In the same vein of new things happening with the beginning of law school, here are a couple of other great new things that have happened. Specifically things that are in conjunction with this blog.
1) Obviously, all of you! I’ve never really been a blogger before. At least, I’ve never been a real blogger; I’ve written a couple of little things on a blog that only two of my friends from college ever read. With this blog, however, I’ve gotten to meet a lot of you — all awesome women, all with great perspectives on life and all of whom make me smile and make me think and make me interested in something outside my small life/social circle. From reading about Crystal’s new job to Natalie’s first day of school to The Waspy Redhead’s latest cooking endeavor to Abbey’s gardening to P.S. Jones’ freelance adventures, I’m excited to hear about what you all have done each day, what you’re planning and what you’re dreaming about (sorry – can’t mention every single person, but you’re all brilliant and fun-to-read).
And, when this type of thing bring me into contact with you all in real life, it’s just that much better. Who would’ve thought 10 or 15 years ago that you could actually make friends on the internet who weren’t trying to lure you into a Free Candy Van (my sister’s slang for a pedophile or other creeper)? But, really, it’s so cool. I’ve had the opportunity to meet both OhMyPuddin and MDLikeMe Kate and they are both really interesting women with unique perspectives and interesting lives. Without the internet, it would have been slim odds that we would have met or had the opportunity to get to know each other. Now, with blogging making our worlds smaller, I actually had the opportunity to meet Kate for a margarita and introduce our law students to one another.
2) A bet. Yep, a real life bet. Last Monday, Ducks mentioned to his friend AJ that we met Kate and J because of the blog world. Of course, AJ then clamored to know about the blog. And, I told him that it’s…duh…a Super Secret blog. So, he and I made a bet. If he finds the blog before Labor Day, I owe him a beer. If he is unsuccessful, he has to complete a handyman project at the new house with Ducks. According to him, he has a Super Knowledgable Internet Team on the job 24/7. So, we’ll see how this goes.
Anyway, so those are the new things that are happening. Now, excuse me, while I go talk Torts with my law student — and thanks to everyone for being my blog friends!
***ANNOYING UPDATE: This is why you should never draft posts ahead of time. I wrote this post yesterday so that I could post it this morning. Last night, AJ came over to talk about the first day of school with Ducks. I had made chicken and rice for dinner and while I ran an errand, the boys ate. Here’s how the pre-dinner conversation went:
Ducks: Do you want a plate or a bowl?
AJ: I’ll take a plate. I don’t really like bowls.
Ducks: Really? I like bowls. I almost always use a bowl.
AJ: I know. And, APPARENTLY YOU LEAVE THEM ON THE FLOOR!
So, he found it. He actually enlisted a mutual friend to track it down through people that I’m friends with on my personal Twitter. Which means I’m going to have to develop a special Legally Married Twitter account now…and manage three accounts. Sigh. So, if you have a Twitter account, post your handle in the comments so I can follow you.
And, Law School Wife, you were right about the whole blogger beware – can’t keep secrets on the Internet! 🙂
