    Welcome aboard, Dave. I’m excited to have you as one of our co-operators. You’re exhibit A in Kaimi’s rule of “ally self with smart people.”

    Or is it that Nate is exhibit A and you’re exhibit B? I can’t keep it all straight. Besides, the paralegals do all the exhibit number around here anyway.

  2. Kaimi — Hey, wait a minute . . . does that relegate me to exhibit C? Am I on the exhibit list at all?

  3. Kaimi says:


    Ooops. I _knew_ I had forgotten an exhibit.

    Paralegal! Come up to my office, ASAP, and bring some exhibit tabs with you!

    Welcome. But what the hell kind of word is “nullificatory”? And how do you pronounce it?

  5. Nate Oman says:

    Kaimi: Actually, we like to number our exhibits. Afterall, if thousands of hours of document review and hundreds of thousands of pages of documents don’t produce more than 26 exhibits, what is the point….

  6. Dave Hoffman says:

    Two points.

    1. Kaimi, do you even still have paralegals?

    2. Moob: Check out the article. It is a word that we created. Pronounce as you like, but my best guess is null-iff-‘ik-atory
