Jury Duty

I've been called for Jury Duty.

I report at 8:00 this morning. I am to report to the "Jury Pool Room" with 399 other residents of this county.

I am really interested in seeing how this works. I am 47 years old and have never been called. Probably because this is the first place we have lived longer than 4 years. We have been here 11 years now.

I've been told to bring my book, I have it. They message line told me not to bring any sharp objects through security, like scissors or knives. It warned me that sometimes jury selection can last past 5pm so be prepared to make arrangements for dinner. They do have a cafeteria, it closes at 3pm.

I may not be around your blogs much today, so don't do anything real interesting until tomorrow. Okay?

I've been called twice and never got as far as the picking process. Books are required, but if they have TVs in the waiting room get ready for jerry Springer... blegh...
