my brush with the law
well i've been on jury duty for the past few days and now i am actually a JUROR. i've stopped wearing my studded belt because the metal detectors at the courthouse are kind of a bitch. unfortunately, cameras are not allowed in the building - there are amazing views of the architectural details of the courts, the woolworth building, the municipal building and so on. it's a criminal case and i heard two witnesses testify today. but the cooler part is just being downtown in this GORGEOUS weather. i've been riding my ridiculous bike to court, and when we break for lunch i do a little curated creative cuisine. monday i ate at pho pasteur; barbecued beef on rice vermicelli noodles and a coke, total price: $5.75. tuesday i had a salad with grilled chicken and goat cheese at lucky strike, and today i had steak soft tacos with lime and a grapefruit jarritos at esquina - not only did i sit outside and enjoy the sunshine, they threw in a free slice of watermelon for dessert. bring on the evidence: my verdict? so far so good!
