It's not that trainee lawyers are crazy, but that the practice makes them so.

Reborn - Yamamoto CHIBITA
This song goes out to my Opposing Counsel, because it perfectly describes one of the cases I've been on since last December:

First you say you won't, then you say you will.
You keep me hanging on, and we're not moving on
I"m standing still, Jenny, you got me on my knees
Jenny, it's killing me

The Click Five, Jenny

CAN WE GO TO TRIAL ALREADY


It's funny that I was talking to elvaron about just this situation, because today I had a major heart attack when the client called and wanted to talk to me because everyone else coincidentally wasn't in the country.

Also, today I recorded the most billable hours for any day I've worked so far, so this CALLS FOR A CELEBRATION!

Also the way I unwind after an entire day with law in my head is with a lot of pictures.



altor discovery of capslock worthy proportions

I HAVE DISCOVERED THAT RIGHT-CLICKING ON THE ALTOR GAME TAKES AWAY THE TEXT BOX AND LETS YOU SCREENCAP THE ARTWORK DIRECTLY.



Incidentally, Altor is EVIL. EVIL. Just three hours with the Mukuro path and still uncompleted, mind you, and already taking the Gokudera path BREAKS MY HEART.

GOKUDERA MAKES EVERYTHING BETTER.







OH BE QUIET I'M OBSESSIVE

LOOK HOW MANY EXPRESSIONS HE HAS




THE COMPLETELY BORED AND LOOKING AT BASEBALL IDIOT AND UTTERLY UNIMPRESSED EXPRESSION


THIS IS MY FAVOURITE EXPRESSION. IT'S THE I'M LOOKING AT JYUUDAIME AND I LIKE WHAT I SEE expression.


TENTH IS MY HAPPY PLACE








Clearly related to Xanxus. Even the ANGSTRAGE is hereditary.



Giotto and his Mist Guardian


HEY I WOULDN'T SAY NO TO THAT WAKING ME UP BUT THIS IS CLEARLY WHY I'M NOT THE MIST GUARDIAN.


My instinctual caption to this picture should NOT be "TENTH I LOVE YOUR SMILE".
The OBJECTIVE caption is "Giotto has a beautiful smile."







Tsuna + Mukuro




I LOVE MUKURO WHEN HE LOOKS LIKE THIS.


AND I CAN'T SAY NO TO A FACE LIKE THIS


LOVED this picture. And this moment. IT WAS SO ADORABLE.

I remember getting free passes to see The Click Five... they're not bad. And from the front row, you can tell Kyle Patrick is extremely pretty. More so than most females I know.

Aww, pretty caps. I like the art style of that. *drool*~D:

*grin* Awesome! I'm glad to hear they're not bad: I've always thought they were the kind of boyband that sounded much better on CDs than they could in real life. ;)

I'm totally with you on the pretty. ;)

It's gorgeous art! ♥ I hope to post more when I finish playing the game. ♥

Pei Yi is a boring eater and has no foodie tendencies.

In other words: CHRIS, LET'S TRY THIS PLACE OUT SOON!

There are actually a lot of places that I want to try but Pei Yi does not really appreciate food enough to make her a viable companion. Ergo, I go to you.
11th-Apr-2008 05:39 pm (UTC) - ABSOLUTELY~
I would say do not be MEEEEEN, Eve, but it would be like telling you not to be you ~

!!! I've either tried that place before or wanted to try it out, so LET'S GO FOR IT! ♥

C'MON, LET'S GO GET FOOD. ♥ I adore new places! HOW DID YOU MANAGE TO FIND RESTAURANTS YOU WANTED TO TRY SO FAST, MAN. ;)
11th-Apr-2008 05:43 pm (UTC) - Re: ABSOLUTELY~
Dude, I read food blogs and am thinking of subscribing to Time Out Singapore for the food section alone. I have a list of like over 20 places I want to try.

I'm never mean. How rude.

Also, I'm replaying Abyss. Why, I do not know.

That should go to my client who keeps changing his bloody mind about trial dates! BAH!!!!!!!!

All the lawyers in my firm went on a 1.5 week golfing trip leaving poor articling student behind as the "go-to" person for all law-related questions. GRRRRR!! My phone is ringing non-stop with client calls.

My record billable hour in one day was 16.75 *vomits* I don't ever want to repeat that.

Now I must deal with a 80-page defendant's counterclaim. WHO THE HECK FILES A 80-page COUNTERCLAIM!!!!??? No wonder the case was siphoned off to me!

Sigh....my term is up in 2 months...then I'll be called.

*comforthugs!* I know the feeling - I suspect many of us do.

I know this is totally the wrong reaction, but ... I want to be able to duplicate your record billable hour day! But seriously, I imagine it must have been hell.

HANG IN THERE! It sounds like you've had a really gruelling few months: but I'm worried for you: will things improve after you get called?
11th-Apr-2008 06:02 pm (UTC)
Well, I haven't found another firm to bum to after being called, but I'm not staying where I'm at. The place I'm at right now is not near my home town, so I intend to move.

I guess it's UI line first after being called, then I'll find a firm in the Asian community that can use a multilingual fresh lawyer (who still requires lots of trianing). I don't feel like putting my Cantonese, Mandarin and Japanese skills to waste.

One piece of advice--DO NOT repeat the 16.75 billable hour in one day. I was a walking zombie by the end of the day and nearly crashed my car while driving home. not good not good......

Wahhhh that 3rd pic is really pretty :O Gokudera is the cutest. But I have a soft spot for Chrome XD;

♥ I love you for saying Gokudera's the cutest! AND that you have a soft spot for Chrome! ♥ Chrome is special to me. ♥

I wish we were in the same country, I would totally play this game for you. ♥
11th-Apr-2008 10:43 pm (UTC)
He is. I doodled him after seeing your spam XD; Chrome should have a real fight once instead of relying on Mukuro though...

Come visit Canada! You can discover snow XDDDD
