I do -- Wolf Hall. Terrific book, even better than the hype suggests it is.

The best book in the whole of Christendom!  Or something.

Audio version is quite good, btw.

Wine tip:  Seghesio Sonoma Zinfandel 2007.  One of Wine Spectator's top 100 wines of 2008.  93 points, $25.  Buy it if you can find it (and like big, raucous CA zins).

They only had the 2008.  I bought a bottle anyway.

The dude in charge continuously makes (what I thought were?) jokes about being heavily medicated but I am beginning to this might be the case. 

Nothing wrong with that!

Loans, grants and scholarships. I would only recommend part-time to be with your children. I would not recommend working - at least not the first year.

Agreed.  Schools will adjust financial aid packages to account for special circumstances like childcare needs.  Also, schools associated with a larger university may have high-quality subsidized childcare options.  Check into them early -- many have long waitlists.

Also, people who don't have kids, and those who have no expertise or educational background in child development, childhood education, or child psych, will continue to offer unsolicited advice in law school.  Law students tend to overestimate the stupidity of everybody else, too, so breeders get lots of emphatic, well-intentioned advice about parenting and priorities.  If you are not generally quick with the withering responses, I recommend practicing your best grateful nod/smile combo in the mirror before school starts.  They really do mean well, I think, and most times it is just not worth the time to do anything other than move on and have faith in karma.

I think that's pretty much how it goes.

EXCEPT DON'T GO TO LAW SCHOOL OR IT WILL BECOME A METH ADDICT.

this is only true if the person in question is a woman, apparently.

Phew!  Wait....

Congrats, Mu!

Good luck, Matthies!

P, you seem to be in a road-trippy way.  Any chance you'd consider taking a public thing southward for some DVR'd HBO vampires + bourbon in a few weeks?

Ferris Bueller is one of my all-time favorite movies, but Breakfast Club was really serious business when I was in middle school.  Sixteen Candles is also pretty good in its own way.  Pretty In Pink and Some Kind of Wonderful (really the boy and girl versions of the same movie) were merely good for young teenagers at the time and grew old very fast.  The Pretty In Pink soundtrack was fairly important, though, as these things go.

Jesus, yes.  Also Duckie. That's not a name, it's a major appliance!

My momma is Hughes's age.  Sad.
