Jeremy's Weblog

I recently graduated from Harvard Law School. This is my weblog. It tries to be funny. E-mail me if you like it. For an index of what's lurking in the archives, sorted by category, click here.

Today was the law school's organizations fair, where each of the 50 or so student organizations try to collect as many names as possible to add to an e-mail distribution list. In order to get people to sign up, they give out candy. The amount of organizations is staggering. The amount of candy is staggering. I sat at the table for the a cappella group. The Alliance for Independent Feminists was on our left; the Student Animal Legal Defense Fund (see: "Sexual Politics of Meat Slide Show" from Monday) was on our right. They each got more than double the number of signups we did.

"Do you sing, are you a feminist, or are you a vegan?"

"I'm all three."

"Oh boy."

I think the Alliance for Independent Feminists got as many men to sign up as they did women. They're going to be part of a grassroots movement to transform the group into the Alliance for Dependent Feminists. The Vegans got lots of sign ups because they were giving out homemade chocolate chip cookies. There's no meat in chocolate chip cookies.
