Is it a sex blog? A mommy blog? A bitch & moan blog? Um, . . . yeah. This is my place to be totally honest. In my real life, I feel like I'm always lying to somebody about something. Here, I am totally honest. Brutally so. However, no matter what bad things I say about my kids, I adore them and would never ever really, say, sell them on Ebay. The husband, often referred to as Spousehole, is another story. Oh yeah - if you are under 18 (or if you are my husband), please leave now.

The Preamble

When I was in my 2nd yr of law school, on the first day of Con Law our prof asked if we were familiar with the preamble. The class, of course, broke out in song - this song, from Schoolhouse Rock. It was one of my favorite law school moments.

My favorite post-law school moment was at our swearing-in ceremony in my town. The appellate judge doing part of the oath said "Repeat after me: I, state your name" and about half of us said "I, state your name" and burst out in laughter. The stick-up-their-butts people didn't find it amusing, but the rest of us did. I smiled for the rest of ceremony at that one.

That reminds me of sitting in Dendrology class in college and the instructor was talking about variations in a certain tree species, and he said, "I ran into this tree in Oregon once" and left enough space for my buddy to yell out, "did it hurt?" Three quarters of the class, including the instructor, laughed [and we took down the names of those who didn't C;)].
