A Series of Increasingly Fortunate Events....

Still home, more out of abundance of caution than real need.  Last night's sleep went much better, and today's, um, output has been much more controlled. I start back in with appointments tomorrow, and think I'll be up to them.  Only one of them is court; Thursday, I need to take Ebony to the vet because somehow Dum-Dum owner let her rabies lapse and I need that before I can relicense her (or, um, take her to a dog park:P).  Then Friday's day out consists of a committee meeting here, then a late day in Rochester- partly to deal with craziness from client past, and probably to bring some stuff out to Emily and Cameron.


----

Most of today, I've been working on one judgment.  Amazing, what people put out about themselves on the internet.  I filed it against a guy just last month; I'd asked the client for any information that would help collect it, but googling his name got me straight to his Linkedin profile- which shows, among other things, that he runs a sports memorabilia business, one that was totally unrelated to the work my client did for him.

I've already prepared the papers in which, in so many words, I threaten to take away his baseball cards.

----

We both stayed home after long days yesterday, and have no plans to be out tonight, but I suppose we should celebrate cause it's my wife's special day:



The term itself is a Firesign Theater reference, but apparently there's also a punk band with that name which is where the image comes from.

----

And then the day will end with my annual intellectual butt-kicking:  the Jeopardy online contestant test goes live at 9:00 eastern.  Most years, I've either forgotten to check, or signed up and sucked.  The last one, I thought was reasonably decent, but I never got a callback.  Maybe the 20th time is the charm- or maybe Trebek's just scared of me.  Wussy Canadian.

Or perhaps Alex Trebek, even being the secret ruler of the world*, can't get past that wall we're building, with American money, to keep the Americans out.

He's got nothing to worry about with me. I scheduled a reminder an hour before the 9 pm test time tonight, went to log in 45 minutes early, and found that the start time was 8 pm tonight.

I can still do 9 tomorrow night, but that's during the Mets game, so I'll either have real good or real bad karma.
