Dear Summation:

I hate you.  Please die.

No love,


Dear Firm Management:

Please speed up the process to find a replacement piece of software for summation.  It keeps dying on me when I try to make a full boolean search.  That makes it very hard to do my job, as there are over 20,000 documents in this case and I need to review but a few thousand of them.



PS: I hate summation

PPS:  Boolean searching is not fun

Dear attorneys:

Next time you go to an e-discovery meet and confer, please demand that the opposing counsel provide their discovery to us such a way that the documents are not single page tiffs without a load file that tells our program how to put the docs back together, that the parent/child relationship is intact and that there is at least some basic meta data attached.

Hopefully yours,


Dear teller at the bank with the obviously muslim name:

No, I am in fact not wearing this scarf wrapped this way because I’m cold.  I’m a Wisconsinsite by birth, and 50 degrees isn’t cold enough to break out a sweat shirt, let alone a scarf.  I once wore sandals all winter, even after a fresh snow storm.  I am wrapping it like a muslim because I am in fact a muslim.  I know my name isn’t typically “muslim” sounding but really, how many non muslims would wear this style by choice?

Informatively yours,

  1. Dear Random Woman on the Street,
    How would you like it if I walked up to you and asked YOU who brainwashed YOU into wearing a strappy low-cut vest thingy and white capri pants at the age of 55?
    Best regards,
    The Hijabi You Walked Up To And Tried To Enlighten Today.

      • Turkey – which is my home at present =)

        Well-educated and intelligent women accost me on the street to share their enlightenment with me =) It’s almost sweet, really….

  2. SubhanAllah, I seriously haven’t even encountered that here in the US. Makes me wonder about the “muslim” world sometimes >:(
