After only leaving the house once on my three day weekend, I woke up this morning refreshed. (although I had the song Golddigger running on loop in my brain)
Yesterday I had to report for Jury Duty. Again. and I did report. again. Me and about 300 other people crammed into a room full of pews. I would like to point out…jury of MY peers? My ASS. It truly is the most amazing cross section of people next to the state fair. There was no more seating by the time I got checked in, and there were several of us leaning up against the wall. At this point an older couple walked in, you could tell they were agitated and the man was mumbling and complaining louder and louder and finally we heard what he was saying…
“grumble grumble grumble…look at this (very disgusted tone)”
“grumble grumble grumble…proof that this system (disdainful tone) doesn’t WORK…(because HIS system does)”
“grumble grumble grumble…look at these people, all of them–
at this point the woman next to me leans over and says (with increasing disbelief) “sir. we are JURRORS. This is Jury Duty! We are NOT CRIMINALS!”
the old jackal had the courtesy to look ashamed as he grabbed his wife and scuttled off to find the real criminals.
I laughed and laughed and laughed. Not a smart move on my part because the woman then started a conversation about how GREAT a movie Twilight: New Moon was and Team Jacob vs. Team Edward and my eyes began to glass over.
But LUCK was on my side yesterday. I got dismissed. DISMISSED dismissed. Duty had been done, served, voila. No mas. No calling in to check and see if I have to report again. DONE. I’m hoping, that since this is my second time in six months that my sentence has been served.
I got to shake it off last night with dinner and a Thunder game with Pseudo Sis’s 1 and 2 and JackRyder. We had pre-game nachos and then watched our home team aaaaaaaaaaalmost beat the Spurs. Thundergames are FUN…it was a good night.
Wonderboy is here…I think. The spring blizzard kept him from arriving on the scheduled day, but hopefully he’s here and we’ll get to do some fun stuff this week. So here’s hoping the week rides along, full of clients and $ to be made. The weather is allegedly going to be spring-like, so that’s a plus. I’m off to get ready to work! Happy Tuesday ya’ll!!!
