I have two kitties... a smaller black cat named Luna who is 6 or 7 years old and my baby, Miette, who is 2 years old and a fatass. Both of them are crazy though. They've taught each other great tricks like shaking the door (if it's closed) and taping my face when I'm sleeping.

So....this might be something everyone else knows already but are the passport photos just for our student ID? I'm debating whether to get a new one done or to just use an old passport photo taken during high school.

I found one sticker really hilarious at the time, similar to the Keep Austin Wierd ones.  It was "Keep Round Rock Mildly Unusual."
I'm fond of the "Keep Dallas Pretentious" satire stickers.

hahaha...that's hilarious.
Is anyone else living in Dallas right now?

I'm a legal assistant for the Center for Science in the Public Interest. It's based in DC, but I work with the Director of Litigation in Dallas. You might have seen us in recent news about KFC (we're sueing them), 7 UP Natural (we want to sue them), and Frito-Lay/Olestra (we just recently got them to put additional labelling about their chips containing olestra).

I guess the reasons I love it are not law-related at all....but I love the variety of research that I get to do - from the effects of advertising on children to HFCS and trans fat. I also like the feeling that the work I am doing is making big corporations like Kelloggs and Cadbury Schweppes change their evil big business ways to improve their products or at least helping consumers make informed decisions about what they are buying/eating.

I'm not sure how big of a salary my boss has but CSPI is a multi-million dollar non-profit so he can't be doing that bad.

Am I the only one interested in working for a non-profit after law school?
I know it doesn't make the big bucks....and that will be hard to turn down...but I work for the litigation department at a non-profit right now and I love it.

You can add one more woman to the list :)
Also an IKEA lover to the extreme.
