Friday Spies

I guess I had better post this before it is no longer Friday.

1. Have you ever been in a car wreck?

Yes I have. A few times. I rear ended a guy one time. While it was technically my fault, the guy was a total douchebag. There used to be an intersection by my house that was constatnly the cause of accidents. The way I was going through it, I had to yeild to cars that were coming off the highway. This guy in front of me started to go, so I turned to see if there were any cars coming, but I kept going forward a little bit. Well, apparently he decided not to go after all, because while I was still looking over my shoulder, I ran into him. The funniest part about it was that he had a big old van and I had an '86 Escort and he got a huge dent in his bumper and I didn't have a scratch.

Another time I was pulling out of an alley at SLU and it was one of those times where you couldn't really see the traffic coming because of all the cars parked on the street. I thought I was clear but as soon as I pulled out there was a bitchin' Camaro right on top of me. This was when I was driving my truck, and he hit me right in the left front wheel. It didn't seem too bad, but when we stopped to get out and exchange info, the way we were parked kept me from being able to look at my truck from the front. When I got home and finally looked at it, I noticed the wheel that he hit was slanted inward. A lot. Like, $700 worth.

The last (and most embarassing) one happened when I was leaving a coffee shop after a long day at work. I got in my truck and backed out or my parking spot without even looking. Unfortunately, I should have looked, since there was a car parked behind me. This one was the worst damage wise, at least for the other person. My truck had an off road package so it sat up pretty high, and the other car was a little Honda, so I ended up hitting it right at the top of the door, totally destroying the door and shattering the driver's side window. And it was raining out that night. Must have been a fun ride home for her.

2. Sunrise or sunset?

I am going to have to disagree with most of the other people who answered this and say sunrise. I'll admit that sunset is pretty good, but sunrise is better in my book. There is just a peacafulness about sunrise that I love. Even when I used to have to work at 6 am on the weekends, I didn't mind because there was nothing to do that early so you could just sit outside and watch the sunrise. This is really going to illustrate the redneck in me, but I love fishing at sunrise. Sitting on a dock looking out over a huge lake that is perfectly still, watching the sun come up and hearing the birds chirp with a cup of coffee and a line in the water is great. Then it starts getting hot and the fish aren't biting and you get bored and start to realize that fishing sucks and you wasted your whole weekend going to some god forsaken lake somwhere. But I digress.

3. If you could change, amend, delete or pass one law, what would it be?

it is 11:38 on a Friday night one month before the end of my first year of law school. No offense guys, but this question sucks. The best I can come up with is that I would get rid of the law that says that they can't sell liquor in DC on Sundays.

4. What is your favorite single article of clothing?

Although it makes me sound like such a woman to say this, I have way too much clothes to pick out one item. I guess two things that I really like are a pair of pajama pants from the Gap that are incredibly soft and comfortable and a Polo sweatshirt that I have had for years and that is so worn out it is the most comfortable thing ever. I have gone entire weekends without even taking these two things off. They are great for sitting around and being lazy.

5.If you could/had to spend the day hanging out with another blogger (one you don't already know), who would it be and what would you do?

This is a tough one. There are a lot of people who I read that I would love to meet. If I had to pick one, I guess it would be Legally Intoxicated - he is the first person I really read on a regular basis and I think we would have a good time, although if either of us wanted to blog about it, we might need to bring along a scribe. Based on some of his stories, I think we might have a hard time remembering what we did.
