I love scotch. Scotchy, scotch, scotch. Here it goes down, down into my belly...

We just had a scotch tasting at work.


Turns out I like the stuff - well, at least the good stuff. Who knew?

For a minute, I was seriously considering going out and buying a $200+ bottle. Now I'm over it.

Oh, Scotch is good stuff--you will like it even more if you are ever in Scotland. And I just clicked on the link for your 'anonymous law firm' and almost fell out of my chair, laughing at the headline, "Paralegal dies, firm excited about the arrival of new paperclips."

That is hilarious. In fact, I will probably laugh about that for several more days...too freaking funny.

One of my coworkers at the anonymous law firm that I actually work at sent around the link several months ago. We thought it was way too funny -- and way too true.

Since then, that's how I've been referring to my job.

Here's a question... With respect to all of the firm-related events you've had this summer, do these things make you like your firm more or less? What's the purpose beyond the forced "let's all get to know each other and be friends" comradery? Is it an attempt to buy your loyalty (beyond the salary), or convince you that they're "fun"? Just wondering... and, I know, this sounds somewhat snarky, but it's not meant to be. The firms I've been at just don't do that kind of stuff.

The events don't really impact how I feel about the firm. What they have done is let me get to know people, which, because I'm relatively new, was important. Especially because the office is so big.
