I got a Blackberry. So amazing. I had internet on my Q while I studied for the bar, but I shut it off once I was home (unemployed) all the time. I forgot how addicting it is.

The Hearing is almost over. Hopefully it ends well.

I'm in the midst of an evidentiary hearing (unsupervised) right now.

I cannot really say things are going great.

Theodore's Pool Day.

In the yard telling me how I need to fill the pool.

Filling the Pool.

Trying to get his Toys.

Testing the waters.

Finally in the Pool.

Thinking his Goldfish is coming after him because of the currents from the hose.

Doggie Treats

In honor of Take Your Dog to Work Day, which Theodore will be attending, I thought I'd share my dog treat recipes. This way you know exactly what is in the treats and they are low in preservatives and fillers.

Peanut Butter Treats:
3 Cups of Whole Wheat Flour
1 1/4 Tablespoon Baking Powder
1 1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1 Cup (Soy) Milk

Combine dry ingredients. Combine peanut butter and milk until smooth. Gradually stir peanut butter mixture into flour mixture. Knead dough by hand and then roll out on a floured surface (I use whole wheat flour) to desired thickness and cut out treats. (I have an adorable bone-shaped cookie cutter about 1'' long). Bake on a cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees and allow to cool before serving.

Cheesy Treats
4 Cups Whole Wheat Flour
3/4 Cups Vegetable Oil
3 teaspoons Garlic Powder
2 Eggs
1 1/4 Cups Shredded Cheese
1 1/4 Cups (Soy) Milk

Combine flour and garlic powder, gradually add vegetable oil, eggs, cheese and milk. Knead dough by hand and then roll out on a floured surface (I use whole wheat flour) to desired thickness and cut out treats. Bake on a cookie sheet for 15-20 minutes at 400 degrees and allow to cool before serving.

Petri Dish

Being the tremendous germophobe that I am, I find these really creepy and I cannot see a practical use for them outside of prop for a weirdo biology teacher or uber nerdy child. I had a math teacher in high school who celebrated Pi Day with her husband (a mathematician), I could easily see her science teacher doppelganger exchanging these for monumental occasions likes the start of cold and flu season.

However, I am tempted to get Theodore the Giardia one so that he can toss it around and kick its ass.

"I remember when we were driving, driving in your car."

Weird things that have happened in the last 2 weeks involving my car:

  1. I bought a new one. I got rid of my 4-Wheel Drive SUV and got something more environmentally friendly. And it's Inferno Red which is fun. And it has a built in cooler that is chilled by the air conditioning. I have no idea when I'll ever use this, but don't act like you're not impressed.
  2. Today on my way home I changed lanes (which I had plenty of room to do), but apparently it pissed the lady behind me off, in fairness I am not altogether sure if I signaled, but whatever. She just laid on the horn, I seriously thought it was broken like in Little Miss Sunshine. After about a minute I lost my patience and flipped her off through my handy-dandy moon-roof. She sped up next to me, flipped me off, and then got back behind me. Then the car in front of me slammed on the breaks, so I had to, which made her think I was brake checking her. So then the honking started again. Then a car actually cut me off, so I had to hit the brakes again making her think I again brake checked her. So the honking resumed. Then she sped up, got right next to me, flipped me off almost side swiped me, and then cut me off. At that point I decided it was time to just get away from her anyway possible, so I went to the mall and spent money.
  3. The other day I was driving to work and I looked in my rearview-mirror as all responsible drivers do. I saw this chick (seated in the passenger seat) all over the guy driving. Kissing his neck, his ears, rubbing his chest, you get the picture. I'm a bit put off that people have energy for that so early in the morning. And a bit jealous. Then all of a sudden she disappears. I start laughing hysterically. Then I realize I don't want the guy getting road head during rushhour driving behind my new car so I move over a lane, only for her to pop back up less than a mile down the road. Seriously, who does that at 8:10 in the morning?
Say what you will about my absence, but at least when I return I bring stories about road rage and road head with me.

Testing...Testing...1, 2, 3.

Is anyone still there?

I have been feeling the itch to blog lately. Will you take me back? I promise not to desert you for a month and a half ever again if you forgive me baby.
