So, I am an idiot. I had court today in the middle of nowhere, and I stopped on the way out of town to fill up the car. Apparently I remembered my receipt but drove off with my wallet on top of the car. God knows where it is now, but it had my driver's license, credit/debit cards, bar card, insurance card, and tickets to the Old 97's show on Saturday in it. Ugh.

I didn't realize until I was half an hour down the road and tried to stop somewhere for lunch, and then I called my office (because I couldn't go retrace my steps without being way late to court) and called Zach to panic at him.

But now everything's canceled and I've printed out the thing to get a new bar card, and I dug out my passport to be ID for a while. God knows if Ticketmaster will help me out on the Old 97's tickets, but they better. Sigh.

So, I spent basically all day yesterday impromptu second-chairing a felony trial. Which basically meant I sat there and took notes and did random things as needed. But we won! The original charge was a third-degree felony (two to ten years) and the jury ended up only finding him guilty of a Class C misdemeanor (fine only). I didn't have a whole lot to do with it, except writing the lesser-included offenses into the jury charge, but yay! And now I have a couple of felonies of my own to handle. They've been indicting everyone and his brother lately, so. That's why I'm here, I guess.

And now I have a long weekend coming up, so I'm driving to Denton after work tomorrow night. Two weekends in a row! I'm gonna get spoiled.

So, today I got ANOTHER flower delivery. Apparently ProFlowers gave Zach a free upgrade and then didn't cancel the original order, so I got a mini-version of the bouquet I got on Friday. Same card and everything, and they didn't double-charge Zach or anything. Valentine's is MAGIC.

Tulips. Near as I can tell, purple and red. They are so pretty and I cannot wait for them to bloom.

Okay, work. Everything's mostly fine, but: I have just over a year experience of actually practicing law. I know like nothing, in actual fact. If I have done something wrong, I will most likely not know unless you tell me. If I somehow offended you, I will not know unless you tell me. I can't figure all this stuff out on my own.

God, I hope I can make it through 2011 down here. If I have to move sooner rather than later, that probably wouldn't be the worst thing in the world. I know I'm smart enough for this - like, at the case review meeting in Austin, the director of the PD program told me that I would be trying felonies already if I were hanging out a shingle. But I don't know what I'm doing wrong unless someone tells me instead of talking about me.

Zach should never be a spy. (Context: I told him I wanted flowers for Valentine's Day, because sometimes I am a cliché. But I've never gotten them, so. And we haven't talked about it for like a week.)

And then we both had a snow day and were on Gchat )

Luckily I find this complete lack of spy skill adorable. Also, eeee, flowers!
commieprincess: (Default)
Woo, snow day! Where "snow" means mostly "black ice." It doesn't look like much outside but it's currently 25 degrees and the stairs outside my apartment are totally covered. No work today, so I'm watching Tabitha's Salon Takeover and planning a nap later on. I also got "I Love You, Man" from Redbox and I have "The Kids Are All Right" from Netflix, so yay.

Ugh, sick. If this had to happen, I'm glad it's this weekend and not last. I've been spending most of it on the couch or in bed. I was watching the 1993 FA Cup final (Arsenal v. Sheffield Wednesday), and the shorts were hilarious. Now I'm watching Sex and the City, apparently the first season, and 1998 cell phones are even more hilarious than 1993 soccer shorts. And I just saw that Greek was on Netflix Instant so I know what I'm gonna be doing the rest of the night.

We made cookies! Merry Christmas if you celebrate, if not, enjoy the weekend! And everyone is welcome to have a cookie.

The dress arrived, I tried it on, it fits, I am in love. The skirt is five layers, two of which are just tulle. I feel like a ballerina or something, but without the eating disorder. And I have red shoes and polka-dot tights and red dangly earrings and a gold purse made entirely of sparkles. This will probably be the most dressed-up I've gotten since Cat's wedding in 2008. So excited! I will try to take pictures but I don't know if either of us actually has a camera, just a phone. We'll see.

Hey, it's December! My bank account is very happy I am almost done with Christmas shopping.
commieprincess: (Default)
Hey, I have 18 Christmas cards all ready to send (and probably more I bought in years past but cannot find now). Who would like one? Leave your address here - even if I got it before, I probably lost it. Comments are screened.

The cards are really cute! And I will try to be clever! I love sending/getting cards.

Court today. 200+ cases on the docket, and it felt like every single defendant wanted to talk to me. We were there from 8:30 to nearly 3:30 (with a lunch break, thank god). But, like, introvert's nightmare. Third day in a row in court, too. Ugh. I am very glad I have a two-day week coming up. And then a couple of more.

Also, I have been at my job for a year! This means I get a 401(k), and because I am a boring adult-type person, this is quite exciting.

They're flat, knee-high, and they actually fit over my stupid gigantic calves. I will wear these with dresses and tights and look adorable this winter. ("Winter," really, down here, but.)

Oh hey, it's been a week since I updated. Not much besides work has been happening, though I did do some awesome research at work yesterday afternoon that led to my boss telling me she loves me. Not like that, I'm pretty sure, but it's always nice to feel like I'm actually good at my job. Can't believe I've been there almost a year. I don't know how long I'll stay - a lot will really depend on if our grant gets renewed or if we're shutting down at the end of 2011. I'm sure I don't want to be in Beeville forever, but it's okay for now. If they do shut down (because the counties can't afford us), I could probably get a transfer within the organization to another office, ideally Austin or San Antonio, but that'd probably be doing civil work of some kind. Dallas and Houston either have or will be opening public defenders soon, so we'll see. Whatever ends up happening, I'm getting good experience here.

Also, I booked my flight for Christmas! Now I am craving winter clothes. Specifically flat-heeled boots and sweater-dresses. I'm gonna finish watching the first half of Arsenal-West Ham and then go shop it up in Corpus. Woo.

Rocktober catchup, again:

Kanye West - Runaway (Side note: oh my god, y'all, I am ADDICTED to this song. Even though Kanye cannot really sing! IT DOESN'T MATTER.)

Stars - Barricade

The Flying Burrito Brothers - Hot Burrito #1

Old 97's - The Easy Way (Side note: their new album came out Tuesday! I bought it but haven't listened yet. Reviews are excellent.)

Sondre Lerche - Good Luck

Actual life update: work is going well, may FINALLY be going to trial Monday on this case that's been reset like three times now. We'll see how that goes. I just want to make it to Friday and my last trip to Houston this season. Five weeks is FAR too long to stay in Beeville.

Catching up on my Rocktober uploads:

Kelly Willis - Don't Come the Cowboy with Me, Sonny Jim!

Afghan Whigs - Crazy

And I totally have a girlcrush on Megan Rapinoe, who plays for the US national team and Chicago. She looks excellent in a hat.
