Okay, soon I'm going to the Linworth Chili Supper. My little brother and fellow alumnus said, "Whaaaa? Scrooge has been cured?!" Yeah, yeah. Free food and getting away from the law school are reason enough, plus I really did like some of my teachers from high school and some of the people I went to school with.
I had a serious "bad trip" kind of study experience this afternoon. I think the fairest way to put it was that I fell in with students who are far more motivated, knowlegeable, and intense than I, which, as you might guess, is rather frustrating, intimidating and less than helpful. It brings to mind my secret curse, muttered under my breath so many times as a physics major at the University of Chicago..."Damn you, Benjamin Zwiebel!!!"
