What are the odds?



I am disturbingly popular with the Circuit Court set...

...only this time, I don't have any travel plans.

Crap.

..business travel -- schedule a trip at work -- but, you know, the court probably just has your "number" and it's UP! Maybe you can catch up on your reading or knitting or tie-dying?

...or maybe I can see how many non-case-related things I can find to blog about while trapped in a courtroom.

Oy.

I sat in court recently to fight a speeding ticket. As luck would have it, my officer was the second to the last one called and I had the privilege of sitting there for four hours. (It turned out to be worth it, though, as the judge seriously reduced my offense.) About 45 minutes into what would ultimately be half my day, the baliff came over and told me to put my magazine away. There was no reading allowed in the court. I didn't want to risk breaking their dumb rule in such an easy place to be arrested, so I complied. Mind numbingly dull day. Good luck!

Oh go! It might be fun; a foray into the adventures of the seriously stupid people that Mr. Mister deals with all day.

Wow. I wonder if they, like, don't realize I live here? I don't think I've gotten a jury summons since college, and then it was fairly easy to explain that, as I lived many hundreds of miles away, I would not be able to make it.

If I say that I've never had jury duty in 13 years of elegibility, does that ensure that karma will come back to bite me in the butt with a summons on Monday?

If so, then I didn't say it.

...yeah, and I was going to rub it in by saying I've never been called for jury duty (though my Darlin' has) -- and I WANT to be called. I think it would be kind of cool to do it once, you know just for the Civicness of it all.
