Is ~900 words too long for a Statement of Purpose which lists its only length requirement as "a minimum of 500 words"? I have no idea which part I'd excise these words from, and I'm freaking out.

(This is for a graduate program in library science, if that makes a difference at all.)

If someone in your family dies, who do you pick to be pallbearers--family members, or family friends?

My boyfriend's neighbor died yesterday, and he was asked to be a pallbearer. He thinks it should have been someone in his neighbor's family, and I said that in both of my grandparents' case, it was family friends, not members of the family.

I had another death question, but I forgot it, I'm so tired right now.

Hey,

This weekend is my 6 month anniversary with my boyfriend and we agreed to get each other a nice inexpensive gift. I need some help on deciding what I can get for him. He likes music (mostly rap and hip hop), sport related movies, the NFL team Dallas Cowboys, hmm that's all I can think of now. The only store nearby here is Target so I can only get the gift from there. Any ideas will be greatly appreciated!!!

[black_doll]
My good friend is turning 40. This is a big deal for her, for years she's talked about it and having a trip with just us gals where we go away for the wekeend and have fun.

So her birthday is in a month and we are all going out of town. She's rented a sea-side cottage for 4 days.

I've known her for about gosh 8 years or so now. We aren't AS close as we used to be but there is no bad blood or anything, just life and being busy has happened.

Sooo any suggestions on a gift for her? She has everything she would want I imagine. I also (of course) don't have a huge amount of money to spend, especially since this weekend trip will set me back a few hundred dollars.

I just can't think of anything significant to get her. In the past I'd get her candles, picture frames, photo albums, non-descript stuff like that.

Help!

(edit - just saw the other "gift idea" post behind me...crazy!)

Edit again Now I am thinking like a pass for a day spa or something. Facial, massage, etc.....granted that's something I would love....

Do you think morticians feel sorry for people on their exam table that have died by means of drunk driving, drug use, alcohol poisoning, suicide...etc?

If you were a mortician, would you feel sorry or bad for any of the above?

I don't think I would. They're the ones that chose to drive drunk, get high, off themself...etc. I would feel bad for their family, however. This can be a severely complicated question, though.

What is your number one priority in life?
Is it your s/o? Your job? Money? Your hobbies? Yourself?
How have your priorities changed over time?

Another question.
When someone who is in a committed relationship cheats, do you think it's selfish of them to tell their partner?
Are they doing it just to clear their own conscience so they don't have to live with it? Or is it admirable that they tell their partner?

I think that if my husband cheated on me, I wouldn't want to know. I would think if he told me, that he WAS being selfish.
If he loves me and he just faltered in a moment of weakness...I don't need to know. It would just hurt me.
But at the same time, if I asked him about it because I thought it might have happened, I wouldn't want him to lie to me.

[mood |confusedconfused]

I just got an e-mail from a friend about May 1st and how it's going to be a National Day of Action against the immigration laws. It wasn't the type of e-mail you might expect (or at least the one I would expect to get) explaining about the boycott, it was an e-mail telling the "Mexicans" to go home and the "Real Americans"(TM) to buy things on May 1.

Here is the text of the articleCollapse )

What do you think about this?? What do you think about the immigration laws? Have you participated in a protest? Do you plan on boycotting? or not? Why? What about these so-called "problems" illegal immigrants cause? Yes this is American centered, for the Non-Americans: do you have immigrations problems? How are they dealt with?

Im generally pretty confused, I understand the frustration of the immigrants and the people who encounter these "problems" but I see no point in purposely trying to sabotage a peaceful boycott.

Low prices are always great but I'm really looking for reliability. I'm always wary when it comes to buying things from new sites.

I've never had a problem with http://www.jr.com and http://www.overstock.com , but their selection isn't excellent.

Part One:


Imagine you and your significant other are lost in the desert.
You have been struggling for days and are close to death, lacking both food and water.

Would you:

1. Let your loved one drink your urine?

2. What if you did not have a cup?



Part two:


Imagine you and your significant other are lost in the desert.
You have been struggling for days and are close to death, lacking both food and water.

In a final act of desperation, you hand a cup to your loved one and ask for a drink. They oblige, though they have little urine to spare, being so dehydrated. As they hand you the cup, it slips and your last chance at prolonging survival immediately disapears into the desert sand.

WHAT DO YOU DO???
