Day 198: Yabby and Truffle Turnover

Best movies with court room scenes? To Kill a Mockingbird. Primal Fear. Liar Liar. Twelve Angry Men (jury more than court). The Accused. The problem with these good movies is I now have elevated expectations and an insatiable desire to be chosen for the jury duty I have recently been advised I am possibly to be sequestered for (if I am lucky). I am so excited. The reality will, I am sure, be a number of other truths. One: knowing I work in conjunction with the emergency industry, with police specifically, they will think I am not a good candidate. Two: if I am lucky enough to get through I will probably get a case that involves incredibly boring white collar crime. And, three: none of the dramatics and theatrics that happen in movies are ever likely to happen in real life. Regardless, I am still crossing my fingers.

I love filling out forms. In a way they are a mini survey into your own you-ness. They tell and remind you of things about yourself. So I have sent the form back to the jury people and have discovered the following about myself: I am not the Attorney General. I do not work anywhere in the legal or judicial industry. I have not committed treason or any other indictable crime. I am not bankrupt. I have no holiday planned between now and the thirty-first of October. I don't live an unreasonable distance form my court system. I don't have any reason that procludes me from serving on a jury. It is a lot of don'ts, but I think they are some worthy ones to cross off the list.

  1. You forgot "A Few Good Men" - 'YOU CAN'T HANDLE THE TRUTH'.

    I did jury duty for a day a few years ago. No luck getting on a trial though. Each time a case comes up the call in about 4 times as many people as they need for the jury. I went to about 5 of these cattle calls, but never even made it to the short list.

    If nothing else you'll get lots of reading done.

    1. You know, I thought about that one too, but there is something about that movie I don't like. The something may be Tom Cruise. And now I really want to do it if it means lots of reading!!

  2. I also enjoy 'Shadow Play' from The Twilight Zone (Season 2), poor Adam Grant.

Day 279: Entertainment and Wishes

I have brain-freeze from a three hours/three hours/ten hours-during-the-day sleeping pattern over the last three days twenty-four hour periods (that ole chestnut, again) and so even though it is not Sunday, I am getting in early and loosening the clenched up brain cells by cheating on topic ideas with Sunday Social. Their link actually goes up tommorrow so be sure to check back and see what everyone else had to say when Sunday eventually does roll around.

Q: What is currently on your wish list?

A: I need nothing. Nothing. So let's talk about want. I want to be able to find some amazing thrifted pieces on my upcoming (eight sleeps) trip to the States. Luck and fate will have a lot to do with it, but I would be very happy to find some, or all, of the following as well: a chambray shirt, a real bomber jacket (just got one that I had different ideas about when I bought it from SheInside—it's really just a fleece jacket), belts, a vintage leather jacket, more tutus, sumptuous f…

Wear 1: Dropped My Shopping.

Day One of three hundred and sixty-five pictures of Irene (left) and I (right) on the internet. We're using it as a way to develop or realise a fashion style, and as a friendly competition as to who wore it better? Like every journey or quest, this year's project will teach me a little, make me think a bit and lend me some laughs and enjoyment. I hope also to slowly make sure everything in my clothes closet and my shoe closet is utilised: even perhaps the bags and boxes of outrageous, or not, op-shopped (thrifted) items secreted in cupboards and under beds. Other hopes: fewer words (believe it or not), more pictures and time to catch up on unfinished blogs from the last three years!

I had my outfit planned, but as I dressed this morning for work, I, well, chickened out. I lost the cape and replaced it with a black cardigan. I thought my work colleagues would think I looked strange and slightly overdressed. Lesson One: I am not brave in person (posting a silly picture on the in…

Day 348: My Favourite Colour

Who: Melanie at Bag and Beret

What: The Travelling Yellow Skirt Freak Show

When: A while ago (have I told you trying to buy a house keeps getting in my way!)

Where: At, around and in the vicinity of ACCA

Why: Do you even have to ask?

Who Else: B—— for the photos, Melbourne Bike Share for the props (although I did pay for that, and we spent so long riding around getting moving pictures that they charged me again so I am not really sure why I am telling you about them: this isn't a plug, except that they are quite cool!)

What the ?: Sunshine incarnate in the form of a yellow skirt travels the world searching for women, bold and beautiful, who make it their own for a day, or a week and share their own take on its joyous light with everyone out there who thinks that being an exceptional individual with the daring and bravado to walk your own way, strut your own stuff and be your own you is a good thing! That's my take on it, but you can read the full story on the link to the skir…
