New Year’s Resolutions

  1. Drink more water and less caffeine.
  2. Get - and stay - on schedule with my bar review stuff.  Oh yeah, and pass the bar, too.
  3. Stop cursing.  (Okay, I don’t curse often, but even infrequently is too much!  It’s not lady-like.  I am also eliminating “gosh” and “OMG” from my vocabulary.  It’s just too close!)
  4. Do laundry weekly, rather than waiting until I am literally out of clothes and then having to devote an entire day to it.
  5. Be better about staying in touch with friends back home - call more!
  6. Get organized and get things done on time.
  7. Be punctual.  (This is definitely going to be the toughest.  It is, like, against my nature to be on time for anything.)
  8. Devote at least 30 minutes per day to reading the Bible and praying.
  9. Stop biting my nails.

I’ve missed you!

Hi y’all!  Merry Christmas!  Sorry for the long absence - I’ve been getting all moved in down in Dallas and settling into the new job, but I’ve been missing you all (and will be getting to the questions soon, I promise!) and will be back as soon as possible!

(Though right now I am dealing with the fact that I am kind of snowed in back home, my flight was cancelled, and I’m supposed to be back at work tomorrow morning… which isn’t really going to happen.)

But thanks for your patience, I hope you’re all having very festive Christmases, getting psyched for the new year, and I will return shortly with lots more loveliness!



I am (still) in the process of going through all the junk I have accumulated over the years, because I am (hopefully) moving out soon, and my parents are moving as well and probably don’t want to have to ship all these random things halfway across the country.

I never realized how many movies I owned on, like, actual VHS.  Yeah, remember that?  I am getting rid of all of them, as I don’t think I even own a VCR, but I have come across some pretty wonderful movies from my childhood I had totally forgotten about.  For instance:

Return to Oz (1985)

Return to Oz was my all time favorite movie as a kid.  More so even than the original.  I begged my parents for a pet chicken for years.  In retrospect, though, this movie was actually kind of disturbing.  Giving Dorothy (who is somehow younger in the sequel) electroshock therapy in a super creepy mental institution simply because she had an active imagination?  Not to mention the witch who keeps an entire room full of severed heads.

Return of the Killer Tomatoes (1988)

Another movie I was strangely obsessed with as a kid.  Though I definitely did not recall George Clooney was in it!  Now if only I could find all the killer tomatoes toys I had…

Labyrinth (1986)

David Bowie dancing around in tights (which left very little to the imagination) with a stolen infant singing “Dance Magic”?  Yes, please.

The Adventures of Milo and Otis (1989)

Well, at least I liked one normal children’s movie.


On Tuesday, I interviewed at a firm in Chicago.  It was a nightmare - my flight out there was delayed almost 3 hours, causing me to be late.  Overall, though, I think it went all right.  I don’t know… really, for me, the most memorable thing about the entire interview was that one of the lawyers I met with was wearing the gorgeous Chanel J12 diamond white ceramic watch I have been drooling over for months.

In fact, I was planning on asking for (read: demanding) this watch for Christmas (I was really good this year)… until I saw this:

Yup, that pretty much ruined it for me.  In fact, I am still feeling quite nauseous at the realization that I actually had similar taste in something as this “woman.”  Clearly, though, I was very mistaken when I thought this watch was elegant.
