On Easter we were supposed to go to my mother's house for lunch.
I had the backdoor trots.
And the only Pepto I had had frozen or something so it separated. No matter how much I shook it, the solids stayed at the bottom of the bottle. I took some anyway. 3 times, LOL. It didn't work.
I called her and canceled. She came over later and brought some spiral ham, mac & cheese, sweet potato casserole and I don't know what else because I still haven't looked at the plate.
So...Easter was not a good day physically.
BUT I saw a lot of movies that I hadn't been willing to rent on the free HBO that we have until the 11th.
I saw Pride & Prejudice. I liked it. But Kiera Knightley & Judi Dench NEED makeup, LMAO. Really bad. Like Oprah bad... I never noticed how much like a man Kiera looks. Or how WIDE her jaw is. Poor girl.
I saw Madagascar. I liked that too. I might buy it for Evan.
I saw Monster in Law. We had already seen that, but I liked it so I taped it and watched it again.
I saw Walk the Line. Johnny Cash had a lot in common with Ray Charles. They both lost brothers when they were kids. They were both whores. They were both on drugs. It was a lot better than I thought it would be. Juaquin was actually looking kind of sexy to me, LOL. EW. I don't know why. Because he's not attractive. But anyway, it was a good moviefilm.
I've taped Brokeback Mountain. Haven't watched it yet. I should watch it while Evan's at school. If I don't fall asleep.
So today was Jury Duty. I wrote a letter trying to get out of it. Never got a response. So I dragged my happy ass out of bed at 7am and got ready to go. I've never had jury duty before, so I don't know what kind of questions they ask during voir dire. But I was prepared to give the most outrageous answers to whatever they asked to get excused ASAP.
Got to the courthouse on time. Sat in the geedee courtroom reading a book.
Strange Woman - It's cold in here, innit?
Me - *acting deaf*
SW - It's cold in here, huh?
Me - I don't know
SW - Man I hate courtrooms! I hate coming here.
Me - Oh *raising my book to cover my face so she'd stop talking to me*
After 30 minutes, some guy comes in.
Some guy - How many people are here for Jury Duty?
Me - *raising my hand*
SG - *Looks around* Only 2?
Me - *thinking that all the other people in there were criminals!!!!!!!!!!!!!*
SG - Well, it's been canceled. We sent out letters Wednesday, but I guess you didn't get them. But we thank you for coming, blah blah jury system blah blah without people like you willing to serve. I can take you down to where you need to go to get work excuses
Me - *standing up*
SG - Ma'am, do you feel like walking down there?
Me - I don't really have any choice, do I?
SG - Well I can get it and bring it to you
Me - Can you get my car up the elevator? Because that's where I'm going.
SG - Oh. *nervous laugh*
I drove 60 miles (round trip) for nothing. Wasted my damned gas. Didn't get my post "Getting Evan off to school" nap.
My back hurts.
I am soooooooooo tired. Of course I didn't get to sleep until 5 am. In spite of the Tylenol PMs I took at 10 pm last night to TRY and get some sleep.
I drove to Wal-mart because I need some more blank CDs. Sat in the car for a minute, decided the CDs could wait and drove home.
Now I'm here.
I don't even want to get up to go to bed, LOL.
