The Blog Formerly Known As Practical Paralegalism
This is my annual re-print of The Post In Which I Find Out that My Patron Saint Didn’t Even Get Me the Day Off. (If he thinks imbibing copious amounts of alcohol will make me forget my outrage, well, he’s bloody right.)
I feel like such a fool. Here I am, descended from a long line of red-headed Irish Catholics (lapsed), running around in my green dress all day (which really complements my Red-Straight-from-a-Bottle-Because-I-Got-Cheated-in-the-Genetic-Lottery hair) – and not afraid to use my big old black metal stapler as a lethal weapon in case someone tries to pinch me.
American paralegals are also traditionally honored on St. Patrick’s Day, and many employers give paralegals and legal assistants an exemption from work on March 17 so that they can celebrate the day of their patron saint.
