Jury Duty
Ugh, jury duty. 8am. No wifi. No power outlets that I can see, so I've got whatever juice is in my battery and that's it. (SF is so much more with it - they have power outlets, and ethernet jacks so you can get online! How cool is that?) AND I managed to lock my keys in the car on the way over. What a dumbass. It just goes to show that I should not have to be anywhere this early! I'm too tired to be clever at this hour. Hopefully they will just let me go.

I do think the jury system is cool. And I sincerely hope I never see it from the other side. This is bad enough. They are running TVs in here. I wish there was at least a part of the waiting area where they were inaudible. But they seem to be everywhere in here, evenly distributed. Gah. NOW I am wishing I had an ipod! That's a new one on me! Heh.

Had a fantastic weekend camping - the last campout of the season. It's been an eventful year, and this spring promises to be busy. It looks like I'll be starting classes on either 2/13 or 3/27 if I go with the school that I currently have in mind. Need to figure out a time to go down to LA and check out the two I've been looking at - although I pretty much have my mind made up at this point.

I did makeup on a few people over the weekend, and made plans to work on some other folks (with before and after pix for my nascent portfolio.) Supercool. Need to check into how much a booth at Rakkasah costs, and whether it's still possible to get one. Also need to figure out dates for Rakkasah, as I REALLY do not want to miss it this time, with Mishaal coming to town! I've offered to let her and Shanti stay with me, hopefully she will. I miss the heck out of that girl!

I'm still feeling a bit close-mouthed around this thing, but life is good. It's taking me a while to get back into the groove of posting, as I haven't been in the habit for some time.

UGH!!! They just called me. GTG. Will keep you posted (and post this when I am back online!)

I'm feeling: bored bored
I'm hearing: none - TV! UGH!

Hey there

If you are wanting an Ipod, it must be a bad thing.

Im looking forward to you attending school.

Lucky plaintiff (or defendant)

Most folks who do jury duty get either retirees or college students. they are just about the only people who have time to be on juries. it's good that thinking people like yourself occasionally show up in a courtroom. :)

Good luck on the makeup thing - that sounds super exciting! And I'm glad you had a good time at C&S. I have got to make a better effort to hit them things...

Good luck on school. It is so liberating to learn new stuff and work towards a career you enjoy.
