Blog Cuss-o-Meter

The Blog-O-Cuss Meter - Do you cuss a lot in your blog or website?

Around 0% of the pages on your website contain cussing.This is 100% LESS than other websites who took this test.

I stole this from Mr. EE at Backboards and Band-Aids. My Blog-o-Cuss Meter is obviously having technical difficulties. Nothing ever fucking works on this blog.

Happy Easter

Blogger and YouTube have been acting weird lately and I somehow ended up with two Happy Easter posts. So, here's a quiz to replace the duplicate Easter video.

Your Pickup Line Is

Hi will you help me find my lost puppy? I think he went into this cheap hotel room across the street.

How do you tell a 35 year old man to stop picking his nose?

He is constantly picking his nose. The last time Boogers was in my office to talk about a case, he had his fingers up his nose the entire time. A few months ago, his secretary went to the office manager and asked to be reassigned because she didn't want to touch anything that Boogers gave her. He stopped for a while after that, but now he is back at it full time.

Today was the last straw. The group of attorneys I usually eat lunch with invited Boogers to join us for lunch at our favorite Mexican restaurant. I didn't find out he was going with us until we were walking out to the parking garage and, by that time, it was too late to back out. Boogers picked his nose during the entire ride to the restaurant.

We get to the restaurant, sit down, and the waiter places a huge basket of tortilla chips and salsa in front of us. Guess who was the first one to stick his boogery hand into the basket of chips? Yuck. How do you get a grown man to stop picking his nose?

The Cat That Came Back From the Dead

When I was growing up, we had a cat named Herman. Herman slept with me every night for as far back as I can remember. He fell ill with some cat disease that would require a lot of money and time at the animal hospital to cure, and there was no guarantee the treatment would work. While we weren’t poor, my parents were trying to raise three kids and spending that much money on Herman wasn’t in the budget.* They made the decision to put Herman to sleep. We said our goodbyes and my mother took him to the vet.

Time went by and, one afternoon, my mother got a phone call from the vet. He told her we could come get Herman, he was all well now. My poor mother didn’t know what was going on, and the vet explained that he knew how much we loved Herman so he had treated him for free. To this day, what that vet did still brings tears to my eyes. **

I have to admit I didn’t go to law school so I could “help people”. Mostly, I just thought being a lawyer would be a good job and the pay would be decent. When I was in law school, I belonged to some organizations that provided pro bono legal services, and I thought I would always be doing some pro bono work for the rest of my career. It’s what I was trained to do, so why wouldn’t I want to help people if I could?

I haven’t done any pro bono work since I passed the bar. I can’t do it during the day because I have to work on my cases and get my “billable” hours in. At the end of a ten hour day, I am tired and hungry and just want to change into shorts and a tee and eat dinner while watching some mindless reality show on television (mindless as in Big Brother, not Project Runway or Top Chef). That’s when we are not preparing for trial; at the end of a 16 hour day, I start stripping when I hit the front door and just fall into bed.

I hate to say it, but I don’t know when, or if, I will ever get to do any pro bono work. I’m just too damn tired.

*How things have changed. They spent $$$$$ on knee surgery for their current dog. My mother slept on an Aero bed on the floor for weeks after the surgery because the dog couldn’t jump on or off a regular bed.

**I have a lot of questions about that incident, but they will remain unasked. Knowing my father, I'm sure he must have told my mother to pay the vet when she picked up Herman.

Can you tell I’m still in work mode? Two footnotes on my BLOG post!
