The property book? Not only that, but it's by an entirely different author. Ah well. B&N UWS won't take my other Property book back unless I want store credit :(

And... that's so awesome that Ken wants to sponsor a TLS party! Go Ken :mrgreen:

That's what YOU think. There's a reason why they're ninjas.

I don't think I'll make it to Magnolia. :( I wound up having a weird morning with my cat escaping. And, given that I live in Brooklyn, I'd be super late. Plus, now I have to carry a heavy book to return.

I will make it to the BBQ though :) Although I don't know how much I'll be able to eat there as a vegetarian. Definitely no to the bus tour.


Yay to another vegetarian! That's five confirmed Fordham vegetarians. We should make a supper club! I am a near vegan, but I eat eggs in baked goods sometimes. :D

And, just because my roommate and I were wondering, what's with the ninja thing?

Did you find your cat? I would have a heart attack if Cosette escaped, but she wouldn't survive an hour on the streets of Manhattan. Too pampered, lol.

BTW, Ken wants to sponsor tomorrow night's party, so we've been spreading the word to other TLSers. This means better drinks! I'm going to track down that rose prosecco from Riondo. 67 Wine keeps running out of it!


I was actually at my boyfriend's place in Yonkers this morning. At like 8 this morning I noticed the window was open, so I poked it to make sure the screen was in place (I'm blind without my glasses). It was, but after I poked it I heard mewing outside. My kitty, Nori, was fine, but a little cold and crying at first. She's an indoor kitty, but she loves to be naughty and give me heart attacks by running outside. Anyway, after since I was up anyway, I decided to come back to Brooklyn. It takes 40 mins to an hour to get to Fordham (and Magnolia!) from here.

The ninja edit thing means that you sneakily edit your post, either before or after actually posting it.

I would be down with a vegetarian supper club! I don't eat fish, but I eat eggs. Otherwise, totally veggie.

(Ninja?!) Edit: Yeah, the property book. It's heavy, I don't wanna have to carry it all the way back :(

So, according to HESC my loans have been disbursed to the school since yesterday. Hopefully that means Fordham will keep its Aug 21st deadline and actually put the money into my account, but I'm not exactly holding my breath.

You are so lucky! I think I've given up on my loans at this point. Fordham is def going to kick me out.

So how many of your professors banned or discouraged the use of laptops in class? And will you be able to take exams on laptops?

Luckily none of my professors banned laptops outright, but I do have a professor who discourages their use; so more than likely I will only use laptops in his class for examinations.

"Not so Ninja" EDIT: the balance on myFordham is negative again. :mrgreen:

The closest subway to Shake Shack is at Central Park West and 72nd and it's a B/C stop, incidentally.

I'm doing the same-sex marriage advocacy thing, which sounds like it'll be petitioning in the Bronx. I still sort of wish I was doing the legal observer thing, but moral commitment to a pre-existing pet issue, chance to meet people in OUTLaws, blah blah.

Also, yes on BBQ (assuming they have vegetarian options that are not mushroom options, 'shroom burger notwithstanding), no on bus tour.

Edit: Loan status - it turns out the Rose Hill campus MAILED me a letter (no phone call, no email) saying they need a copy of my Social Security card, presumably because of a name change issue that I told the Law School Financial Aid office about MONTHS AGO, and faxed them copies of every piece of documentation I own. About ready to kill somebody, aye.


I was too tired to come to the thing last night too :( I wanted to though.

I'll try to make it to Magnolia today, but I might be late. We shall see!

Ninja edit: If any of you want to say "hi" to me, I'm the girl with the super tattoo'd back. I'm also always down for drinks.

Good luck on the final to all today! I hear it's impossible to fail, though.


ohhhh i saw your tattoo (or you)
and i was thinking thats a good place to get a tattoo for a lawyer, i was so hesitant getting a tattoo and i got a small one on my back and two on my inner ankles, which im thinking of hiding with band aids in case i interview with conservative lawfirms.
i dont even know if theyd care but in case they do...

I met a non-TLS-er in Section 2 at happy hour last night. Apparently he hasn't been able to meet any other 2s either. Did y'all end up in the anti-social section?

Tears of joy! My GradPLUS loans were approved, thanks to my aunt and her flawless credit. <3

Off to buy alcohol; see you guys tonight! Everyone at Fordham is invited, and so are those CLS, NYU, Cardozo, and BLS kids I personally know to be awesome. At least one HLS 1L is still in town, and he'll be here too, along with my friends from the fashion world, and L---, an MSW student at our school.

Speaking as another section 2 member, the socializing has been a tad bit limited. I actually saw quite a few of us at the Gin Mill on Thursday but I don't think I saw any of them at the other bar nights. I ended up going out with some people last night, so I wasn't at happy hour; but generally I try to attend the social events.
