how do I get the BR 25% for email thing? I see where to sign up for emails, but there is no indication of the promo. Is it something they are just always running?

Bottom of website.

Br shirts: IMO br shirts are awesome for the price. Idk where I could get better shirts for $30 and they require very minimal tailoring

I did go to lunch with a partner who dresses pretty dope on the reg and felt kind of out of place. I did have Allen Edmonds on (thank God!) but they weren't black park aves ( :( ) and a BR shirt but it was classic cut, not slim. Wasn't even tailored! Won't tell you guys what kind of pants I was wearing. So glad I didn't rock my new Target shirt. I'll save it for Monday.

I'm joking about some stuff but I do wear non-slim cut shirts for the most part and non-wool pants. Cuz YOLO

Couldn't help but go the Allen Edmonds route though, I just couldn't fight the hive on that one

Have a splitting sinus headache at work today, and have tried Sudafed, Motrin, caffeine, etc. It's going to be a long day.

Not a clue. I'm on the east coast, and the time stamp shows 9:30 am for me. Weird. :?

Depends what you said I think

"Could I have some more water?" ----> probably okay

"Cunt" ----> less cut and dry

Share the joke or I'll report your post to the mods. Yes, this is a threat.

I have yet to meet or work with or hear of any crazies at my firm. Are they hiding them all or something?

Quite possibly, yes. At both firms I've worked at, the particularly difficult partners are walled off from the summers.

On the up side, recruiting person said I was asked by name (from someone I havent worked with yet but works with other supervisors I've had) to take on a new project.

On the down side, this is project number 8 (although I think only 4 are really active on any given day). Sigh, looks like another 8:30 - 7:30 day (if I'm lucky).
