i guess i should be flattered?

My attorney friend and I both got an email from another attorney stating that she’s so happy we agreed to speak at next month’s Female Bankruptcy Attorney seminar and asking if we had decided upon a topic yet. She then asked us to forward our outline so she could get it approved for CLE credit by the bar association. I immediately got a second email from attorney friend asking, “Did you agree to do this because I know I didn’t?” Nope. Sure didn’t agree to do it or ever even agree to think about doing it, but apparently the chief judge wants us to do it so… ย Guess we better come up with a topic this weekend.

Exciting news!

I can finally share my exciting law firm news: we are expanding! We plan to open an office in Kansas City by the end of the year. There has been a lot of planning involved, and there is a lot of work left to do, but Scott and I are very excited. We just told the staff today and they are (for the most part) very excited as well. Yay for new adventures!

I can taste blood

because I’ve been biting my tongue all morning. So far I have refrained from going off on:

  • a court clerk
  • a prosecutor
  • my employees

All of whom have deserved my wrath on this fine fucking day.

I am definitely practicing patience and kindness today.

Oh and tomorrow? Tomorrow is going to suck hella fucking hard. I have a case on the docket tomorrow morning that is so fucked I can’t even…

This is why so many attorneys are alcoholics.


This makes me smile.

Today is Admin Professionals Day and since I couldn’t be in the office, I sent each of our three legal assistants a flower arrangement. They were apparently just delivered and my partner texted me: You’ve got a bunch of chicks here in near tears ๐Ÿ˜Š.

These ladies are so very fabulous and it’s my job to make sure they know how much I appreciate them. I love making them happy.
