I made my way to jury duty this morning despite sweating out a 103 fever. I sat on the 5 Fulton wanting to cry because everything just hurt and I was freezing cold despite the fact I was sweating through a sweater and a hoodie, despite the fact it was nearly 70 degrees outside. I checked in at the courthouse, sat a table in the jury assembly room and put my head down like how I used to in grade school, on top of my folded arms. I closed my eyes and napped until they played some bogus video about how awesome it is to serve on a jury.

I was called and sent to another room. After filling out paperwork I was called to talk to the judge and the D.A.

And I lost it. I completely lost it. I cried and they sent me away to see if there was another trial I could sit on. There wasn't so I was sent on my way with a slip of paper saying I had served my jury duty for 2009.

I went home and had feverish dreams about ice cream.

Sometime around 6 I woke up soaked through. Not in ice cream.

Blinky decided she wanted to sleep on top of me. Ugh. Wet sleepy dress + Hairy Cat = Annoyance.

My body is exhausted. I have no one to blame but myself.
