Banana Chocolate Chip Muffins

I had an extremely busy week last week at TechWave, my company’s annual user conference in Vegas. While I do love Vegas, being there almost a full week is so very tiring.

Jury Duty 4/12/10 – 4/22/10. Yes, that’s exactly what the frame around the picture says. The past two weeks of my life were spent serving as alternate juror #1, and it was an experience that certainly was interesting. Sure, it took much too long, and sure, I didn’t even get to contribute to jury deliberation, but it gave me a first-hand look into our judicial system.
