Life Lessons Learned by Loofah

'Is this life moving too slow or too fast?
'Should we be so eager to separate ourselves from our past?
'Should we be among the sated or the one who contends?'
The echo off the perfectly tiled walls rings truer than the broadcaster intends.
Uneven cascades of water bemuddle every nth syllable,
Distorting even more the elusive moral of this parable.
'Is it true that "like sand through the hourglass, so are the days of our lives"?
'Or can we hope that by some gorgon's head the sand can paralyze?
'As the clock continues to turn, our wick continues to burn,
'Neither slowing, oblivious to what we yearn.
'Knowing, as we do, that the constant of time will remain true,
'Would it not be folly to disregard the perks of acceptance to you?
'To disregard the facts and pretend that your life is left to chance,
'Will only ensure your inevitable position in an uncertain happenstance.'
For a moment it seems as though steam has clouded my mind as well as vision,
Then through the mist comes clarity, an onward approaching apparition.
Eagerly awaiting further oration, I cautiously pause my loofah activities.
'We should concede to the circumstances of our existence with all our abilities.
'It is not wrong to be mindful of death's premonition,
'But it is to life that you make this beautiful concession.'

"I know I can barely hide it, I know I am so excited!"

Saw Dead Confederate tonight. There was only about 40 to 50 people there, but they rocked it pretty well. I recommend seeing them if possible.

Can you spot the 64 point word?

Hint: it was played before trout.

Extra hint: the blank is an "S"

October update

I'm sure it's been a while since I posted, but deal with it. I thought having the pearl would make it easier but that doesn't seem to be the case. Anyway, it's October and Pooper had his birthday. He's 48 or something. Fantasy football is being cruel to me. I'm glad it's colder. That's about it. I'll make another statement about how I'll update and send more photos, but we'll see.

Taxman

As you read the title of this post you might wonder: is he referencing the worst Beatles song ever written, or is he talking about his new paying occupation?

Yes, as anyone who would be reading this blog (and if that is you then you are truly in an exclusive class) probably knows already (who doesn't love redundancy?), I have been hired by the glorious Republic of California to make sure people pay their taxes in this time of need. Pay is pretty poor for a lawyer (public sector...), but certainly decent enough to make a living (I might actually be able to afford beer with graphics on the can). We'll see how it pans out; I'm pretty content with the whole ordeal, actually.

As a final reminder: Taxman is the worst Beatles song ever written.

Lawyer'd

Sworn in on Monday, guess that means I'm in.
This conversation is confidential.

Passed the Bar

As anyone reading this probably knows already, I did pass the California State Bar. I am pretty excited that that hurdle is over. I will be sworn in June 6th. Then you all can try to weasel free California-based legal services from me.

I really have missed my goal of updating this at least once a month. Hopefully I'll be kicking it up a notch here.

Freedom!

Linux has been good to me, and I to it.

Here's video to go check out. I don't want to embed all these videos in my blog and turn into some 2nd hand vlog (although that'd be a good name for a used item store, perhaps).

No more Windows for this sad man

Well now I've done it. I somehow became too close and personal with some crappy spy/adware demon named softwareprotector. Avoid at all costs. I seem to have gotten it, from all places, by looking at a pdf on a green energy website detailing how to make a personal wind generator. That's what I get.

Anyway, I just did an entire reformat and reinstall since the system was getting worse and worse. Hopefully this had made my hard drive more sterile than free hypodermic needles from the city. I am now running Linux (and yes, I am just a poser, but at least it looks like I'm putting forth an effort).

http://www.ubuntu.com

This is what I'm using. It works pretty well (after 1 day of use). I only had to pop into my Bios for one little fix concerning my wireless card and most everything else has been working swimmingly. We'll see if it sticks.
