New Sunglasses and Jury Duty

As talked about earlier, I purchased some sunglasses from Steep and Cheep - and they arrived today....and I LOVE THEM! They fit well, they look good, they are comfortable, and tomorrow morning I will be trying them out on a run. I don't know why I didn't splurge on nice sunglasses before. I had gotten a pair from Sunglass Hut once - Oakley's - but I took them back after a few days because I couldn't justify spending so much on sunglasses. I think in part it was because they didn't fit as well as these did and I wasn't making as much money.

Speaking of which, did I mention that I worked today - 7.5 hours of productivity - with no one coming up and talking to me and interrupting me every 15 min at work, I get a heck of a lot more done. How freaking awesome is that?!? Oh wait, I spent a whole Saturday at work because I don't have enough of a life to have other plans... that isn't awesome at all. Of course, it does mean that my Monday off tomorrow that I am heading to the dentist for has been taken care of, which is nice since we HAVE to take Friday and next Monday off work for the Easter Holiday. Oh and I have Jury Duty on Monday, well maybe. The way that they do it here is that you get the letter saying you might have to show up, but you can call a number as of 5pm the Friday before and if your number didn't come up, you are all set, which would be AWESOME so that I don't have to get up early on my day off and go do my civic duty. Not that I don't want to do my civic duty, I take that very seriously, but it seems that the government doesn't take it very serious. If I do get called to duty, I will get paid $40 per day. That is not even minimum wage and it does not come even CLOSE to how much I will be loosing by not working. How can the government expect people to take jury duty seriously when it is hurting anyone who has to do it except those that are unemployed? sigh
