This post is about a dream I had this afternoon...eventually. First I needed to comment on some other things.

I got a ad for a law book today, and while I know what it means in legal terminology, the title made me laugh anyways - "NC Manuel of Complaints". It just seems like a big list of things that piss people off.

I've been drinking Diet Mountain Lion and it's not bad as long as you don't expect it to taste like Mountain Dew. When I tried to look up the link I found that Food Lion does wine tastings - whaaaa? This also seemed odd to me. I mean, it's meat. You have to kill them. Maybe it's just me, but killing things isn't humane, even if you do it nicely. I'm all for a good steak so I don't really care, but come on!

Ok, now to the dream. I dreamt that it was Christmas time and I was in my house in Stonington, but all the furniture from the Atlanta house was there. My friend Eddie (from my 1L year) pulled up on my front lawn which had snow on it, with a college roommate. But it wasn't really Eddie - he was tall, but he had stubble and didn't really look like him and we hugged when he came inside. And we all went into the family room and Holly was watching a show about back tattoos. Then Layla woke me up. I looked at this site and this one and came up with this:

1 - To dream of Christmas, symbolizes family togetherness, reunions, and celebration. It is also representative of new beginnings and fresh starts. Consider also your own associations with this holiday.

2 - To see your childhood home in particular, suggests your own desires for building a family. It also reflects aspects of yourself that were prominent or developed during the time you lived in that home. You may experience some feelings or unfinished expression of emotions that are now being triggered by a waking situation. If you dream of visiting your old family home you will hear some very good news.

3 - To see furniture in your dream, represents how you feel about yourself and your family. It refers to your relationships with others and how they fit into your life.

4 - To dream of snow in all its forms, on trees, storms, etc., is a dream of very good omen which shows you will have success in business or investments.

5 - If you dream of hugging in a general way, you will lose your lover or your business.

6 - To dream that you are in the living room, represents the image that you portray to others and the way which you go about your life. It is representative of your basic beliefs about yourself and who you are.

7 - To see your sister in your dream, symbolizes some aspect of your relationship with her, whether it one of sibling rivalry, caring, protectiveness, etc. Your sister may draw attention to your family role and sense of belonging. It may also serve to remind you that someone in your waking life has characteristics similar to your sister. Alternatively, your sister may be a metaphor and actually refer to a nun. In this case, she may represent spiritual issues.

8 - To dream that you are watching television, represents your brain, mind and its flowing thoughts. It shows how you are receiving, integrating, and expressing your ideas/thoughts. The programs you dream of watching is an objective view of the things that are in your mind.

9 - To see a naked back in your dream, symbolizes secrets that you may have kept from others or aspects of yourself that you have kept hidden and shielded away. Consider the pun, "watch your back!"; this dream may be telling you to do just that. Traditionally, seeing a back in your dream, forewarns that you should not lend money to anyone. In particular, lending money to friends will cause a rift in your relationship.

10 - If you see someone else with tattoos then you will take a long, hard journey from home.

So I will be together with people, most likely my family, for a fresh start. I want to build a family and am experiencing some feelings by a new situation and will hear good news. I somehow think I am a couch or old furniture? I will have success is business. And then lose it. I believe in myself. Either I am thinking about my sister in a family role, I know someone like my sister or I think Holly is a nun who represents spiritual things. The TV show with back tattoos is an “objective view” of what is in my mind. Which means I have a secret and shouldn't’t lend money and will then take a long journey from home.

What the hell?

My interpretation:
So, is this about graduation? All my family will be here, it will be a fresh start. Hopefully I’ll book a class. I will pass the bar but won’t find a job so then I will pray. I will then get a job far away.

I really hope that’s not what it means. Because I don’t want to move away. I’ll just stick with I’m crazy.

One more thing to prove I am a dork

I got all the answers to this quiz correct - on the first try (go to the bottom of the page for the quiz) . Yea. And then I checked the library to see if Eldest was available and it's checked out now so I put it on reserve. Notice how it's cataloged in the Young Adult section.

Embarrassment & Exhaustion

Embarrassment: There is a station here that plays mainly 80s music. Last night, as I was pulling into my driveway this song (which I have to say this video is freaking hilarious and I almost peed myself with the cheesy elevator background music - HEE!!!) came on. I hadn't heard it in like 10 years so I sat in my car and jammed for the 3 minutes it was on. As I got out of the car I noticed that the people who live across the street from me had been watching me the whole time. Oops.

