Jury Duty

For the last 2 days I've spent the majority of it sitting in an uncomfortable chair locked away in a room somewhere in the bowels of the Providence judiciary. I was not alone - no indeed there were about 60 other people sharing the same fate as myself. For 2 days we sat there - some talking with one another, others starting blindly across the room oblivious to the world around them. Luckily I thought ahead and brought a very long book. In the end I was not chosen for a trial. My obligations to the state are now complete for the a minimum of 3 years. But with my luck April 2012 I'll be sitting in that room yet again.

It's been a couple weeks since my last post. Since then I've been pretty much on the go. I was in England for a week enjoying doing as little as humanly possible and not thinking about work for a change. I returned to discover that I have Jury duty coming up this week. While I'm pretty sure I won't be picked I still have to sit in the court house for 2 days while they decide. Hopefully it won't be too boring - but I'm going to make sure that I have a book to read and a notebook to do some note taking at least, maybe do a bit of writing. It's been a while and as the seasons change my inspiration seems to return.

Meanwhile I've been slowly sucked into the Warhammer 40k Universe much to Sam's delight. I'm now the proud owner of the Space Marine half of the Assault on Black Reach model set. While I've yet to get around to putting the marines together and painting them(mainly due to a lack of glue and time) I'm looking forward to one of those lazy afternoons where I'll be able to do so. I'm also on my 3rd 40k Omnibus. After reading SpaceWolf, The Founding, and The Saint, I'm currently on Caiaphas Cain: Hero of the Imperium Omnibus. I'm really enjoying reading these as WH40k is a huge new world for me to explore.

Today I have to go get my car looked at after work. Hopefully it'll be easy repair work to the bumper. The good news is that the other guys insurance company accepted liability - so I don't have to pay for any of it - nor the rental car.

After I'm heading to the British Beer Company(2nd time this week) for BOGO pizza night. Looking forward to that Buffalo chicken pizza.

Ben loaned me his copy of Zogonia about 2 weeks ago and I am finally getting around to reading it.

I haven't updated this is forever. I think I should start again.
