Off to Miami tomorrow for some wedding planning and sunshine. I was going to post a very happy little blurb about it all but then I made the mistake of looking at the news and seeing that S. Dakota passed that abortion ban. So now I am rather gulm as I sit here shaking my head about our country.

More horrifying....

Ok. I know this makes the second truly sad post in a row but I can't resist pointing out the similarities between this guy and the husband of a friend who shall remain nameless. The husband, however, can be spotted a mile away by his tendency to attack tuna cans and make waitresses cry.

From the Smoking Gun.....

Sicko "Marriage Contract" One For The Ages

Repulsive "Wifely Expectations" pact emerges in Iowa kidnap case

FEBRUARY 17--This country, as you know, is filled with the deranged. And then there's Travis Frey, a 33-year-old Iowa man who is facing charges that he tried to kidnap his own wife (not to mention a separate child pornography rap). Frey, prosecutors contend, apparently is a rather demanding guy. In fact, he actually drew up a bizarre four-page marriage document--a "Contract of Wifely Expectations"--that sought to establish guidelines for his spouse in terms of hygiene, clothing, and sexual activities. In return for fulfilling certain requirements, Frey (pictured right) offered "Good Behavior Days," or GBDs. Each GBD, Frey wrote, could be redeemed by his wife to "get out of doing the things" he requested daily. A copy of the proposed contract, which Frey's wife never signed and later provided to cops, can be found below. While we normally point out the highlights of most documents, there are so many in this demented, and very graphic, contract, we really can't do it justice. So set aside ten minutes--and prepare to be repulsed.

The entire 4 page contract can be seen here.

Cheney shoots man....

He did. He really shot someone. Oh man. He's like that crazy millionaire in The Most Dangerous Game.

Snow Pics

Things I learned today:

Emerson does not like having snowballs thrown at him.
Michelle should be here to make a snowman with me.
Playing in the snow alone is no fun.
Law students are also no fun.

Body Worlds

This Friday I picked up Chantelle in Baltimore and drove us up to Philly, only getting horribly lost once! On Saturday Valeska, Chantelle, and I went to see the Body Worlds exhibit at the Franklin Institute. Josh had interviews so he couldn't come. Plus, I think he was not so thrilled with the idea of looking at real human bodies. I can see how the concept might leave people with an icky feeling but I thought it was pretty cool. Initially I thought that looking at the inner workings of the human body would make me super aware of my own mortality and freak me out. But after the exhibit I didn't feel that way at all. The most interesting part was the pregnant woman's body. Unfortunetly that section of the exhibit was really poorly designed and the line was super long to see it.

On Sunday I got back in time to go to Erin's boyfriend's superbowl party only to find the apartment in dire need of cleaning and the fridge empty becuase Josh ended up being overwhelmed with work. So we ended up having to call Erin and cancel and we cleaned and shopped for groceries intead of watching the superbowl. I guess that was the universe's way of punishing me for having a fun weekend.

First frittata I ever made that didn't fall apart when I flipped it. So beautiful I think I might cry.
