The Post Where I'm a Bad Friend and A Good Friend In One

Sooooooo.....

Today is Share a Spoon with Adrienzgirl over at the Think Tank.  Today's theme is salads and while I had an EXCELLENT salad at dinner last night, I neglected to make anything to share and link up. (That's the part where I'm a bad friend.)  I totally recommend you head over to the Think Tank and check out all the delicious salad linked up for Dia de Ensalada!!! DO IT!

BFF a few years ago at a show
(Now for the part where I'm a good friend.) Do you remember last fall when my BFF moved super far away? Well, it turns out that because The Pile is a big, ugly liar and crazy petty, after two years of TRYING to be divorced, BFF's divorce has gone to trial.  While that means I get to see my most dear friend for several hours, it also means that my beloved must endure yet another emotional day rehashing the dreadful years that were her marriage and the loss of her life as she knew it. (If you're not caught up on BFF and would like to be, click here.)  So, my Wednesday was spent in a courtroom, listening to bs mud slinging done by The Pile's crazy (and by crazy I mean most likely insane and 100% morally and ethically bankrupt) attorney, The Pile admitting to having relapsed and having lied about it on a sworn document, and a parade of witnesses lying on his behalf.

I might mention that on Tuesday night, The Man fully prepared himself for the possibility of having to bail me out of the clink for being in contempt of court AND my dear friend Alicia totally recommended that I see about getting Lilo as a cell mate (even though she's in SoCal and I'm in quaint Minneapolis Suburb).  Proudly, as much as I wanted to punch the ugly, dumb, biznatch that was bullying my bestest friend ever, I didn't (patting myself on the back) and we all walked out of the courtroom sans handcuffs.

*added note - I did get a stern talking to from the bailiff when one of the phones in my purse started ringing on full volume.  Thanks a lot for asking me to hold your loud phone (you know I'd do anything for you) and making me look like a jackass. (You know the face I'm making at you right now.)

So, once again, we wait.  The judge presiding wanted the attorneys to present their findings and will take matters into consideration before providing a judgement.  She is STILL not divorced, (GRRR) but she is one step closer, and I was able to be there by her side. (See! Bad friend and good friend all in one post! Yay me!)

I wish I could have been there with you guys. I hate that man with every ounce of my soul and what he has done to her. I hope by some miracle that he gets hit by a bus or dies of alcohol poisoning (HA!!) and then she will get those kids back where they belong.

You're such a good friend. We would have totally taken up a collection to bail your ass out of jail.

Glad you didn't end up in jail! I had officer McHottie show up at my door this morning! I am all like "Oh Shit What?" Guess my neighbors got robbed. Doh!

I'm so with your bestie! My divorce has been two years, we finally had our "final" day in court - TWO FREAKING WEEKS AGO and the judge decided she needed to "write" her findings. Average wait time? 2 weeks...wait time allowed by law? 90 effin days! Hope your bestie's comes through faster than my has... I'm still waiting... waiting....waiting...waiting...

K you could never be a bad friend! Sorry your bestie is having such a hard time. And glad you didnt have to go to jail!

April said...

I think you showed more restraint than I would've. I most likely would've ended up being held for disrupting the courtroom! Good job!

You are a good friend!! I'm sorry your friend is having to go through all this - what a mess!

I would have totally faked like that wasn't my phone. I would have looked around like "Dayumm who's phone is that? How rude!"

Tamara aka Cheapskate Mom said...

Oh and I'm totally your first LIKE on Facebook - woot!

June said...

I'm so glad you were able to be there for her. Divorce and court = Ugly

You are a good friend and I hope to see you in August when you come to the Dells!!

I think the good friend far outweighs the bad friend...:)

Best of luck to her. That sucks.
