Hunting for Crumbs

Posted on July 08, 2010
My big plans for getting court appointments until I can get fully-paying clients is proving difficult. Not only is The City over-saturated with lawyers, but so are the surrounding counties, apparently. Depressing. So, tomorrow is Mass Phone Call Day, where I start cold-calling all the judges in this area of the state, begging for appointments...

July Fourth

Posted on July 05, 2010
Busy weekend for us. First, I've done a ton of cleaning. I figure since I'm unemployed, and there's not really anything I can do during a holiday since I don't have any clients yet, I can do something productive. So, I finally cleaned out Cora's closet...

Life on Unemployment

Posted on June 30, 2010
I've been remarkably busy for someone who has no job. I don't really understand how looking for a job can be more time-consuming than actually having a job, but I digress.In addition to contacting everyone I know for job leads, meeting new people through networking events and general schmoozing, and surfing the web for any crumb of job leads, I've also been prepping to go out on my own...

Work at home parent? Oh nos.

Posted on June 21, 2010
Since my job leads have been exhausted, and I've gotten either rejection letters or no response at all, it looks more and more like Proto Attorney Law Office is the future of my legal career. Never ever ever in my life did I imagine that would be my career...

End of Convention

Posted on June 19, 2010
I've always wondered how on earth lawyers manage to not fulfill their CLE requirements and then get suspended from the bar for it. We need 12.5 hours each year, and the annual convention alone yields 20 and only costs between $200-$300. Well, after spending 3 days doing this nonsense, now I know how: IT SUCKS...

First convention day

Posted on June 16, 2010
I made it to the 7:30 a.m. breakfast, five minutes late by the time I found the correct ballroom, and when I walked in, I was the only one there other than the panelists. Nice. Eventually a few other people showed up. However, it was worth showing up at 7:30...

Tales of the Unemployed

Posted on June 15, 2010
The following is why, when you're studying for your nurse practitioner boards, you don't want your newly-unemployed bored house frau sitting around bugging you.Husband: (muttering to himself) A malaria question? Seriously?Me: Ooh, ooh! I know the answer! Mosquitoes!Husband: (blinks) Okay...

MILP Roundup #154

Posted on June 14, 2010
The Roundup is Here.


Posted on June 12, 2010
My last day at the office was a half day. The (now former) Boss popped into my (now former) office and asked how things were progressing. At that point, I was down to my very last file and told him I should be finished by lunchtime. He said he'd been reading through my file memos as I produced them and things looked good and I could cut out early...

Day 3 of Impending Unemployment

Posted on June 10, 2010
So, it's a little awkward around the office. The Boss has avoided any and all contact with me since telling me I don't have a job. His wife, who usually comes in to chat, hasn't so much as even waved when she's in the office. Awkward. At least the staff's still talking to me, I kinda feel like a leper...

Day 2 of Impending Unemployment

Posted on June 10, 2010
Husband and Cora went back to The City today. After much deliberation, we decided to come back on Saturday to move the furniture. There isn't much: my music equipment, mattress and box spring, Cora's mattress, the couch, the dresser, a little bookshelf, coffee table and the elliptical...

The Unemployment Post

Posted on June 08, 2010
I think I mentioned before how, whenever the Boss calls me into his office, it freaks me out just a little. It's like getting called to the principal's office. There's that little bit of panic you have to swallow down and reassure yourself, it's just an assignment...

Posted on June 01, 2010
This weekend was pretty busy. Cora and I went to the local carnival with her friend J and J's parents and little sister. We ate carnival food (diet fail), rode the carousel (which Cora hated, although she did thank the horsies after it was over), and Cora won a blue stuffed dolphin by picking up a rubber ducky in the bucket of rubber duckies (with a particular letter written on its posterior)...

Long-overdue weight loss blogging

Posted on May 24, 2010
It's been awhile, I know. I'm still truckin' along, trying to lose weight. I haven't quite fallen off the wagon, I'm still technically losing weight. But I have been losing momentum. I need to fix that. Also, exercise has been waning. Pilates has been on hiatus while the dance school had their spring performance, so I plan to go back in June...

Politics, Racism and Crazies

Posted on May 21, 2010
Now that the primary is over, it's going to be a long long long seven months til November. I'm going to have to stop reading the news, because the more words that fall out of Rand Paul's mouth, the more disgusted I get. Not because of the epic stupid of many of his positions, but because my fellow citizens are too stupid to realize his positions are stupid, and will vote him into office...

Primary Fun

Posted on May 18, 2010
Today is Primary Day. I'm making the trip back to The City a little early so I can go vote. Honestly, I normally don't vote in primaries because I usually don't have a strong feeling about who the candidates should end up being. But there are some important races this time and a few folks I want to see run, and a few I don't...

WE WON!(After 3 1/2 hours of deliberations well into the evening. We were awarded the maximum damages we asked for, which was limited to lost wages, because the judge refused to give the jury an instruction on pain and suffering -- suck. The instructions written by defense counsel were crappily-worded too, but whatev...

Run down

Posted on May 11, 2010
The past week and a half has been insane.Last week, I made three round trips between The City and Small Town. To Small Town Monday morning with Cora, back to The City Tuesday night with Cora. Back to Small Town Wednesday morning, back to The City on Thursday night...

Attempted Death by Old People and Other Misc. Aches and Pains

Posted on May 03, 2010
I just dropped a butt-load on car repairs. I stupidly didn't call the cops on Thursday after old people ran me off the road out in BFE, because I figured I didn't hit anything, I just went into the grassy median and the car seemed just fine. There wasn't even a curb, just grass...

Motion for Lubrication

Posted on April 28, 2010
I swear, my next motion is going to have that title. "Undersigned counsel respectfully requests the Court to provide lubrication for the next time [her client] is violated by the judicial proceedings." Balls. It's been a helluva day, and it's only 3:30...
