Legal Vignettes

Postby Athos » Sat Nov 06, 2004 12:20 am

Hey all,

Thought I would join the new fad and do some vignettes. Decided I would base mine on something I knew very well: Law School. The vignettes are based on my experience at the UC Davis Law School: King Hall

And something that King Hall would not be complete without, the daily Bake Sale:

Hmm.... to judge by all those shocked faces, Law School is terribly frightening indeed.

Great job on them all, especially the "Fox Hunts"

Oh the horror! I remember that happening to one of my roomates when he was working on his thesis. Great job on the vignettes. Brings back some fond memories.

I like Being on the Wrong End of the Socratic Method best. I LOVE that face!

Great job on all of them. I really like the "Bake Sale" and "Fox Hunt". All the scared or surprised or grim faces sum up the mood really well.

Great work on all of them. Hope to see more soon!

Very cool. My favorite thing in the whole is the awesome overhead projector design. I'm going to have to use that sometime. I like it when people do MOCs of things from their real life, like this or when people do their offices. E.g. both Lenny and Marc recently did their libraries. Did you ever see my Organic chemistry grad school drawn from my own life?

Cool. I like the vignettes. I can't say I understand half of them (the humour is too sofistecated) but I like em a lot. Good detail.

Thanks for the kind words all. Thought I would respond to all the comments, thus far, at once:

Nothing too sophisticated about them, but it is a little bit of the inside jokes. Particularly the ROUS and the bakesale, both of which we have too many.

I did see them. Thought they were excellent. They inspired me to do something similar and then when the vignettes craze came along, I thought it would be the perfect match.

Great job on all of them. I really like the "Bake Sale" and "Fox Hunt". All the scared or surprised or grim faces sum up the mood really well.


It really isn't that grim of a mood, law school isn't as bad as everyone things (at least not here in Davis) but I thought it added to the humor.

That was the first one that started me off. Did it and then decided I should do a few more to complete the set, as it were.

Oh the horror! I remember that happening to one of my roomates when he was working on his thesis.


So far this hasn't happened to me yet, (knock on wood) but it is a horror that is looming out there.

Not really all that bad. Just some stressful moments here and there...
