Mmmm... Motion in Lemony

Sorry about the lack of posts... well, pretty much all semester.

After finishing my Note draft in all its Sucky Glory, I had to start a take home project for Evidence. We had to either write a written Motion in Limine1 or prepare an oral argument for the same motion in limine. Despite my desire to avoid ever speaking in school (Ever)... I decided to do the oral argument, b/c our Professor Evidence said she preferred it, and because then I wouldn't have to worry about all the "technicalities" of grammar, sentence structure, and not using the phrases "A-ight,"2 "yo"3, or "Dig"4.

So, my oral argument was today... it went well, I think. I can't really tell you about it, because there are some people still doing the take-home assignment (we could pick it up any time during the semester, but we had to be done 10 days after picking it up), but I will tell you that my client was Tom DeLay. I was tempted to say "Screw it... let him fry!"

1Pronounced Lim-eh-Nay... or as I call it lemony.
2Example: The evidence should be excluded... a'ight?
3The prosecution's argument is weak, Yo!
4Here's the story on this evidence, you dig?

How do you make footnotes on your blog? I can't figure out how to do superscript. Thanks

The html tag for superscript is < sup >, and I make the little separating line using the html tag < hr width=25% align=left >

How do you get the superscript to apply to just the number? Right now everything after the footnote is in superscript. Thanks (you can probably tell I'm not exactly a computer whiz)

Sorry, I didn't know that you hadn't done html before. You have to have a closing html tag as well, in this case < /sup >. Happy footnoting!
