It's got raisins in it... you like raisins.

For those of you who blog, I have a question. Do you just go through these really weird cycles where you want to just run away and never look at your blog again, and then sometimes you want to write down everything that ever happens to you and share it with the world? Right now I'm in a "I don't care about the blog" cycle. I've been SO BUSY that I literally haven't been around much, and so maybe that's getting me out of the habit a little bit or something. Lots of stuff has been going on.

Graduation is three weeks from today. I still have exams, a paper, and LOTS of makeup work to do because of the amount of time I spent on Mock Trial these last few weeks. My parents are coming up the Thursday before graduation, and now that I've mentioned that, I'd like to just say what I hope is The Most Obvious Thing On Earth. If you are a reader of Will Work For Favorable Dicta, and you have the opportunity to meet Mama and Daddy Spatula at graduation, this blog is a SECRET. For a REASON. Just trust me on this, I know everyone thinks "I don't know why you're hiding this, it's not that bad," but my parents would not be amused. If you are someone in my life who might meet my parents, please be cool and just don't go there.

M. has been out of town for work, and I've been worried about her because she's not getting that much of a chance to contact me. But I heard from her today and she's doing fine and so I'm really relieved and happy. Not much more on this, but she's doing great.

I've been learning some life lessons about relationships, and I guess the bottom line for me is that I may not understand how attraction works, but I have to have it. I have to have chemistry. I have to feel my stomach do a little flip when I see the person. Ultimately in my life I'm looking for the total package, and right now I don't have the time to deal with any of it, but when I do, that's what I'll be looking for. Right now, even if I met Mr. Wonderful, he would get pushed to the side as I took exams, did bar review, took the bar exam, started working full-time, etc. So, that part of my life is just being put aside for now...I don't have the time or energy to deal with it.

My dad bought a sports car yesterday. My mom's message was very confusing, but he either bought a Mazda RX-8, or a Nissan Z (is that what it's called?). I'm sure I'll hear more about it soon, and maybe he'll send a picture I can post. My mom is excited because she's trying to get him to buy her a $3000 Trek bike, and he said no, but the sports car probably gives her some pretty decent leverage. When I talked to her yesterday, before they went car shopping, she said "E. Spat, whatever you do in your life, make sure you always have your own money so you never have to ask someone for the things you want." No problem there!

At any rate, I'm going through a bit of a blogging dry spell in terms of figuring out what I want to talk about...but I'm sure I'll snap out of it soon. Right now there is no Weekly Roundup yet -- I will likely try to work on it later. I just didn't have time today yet, and no one sent me any links, so I'm feeling lazy. I STILL haven't spoken to Evan about who will take over my place, and I apologize for that. Life has been insane here with work, school, Mock Trial, friends, family stuff,, I PROMISE (and this time I mean it) I'll get on that soon.
