Rigging the Jury

Another “True Confession”: I’ve never served on a jury. I have gotten the notice a few times, but all times but one, when I called the recording I was told I didn’t need to report. That one time I made it upstairs to the courtroom, but they filled the jury and alternates before I even got to answer a question. But yesterday I was summoned to court to serve. (If you want to know HOW that happens in SL – summonses are served via Plurk.)

It was a fascinating experience. You can read all the details on Honour’s post. I admit – what I heard there was shocking. Who KNEW that such things happened in SL???? (Apparently Everybody knew, but you need to read the trial proceedings for the inside story.) On the other hand, I got to see notables up close: the High Priced Counsel SeanMcPherson Senior (wow, I could NEVER afford HIS rates!), the reknowned prosecuting attorney Second Lie (I’d recognize HIM anywhere) and Gertrude, who usually is the court-appointed defense attorney. The Second Life Halls of Justice are as beautiful and impressive in person as they are in photos. My fellow jurors and I were quite honored to be part of such a momentous SL event, and to be present when Chief Justice McArtherops handed down the verdict.

There's not much to say about me. I discovered SecondLife by accident, wandered in, and decided I wanted to stay. This blog was a chronicle of my adventures and misadventures in SL. It also includes stray thoughts that occur to me as a result of my time in SL. Both I and my avatar are female. We both love water and the beach and gardening and parties and hanging out with friends. Updating this after quite some time. I haven't appeared in SL in many many months (probably over a year by now) but SL has remained in my thoughts. I do miss my SL, but at least I still have contact with some of my friends from there. In the meantime.... this blog has evolved to be about my RL adventures. :) Nowhere near as risque as my SL but I do keep busy. I still like all the things listed above. I didn't have any cats in SL (only ducks and a panda) so my cats feel that they should play starring roles in my posts. :) I didn't do much eating IN SL although certainly food and drink accompanied me in RL while I roamed inworld. Cooking and baking have become more fun and interesting once I redid my kitchen. That renovation took longer and cost more than if I'd done it virtually, but I'm thrilled to have a tangible new kitchen! I hope you like food and drink as well! Thanks for reading!
