Allegedly, funds have been set aside for me to get an assistant sometime in 2008. Please, God whom I don't believe in, please let it be soon.
Just to make things ever funner, I've got freaking jury duty. And New York is lolz nutz. There's a courthouse 20 minutes from me, where juror duty starts at 1:00 PM. And then there's a courthouse 1 hour from me, where juror duty starts at 9:30 AM. Guess which courthouse I got assigned to?

I'm pissed though because I had wanted to take a day off in March to go to Albany, but now with this time off from work I won't be able to swing it.
