Even though I’m all for fulfilling civic duties, after this week, I never want to be on a jury again. I can’t imagine the toll it takes on those in the legal profession who are exposed to these matters all the time.

That’s my service over with, although I think I’m going to need to take a few days to clear my head.

A couple of months ago I received a jury citation, and today I was selected from a pool of sixty or so to be part of a jury with fourteen of my peers. It’s both daunting and inspiring to see the wheels of justice working up close.

Obviously I can’t talk about the trial, but safe to say things might be quieter from me for the next while.

Tempted to stop giving money to stores who add that PayPal “would you like a copy of this cart…” overlay.

It’s intrusive, annoying, slows down browsing, and very often appears on *every* page load. Including the cart itself.
