Give me a break

by Armen

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.

I was mainly going to read thru the old De Novo archives. That, and watch the Rose Bowl. I don't know if you heard, but Texas is playing in it. It should be pretty good.

It is now the end of the day, and I could not come up with anything better than, "I fart in your general direction."

You could have said "If you were at Boalt for law school instead of UT, you might not be waiting to hear back about that Chick-fil-a night manager thing."

But that would have been pretty tacky.

The notion that "the president bleeds Texas burnt orange" seems absurd on its face (and yes I realize the whole article is meant humorously), considering that he never has attended a school in the UT system -- actually was rejected by W&V's institution. Surely Bush bleeds Harvard crimson if anything, or perhaps Yale blue blood.

Then again, I always think of Frank Deford's assessment as he was at the Harvard-Yale game one year: The Ivy Leagues have the same attitude towards athletic glory that Victorians had toward sex. They want it but they can't admit it and so they don't often get it.
