Mitt Romney has a slightly evil son

who would do this to their parent?

When I was younger there were 4 American Girl Dolls

I got Kirsten, my sister got the other 3....

Despite the inequality of doll gifting in my household, I always assumed they were rather progressive figures. Who knew they had such a different point of view:)

those books must be full of propaganda

Crim Complaints

45 pages...we had to read 45 pages, and I read them all. For every class we should be prepared for 45 pages from the last case however much that would be, but for the first time it sucked. And guess what...we didn't even go over any of it! I am wasting to much time doing work when I could be sleeping, or going out....
Oh well, at least the crim-tort schedule I have allows me not to have to prepare anyhting for next week:)

I swear, I went to a really good school!

ok, so every year my high school makes it into the top whatever public high schools the newsweek publishes...but that does not mean that the students can't make complete and utter fools of themselves and then post it to YouTube
Take a look at what my idle surfing pulled up:

I have no clue who these guys are (but, since the conejo is slightly incestuous, I most likely know their siblings) but they are a fine example of what you can accomplish by being an active member of the WHS choir!

And here we go again!

Semester 2, Day 1...
The scene opens about 1 hour before class starts in L202. For some reason people are already staking out their seats. Oh aren't we the optomistic bunch! We all came back! And then all our hopes and dreams were crushed as soon as the professor brought up that evil exam we had taken last semester.
Things I am looking forward to:
-most likely being in ILA, cause seriously, who am I kidding!
-27 dresses, James Marsden, I wasn't a fan when you were on TV, but now you are hot...i think its the singing and dancing!
-tax time! yes, taxes are fun and interesting (don't believe me? you go through the code and try to figure out the root of all the strange regulations, some of them are more porky than porky the pig!)
-snow days, cause I have never ever had one in my life!
-my pink hibiscus yoga mat (sooo purrrty!)
-my guitar safely arriving, so i can compose my angst riddled law school ballads in all my spare time

377(?) days until 1.20.09!

You enjoyed geting your school supply list as a kid, didn't you?

Office supplies? You had a conversation about mechanical pencil brand superiority? What are you?
I hav come to the realization that law students have an unnatural affinity for office supplies. I am not sure if this is like a grad student thing in general, but it definately occurs at law school. And not only do we have strong opinions about which writing implements are superior, but we are fiercly brand loyal when it comes to purchasing them. For instance, I have a thing about pencils. They must be mechanical, with 0.7 lead. The erasers should be white, not black, and have that little metal thing on the bottom of them. I used to love my mechanical pencil, it was the Sumo grip one by sakura, that brand with the sparkly gel pens (you know, you have them in rainbow colors stashed at the bottom of one of your drawers). I paid lke $7 for it. I know $7 for a pencil?! But it was awesome, and we did awesome work together...hello who else got a 198 out of 200 on their second semester tax return? It, sadly, got lost in a move, and I have yet to find a suitable replacement...hence, I left the world of accounting and have gone to law school! (not the real reason, but that would be a great conversation piece...so, why did you go to law school? Oh, I lost my favorite pencil and just could't do accounting without it!)
I have had conversations that revolve around the benefits of ballpoint to felt tip, pencil to pen, spiral bound note books to composition books, but no item is as highly regaled by the law student as his highlighter! I have seen a "study fortress" constructed from them, I have seen color coded note taking systems making cases look like willy wonka threw up on them, and i have been handed many as marketing ploys. I have discovered if you want someone to remember you, you don't give out pens or stickers, you give out highlighters! Other than my laptop, it is the one thing I am lost without. I use them to find the holding (note to self: book briefing, try not to do it so much!), to point out important to dos, and most importantly, to draw with...wait, let's change that one to determining if we have all the parts of a CRAC seperate...
Highlighters are marvelous things. But you have to pick yours carefully, cause otherwise you make a mess. Are they to inky that they bleed on or through your paper, what do they feel like in your hand, how flouresent is the yellow, how is the line size control of said highlighter? I personally prefer the thin sharpie accent ones. If you are looking for a good highlighter take it out for a spin.

and that was my discussion on school supplies in preparation for the upcoming semester, I have my highlighters in front of me, but where did my books go?

Did that really just happen?

How does Hannah Montana turn back into Miley Cyrus during her concerts?

Is the second Hannah even a girl?! And what is up with that wig? Seriously, I mean come on, SERIOUSLY!!??!

New Year, New me...

My resolution....become a more efficient person!
This mainly refers to my technique, or lack thereof, for class prep, but it fits well in other parts of my life as well. With classes starting again soon I wonder if I can do that. Maybe I should have made different resolutions, like to wear sunscreen or loose weight. Those may ve to simplistic for me at this point. I need a life makeover, a change to ensure whatever I am doing, I am doing it to the best of my current ability. In short, I need a cloning machine, because I am positive if there were more of me, not only would I get more done, but the world would be a much better place. We are aiming for a wider, more substantial(i.e., 2010 Nobel Peace Prize winner...), search result when googling self other than my myspace page and the thousands of foreign language pages that have my last name being used as an adjective/verb(depending on the language).

Oh, and I am still writing my book, play, script, stream of conciousness, op-ed piece thingy...one day it will be complete, although it occured to me as I sat in yet another airport chair today that I am going in a completely different direction at this point: Chicklit-esque (only in the context that the main character is female and she ends up getting her man at some point...but in a Aaron Sorkin's West Wing C.J. finally hooks up with Danny well destroying her relationship with Toby kind of way)
