My roommate and I purposely stayed home tonight, trying to catch up on our sleep and chores. I even painted one wall. Anyway, so I’m sitting down to watch the Simpsons with a couple of tangerines when it occurs to me for the first time that we don’t have a trash can in our living […]

Today I had something called a minitrial. This is like a real trial, only you have less time to do everything in. Which suits us fine, because we suck.Due to my incessant bad luck, I was alone against a team of two, which meant I had to do all the work. I compelled a friend […]

Today as I was walking home from school with a friend we passed a guy standing in his t-shirt on the sidewalk, vigorously doing the breast stroke in mid air. Very good form, but it wasn’t really raining that hard. I craned my head rudely to stare at him, while my so Canadian friend tried […]

Canada is a very beautiful place in the fall. cliched as it may be, the trees always make me smile. I’ve become a big softie in my old age – I had to physically restrain myself from putting in more sappy commentary.Well, not always. When it rains, the trees can kiss my ass.Here’s what I […]

In my continuing quest for an articling position, I called up some lawyers today to beg for a job (for more on the search, read issue 6 of the Obiter Dicta). I got this woman, M.B. and we had a chat about being a lawyer and making money etc. She said she wasn’t making enough […]

They’ve told me that one of the best ways to find a job is to befriend your professors. Feeling more desperate than usual today, I decided to do so. Since we had a guest speaker a bunch of people from our class had coffee with him in the cafeteria and I found myself sitting next […]

Wednesday is the day around our household when we get shit done. I don’t have class, Roomate S has no work. In addition my roommate often doesn’t go to her class on Wednesdays and my family court shift was moved so we had the whole day free to try and get this shambles together. To […]

I work on the school newspaper, the Obiter Dicta. That’s Latin for “comments by the way” i.e. not the deciding rule in a case. When we all started law school we embraced Latin like it was going out of style – wait, it has gone out of style. But you wouldn’t believe the jokes about […]

Today my roommate S (new, Sikh this time) and I went to the mall, ostensibly to buy dumbbells for me. My bits are beginning to jiggle…very disconcerting in a 22 year old, I thought. Anyway, eventually we were at Telus where S attempted to bargain for the purchase of a hands free head set. After […]
