Want to write a blog, but can’t be bothered with the petty details of actually writing a blog? Get someone else to write your blog for you!

The blog in question has three posts — one from April 20th, one from April 21st, and one from April 23rd. I can see how he would determine in such an extensive period of time that he has no time to blog. Finding the time to write those 103 words must have been exhausting. I mean, I need to take a nap after every seventh … zzzzzzzz … I’m sorry, where was I? Ah, forget it. I’ll make Dan write the rest of this p

    Man, ever since I lost that job answering texts for that CEO, I’ve been looking for a job that would allow me to stretch my skills to the next level. I wonder where I could find such a job…

        My roommate is going to teach me Portuguese when I get back from my post-bar trip to Paris…maybe this job will still be available! I might need it, assuming the legal job market continues to suck.

          Bridgete, some firms (at least, here in NYC) are taking people on at really low rates to do pro bono work. Less than ideal but at least you still get $$$. Not like this job!

          I don’t think Boston firms are doing that. The scheme here seems to be postponing the start dates for the few people they even gave job offers to in the first place, and paying them something less than the usual starting salary if they go volunteer with some legal services organization. But even if there are some Boston firms doing that, it’s probably only the big firms, and I’m not a big firm kind of gal. I’d honestly rather be a waitress with than sell my soul to one of those places. Or maybe a barista, I hear Starbucks has great benefits.

          Some of the pro bono work was done with classes who came in even with the later start dates. Apparently when the 1st yrs were informed of that, they took the offers anyway, given the current situation. I hope you can avoid that – and if you’re not a biglaw type of person, you might not have to worry about it as much.
          Now get back to studying for the bar! 😉

          PS: Protip: The firm’s librarians remember when you’re nice to them, and if we they have to decide who they’re going to help first in a time-sensitive situation, it’s usually the nice person. You seem fine, but some of your future colleagues never learned this. 8)

          PS – We Northeastern students learn a lot of the protips with our four internships, but I think that one is still lost even on some of us. You’re right though, it’s not really a problem with me…I’m a nice person anyway. I even apologize when I absolutely have to send food or drinks back, and I only do it when I made a specific request that was not followed so now it’s inedible or going to kill me or something.

          Lola, you gave some excellent advice to a prospective attorney: BE NICE. I know attorneys ( a lot of them) who treat the clerks, staff and anyone else who they see as “beneath” them like dirt, and they wonder why they can’t get their case processed, or their summons issued, or whatever. It’s proper, in the first place, to treat everyone with respect, but you get the added benefit of having people treat you nicely in return. I have had clerks wait for me AFTER HOURS, at the courthouse door,while I was scrambling to get there to get something filed on time. Think they do that for the jerks?

          Bridgete and jg,
          Obviously, some of it is firm culture which dictates general behavior. The one I am at now was started by a couple of guys who were probably not considered the right sort to join the old white-shoe firms. I used to be at a white-shoe firm, and they were largely insufferable (they also have very few partners of color, and even fewer female partners than most firms of equivalent size and client type, to give you an idea of what a dinosaur they are). Paying the first years $150,000+ to start probably encouraged this thinking.
          I am now at a different firm, and the lawyers there went to similar schools and pay similarly. There are very few d-bags, comparatively, because the firm’s culture by and large doesn’t encourage it. The very first one I was at had a litigation department that seemed to encourage certain kinds of psychological pathologies (and it is now run by someone who is clearly overcompensating for something, which is deeply unpleasant to have to deal with on a constant basis). It’s not perfect where I am now – the class structure is still firmly in place between attorneys and support staff – but they have a lot less attitude. One of our big rainmaker corporate partners told me today, “Even though we act like it is, this isn’t brain surgery. It’s not life or death if you can’t get me this article in a PDF.” He’s a classy guy, always, and that was nice to hear. And I did get him the article in PDF, and he took the time to thank me. I’ve had a lot worse days, for certain.
          /rant
          Re: Cats: Severus looks to be a highly appropriate name. jg – there’s a breed called Bombay that is a cross between black American shorthair and Burmese. They’re really nice looking cats.

