Two bits of news

#1 - I got sworn in this week, Tuesday to be exact. Thanks to my friend who is a notary - she really made it sweet, brought in cookies and everything, and we did it at study group with my friends around. Good times... now to scrounge up $22.

#2 - Just a funny (?) story. I know anxiety levels are high for those of you awaiting the California bar results, but I still want to share this story. A friend of mine took the WA bar. Results came back - maybe it's been three weeks ago now. So they post them online and you look for your name. She went online the day they were posted and her name wasn't there. She freaked out of course and was all bummed. You know what happened? They had accidentally left off like 100 names from the list - apparently people who were living out of state. Can you imagine?! Talk about intentional infliction of emotional distress!! Poor girl - she's recovered now.

Negligent infliction if anything...I sincerely doubt they "intended" to leave 100 names off the list...

That's terrible. I wonder why they don't just post an affirmative message that you failed.

Are you kidding me? The bar examiners? Of course it was intentional!! Just kidding - you got me... you were that kid on your high school's debate team weren't you...

So. Did you swear at your swearing in? It seems appropriate, given the name.

Either way, I think I'll be swearing on Friday.

Again, congrats!

I was totally not on the debate team in high school. Those people are dorks! The cooler kids were in the chess club. Thanks for your kind words btw.
