diagnosis: brain paralysis; prescription: vacation

6-hour practice multi-state bar exam today. 200 multiple-choice questions. my brain is in revolt. good thing i'm going away to seattle for the long weekend. i will try to do at least some studying - at least, i will probably break down and self-grade my exam just to figure out if i scored a 40%, 50%, or 60% - but my poor enfeebled brain simply won't allow me to impose much more pain upon it. so i will pack my swimsuit, my sunscreen, and my white sun hat, and prepare to actually enjoy myself for a few days. maybe i'll finally finish reading that freud biography! (erm, yes, i have a somewhat unusual conception of leisure activities. whatever.)

when we're in seattle my boyfriend will have the chance to meet and hang out with my ex-girlfriend. is that weird? i'm friends with most of my exes so it doesn't seem weird to me. (anyway, we're going to the wedding of one of his ex-girlfriends in a few months.) i think it'll be entertaining to observe the clash of worlds between my nerdy internet executive boyfriend and my punk rock, quasi-working class, tomboyish ex-girlfriend. well, he does love heavy metal, underneath that buttoned-up exterior, and she's actually pretty smart and nerdy, too, under that tough and streetwise exterior. and they do have similar taste in girls, i guess. so they will have a few things in common.

    It's weird in an "oh right you used to date girls before me that's kind of hot but wait, are you sure you're into guys for the long run" kind of way.

    Have fun in Seattle!

    so where is the follow up? What happened in Seatle?

    I can't beleive I am reading so much of your blog right now. I gave up on you long ago. You have never seemed so human as you do in your blog now. That is to say, typical. Normally an insult, but enlightened one's know that it isn't.
