Ben mentioned this earlier in the thread, but I don't think it got much is amazing for searching for new/used books.

Expedia is to airlines what is to online booksellers.

some of my female friends successfully convinced me to go get a pedicure with them, and I enjoyed it royally.

I firmly believe that more men need pedicures...not only would they enjoy it, but they would have better looking feet...I have seen some UGLY man feet in my day. *shivers*

As for books, if I can save $200, I'd like to buy them now...I'm seeing my civpro book on amazon for only $45!  Sheesh!!

It means we are geniuses! 

I also had a dream that I was a chicken one time...all my friends were different animals!  I woke up and just went, "WTF!?!"  My friends just roll their eyes when I say I had a wierd dream.

SO who all has bought their books?  I want too, but I'm scared of the off chance that my section will be changed (I LOVE YOU SECTION 4!  The ballad is coming along, don't fret).

That is a scary realistic dream!

I'll share a few of my dreams, cause I am also bored, but not at work (I just have cleaning to look forward to!...*groan*)

Sand Castle Dream:

So my student organization, a Christian group, is defending this lifesize sandcastle.  Exactly like a real castle with rooms, halls, turrets...everything except made of sand.  Anyways, there's an invasion going on and we are in the middle of a desert.  We have those anti-aircraft machine guns at our "battle stations" that can rotate and everything (think WWII guns on navy carriers).  The invaders are charging at us, and they are everywhere, as far as the eye can see.  The guy manning the gun can no longer man it casue the castle is too fragile and the sand is giving way, so I have to fire the gun instead of him b/c I am lighter and won't crush the castle.  So I grab hold, and then wake up.

Witch Dream:

I'm asleep in this old victorian type bed, with a tall mahoganey head board, all of a sudden a witch jumps out from under my bed and attacks me.  I grab a nerf gun and start shooting her with tennis balls, but she doesn't die.  I run to my door (I guess I htought that I'd be safe in the door frame...but witches and earthquakes aren't the same...) and jump up to hold on to the top of the door frame with my fingertips.  The witch is jumping up at me biting me on my heels and then I wake up (I guess the door was REALLY tall).

Ok...thats it for now... 8)

Good luck to your wife Chris.  I hope she finds something.

On a totally different note:  is anyone else dreaming about law school yet?  I haven't been at all, even when I was applying, which I thought was kinda strange.  But for the past two nights I've had law related dreams. 

Dream 1:

We were a few weeks in, at the most, I hadn't read and knew I was going to be called on the next day so I really needed to read.  I decide not to read and to take a bubble bath instead in an old porcelain bath tub with the claw feet.  The bathroom was HUGE!  Marble floors, high ceilings with lots of natural light.  After the bath, I go to a concert but throughout the entire dream I'm anxious.  Oh yeah, the class was for Cochran...who I don't even have!!

Dream 2: (last night)
I'm moving into my apartment, except I'm living with 12 other people/law students, 6 boys, 6 girls, in a 2 bdrm!!! We have ppl and beds everywhere.  I can't fit my dresser in the apartment so I decide to move out.  I roam the streets in lubbock in my car with all my stuff in the middle of the night tyring to find a place to live.  I remember thinking I could live in one of the christian student centers before I woke up...Again I woke up frustrated and worried.

I haven't really been worried about law school.  I'm actually pretty excited about moving and starting school and meeting least I think so!   ;)  What is my subconcious trying to tell me? 

And if you think any of these dreams are weird, you should hear some of my other dreams (full scale war to protect a life size sand castle...exploding volleyballs...dinosaurs)

Every class has one -- or five. They compete for teacher's attention, and mark time by the bleating of their voices. Their classmates are both fascinated and repelled. In law school, we played a game called "gunner bingo," in which the object was to arrange gunners on a bingo card, then cross them off as each raised his hand. That was the easy part -- the hard part was getting called on by the professor and using the word "bingo" when answering his question. Doing so not only won the admiration of your classmates, but also a substantial pot of money

This sounds fun... ;D

I didn't really celebrate the 4th on the 4th...technically speaking my 4th consisted of painting a fence before a storm hit and watching TV.

But the weekend before rocked!  We "celebrated" by going to the lake, wakeboarding as long as our bodies would allow, gorging on watermelon, and doing it all over again the next day!  I got some awesome pics of my brother and I wakeboarding.  I'll put them on facebook asap.

Welcome Urban.  I have still managed to maintain my facebook virginity but think that time may be nearing an end.  *sigh*

Just make sure you're ready.  Your first friend, your first wall post, your first group, and most importantly, your first poke!  Just use protection. 

 ;) :D
