On my way home yesterday, I heard a news report that Cherry/James were closed around 9th Street (possibly an eviction related to the expansion of Harborview Medical Center), so I figured Worthy Opponent was likely to not make it home in time to eat before we went to a movie ... and I wasn't really in the mood for watching a war flick ("From Here to Eternity," showing this week at the Varsity). So instead we stayed home (once he finally showed up, an hour after leaving Fremont) and ate ham and macaroni and cheese (perfect winter food), then did responsible homeowner things like make flan (using the extra half and half from Thanksgiving) and set up the sparkly Christmas tree (newly arrived from Ebay). (It was all in keeping with our philosophies of how to take care of the house - "I'll cook/garden!" "I'll build something!")

Finally at 10 PM we sat down for a game of Puerto Rico - it was really a little too late, but I figured it would all be over in forty-five minutes or so. It was a real knock-down, drag-out battle to the finish - a tie, broken by the money I earned from my factory. How sweet it was, given that he had two large buildings and I only had one! I even beat him on shipping although he had corn to start - I went and got myself a lot of corn so he wouldn't get too far ahead of me. At 61 to 61, we both obviously played well. I'm sure ready for Wednesday's match against Matt!

Just got word my court date from the attack in August has been set for January 22. I hope they don't try to use my LJ for evidence. How embarassing that would be! (And I feel just a little bit sweaty thinking about what happened, and talking about it in front of her and a whole room full of people, and I think my stomach is starting to hurt. Time to plunge into work.)

LJ as evidence
Why would they use your LJ as evidence? Have you told them about it or something?

Re: LJ as evidence
This PI called me from the atty representing the Crazy Chick and asked me exactly what she had said to me before she attacked me. Then I said, "Hold on, let's see if I can figure it out ..." and he said, "Oh, do you have a diary or something?" And I said, "No, no, I was just seeing if I'd kept notes on it." I realized at the time they might want to use it as evidence and I didn't want them to. So they don't know about it, but if he's smart he could have me pressed on the witness stand for information. I don't think my blog entry that day is very flattering in terms of my response. But I realized, I've put up with a lot of abuse in the past and I'm very big on repressing my responses unless I'm literally smashed down so far I'm lying on my back and can't get up.

Re: LJ as evidence
Of course I was on the computer looking on my blog at the time. But I wasn't obliged to tell him. I'm very frustrated that she didn't plea bargain her way out of a trial - I really don't want to have to go through with this. It's hard for my stomach - where I hide all the things I don't want to think about.
