From the US Supreme Court cafe

I like to imagine that the Justices sit at the "employees only" table.

I'll do some big DC-roundup posts when I have time - maybe this weekend or early next week.

Give them back to me, or I'll...

Happened to catch a few minutes of this on TV last night.

(Also: I'm leaving on vacation today, and may or may not be posting while away. If not, I'll be back by the middle of next week.)

Recovery efforts

My way of celebrating/recovering from 2.5 days of testing: a pedicure and some new yarn.

The exam seemed so crazy to me: more than 800 people took the test when I did. We were at a convention center, apparently one of the only places in the state that can accommodate that many test-takers using laptops - something about needing capacity for all of the electricity & power cords (there was a separate room for people handwriting, and I can't imagine how much their hands must hurt!). Testing began at 8am each day, and we had to be there early to register & set up. The first two days had three, 2 hour and 15 minute sessions (three questions per session), and the final day just had one 2 hour and 15 minute session. If I think about it too much, I realize that that is 15.75 hours of testing. On anything regarding the 21 subjects I've been studying since mid-June. Nuts!

Apples + Snickers + Cool-Whip

After doing some internet research, I've learned that people make pretty wild variations on this salad: they add vanilla pudding, sour cream, caramel, SIX snickers bars (I only used 1!) etc., etc. I'm good with just cool whip (lite), 2.5 apples, and a snickers bar (made about 4 april-sized snacks). Jason was too weirded out by it to try it.

Anyone else amused that they named a clear knock-off brand "ditto"?

Peety is sleepy

I decided to take advantage of being home so much this summer (studying, of course) to take pictures of the many ways Peet likes to sleep. He's a goober.
Post inspired by cousin Mabel.

Disappearing Civil Rights...

Mug. Hey, at least the takings clause doesn't fade away.

A diagram to make up for a disappointing photograph

We actually had an awesome view - we could see both main Seattle shows, and 3 or 4 from surrounding suburbs on the horizon. We were just too far away from all of them to get any impressive photos.

What happens when Jason & I discuss law topics

People get serious and start drawing diagrams.
