1. You're asked by a publisher to read a book and then write a review on your blog. How fun! I'm excited about this. For three reasons: First, I've never been asked to review anything before. Second, it's been awhile since I read a book that wasn't a legal casebook, a legal supplement, or on topics of global governance. Third, I run a local women's book club (that's been on hiatus for a few months), so it's gotten me excited about getting the reading group going again. I'm going to read the book the minute my finals are over, it sounds really interesting. I can't wait! (Look for the review in May.)
2. The ABA wants you to plug their news. Plugged.

3. You start getting hate mail. I love it, how entertaining! I thought the fellow Moms In Law School might find it entertaining as well, so I'll reprint it here:

Subject: uncalled-for pictures on your blog

Certain pictures were completely uncalled for. Publishing them on your blog was in REALLY bad taste. To say nothing about the "intentionally having a kid while in law school" thing.
I'm confused about what pictures, however. My daughter with our pet rabbit? Phallic-shaped cake? Pin the red Speedo on David Duchovny? Drunk and Disorderly Elvis? I wouldn't respond to it, however, that would just be silly. But publishing it on my blog so others can be equally amused? I'm all about it! Oh the drama! I just love it.
