Good News, Bad News: The Amy Cabrero Story

Amy Cabrero graduated from Texas Wesleyan’s law school earlier this year. Yay. At the end of last month, her husband Mike, a Marine staff sergeant, returned from a tour in Iraq, the first time she’d seen him in seven months. Yay. Then she took the three-day Texas bar exam. Slightly less enthusiastic yay. The couple spent the first days of their reunion packing up their apartment for a move to San Diego. Drag. Monday, they found out that the moving truck and all their belongings were destroyed in a fire. Good lord. The cherry on top:

“I had just gotten my law school diploma back from being custom framed, just in time to be on the moving truck,” she says. “And it got burned up in the fire. That’s the icing on the cake.”

Chin up, Cabreros. You’re due for a heaping helping of awesomeness. Help ’em out, San Diegans.

    I’ve never known what San Diego means in English? Anyone?

  2. Bethany says:

    Scholars maintain that the translation was lost hundreds of years ago.

  3. Andy G says:

    Doesn’t it mean “Saint Diego”?

  4. Andy G says:

    No, that’s – that’s what it means. Really.

  5. mm says:

    I’m fairly certain that it pertains to a breakfast waffle that’s been dropped on the beach.

    No, strike that. I’m better than that.

  6. Bethany says:

    Agree to disagree.

  7. Andy G says:

    Bethany…I would marry you if it weren’t for my wife’s rule about me marrying other women. Le sigh…

  8. AK says:

    I’m really upset that I got to this article too late, and Jay called end scene. Can I get in on the outtakes? Can I throw in a little… “I believe it means ‘whale’s vagina'”?

  9. JS says:

    Who says Jay gets to call “scene”? I think Jay is a smelly pirate hooker.

  10. Jay says:

    JS, you look like a blueberry.

  11. JS says:

    Why don’t you go back to your home on whore island?

  12. Jay says:

    Well you… have bad hair!

  13. JS says:

    what did you type?

  14. Zac Crain says:

    I love each and every one of you. Well done.

    [stands, slow claps]

    Now get back to it. Fantana and/or Brick lines next.

  15. AK says:

    I love lamp.

  16. Andy G says:

    I know what you’re thinking. And the answer is yes, I do have a nickname for my penis. It’s called The Octagon. But I’ve also nicknamed my testes. The left one is James Westfall, and the right one is Dr. Kenneth Noisewater. You ladies play your cards right, you might just get to meet the whole gang.

    [An aside…my wife went to college with Paul Rudd…James Westfall was one of his frat brothers]

  17. AK says:

    It’s called Sex Panther by Odeon. It’s illegal in nine countries. Yep, it’s made with bits of real panther, so you know it’s good.

  18. Jay says:

    I’m proud of you fellas. You all kept your head on a swivel, and that’s what you gotta do when you find yourself thrust into the middle of an Anchorman thread.

  19. AK says:

    I stabbed a man with a trident.
