Monday Memes
PromoGuy's Monday Mission 3.06
1. In the states, every citizen is expected to perform their civic duty and serve on a jury at some point. This week, I am on jury duty. Have you ever had to serve on a jury? I went in but was eliminated by the lawyers.
2. If you were to ever serve on a jury, would you be able to give someone the death penalty? If their crime justified that as a sentence I probably would.
3. One thing that concerns me about jury duty is what my life would be like if I had to convict someone. I'd always be worried about some sort of retaliation from the convict, or their family. Has fear of negative consequences ever kept you from reporting a crime or voicing your opinion? No, but the that hasn't happened. I do share the same concerns though.
4. When it comes to convictions, I've never even been convicted of speeding (accued yes, but heh, never convicted). Have you ever been accused of or convicted for breaking any laws? What's the real story there? Nope. *knocking on wood here*
5. It looks like I will have a lot of time on my hands this week in the jury pool. I may get called, I may not. If not, I go back tomorrow. Rinse, wash, repeat. How would you pass the time if you had to sit and wait around from 8am-5pm for 5 days? Read a book or magazines.
6. One thing I do like about this "civic duty" is that it will be at the downtown courthouse. I LOVE downtown. There is just so much life there. What part of your town is your favorite to visit? Why? What makes it so special? Downtown is fun. Lots to keep busy and plenty of ways to toss money around :)
7. I'm not that outgoing around strangers, so I doubt I will be meeting many new people this week. Do you have any problems striking up a conversation with someone you don't know? Have chance encounters with strangers ever led to interesting new relationships or opportunities? Not really. I am shy doing cold calls and that kind of thing but less so in person.
BONUS: So if I tell you that you're really something baby, will you stay or will you go away ? Depends on what you mean by "something" :)

Monday Memories
What was your first encounter with a computer? Where was it, how old were you, what sort of computer was it, what did you think of it? I guess it was in 6th grade. We had a computer class and did math stuff on them, oh and games- The Oregon Trail and some Balloon tossing game. Old school macs they were...well actually Apples. I thought they were fun. I loved playing the games on them.
