May. 11th, 2004 @ 07:30 am Answers to some Questions
Current Mood: productiveproductive
Here is the answers for Mr. Finn's questions.

Q: Have you ever had an 'office romance'?

A: Wolfram and Hart looks down upon personal relationships between colleagues. They do support friendly competition. So I would never jeopardize my position at the firm by consorting someone at work. Although do have to say that I have been tempted. Miss Morgan is a very attractive women, and knows how to use her feminine charms to manipulate and influence those around her.

Q: What religion or philosophy do you live by, if any?

A: Guess I have a fairly complex philosophy that includes key aspects from Charles Darwin, Herbert Spencer, and Friedrich Nietzsche. In a 1899 letter Jack London wrote, Herbert Spencer's First Principles "has done more for mankind, and through the ages will have done far more for mankind, than a thousand books."

Contrary to popular belief, it was Herbert Spencer, not Charles Darwin, that first coined the phrase "survival of the fittest." He first used the phrase in the Principles of Biology (1864 - 1867). Spencer wrote,
"The survival of the fittest which I have here sought to express in mechanical terms, is that which Mr. Darwin has called "natural selection, or the preservation of favored races in the struggle for life."
And clearly life is all about survival of the fittest and smartest. Friedrich Nietzsche's book Thus Spoke Zarathustra promotes this idea above all others. In this book, Nietzsche expounded his theory of the "beyond - man" or "superman." The "superman" was perfect in both mind and body. He was unmatched in strength and intelligence. He was also not encumbered by religious or social mores.

So that is part of the philosophy I live by, though when it comes down to it, I'll do whatever I think is in the best interest of myself, for my own survival will always come first.

Q: You're offered your dream job. What is it?

A: My idea job would be CEO of Wolfram and Hart. So my goal is to someday become the number one man at the law firm. With it will come power and control that is beyond what most could ever comprehend.

Q: Who is your favorite author?

A: Always found Friedrich Nietzsche's books, such as Beyond Good and Evil to be very intriguing.

Q: If you were in a movie,what genre would you want to
act in: horror, comedy, drama, action-adventure, or sci-fi?

A: Think I'm living in a horror/comedy movie with Angel as the annoying creature that just won't stay dead. But if I had my choice would take action-adventure. Always liked watching those westerns where the guy does everything he set out to do in life, and after winning the final battle, rides off into the sunset with his true love. Okay, so have a little bit of a hopeless romantic in me. So sue me.

Feb. 11th, 2004 @ 06:30 am A good opportunity
Current Mood: workingworking
I've been advised that one of the main thorns in Wolfram & Hart's side has recently returned to Los Angeles... which is not good for some of our clients... that vamp detective and his friends have proven to be a real annoyance to the firm... sticking their nose where it doesn't belong... making my clients unsatisfied with the quality of service of Wolfram and Hart... and hurting my chances at a promotion... The Senior Partners do not look kindly upon failure... and do not accept excuses for failure... I'm not gonna let some wannabe hero interfere in my business.

Thus the recent imprisonment of a friend of the souled vamp, presented a good opportunity that could not be passed up... to try to acquire the services of Angel, in return for making Mr. Wyndam-Pryce's current legal problems go away. But I'm not sure if my associate Lilah Morgan, was able to convience this ex-watcher that were the only ones that can help him gain his freedom anytime soon. But maybe Angel will see no other option. From what I've heard, the vampire has always put the interests of his friends above all else. His loyalty to friends is his greatest weakness. So hopefully he will see reason, and be willing to come to an agreement that is mutually beneficial to all the parties involved. If not, then the Senior Partners will not be happy... and appropriate actions must be taken to rectify any problems that may arise.

Really do need to get out, and forget about work for a little while. Should go over to a local Karaoke bar of a friend of mine... and just relax and do some singing. To just forget about legal matters for a little while at least.

Jan. 5th, 2004 @ 12:31 am New Year, New Opportunities
Current Mood: workingworking
Its a new year, with new opportunities. And like most of the employees of Wolfram and Hart, I didn't have a Christmas to speak off... especially when there isn't anyone to share it with... never really was my favorite time of the year anyway... since I never really got what I wanted... but then who does... except the rich and the powerful that can try to buy happiness.

