What a bunch of shirkers of one's civic responsiblity. If "paid jury duty" is part of one's employee benefits, one has no "real" excuse for "getting out" of jury duty. And definitely no right to criticize the state of the judicial system.


Just sayin' ...

I never tried to get out of jury duty, Kyle! Just joking around. I'm currently sweating out a two-year wait on federal jury duty. I just think some people seem to be called a *lot* more than others. Between my brother and I, we have *at least* twenty jury summons. Most people I know have *never* been called.


As for the state of the judicial system, I'm firmly against trial-by-jury. Not joking there. My peers are a bunch of idiots.


Now get to work on your schedule. *The Amazing Race* starts next week!

I was just kidding Kyle. I actually had a heinous ear infection and bronchitis and really couldn't hear in stereo. But the only reason I would try and get out of it is because when teachers are out, the kids go nuts on the subs and as good as a lot of subs are, you know the kids aren't going to really get anything done. I was out for a workshop the other day and my kids who are very well disciplined with me, became little fiends. I heard lots of complaints about them from all over the school. The sub just let them run amok. I don't even call in when I'm sick because a week's worth of stuff can be undone in just one day.

Two down, three to go.


We sat through the orientation and roll call, at which point the commissioner of jurors told us to wait ten minutes before the questioning of prospective jurors would begin. Ten minutes turned into about 30, and finally the commissioner of jurors came out and told us that the case had been settled when the two parties realized that the reality of a trial was actually upon them. (I think it's that they saw me and realized they didn't want a jury. ;-) )


I still have to call in to the county courthouse every evening this week to find out if they need jurors the next day, but they didn't need any for today, and there's another half of the juror pool that hasn't had to go in yet. So it's looking a good deal less likely that I'll end up on a jury.


Now to finish my Programming Challenge schedule....

*Now to finish my Programming Challenge schedule....*


Hurrah! Nearly all of mine have ended the same way. Last year I had to drive through raging floodwaters in my tiny car to municipal court, where more than likely some idiot wanted to argue a speeding ticket. I walked in soaking wet to learn that they settled earlier that morning. Phone call to tell me not to show up? No. Sorry for the inconvenience? No. Compensation? No. The experience? Priceless...

Rick Blaine (Humphrey Bogart) in "Casablanca": "The politics of the world are not my department. I run a TCM Programming Challenge. Lay off politics or get out."


We were doing great, folks, eight terrific schedules so far, and then we had a page of jury duty. Time to get this back on track to the schedules. Time is going by...tick tick tick. Midnight PST on September 30th is the deadline for getting the schedules posted.


Remember what they sang in "Gypsy": "Your schedules will be swell! They'll be great! Starting here. Starting now. Do it for Mama!"

On the bright side, I am not responsible for the missing strawberries. :-)

I bet you love puppies too. I, on the other hand, have almost the experience I need to win this challenge. The fact that it applies if you take Lynn, Kyle, Fedya, MattHelm and Sugarpuss out of the equation should have no bearing on anyone's vote for me.


You have your shirt but I'm trying to get a "Word Of Mouth" spot between a trailer and a "TravelTalks" short.

*...now every candidate will want to have an opportunity.*


I only want to take the opportunity to ask that no one vote for me. Really. I just enjoy the Challenge. Leadership isn't my style (how many threads have I started?), so I have little desire to be the moderator. And my amateur status would be sullied by the acceptance of a gift. :-)

LOL! Well, I hope you win!


I am totally joking about winning! I don't think that I should, being that this is only my first schedule! But I hope SOMEONE votes for me (at least one person!) because otherwise it will look pretty stupid...LOL!


Anyways, I couldn't resist posting the shirt....which by the is actually for sale on Amazon!

Well, everybody out there...are you going to sit back and just let "Boss Ray" Milland and "Honest Matt" Helm try to steal the election? Submit a schedule. Make them sweat about the outcome.


The September 30th deadline is coming up...Tuesday night at midnight PST. Still time to enter. See the rules in the 1st post of this forum.

I know you were joking and are kind to wish me winning however, I have a streak to maintain. I am at least a six time loser and would hate to mess it up. (I did win a DVD in an earlier challenge though.)




There is still time and if I, loser that I am, can do a schedule so can everyone. It is great fun and can give you a fine appreciation fot not only what the programmers do but also your fellow posters. There is time for a few more. Keep 'em coming.

"My Friends..."


These as grave times in the nation. People are concerned about their finances and their futures in this, the most extraordinary country in the world. And I believe now is not the time to play "programmer" when circumstances are so dire and when the stakes are so high.


It is times like these that a bartender is needed most. So, with that in mind, I have decided to suspend my Challenge work until further notice so I can devote all my energies and expertise to ensuring that no banker, broker or billionaire is left suffering when there is such need out there. I feel this is my patriotic duty in such _sobering_ times .

My fellow Americans,


Kyle in Hollywood's policies promote little more than massive public drunkenness, and will result in the [susan Haywards|http://us.imdb.com/title/tt0039840/] of the world nearly burning their children to death.
