I don't get the wine thing. I mean yes, I understand the fermenting of grapes create wine and everything, and I will drink it (because, as is always brought up among my numerous character flaws, I am a near-alcoholic) but a wine walk?

I mean, you walk, you drink wine.

Isn't that just Friday nights at a New England college anyway?

Sometimes I think the legal world is singlehandedly deforesting the planet.

Depositions need to move to electronic documents sometime in the next decade if we want trees to exist past it.

And in other news, Japan has set the Guinness World Record for the most mascots dancing at one time.

Honestly, watching this feels like a nightmare I had once where this happened, then they proceeded to cannibalize children. ... not a Dream dream, just a 'what the hell did I eat before bed' dream.

So Valarnet.

That was an amazing party, thanks to everybody who came out for it and are probably still recovering like I am. Uh, while I was sort of going back to coherrant, I happened to find a couple things I think belong to some of you...

((OOC: Not really work safe. Features certain...articles of clothing that can be seen as inappropriate to view at work but no actual nudity)) )

So if this belongs to anybody who was there, or you recognize it? Let Us know so we can get it back to you.

Ah, yes, back to the old grind. (Yes, I intended the pun.) The studio is not going to let any of us work in Orange County proper, so they are flying some people to San Fransisco (where I am currently) so we may film in historic places.

I hope I do not get arrested again. Is anyone on here a lawyer? I may need bailing out on a public indecency charge on Tuesday.

Edit; I am very lucky. I accidentally proposed and he said yes. Do not tell me I am stupid for accidentally proposing, I know!

In celebration of, hopefully, everyone's good health....

Harvey and I have decided a party is in order. I'll, of course, update with details later... Once everything's been settled.

Would there be any interest in this sort of thing at all?

I am Harbinger.

Those of you who know me probably know about my club, Child of Leviathan. I know the title is something of a mouthful, but it sticks. I'd just like to remind everyone, in light of this sudden spread of disease, that Leviathan is giving free medical care to any who ask for it. You don't have to sit through sermons or give any donations; our beliefs are based on equality and everyone helping each other.

Yes, we are a religious organisation, but without the usual trappings. We have a very loose doctrine, and you will find no homophobia, no gender prejudice....everyone is free to come along if they wish. Thank you for reading this, and God bless.

Right, so we all have funky dreams, yeah? The kind that bleed over into our days, seem too real to just be dreams, hippy astral projection type dreams?

Okay, so I can't be the only one who was an asshole in those. Was anyone else a bad guy in their dreams? I feel like I should buy a twirly moustache or something, because man. I was a dick.

It’s worrisome, I think, that one could find themselves evicted from their place of stay by coming home to their furniture on the lawn. And my dear love, who I should think not to find myself enamored with any longer, won’t even answer my calls.

I don't know what's worse: His insisting that all of this be gone by tomorrow or the simple fact that everyone has the plague right now. Of all the times to do this to a woman, some men simply have no manners.

I would offer to throw a lawn party because of this... rather creative eviction. But I doubt many would be able to even attend?

I did something horribly stupid and looked at the news. Apparently this thing is just mad, and exploding everywhere.

I'm not worried about myself; I've been holed up at Atton's for a few days now. I'm just ... well, this will sound silly and probably overdramatic, but, well. I'm scared. I don't want t

If there's anything I can do. Give blood or run errands for people or something. Please, do let me know. This bothers me. More than I'd usually admit.

Last night, a variation of two of the dreams I've had, that first one, and the most recent one, kinda melded all together in my head and gave me, maybe not more details but more context. More disturbing context.

Batman guy? If you're still around the way you were this summer? I really don't have any intentions of 'becoming the villian' and shooting you, at random people, or putting them in hostage situations. I don't know what kind of level of fucked up I am in those dreams but they're just dreams, right?

I mean...I can't think of any good reason something like would happen in my sane and rational real life as real as the dreams seem. People just aren't like that, right? Nobody becomes the villain as easily as I said. I mean it's screwed up and there have to be complexities I'm missing but they're not the complexities of here, I'm pretty sure.

