Busy week

After the busy long weekend, I had clients in town today, and this evening the firm had a wine tasting event at Zola, featuring Michael Green. It was really interesting, and I learned a lot.

Tomorrow, I get sworn in to the D.C. Bar. Saturday, we're going to minor league baseball. Sunday, I'm going sailing, another firm-related summer event.

Alas, I don't think I'm going to have time to see either Pirates of the Carribean or A Scanner Darkly.

I think I'm going to have to schedule myself more downtime in the not-too-distant future.

Yeah. A life of trips to Chicago, wine tasting, baseball, and sailing must suck.

I'm not saying it sucks. I'm saying that I haven't had five seconds to decompress in an awfully long time.

Hey, congrats on the bar thing.

Dara said...

Thanks Mad. The 10-page application and the getting dressed in a suit this morning were a lot of hard work.

Seriously, I'm hoping that this is the last one for a while. My friends, family, and co-workers have got to be bored with filling out background check forms.

mad said...

They background check you to attend a bar swearing-in ceremony? Is it held in the White House?

Dara said...

No, it is not held in the White House. But the background check is even more invasive.

Apparently, the goal is to try to weed out criminals from the practice of law at the beginning. Once you're in, however, it's just a question of how criminal you can get without losing your license.
