The Belly of the Beast

Well things have changed dramatically sense Uncle Eddy's visit to jury duty. Mot only are knitting needles now verboten, but the once highly coveted Jig saw puzzles have been jammed unceremoniously into a corner. They have been irrevocably mixed together. One can no longer tell the pieces of The Bare Foot Boy from Van Gogh's Sunflowers.
The herd of people waiting to be assigned their fate must now read, eat, play hand held games,talk too loudly on their cell phones, with the fast of foot and lucky few who are willing to fork over a few dollars placing themselves in front of the four the working conputers, able to surf the web. However the hunt and peck typist is shit out of luck, as it seems that the jurors ahead of me have in their manic search for a relief from the boredom either worn off the letters from the keys, or have maliciously scratched the letters off.

More latter, though I must say, the tequilla at lunch very much helped my outlook torward the rest of the day.

So I didn't get around to sketching during this stint at Jury Duty, but I did dig out a few from a previous trip.

Haha, that's what it's like at the supermarket now. Even more so annoying with those little cellphones that wrap around your ear. Now everyone can walk around loudly talking about their lives like zombies!

I sat at a bus stop today and watched people make rights turns for a while. Every person who was talking on their cell phone that made that right turn, did not look to see if anyone was coming. Holy crap.

Cellular phones are taking over the world. >_<

Hey Vincent,
Just got into the "fucking blogging thang" and it's great to see all of this stuff up. Inspiring and oh so topical... at least those involved. Great to look at and as usual, beautifully crazy.

Jury duty is a privilege. That's what Fess Parker sid, anyway. He probably never had to do it. Or, if he did, he probably had a liquid lunch, too.

I spent a whole month on a jury last year, so I recognize those terrible hallways!

Vincent Waller said...

Yes, They are some dreary hallways.
Thanks everyone for popping by. I'll try to post more stuff, but my internet at home is down, and it seems there is always someone sitting in the scanning station at work.

I am so pleased to see that you are still sick and twisted.

Vincent Waller said...

Is that a Melissa that knows me? Or sick work?

melissa said...

Leffel.

Vincent Waller said...

Hi Mel,
How are you, and hows the little one? Though not so little anymore I'm sure.

melissa said...

I'm well. My little one is eleven years old now. My other little one is two years old. Had to learn it all over again.
How are all your people?
