Stomp, Stomp, Stomp

Today I ventured away from my usual study perch due to the just plain moronic football talk occuring near my normal study spot. (To said moron, 1) don't talk so loud in the library, and 2) Matt Leinart played great last night, it was the Cardinals defense and kicker that lost them the game.) Being ousted from my normal spot, I ventured over to the lounge area outside 2.138.

There I found what can only be described as the most annoying structure in the law school: the obnoxiously loud handicapped ramp. While I fully support its use by anyone on wheels, its use by perfectly mobile students and faculty results in this: STOMP, STOMP, STOMP, STOMP, STOMP. There are stairs right next to it, and yet, it appears the majority of our fellow students choose to ignore these in favor of clomping up and down the ramp like Clydesdales.

Oh, there go two more clomping by, as I write this....

But really, they can't be blamed, they are just following the faculty's bad example. While I sat here, the biggest stomper of all--a certain popular Contracts professor--literally RAN up, and then a few minutes later RAN back down the ramp, resulting in the loudest clomping of all.

Oh, there goes another clomper, this time with a rolling backpack too.

It appears the world just doesn't want me to start on my torts paper. Not today at least.

Leinart in his last three starts: 0-3.

He sucks. :)

Yes, but in his defense, none of those 3 was against OU again. ;-)

Oh, and what is up with a "torts paper?"

What's up with the "torts paper" is that at UT the real faculty is smart enough not to trust most of the legal writing faculty to teach law students how to write.

To anonymous:
At UT, the freshman class of 425 is divided into 4 sections. Each section is divided into two societies, and each society is divided into two mentor groups. You have one class (for me, Torts) with your mentor group of ~25 people, and because they give us an extra unit for this class compared to our large section classes, we have to write a memo.

You think people talking football in the library is annoying... wait until undergraduate sorority girls invade the library during finals. Nothing more depressing than little girls all gussied up to find a rich future lawyer husband and reading "Human Sexuality" or "Art History" while you are grudging through Civ Pro outlines.

1) They giggle.

Try studying for civ. pro with little girls giggling. Doesn't work.

2) They came to the library dressed up.

Not that I'm expecting to find John among my fellow law students, but I'm usually wearing Whatever's-Most-Clean (TM) during finals time.

3) They don't know how to whisper.

"Psst Psst Psst like and I psst psst psst. So hot. psst."
