Were these magic grits? Did you buy them from the same guy who sold Jack his beanstalk beans?

On the way to school today I saw that someone had written "Mr. Condecending" in the dirt on the back of some guy's car. And literally the first thing I thought was "I tend to be condescending to people who can't spell too."

In other news, what the hell am I going to do with this blog? I mean, I'm graduating in June, I've taken a job that will be only marginally law related, and frankly, at this point, I have nothing nice to say about law school OR my personal legal education OR what's left of my legal education, so why bother rehashing all my complaints ad infinitum in my blog? I mean, have we all gotten the picture that I think legal education, the way it's currently set up, is, at best, of marginal utility? Do I really need to keep beating that dead horse? Yeah, I don't think so either.

Should I make this a dating blog? Basically I could just fill it up with blank posts interspersed with long, navel-gazing diatribes about why men never call back and why they insist on breaking up with me two days before Valentine's Day. I would write about it, but give me a fucking break...who's surprised at this point that men can be insensitive and idiotic? Who's surprised that those are the type of men who love me? No one. Yeah, that's what I thought.

I could change the whole tenor of this blog - start writing more about my new job and whatnot, but I mean, I'm just starting so it will either be (a) totally boring, or (b) stuff I can't/won't write about. And I don't generally write about my friends and friendships too much on here except for funny stuff because I love and respect them too much to put their business up on the internet (which makes me wonder why I don't love myself enough to not put my stuff up on the internet...hmmmmm....).

I could start a new blog. With my real name, and a picture, and tell all the fun details of my life (should there ever be any). But, of course, myspace is more for the kids...not boring 31 year old pseudo-lawyers.

So, what do I do about this blog? Where do I go with it? I'd like to keep writing but I feel frustrated at the thought that I am kind of backed into a corner whole readership is lawyers and law students and eventually that will go away as I get further and further from writing about law school or lawyer-dom.

This is what I'm thinking about lately.
