Top O' the Muffin to You!

I learned a new word recently: muffintop. According to the Urban Dictionary, muffintop is defined as:

"the effect of a fat girl wearing jeans tight enough to make the fat around her waist spill over the top of her jeans; usually noticed because the offender's clothing reveals their midriff; e.g. usage: Don't look, but there is muffintop behind you on the esclator."

In my experience, the muffintop phenomenon is not limited to just "fat" girls showing bare skin; rather, women of fairly normal proportions can inadvertently sport muffintop whilst sitting down or wearing inappropriate attire, especially low-rise jeans and form-fitting (not necessary tight) shirts.

Personally, I try to eradicate muffintop early the morning by stopping in front of a full-length mirror to check for its obvious and noticeable presence. Some days, I think my efforts are in vain, as today at work while sitting in a meeting, I realized I had my pants jacked up to my bra to avoid muffintop.

I wish other people worried about muffintop as much as I do.

Real Estate Porn

Driving through Lincoln in the Country Club (old money) neighborhood, I noticed a house for sale by none other than Bill Porn. What an unfortunate last name.

This first full day of Spring brought with it a lovely springtime thunderstorm! So nice.

Miss Uh Lane E

Sorry, it's been awhile. Haven't had much to say. Thirteen days after my last post, Lincoln experienced a record high temperature of 80 degrees! I hope that means Spring is here to stay.

I donated blood today. It had been 6 or 7 years since my last donation, so I was a little apprehensive about the whole thing. The worse thing that happened was that I may have inadvertently flashed my panties to the guy sitting in the chair across from me (note to self: wear pants next time). The minimal discomfort was totally worth it - I know for a FACT that I have made a positive difference in someone's (and their family's) life today. If you are able, I really encourage you to take one hour every 56 days to donate.

I found two wheat pennies in my billfold this evening - both were from 1945! According to one website I found, they are worth twice their face value! Early retirement, here I come!

My good friend and law classmate B is practicing in a small town in central Nebraska, and I must share this anecdote he posted on my MySpace page:

"I just got off the phone with someone who told me that he was upset that the McDonald's in Broken Bow would not let him ride his horses through the drive-through and he wanted to know what his legal options were."

This is exactly the reason why I went to law school.

Snow Day!

Yep, that's right, a blizzard has forced us indoors, as both my work and the University are closed today. While I know I should take advantage of this "get out of jail free" card by getting an early start on the weekend's housecleaning, or catching up on email, or even doing a little work from home, my day will likely involve watching All My Children, reading a book, trying to avoid the chocolate I purchased for my at-work candy dish, and intermittent napping. For the record, I did shower before noon.
