a Brand New World

I failed my eye exam a couple of weeks ago. Which is always distressing. My eyes went from -3.25 to -3.75. Because I haven’t had a car, it has taken me a while to get new contacts. But I got my car back today (Yeah!) and I also got new contacts. I am a new person. You never realize what you can’t see until you can see. The leaves on the trees are so detailed.

We were discussing elective share – and professor was impressed by my quick mathematical skills – when in reality I possess no mathematical skills and she just never changes her hypos.

I got to be the common law and switch between being the incompetent spouse and the competent spouse – the incompetent spouse can’t elect to take the elective share because you have to be competent to be able to elect. I’m learning, I’m learning. Now, lets cross-reference RCRA and the Clean Water Act. Are lead bullets a point source? Appel says that lead is not necessary to blow things up, but it is cheap.
