i've been working

Angie left me a comment letting me know that the people demand updates. Frankly, I didn't know I had people, but who am I to argue?

I've always thought updates would be much easier if people would write in with specific questions because I can never think of what to write. Problem is, nobody wrote in with specific questions. So I decided to make some up. It's make-believe. You know, like on Mr. Rogers' Neighborhood.

What have you been up to since your last update? What's keeping you so busy that you can't muster the time or energy to post?
I've been working.

I work, too. That's no excuse.
Well, I also took a bar exam in February. I thought it would be a good idea to be licensed in two states.

You want to be licensed to practice law in two states? Are you crazy?
I'm not sure yet. The doctor is running some tests.

Did studying for the bar exam really take so much of your time that you couldn't post an update on your blog?
Well, no, because I didn't study nearly as much as I should have. The answer to my family law essay was "Yes." But like I said, I was also working. And we were closing this big deal, and millions of dollars got wired to our client after the papers were signed, and I had to make like nine different versions of 100 different pieces of paper, and it was all pretty crazy.

That sounds serious. Did you get a cut of the money?
Unfortunately, no. And if I had gotten even a 1% cut, I would have quit my job, paid off all my debts, and moved to a remote unnamed island off the coast of Mexico by now. And I would have hired someone to write this blog post two weeks ago.

I still don't believe you haven't had time to write on your blog. What else have you been doing? Have you been compulsively watching X-Files on Netflix streaming?
Yes. I am almost finished with season 7. It's such a great show! I keep wondering why I never watched X-Files when it was actually airing on television.

I heard David Duchovny isn't billed as a main character in seasons 8 and 9 of the X-Files. What kind of crap is that?
I know, right? Without Fox Mulder, seasons 8 and 9 of the X-Files aren't even really the X-Files anymore. I think I'll call them the Y-Files. Or perhaps the Why-Files, as in Why did anybody bother to make this show without David Duchovny in front of the camera week after week?

You are not as clever as you think you are.
I know.

The washing machine just beeped. Shouldn't you go move the laundry to the dryer?
Probably, but the clothes I laundered yesterday are still in the dryer, and I don't want to fold them.

Isn't your husband kind of type-A about stuff like that? And since he's busy making cables for some new electronic toy he bought, don't you think he'll ask you to take care of the laundry in the very near future?
Excellent point. Perhaps I should go to sleep so I'll have a good excuse not to!

Thanks for indulging me in a game of make-believe.



  1. Ha! This post cracked me up! And I agree that you really have no excuse to not post...but then again, I'm less busy than you and I don't even have a blog. But it's because I spend all my time reading other people's blogs! Anyway, I think you should start posting some delicious recipes on your blog. You can even do some gluten free ones! Or maybe you can do a regular recipe and I'll try to adapt it to gluten free and post about the results! Or you can just blog summaries of every X-files episode you watch.

  2. I love that this turned into more of a twisted conversation between you and... you. Classic. I second the recipe idea!

  3. It's been over a month. Time for an update!
