Exam time

Why is it that, now that our Evidence exam is here, all these people have decided to relocate to different seats from where they were the whole semester? Even the ones who weren't cramped by other students. Yes, I'm talking to you, Girl Whose Pants Are Too Tight, and Girl I've Never Seen Before. This is very inconvenient to me, and I do not appreciate it.

That was really not fair

You know, exams are stressful enough without having your computer crash the day before your first one, causing you to lose your outline and several days' worth of class notes. Fortunately I take most of my notes by hand, and have been able to fill in the missing days with a classmate's help. And I'll be able to use my wife's computer for the exam. But the outline is still gone, and that computer has been known to freeze if it comes unplugged, and those are just two little stressers I did not need. Dammit.

CBS needs to fire all of its announcers

All of them.

The following exchange just happened in the Bengals game when they showed a sideline shot of Marvin Lewis:
Play-by-play guy: "Bengals owner Mike Brown made his best decision ever when he hired that guy right there."

Color guy: "To use a sports analogy, he hit a homerun with that one."

a) "To use a sports analogy"? Like anyone watching a football game doesn't know that "homerun" is a sports term?
b) Technically, that was a metaphor.
c) And since, you know, it's a football game, why not try using a football metaphor?

A night on the town

Fun: Running into an attorney you used to work with at the bar while celebrating the end of classes.

Awkward: Realizing that said attorney is completely wasted on a Thursday night.

Really awkward: Being introduced to the attorney's friend, who says "[Name], alright, nice to meet you." And then turns to the attorney you used to work with and immediately says, "Hey, [Attorney], it's your turn to pack a bowl."
