It sounds like the beginning of a bad joke.
(And yes, Tracy, given that you had already passed the bar (yay!) at this point, even though we didn't know it yet, I am grouping you in with the lawyers. For better or worse, right?)
We met at Cafe Asia in Arlington, to see Meredith while she was briefly in town for the Penn State game.
She is smiling because Penn State won, of course. Mere is a JAG (Judge Advocate General) in Florida now, so it was a treat to get to see her back in the old GMU Law stomping grounds.
It was also fun to look around the table and see that each of us is doing such interesting and varied things with our respective JDs. Like I said, Meredith is a JAG, while Tracy (next to Mere) is a Presidential Management Fellow negotiating government contracts. Brett (below right) is a contract attorney for a firm in DC (which basically means she works from like 6 in the morning to 10 pm every day), and Erika (next to Brett) works for a firm in Fairfax that represents banks in processing residential foreclosures. (Needless to say, she's completely swamped right now.)
And me? Well, I mostly just eat sushi and take pictures of my fabulous lawyer friends, of course. Don't we just look fierce and intimidating?
That's because we are. (Insert evil laugh.)
We should totally be a sitcom, you guys. Seriously.
Carrie Bradshaw's got nothin on us.
