6 hour CLE

Today I had to attend "Practicing with Professionalism," a six hour mandatory CLE to gain entry to the CO bar. It wasn't bad, but there was lots of "don't sleep with clients," "you'd be surprised how easily an attorney-client relationship forms," "don't be negligent." Things I spent a semester and more learning.
I'm feeling more settled in Denver. I have a daily routine worked out that involves job hunting, networking, working out, watching tv and grocery shopping. I'm hoping once bar results are out in a week that the job search will be a little bit easier...

How many rings is he wearing?

Sunday night I went along with a few people to an open mic night/poetry slam. Having never been to one before, I did not know what to expect. I was very impressed with the open mic in general. Several people were very good, including a 70 year old grandpa who cursed like a sailor and a 20 year old wannabe gangsta with the voice of an angel. We left before the poetry slam -- it cost ten bucks and was a special youth edition. I didn't think I could handle a bunch of 16 year old emo kids expressing how dark and meaningless their lives were.
However, I think the highlight of the evening would have to be WizardMan! An older gentleman, wearing blue velvet robes, complete with gold rope sash. He had a full white beard and wore four giant rings on each hand. He was passing out cards that advertised his tarot readings in the red room. He might have overtaken Heebel's dragon ring. :)

And back again

I'm back in Denver after ten days at home. Not the best news, but the expected news. Still waiting to hear what the treatment will be for Dad. He's in good spirits, except when the Irish lost yesterday. :)
I got to see a bunch of my Atlanta friends while I was home and spend lots of quality time with family. Karl came up from Orlando for a week and Tia was in town for several days as well.
Now that I am back in Denver, I have to work on finding a job. Blargh. I am very tired of all the emailing, networking, etc. Hopefully, it will pay off. At least it's a beautiful day!
