Two Journeys

I’ve been writing this post for weeks, maybe months. I keep coming back to it, never publishing it. I’m not sure why.

Right now I am following the personal journeys of two doctors. One doctor is writing about her family of three learning how to be a family of four. Dr. Au just brought a new baby home and she makes me laugh out loud reading about things like poop. You know, “Mack had a poop today after which the only recourse I had was to just dump him straight into the bath. And then throw out all his clothes. And then move to a new house.” I love seeing a new blog post and can’t wait to read the next chapter, poop and all.

The other doctor writes about a family of five, who will inevitably have to learn how to live as a family of four. Dr. Smak and her husband write courageous blog posts about their four year old son, Henry, and his battle with cancer. I love seeing there’s a new post on their respective blogs, but I hold my breath, praying that when I open it, I will read a post about how Henry had another great day.

2/25/09 -- My heart is breaking tonight for Dr. Smak and her family...

Dr. Dino’s Secret Life


Notice I didn’t use links in this post. I think everyone knows how to get to Dr. Dino’s place. And well, y’all probably all know how to get to YouPorn, too, even if you won’t admit it. Umm, you know, if that REALLY is a legitimate website.

P.S., if you’re wondering how my fluff of a blog could draw in over 200,000 visitors, I just made that number up when I opened my new Sitemeter account. Looks impressive, though, doesn’t it?

I'm Rich Now

Not really. It was supposed to say $13 million. This would just pay off VISA. If I wasn't so lazy, I'd make a new picture.

Is is "wasn't so lazy"? or "weren't so lazy"? Neither?

If I were not so lazy, I'd make a new picture.

If I was not so lazy, I'd make a new picture.

I guess it would be easier just to find the website again and make a new picture.

Spilt Coffee

I read somewhere that the definition of crazy is doing the same thing over and over, but expecting different results. Call me crazy. Why do I keep believing that travel mugs are leak-proof? They aren’t. They never have been. They never will be. I’d write more but I have to go drain the coffee out of my satchel. No leak, my ass.

The Wellsphere controversy made me think of something that happened when I first joined The Firm. I was just out of law school and things weren’t going well. I kept making the same mistakes.

I walked into a partner’s office and asked him a question. He didn't say anything. He just opened his desk drawer, took out a Sharpie, and wrote RTFC in big bold letters on a legal pad. Then he got up from his desk, walked to my office, taped the sign to my monitor, and walked out without saying a word.

It wasn’t pretty, but he made his point. I keep the sign in my desk drawer so that I’m always reminded to read the fucking contract.
