Hilarious.

Someone who I assume was the author of this weblog sent me a link a few weeks or months ago. There used to be content. Andrea surmised that the anonymous solo attorney was too busy "making it day by day" to have time to keep up the weblog.

"Day by Day" is a popular song title, by the way. Had the weblog kept going, the author could have chosen from these theme songs:

1. The religious anonymous solo attorney:

Day by day
Day by day
Oh Dear Lord
Three things I pray
To see thee more clearly
Love thee more dearly
Follow thee more nearly
Day by day

2. The know-nothing anonymous solo attorney:

Today`s a new day, not like the old days
What else can I say, that`s not been said
Each day I rise up, thinking I`ve wised up
I realise that I don`t know shit

Don`t know where I`m gonna be - day by day with me
I don`t know where I`m gonna land - day by day with me
My five year plan has turned to ten

3. The bitter and cynical anonymous solo attorney:

Day by day - look what the papers say
Day by day - look what the papers say
Stranded in the jungle
Trapped inside the tube
[You] hate your next door neighbour
Cos he's got more than you
Going round and round / day by day
On the cirlce line
Round and round

Day by day - it's all work no play
Day by day - it's all work no play
Living for inflation
I know I never win
Just to earn a living
They keep me locked in

4. The romantic anonymous solo attorney:

Day by Day I wake up for you I do
and I rise to who knows who
well if I can say...some other day

Day by Day I reach out to you I do
and I pretend there's something to it
And if I can say...I've had better days

Day by Day I resort to you I do
and I wash up after you're through
If I can say...that's O.K.

You're in my head again
You're in my bed again
You're in my mirror again

And if you don't mind me...I don't mind you
Day by Day I reflect on you I do
I reflect on you I do

5. The political anonymous solo attorney:

Bring the war back to the streets
Keep the spirit of punk in you
And in your heart remain the same
Keep the faith alive in you

Year by year - day by day
Time just seems to pass away

Ray

Then there's Badfinger's "Day After Day":

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out from my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember holding you while you sleep
Every day, I feel the tears that you weep
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

[duel slide guitar solo (Pete Ham and George Harrison)]

Looking out of my lonely room, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you

I remember finding out about you
Every day, my mind is all around you
Looking out of my lonely gloom, day after day
Bring it home, baby, make it soon
I give my love to you.

Ray

P.S. I just realized that "duel slide-guitar solo" (which I copied from the Badfinger lyrics website) is an oxymoron. The phrase should read, "Slide-guitar duet by Pete Ham and George Harrison." Evan, you can fix it for me or leave it as is, with this correction. (Good thing I don't pay people who catch my mistakes!)
