Excuses and snippets

This morning I had to pull out the attorney gear and belatedly remembered that I got rid of most of my suits, which were out of style, in January. I’d planned to buy more, but suit shopping reminds me of lawyering. So I never got around to it.

Now I’m wearing a cobbled-together, semi-professional looking thing, and I’m off to one of these lawyer-y conferences that my job occasionally requires me to attend.

Some items you may wish to view until my return (which may be soon, or may not be until Monday):
