The breakfast Carrin Alba prepared was simple--scrambled eggs and orange juice--but made, like most everything the 27-year-old Cerritos College student does, with great care. The table was set with place mats, matching napkins and silverware, and in the early morning sunlight her small kitchen looked immaculate. Every weekday morning before school, Carrin gets up at 8 to feed her two cats, Blackie and Shadow, and to clean the tidy four-bedroom house in Norwalk that she shares with a roommate.

For eight years, he did the fixing up and she did the cleaning and cooking and made the beer runs. Then they broke up. Five years later, an appeals court has agreed that Harlan Ray must give Linda Walsh $6,600 in housekeeping pay. "This opens the door for an argument that true roommates, not even boyfriend-girlfriend, could end up with the same results," said Ray's attorney, Daniel Berkos. Walsh and her two sons moved into Ray's home after they met in 1979.

It took a serious knee injury to her friend and roommate, Tina Hutchinson, to help make Dee Dee Duncan the complete player she is today. Duncan's turnabout came after she scored a career-high 24 points last December in the Aztecs' 77-73 loss to Southern Illinois in the Dial tournament championship game in which Hutchinson and center Toni Wallace were injured. "It was up to me," said Duncan, a junior criminal justice major.

Soon after she settled into her new dorm room at Cal State Northridge, Brittany Brockman figured she should give her new roommate fair warning: She's a bit of a neat freak. Her roommate, Leslie Rosales, 18, didn't make much of the admission. But she didn't know yet just how serious Brockman was. Brockman, 18, folds all of her clothes impeccably and organizes them by color. She doesn't like a dirty shower. And when the trash needs to be taken out, it needs to be taken out now .

Most tennis players swear they don't pay attention to a tournament draw. Just as they never look beyond "this match" and they don't care whom they play, intent only on "staying focused and playing my game." Right. But believe Lindsay Davenport when she says she doesn't look at the draw, because for her each match holds a potentially agonizing collision with one of her many pals on the tour. Seemingly each match is one she wants to win but against an opponent she doesn't want to beat.

I went to see " The Social Network" this weekend as a sort of anthropological mission. I was hunting for something in the story of Facebook's beginnings to help me understand the latest tragedy linked to cyber-bullying: the suicide of a Rutgers University freshman after his roommate used a webcam to secretly capture his sexual encounter with a young man, and broadcast it on the Internet.

When Thorsten Biermann arrived at the Florida Flight Training Center a year ago for a six-week course for an instrument license, he was pleased to be housed with three other German-speaking students in a school-owned apartment within walking distance of the airfield. One of his roommates, a congenial Lebanese, was even willing to cook most of the group's dinners and lend the others his red Mitsubishi--the only transportation the four students had.

A good Samaritan saved a Riverside County man being mauled by pit bulls by ramming his van through a chain-link fence and scaring the dogs away, officials said Tuesday night. The 53-year-old victim was being attacked by at least two dogs when the good Samaritan drove by the Lake Elsinore scene around 4:15 p.m. Tuesday, according to the Riverside County Department of Animal Services. "The dogs scurried away when the man's van busted through the gate," department spokesman John Welsh said.
