Is there such a thing as a short-term lease on a car?

I got a new gig! Hooray! It takes 2 hours to get to via bus! Boo! It takes 30 minutes if I had a car. Hmm! Here's the Q: Is there such a thing as a 'short term' car lease (i.e., 3-4 months) or a long-term rental? Is there a cost effective option? I'd be saving around 3 hours a day, so it really, really makes sense. What're my options?

Dating someone but it's not as fun as I'd like it to be

I've recently had my fourth date with a guy that I met online. Whilst I feel a definite connection with him, and there's a 'spark' so to speak, I don't feel like we have loads to talk about, or that the conversation flows as naturally as it could, and I also don't feel like we have as much silly fun as I'd like to have. Is this the kind of thing that could grow with time...? More details below. [more inside]

I really miss the affection, romantic interest and even just the regular physical touch of another human being.

How do I invest $40,000 for one year for a non-profit corporation?

How do I invest $40,000 for one year for a non-profit corporation? The non-profit art space that I started recently recieved a couple grants amounting to about $40,000. Yay! We will spend all the money gradually over the course of this year. Initially I thought I could open an account with ING Direct or Emigrant Direct, but they do not offer accounts to corporations, only personal accounts. Our bank's interest rate is terrible and I'm sure we can do better. Does anyone have any advice for short term, near zero risk investing?
