Subject:R&J, again.
Mood: contemplative


This part was repeating in my head a few weeks ago.  These are Friar Laurence's wise words to the happy couple in Act 2, Scene 6:  

 09   These violent delights have violent ends
 10   And in their triumph die, like fire and powder,
 11   Which as they kiss consume. The sweetest honey
 12   Is loathsome in his own deliciousness
 13   And in the taste confounds the appetite.
 14   Therefore love moderately; long love doth so;
 15   Too swift arrives as tardy as too slow

Will, your truth bombs are still exploding.

Ah, holiday season is here again! 
You know how to tell? Christmas Cokes are on the shelves and Starbucks broke out the red cups. 

I'm content. :)

Subject:Welcome to the gun show, Mommy.

In criminal law today, someone said that a fully automatic weapon is more dangerous than a regular household firearm.
While this may be true, it's the notion of firearms as household items that peaks my interest.
Are weapons so commonplace in American households that we can now distinguish certain guns as household firearms?
Maybe we'll be seeing advertising directed at moms and dads at our local gun shows.

Subject:Knoxville or Bust
Mood: silly

I'll be making the trip to Knoxville after work today to visit UT Law. I'm pretty excited about the whole thing, even the driving (for the most part). I've got my supply of Diet Dew & road snax, emo and power ballads. Picture this: the lone Vee Dub making it's way through the rolling Tennessee Hills, it's solo female driver waving a balled fist and belting Chicago. Like a knight in shining armor from a long time ago...
Tomorrow morning is the open house which consists of the usual panels and tours and finally an ice cream social with the Dean. Neat. At Georgia it was a beer social with the Dean. Different strokes.
Tomorrow afternoon I'll be wandering about the campus and town trying to fit in and not get lost. 
Then the manpiece is joining me in the evening for the remainder of the trip. Rock!
If anyone has good ideas about what to get into in Knoxville, clue me in. So far plans include eating and looking at stuff.

Subject:Easy like Tuesday afternoon.

LJ nudging and FB poking, love it. 
Erryca, you asked for it, and here it is:

Big Updates:
-I moved in with my friend from high school Janaé and her fiancé Michael to a house in Jackson. We're in this neat little neighborhood close to downtown. There's a theater gild a block away, and all sorts of fun shops and restaurants. There's an eclectic mix of people, as we live next to Belhaven and Millsaps Colleges. It's nice to live with people my age again, I really enjoy the company. I'm so grateful not to have the hour-long commute every morning, and I can get home and go for a run before it gets dark now. Egg-cellent. The roommates have satellite tv and TiVo; I see Iron Chef and Project Runway in my future.
-The new job is at an Architectural firm about 3 miles from the new house. It's the same old work, but the people here are great. Much better than sitting alone for 8 hours a day with no actual work to do. And sometimes they feed me. I've won the heart of our oldest employee with my matchless wit and lightening-quick typing skillz. They told me today they want me to stay until I leave for law school (see bullet 4). Rock! for job stability.
-My little Jetta is just fantastic. After scraping off muchos bumper stickers and window decals (UNO, Sorority, '04 Pres. campaign & "New Orleans: Proud to call it home.") on Saturday I took it for a spin. And then another, and then another. I think we're going to get along just fine. I promise I won't crap you up like the previous. And to Sophie the Maxima, sorry I ran you into a mailbox, the back of an Explorer and a minivan, and sorry I backed you into the bumper of a truck while trying to pull off a daredevil parking attempt freshman year. And sorry I spilled pink hair dye in your console this summer and countless sticky drinks in your cup holders. Those cupholders would make anyone vomit.
-Updated list of law schools from whom I have positive replies: Ole Miss, Richmond, Colorado & Wake Forest. No negatives thus far, just impatiently waiting for them to holla back. It's a toss-up. 
-I visited awesome Colorado with the man-object (great) a few weekends ago. I got to ski for a day, meet some fun people, and "visit the law school" in Boulder. New experiences: prairie dogs (adorable, but carry the Plague), New Belgium beer (possible conversion to beer drinking? the jury is still out.), and women's hockey (actually pretty entertaining). This weekend I'm traveling to Memphis for more mischief, and I'm pretty pumped. 

In other mundane news:
-My new deodorant is absolutely delightful.
-Felicity Vol. 3 isn't what I thought it would be. I'll send it your way next, SJ.
-Life is too short for Healthy Choice dinners.
-One of the guys who works here looks like the Monopoly man. I'd like to purchase him a monocle. Also, he wears Cosby sweaters. COSBY!
-Cats are disgusting and useless, but amusing nonetheless.

Overall, things are pretty grand. There's much to be said for answered prayers.

Mood: irritated

E and I were talking on the way over from Vtown this morning, and we both want to know, "What the hell is everyones problem with Starbucks?"

Because it's a large corporation, do people think they have to hate on it? Maybe people think that's what they're supposed to do? Well, dammit, there are a lot of good things to say in it's defense:

1. They are among the Fortune 500 Best 100 Companies to Work For (yes, they ended it in a preposition). They send you to fun Barista School, for heaven's sake!

2. They purchase Fair Trade Certified coffee at premium prices to help coffee farmers and their families. Check out the Fair Trade Blend: http://www.starbucks.com/ourcoffees/product.asp?category%5Fname=Mild&product%5Fid=FTR.

3. Philanthropists? I think so: http://www.starbucks.com/aboutus/disaster_relief.asp

4. Simply put, it's delicious.

I'm all for supporting the Mom and Pops, but if you want my business, you'd better bring it with the tasty drinks. AE says she's never had a better blended drink than at our beloved Stardollar, and I agree with her whole-heartedly. Because for my money, it doesn't get any better than a tall mocha with fatty fat milk and whip. Not to mention the delicious, expensive cakes and baked goods (avoid pumpkin loaf which sometimes tastes faintly of crawfish...this may only be the College Dr. branch in Louisiana).

We used to be the kids who blew all their money at the locally owned coffee shop downtown, until they started with the HERSHEY'S. Puh-lease. Grocery store chocolate syrup (pronounced sear-up)  is for milk and ice cream, not the $4 espresso beverage. We need to chat.

So dammit, if I want to give my money to a big-name corporation, I will. Don't judge me. It's not like I shop at Wal-mart, where they don't even believe in Christmas.

Go hate on CC's...they completely suck at life.

Five Confessions:

1. Martha Stewart Living is my favorite magazine. I know most people think she's heinous--she probably is, but the moment before I flip to the back cover to discover the Cookie of the Month I get a little giddy.

2. I know all the words to Billy Madison, the stupidest movie ever filmed, and I've watched Ever After and The Little Mermaid a shameful amount of times.

3. I may or may not have eaten an entire bag of Riesen's in one sitting.

4. If you've ever let me stay over, I totally yanked your toothpaste.

5. When I make To Do lists, I write things I've already completed down just to have something to cross off.

Subject:LSU, you're still okay with me.
Mood: okay

Still proud to be a Tiger:

It was a season of close calls, but no one outright stomped us until yesterday, and that makes me a little sad.
But the Peach is still a good bowl, and I'll pull for you all the way. You too, Georgia. Show them what the SEC is all about.
As for the National Championship game, UT and USC deserve each other. Have at it. And Hook 'em Horns.

EDIT: I lied. I'm more than a little sad. After reading the list of bowls (thanks to B.dup), it hurts to see Georgia take our spot. Congrats to the 6 SEC teams that got bowl invitations though.
