A Little Pick Me Up

The breaks just went out on Kermit- which means I have to drive Stanley (mom's cruddy van) to work tomorrow, which means no cruise control or Harry Potter- which means it's going to be a very long hour drive to Idaho Falls.  Plus, I have no money, I'm not getting any hours at work so the prospect of money is dim at this moment. I just got summoned for Jury Duty (I was JUST summoned in Colorado before  I moved- Welcome to Idaho)  I think it's time for a list to come to the rescue!

Things I love about my job:

  • The simple fact that I actually *have* a job
  • It's busy so the time flies by
  • Whenever a baby is born they play Brahm's Lullaby over the sound system
  • It's challenging
  • I am picking it up quickly
  • the people are nice (for the most part)
  • I get to use my brain (it's rusty)
  • The drive is pleasant (with HP for company and nice weather- once those things change that commute will totally suck)
  • It gives me a reason to get out of bed in the morning
  • The awesome ice!
  • I'm not glued to a desk
  • The NO TOBACCO campus (smokers have to take a two block hike to light a cancer stick)

I'm sure a lot of it will change in time, but for now, I really like it.

Jury duty is the worst in Colorado. I hope it is better in Idaho.

I recently got a jury duty notice too! I want to about crazy. Ask Jermaine and he'll tell you I love solving crimes. Yay for the job and hopefully the hours pick up fast. I don't covet your long drive when the snow hits.

I'm not opposed to doing my civic duty- I just am amazed that I've had nothing to do for a year and now that I actually have a paying gig they want to take me away from it.
