Friday Spies ©

I don't know why, but I always forget to say I got this from BTQ. Why do I forget? Is it the aspartame? We may never know. Here's Friday Spies anyway. I hope I'm not forgetting anything else, but I probably am.

1. If you could change any element of your physical appearance, would you? If so, what would you change? If you could change any aspect ofyour personality would you? Of course, who wouldn't?

Physically I would want to be less chubby, obviously! I mean, in America what could be worse than being fat, even if only marginally so? I would want to be whatever size would make people stop going "You're just big-boned!" I'm not big-boned. I'm pudgy. But, thanks for playing. I want to be cute and small and girly and all those things that boys like, instead of tall and solid and always probably making people think of someone who would look really at home working a farm or something.

Personality wise, I think I would like to be more reserved. I am a chatterer, and pretty much always at top-volume, and for whatever reason, that makes people not like me. It seems that especially here in law school, the appropriate personality is reserved.

I would want to be able to trust people more, and to have an easier time making good friends. I want to be more organized and procrastinate less (like, say, doing this instead of outlining). I would like to be confident, to be one of those women who just always thinks she looks good and deserves the best in life...I think that would be a great personality to have.

2. Name a good make-out song (I believe the kids these days would call that "baby-making music").

Try A Little Tenderness, Otis Redding, #11 on his greatest hits CD.
Anything by Jill Scott
Son of a Preacher Man, Dusty Springfield
Anything by Bob Marley
Sexual Healing, Marvin Gaye

Sorry...I could go on and on...I heart making out.

3. What did Britney say to Kevin when she found out she was pregnant? What was his response?

B: "Look baybeeeeeee, I'm, like, all knocked up and shit."
K: "You WHORE, how could you? And with FRED DURST? Jesus!"
B: "It's yours dumbass."
K: "Oh, I'm so excited, you're going to be the best mom ever...can I have some money to go to Vegas with my friends...I don't want to be the only one that can't afford a whore. PLEEEEEAAAASSSE!!!"

4. Did Oswald act alone?

I don't know. I have no theory. I did have a big crush on Oswald on The Drew Carey Show though.

5. Are you superstitious? Do you believe in luck, karma, fate, the supernatural, etc?

Let me tell you a little story.

My first husband cheated on me. A lot. With everyone he could find. In fact, I would go so far as to say that he never let marriage cramp his dating style whatsoever.

Eventually, he started f*cking this girl who was the fiance of a guy he worked with. He moved in with her approximately one week after he left me, and then spent two years begging me to come back to him and promising to leave her if I would just take him back so we could "start over."

Even though it was the most horrendously painful time of my life, since I had really thought we were soulmates and all that jazz, and so many times I just wanted to take him back, because, well, that's what abused women do, I never did thanks mostly to support from my family and especially M.

He married this girl. They had a baby together. He cheats on her. I know he does because, well, of course he does!

He is now accused of some very terrible crimes, most of which involve the victimization of women, and his wife has to go to court with him and stand there and listen to all the horrible things he's done.

So, do I believe in karma? You bet'cha.

Don't get me wrong, the wife and kid are clearly not responsible for his criminal behavior, but, he is going to go to prison for a long time, and frankly, she knew me...she knew he was married to me, she looked me in the eye so many times and knew she was f*cking my husband and didn't even blink, so, aside from the kid, I don't feel too sorry for him or for her. All of this might be different if it had been handled differently by them, or if I hadn't been 21 years old losing my first true love, or if he hadn't been abusive, or whatever...but, overall, yeah, not a lot of sympathy for either of them.
