I'm freaking terrified....

Okay, at 7:00 a.m. this morning Gary and I are headed for court in the State of New Jersey to fight the ticket he got for speeding six weeks ago when we went to see Julie and Eric play a gig at the Asbury Lanes.

I am freaking terrified.

I know we are innocent - we had our Jeep on cruise control at 65 mph.

Gary has been driving for over thirty years and has never gotten a speeding ticket. In my former life, I worked as a personal injury paralegal for two decades and looked at horrible automobile crash photographs on a daily basis. There is just no way we are guilty.

So we are going up against "The Man" right before Christmas...I'm afraid of everything from thousands of dollars worth of fines, ending up in jail, or having a major panic attack in the courtroom and ending up in the emergency room.

Wish us luck.

I will be back later to report on what happened, and also, I've gotten some really incredible supportive and funny mail lately, some to do with the Weblog awards, some from pals who are emailing their yearly Christmas letters, and some that are just plain hilarious having to do with a multitude of things. So I'm really looking forward to posting excerpts and sharing them.

Assuming I'm not in jail.

Or in the hospital.

So in the meantime, here's the dreaded case I come back home from court a broken woman and destitute (due to paying the fines) right before Christmas, at least let me have a lock on fifth place in the Best of Blog Awards. So please do the daily click thing and vote for me as best diarist. Okay? Okay!

The 2006 Weblog Awards

Later...I hope,
