    Title is good, thanks, Joe.

    RAAAAAAAAAAAVE! Only 33 hours to go until my fiancée comes to town. YEEEEEEEEEEEEHAAAAAAAAA!

    When I expressed worry about how she might be shocked at my new hairless look , my ex-girlfriend (with whom I broke up with in 2003 and who is a dear comrade and friend) said "You can see your eyes better. It's gorgeous."

    That made me feel a lot better!

    Right before my health took a nosedive, I was scheduled for jury duty. Thanks to my poor health, I had to delay jury duty by about a year and a half. When I finally had "jury duty" about a month ago, all I did was check online for them tell me "you are not needed, thanks for serving and doing your duty, loyal citizen."

    Works for me.

    Yeah, that's exactly what I spent the last week doing. It's kind of silly how they run you around. "Check at 11, ok now check at 5, ok now check tomorrow at 11, ok now check again at 5". But I got a high number so they didn't call me. Funny how you go for months and months with nothing going on and then the instant you have obligations coming up they suddenly need you for jury duty.

    It's weird. One day I'm stressing about having to contact them to request postponing my jury duty, and a year later I get a stupid, simple message on their website. I honestly kept checking the day after anyways (to see the same message) because I just couldn't believe that that was it. It was really anticlimactic.


    Good jerb, you got a jerb!

    No lawyer in their right mind wants ME on a jury:
    -- three false arrests
    -- three comrades sent to jail on.false pretenses
    -- constant police shadowing
    Biased, biased and more biased.

    Oh, Civil Court, you say: intense hatred of corporate greed, so, no "wrongful death" cases.

    See, you shouldn't have gotten down when you lost your previous job.

    Speaking of jobs, I got that on campus job that I was talking about a couple weeks ago! Now I have ensured employment (barring getting fired for doing stupid stuff that I don't plan on doing) for the next two years!

    Pam stole my supply, so I've been spooning a Barret .50 cal out in the desert near the border with Mexico.

    I was using Roman numerals, too!
    :eek2: That's it, next time I'll use either Maya or Cyrillic numerals, depending on whether I like Gucumatz or madviking more at that time.

    Future Shop is closing. That's what you get for making me waste an afternoon for a game trade-in promotion. Sweet, sweet justice. :smug:

    Defunct Canadian electronics retailer.

    Anyway, looking at the sky through a telescope is a great way to spend Earth Hour.
