I think I go out of my way to be an ass...and this is yet another example. I'm watching Comedy Central instead of studying. So, I'd like to prevent YOU from studying as well. It's not all that different from W&V's desire to prevent minorities from playing scattergories.
What are your plans for winter break?
Oops! Did I just put that thought in your head? You wanted to sleep all day and all night? Watch some daytime TV? Say hello to wife/kids/brothers/sisters/parents/grandparents/Bigfoot? Well whatever you had planned, good luck getting it out of your mind. Just go ahead, I dare you. Pick up Gilbert's and tell me you're not thinking about reading a mindnumbing pop magazine that requires three neurons working part-time to digest. [Added bonus to bad joke.]
Seriously though, I'm sick of the "What are you going to do this summer?" talk. If you want to emerge from caselaw land for a brief period, share your winter break plans below. If you're no longer part of the law school community, please share how you will find billable hours in a visit to (or from) the in-laws. And if you're planning on entering the law school community, please tell us how your vacation has been going thus far.
