Break Out The Smarties & Champagne!
This has been the longest 45 hours ever. Like, longer than a British film about rich people living in the countryside with servants. Longer than a flight from Korea to Washington, D.C. with 5-month-old twins. Longer than, oh, OK, get to it.
Brian passed the New York bar exam. Like as in passed.
I feel like running around to random people and saying, “Isn’t my husband so smart?”
We found out unofficially on Thursday at about four and didn’t get the official letter until just now. Finding out was torture because when I found out I was in the car with Evan and couldn’t go look online and then once I got home to see for myself I couldn’t even tell Brian because he was on lock-down in this conference he was at and so even though I called him every 2.3 minutes between 4:00 and 5:20, it just kept going straight to voicemail.
Thank god Brian just got a blackberry on Wednesday. “Thank god” and “Brian got a blackberry” are phrases I never thought I would utter together but this was serious because I remembered I could email him. I tried to find a good mix between urgent but not panicky for my subject line (CALL ME NOW meets Hey, If you get a chance) and he got it and stepped out of his thing and called me and I told him and it was freaking awesome.
Then Evan and I continued our dance party until he went to bed and all I wanted to do was put it on the blog but they emphasize up and down on the website that this isn’t official and sometimes there are mistakes and ohdeargod. pleasepleaseplease. don’tbewrong.
Well, it’s not wrong. In fact, it’s RIGHT.
Our good friends are watching Evan so that we can celebrate tonight. WHEEEEEEE!
Yes, actual smarties were eaten in the making of this post. PETS (People for the Ethical Treatment of Smarties) have been notified and the decision has been made: it is ethical to eat smarties since they are candies. In fact, it is unethical to let smarties sit on your desk uneaten.
