Join the Club!

Yesterday we took the plunge and signed up for a private club. It's not super snooty, but no shorts or tank-tops allowed. Since we only wear suits now, no problem.

This club is trying to recruit younger members (after all, we are the future) so it had a very reasonable initiation fee ($100) and a low monthly fee ($60). I'm very excited about it because the club has several private meetings rooms which can be used free of charge. It also offers breakfast and lunch service daily. I told my aunt and uncle we will take them to lunch there when we have our first client.

Which brings me to the list of things we plan to purchase when we get that mysterious first client. On the list there are new brakes and shocks for one of our cars (which Paul will install himself), iPhones or BlackBerrys for each of us (maybe that will be the second client), dry-cleaning services for our suits and shirts, shoe repair, a huge box of printer paper and some ink cartridges, and a good $10 bottle of wine.

Other good news--free online legal research! For all of our law school or new lawyer friends, if you don't already know this, there is a whole world beyond Lexis and West Law. Anyways, since Paul is a newbie attorney, he gets free online access to all the sections of CEB for a year! Incredible stroke of luck. That saves us over $1,200 per year.

The secret of happiness is freedom, and the secret of freedom, courage.
