New Judge

My manageing partner and OTHER male coworkers are in a fits about a woman appointed to the High Court. I don't do politics, but I think this is a start for women in the law even if SHE is from a foriegn land.

I have also received a new office with a WINDOW sense one male attorney was fired for spending long lunches wiht a secretary. Summer associates do NOT last long around here. Maybe if we started hiring MALE secretaries there would be more work and less play. And us woman attorneys would not complain.

There is a REASON I have not blawgged in a while. I can adress it later MAYBE.

Peeps Contest LOSS

I did NOT win but will try AGAIN next year. The "winner" had pink peeps with BREASTS if you did not notice. And I am NOT sure what the yellow MAN PEEP is holding between his legs, but it looks like he is THOUROHLY enjoying the marshmellow "peeps." This is more proof that this is a man's world.


Here is MY original writting:

I want to thank FIRST my boyfreind ALAN for the photography work. He is a GENIOUS! This was truly a joint effort. I also want to thank the WOMEN at abajournal for trying to break the "GRASS Ceiling." I thank YOU all -- even Molly McDoughnut. I continue to write on MY blawg about man-dominated firms and the links we must go. My manageing partner does not understand and said I should be FORTUNATE that our firm's not passing out pink slips. I asked why they are not called BLUE slips but he just rolled his eyes.

It is here: http://www.abajournal.com/gallery/single/peeps/164

More man's names firms

My BOYFIREND and me are working on a PROJECT. I have NOT had time to blawg lately.

I have also noticed MORE firms going down with mans' names. Clearly theres a pattern here:

Paul Hastings, Reed Smith, Allen Matkins, Wolf Block, Edward Angell & Palmer Dodge, Clifford Chance, TroutMAN Sanders, and Weil Gotshal. I think Weil is 'Wes' in yiddish.

And the there is Manatt... Never heard of a Womanatt. Maybe that's because it is NOT firing.

Other blawggers will probably steal my original writing. As far as I can tell I am the ONLY Blawgger reportng this right now.

Mans Names Firms

I am not the ONLY one who sees that law firms partners are "mainly dudes." Abovethelaw is now saying this: http://abovethelaw.com/2009/03/news_about_new_law_firm_partne.php

It also says the top women-freindly firms are Dickson Shapiro, Wiley Rain, Andrews Kurth, and Bryan Cave. Maybe you did NOT notice but they all have MENS NAMES! Even when we when we lose.

My manageing partner said all these are firing BIG time and its good we are NOT there: Morgan Lewis, Mayer Brown, Simpson Thatcher, Akin Gump, and the supposed Fried Franks. These all sound like a man's name also. And then there's Orrick, but I thought that was a vacuum company.

I told Alan maybe they need to start naming Firms with woman's names like Lisa Gump or Fran Franks. Alan said they did this for Sallie Mae, but that's not a firm.

Back from BAN #2

I am NOT deseased or on vacation. I was BANNED by Blogger a google subsidary. It is TRUE and I may have a First Amendment actionable cause against them! I know my Blawgs are not "main stream" and maybe abajounral was a instrumental player. After intence negotiations they have let me continue Blawgging. I do NOT know why this happened.

My manageing partner says it may have helpwd with my productivity, and I may not have permission to Blawg from my firm any longer. He says its RES JUDICATA but I do not think so. If this site wil let me, I will Blawg at Lunch when the others are downing scotch at the nearby "club." They have no productivity when they roll in around 1:30, so this may be gender discrimination issue also. My manageing partner says I need to show discriminary INTENT.

We alreayd had TEN layoffs and the pinkslips are poping up every where. My work load has INCREASED too even though they've cut back on the free coffee -- talk about slowing productivity.

ABA Top Blawggers Winners

I have NEVER heard of Edward A. Adams, but aparently he is Director of elections at abajournal.

They just announced the "winners" for the Top 100 Blawgs, and it looks like a RACKET.

MR. Edward A. Adams "instituted a series of checks behind the scenes to make sure only legitimate votes were counted." The NEW totals only have "only votes that were legit."

I guess votes for MY blawgging we NOT "legit."

Here's he's explaination: "You’ll just have to take it on faith that we're capable of determining what a legit vote looks like, and what a bogus one looks like."

Well he also says abajournal disqualifed some votes from over seas computers. So any of my International readers just DO NOT count. This might be Viewpoint discrimination or Nationality discrimination, but I do NOT know.

I wanted you to know that as the Ball dropped last night, Alan gave me a necklace. It was a Saphire necklace, and it is BEAUTIFUL.

We made Resolutions that we WILL keep. We plan to not let work rule OUR lifes, and I know that I will NOT let my manageing partner boss me around. Also I will get my hair done more frequently.

Alan and I wish all our Friends a Happy New Years!
