What's In My Head

  • I found three bug bites on my legs when I took a shower tonight. Three!! I didn't have them this morning, so I just can't imagine what happened... but boy do they itch. There are huge ants out at the Pahrump office but I can't imagine how one (or two?) got into my jeans and bit me.
  • Speaking of bugs - I'm taking time off tomorrow morning for the bug guy, and he didn't call to confirm today. I hope that's not a bad sign... I've been seeing things in the house.
  • Remember the street I walk along with the black widows? The street is usually pretty dark with little traffic, but tonight a car came toward me, and its headlights lit the block wall lining the street. Where I was has nothing.but.webs lining the wall. That was creepy.
  • My trip to Pahrump today was highly productive and a good getaway from the office all at the same time. I definitely stopped to smell the roses today and enjoyed the drive...
  • I received a federal jury questionnaire. Yeah, I know... my duty as a citizen and it's an honor. I get that. Do you have any idea how long I can actually sit still when I'm bored? Hell I can hardly sit still anytime let alone when bored.
  • Funny Madison quote of the day: "Mommy, why is that man next to us naked?". We were driving down Craig Road and this guy was next to us in a Jeep - he was not wearing a shirt and had on a rather too-small pair of shorts. Of course she was pointing at him, so he started waving at her. Meanwhile she's trying to explain to him through a closed window that he needed to put some clothes on.
  • I have a lot of work to do tomorrow. I'm feeling like I need a vacation. It'd be really nice to get away for a few days. Sleeping until Noon, and just doing whatever sounds good at the moment... Sigh. Yup, I need a vacation.
  • I'm going to the Smashing Pumpkins concert on Thursday night.... Yay!!! I'm so excited I can barely stand myself.

One thing about jury duty: Having served on a jury once, I also was worried about the "sitting still for a long time" factor.

But I think you sort of lock yourself into the fact that this is a serious preceding and someone else's life may be affected by your decision.

In other words: I think your mind gets itself right to deal with jury duty.

Maddy cracks me up.
Hey have fun at the Pumpkins! Write a review when you get back and are all pumped up from the show!

I've sat on a jury and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be but it was still hard to sit there and pay attention!

Molie said...

I'll bet you'll be staying even farther away from creepy bug wall now.

Yea for being productive and smelling the roses!

Maddy is a hoot. I imagine she would say the same thing to Britney Spears.

I can't sit still long, I fidget.

Speaking of bugs...Billy Corgan...he bugs me. :)

Otto: Thanks for the motivational speech. LOL Seriously, I know you're right. I'm just not looking forward to it, should I be called.

Barbara: I will definitely find some time to give a concert review!

Molie: Yup, soooo walking in the street still. If Madison would have seen the VMA's with me, yeah.. she would have said the same thing to Britney. LOL

Beckeye: Hey now!

Come to think of it, I'm more disturbed by this guy driving around without a shirt and a little pair of shorts on. Good to see her notice the difference in modesty there. Enjoy the concert! Can't wait to hear a review.

Otto said...

Did I say 'preceding'? What the hell? PROCEEDING!!! I am embarrassed.

I've never had to do jury duty (knock on wood). I was called to do so, but they must have struck a deal or something, because the day I was supposed to go, it was cancelled and never rescheduled. I'm with you, it'd drive me nuts to have to sit there, no matter how long.

You should have rolled the window down, so Maddy could explain etiquette and modesty to skimpy shorts man.

I hope you have a blast at the concert. Be sure to tell us all about it. I won't be seeing them, so I'll have to live vicariously through you for this one.
