Well, things seem a little brighter in my world today. Yesterday my sis attended her first counselling session with a marriage counselor, and -- shock and awe -- she managed to convince her husband, he who two days before told her he was leaving her -- to go with him. She called me last night in a euphoric mood. Her words: Nothing has been resolved, but at least we're talking now. Yay!

I found and signed up for a lawjobs posting board yesterday and discovered on their website that the law school I attended in Detroit is looking for Legal Research and Writing instructors. I received an award for the best work in that class out of all of the first-year students (some 300 students), and worked as a teaching assistant for my instructor from that class the following year. So, I think I have a really, really, REALLY good chance of getting the job. It is in Detroit, but I'd only need to be there several days a week, and not for real long hours at any time, I'd do most of the grading from home, and I'd only have to work 9 months out of the year. All that and it pays better than a lot of the law firm jobs I've been applying to, though still not as well as I'd be paid if I stayed in the court. In any event, I feel much better about my job prospects.

This weekend is shaping up to be really, really busy. Saturday I've got to bust my butt wrapping Xmas presants for a party at a friend's house, which takes place Saturday evening. LOTS of prezzies to wrap. Also have to wrap presents for my family's Xmas celebration (delayed because I was in CA on Xmas), which will take place on Sunday. Lots more prezzies to wrap. And I think that the first gymnastics meet of the season (U. of Michigan) may be Friday night. All three things are in Ann Arbor, 1 1/2 hours drive from my house. Busy, busy, busy... When am I gonna find time to play with my rp girls?

I'm so glad your brother-in-law went to the counselling session with your sister. Whether they try to work out their marriage or just have support in all the difficulties of separating, I'm glad they'll have that help.

Good luck with the job in Detroit! That sounds promising.

We'll play when you can. It's looking like it will be a busy weekend for me as well, but I'll be around in the evenings.

Do The Scorpions sing that "rock you like a hurricane" song?

Yes, they do. And "Winds of Change" which was very, very popular in early nineties when the Berlin Wall came down. I adore the Scorpions. Just rediscovered them a couple of months ago. They're definitely an 80's "hair band" in a lot of ways. But their music is very fun.

A ha. I knew that was them. I used to have an old Green Day concert where Billie was joking around and he played the riff to that song, and then said "I'm gonna rock you like a hurricane, baby." Needless to say, the little teen Megslet almost fell off her chair. lasfjdlhgsg
