jury duty, job interview

Mood: tired
Music: boring

Jury duty today. Walked to Metra, went downtown, walked to the Daley Center, sat around for a while, was sent to the court room, sat some more, recess. More sitting around. Sometime around 3:30pm I made it on to a jury.

Yeah, basically I'm so dull that the judge asked me maybe half the number of questions he'd asked everyone else and the attorneys didn't even bother asking me anything. I'm doomed to serve on juries for the rest of my life, aren't I? The trial is supposed to last through Friday, so I have a few more days of sitting on my ass left.

Job interview last night: I think it went well? It sounded like it was a foregone conclusion that they'd hired me, so yeah. The interviewer sounded like he liked me, but we'll see.

Due to the adrenaline from my interview/anxiety from jury duty I got less than an hour of sleep last night. Very lame. I think I may skip running tonight (maybe doing it in the morning?) and go to bed early. That'd be nice.

Don't you get paid for jury duty or am I making that up? If you do, MONEY! :)

You get paid $17.20 a day for jury duty, or ~$2.50/hour. Not even minimum wage. :(
But, on the other hand... money! (Which is going straight toward paying for transportation/food. sigh)

I was just talking to my parents about wanting to be on a jury. I hope it happens, just because I'm really insane like that. Good luck on your fun jury times.

Get some sleep man!

The procedural part of jury duty can be interesting - and the attorneys arguing with one another (just like on TV!) - and the judge enjoys making a fool of everyone else (in a good way) - but overall... it's kinda boring. You sit there and listen to what essentially amounts to a bunch of lies for hours and hours... We were in court from 9:15-12 and then 1:45 -5:30. Just sitting there, trying to pay attention... much harder than it sounds.

Thank you!!!
