a case of the mondays?

June 9, 2008

As if it weren’t hard enough to get back into reading for Bar/Bri after a four-day break, the power? services? something? in our building went off earlier tonight. Basically, all of the building-central services—cable, the water pump, and general building electricity (elevators, hallway lights, but not unit electricity) just stopped, all of a sudden. I looked out our window and saw two fire trucks right outside the front door of the building and got a little squiffy.

Neither Mr. Angst nor I was content to just switch the TV over to the PS3 and play Rock Band (at least not right away), so Mr. Angst hiked down several flights of stairs to find out what was going on. No one knew what was going on, so he hiked back up the stairs. I cooked dinner, he played on the drums, and we were patient. (Oh, and when I called Comcast to see if we had an outage—I called before we realized the problem was more widespread—I was informed me that our area had had an outage “for several hours” despite my telling the customer service agent several times that we had been WATCHING cable TV only 15 minutes before I called. Sigh.)

Eventually, everything came back on, so we’re watching House and I’m trying to come up with more excuses to NOT read Con Law. (How about, I took it; I took various Con Law-related classes; I have read more Con Law articles over the last year than anyone really should have to . . . . Vote for your favorite excuse in the comments!)

In other news, I made my first in-court appearances today, all by myself (yes, this is allowable under the rule allowing me to practice without a license as a “senior law student or law graduate”). I think both of them went well. One went exactly as it was supposed to and was, if possible, even easier than I thought it would be. The other was . . . not quite smooth sailing, though the result was pretty much what we wanted. Anyway, I got up, held my own, and walked out with good results for my clients. I guess that’s what being a lawyer is all about, so, all in all, it was a good day.
