I've been assistant-coaching a local high school mock trial team this year, and they had their regional competition on Saturday. I went, expecting to only stick around for one round, but ended up staying for the duration in order to give critiques and moral support. The first two rounds went well, while the third was a scorched-earth evidentiary battle. Apparently it went well though; they took first, and 2 witnesses were awarded best witness, and one of our attorneys snagged best attorney. I'll be able to help them a little more before I take off for Mexico.

Also, Annie and I saw Taalem Acey at Legends last night. I had to drag her there since it was a poetry reading and all, but he was fantastic. It made me miss the minneapolis slam scene a bit.
