Well now more parts of the puzzle are falling in as to why
women find me sexy ... must be in part due to my borderline dyslexia
I sensed it from the get-go. Not severe in any form. I thought it could be ADHD or mild dyslexia.
It doesn't mean people aren't intelligent although it can affect IQ scores.

My guy was very intuitive about me. He knew what I wanted it before I thought about about it.
The only thing I disliked is he wouldn't let me always use him like I wanted to sexually. He would make me lie by him and be good. Drove me crazy. We had fun in and out of bed.

I have my hair in braids by the way. No, I'm not Wednesday Addams. My present guy is a non-Spanish guy who craves me like Gomez craves Morticia. We're plotting what we will do in bed a little later. I have my ideas and he has his. Then, later, my Cali guy will call me. It's complicated.

Well endowed means consistent multiple o's and a shining glow that takes a week to wear off and knowing when to pull back so it doesn't go from pleasure to pain. No tape measurers needed.

Oh, so according to above posts, you have borderline dyslexia and borderline attention deficit.

The Jodi Arias trial appears to be a scripted, cheap copycat version of the Jane Andrews' trial, the Duchess of York's former aide who was charged and convicted for the murder of her boyfriend, playboy millionaire Tom Cressman, he was stabbed and bludgeoned to death with a cricket bat in 2000.

I don't ever know if you guys are talking about Lemony Snicket
or about the woman who could eat a pound cake in under two minutes on
the Practical Magic movie. I doubt Lego has seen either since he claims to be a guy and does not have any kids at home and hasn't for a long time.

LG, I prefer your succint, perceptive take, on the obscene displays of media coverage and the crowd's excitement.
Some of the author's phrases are crude and unnecessary. Imo, that reflects a lack of class, and command of the English language.
I agreed with the jist of it.
You're an excellent writer, and I enjoy reading your comments :)

Amid many trials, a frenzy over Jodi Arias

Sex, violence and intrigue were the recipe for the nation's story of the moment.

When you read her statements, her twisted belief that God will find her innocent, maybe she thinks she did him a favor by sending him to Heaven now, and she took it into her own hands to atone him... now she thinks she will be with him once she dies.
A twisted perverse mind.

Jodi Arias In Her Own Words

The jury in Arizona that convicted Jodi Arias of murder is back in court Thursday and because their work isn’t done. They aren’t supposed to be paying attention to any media coverage of the case, including Arias’ post-verdict interview.

FOX News Radio’s Jessica Rosenthal reports:

Disgusting. Stabbing and shooting him wasn't enough. Even after death she continues to mentally slay him.
Perhaps she wanted to be like Ethan Hawke's character in taking lives.

In one version, I could have sworn Ethan's character decapitated his mother and held her head up like a trophy. In another, she was on the floor of the elevator with blood all around.

Or maybe she liked movies like "Angel Heart" or something like that. That movie was so evil I think I got up and left.

I don't believe that is what she intended to say when she gave the interview.

In one of her diary entries Jodi wrote (paraphrasing), "he makes me feel beautiful, he makes me feel miserable, he makes me happy, he makes me sick"...It is quite obvious that her relationship with Travis was an emotional roller coaster. Contrary to the media reports on the trial, there was clear evidence of his psychological and emotional abuse of Jodi.

The violence of the crime (the overkill) was a catharsis, a purging of anger and other negative pent-up emotions that were triggered by something that Travis did or said to her. It has nothing to do with atonement, it was a crime of passion.

The case was grossly overcharged, she should have been charged with second degree murder, and manslaughter as a lesser included offense.

Get a clue. Her defense filed paper work to take DP off the table and the judge said no.

Already convicted. On to sentencing. Stop playing the would have, could have, should have game. It's annoying.
