You're a pimp thorntll, that's all you are.


Holler. I don't know why people like this movie. It's boring and the transitions are terrible. One scene a random girl takes dude's arm on the street, and the next it's morning and they're in bed talking about their dreams. And I don't really like the main character.


Well, I actually like it. lol. The love story is horrid. I fast forward to all the parts about law school. I must have watched it like 4 times during 1L. It sucks, but there is something to wonderful about it. hmm. I now want to watch it . . .

Googling the addresses, Hyde Park is out of the shooting zone, but within about 10 blocks of several of them.

I don't intend to stir up any HP hype or hysteria, just passing along the news (and reminding you not to take the green line to HP).


So are U-Chicago students potential sitting ducks...sacrificial lambs being led to slaughter?

I feel like every time I turn around there's something else I haven't done yet. Can they send us a checklist or something? Where's the stuff for the profile?

I signed up for it. Should be a laugh, and couldn't see any reason why not to sign up. I'm sure you can have as little or as much interaction with your "sibling" as you want.

If today was the first "deadline" for the pictures, last year they sent out another one or two reminder emails with later "deadlines" before they made anyone a gargoyle. So don't stress about it today.

What did you guys put as the most important quality of a big sibling or whatever? I didn't know what to say, so I was literally like, "Uhhh, that's a tough one. Humor?"

Shit. I thought they were asking if they matched us with someone based on the info we gave about age, UG school, hometown etc, which one of those things was most important. I was like, "Oh, I don't really care, any of them or none of them."

:oops:

I couldn't decide if they meant a random quality or hometown/UG/age stuff, so I just left it blank. I wouldn't worry about it.

also, for the life of me I cannot figure out how to do quotes properly. I hope that's not a skill they test in law school.

TMZ has learned ... LeBron James and his mother Gloria James are being sued for millions by a man who claims he tried to prove he's the NBA star's biological father -- but LeBron and his mom tampered with the evidence in a diabolical cover-up.



The lawsuit is explosive -- in it, 55-year-old Leicester Bryce Stovell claims he met Gloria in a D.C. area bar in 1984 ... and had unprotected sex with her on the night they met. He later found out she was 15-years-old at the time ... he was 29.

According to the docs -- filed recently in federal court -- Gloria has spent the rest of her life shielding LeBron from the truth.

But the man making the claim isn't some schmuck -- dude is a Princeton graduate ... who earned a law degree from the University of Chicago ... and then became a Senior Legal Advisor for the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.

In his suit, Stovell claims he has a very clear recollection of the night he had "consensual sexual relations" with Gloria -- in fact, he even remembers apologizing for his sub-par performance.

Leicester claims Gloria went back to her hometown in Ohio after they hooked up -- but returned several months later to inform him she was pregnant with a boy named LeBron ... but she never specifically identified the father.

Leicester -- a self-proclaimed high school star athlete -- says he remembers telling Gloria, "Well, if he's mine, make sure he plays basketball." He claims that was the last time he saw Gloria for more than 20 years.

According to the docs, Leicester claims he reconnected with Gloria over the phone in 2007 -- when he began to think he could be LeBron's father ... partly because they look almost identical. Leicester also notes that when he saw LeBron at an NBA game he was, "struck by our similarity in appearance ... James and I are nearly if not identical height and pigmentation and have very similar athletic body types."

Leicester claims during the 2007 phone call -- Gloria denied ever meeting him -- threatened to have him physically harmed -- and told him, "LeBron's money is for his children."

A few days after the phone call, Leicester claims LeBron -- through his lawyer -- agreed to take a DNA paternity test.

Leicester claims he was given results that showed he was not LeBron's dad ... but several months later, he began to suspect that the results were tampered with ... and Gloria and LeBron were behind the fraud.


I'm one-step closer to having an all-star caliber NBA baby.

When I was talking to KV a couple weeks ago she mentioned something about the loans automatically including the extra money for a computer, so maybe that is it?

I thought you had to directly apply to the SLA if you wanted the laptop money by filling out a budget appeal form, which will be granted automatically if you apply.

I'm glad someone shares in my dorky excitement. Still, Chicago, you've led me astray too many times, you saucy minx.

If you go to the main site, click Students in the top right corner, then click Incoming JD Students. The July letter is in the body of the page, although not on the menu to the left. It's not that different from the June letter though.
