The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
Or Why No One Will Eat Lunch with Me
(i think i might have used this one before…)
Yesterday, it was raining and freezing (high 68 degrees). Today, it was raining and steaming (high 80 degrees). I’m not even interested in my closet these days. I’m mostly concerned that my feet stay dry.
For those of you new to Practical Paralegalism, Budget Bucky (for realsies) is a fully articulated plastic human skeleton who lives in my office. (No way was I leaving him behind in the recent move). He was originally purchased as a trial exhibit, only the case settled, and he’s had to settle for providing endless entertainment for everyone in the office.
Okay, maybe only me. Only I was not the one that put plastic eyeball glasses on him, and then snuck away like a thief in the night. (You know who you are.)
Anyhoo, I don’t have enough trouble dressing myself on a budget that I decide I need to dress Budget Bucky, too. But I start small, with hats. Partly because Bucky has a really small head.
The green furry hat was a hit, but this straw wonder causes peeps to wonder…what it is. If it is a religious icon, I am so, so sorry in advance. What the heck was it doing on the $1 hat rack at Goodwill? We’re hoping it’s a child’s party hat. But would be secretly beside ourselves with joy if it did have great cultural significance, but didn’t offend anyone at the same time. I’ve labeled it “Undecided” (American presidential election year, international friends), and the other senior paralegal in the office has labeled it “Ele-ass”.
So, what do you do for fun when you get a 15-minute break at work?
