I will be alot more diserning about these things.

While everyone else was recommending high literature...

Anyone else noticed that Ellen's erroneous spelling, caps, punctuation have all gotten more EXTREEM over time? 

Ellen January 28, 2011 at 6:22 pm
You should check now to see if you can get back issues of Marie Claire on-line? There were some exellent articles that I read when I was in LAW school that I did NOT clip out at the time that I wish I had clipped out.
If you find them please let all of us Corporettes know about it and to get us the HYPERLYNK. I learned alot about men through these articles, and b/c of that I am NOT being taken advantage by anyone who wants for me to do things I do NOT want to do.
B/C I do have to pay the rent for now, I am very nice to my boss at work, but you can be sure that after I get married, I will be alot more diserning about these things.

I am almost hoping Ellen will start linking to her own BLOG, because I would READE it DAILY and look forward to COMMENTS like this as well.

I’m starting to enjoy “her” interjections around here. Well done, Ellen. You’ve found a niche. Just don’t go spoiling it by getting out of hand.

I reiterate my position that √Član is an AI in testing phase. :-D

You can subscribe to Marie Claire CHEAP and can still pay the RENT. Maybe it will help you deal with your BOSS.

Even the judges on the Supreme Court wear Scrunchies.

Ellen January 27, 2011 at 1:32 pm
I found a set of 5 color-coordinated Scrunchies on sale at the new TARGET for only $19.95.
The manageing partner likes to see my face, so I usually wear Scrunchies at the office.
Sometimes, when I want to work in the library WITHOUT being disturbed, I take the Scrunchie off, so my hair is DOWN, but most of the time I wear a Scrunchie.
I also wear the Scrunchie after work when I go to work out at the gym. They are VERY handy to keep my hair away from my face and the machines, too.
Go with the Scrunchie. It is MUCH more professional. Even the judges on the Supreme Court wear Scrunchies.

EG January 27, 2011 at 2:21 pm
Ah, here we go. Needed this on a snowy day. Also need Ellen to meet Sarah Jessica Parker for the Scrunchie conversation.
K January 27, 2011 at 4:45 pm
That was my exact thought when I read it! I was replaying that entire scene in my mind :)
AIMS January 27, 2011 at 2:22 pm
Ellen’s right. Ruth Bader Ginsburg totally wears scrunchies!
surrounded by lawyers January 27, 2011 at 2:27 pm
As does Scalia.
v January 27, 2011 at 2:54 pm
Best mental image ever! Anyone talented with photoshop?
Lola January 27, 2011 at 5:06 pm
When you’re Ruth Bader Ginsburg, you can do whatever the heck you want.
Kaye January 27, 2011 at 4:04 pm
Purple would be better though.
Anonymous January 27, 2011 at 4:20 pm
Oh Ellen, I didn’t REALIZE until just now how much I missed your comments. Please TRY not too stay AWAY for so long.
Anon in the Snow January 27, 2011 at 4:33 pm
Wow. I guess I am the only one who thinks Scrunchies are for teens.
Anonymous January 27, 2011 at 5:35 pm
Scrunchies should not be worn by anyone, but Ellen is our favorite troll so we like to indulge her. I’m certain 99% of the people on this site agree that professional women should not wear scrunchies.
Anonymous January 28, 2011 at 12:30 pm
Troll? Take that back; he’s a bona fide community member now. He’s the only reason I read the comments here anymore.

HYPENETING our names to become “Sheketovits-Barshevsky”

Ellen was manageing her expectations for the relationship with Alan from the beginning...

Ellen January 25, 2011 at 6:45 pm
I will NEVER change my name after I get MARRIED, so that if I EVER get divorced, I will NOT have that problem. Even though I love Alan dearly, he has a very unusual name (Sheketovits), and my last name is much preferable to his (Barshevsky).
When we talk about this, he wanted me to change my name so I said how about YOU taking MY name, and he said no.
So we then said how about HYPENETING our names to become “Sheketovits-Barshevsky”, but I prefer “Barshevsky-Sheketovits”, but this would NOT be good for our children, as the SAT does not have this many spaces on their forms.
So it is JUST going to be Barshevsky for me, and Sheketovits for him. That way, if I ever catch him cheating, and divorce him, I will not have to get rid of his name.
Down with trolls January 25, 2011 at 7:30 pm
Barshevsky-Sheketovits LOL. At least there is no question now that Ellen is a troll or at least a troll is masquerading as Ellen! But Alan Sheketovits or whatever his name is sure is active as a troll on the ABA-type blogs!

Oh Elan – this is just the best. Funnier than anything I could have come up with myself…

moved to a shabby smaller windowless space

Ellen January 24, 2011 at 8:32 pm
Threadjack, please! I JUST got back from a vacation with Alan and I found out that my office was moved to a shabby smaller windowless space at the end of the hall. How should IHANDLE this? The manageing partner says he needed my office for a new partner, but he is not EVEN there yet. I do not want to loose my job by being to pushy. I do like my job alot, but do feel like they are treating me badly. Can anyone advice me? Thank you.
See Pea A January 24, 2011 at 8:59 pm
just be thankful you have an office and not a cubicle! Put up a picture of “alan” on the wall and be thankful you have a job
North Shore January 24, 2011 at 9:45 pm

Look on the bright side, maybe the BALD partner with the BAD BREATH won’t be able to FIND you anymore!
Kaye January 25, 2011 at 1:46 am
Sounds rough :( Go have a martini or five to help you cope, and then maybe write the managing partner an email letting him know how you feel?

Don’t worry about it; just spend most of your day leaving comments on Corporette. You’ve become the best thing about this site.
