So this idea was a brainchild of my brother and mine. We had recently watched the Sony bouncy ball ad, which inspired a way to one-up the present we gave my nephews and nieces last year (about 300 feet of blue bubble wrap).

So here you go. This is my first attempt to use Windows Movie Maker, and I had around 3 minutes to fill, and only about 1:20 worth of raw footage to work with. All in all, I thought it looked OK, for a hack job attempt at making a video.

Yeah, Christmas is a lot more fun when there are kids involved.

Does I look smarter?

'Cause I is. I just finished my first half of law school. I can't tell you how it feels to be able to say that. I went out on easily one of my worst notes by writing a pretty lousy exam answer. And unlike my last post, this time I mean that it was pretty crappy. I had no idea what the question was asking, so I just started barfing up everything I knew on the subject, and hoped that most of it stuck. Nothing quite like the feeling of knowing that you studied your brains out for the last four months, only to watch it all slip through your fingers in three hours. I hate finals.

Anyway, I've learned enough to know that I won't do myself any favors by worrying about it now. Can't do anything about it any more.

So, yeah. I'm done with the first half. I have a shload of papers to grade before I take off, but other than that, I have the next month off. Wow does that feel good! See lots of yous guys in a couple of days!

Final Numero Uno in the books

So I just finished my Evidence final. Final Numero Uno. I'm not convinced I did all that great. I would love to tell you all the reasons that I think I didn't do well, but it's complicated. But, I think I can sum it up. Here's a shot of me after my professor took one look at my exam.

I can handle the dunce cap. I mean, heavens know I wore it enough through grade school. But the sailor outfit, complete with knickerbockers and knee-high socks? Come on. Let a guy keep his dignity.

Actually, I don't think I did all that badly. Everyone thinks they did terribly. So if they're right, I just have to do less terribly than them, and I'll be fine. So here's hoping everyone else was stupider than I was when they wrote theirs.

Next up: Con Law! YEAH!!!

Actually, the only really good thing I can think to say at this moment is that one week from now, I will officially be 1/2 of the way done with law school.

(Update: OK, I decided to edit this post b/c I didn't like signing on to my own blog to that kind of a greeting. Just a bit unsightly).
