Quick report

I have a moment to make a quick report, in case anyone was wondering where I've been. I have, since Friday morning, now billed 30 hours in preparing my emergency application. I smell bad, my glasses are filthy, I am out of emergency chocolate, and my desk is a wreck of old torn up drafts, empty coffee cups, lost pens, files, folders, documents -- both originals and copies, statute and form books, and transcripts. I have a notice of motion, a memorandum of law, and, most importantly, an affidavit for my client to sign. I will serve it all tomorrow morning and then see about digging out. I believe it will hit the plaintiff right between the eyes.

This is not the fun and romantic career I thought I was getting into when I used to watch L.A. Law.

I hope I have not missed much fun stuff on all the other blogs.

As I dig out of my own hole--surfacing from 9th grade research papers and parent phone calls about kids who need to get into Harvard 4 years from now, and whose lives I personally have shattered because of this grade--I am sending you zen vibes of hope and good cheer. Rock on with your bad self!

Ugh, ugh. I hope your newest efforts knock the socks off the plaintiff and your client gets what they deserve.

Also wishing you a full nights sleep, a vacation with the family, and chocolate. Plenty of chocolate.

I avoided watching L.A. Law, at all costs, just because it was on TV.
The work is the thrill! The pain is only yer growth! May we all yet suffer as much as ye, me matey!

Oop, sorry. Talk Like A Pirate Day was last month...

What have you missed on blogs? Where do I begin!

Jim of SBD has gone gay. Finally, he's come out of the closet and admitted secretly he's always wanted to spend his life in drag and grow old surrounded by 50 cats and the original recordings of all of Debbie Reynold's songs.

Ravings of a Corporate Mommy? Well, Elizabeth and her family have quit the rat race nad now own a farm of sunflowers, which will be run as a cooperative.

And me? I'm on the lam. I stole that painting after all-I mean, it was easy to do. I speak Swedish, after all :)

Hang in there, baby.

Debbie Reynolds rules!!!!!

1)Order in chocolate at next opportunity. I thought you NY'ers could order in anything.
2)Burn material on top of desk
3)Use fire to roast marshmallows and make s'mores or Stinky, whatever comes first
4)Give self a long holiday weekend.
5)Institue "costume" only dress code at the firm.

Hope it works out RP, I'm your your memo of law was terrific. Based upon your prior comments about the quality of justice your client received below I'm sure you'll get a good result.
