See You in Court

When I arrived in Georgia yesterday at 6:10 am, I believed I would be meeting my friend, Tricia, at a radio station to listen to a show she does every weekday morning.  Unfortunately, I didn’t realize that I would need to drive a million hours to the town and I would miss her show. Very sad. So as I drove to Northeast Jesus, Georgia, Tricia sent me a text that she was going to have to be in court to finish up a hearing from the day before.

Cool!  I haven’t seen Tricia in court since law school and kind of miss going to court myself since leaving private practice over a year ago.  So I drove straight here:

It’s kind of a weird courthouse that looks like a jail.  See those skinny windows at the top of the picture?  Totally jail-like windows.  Scary.

Tricia was in the middle of a child custody hearing that was actually pretty interesting (there was a lot of talk about poop…always an interesting topic).  I practiced family law for about a year and a half so I kind of knew what was going on.

The hearing ended taking up THE ENTIRE DAY.  I didn’t really mind and just used the time to multitask on a few other tasks.  First, I touched up my nail polish.  Recently I’ve seen the multi-color polish thing going on and decided to mix it up a bit.

I have Essie’s “Merino Cool” on three fingers and then “California Coral” on my index finger.  I don’t really know if I like it, but it was kind of fun…until this happened.

I got a f*cking drop of “California Coral” on my damn dress!  Really.  I probably should have let it dry and then picked the glob off, but no, I tried to wipe if off and ended up smearing it in.  Anyone have any ideas on how to get that sh*t out of my dress?  Any help is appreciated.  Whatever.

After that happened I decided I needed a break from the courtroom action and went outside to check out this kick-ass city (town?).  In front of the courthouse you can find this gazebo:

And a little history of Habersham County.

I hope you all read that, it’s fascinating.  Just kidding, I didn’t read it and I have no idea what it says.  I’m thinking it’s some sort of history or something.  But this is totally small town sh*t, right?

Then I noticed this:

This little thing was to the very right of the gazebo.

What the f*ck does “PEANUT” mean?  I don’t understand it.  It started to scare me and by this point I was sweating so much from the humidity that I had to go back inside.

I spent the remainder of the day in court watching Tricia go balls to the wall when cross-examining witnesses.  Oh and I also used the time to read a bit.

Isn’t that cover weird?  You can barely read it…and it’s not The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo.  It’s a library book, that’s why that cover is totally messed up.  I’m actually on the third book of the Stieg Larsson series:

Are you shocked that I read books?  I am too (and there aren’t even pictures in this book!).

    You don’t have to read to be a lawyer. My estate hearing attorney was so dumb; that I’m convinced he didn’t read any books to get through law school…So he must’ve cheated on the California Bar Exam!

    I’m on the third one too. It’s been a slower read for me than the first two for some reason…

    I’m laughing so hard! First, I’m so sorry you had to sit in court all day. It sucked! Second, and the reason why I’m laughing, that Peanut truck cracks me up! It waters all the City’s flowers and help with weeding and pruning. There are 2 trucks in the City- the second one has been incarnated as “Tulip”. I’m sorry you missed it.

    You are such a multi tasker……mixing up the colors on your fingernails.
    Peanut. What does it mean?!?

  5. I just read on a blog that Barbasol shaving cream gets nail polish out of carpets, so maybe it would work on a dress?

    I think I would take the dress to the dry cleaners and have them try to remove the nail polish. Or, if you have balls, 🙂 you can try dabbing acetone or nail polish on it, but I’m afraid it might discolor your dress.

    OMG, I just finished the Steig Larsson series last night, all I can say is WOW it was an incredible read
