The LDS Law Students blog has some sage advice for those looking for work: look both honest and hardworking.

Seems pretty common sense, right? Well, um, take a look around the lawyers of the Bloggernacle and see why this may not be so common as one might think. Lets see, Kaimi sure does have an awful lot of spare time on his hands. This backwoods country lawyer spends a lot of time keeping up on current events. Steve has enough time on his hands to shepherd BCC and watch primate documentaries and Aaron can always find time to squeeze in sarcastic comments. Naturally, Nate has time to ponder the imponderable, even though he is preparing to teach this coming semester. And look at DKL, he clearly has plenty of free time to blog...oh...wait a minute...he is just a lawyer-wanna-be. Who else have we missed? You cannot hardly go anywhere without stepping on a lawyer's toes in the Naccle. Someone isn't working 100 hours/week. But some must, as that is probably why Chelsea Grimmius, the renowned M* contributor, never posted once. So, LDS lawyer bloggers, look to Chelsea as your example...at least until you land that first job.

I always love how there are always very few new posts on T&S on the weekends.

Snarkette sure sounds like Kurt on this one. Whatever, it's on the money. I have attorney's in the family and I work with a lot of them. They are amoung the hardest working people on the planet. How some of these guys blog and compete in thier careers is a good question.

If Chelsea posted even once, then provide a link!!! HA! Thought so!

Oh, Steve, you're just jealous that Kurt works for us now and not for you anymore.

I took the job I took because I don't work week-ends, I get to leave at 5:30 and I don't have to get there until 8:30 to 9:00 in the morning.

But I do most of my posts on the week-ends. I don't know how those guys fit in posts during the week. I'm too busy with the kids and Judo. Though late at night, like now, when everyone is asleep, I can sometimes squeeze in a little blogging.

I'm amazed at those other lawyers.

This is why I want to be a lawyer. ;)

Guikty as charged. Good eye, Steve.

You missed DMI Dave, who surely reads more books than everyone else in the Bloggernacle combined.

It's because we have powers.

And a secret handshake.

You get them after the graduation commencement.

If you were on law review, you also acquire the ability to freeze time for three 15 minute intervals per 24 hour period. You only get to do it twice on weekends.

I posted about something like this (only of course, I wasn't snarking, just asking) over on VNF. You were not spared, Seth R.
