I've seen LA Guy's posts where he uses the word "bang" in regards to sex. He must be some pimple-ridden teen who is home schooled and socially awkward. "Edith" is the Mary Kay Letourneau type thinking her LA "Villi" is so talented and that he and she will travel the world together. I think
Edith aka Mary Kay (she acts like a b*tchy school teacher) just wants to boss him around.
He will be sitting down to urinate in no time. Wait...he already does!
You can be Funny

Since you are such a keen social observer, you must have heard of Howard Stern (Bang, Bang, Bang)....well beyond his teen age years...lol

Mary Kay Letourneau was a fox. Men young and old liked her. She had a demure look. Villi's Samoan's mom even approved...lol

In my own mind :)
I love to read and learn from experts whenever possible.
I wasn't a A student, however, I do know how to research most topics, and navigate the web :)
I'm retired from AT&T; a young retiree. Another amazing blessing. They closed my office.
Anyway, many professionals in my family tree, so I've enjoyed exposure to a lot of different things.
Love my life.
Thanks for sharing. I correct myself. A b * t chy telephone employee, not a teacher.

Actually, this bungalow has the wiiiiide porch, with a side porch. It's on a 120'x50' lot, one of a few that has'n been split up. I got it for 120k, vey lucky because it was the 3rd home I saw, and was only DOM 2-3 days. The yard was neglected; the previous owners lost it in a foreclosure after they did some remodeling... sad for the to lose it.
3 Arch bay was so beautiful. Their home had 3 stories with floor to ceiling windows on most levels. You could lay/lie in bed and see the white surf and hear the waves hit. OM it was nice. Simple furnishings, clean, light colors.
Some places in Sac. are so over-run w/undesirables, especially blacks from the bay who think they now own it... I had to get out. The quiet pockets of Sac. are now sandwiched by old apts. and the crime is so bad.

You can't even got to a low end place like Sweet Tomatoes for $10.00 here. Not that it matters, but I tip even at buffets which I only agree to go to because some can't afford real restaurants. Places like Luby's have a cafeteria line, but they also have servers and I also tip those. Not my favorite place to eat, but I will sometimes bend if the rest of the crowd wants to go. We have also gone out in large groups where the gratuity is included, but it never hurts to leave a little extra.

Now my spouse doubles the tax and that is how he tips. I don't agree.

JA's diet does not bode well for her celly,
but she is getting protein.

Taylor Swift just streaming, she must be a
size One. Nice, like her cool cut and new
look. I would date her.

Also, Lisa Lieu, she was so damn hot in
Kill Bill. I would date her.

Chris Brown just made an emergency landing.

This cool Brother who rescued the girls is a

man. In an ironic sense, people in the hood

Agree

It's irritating when with friends, when
they double the tax thing. Hell,
I just give 20% on the amount.

Was just arranging about $300 in various
denominations, since I can be lazy and
let it accumulate. Keepking some One's,
since my friends never seem to have the
right change when splitting a bill or
they put it on their card. I usually end up
overpaying, since some give low gratuities.

Usually keep at least a thou in cash, might
need a massage...lol

Trying to think of Asian-themed movies

The Ramen Girl (it's funny when the Japanese women think tiny Britney Murphy has long legs)

Lost in Translation

The Geisha Memoirs

The Joy Luck Club

that's all that comes to mind pre-coffee

Lucy Liu - Ecks vs. Sever

Just slumming until those lazy slugs get to the courthouse at 10 a.m.
Arizona time. I guess they get everything done so they don't have to take
days off during deliberation. The late start tells me they won't probably get
to a verdict today. Nancy Grace said she would rather have a mistrial and start over than let her go for a lesser charge/acquittal which would mean jurors who wanted murder 1 or m2 would be caving just to reach a verdict.

Tried to arrange some of yesterday to catch some live testimony: Jodi did well in response to most questions, except for a sly smile after telling Martinez that she had memory problems when men like him and Travis yelled at her. OK, that some a good comeback, but it would have been better if she had NOT smiled, which appeared as if she was congratulating herself for her good answer.
<quoted text>
You see things most do not get. The sly smile spoke legions as to her personality and resolve. It coud endear some jurors on her side and harden the others.
As to objections, Asked and Answered, one my favorites. My GF
does not like it when I use it with her, nor just "next question".
Defense not opting for the "Arguementative" objection, why
when Martinez is a Gift Horse.. Martinez also trying to tesitfy, he loves to lead ... lol
Jody is highly intelligent, about 130 IQ .. what's you take on this. Admirable command of English, despite 11th grade education.
Nurmi says a little over 100 IQ overall
She got a Roget's Thesaurus to study for the verbal part.

She tries to use words to impress people. She will use a word like edify often and then try to
use de-edify which I don't believe is a word. She thinks she is sly correcting Juan Martinez, but she could be sitting on death row or highlighting her Roget's Thesaurus while in jail for anywhere from 10 years to life to Death Row. She writes hateful tweets, taunting Juan Martinez and Nancy Grace via her former cellmate affectionately called Donutvan.

I think you got confused. Fairly certain Juan's IQ is in the 130 range or higher. Even when he acts like he is not paying attention to Shamu (dresses feminine) and Squeaky, he is taking in every word to use against them later.

I can not imagine what the hold up would be. I heard that they are not reviewing evidence.
I'm betting that there are some who want to go Murder 2 so the judge will have to decide and they
will be free to go. Maximum time 22 years with Murder 2. In my mind, that is not enough time.
Of course, something always beats nothing.
if she gets max 22yrs she will only serve about 11 which she almost has done 5yrs & she is having the time of her life in jail-more friends & attention then she ever had, she doesn't have to work, thousands of dollars in her account, unlimited commisary & phone, people are selling her art for her, she has a secretary for tweeting, and she is winning singing contests! I won't be satisfied with that penalty. She needs to suffer not be rewarded for slaughtering a good man. If she ever gets out - she will not be scared she will be a bigger monster then before.

She probably lives in Citrus Heights or downtown Sacto. I hope she's a Latina or Asian.LOL
My vote is Citrus Heights, but she only paid $120,000, so it is probably a fancy mobile home or manufactured housing. I'll bet she has one of those cheap benches you put together on her porch
and a hillbilly wreath on the front door that says Welcome.

I am hoping it is Murder 1 and then go from there. She will probably get a migraine and they will wait until tomorrow. Or maybe she will have diarrhea. Slap a Depends on her, give her some migraine meds, borrow Granny's wheelchair and get this done!!!

After being in jail with other felons, she has learned more about how to do this again and get away with it. I do NOT believe she would not reoffend. She has gotten away with so much already. She may have had someone else break into her grandma's so she could say she didn't do it. She would probably be guilty of conspiracy to commit murder. She would find some dumb, easily led people to do her dirty work.

I have no doubt she would have a HIT LIST.
