Big Shot Jurl

When you're a big shot attorney like myself, you get sweet deposition gigs like the one I had the other day: Duncan, Oklahoma. Jealous much? I know everyone wants to go to a hoity toity hot spot like Duncan, Oklahoma, but it's a pretty exclusive town. Those in the know call it by it's code name- Craphole, Oklahoma.

In order to make the 9:00 a.m. deposition start time, I got up at 5:00 a.m. and was on the road by 5:40 a.m. Ah, what luxury to be sipping McDonald's cafe before the sun comes up.

I took a few photos along the way so you would be able to live vicariously through my G-L-A-M-O-U-R-O-U-S life........

The scenic route....I saw an amazing amount of road kill: three armadillos, four skunks, two raccoons, and something that looked like a bear.

The Holiday Inn Motel was so swanky they even had ashtrays in the bathroom stall! I've always wanted to sit on the toilet and smoke!

Note to Oklahoma: SMOKING IS BAD FOR YOU. If you can't go potty without a cigarette then you may have a bigger problem than your black lungs.

Another swanky touch, a hot plate in the conference room! If only I'd brought my Ramen noodles!

I tried to buy one of these paper towel caddies, but they were beyond my budget... guess I'll just have to get Sam to make me one.

Ooh! This is a sister property to the Sheraton Brookhollow. Too bad this wasn't an overnight trip.

If only I'd had the time to work in a spa appointment....I bet Sheeta's Day Spa serves free beer....or moonshine.

Any volunteers for my next road trip? I always need a DJ to spin the tunes.....

Not jealous a bit!

Did you hear many banjos playing?

I spent a week there, one day.

I would have loved to have gone---too bad I was in Edna, Texas at the time.

So glad you took pictures--I don't think people believe us when we describe the crappy places we have to travel.

Banjos, the spoons, jug-blowin, are just a few of the instruments along the way.

We do have truly glamorous jobs, don't we? My own favorite experience was being in the yard of someone's house with the unrestrained cows walking toward me. Then, of course, finding out the deposition had been moved to a different location about a week before, but no one in our office knew about it. Oh well.
Of course, I am at a resort in Phoenix right now, so I can't fuss much, but I'm also not billing a darn thing because I'm at a CLE.
