LawBlog 2007: The Pub

An associate lawyer has been playing this podcast lately. For a couple of days I wrongly assumed it was an audio of the Hells Angels 1968 Memorial Day picnic or maybe the soundtrack from Barfly, the 1987 film on low-bottom Los Angeles drunks starring Mickey Rourke, Faye Dunaway and the elegant South African-born actress Alice Krige. Neither. It's a post-LawBlog 2007 debauch in a London pub on May 18 starring GeekLawyer and co-counsel Ruthie and featuring the astonishingly slurred voices of otherwise reputable solicitors, barristers, journalists and academics who went to schools like Oxford and Cambridge. Anglophile WAC? is both shocked and impressed.

Dan... I have never seen anything like it.... never in the field of UK legal blogging have so many owed so much to so few....

There was a time when I thought that we would not make it... but we did. We took UK law blogging to a new level. It could have been our darkest hour... but... through Squadron Leader Geeklawyer took us through it....

It was a most enjoyable day... We missed you.

I am now a reformed blogger... I went to a retreat...considered my position... reflected... and now I doing what I can to add to the book of legal knowledge.

I don't think I am succeeding... but... it may have been Sir Rudyard Kipling... Chief Scout and writer of truly execrable jingoistic nonsense who said... "If you can hold your drink when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you etc etc "

Trust you are well. I feel that it may be time to do another podcast.... with you... if you are so minded. No need to come to London. I have the technology to do it over the telephone.

Not an associate solicitor called Dan by any chance? I trust you flogged him and ordered him back to the desk over the weekend for wasting time at work..
