In no particular order

1. Maria's balcony has the horniest pigeons ever. Nothing makes you realize more that you are not getting some that day than to wake up to the sounds of pigeons getting some. Okay okay maybe hearing another human being get some wouldbe worse.

2. Pieces of Ass is a horrible horrible play. I saw it last week and I imagine that it is rather like a shitty vagina monologues.It really really sucked. Throughout most of the play I couldn't help thinking that a lot of these girls problems would be solved if they had better female friends. The opening monologue has a girl bitching about how awful hot chicks are (her being a hot
chick) and how they pull each other apart, so much so that her friends convinced her to get a nose job. Now, I think I am fairly attractive and NONE of my friends (who are all attractive) have ever pulled me apart. If anything we stop each other from pulling ourselves apart. The monologues went down hill from there with occasionally breaths of humor. I have no clue why the customing involved so many fish net pantyhose. On top of it all, there was very little ass, in pieces of ass. Even the "fat chick" had a flat bum. Very teeny booties. The breaths of air were a girl who gave her entire monologue in french (so I understood not a word of it) and the "black chick" but her monologue was predictable. I knew from the get go where it would end up. They should let me write a monologue and bring my big ass on stage. However, I really don't know if I would want to be associated with the production; I for one do not mind being called "Eminetly fuckable", when I am dressed up like I wanna get fucked. P.S. The cast is easy on the eyes. I will give them that.

3. I have noticed, around the a law school that no one ask, "what are you doing for your bar exam trip?" They ask, "What are you doing this fall?" And it just reminds me that this is a group of people who are going to spend their entire lives planning the next step, the six months away, the next year and I get sad for them. Get sad that they are going to completely forget to live in the now, that they are going to miss out on some amazingly beautiful things because they are going to be trying to get the promotion, to make partner, to open their own practice. Life is gonna speed by them and they are gonna open their eyes one day and have lots of things but very little memories.

Outlets and the Outdoors

I love the outdoors. I mean I really love being outside. Growing up in the Hudson Valley was amazing. I would go over friends houses and they had kills (bigger than a creek smaller than a river) in their backyards and we would run around and splash through water and I loved it. I would go horseback riding through woods and hiking through the Shawangunk Mountains and just riding around outside in the fresh air on my bike and I loved it.

Now I go upstate and the ride out of the city alone destresses me. There is a point where the urban horizon become beautiful mountains. If you drive through bear mountain road you see waterfalls flowing out of rocks.

When I take the express bus it makes one stop--Woodbury Common Factory Outlets. On the most beautiful day there are tons of people getting off and on here. Never mind that whatever they spent on transportation negates what they save on clothes. Never mind that the outlet stores are so crowded you might as well be in the city. What makes me think that the people who spend gorgeous weekends walking around stores are truly dumb is the fact that right by the outlet are these great trails. And on these trails are some beautiful wildlife.

I don't get the psyche of the outlet shopper. When I go down to Florida John and I stay in this town called Destin. Destin has tons of outlets and we go and I am reminded that I hate shopping (especially when there are gorgeous white sand beaches nearby). We end up going to the bookstore, the record storeand we leave. (Gelato may or may not get consumed in this process).

I don't get the psyche of the super shopper. Give me a bike and some trees and I am a happy girl.

On a funny note. When I was home I saw not one but TWO cars with "I'ld rather be bow hunting" bumper stickers AND the local sports store, Gander Mountain, was having a Firearms and Safe Sale. I didn' tknow the two got sold together. Despite the real estate boom Orange County is still Orange County.

1. And your new Intelligence Chief isJohn Negroponte . I didn't have to search hard to find his apathy to human rights abuses. "When John Negroponte was ambassador he looked the other way when serious atrocities were committed. One would have to wonder what kind of message the Bush administration is sending about human rights by this appointment."

2. On a personal note After 3 session, 11 hours and a whole lot of pain my tattoo is finished. I can't wait to see what it looks like all healed.

3. In a conversation recently I said what I truly believe. A lot of being happy is just deciding you are going to be happy. As The Buddha said "The mind is the forerunner of all actions. All deeds are led by mind, created by mind. If one speaks or acts with a serene mind, happiness follows as surely as one's shadow follows one on a bright day."

Get your happy on. I love you all.

I have a purpose

Okay, it is not as if I didn't have a purpose before, but last night I realized my purpose. Due to a series of really random events I found out that there are no Planned Parenthood clinics in Puerto Rico. Not a one.

This is really awful. Regardless of how you feel about abortion Planned Parenthood provides needed medical services for women who wouldn't be able to afford them otherwise.

As you should know by now I am very pro birth control awareness and this information is just not disseminated well throughout the island. And pre-natal care is so important and so very expensive.


I am going to raise the money to open a Planned Parenthood Clinic in Puerto Rico. I know this is a big project. And I have to get in contact with people at Planned Parenthood to find out if it is in the works already BUT I am willing to take this project on. It is such a necessary thing.

Wish me luck.

Damn It

One of my worst fears was realized today as one of my law professors threw an algebra equation on the board. My instant response, my mind goes completely blank and I am overcome with a craving for french fries which I guess is better than wanting cigarettes.

The budget

Okay the budget is ridiculous. But I need to believe that Bush is pulling a Reagen and sending a ridiculous budget to the House because he knows they are not going to let him cut all the crap he wants to cut

Between the complete elimination of the federal perkins loan program
and the cutting of school vocational programs

our nations Children of Color should just be taught how to pick cotton cause it seems that that is what this President wants us to be doing

The Dorkiest Post I Will Write

How shitty must your software be for you to have to set aside an entire day for your customers to download the patches to fix the shit?
Read this This is utterly absurd.

On another dork note I am seriously thinking about getting the creative commons symbol tattoed on me.
This explains what the creative commons are. I would probably put it on my ankle or somewhere on my foot and it would be rather small. I just really believe in the creative commons movement and I like tattoos so hey what the hell

Okay Okay, this is the point where I am reminded I am "from the city"

Last week a 7 year old girl was killed in Highland Falls. Her body was found in a boys bathroom about an hour after her father dropped her off for school (she was stabbed multiple times). The father is black and a "former" drug dealer. His father is a former chief of police or something like that. The child's father was arrested for her murder.

But to me (and my mom and my cousin) somethings just don't add up. So here is the theory, at least in this house; we dont' think that he killed his daughter. We do think that his daughter was probably killed to punish him for something he did to another dealer. (Living in the city in the 80s this was a bit more common than in the current decade Orange County). I think that the cops just don't want to get involved in one drug dealers retaliation on another and they are sliding it all under the table and to boot they will get to execute a black convicted criminal (the child's father).

The accussed is in prison and refuses to take his seizure medication and it has been ruled that he can't go to his daughters funeral. This is all very sad but my mother and I just keep wondering if the cops are even considering another drug dealer as a possible suspect.

The Nominee for Attorney General

Being a Latina and a future lawyer a lot of people are asking me if I think it is a good thing that a Latino is the nominee for Attorney General. Then they proceed to tell me, if they are Latin as well, that it IS a good thing that a Latino is a nominee for Attorney General. To which all I can say is I would rather have no Latinos in the Cabinet than a Stupid Latino in the Cabinet and Alberto Gonzales is stupid. And that is all I have to say.
