Happy Turkey Day!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Turkey out.

ADDENDUM: By the way, I didn't pass the NY Bar either. (Not that I was expecting to, based on my MBE score - which I learned from my CT Bar results.) Ah well. February here I come! [11:19 PM]

Whenever I want you all I have to do is dream...

I had a horrible dream last night/this morning. As you may be aware, I didn't pass the Connecticut Bar. The New York Bar results came out this past Friday but I forgot to get my MBE score transferred so I don't know yet whether or not I passed.

Last night I dreamed that I had received a paper in the mail saying I'd passed the New York Bar. In the middle of the dream I can remember thinking something like "wait, this must be a dream!" Then I thought, "but I have this paper that says I passed, right?" And I felt the paper in my hand, reassuring myself that this was indeed happening, that I'd passed the New York Bar. I was very happy. I mean, with my MBE score it was nothing short of a miracle.

Then I woke up. It took me a solid minute or two to realize there was no such paper and I didn't know if I'd passed.

Yay!!! I am now (rather, will be) gainfully employed! I had an interview yesterday afternoon and was extended an offer this morning, which I accepted. I'll be working for a small patent firm located about 10-15 min. from where I'm living. What will I be doing? Writing and prosecuting patent applications, primarily. To be honest, the position is perfect for me. It's a learning position - I will learn all about patent prosecution by doing it. The partners will be overseeing my work and guiding me. The firm itself only has 9 patent agents/attorneys but quite a few big, corporate clients. I start in about 2 weeks. I can't wait!!! Boo-yah!

Yeah, I'm still here. I haven't been posting 'cause, well.. nothing is really going on and I'm fairly laid-back these days. Maybe sometime I'll pick up this blog again, get into regular posting again. For now... it's probably not going to happen.

But I do want to post a quote I just heard on The Drew Carrey Show:
Priest: Oh Drew, you could come to the Christian Singles Night. Lewis is always there.

(Priest leaves, Drew turns to Lewis)

Drew: Christian singles night, eh?

Lewis: Oh and you would prefer some loose, drunken woman in a smoke-filled bar? Well so would I but that didn’t work so it’s on to Plan B.
I couldn't resist. Cheers!
