The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
I wasn’t really dressed for that activity. I was also too proud to ask for help, since I’m supposed to be the tech-savvy one. So I dusted the floor with my burgundy-covered butt, and broke the three remaining fingernails I have left trying to pry the bolt covers off to adjust the tension.
Those bolt covers needed pliers. And a man. Dammit.
I give the Kensington Snaplock Keyboard Tray a two thumbs up except the “uses no tools” part.
I want to give a shoutout to my friend Rebekah Harman from Legalis, who stopped by the office with a giant box of chocolate chip cookies. Rebekah was rocking a bright green skirt with a white short-sleeved shirt, having wisely decided to stick to her summer wardrobe, while I stubbornly stomped around in tights, like that rebellious act of winter-dressing would make it cooler than 84 degrees outside.
Shoutout to the man in Rebekah’s office who reads my blog. Not for the pre-owned fashion. ‘Cause I’m hilarious. (Right. Oh. God. The Pressure.) But I’m all up for guest posts from men who are stylin’ office wear on a budget. (Sorry, this is the wrong blog for Armani, unless you found it at Goodwill.)
Oh, and shoutout to my lovely, lovely friend, Ally, who is sending me the coolest present in the world. Now that I’ve seen it unwrapped already, I may expire from excitement. I have taken to asking the receptionist every five minutes if the mail is here and did I get anything.
P.S. Bloggers and readers, I hope you’ll submit a picture of yourself for my Goodwill Goldmine Party post. As long as the item(s) you’re wearing came from a not-for-profit organization store, you’re in! Please send the pic and a short description of the Goodwill (or charity, non-profit, or mission shop) item(s) to firstname.lastname@example.org by October 1.
