I was hoping to do a super long day and get down the big sur stretch but dh nixed the idea. Probably good. So yes, now the idea is down to santa cruz and monterey. Low cost ideas are appreciated. We'd like to see redwoods since we never have. There's some state parks down that way?

It's the opposite direction, but Muir Woods is only a 30-45 drive north of Berkeley into Marin County (which has it's own charms).

It's due tomorrow, but I'm obviously slavishly working on it.  ;)

Actually, since I didn't go anywhere, I spent some quality time writing `the plain and unambiguous' language over and over and over and over....

Yeah, strangely enough, I was not super-compelled to work on my brief over the break. I'm sort of tempted to turn it in as is and just hope for the best...

Don't be silly! You obviously have the inside information on touring around NorCal.

That may be true, but I have to wallow in my non-worthiness at least once a day...  :P

Ahh, the days of WOA.  When are your oral arguments?

Two weeks from Wednesday. So a while yet. I think it will be kind of fun, although I haven't done any public speaking since....uh..... maybe never?

I hadn't done any public speaking either and I was a little nervous initially.  However, once the "judge" starts asking questions, you get into the flow of things.  With all of the questions, it goes by very quickly, so focus on your best arguments and have general answers prepared for potential questions about the weakest parts of your argument.  I only spent a few hours preparing and I felt ok.  You spend so much time on your brief that you know the arguments on both sides really well by the time oral arguments come around.
