(CW: CSA) Josh & Anna 44 - Fate in the hands of the jury

Recommended Posts

Other more important parts of the trial aside (like, you know, the evidence), Gelfand isn't striking me as a particularly good speaker (or, I guess speech-writer, since we are missing the theatrical and oral parts of his statements). I know this was a valid and legal defense strategy, and necessarily week because Josh can't shut up, but so many parts of his speech strike me as flat...

I feel like there could have been way better spin or oratory than what Gelfand brought to the table.

It would help if Gelfand at least tried to believe his own defense theory.

I got a comment in after the new thread announcement,  now that deserves chili cheese fries or whatever was being discussed.  

I beat the system!  🤣

I know this is stupid but I'm already nervous that the jury is taking so long.

The jury isn't taking that long. It was 12:15 when they started right? It is about 2:25 Arkansas time.

I am reassuring myself with the thought that probably an hour of the time in deliberation so far has actually been a lunch break…

If he could believe it he wouldn't be smart enough to be a lawyer.  Seriously, he had nothing to work with.

Didn’t they leave around lunchtime?  They probably ate before deliberating.  I don’t think we need to worry yet.

They are probably having lunch during this time as well.

It's too early for wine, but I have toasted coconut chocolate chip ice cream in the freezer.   Anyone care to join me?

I’ll join if I can have my Ben and Jerry’s Netflix and Chill!

My son just sent me an update on Scott Peterson resentencing and I was like, waiting for Josh Duggar jury. 

He is now in that rabbit hole.

they need to wrap this up now. I'm supposed to be studying for finals but this is what's taking up the space in my brain. DAMMIT!

You realize in this case the system is me, right?  :)

      Last day of vacation tomorrow. All hell breaks loose again Tuesday. I figure I'll sleep somewhere around spring break, if I'm lucky. If not, it'll be the end of May. Not sure what this summer will hold for school and teaching...guess I'll find out!

      Today I took my daughter and her best friend to San Francisco and the highlight of our trip was meeting a leash-trained cat named Dotty Parton on the city bus. It was an amazing day!

      If you're in the massive winter storm in the eastern US, stay safe! We're cuddled up watching our expected 12-15 inches of snow fall. ❄️ ❄️❄️😳

      Book recommendation: Mary Jane, by Jessica Anya Blau. An awesome coming-of-age story of a teen who grew up in an uptight, ultra conservative Christian family discovering freedom and joy when working as a nanny for a free-spirited family. Best of all? Mary Jane’s last name is Dillard.

      Thanks to the menopause, I'm a sleep deprived hag.  Night sweats can do one!  Am waiting for a consultation with the GP for some HRT.

      I just got a Christmas card in the post from my grandparents. They’re not the forgetful type, so Royal Mail must be really fucked right now.

      I hate writing syllabi. Have to have the whole semester done by class time Tuesday (previous teacher did not write a syllabus). Also have to have their research paper assignment written up too. That'll be due around week 14 so I have time to read/grade them. Also have to refresh my own skills in a few areas. Oh well, at least they're paying me quite well for this.
