oh noes! and ooo pretty!  
So - now you can get notified when you get de-friended. Nope, there's not going to be hurt feelings and wank over that. Not at all.

Although 'drama llama' is cute.

Tomorrow I expect to be bored out of my mind most of the day -- Jury Duty. With any luck I'll have someone interesting in my group at least. A friend of mine was in the same jury lounge (though not in the same court) as Kurt Russell. That would be cool. But hopefully I'll get called quickly so I'll get kicked quickly and can go home.

But I'm going to take my computer, just in case. With any luck I can work on some things.

Wow, is there nothing on t.v. or what? I guess it's time to actually WATCH all that stuff I have on my computer.

I did finally however sit down and watch the CSI with JR Bourne. OMG -- is this not incredibly awww...





she's supposed to be his (and Melinda Clarke's) grand-daughter! And there's a whole scene where he's watching her play, and I'm thinking -- oh, Sam and Martouf's kid! I think this could make a nice manip for some AU - or maybe some Ripple Effect-fic after Alter!Sam has the baby...

And another nice one from the show. mmm, scruffy...





*sigh*

And he's so nice and funny, too! Man, I have too many t.v. boyfriends!

I did jury duty last yr. here its 2 weeks minimum. Though some ppl after 8 days of not being called got sent home.

I did 2 cases. First one - the case from hell actually - got thrown out after three days by the judge as no one could agree on the age of the victim at the time!!!

And the second one ... Why can't the UK have a verdict of not proven??? IE when you are convinced he knew what he was doing but the evidence just isn't strong enough. Not the same as a guilty and carry a sentence but enough to go on his record and warn him not to be so stupid again!

Its a strange system here. They call 15 of you to the court. The court usher then shuffles those 15 cards and calls the first 12 to the jury box. Then assuming you don't know the defendant those 12 get sworn in and the remainig 3 go back down to the jury lounge to go back in the pot. My name got picked first both times!!

I've been technically on-call all week, but I only have to go in tomorrow. But that's actually good because once you're called in, then you either get placed on a jury that day or you're done (it's one day/one trial, we call it - it was a reform to get a wider jury pool).

Since no smart attorney is going to leave me on a jury (my family's in law enforcement), I get kicked as soon as they ask if there are people with conflicts. I've sat on civil trials before, but there aren't any at the court I'm being sent to tomorrow. So the probability of me actually serving is remote. it's just tedioius because I'll probably still have to sit around the jury lounge for several hours while the courts deal with other stuff.

Ooohhh, lovely piccies. :)

Yeah, jury duty is extremely boring. It's nice that they only have you in for one day. I was there for a week last time I served. And I only did one trial the whole time.

*stares at her pictures*

I can't help spreading the love, y'know?

And I would probably not have known what a sweetheart he is, except for the plaque (nor would I have quite as massive a crush), so thank you! :)
