bonjour le monde!

welcome to my blog. i still haven't decided exactly what it will be about. i predict it will consist mostly of updates about my mundane life, book and movie reviews, and some passionate rants about the political implications of various things i observe around me.

some things i like: reading, therapy, the history of ideas, my white sun hat, fresh in-season tomatoes, smart people, anastasia krupnik, ramona quimby, america's next top model, teen vogue, cook's illustrated, irony, language(s), unions, singing, my friends, my awesome sister, my awesome boyfriend.

some things i dislike:
arrogance, sexism (etc.), greed, wilful ignorance about things i think are important, misspelling, linguistic prescriptivism. (yes, i know those last two are inconsistent. sorry.)

some things i sort of dislike but i'm trying to become a better person and not dislike so much: social conservatives, economic conservatives, spoiled rich people, stupid people with power, vastly unequal relationships, mushrooms, zucchini, eggplant, beets, onions, peppers.

some things i'm trying to accomplish: be less antisocial. spend more quality time with friends. become a scrabble champion. pass the bar. understand myself. master the art of diplomacy. learn how to accessorize. go to yoga class regularly. spend more time outside before i move away from northern
california. enjoy my youth.

    if you're a punk rock lawyer does that mean i'm a punk rock lawyer too?

    your earrings comments are hilarious.

    your period pointers remind me of why maybe we didn't have band practice and just sat around and ate candy.

    I'll be less of an economic conservative if you eat more mushrooms. Start with portabello.

    jk, you're probably more of a punk rock lawyer than me, since you actually listen to punk music. i should technically call myself a "wussy indie-pop lawyer," but that just doesn't have the same ring to it.

    wt - ick, do i have to? okay, you're right, it'll be good for me. remember, socialism starts at home:

    Beets are tasty! Try some lemon juice on them.
