As Rare as Russian Unicorns

I've been feeling a bit overloaded this past month.  6 weeks of working full time and taking night law school classes has been tiring. Luckily, the ladyfriend has been very supportive and even kicked my butt a few times when I needed it. I have the ability to fall asleep in .27931 seconds and she makes sure I don't when I have work to do which has been quite helpful lately. I'd write more about how lucky I am and how awesome she is, but I don't want to embarrass her too much :-)

Generally being tired, studying law, and trying to keep up with current events has led to some very strange dreams when I do get the opportunity to sleep. Just this past evening in fact, I was hanging out with Richard Branson on a 27' sailboat and we were off to race it when we crashed into an island that had Warren Buffett on it. The night before, I did some time-traveling with Dr. Who in the TARDIS.

In light of these strange dreams, I thought I would treat you all to a song this friday that is 3 parts awesome and 1 part weird. It's a bad lip reading video of Michael BublĂ©'s Haven't Met You Yet. Please enjoy:

International Talk Like A Pirate Day is Coming!

So because my first legal memo is due on International Talk Like A Pirate Day (September 19), I think I may have to break my general rule of no going out during the work-week (except Thursdays) and head to the nearest barrrrrrrrrrrrr!

Song for My Audience of One

I was going to put up the video for Los Angeles by The Rosewood Thieves but I found this one and it caught my attention.

So I'm going to put that one up here as the song of the day instead.

Enjoy it.

Or don't.

I don't really care.

Since I put it up for an audience of one.

Red Socks (not Sox) and the AC World Series

I must admit, I've been feeling a bit conflicted lately. I really enjoy having the America's Cup in the US but at the same time, I do hold a special place in my heart for the Kiwis and Team New Zealand. I was in New Zealand when Team New Zealand won the cup (skippered by Russell Coutts and led by Sir Peter Blake) and that was when I really started following the America's Cup.

So even though I love having the Cup in American hands, I must admit, I'm rooting for Emirates Team New Zealand this go-around.

RIP Sir Peter Blake.
