Modern Living

Lately, as I go shopping I have noticed that all of the price tags have dissapeared. This doesn't bother me all of the time, if the price is clearly marked near the product I could care less. The price, however, is not always near the product. So there I stand in stores trying to decide between two items and I can't make a fully informed decision. This is even more annoying because now there are radio tags on the items and if companies wanted to they could track where the item goes after it leaves the store (ie my house). I can only imagine how annoying this is for a mom with a squawking child who wants a toy in the grocery store and the mom may want to buy the toy but can't figure out how much it'll cost and doesn't have much extra cash.

The only reasonable course of action I can think of is this. From now on when I am in a store and I cannot decide between products, because I don't know the price, I am just going to bring both items to the counter. I am going to make the cashier tell me the price on both items and ponder my decision then and there. Maybe if I annoy enough people they will properly inform consumers of the prices.

1985...confessional post

No, I didn't always want to be a lawyer or a poet. When I was a kid, for the longest time my biggest aspiration was to be the chick in the rock video. You know the chick, the one dancing on top of the car, in the car, in the classroom....I wanted to be her so friggin bad. The 80s were so much more forgiving for body types, I actually stood a chance in the video world. But alas, silicon comes along and I am forced to get a JD.

P.S.
Go see Bowling For Soup's 1985 video, and I can so understand it, I'm actually afraid that one day I'll end up doing what "she" does. It is hilarious. You can see it on launch for free http://launch.yahoo.com

Fact Patterns

Occasionally when I am researching for work I come across a case where the fact pattern makes me laugh my ass off.

So here is a warning. When engaged in international drug running DO NOT pay for everything along your route in traveler's checks. Your signature will be used against you.

I've posted this before and I may post it again cause it is good reading

1 Corinthians 13

Love

If I speak in the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I am only a resounding gong or a clanging cymbal. 2If I have the gift of prophecy and can fathom all mysteries and all knowledge, and if I have a faith that can move mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. 3If I give all I possess to the poor and surrender my body to the flames,but have not love, I gain nothing. 4Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5It is not rude, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth. 7It always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres. 8Love never fails. But where there are prophecies, they will cease; where there are tongues, they will be stilled; where there is knowledge, it will pass away. 9For we know in part and we prophesy in part, 10but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears. 11When I was a child, I talked like a child, I thought like a child, I reasoned like a child. When I became a man, I put childish ways behind me. 12Now we see but a poor reflection as in a mirror; then we shall see face to face. Now I know in part; then I shall know fully, even as I am fully known. 13And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love.

WHAT? That's Crazy!!

I have heard that phrase this weekend more then I have ever heard it in my life and it ain't cause I threw a pumpkin into the east river early sunday morning (though it was a small pumpkin).

Six months ago I broke up with the love of my life because it didn't seem we wanted the same thing. Or really because he didn't know what he wanted. It was the hardest thing I've ever done in my life. Over the course of six months I went from never wanting to see him again, to never wanting to speak to him again, to knowing that I would never get over him.

Dating had been insane (and in some cases flat out terrible) and it all seemed so pointless. I told a ton of people I never plan on getting married (and that was probably cause I knew John was the love of my life and he didn't want to marry me).

This weekend John proposed, over the phone as much of our relationship has been over the phone, and I said yes.

I am shocked myself. But I KNOW this is right. I know very few things.

p.s. I have to say a special thanks to Oscar, I almost backed out of going to see John two weeks ago and Oscar sat in the hall of Bar 13 with a hysterical me telling me that I had to go or else I would wonder for the rest of my life. He missed most of a feature he really wanted to see but I swear it was worth it O.B.

I love you guys. And I love you John

Ass Cleavage

Okay, if you don't know there is a difference between ass cleavage and ass crack.

Ass cleavage is rather similar to breast cleavage. It happens when a girl has a large AND round ass. Buying pants for that type of ass is exceedingly difficult and you end up with a bunch of excess material around your waist (so that you can get the pants over your ass). No matter what type of belt you wear when you sit the pants will stick out in the back revealing your beautiful ass cleavage. Be proud of it.

Ass crack is when you have a flat ass and don't bother wearing a belt to keep your pants up and so your pants slide down and people see your crack. Cover that shit up.

have a nice day

random

1. I thought that this past monday was probably one of the best monday's at bar 13 ever. it is not just my acentos coming through. lots of people read new pieces on the open mic and several of the new pieces were exceedingly exceedingly good (eliel, matt I am pointing at you).

2. the law school has become even stranger than normal. maybe it is because the ethics exam in friday and for me and my classmates it signals that we are just one step closer to out of here.

3. how did the temperature drop so fast? i mean i understand the science but why would God do this to us.

4. brother is moving to california very soon going home tonight to say goodbye to him :-(

5. i will be hostessing at the restaurant saturday night. come by for five dollar drinks. i get off at eleven

A quote to Ponder

From Chapter 39 of Charles Dickins Bleak House (this book should be in the public domain so you should be able to find it online....hopefully)

"But injustice breeds injustice; the fighting with shadows and being defeated by them, necessitates the setting up of substances to combat; from the impalpable suit which no man alive can understand, the time for that being long gone by, it has become a gloomy relief to turn to the palpable figure of the friend who would have saved him from this ruin and make him his enemy."

this morning

I woke up in my mother's house
turned on the news
and cried
i got so emotional
that when my mother walked in
she started apologizing profusely for not being a registered voter

it is not so much the presidency and the house as well
and realizing how divided my nation is so deeply divided
and wondering how we got so out of touch with one another

Florida

A lot of you are going to ask me how my trip went and really not all of it is meant to be shared. It was beautiful, like a movie beautiful.

With white sand, water blue and clear, sun shining down, hot enough to nap without making you sweaty and it was so empty that I got to float on the water topless and feel the sun against my body and the ocean carrying me.

And my mood, the energy I am carrying with me right now is really beyond words.
