Tuesday Morning Reads

Just to disclose a little geekiness - the whole Tuesday morning reads thing developed because this is the time that World of Warcraft does server maintenance ... I haven't had classes on Tuesday mornings all semester long, so I've taken to surfing the net before I get down and serious with reading for school, since I can't get any WOW action.

I know. I'm a geek.

Anyhoo ... I've been wanting to check out Second Life ever since I saw Dwight on The Office have his character:

... interesting article over on Canadian Lawyer Magazine - MUST make sure to look into this stuff.

They also have a great piece for anyone talking about lawyers advertising for our Pro Res class!

Jason and I saw this the other day when we were driving by - I'm SOOOO EXCITED. I've lived by an OJ's for the last 4 or 5 years that I was in Calgary, it's a staple of a place ... they have great food and great beer: Star Phoenix - Calgary-based Original Joe's opening on Eighth Street

Wow. That's all I have to say. Wow. How badly do we need dictionary updates on our press release software ... hmmmmm?

Has anyone been following THIS story? I've only heard blips on the radar here and there when it's reported in the news. Looks unbelievable though - must look into this a little more.

A GREAT piece over at the U of A Faculty of Law blog about the effect of motherhood/fatherhood on lawyer productivity for my Gender and the Law class ... would love to look at this for a paper topic, but alas, I think I've already committed myself to another. Tempting to have a paper-topic affair, though, I tell you.

The Precedent reports on an interesting movement by American law students trying to take a stand against "negative" aspects of law firm culture. Must see if there's anything like this that has been started by the Canadian law students.

"Saskatchewan is the new Alberta" ... Saskatoon Real Estate Resource Centre Blog takes a look at RBC's quarterly Housing Affordability Report.

I too am in law school and I, too, play WoW... a trend? Though of course none of this happens in Canada.

I'm a Warlock and sadly much better at that than anything involving law.

Ahahahahaha! I'm a BE Pally, and I definitely have more enthusiasm for WOW than for school, but my WOW skills are, at best, marginal.
