Jury duty that is… And unfortunately since I live in Ventura County and not LA county I won’t be called in to serve on Loco Lohan’s inevitable next trial.
The last time I had jury duty it fell on the last day of Summer Vacation before my Sophomore Year. Talk about poor timing. At least today it is more like a day off of work.
This morning started bright and early with a trip up to the Ventura Courthouse. Of course I only packed the essentials and wore my finest footwear for the occasion.
I managed to get to the courthouse in enough time to score a coveted seat at a table near an outlet instead of the airplane terminal style chairs that force people to get a little too cozy with their neighbors. I even had time to fill my tank up with gas and grab my favorite coffee.
Panera Hazelnut Coffee w/ 1 Splenda and a splash of half & half
I am normally a Starbucks girl, especially when they have the Pumpkin Spice Latte back, but when it comes to just a plain ol’ cup of coffee, I will take Panera’s over anything else. I love when I get there and the sign says it was just brewed 5 minutes before – best. coffee. ever.
Now I’m just going to sit here for 2-3 more hours hoping I don’t get selected. I kid you not, it takes 4 hours of online menu scrutinizing for me to decide what to eat at a restaurant – how could I ever serve on a jury and have to make a decision regarding people’s lives?!! If you need me, I’ll be browsing 1800 new cookie recipes and home decorating ideas on Pinterest.
Also, the courthouse appears to still be using a wireless internet connection from 1999 so it’s very very slow – advance apologies for any weird formatting issues.
