Uh...little help please...you know, for those of us not schooled in the law or Latin...

Not even a little "pig" Nigel? Basically, blogging and billable hours don't mix, i.e. she doesn't get paid for doing this shit.

"Blogus et billabae horae non mixerae est."

True, but you love it anyway, right? ;)

Do what I did: use the big firms for the learning opportunity and after, say, 25 years, when you think you're ready, go out on your own and resume blogging. Who knows if we will even have blogs in 25 years. Maybe there will be a mental cyberspace that does not require computers or Al Gore's internet, on which we blog by direct thought.

Blog and billable hours is not mixing. No, they is not--but vivir est blogare.

All work and no play makes Annie a dull girl.

You can record the billable hours and still blog and have a life. Moderation in all things is the key to a happy life.

So, here's the path you need to take - trial lawyers die young, because billable hours are everything. Find a specialty where you can bill for results and for your knowledge and don't have to rely on billable hours in order to achieve maximum compensation. Environmental is popular now, and looks good for the duration, but there are even subspecialties, like water, air, fuel, etc. Bankruptcy is cyclical, but really rewarding in this environment. Employment law (best from management side) is another good one. Or, become a house counsel and get stock options.

You get the idea. Remember, you find time to do what you want to do.

Omnia vivre in tres partes divisa est.

Amen. But shoot I'll buy a subscription! In fact, I'll setup a toll free number that you can call and I'll ogg vorbis to text for you. You can donate the subscription money to a needy cause. I'll even help you find one.


Just let me know know where to send the drachmas.

Fresh from his success with Britney, Dr. Phil would like to help you sort through your priorities so that you might achieve happiness and fulfillment through blogging.

Actually, I was taling about the pussies who lost to Illinios, and then took a SECOND, back-to-back crushing in the National Championship. (How embarassing; 31 unanswered points. Woody flipped over in his grave)

But have no fear, the game of the year in the 2008 season may be the first one.

Like I said, Pete will be ready, will Jim?

Get you tickets early; it will be a sellout.

First ya gotta get there, bitch. That means you have to be able to beat Stanford.

On a very young team, that was supposed to finish third in the Big Ten, we've lost one Jr to the NFL, Vern Gholston. You better cowboy up for September.

Someone would have to be paying attention to see how the thread above makes any sense.

Go Chargers!

Posted by: Joules on Jan. 16, 2008

Hell, we're already ready.

Trying to decide on which of the three outstanding QB's to go with and which of the five deep other positions we need to cut.

And, of course, there is always the entering class in which we out-recruit everyone but the USMC.

It's gonna be a very good year; can't figure out why we are only rated #2 preseason.

My guess is that the insiders know about your impending NCAA violation announcement.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 17, 2008

That flag is not going to be thrown. It is an OSU - UCLA - Notre Dame - Florida - LSU rumor that they use to discourage prospects from going to USC.

Tressel should concentrate on not getting his ass kicked around in BCS Championships and quit circulating false rumors about pete Carroll.

Don't worry, Pete has kids camped out on his doorstep waiting for 2009 and 2010. No reason to violate NCAA rules.

Worry about this September. Bring stretchers.

Gimme a break! Bush and his family take hundreds of thousands from an agent while he's in school, and the NCAA is going to pretend nothing happened? Oh yeah, that's the way you guys roll. You can't spell Trojan without OJ.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 19, 2008

Carroll and USC did nothing to warrant suspension; they could take away the titles, I assume, but who will that help/punish?

I'd take away Reggie's Heisman; now, that makes the punishment fit the crime, no?

Posted by: shelly on Jan. 20, 2008

The universities are supposed to be self-reporting. You can't tell me that USC's compliance guy didn't know, and if he didn't he should have. That's where the program is culpable. I'm not saying that's justice, but those are the rules, and I know how lawyers like rules.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 20, 2008

People don't need lawyers to tell them how to follow the rules, they can do that themselves; they need us to tell them how to get around the rules, or use them to advantage.

Ergo, we LOVE rules.

Posted by: Shelly on Jan. 20, 2008

That's why, if my ass was in a crack, I'd hire you. Trojan that you are.

Posted by: Casca on Jan. 20, 2008

Actually, I am both a Bruin and a Trojan. But, after Red Sanders died, the Bruins never had a program. The list of coaches can make you barf. The worst of course were Pepper Rodgers and Terry Donahue.

Then I was on the Coliseum Commission for almost eight years and could never get the Chancellor to talk aobut returning to play there, he was so pissed at being dissed by the Commission before I was appointed.

So, I root for both, except when they play each other, and then it is USC all the way.

Be grateful you have (1) a job and (2) a license.
