It's the end of the world as we know it...

Politics, philosophy, the law, current events, left leaning debates, religion, baseball, football, pop culture, growing up Greek, random events in my life...whatever hits my mind at the time.


Coming soon - a report of Friday. But this ain't it.

The Ultimate Insult...
Now today, one of the paralegals here come up to me and said that I "look like a lawyer today." AAGH. Life as we know it is ending. OK, I’m wearing my glasses today because my contacts were bothering my eyes (still watering after an hour, and if you were curious how driving to work when you can’t see works, not well), and they are the thick black frames, slightly oval (but not oval enough to be the porn star librarian ones - you know what I’m talking about). And I’m wearing a red suit today b/c of Plaintiff’s deposition. But come on, I look like a lawyer?! She called it "the other side of me." Ugh! Crazy people!

Hey, this is what I have!! Go my and my safe self!! Next time someone criticizes me for not wearing my seat belt, I'm bustin' out this.


When I was 12-15, I was a soccer referee ($10 an hour!) I too got irritated when my calls were questioned by the parents. But this I never thought of!


George Eads!!
Whew! I was nervous that CSI would suck without Nick. Truth be told, I was ok with Sara being gone. But Nick? He’s quite possibly the most adorable man in the face of the earth. (Along with Jody Gerut.) I seriously could not picture the show without Nick. Thankfully, I don't have to.


Major props to Ricky Williams now
I want Ricky Williams life. The ability to say "fuck you" and walk away from something that doesn’t make you 100% happy. Granted, he has the money to do it, but how many people would still find an excuse.


Shove It!
So Heinz Kerry told a reporter to "shove it." Seriously, if I go off on opposing counsel one day, my answer to the Judge is going to be, "but if Cheney and Heinz Kerry can do it...) It’s almost as poetic as my "bite me."


Well, they always say that political candidates are asses.
I know that I’m a Democrat, but I’m not sure that even I could cast a vote solely b/c the candidate is a donkey. Literally.


"Come on Kids, It’s Electric Shock Time..."
I am not sure if I desperately want this electric shock game or if I am really scared of it.


Five Questions
31. If you knew that there would be a nuclear war in one week, what would you do? Call off work all week, trial be damned. Max out every one of my credit cards and take all the money in my saving account and travel. Whirlwind traveling - less than one day on each location (after the first day it took to get there, of course.) Not to Australia, though I’ve always wanted to go b/c it’s already tomorrow there, and it took a day to travel, so now there are only 5 days left. Figure out where I’d most like to die and stay there. Maybe see the Pyramids, which I wanted to go see in 2002 and my parents would not let me go alone b/c it wasn’t safe for a single American female. I’d be more reckless b/c if I died - oh well, right?

32. Would you accept twenty years of extraordinary happiness and fulfillment if it meant that you would die at the end of the period? Yes. First, twenty years is a pretty significant length of time. Second, pure happiness? Wow, that’s like sensory overload. I’d just pack a lifetime of fun into 20 years. I know that this somewhat contradicts my earlier answers that I’d want to live forever b/c there is not enough time to do everything we want to do. But I’ve already said I’m a walking contradiction.

33. What is the greatest accomplishment of your life? If there anything you hope to do that is even better? I actually hope that I haven’t achieved my greatest accomplishment, because short of learning all the words to It’s The End of the World As We Know It (and going down in a blaze of glory trying to showcase my skills this weekend), I don’t know that I’ve really accomplished anything of significance in the grand scheme of things. But I don’t know what I want to do when I grow up, so I’m not sure what I DO hope to accomplish. I’m going to be 30 years old, with a law degree, working as a Manager at McDonalds. (Did I ever mention my sophomore year of college, I needed a job and went to apply at McDonalds, and they were hiring, but I did not get the job. What does one do to get rejected from McDonalds? And I had worked there for 18 months in high school too!! That was the pinnacle of my failure in life as a human being, when I was deemed unqualified to even say, "Welcome to McDonalds, may I take your order please?" I digress...

34. What was your most enjoyable dream? Your worst nightmare? I don’t remember too many of my dreams. The ones that I do recall generally are not pleasant at all. So I’m not sure I have an enjoyable dream. The only ones I have are bad ones, I’m usually being chased or going to be killed. Lately, I’ve been dreaming about getting shot in the neck. Actually, it’s just the aftermath of being shot in the beck. It’s somewhat scary b/c that’s all it is - me grabbing my neck and trying to stop the blood from pouring out through my fingers, and knowing that I’m not going to be able to. I’ve no idea who shot me or why. The entire dream starts after I’ve been shot and lasts about 15-30 seconds. I once had a dream that I was married, but I don’t know to who. That was pretty scary too. ;-)

35. Would you give up half of what you now own for a pill that would permanently change you so that one hour of sleep each day would fully refresh you? Absolutely. First, I don’t own that much - most of what I own are bills! So please, take half of those! But seriously, since I’m young and starting out, I don’t own much at all. So it’s a very small price to pay. Then, I have that feeling (which I think is universally human, b/c lots of humans I know have that feeling, whereas my cats do not appear to have that feeling) that 24 hours a day just isn’t enough to get done all that needs to be done. That we need more time. The person who is lying on his deathbed after 110 years is still thinking, "I need more time." But you can’t just order more time like a pizza. However, this is a way to cheat time of sorts. I would give up half of what I own and never regret that decision.
