make believe

So yesterday, after two days of nasty illness involving two barfs and eating only one grilled cheese sandwich and two servings of jello in an entire 48 hour period, I pulled myself together and went to this hilarious trial advocacy competition at the law school, where my new friend Kelly and I represented a fake bar in a fake case about fake people, asking questions based on fake facts and yelling serious, primetime television favorites such as "objection!" and "**** off!" from time to time.

The funniest part, besides busting out a nasty old mission blazer and trying to pretend it made me look like a lawyer instead of an 80's rockstar, was that I definitely talked current/permanent roommate Andrew and former roommate Rachel into being witnesses, and both shone like stars. Andrew made an excellent, hot and trustworthy bartender and didn't mess around when being cross-examined, and Rachel sassified life as an accident reconstruction expert, including multiple sighs and suspicious "okaaaaaaaayyyyyyyyy"s when the opposing side asked her nonsensical questions.

Moral of the story: shoulder pads bring power, and I know some of the coolest people on earth.

In true HAGS form I will assume that because you are sick it must mean you are prego-So... Congrats :)

Correction: when i say "shoulder pads" i don't ACTUALLY mean serious 80s beasts; i'm talking like the itty bitty shoulder pads that come in women's suit jackets and are just big enough to remind you that you're wearing a blazer not a cardigan. flattering? no. but better than the 80s/early 90s? at least, i tell myself yes.
