So I'm not in Austin right now. The other side made (another) last minute motion for a continuance, and it was granted. We've been ordered to mediate, but if we do not settle we'll be headed to Texas in January. This ALWAYS happens. People ask me if I'm a trial attorney, and my response is that I would be if anything ever went to trial! Seriously pretty much every single case I've worked on has settled. And really, I don't want to partake in the trial (I just want to watch:). Oh well, the upside is that I took Friday off and enjoyed a leisurely long weekend. Friday was gloomy, but Saturday and Sunday were absolutely glorious. Sunny and cool--the sort of day that must be enjoyed.
I've not thought much about blogging lately. I've pretty much always loved music, but I'm in a particularly intense music phase right now, meaning that there's so much I want to listen to that I'm foregoing working, television, talking, and blogging to do so. Pandora, Ilike, Myspace, and my boss are supporting the habit. My boss brought me a burned CD (Iron & Wine, Thad Cockrell, and Caityln Crosby) on Thursday and suggested that I put itunes on my work laptop, so that we can share music through our network. Gotta love that sort of boss. I'm listening to some of the usuals and have added Matt Nathanson, Augustana, Future of Forestry, and some others to the list too. I ended up with about 7 people at my place Friday night after dinner, and a few of us just ended up around the computer sharing random new artists for hours. I finally went to bed at 4:30. Throw in some dancing on my coffee table to Usher, conversation about Walden, discussion about how you shouldn't let Christians ruin your potential relationship with Christ, and nachos, and it was a fine evening.
Hope your weekend was equally as lovely. Happy Monday!
p.s. I'm grateful for haircuts. They make me feel so clean and fresh, and you can't beat the value of an $11 cut at Great Clips.
