In other gymnastics news, my Michigan Wolverines women's gym. team made it to Nationals. Only twelve teams make nationals. However, yesterday, in the first round, they were eliminated. *sob* They very rarely fail to make the final six, so I'm sure they're all destroyed. It's a fair system, a random draw, but sometimes it has horrible results. This year is one of those cases. Twelve teams make the final and by random draw are placed in two semi-finals of six teams each. The top three teams in each semi-final go on to the finals. Invariably, four of the best teams are drawn to compete in one of the semi-finals, while only two of the best teams are drawn to compete in the other. As a result, one of the lesser teams makes the finals, and one of the best teams does not. This year, the team that was eliminated was Michigan. *sigh*
On the bright side, Mark is now on either three, or four -- I think four -- court-appointed lists now. He just found out about the fourth one yesterday. And he's had three cases go to court already, and gotten charges dismissed in two of the three and a plea-bargain for his client in the third. *so proud* I think this lawfirm might actually do alright after all. It's still nowhere near making money or even breaking even, but it's a healthy start. And he has his first adoption case, the area he wants to specialize in.
That's all the news that's fit to print, so I'm off to do some work. I have a meeting this morning at 9am, then Def Lep. tickets for the Detroit show go on sale at 10am (my source of information who told me the Detroit show sold out within minutes was dead wrong -- tickets are only going on sale today. Yay!), so I may be slow in getting online today. But I'll be around as soon as I can. I've a muse who needs to sort matters out. :D
Happy Friday to everybody!
