Glimpses into the oh-so-exciting life of a 3rd year student at LSU Law School

Con Law II

It turns out Prof. Baier has a really great sense of humor. Right now, we're discussing Griswold v. Connecticut, which involves the right of married persons to purchase condoms for contraceptive purposes. Apparently, in 1958 CT had a statute that made it illegal to purchase contraceptives, and it was a crime for doctors to explain their use. At the same time, Massachusetts had a similar law, but at least theirs included a provision for the purchase of contraceptives for disease preventive purposes. It's all very exciting, let me tell you.

I just got off a horse, which puts me in a good mood for the day.

I also saw X-Men 3 last night. It was severely kickass, but still very very sad, especially at the end. It kind-of disturbs me when they mess up the characters. This movie went a long way toward making them into who they were in the comics. At first, I was quite skeptical of Ian McKellan as Magneto, he is not particularly physically imposing, while Magneto in the comics was pretty freakin' ripped, especially for an old dude. It was also cool all the random characters they pulled in, including the Toad and Arclight. I didn't catch Magneto's new female sidekick's name, but I'm wondering if she's meant to be Amelia Voght. Also, I was a bit confused by Dark Phoenix being dressed up as Scarlet Witch. I'd really like to see them pull in Apocalypse, now that Warren Worthington III (Woogie, among my friends for a reason I can't remember) is a character. Also, I'd like to see them do an Avalon/Asteroid M scenario - forget the Brotherhood of Evil Mutants, I WANT ACOLYTES! Not to mention Genosha, the Starjammers, the Shi'ar, and GAMBIT!

Yeah, I'm an X-Men geek. Deal with it.

Oh, and my best friend since we were like 2 years old just got engaged on Friday. I'm so happy for her - the guy's a real sweetie, and can put up with her, which takes a lot. The only part of that which sucks (because I am selfish and self-centered) is that I am now the only one of my close friends who isn't either married or engaged. Or even dating.

I'm picky. Like, for real picky. I'm sure that my idea of a dream guy isn't everyone's idea, but there are certain things that are absolute necessities before I'll give a guy the time of day. And I just haven't met anybody to whom I'm even remotely attracted. That's probably in great part b/c I'm stuck hanging out with lawyers, and yet I have little interest in them. I prefer someone less argumentative and less cocky than any male lawyer I've met. And I'm just not sympathetic to pseudo-tragedies, like guys who freak out when a cop pulls them over for driving through a blocked construction zone and has the gall to yell at them - but doesn't give a ticket. Always looking at the negative, and not seeing how great it is not to have been ticketed despite obviously being wrong, is a real turn-off. So is being cocky. So is always having to get in the last word.

That's enough ranting about guys. I could go on all day, but who wants to hear the bitter old maid dissin' on the asswipes that surround her? After all, they might be perfectly wonderful guys *snort* and I'm just wrong, right?

Stella, you sound like me x number of years ago.

My friends were either married, or in relationships. I couldn't even get a date.

Let me tell you...do NOT settle for anyone. Even if it takes you to my age to find the right one (there may be several of them out there too), WAIT!

Trust me, it's worth it. Divorce is very expensive (and 1 person does not a marriage make)

*whine* why can they all find "nice" guys who are pretty much what they're looking for, and all I can find is really pretty horses I can't afford? Hmm, maybe that's telling me something ...

This is just waiting for me to make a terribly snarky comment, but I'm going to behave myself (!) and not do it.

OK, you twisted my arm. I was just gonna say that there are nice guys everywhere, it's just that Stella's not interested in what most guys are interested in.

no, I'm not interested in enormous boobs ... football, OTOH, is another matter entirely. GEAUX AINTS!

Who said anything about enormous boobs?

 
At 7:19 PM, Blogger LSULawChick said...

"what most guys are interested in" ... doesn't that wind up at "enormous boobs"?

I was talking about intimacy, Stella. Enormous boobs. Sheesh. Anything more than mouthful is wasted.

I'm assuming you're referring to Jaws' (I, II, III, and The Revenge!) mouth ...

Oh, BTW, I can't use the Barkā„¢ at work anymore. The powers that be have blocked access to the AIR. Whatta buncha jerks!

I don't have time for the 'net while I'm at work. Yesterday, I wrote a petition for mandamus, a memo on the burden of proof for establishing a testator was incompetent at the time the will was signed, and a memo on the proper procedures to follow to get a second will probated as the proper will.

But I'm sure you're missed terribly.
