And now to completely change the subject as promised: I wore this outfit to court today and to the office after. This dress is so comfortable, it really felt like a sweat suit. I also always forget about this necklace. It's one of those puka shell type things from when I was a kid but because it's longer it is still pretty much in-style and I can knot it like I'm wearing it today to change it up a bit. Do you have any super old jewelry that you've held on to and are still able to wear today?

Just to preface, I'm going to say something really terrible and then change the subject completely.... I found out today that one of my firm's clients, who I've worked with recently, passed away in jail. I don't know the exact cause of death, but I had been talking to his family and received a letter from him recently saying that he was having kidney problems. I don't know him or his family on any level more personal than a work relationship, but it still hit me really hard. I had just been negotiating a good plea for him and now he's gone. Another attorney told me to get used to it because it will definitely happen a few times over my career. That's unfortunately just the nature of the quality of medical care available in the jails. Ugh.
