Speeding Home for the Holidays

We’re on a road to nowhere
Come on inside
Takin’ that ride to nowhere
We’ll take that ride
Maybe you wonder where you are
I don’t care
Here is where time’s on our side
Take you there

Finding Out There’s No Jury Duty Produces Mixed Emotions

2008-12-22

So, back in early November 2008 I received a jury duty summons for the dates of December 23 and December 24. This put me in a big slump because it meant I could do little as to planning how I’d like to spend my holidays and such. Still, everyone assured me that there would be no way in Mordor that a trial would actual be set for the holiday week. I shrugged and said I had to wait until the 22nd to call in and see what was what.

As you can see, the call went in my favor. No jury duty…for ANYONE. The courthouse shut down for the remainder of December. I’m pretty sure they knew they’d do this for some time so why make everyone wait until the last minute possible to alert them. Gah. The system makes no sense to me.

Until next time, jury duty. Until next time.

And we could pretend it all the time
Can’t you see that it’s just raining
Ain’t no need to go outside

Test Drive Into Paterson, New Jersey Proves Scary

with 4 comments

2008-12-13

I was, to really no one’s surprise, afraid for my life. As soon as the light switched to green, I zoomed forward, spotted where the courthouse was, as well as its parking lot, and immediately got the frak out of there. If there’s one part of New Jersey I’ll be happy to never visit again, it’s Paterson (at least the seven streets I saw, that is).

Question of the day: Do you do test drives too or just wing it the day of wherever it is you have to go?

I’m sticking with you
‘Cos I’m made out of glue
Anything that you might do
I’m gonna do too

Evil Mail Fairy of Bad News = 1, Me = 0

Yes, jury duty time. And the crowd goes wild. I’ve been lucky enough to avoid being called twice before. Once I was away at college, and other time I’d just moved up to North Jersey. This time, however, they’ve really slapped me silly. The dates I’m to serve? December 23 and December 24. One of those is Christmas Eve, people. Can you taste the awesomeness yet?

Family members comfort me with the thought that they probably won’t set a trial over Christmas, but who knows. I’m quite the luck-sucker. So stay tuned…

Also, check out My Life in a Cube for some guest artwork from little ol’ me!

You’ve got the cool water
When the fever runs high
You’ve got the look of lovelight in your eyes
And I was in crazy motion
‘Til you calmed me down
It took a little time
But you calmed me down
