lame

I can't believe I've only been writing like, once a week lately. I guess there's not a lot going on that's particularly funny or interesting. Today sucked. Like, really sucked. The only good thing that happened was I got like, 10 people thrown in jail. That's pretty good for one day.

I don't know. I just walked in the door, poured myself a martini, and ordered some Chinese food. Now I'm wrapped under a thick red blanket watching exceptionally bad television.

I want to wake up when it's 2010.

Somebody do or say something inspiring.

Unless you found this blog by googling something about the bar exam. Then you don't have to say anything. Just go look over holder in due course. Or drink a bottle of wine. Either way...

I do wish I had something inspiring to say. I greatly hate letting you down. Hiding out until we ring in 2010 does hold some attraction; 2009 started with such promise...what a dud. I think we just have to enjoy whatever little victories or "I rock" moments that come our way this year. And hey, throwing 10 people in jail sounds like a pretty good day to me. I wish I had something that concrete to point to at the end of the day. The Closer's on tonight...that's a step up from exceptionally bad TV.

Enjoy the downtime while it lasts - it never seems to last for long. I got married in January, graduated law school in May, am taking the Bar exam next week (and am about ready for my head to implode from the studying), have an 8 year old stepson living with us 24/7, and my husband and son moved into my 800 square foot condo before we got married. Currently no serious job prospects after the bar, even with my fantastic background prior to law school. I tell my husband every day that I long for the days when "nothing much is going on" and I want those days to stick around for years. Suck down that martini, enjoy your MSG and cherish the boredom while you can. You never know what life will throw your way any day now...

Oh yea, totally found your blog prior to studying for the Bar exam, and I keep reading it anyway...

I'll totally buy you something. completely unrelated: I'm going to start replacing the expression "bigger than a breadbox." with "bigger than a franzia box", effective immediately. yay or nay?

Yeah, sad. You Chicago kids used to be such entertaining reads.

Grace said...

Awww... Anonymous... thanks for thinking we Chicago kids used to be entertaining. That's better than never being entertaining, I guess. I actually think I'm cool with being a blogger has-been.

I mean, it's just a blog. It's what you read when you are supposed to be working or studying or whatever.

Life changes, Anonymous. I'm trying to make mine better. And be a good attorney at the same time. Sorry if I'm not entertaining. You're free to not read, of course.

I read your blog everyday and I did NOT find it because of the bar exam. Think I found it from Overflowing Brain. Anyways, love your blog and chinese and a martini sounds perfect to me! Keep blogging.

I love the blog...it's how I keep up with you.

Here's your inspiring note. I can't wait to see you next month!! Dinner is on me so I hope you have ditched that stinkin' anti cheese and creme brule diet thingie. Big hugs and smoochies from the land of all that is Obama.

So Gracie, life too dull, eh? COME AND VISIT ALREADY.
Also, I have a good stolen lines prop. I think:
"But she's skinny. Don't ever marry a skinny woman, Alexander. They open their legs for you like thay are performing a tragedy."
From Thomas Wiseman's CZAR.

I only blogged once, what with my exciting life. Whoops, got to wipe that dripping sarcasm from the screen
LOVE YOU,
Magic Vag

I can't wait to throw 10 people in jail!

Alleged Lady said...

Grace, I agree. 2009 has sucked. 2010 is going to be fantastic. Amazing, even. I feel incredible vibes from 2010. It has a purple aura. Or something.

The only solution is drinks.

It may be cheesy but here are a couple of links that seem to make me feel less shitty about life.

2009 was, literally, the worst year of my life. And I've had some bad ones. I fear this may continue to happen as I grow older?

Anonymous here again, Grace. I appreciate the commitment you and your friends had to your blogs. And I totally understand your priorities. I was merely being wistful. And no, I won't stop checking your blog for new posts. I just miss you.

Dear Grace,

This may not be inspiring, but I wanted to post today to thank you. Thank you for your blog, thank you for the bar-exam time, for the wonderfully snarkey post-bar exam comments to future bar takers; thank you for your beautiful but disturbing dog; thank you for the heartfelt posts about your friend who died; for sharing the very best and very worst of your experiences; for the kitten posts; for putting 10 people in jail, for bringing such cool, random bloggers to Law With Grace, for Stolen Lines, for thinking of your little neighbor girl, and for LOUD TALKERS everywhere. In the middle of a bad day, bad week, bad everything, it's always such an irreverent blessing to be able to stop by here and read, smile or ponder life for a bit. Everyone needs a place to be. Thank you for being one of those places.

Lisa said...

Um, yeah, what Law Daze said.

I found your blog before taking the bar exam, and even though I'm now in the throes of it, I decided that checking for a new post on your blog was a good way to spend my 5 minute break. And I was right, because your blog is always funny and insightful even when you're lamenting your lack of inspiration and sucky days.

Grace said...

Awww... You guys make me feel so good!!

And FYI, it wasn't really ten people thrown in jail, it was slightly less. But I was rounding up. I'm working on ten as a goal.

I also finished up a project so now I will have a lot more time for writing.
