a few thoughts on monday afternoon...

--"ocean avenue" by yellowcard is such a bad song, but it's so catchy. it's one of those songs that rings in my head, that i want to sing along to whenever i hear it, except i'm screwed because i don't know the words. therefore, i like it. also, it evokes happy memories...the radio stations in chicago don't ever play it, but the buzz, the radio station in kansas city, plays it all the time. thus, it would always come on in the car when my boyfriend and i rode around kansas city, around lawrence, anywhere near there. good times...

--i live with nerds...such nerds...and it's paradise. it's clear we're all insane when our unofficial apartment theme song is jingle no. 2 for the national poison control centre, and one of the most rampant running jokes among the roommates is poking them and saying "tort", since poking someone if they don't necessarily want to be poked is battery, a tort. (yes, one of my roommates is a 1L, so maybe it's not THAT random...or maybe is is, still.)

--thank goodness mock trial season is back. i'm not competing this year, since i've graduated and that makes me ineligible. but, i'm coaching. i've been in tryouts the last two days, watching first-year after first-year after first-year try out. tonight, three more people are slated to try out, and then we are assigning teams. they won't be stacked, but it will still be an LSAT logic game from hell, since we have so many more mockers than we have room for. we're going to have to decide whether to expand to five teams and deal with that logistical nightmare, or stay at four teams and deal with that personnel nightmare. either way, it's going to be horrid. still, despite that, it's going to be so nice to return to something i love, and to have something to take up at least some of my time when i'm not at work. i'm going to be a much happier person for this.
