Merry Christmas!

Merry Christmas to all (maybe) seven of my readers! (And anyone who may be reading that I don't know about.)

I'll post the stories from the rest of finals after the holiday.

Happy Holidays!
(And happy Christmahannakwanzaadanstice, too.)

One down, two (and a half) to go...

Just got out of my contracts final. The passages have been rited (rites have been passaged?) it went a lot better than I thought it would and I'm not dead yet, etc.

Now excuse me, but I have to go celebrate with ice cream.

A call for help in Washington

To all (maybe) seven of my readers:

I received this email from a blogging friend today and surfaced from the pile of papers that is cramming for finals to pass it along:

Hello my lovely bloggy friends,

I spent the day yesterday helping dig people out of the mud and flood waters of Western Washington. Hundreds of homes have been damaged or destroyed and there is a HUGE need for help and donations as many of the families have lost everything. I’m need help spreading the word out about the relief efforts. I just posted a request for help on Daring Young Mom and Seattle Mom Blogs and I’d be so grateful if you’d send your readers my way. I don’t normally ask for this kind of help but I’m collecting as many donations of goods as I can locally and it’s just not enough. I think that if we work together, we can really make a difference in these people’s lives. Thanks for taking the time to read this and if you’re interested in helping, please take a minute to read my post.



Please take a moment to read her post for more information about the problem and for links to donate (including links to the American Red Cross and LDS Humanitarian services). If you could spread the word on your own blogs as well that would be great (although obviously you don't have to if you're not comfortable with that; I won't be offended).

Thank you for your support!

P.S. On a sort of related but less drastic note, Shallow Man and I could also really use your prayers right now and through the next two weeks as we're getting ready for and taking law school finals. (And in return I promise some sort of real update as soon as finals are done.) Thank you and we love you all.
