Thursday - Berkeley Institute for Law and Technology Job Fair
First of all, so weird to be on the other side of the hiring table! I introduced myself to an attorney at another table and received quite the cold shoulder, so I was loathe to try it again with someone I actually wanted to meet: an attorney who is involved with one of the South Asian groups in the Bay Area (IWL.) Thankfully, she came by our table to trade swag. As we were exchanging contact information, she said, "What are you doing Saturday? My friends are having a party." I said, "Um, do you know Vinod?" Yup, same party. I told Tom (the attorney who came with me) that "we don't all know each other - it just looks like that right now.
Friday - Mr. Smith's in the city
Accompanied Roop to her cousin's friend's bday (?) ... where I ran into ... Vinod. Also saw P. Escobar, the Marxist and the Cowboy. Had an opportunity to lipsynch some Bell Biv Devoe (now you know) as well as my rendition of the Axl dance. Good times, good times.
Hung out with the other epicenter of brown-dom, SJM, and his parents. Going for hard-core tourist, SJM et al, P. Escobar, Roop and I hit the Ghiradelli Square. Shoe shopping, pedicure, and the Thai in short order - and then it was time for Vinod's party. The party was INSANE! I felt the weekend catching up with me, and with a last look I hit the highway.
