I will never forget my first class or my first day of law school

Not only was I called on first, but you figured out when you could zone out real fast...and in honor of those of you that zoned out, a special news story to help you recall the awkwardness of the first person to correct a professor...

Source of Endless Proof of Human Inferiority to, lets say, guinea pigs...

PhotoshopDisasters

All I have to say is, Wow, OK I kinda understand issues in movies and tv shows with continuity, (because ensuring things are the same from scene to scene as your only job with actual footage of what you need it to look like right there is so difficult!), but come on people, you are altering an already perfect picture most of the time to make it more perfect...how many photoshoppers' does it take to remove Beyonce's 3rd arm?

To whom it may concern:

This goes out to all the television executives out there...
Your season finales sucked! First, we had this little hiccup called the writers strike. I was devastated! You took my shows from me right in the apex of all the season long plot lines. You then went on to eliminate numerous episodes and lost a large portion of the point of these plots. Second, cliffhangers?! After the writer's strike and the rumblings of a possible actor's strike you would dare to not wrap everything up?! Who cares if you leave no loose ends, I am still going to watch next season! This one is mostly aimed at you ABC, for the other ones kinda sorta skirted around the cliffhanger, they left it at what could happen rather that what did happen; you on the other hand, you left us with the what did happen question...
Third and most of all, this goes to the reality shows...I did not like your endings. AI, little David should have won; DWTS, out of the final 3, Cheryl and her partner should have won; and, Hills people, will someone please stop painting Lo as a super-villanette and please stop airing scenes of Speidi. Furthermore, maybe you should just continue airing new episodes weekly and not show crappy short seasons.
At least I have The Paper to see me through for a few more weeks...

My birthday is in 31 days!

If you are at a loss for what to get me I have an idea:

BUY ME A Wii!!

Why a Wii?
#1...you can play it with me!
#2...if you can find one, you have magical powers, and discovering that means you get a present for yourself too
#3...an avatar created in your likeness!
#4...it would make me happy,and isn't that what we all want in life, to make sure I end up happy?
#5...this b-day means I am getting up there and I currently have no life so see #4

Reader Item That Gets a Double Take of the Day

Israel, Syria Peace Talks Confirmed

not so much strange, funny as it is strange, did I just enter a parallel universe...

Iron Man

Are you into Marvel Comic book characters? Do you like the idea of real issues being solved by these characters? Well, if you answered yes, or possibly even no, this movie is for you!
Iron Man delivered. There was never a boring moment, the plot flowed nicely, and even if you knew nothing of Iron Man before seeing the film, you managed to walk away with the full understanding of the character. The actors portraying each character gave great performances. I was especially impressed with the make-up; other than that voice, Jeff Bridges was pretty unrecognizable as Obadiah Stane. The plot was littered with glimmers of plot-lines where the sequels can pick up, and there will be a sequel (possibly more, who knows what the new Marvel Studios has put into the pipeline!); however there was one issue, the easter egg type clip at the end, was it really necessary for me to sit through 20 minutes of credits for a 30 second clip?
This franchise so far is worth every penny it has earned so far, but with all the hype, you have to wonder if they can live up to it a second time around...we'll have to just wait and see!

Random Thought of the Day

Something I have to remind myself of: The West Wing is not real, no matter how much I wish it were so; no one in any administration can match the amazingness the Bartlett staff had...

Something that makes this difficult: candidate stealing ideas from plot of said show to use in their campaign.

How I do it: Speidi was never invited to the White House Easter Egg Roll in West Wing world, only in real life could something that strange occur.

Pirates 3 in HD!

Since I have been at my parents, I have experienced the wonder of their cable. They have HD, they have DVR, they have 100+ foreign language stations, it's pretty awesome when you feel like vegging out. Ironically, there has been very little on the 800 stations that I feel like watching. I find myself being drawn back to the same movie, Pirates of the Caribbean: At the World's End. I am pretty sure I have now seen it five or six times since I got home, and each time, something about the kid in the opening scene bothered me. This morning I watched it in HD and suddenly the answer became clear...the kid has braces! I am all for orthodontia, but I am pretty sure that they did not have ceramic bracket braces, or any braces for that matter in this historical period.
This is the clip...the quality isn't fantastic, but hey I found it on YouTube and you can kind of see it if you look really close...


Sure the braces are "clear" and the kid works in the small part, but come on Disney, how many kids tried out for the part that did not have braces? I am pretty sure one of them could have played the role of the singing street kid about to get hung just as well.

Random Thought of the Day

I used to despise reality television and then, I went to law school...now, The Hills is over until August and I don't know if I will survive!!
This is why I never watched it before, it feeds on that part of the brain that craves unintelligent banter. I used to be able to suppress it, with shows like the West Wing but there are more stupid people in America then people who get the humor and plot lines in those type of shows...so America, I have stooped to your level and am counting down the days until I can get my next hatred of Speidi fix...

This calls for a really big glass of milk!

14 tons of spilled Oreos...

Greeting from sunny southern CA!


Sorry for the lack of posting...I've been jet laged, catching up on the slept i missed during finals, outside...needless to say, I've had slightly better things to do:)
Currently I am lounging in my backyard trying to finish the book i was reading and getting my much needed daily dose of Vitamin D.

The thermometer thing out here says its just above 80 and breezy, which is why I am here today and not down at the beach...it'll be like 60 there, better off to wait until tomorrow when it hits 100 here, cause then it'll be 80 down there and much more pleasant all around. Unfortunately for me my parents have moved in between an elementary school and a parochial school so I currently have recess on all sides; fortunately for me I have an iPod with awesome earbuds.
Just so I'm not all sunshine and daisys (so unlike me, I know!), gas is either at or above $4 and I have tanlines from when I helped my mom gather her zillions of lemons from her freaking tree this weekend...

PS...Pinkberry kicks Rita's icey ass!!!
