Hey Judge, Kiss My...

Apparently, signing a court document by asking the judge to kiss your [certain lower body part] is sufficient for contempt. Attention colleagues who are seeking the litigation path: you've been warned.

Tangentially related to future employment, I was wondering if anyone got something really good from their future employer over the finals/holiday season. I've heard many classmates who have received the tried-and-true cookies and/or brownies. I even heard that one firm decided to send a leather-like blanket (sounds cozy, no?). Anything else good / way out-there received by Boalties this year (or if it's really good, in years past)?

PS: A certain N&B milestone occurred on Jan 1, 2008 with my fellow co-blogger's post. According to Blogger count, the "2008 List of Banished Words" was N&B's 1,000th post. Congrats to Armen and the other bloggers who helped get N&B off the ground, turning it into one of the top "lawyer in training" blogs according to the ABA Journal.

As a 3L, are you supposed to get anything from the firm you accepted an offer at? Or are gifts only handed out to 2Ls?

Everyone knows a court will not kiss anyone's ass absent a properly filed motion to kiss [your] ass.

The S&C blanket felt like it was freshly skinned from a camel. Sadly, I only got a postcard.

3L. Got a $30 gift card from Jones Day for Nordstom. Maybe I'll get a pair of shoetrees.
