if you ever find yourself having to “fulfill your civic duty” with jury service, here’s the best solution i’ve found so far.

park at old town trolley stop and transit center and take the blue line trolley downtown. hop off the trolley at america plaza trolley station and it’s a quick couple blocks to the hall of justice (no, not the headquarters of the superfriends). if you find that there’s a long line to get in here, cross the street to the superior courthouse, where i happen to be the mayor!

parking at old town is $free.99, but it CAN be tough to find a spot. as long as you’re there before 9, you should be good. then, you just need to get a pass for the trolley. a day pass, round-trip will cost $5.00, but what i’ve done was get a 3-day pass for $12.00 — a nice $3.00 savings there.

it should be noted that parking by the courthouse, which is right next to the america plaza trolley station, will cost an awesome $13.00 PER DAY. yeaaaa… no thanks to that.

i talked to a buddy, who had to serve jury duty also — he parked over by petco park with an early bird special — $5.00 before 9a (and you had to be out by 6p). the downside is the trek

or you could try to cheat the system, as i’ve heard some do… by getting the trolley day pass from the juror’s office and NOT scratching off the date you are riding. i’ve only been asked for a ticket once in this three-ish weeklong service. and this one guy said that when asked to show a ticket, he showed the non-scratched pass and scratched it at the guard’s request. simple.

as you can see, jury duty is AWESOME

saw this guy’s comedy central special the other day — friggin’ hilarious… especially his bit about ross (store)

this might be the best idea for halloween this year… i’d need two other friends to wear “B” and “C” tho… the hilarious part is i want to pull this off at work!

don’t know what i’m referring to? i don’t suggest googling it — especially while at work… so here’s daniel tosh’s dissertation…

these would be sold at my new clothing company, “animated gifts” (i’m so clever…)

yup — it’s been a while since i’ve written here last… i’ve been writing some stuff for matters of grey lately. it’s nice to come back here and not have to use uppercase letters, type words like “cuz,” and heavily use ellipses…

so i come back with this — darth vader being a jerk

  • added nl west standings widget: a nice way to keep track of the padres’s record (> .500, baby!)
  • added world cup schedule calendar: it’s a custom google calendar i set up… just the countries that i’d be interested in watching
  • added last.fm badge to the footer with my other social networking icons. i think it’s a little better than pandora — you get unlimited skips and minimal ads (for now)… i really like their slideshow thing when music plays… it’s slick

it’s been a loooong couple of weeks for me… not only do i have a plateful at work, i got several projects for gorirra i gotta take care of.

i LOVE procrastinating… i actually wanted to write this post earlier in the week, but, well… you know how that goes?

java chip frappuccino, please?

so anyway, i wanted to work in “solitude” so i hit up a starbucks over by my place that doesn’t get much business. i get in and just as i thought… not many people in there and there was a big table for me to set up my laptop and other crap

i go to the baristas and ask about the wireless and apparently it’s not just for t-mobile hot spots or at&t users anymore! all i had to do was get a starbucks card and then register it… i’d then have 2 free hours of wifi there everyday.

i was looking at the card’s rewards and they’re pretty good… especially the free drink on your birthday.

after 5 stars (you get a “star” each time you pay with the card), you get to customize your drink with syrups, butterfingers, cheeseburgers, etc.

after 30 stars, you get a free drink after 15 stars

not bad… i’d really just like the free wireless angle of it — they had me at hello

so anyway, i was talking to the baristas there cuz they looked pretty bored and i mentioned foursquare and how i want to be the mayor of the place.

i swear they looked at me like i was a visitor from the future… “whaaaaat? fouurrsqqquareee?”

they mentioned that they got a letter about it, but they didn’t quite grasp it… so this means i shouldn’t be mayor of this particular one — they wouldn’t know what to do…

no eggs this year!

so i went to trivia at kelly’s pub with a bunch of friends and we effin’ won… we beat these other teams who frequent trivia night also… and they’re bastards too — they drink water and get one order of chips… we had to take ’em out

* it should be noted that the other teams are old women… not even cougars… sheesh…

so yea… we won and of course, i showed some shitty sportsmanship but yelling, fist-pumping, and dancing a jig…

here’s our scoresheet, like you even care…
