New Phone

Posted on January 19, 2009
I am counting the hours until my new phone arrives. I currently have a Samsung Glyde which SUCKS MORE THAN I CAN EXPRESS!! The touchscreen is such shit. It is completely possessed and pushes buttons all by itself. I have had the software upgraded. I have had the phone replaced...

While pulling out of Starbucks tonight, I saw a man in a sailor hat happily chomping on a giant ear of corn. WTF?

I hate Starbucks cups!

Posted on January 19, 2009
Why is it that I pay over $2 for a normal, boring drip coffee at Starbucks, but they cannot make a lid that doesn't leak all over?! Every single time I get coffee there I have to stuff a napkin under the rim of the cup so I don't end up wearing my cup of joe...

Now this I could do

I always say that I don't know what I would do for a living if I wasn't a Public Defender.That is no longer true. I could do this job:Island Caretaker!!The tourism board of Queensland Australia has come up with an ingenious idea. They are going to pay some lucky person over $100K for 6 months of vacation...

How did I get to be such a shoe and handbag junkie? I don't know exactly, however what I DO know is that this is my new yummy Cole Haan Genevieve Triangle Tote in suede and patent weave. Hooray!

These just came in the mail for me. Le sigh. How lovely are they?!

Best misunderstanding of a name. EVER!

Posted on January 16, 2009
Guy on the phone: Ok, come by in 15 minutes.Me: Ok.Guy on the phone: Wait, what's your name?Me: Heather.Guy: Ok, Pebbles. See you in 15.WTF?!?!?!?

You know what I think?

Fuck this.:)

Creepy or adorable?

Posted on January 14, 2009
You be the judge. Personally, I think that baby orangutan is the cutest thing ever.

Congrats to my smarty-pants brother who earned outstanding grades in his first semester of law school!!Way to go!

WTF award of the week

Man Accused of Selling Daughter For Cash and Beer.Wow. I wonder what kind of beer it was. I hope it was imported, at least.

Nothing says lifelong love like a Nachos Bellgrande combo meal

Posted on January 13, 2009
This classy couple got married at drunk/stoned munchie heaven, Taco Bell. I think that this marriage will be a lot like Taco Bell; it sounds like a really good idea in the beginning, but later you always regret it. Good luck, lovebirds!

What happen to fishsticks and boxed milk?

I want the Obama family to adopt me. No, not just so I can have a Secret Service codename (it would be Sassafrass, fyi), but for the sole purpose of attending school with the little ones. Check out the lunch menu at the Sidwell Friends School. (Linkalicious here...

There seems to be a theme around here today...

I don't mean to be a stickler, but... Does Priscilla Presley's wedding gown mannequin REALLY have to have huge erect nipples? Grossness.

Oh my Jesus!!!

I haven't posted enough commentary on pop-culture happenings lately, so here goes:Patricia Arquette! HOLY CRAP! No more push up bras/corsets/breast implants/breastfeeding for you. This tomfoolery must end.

I have no words

Posted on December 31, 2008
I present to you, the Denny's Rockstar Menu!IMHO, the "Hooburrito" is the saddest. Seriously, are these bands even remotely cool OR new? I have no immediate plans to 'eat like a rockstar' at Denny's anytime soon - as in NEVER.

I'm an angry girl

Posted on December 28, 2008
I have always had a pretty short fuse. However, in the last year or so I find that I have almost no fuse whatsoever. It is not that I have a short fuse about everything. I can deal with huge amounts of work-related chaos at once without as much as batting an eye...

I remember seeing the infomercials for this shit in the 80's. It is awesome and scary all at once. I don't know what rules more; her hair, her leotard, the music, the face exercises.

George Bush is inspirational

Posted on December 21, 2008
Well, it's more like the guy who hurled his shoes at our lame duck that is inspiring people.For instance, he has inspired men to offer their daughters in marriage:Father Offers Daughter To Shoe-ThrowerAlso, a video game has been created based on the incident...

Oh refrigerator, why have you forsaken me?

Posted on December 17, 2008
The refrigerator broke!! We just got this thing 3 years ago. Now the compressor has gone and died and it has been about 4 days of no refrigeration whatsoever. This is starting to become a real problem. You do not even notice how often you go into your frig until the thing is the exact same temperature inside as it is out...

But, I thought it didn't even rain here?

Posted on December 17, 2008
In a splendid turn of events, I got snowed OUT of work today!! How the hell is this possible?? I have never experienced a "snow day" in all of my life, so I was tickled pink at the thought of staying home.br /br /Although I wish I could have done something really exciting with my unexpected day off, instead I have spent it curled up on the couch with a box of tissue under one arm and a box of span class="blsp-spelling-error" id="SPELLING_ERROR_0"Mucinex/span D under the other...

Christmas Favorites

Posted on December 15, 2008
Ok, my Christmas cheer has improved since my last posting. In celebration of the fact that I have a beautiful, delicious smelling tree in my living room, I ranked my favorite Christmas movies and songs:Movies:1. Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer (yes, the claymation one)2...

Bah Humbug!

Is it just me, or were the holidays waaaaay more fun when you were a kid?I am starting to think this guy had the right idea. I wanna punch Cindy Lou Who in the face right about now.

Found this on Facebook:"We, as criminal defense lawyers, are forced to deal with some of the lowest people on earth, people who have no sense of right and wrong, people who will lie in court to get what they want, people who do not care who gets hurt in the process...

My powers of destruction strike again

Posted on November 21, 2008
You might have thought I was kidding when I said I have kryptonite for computers. But that shit is true, because yet another computer in my possession has met its painful death.This time my annihilation has rained down upon my hapless work computer. It has given me the blue screen of death...

Injustice anyone?

Pocket Full of Laptop Cryptonite

Posted on November 15, 2008
I have killed another laptop. Well, maybe not killed it, but I have seriously injured it. It was taking 35 to 45 minutes from start up to getting a webpage loaded. The screen flops around like a mackerel. It goes blue screen on my for no reason. It has approximately 2 minutes of battery power...

I am in the middle of reading a great book - a memoir called "The Glass Castle" by Jeannette Walls and I am loving it.Much to my dismay I came to a pivotal point in the book when I discovered that my copy is missing pages 213 to 245. WTF!!!!Now I have to wait for bn...
