Jury duty again

I received a summons for jury duty again.  This time, it's Federal jury duty.

I have been called for jury duty in San Joaquin County, California and once in Pima County, Arizona.  Both times for county court.  This time, its the big time.

I have to report on September 8.  I was dismissed the last time because I knew too much about the case before it started.  I doubt I'll be lucky enough for that twice in a row.  I'm kind of looking forward to it because I will likely Tweet on Twitter about what's going on while I'm there so it'll be fun!

In other news, Lucky wagged his tail for the first time since we've had him.  That's 2 1/2 months!

Anthony and I were taking him for a walk and let him sniff and greet a few other dogs from neighboring apartments and he wagged in excitement.  I couldn't believe it.  He hasn't done it since then but I search for any breakthroughs that I can.

I've been trying a couple of new things with Lucky.  I have been sitting on the floor each night in the living room with him and petting and hugging him for long periods of time.  He's actually responded well to that by snuggling up and seeming happy that its happening.  I've also let neighbors pet him and let him sniff other dogs now that I'm confident that he won't suddenly attack.  I'd be liable for him hurting anyone or anything so I had to feel like he wouldn't do that.

The last bit of news for this post:  Anthony and I went to Walmart Neighborhood Market at 22nd and Craycroft on Thursday night and one of the items we purchased was Blue Bunny Red Carpet Red Velvet ice cream that also has cream cheese icing mixed in.  Its a creation of Chef Duff from the TV show Ace of Cakes.  I saw the commercial on TV and when I saw it in the store I had to buy it.

I've had one bowl of it so far and its pretty good.  Its rich, so if you're on a diet it won't help you.  It also turned my lips red (which made me feel darned sexy).  I'd recommend at least trying it.
