JURY DUTY – BOO!!

So today I am at jury duty, and I am hoping that I do not get called for a jury. I have stuff to do this week. So let me start off with some of my complaints.

1. Apparently there are two court houses where jurors are supposed to show up. I did not know this, so when I saw a big long line of jurors outside a courthouse I got into it. After being in it for about 10 minutes I found out I was at the wrong spot. So then I had to rush over to the other location.

2. There is a woman six feet from me who is hacking up a lung. I’m going to be so pissed if I get sick. They should put her in another room. They should have a closet for sick people.

3. There is a rude person who is sitting in a chair and is using another chair as a foot rest, so his legs are totally blocking one of the walk ways and he barely moves if someone needs to get by. And he left to go on a break, and this woman sat there and was using a TV stand to put her laptop on and plug into the wall, and then this ass came back and said “I was sitting there, I’m really attached to this chair.” So he makes her move, and she is understandably pissed off, and he’s not even using the plug or anything. What an asshole.

One good thing is that the coffee shop is cheap. I got a pastry and large coffee for $3.50. One of those cheap packaged pastries that is one of my guilty pleasures. And there is free wifi here which is nice. I’m going to work on posting more New York photos.

MUSEUM OF ART AND DESIGN (MAD)

We went to the Museum of Art and Design, located on Columbus Circle, it’s very nice, and there are about five floors of exhibits. While we were there they were showing a lot of African and African-American art. PARENTAL DISCRETION ADVISED: some of this art is shows some naughty bits.

Here is an interesting table.

These scarabs are actually part of a bookcase. Very pretty but it might creep me out if I owned it.

There were a bunch of cocktail glasses in the window of the stairwell. Here are some of my favorites.
