I had a dream, Helm, and you were in it. And I'm a guy. And I'm engaged. To a girl. And I'm happy. I swear.

I was reading a poker message board, and you were posting on there, with the same name and avatar. And in my dream, I found it so funny - Oh wow! Helm plays poker? That's so funny.

That's all.


no one can resist the brooding tar


Oddly enough, I have made appearances in at least a few TLSers' dreams. I must make quite the indelible impression on here.

Still, I must suspect that I'm the first straight guy to whom you appeared in a dream about poker. Of course it involved another message board, so I guess it makes sense.....

i think if any of you guys ever showed up in my dreams without my ever having met you IRL, i'd have to quit TLS.

In my Helm dreams, we're playing a different kind of poker.

To be fair, my dream about Helm was also about the LSAT and completely platonic.

The consensus is if they ask for your grades they are considering you. Anecdotally, someone mentioned being accepted after having grades requested last fall.

Now that you've said that, it's bound to happen tonight. It will probably be me taking the LSAT wearing nothing but tube socks and playing Texas hold 'em during the break.

I don't know, you'd have to ask all the other people who've dreamed about me. I always imagined it to be some type of disembodied placeholder with James Dean's voice.

or just james dean...which i guess i would be ok with. i mean, if i'm just dreaming about james dean there's no reason to kick myself off TLS.
