As your attorney...

Postby Your Attorney » Wed Sep 04, 2013 1:33 pm


Seattle first time burner here. I just finished my first burn and wanted to join a board and interact with people because I am a bit introverted. I know some people on this board already, or met a few at the burn. As you can see from my name and avatar, I like Hunter S. Thompson. Though I am into politics and law, I have learned most people don't want to hear about it. I love movies and cooking and gaming (table top, board, and video games). I like to work out (and may step up my game after seeing how in shape some of the burners were). I love art and music (who doesn't?) but need to get more of that stuff in my life. I finish law school about 2 years ago, so it was nice to break free and I plan to go again next year.

Plenty of us are politically active.
So you're an introverted attorney?
Going for trial attorney then, no doubt?

The latest attorney I've engaged really raises the bar for how interesting an attorney can be, and that's saying quite a bit.
She showed up in leopard skin accessories and is wildly entertaining, even doing business.
Exceedingly politically astute, as well.

Glad you had a good time.

Hey there, welcome to eplaya!
When I was a kid I used to pray every night for a new bicycle.
Then I realised that the Lord doesn't work that way so I stole one and asked Him to forgive me.

Introverted attorneys can exist. If I need to go to court, I can bring it. That said, a lot of attorneys rarely, if ever, appear in court. I wish I appeared in court more, it would help me become more extroverted. I deal with creditors and bankruptcy and foreclosure defense primarily, rather than litigation, though, so court appearances aren't as common or necessary.

Hola and hello...

Love your Eplaya name.

Lots of comedians are introverts too. Not that I'm comparing the two...
Oh my god, it's HUGE!

Welcome to Eplaya.

Since you've been to the burn - how about telling us your favorite playa story just for shits and giggles.
Savannah: I don't know what it is, but no thread here escapes alive. You'll get 1 or 2 real answers at minimum, occasionally 10 or 12, and then we flog it until it's unrecognizable and you can't get your deposit back.

Welcome. I have an extensive collection of little brown bottles. Mostly empty.

Every year I bring my Hawaiian shirt and stethoscope, but I've yet to make the Hunter S. Thompson pub crawl. One of these years.

Welcome! My husband is an introvert and it is really fun to watch hi sparkle at the burn. He becomes a different person. I'm normally an extrovert, but this year I found myself seeking solitude.
When the only tool you got is a hammer, every problem looks like a hippie.

Mmmmmm I love the smell of Burning Man Token
