or never. What do you do?

You're asked to housesit/apartmentwatch for your hottest friend (of the gender you're attracted to). So, you're there, in their home, and kind of bored, so you look for a movie to watch. No cable and nothing's on. No dvds, but there's vhs tapes. You put in an unlabelled tape and press play. The screen lights up. It's not a movie at all, but rather, a sex tape between your friend (owner of the place you're watching) and their ex. It looks like it's juicy, graphic, noisy sex. What do you do?

Turn it off. It's completely disrespectful to watch it. I don't tell him or her I found it

Weirdest thing during sex

What's the weirdest thing you've said/done during sex to kill the mood?

I don't mean things like 'said the wrong name'. For me, it's thinking random crap and saying it outloud, like "do rabbits really have sex alot you think? I mean, their growth rates aren't as big as others...maybe the expression should be sc*** like cockroaches?"

comfort

i was on a porch at a house i was recently looking at that smelled of a fresh bouquet of flowers. i asked the woman showing us the house how she kept it smelling so nice, she told me it was an "Air Wicks" electric air freshener.

my sisters room always smells of rich vanilla, a scent i normally hate, but it smelled awesome in her room. she attributed her scent success to Glade plugins.

anytime i've ever gotten these plugins (in their defense, i've only tried febreze plugins), they never seem to work as well for me as they do for others.

additionally my sisters bedroom is in the basement, so it's always quite cool and the air always smells fresh. is there any way i can replicate this from the third floor of an apartment building? dehumidifiers maybe? i'm not even sure what dehumidifiers really *do*.

So I guess this is a two part question about comfort. Most importantly though, how do you keep your rooms smelling nice, preferably something low maintenance and low cost (as i'd like to keep my whole apartment smelling nice).

thanks for any tips :)

What's the best way to inquire as to whether or not a place has positions available? I'm wondering if our local zoo is hiring but it doesn't have anything on its website about employment. There is a contact email form and also a phone number and an address. Should I send an email first? A phone call? Or just send my resume with a nice cover letter that says something along the lines of "Hi, I want a job, I just want to know if you have any positions open" (phrased more professionally of course). I'm not really sure how to go about contacting them.

1.As a senior in high school, I have to do a 10 page research paper and a 40 minute presentation on a topic of my choice. My only problem is, I don't know what I should research. I was thinking of art therapy, but I don't have a thesis for that except maybe that it should be used more often? I was also thinking of doing something with Synesthesia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Synesthesia) but again, no thesis.
So, TCQ, what should I do my research paper on?

I ask because my new inhaler is giving me massive headaches. But I'll have to deal with it because I'm too creeped out by my current doctor to ask him for something else and I can't take off from work to go to a new doctor right now.

question for those with tattoos:

can you describe at all what it's like having one? like, what you think about when you notice it(if you notice it) do you ever have days you wish you hadn't done it, days where you're really happy you did, was it worth it, etc.?

i'm thinking about getting one. i really don't feel like the tattoo kind of person but i feel like i want just one. i feel like i want a reminder of something i've loved for a long time and still makes me happy. something concrete. you know, something i still feel is apart of me after years and years. i wish this made sense... there's one thing i've thought about getting since i was 13 but i've never really THOUGHT about actually doing it until now, so obviously i'm hesitant since it's forever.

1) My birthday is later this month, and my parents want to know what I want. Aside from the obvious, hookers and blow, there's literally nothing I want. I need to get some work done on my car, and I'm suddenly paying for college classes and books out of my salary... would it be weird to ask my parents for books for a few classes for my birthday?
Oh, actually! There's this one camera I want, but I was going to give it to myself once I completed 9 credit hours. Should I ask for that, or stick with the books?

2) For those of you with laptops: Do you take them with you to the restroom when you think you might... be a while? One of my friends has a TV tray in his bathroom, and I can't decide if it's hilarious or crazy. Also, I worry he's IMed me while pooing!

