    I am serious.

    I am a chronic overeater. Every eating episode is generally pretty big. If I limit the amount of times I eat, bingo.

    With my weight idle hands are the devil's workshop. Staying busy is key.

    This is me, too.

    ...

    So, dammit, the only smell worse than 'new fart' is 'stale old fart', and that, unfortunately, is what has pervaded the cushion of my office chair. So, let this be a lesson and learn from Old Thomas here:

    [color=330099]Don't fart in your office chair.[/color]

    It will come back to haunt you, especially when attractive younger ladies are in the room.

    I meant it in a different way. The profession is extemely outdated in a lot of ways and resistant to change, inefficient, etc. Law school itself teaches little or no practical knowledge that is involved in the modern day practice of law, yet more than many other professions, the legal profession is insanely credential conscious, snobby even. You could be a 50 year career veteran and your career bio still mentions what and how you did in law school.

    Meanwhile, eDiscovery and the change to a digital world is having a huge impact on the legal world, but it seems like most firms and the profession are slow if not resistent to change. The current/stop gap situation is an army of underemployed and poorly treated contract attorneys managed by clueless first year associates.

    I realize I am generalizing, but I find the situation insanely frustrating. I realize that in some forms the changes are coming. That said, I think the profession itself is missing an opportunity to be a player in the coming "advancements" and changes. Compared with the accounting profession, which seems to have embraced the dual natured roles that professionals can play, I feel like the legal profession is missing out.

    Maybe I am wrong. What do I know. I'm just a caveman.

    Montgomery County MD has county run liquor stores, with really shitty selection. Maryland bans shipment of liquor. I have to drive out of the county to find decent booze. At least they have a decent bourbon selection, but :fu:

    Same here. I eat breakfast, mid-morning snack, lunch, mid-afternoon snack, then dinner. Breakfast is cereal, snacks are usually raw almonds and fruit, lunch is a couple pieces of fruit, and dinner is meat or fish and veggies.
