Okay, TQC. I've been living in my apartment for five years now, and since before I even moved in here, I've had HORRIBLE ugly hard water rings in the toilets. I've tried a few things to get rid of them (Lime Away, LCR, Magic Erasers, and a few other name-brand things), but none have succeeded. Any suggestions on how to get them to go away for good?

Also, just for fun, here's a poll about cleaning (since I should be cleaning, but am instead perusing the internet).

How often do you deep clean your home?

Once a year.
13(12.7%)
Every six months.
25(24.5%)
Every month.
11(10.8%)
Every week or two.
13(12.7%)
A few times a week.
5(4.9%)
Every day.
4(3.9%)
It's...been a while...
31(30.4%)

How often do you do laundry?

Once a month.
8(8.9%)
About once a week.
57(63.3%)
Daily or almost daily.
24(26.7%)
Never. I just buy new clothes.
1(1.1%)

What's your LEAST favorite chore?

Laundry.

Keeping Reaching For That Rainbow? [Jul. 11th, 2014|01:16 am]

When is the point when you should give up your unlikely ambitions? E.g., publishing a best-seller/modern classic, getting hired at a AAA video game studio, making it to the "big time" with your band, inventing the next iPhone, etc. Fill in the blank as appropriate. Or should we take Langston Hughes' words to heart?

Hold onto dreams
For if dreams die
Life is like a broken-winged bird
That cannot fly.

Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is a barren field
Frozen with snow.

I'm looking for some arm-chair-reader-friendly books on the following subjects.  A lot of what I've found on Amazon and in the library are either For Dummies type books or college textbook material and thusly kind of dry/not that entertaining/remarkably good at making fascinating subjects painfully boring.  Do you have any suggestions?

-The French Revolution

-Art History

-Chinese and East Asian history

-Greek Mythology

Are there any TV series characters that actually squick you/disgust you if you can't turn the channel fast enough? Brought to you by an episode of Two and a Half Men during which I almost got queasy from watching Alan interact with a woman.

It's Friday! How aware are you of art shows, festivals and special events going on in your town this weekend, and will you be attending any of them?
