But really, should I consider investing in a Macbook and leaving the PC as a strictly work-only machine? My job pays pretty well. I can technically afford it within a month or two, probably less if I really scrimp. Does anyone have experience with macbooks and can you help reassure me that it won't suck as hard as the mac I owned once, which liked to randomly turn the screen yellow-tinted monochrome, couldn't run more than 2 programs at once, and killed itself less than a year after I bought it?

The problem is that it's $42 a month over the budget I wanted to keep for a car payment.

I could probably haggle some, but it's not going to be for that big a drop.
TQC, should I still go for the car or walk away?

My best friend's jerk of a dad recently sent her a letter telling her he'd cut her out of his will because she'd been a bad daughter, etc etc. This is really the LEAST of what he's done.

How's your life?
I have 2 jobs. 1 is at Wal-Mart, part-time. The 2nd is as a bookkeeper for a construction company, starting out part-time, only 2 days a week.
I don't start either until next week.
Should I say to hell with the Wal-Mart job? I was contemplating working it until the bookkeeping thing turns into a full time job...but then again the bookkeeping thing pays $2.05/hr more than Wal-Mart.
What should I do to celebrate the new bookkeeping job?
My awesome father-in-law has offered to buy me a new camera, but I have to keep it around the $200 range. I was looking last night at Sam's Club and found 2 that I like..if you had to choose between a Kodak EasyShare or a Nikon, which would you pick?
Forgive me being so clueless, but I haven't worked in a long time, and this is really important to me.

Have you ever been to a job interview with a group? I've never encountered one of these, nor have I heard of 'group interview' until this one. What exactly do they do with a group?
Like, when I watch a movie/TV show I don't think of sets, costumes, actors, special effects (unless they're really bad), etc, I just see it as the story playing out. I do however have a lot of trouble letting little plot holes go. I went to see The Last House on the Left remake last night and kept finding myself thinking "What are these people going to tell the cops?" I wonder this a lot when watching horror/action movies.
Which leads me to my second question. I heard a story about a man who was robbed at knifepoint by three men. He was carrying a gun and fatally shot the first man, and then the second. The first was considered to be self-defense, but the jury pretty much let the other murder go, essentially because the guy deserved it. (I can't back this up with a news story, so if anyone else has a similar example that'd be great.)
In a morally ambiguous situation like this, what should the law do? Is it okay to murder someone just because they were doing something wrong, or in the case of Last House on the Left, torture and brutally kill people who tortured and brutally killed someone else?
Favorite type of cake?
The movie is about a magician.
He was banished from his town at some point in his movie. Or he was in hiding, one of those.
He had a secret clone machine. He used this machine during his magic acts, cloning himself and then killing and drowning the clone during his act.
There was a scene with many "cloned" top hats. And I think one cloned black cat.

The majority of these ladies are on weight watchers or some fad diet of the week, and at least once every two weeks they have a staff party of sorts at lunch/break time for random occasions (birthdays, retirements, holidays, etc.).
At these fiestas, they always have the MOST unhealthy, fattening and caloric foods, which leads to ALL of them talking ALL DAY about how guilty they are for eating it due to their respective diet plans. what do they keep doing this though? it seems so contradictory. do they secretly all love this food and feel like it's okay if they announce how guily they are and how many points each thing is?
so odd. thoughts?
ED: did i mention i work at the school HEALTH CENTER? jeebus.
And for the question, what's the last news you received, either in general or directly affecting you, that took you somewhat by surprise?
He doesn't go to my school, we don't work together, so we have to call to see each other and check up.
ETA: When I broke up with him, I told him I'd call him in a few days or a week. I am not trying to kick him when he is down, I just actually really care about him. I broke up with him because I felt like our relationship and level of commitment (serious) was too hard for how different we are, the different lives we live (he is 10 years older than me, I am in college about to graduate, etc.) We agreed to remain friends and still see each other... I would just like to talk to him that is all. (I do miss him a little bit).

I ask because most people will claim that it doesn't make any difference, one human life is worth as much as the next. But the reality is that statistically (and I don't have any studies to back this up, so for the sake of argument, let's just assume this is true) the vast majority of people are influenced by the status of the victim. Does this bother you?
So, how do you deal with problems with friends? For example, if they're doing something you really really don't like, or they have some weird personality defect, do you just pretend like it's not happening, or do you confront them about it in some fashion? How honest do you try to be with your friends?
I used to be pretty passive-aggressive and never told my friends when they were getting on my nerves. This always resulted in huge explosions of drama. Nowadays I'm upfront about everything and tell it to 'em straight, and it's still resulting in huge explosions of drama.

I took 2 years of German in school and I'm on my second semester in college. (I'm in the third class though because I tested out of the first.) I absolutely love the language and while I'm not spectacularly confident in speaking it, I think I could make do if I had to. I just wish more of my friends had taken German instead of Spanish.

I find that if I eat healthy/lower calorie foods my stomach starts hurting from hunger after a few hours even though I eat regular meals. For example, if I eat a bowl of bran cereal in the morning I'm hungry just a few hours later. And if I try to quell it with a small but dense snack (nuts and dried fruit or just a piece or two of fruit) that doesn't work. Is there anything that can sustain me that's low in calories or do I just have to wait until my stomach shrinks to stop being hungry?
Also I'm a vegetarian.
My boyfriend's mum has loaned me one of her favourite books to read, and about five chapters in I'm at a point where I absolutely can't continue. Or I could, but I hate returning other people's things all crusted in my vomit.
Now my boyfriend and I have been together for about a year, and I get along really well with his mum. I'd feel bad about lying to her about enjoying her favourite Jilly Cooper title. (I'd feel worse if she lent me the 400 other books she has by the same author.) But on the other hand, I don't want her to get the wrong idea if I tell her I really didn't get into the story. See, I'm kind of a nerd and she knows that, and I'm worried it'll look like I think I'm too smart for what she reads. The last fiction thing I read and enjoyed was Hard-Boiled Wonderland and the End of the World by Haruki Murakami. I don't think I'm too smart for it, it's just that glorified, epic romance novels written for bored housewives aren't really my thing. I find it exhausting trying to keep up with who slept with whom and the reasons why so-and-so left her husband for a jockey. This is the phrase that made me put down the book:
With his blond hair even whiter in the moonlight, and his long pale kindly face, Julian looked like the ghost of Abraham Lincoln who'd had a premonition he was about to be assassinated.
Anyway, I don't want to offend any fans of Ms. Cooper's (unfortunately massive) body of work. It's just not my thing. So, has anyone else been in this situation? What did you do? Should I lie and risk being quizzed on the plot, or worse being given more to read? Or should I just come clean and tell her that I didn't like it? It's just that I don't really want to fall out of favour with his mum, because she helps me out all the time and we see each other a lot... It's so much easier when your in-laws like you.
I did ask my boyfriend, and he said he didn't give a shit. Helpful.

My dog loves to eat, bark, poop and ~~*cuddle*~~ with me while we both watch TV. His name is Clover (Rover was just too typical).
There's a news report going around about the game right now. A policeman has stated that there's no reason for an adult to play the game, and any adult who does is obviously doing it because they're a pedophile. This game uses Wii Speak, which is their version of voice chat. A lot of kids do play, so this cop thinks adults only play because they're sick, twisted bastards.
I'll be 27 in a few weeks, and play with my boyfriend and our daughter. It's actually a lot of fun, and we're definitely not sick and twisted bastards.
