General board for soon-to-be 1Ls / Re: The Most Lawyerly Beverage

As someone who has no appreciation for fine liquor, I think I would probably actually turn down the good stuff, just to avoid offending the sensibilities of the people who do appreciate it.  I wonder which is worse, refusing it in the first place or not drinking it/mixing it out?

Well, that may be, but that's all subjective, and goes for anything. To some people a car is a matter of transport, and they're plenty happy in a Toyota, to other's its one of their passions of life, such as hot rod freaks etc. Try telling those guys a car is just to get from A to B :)

Not trying to be argumentative, but hey it's a law school board right?

As one of the aforementioned hot rod freaks, I know when I need to be driving my lexus and when I can drive my corvette.  I choose the company wisely when I take the corvette out, because it's loud, it's rough, the seats are uncomfortable, the harnesses are a pain, etc - but those people who enjoy that sort of thing really get a kick out of it.  The people that don't, ride in the lexus. 

I know my taste in cars isn't normal and I don't hold others to that standard.  I'm sure you see what I'm getting at.  :)

Well, sadly people do care for them. I completely agree with what you're saying, but its easy for people to listen to the people who shout the loudest, even if the message they're shouting is worthless bs.

You can't control nor should you concern yourself with the actions and opinions of morons.  :)

That was obviously figuratively spoken, I did not slap anyone, nor did I send them an invoice. I did however in the future make sure not to bring them around for anything like that again. Yes, they're free to do whatever they want with it, but I do think you see my point though.

Personally I think it's a tad ridiculous to ever spend hundreds of dollars on a bottle of alcohol, so perhaps I'm biased.  :)  But yea, if you're going to do so, and have standards about how it's consumed, I'd choose the company you do so in very carefully.

Cheers!

You are in control of yourself.  If you're not a whiny a-hole now, you won't be a whiny a-hole after law school.  People put entirely too much credibility on bloggers - seriously, these are people emo enough to think people care about reading their random thoughts day after day. 

Law school and the career that comes after will be what you make of it, nothing more.  If you are a 'woe is me' self-pitying type who thinks you're getting screwed at every corner and cries in your cornflakes about it, then you'll be miserable.  Note that that really has nothing to do with law school, these whiners would probably be the same whether they were electricians, computer guys, lawyers, or accountants.

You gave them the drink, your interest in what they do with it ends when it is in their hand, IMO.  It seems amazingly snooty to think that if they aren't appreciating the drink the way you think they ought to, then they're not worthy of it, need to be female dog-slapped, etc.

Just my .02

Get married and tell your wife to get a job.  Gives health insurance, freedom from the LS dating scene, and no student loans!  win/win!
