The sock and I are ready for tomorrow's adventure. We have packed the necessary knitting, and a book just in case the knitting is confiscated (hey, I've been reading up, and apparently this is all too common. Please. As if my 5" 2.25mm bamboo needles are more dangerous than my car keys.).
Unfortunately, I discovered today that if I am dismissed before noon I have to go back to school. Granted, I get the rest of the day as a "work" day (ie I don't have to teach and my sub doesn't lose a half day's pay), but still. C'mon people - don't you know that half the "fun" of jury duty is the possiblity that you'll be excused and get the day off? Oh, and I have to prove that I have jury duty or get docked a personal day - I have to turn in a copy of my summons and a copy of my "dismissal form" that has the time I was excused on it. Great. No way out of that one.
I figure one of two things will happen: I will be dismissed at 11:59, or I will be seated on a jury. Every teacher I've spoken to in the past few days who's had jury duty within the last year has been seated on a jury, and missed 2-5 days of school. Fab. Apparently they like the teachers.
Ah well. Fingers crossed for lots of good knitting time at any rate.
P.S. The spring Interweave preview is up. There are a few that look promising. Too bad I'm not buying any yarn right now.
