This is Jason and Agnieszka's corner of the internet. We'll keep people updated with our travels, culinary adventures, and general mischief that we tend to get ourselves into.

We get foliage too guys!!!

Southern Cali, home of the forest fire.



Interesting to follow the nomination process. Only after 3/4 of a semester of Torts and Contracts, I've already developed different opinions then I thought I would.

Personally I am leaning more towards the view point that judges should judge, not legislate. Public hysteria and public media seems to equate this view point with conservatism. I think the exact opposite. It is more of an implicit endorsement of the political process and our elected officials.

re: politics test below

Jason took the test too. His result was close to mine, but much closer to the "socialist" area. One could expect the opposite, since I come from a former socialist country ;)

Saw the Merchant of Venice last night. I always thought that the Jew gets it a little too rough in the end. Free community festival production, so you can't complain too much.

Site updated

Added a mini blog role to the right.

The email subscription service also seems to be working again.

Vast Right Wing Conspiracy

This blog is written by some USD professors. They sound conservative (to put it mildly).

For San Diego that shouldn't be much of a surprise. This is a very conservative military town and USD is a very small, wealthy, white, Catholic school on a hill. It's just a little unsettling to not have your prof as a liberal academic, which is arguably the default.

I'm currently taking a class from Wonnell, but he doesn't seem to contribute much. Too bad, it'd be interesting to read more on what makes him tick.

Spices & Life

We went out to dinner last night. This is the third time in over two months that we have eaten out. The food here is generally horrible. Obviously the Mexican is generally great, but how many burrito's can one man take?

Anyways, we went to a Thai place out in the boonies of suburbia with an ex-coworker buddy of Aga's. Was called "Spice". Nice sized portions, and some real flavor and heat. Two things usually lacking from most American Thai restuarants. I'd eat there again. Take-out only however, as the service was horrible. We got overcharged for some rice, never got several items, etc. etc. etc.

Other then that, things here are really not that exciting. LAW SCHOOL is hard work. All of the first years are intimidated and neurotic about the whole process. I can understand, but it starts to wear on you.

The actual work isn't particularly complicated, there is just a lot of it. Working at law firms for so long, I can honestly tell you that being a good lawyer isn't necessarily how smart you are. It's the ability to write and speak clearly. That pretty much sums up the whole ball game. This isn't rocket science.

Blegh, no one wants to read about this mularkey. The last thing this world needs is two more lawyers, yet alone a student talking about the trials and tribulations on becoming one.

I've been bodyboarding everyweekend. Usually in the mornings. It's excellent excercise. I wish I could get out there more often. I occaisionally go to the school gym, but not enough.

Aga is weathering the storm just as I am. She still does the occaisional booking.

We've been cooking less. This is another reason for a lack of updates on the blogosphere. We're starting to plan some visits over Winter break. New Years might have a whole mess of people over, so that'll be fun. Christmas in Chicago. Thanksgiving in Boston. I'm just looking forward to some sleep and an utter lack of any obligations. Speaking of which, I need to go read about "proximate cause". Can you believe that we haven't even crossed into Mexico yet? Ugh. World travelers my arse.
