So, last Thursday, for some reason, all of South East and South Central MN was in love with reading my blog.  And they were all state workers, according to my stat tracker, because they all accessed it from the domain of state.mn.us.  This was oddly enough on the same day that this bill was introduced in the MN Senate, which would permit counties to withdraw from public defender representation for 2 year periods.  This made me slightly suspicious, as I know maybe 1 person who lives in that entire region and that would be it.  So, I'm not sure exactly what the southern portion of the state was doing with my blog, but I didn't like it.

As a result, I removed the last 8 years worth of blog posts, since I had no idea what they were looking for, and I have rebooted the franchise, a la every-new-movie-that-has-come-out-recently (minus the terrible Megan Fox acting).  So, while I will continue to keep blogging, my archives are now inaccessible.  I have not decided what will happen with the new archives, but the old ones have been removed. 

So, I apologize to anyone who had desperately wanted to read about my life from when I was 20 years old (side note--I can't believe I have been blogging for 8 years!), but that's the status.

In other news, I got first pick in my fantasy baseball draft this year.  Last year I was like 2nd to last and that sucked.  But this year, I was first, so that was cool.  I took Albert Pujols since he kills it every year.  I got a decent lineup, including the following players: 

  •  Albert Pujols
  • Victor Martinez
  • Ben Zobrist
  • Jose Bautista
  • Elvis Andrus
  • Juan Pierre
  • Omar Infante
  • Brett Gardner
  • Mike Napoli 
  • Juan Uribe
  • Carlos Pena
  • Austin Jackson
  • Miguel Olivo
  • Alcides Escobar
  • Carl Pavano
  • Jered Weaver
  • Heath Bell
  • Alexi Ogando
  • Matt Capps
  • Anibal Sanchez
  • Jon Rauch
  • Jeremy Guthrie
  • Brian Wilson
So, hopefully I'll do well this year.  Last year I came in third, so I did pretty decently for my first time playing.  

Other than that, things have been pretty much the same.  Life at work is returning to normal again after the massively long trial.  I'm finally mostly caught up on stuff and I am working now on staying on top of things, so I'm no longer behind on everything.  So, that's nice.  This week is a pretty easy week--only 1 court appearance so I have plenty of time to work on stuff and wrap up anything that I might still have that I'm behind on.  So, this week is nice and stress-free.  Which is an exciting and awesome change of pace. 

In other news, I've discovered that "My So Called Life" is now available on Netflix Watch Instantly.  Now that I know about this, I will have to watch it.  It's been soooooo long since Jordan Catalano has been in my life.  That show is the reason I have always had a slight crush on Jared Leto, no matter how unattractive and/or weird he's gotten.  

Okay, that's all for now.  


  1. Being the total creepshow that I am, I actually loved reading your archives, but I totally understand why you got rid of them. Also, thanks for your comment on my blog - I literally almost emailed you before I went to trial to ask for advice on not throwing up on myself, but I got too distracted reading your archives. It's good to know I'm not the only person who wants to throw up on herself in that situation.

    Also your fantasy team looks pretty promising. We should start a female lawyer fantasy league some day.

  2. OH Angela Chase!!!! sigh....
