So my aunt called, asking if she can stay at my place during the storm because there's no chance of flooding where I live. I'm not evil enough to say no, but my cousin is a total ****ing slob and I'm already on edge imagining the disaster I'll find when I get home--and I'm not a neat freak by any means, that's how bad she is. If it's as bad as I fear, someone's going to cry, and it isn't going to be me.

At least the day wasn't a total washout. We went on a Dorchester run and I got another chicken banh mi, plus a banh mi from Chau Bakery. Now, Chau doesn't have the best fillings, but my god their bread is glorious. The other places have good bread which they bake themselves as well, but wow Chau Bakery's bread made them look like a joke! THAT BREAD!
And we got pho. ****ing awesome pho. Though how can anyone ever actually finish a bowl of pho? IT IS IMPOSSIBLE!
I also got some vermicelli with grilled beef, because I love me some vermicelli. Soooo good! Though I'm probably the only person who wishes there were less beef and more vermicelli!

I read this quote by former Senator Barry Goldwater, who also ran in the 1964 Presidential Election as the Republican party's nominee:

"Mark my word, if and when these preachers get control of the [Republican] party, and they're sure trying to do so, it's going to be a terrible damn problem. Frankly, these people frighten me. Politics and governing demand compromise. But these Christians believe they are acting in the name of God, so they can't and won't compromise. I know, I've tried to deal with them." (1994)

I read a bit more on him, and it is very interesting to see, from a historical standpoint, what he had to say about Christians making a move on the conservatives of the Republican Party. The earliest quotes I can find are from the early 80s.

It makes me wonder what the Republican Party would look like today with the absence of religious input.

I'm going to flip out at any moment. 3 days without water, evil period from hell, I had to stand in my tub and dump gallon jugs of cold water over me to shower today because I didn't have time to heat up water before work. Why? Because we might get snow tonight and I had to pack in case I cant get home for the next two days. Every forecast says something different from no snow to 6 inches over the next 2 days because they are all effing morons. If I cant get home then it might be 3 or 4 more days before the well company can make it up my mountain to work on the water... I want to scream.

I am keeping my fingers crossed and hoping that we get little to no snow tonight and that they can work on the well tomorrow.

Was just sitting here crying over Oprah's "Where Are They Now" on Mary Jo Buttafuocco.

And that's what we call PMS.

I love this photo of all these people I don't know gushing over baby photos.

Drew's husband looks so cute and proud!

And Jen's fiance is aDORable.

I'm still smarting over that. There wasn't much I could have done and I did tell them that, but you always hope, and you always feel like you somehow failed.
My son works as a public defender and some of the cases he represents are simply heartbreaking. The very first one involved the mother accused of of torturing and abusing her 3 year old son to death (known as Baby Lollipops, for those of you living in Miami-Dade). He was so torn between compassion for the innocent child and his professional obligation to zealously advocate for his client, he nearly reconsidered his career choice. And it's no easier when the accused is innocent but has the deck stacked against him because of who he is.

Sometimes I wish he'd taken a job with a high-paying corporate firms like his classmates did, but then I know his work wouldn't be so gratifying.
Wow - that's weird to have that as your first case. I am junior so I only take Category "C" offences as Legal Aid classes them - nothing causing death or serious bodily harm. I have impaired driving, assault, domestic assault, various breaches of court orders, uttering threats, that kind of thing. I'm probably going to start taking certain Category "B" after Christmas - the more serious assaults, sexual assaults, break and enter and home invasions, etc. I won't get to Category "A" - murders, aggravated sexual assaults etc, or the majority of Category "B", for some time. I don't feel professionally or mentally/emotionally prepared for murders, torture, rape etc. just yet.

I can't imagine working with a high-paid corporate firm. It's a good choice for some, but I would find it soul-sucking.
I should have specified that it was the first case he worked on. He wasn't even a lawyer at the time, just an intern in the Miami public defender's office the summer after 1L. The defendant had already been convicted and sentenced to life in prison, but the prosecutor was (successfully) petitioning the court to amend the sentence to the death penalty.

On the positive side, the experience severely tested his resolve to pursue that career, so at least I know he's fully cognizant of what lies ahead.

He feels the same way about the corporate route, but there's something to be said for paying off the law school loans in 3 years, and then choosing public interest law.
