Friday Drive-by #3

Posted by T. Greg Doucette on Oct 2, 2009 in Friday Drive-by | Subscribe

Maybe it’s because I like my alma mater, maybe it’s because I was born and raised in the South, or maybe it’s just because I’m a guy — while most of my classmates love Fridays because it means the academic week is over, I love Fridays because it means college football tomorrow :D

So with another week behind us and my brain switched into football mode, here’s a handful of links to stuff I used to kill time in LRA ;)

  • Sherpa on Scalia — I’m amused so many people who dislike the Justice’s opinions agree with him on this issue, and I generally like the guy’s opinions but think he’s completely, totally, and irrefutably wrong here (Fight the Hypo)
  • Jansen offering up some excellent tips on making it through 1L year (No634)
  • John dovetails with some of his own, especially #1 (Fearfully Optimistic)
  • And Mariel reminding everyone to keep their head up (HATE is easy…love takes COURAGE)
  • One of Huma’s Business Casual Superstar selections — linked not because I could ever actually pull off this outfit, but because of the XKCD comic at the bottom ;) (The Reasonably Prudent Law Student)
  • Some of Soleil’s thoughts on men1 (The Divine Details)
  • The Bitter Lawyer likes lists — this is one you probably shouldn’t read near classmates (The Bitter Lawyer)
  • Finally, from the selection of non-law time diversions, for some reason I’m just now hearing Eminem’s response track re Mariah Carey and Nick Cannon. Hilarious. (YouTube)

Have a great weekend folks! :D

  1. Most of us aren’t that bad, you ladies just tend to fall for the crazy ones :P []

Hah! I’ve linked to two of the same articles (Dennis’s and Sherpa’s) in my weekly list, too! Great minds find great posts.

Also? Love XKCD. :-D How crushingly sad that the cartoon I posted is true for both sides of the gender equation. :-P Clearly, we all fail.

Epic fail – how did I not know about your blog?! I’m adding you to my list of fellow 1Ls. I hope everything is going well for you :D [and xkcd is amazing]

@Huma: Agreed x2 :)

@JJC: You have noooo idea…

@Mariel: Thank you :) I’ve been perfectly fine cruising under the radar since this whole thing started — it was basically just a window in my life for the folks I left in other cities to peek into, but then I happened to stumble across a bunch of other awesome law ppl in the process :D

Talk about falling for the crazy ones! I’ve had guy friends who stayed with women who hit them, threw things at them, got them fired, all sorts of crazy…
