In an effort to be as objective as possible, I will pose this in a way that avoids addressing which side of the issue I am on.

What'd I do?

eta: has anyone noticed lj cuts are now scissors cutting a dotted line? thoughts?
Today I took my car to Midas for a simple oil change and when I went to pick it up, they told me there was $800 worth of important shit wrong with my car. Should I actually be worried about getting any of it fixed soon, or are they just trying to get me to spend money there?
ETA: They didn't seem too concerned when I told them I couldn't get any of the things they mentioned done today, just that they "recommended" it. The car is in no way undriveable in its current condition.
A friend from out of town is staying with you for a week. What do you do with him/her? Where do you go?
I have been renting the place I live in for 6 months. Soon I will be signing a new contract for another 9 months, which would begin in September. I have a good relationship with my landlords, and they are allowing me to store my belongings rent free whilst I am away working for the summer etc.
I am considering moving in with my boyfriend, and if I did so the move would be shortly after the new contract begins. It is dependent on him getting a job in the area, which is only a 50-50 shot. If not, I would remain in this rental for the full term. The option of him finding out whether or not he can get a job here before I sign the contract is not possible, he currently has a locum position until October.
My question is, do I inform my landlord of the situation before I sign the contract and ask their position, or wait until I know whether or not I would even want to move out and then bring it up, obviously giving them atleast one month's notice. If they absolutely refused option B I would remain here of course.
Also possibly relevant: they aren't reliant on my rent to survive or anything. They both have full-time jobs, and two other tenants. Also, I am in the UK. I pay rent monthly.
Sorry if this is a stupid/obvious question, but I haven't been in this situation before and want to check the correct etiqutte/not piss anyone off!
My roomate rudely woke me up because she was "drunk" and it took me like an hour to get back to sleep. She apologized this morning and I usually say something like "It's ok," when people do inconsiderate things to me but its not ok. So I walked away in silence because I didn't know how to reply, what is a good way to?
Have you ever gone gluten-free? Can you tell me about your experience?
My doctor wants me to try it for three weeks and I'm feeling kind of overwhelmed right now trying to figure out what I can actually still eat. My diet isn't the greatest anyway so this is going to be a huge transition, and I don't have a whole lot of money to spend on food. Does anyone know of any resources for someone just starting out?

is it acceptable to apply to the same position twice? i applied to this store a while back and they're still posting ads for the exact same position.
4 days ago I woke up with a sore throat from (assumed) sinus drainage due to allergies. A couple days of high liquid intake and a weather change cleared it all up and my sinuses/nose are fine, yay! But today I am experiencing a weird cough. It's kind of wheezy, not productive at all, and I feel like I need to keep clearing my throat. What do?
dk/dc: I have part of a research project due at midnight that I have yet to start on. Can you think of a really good threat to scare me into working on it?
I'd like to pack apple slices in a lunch tomorrow. I don't have a cooler, ice pack, or fridge, and I'll probably be eating them about 5-6 hours after they are packed. I'm worried that they will be mushy and warm, so I thought about freezing them tonight. Does that make any sense? I don't know anything about freezing apples. Will they be better or worse by freezing them the night before?
TQC, I want to make half-assed margaritas tonight using tequila, sugar and lime juice. I have a few fresh limes, and I'd like to use them for something else (or more margaritas later in the weekend). How do I go about keeping them from drying up once I've cut them open? I've got plastic baggies if that'll help things.
DK/DC: Do you watch Doctor Who? Who's your favorite Doctor? Why?

Polyglots, do you have any tips?
I've been seeing A. off and on since September (off when he moved to Louisville for a few months, but he came back and it was on like donkey kong). He is 26 and I'm 23( in a month) and about to graduate from university. I didn't want to get too serious because I thought I'd get out of Chicago while he'd stay. Then I was rejected out of my future and looks like I'd stay in Chicago for awhile (dammit).
He has sent me flowers for valentine's day, he's met my some of my friends, he HOLDS MY HAND IN PUBLIC, and pays for everything. Yet he claims we're in a gray area.

I have some fresh strawberries- should I make something with them?!
Have any favorite way to eat strawberries?
What's new by you?
I prepared a lasagna earlier, put it in the fridge cuz I didn't have time to cook it. Now that the whole thing has been in there for hours.. should I adjust the cooking time? The cheese would have been cold originally of course but now the sauce and the pan and pasta is cold too.
I usually have to cook things for the minimum time and 25 degrees cooler to prevent them from burning in my lousy apartment oven.
Edit: It came out fine I guess. It's not that great though. Nothing to do with it being cold probably.
Who do you REALLY want to have sex with right now? If anyone?
I'm going to buy a new car soon, and I'm pretty sure that it will be a Prius. But before I decide, I'm looking for input from TQC because you have all the answers.
Those of you who own a Prius, are you glad you bought it? What are the positive and negative things you think that I should know about owning a Prius before I decide? Do you think your next vehicle will also be a Prius?
Those of you who have bought a new car recently and decided not to buy a Prius, what made you decide against getting one? What kind of car did you get instead? Do you like it? Do you think I should check out a car like yours before I decide?
