Dear Karma

Dear Karma,

I don't know what I did to offend you, but whatever it is I'm sorry. I really wish you would just tell me so we can clear the air and move on. You really are a cruel little creature. You may have been amused to see me lying on a mountain unable to move having to have ski patrol come bundle me up in one of those sleds. And it was probably highly entertaining to watch me try and use crutches for the very first time in my life. But was it really necessary to cause a building evacuation on my first day back to work from my weekend tumble? I can barely walk on crutches, stairs are completely out of the question. But yet because you haven't gotten enough amusement from torturing me this week you thought that you would see if I could handle getting out of a building from the 3rd floor. Lucky for me the elevators still worked. So I get the message loud and clear Karma, you're pissed. All I'm asking is that you accept my apology for whatever it is that I did to make you mad and I'm begging you to please leave me alone for the rest of this week.

Sincerely,

Useless Dicta

50 [Useless] Remarks:

I simply love your blog. I have read every post in the last 3 days. From your beginning as a 1L to you know being a full fledged attorney.

I am an undergrad( Junior) and I have recently decided that I want to become a lawyer.

I know it isn't easy, but I have always been fascinated by it and wanted to learn more.

I am taking the Practice LSAT in a week and a half. I have decided to take it w/o studying, to see what I know naturally, if that makes sense.

Any advice?

* Sorry about your skiing accident. I hope you didn't tear anything in your knee.

*Also, I would like to know if Trivia Guy passed the bar exam. ( I guess he wont know for a few months).

Been a while. Checking in. You ok?

I am the "ex" referenced in one of Useless Dicta's 2008 posts (entitled "The Ex-Factor" and describing our breakup and its aftermath). I sincerely regret to inform you that Useless passed away very unexpectedly on the evening of February 12th due to a pulmonary embolism, which occurred as a result of blood clots that developed in the aftermath of Useless's skiing accident.

Useless and I had been somewhat out of touch for a while, but I spoke to her a couple of times in recent months, including a conversation to congratulate her shortly after the Bar results came out in Useless state. Enough time had passed since our breakup that I planned to start trying to re-establish our friendship, but I always assumed that I had plenty of time. Of course, I wish now that I had reached out much sooner.

Useless started this blog in the fall of 2006, back when she started law school and we were still dating. I was one of her few live friends that she entrusted with the URL, and I have checked the blog periodically ever since to see what she was up to and how she was doing. I was so thankful to see that she had landed her dream job and that she seemed to be doing so well. When we were both undergrads, I was always the one who planned to go to law school and she wasn't really sure what she wanted to do - law school was something of a default option for her. Nevertheless, I was so thankful that she seemed to have found her calling and had ended up in a job she loved. I wanted to tell her how happy I was for her, and I must admit that I was kind of looking forward to ribbing her about wiping out on a green. I have become a big skier myself, thanks mostly to Useless. I went skiing a lot as a child but pretty much stopped after about age 12. Useless was the person most responsible for re-igniting my love for the sport, and I am certain that she appreciated (and laughed at) the irony of her, a pretty damn good skier in her own right, messing up her knee on a beginner run.

Anyone who has read this blog with any regularity knows that Useless had a wonderful sense of humor and a real gift for perceiving and describing the world as it is. I also want all of you to know that she was even better in person - kind, considerate, caring, funny, loving - a beautiful person and a beautiful soul. It was a real privilege to know her, a privilege to be her friend, and it's heartbreaking to lose her so young.

I am sorry to be the bearer of such awful news, but I thought that those of you who read this blog regularly ought to know why the blog posts suddenly stopped.

Jpo. I've been a reader/ blog friend of UD's since the beginning. We meant to become FB friends, but she couldn't find my locked down profile and I never followed up. Obviously, I have no way of knowing if what you wrote is true.

And yet, I feel completely devastated because I suspect that it is.

Juliet said...

J-Po, What a horrible tragedy. Thank you, however, for providing this update, and also to Butterflyfish for signaling to it on her blog.

This turn of events makes UD's last post seem so ominous in retrospect. I certainly didn't known UD or her blog nearly as well as many--I'd come upon it only a few months before it went silent. But it is impossible not to be affected by news like this. My sympathies go out to her family and friends, real and virtual.

Jay said...

Im truly heartbroken about this.

May her family find peace.

I miss you.

Happy birthday. Miss you very much.

J-Po said...

It's hard to believe you've been gone a year now. I still think about you every day. I miss you.

Monk said...

I'm listening to Pandora at work & an old song by the Calling came across my station. It made me think of you. So much has happened since you left us. I find myself wishing often that we could have coffee and catch up. I miss you.

Monk said...

Remember how your family used to get calls intended for the attorney with the same name as your dad? Well, I recently wrote my first brief to the Colorado Supreme Court, and I'm working on the Reply now. An amicus brief in support of the other side arrived at our office today. Sure enough, your dad's name is on it! Made me smile.

I miss you very, very much.

I seriously think that you nailed the subject. Your commentary is timely as we start a group of volunteers and we could use some of your ideas to build ours. You did a great job and all of us are pleased to arrived at your blog. Tim @ asr hip recall
