I hate sending out queries into the ether. You have no idea where they are really going, whether someone's really going to read it (and I equally hate read receipts, since people can often see that you've set one and then they wonder about how insecure you are that you have to know exactly when they've read your message.
The bad thing now is that I'll be continually checking my inbox every 2.5 seconds until I either a) get a response, b) don't get a response and give up, or c) keel over dead.
Anyway, I'm going to eat lunch.
My plant is still missing.
