Well Really, What Could I Expect?

Okay, it's official now. I am certifiably the worst predicter of law school grades in the world. Also, this is my worst semester to date. Hooray! Wait...

Icky Picky Poo

Government attorneys have to do billing? And legal interns that are not getting paid to work in government attorney offices have to do pretend billing, too? WTF? This blows.

There goes about 99.3% of why I wanted to be a government attorney. Out the window.

Shame On Me

I totally just googled "The Bachelor" to see who wins 20 minutes before the end of the show. Interesting...

AH!

I start my summer legal "job" tomorrow. I'm a little scared, but not as scared as my friend who has to prosecute people. Once they're already convicted/in jail, the stress really is off.

TV Land

Well, the Law and Order season finale proved to be quite the refresher course on Evidence! Prior bad acts! Best evidence rule! Sufficiently indictia of reliability! Although I must point out that I never heard the Confrontation Clause mentioned at any time. Clearly I'm not the only one who suffers from such constitutional amnesia.

More Law and Romance

Before studying the First Amendment and how obscenity fits into freedom of expression, I had never heard of the word "prurient." So imagine my excitement when it turned up in a romance novel I'm reading right now!

He'd shifted so his shoulders effectively screened her from the room, but she had little doubt a certain amount of prurient interest was, nevertheless, focused on them.
—Stephanie Laurens, To Distraction

Never let it be said that it is inconsistent to be a law student and a lover of romance novels!

P.S. Sorry for all the romance novel posts lately, but I'm on vacation. This is what I do on vacation.

Phew!

Oh, thank you, Jesus!

Funny!

Was this title and cover an intentional joke? Because, seriously, how could anyone not look at this and think of farts? Tell me it's not just me.

What's The Diff?

I think I can say with 95% accuracy that Harlequin Presents romance novels are the most entertainingly-named books in the world. But they must be running out of ideas, because in May The Desert King's Virgin Bride was released, followed in June by The Sultan's Virgin Bride. I wouldn't be surprised if July yielded The Sheik's Virgin Bride, although it's more likely than not that's already been done.

UPDATE!
Thank you Google!

Don't Get Me Started, Don't Even Get Me Started...

Don't Get Me Started, Don't Even Get Me Started...

I can't tell you how many times over the past few years I've found myself saying that line and wondering where the heck it came from. I was pretty sure it was from Saturday Night Live, and a little more sure it was a Molly Shannon character but I could not remember for the life of me! Lucky for me Molly was the host tonight and she did a bunch of her old characters, one that was the female mullet-wearing comic Jeannie Darcy who frequently says, "Don't get me started. Don't even get me started."

I love it when I have resolution to things like that are bugging me!

THIS JUST IN!

I hate Microsoft Live Mail more than I hate the mannequin I saw at Macy's yesterday that had leggins on under bermuda shorts.

I Heart Meg Cabot

As if I needed another reason to love Meg Cabot. But she gave me one anyway with her hilarious defense-of-romance-novel-readers/favorite-romances post (I can't seem to get a permalink, so it's the May 11, 2007 entry if you're confused). I love steamy romances written in the 1980's, too! There's nothing better! In the perfect world, Meg and I would be best friends...

Movie Review: Notes on a Scandal

This is a very creepy movie. Judi Dench creeped me out big-time. I don't know why Cate Blanchet got a nomination and Judi didn't.

Up and Running

I'm more than a little sad to be leaving my nearly two years of archived material behind at the old blog, but I guess some sacrifices have to be made. So sad. :(

The good news is that I have finished all my finals and am officially on summer break! I would tell you all about how finals went but apparently there is a tattler at my law school that likes to run to the dean and complain about innocent, well-intended students blogs that mention exam material after the exam has been taken. So now you all know why I switched.

Welcome!

Hello friends and family! Welcome to my new blog that I was forced to start because my fellow law students are totally weenies! All the fun of the old blog will pick up soon, only with anonymity!
