This fall, Law & Order: Shanghai

You can attribute a dearth of recent posts to a number of things (apart from the obvious fact of being out of law school for a summer and having few legal things to discuss):

My hermano was in town last weekend, which meant I got to play tourist and visit places around town. The Capilano Suspension bridge was something I always wanted to go see, and if you pay attention to the last words (not the first, sung words) in this video, I thought it may have been the last thing I'd see.

My running has continued, and I'm proud to say I've upgraded my summer goal from "don't die" to "heck, maybe you can do this." I still, however, remain a terrible judge of distances. You'd be surprised how far you have to zoom out on Google Maps to map a 5km route in deceptively small Vancouver. Is that Paraguay I see on screen?

Of course, there was an awful lot of television to keep track of as well. 24 ended up (season 6 in Shanghai perhaps?) as well as American Idol (season 6 in Shanghai please?) But what's this with NBC cancelling Conviction? Sure, I critiqued the show's incongruous mix of courts and coitus, but I still liked it. That hurt worse than bad news from Ryan Seacrest.

Then there's work, but I won't dwell on that for those whose 12+ hour work days at firms may seem a bit more daunting than wireless tax research from home.

Thank you for your praise Cathy. So what are you up to these days? As you can see, I live a dangerous life and like to show Ryan how to really "live". Of course, he was in no real danger (A, I promise!). In actuality I had planted a creaking making noise machine inside his digital camera to enhance the perceived danger of that expidition!!! Brilliant!

I love it when kids are on the middle of the bridge and start jumping up and down.
