So.... I have an interview with another Court of Appeals judge here in Lansing for a temporary clerkship -- six to twelve weeks -- covering for someone going on maternity leave. I can't see how I could NOT get this one... I'm the only third year research attorney LEFT in the Lansing office, and I can't see someone applying for a temporary position that will require them to drive more than an hour each way every day. So.... interview's next week. I'll let you all know...

I miss my Stevie. I miss my Megs. Life is rough. *curls up in corner*

On the bright side, gave the BV baby food last night for the first time. He's had cereal and formula, but nothing else. So, I tried him with peas. He kept making these horrible, horrible, horrible faces, but kept eating 'em and opening his mouth for more. I laughed myself silly! Was too cute. And last week he learned to roll over by himself. Not bad for a 4 1/2 month old. *proud*

Meme I yoink!ed from Megs: (somebody teach me to LJ cut, please!)

1) Bold what is true about you.
2) Italicize what you wish was true about you.

You want to kiss my egg?melissa2u on September 29th, 2005 01:52 pm (UTC)
Good luck with the job!

I miss her too.

YAY for food! With mine, they'd eat the daylights out of veggies. Fruit was the one thing they didn't care for.

I'll email what you need to type for a cut :)
Megs: AE cuddlythemegs on September 29th, 2005 11:32 pm (UTC)
I miss you like craaaaazy.

Cuts are everyone's friend!!!

I miss you too, girl. I'm getting along pretty well in second shift though - no one even sits near me, so I'm free to stretch out and blast my music and no one bothers me. I'll be around on the weekends, though, and I've this Friday evening free, since I'm working in the morning.

Dawn: toosexy_dysprosiumladylardence on September 29th, 2005 09:39 pm (UTC)
Good luck with the interview, hon! *crosses fingers and toes*
Megs: Megs no goodthemegs on September 29th, 2005 11:32 pm (UTC)
I didn't know you were a twin! That's awesome.

I missed you, too. *snuggles tightly*

To make an lj cut, type this but use the < brackets instead of [

[lj-cut text="lalala whatever"]

You wish you were bisexual?
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on September 29th, 2005 11:52 pm (UTC)
Yes, because most of my closest friends are bisexual, and I'd like to understand the way they see things, see through there eyes more.... and it would be interesting, I think, a different view on life.
Megsthemegs on September 29th, 2005 11:56 pm (UTC)
I don't know how to explain it. I've always been bi. I was very little when I realised that most people were attracted to one gender or the other, and it made no sense to me. I'm usually attracted to a person based on things that are not male or female by nature, such as aspects of their personality, and their eyes and smile. As for the physical...I guess it's like choosing between cake and ice cream. Each is delicious for different reasons.
nosferatuvoicenosferatuvoice on September 30th, 2005 12:00 am (UTC)
Cake and ice cream... that's a nice description. Like I said, I'd like to be just so I understood things better, but I'm also happy the way I am.
Megsthemegs on September 30th, 2005 12:03 am (UTC)
So am I. :) My brother is also bi, and it's funny how we have similar taste.
