We just returned from a long weekend in Hot Springs Village with Colin, Dave, and Kyu Chan. Here's some pics....

P.S. Here's a special thanks to Eric for the Diamante hook up.

You know what I don't get? Quite often whenever I mention my long distance running (usually in response to an inquiry), I am met with some sort of quick reply about how bad my knees are going to be some day. Not "that's great you're dedicated," or "it must be cool to run that far," or even "wow, nice work."

Instead, I'm greeted with, "You probably won't be able to walk when you're in your mid-thirties."

I just don't understand it.

Here's a quick shot at posting on the go. This is only a test.

Well, this blows my theory (and just about everyone else's) right out of the water. I was very suprised by Rehnquist's announcement, particularly in light of his having served on the Court during Douglas' demise.

Get ready for some contentious confirmation hearings after Bush appoints O'Connor's successor.

The firm recently gave all the attorneys BlackBerries. At first I was apprehensive -- who wants a 24 hour connection to the office? But now that I have the tiny gadget, I'm really enjoying it. It's amazing having everything--email, calendar, contacts, cell phone, web access--all in one handheld device. I had a Palm Pilot a few years ago, but I never really got that much use out of it. Already, I can tell the BlackBerry will be different.

This is interesting. Seems Kevin Griffin's got a successful second career as songwriter for other artists.

Here's my plug for BTE -- buy "Before the Robots" today.

The past two weeks have been very exciting and enjoyable (and busy) at work.

First, I worked with another associate to obtain a temporary restraining order enjoining several defendants from foreclosing on three different multimillion dollar nursing homes owned by our client.

Second, I made my first solo appearance in a Dallas court and acquired a writ of sequestration commanding the constable to seize and sequester my client's property from a former employee who was refusing to turn it over.

Third, I successfully evicted an extremely disruptive tenant from government assisted housing after a contentious two and half hour hearing. And yes, the tenant was represented by counsel.

Fourth, the Texas Supreme Court denied the petition for review in a case that the Fort Worth Court of Appeals had reversed in favor of our clients on appeal.

All in all, it has been a fun time to be an attorney.

It's 5:30 a.m. on one of my precious days off from work.

What the hell am I doing awake?

I'll give you one guess....

On a related subject, I've never experienced a runner's high. Through multiple marathons, countless training runs, and other races of varying lengths, I have not once experienced this so-called phenomenon. In fact, my favorite part of any run is the point at which I finish.
