Life happiness = bad blogging

Well, as we've all discovered...the fact that my life is going well (and busy) seems to bad for the blogging business. I honestly blame it on a combination of being happy in my relationship, getting TiVO, and being so busy at work. Mostly TiVO to be honest with you. Holy shit, by the end of the week I have about 30 shows recorded, and then I spend all weekend laying around watching them. Because that's how I roll.

Today The Boy and I are enjoying our Saturday apart, which is nice. I think it's good to keep some personal time to yourself, so that you don't get on each other's nerves. So, what's new?

Last night we saw Borat. Holy shit. So freaking funny. Oh my God. Get thee to a theater immediately and see this movie. It's so politically incorrect, it's awesome. The Boy has a special talent for languages, as I think I've mentioned before, and has been talking like Borat for the past month...he was so excited before the movie, it was like having a 5 year old there. He's been walking around since last night going "Very nice!' I asked him how long this is going to last, and he told me anywhere from 1 week to 15 years, so that seems...uh...ominous. I'm not sure how much I can really take. Good thing he's such a good boy, I'm willing to put up with near constant Borat-isms for at least a little while.

So, today I am making an apple pie, cleaning my house, watching some taped shows, and reading a book...pretty much all at the same time. The other night one of my friends told me that I was the person who had changed the most since we graduated from law school because I'm so different now. I told her that I'm actually the person that has changed the least. If they had known me BEFORE law school, they would know that I was never like that before, and I hope never to be like that again. I am starting to get back into the swing of real life. I like it very much. Next week I'm getting sworn in...if there's any lesson to be had there, it should be that you can have fun in law school, decide not to follow all the lemmings off the stress cliff (as much as possible), and give up on believing grades have anything to do with you as a person, and still pass the bar exam, get a great job, blog all your experiences and make some great friends, and end up being sworn in as a lawyer just like all the people who wasted three years of their lives in abject misery.
