I feel really bad about throwing this away…

I don’t know how many times I’ve thought that. Most times I think that when the “this” is something that I feel like I should use, but it’s been sitting in my house unused for approximately 5 years and, since I’ve decided not to be a hoarder, it has to go. To be fair it doesn’t always go into the trash, sometimes my sister-in-law inherits these things.

But other things that I feel guilty about trashing are things that actually are trash, but I feel like I should be recycling. Like plastic bags (aka the bane of my existence), old makeup compacts, water filters, batteries, printer cartridges, etc… This morning I came across this post from The Green Phone Booth about where those things (and other oddball items) can be recycled.

Not-So-Secret Confession Time

I think this is something everyone already knows about me, but here it is… I love love love bad movies. And not just any bad movies,  bad sci-fi movies. Particularly bad disaster movies, but I’m willing to settle for anything involving mutated or genetically modified animals.

I’m currently watching one of my favorites “Day After Tomorrow.”  I think it’s particularly fitting considering the state of our environment lately. You know, what with the massive floods in Australia and all the mass animal deaths. As you might expect, I’ve been pretty freaked out about this, especially the Aflockalypse (that’s the twitter hastage, I think it’s hilarious!).

Luckily, I have a lot of disaster movie experience to aid me in times of an apocalypse. I know most people haven’t watched as many crappy sci-fi movies as I have, so allow me to share.

First, avoid large cities. That’s where most of the destruction will occur.

Second, find a group of people you can trust. Don’t allow creepy loners into the group–they’re probably behind the apocalyptic event or are otherwise evil.

Third, find a pretty remote location and look yourself into a secure location with lots of food and water. This is crucial: Make sure that you’re alone in the remote location before locking yourself in–too many times dangerous genetically modified animals are lurking in dark corners.

Fourth, for the love of God, do not, I repeat, do not venture out alone. Going anywhere alone, especially in the dark, is basically a suicide mission.

Fifth, be a cute girl; you’re guaranteed to survive until the sequel.

Happiness comes when you overcome the most impossible challenge

It’s been a while since I came across a new yogi tea tag. To be honest, I’m not positive that it’s new, but it is fitting right now. Life has been… challenging lately. I won’t go into details, but I think everyone can relate to this: Sometimes, even when your life is really great, small things (or big things) happen that rain on your parade and cause you to lose perspective. Things happen that cause you to forgot that you are really lucky and life is really good. And sometimes all you need to remind you of that is something like this tea tag.

Hmm… I seem to be out of witty blog post titles…

First off, let me say that I have been feeling SUPER guilty for not blogging in so long. Or I was until I looked at my stats… apparently, you guys love me so much (just go with it) that you have been reading old posts in my absence! My heart is warmed, which is good because my office isn’t and I’m on the verge of losing fingers to frostbite.

Anyway… I’ve been super busy with work and life and have had no time for blogging. Ok. That was a lie. I have had time, but couldn’t bring myself to do it. It’s like this… I’m a lawyer. And, contrary to the glamorous courtroom filled life lawyers have on t.v., that’s not how it is in real life. In real life, most lawyers see the inside of a courtroom about once a month and spend the rest of their time talking on the phone, emailing, typing, and in meetings. So, when I leave work the last thing I want to do is open my laptop and stare at a computer screen some more. But, I think I have a solution. Marathon blogging on the weekend with scheduled posts throughout the week. Yep. That’s the answer.

In other news, today is the hubby’s birthday… So Happy Birthday!
