Yael, what do you do all day long?
Get at least nine hours of sleep, check my email, Skype, walk all over London, stare at maps for hours, sometimes read, pretend to look for jobs, blog, go to the gym, buy things when I’m allowed, watch old episodes of Sally Jesse Raphael, set up the flat, stay home for deliveries and service people, think about good place mat/cloth napkin combos, and plan dinners with all 4 food groups.
Are you going to get a job?
If it was up to me, I would have one already. It’s a little tricky. As an American attorney not authorised (aka authorized) to practice UK law, I have tried to creatively think of what else I would be suited for. HR? Marketing? Event planning? Centerpiece making? Wedding planning? Unlicensed therapist? Housemember on Big Brother? But I keep coming back to the fact that I like being a lawyer, I worked hard for it. I have always loved working, just not always the people I worked for.
So 3 blog readers, what color is my parachute? Who stole my cheese? Talk to me.
Will it hurt you that Eliot Spitzer’s name is on your CV (aka resume)?
I have heard they like mistresses and prostitutes in Europe, so I am going to see how it goes for awhile.
How is Bryan liking his job?
Oh yeah, that guy. Totally digging the challenge of managing so many people (with quite a few trilingual), really respects his boss, and excited for the opportunities Europe presents. He works here, right in the mix of everything in Central London. He has been told by two different German colleagues, respectively, that he “has the whitest teeth ever” and a talk he gave was “Obama-like.”
When are you getting pregnant?
Who will win the Democratic nomination in the U.S.?
John Edwards, natch. Oh wait, did I miss something?
