The opinions expressed in this blog are only my own. Although I am a lawyer, and I may comment upon legal issues from time to time, none of the information conveyed in this blog or the response to any comment is intended as legal advice or to create any attorney-client relationship with any reader or commenter.
My opinions are not endorsed by any of my employers – past, present or future. They probably aren’t really endorsed by my family members either, although I’m pretty good at putting words in their mouths. I’m thinking about getting a dog, because at least s/he won’t argue with me. Out loud anyway.
I didn’t create the layout design — that was done by some totally awesome person at WordPress who gets credit at the bottom of the blog. Seriously. Go look. If you want to use the layout, talk to WordPress.
Also, the pictures on my blog belong to those who are credited with the images. I have tried at all times to source pictures that are fair use or licensed under a Creative Commons Use license and have linked the picture back to its owner or originator. If you see work here that is not properly attributed or linked, please email me at profmomesq at hotmail dot com, and I will make an immediate correction.
Please feel free to share, reblog or repost my stuff. We’re cool as long as you properly attribute this blog as the source of the material (that is, provide a link back to the material you’ve used and say how awesome I am. Or, you know, just my name.) Otherwise, I have to get my mean lawyer hat on (and I have to put on pantyhose and suit, which really pisses me off), and no one wants that, okay? I have to put my hair in a bun and find my glasses, and even though my husband calls it my sexy-librarian look, I get all grrrrrrr. Like a pit bull.
I have a potty mouth. I know how to use the word “fuck” as a verb, noun, adjective, adverb and a preposition. You may not like that. You’ve been warned.
I moderate my comments section, because there are people out there who think it’s fun to hitch a free advertising ride on someone else’s blog, to flame me or others who comment, or just generally to mouth-off in a douchebag way. I will post your comment even if (and maybe especially if) I don’t agree with your opinion/point of view/position as long as you don’t attack me or anyone else. And, if you’re gonna be sarcastic, you better spit some game, because that is my most fluent language. Just sayin’.
This blog is not topic-specific (unless you consider me a topic), so please do not get mad at or annoyed with me when I post something you aren’t interested in reading. It’s okay to ignore me. I’m used to it. I’m married, I have children, and I’ve been teaching for twelve years. I think I took a class once on being ignored, but they called it “Community Property.” Weird.
If I am getting off an elevator, please let me do that before you get on, or I might punch you. Repeatedly. Also, if you’re deciding where you and your four girlfriends are going to lunch this afternoon, could you maybe have that little chat somewhere other than right at the top of the escalator? Thanks. Oh, and turn signals — use them. Last but not least: there, they’re, their. If I have to say more than that, please stop reading and go to a bookstore now. Get this.
That is all.
