Seven years. That's a lot of Top Dogs, beers at the Starry Plough, and gals with unshaved pits.

Query: Have any of you ever pulled your pants up after using the bathroom in such a way that the pocket bags are flipped upwards, rendering the contents of the pocket inaccessible without unbuttoning the pants.

Followup: Have you only noticed after exiting the bathroom and then discovered the inaccessible item is your office keycard, which you need to either enter your office or return to the bathroom?

FK man. Eating pizza and some of the toppings dropped onto my pants (pants are cream colored, so obviously the oil/tomato sauce shows)

In my humble opinion, Pink's is nothing special. It's worth going once because standing haggard, hungry and buzzed in that line at 1:30 in the morning with your friends during a long night is a quintessential LA experience, but I've always found the dogs themselves to be meh.

If only I'd been smart enough to do that. But no, four years of undergrad, and then couldn't get into Princeton Law so ended up just sticking around town while I learned the law-talking biz.

You mean "ranked" past tense, as in until I got there?

Best decision I ever backed into, actually. Conventional wisdom = it's better to go somewhere else for professional/grad school. Or at least that was the conventional wisdom of my drinking buddies. So I made a fancy law school back east (not exactly Princeton, but close enough) my first choice. They rejected me impressively fast. (I'm still convinced the jokes with which I opened and ended my application essay were pretty damn funny, even if I don't exactly remember what they were anymore.)
So I ended up sticking around. UC professional schools were a ridiculous bargain back then (that's become less true), so I graduated with far, far less debt than many other people. Plus, the fact that I already had my own apartment and didn't have to live in a dorm with a bunch of stressy law or mba students, had an established group of friends I played softball and drank beer with who weren't stressy law or mba students, and had regular haunts and habits and a general relationship with the community that was completely independent of the law school "community", all helped me maintain a sense of balance and perspective (which is to say, I had a life).

I'd say it was a brilliant choice if I'd actually thought about any of that prospectively, but I really just lucked into a good situation despite being a young, naive dumbass.

Haha no. Still top 10-15, no? One of my friends just graduated from there 2 years ago.

I think so. I don't really follow those ranking things because I think they're kind of silly. But yes, it's still a fine school and I'm sure the 20+ years since I was there are enough for any taint of association to have dissipated.

Personally, I thought laughing at how torqued up the other law students got was supremely helpful in maintaining my sanity.  That, and having one of my close friends get a job as a bartender at the local hole in the wall, which allowed me to drink a lot more beer than my student loans could have covered.

I wore a ensembel that didn't really work today too little contrast between dat elements. I don't have contrast in my noggin because I got so little hair to me of which I need to have contrast in my coat / tie / shirt combo. But I didn't (as I already wrote).

Laundry room at the apt complex was mostly full. Me and another man had our washing cycles done at the same time. There were two available dryers left.

He put a dryer sheet in both dryers to "claim" them I guess and said "I have a sheet in there, I was going to use that." When I threw my clothes in the dryer. I said "You have a what in there?" and he said "a sheet...but you can use it."

Who finishes a load of laundry then uses two dryers? My clothes would have just sat wet and I would have been late for an event. He was close to getting into it with me. When I left, he just stayed there so I thought for sure he would try to vandalize my clothes like some passive aggressive asshole, but he did'nt. I think he left it alone because I was taller and more masculine looking than him.
