Justice is served

justiceYou may have heard that I was called for jury duty in Dane County this week.  Admittedly, I was not too enthused with the idea because I've heard that it is extremely boring. But faced with the possibility of criminal penalties, I showed up. First of all, I almost went to the wrong building. Despite the fact that the letter I received told me to go the Courthouse, I was headed toward the City County Building. Not a good tactical move since I was already running late. Did you know there's a lot of traffic downtown at around 8am? So I managed to sneak in just in time to hear the jury clerk talk to us about the importance of jury service, and explain to us that the little ticket we received can be used at the cafeteria to get a soda or coffee.  (I was hoping it was a raffle ticket!) Then we watched a 20 minute movie about the importance of jury service. Then we had a short break, and were told to be back by 9:15. Luckily, I brought 2 books, a crossword puzzle book, and my phone to play with....because nothing happened until around 10:25. That's when the jury clerk released about half of us. Seems a few scheduled trials weren't going to be happening after all. So I read some more and did a few puzzles...only cheating a few times (ooh did my cheating tip the scales of justice a little bit?) Then at around 10:50 about half the remaining group was released. I did some more reading. Then I went to cafeteria, where I was told I could not buy a 20 0z. bottle of Lipton Tea with my ticket. It had to be a 2o oz. bottle of SODA or coffee. I chose Diet Mt. Dew. Then at 11:45, we were released. The jury clerk said for the first time in her 23 years working there, all trials were either settled, postponed, or otherwise disappeared. We were free to go, and off the hook for 4 years. Gosh.  I didn't even get to brag about all the legal experience I've gained watching up to three hours of judge shows(People's Court, Judge Joe Brown and Judge Judy!) every afternoon. I'm sure that would have gotten me on a really juicy trial.

"Thank God I'm a Country Boy" John Denver: World's Worst iPod
There was just about universal love for this foot-stomper from John Denver. John Denver had hit after hit in the mid 1970s, and this was one of them, goign all the way to #1 in 1975. Go ahead, crank it up, sing it loud and proud. And maybe swing...

World's Worst iPod: Jump 'N The Saddle Band "The Curly Shuffle"
A silly novelty tune with a jump swing beat took the country by storm--at least parts of it--in early 1984.  A Chicago band called Jump 'N The Saddle scored a #15 with the Curly Shuffle...and it seems a lot of people have some pretty awesome...

World's Worst iPod:The Human League "(Keep Feeling) Fascination

World's Worst iPod:Dr. Hook "When You're in Love With a Beautiful Woman"
Here's a song that inspired high-schoolers to act like 12-year-olds back in the late 1970's. The lyric "when you're in love with a beautiful woman, it's hard," was just so darn hilarious!! Dr. Hook had a lot of hits in the...
