Car Protest

+ (August 31, 2002)

I haven't actually seen one of these fake parking tickets on an SUV, but maybe that's because I don't own one. I think the subtler gas station pump sticker is less offensive (pretty funny) and makes a broader statement. Remember... more

New York Job Fair Report

+ (August 30, 2002)

New York was fun and really strange. There were probably fifty or so employers, each with their own suite in a fancy hotel. Every twenty minutes an appropriately dressed law student would knock on the door of one of these... more

Job Fair Prep

+ (August 28, 2002)

So much to do, so little time. I'm off to New York tonight for a couple interviews tomorrow morning. I haven't researched the firms yet but hopefully I can do that this afternoon. I haven't thought about what I'm going... more

Start of the Semester

+ (August 27, 2002)

Classes have begun and school is off to a busy start. I'm still trying to get a couple books from half.com and other avenues to avoid the insane markups at the "Barnes & Nobel at BU" bookstore. They list used... more

Sports Resources

+ (August 25, 2002)

As of today, I have been to five professional baseball games during my 25 year existence. Today was my first venture into Fenway Park, the historic ball park from which I live only 5 minutes away. It was certainly interesting... more

It was orientation day today

+ (August 24, 2002)

It was orientation day today for the Journal of Science and Technology Law (note the updated staff list). It sounds like the Journal is going to be a lot of work, but at least somewhat interesting. Monday is the first... more

$2 Fare

+ (August 23, 2002)

It's all right there folks. $2 from New York to San Francisco with only one ominous day from which to choose... In other news, the bat has been "taken care of".... more

Pests Take Over

+ (August 21, 2002)

I'm back from my trip. Boston welcomed me with a lost bag, a bat above my front door (inside the building), dried nectarine juice all over the floor, maggots in the kitchen trash, dead plants, guano or some sort of... more


San Francisco hasn't changed much since I lived here (it's only been a year). There are some new buses, and the rents seem to be a lot more reasonable. Otherwise it's the same city. The weather is gloomy and cool... more

Off to San Francisco

+ (August 13, 2002)

I'm off to San Francisco. As advanced as technology is, "anywhere" as in "one can update a website from anywhere" really refers to "anywhere there is a computer". Hopefully there will be some updates, but no promises. My plants are... more

I want to be Amelie.... more


I just stumbled onto The Decline of Fashion Photography: An argument In pictures. Pretty interesting. It already seems like most of the clothes in fashion spreads are extremely over priced and ridiculous looking. Once you factor in the photography, people... more

Last Day of Work

Today was the official last day of work at the Legal Services Center. I didn't come close to finishing all the things I wanted to get done, but in the last two days I've managed to form a corporation, sell... more

The End of Summer

+ (August 8, 2002)

Trying to squeeze every last drop of juice from the squishy orange that is summer... Work is keeping me really busy lately, but tomorrow is the last day. That's right, the summer is almost over. Only a couple glorious (work-free)... more

Clients and 1Ls Emerge

+ (August 5, 2002)

It looks like the flyer for Law School Discussion has finally gone out to all the new BU 1Ls. People are starting to actually use the "Students' and Graduates'" board on that site. It's funny to think back to one... more

Bat on the Premises

+ (August 4, 2002)

Bat flies into room once, no one notices. Bat flies by again, "what the hell is that". Bat comes in for a third pass, "holy &*%$!". Residents go running... Upon sudden push from couch to hallway, foot slips on new... more

Newport Folk Festival

+ (August 3, 2002)

I just got back from the Newport Folk Festival featuring Bob Dylan. I actually don't know that much about Bob Dylan, so I won't say anything about the performance. I will make a couple of general observations: The Bob Dylan... more

Big Selling Law School Book?

+ (August 1, 2002)

Why is a book about law school the number 115 best selling book on the Barnes Noble website? Are there that many people going to law school? The same book is number 148,970 on Amazon. Wierd. Don't be fooled by... more
