December 12 of 12 v.2.0

Okay, so I have been totally lax in completing Chad Darnell's fabulous idea...this month, I at least remembered to bring my camera. It is only 11 pictures...but it's better than none.

5:56 a.m. It's too freakin' early!

7:45ish Catching up with the world on Today!

8:10 a.m. The morning drive on Route 33!

8:32 a.m. Running a little late for my chiro appointment. Gotta love the e-stim therapy!

9:30 a.m. The breakfast of champions!

10:15 a.m. The underlying picture was actually taken last Friday at the Fremont Street Experience in Las Vegas, NV. ;-)

1:15 p.m. Working on the brief that is due Friday.

2:00 p.m. One of my best friends, Jacqui, stopped by the office after her eye doctor appointment.

2:30 p.m. Arriving at the Academy for our cadet class presentation.

2:45 p.m. It's G Allen!

5:30 p.m. Picking up a couple of pizzas for my Wednesday night Business Law Class. It was the last one so I thought I'd treat them.

And that's the 11!

Writers on Strike

I fully support the Writers Guild of America (WGA) strike. It's not just about the writers. It strikes (no pun intended) at the very heart of the American work force. People deserved to be compensated fairly for work produced. The entire argument over "new media" is slapped in the face every time the networks put one of their shows on their site for viewing. DVD sales have made it possible for the words written to live in perpetuity.

It's what's fair.

September 12 of 12 v 2.0

Here it is! Another 12 of 12 courtesy of Chad Darnell. This month's was extra special as it my friend Christin's birthday today and I and a couple other friends thought of a special way to include her in our 12 of 12 this month!

4:25 a.m. It's too early for this!
5:25 a.m. Grabbing the gym bag to head out the door. I had a 7:30 a.m. meeting at my old law school, so I worked out at the downtown World's.
9:30 a.m. The agenda and some notes I jotted down during the meeting.
6:10 p.m. Driving through the ATM to deposit a couple of checks and make a teeny withdrawal :D
6:17 p.m. Kanye West's "Stronger" on XM's 20 on 20.
6:20 p.m. Driving past Bob McDorman Corvette World...or whatever it's called.
6:30 p.m. Arriving at the Store that Must Not Be Named to purchase Season 3 of Grey's Anatomy for $33! and a little something for the aforementioned Christin. ^_^
6:50 p.m. Started the car to find out that I am down to 10% oil life. Good thing I have the service scheduled for Monday!
7:00 p.m. Driving through Starbucks to get some caffeine. I've had a dull headache most of the afternoon and I thought it might have been due to a lack of caffeine. Only had a small cup at this morning's meeting.
7:15 p.m. If you look closely, you'll see a hot air balloon!
7:20 p.m. The aforementioned caffeine! A grande non-fat vanilla latte sub sugar free vanilla and add one pump sugar free caramel. Yes, I have become a Starbucks yuppie...
7:45 p.m. Settling down to watch TNT's "The Closer" with the fabulous Kyra Sedgwyck!
Bonus Picture! This month's theme was "Unexpected" and this picture will be unexpected to Christin. Kerri, Helenand I conspired to surprise her with a little birthday cheer! Happy Birthday Christin! I'm so glad we've become friends!
