Jury Duty



Probably the only good thing about jury duty - being able to look out the 16th floor windows of the court building.

Of course, if you don't mind the various indignities - metal detector, shoe removal, possession scan - and have nothing better to do, you can ride the elevator up and stare out the windows without the added enjoyment of being cattle-prodded into satisfying your civic duty.

I was called for duty June 28th but my doctor got me out of it. Furst time that ever happened to me.

Your readership abandon the blog due to lack of posts?

I hope not.

Hey Scum!

Glad to see you made it back.

I moved! I no longer live in Stuccolin.

I now live a mile and a half from the strip.

Yahoo, Mt. Dew!

The lack of posting was due to the intensifying search for a new pad and then the Move itself.

So Lavi sez: "intensifying search" involves doubling the craigslist time (up to 8 minutes per day) and sending SWMBO out for reconn missions...

I will grant that the "Move itself" would be daunting as it involved detritus carefully accumulated over decades. Such things are not undertaken lightly - though a bit of creative arson would have made short work of the entire endevour.

We, his loyal readership, are glad to see he survived. Vegas Rex is getting boring.

Sounds like Lavi lives in The Ghetto now.

Or a hi-rise penthouse???

I moved to a very small Scummy Ranchette with Mr. Ed as a neighbor.

is that ALL you moved with Scummy? Ahem!

Glad to see you are alive and well, Lavi!!

As far as getting out of jury duty it was the hen that got him out of it. pffffffffffftttt. Ingrate!

I live next door to the Ghet-to.

I have never seen so many police cars on a daily basis the entire time I've lived in Vegas until now.

On the first or second night here, SWMBO called me about 9PM as I was cleaning out the old place to tell me that Swenson was closed. Six Po-lice cars and two ambulii.

It is truly a diversified neighborhood:

-College Students
-Gangsta Wannabes
-Gangstas
-White Trash
-Tourists
-Me

you left out the friendly neighborhood hookers.


Every now and then when your life gets complicated and the weasels start closing in, the only cure is to load up on heinous chemicals and then drive like a bastard from Hollywood to Las Vegas ... with the music at top volume and at least a pint of ether.

Dedicated to the other side of Las Vegas, namely; the sprawling, mad, incoherent underpinnings of the world's favorite destination.

That, and the occasional ranting about nothing in particular.
