This and that for idle readers

Some law firm has decided to carry the Blackberry dispensation too far. One Orkut-girl interning there got a Blackberry. She was saying what fun playing Bricklayer and all then I realized she got Blackberry coz she was made to pose as senior associate which meant she was trained in orientation to not make notes furiously on notepad while discussion was going on as freshers do as if it is the lecture of a star-professor.

Anyway this Orkut-girl has now added me as fan to her Orkut but now I am insecure about being seen so much on Orkut coz it shows noone from my class has invited me to Facebook which has arrived in India after it has lost cliquey popularity in US which it had around 2004. Don't know when Friendster will arrive- the Original social networking "tool" of 2003 which has now been replaced by MySpace etc. See how cool I am to know about American trends in fact I am doing 2-3 Overseas Direct Investment deals also ofcourse those are tiny companies but good for glamour value but wish they were not of drainage pipes and other contraction-type of things but in entertainment, online space instead. Note use of space as cool adjective used by VC types to say we are too smart to understand this industry it's just numbers anyway which are fungible.
I am rambling so you must be severely underemployed to be reading this that too on Friday evening when everyone is free and wild enough to officially get online and chat without feeling so much guilty.

Whoever is the owner of this blog, i have a strong hunch that its no lawywer with a law firm but a moonlighting journalist who's dad's a lawyer.

I am a lawyer, i cant believe that you got so much spare time to read, reply and maintain a blog while at the same time draft legal documents, sit on conference calls, research, negiotiate with clients and yet have time to gossip.... wonder which law firm is this you work in son and frankly i really dont care, because my guess is you in some outsourced sweat shop research firm based in Gurgaon.

Please stop insulting the profession, you make it sound decadent with mention of blackberry's, iPODS, fancy talk and decrapped terminology.

Get yourself a life son, before its gets too late and you join the tax practice of a law firm instead of a tax firm as a research executive.

the profession is getting decadent by the hour...what next, interview requests from linklaters to those applying for admission at NLS

or free Manupatra access from the time you were conceived...

Reality is this that people became lawyers when they could not do anything constructive with their minds and decided that the 'frog-in-the-well' and 'grapes-are-sour' atitude was the way to go.

Get a life, join the army and get slaughtered..that way the world will be rid of slime...and yet you will feel honoured...

Dear Madam,

since you have decided that you shall take potshots at me let me tell you that even if you've done it on purpose, please dont confuse chinese food and bye-bye.

'chow' and 'ciao' are different, just like maggi sauce.
