Jury duty got out early---whoo-hoo!!!! And to top it off, it's one of those gorgeous days....those days that I love living in this city.
Woke up and headed over and got lost looking for the courthouse, only to find another girl around my age lost too and we ended up finding it together and hung out all morning. She was so sweet and I'm always complaining how unfriendly this city is, but she was awesome. We had like ~2 hours of down time (the rest was spent in a room we could hear a pin drop in, so I studied), so we just talked and talked....went over what we do, where we're from, college life, music/tv preferences, etc. It wasn't like we wonderfully clicked, it was just refreshing to talk to someone non-medical and engage those social skills I sometimes feel I'm lacking. It reminds me that yes, I'm friendly and bubbly and ohmygosh, people do want to get to know me. The only downside was she's a married 20-something, whose entire family lives over here and as we exchanged stories between her married life and my medical life it was apparent we have no overlap. So we parted ways with a "it was great to meet you." But sincerely, it was. So that was fun! I still can't believe all 5 cases settled and we got out at noon--boo ya!
So, what else? Chuck ratings were up! YAY! I'm not naive enough to think that all this is going to save the show, but I'm not completely without hope either. I'm just happy to do my part and think good thoughts. It's all I can do.
So, I know I already mentioned that promo, but eesh--I woke up at 4:30 AM still thinking about it....and even today, as we're sitting in the quiet waiting room, I was thinking--my couple, isn't it wonderful how far they've come? remember Ellie's wedding reception in the courtyard with their sweet dance? And now they're having their rehearsal party (I assume) there--they're so committed in love they're getting married! And then I think, what's going to happen? My show can't be cancelled. They deserve a happy wedding! Oy vey.
Other than my Chuck issues (Lily called last night--I called back because hello no one talks during that special 8pm hour!--and she was cracking up at my C/S rants), I just need to keep this sunny attitude. I want to go out to the park to study, but I know me--it'd just people watch.
So, since my hair needs doing, I think I'm going to straighten it again. I have a problem. I can't even remember what it looks like curly. It's just so much easier to manage in the mornings straight. And I have energy since we went to get a latte around 9am....so yea.
