HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!

Help!

Fishfrog and I were talking about Deadwood last night and we got into a debate about who killed the guy who killed the prostitutes. I don't really want to go to the trouble to look up the answer, so can anyone out there settle this for us? I think that Hearst did it, and Fishfrog thinks that Dan did it. I think I'm right...

Bathroom extravaganza

Here are some before and during pictures of our bathroom renovation. Hopefully it will be done sometime in January, but as you can see, we have a long way to go.

Before:
(Notice, the bathroom door could only open about 70 degrees. People lived like this for years)






During:
(Next week we take down the wood slats on the wall and start redoing the plumbing)

It's Like I'm a Real Lawyer

A week and a half ago, I became a real lawyer. I represented a client in an arbitration. I examined our witness, I cross-examined their witness, and I gave an opening and closing statement. I was a lawyer.

It's sort of weird, because I've been a member of the bar and practicing law since last October. But when you're a specialist, dealing almost entirely with the minutiae of a tiny subsection of federal law, you don't really feel like you're doing what you thought a lawyer would do.

That's not to say I don't enjoy my actual work. I enjoy it quite a bit, actually. But a pro bono case here and there is pretty cool. Yes, it was a pro bono case. If you were a paying client of the firm, you'd get a considerably more competent attorney. That being said, I think I did quite well.

I'll let you all know when I get the arbitrator's decision.

In my defense...

I have been nagging Fishfrog over the last month to post something. It's not my fault.



On a different note, Fishfrog and I went to the super ginormous Obama rally in Portland a few weeks ago. Even though we were smashed in the middle of a mass of 70,000 people, it was pretty fun. Here is the picture we took on my phone. Obama is the fuzzy white dot in the middle.
