  • Lunch Break

    I’m on lunch break until 2pm.  Wow.  Pretty intense.  There were 12 of us picked as a pool of alternate jurors.  We had to fill out the standard form – have you been sued, do you have any members in your family that work for the city…etc.  I was a little embarrassed when one of the lawyers said “Oh and we have a lady in here that has a very interesting job!  Miss Dean – tell the others what you do for a living!”…I turned 10 shades of red and then whispered “Uhhhh I’m weather lady on Fox News Channel…but please don’t blame me for the soggy ride home!”   A few people laughed nervously.  It was pretty uncomfortable.  Hasn’t anyone heard of right to privacy?  :)

    At any rate, during the questioning of all of us, I think I may have raised some doubt as to whether I might be a fair juror due to past experience and certain circumstances I have been in during my lifetime…I’m not even sure I can blog about the actual case?  Is there a lawyer out there that can tell me what I can and can’t disclose on the Weather Machine Blog?  :)

    I am starving, so I’m going to head downstairs and get a naughty bagel and cream cheese with a large coffee.   It’s been interesting to say the least.  Oh – and back in the little room that I was in earlier, there seems to be some strong flirtations between a tall attractive guy and a short slim blonde girl since I was gone.  He even offered her his orange.  Awwwww!  I swear I could write a one-act play on this experience over the last few days! 

    Thanks to everyone who is rooting for me!  I appreciate your support.
