A Good Week

I started a new job this week, my friend who's been unemployed for a few months got a job, and another friend had a baby girl! So far this week has been full of good things.

Actual Text Message Conversation

(My parents have a dog named Piper)

Officious Intermeddler: Just got a new puppy yesterday, he's pretty cute.

Litigious Mind: Aww, what's his name?

Officious Intermeddler: Trip.

Litigious Mind: Cool, we named our dog after Palin offspring, too.

Snippets

Why is everyone so upset over this LeBron James thing? The guy who probably has everything except a championship wants a championship. So what? I am either missing something or people are being unrealistic about the vanity of pro basketball players.

Can you believe all this stuff about Mel Gibson? Nasty man. I knew there was a reason I hated Braveheart and never had even the slightest desire to see The Passion of the Christ despite the fact that many Christians I knew at the time were shitting themselves over how amazing it was. Such violence. I do loooove the Lethal Weapon series, though. It will be hard to watch them now knowing Riggs really was a racist like those South African dudes in the second movie. Good thing Murtaugh and Leo Gehts were my favorites.

I got a job!

My niece had a nearly inconsolable meltdown tonight. I love the cutie pie, but thank the Lord she's only my niece, not my baby.

Lindsay Lohan tweeted about how her 90 day sentence was inhumane. Please. The funniest part for me was how she invoked the injustice of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines. Which only apply in federal cases. And, if I recall, don't have much (anything?) to do with probation violations. Stay in school, kids, or you could end up like Lindsay. F'ing retarded but convinced you're brilliant.

My sister and I have been compulsively watching the Australian TV show "McCloud's Daughters" all week. It's addicting. I even choked back tears at one point. Will Tess and Nick EVER get together?!

I Should Just Stop Watching

Another ridiculous commercial that airs during TLC's "A Baby Story":

"When you find out you're pregnant, it's like there are a million stretch mark products to choose from."

I have never been pregnant, but I imagine that is not what goes through a woman's mind when she finds out she's pregnant. If it is, baby she should rethink parenthood. (Of course, by then it's kind of too late.)

Not Quitting My Day Job (Oh Wait, I Don't Have One)

Sooooo... remember this? When I so confidently predicted that Bachelor Jake Pavelka was still single because he liked strong independent women that didn't have time for his "intensity"? Well, I think I was onto something regarding Jake, but clearly I was too kind and gave him the benefit of the doubt when I probably shouldn't have.

In my defense, I didn't watch Jillian's season of The Bachelorette, and I didn't watch Jake's season of The Bachelor save for the first episode. So unlike many women, he didn't set off my creepiness radar because we all know that the first episode is just a lot of shirtless footage and ramblings about "true love," "soulmates," and future spouses. But something just didn't feel right about him from the start.

Now it seems clear from the post-split interview he did with Vienna that he's a total douche nutjob. Ladies, always trust your instincts, and don't make kind excuses (like I did for Jake).

Icky and Sad

I grew up pretty sheltered, and I was never the type of person to rebel. As a result, I haven't seen too many disturbing things in my life. (I didn't even watch horror movies until I was in law school.) Well, my friends, today I think I witnessed one of my top five most disturbing events.

I was driving down the highway, and one of the cars a ways in front of me must have hit a cat. Because I came across a cat that was not dead but was having violent and prolonged spasms all the way across the highway. It's whole body was flipping and contorting.

Now, I do not like cats. I don't really understand why anyone has them as pets because they're just boring and lame. But nevertheless, this was pretty awful. Poor kitty. It almost makes me think that I should have hit it and put it out of its misery.

I'm Still Alive

Sorry for the sparce posting lately. There's not much going on in my world right now. My sister and niece are staying with our parents now, too, so I'm getting a lot of baby-holding in. Yay for babies! She likes her auntie Litigious.

Oh yeah, and I turned down a job offer yesterday in order to continue to pursue another job that would be a better opportunity in the long run. But getting the job is not a sure thing. Blurg. Life stinks sometimes.