It...that's not justice. I couldn't DO that. I don't hate myself because it hasn't happened yet, but I sort of despise dream me for having what looked like everything and succumbing I guess? I'm so confused by what I've gotten so far. I also woke up around four after the second time around with that second dream, where my face was half destroyed and I was insane so I'm tired and really not thinking clearly. I tend to avoid the heavy stuff here for the most part, but...really. I don't get this at all, and seeing what I might become on top of that is kind of baffling and worrying.

How do you people avoid becoming what you see there, if that happens?

I did it. Somehow, through some miracle of whatever power that be that we want to hold responsible, personally I prefer Cthulhu because who doesn't love him and wish to gain enough favor to be eaten first but you try bringing that one up in open court, so we leave it open and say Act Of God there, but never specify which ONE, I managed to pull off Christmas.

There were no fires. No ER visits, no horrible family drama sneaking around to rear its ugly head. It was actually a decent couple of days with family members who I actually don't want to kill, I got books and scotch, and a demented new years eve tie that flashes and plays music, and my house is actually still standing.

I'm kind of amazed it all went off without a hitch.

...I think I'm actually pulling this off. Today I got most of the make ahead stuff for tomorrow night's party actually prepared, while Mom didn't have to do a thing but give me pointers. She offered to help, but you know, defeats the purpose of me throwing Christmas and all, doesn't it? As of right now, I have made several kinds of cookie, gotten stuff ready to throw in the oven tomorrow, and even managed to get ahold of fish that I'm not going to ruin. Mom's side is from Poland and Christmas Eve dinner is traditionally a meatless thing. I know nobody would have cared all that much if I broke it but I wanted to do it RIGHT for once, you know?

There was a Christmas Eve, in law school, when I served them pizza. Homemade though it was, it was kinda a major disaster and I felt bad about it so it's time to make it up and be a grownup, right?

I may, of course, eat my death of shrimp before the meal is served (mild allergy that gives me hives but I'm not smart enough to stay away) but it's going to be amazing all the same.



And then for Christmas DAY, I've managed to not wreck my latest attempt at making gravy and I'm reasonably sure I'll be able to replicate it. Who knew this kind of thing was so easy when you applied yourself/had your mom giving you tips from the living room.

Tomorrow, a couple cousins, a few aunts and uncles, and Richard, who might as well be family, in all the ways that count, are starting to come in. I'm looking forward to not being the screw up host for once. Of course, if Santa Claus could put a girlfriend under the tree too...

So, it's officially tomorrow in most parts of the world, and the Mayans are frauds. That does mean I have to go to work tomorrow, though. Damn.

Harvey, did you pull? I can't even imagine how many people managed to get laid last night. Or this morning.

It occurs to me that this sudden climate shift is possible proof that the world really DOES end tomorrow. What Time Zone is that scheduled to start happening during, again? Because damn, I've got some stocking up to do. The internet informs me tampons are great for more than just women, but to jam into all sorts of wounds, and that I should be picking up toilet paper to sell at a premium.

So, I bought fridge cookie dough and eggnog. If it comes down, you're all fully welcome to swing by my place, where I will be barricaded underneath the table with this treasure trove that I'm sure you all are dying to share in.

Somewhere along the way, I'm also running a trial gravy experiment, and attempting to wrap a bathrobe, scarf, and other hard to handle gifts. Pray for me. I may never return. Of course, provided we die tonight, this is all moot anyway, but I'm hoping I'll be one of the survivors ready to rebuild the human race to all its former glory.

What do you think? Is asking women if they want to repopulate the earth coming on a LITTLE strong in that time of great need? I wouldn't use it otherwise.

Well, probably.

Why is it I always get to defend the thieves who dress as Santa?

Can't I have a red kettle stealer just once this year? A sexy elf wench thief? I've been really, really good.


So, Mom's coming in next week, as in coming HERE and I have no idea what posessed me to talk her into that instead of heading out to her. Does anybody here have catering recs or recipes for idiots?

Best excuses for having a black eye, bruised cheek and bleeding scratches up and down your face?

