Cramazing news

Stephen and I are settling in nicely to the new house. I don't let Swarley sleep in our room anymore because I'm a jerk, but oh how well do I sleep. Somehow, somewhere, on some sort of list sold to companies, our name is listed as "Schreibert". We keep getting mail, dentist solicitations, and "exciting coupons" for the Schreiberts. Those guys are missing out on savings.

In other news, OMG. Granted, I was a bit more of a Babysitter's Club fan, but either way, this is going to be amazing. Diablo Cody, you'd best not disappoint if you don't want the entire fury of my rage raining down upon you.

Awesome to the Oose

Holy crap! The Irish pulled it out like pros! The team looked good, the crowd was fired up, and the band sounded decent. This has very good implications for the rest of the season, hopefully we can keep the momentum up.

Sweet ass sweet

So this Labor Day weekend, we decided to skip going to the game and finish moving to our new house. We are getting a moving truck tomorrow and moving it all, and we went out and bought a kitchen table, coffee table and desk today. Everything is happening fast, and it's pretty exciting. Hopefully all will be ready to go by the Michigan game so we can have an inaugural game watch at our house.

Finally, I am currently watching Law and Order and holy crap! A fellow Notre Dame FTT grad Tom Degnan was one of the suspects! I know someone who is now on TV (and according to IMDB is also on a soap). Between that and seeing a Public Defender I work with frequently in a Donato's commercial, I feel like I'm living the Hills lifestyle.

Boosh and/or Ka-kow

First of all, boosh:

We're taking over, bitches.

Second, ka-kow. I got a job! I'm going to be working as a prosecutor for the misdemeanor side of crimes. I start July 13, and four years of college, 3 of law school, two months of studying for the bar and 36 hours of testing finally have paid off.

A few other things. Scolson got married! We took pictures, but... we are too lazy to upload them yet. Mal does not have the new iPhone as he is not eligible for the upgrade. We went to Houston and New Orleans... and that's pretty much all that's been going on.

So, basically from Christmas until February 26, I literally did nothing social. I didn't go out to eat with people, I didn't go to the movies. I did manage to keep an hour or two a night for TV (I care about the really important things in life), then on February 26, I felt like:

I think I've finally recovered, after many nights of sleeping in. Going to work and being yelled at by people with criminal records for prostitution and drug possession is a little refreshing.

Updates to the max

So, you may have noticed my absence, or maybe you just thought I was being lazy, like normal. Actually, I was studying for, and taking, the bar exam, whose results I'll have in about 6 more weeks. Nothing like waiting! Anyway, I figured I'd start back from where we left off and try to hit all the major events.

1) Christmas. Stephen and I did go to Mexico, and he did manage to avoid diarrhea. Good work, Stephen. We also took lots o' pictures. Here are a few.

Here's Swarley, wishing YOU a Merry Christmas. Yeah, it's a little late, but how adorable is that little bastard?

Stephen enjoying his first churro, bought off the streets of Monterrey. Yes, he ate street food. AND, may I repeat, did not get diarrhea.

Finally, this insane lady was greeting people at the planetarium. What is she supposed to be? All I know is that she was very interested in getting next to everyone. VERY interested.

Old and Married

By the time you hit approximately my age, I think I've figured out that most people are either in the Old and Married category or the Young and Single category. You don't necessarily have to be married to be in that category, but it helps. For example, as an Old and Married, I'm spending my Friday night eating steak at home and watching movies. If I were Young and Single, I suspect it may go more like eating out and actually going somewhere. I think it's a continuum, where there are degrees of each, but essentially you're on one end or the other.

But I am certainly not complaining about being Old and Married. I get more sleep, I have extra money to spend on things I like instead of just booze, and part of my routine is comfortably predictable.

Part of being an Old and Married I suppose is getting full-time employment. I'm still in the technically part time category because I have yet to pass the bar, so I don't get benefits but do get to work almost as much as someone who does! On the plus side, I have a great schedule and don't have to worry about asking for vacation.

So now I'm looming around the corner from career-dom. I took the MPRE and soon it's time to start studying for the bar exam. I'll miss a few things about my job. The 50 cent soda machine named Clyde. The super duper hardly ever work past 4:30 schedule. The free candy we get every so often from the boss man. But boy, it'll be nice to have, you know, retirement. Old and Married, I will soon be one step closer to your category!

Wow, Lizett, you hardly blog, ever. Not just lately, but seriously, ever. Well, my friends, let me tell you the reason why. No, it's not my job keeping me busy, or some noble volunteer work. Stephen and I currently spend $17 a month to get two DVDs at a time from Blockbuster and boy do we make use of our subscription.

Over the summer, and up to now, Stephen and I have watched entire seasons/series of Pushing Daisies, The Wire, Dexter, Heroes, Rome, Burn Notice, and Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. With all this new TV on top of the other TV we're watching, I suspect we spend 26 hours a day in front of the TV. Even as I type this, we're watching tonight's episode of House, the wonder doctor. Let's hope we don't have a baby soon so we don't have to give up on all this TV.
