I Can't Tell You Why

No post yesterday. Jury duty. I've been empaneled again.
This time they are projecting it to be a four-day-long case. But due to the holidays and other court business, it will be spread out over the next two weeks: Monday and Wednesday next week (Tuesday the court is closed for Veteran's Day), and Monday-Tuesday the week after.
So disruption to my work schedule will be minimal, thankfully. And I'll be able to get SOME sleep before the gigs on Fridays.
And court was all kinds of fun. I was called from the assembly room to the courtroom after less than an hour. Then I was called up to the jury box before the lunch break. And, after answering the judge's questions and the attorney's questions, I pretty much sat there while other jurors were excused with pre-emptories and replacement jurors were questioned. For about five hours, with a couple breaks.
Dull, dull, dull. But it's all part of the process. And I get to go back Monday.
I can't say any more than that. After it's all over, I tell you all about it.
But my day wasn't over.
I was looking forward to getting home and relaxing after that, and maybe even going back out and grabbing a bite to eat.
When I got home, I found an e-mail. It seems something I'd won on eBay had gotten delivered to my ex-wife. That's right - it went to an address that is no longer listed with PayPal or eBay (I double-checked to see if I'd missed deleting it somewhere, and I hadn't), where I have not lived for over two years.
Anyway, the e-mail said where it would be left, and that I needed to come pick it up. So I drove out and got it. Since I was in the old neighborhood, I went to a favorite restaurant and had a relaxing dinner - just what I needed.
Then I came home and relaxed with computer SKIP-BO.
And that was my day.
Tonight there's the band gig. I'm still tired, so a nap is in my plans for today.
Posting will be sporadic during the next two weeks. Don't worry - I'll be fine. And I hope you all will be, too.
Have a good weekend.
Be seeing you...on Tuesday.
