Half-baked

Okay - so I snorted out loud at work while reading Dan's latest entry on his crazy kitties.  Which was a great way to start out a Monday morning since law firms DO NOT celebrate Columbus Day.  When I informed one of the lawyer men that many other businesses were closed today to observe the wonderful accident of Columbus reaching the shores of America - he said "Oh, well, I guess they have to be closed since the stock exchange is closed." 

I bit my tongue.  I really wanted to say "Well, we're a law office and the court houses are closed today." But since I kinda need my job - I decided not to pick a fight with someone whose name is written in pretty gold letters above my head - which is forboding enough as it is...

Next weekend, Harry and I are traveling to the wonderful city of Columbus Ohio where we will have much fun picking out a plain black bridesmaid dress for me to wear in Stacey's wedding.  I am very happy with her choice of matching coats and different dresses - what I am not looking forward to is the trying on of dress after dress in double-digits that makes my innards cringe - and crave comfort food - tis' a vicious cycle!  

Keeping this in mind, I woke up early on Sunday (after futile attempts to snuggle with hubby who preferred to keep his distance by snoring/hovering on the edge of our king-sized bed to prevent my snuggles from reaching his sleeping body) and walked on my treadmill while watching Alton Brown episodes.  I then swore off carbs until the wedding on November 11th.  Which lasted just long enough for me to make a DiGiorno's pizza for lunch. 

Will power - I think I lack it.  Or else it was replaced with something much more useful, like the ability to separate laundry with a flourish, or the knack of always spilling food on me when I eat - bullseye on the breasts! 

Wait a sec. I think I want a refund...

The stock market is open today.  Slap that stupid lawyer about the head and neck with all the rage and fury of an oppressed worker!  Then, offer doughnuts and demand a raise before his portfolio inevitably heads toward the crapper.

Maybe law firms staying open on Columbus day is one of those twist in logic...Columbus stole the Indians land and claimed it as his..so maybe its justice still trying...lol.......just trying to think of something...lol...Raven
