It took me a surprisingly long time to create this blog. I mean, apart from the realisation of the sheer effort required to put in an hour or so a week to update I could be doing my readings (or sleeping or watching TV or sleeping), I had to choose the layout, the backgrounds and the colours of the blog. The toned down scallops are actually one of the later choices. If I'd had another coffee for the day, fluorescent polka dots would be indecently assaulting your eyesight as I speak.
Honestly, I doubt the Universe would make me spend almost half an hour debating over whether #d1c1a3 would go with #c3341e if it really wanted me to do any work.
I've made the commitment, though, in a kind of half-arsed response to Obiter Ovum's call to arms, and plan to keep it up because I'm already feeling less guilty about abandoning those case summaries!
So, a massive thanks for reading the first post of what I hope will be a long (and successful) road towards completing my Lawyerisation and achieving the ability to wear a wig to work without being laughed at.
