Creature of Habit

Work continues to be brutal.  It's non stop.  It's been over three weeks since I've had a day off.  After working this weekend, I'm on pace to bill a solid 245 hours in June.  That's "billed," not "worked."  The latter number would be closer to 300.  I've got a two day mediation scheduled for June 1-2 in D.C.  Hopefully, after that, things will slow down . . . at least a bit.  They better, because I'm scheduled for vacation beginning June 3rd.

I had been planning a trip to Vegas for nine days.  But, given the way things were going, and given that my client is located in Vegas, I started thinking about just going off the grid for a bit.  So, I booked a trip to Aruba.  But, then, Lightning began blowing up twitter and texts with chip porn and stories from his recent trip to Vegas.  And, suddenly, Vegas started sounding good again.  I wavered back and forth between Aruba and Vegas almost daily.  Finally, this morning, while taking a brief break from, well, brief-writing, I logged on to my MLIFE account and discovered I had 5 free nights at Aria.  Jackpot!  Decision made.  Aruba cancelled.  I mean, who needs Zika anyway?

So, I'll be getting in to Vegas Friday June 3rd, and staying at Aria through Tuesday.  Then off to Signature for 4 more days before leaving Sunday June 12th.  Unless, of course, I end up having to cancel.  Which, given past history, will likely be the case.  But, in the meantime, it's fun to think about 9 days in Paradise, Nevada.

  2. Are you flying to DCA or BWI on the trip home? I think you'll be on either my wife's flight or my friend's flight. Regardless, we'll get involved in some hooliganism since our time out there will overlap :-)!

  5. 61 billable hours per week? That seems insane. Is there an expectation as to how many billable hours you're supposed to bill? That seems incredibly high.

    I'm going to assume 3/4 of those hours are for Tony's mega-millions class action law suit...

    s.i.
