Oh yes she did.

I don't want a lot for Christmas
There's just one thing I need
I don't care about the presents
Underneath the Christmas tree
I just want you for my own
More than you could ever know
Make my wish come true
All I want for Christmas is... You
Mariah Carey-All I Want for Christmas

Ladies and ladies, today's post will be a little jumbled. As I have many things to discuss, I'll try to keep this organized and to the point. The last statement I make no guarantees because I happen to like what I say. But I digress...

Law School
I haven't talked about this subject a whole lot as I tend to get nervous when I put it out there that I am going for something. I don't want to draw up a bunch of hype and then my plan fall through, but this is too important not to say something. I want to be a lawyer people...well I want to be an attorney I should say. Attorneys call each other attorneys. People call attorneys, lawyers. And if I'm going to be one, I should start acting like one. Anyway, I really could use some extra prayers.
I am taking the LSAT on December 6th and am VERY nervous about it. My application process hinges on how well I do on this portion. I know that is a lot of pressure to put on one day, but I think I can handle it. I've been through a wedding okay. So be in prayer that everything goes well that day.
I am applying to 6 law schools. Count 'em. Six.
The University of Oklahoma
The University of Tulsa
The University of Arkansas at Little Rock
The University of Arkansas at Fayetteville
The University of California in Los Angeles
The University of Nevada in Las Vegas
So I can definitely use some prayer for those schools as well. I will probably be doing a post about them tomorrow. Tune in lata' for more details.

OU/Texas Weekend
I have decided that no OU alum/student should be in class or at work on this Friday. It is a solemn tradition for those serious about their academics. As a result, I will not be at work on Friday. Happy weekend to me.

Presidential Debate
Tonight is the second of three presidential debates. It is Town Hall Meeting style. Tom Brokaw will be the moderator. I will be the viewer.

Side note: Most people are down right disgusted with the election at this point. I on the other hand, am in love.

Sarah Palin Skits
As you know, SNL has been putting out quite the material lately. Of course she seems to help them out too.

Christmas Music
I am listening to Christmas music. I don't care about the scoffs that are coming out of some of your mouths at this time.

I do not, have not and never will like Halloween.

It is lame.

So in protest, I start listening to Christmas music about this time every year. I love leaves, pumpkins, pilgrims, a good white hot chocolate with caramel drizzle, October baseball, football weather, changing leaves and turkey. Those are part of a season. Some of us like to call it fall. But I do not love spiders and snakes. They are disgusting and seem to appear quite regularly around this time of the year. Therefore you cannot convince me to love Halloween. I know I love vampires (Edward Cullen for example) and witches (Elphaba and Glinda for sure) but you are in a sad state if that is the only argument you have for why I should like Halloween. They are people who exist year-round, but good try. K, thanks.
And in honor of the fact that I have been talking about things that I wish for i.e. law school, I have posted the aforementioned song. Thank you and have a good day.

And for those who are struggling with their lot in life recently, here's a little somethin' somethin' for you....

''The will of God will never take you where the grace of God will not protect you.''

Peace motha' chuckers.

i DO need to visit the Quah. When I have a free weekend, I will let you know!

Halloween is WONDERFUL. You get to pretend. You can be anything you want for one day. There is candy galore and nighttime fun. I love Halloween and am celebrating in full force this year.

Thanks for posting the links, maverick. ;)

motha chuckers. you're turning into a blair before my eyes.

law school: consider it in my prayers. (as if it wasn't already.)

ou/tx: i wish your plan could work for me. =(

presidential debate: here's another link for you... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=65I0HNvTDH4

christmas music: i applaud your christmas spirit. see my post for my own.

i agree, halloween is not my favorite either. here is my logic: i don't like to dress like a skank, so there's no point in going to grown-up (ahem, adult) halloween things. also, the freaks sure do come out. plus, i'm not a big fan of candy.

i am, however, a big fan of you.

Thanks for the sweet comment. I have always enjoyed writing, I dont know why, just do!
I also have listened to a bit of christmas music lately. I just love it so much!
Did you know Halloween is Luke's favorite time of the year? He is strange!
You will be in our parayers during law school test time!! Don't stress too much!

I'm listening to Halloween themed music and planning a pumpkin carving party.

Just because we are at adult-age, doesn't mean the only costume choice is "skank". My friends and I are going as a peacock, mailman, and Paul Stanley from KISS.

Dressing up as something other than yourself is like acting and that is lots of fun.

There are some great Halloween movies.


Yes, it's freaky and weird. But maybe because I'm freaky and weird, I love it.

So I'm going to make some tasty treats, eat the candy, wear costumes and celebrate this awesome holiday!
