It’s 1:45 and I’m in the middle of a show on Animal Planet called “Help! I’m Becoming a Cat Lady!” It’s What Not to Wear (or Do, or Say) for dating cat ladies. No joke. This exists, people. Tonight’s episode featured Gina, who has Blue, her “firstborn,” and Trinket. Gina is a “cat mommy” and keeps, like, 30 framed pictures of...
PerStirpes: Oh my god, I had the best dream this morning! It was my first trial, it was a big case, I second chaired, and we won! It was fabulous and- J: That is what you dream about? I dreamt I won $200k, and you dream about second chairing trials. This is my life. Even my dreams are boring now.

There are 3 other lawyers at the Firm including myself that don’t have an assigned assistant, so we use whoever is available as needed. Ideally. I have trouble with one of these assistants. While she will work loyally for her...
client comes into the office: You mailed uh... these Interrogatories to me a couple weeks ago and said to return it to you today. I couldn't answer any of them. Here you go. *hands over blank interrogatories*
I love Harry Potter. I love it even more out of context. “What did he do to you, Diddy?” Aunt Petunia said in a quavering voice, now sponging sick from the front of Dudley’s leather jacket. “Was it - was it you-know-what, darling? Did he use - his thing?” Slowly, tremulously, Dudley nodded.

I LOVE Netflix. Not enough to get my own account, but enough to hijack J’s. I’ve been watching a LOT of movies lately, both amazing and terrible. Walk the line? Great movie. Tron (original)? Also awesome. Tron: Legacy? All sorts of unnecessary. Haven’t seen it? Let me summarize it for you. (spoilers ahead!) Flynn, played by Jeff Bridges aka The Dude, entered the Digiworld...
Didn’t your dad do the same for OJ? Pot calling the kettle big bootied… or something like that
I hope you’ll all be wearing this, or something like this, this weekend. Anything less… enthusiastic… is clearly unpatriotic, and I’ll be forced to report you to INS.
