Californicated born & raised Husker (aka Nebraskan, for those not football-savvy). Liberal high-heeled feminist. Political nerd. Boxer for Senate volunteer. Former ACLU intern. Attorney. Librarian. Professor. Newbie Buddhist. No tolerance for ignorance, stupidity, hatred...or Republicans. I fangirl Mary McDonnell, Tina Fey, Allison Janney, Amy Poehler, and many others. I love Battlestar Galactica, West Wing, MAJOR CRIMES, The Newsroom, Sons of Anarchy, Downton Abbey, The Walking Dead, 30 Rock, Parks & Rec, Scandal, The Wire... Clearly I watch way more TV than is appropriate. Welcome to my odd mixture of fangirling and ultra-liberal politics, with a dash of zen.
So I’m going out to dinner with a group of friends, including one particularly noteworthy former friend, whom I haven’t seen in a year and a half. Long story short: best case scenario = most painfully awkward dinner in all of history. Worst case scenario = aforementioned fatalities.
The universe’s lesson for me today seems to be “Learn how to walk into a room and NOT punch the bitch in the face. No matter how much you want to.”
