Posting has been slow going for me lately...Not because I haven't had anything worth writing about, but quite honestly I've been getting my ass handed to me so much lately that I'm just a tad on the discouraged and beaten down side.
I could use a nice vacation.
I guess its kind of a
dickhead arrogant thing to be saying considering I just had a paid, three day weekend but I really could use it.
I've worked up a few trials to death with a multitude of reports, only to have them plead out the week/day trial is scheduled to start. In the meantime, my other active cases have not gotten the attention they've deserved while I'm focusing like a laser beam on the cases supposed to be going to trial and I'm put in a position where I have to really dig in and just get shit done on my initial and supplemental investigation requests...I wish we got paid overtime.
I really shouldn't complain. Writing reports is way better than digging ditches or spreading hot tar on roofs, both things I did when I was in high school to make money...high school sucked.
Getting the morning started with a glass of orange juice and an avocado sandwich...the perfect fuel to start a day which will consist of interviewing the mother of a 288 victim (In some cases, I would ALMOST rather have my fingernails pulled out with pliers) and canvassing a neighborhood for witnesses to a shooting last month.
The good times continue.