Hey Dr.LJ,
I know how much you guys love the medical questions but I've googled the net and haven't found much. Basically yesterday I got a bit of back pain, it was mostly fine but occasionally I would get these small lower back spasms. Anyone know what the deal is on that?

Then to relieve myself I took 2 super strength Ibuprofen (Advil, basically) and I went to sleep and was knocked out for 17 hours! It did say only take 1 tablet every 4 hours, but does anyone really follow that directive? Has anyone ever been knocked out by advil? I didn't know there was a sleepy side effect.

3 equally important but totally unrelated questions

1. So you know how at the end of TV shows there will be a little tag for the producer? e.g. at the end of Grey's it's a rollercoaster that says Shondaland for her production company, at the end of "Veronica Mars" it's rats in ankle chains doing a conga line, after "Lost" I think there's a cartoon and the line from Jaws "That's some bad hat, Harry," at the end of "My So-Called Life" it's the house from It's a Wonderful Life with a line from the song in the movie... (Just some random examples for ya.) So the question, TQC, is what would YOURS be? How do you wittily sum up something about you in a simple design and perhaps a snippet of a sound?

2. My former Spanish host sister is coming to NYC, and I want to take her out and show her a good time, America-style. However I don't live *in* the city, only near it, and I don't go out barhopping or clubbing much, sooo any suggestions?

I haven't gone to church in almost 10 years, but used to go every Sunday without fail. I've been considering going back, just once to see if I'd like it again. For some reason, I'm really anxious about walking into a church. For people who go to church, is it weird to see a "new person" there? Is there anything I have to do when I walk in? light a candle? give money? just walk to a pew and sit? (if it matters, I'd be going to a Greek Orthodox church, but I imagine it's pretty similar to any Christian church).

Has anyone gone back to church after years of not going?

GIRLS:

Do you remove your body hair or do you leave as is?

BOYS:

Does it put you off if a girl has not removed her body hair (eg - under arm hair, leg hair)?

If kids choose to do bad things, is it the parent's fault? Or is it their own fault?


Do you think kids should know the difference between seriously wrong, and what is right? I'm talking about things like hurting other people, not stuff like spray painting a building wall.

Credit reports

TQC when I was younger, I was really irresponsible towards my credit. I am trying to fix it now, and I am slowly paying things off. BUT! I had a capital one visa long ago. I keep getting calls from a collection agency that is harassing me to pay them, and when I look at my credit report, it's not even on there. WTF should I do? It's obviously not reporting negatively on my score. 

Do you know what your score is?

Why is my TransUnion and Equafax higher then the Experian score?

I just moved my laundry from washing machine to dryer, only to find out that I accidentally washed a pair of iPod earbuds. Will I get electrocuted and die if I try and use them now?

What was the best thing that happened to you this weekend?

relationships

Let's just say that you and your SO are having major problems and that you've been together for years (many, many). You are on the verge of ending it all and you ask him/her, "What can I do or change to make this work?" and he/she says, "I can't stand your personality.  You would have to change that."  What would you do?  Would you change your personality to be with someone?  If so, how would you go about doing that?  Or, would you decide that it's completely not worth changing yourself that much for someone else?

A chick just messaged me on Bebo saying that she saw my name on a class list  (I'm at uni) the other day. She said she was really looking forward to seeing me again and told me to come sit with her in class next time.

I have NO idea who she is. I don't recognise her name and I can't find any pictures of her. She can't have got me mixed up with someone else because I have an EXTREMELY uncommon name, she would have seen my picture on Bebo, and she mentioned an organisation I'm with.

So TQC...

How do I find out who she is and how I know her?
What shall I do when I get to class?
If she approaches me should I tell her I have no idea who she is, or awkwardly make my way through class with small talk?

The class is only about 20 or so people so I can't pretend I didn't see her.

Have you ever been in a similar situation?

How much could I get by selling one of my kidneys?

On a related note, what are some good ways to get $15,000, no strings attached (minus the obvious grand larceny kind of thing)? And no, military signing bonuses are not an option - that's what got me into this mess in the first place.
