Help Me Name My...
100 Haikus
A while back, had a "Reader Appreciation Week" during which all emails that Rob received would get posted online. The All Too Flat crew decided to contribute 1,000 haiku to his collection. But do you have any idea how hard it is to write 1,000 haiku in under 2 hours (we started late in the week. Thank god for Pacific time!)? It's really hard. So we each took 33.33 haiku and gave him 100. You can read them here when you are really bored at work and/or law school.

Hope you enjoy!
