Not Even Gilette's Mach 28 can cut it this close

by Armen

On Friday morning at 8:30 AM I had my second draft of a brief due for Written and Oral Arguments, the one unit pass/no pass class that's mysteriously taking up more time than the 2, 3, and 4 unit graded courses. Also at 8:30 in the morning, I have Civ Pro, which means the paper was due about 30 mins before that time so that I'd have time to run to class. Long story short, around 3 AM, when I got sleepy, I set my alarm for 5:30 in the morning and went to sleep. I woke up at 8:15, to find the alarm still properly set (not PM or anything), but it had not gone off. I managed to QUICKLY edit the paper and get it in close enough to the deadline. I also managed to miss apparently one of the best classes where the Professor Civ. Pro. sang and played his guitar. This is about as bad as the time I missed the class when he talked about How Great How Appealing and the SCOTUSblog are.

So I lay out three challenges:

1. What is YOUR law school nightmare? Sleeping through an exam? Soiling your pants during an exam? Not finding anyone to go to the Barrister's Ball?

2. What's the awesomest class you've missed? Attended?

3. Something about some guy getting arrested for spamming via AIM. Might be interesting if you're into that stuff. I realize this is not really a challenge.

Maybe the alarm went off and you didn't wake up? That happened to me once - but I did remember dreaming about someone breaking into my car.

Now I have a radio alarm set at full volume and on the other side of the room. So far have not managed to get over there, turn it off and get back to bed without waking up.

The alarm was still on when I did wake up, meaning at best I would have hit snooze, which is on a strict (unchangeable) 4 min cycle. Plus if a mouse farts I jump out of bed usually, so I'm not one to sleep through an alarm or turn it off and not remember. Or I am. The video replay will tell the story.

My worst nightmare is getting called on by one of the mean professors who like to go for the throat. To this end, I have created a little risk-factor quiz to try to hedge my bets on getting called on, so that I'll know how much to prepare for class.
