Nice, sexo

I am enjoying my Saturday. I got up a little late - but not crazy, waste the day late. I am sitting here, with a smoke in my hand and a steaming hot cup of coffee on my desk. Carrot has had a little morning walk and should be good for a couple of hours for his main walk.

I worked last Saturday and had the Wednesday prior off in lieu - so I didn't have a proper weekend break from work, and then went straight into a week of the most hated shift: 12-8. Mornings mainly spend arsing about, getting ready and walking the dogs, then off to work, get back to Mum's about 8:45 and off for another dog walk - by the time I am home and done with giving Carrot his supper, changing out of my work clothes and making a bite to eat, I have maybe an hour or two at most and it's time for bed.

Don't have to that again for another 5 weeks - yay

So I now have a proper weekend stretching ahead of me and next week's the 8-4 shift so I'll be having to get up mega early, but will be coming home in daylight. Hurrah.

This was me ... except I didn't have to lie and say I was working.

I keep going round and round with these people. I can't serve properly on a jury because I can't hear shit. In a quiet courtroom with everyone speaking into a PA system I might catch 90%, but I've been in courtrooms and that ain't the case.

The woman from the jury board calls me up and says, "Well, you can hear me!" Yes, if everyone in the courtroom spoke on my special phone linked to my hearing aid I'd hear them too. She wouldn't give up.

The last time they sent me a letter, instead of telling them I'm hard of hearing, I said I'd be glad to serve and look forward to keeping the defendants from getting fucked over like the County Court did to me.

I was excused.

Ha! Nice! I normally take the "Everyone is guilty or they wouldn't have been arrested in the first place/throw the book at them approach." They haven't invited me in yet. I've changed my stance lately. WTF, I think I'd be a far better/fairer jurist than some so I'm OK with doing it.

I've never been on a jury.

I've been in front of a few of them...I don't like juries.

It's a pretty nice day for a walk by the river. A little sunshine for a change (I remember it fondly), about 65 degrees, hardly any wind.

Maybe before the--checks tv schedule--woops, no walk today. Packers vs Falcons at 2pm. Go Pack!

Yeah, I'll watch it just because I've seen every one, and watch it with the same people every year.

At least the ones that are still alive.

Seriously unhappy about it. I'll be looking for alternate plans. I hope Brady breaks in half and the Falcons stomp the crap out of them. Don't remotely see that happening, but ...
<<<<< I'll be over there not caring.
