I got called up for jury duty today. I've never been called up before. It was not as exciting as Grisham made it out to be. I spent three and a half hours listening to other people give unnecessarily complex answers to simple yes-or-no questions before leaving to go back to work. I didn't actually get the chance to sit on a jury, though - maybe the excitement comes after the trial officially starts? I had hoped to get a good start on my next book, at least, but I wasn't allowed to read in the courtroom, even during the five minute recess. Ah, well.

- Today is both Temporary Insanity Day and National Chocolate Mint Day. I think I have done a fair job celebrating both today, having broken into my emergency Andes mints stash after court. Some would argue I celebrate insanity on a much more regular basis.
