Spreading Some Love

Just found this link to a directory of many law blogs, orgainzed by categories in terms of law students, law profs, etc. Have fun making new friends.

Laundry Time

Snakes on a Plane? How About Drunks on a Train??

On my way home from class this afternoon I chose a seat next to an older gentleman that I thought looked harmless enough. The second I sat down, I realized that he smelled as if he had been drinking since 9am. Not only that, but when I glanced down, I noticed that he was holding a beer can in a paper bag and was drinking! On the train! While he was already clearly drunk! He proceeded to try to strike up conversation with me, but honestly, I had no idea what he was saying, it was so slurred. I just smiled and nodded and pretended that my law textbook was the most fascinating thing I had ever seen.

I kind of felt sorry for him, though. I felt sorry for him that he felt the need to get drunk in the middle of the day, and couldn't even move away from alcohol for the duration of that short train ride. I felt sorry for him because he actually seemed rather pleasant, besides the fact that he was three sheets to the wind and stunk to the high heavens.

He reminded me of Leaving Las Vegas, which I just recently saw for the first time, and thought it was the most depressing movie I have ever seen. I hope that this man's fate isn't as grim; and if it in fact is, I really hope I don't run into him on the train again!

Ready for Ass-Kissing, Ass-Shaking, Ass-Buffing, or Whatever Else It Might Take

I have my first on-campus interview today. Just one, mind you, while most of my friends have multiple interviews today. No matter. I'm lucky to have gotten at least one.

I'm terrified. Besides the fact that I break into a sweat by just breathing, compound that with a heavy, dark-colored suit, control-top pantyhose, and nerves, and it doesn't matter how much deodorant I lather on, I'm sure to be a hot mess by the time I get some face time. But I'm going to give it all I've got - I'm going to go in there with the attitude that I can sell an iPod to a deaf person, and let's see where that gets me.

If all else fails, I guess there's always McDonald's. Or Cubicle Hell again; but I think I'd rather take McDonald's over Cubicle Hell.

Would you like fries with that?

Gotta Give a Shout Out QuizLaw, for featuring one of my recent posts in the weekly Blawg Review! (I think that's as close to Law Review as I'm getting in this lifetime...)

Reaching for the Tissues Already

The synopsis for Nicholas Sparks's new book, Dear John, is up on his website, and it sounds like a real tear-jerker! I can hardly wait for its release on October 30th!

Finally Solved the Problem

It appears that after much tinkering, I have solved the problem of the unruly comments, and now comments seem to be working in both Internet Explorer and Firefox. Whew!

Can't believe school starts in four days!! :-(

And speaking of school, as crusty as that subject might be, I totally did NOT rock my summer classes. Granted, the amount of work that I put in was minimal in comparison to how much I usually study for classes during the school year, but still - the curve should have been more in my favor because it was a summer class - hellooo, no one studies for summer classes!! Grrrr...

Best Thing Since Sliced Bread

You all know how much I despise cleaning; but lately I have discovered the best product for dusting I have ever used - the Swiffer Duster.

This thing is AWESOME - it picks up all the dirt on furniture, and it gets in all those hard-to-reach-places. I know, I sound like a commercial, but it really is true. It's woooooonderful. Check out their website for fun coupons and get dusting!!

Well That's Just F%&*ing Great!

You Are 36% Lady

You tend to make up your rules of etiquette, throwing all conventions aside.
And while you try to be a lady (sometimes), your behavior is often quite shocking.

What the hell?? I thought I was lady-like! Well, shit...(spitting on the ground...)

People You Meet At the Gym #1 - The Screamer

The Screamer is one of the more annoying yet elusive characters at the gym. What makes the Screamer most elusive perhaps is that one cannot usually predict who a "screamer" will be. Sometimes the Screamer is fat and balding, but he could very well be the most well-built man at the gym. The Screamer has even been known to be as young as a high school senior and as old as a senior citizen - you never know, until you hear the scream.

It usually starts out as a slight, low-pitched grunt while the Screamer is engaging in his weight lifting exercise of choice. As the repetitions increase, the sound of the grunt escalates, becoming a crescendo that can be ultimately described as a guttural shout one might expect of a man getting raped in a prison yard. The Screamer is never happy until he has the attention of the entire gym on him. He will continue to scream until every single member has looked his way. He thinks that their stares are complimentary, and they serve to further encourage his cries. What the Screamer does not realize, however, is that nearly everyone at the gym (except for other Screamers, of course), is actually internally making fun of the Screamer. What makes the Screamer so amusing is that the amount of weight that he is lifting is not nearly enough to warrant a scream, if a scream were ever to be warranted at all. Usually the amount of weight the Screamer will have stacked on his leg press for instance, is much less than my grandmother could handle; and in all honesty, if it's that heavy, why doesn't he try taking some weight off???

Also noticeable is the facial expression that accompanies the screams. The Screamer will contort his countenance in an expression that can only be described as CONSTIPATED. His brows furrow, his nose crinkles, his eyes squeeze shut, and his lips curl back exposing his teeth. Oftentimes there will be a slight "hissing" escaping the clenched teeth after the scream, but this is not always required.

What IS required is that every other Screamer in the gym, spurred on by the mating call of the first Screamer, feels the need to enter the shouting competition, where they all attempt to outdo each other as the loudest, baddest mo' fo' at the gym.

So to all you Screamers out there that make a visit to the gym incomprehensibly uncomfortable, WE'RE NOT IMPRESSED!

Time to Start Selling Myself

And if I don't get a job at a decent firm next summer, I just might have to start selling myself in another way!!

The notices for on campus interviewing are starting to come out, and so far I only have one interview set up. I'm a little bummed about it, to be honest; and if I can't get a job via this on-campus crap, how will I find a job?? Granted I could always stick with The Firm, but it's so unstructured, and I could make more money selling hot dogs on Broadway than working there next summer. So I'm going to give this interview business my best shot, and really hope for more than one firm contacting me here. That's the thing about law school, I guess - isn't it always something??

I Need a New Blog

Template, that is. I'm SO BORED with this one!!! However, I'm not particularly CSSS-savvy, so this is going to be quite a project. Basically, I want to make my OWN template, but I have no idea how to go about this. I've been looking online for "how-to's" on template designs, but with no luck! Grrrrrrr......any suggestions?? Is anyone good at making templates that would like to impart some of that knowledge with me??

Dobes On Film

Just this last week, I noticed two separate Doberman Pinscher sightings on TV!!

First up was while checking out Justin Timberlake's new video for Sexy Back. There's a quick cameo of a dobe barking. Not quite sure why the doberman is there, but the video, like the song, has a whole lot going on, so it's anybody's guess.
The next sighting was during this week's episode of Entourage. When Vince and E (I heart E) visit director Billy Walsh, he's walking two dobes, who are later seen watching Queens Boulevard with the group.

Dobes rock!
