i'm a bad person, and i'm skipping CJA today. that extra hour of sleep is the shiny.
it's especially necessary since, at 11 today, i'm getting in a car, going to kansas city, and my life will become all trial team, all the time, for five days. i'm looking forward to the trip...as frustrated as i've been, i love competition. i especially love trial competition. this is what i live for, and i'm ready to kick some serious posterior. yesterday is the first time that i've actually felt comfortable with my defense witness, and that makes me happy.
