What's the one thing your significant other does that if you were to casually mention it on lj with no other context as to what kind of a good person they are, that everyone who saw it would say you really should dump them for doing that thing/having that particular quality?

What other qualities do they have that cause you to overlook or forgive this one thing they do?

Car Towage..

Stupid question alert!

My boyfriend's car was towed about 5 years ago. Where would it be now? He was out of state at the time, and his family didn't bother to tell him until years later that it had been towed by the county (due to expired tags).

Did it get crushed/chopped/etc? According to the local tag office the registration is still in his name (but several years expired). My MAIN question: Is there any way we can get his car back? Yeah, I didn't think so...

Sorry for being a newb, don't hate! :P

I needed to make an appointment with someone at the college here. I emailed them on tuesday afternoon and they emailed me back quite late on tuesday evening. I think it was almost midnight. They said I should pick a day and time (thursday or friday afternoon) and let them know. I still emailed them back on tuesday night suggesting thursday afternoon at 2. It's now about 10 past midnight on thursday and I still haven't heard anything.

Will they still answer or should I assume the time I suggested is okay and just go there for that time tomorrow?

Do you wet the inside of your mouth before brushing?

I always swish some water around before I start brushing. It feels weird for me if I don't wet with water first.

To celebrate lots of work getting finished I had two beers and collapsed on the couch after a late office night. Now I'm a little too tipsy to be able to decide simple things for myself. Luckily I am a member of a community who will micromanage my evening for me, if only I will ask nicely!

So... should I eat the sensible salad I picked up on the way home, or pull out the frying pans and make hash browns and fried eggs like I am craving?

Anyone ever ordered prescription drugs from online pharmacies from outside of the US? Which ones aren't total scams, if any? Some of the generics listed that aren't available in the US are offered infinitely cheaper than in the US, and it's hard to Google for site reviews.

Is it weird that I view people as their icons on lj? For example: If you're 70 years old, but have an icon of a 16 year old anime chick as your icon, I view you as a 16 year old when I converse with you.

I'm cracking myself up but everyone else seems to be looking for the exit

I was at the grocery store today and happened to look at the covers of the gossip magazine, one headline caught my attention "Anna Book's painful decision she lost the battle with the overweight" now it might just be me but for me losing battles is something you do with serious disease like cancer.

Now to the question now that she "lost the battle with the overweight" what will happen now? She will eat everything in sight? She will abandoned her singing career and become a plus size model? She will toss the scale out the window? Something more witty I can't think of?

Now I Know that being overweight can be hard to deal with but I think the headline is just a tad bit dramatic. I also realize that most of you never heard of that woman before so I'm putting a photo of her under the cut as a visual aid to what I'm talking about.

I have to eat breakfast every morning, or I get cranky and headachey around 10am, and then it's a long 2 hours till lunch. I want to make sure my breakfast is pretty nutritious, so I usually just choke down some kind of meal bar that has a lot of vitamins and whatnot in them.
HOWEVER, I am getting really tired of replacement food. I'd like to have something that's actually tasty for breakfast, preferably something warm. I've considered cold cereal with soymilk, because I'm lactose intolerant, but like I said I'd like something warm. Here are my restrictions:

I don't want to eat a million calories before noon, so eggs & sausage kind of isn't want I'm looking for.

I hate oatmeal, peanut butter and bananas.

Am I fucked? Any suggestions?

bills, furnaces, and student orgs. Oh my!

1) My internet bill is due on Saturday. I mailed out the bill today. Will it arrive on time? The pay stub thingy says to allow 5 business days for mailing....I don't want my first bill to be late!

2) Why does my furnace not work right? It will heat the house for a while, but the fan is cranked So High that it blows out the flame. I do not know how to fix it, and my roommate says he tried to fix it but it's rusted or something (I wasn't totally listening). Why must it be 62F in my house in the morning? :(

3) Our school had a deadline of yesterday for student organizations to turn in their paperwork, in order to be recognized by the University. WHY was I never informed of this, as a president of a student org? There were no emails, no fliers in our mailboxes, NOTHING. Yet everyone else seemed to know about it...does the University just hate me?

