I got summoned for jury duty again. This is 2 times in 5 years. I did it last time but would rather set myself on fire then do it again.
Seems people have been abusing the mental health option as that requires a doctor to fill out. Or it says If you can't read or write english.
I can read and type it but I can't write it with a pen.
These are the cards I can play.
1. Go to a random doctor show my special person card and ask them to fill out the doctor thing. Claiming I'm too paranoid which I am. Most don't give a crap anyway specially medical centres. Or I can say I'm having problems sleeping. Which is well correct again.
2. Say I never got the actual form. The postal service here specially locally has a heap of problems. Some of which is destroyed mail. I know as my dad destroyed it lol. They have to prove I got it other wise.
3. Fill it out but ask for compassionate grounds. Claiming I have to care for my dad who is on holidays then. If he is left alone and bored he will become super drunk by lunch time. Plus he swears at the tv remote when he gets confused lol.
4. Just do it.
5. Not do it and get a fine.
The thing was the last time I did it it was both sex charges. 1 was a guy dropped the soap while in jail and ended up apparently getting it up the butt. 2 was a uncle of a kid who apparently fiddled with them.
The court I am listed as being sent to handles the above. So more ups in the butt.
So how would you play it?

Acting crazy or even dressing badly can get you a up to a $1100 fine and 2 months in jail. Though for me being quite umm yeah after my umm stuff Id most likely be let off.
After reading whirlpools forum I might be able to claim compassionate ground for not having a-lot of money for decent clothes. So ssshhh Its 33$ to go in and be sent home at 9.30am. Its 80$ if you are picked per day of the trial. If its longer then 2 weeks it goes up to 120$ per day. (it's something like that.)
If I have to go clothes shopping for socks shirts shoes and pants I will be losing money unless I get either picked or go in 3+ times. I have plenty of casual clothes but nothing I could go to bars/clubs etc in meaning its not appropriate for court. Same basic dress standard.
I think that is the best way to go actually. If this doesn't work go to the doctor just before and claim the above post stuff and get out then.
But on the other hand it would be nice to get some extra money. But I only gained 60$ last time I did it. If it was a 6 week trial then I could get a US trip out of it lol. But I don't want to hear about dropping the soap in the shower and getting it up in the Butt for 6 weeks though.

2 times last night I completely forgot what I was doing. I was looking for my game box as it had something in it I was after. Spent a hour looking for it was next to my computer all along.
Other thing was. I found a gaming headset for 40$, reduced from 90$. I was going to buy it but thought I'll wait a bit and maybe look for some reviews for it. Forgot too see when the sale ended when I found the site again its from back at 90$.
Reading a few posts about another one I found which apparently is poor. Recommended buy is a Plantronics GameCom 777. I'm still trying to ponder how I can set up for streams. Do I get a headset or have a room mic (it is only going to be only me). Do I try and use my laptop for everything. or Buy another monitor.
Hmmmm... I'd say that you should use a headset and direct line in for game audio. We use a room mic because of the 3 of us, but I wish it was possible to improve our audio quality with some alternate setup (although this is probably the best way for us to handle it).
Also, rocking two monitors would make your life muuuuch easier (we use 2 machines w/ 3 total monitors lol)

