This month, I once again get to host the fabulous Jes from Jes Getting Started. I've hosted this gorgeous lady so many times she may has well get a permanent guest position on my blog. She didn't provide an intro this month because she saw fit to leave it to me. This girl is amazing, funny, talented and has a set of wicked-awesome pipes and happens to be singing one of my favourite Christmas songs. So check her out and then leave her some loving!

I'm rocking out to my number 2 favourite Christmas song over on Carolina's blog, Carolina Thinks. It's a hilarious song with a movie made about it that's about as lame as can be and I love love love love love it.

The thing is. It's my opinion. And I have to ask myself if this opinion would cost me a career writing for the publications I want to write for, would I really want to write for them?
If this blog were still secret, I wouldn't be so torn. But at the same time, whether or not it's public, this is the place where I am open, I can talk about things.
So do I do it? I don't know...

As we speak I'm sitting in the lobby at a courthouse shaking and wishing I could be anywhere else. Heck, I would even be content to be here for jury duty interviews. But instead, I am here as a witness. Which, if you think about it is better than being here as a defendant, but still.
I had always imagined that my first time in court would be as a reporter. Writing a piece on the trial at hand. I guess most things in life don't end up happening the way you imagine they will.
Today I have to stand as a witness against the kid who caused my car accident in June. To make my statement about how he was at fault, and how based on his actions and words, he did not give a crap about it.
I'm certain it won't be nearly as bad as I am fearing it will be, but it doesn't change the fact that my stomach is in knots and I am terrified. What makes my nerves worse is that I don't actually know when this trial will be taking place. I don't know when I will have to stand or when we will be called in.
As I'm writing this though, the officer in charge has just graced me with some good news. At this point, it looks like the kid is going to plead guilty which means I won't have to stand witness.
Life's little blessings, right?
