As late as Friday, I thought I was going to have to fly to New Hampshire this weekend to help my partner prepare to try a million-dollar insurance coverage case starting Wednesday.

I was not exactly looking forward to the experience. On the one hand, it promised to be a billable hours bonanza, giving me plenty of opportunities to catch up on my "required" hours quota and impress the Management Committee. On the other hand, it was pretty clear to us that the case was unwinnable (even though we'd only gotten assigned to it about a month ago) and Brad's low morale about the prospect was beginning to infect the rest of us.

But our client settled on Friday, so I've been close to home this weekend (since Eric, assuming I'd be gone all week, arranged to spend much of this week in NY on his consulting job). It's been a golden opportunity to catch up on little things, like...sleep! and ...gaming! and maybe even some housecleaning (so what if it's after dark now! I've always done most of my housecleaning at night, anyway). :-)

Anyway, the case was the major reason I haven't been posting much lately. Expect to hear (slightly) more from me in the future.
