I love the Shark

Our friend Jay came to visit this weekend and when he heard me raving about my Shark he asked me to post (thus is the life of a new mom– a freaking vacuum is exciting stuff these days…). 

So here it is:  I have a Shark rechargable stick vacuum and I love it.  It is light, recharges quickly, and picks up everything from bits of banana on the kitchen floor to sand on tile to general dirt on carpet.  Very inexpensive at Target. 

My god, I went to one of the best law schools in the country and this is what I do with my days…but you know, who doesn’t have dirt?

Unexpected Loophole

Get a load of this:

Cecelia Fire Thunder, a former nurse who is the first female president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe, said it was “an eye-opener” when legislators approved a law that prohibits abortion in nearly all cases, even when the pregnancy is the product of a rape or incest. The only exception is to save the mother’s life.

“An Indian reservation is a sovereign nation and we’re going to take it as far as we can to exercise our sovereignty,” said Fire Thunder, whose Pine Ridge Reservation encompasses 2.7 million acres in southwestern South Dakota. “As Indian women, we fight many battles. This is just another battle we have to fight.”

Because federally recognized tribes are not, in many cases, required to abide by state law, a clinic could operate lawfully at Pine Ridge even with a ban in place, said South Dakota Attorney General Larry Long.

And you’ll live happily, and contextually, ever after.

I don’t know what happened to Slashdot the past few hours but all the posts headers look like they’ve been written by 14 y/o girls.  Nevermind they started with “OMG!” or even better, “OMG! OMG!! OMG!!!”, when I actually read what they were giddy about, I myself gave a little chuckle and remembered what day it was.  The after reading about the monkey flinging poo with his robotic arm, I came across a post leading me to Google Romance and the Google Romance Tour.  Take time to read the USER B captions for the pictures.  This is much more funny than the other Aprils Fools Pranks they’ve done in the past.  I’ve never been more excited about finding love than the prospect of letting Google get involved.  Here is an excerpt:

Easily amused I guess…  Happy April Fool’s Fools.
