There Will Be Blood

I got new Mizuno Wave Inspire 4’s (running shoes) with my tax rebate. A congenial blonde Polish salesman who was about 6’11 and 110 lbs helped me pick them out at a running store. He looked fast. He elected to show me several good running stretches. Some of them were bit awkward to watch. But watch I did. In a strange twist, I actually asked to see more.
                      I also got Franz Kafka’s “The Metamorphosis and Other Stories” from the library. I haven’t read it yet. I’m coming up with a list of books to read.  I’ll probably post it on here in a few days, if I get bored. I watched the Squid and the Whale tonight and I may move on to Blood Diamond (which I’ve never seen).
                        In other news, I had an interview at a big law firm today. I think I got the job, but I should find out in a few days. I’m not going to lie, I was pretty nervous for the interview. Some standard awkward questions were asked: “What’s your greatest weakness?” and “Have you ever fired a friend?” (What..?!)
                        I’ll decline to comment on the politics as of late. I have four words for you: THE END IS NIGH. …..    Or another four words, as the Newsweek on my mother’s buffet so delicately put the state of the Republican party, : THERE WILL  BE BLOOD
   

                    may I suggest: Cotton Candy Bubble Yum. How good? Pretty darn. But I do have one question…. There is an androgynous, anthropomorphic duck on the package of Bubble Yum. He/She/It has spiked pink hair, a nose/beak ring, and a spiked collar. Who is this duck? And what went wrong?

  1. Rachel, thanks for the comment. That’s very nice of you to say. I hope something good comes of that interview. I don’t believe I’ve ever been asked the “Have you ever fired a friend?” question, but it does say something about the employer who is asking it.

    I’ll keep you posted on operation: law school.
