Jury Duty

Tuesday, March 24, 2009
I'm still ridiculously excited, because my Juror number has been selected for today's jury pool.

So I'll be spending the day at the Douglas County jury assembly room, waiting to find out if I will be called upon to sit in judgment of my fellow man, doing my civic duty while my company chugs along without me.

I'm quite sure the waiting part will be boring as shit, and I plan on bringing all my electronic happy fun toys with me for my entertainment pleasure. But I hope I'll be selected - I'm very interested in participating in the process.

Yes, I am a dork, thanks for asking.

I'll try and check in periodically if they have 802.11 at the courthouse, but I doubt that's going to happen. Please don't burn the place down while I'm gone.

Lessee. Ammonium nitrate, bleach, charcoal briquettes, vinegar...

What? No saltpeter? o.O

Who cares about the saltpeter? The chocolate, John. We gotta find the chocolate.

I'm pretty sure they frown on that sort of thing in the Jury Room. But I suppose it's one way to get sent home.

The one I would like to sit on would be the Ward Churchill circus.

John the Scientist said...

See, Vince? The Mechanicky gal gets it.

I can always buy chocolate. Hauling saltpeter around gets you in trouble these days, I prefer to source locally.

And Janiece prefers milk chocolate. To paraphrase Terry Pratchett, in the stricter chocolate producing regions that only avoids being classified as "cheese" by dint of being the wrong color.

Wendy said...

You know, john, that full-o'-fat creamer powder is a GREAT little fire starter.... and you can make a little trail of it to your target. Just like in the cartoons! I'll bring a coupla containers along with the matches.

Carol Elaine said...

Michelle and Wendy, that's got dust and Boogie hair on it. It's best left where it was.

John, I agree. As I often say (probably too often), milk chocolate is for people who can't handle real chocolate.

Also, crunchy peanut butter is the far superior peanut butter.

mattw said...

Yes! Crunchy peanut butter is much better than smooth. Alas, I live in a smooth peanut butter household. :(

Random Michelle K said...

Crunchy peanut butter is wrong.

And maybe evil.

And of *course* it has boogie hair on it. Just like everything in my house has cat fur on it within microseconds of coming through the door.

mattw said...

I'm sorry, Michelle, but crunchy peanut butter is wonderful.

I take it you're not a fan of the peanut butter, jelly, potato chip sandwich.

What?

Janiece Murphy said...

I'm back. Y'all need to clean up your mess. Seriously - who raised you?

And Michelle, Boogie doesn't shed. Just one of his many fine qualities, and why we loves him so.

Random Michelle K said...

Matt, that's fine.

The problem is crunchy peanut butter has the wrong kind of crunch.

Woof!

Wendy said...

I'm with the smooth peanut butter and dark chocolate crowd.

Unless the crunchy pb is in pb cookies, then it's allowed.

Oh, man, Mechanicky gal brings back happy memories of college days tossing a cloud of non-dairy creamer into the air, lighting it, and getting a huge fireball.

Did you ever coat a fan with hairspray and light it to get a nice column of flame going into your RA's room?

What?

Janiece Murphy said...

John, the creativity can be astonishing. Not to mention the destruction.

Matt, I am capable of public interaction without threatening violence, you know.
