Break's almost over

We start back Thursday night with White Collar Crime. Roscoe and Kellus will be duly scandalized to know that I've already cracked my case--read through Madison v. Marbury over lunch on Saturday. The book's a mother: over 1,500 pages, plus a supplement. Something tells me this one's the one I'll be dragging to the gym this semester.

Other than that, not much is happening. I did have my first 'life of the litigator' experience last week--the big case I was working settled on the eve of the big hearing where we were going to exclude all their evidence, discredit all their witnesses, see them driven before us, and hear the lamentation of their women (if you don't get this reference, see here and here). Ah, well.

Also, the Deadman household got totally sucked into Battlestar Galactica over the weekend, but still not to the extent of ordering up the 'frackin'' cable to get Sci-Fi. After watching the mini-series pilot and most of season 2.5, I just have one question:

Why does Starbuck always look like she could use a shower? For some reason this chick gives off a vibe like she just always smells a little.

What luxury....not starting back until Thursday!

We started today. Good news is that enough grades have come in for me to be sure that I can remain a law student. Bad news is that this semester, I'm taking Business Associations, Secured Transactions, Wills and Estates, PR, and Family Law. Yuck.

She looks like she smells because: 1. She is hot. 2. She is a solider. 3. Surviving a Cylon on-slaught trumps long hot showers. Oh did I mention, she is HOT.

I didn't know B.O. was this year's new "it" fragrance, but, live and learn. She's a bit beefy for my taste.

Andria--good to hear you're hanging in there. Maybe you'll find some of the classes OK at least (well, probably not PR). I've got Business Enterprises, which I'm guessing is the same as your Business Associations. Also, the mock trial problem came in: it's a personal injury case from a car wreck. Call me the Texas Hammer!!!
