I gave my biggest continuing education law lecture yet---first hotel ballroom gig. It went pretty well, I think. You always get a few people who want to talk afterwards and I met some crazy lawyers with crazy questions. :shock: :lol:

Different perhaps but "extraordinary"? The utter vapidity of the trend disheartens me. One dull glimmer in the piece is that the DJ mixes in some Cumbria and other native music into the otherwise dull and repetitive disco/techno crap cheese.

Kudos Michael i didn't know you were doing those as part of your job. I've not taught or spoke at large events but having attended CEU conferences I could appreciate your comment on the weird lawyers. You can only imagine the weird nuclear medicine scientists/doctors. I've known few including one who wrote the chapter on statistics in one of my textbooks. Knuckin Futz. :D

I googled an online boot store that sold those curly boots a few years ago. I was surprised at them too. Ot's a different world.

My cousin's daughter made her first communion on Saturday. At the lunch afterwards the kids were given a helium balloon with postcard to fill in their name and with an email address to reply to if you found it.

The balloons were launched from Paisley in Scotland. Last night a reply was received from Drumquin in Ireland.

So far so ordinary. However our grandparents before they moved to Scotland came from a small place in Ireland called Drumquin. :-)

Thanks! I really like teaching lawyers and it's really the only element of any career strategy that I have. I'll be able to retire in another 12 years or so and if we're still here, I want to hit the ground running in private practice, but for that to work, lots of lawyers need to know who I am and think I'm smart. The only way to put myself out there is to get into the CLE circuit. I've done a fair amount of it so far (though my boss does way more) but this was the first proper ballroom gig, so that's a victory!

So embarrassed. OK, I've been REALLY busy lately, but seriously, sleeping through three wake up alarms, sleeping for 13 hours, on a workday, arriving at work just past noon? Really?

So embarrassed. :oops:

Rented out my Oregon place today to a new COO of a leading healthcare system in Oregon. He's leasing for a year. I don't think I'll have to worry about rent - he pulls down over $20,000 per month.

They have four pets. Two cats and two dogs and the dogs are service animals. I get that a Labrador is a service animal, but a Korgi?

You should ask him for tickets to blazers games.

I applied for a couple jobs this week and got some responses. Phone interviews for a communications director position at the school of journalism, University of Oregon and Sales and Marketing Director for a local, regional electronics distributor. For the electronics distributor, I interviewed for a catalog coordinator position like 15 years ago. That's when companies like that provided quarterly product catalogs for customers. A lot of catalog printing went out of business with the internet.

What the hell happened to James Harden and Lionel Aldridge? It was like the monsters getting the NBA players' abilities like in Space Jam.
