Oh Christmas Tree...

I wasn't very good at taking pictures of my eats this weekend, because I was sick in bed for most of it. I did get out of bed to decorate our Christmas tree. It looks a lot nicer in person, but here it is....


Some more decorations...

And as I was wrapping presents I snacked on this PB Larabar...the penguin looks so happy to be holding a Larabar :)

While I was home sick last Friday a partner called my cell phone to let me know my yearly review is on Monday. This is my first review and I am terrified. So keep your fingers crossed for me!! Hopefully I'm not so sick tomorrow, because I won't be able to handle criticism and sickness at the same time.

Our Rx for a speedy recovery is a bit of humor, and we prescribe indie music label LawTunes' (http://www.LawTunes.com) unique CDs of humorous, lawyer-created, law-related rock-and-roll songs: "Merry Lexmas From The Lawtunes," "The Lawyer's Holiday Humor Album," "Legal Holidaze," and "The Lawtunes: Live At Blackacre." Composed and produced by a practicing litigation attorney, the original and upbeat songs incorporate a broad spectrum of rock-and-roll styles and are chock full of the finest legalese. Plus, after playing the CDs several thousand times, lucky recipients can then use them as convenient coasters for mugs of black coffee during all-nighters working in the office. Songs include "It's Gonna Be A Billable Christmas," "Rainmaker Reindeer," "Hey, Santa, I Appeal," "North Pole Bar Exam," "I Got A Footnote In My Stocking," "We're All Just Elves," "Ridin' On A Red-Eye With Santa On Christmas Eve," and many more. They take on the law, lawyers, and legal practice in a hilarious, but positive, way. LawTunes' albums are dedicated to the proposition that lawyers' zealous representation of clients and furtherance of the public good can be only enhanced by a healthy willingness of lawyers to poke fun at themselves appropriately on occasion. They contribute to the effort to make people think a little differently about lawyers, and show that attorneys are not necessarily humorless, boring, or incapable of self-deprecation. Further information and sample clips are available at http://www.LawTunes.com. Thanks again and feel better.

I just had my first annual review (I am a litigator). The horror!

I hope they took note of those 6 to midnight hours you were putting in!
I'm sure it went great, but remember -- law firms know to cover their butts and include some obligatory (and possibly artificial) negative comments.
