I felt a weeeensy bit bad for all those Bruins fans that had to stay up until 1 a.m. only to be horribly disappointed. But then I was so fired up, I don't think I fell asleep until an hour and a half after the game ended anyway.
Oh heck no! I didn't feel bad for the Bruins fans. I was excited the Hawks won.

They better win in regulation time next work day night game. Screwing up my sleep!

Get game, though.

Triple OT! I didn't make it but a few minutes into 1OT so I checked the score this morning and texted my friend who you met... totally forgot about the time difference. She just answered me a few minutes ago.
:)
I watched the whole thing. It made the ending that much better b/c I really need to get some sleep.

It was like: Yes! Okay. Now I have to settle down and sleep.

Whereas if I was an illegal immigrant or other minority, I'd have gone for free.
Next thing you know, people are gonna start wanting free healthcare.
I'm smelling a scam.
If you went to an Illinois university that wasn't private, you woule have paid tons more if it wasn't funded.

As for the illegal immigrnat status or other minority, you're just being crazy.

Then I can only speak for NJ, but the words are used interchangeably here and while it can be awarded, it rarely is.

Okay. You're probably right. I can't speak for everyone. I just know someone who just went through a divorce, married 25 years. Has to pay her husband maintenance and he works and earns $100,000 a year -- but she makes a lot more. And he gets half her 401k and all her retirement things. And he doesn't pay child support. He doesn't have to.

Did you read it? The act doesn't pay for college, it paves the way for legal status, as long as certain requirements are met. One of which is going to college, the other is military service. As a matter of fact, they are not even eligible for Pell Grants, which you were. As far as I can tell states are passing this separately.
Oh yes, they must be a good moral character, which you, fortunately, didn't have to prove.
It allows illegal aliens to apply for privately funded assistance. Assistance that I, as a legal resident, do not qualify for.

I'm waiting for the service guy from the TV company to get here. They have 15 minutes left in the window or I get a $20 credit.

It is now pouring rain and I am sympathetic to anyone who has to work outside or drive around from site to site in this weather. Still, I have to pick up E from school around 11.45, so I don't have a lot of time to deal with their delays.

Things I don't need to read about on FB - that today is your mammogram appointment. That doesn't invite discussion, it just tells us too much about your private life.

Go to Topix (or another forum) if you want to have a discussion about thoughts and concerns regarding your mammogram.

I've got a friend giving the play by play on what she can and cannot eat in her first trimester of pregnancy right now and what the various foods do to her.

I'm happy she's finally pregnant, but sheesh. Can't *wait* for pics of the kid's first diaper blowout.

Also, she was posting about foods before she even announced she was pregnant. So we all had to feign surprise when she did announce it.

Bullsh|t! You can apply for anything you want to apply for. PRIVATELY funded means just that...NOT TAXES!!! It is a private loan. If you qualify, you qualify, if you don't you don't and the criteria is up to the lender and not mandated by the government.

ALL universities have financial aid, some public (all "University of....'s" rely on tax dollars because they are public (read: not privately) funded so that everyone has access to an education, but even uber private universities (e.g Princeton) offer financial aid packages if they want you badly enough. I know this because no way no how can I pay the 65K per year they want, but they are offering me full private (read: not taxes) funding for grad school.

Did you even go to college?

Facebook is the devil's plaything. My friend J had a minor meltdown over her new boyfriend's ex "liking" stuff on his page. My friend L has a friend who posted a very passive-aggressive and immature comment about her recently (it doesn't name names, but L and I both knew it was about her).

Jasper and PMS became Facebook-official a few days ago.

Then prove it. Are some of you still suggesting I might be wrong about something? Have we learned nothing by now?

I am FB friends with my Dad's cousin. He posts the most vile things about his sisters and their families, blaming them for his father's death and claiming they are taking advantage of his mother (who divides the year between their houses). I don't know if he doesn't realize that everyone can see his rants or just doesn't care.

He is such a train wreck that I can't bring myself to unfriend him, though.
