The Next Iowan Idol?

In the heat of the moment after having watched American Idol on tv (and having had two extremely chocolicious brownies) I totally think that we should have our very own Iowa Law Idol competition. Why not? One of the radio stations I listen to has Office Idol. I only wish that the whole Lawlapalooza was sooner. I bet some of the people wandering around Boyd would be fabulous singers. I think that Career Services advisor Jill Deyoung would have an awesome voice. I'm guessing jazz for her.

Btw, I must watch American Idol. Even if I don't get tomorrow's reading done, or my memo written, I will always watch American Idol.

So what song would you audition with? I just heard this Gothic chick audition with Phantom of the Opera (crazy!), and she has the best voice I've heard this season. I would probably audition with Beautiful Dreamer, In the Still of the Night, or the Sound of Music. The best auditions I've heard so far were songs from Bobby Brown, Boyz II Men, and Aretha Frankling (Chain of Fools).

And the quest for music goes on. So far, I've discovered Joss Stone. Not shabby at all. She's kind of r&b/jazzy. Difficult to pin her down really. Also, Tristan Prettyman. She has a really husky voice, and she remade Britney Spears' Toxic. I know, that sounds terrible, but trust me, it's not bad at all.

Yay for no civ pro tomorrow! Poor Mr. X for getting called on today. Well, not really. But better him than me today, I didn't even know we were supposed to have read Pennoyer. And if the professor is so concerned about being fair, then he should just shuffle the cards, and then draw from the top methodically to ensure that no one gets called on twice or thrice without having to be. Just a thought.

Someone should suggest to our professor to give us a 5 minute break in the middle so that we can go to the restroom if we need to. As it is, I feel bad that so many people are constantly coming and going that I won't go to the bathroom even though I really feel like I have to. Even if you don't like the teacher or think much of him, shouldn't you at least show the basic respect of sitting through lecture, and not going to get food everyday during class?

And have you noticed it is almost always the summer entrants who are the ones coming and going? No offense to the summer entrants, but do you guys have micro bladders or are you just overly hydrated? The other day two guys left at the same time like they needed to help each other pee or something, and then came back at the same time. I've also seen lots of people leave, grab coffee, and come back (if that isn't a blatant sign to our prof that class is getting boring). And the girl who was called on while her mouth was full of food, then continued to eat despite the risk of being called on again (much braver than me)! Then today I saw a summer entrant jokingly flip-off another summer entrant as he walked by to leave class and use the restroom. You guys are like the rebels us 1Ls can only aspire to be.

Get over it. She has a right to her opinion which happens to be that MF is sometimes obnoxious in class. She's only saying what every other person who has ever had class with him is thinking.

I do have to say that how people act in class are sometimes different than how they act in a social scene. Some of my friends were the object of my disgust when I first transferred because they were just SO GODDAMNED obnoxious in class and I want to beat them but then I ran into them at bars or at lunch and (believe it or not, for those who know me, I am nice to strangers when I first meet them even if they annoy me in class) and they were really cool. You gunners might be cool in person, but you can't get mad at us for wanting to beat you every once in a while for not shutting the hell up in class. :D I say that with love. And for all the gunner-haters, try to get to know them in a social scene first (or the totality of the circumstances--god I hate law phrases--heh) before judging them as a person. and MF, I don't think she was making a judgment about you as a person, just as an annoying gunner. :D oh lighten up! that last part was a joke. maybe it's different for me because I am so openly hated or loved and I'm out in 4 months that I don't care for anonymity.
