Monday miscellany

  • Vacaaaaatiioooooon! This morning at my office's monthly staff meeting, everyone giving their little department report was to also talk about any fun plans they had for the summer. So I talked about how I'm going to D.C. over 4th of July weekend to visit my parents and to go to the big all-class reunion for the school I went to (and graduated from) in New Delhi, India. I am so excited to see so many old friends, including Lisa, plus people I haven't seen in the 23 years since graduation. Plus my mom and dad rented a big house on the Outer Banks of North Carolina the last week of July, and Jason and I are taking the kids, along with my brothers and significant others and children. There will be surfing and suntans and grilling and at least one meal at Awful Arthur's. My family has been vacationing on the Outer Banks since I was 8, and I love the fact that we still all go there as a family. I've been really looking forward to both trips, but talking about it this morning made me almost cry with anticipation. I can't wait.
  • Sleeeeeeeeep! For the past week I have been working like crazy on a big project at work. It's been really fun, litigation-y lawyering that I love, but the timing has been crappy because Jason has been out of town and there simply haven't been enough hours in the day to get everything done. So I've been working late at night and on furlough days and into the wee hours of the morning. And I'm fucking tired. But it's done now, so I can get some rest.
  • Goooooooooooooool! The World Cup starts on Friday. I adore the World Cup. I've always liked soccer, but then I saw Argentina play Nigeria in the men's gold medal game of the 1996 Olympics, and it was seriously the best sporting event I've ever witnessed (and I've seen quite a few), so like turned to obsessive love. I'm trying to figure out a way to sneak the Fiddy out of the house and have it installed in my office for a month so I can watch all the games.
That is all. I'm off to deliver my brief, and then may stop for a margarita. Happy Monday, everyone.


  1. Yay! Very excited to see you in a few weeks! It's going to be a great weekend. And your Outer Banks vacay will be fantastic!

  2. what is this outer banks things you are talking about ?

  3. It's the place where I will be kicking your ass at miniature golf.

  4. What part of the Outer Banks do you go to? As kids we always went to Nags Head every year. Now as adults we tend to visit Topsail Beach which is further done NC's coast. I know you guys will have a blast. Looking forward to seeing you in DC.

  5. We've been gradually working our way north. We started in Kitty Hawk/ Kill Devil Hills, then a bunch of years in Southern Shores/ Duck, and this year we'll be in Corolla.

    Looking forward to seeing you at the reunion as well!
