Pros and Cons of Jury Duty in July


1. I wear my Naot with Thorlo sweat socks all day every day and no one cares
2. I wear my khakis all day every day
3. I ride my bike to Point Lookout every morning at 6 a.m. and am still at my computer by 8:15 am
4. No LIRR for a month
5. No City streets for a month
6. Some interesting stuff going on in court (although it may get stale real soon)
7. July is a relatively slow month at work; any other time would have been horrible
8. I'm home by 5:30 pm or earlier (albeit still working)


1. In order to ride my bike I have to get up at 4:30 a.m.
2. I'm working (for my job) on my computer and BB before, during and after Court hours
3. Ridiculous amount of downtime; the waiting never ends

All in all, it could be a lot worse

    A temporary change in a work routine can be curiously refreshing.

    kol hakavod. how do you get up 4:30 am . I usually dont get to sleep untill 1 am. the only quiet time in our house of teenagers is between 2:30- 5:30 am. if i didnt ride to work as a commute i wouldnt get much riding in.
