What I Learn From Watching TV (the next part in a continuing series)

I'm watching a high-def documentary about Katmandu. It appears to be about culture and history and stuff like that. They lost me at the beginning, when they started off with scenes from the market in the center of town. I thought "oohhh, shopping - look at that scarf! I want to go there!" Now I'm just sort of half-watching while I wait for them to stop showing temples and stuff and go back to the part about the market.

The problem with low-carb diets

My neighbor downstairs is making toast. I can tell, because the smell comes through the heating vents. I'm not sure it's toast. It could be waffles. But it's definitely carbs. Jesus H. Christ it smells good. MMMmmmmmm carbs. AAAAaaaaaahhhhh. I want to just sit on the floor by the vent and lick the little carb molecules off it.

In law-related news, I made it through class tonight without cursing at the professor. It was hard, because he is possibly the biggest jackass EVER. Most of the questions he asks in class makes me want to raise my hand and answer either "what the fuck are you talking about?" or "you know that no one knows the answer to that question, so why the fuck are you asking?"

Hi Mom!

Remember those people with the fake blog who were supposed to be RV-ing across America and parking in Walmart parking lots? Right now, at this very minute, my mother's RV is parked in a Walmart parking lot. Somewhere out there in the flat middle part of the country. Luckily we also have Walmarts here at the bumpy edges of the country that she can park in when she comes out for graduation.

Morse v. Frederick

. . . aka the "Bong Hits 4 Jesus" case.

One of my classes requires us to go to court and observe a few trials. I have a terrible urge to show up at the municipal court wearing a t-shirt that says "Fuck the Draft" and see what happens. I'm pretty sure that no one at the court would get it.

Nothing to do with law school

How old do you have to be to find this video funny?

This is what the internet is all about

Turtle porn. Damn, I'm proud to be an American.

What I Learn From Watching TV

How come the cops on CSI never draw chalk outlines around bodies? When did that stop being an important step in crime investigation?

Best TV To Watch While Studying

If there's one skill that I am going to be an expert at when I graduate, it's studying while watching TV. 4 years ago, law was the most exciting thing ever. Now it's exciting for about 3 minutes at a time, and then I lose interest and have to do something else.

So far the best show to watch while studying -- even better than Law & Order -- is "Sunrise Earth" on the high-def station. Each show is an hour long, and it's about a sunrise. The sun rises, the birds chirp, the butterflies flutter, the sun rises some more, the birds chirp a little louder, and so on. Sometimes there's monkeys. Today there's a waterfall. It's soothing, and when I glance up from page 2 billion of the gazillion-page paper that I'm writing: oooh, a beautiful butterfly!

Bar Exam

"No chips of any kind or other foods that cause audible crunching sounds are allowed."

"DO NOT bring any of these items with you inside the Examination Room:"
"backless shoes"
. . .

no backless shoes? no purses? I should start planning my outfits now, so I'm ready by July. And start testing my favorite snacks for the audibility of their crunchiness.