I had too much work to focus on anyway... and as usual... Wolfram and Hart has me working overtime... I still haven't lost a case yet... so 2003 proved to be a most advantageous year for me at the firm.

And now is a good opportunity to get some additional legal wins under my belt... such as the recent acquittal of a very important client of the firm, Ms. Vanessa Weeksand... was pretty simple, since no jury in the world would believe that a helpless blind women could kill anyone... And Holland was very pleased with what I'm doing for W&H.

So, 2004 holds great promise as well. Barring any unexpected occurances... this new year should be even better... of course is still at least one potential threat to my success... but that annoyance is still out of the Los Angeles area... which is good for my clients... as long as he stays out of Wolfram & Harts ways, should be no problems with me getting a promotion... The Senior Partners continue to support me... and as long as I don't let them down... then everything should be ok.

Things have been rather uneventful as of late... like most of the employees of Wolfram and Hart, I didn't have a Thanksgiving to speak off... What's left of my family is still back in Oklahoma... and I really never plan on going back home again... somethings are best left forgotten... the past is best left alone.

I had work to distract me from anything else... and as usual... Wolfram and Hart has me working overtime... Things have been very good for the firm as of late.

I've been advised that one of the main thorns in W&H's side has not been in the Los Angeles area for several weeks now... which is good for our clients... that vamp detective and his friends were a real annoyance to the firm... sticking their nose where it didn't belong... making my clients unsatisfied with the quality of service of Wolfram and Hart... and hurting my chances at a promotion... The Senior Partners do not look kindly upon failure... and do not accept excusses for failure... you either carry your weight or you get thrown overboard... Literally.

So now is a good opportunity to get some wins under my belt... and be one step closer to being on top in the end.

Oct. 31st, 2003 @ 08:00 pm Halloween and W&H
Current Mood: listlesslistless
Halloween night is a time to forget about work, and try to have some fun... Wolfram and Hart's annual Halloween Party with mandatory attendance for all employees is a chance to mingle, and drink.

Wolfram and Hart's idea of a party is a bit unusual... with the traditional ritual sacrifice... other than that it is a normal party with some people wearing costumes... also some demon clients around enjoying the evening... I'm really not in that good of a mood... Things have been boring lately... and I really need to keep my attention on potential opportunities that can win me favor with the Senior Partners.

Onto a more positive note... Nixi arrived at my office with a very dangerous vampire slayer Faith, offering there services to Wolfram & Hart, and a slayer would be a major asset to the firm... but she is a very troubled and conflicted young women... her association with a certain annoying vampire that interfere's in W&H business is troublesome... so not sure if she can be trusted or would be able to do certain jobs... although her file from Sunnydale does show promise... but I'm not willing to be the only one to put my neck on the line with her... so me and Lilah will work together... and can always cover things up or blame someone else for anything that goes wrong.

Nixi was finally able to bring the Thesulac's invisibility gland to me... The Senior Partners will be very pleased with my successful acquisition of this valued asset to the firm... Nixi done a better job than expected and was rewarded handsomely for a job well done... and she was given a retainer fee and will be notified when there is another job that Wolfram and Hart needs handled.

I'm glad that I got one up on Lilah... really thought that she may try to interfere in my business again... must have been preoccupied with other matters... I really do need to get out, and forget about work for a little while. Can go over to a local Karaoke bar of a friend of mine... and relax and do some singing. Was there a couple days ago, and heard some really bad singers... some people need to know when to keep there mouths shut... and to not quit there day job.

My client Russell Winters mansion suffered an intruder recently that interrupted Mr. Winters dinner plans... this is the second report of this vampire interfering in the personal affairs of our client... and when our clients are not happy... then the Senior Partners are not happy... so I will have to do some damage control... figure out a way to handle this and keep my client satisfied with Wolfram and Hart's services.

