It's Almost Like I've Accomplished Something

It's so exciting to get back into this blogging business and have one comment in my last five posts (thanks Pops). In the paraphrased words of Kilgore Trout, it's like I'm opening a window and making love to the world with my writing here.

Anyways, this post is really about my friend. Have any of you (and by you I mean my Pops) ever felt like you did something great through the accomplishments of others? And I'm not just talking about Lakers' fans here. I'm referring to my buddy who is clerking for Scalia in the 2011-2012 term. It's just effing incredible. I can't help but feel a little proud, even though I didn't do a damn thing. He always was the smartest one in our classes. And with this on his resume he'll never have to worry about employment the rest of his life. There probably is a downside to this somewhere. Like how he'll have to suffer silently while his boss reads out phrases like "well regulated militia" or goes all living Constitution for a one-off and says it violates equal protection to manually recount votes for Republican presidential candidates who 'legitimately' claim elections. But that's such a small down side. It's just pretty effing incredible and I can't wait to hit him up for a job and/or money in the near future.

I comment on your blog all the time! How often do you comment on mine? Maybe tell your dad about my blog...

Great to know important people. Good thing you dropped by class a couple of times.

I've been reading this awesome dude for years and have been meaning to post a comment a long time. I think he rocks.

I've been too self-absorbed to comment on your blog Ericka. But I just saw that post you made about my engagement, so that was sweet of you. And that was sweet of you Dad to make those three comments. It must have taken some time to sign out of your google account and think of three different things to say. Almost makes up for the years of neglect.
