Still alive

I'll post the other backlogged day reports some other time, in case anyone cares. I realized they're getting really wordy, so I'll trim down from now on.

Went to the Cricket Match yesterday. NZ Black Caps v. South Africa. NZ won by 6 wickets, chasing to 260. We got there between innings, so I only had to watch the NZ batsmen. Very interesting, very English, very cold and quite long. I can see how people wouldn't feel any obligation to watch the first 40 overs. :-)

I also think I understand it.

Got a bank account today, really just lounging around in general waiting for classes to start. Perhaps a cell phone would be useful, need to look into that. Also need to do math on when an Oscar watching party would be. It may be on Sky, might be on air given the LotR involvement.

Anyone who wants phone calls, let me know.

You were designed to make sure that attorneys in
federal cases make reasonable inquiries into
fact or law before submitting pleadings,
motions, or other papers. You were a real
hardass in 1983, when you snuffed out all legal
creativity from federal proceedings and
embarassed well-meaning but overzealous
attorneys. You loosened up a bit in 1993, when
you began allowing plaintiffs to make
allegations in their complaints that are likely
to have evidenciary support after discovery,
and when you allowed a 21 day period for the
erring attorney to withdraw the errant motion.
Sure, you keep everything running on the up and
up, but it's clear that things would be a lot
more fun without you around.
