The following are questions that came up for me today:

1. Why, in a crowded courtroom full of litigants would you call a seat? I came into Motions court today and sat down at the first open seat I saw. There was no handbag, briefcase, file, jacket, sweater, nametag etc . . .etc . . . sitting on the seat. there was a folder on the empty seat to the left. I sat down. A man comes flying over to me and says "I was sitting there." It was his file in the empty seat to the left. Was I supposed to know this? Was I wearing a clairvoyant sign today?

2. Is it possible to both love and hate someone at the same time?

3. Is it possible to daydream about a different life and not affect the outcome of the present one?

4. Is it just me or is this phrase: "sinfully pleasurable schadenfreude" the best phrase ever? I use it whenever I can. I think I like it because no one here in my office has the slightest idea of which I speak.

5. Is it strange that the following words have entered my vocabulary and are now firmly parked within it? geekstacy, geekgasm, awesomesauce, win, fail, epic, OMG, LOL, and STFU?

6. Can you be a true fan of the Holy Grail and not know from whence the phrase "huge tracts of land" comes? I think not.

These are just some of the questions that go through my mind. Now . . . what should I have for dinner?

1. more ribs
2. something Italian
3. something Asian
4. cake

Feel free to talk amongst yourselves.

To offer some clarity, I am NOT Italian.

1. Because he is a jerk.
2. Yes. I do it all the time. There is a very (VERY) thin line between love and hate.
3. No. The wish of the other life becomes so strong, you will either a) do what it takes to get it or b) make you more miserable in your current life. (I know this)
4. I like the phrase.....I would call it a 'double positive' !!!
5. Strange,, yes.

And I like the pie too...more pie!

#1 - "Oh, I'm sorry, hope it didn't hurt too much when I sat on you"... Hope you didn't move!
