Mr Sock Goes to Washington

While Chialea has been running around trying to convince people to give her jobs (people, you really need to give her a job. She's the smartest lady I've ever met. You want her and you want to give her lots of money, mmkay?) I have been running around trying to pick a law school. Last week I took my husband and a sock off to Washington, DC to visit two schools - this week, we head to Chicago on Wednesday.

Left : Mr Sock rides the metro, while my husband tries valiantly to find a parking space.

Below: Mr Sock enjoys a class in constitutional law at law school #1. He was, however, a bit scandalized by all the talk about sodomy (this class session focused on the Lawrence decision).

On Thursday morning we visited the ZOO! before heading to law school #2. Mr Sock greatly enjoyed hanging out with the baby panda bear. Lots more zoo pictures will be posted later today to my Flickr account.In the evening, we took a nighttime tour of all the monuments, arranged by school #2. We couldn't really see the cherry blossoms, but man could we smell them! I got to see two monuments I'd never visited before (these photos are nothing to write home about).

Before leaving town on Friday, Mr Sock walked around enjoying the wonderful spring weather.

Above: Mr Sock really wanted to filibuster about something, but was instead convinced to lie outside in the sun.

Right : Mr Sock thinks he would be both a more competent, and a more independent, justice than a number of those men currently sitting.

Finally, just because it's a nice picture (Mr Sock behind the camera)