Well capture card handles the game sound pretty nicely. What xsplit does to it is the big question. It would be nice if my monitor had picture in picture. lol
I may need to get a cooling thing for my laptop. Normal use like this makes it toasty. Keeping it on for hours would super toast it. I never really plan on streaming for long time. 8 hours at a time would be about max. Kinda thinking my new years stream would be from 10pm to 2am my time. (or if they ran out of the new cable modems then Australia day 26th of January at some time)
Last 6 weeks 5 of the 6 orders have been delayed or had stuff missing. On saturday I order for 5.45pm Get there at 5.55pm. Girl gets pizza and a box of chicken things. Says that's 40$ I hand her money gives me change I notice the box is just one box I ask are they all in their. Yeah totally was the response. I ask 2 more times knowing full well they don't all fit in one box. They then looked oh 2 orders runs around the shop trying to see if they are hidden somewhere. Oh sorry we only made one order do you mind waiting. I was like sorry not today. Mainly because I got there late to begin with and they hadn't noticed and the fact they constantly screw it up.
So now I'm looking for a new pizza shop. Now this is the super fun part. I'm banned from 1 place for not remembering where I left my wallet. Another shop doesn't like accepting my orders gives me a stupid error every time I try to order.
This leaves me with the premium price stores. I know one delivers to here but there pizza's are strange like pumpkin pizza they are all fancy and nothing I really like the sound of.
The other one I have no idea if they would deliver here. Its on the same road as the stupid error shop which does deliver here when I don't get a error message. So maybe. These guys have the nicest looking but also cost more. 22$ for one pizza. It's 19$ for ham and pineapple. Weirdly enough if they deliver to my area then this is who I'll be getting. I left a message on facebook if I here nothing back by Wednesday then I'll send them a email. Hopefully they will reply before Saturday. If not I guess I'll call on Saturday and find out. I'm 8mins away from them so it isn't a super distance. The other thing is I'll have to buy my dad a small kid size pizza other wise I doubt he would eat it all. Which leaves me with.. Do I only order 1 on the off chance they look like their pictures or get 2 and if they do look like there pictures end up with more pizza then I can eat lol.
Does Australia have some crappy workers or something? Lol
I usually go with the better safe than sorry theory, plus I would eat the leftover pizza the next day if there was any.
Well the store is has about 90% of the store are new workers What happened to the old ones though have they 1. mass quit 2. been fired or are 3. on holiday. 4. part of each of the above. That's why I wonder if they will eventually have to give a crap.
I'm not really sure if I want to risk ordering too much. I will do a smaller order and see if its enough I think. With pizza's being 20$ each better to test before having ending up with a-lot left over for doggy. They are bigger and more chunky then the store I normally use.
www.pizzaplaza.com.au/specials.html that's there deals www.pizzaplaza.com.au/menu.html that's there standard prices. Want to feed leftovers to a dog on those prices ? Which is what happens with my old store's left overs. I think a regular size would be plenty for my dad. If I order from them again I may get him the kid size ones lol.
So I sent off the jury thingy form off earlier on. They can see how bad my writing is too. lol I asked for a exclusion due to money problems and well if that is rejected its plan B. Which is getting a doctor note.

Well I do eat left overs but being these pizza's are bigger but I'm not sure by how much. As I've never used them before. Current shop doesn't have a average pizza size sometimes they are big other times they are small. its mostly sauce and like crust. New shop are apparently decent cheese and toppings and a crust that's 3x thicker. So a large at the new store could be 4 large at the old shop.
Random story time: When I was on vacation a few years ago (all I did was visit internet cafe's for 2 weeks.) I had a dinner choice of pizza, subway or coffee lots of starbucks in the area some where only 2 stores apart. Had subway they annoyed me so I tried the pizza store quite yummy. Lots of cheese and that. I could only eat 2/3 and had the rest for breakfast the next day.. So chances are it could be the same. (but current/old shop I could order 3 and nom them all in a night.) My vacation basically included nothing but 15$ a day on internet and 20$ a day on pizza 6$ a day on soft drink. and random 30$ phone credit things. Never go on vacation when someone says its a good idea. /end random story time.
Currently I'm thinking 1 regular works pizza and one family chicken pizza. Get some sides. wings or whatever. As I can keep them in the fridge. Then adjust accordingly next time.
Store didn't get back to me. I fell a sleep at 1pm and stupid face ended up getting drunk. So couldn't take me to the store.
I just tried the store that rejects my orders for some reason and it worked. So dinner is from a moderately expensive place. Maybe other store next week.
So stupid face tells me "I don't have a problem with the store why can't you order me one from there." I said. "before stores had online ordering how did we get pizza before? that thing called the telephone?" Reply was "it costs money though." I thought you aren't even the one that pays the phone bill. (last call I made was to the power company which most of my calls in the last 12 months where.) Yet I have to pay it.
The store is walking distance away. He doesn't like waiting was a old excuse as to why he didn't order in-store. Instead of using the above he used the reason "I don't know what pizza I get." He then instantly said what one he gets.

I just got a reply to a email I sent to the pizza store earlier on they do deliver here. So yay.
New rant. A email I was sent. I'm on a few computer stores email list some I have used before others have nice sales. Earlier on I was sent a email saying core i7 16gig gaming laptop for $899. I thought sweet that's my price range. Click link takes me to the specials page. Laptop isn't there the at the email price it's $1099. I thought what meanie pants. I wouldn't even call it a gamer laptop either. Video card is ok nothing super fancy though. 16gig of ram is over kill I bet the battery drains super fast.
I think someone or something is reading my thoughts. I randomly thought about jury duty when I was like how can I get money to visit the US. Behold name randomly comes up for jury duty. I spent the weekend looking for laptops and I get sent emails about it. Only to be wrong. I don't get flu shots so mind control by flu shots isn't it.