Exhaustion: I just got done with my Sales final (I still have 2 finals left as I turned in my paper final this morning). My hand is frozen in a bizarre form from holding a damn pen. It took me about 3 hours and 15 minutes to do the exam (we were given 4). I normally don't take that long. It was 30 short answers, which was false because we had 20 lines to answer each question - short my ass. Anyways, it was hard and I am tied and whoever said 3L year was easy was a liar!

2 things- 1 awesome, 1 gross

Notice the large amounts of posts? It's because I am doing my damnedest to avoid studying Sales. Anywho:

Awesome - This video. They learned the song backwards - including all the instruments - dedication my friends. Plus the song ain't half bad. There should be a link to the making of, and it's interesting too, but not as good as the video.

Gross - Have you ever had a booger stuck inside your nose and you try to get it out by like sucking in (like you're getting ready to hawk a loogie) and it flies back and hits you in the back of the throat? Because that just happened to me (not for the first time). And it's gross.


Great Day, So Far

Today, so far, has been a great day. I woke up this morning at 11, got ready and ate this for brunch while watching Family Feud. The I got a call from the boys to meet them for bowling. I got gas (which was a low point, but I think the price is going to go up again and I got it at the same price it was yesterday, which is the best I can say about that), and listened to this CD which has a bunch of good sing alongs including these 2 songs which are some favorites. Although I was jonesing for this CD so that I could sing to this or this.

I met the boys at the alley and they have decided that bowling is their new hobby. The each bought shoes and have "bowling names". Jeff is Mike and Matt is Tony. Yea. I don't know either. We bowled 3 games and I got a 127 on my second one. Matt somehow pulled his "left ass" which made me crack up. Apparently the ass injury came about 2 years ago during a game of racket ball and now anytime he plays a sport where he has to abruptly stop, he "tweaks his ass". We also saw a high school bowling class some in with their female gym teacher who perpetuated every female gym teacher stereotype.

On the way home I got a flat bread salad from Quiznos and it's delicious. There is not a Quiznos near me, so I'm glad I remembered to stop. It has raspberry chipotle dressing which kicks ass. And flat bread which duh - good. I also got a diet SoBe and the cap told me I was beautiful so that's nice.

Then I saw this trailer and about died from awesomeness. I can't wait! Except for the fact that it opens 2 weeks before my bar exam. Hmm. Do I wait?

Then I finished my final paper for one of my classes and watched last night's Dancing with the Stars. So far, so good. Let's hope this post doesn't jinx it.

I'm OK

For those who were concerned, I am fine. I was actually fine when I wrote the post. You know how sometimes you just need to let everything out - well that's what that post was about - purging. And I did actually cry at October Road - the "free hugs" part - and it was only a little tear, not like sobbing or anything. And yes, my graduation is on a Monday. See, I told you the school was stupid. I wasn't making it up or being crazy, I was serious.


Not a believer

So the other day I went shopping and I bought a jar of mayonnaise. I don't put mayo on everything, but I find it necessary for tuna and egg salad sandwiches. And a post-Thanksgiving actual turkey sandwich just isn't good without a little Hellman's bringing out the best. That being said, on the lid of the mayo, albeit low-fat mayo, it said, "excellent source of Omega-3 and zero trans-fat". Like it was a healthy food choice. I don't buy it, and that's coming from someone who eats ice cream for the calcium. Mayonnaise, while occasionally a necessary, is not health food.

Funny/Not So Funny

Is it wrong that I thought it was funny when Heather Mills fell over Monday on Dancing with the Stars? Because it was.


See, I didn't used to be bitter or angry.

See, I didn't used to be bitter. I used to be nice. I used to give people the benefit of the doubt. I used to like people. I don't right now. I am so angry. I haven't written a lot about law school because I didn't want it to come back and bite me in the ass, but at this point I don't care (well I do some).

I am about to graduate.

I found out - 2 weeks before finals - that I need to get a semester average of about 92 in order to graduate with honors. I wish I had been told that my first year, or at least last fucking semester - I would have studied more if I knew it could have made a difference. We weren't even told that we had the possibility of getting honors. FUCKERS! See, I didn't used to be bitter.

