Too bad I won't be here to hear it. I will be gone for the day. You are on your own, kiddoes.
It’s FRiday! Get up and take charge of the day.
I guess the prosecution’s case was fugacious.
A++ I have been fascinated by the trial. Yesterday, the prosecutor made a HUGE fool of himself.
I use Fugly as an adjective for weather....
‘...its Fugly out’...’what a fugly day’
Hot and Sticky, pretty much equals Fugly.
G’mornin’. Fugacious: I wish that were the case with O, but he lingers like a foul odor.
Oh what a night: I went to a Japanese brothel and treated myself to a fugacious, but as I recall, it ended much too soon.
The motto of the Knights Temporary Swordsmen...Few Gash Us! (fugacious), very cutting edge guys, you see....
Fugacious beach time has ended. Its raining anyway. Heading home now.
Oh that’s sad!
It is astounding how the prosecution has twisted everything, even the facts. Sadly I have no hope for Zimmerman - it is a florida jury....
It cant last forever.
always good to have the weekend to recuperate from the vaca before going back to work. This is my last day of work for awhile, we leave tuesday for Amelia Island but i am taking Monday off for preps. Did you have mostly nice days without rain for the beach?
Yes the weather was great. A couple sprinkles but nothing bad till yesterday afternoon.
Are you staying at the same place on Ameila Island?
We’d definitely do Va Beach again.
yes the conference is always at the ritz carlton. not a bad gig ; ) xshub and xsboy will be working some of the time. xsteen’s bf is going to join us for next weekend, so it will be nice to have him along.
glad you liked Va beach. I have never stayed there, we would often go for the day when the kids were little and we were in Williamsburg for the week. It is a nice beach. Did you like it better than NJ [where do you normally go?] xsteen’s bf’s family has a house at Ocean City NJ and it is apparently a very nice beach, not like the nasty OC, MD.
Va was more upscale and diverse. But its all the same stuff. In Wildwood all the shops are right on the boardwalk. In Va Beach all the hotels are on the boardwalk and its more serene along the boardwalk. But on the street side its the same shops and restaurants.
Wildwood was a lot of traditional family owned motels where this was tall ritzier hotels.
Off for the day-all the work I had was to spend a couple hours doing an estimate for some texture work-
It seems that our legal system
Has lost any rules that it had-
From congress to Florida trials
The whole thing has run mad
Congress rules like the Red Queen
And lawyers become more pugnacious-
In this version of Alice’s wonderland
Sparks of common sense are fugacious
Someone put on big boy pants,
And assume a responsible role-
There just aren’t any magic pills
To get them out of the rabbit hole...
I was amazed when I saw a part of the prosecution’s closing arguments on the news-the lawyer apparently yelled at the jury for most of his time-and his voice and attitude seemed really annoying, too...
Haven’t see even a minute of the trial, can’t stomach the idea of it. I’m
pessimistic about life these days so i would be shocked if he is acquitted.
I had a date who was fugaciously fugly.
I quit paying much attention to it awhile ago, except to hear about what transpired that day on the news-when I heard the recap of the yelling, though, it got my attention-I couldn’t believe the rudeness.
I don’t think for one minute that Zimmerman intended to kill anybody, for any reason-but I do think that neither of those young men were employing common sense at all that night-just running on adrenalin and whatever else goes through your mind in a dark place on a rainy night-and Martin may have been stoned, which likely altered his perception, as well. I also think the politicians and the LE people in Sanford need to shut up-they just make things worse and cloud the issue...
Opportunity can be fugacious
To seize it, one must be sagacious,
But to go for the ring
Some just hear the ka-ching,
Turning nasty & downright ungracious.
I was cooling off with a bottle of vitamin water after cutting grass, and heard frantic hissing and a bump-Midget girl had been sitting in the window over the sink, watching the bird feeder there-a raccoon climbed up to the outside of the window to get to the sunflower seeds in the feeder. Midget jumped, hissed, lost her footing and fell backwards into the sink.
