"If your Conan lasts more than three hours, consult a doctor."

This has been a surprisingly big weekend and is promising to be a great week.

1. The Superbowl. I only watched half of the SuperBowl because we had Stake Conference through the first half. I can tell I live in a rich Stake because of two things: 1) the high concentration of luxury sedans/SUV's in the parking lot; 2) the Stake President used the word, "yoke" and explained that he is not referring "to the yellow part of the egg that most of us throw away and don't eat." Stake Conference was also a parade of apocryphal stories about our holiest houses of worship. Good times.

2. Motion Practice. Today, I went to another hearing. I used to say that it was my first of its kind, which it was, but it's not my first hearing. I've been to 3 or 4 now, so now when I say that I'm experienced, it's no longer a lie, just an exaggeration. Anyway, the hearing went pretty well, and the judge indicated that our side would likely win. The official story is that we will win because of my superior advocacy skills. The truth is that the other side's major case in support of their position was overturned by the Supreme Court between the time they wrote their brief and oral argument. Oh, and we were very likely to win anyway. But hey, a win is a win.

3. TV. This week, all my favorite shows restart: Chuck, Heroes, Life, Law and Order, The Office, 30 Rock and Saturday Night Live. The great part is that last night after the SuperBowl, The Office ran an hour-long episode which was great on so many levels. My favorite line of the night: "Oscar, you're gay. Boom, roasted! Andy, Cornell called and said you suck, and you're gayer than Oscar. Boom, roasted!" It was a great episode.

4. Warmth. I hate winter. I hate snow and I hate cold. So, now that it's warmed up a bit, I'm in a much better mood. Now, if only the inversion could lift so I can go outside without risking my life, I'd be golden.
