This is the end.  My only friends.  The end.  Of my elaborate plans.  The end.  Can’t you picture what could’ve been?  So limitless and free.  Desperately in need . . . of some . . . stranger’s hand.  In my desperate land.  It hurts to set you free.  But you’ll never follow me.  This is, after all, the end.    Keep reading . . .

Having a job that does not require weekend hours leaves me with much more free time than I’ve had in years.  That free time has freed me to read a few of the other blogs out there that chronicle the current state of the legal profession.  A few have included this blog on their blogroll.  Aside: I never instituted a blogroll.  I noted back in Fiftieth Post that I wasn’t much of a blog-reader.  Tides are turning a bit.  Keep reading . . .

When it rains, it pours, eh?  And when it’s shines . . . it’s hot?  Not sure what a corollary to that old adage would be, but today goes down in the books.  The blog broke a few records.  Read the rest of this entry »

Relaxing Sunday

I vacillated this morning for about two hours, going back and forth between going to work to put a few hours in and just staying home and relaxing.  Even though I went in to the court yesterday, after the day I mentioned in Limits and Liens and Loans, I couldn’t get anything done.  My mind wasn’t on my work.  So today, I just said screw it and relaxed today.

Instead of worrying all day, which won’t get anything accomplished anyway, I watched some television, read a book, and updated my blog posts.  And, just around sundown, I hopped in the pool and shot a few pictures from my iPhone of the sun sinking into the Caribbean Sea.

It’s good to rest every now and then.

Today started around 3am with a drive to the Philadelphia airport for a 7:30am flight to San Juan, Puerto Rico.  Nearly eighteen hours later, I was in my new apartment on St. Croix.  What a day.  Keep reading . . .
