My first game of tag...

Sweet lil' Meg has tagged me to list my top 5 favorite Christmas songs. I have never been tagged befo', so I will try to do a very good job listing them. In hopes that I might be tagged in the future, cuz Lord knows I have the hardest time coming up with things to say.

So, here they are - Eri's top 5 favorite Christmas songs:

5. Silent Night - really like the new Sarah McLachlan version
4. Step into Christmas - Elton John - put on your dancing shoes if you are going to play this one.
3. Baby, It's Cold Outside - Dean Martin - one of the best songs I've ever heard that sums up the entirely different way men and women think
2. O Holy Night - Martina McBride - very strong and powerful version but still stays true to the original version (unlike Xtina's version)

and my very favoritest, makes the me the happiest, and causes me to dance around and sing like a elfin maniac....

1. The Happiest Christmas Tree - by Nat King Cole

Oh yeah, Inviting Smiles you ask? What was that all about? Well, I don't really feel like going into details about it (I might just cry - that is how mad I am). But, go here to read about them - and make sure TO NEVER ORDER ANYTHING FROM THEM. EVER. They suck.

Signs that exams are dangerous and should be outlawed.

Helloooo and Merry Christmas everyone!

Yay! Exams are over and now I am in Nashville playing wifey while the Knight goes to work.

Playing wifey has been good so far. This morning, I updated our Christmas address list and got to work on our Christmas cards. A little late I know, but the Christmas cards we ordered never came (never order from www.invitingsmiles.com - their products look adorable, but their customer service is terrible), so now I am improvising. I am sending out regular cards and enclosing a copy of this in each one:


Hopefully, people will like them!

Then, I did some laundry and met the Knight for lunch. I've been up since 7:30, and it seems like a lot more should be accomplished by now, but I'm telling you, updating our Christmas card addresses has taken forever. Even though we only got married 2 and 1/2 years ago, so many addresses are already out of date.

Okay, so this is why I think exams should be outlawed and are extremely dangerous. When people take exams, they get stressed. Their stress makes them unable to sleep. Their inability to sleep affects their behavior during the day. I like to call this disease examnesia. I believe a lack of sleep led to the following mishaps which I experienced over the past two weeks.

1. I put toothpaste on my razor and tried to brush my teeth.
2. I squeezed face wash on my toothbrush and tried to brush my teeth. (apparently me and toothbrush aren't working out so well)
3. I tried to remove my eye makeup with fingernail polish remover (yeah, that one stung).
4. For two days I subsisted entirely off of dried apricots and Williams-Sonoma peppermint bark.
5. I walked to school to take my exam, realized I left my coffee at home, so I walked home to get the coffee. After getting home, I grabbed a few other things and walked back to school. Once I got to school, I realized that yet again, I did not have my coffee. A similar situation happened last year, but with hot tea.

Although I feel that the above evidence is conclusive evidence which indicates exams are dangerous and should be OUTLAWED, the world of academia may not be persuaded by my experience alone. Perhaps I am an anomaly. Thusly, I would ask all of my loyal blogreaders to leave their own hard proof. Once a list of sufficient length (I will decide what constitutes "sufficient") is collected, I fully intend to submit it to our school's dean. After that, I anticipate the so-called "snowball effect" and predict that within 5 years, exams will cease to exist. This will only happen if we work together though!

So, put your thinking caps on (which may be hard to find if you just finished exams) and let me know what symptoms you experienced with suffering from examnesia.

100th Post! Too Bad, It's not special :(

Blogger tells me that this is my 100th post. Yippee! That is so exciting! If I didn't have a big final tomorrow, I would definitely use this as a reason to drink massive quantities of wine and go shopping.

But, that exam I have? Yeah, I hate it. Almost as much as Business Associations. This one is Gratuitous Transfers. If B.A. is the terrorizing bully, then G.T. is the Chinese water-torturer. Very slow and painful death.

Oh, and because I am a dork and have no time to write, here is one of those cutesy/whiny twists on a famous Christmas poem.

