awesome...what a fantastic day it has turned out to be!
One more day of barbri review classes left. That's super exciting. I don't know where the summer went but only a handful of days left until the big test.
Oh well, it's just another test. I don't plan on going through all this again in February so there is no way that I'm not going to pass (contrary to what Samara like to tell me every other day!!!)
Now for the reason why today was so lovely...the plan has been put into motion. The Wagenaar Sisters are in agreement that it's just about time for the family band to make it's national television debut. The minor problem is that we don't have a complete albums worth of material yet...we'll get there, we've just all had a lot going on lately. So, look for us on the small screen near you next year. That's right, "The Wagenaar Sisters Doing it Doggie Style" will be trying hard to make it on vh1's 2008 World Series of Pop Culture. It's on, auditions schmauditions, we're cute and we've got a killer team name.
You can say you heard it hear first. I'M SO EXCITED!!!!

bar review is lame. the bar exam is lame. barbri is lame. KHC is lamest of all for not teaching me contracts when she was supposed to.
america's next top model is super fantastic.

done with school forever. my last exam last night was pretty much a perfect reflection on my time at THE john marshall law school. everything was going as swimmingly as can be expected for a class where i didn't pay attention a single day and crammed at the end, and then i get to question five. it was a 2 3/4 page fact pattern, i read the whole thing only to arrive at the conclusion that there was no question for us to answer. swell. proctor says write your own question and answer it. lovely, so i wrote a legit labor law question but please believe it had sub-part b) have you earned an A in this course? got that right, a big fat YES SIR!!!
then i shared the happy news of my school completion. got the unhappy news that chances of troy making it to graduation are slim to none. met up with andrea. went to kincades for dollar beers and karaoke. rubbed elbows with some pseudo-celebs. went for tacos at two with said "famous" people. went back and hung out at the all-star pimp palace on the 45th floor of some super tight apartment building on state and superior. went home around 4. napped. got up at 6. left for work at 7. got coffee and a breakfast taco from alonti. at my desk by 8. took a break at 1 to recap the nights shenanigans with andrea.
now i'm wrapping up one of my last days at the k2. making my grocery list because, even though i was told not to, i can't not cook for guests. so white pizza, caprese salad, chicken quesadilla's and guacamole are on the menu. i think katie's bringing some grub too. da da da damn...we are gonna get FAT watching greys tonight!!!

How do YOU pronounce the word prelude?
Do you say pray-loo-dah
Do you say prell-you-duh
Do you say some other unique pronunciation I have failed to account for?

Current Music: Irreplacable (by FAR my favorite song right now)
saturday had a mini-marquette reunion lunch. it was so much fun, me dre and the boys. so we were eating and dre and i get to talking and she asked me if i had heard about this case where panera was suing the mall they were located in because there was a clause in their contract that they would be the only sandwich shop tenant of the mall and then the mall let a qdoba open there. so panera was saying that a burrito is a sandwich and letting them open violated the exclusivity clause. at this point everyone is staring, like oh shit is this what two of the biggest party girls we used to know have become??? well, yes it is. what is boiled down to is that a judge ruled that on account of one tortilla vs. two slices of bread, a burrito is not a sandwich and there was no breach of contract. imagine my surprise when i sign on to yahoo this morning only to see as features headline #2 - Judge says burrito is not a sandwich. WOW, we've got our finger on the pulse of the nation!!!

I have come to the realization that as much as people in chicago may complain, they absolutely LOVE IT when it starts getting cold. All of the sudden they have built in idle conversation. If I have that standard, "Cold enough for you?" "I know can you believe it's already snowing?" chat again, I will probably die laughing!

so i have yet to invest in a full length mirror for my apartment. it's not so much because i don't need one, i mean i really do...i'm tired of standing on a chair to try to figure out if my outfit looks presentable before i leave. it's more a matter of i hate being "that girl" riding on buses with awkward over-sized objects. thank goodness i've found a reasonable alternative to actually owning a mirror. i learned today that if i just leave out the back of the building there are generally at least two maintenance men hanging out in the little garage area there...when the stop what they are doing and say things like "holy shit did you see her" when they think i'm out of earshot, it think it's safe to say i managed to pull an alright looking outfit together! GO ME!!!

oh the trusting folks at Keno Kozie. I certainly hope nothing of an emergency nature happens in the next hour or so. I'm pretty much the only person here. All the partners are out, all the engineers are out, the accounting office is out, the help desk is mostly over at the new client getting their support set up, all the coordinators are out. so really, it's me, carol in her training with the attorney's from levenfeld, and the telephones.
ho hum...what to do...OH I KNOW...I'LL ABUSE MY POSITION AND PRINT OUT ALL MY PAD OUTLINES ON THE OFFICE EQUIPTMENT!!!!!