For The Coffee Drinkers Out There

1:  For those of you who go out for iced coffee, where do you like to go?
I've tried the vanilla iced coffees from McDonalds and Jack In The Box and the iced mocha from Starbucks but I have yet to find an iced coffee that I like.

2:  For those of you who make your own coffee (either hot or iced), how do you usually prepare it?
I like half of it to have powdered creamer and I add about 2-4 packets of Splenda and it tastes like caramel.  Suffice it to say, I only drink coffee if I can mask the flavor but I like the caffeine, so I don't want to stop drinking coffee.

3:  How many cups of coffee do you consume on average per day?
If I make it myself, one cup.  If I go out, I usually get a medium or a large which would be two or three cups, I guess.

We all know that there are assholes out there who use people - lie, emotionally manipulate - simply to get into their pants, for physical/sexual fulfillment.

But have you ever known someone who uses people - without caring about what might happen to them as a result - for the sake of obtaining and feeling emotional infatuation?

(This can be either in addition to sex, or exclusive of sex, though specifying which would be helpful.)

Edit: Are they male or female?

If I make it to a good school, should I still go for it? Or go to a "worse" school? I'm scared that I might not cut it if I were to transfer to a "good" school. I've busted my ass off for 2 years at a community college and have a 4.0 because of that. I'm truly not smart at all. It takes me very long to absorb concepts, which is why I'm always studying.

My counselor says I have a chance at pretty good universities. I have a lot of extracurriculars, and I feel that my professors would write nice recommendations.

But a part of me is saying, "Go to a small state school that no one's ever heard of because you'll have a better chance of keeping your GPA there. You got a 4.0 at a community college, which probably doesn't mean much. You'll probably get like a 2.3 at the good school."

What would you do? I'm considering grad school, too, and I'm very certain that I won't keep my GPA up at a really good school. I need brains, and my study skills alone won't cut it.

It's Vista because hp - her laptop maker - decided to make this model a vista-only model and didn't provide any drivers for XP (forgetting any other OSs. Though, Ubuntu did pick up more devices right off the bat than XP and Vista combined).

Anyway, my question isn't really related to any of that. It's a clean system, not even an antivirus app installed (how clean can it be then, you might ask. well, you'd be surprised!). But I did install Firefox (which I'm typing in now).

So... why does Firefox say "Scanning for viruses" in the download window after downloading a file? Is there something built into FF? Vista? Is it just BSing me?

On another note, without starting any flame wars... what do you think of Vista? IMHO, it's pretty, but very much messed up in many other respects.

1. Why is music important to you?

2. Why does it feel so good when you sing?

3. Are there any songs that give you a *spiritual* experience? If so, what song?

(spiritual does not need to mean religious, it just MOVES you)

edit: Videos and lyrics are love:) So post them!

2) Have you ever seen a glory hole in real life?

3) If you had to fake your death, how would you do it?

I'm going to my first academic conference (actually, 2 of them) in a couple of weeks, where I will be meeting VIPs in my field. So the question is, TQC, what do I wear?

Bathroom questions ahoy.

1. On a scale of 1 to 10, how hard is it to flush a public toilet? (1 being "I could do it in my sleep" and 10 being, like, God making a rock so heavy He Himself could not lift it.)

The girls in my dorm seem to find it dern near a 10.


2. Do those little paper toilet seat covers really make a difference at all?

Probably not, but I like to think it makes the seat a little less gross.


3. Have you ever encountered a stall with this logo?

My dorm's stalls are all made by these people.

Dear TQC,
I just found out that we're going to be allowed to wear costumes to work on Halloween. I'm having trouble coming up with something... What would you suggest?

I have Trend Micro Internet security and it found a virus on my computer and it gives me 2 options: to clean it or delete it.

Is it better to clean the file or delete it?
