Seriously: When do "lo" and "la" mean "him" and "her" instead of "it." HELP!

I've studied spanish off and on forever. Immersion-wise, otherwise. The one thing that kills me is object pronouns. Help me figure out when I should use "la/lo" and when I should use "le." (Specifically I have trouble with this when referring to another human being.) [more inside]

I need to know common Spanish phrases for informal conversation.

Can you tell me some common phrases in spanish that are used in everyday conversation? For example, the other day I asked a friend how to say "That works for me" in informal conversational spanish. He said that "sale," "orale," and "ya esta" are all roughly synonymous with the English phrase I used. One obvious point is that none of these is a direct translation. I'm looking for that sort of thing. [more inside]
