I am hungry and so very happy.

I am going to a 24-hour cafe by my house to celebrate my LSAT score! The trouble is, I can't decide what to eat... everything looks delicious.

what would you order off of this menu?

Also, if you're in Austin and want to help me celebrate by joining me, let me know! :D


if you don't care:

what are you craving currently?

Do you know of anywhere, especially big chains, that still take the "Free Soda" bottle caps from 20 oz bottles?

Do you save those caps? Or redeem the ones that offer points?

If you don't know/care, what's the best/worst M.J. joke you've heard already? Or is it too soon for jokes?


EDIT: This is a joke I heard at my work last night, and again today. It's apparently making the rounds quickly.

Farrah Fawcett arrived at the Pearly Gates and God welcomed her in there personally, telling her that since she was such an amazing actress, he would grant her one wish.

Farrah thought for a second, before replying "My one wish is that all the children of the world be safe from now on"

God agreed, and Michael Jackson died.

Hi TQC :D
I've just finished university for the summer, so I'm free until the end of September. I've got some summer work, which will take me a couple of weeks, and then I thought I could start looking for a job. Problem is, I don't think it's going to happen since jobs around here are non-existant, and all the other students in the area will be coming back to look for work too, and I'm only going to want a summer job for a couple of months.
So if I don't manage to get a job, what else could I do with my summer? If I don't have a job, I won't have much money to do stuff with either, so cheap suggestions would be good :) Thanks!

My husband and I want to throw a housewarming party to show off our new condo. We're debating the food issue.

-If you're invited to a party that started at 7 or 8pm, would you expect there to be food served? What kinds?

-Is it rude of us to only buy a keg? We'll let people know that they can drink keg-beer for free, or they have to byob. (we will probably end up buying a 2-liter of both Coke and Diet Coke, though).

-We don't want people to bring us gifts. Do we actually say, "No gifts please" or do we just not mention anything at all?

I throw myself upon the judgement of a jury of my peers in the Court of TQC.

I bought my house a year ago. The previous owner had allowed the neighbor, when installing her sprinkler system, to put one of the heads on his property. It is about 3' or 4' on my side of the property line, RIGHT next (practically butted up against) my driveway. It is also directly behind the parking pad of the driveay. See the [extremely shitty] diagram below:



The red line is the property line. The blue is the outline of my driveway. The yellow dot is the location of the sprinkler head.

Today, when leaving for work, I ran over the sprinkler head, breaking it.

So, my question for all of you: is it my responsibility to fix it (since I hit it), or is it her responsibility (since it's on my property without my consent)?

What say you, jury?

My friend says there is no such thing as a "fear of commitment" - if you really like someone, you will commit.  If you start getting that fear, you're just not that into them.

What are your thoughts on this?

Is it worth calling to complain?

DH and I are building a fence and the end of our property. Before we dug the holes I sent in a request to have all the lines located. Everything came back as not near where we were digging so we went ahead.

Fast forward to two days later, we spent ~2 hours levelling and squaring the posts in the holes. DH goes to work, I hear some banging outside. I go outside and the Rogers guy (our phone, cable, internet provider) is banging away in the hole of one of the posts. Apparently we cut their line, they don't participate in locates. He knocked all sorts of dirt in the hole that then had to be dug out by hand and we had to spend the next afternoon re-leveling the posts.

Do you think I should call and complain? What do you think the chances are of them giving me a discount/money off for the inconvience their tech caused?

I apologize for posting again so soon, but this is slightly urgent and I have no one else to ask.

I have been tasked with picking out sheets online for our wedding registry at Target. The problem is our new mattress: it's one of those super thick foam ones with no box spring. So whatever fitted sheets I get have to be able to cover a 14" thick mattress. None of the sheets have pocket measurements listed. Are "deep pocket" sheets THAT deep...or just a little bit extra deep? WTF is a "dobby" sheet?

Basically, what do I need to look for in the product description to tell me whether or not a given sheet will fit this mattress?

Traffic question.

Okay, tqc, my family and I are in a disagreement about how traffic flows here. At our nearest on ramp to the freeway, there is a four lane overpass. Plz don't hate my MSPaint skills, it's even worse when you have a touchpad, not a mouse :( So, question is:

No one is coming in the straight lanes, and there is a green light (but not arrow--yield on green, i think is how it's phrased) for left turners (A). There are cars coming up the right turn lane (B) to get on the on-ramp. There is a YIELD sign to their right.



