This is a follow-up to my previous journal. For those who are wondering what happened to me on May 8th, I had jury duty over in Maywood, the same courthouse that I went to two years ago. When I went back in May of 2017, the case was settled, and I got to go home after two hours. This past Wednesday, however, was different. I was called into the courtroom along with nearly sixty others. In groups of fourteen, potential jurors were called, interviewed, and determined whether or not they would be a juror in a criminal case where the defendant was accused of domestic battery yet pled not guilty. After two groups, neither of which included me, were called up, the remaining jurors got to go home, much to my relief. Had I been chosen, I would not have been allowed to say anything until after the trial was finished, which would've been finished the following morning at the latest according to the judge.

The following evening, however, was rough. I stayed home all day back on May 9th because there was an auction for something on eBay I wanted to try for - a Surprise wedge used on Wheel of Fortune back in the late 90s. As the auction drew to a close, I tried to put in a bid, but a tense bidding war between other bidders kept all of my bids from being entered (they were just too little too low). In the end, the wedge was sold to someone else for over $600. Although I was disappointed that I didn't get it, I took comfort in the fact that I tried.

The disappointments, however, continued on into the following day, May 10th. As I had to work that day, I spent the morning trying to set the VCR into recording the 7000th syndicated episode of Wheel of Fortune that evening. Despite some setbacks, I managed to set it all up, but going into work, I was left to worry whether or not the recording would happen let alone go without problems. A series of mishaps and insults at work didn't help how I felt; I was left to wonder if the mishaps and insults were a bad omen telling me that "yesterday was bad, today will be worse," something I painfully remember was how late 2010 into early 2011 was for me. That was something I did not want to go back to. Thankfully, the episode taped properly. Although the Bonus Round wasn't won, everyone won something that evening. One contestant in particular had no money going into the final leg of the game, but he ended up finishing in second place with a very impressive all-cash total of $20,100. Everything associated with Wheel's 7000th episode ended up being what were perhaps the only things that went well for me Friday evening. :phew:

Nonetheless, I had a very stressful six-day work week that ended just a couple hours ago as I type this up. It did not go by quickly thanks to it being so stressful. Even so, while I was at work on Saturday, the Japanese PlayStation controller I mentioned in my previous journal arrived, with someone home to pick it up. For those who follow me over at Instagram, where I'm known as germanname1990, you'll probably know what it is. it's a very unique controller known as the Takara Roulette controller, made for only one game - a Jinsei game (Jinsei is what The Game of Life is known as in Japan) made for the first PlayStation, although the game (which I don't have) will also work on a PlayStation 2. Note the game (and possibly controller) will work only with a Japanese PlayStation 1 or 2.

I have two days off that I certainly plan to enjoy. Thursday's plans include me getting a haircut, getting the next issue of IDW's Sonic comics (I recently got all three covers of the annuals that were released recently), and finishing paying off in full the preorders to Team Sonic Racing which will be out this Tuesday, May 21st! I have to work on Tuesday, but I hope to get the game either then or my next off day. I'm so excited to get the game for the PS4 and the Switch! :excited:

There's also something that Back in the Game is holding for me via layaway, I plan to get that Friday evening.

In addition, I finished work on the last of the drawings for May 20th. All I have to do is scan and enhance that drawing.

Finally, the pre-order campaign for the Polymega gaming system has started. I'm planning on getting the base system and one of the four modules for it at some point next week, probably this Sunday. The module I plan to get, as you can imagine, is the Mega module which will allow me to play cartridge games SEGA Genesis, Mega Drive, and 32X.

The stress is finally gone, at least for now. All I have to do now is enjoy the next two days I have at my disposal.

Hobbies:
Game Shows (esp. Wheel of Fortune)
Video Games (esp. Sonic The Hedgehog)
True Stories (Truth really is stranger than fiction, which is why I find it compelling)
Cars (esp. early 1990s Dodge Viper RT-10 and Saturn Sky)
Airplanes (esp. Commercial Jetliners)
Ships (esp. Ocean Liners and Cruise Ships)
Classic Rock (esp. Boston and Bon Jovi, the latter who by the way is exactly 28 years older than I am)

Marital Status: Single (and I'm keeping it that way)

Love Life: Despite my marital status preference, my love life consists of Sonia, Amy, Cosmo, Zooey, Tikal, Jani-Ca, and the other heroines from the Sonic series as well as my Sonic OC gals (They all feel like family to me).

What I don't like: Racism, misogyny, misandry (seriously, there's WAY too much of that), or bias. I will not tolerate sayings or actions that state that there are such things as superior/better/weaker races or gender. They're not fair! Everyone's equal, plain and simple. Now if you feel like you're on the minority side (or have even been victimized) when it comes to stuff like this, I'll be more than happy to do what I can to help you out with that. Besides, I like sticking up for the underdog.

Current Residence: Southwest Side of Chicago (Go Blackhawks! Go White Sox!)
Favourite genre of music: 70s & 80s Rock
Operating System: Windows 7 and 10
MP3 player of choice: 64GB iPod Touch
Favourite cartoon characters: Ladies from most Sonic, Disney, and Warner Bros. series
How I feel about others: I feel like all else's lives matter more than mine, but that's one reason why I help them.

How I feel about Sonic: If others hate Sonic, fine, yeah, whatever the [BLEEP], but if they try to make me hate Sonic, :iconnogoodplz:.
