Another Legal Monkey in the Making

I am quite sure now that often, very often, in matters concerning religion and politics a man's reasoning powers are not above the monkey's.

- Mark Twain in Eruption

With that in mind, ladies and gentlemen of the blogosphere, Kitchen Monkey announces that he has made his decision. Starting in August 2005, after a month-long trip to France, he will be starting law school at American University's Washington College of Law, in the nation's capital, where one in every 12 people has a law degree--a city that could truly be said to be Poo-Flinging Central in matters concerning religion and politics.

I am excited by, fascinated with, and somewhat repelled by the three years of law school ahead of me. This also describes my feelings about DC, but in the end, I couldn't pass up the opportunity to study in a town so rich with history and diversity, which so many NGOs call home. Its going to be a crazy three years.

As you can imagine, and as I've said before, posts to Kitchen Monkey won't happen as frequently starting in August, but they will happen, so please keep reading. And I apologize in advance if, once I have started law school, the tone of my writing gets crankier or less colorful.

Hey, you're moving to my neck of the woods! I can see the headlines now: "Mr. Kitchen Monkey Goes to Washington"

By the way, I should add that you will love DC. The variety of food found here is incredible. You'll not go hungry or get bored. You might get tired of law school first.

I won't blame you if you don't post at all during law school. It is a lot of work.

I asked a friend in law school if she had read an article in the newspaper and she snapped "I don't read anything that isn't required." Okay! I get the picture!
