Of course, this is all moot since this season never happened, but just hypothetically.

And then I woke up with this song stuck in my head for some reason (go to the 1 minute mark). Starz on Demand has the movie right now, and my brother and I actually watched it last week because it was something we used to watch as kids, which is why I even remember the song.

Actually, he did know what his starting salary was going to be. That was one of the major tempting things! I mean, if you're going to rag on it, plz know ur facts!! No offense intended.
The post she's referring to is here, and it has HIMYM spoilers, so if you're that far behind still, beware and read no further.
Anyway, spockie13: you are referring to the fact that Marshall gets slipped a piece of paper by John Cho with the salary written on it, as is the style in all tv shows and movies (and I've never understood why we're not allowed to know how much money someone is offering someone else, but that's a separate issue). I, on the other hand, am talking about the fact that in the legal world, for any substantial law firm (which this clearly was supposed to be), the starting salaries for jobs are public. No lawyer, especially one coming from Columbia, would be so uninformed as to not know what the market salary is right now at a big firm in New York. My "ragging" on HIMYM has nothing to with the money being tempting once Marshall has his socks knocked off hearing about it at dinner, and everything to do with the fact that no lawyer would be unaware of the starting salary past his first day of law school! So perhaps you should know your facts--read a blog or a website.
What kinds of things did I want to save? My pictures, for example! And as promised, here are some ridiculous pictures of my puppy. Here he is dressed as an elf, and oh, what a happy elf he is. Mwahahaha.

Announcer: That was Brandon Mebane [Reva's ears perk up, she starts looking around], rookie out of California [Reva starts cheering out loud, even though she has no idea what's going on]...who missed the tackle.
Oops! That's ok, Brandon, you'll get 'em next time! And I'd have cheered for you regardless. Go Bears!
I'm leaving today to go home, and I'm glad because there's really nothing to do out here! Especially since some people have already left, which depletes our already-undersized group this semester (we have three people gone, between Adam abandoning us for the frozen tundra (which he has learned his lesson about, I should think!) and two other people studying abroad). That's ok, though, I'm going to need to rest up for next semester -- last time I'll ever be in school, you bet your ass we're going to make the most of it! Exciting times to follow...not all of which will be documented on this blog, sorry. The internets is too public for some awesome stories. Those you just tell your friends via AIM when you finally make it home at 3:30 am. For example.

You are retarded.
PS: We almost could have used this as a hypo for my EU law class! I'm so glad that's over with now. Maybe I can find some helpful articles about bankruptcy to help me study for my exam tomorrow. The exam for which I am screwed, in case you were wondering.

I'm told that the writers strike has basically killed the rest of the tv season...come on people, it's my last semester of law school, I have so much time for tv now! Why are you doing this to me???
Speaking of school, three exams down, one to go. I sadly am completely unprepared for that one (on Friday), but hopefully the rest of today and tomorrow will be ridiculously productive and it'll be ok. I'm sure that's very likely...especially now that I've finished season 3 of House.

I really hate it...I think it is super whiny. According to the DMV site, though, there is another option--this is the standard one, but you can request the "www.dc.gov" plate instead if you want it. I'm not thrilled about a license plate with a website on it, either, but I'd rather have that than their stupid whining. Of course, what I'd really love is the "National Black Scuba Divers Association" plate, which is one of the 14 organizational plates that they offer, but I have to get authorization from the organization saying I'm allowed to get the plate...which might be difficult to get, for some reason.
What makes me really bitter? Even if I was going back to California, I still wouldn't be able to get a Cal license plate, because the only collegiate plate they offer is for UCLA. Hmph!

What prompted this declaration of love? The show Psych on USA (it's funny and quirky) had a random "holiday episode" last night, in the middle of its hiatus. But I get to see it, because even though I didn't know about it, my DVR did! Oh happy days.
So I do most of my studying in my room, sitting on my bed, because I like to be comfy. Sometimes I mix it up and work at my desk, but that kinda sucks (even though I love my desk...it's huge, and holds all of my crap) because it's not comfy sitting in my chair (which is actually a wooden chair from my kitchen table) for hours on end. Today, however, I couldn't take being in my room anymore. I needed a change of scenery. So where am I now? Downstairs at my coffee table. At least it's something different...
You know what's bad news? Puppy mills.
You know what's awesome? Coming up with not one, but TWO super good presents for people, in one day. Neither one will actually be a Christmas present, but they'll be given someday. And fawned over!
This is pretty funny:
I'll try to get back with the posting, but for now I just want to read the last 20 pages of this stupid chapter so I can be done for the night! Actually, I would have been done a while ago, but I've spent the last half hour googling WWII navy posters trying to find this amazing poster that they had at the Pentagon which I really loved and wanted a print of, but now I can't remember what's written on the poster so that makes it impossible to find. Especially because it wasn't one of those common ones you see everywhere. I know I've seen it before though, so I'll keep looking! The message is awesome, it's basically saying, hey sailors, watch out, because that hot girl you're talking to could be a spy for the enemy! Cracks me up.
Oh, there was a post on Above the Law about all the problems Duke Law has had with our website etc, and some of the comments ended up being about how hot (or not) the girls are here. I found that amusing.

UPDATE: He's in! Not sounding very excited yet, but whatever. Go Bears!
And while long-time readers know that I am not the biggest fan of college basketball for the most part, I actually saw the last quarter of the Cal-Missouri game last night. I'd just like to point out that we are 5-0 this year--maybe this is our year for basketball, huh?? And also, for the record, it's not that I don't like college basketball, but I grew up watching the NBA (my parents are huge Lakers fans) so college just seems...weird to me. And I mostly hate Duke basketball for getting in my way, so it's not the sport itself. I just wish somehow, someday (and by someday I mean this season, at Duke) they'd play Cal so I could go see my Golden Bears and root against Duke, as I would be required to do, regardless of the likelihood of us actually beating Duke. Oh, speaking of, I saw a license plate a couple of days ago that was "H8NDOOK." Seems to me that if your license plate has the name of your enemy, you're giving them too much power.

*I don't know what Kevin Riley did to Tedford to piss him off, but it must have been bad, seeing as Nate Longshore has not been healthy for weeks, and yet Riley still doesn't get any playing time. (Note: my previous decision to murder Kevin Riley, and his children, has been revoked. I still blame him for his mistake, but have decided murder might have been harsh).
*I'm glad that I decided that the season was officially over back after our loss to UCLA, so that nothing since then counts. It was a good call.
*I was going to say something mean about cutting off Lavelle Hawkins' hands since he's obviously not using them anymore, but I've calmed down in the last hour, so I'll keep it to myself.
*The only good thing about today? WVU losing to Pitt. Yet another number 2 team losing to an unranked team. Shocking. I didn't say it before because I didn't want to jinx it (because I really wanted WVU to lose), but part of me was actually expecting it. I mean, six times in a season?!?! I blame this curse for the disaster that is our entire season.
