What I did today

I woke up at 9:45 to let the dog out. I love how my dog does not enjoy waking up before 10. Normally she would have slept in longer except that we had a tornado warning last night and there was a ton of rain when we normally go out for the super late night pee-run. Layla won't pee in the rain.

Went back to bed and got up again around 11. Then I went to judge a mock trial competition for undergrads. It was actually pretty cool. I got a talkative bunch and they wanted to know stuff about me and had questions about law school and wanted a lot of constructive critiquing. They also knew all the evidence really well and had tons of objections and stuff that I had to rule on. It was a little bit sad because these kids who had no law school experience were objecting left and right and I had no idea what was going on. I told them afterwards that sometimes I knew what the correct ruling was, sometimes I went with the "wrong" answer on purpose to see what they'd do with it and sometimes I was picking stuff out of thin air. Then again, they were using a made up set of rules and we were instructed not to use the federal rules. Not that it would have mattered much as I probably would have come up with the same basic answers.

After that I watched the Parent Trap (the one with Lindsey Lohan) and cried, Step Mom, and cried and X-Men and almost cried but didn't (hey the part where Wolverine gives Rogue his dogtag is sweet).

Then I started reading Saturday because this site had a whole bunch of book lists and most, if not all, listed it as a must read. So I am taking critics advice. Even if Oprah can be wrong, all book people can't mess up- right?

I am going to bed early because I have to write a closing argument to present on Monday and I need to practice it (ok write it) before class. Plus do the rest of my homework. And go grocery shopping. And do laundry. And take a nap. Guess which one of those tasks will actually get done.