We've been told that we could have unlimited people attending the hooding ceremony and the following luncheon. Many students are bring around 10 people (some as few as 4 and some as many as 20), I've got 9 on my list now (2 are babies though). We were told, today, that the luncheon has limited seating. That's not really an issue for me because I'm not going to the lunch. As I explained to my mother, why would I want to be stuck in a room with 1000 people, most of whom I don't know and the rest of whom I don't like. I liked people during my first year in law school. Now, there is a handful of people I like - a handful that I will remain close with for a long time. And there's another handful who I like enough to talk to if I ever see them again. There's another group who I am indifferent too. And there is the last group of people I can NOT FUCKING STAND. See, I didn't used to be angry. I used to like almost everyone. Why do people have to be assholes?

I figured out (along with some friends) that the place we're getting hooded has about 500 seats. Which means there is the possibility that some student's immediate family members will have to go into overflow seating and watch on a closed-circuit TV, while some one's great-aunt twice removed will be up front and center. Now I am not upset that people will have 20 guests, I'm upset that nobody thought to tell us about the space limitation until now. And I am further upset that no preemptive actions are being taken. When told about the possibility of 1000 people, the administration said they'd handle it when it happened because it has never been a problem before. Good job. All I'm saying is that if my mom, siblings and grandma don't get a seat, I'm going to be pissed. And I will probably start swearing. A lot. At the Baptist school. In front of everyone. I will make a scene if I have to. But the reason I'm mad is because I shouldn't have to be stressed about that at all - it should have been dealt with months ago. I get angry with stupid people who can't plan and then give out incorrect information. I have been able to run 2 competitions this year - although some people couldn't figure out simple time tables, both ran smoothly and barely anyone was angry. This ceremony - one of the most important things in my life, my induction into the legal profession - is less complicated to run and shouldn't be a stressful thing. It has been tainted. And I don't want to not graduate or to get a hold on my bar results because I had to kick some ass on my graduation. FUCKERS! See, I didn't used to be bitter. Thanks 2L & 3L years of law school!

Maybe I'll delete this post in a day or two, after I cool off. But right now, I just want to scream, "FUCK YOU {LAW SCHOOL}"!

Email from Jeff

My brother is not very big on email. He does not like forwards and gets mad if you send ones that aren't funny to him. He does respond, sometimes, if you ask a direct question, but normally only if he is interested. Anyways, this is what I got in my inbox from him the other day:

"Not last night but the night before;
Three little monkeys came knocking at my door;
One had a fiddle, one had a drum;
And the other one had a pancake stuck to his bum.

3rd Annual Top-Shelf Easter Extravaganze

Yea. The majority of the top shelf couldn't make it down for Easter this year. So my siblings and my cousin Ann met at Jeff's house for the weekend. Roll only stayed until Saturday afternoon because she had to go to a TI concert - that's a whole nother subject.

Anyways, on Friday we watched Deal or No Deal for awhile on MSNBC. Then we went bowling with Matt, and by bowling I mean drunk bowling. And we placed bets on our drunk bowling abilities. And Adam, a worker at the bowling alley, joined in the betting and gave us free popcorn. Too bad he couldn't get us a free pitcher. I did not do as well this time as I did last time. I think I cared too much. I have a problem performing under pressure...with sports. Then we went to CiCi's (again) and ate too much (again). I forget what we did once we got home, but whatever it was didn't last too long and we went to bed.

On Saturday morning we watched old school American Gladiators in bed, then went to IHOP. After that we played Scene It, Scrabble & Scattegories for a really long time. Ann, Jeff & I ordered Chinese food and played more Scrabble & watched baseball. Later we played poker with Matt & Sam and at one point Jeff, Ann and I were sitting in the corner with a bowl over our heads. It was a long night.

Sunday morning Ann & I watched Harry Potter IV & Monster-in-Law. We went to QDoba (with the queso) with the boys and then watched Take the Lead & Parenthood & played more Scrabble. Later we played more Scrabble with Matt & then more Scattegories with Jeff too.

It was a food-filled, game-filled weekend and just what I needed.

Finals start in a week. My last finals of school. I am nervous. And actually studying so I probably won't post for awhile. Wish me luck!

I agree

With this recap from TWOP about Grey's Anatomy. (In case it doesn't link to the correct spot - page 6 of season 3 episode 19). George and Izzy should not have done it PERIOD. Now that they have, which again I say should NEVER have happened, they need to just get over it and stop building a story line around it. Those two have never had feelings towards each other and trying to make us believe that Izzy now has a thing for George is just stupid and insulting. Knock it off Grey's.
