So… I was trying to study Evidence and instead modified “the work song” from Cinderella into what is below. (it’s pretty late, don’t judge me too much)
For context, you should listen to: Cinderella The Work Song
Cinderella’s “The Work Song” (Barbri remix):
Study Barbri, Study Barbri
All I hear is Study Barbri, from the moment I get up
till shades of night are falling
There isn’t any letup, I hear them calling, calling
Go up and do the outline and go down and do the essays, you can do them
How lovely it would be
if I could live in my fantasy
But in the middle of my dreaming
Every time she’d find a minute
That’s the time that they begin it
Study Barbri, Study Barbri
[Stepsisters:] Study Barbri!
Study Barbri, Study Barbri
Night and day it’s Study Barbri
Make the outline, finish the multiple choice
Watch the lectures, do the essays
And the learning and the memorizing
They always keep her hopping
She goes around in circles
Till she’s very, very dizzy
Still they holler
Keep a-busy Study Barbri!
We can do it, we can do it
We can help her Study Barbri
We can make her learn so easy
There’s nothing to it, really
We’ll sing a song about it
Put some black law rules in it
When testing at the hall
She’ll be more prepared than all
with the lovely song we’ll sing to Study Barbri
Hurry, hurry, hurry, hurry
Gonna help her Study Barbri
Got no time to dilly-dally
We gotta get a-goin’
I’ll read from the convisor!
And I can do the MBE!
Leave the outlining to the women
You go get some sleepin’
And we’ll make a lovely song to Study Barbri
[Girl mice and Gus:]
We’ll make a lovely song to Study Barbri
For those of you who voted, I just wanted to let you know. Nick and Jessica won.
A big congrats to them.
Guys. Only today and tomorrow are left in the KIIS FM voting to help Nick and Jessica win their dream wedding. Even if you haven’t been able to take the time recently to do this, just take a minute today and help them out.
Thanks for your support.
As I explained earlier, friends of mine are competing in KIIS FM’s dream wedding competition. Last week they were announced as being one of the NINE finalists!! The winner of the contest will now be determined by voting. The happy couple would really appreciate your support and your votes!
Voting began, September 12th and continues until Monday, September 22nd.
All you do is visit the page (http://kiisfm.com/common/perfectwedding2008/vote.html), click on the radio button for Nick and Jess, and then click “Vote Now.” You’ll only be able to vote once, unless you either disable your “cookies” or delete your “cookies” after each vote. Disabling cookies is the preferred method because it’s the easiest on you. But do whatever you feel most comfortable with. If you need instructions on how to do this, let me know and I can provide them.
Please take a second and follow the link to cast your vote and help them out.
What a dizzying day. Class is back in session and it is always strange to go from a summer of no classes to a day with 4 classes. A little overwhelming at first, buying the books, figuring out where to be at what time since you dont know your schedule yet, finding and doing your reading… Then after a few minutes you realize, eh, its the same ol same ol.
Today was especially dizzying though. Just got back from a cruise and I don’t actually have my land legs back, so all day I felt like I was on a rocking ship – dizzy!
For those of you in SoCal, I’m sure you have heard that KIIS FM is letting couple compete to win their dream wedding. As soon as I heard about it, I wondered if any of the soon to be married couples I knew were going to make their couples page and compete to win. Not long after the contest started accepting entries I heard that a good friend of mine from law school, Nick, and his fiance have entered! Take a few minutes and help win by just visiting their couple’s page: http://vipnetwork.kiisfm.com/future_looks. Leaving comments (either on the page, pictures or blogs) also gives them extra points towards winning, so they are definitely welcome [but you must become a KIIS VIP member (see instructions at the bottom of this post for that)].
A quick background on Nick and his fiance Jess, how I know them, and why you should visit their page and help them win:
Nick is one of my friends from Law School, and aside from being Canadian, he’s a really great guy. Easy going, always nice, not like the usual douche bags you come across in law school…Sincerely a great guy.
Last February, he proposed to his girlfriend of almost 2 years. The way they met and their relationship developed is a great story. Back in the ’70s, both Nick and Jessica’s parents — no, not the same “Nick and Jessica” from TV — worked at Xerox. Their families became great friends, and kept in close contact throughout the ’80s and early ’90s. In 1996, however, Nick’s family moved to California (if you ask me, it was a good move, but you know, put a small bump in the development of a great relationship). Although, their dad’s remained in contact, 1996 was the last time either family had seen each other. Nearly 10 years later, Nick was working full time in southern California, and Jessica was finishing up her last year of University in Hawaii. While on her last Christmas break of undergrad, Jessica and her parents decided to take a two-week vacation in California (maybe we should call this “when the stars aligned”). Jessica’s dad called up a long lost friend — Nick’s dad — and arranged for the two families to meet up for dinner. Neither Jessica nor Nick knew that the other was going to be there, and both had only vague memories of each other. However, when Nick walked into the room to greet “the St. James family,” he saw Jess, and it was love at first sight. They chatted all night long and arranged to meet up the next day, which was Jess’s last day in California. The next night they had an amazing date but a very tearful goodbye when the night ended — Jess was going back to Hawaii … for good. However, Nick and Jess remained in contact throughout the following months, and later that Summer, Jessica decided to attended Pepperdine University to get her Masters in Education (which happens to be where Nick and I go to law school, I know, you’re shocked). Now, Nick is finishing up Law School and Jessica is starting her 2nd year of teaching High School Biology. They are, of course, still madly in love, and still in shock that they managed to find each other after all those years. I should probably add that they are absolutely adorable together… Really.
Anyway, after Nick proposed, Jess accepted, and they started planning their wedding, they heard about the KIIS FM wedding contest. They have an amazing back story and really deserve to have a beautiful wedding that they wouldn’t be able to give themselves on the budget of a law student and high school teacher. The way it works is each couple creates a “couple’s page” and detail why THEY are the “perfect couple.” Nick and Jess have made their page and would really appreciate your support. They have until the 29th to get as much page activity as possible to wow the judges. So GO TO their couple’s page: http://vipnetwork.kiisfm.com/future_looks. If you want to go the extra mile… LEAVE COMMENTS!!
After the 29th, the judges will announce between 10 and 20 finalists. Then the voting period begins. Lets hope they make it so I can let you guys know to vote daily!!
Thanks a lot everybody. Your support is much appreciate by both myself and Nick and Jess.
Finals are OVER! Sure I don’t really have a summer break, but at least finals are over.
Now I’m back to playing videogames, watching tv, sleeping, and blogging.
Speaking of games, for those of you who play word games, you should check out this site. The guy who runs the site is a talented programmer who just put up a script that solves word scramble puzzles.
Check it out…. great for cheating in scrabble too :-p
