Wine
Icewine: Any, really. I love icewine.

Firelands Winery in Sandusky, OH, makes a great Vidal ice wine.  $30 for 375 ml.  And the pretty blue bottle makes a nice flower vase, too.   :)

I tried a Cabernet Franc ice wine a couple years ago from Inniskilin (sp?) Winery in Niagara-on-the-Lake.  Absolutely excellent!  Smooth, good mouth feel, and something different from all of the white ice wines.

how many layers does it take to stay warm?

Unbelievable...my eyes are so blurry from studying that I thought this said "lawyers" and that it was a joke!   :D

A prayer for success

Almighty God, whose hands hold all matters of life, give us grace of success in the work that we do. Help us to give it the careful thought and the strict attention that will lead to success.
Watch over us and govern our actions, that we may not mar its perfection. Show us how to give our best, and let us not despise the toil that is necessary to complete it.

Make our life a successful one, in that every duty you give to us, we do it well. Give us the blessing of your help and guidance, and suffer us not to fail.

In Jesus' name.

Amen.

Good luck in your test!!!!


I am not a particularly religious person, but I take great comfort in this.  I have been studying as hard as I can between work, MPA classes at U. of Akron, and household duties.  I feel unsure of my readiness but want to take the test so I can move on with my life.

I will do my best and will not fail.  Thanks for the prayer.  Now all I need is my lucky Heidelberg cap (and my admission ticket) and I'll be good to go!

It's not supposed to get above 0 this weekend. Yesterday, 3pm had a windchill of -20, and that was BEFORE it got really cold.

I hate minnesota sometimes

Cold builds character.   ;D

I knew I couldn't say that with a straight face.  CRIPES!!!  It's frickin' cold here in Ohio, too.  Temps predicted to go below zero, with a wind chill making them approach -30F for Sunday.  Now THAT'S "tit-nipply" cold.

Walk it by me and I'll carve off a piece.

Ooh, that doesn't sound right...

How 'bout "still mooing?"
rugercaptain

Damn, that doesn't sound right, either.  Let's see...wave it over a hot grill for a little radiant heat.

Still twitchin' is the only correct response.
Extra-rare. This should be a poll!

it just might be the other way around.

being a vocab whore is necessary to having a good rc score?

Necessary but not sufficient.

My TO "BRING" LIST


-- TIMER
-- Extra Pencils
-- sweater in case it's cold, tank top underneathe incase i get hot
-- ID
-- Admissions Ticket
-- banana and granola bar for extra boost of energy during the 10min. break
-- my mind and everything i've learned about the LSATs

FWIW, Under Armour Cold Gear (the compression-fit style garment) helps me stay warm while deer hunting in cold weather--it wicks sweat away from my skin to the outside of the garment, thereby preventing that clammy/cold feeling during long sits on stand.  I figure it'll be useful during the test because I'll probably be sweating up a storm!  And sitting in what may be a cold room (according to my admission ticket) won't help matters.  

I may wear a ball cap, too, to keep my body heat from escaping--IIRC, 30% of the body's heat loss is through the head.

A little slice of leftover venison meatloaf, a dollop of smashed redskin potatoes, salad, water.  Then off to library for more LSAT studying.

The best part...top songs the year of my birth are some of my all time favs...(get ready, I'm a non-trad!)
My Sharona by The Knack   
Da Ya Think I'm Sexy? by Rod Stewart   
Hot Stuff by Donna Summer

Uh, those songs were popular the year I graduated from high school.  Dang, I'm ready for AARP.   :o