'Twas the night before finals,
and through the college,
the students were praying
for last minute knowledge.
Most were quite sleepy,
but none touched their beds,
while visions of essays
danced in their heads.
out in the taverns,
a few were still drinking,
and hoping that liquor
would loosen their thinking.
In my room, I had been pacing,
and dreading exams
I soon would be facing.
My roommate was speechless,
her nose in her books,
and my comments to her
drew unfriendly looks.
I drained all the coffee,
and brewed a new pot,
no longer caring
that my nerves were all shot.
I stared at my notes,
but my thoughts were muddy,
My eyes went ablur,
I just couldn't study.
"Some pizza might help,"
I said with a shiver,
But each place I called
refused to deliver.
I'd nearly concluded
that life was too cruel,
with futures depending
on grades had in school.
When all of a sudden,
our door opened wide,
and Patron Saint Put-It-Off
ambled inside.
His spirit was careless,
his manner was mellow,
all of a sudden he started to bellow.
"On Cliff notes, on Crib notes,
on last year's exams,
on wing-it and sling-it,
and last minute crams!"
His message delivered,
he vanished from sight.
But we heard him laughing
outside in the night.
Your teachers have pegged you,
so just do your best.
HAPPY FINALS TO ALL,
and TO ALL A GOOD TEST.

That's all for now. Mwa!

Whew!

I am not blogging much because, up until today, I was boycotting the law school this semester while studying for exams. Therefore, I am studying at home and do not have the dang innernet (except for my cell phone. But as much as I write, blogging via the cell phone would probably cause permanent hand paralysis. Which now that I think about it, might be a brilliant way to get a break on my exams. Hmmmm.) Anyway, don't be mad, I'm still thinking about ya'll ALL the time. Hi!

I did want to share one teensy weensy thing though. Just realquicklikethis. And then I'll get back to studying. Because I am a good little law student.

Since I have been in law school, one of my biggest hopes and fears was to get pregnant during law school.

Sometimes I hoped to get pregnant (this hope often arose during stressful, crazy times), so that I could drop out of law school and so that the only horn book I would ever have to read again was one to my toddler about trumpets and saxophones.

Getting pregnant during law school (or any time for that matter) has also been one of my greatest fears, because as much as I like other people's babies:
1. We are poor.
1(a). I don't like poop.
2. The Knight and I can barely take care of ourselves, and the idea of living, eating, and breathing for someone other than myself is terrifying.
3. Then I would have to drop out of law school (or at least pause it), which would push back my timeline EVEN MORE. (Yes, I have a timeline. Remind me to tell you about it sometime.)
4. I know what I look like while driving a minivan (obviously a requirement for any new mother) and it is not pretty. See below:


So, last night, Daisy and I were trying to study for my most hated class yet, Business Associations. I really hate this class. Like I hate bullies. And terrorists. Which I realize are kind of the same thing, but that is how much I hate B.A. It is a bullying terrorist causing mayhem in my law school and amongst my friends.

ANYWAYYYYYY, I realized during my very good and concentrated studying, that I am over the pregnant hump. Or Bump. Lump. Whatever. As far as I know, I am not with child right now. And even if I got pregnant RIGHT THIS SECOND (don't worry, it's not possible. The Knight is far, far away from me at this very moment), I could still finish law school, study for the bar, and take the bar well before any little baby bumpkin would be due.

Success! No baby is going to sabatoge my law school career. Not that there is a baby in the works at all, but even if there was...I would be able to finish everything that is law school related.

Aren't ya'll relieved? And so glad I shared that tidbit of information with all my innernet friends? I thought you would be. I am too.

Upper Invasion Leads to Lower Persuasion

Okay, so I've had aLOT of margaritas, and if there are grammatical errors...I am sorry. I will probably fix them later.

TWO things I MUST tell you about:

1. MEN IN TREES is now after Grey's Anatomy! You must watch it. It's like Sex and the City meets Northern Exposure. I don't know if any of you watch this, but since the Knight and I are boring and married, we like to sit at home on Friday night, drink alcohol, and discuss how hot Marin Frist and Jack are. Yeah, you know you want to hang with us. Now that it is on Thursday, we can go out both Friday and Saturday night and not feel sad that we are missing Men In Trees. Yeah, that is how much we like it. We actually MISS it when we are out on a date and

2. I just had an incredible shot - it is called a chocalate cake. It's 1/2 vanilla vodka, 1/2 Frangelica (some kind of hazelnut liquor) and then after you take the shot, you bite a lemon. It is so amazing, because it tastes just like a piece of chocolate cake.

3. Apparently, I can just never stop with two. It's like me and shopping. Anyway, did you ever notice that Anthony (Char's gay friend from Sex and the City) is the new "hairapy" voice? I love him! Get Hairapy! I think I'm a pink.

Okay, that is all for now. Just had to share!

P.S. the title? that is what my mom used to tell me when discussing the horrors of french kissing. Heee!