Onto a more positive note... I've received word that Nixi has obtained the Thesulac's invisibility gland from the demon that had been at the old Hyperion Hotel... all that remains is for her to transfer the refrigeration unit that contains it to me... The Senior Partners will be very pleased with my successful acquisition of this valued asset to the firm... and Nixi will be rewarded handsomely for a job well done... and she will definitely be considered for future projects at W&H.

Current Mood: okayokay
I gone to my client Russell Winters mansion for an important meeting. Had to make sure that he was happy with the job Wolfram and Hart has been doing representing him... I informed him about the tragic death of his friend Tina... My client hadn't seen the young lady in several weeks... The unfortunate incident occurred at the same time Mr. Winters was in conference with his contract lawyers. Wolfram and Hart informed Mr. Winters that they have located a witness who's telling police that he saw a dark-complected man with blood on his hands fleeing the scene. Like I told Mr. Winters, Wolfram and Hart is a full service law firm... its our job to make sure our clients lives run more smoothly... I'm pleased that he is impressed with my legal representation. Will increase my standing at the firm and make it more likely for me to advance up the corporate ladder sooner than I had anticipated.

Onto other business matters with Mr. Winters. I provided him with a videotape from my friend Margo's most recent Hollywood party... My friend Margo has been helping to keep Wolfram and Hart and our clients informed to all the wanna-be-actresses who are new to Hollywood... My client has chosen another young lady... but no need to alert the firm... since she is not another long term investment. Just someone that he wants to invite over for dinner. *See's Russell watching videotape of Cordelia chating at Margo's Hollywood party.*
I'll make all the arrangements. Margo will be informed immediately, and will contact the young lady... Let her know that Mr. Winters wants to meet the young women, that a limo will pick her up tonight and take her to his extravagant mansion... I'm sure Mr. Winters will have a very pleasant dinner. Meeting my clients every need is what I do best.

Since I've been working for Wolfram and Hart... I've learned not to judge a book by its cover... Nixi is a perfect example of that, she may appear to be a harmless cute child... but is an expert bounty hunter that is not to be taken lightly... The meeting with Nixi went well... She agreed to acquire what W&H wants for a reasonable fee... the invisibility gland from the Thesulac demon that was last known to be at the old Hyperion Hotel... the paranoia demon was also rumored to be following around a rogue slayer by the name of Faith and a vampire named Angel that were last seen in an old Apartment building in downtown Los Angles... The demon has apparently been in the Hyperion since its founding and is most likely to still be found there... All the information we have on the demon was given to Nixi... Wolfram and Hart is paying her top dollar to get the job done... I am confident that she will handle this matter with the utmost secretacy... The Senior Partners will be pleased with my initiative on this matter... and even if things don't go as expected... well I'm the only one that knows about it at W&H... so all my bases are covered no matter what.

When one works for Wolfram and Hart... they have to always be ahead of there co-workers... and need to take advantage of opportunities that present themselves. Wolfram and Hart is always looking to acquire things of great value. My sources tell me that there is the possibility to obtain a gland that makes a person or demon invisible. It is critical that W&H gets control of this potential asset or destroy it... so as to prevent it from being used against us or our clients. It's come to my attention that a bounty hunter named Nixi is in Los Angeles... and may be of use to W&H... to take care of this matter as soon as possible.

My name is Lindsey McDonald. I work for the law firm Wolfram and Hart... I've been in Los Angeles for a few months... I'm originally from Oklahoma... but that life seems like a lifetime ago... And since I've been working for W&H... I've been representing some pretty interesting characters... not really what I expected to be the life of a lawyer, but in Los Angeles things really are different and I'm always up to any challenge. I've never lost a case... and plan on working my way up the corporate ladder at W&H. And nobody is going to interfer with my career goals. They expect there employees to do whatever it takes to win... and failure is not an option with them... The name of the game is winning at all costs... so I do whatever it takes to ensure that my clients stay out of trouble.

My current client is Russell Winters... a very powerful, and wealthy business man that is one of Wolfram and Harts most prized clients. Wolfram and Hart entrusted me as his primary legal representative... to handle all his legal affairs... and to ensure that he is never accused and never convicted of any crimes... Its my job to make sure he gets everything that he wants, no matter who or what that is.
