In the clearing stands a boxer
and a fighter by his trade
and he carries the reminders
of ever glove that laid him down
or cut him till he cried out in his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving"
but the fighter still remains
yes, he still remains

Happy New Years
We were eating our traditional holiday meal of steaks, crab and artichokes and listening to music when Drew interrupted our discourse with:
"Lets go dance!"
So, we did.

Okay, so tomorrow I am presenting to a class of Michigan State freshman. My presentation is entitled "So you want to go to lawschool..." I think it will primarily be a Q&A, but just in case it isn't...I thought I would solicit some input from you lawyers and law students out there. So, what do you think are the two most important points to cover?

This was on Eonline.com's (yes, E!) TABFAB column. Please note the last sentence.
Burning Rice: We all know Jennifer Aniston went on Oprah this week to say she's ready to date (yawn!). But unlike sanitized-for-celebrity-protection Oprah, the Enquirer has some real poop in its scoop. The mag's spies report that Jennifer threatened to bail out of her girlie weekend visit to Oprah's palatial estate near Santa Barbara once she learned that Condoleeza Rice was set to join them. Former John Kerry supporter Aniston reportedly put her foot down and got Condi dumped, er, rescheduled. Aniston's rep denied the whole thing, so maybe it is a stretch. After all, Condi has plenty on her plate as Secretary of State without weekend getaways with the rich and famous. Then again, Rice did attend a Broadway
show and shop for thousands of dollars of shoes while Hurricane Katrina was drowning New Orleans, so maybe she would have time to pencil Oprah in, too.
Hey Everybody! THIS Wednesday (the 27th) is Doug's 31st Birthday. He has ten gray hairs for each year of his life (10 may be an understatement, it is probably more like 100). Anyways! Send him a note on Wednesday! Or, dedicate your Live Journal entry to musings about Doug. The attention is better than any present you could give (you know it, don't you, Doug).
Anyway, that is my official "Hey Everybody, Doug's birthday is coming up!" message. Now, don't forget. Its Wednesday ... this wednesday... the 27th...of APRIL (2005). Got it?
I am not sure if I can live in a world where Anthony "thick legs" sits on the safe panel as Bo stands waiting to hear if he is going to go home! And Scott? Really? Safe? Wha? I ask again, has the world gone mad?
I do have to give Anthony minor kudos for singing "Every time you go away" --- a great song that is only made more great (to me) by the knowledge that it was written by Darrell Hall.* Really, it makes so much sense that I can't believe I didn't just know it before. And although I am counting the seconds until Scott is voted off, I did enjoy seeing Hall AND Oates** (not just Hall) rock out to Scott singing "She's Gone." Hall's hair was in its full glory.
* Okay, first footnote is really just to pay tribute to the artful use of footnotes by my Live Journal Friends. Nice work.
** There are a select few people who know that if Doug ever said "Hey, lets be in a Hall and Oates-esque pop duo" that I would abandon my refusal to sing in public and learn to play an instrument. I, obviously, would be (and, really, am) the Oates of the group.
