I'm back, I'm back!
I hate always disappearing for the weekend!
Let's just say that what I estimated for the weekend on Friday pretty much happened and leave it at that. Nothing too exciting. Oh, except that Dan got my computer fixed, so I can now be online from the comfort of my own air conditioned bedroom and don't have to borrow my roomie's computer any longer. My hard drive had crashed, so I now have a new one, but I have to go back and re-set up everything again, so that's a bit of a pain.

Today was Jury was very interesting. I'll spare you the suspense and tell you now that I wasn't selected. The selection process was nothing like I thought though.
Okay, I had to be at the court house for 9:00 this morning. Meant I got to sleep in, so that was exciting!! Waited in line, had my paperwork checked, etc. Then we all sat in the gallery area and were addressed by the Jury Clerk. Told us the general rules: no food or drink, no gum, not hats, no cell phones/pagers, etc. Then he showed us a video on the Jury System in Canada, who sits where/does what, etc. Then the judge entered, and went through all the reasons people might have for not serving on a Jury: undue hardship, medical reasons, etc. and dismissed about 20 people in the process. Then, the clerk put the remaining 80 or so names in a barrel and drew out 20 at random. I wasn't one of them. From there, the people faced the Defendant and two lawyers and the lawyers both had the opportunity to be "content" or to "challenge". They didn't have to give reasoning for either decision, but if either judge "challenged" that prospective juror was automatically dismissed. The whole process took about 2 hours.
When I left the court house, I was told to return next Tuesday (since Monday is a holiday) unless I heard otherwise, so I was kind of excited...still a chance. But by the time I got home tonight, there was already a message on my phone saying there would be no trials next week and I am dismissed from Jury Duty. Oh well. C'est la vie.

Oh yeah, and the wedding shoes I ordered came in on the weekend. They don't fit, so I returned them and the hunt is still on.

Dinner time!

I actually had a really productive day today! Most of my weekends are productive. What's up with that?
I'll finish up yesterday first though.
Went to the Chiropractor, got Dan a hair cut and the oil changed on his car. He also go an engine shampoo too, I was thoroughly disappointed by the process though. I had pictured lots of foam and pretty smelling soap. Turns out they spray your engine with a heavy duty de-greaser then scrub it with dish brushes then hose it off and spray on some kind of sealant. His car still stinks to high hell whenever we turn the vent on. What a let-down! :)
We also did a bit of shopping. I went to Chapter's and bought my dad some new local map books and a card. He loved them! They're always going for motorcycle rides to remote areas and maps come in really handy. I got them one of the area we live in now, as well as the area they're planning to move to. Handy stuff.
Then we came back into Toronto and started getting BBQ stuff ready. We had Robin over for dinner. It was really nice to see him again! We had a great evening.
Went to bed late and got up late this morning. It rocked! :)
We got up and just vegged in front of the Dreamcast for a while before showering and heading out to do our laundry. The weather was nuts today! We went into the laundry mat and it was sunny and by the time we put our laundry in and went to go next door to get some groceries it was pouring rain! So we got our groceries and put them in the car and it was sunny. Went into flip the laundry from the washer to the dryer before walking to the dollar store and it was pouring again. We stayed in the dollar store until it stopped raining and then I went back to check on the laundry. Craziness!!
So we took the laundry and the groceries home and I called my mom to see if she wanted to go shopping. I was in desperate need of a new pair of sandals since it's getting too hot to wear pantyhose to work every day! I got these sandals:

These Sandals
I totally love them!! I've been trying to find a pair like them for years. I probably spent too much money ($125) but I don't care. They're really high quality so I'll be wearing them for years. Yay sandals!
Then I took the Go Train home and am chilling (literally...did you know it's supposed to go down to 10C tonight??). Going to call Dan soon and see how his afternoon was.

I bought new shoes and I love them. Caron I know what you mean about new shoes getting you out of a funk!
These are like the mary jane shoes you used to get when you were little, only in my size! They're so comfortable and they were like 10 bucks! I'm so impressed.
Rock On Walmart!
