I'm dictating. My dad is typing for me. I'm a bit loopy from the narcotics I've been given, but I do have something to say. My PseudoAunt Jillian has passed the California Bar Exam on her first try. This was a major feat. She basically walked into the testing room and took the test cold with no preparation other than what she received from her law school courses. Most bar applicants study hours a day for months. Her plan was to take it with no preparation so that she would have a bettter idea how to focus her studies for her first "real" attempt at passage. She was further hindered by having attended law school in a state other than California. Some aspects of the law are common to all states, and some states bear more commonality in state laws than do others, but it was still impressive that she passed without a rigorous course of study after having attended an out-of-state law school. I'm still stuck in this hospital bed, but I'm celebrating with her and with her family and friends in spirit.

Congratulations, Auntie.




  1. Well done Jillian!

    And glad you are doing so well, Alexis.

    Are they letting you drink plenty of Guinness? (Probably not!) Actually, any malt drink, even those that are alcohol free, will be of some benefit.

  2. matt, I'm springing this joint on Tuesday. I'll get my malt one way or another at that time. Uncle Steve said that if I'm a good little patient, he may smuggle a small amount [which is all I'll ever get, but a little goes a long way in an 80-lb. body] tonight. I'm being the epitome of a good patient today.

  3. Congratulations to your aunt!! I hope you are feeling much better!

  4. That is awesome, Congrats to your Auntie!!
