I'll admit it... a.k.a. The Grey's Anatomy Post

Meredith Grey? I just don't get it. I mean, sure, McDreamy the emotional mindfuck may not be a prize (despite his being a fine physical specimen), and I don't know enough about Chris O'Donnell's veterinarian character to make an assessment of him either way, but still. What IS it about her that makes these guys (not to mention poor old George) go gaga? Because to me, she just seems whiny, irrational, unstable, and emotionally needy. Just what we need in Hollywood -- more strong roles for females. [/sarcasm] But then again, that could just be the emotionally er...insensitive part of me speaking.

Celeb Gossip Blogs

Okay, I admit it: I have a celebrity gossip blog on my links-I-check-daily roundup. Don't worry, though, I'm not about to turn this blog into any version of that...well, at the very worst, it'll be gossip once removed. Anyway, apparently Christina Ricci had a breast tattoo inked recently. I know this is totally wrong of me to say on so many levels, but her acting cred has kinda gone down in my eyes. I know, I know, having a breast tattoo has nothing to do with acting abilities. But still. Call this one of the few times I make an irrational judgment.

Anyway, what I'm really getting at is...breast tattoos? Or really...tattoos in general, for that matter?? Tattoos are just so permanent that I can't ever really foresee being so passionate about some form of expression that I would want it on my body forever. And, yes, in case you hadn't guessed, I really am horribly commitment phobic.

Life? Life is good.

Fiji was beautiful. It was sooo relaxing. I sped through five books. After law school and a three year drought on pleasure reading, it felt amazing to be reading for fun once again. Here's a sampling from my 400+ photos. Yup, 400+. Shutterbug much?

So much blue agua.

Bula Fiji!

T minus 14 hours until my flight leaves NYC for LA (and then to Nadi from there).

The first leg of my stay will be at the Wayalailai Ecohaven Resort. The next leg will be...Nope, even I don't know!

Kind of nervous about this whole fly-by-the-seat-of-my-pants travelling, but apparently it is the way to do Fiji. I'll report back in two weeks. *salutes*

It's weird that I'll be starting work soon. Well, after Fiji, which is a huge huge HUGE marker on the calendar between now and work. However, considering this is the first "real job" I'll ever have gone to, it feels kind of weird to think I may never have another "first day of school." Or at least...that I won't have one for a really really long time. WEIRD. And, considering the things that I'll be missing in an office of business casual, possibly...good?

Welcome to New York

I just killed a monster cockroach the size of my thumb. EWEWEWEWEWWWWW. It was sitting on top of a stack of books, so I put on my trusty Jack Purcells and squished the motherfucker. I then threw out the cockroach, book and all. Sorry, Ellsworth, but "Law on the Midway" now has a permanent audience of one.

Stingray != Crocodile, but It's Still Sad

The Crocodile Hunter died from a stingray attack. Although I didn't watch his show or know much about him, he leaves behind a family. He lived a full life, and I hope they remember him for his courage and energy. All the best to them.

Today I unpacked eight more boxes and set up my DVD/VCR, PS2, and my new printer (it's wireless, baby!). Tomorrow I'll hopefully finish installing my deadbolt. Yes. By myself.

Who says you need boys around to fix things?
