civic duty fail

I accidentally missed jury duty yesterday. This was my first jury summons ever and I've known about it for 6 weeks. I'd notified my employer and put it on my calendar at work. Unfortunately, I had it on the calendar for today and it was yesterday.
I'm not sure how I went 6 weeks continuing to read the date wrong, but I did. Since they don't provide any phone number with a live person or even a voice mail, I just wrote them back with an explanation and the card to request to be rescheduled. The card says very specifically that intentionally not appearing can be a fine or jail time! I promise I'm not intentionally absentminded. ;)

In other news, today is my last day of being 25. We have reservations at The Golden Beetle tomorrow night and I'm very excited to try it.
