It was a short dress and my heels were about four inches. I waited quite impatiently to "get the hell out."
My biggest fear was being sequestered to a long case, because that would limit the amount of time that I could work with the attorneys that I have hired here in Delaware, to register copyrights, trademarks and well, legal stuff.
Everything jurisdictionally seems to have a wait and I'm training myself in the "patience" category. Luckily for me, during jury duty, I brought a deck of cards and I was able to convince a nice gentleman to play War with me.
The scary thing about the four-hour juror selection was that everyone knew each other, and even the conservatives questioned my reasoning for being there. "It was an unlucky draw," I said with a sinister grin.
Anyways, I got a really cool certificate for serving. I may even frame it.
I don't really flash out the "fame" card, as it's often suggested because you are more important than other people. When someone recognizes me anywhere, I'm quite surprised and even flattered, and probably always will be.
I truly love it when people make pleas about their importance though and why they are so much better than the next. I laugh and usually just say, "Ah, that's cute."
Now, if people talk about how fortunate and blessed they are to have had certain experiences and how lucky they are to beat certain odds, it's classy. While Jennifer Tilly never claims to be the best card player, she wins and even when she is knocked out, she holds her composure.
Her blogs are always hysterical because she goes in and out of the crazy dream states too. We all know her movies and the scripts she chooses are often notably recognizable. She is continuously a wonderful actress and of course she's stacked in the right places, in my opinion.
In any event, I was talking to my friend, Paul, who was in the military for a bit and just got a cool gig doing IT stuff in Vegas after being released. We were professing our love for Sonic the Hedgehog. June 23rd marked 17 years of development. I'm kind of sad that Sonic's hair is less spiky.
I should have toasted my wine glass that evening to him! How cool is Sonic, the guy spins like crazy?
Anyways, I got one of those Wii Fit things. It's cool, if you're like me and prefer working out in the privacy of your own home.
I used to go to gyms ... it's distracting for me; I end up staring at hot men, unless I have someone to yell at me for losing focus.
Instead, I am now subjected to throwing hissy fits at my television as it gives me the high score on yoga and fitness right away. I wanted to work out! Why are you scoring me?!
The personal trainers I've worked with before have gotten used to the vulgarities being tossed at them. Good thing there is no penalty box for working out!
I also wanted to send out congratulations to John Phan, who certainly has the lucky Buddha on his side - very well deserved and nice job!
I'm preparing for my arrival for the Series, as I have had a rough year and spending time relaxing with my close family and old friends has certainly given me my spirits back as they are always there for me, no matter what.
Thanks guys! I love you!