      There is probably great hilarity possible in the concept of “zombie journalist/author” and from sublime to ridiculous.

          [possible corey]I have heard, but cannot be bothered to remember where, that the eggs used in tube-o-dough have been pasteurized and are safe to eat without worrying about ickies. Like the cookie dough in cookie dough ice cream.[/possible corey]

          On a related OT note, I was over at my sister’s once and we (meaning me) were making cookies from scratch. I ate some of the dough and you would have though I had just bitten the head off a kitten. “That’s disgusting! How could you do that?” and so forth. This is the same person who used to fight with me over who got to lick the bowl when Mom made cookies.

          Personally, I’ve never gotten sick from eating raw cookie dough, but the stuff that toll house makes and the tube-dough that pillsbury makes doesn’t have pasteurized eggs in it. That messes up their adhesive properties when the cookie gets baked. However, the dough tastes exactly the same so it can be used for ice cream etc.

          Salmonella and other egg-borne diseases are extremely rare these days, so even with unpasteurized eggs, the risk is fairly low that you’ll get anything (1 in 10,000 eggs has salmonella inside the shell). The Nestle Toll House dough recall recently was related to e. coli – which would have been introduced during processing the dough, not with the eggs. Poor handling by stores once it arrived probably led to a few bacteria multiplying into billions.

          I <3 raw doughs…cookie dough, cake dough, even bread dough 😀 Only thing I hate is angelfood cake dough. The cake is delicious, the dough is awful.

          Brownie dough=awesome. My dude hates brownies, though, so I don’t make them often. He’s also afraid of my cookies that I make from scratch, because I’m a really shit baker.

          Ah [ugh, joint creak and ache] the slings and arrows of a youth spent doing exactly as I ought, including the zigging when zagging would have been better.

          To have been, and to have done, to have gone forth, is if to wall the breech if needs must fot those Sparlies who cannot part from theire chaises long enough to update even a fashion model blog . . .

          First off, you’d best not have trademarked my disputation ond oraatory style ‘lessin’ you start sending some remuneration my way and tuit suite!

          Secondly, we had here a juxtaposition of paperwork, cloacae, government, and refuse.

          All while I was gathering up heaps of paperwork needing shredding.

          I was doing this, since the local governement (CSPD) was sponsoring the shredding as a way to educate on ID theft prevention.

          They are going to use a spiffy truck-mounted unit, too, for the whole TonkaToy for big boys effect.

          When finished, the shredded material will wind up with the County’s coffee grounds and the like; off to the midden as it were.

          Which also was handy as this saves me the expense of having a bushel of stuff shredded during a time of great personal impoverishment (think getting alms from churchmice).

          This all struck a pleasantly funny chord.

    Wow, a jørnalist?

    Here’s a list of Jørns:

    Jorn Barger is the editor of the Weblog “Robot Wisdom.” Not a professional model, though.

    There’s Jørns Andersen, Didriksen, Jamtfall, Krab, Skaarup, Sorenson, and Vermeulen, who are all athletes – some of them are probably good looking… hmm.

    Jørns Christensen and Jeppesen are actors. Jørn Madslien is a BBC journalist. They’re used to being on stage or TV. That’s kinda like a model!

    Jørns Magdahl and Skille are in civil service/politics. Not the same, though.

    Hmm, academics can be sexy… what about Jørn Hurum, paleontologist, or Jørn Rattsø, economist? No?

    What about crime? Bad boys are kinda like models, right? There’s Jørn Nielsen, mobster and Hell’s Angel, or Jørn Tagge, fraudster…

    Maybe it’s music that’s what gets you going – Jørn Tunsberg or Jørn Lande! Look at that model-quality!

    Naah. Gotta go with Jørn Sloth, correspondence-chess grandmaster.

      And I had all my evil ready for it too. I guess my evil will just have to percolate in its darkness, brewing itself into a black sludge of villainy.

    Watching some pron or some LOLcats online.
