Yes, I'm alive and actually doing quite well. I've been VERY busy at work. In fact, this is the busiest stretch I've ever had, at this or any other job. 12, 14 hour days, every day, and I've been putting in quite a bit of time over the weekend as well.

I also don't see this changing any time soon as the schedule in the case I'm on is expedited and aggressive. Plus, a lot of traveling should be in my near (and mid-term, and distant) future.

That said, I'm really enjoying the work. Very exciting, lots of action, constant battling over this and that. It's tiring and often stressful, but at its core it's what I signed up for when I got into litigation. I'm starting to get to the point where I'm senior enough that the amount of real "lawyering" starts to balance all the busy work, the shit work, the hierarchical stuff, and all the hours. We'll see how it keeps going.

We will keep visiting! We've missed your economic posts, though...and now there's the health care debacle. Maybe we'll try to sober-up over at ATK and pick up the slack.

Glad to hear that things are going great with your job, especially during these economic times.

Let me know if your travels ever bring you to Orange County.

Here's to all the real lawyering you can handle!

Glad you're okay. Be very considerate of Mrs. Mike's feelings. Mrs. WFTA died on June 7 from adreno-cortical cancer. She was 52. There is nothing I wouldn't give for another 28 years with her.

WFTA - My god, I'm really sorry to hear that. I hope you have people to spend some time with.

How are you doing, all things considered?

All thing considered, I'm doing okay. Probably should not have brought it up in your comments section, but since you're my best buddy on the whole world-wide-web, I thought you ought to know.

It is a tremendous sadness, but also a tremendous relief. It has been a time of great discovery, but discovery not yet reconciled and cataloged. I only know for sure that I'll never have to do anything this hard again.

And thanks. I know you mean it.

Busy is always a good thing. Hang in there, and most importantly, remember to make good eye contact. That's key.

Mike: Busy is good, especially during a recession.

WFTA: I'm sorry for your loss. I hope the healing process is swift.
