Jury duty rocks

On Monday, we got to watch “Marley & Me”. Yesterday I opted out of seeing “Star Trek” again and watched a couple episodes of “Veronica Mars” instead, on Eileen’s high recommendation. They’ve got a couple seasons currently streaming on the WB website. It’s pretty good so far, and Eileen swears it starts out “meh” and then gets awesome.

Even with taking a couple customer service calls and answering e-mails for work, it’s been a pretty easy going couple of days. I haven’t seen the inside of a court room yet, but this morning that’s going to change. We’re permitted inside specific court rooms for one hour in the morning, from 10:40 until 11:50. I was going to go yesterday but then got a work call, but today, I’m going to check it out, even if just for a little bit. Yesterday afternoon some of us got a demonstration of the software they use to randomly select prospective jurors in Franklin County. It’s pretty awesome. We got a history lesson on how they used to do it, and it looks like it’s vastly improved. Oh, technology.
