Richard Conviser is the most blogged about person in America during June and July. I am not going to blog about Conviser. But, I just found this picture of him on the barbri website during my normal everyday web cruising and noticed that the filename for the pic is "conviserfrontal2.jpg."

Does anybody else find this worrisome?

I imagine my worries are too obvious to require stating outright, but:
  1. What types of other pictures of Conviser is barbri cataloging that they need to distinguish this one as "frontal"?
  2. How do I get a hold of "conviserfrontal1.jpg"?

I'm pretty proud of my blog so far. I have to say it really captures everything that a blog should - inconsistency, no message, lack of creativity. It's been over 6 weeks since I posted and I haven't had one new thought come into my head. Some of you are thinking, "No no that's impossible," and it may be, but what's more relevant here is that when nothing comes into your head, to go ahead and post anyway. This is what bloggers do. How many times do you see the "I didn't do anything today" post. Well, neither did I, but I will do you one better - I didn't do anything for the past 6 weeks and I didn't even post about doing nothing. Now that's how we do it.

I have been studying for the bar for a while. It is very fun and rewarding. It is fulfilling all of my wildest expectations. I met my wife, had a baby, wrote a hit song, finished a novel, but most importantly learned about myself. I can't wait to look back at this time in my life and just say, "hey, that time leading up to me failing the bar was a great time." That's a memory I want to make.

Part of the reason I didn't post for so long (other than the reasons involving my limited attention span, disdain for blogging, having to do things in "real life" a.k.a. check my emal), is that I had someone object to some of the content of my first posting. Actually he she it took it very personally. Okay, it wasn't actually my posting, it was a comment. I'm not sure if it was a comment or even a comment to a comment. The whole idea left me feeling dirty. So I left for a while.

One of my favorite things to see on a blog is when people talk about how they've been lazy and haven't posted and then talk about how they are turning over a new leaf or something like that. Let me make something clear here. I am not turning over a new leaf, I am not committing to this project any more than I commit to doing laundry on a Sunday only to do it the following Sunday. This blog will remain inconsistent, uncreative, and quite banal. I recommend you don't read it or link to it.

One thing I really didn't anticipate when coming to law school was how much lawyers and the law generally defer to doctors. Whenever there is a mention of doctors in our cases or whenever legislatures cite medical testimony, we immediately defer. This is because lawyers are inherently less intelligent than doctors and med school is much harder to get into than law school. I like that this truth is formalized in the law. In unabashed shame, we dressed up like doctors to take this picture for our graduation evite. Prisca rented out the OR.
I invented blogging. I'm not sure how many people out there can really say that, but I can. I also invented pantyhose and bifocals.

I just watched Stephen Colbert at the White House Correspondents' Association Dinner at this link. I actually found finding that link a tad difficult because some sites have taken down the video because of "copyright" issues. Is it still cool to put things in "quotes"? Or is that passe? How do you type accents in blogger? I invented this thing and can't even figure out how to use it.

Let me say a few things about this blog. I have no desire to tell you anything about my life or the world. I have nothing clever or cute to add to the millions of blathing dribblers on the internet. I don't even want to reread this in the future to get a sense of what I was thinking about when I wrote this. Nor do I seek attention or notoriety. I happen to like the feeling of the little plastic buttons under my fingers and that is the only reason why I am doing this. I also hope to link to other blogs that are infrequently updated and generally boring. I will do that as soon as I figure out how this works.
Hello world. How many blogs start with that?
