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.

It allows illegal aliens to apply for privately funded assistance. Assistance that I, as a legal resident, do not qualify for.
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 why the hell did I pay for college like a sucker?!
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.

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.

I'm at my favorite dive Mexican place, alone, playing on my phone, and a guy walked in, also alone, booping around on his phone, and he ordered the exact same thing as me.

White people, lol.

All the Dream Act does is allow illegal immigrants WHO MEET CERTAIN CONDITIONS and have been in the U.S. before they were 16 to ATTEND college -- not pay for it.

That's like saying since Mimi got a full scholarship, all women get free college.

There are several states that allow illegal immigrants to pay in-state tuition at the State Universities. That isn't free, but it is a LOT cheaper than out of state tuition.

My problem with that is that to qualify for in-state tuition one must live and work in the state (or be a minor going to school there for several years, which assumes parents who are living and working there) which means that you are paying taxes to support the university already. Some illegal immigrants pay taxes through payroll taxes and it is possible to receive a number from the IRS that is different from a social security number so you can pay income tax, but I would guess that a good majority of them work for cash so that there is no record of them being in the country and I would be interested in seeing the number of illegal immigrants who don't go through the hassle of becoming citizens, but register with the IRS so they can give more money to the government.

It is a difficult situation, though, because the students who grew up here are not responsible for their parents' actions and this is their home country, if not technically then at least in spirit.

Yeah, good luck with that. He is the epitome of posting BS, being asked to back it up, and then demanding that we prove him wrong. It's best to just assume he's full of sh|t 100% of the time.

He originally told me it would be around the end of the summer, but then mysteriously the person she's leasing from needs the place back so she had to move out now. Not sure if I buy that. ;)

I think it's too quick considering she has an 11yo daughter (who's spending the summer in MD with her dad, so she technically won't be there for the first 2 months-ish). But no one asked for my input, so... whatever. I do wish Jasper the best and if this doesn't work out, I hope he learns from it.
