stuff about where I live and play, and maybe some stuff about where I work and play.

free bird.

so, i didn't go to jail yesterday following my traffic court appearance at the Metropolitan Court House, despite a few of my jokester co-workers tried to convince me to wear an orange jumpsuit to my arraignment to "make things easier."

NAY! although my multiple violations included:

  • a burnt-out headlight
  • an improperly displayed license plate
  • a little "failure to appear" at my last court date (uh, oops?)
  • a potential penalty of nearly $400 for the above-mentioned item

i only had to show proof of correction and pay a $10 processing fee and i was on my merry little way. it loved it when the cashier handed me my receipt and said, "YOUR CASE IS NOW CLOSED."

it feels good to be free.

Blek, done spent enough time in the courthouse when my boyfriend was going through some legal issues. They're as depressing as the damned DMV.
