it's my lucky day

first this:

then this:

but then this happened and it was all okay:

(where was everyone else? lindybakercakes, lindsay "big mama" ross, lindsay "booger hair" dickinson and jenny muddypuddles were there also. i'd photoshop you in but don't make me dislike blogging more than i already do.)

i've gotten some good advice on how to get out of jury duty, but the best by far was from my mum.

"if you say you hate ____ (fill in the blank race) people maybe they won't want you."

thanks mum. you're a hoot.
if you have some advice i can actually use let it be known.

I don't know what you drive, but there doesn't seem to be any damage to it. So one can only conclude that you dislike the make and model of the car or the sticker choice. Assuming it is the sticker choice, I agree.

I miss you, and I am starting a blog just for you.

I totally got out of Jury Duty last month. I got all kinds of advice as well. What I did was postpone it for 90 days. So I'll get called again in June but I'll be living in Utah by then so I don't have to go. I also called them up and told them I was a student and they said they could postpone it till my next break. My idea of Spring and Summer break doesn't exactly include jury duty though. You can also play the racist card. I've never actually heard of that working for anyone though. Good Luck!

so my mom got called to jury duty, and in one of the questions it asked if we owned a horse, which we did at the time. and they let her off. she didn't have to do it. maybe it had something to do with hay-poisoning? your mom's advice was perfect!
