OH did I. This is the second year I helped out with the conference. The funny part is that all of this was waaayy over my head on account of I don't understand money or the economy.

Me too!  Which is why I am so hostile about it?  (I have always suspected about economics that there's no there there to really understand, and that there never has been.  All smoke and mirrors.)

I still love your prof's blog, Dash.  Did you go to any of the stuff last weekend?

... I just exalt sexual autonomy more than other aspects of physical autonomy. 

Why?

Why is there so little coverage of all the foundations and charitable programs that were harmed by Madoff?  They're a lot more sympathetic than the wealthy individuals.

I think because, other than Elie Wiesel, they are not vamping for the cameras and/or they do not have time to vamp for the cameras.  It's really frustrating.  I think Madoff did a horrible, disgusting thing, but listening to these fifty-year-old Boca Raton residents who lost their $8mil investment funds talk about how they can never feel restored is getting old.  You're telling me that if you got your money back you wouldn't be restored?  I don't understand.

Right?  It's exacerbating things, I think, to have so much coverage of all that entitlement.  I mean I think lots of my relatives are just kind of happy that a bunch of rich people got screwed over by one of their own, because that's all you see on the front pages.  Seriously: http://rayogram.com/news/

That's making me crazy, too. I doubt even a series of letters to the editor could even shift the focus to where it should be.

We need a website!  With pictures!  Like fivethirtyeight!

I don't know why my pannies are all in a bunch about this right now.  Maybe I need some more coffee or something.

I miss stan.  Hi stan!

Hi, P!

Also, my new school does a 2L moot court thingie, too. No credit, though.  Just lots and lots of work and, possibly, bragging rights.  I think the people who do it enjoy it.  You have to do a few rounds before they do the finals, so you do get to practice.

Also old Television Without Pity recaps can help pass the time.

Is it this: http://www.epicurious.com/recipes/food/views/White-Bean-Butternut-Squash-Kale-and-Olive-Stew-1195 ?  It sounds so good!

Yes!  And it is really quite good.  I usually make it with chicken broth nowadays because I am lazy.

Kale is perhaps my favorite vegetable.

Hm.  I would not go that far.  I like lots of starchy root things more than greens, I think.  I blame growing up in a time and place where fresh greens were just not present in grocery stores.

I'm a newly big fan of kale.

Welcome!  I have a kale/white bean/butternut squash/olive stew thing that I like quite a bit.

So Mad Men.  I watched the first three.  I don't know that I can handle all that misogyny, racism and intense neurotic-icity.  Even the smoking grosses me out.

Smoking is disgusting.  Except for Lucky Strikes.  They're toasted!

Well when you put it that way, I suddenly feel more in touch with my deep-seated death wish.
