The addiction of blogging...

Sigh, sometimes I think my life is so pathetic because I'd rather go blog than study or do anything else. Alright, that's not true, I'm totally up for drinking and hanging out with buddies (what else is there to do around here). But really, this whole blogging thing has completely exploded. There's Edward, LostInIowa, PlayItAgainSam, and countless others. This whole thing is just self-perpetuating. First there was LostInIowa, then that spawned a dozen more blogs (including myself) of people who thought, hey, I think that's a good idea!

Let's not forget who really started it all the way back in the dinosaur age: Scott Turow with his book One L. If you haven't read it yet, you should, because the book is really entertaining. Just don't get stressed reading it, and remember we don't go to Harvard. Too bad the author himself is such a pompous ass.

Anyway, it's funny how all the blogs out there are a source of entertainment for the law school, both for bloggers and their readers. I know that people are always looking for something to read other than their casebook, which is how they turn to all blogs on LiveJournal,, etc. Then comes the time when people make comments, and then have to keep checking to see if they got any replies. Of course, on the other end is us bloggers, because once we make an entry we're wondering if we got any comments. The worst is when you get a comment from one of our own professors, because you're totally not expecting that. You think that you have a blog for fun, and it's completely weird when you see that your professor has invaded this precious sanctuary too. It's like worlds colliding. It's bad enough that I have nightmares of Kurtz running after me screaming "State the Title!!!"

I'm just happy that there are some people out there who've said that they enjoy reading my blog. As always, I enjoy reading all the others out there too. Let me know if you want me to link to your blog.

I enjoy reading your blog Iowa Law Girl. I remember those days when Professor State the Title screams out "state the title" to us. I am very glad it's over with, and before you know it, you will be getting into the realm of nuisance next year, which is not bad at all.

Thanks H!
I am seriously hoping that property won't be this horrible next time around. I heard that future remainders will be about 40% of our final. Does this sound right from what you remember?
