Top Ten Things To Do During Wills & Trusts To Keep From Stabbing Yourself in the Eye with Your Pencil...

  1. Use Microsoft Paint to make your own rendering of the prof.
  2. Scream “I CAN’T TAKE IT ANYMORE!,” jump off the desk, roll down the stairs, and belly crawl out the door.
  3. Write your own will.
  4. Keep a bottle of Jager next to your laptop and pass it down the row every time anyone says “testator” or “decedent.”
  5. Masturbate.
  6. Use your remote control on your iBook to mess with the person who has a Mac in the row in front of you. Keep changing their modes and watch as they get more confused and frustrated as class goes on.
  7. Stick a popsicle in your ass.
  8. Throw M&Ms at the moron in class who feels the need to reiterate what the prof just said.
  9. Do work for one of your “real” jobs. (If this is not a desk job then feel free to practice your pole tricks. No one will even be awake enough to notice.)
  10. Create a top ten list with the fellow bloggers also suffering through the class with you.

Between Sandra Gay, Scalito and myself we are willing to do everything on this list throughout the duration of this class in order to keep ourselves from falling asleep. After class the other night we can cross #6, #8, #9 and #10 off of the list. [Well, two of seriously considered doing #8, but we didn't want to waste the M&Ms that we were eating.] Given that this class will meet 23 more times this semeter means that we may have to create another list...

I feel your pain...my Wills and Trusts class (cleverly disguised by the Registrar and the Prof. as a required Fiduciary Relations class) may have been worse. The professor only lectured, and after the first week, everyone had obtained a copy of an almost word-for-word set of notes for the class. Oh, and we found out the class would no longer be required for subsequent students.

Popsicle in the ass? Gee, I wonder who came up with that one...

Also, you spelled masturbate wrong. Looks like you are out of practice.

we got our trusts and estates grade bumped up by 1/2 a grade for writing wills for ourselves, providing they would be found valid.

we also got bumped up for sticking a popsicle up our asses, an option which i chose to forego.

How much for sticking a popsicle up someone else's ass?

Things I learned in Civ Pro today:

1) don't read this blog during civ pro.
2) snickering at an inopertune moment will get you noticed in that class
3) having read CT v Doher might have helped
