Awards on a Friday

Sarah at ratatat wins the Playdough Violin for the constant, teeth clenching annoyingnesses. Pixie sympathy to you (yoga should be zen!), and cluesticks to those who cross you, Sarah.

The Miracle of Life Award is presented to kathy a, celebrating the anniversary of her oldest’s birth! Her story of “trying to finish up one last case before maternity leave, [while] the judge kept calling all the private lawyers so as not to waste their time [and I was] timing contractions” was hysterical. Retrospective Pixie Blessings for her friend – “who was also heavily pregnant at the time – waddl[ing] on up to the bench and [saying], ‘your honor, if you do not call kathy's case, you are going to witness the miracle of life right here in your courtroom.’"

Pixie celebrations for Sue, who doesn’t have a headache. May it last forever!

Bon Voyage to kathy a’s Beloved, who is doing great things “out of radar for your major flight tracking” and Daughter, who is braving unfamiliar roads as she considers a new career.

Esperanza wins Old Skool this week, for the Logic Model Problem of accessing early intervention services. May your driving hither and yon be swift.

The Cluestick Posse is saddling up to visit noisy gum chewers, and those seeking karmic retribution via a nasty version of the telephone game and hearsay and gossip and hurtfulness. 
See you all next week, when To Be Announced will be hosting!

thank you, redzils!

my friend belongs in the Posse Hall of Fame. the judge was a confirmed j@ck@ss. just the week before, he asked me in open court -- in front of maybe 150 people i did and did not know -- about the outcome of a personal confidential gynecological procedure. it was a pleasant surprise when the judge later got tossed off the bench for something involving cocaine and hitting on a law student at a party. karma.
