Today has been a nothing day. AN absolutely nothing day. I read some of your PB entries (it was nice catching up); I returned calls; and since the Administrative Assistants aren’t here today… I...


In a previous entry; a reader asked me about lawyer pay and billing and I started writing a note that would have been an aggressively long note. So here it is in Entry form and… if people read a...


So… I’ve tried to stay busy at work. 6 minute intervals and pushing to get paid. But it hasn’t been easy; or panning out well. I’m still lucky if I get more than 4 hours; and I’m averaging clo...

OUCH in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

I never NEVER NEVER thought I would say this: but I’m starting to think that moving was a mistake. Last night, my body was trashed. I felt like I was severely broken. I couldn’t get to sleep an...

Mother... in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Karma is everything. I had nothing to do yesterday. Today I had 3.1 billable hours. Of course; it certainly FEELS like I should have more than that. My bosses arrived at 10:00 this morning. But ...

Slowly I am in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Okay, can’t take it. Going crazy slowly I am. Yesterday… well, yeah, might as well give the whole of it. Yesterday, the commute to work took 55 minutes (usually takes 30) so it wasn’t a good st...


This morning I had an arraignment. Lovely man; hope I can help him. That took about a half hour. As I was leaving court; Chinese Boss calls and asks me to pick her up from her home. After the...

Not New in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

This isn’t a new entry. This is the continuation of the last one; I guess. BEcause… I still can’t get over it. Immigration Law is difficult. Especially when you’re trying to juggle cases of Cr...


Thanks for the Birthday Greetings, friends! Last Night… semi-okay? Went to go work at home; got some research and studying done. THEN got a call at 5 from the bosses checking to see if I was st...


Saturday is Free Comic Book Day. To celebrate; I hope to take Wife to the Local Comic Book Shoppe and then we shall attend Guardians of the Galaxy 2. Friday is Cinco De Mayo. No promises and no...


There are certainly some things that still bother me about this job. AND… if I look back at this post in one year’s time and these things still bother me… I should take that to mean something si...


This morning I woke up and felt like a metaphorical arrow was in my chest. Not pain, at least not pain in any perceivable increased way as to my usual pain, but something more existential. Do yo...

May Day in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Happy May. It is rainy and cold here. Not a great way to start May. Today is expected to remain very rainy and get “as warm as” 47 degrees F. But the rest of the week looks good, so here’s h...

Weekend in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

After work on Friday, I went back home to shower and grab my bags. It took a while and set me behind actually a few hours more than anticipated. I got on the road and texted my buddy my expecte...


Last night, I was informed that I would have to go with Chinese Administrative Assistant (CAA) to the Ames office to interview a client and try to get a contract. The proposed client is screwed ...

Zgrnsg in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Fuck, I’m tired. I woke up at 3 this morning. Went back to sleep. Woke up at 5:50 this morning. Went back to sleep. Woke up at 7 and had to move my ass. I shower, I dress, I go to kiss my s...

Snappy in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

This should be quick. (1) Woke up on time… but..................... Nope. This won’t be quick. Never mind. I’ll do the quick part, then I’ll rehash a long part, then that’ll be it. So… here’s ...

Busy Work Day? in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Got in to work today; already had an assignment on my desk. A potential law suit in the range of $487,000 for our client. A client who is in to Rare Earth stuff. So… lots of issues abound. It ...


A few years ago; it became public knowledge that Australia banned Pornography featuring women with breasts smaller than a C cup. The reasoning behind this was, officially, that pornographic mate...


From 8:30 to 11:08 am; I have been working relatively well. That is a grand total of 2 hours and 38 minutes (or 2.6 hours from Law Firm Perspective) and I’ve accumulated 1.7 hours of billable ti...


Today… I got to be more busy. Hooray! Always good. Studied some stuff, drafted some stuff. Granted… it never seems to correlate properly. A solid 4 hours of work translates into 2 hours of b...


I write this with the intent that it takes two days. Partly because my life has become more “mundane” so as not to require the daily; but also because… it feels important or necessary. Not that...


The barometric pressure of the local area is crazy. We’re expected to get severe storms, tornado warnings, and a cold front slamming into a warm front. Or as the weather dude said: Highs in the...

Hya in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Ow. I woke up this morning in super sore shape. I got up, though, showered, and left… typically, from when I left, I’d get to work a good 15 minutes early! Total gridlock on the road. Get a tex...

Monday 17 in Ichi-no-Tani 2017

Good morning all! I hope everyone had good weekends and, for those that worship, excellent Easters. My weekend was… rather full, sadly. Omaha on Saturday and Easter all Sunday so… really not r...
