Mostly private

A lot of stuff on here is friends-only. Let me know if you'd like to be added and I'll see what I can do.

I am going to be busier than usual for the next three weeks. Thanks in advance for understanding if I am less responsive or harder to schedule with than I would ideally like to be.

Let's do coke!

Just finished a hash/MDMA/cocaine possession trial

The verdict: one expected conviction, one hard-fought nonunanimous conviction with great suppression issues for appeal, one acquittal, and a comment by the judge that in her 13 months on the bench this was the best-tried criminal case, on both sides, that she had seen.

And we're off!

In twelve hours I am hopping in my borrowed VW van and heading to the Oregon Country Fair!

I hope to see a bunch of you there.

Change in plans

Reposted from Twitter:

I'm not going to run the Portland Marathon this year, I decided. Still very much invested in the running, but too all-devouring a goal. Going to keep running, buy a new bike, have a more flexible schedule -- better for family, law practice, OCF & other volunteer commitments. Diversify my exercise régime, in short. Lowering running mileage goal for 2010 from 1000 miles to 650 miles. I have been on a training program and I have run up to 9 miles at a stretch with no problem, but have been 10% below my weekly mileage goals. Did lots of hard thinking and intuitive work on this one. Happy with my decision.

Full-on squee, y'all

Heading down to the Fair site tomorrow for my first QM work of 2010. I don't know if I've ever been this excited to head to pre-Fair before.

A good cause

Have some money to give? St. James Infirmary provides health care to sex workers in the Bay Area. They are doing vitally important work and deserve your support.

Kagan nomination

My thoughts, as blogged already by more diligent people: it'll be fine, but boring choice.

Good food and gardening weekend.

Refreshed and ready to lawyer in the morning.

A horrifying and infuriating tale of transphobia.
