I'm looking to purchase a new laptop for my siblings for Christmas, except my entire computer experience thus far has been with Dell.
What brands would you recommend, TQC?
Reviews are telling me Lenovo is useless. There are some Acers that are in my price range (trying to stay under $400CDN, preferably with Office included, but I realize that's a pretty long shot) and other than that...I have no idea.

hey ppl, i graduated (degree) almost 3 months ago.. back in my home country now. i havent really applied for jobs cos i dont really know which field i wanna go in and as for masters, i think i wanna wait a while, like get some working experience.. i dont know, these days im completely idle and i spend the rest of my time at home, watching movies and sleeping and its boring and depressing. i seem to have lost motivation in doing something. like im really into sth, i do it with much dedication but then i lose interest. im at this point of my life, where i dont know what i want, who i am and where i will be. makes me feel low, inexistent. did u ever feel that way? any suggestions??
My closest friend*'s birthday was a month ago. She's the spiritual-hippie-mystical type so I got her some sage to burn. I spent like $3 on it, she knows I'm very broke. I mentioned to her on the phone (in early November) that I had gotten her a small gift. But I haven't seen her since before her birthday because she's always busy, and the other night I ended up burning the sage myself. Now my birthday is coming up this weekend and she called me yesterday talking about getting me a present. I feel bad because I used hers.
Do I need to get her a new present, or would it be okay to be like "hey I used your present because a month went by and I didn't see you, let's go to Starbucks and I'll get you anything you want to make up for it"?
*I say "closest friend" and not "best friend" because while there's nothing in the world we wouldn't tell each other and love each other a lot we're not really part of each others' personal lives, don't have much in common, don't see each other a lot, and catch up on the phone a few times a month. we've known each other since 3rd grade and feel probably more sisterly than friendly toward each other. if any of this makes a difference.
Say you just found out you've been rejected from something that you've dreamed of doing for YEARS and were really excited about. Now a bunch of your plans are in shambles as well. Is there anything a good friend of yours could say or do that would make you feel less bummed out?
Edit: assuming this friend does not live anywhere near you/anything in-person is out.
A while ago while walking to the train I ran into one of my roommates (who I get along best with) on the street. He asked if anyone had asked about/for him and I said no. He then asked that, if anyone did ask for him, that I tell them he doesn't live here/I do not know who he is. I said ok and didn't ask more because I was in a rush/not my business but...for kicks and giggles, why do you think he asked such a thing of me? non srs answers preferred xP

Last week on Thursday I discussed with my therapy group the fact that I isolate myself, and that being there 3 days that week was the first time I'd been around that many people since September. There was one person who was not there on Thursday when I was speaking, Andy. On Monday I was talking about how I'd waited until the last minute Sunday to write a Psychology paper and I was disappointed in myself. They were all asking me WHY I'd waited until the last minute and one of my reasons was because I was exhausted from being around people all week (which was true). Andy kind of chuckled. It really hurt my feelings (which I know sounds stupid to normal people), but I realize he wasn't there when I'd discussed the isolation.
Should I bring it up with him several days later (since I'm still thinking about it), or try to just let it go?

I am currently working up some symbols to work into a half sleeve tattoo. I want to represent books that I read and loved and one of them is Feed by Myra Grant. I know a lot of you have read it and I was wondering what items seem to really represent the novel for you?
There are a few things I can think of but they don't mesh well with the other symbols I'm using. I am also open to phrases from the book.
For the past several weeks, all the bananas in every store I visit are like grass-green and they're barely ripe enough to eat a week after I buy them. Even bananas that appear less green are still gross inside, like they just got bruised while green but never ripened. For weeks! What's up with this?
