A Little Update

Here's what's going on:

Working hard. Lots of cases. Each more serious than the next. And even when they're not that serious, the prosecutor likes to treat them like they're serious. Which makes my life tougher.

I'm trying to take some time off over the summer, enjoy the weather a little bit, take a few days off. It's tough, because I could work 24/7 and still not get everything done that I need to do, but I guess you've got to give yourself a break sometimes.

I've made a few new friends in my office, which is fun. One weird thing is that there's some weird unfriendliness by some people in my office. I guess maybe it's competitiveness or insecurity. Anyway, it's somewhat uncomfortable. And unnecessary. We're all playing for the same team, what do we accomplish by bringing hostility into the office? Besides making our own lives a little tougher than they need to be?

I found $11 cash on my way to my pedicure this morning. I actually have a case right now where the police planted "stolen" property, waited for someone to pick it up, and then arrested him. It's pathetic that there isn't enough real crime, the police have to manufacture some. Or maybe investigating real crime would be too much work. Anyway, I picked up the $11 and made a big show of turning around on the empty sidewalk, holding up the cash, saying aloud, "Anyone drop this? Anyone lose this? I don't see any police around to whom I can turn it in. I don't see anyone around who might have dropped it." Then I stuck it in my bag and walked off. No SWAT teams stormed the pedicure place, so I think I'm in the clear.

It's cool because a few weeks ago, I lost a few things, so I feel like I got some karmic payback.

Anyway, that's what has been going on. I'm going to try to see a movie this weekend, maybe Harry Potter, try to get my relax on a little bit, not work from home at all.

Hope you're all having a good weekend too.