A one night stand ladyfriend of mine says that gentlemen don't sing in the shower. I say if singing Heart in the shower is wrong, than I don't want to be right.

Also: in an effort to be more social, I was thinking of starting a poker night. For pennies. Don't worry, I won't take you for more than a couple of bucks. Who's in?

I guess it's time to introduce myself on this thing. The name's Selina Kyle and no, whatever you've read about me in the papers is not true. Or mostly not true. It's hard to keep up.

I'm not very good at making new friends and my therapist says an icebreaker gift can work wonders so I've sent out a gift basket to each of you according to your gender. You should have received it today. Try not to worry about how I got your addresses.

I am really going to have to call my mum and make sure she hasn't taken up with some cult. I dreamt last night that she was in a cult religion of some kind with a lot of large horned men. Not horny men, horned. Like, ram horns on the head. And when I wouldn't convert, she sold me to a man.

Definitely not funny. I might have to look into what's giving me these mad dreams.

Is it possible to feel guilty about how well things turn out? I mean everything was pretty shitty until Selina showed up, but now, life is just so good.

I just feel guilty. Not everyone gets pulled out of the gutter like that.

You ever fall asleep at work when you've been awake most of the night going over research and other stuff? Cause I kind of just woke up, and have the home row kind of embedded in my forehead now. I think the mouse is kind of a long shot, since it somehow situated itself in a little puddle of coffee I knocked over, since apparently Maxwell House is now known to not stave off exhaustion.

Your tax dollars at work, Valarnet.

Go figure.

At any rate, that isn't even what I came on here to post about. Just the set up to the weirdness I'm going into next. Sue me for being not exactly eloquent here, I just woke up on my desk.

Those dream things a few of you mentioned? Looks like I'm now a member of that little club. Somewhere I can pick up my membership card?

So. Who here has heard of a Gotham that's probably not the one in New Jersey? Where Bruce Wayne owns restaurants that you have to lie to get into, and brings prima ballerinas to, and I'm some kind of civil servant who compares myself to the appointed officials in the Roman Empire?

That was...weird. And a little uncomfortable. Not as uncomfortable as explaining what just happened to my boss is gonna be...

Okay, so I'm glad I've got a day off this week after all. Maybe I could even use it.

Apparently, Justice Sotomayor was on sesame street to talk about careers. Personally, your chances of becoming a lawyer who makes money are about the same as becoming a princess, even if I do, for one, welcome our future pink and fluffy overlord (overlady?).

Thoughts?

You know, the worst thing in the world for an attorney, at least in this line of law, has to be turning away clients who need your help.

As much as it's paining me to have to come on here and make this clear to the vast internet community, consider this my official moratorium on offering my services for any alleged crimes committed this Halloween.

The only way that I can even use the insanity defense, which so many of you are probably about to argue for, is if I can determine that you weren't able to tell the difference between right and wrong. Now, psychologically, that may be true, a lot of you were clearly in a different mind-frame at the time, but there's no proving that given the evidence and witnesses at hand in a good sixty percent of the cases that have come up.

It isn't that you're wrong, it isn't that I don't believe you, it's not that I don't want to be the guy helping every single person here, it's that I can't prove it for all of you, and the lack of witnesses in most cases doesn't do a lot of good on that front either.

I'm not a quitter. I'm not dumping those of you I'm already working with on this for anything, but I won't be taking on new cases dealing with that specific incident for the immediate future. There's just not enough evidence, and my hands are more than full with something that's already proving to be really tricky while I'm trying to build those cases.

That said, I'm going to have to refer you to someone else I work with if you're bringing one of those in and we haven't already talked. I hate to do that, but it's a lot of cases, when combined with the other ones I'm working on, won't give me the right time to build your case or represent you properly.

My plate is full. It's overflowing. And I've never minded overflowing until it comes to this point where I have to turn some of you away. I know that there are other lawyers here who might advise you, or may have some open case time, but right now? It just can't be me, and I won't compromise you, or the clients I already have just to get more of them moving through. That isn't the guy I want to be, and it's not who I am, and I'm not going to start it now.

If you can stand me after that, then...Hi Valarnet. What do we do for fun here?
