My husband knows Chinese

...sort of. We're working on having him remember more useful words beyond those in the vocabulary bank of a hoodlum infant. But it's a start.

Our current conversation:

RD what's pin yin?
LL that's the new chinese short hand where you write chinese words phonetically

Three's Company

This is the new addition to our little family -- David Hasselhoff. Part Weimaraner, part Lab.

A day in Hasselhoff's life goes something like this (the process starts at 2 in the morning):

bathroom...sleep...bathroom...sleep on on couch...sleep in tricks for demanding humans carrying tasty where he's not supposed to

Ta Daaaaaa!

A bit late on the posting, but here it is! More pictures to be posted on flickr. Since the wedding day, we've been busy. Trip to Dubrovnik was great! Packing up the Houston homestead was sad, but so far things are pretty good over in Nashville.

I'm currently eating the perfect sandwich. At least in my book. Slices of turkey (the lunchmeat variety--could be improved upon if it were slices of turkey breast carved from the bone), a generous helping of bacon, half an avocado, tomatoes, red onion, lettuce, and mustard smeared on whole wheat bread. Thank you, Central Market!

Because I took the time to look it up

Remember that old Taco Bell song?

I'm just a guy, just a man, just a dude and I'm hun-gryyyyy
And I'm moving real fast 'cause I'm going first class for a steak at Taco Bell.

Jonesin' for
A grilled steak taco
Steak's the king of meats

So I run and I walk 'cause I can't find my horse to ride there
Gotta shimmy, gotta shake for a marinated steak, a steak at Taco Bell.

Grilled steak taco
At Taco Beeeeellllllll! [gong.]

Golf lessons

For the past couple of days, my work assignment has been to read strangers' emails that all somehow relate to golf. Sure, it's tangentially related to an antitrust issue we're working on. And document review is usually one of the suckier jobs young lawyers have to do. But this week, I can't complain. Ask me what a mulligan is, what "country club casual" means, and what a Florida scramble entails. I'm all over this foreign golf language. And I've got a few sexist golf-jokes to boot.
