jury duty

Hum. I've been summoned. First time for that, although I suppose it was bound to happen eventually. The tricky thing is going to be getting there on time, as I'm supposed to be there at 8:15am and I live at least an hour away from the courthouse. Maybe longer, depending on traffic. Eh. I answered the questionnaire honestly, so there'll be a couple things that might make me unsuitable. Depends on how particular they are, I suppose.

Have you sat on a jury?

Yes!

...has Batman ever done jury duty? I know he's been the defendant more than once...

In other news, the originalbigbang reverse bang has been delayed a week, which means I have to wait to post my story for it. Ugh. Partially related question: do you like seeing fragments of stories as I work on them, or would you prefer to know nothing until the story's finished?
I'll have to see if I can get a deferment or something if they still want me after the survey--our staffing situation at work is pretty tight, and I might wind up being the only person on duty.
I'm hoping I get disqualified--I have no qualms about being a juror, but our county seat is pretty skeevy and the courthouse is in a particularly bad section of town. And is an hour away, so I'd have to leave about the time I wake up most mornings. >_<

Ugh.
My parents get called up all the time (that's the trouble with being residents in a city full of immigrants and summer homes - you're easiest to track down), but they're almost always disqualified - maybe private christian school administrators are too judgmental or something?

As for your second question - I don't mind fragments. They get stuck in my head better, and it's easier to appreciate your absolutely delightful turns of phrase. I've been a sucker for prose that you can chew on since McKinley's Spindle's End, and your prose so totes satisfies that craving.
Maybe they'll take a look at all the seminary stuff listed under "employment" (for both my dad and me) and decide I'm too ... narrow-minded or something.

Also, you are so very sweet. *squishes*
I must be the only person WANTING to get called up, yet never been called :P
Well I don't mind getting called up, I just don't like the time & location for it.

Just wait. Your turn is bound to come, most likely when most inconvenient. :P
