Guess who's serving on jury duty?

It turned out I'm not actually nuts enough to get out of jury duty, even though I voted for Nader in 2000. *wry grin*

At any rate, I'll be out of the house from about 0700-1800 for the rest of the week since yours truly gets to be on the jury for a criminal case. Once the verdict is handed down, I'll post on it so you can either be disturbed or amused.

When answering the question about friends and relatives in law enforcement, I remembered to mention Zack (my favorite Marine MP *g*) but forgot to mention Sunnie's a dispatcher. It's a shame, 'cause the judge probably would have had a chuckle if I'd mentioned the May incident involving a naked man in a wizard's hat.

Incidentally, I also met a Guardsman stationed at Buckley that I think Himself would get a kick out of; he didn't get picked for the jury but I caught him afterward and gave him our URL written on the back of one of the Rosie Ring-Around business cards I had on me. I may have forgotten to tell him that I only face-paint for now, though. Heh.

*snicker* That story usually gets a chuckle out of people.

I was actually eager to do Jury Duty when my number came up the first time... unfortunately I didn't even have the chance to be picked, as they selected the jury from the first group, and I was in the third. Of course, working for the Sheriff's Office, I likely would have been disqualified anyway.

It was funny, my number came up AGAIN, exactly two years later, just as I was preparing to move out of state... and I haven't gotten called since then. Maybe not staying in the same place for more than 18 months at a time since then has had something to do with that. ;)

Jury duty.
I always wondered what jury duty was like. You'll have to let us know. :)

Of course, if you REALLY wanted to get out of it, you could have come up with a story like, "I saw this guy once, who tried to steal candy out of a store. So instead of calling the cops, I went into the trunk of my car and got a baseball bat..."

Er, wait... Maybe not. Nevermind. :)

hello.. you don't know me, but you posted in
[Error: Irreparable invalid markup ('<lj-user=rainingvodka>') in entry. Owner must fix manually. Raw contents below.]

hello.. you don't know me, but you posted in <lj-user=rainingvodka>'s journal regarding <u>touched by fire</u>.. what you did share about the book intrigued me so much that I went out and bought it today. I haven't even finished the foreword (I would have it halfway done by now, but I'm at a friend's house..) and its already <i>full</i> of notes in the margins.

Thank you so very much for sharing the book, its something that I've been looking for.. for years.
