matches

I have gotten mail from two people who have seen my profiles - on match.com and on yahoo's personals. Neither seems ideal but I think I will meet them. Could become friends, or more, you never know.

How to Try a Murder

I am reading a book with this title, by Michael Kurland, who has written many fiction and nonfiction books. It is subtitled "The handbook for armchair lawyers". I found it in the last-chance sale table at Barnes & Noble, thought it might be interesting. And interesting it is. It follows a fictitious case through the process from discovery of the murder, to indictment of the suspect, the lawyers on both sides, the process all the way through. Interspersed with the story of the case is information about the legal process at each step. Love it!!

I think it's particularly appropriate that today I am on call for jury duty. I was put on telephone standby last night, have to check in again between 11:30 and 12:00 today, in case they need a jury for this afternoon. Not very likely.

I'm cold and I'm sleepy. I just want to lie down. I say this a lot. Particularly in afternoons. Is it old age? Dissatisfaction? Am I finding my Spanish or Italian roots, wanting a siesta?

I got out of work late, as it turned out, because I got called to the counter right at three and was stuck for forty-five minutes. So I went home, dived into these little ginger animal cookies I bought yesterday (I knew it was a bad idea at the time), watched some television, took a nap, listened to phone messages. I have just finished running the vacuum over the kitchen carpet and the living room and straightened up a few things. I have done a little work in the kitchen. There are little projects, rearranging, cleaning projects, in there to be done. I am about to lift some weights. Probably with the stellar team of Stacey and ...and...what's her name?...Jennifer! Yeah.

feeling better

I was near-bingeing today, what with a potluck at noon and then those cookies this afternoon. So my head got fuzzy, felt close to a headache. The workout fixed it, fortunately. I feel much much better. Maybe even well enough to work on the last article, or almost the last, for the foundation newsletter.
