we should all start worshiping curly and hope her awesomeness rubs off on us.

Well, originally, I rubbed off of bloomich. So perhaps that's what everyone should do :P.

it was nice to celebrate MsHSoL for one day.

now back to the NHSoL obsession...  >:(

 :D

So if LSN is a good predictor, the first YLS dings will be coming by thin envelope next week.  So that's my cheerful thought of the day.

I did, and that's amazing.  I bet he'll see it too, because either he'll google himself or a friend of his will google him and then let him know.

which is why you should:

1. never let anyone know what your name is on lsd

2. never post something that might give the impression that you're a tool, even if you're aiming to be cheeky. 

;)

Yeah, I agree with that.  Not that I always follow it.   :-\

you've NEVER come off as anything remotely toolish in my opinion.  again, if i were an adcomm, i'd pick you up on the spot based on what i know about you.  i mean come on, i specifically added number 2 for you!  :D

I think sometimes I post things that nobody takes the wrong way because I'm established as at least reasonably nice, but that if someone saw it out of context might not come off so well...  But seriously, if Yale dings me for that, I'd think less of Yale.  Or, actually, I'd assume that they dinged me for actual, legitimate reasons, and would just be a little sad that I'm not cool enough for them.

Ok, you can tell I'm obsessed by my double posting.

But anyway, I think it's funny that the number of accepted people at Yale on LSN is actually going down.  21 now from a high of 24.

Not that, y'know, I'm keeping track... (There really needs to be an faux-innocent whistling smiley.)

strange that there's not nearly the buzz around megan barnett (that's her name, right?) as there is around toby stock.

I think there are two reasons for that.  a) no blog, b) we know that faculty members do the ratings that make up the bulk of the decisions, and c) for cultural reasons it's a little weirder being obsessed with a woman than being obsessed with a man.  But I think it's more a) than either b) or c).

and i don't think your obsession is all that weird.  if anything it's weird that there aren't MORE obsessed people.

That's my feeling.  I feel like the lone psychotically-obsessed-with-Yale person here.  Which I know can't possibly be true.  On the other hand, I suppose it's possible that I'm the most psychotic, anyway.

I'm hoping it will imbue me with a Pookie-like karmic aura, and get me in.   ;D  'Cause I like living in my own personal fantasy-land...  ::)
