Jury Duty - 8:30 AM

I've been summoned to report for jury duty this morning at San Francisco's Civil Court. I'll be honest--I'm not enthused about it. I don't mind doing my duty, but given that this is a civil court and it's a major conflict with my busy schedule at a critical time, I'm not happy about having this as (yet another) distraction.

I arrived at 8:15 AM, and grabbed a spot at the laptop desks along the wall. They provide numerous power plugs, phone ports, and wireless Internet. It's actually nicer here than most airport business lounges, just without the free food (which usually sucks anyway). There are about 100 people here now, all reading their papers, books, or magazines, or working on their laptops. Everyone seems quite calm, but there's little conversation.

Shortly after 8:30, about 6 people were called to follow someone to the next room. Sounds like they're starting at the end of the alphabet. If so, it bodes well for me. I'll let you know.
