Is my Christmas tree up yet? Nope. Which is why we’re re-visiting the Posts of Christmas Past, rather than writing new ones. (Besides, it’s kinda cool to have been hanging ’round the blawgosphere long enough to have a past to re-visit.)
Some of my fond memories include:
- A paralegal gives away 22,000 pounds of chocolate to our troops (like you can keep that much in your desk anyway);
- The worst thing you can possibly get in a holiday gift exchange (‘sides newts);
- Practical Paralegalism gives only the finest chocolate to its staff – and gets its 2009 Christmas card out early;
- Showing the legal staff a little [more] R-E-S-P-E-C-T during the holidays, or no wonder relations between some lawyers and their staff members are a lot like Wendy’s Frosties;
- Grandma so did not get run over by a reindeer;
- Those folks at the North Carolina Bar Association give Elton John some holiday fashion tips;
- A legal assistant who wasn’t charged with embezzlement, but with witchcraft instead;
- Erin Brockovich joining The Paralegal Voice (I was really nervous, and therefore very focused on what to wear during the podcast, like she’d actually see me. Um, yeah, I’m squirrely that way…); and
- Digging for that hidden treasure – the paralegal internship.
While trying to find the perfect image of beautiful chocolate for this post, my Google search (which may be possessed by not-so-benign spirits) comes up with “How to Make Chocolate Reindeer Poop Candy” – I can’t make this up. I didn’t even know that anyone would want to make any kind of chocolate poop candy – ever. I sure as heck didn’t put chocolate poop in the Google query.
If you’re like me, and can’t read the fine print any more due to the rapidly accelerating aging process, the tag on the poop candy reads:
You’ve been naughty
So here’s the Scoop
You’re getting nothing
But Reindeer Poop!
“Little reindeer gifts” – why didn’t I think of that? And this recipe is right up my culinary skill alley; you just throw a bunch of random chocolate together and melt it – or cheat and use chocolate-covered raisins.
