Liveblogging The Event
Time for the boringest live blog in history.
I bring to you, Live Blogging Jury Duty.
Wednesday, 6:13pm: According to the notice sent to me by the Superior Court of my home county, I am to log into their website today, enter my group number and learn my fate.
The last two times I was called for jury duty, I logged in and was told my services would not be needed.
Can I make it a three-peat?
Wednesday, 6:14pm: Ok, I’m logged in. Number entered. Ready to go. Ok. Well. It’s not good news. But it’s not bad news either.
I am on something called “telephone stand by”. So, upshot is that I don’t have to report at 8:30am. The downside is I still might have to dance with Lady Justice later in the day.
I have to check the website again tomorrow between 11:15am and 11:45am.
How is checking a website considered “telephone standby”?
So even though this thing is not over, it’s possible I can still dodge the bullet (pun absolutely, totally not kinda sorta intended).
Wednesday, 6:18pm: Mmm. Kale dip from Trader Joes. Have ya’ll tried this stuff? Deeelicious.
Should I drink some wine tonight or should I be clear headed for the morning in case I have be a jury of someone’s peers?
Wednesday, 9:36pm: *yawn*
Thursday, 5:23am: It’s almost 5:30am. My alarm clock is set for 7:30am. Why in the hell am I awake?
Oh. Right, this isn’t related to jury duty.
File this under “Live Blogging my Insomnia.”
Thursday, 10:46am: Ok, about a half hour until next check in. Weirdly, I kind of want to be called in so I can step out of the office today. A change of scenery would do me some good.
Yeah, that probably means I’ll get waived off. If you want it, you don’t get it. You don’t want it, you get it.
Fate is a fickle bitch.
Thursday, 11:17am: Ok, here I am, back on the Superior Court website.
I’m kind of nervous!
Here we goooo!
“Your appearance is not required. Please note that you are now excused and will be eligible to serve again in 12 months.”
Three-peat! Sort of a hollow victory, I suppose.
Onward to a regular ol’ work day.
Thursday, 11:29am: Hmm. I wonder what the special is today in the cafeteria.
Thus ends the most uneventful liveblog in the history of liveblogging.
Thanks for following along.
