I just like using the word 'import'.

I got summoned for jury duty!

I know that lots of people I know will be going *yawn* "Been there done that" .. but for me it's the first time and I'm all excited. Yeah, I know I might not even get picked and I know I should take a book, but.. community! Helping out in an important way! Stuff like that! Can you smell the naïveté from there? Yeah? Ah well..

I need to start making my List O Stuff for BM. And Brisbane. And LA. And I'm procrastinating. I just don't do lists very well, and I know I already have pretty much everything I need, it's just a matter of finding it, checking it and seeing if it will all fit in my pack and weigh under 20 kilos. And sorting out a mattress of some sort. And.. OMG I nearly made a list! Can't have that. Just Say No To Lists!

Yesterday I had to criticise someone. A friend. I found it really really hard. It took me a long time to word it in a way that I found acceptable, and spent the whole time battling my assumption that it would make the recipient hate me. Of course, they didn't, but WTF? Where did I get this idea from? Mum? Dad? Explain yourselves! However, actually getting it out of my head and therefore out of my hands, was actually quite cool. Like a weight lifting (without the increased muscle mass). It's not something I think I'll ever be completely comfortable doing, but some positive reinforcement for something that has negative connotations was nice.

Today, I'm having educational discussions with a young friend (ok, younger than me anyway *grin*) about Stuff Of Great Import. More young men should be so switched on. Yep.

Quiz question: Did Coca-Cola really used to have cocaine in it?
