Bruce Bogtrotter

I feel like Bruce Bogtrotter right now. Only, I have to finish a 20 page paper, not a huge delicious cake. And, Neil is Ms. Trunchbull calling me to harass me to finish it.

"Being a lawyer had better be AWESOME!"

If you ask me about law school (pretty much any time but the three weeks of finals) I will tell you it is wonderful.

It is finals.

All I can say is…I am away from Neil (who is in UT already)… and, “Being a lawyer had better be AWESOME!”

Feel like listening to me rant for and hour?

You’re in luck!!!

Here’s my Mormon Stories Podcast.

This is a great source of interesting interviews of all kinds of people within Mormonism. It’s really worth a listen to the other interviews too!!

Ah, The Onion… funny 'cause it's true. Funny 'cause it's true.

It’s times like these (when you want to share a funny link and nothing more) that Facebook would really come in handy.

I have not read this book… yet, but from this interview it sounds very, very interesting.

Ain't I a woman?

Sojourner_Truth

Hey team.

Check out a post my friend Ann just did with a list I made about being a woman. If blogs indeed can be beautiful, her blog is it!

Also… I quoted from Sojourner Truth’s famous speech “Ain’t I a woman?” That was one rockin’ lady. Click on her portait above to learn more about her & more Americans Who Tell the Truth.

Sojourner Truth (1797-1883): Ain’t I A Woman?
Delivered 1851
Women’s Convention, Akron, Ohio

Well, children, where there is so much racket there must be something out of kilter. I think that ‘twixt the negroes of the South and the women at the North, all talking about rights, the white men will be in a fix pretty soon. But what’s all this here talking about?

That man over there says that women need to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches, and to have the best place everywhere. Nobody ever helps me into carriages, or over mud-puddles, or gives me any best place! And ain’t I a woman? Look at me! Look at my arm! I have ploughed and planted, and gathered into barns, and no man could head me! And ain’t I a woman? I could work as much and eat as much as a man – when I could get it – and bear the lash as well! And ain’t I a woman? I have borne thirteen children, and seen most all sold off to slavery, and when I cried out with my mother’s grief, none but Jesus heard me! And ain’t I a woman?

Then they talk about this thing in the head; what’s this they call it? [member of audience whispers, "intellect"] That’s it, honey. What’s that got to do with women’s rights or negroes’ rights? If my cup won’t hold but a pint, and yours holds a quart, wouldn’t you be mean not to let me have my little half measure full?

Then that little man in black there, he says women can’t have as much rights as men, ’cause Christ wasn’t a woman! Where did your Christ come from? Where did your Christ come from? From God and a woman! Man had nothing to do with Him.

If the first woman God ever made was strong enough to turn the world upside down all alone, these women together ought to be able to turn it back , and get it right side up again! And now they is asking to do it, the men better let them.

Obliged to you for hearing me, and now old Sojourner ain’t got nothing more to say.

Happy International Women's Day!

HAPPY International Women’s Day!

womenSome of my favorite women!

Kate's Facebook PhotosTrunk full o’ beautiful women in Thailand 2005!

Wedding DinnerThese ladies have had my back since middle school!

4th July!!!Some brave, beautiful friends!

100_3582.JPGThree cheers for women!

She-blogs I like to follow:

Kate's Facebook PhotosI love singing with women! (most especially this childless housewife)

Kate, Jake and Jill at a Freak Show

I love catching a good Freak Show with Jill & reading her hilarious blog.

Tess's weddingOn Tess’s blog you can learn how to dye your own yarn, make your own Ethiopian food and grow your own mushrooms!

Tess's weddingI love reading Sarah THE Vranes‘ insights & adventures.

Trip to see Anne, Lily and JasonAnne blogs about Doula adventures and issues.

photo-4Briana is a midwife. She delivers babies (including my niece June-bug in this shot) at home!

new digi 021Thelma is a rockin’ activist in Thailand and blogs about it here. Ashley is one of the most creative and thoughtful people I know & when she blogs, you can read it here. (btw…this is a shot from a random day of classes at BYU back in the day. It was such a lovely coincidence that we all went for the “rainbow coalition” look that particular day… and, let’s face it, every other day too.)

Julia ChildAND, how could I leave out the premiere Food blog of the decade, run by my mom & sis: Fab Frugal Food!

I also really like Rowena’s Rants, but Jen and I go so far back that our photos together are not in digital format! She rocks.

Ann is a friend-of-a-friend and her blog is a sweeping tribute to the feminine and beautiful.

Lately, I’ve been on a Feminist Mormon Housewives kick. Although, shouldn’t there be a non-housewife feminist Mormon blog? I think yes.

FINAL PROPS to these two women for founding my law school in 1896 because they were rejected by other schools and told, “women do not have the mentality for the law.”

Can Lost fans be any more annoying? Yes We CAN!
