Some Quick Hitters, or Blogging While the Paint Dries

*I knew my receding hairline might come in handy someday.

*Prosecution to introduce evidence that Scott Peterson ordered porn after Laci vanished. I was always under the impression that all men got porn when their wives disappeared...er, went out of town.

*Is it possible to rinse a paint roller sponge until the water runs clear, or will there always be just a little bit of tint no matter how long you rinse?

*When will people stop making a point of referring to successful black men as "eloquent?" Whether its pro athletes or politicians, that still pops up, although some might use the term "well-spoken" instead. No one calls John Edwards "eloquent" when talking about how great his speeches are.

*Slashdot just isn't as interesting as it used to be. Does it suck more now, or has a year of not working in the tech biz just de-geekified me to some extent?

*A real substantive law school/summer associate post will appear here before too long.

Thanks for the post on the restaurant. My husband got a huge kick out of it. :)

IIRC, you live in California, right? Do you live close enough for your husband to pick up a cheap lunch?

Oh, and have you had your garage sale yet? The David's Head looks like something that would come from a garage sale.

We're in Oregon, near Portland. It would be a bit of a drive for us, but we're due for a road trip soon! And I'm SO not parting with the David head. The Malinois is still barking at it from the living room, whenever he catches sight of it. :)

That David head is seriously creepy, but I'd love to have one. I'm sure one of my cats would try and scratch its eyes out.

If you want me to pick one up for you and ship it, no problem. I feel it's my sacred duty to spread the David-head gospel. The attorney who lives across the street is trying to convince his wife to let him have one in the front yard, and a classmate is getting one. They're deliciously awful!
