I'm thinking of pulling an all nighter to catch up with work and school stuff. Hum.

The last zillion times I've tried this have ended in sleep.

Wuss.

I accidentally pull all-nighters sometimes.   :-\

But I have job interviews this week!  For actual jobs!  I musn't get too sleep-deprived and spazzy.

ISRN, $25/hr sounds pretty okay right about now, and I'm quick with the books.  Should I sign up for that Rice guy's scam?

I'm a weak old man in many ways. Pity me. The siren call of bed is a bit stronger when there's someone else keeping it warm.

do we get more details or no?

What can I tell you that won't completely out me?  Here's something: the jobs are not in NYC and they all probably have an implicit skills requirement that I do not meet.  Oh, well.

Brutal.

...

For the record, my kitties keep (certain portions of) the bed warm.  So there!  Who needs a Rich Exterior Life?  Not ME!

Just relaying personal experience. Sorry. Kitties are good at that. Anyway, it makes me weak (like I said).

I never fronted a REL. I just go to school, work, and play on the computer most of the time.

I still like my ethics class.  I'm pretty sure I'm the only one who ever said that at my school.  Also, the prof made fun of me today, which made me laugh, and then I wondered if it went both ways.  He's cool enough.  It might.

I really enjoy House Hunters. 

It's a good substitute for Golden Girls on nights Lifetime thinks I actually want to watch Rita Rocks.

how do you do it?

well, it's all discussion-y, so I jump in.  And I don't really know any of this stuff so it's educational.  also, we tend to discuss "problems" with ethics and i like fixing problems.

for instance, tonight we talked about that guy in prison for a murder he didn't commit and the guy who did confessed to his attorneys, but they couldn't say anything b/c of privilege and the risk of opening their client to more liability.  So, they didn't.  While I have no issue with their decision as they were, indeed, following their professional code, my thought was that as a public policy we have an interest in "justice."  I also have a personal interest in making sure that productive people are out there being productive, rather than sitting away in jail so I get to pay to support them.

I offered a solution that essentially guaranteed the confessors immunity when confessing to a crime, but the attorney was free to disclose if another was wrongly accused (trial, etc.)  Since we're really just worried about clients telling their attorneys stuff, we would then be able to further support that behavior.  There are, of course, problems with this, but still.
