Laguna Beach Top Quotes of the Night

Kami and Kendra crashing Rocky's party:

Kami: We're goin to crash a party!
Kendra: I just just don't want her to think that she can come to my and that would be ok.
Kami: (matter of factly) Well of course she can't.
Kendra: You know what, that's why I feel bad, because of someone did this to me, oh my god.
Kami: We're not crashing a party, we're just merely showing up uninvited.

Cameron and Jessica leaving dinner:

Jessica: Would you be sad if I died?
Cameron: I'd probably just call up Kendra

Time to shake off the dust

So I was attempting to retire from blogging, but we're back in school, and school is not the same for me without YCGAfBA. Tear. So I'll try to get back on the horse using the baby steps method. So today's will be short, and mostly unfunny.

I remember 1L year, when everyone got here an hour before classes started, furiously rereading cases before class, hoping not to get called on, but still generally excited to be here.

Then there was 2L year, we showed up late for class, added and dropped until we got a schedule that fit with our work schedule and still let us sleep in one or two days a week, and generally didn't really care to be back.

Then there is 3L year, and I quote: "Man, it is pouring outside, I don't think I can come to class in this."

Welcome back.

You'r an idiot

Sign spotted at the Steelers-Eagles preseason game Friday night in Philadelphia, held up by two fans in Eagles jerseys and motorcycle helmets, in big green letters:


I don't think that really comes through. Let me try again:

Big Ben -- don't forget Y-O-U-apostrophe-R helmet.


On the other hand, as a friend points out, "I have to hand it to 'em. I thought I had seen all the possible ways to screw up the permutations of 'your.' This is new and creative."

Aww, aren't the 1Ls cute?

Overheard this morning:

1L girl: "No, I think I'm going to the library. I need to read Mayberry v. Mathison."

Blogger trouble?

Am I the only one who can't log in to Blogger? Come to think of it, I haven't been able to log in since they announced the new Blogger Beta like a week ago. These posts are coming to you via email, and that works OK. But it's annoying.

Overheard in the card aisle

A couple shopping for a birthday card:

Woman: "Happy birthday, and many, many more."
Man: "What? No. 'Many, many more'? Listen, she's ninety-two, and nobody wants her to make it to ninety-three."
Woman: "Hm, you're right. How about this one? 'Peace for your soul, joy for your spirit, love for your heart. Inside--May these things be yours, especially today.'"
Man: "That's not bad. It doesn't say say 'we love you' anywhere in it. Isn't there one that just says 'it's your birthday'?"
Woman: "Not that I can see. Maybe we can make a custom one."
Man: "No way am I spending an extra two dollars on this. Let's just get that last one. She won't read it anyway."

Done and done

Today was my last day at The Job. Happy to be done, I have to say. Oddly enough, the last two days were the best of the entire summer, and not just because I was looking forward to being finished. Finally got around to a pretty interesting project--wrote an appellate brief on a very boring issue which I really liked. Now that is something I could do for a living.

Class starts on Tuesday. I presume that means there will be more procrastination to be done, which means more blogging. I guess we'll see.

Reap what you sow

I do not exactly have what you'd call a green thumb. Where I grew up, we tried to put together a garden, but it would inevitably get eaten by deer or run over by the center fielder in our side-yard baseball/kickball/whiffleball games. So when we planted 11 tomato plants, 1 cucumber, and 5 pepper plants this spring, I thought maybe we'd get a couple of meals out of it. Well, today we pulled off about 15 pounds of tomatoes, and now I expect to do so about every week for the next month or so, maybe more. We've got cucumbers the size of my . . . arm, and plenty of peppers to boot. Lyco would be proud.

So, I guess my point is, if any of you need tomatoes (mostly roma, but some other ones too), I am your man.

Not a very blogtastic week in my world. Sorry.

Did I ever tell you . . .

that my childhood dream was to become a fighter pilot in the Air Force?

Yeah, I gave up on that in about second grade when my friend told me on the bus that in the Air Force you have to make your bed every day.
