Overheard in my apartment

"I really want to get The Shins' CD"

"Oh, I almost picked that up when I was at Target the other day, since it was only like, $10, and plus, I really tend to like bands with a 'the' at the beginning of their names."


"You know, The Beatles, The Donnas, The Fratellis, The Clash..."

"Wow, babe. Rolling Stone is really missing out on this musical theory. They should totally hire you."

Not dead, just busy busy busy

busy busy busy, so narrative structure be damned...

Post bar exam spa trip was wonderful, but was during the hottest 2 days of the summer (heat index of 115 both days). The first day, we were so determined to make the most of our time there, we were literally the only ones out on the resort's tennis courts in the middle of the afternoon. Poor TheMan was out playing golf in the hot hot heat on the second day while I spa'd and lounged by the pool. Several adult beverages were consumed, and a merry ole' time was had by all.

While the spa was delightful while I was getting mah treatments, I have to say I think the whole thing is a bit of a rip off (except for pedicure, and maybe the eyebrow wax, dear God, why did no one tell me how much easier that is than pluck pluck plucking my (blonde) unibrow away?). 2 days after an $80 facial, my pores re-gunked themselves and I look exactly the same; my manicure chipped the very next day... BUT I'm not complaining, it WAS super relaxing in the moment, which was just what I needed before...

MY FIRST DAY OF WORK, which was also awesome. We have confirmed DreamJob status, and I'm really excited to start bigger projects and cases :) For obvious reasons (not the least of which is that I really don't want to be FIRED), I'm not going to talk a lot about my job here, just know that it is very fun and rewarding (and I might even be good at it!).

OK, so not actually a lot of news fit to print at the moment. Stay tuned to see if my life gets any more fun.

Just found out I'll be with the division I wanted at DreamJob! Hoorayyyy!!!

Also, I have my very own fish, already in the office and waiting for me to start (he's being tended to by Favorite Coworker until I get there)- a Red Beta fish named J├╝rgen Habermas (a reference to TheMan's grad school days, when he declared Habermas his "buddy").
