    Contracts All Done
    3 days of contracts came to a close today. I liked our professor. I saw others complaining about the contract lecturer - but I'm not sure I had the same dude. My dude was relatively funny, and made the 10 hours approachable and sensible. And I liked his Texas accent.

    I'm not looking forward to 2 days of 4+ hours of torts ... especially now that the kidlets are out of school (and therefore after-school care) and I have to worry if they're doing alright.

    After class today, I wrote checks for over $900 so that next year, the kids again have after-school care. Even though E's one of the few entering 6th grade who will continue after-school care. Others are starting to just head home on their own. I'm not sure I'm ready for that yet. She probably is (or thinks she is). I'm just not. I need to see how she does once she's a 6th grader. It helps that 1) Beloved is home 2 out of 5 afternoons per week because it allows for a supervised transition; and 2) Beloved works right down the street in a (relatively) relaxed establishment ... so if problems arise, we aren't hoping I can run the 13 blocks to the T station and catch a train ASAP to handle it. He can be the first # on speed dial (yeah, she'll likely have a phone).

    Then I went to the school to pick up J and a friend, and we went for ice cream and a movie.
    there wasn't much about contracts in the movie.

    So yeah, now I'm even further behind.

    Oh well. I'll condense my notes after dinner. All 3 days' worth.

      David Epstein! Our "what is a chicken man". That's who I had for contracts in law school, and he actually dressed up in a chicken outfit to illustrate the "what is a chicken" case. He's definitely a character.

      Because of him, an entire generation of GULC students knew who Kinky Friedman was before he ran for gov of TX.

      I didn't know he taught there. I thought he was in Texas somewhere. I really really liked him.

      I also had a really fun Contracts professor, who is known for quirky mannerisms (like Epstein's "arm out, palm up questioning pose), and I just think that there's something about K professors --- they rock.

      I sort of dig contracts.

      He was on his "book tour" when he taught at GULC -- he had just published his new contracts book and did a stint as a visiting prof at various schools up and down the east coast for about two years. Made for a lively contracts class -- but we couldn't sell the books back at the end of the semester because no one else used it!

      Oh man, he gave a killer exam.

      I *heart* Contracts but must admit that the Contract lecture from the Feb. Barbri was goddamn awful. ZZZZZ city. Don't know if you had the same prof.

      Funny comment about nothing in the movies related to Contracts. For the three days before I took the bar, I did (basically) nothing but take care of the kidlets and watch Law and Order. That totally counts as studying.

      Yeah, I just finished condensing my notes. And we definitely DID NOT have the same guy. Definitely no Texans up in my contracts biz. And it sounds like I have reason to be mad jealous.

      Also, the check made me gasp a gasp of horror and pain. But it sounds like perhaps this is the last time to do that...?
