Thanks. I actually thought of that name after watching my favorite reality show America's next top model.  But Now I am kind of pissed because I am going to miss all of my favorite shows because of classes and studying. So I am planning to make one more pre-law investment: A Tivo.

I'm seriously torn about whether I should leave my TiVo with my parents and not bring it to law school. I bought an 80 hour over a year ago. It seriously has been the best gadget I've ever owned. I use it all the time everyday. And with 80 hours, it fills up with a lot of shows. I watch more TV than before, but it's all stuff I like. It's better than wasting time watching crap or channel surfing. And always having 5 episodes of Seinfeld, Family Guy, and The Simpsons can't hurt, right? That is, unless you're in law school!

So other than the distraction factor, I hightly recommend the product to anyone.

I figured it was about time. What's your name, AuburnChick?

I won't tell Her Honor what you said. Trust me, Judge Judy's real, and I have the signed autograph to prove it! (It's definitely getting framed and going in my study as inspiration throughout the year.)

OK, gotcha. Right on.  :)

did anyone watch when o'reilly interviewed her on his show?  I never thought someone could make bill look like a democrat, or that a fellow conservative could rouse bills anger.

She's been on there a few times. But yeah, I had always bought the accusations that Bill is right-wing until I saw him interview her.

Isn't the bigger one easier to navigate? 4 gigs should be plenty of space, but you may want to consider the interfacing options as well.

Same interface. Just smaller screen and wheel on the mini. I'm listening to my 20 gig I got from right now. I'm a proud papa.

around 6.68 lbs

Your package weights 6.68 lbs?  That seems a bit heavy to me too.


Seriously though, most laptops sold nowadays, especially the ones on sale are unacceptably heavy. If I end up buying another laptop, I'm definitely getting the lightest one possible. I really just need one with wireless, a nice screen, and a keyboard. I'm thinking I might just get a PDA with a keyboard. But I keep hearing that PDAs are being phased out soon and will be a thing of the past as laptops get smaller.

I notice that no one has voted for "Respected Conservative Political Commentator." Hmmmm...

I just went for it, although, I definitely with agree with whoever mentioned that she says a lot of things for shock value. I think she's sincere in her belief that she is right about everything. Her commentary on Daily Show college liberals is spot-on, at least from my experience in college. A lot of what she says is bait basically to enrage certain liberals. And then a lot of it is for entertainment value. value = $

I'm definitely considered conservative, and I had a little trouble reading her most recent book. Again, I think she's trying to be entertaining and promote discussion by sounding like such a know-it-all. But it's annoying to hear someone not grant anything or concede any point to liberals. Conservatives are not right all the time.

I'll have to get you over and lay down some tracks. I't pretty cool after you lay down a bass line, and a couple of guitar tracks.

Sounds great!

 Why did ya'll go with WC? I'm hearing such good things about them, they are probably number one on my list to look at places.

 What size did everyone go with and how far is it from school.

 For those that have been there, is it worth the rent as compared to other places ya'll looked at.

 House hunting from Honduras is a pain-in-the-ass!!!!!

I sent you some flyers via email that Heidi sent me to help you compare.

I saw the 2 bed / 2 bath models at WC and The Oaks and they seemed really spacious to me. The Oaks was the closest, maybe 5 minutes down the road from Samford. But WC wasn't that much further down the road, and in fact it's closer to the grocery store, Sams, Wal-mart, etc. I think that's the appeal of it. Plus, it's gated with all the amenities.

WC couldn't guarantee anything less than a 2 bed / 1 bath for Aug at this point. The Oaks was filling up its 1 beds as soon as they came in.

And as I mentioned in an earlier post, there are plenty of places available north of campus and closer into Birmingham proper. But the locations are a lot crummier and it seems like more traffic to deal with. If you're wanting closeness and comfort at any price, the Oaks seems the way to go. WC is a year older or so and just a little further away for a better price.

Hey slaw, You can take the pro of the oaks having fireplaces off the list, mine at WC has a fireplace. I didn't ask for it, and probably will be paying more for it, but I am sure I will use it at some point.

Good gravy. I guess "Slaw" is gonna stick with you from now on, eh, Sara? Check your facebook messages. I switched to WC.  ;D But I will comply with your request nevertheless and give it the ol' strikeout.
