It seems that some deluded* fool (or possibly two) has nominated me for the Jordans Most Innovative Family Lawyer and Best Readers' Commentary awards and that, through some software glitch, I have been included in the shortlist for both.
That's nice. It's been a rough ol' day and it's nice to get a little ego boost. I'm quite intrigued to know why I've been nominated, but for the time being it's a mystery...I have of course, as much chance of winning as I do of making silk by the time I'm 30 (what? I'm 29 ok?**), but it's nice to be thunk of.
I don't have time to go through the list of excellent deserving people as I'm about to re-immerse myself in prep for tomorrow, but you can read a bit about it here.
And the most exciting bit? You get to vote. Just like in X Factor. Except I don't sing. Which is a bonus.
However, the tweeting shortlistees amongst us have hatched a radical alternative plan to settle this contest by bake off, arm wrestle or possibly trial through ordeal. Bake off sounds tasty, but perhaps more suited to the ADR category. I favour a good ol' adversarial bun fight myself, perhaps with home baked goods as missiles. See, we are nothing if not innovative us legal twitter folk (litterati?).
* but seriously, thanks whoever you are 😉
** and a bit...