Now, as you hopefully see, there are two lanes on the on ramp...the right lane merges with the left (left has right of way, as the right land visibly ends first) within 50 ft of the ramp.

So if the light is green for all involved parties, does Car A go first, or Car B? Who yields to who in this situation?

I say B yields to A, but I'm told that they do not yield since there are two lanes to the on ramp. Why would they have a YIELD sign then?

3 un-related q's for you guys:

1) What's the longest time you've had a rental item (e.g. movie rental/book from the library)? I'm terrible about this! I've had a copy of the Great Gastby from the library since January now, and two movies from Hollywood Video for.... a couple months, I think. And don't even get me started on Netflix...

2) I'm really keen on doing some simple, cute crafts. Do you guys know of any on the internet I can try? Anything will suit me. But like... simple origami or just really simple paper crafts. Did I mention simple? I'm not looking to build a bird house... just fun little things to do when I'm bored and could possibly give out as little presents!

3) Do any of you have the new Regina Spektor album? I just got it and it's nice! Not as good as Begin to Hope though. What are you favorite tracks if so? For a while I only liked 'Eet' and 'Human of the Year' (<3<3) but the others are really growing on me! I go to sleep to it at night.

Did you ever go back? If you did, did you get away with it or did you get kicked out of it?

And for the sake of keeping this interesting, I'm not looking for who got kicked out of the mall in HS for like, loitering in front of Bath and Body Works or Hot Topic.

Although now I want to know if anyone has ever been kicked out of Hot Topic.

This has bothering me. Do you think that female and male adults can be good friends? I mean to say, if they're both in committed relationships and assuming they're both straight as well. I asked my parents and they're dead on convinced it can't happen like females and females and males and males can be close buds, because with one of the people in the friendship there's "always something beyond friendship going on,". I thought this was odd, because one of my mom's best friend is a guy, but she says it's okay because my step-dad isn't the "the jealous husband."

I think this is such bullshit! I mean, of course it CAN happen where a guy and and woman will be in a relationship and one will be attracted to the other, but I don't think it's always the case, at all! I have plenty of good guy friends. I can never see the situation being awkward.

So, to sum up, can ladies and mans be good buds as adults? Is saying "no" an old, out of date social protocol, or the cold hard truth? DISCUSS! 

HTML code?

How do I create a html file that has two or three boxes you can fill out and use the data to create text on the same page?

Input A: SKU number
Input B: Size number
Input C: color
Output: Customer wanted SKU 333 in size 7, red. Was not in stock.
Basically this would a tool I could use at work to increase my call handle time.
I could just type in the numbers and copy-paste the output into the system notes.

Good afternoon, TQC.

My friend Josh is the ultimate guru of all things music and has the anthology of the world stored on his computer and various hard drives.

Hopefully asking these questions isn't a violation of any rules, but I have to ask.

My question is, who is this person? Does this sound at all strange?

Does anyone know this person?

Ugh, I'm getting so sick of people assuming:

1. that I'll eventually go to grad school (I want to, but it's pretty much impossible)
and
2. that I HAVE TO have a career plan RIGHT NOW

They won't leave me alone when I say "I don't know" when they ask me what I want to do as a career, and they keep asking me the same thing over and over and "Well, you have to have SOME idea of what you want to do!"

The truth is, I plan to get two part-time jobs, make $20K a year and that's it. I don't want a "real" career, I don't want the pressure of having to work toward a career path, at least not for several more years. I can live on very little money. Apartments in my area are cheap and I don't spend that much.

How can I convince them that I don't have to be a super sophisticated career woman to be happy in life? Why won't people accept that I WANT to have retail and food service careers instead of being an office drone?

tqc, will you help me pick a dress for a wedding on july 18th?

i've got brown hair, i'm 5'3", and it's louisiana. it's already freakin' hot. one of my recently graduated classmates is getting married. if you have any other suggestions, i'm open to them, but it needs to be plus size, either 16-18 or 1x-ish (think inbetweenie). i don't have a jc penneys here yet, they're reopening at the end of july.

here's some of my ideas so far:

i like this dress but how could i dress it up to make it wedding-ish?

or this pink and orange and white one...
