You need to do a better job of looking good for everyone, girl.

That was why my sister and I both had short hair--we didn't like our mom brushing it. I don't think it was ever past my shoulders until I was old enough to care for it myself. I was fine with it mostly. It wasn't like I didn't have fair warning. Even in high school and college when it was super long, my mom would ask to play around with my hair and I wouldn't let her.
My mom *says* she gave me fair warning, but I don't remember that at all.

She's always trying to get me to cut Nunu's hair, but Nunu wants it long, no matter how out of control it is at most times. So I let her keep it long <mimishrug>. I certainly don't want her to have the same feelings about me/my hair/my mother that I do!

I recently realized that Lulu has Beyonce hair and Nunu has Solange hair.

I think it depends very much on the judge and the jurisdiction. Judges have some leeway. But generally, questions were written down and went through the judge to make sure they were legitimate questions.

But there was other stuff FIJA was about, like telling jurors they have the legal right to use a different sentence than what was outlined by the judge, etc. It varies so much from state to state, but generally, I got the sense that judges like to keep a tight control on their courtrooms, and letting jurors act all rogue makes 'em nervous.

I remember reading that in many native american cultures, a "Jury of one's peers" Meant true peers: COusins, neighbors, people who grew up with you. Because who better than they know the kind of person you are, the temper you may have, the fights you get into?

Well Matilda, I hope you enjoy your lunch, whatever you decide.

I, on the other hand, will not. I got some thai (fried rice) and nowhere on the ingredients list is bean sprouts, but yet my lunch is full of them.

I can't stand bean spouts!!! They look like something a Klingon would eat.

Oh, Thai food! I am now craving Pad See Ew, though I will not be able to get any today.

I want to take the boys to dinner tonight, even though we're trying to save money because of the furloughs coming up. I just want to make sure that if my husband calls and says "come see Dziadzia right now" we can get over there right away.

Hmmm, maybe I'll just make Mickey Mouse pancakes or something for dinner :)

Lunch was homemade mac n cheese, very good stuff. With a pudding cup. I'm currently pissing off my boss by skipping an "ergonomis" seminar, but hey, I never respoded with an "i'll attend."

I should have gotten that. No bean sprouts!

I wish I could do pancakes for dinner. Lulu doesn't really like them, so it doesn't make sense. I'd just have to cook something else for her little picky butt.
:D

Fine. If you move wrong and hurt something you'll only have yourself to blame.

I'm thinking it's gotta be some type of liberal conspiracy. Keep people panicked and dependent on others and that would further the liberals' agenda.

Think about it....

Which state allows the jury to set the sentence? I thought that was teh judge's job.

If you are wearing wrist braces around the office or if you taledk at all about your hand problems and what teh doctor said, your boss is ticked because the ergonomics seminar is probably aimed at you.
