It's amazing how quickly I can be messy

I'll quickly describe our trip to SF as "pretty fun". One of the best events that happened there is that I got a call from the Law Society to say that I didn't royally screw up my bar exams, and I can finally be a lawyer (after some stressful paperwork.) Of course, the wedding was nice and everyone had a good time. There were some really rowdy people at the wedding, and for once, it wasn't us! Shocking, I know. I didn't know before that even when there isn't an open bar and even when people don't buy drinks, they will still drink ridiculously, thanks to wine on the tables. Our table went through like five bottles of wine ... not really the bride's intention, but she should have assigned someone to keep an eye on her non-RCAC friends.

Here are a few pictures to entertain you (if they look pixelly, just click to see the full size pic):

Anyway. When I left work in May, my desk was fairly clean - I managed to finish most of my work, or turf it to someone else ... but when I got back, there were a few neat piles of work to do. Hey, no problem, I can keep my desk clean right? WRONG! It's only been three days, but my desk is a disaster again, and at least two files are just sitting on the ground. Ugh. I must get my act together soon, it's becoming embarrassing (not really - but I like neatness.) People really should stop giving me work to do. Haha!

My call ceremony (the formality of being called to the bar) is on September 22. I have the honour of having to wear robes that day. Man, are they expensive... and unattractive :) When I get mine, I will have to post a picture. We've been spending money like it's going out of style. Not good.

hello snerk!
yes indeed, it is a very exclusive restaurant. one customer only! unfortunately, it is not very good.
(although fairly cheap...cheaper than pho).

Hey Yvonne, I didn't know you had a blog, why did you keep this a secret from me? I tracked it down from Greg's ... I just love finding people who have blogs *evil grin*. Guess you'll be hearing lots from me ... hahaha. We're here in ugly Toronto, planning to head down to Boston Sept 3. Just glancing over your posts in the past, I noticed that you despise studying, just think, I gave up work to go study, go figure hey? So, have you ever "been to Boston in the fall", it must be something if Veggie Tales sing about it. Start planning, it can't possibly be as hard as San Fran but then you might be coming with some of the same people, those difficult Lo sisters. Kids do miss Richmond and RCAC and us too. Ciao for now, operative word 'for now' :>.