While I was LMAO, she got back on the window sill, and when she saw the raccoon on the other side of the glass, she jumped in fright, hissed and fell into the sink again-she doesn’t seem to realize that critter can’t get to her...
You poor thang. A++
BDLR was a kook, not a prosecuting attorney during the closing. I am praying for George to be acquitted or to get a hung jury. Excellent poem A+++
I thoroughly enjoyed Virgina Beach. Went there twice for vacations. I liked it and Atlantic City. Both were fun, but I liked VB more. Guess the gambling wasn’t much of my thing. The dolphins were visible from the boardwalk at VB and from my hotel. Liked that.
A Florida jury let Casey Anthony walk to the chagrin of a nation.
A++ Sad that your last day was rain.....kind of depressing driving away in the rain I imagine.
Huh? LMAO A++
So true. A++
Yeah my daughter saw dolphins a couple times while we were swimming. Without my glasses i couldnt see anything.
Thank you-given the weird goings-on of the prosecution, the judge’s apparent bias, etc , I suspect that if Zimmerman gets convicted if just about anything, there will be an appeal-he also might sue a network or two for their edit of tapes...
Ok you smart people - what can the gov charge zimmerman with now? We all know they are going to - no way holder will let this guy live his life. I’m sure the parents will file civil charges but I doubt George Z has anything they can get so it will be like oj and they will just spend the rest of their lives attempting to get his lunch money. But the fed? What can they do and what is the burden of proof?
Well, the usual suspects are already howling to the Injustice dept to “look at it”-probably wanting them to say the attacker’s “civil rights” were violated in some magical way-but I think the mother’s motivation is to have her son make more money for her in death than he ever would have alive-after all, she has already gotten a big settlement from the HOA of the condo complex.
I heard somewhere months ago that she was selling mementos of st Travon online-I don’t know if that is true, but I’m guessing she is more interested in finding more deep pockets to raid, if she can. She supposedly didn’t really bring the kid up for years-the stepmother did. She has a hard and calculating look about her-God forgive me if I’m wrong, but I don’t buy her stoic, grieving mommy act.
Just guessing, but it sounds as though Zimmerman will spike the ball and do some suing of his own-and rightly so-his civil rights might have been violated, after all-isn’t calling someone “creepy ass cracker” profiling? And wasn’t the judge showing racial bias when she allowed his school records to be brought into evidence, but not Travon’s-like his suspensions, etc? And his social media postings about gangbanger crap like guns, fighting, racist remarks, weed and possibly stolen jewelry? All that and more will be brought out at last if civil suits get started on either side, and anyone not impressed with the dialog of an innocent, angelic “child” of 17 with skittles and tea-who happened to be stoned-will be delighted to see it..
And don’t forget the TV networks and their race-based edits, worst of all-they have probably endangered Zimmerman’s life, and they have certainly ruined it insofar as finding work. I’d file that suit right after going to the ACLU, if it were me. Hell, if I could, I’d sue Holder’s bunch for meddling in a state’s business without a shred of real evidence...
That’s my rant...
Try thinking about baseball.
In fairness, the reporting was she could no longer handle the kid, and sent him off to his father. You can see why that knowledge is...suppressed.
Amd yes, they Trademarked “Justice” .check google images.
The reason information like that was “suppressed” is because it doesn’t look good for the mother-a mother who can’t handle her kid any more probably never handled the kid well-kids do not suddenly metamorphose into Frankenstein’s monster overnight. I am a mom myself, but I have little sympathy for that one...
Pardon me for being little ms case manager, but-
When kids are unmanageable-especially as teens-it is likely because they have not been given boundaries and taught proper behaviors by one or both parents from a very early age-it is also more common in homes headed by a single parent, like it or not.
If Trayvon’s mother would have pursued professional family counseling-instead of sending her son away-as diligently as she pursued lawsuits and other income options, her son might be alive today.
But I digress...
The Fugs rule.
I need to step out, to get some Coca Cola, and Saran Wrap, before the goddess from the Lower east side gets here.
