Changing it up a little
What a long week! It's still not over, but I'm taking a much-needed breather. Though I'm of the mind that Work is not blog fodder, I'll bend the rules a little for a second. The case I've been managing went into serious downtime while waiting for a judges' ruling, so I had to scramble to find work for awhile there. For most people running out of work is great, but for me, no billable hours means no paycheck.
I yelled out and my echo came back in the form of a ginormous case that might be the example in the acronym dictionary for FUBAR. The managing paralegal is taking a four month leave, so he asked if I would take over. It's good in a way, because I get to meet more people in the firm (exposure), get lots of overtime hours, and have been learning many new things. On the other hand, did I mention the hours? And the fubar part? Right. I'm actually managing other people here, including permanent employees, and hiring my own temps...so all that is a little amusing to me.
At least I have a lovely weekend ahead of me. I'm going to try to get out of here in time to catch a gallery show, then a late dinner at Vidalia for Restaurant Week, including some catching up with the girls. Although I'm as totally sucked into the hilarity that is the Snakes on a Plane hype, I'm afraid that viewing will have to wait until next weekend, you know, when the jokes have totally been beaten into the ground and are screaming for mercy. Still. It has to been seen.
Tomorrow I'm going to take my own advice and go with the roommates out to the Udvar-Hazy Center in Dulles, which is the branch of the Air and Space Museum that has hangars of wicked aircrafts, including the mothereffing test space shuttle. And we're going to totally buck the movie bandwagon trend by going to see Superman Returns at the IMAX. We loved it, so all you haters can eat it.
I'll leave you with some unintentional irony (from Adrian).
