q poll - A poll conducted by Quinnipiac University.

e.g., You're trying to persuade me to change my mind by citing results of a Q Poll? Fuggeddaboudid, MadamDeb. You're barking up the wrong tree Â… again. | Never have seen a Q Poll that I trusted and I'm not going to start now. "Andrew S. Tanenbaum, the founder of the poll-analysis website, compared major pollsters' performances in the 2010 midterm Senate elections and concluded that Quinnipiac was the most accurate, with a mean error of 2.0 percent." Hard to accept that conclusion about any Q Poll -- largely because the polling data comes primarily from 150+ QU students. I simply don't trust college students not to cook the books, especially college students in the Northeast.

quaaltagh - (In Manx, pronounced (I think) KWAL-ta, though literalist Americans will likely say KWAL-tog; n.) A Manx word for 1. the first person you meet after leaving your house for the day, or 2. the first person you meet (from outside your home) after the beginning of the New Year; and now, 3. the first person you run into after any particular, usually momentous, event. [Historically, the Quaaltagh was the old custom of groups going door to door at Christmas or New Year caroling and asking for treats. Then it became the word for the first person to enter the house on New Year's day (one source says it meant "the first foot." It finally came to mean the first person met after the New Year, after some special occasion, or after leaving home for the day.]

e.g., I remember my quaaltagh after 9-11 ... or do I? It felt like I'd been slugged in the stomach or dosed with chloroform. I remember we all just sat in our offices staring at either our computer screens or the empty sky. I htink i spoke with one of the new associates, but all we said was something like "Can you believe this?" These days, the quaaltagh after I leave the house is the receptionist at my podiatrist's office or a grocery store clerk.

A post-operative examination of his original heart valve showed that a replacement was not necessary.
