I've the uncertainty of jury duty hanging over me this week. I want to do my duty, but i also want to take Friday off to celebrate our anniversary and see the dentist and such a list!

So it goes.

Yesterday Christine and i went to Tea Time in Palo Alto, using a groupon to enjoy a tea and food pairing experience. With Christine working madly on her papers due today and tomorrow, it was a lovely break.

Meanwhile, the highlight of Sunday errands was finding a young woman with her arm stuck in the package bin. She didn't want her partner, who had the baby carriage, to help her, but she was QUITE stuck. I provided a little advice: get up higher, take her bag and coat off. Her partner helped with a long folded up box to prod something jamming the system out of the way. As soon as her arm was freed, what did she do: SHE STUCK IT BACK IN. Her armpit covered the graphic "Do not stick arm in bin" image.

I'm going back to the post office today. Oy.
