Thou Shall Not Covet

I want one of these soooo bad! I am taking donations! Hehe.

It probably says a great deal about my views on marriage given that I get really angry at the entire concept of community property and the fact that even in non-community property states, you can't disinherit your spouse.

I just spent two hours of my life that I will never get back watching a Lifetime Movie Network movie about hazing at college sororities, starring Hilary Swank, Mark-Paul Gosselaar, Sarah Chalke, and Jenna von Oy.

Clearly I will do anything to avoid studying for the bar exam.

Another Carrie Complaint

Ms. Underwood's music continues its stunning lack of originality with her latest single Last Name. I believe Mr. Alan Jackson covered that topic in I Don't Even Know Your Name, what, fourteen years ago?

It is my fondest wish that someday the country music business and country fans will pull their heads out of their asses and realize that this girl is not all that and a bag of chips, but rather just one more singer of the completely unoriginal, cliched, and uninteresting music that's coming out of Nashville lately.

If anyone feels the compelling need to buy me a belated graduation gift, I have a few humble suggestions...

This lady is funny. And judging by the comments I am not the only one who appreciates a good George IV joke every once in a while.

Torts Question

Let's say, hypothetically, that you were going on a bike ride one morning. Let's say that your labradoodle was in the front yard with your dad as you peddled away and had to be held by the collar to be stopped from running after you. Let's say that said labradoodle was released once you were significantly down the road and out of sight, yet still took off running after you. Let's say you were nearly to an intersection when your labradoodle caught up to you quite unexpectedly. Let's say you got off your bike, used your bike lock for a leash, and walked the labradoodle back towards the house while pushing your bike. Let's say you met your dad halfway back. Let's say your dad used a strip of leash to slap against the labradoodle to discipline him from doing something so dangerous again. Let's say that in his zeal for discipline he also managed to lash you across the leg, quite painfully, leaving a red welt.

Is that battery?

But of course, this is all purely hypothetical.

Oh Dear

I was walking through Borders today when I heard a young female voice behind me say "This store is boring. Ooh, at least they have CDs."

I'm not sure what I found the most remarkable. The fact that someone doesn't share my bibliophilia, or the fact that this young lady somehow seemed surprised about what she found in a bookstore. Last time I checked, all bookstores pretty much have the same inventory...

A Good Day

The decision in Boumediene v. Bush is in and it's fabulous!

Thanks, Tony!
