her: you could probably do spinach instead of asparagus, or squash– really any green vegetable, no? me: I bet courgette would work well if you cut it lengthwise her: what is that? you are speaking british again me: oh shit

Keeping it on the DL

I share most things about my life in this blog. Especially if it is amusing. Yet, there has been something going on in my life for the past week that is quite amusing that I haven’t been quite ready to share. Because for me, right now, it is 75% painful, 25% amusing. I have lice. I believe I got it from my hairdresser but there is no way to be sure. I never had lice as a kid, surprisingly enough. …

40 Before 30

I love lists. I have numerous to do lists. I make a grocery list and a meal plan every Thursday. I make careful packing lists whenever I travel. Right now, as we are moving soon, I currently am working on an inventory of all things in this flat. So, I have decided to take this love for list making a bit further. Taking inspiration from Maggie, I have decided to create a list of 40 things I would like to …

3 Months Out

Jen: I should really stop swearing so much before we move back to the States. Rob: Fuck that. I think we are ready.

Just blue

The truth is, I have nothing witty or compelling to share today. I am just blue. No particular reason. It is still cold in Plymouth. I had been hoping against hope that it would start to get warmer, but we have just been hit with another week of frozen mornings. Sometimes the thought of getting up day after day to put on two pairs of pants just kills me. Rob and I are doing nothing tonight, we are both just …

rabies

Times have changed. No longer is a 6 month quarantine required if you move your pet internationally. In fact, if you do it correctly, there is no quarantine at all. Yet, there is a catch. No one seems to be able to give you a straight answer regarding what is actually necessary. In the past two weeks I have spoken to the Department for Environment, Food and Rural Affairs, The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health, The Center for …

never a whole chicken

Chicken is a staple in our house. I would say we have it 3 to 4 times a week in various formats. I mix it up. Chicken tacos. Chicken soup. Chicken stir fry. Chicken and rice. Chicken wrapped in bacon. Chicken pasta. The other nights during the week we either have pork or Rob has some form of ground beef (mince for you Brits) and I abstain. I hate ground beef. Luckily, Rob and I both happily eat chicken. I …

New things

I have been away. Not away from home, but away as in mind wandering. After the applications were sent and scores mailed something started happening. I started getting e-mails from other law schools asking me to consider applying and waiving the $75 application fee. There are two ways to look at getting e-mails like this: The school is rubbish and your scores will make it look better The school is excellent and rejecting you will give it a higher selectivity …

Solitude

I haven’t done the whole 9 to 5 thing in quite awhile. It has been school with work thrown in wherever it would fit. The ramifications of a full time job are interesting if not unexpected. I don’t have as much time alone with my thoughts, which is probably for the best at this point, but the time I do have is keenly felt. My mind seems to be drifting to dark places with more regularity. The uncertainty I feel …
