I, on the other hand, have about 20-30 shows I MUST watch all seven or ten or whatever seasons of or be inescapably behind the times and clueless on contemporary culture, but they are just waiting as I have no time to watch them.
Plus, Buffy the Vampire Slayer turns 20 next week and it must be commemorated somehow.

The lettuce leaves were too big in my take-out salad and it was hard to eat in the car.

Does this qualify as a First World Problem? I mean, don't they have juries in the Second and Third Worlds too?

We make amateurs do it. Everyone knows that amateurs are way better at doing stuff than those so called professionals.

I asked The Googles and apparently jury duty isn't all that common outside the US. Unless I just did a bad Google search.

I would like to subscribe to this country so I could not be a professional juror. I have served on 2 juries in the last 10 years for cases that went forward.

Wow! I've been summoned a bunch of times, but always in California, never in Georgia. You must have got all my pulls. :biggrin: I've only been summoned one time that I couldn't get out of, and my group was dismissed before we made it past the first check-in desk. :qwoot:

But! Speaking of which! My FWP is that bey is a Jury Duty right now, so I have to take a half-day from work because someone needs to be here to protect the housekeeper from the fearsome purse dogs.

This just in: Glasses are damned expensive. I finally went to get my eyes examined, after years of not being in financial dire straits and not being able to. The examine, not surprisingly, wasn't too bad, coming in just under $200 dollars. This included a fancy new screening thing that takes high res fottergraphs of your retina. (To avoid the indexing of googles: diabetes is evident even in your eyebowls.) Most of that two bills was covered under the VSP - everything except the fancy new thingybob.

Glasses, on the other hand, holy mother of pearle. Frames are still about the same price they've always been. It's the lenses though, right. Now, the last time I boughten my own glasses, everything came in the $300 dollar range - probably closer to tree-fiddy. Now that I am Officially Getting Older, the age(s) at which one must start using multifocal lenses on their corrective lenses, that's where shit really got fucking expensive.

The whole bill for everything; examination, frames and lenses, tipped just over a grand in united states currency dollars. Thankfully for me the VSP gobbled up almost 75% of that.

All that money and I still have to wait two fucking weeks before I can wear them, trip over my feet countless times before I get used to them.

I fell asleep Saturday night at 10pm and woke up Sunday at noon. After eating brunchfast, I worked on something from 1:30 to 3:30, took a shower, then laid on the couch at 4:30 pm. I feel asleep and woke up at 9 pm, went to bed at 10pm and got up this morning at 7 am.

I don't feel sick, but that's a lot of sleep for a 2 day time frame. On top of it, everyone said I looked like crap. Yet I don't feel sick. Weird waste of a day.

Not hungover, not sick, just sleepy and totally unproductive. I don't mind when that happens at work, but come on it was a weekend.

I'm just a big ol' ray of sunshine today, but tbh that sounds like it could be heart and/or BP related. Might be worth a doctor visit.

The more I read through new posts and threads that have not been updated since my last visit but still contain unread posts, the longer I am putting off grading this last handful of god-awful assignments.

And the later it will be before I can get to bed. :shakeff:
