Growing Up Little

A woman exploring the world of BDSM and sharing what she discovers…

Jodi Arias complains about her lawyer???

Wow… the girl has nerve.

Jodi Arias submitted a handwritten, 15 page motion to the court, explaining why she wants to fire her lawyer, Kirk Nurmi (who I might add, is paid for by the tax payers!).  Talk about ungrateful.  Considering the circumstances and evidence in her case – I’m surprised that either lawyer was even ABLE to keep a straight face presenting her argument to the court.

Smug, ungrateful, entitled bitch... aka Jodi Arias

Smug, ungrateful, entitled bitch… aka Jodi Arias

Reading through the motion… I had several jaw dropping moments… shocked at the nerve she has… for example:

  • At the beginning of the 15 page motion, she complains that she has not spoken, seen, nor had any communication with Kirk Nurmi since May 23, 2013.  It’s not until the end of the motion that she mention it is HER that is refusing to see HIM.  He has attempted to visit her twice since May and she has refused his visit both times.  So… whose fault is THAT Jodi?  Are you just too busy in jail?  Perhaps starting that recycling project?  Or maybe you were busy teaching other inmates Spanish in order to make time for a visit from your lawyer, who you complain doesn’t communicate with you?  Last time I checked… communication takes two people.  Just saying.
  • She states that it is the attorney’s duty to “maintain close contact with the client” but I can only imagine the ‘service’ that Jodi expected to receive.  He DOES have other clients Jodi… and his world does NOT revolve around you… like you expect it to.
Everyone deserves a defense (yes, even her)... but for her to complain about the representation she received?  Ignorant.

Everyone deserves a defense (yes, even her)… but for her to complain about the representation she received? Ignorant.

  • She complains that his secretary was instructed to hang up on her if she called and he was not in the office.  I would be curious to know how many times she was calling his office – I have a sneaking suspicion that it may have been incredibly excessive.  Each of those phone calls would be charged to the people footing her legal bill… the tax payers… but what would she care.  She’s not footing the legal bill for the crime she committed.
  • She complains that Kirk didn’t track down leads she provided for her case.  I can only imagine the goose chases she had sent him on!  I read that as:  Kirk didn’t fall for all her crazy lies.
  • She complains she can’t trust Kirk.  Um… what kind of irony is that??!!!   LMFAO!
  • Here’s a quote from the motion that shows just how out of touch Jodi truly is:  Kirk Nurmi has little to no tolerance for my emotional and psychological shortcomings.  I hate to break it to her but… MOST PEOPLE WOULDN’T!
  • She complains that Kirk doesn’t remember things and she thinks he might have a ‘selective memory’.  I wonder if Kirk has ever butchered another human being by stabbing him, slitting his throat from ear to ear and then shooting him in the head and then forgot THAT!  Whose memory is selective Jodi?
Awww... Jodi isn't happy... Poor Jodi... NOT.

Awww… Jodi isn’t happy… Poor Jodi… NOT.

I could go on… but the more I write, the angrier I get… knowing that MILLIONS of dollars will be spent for her legal defense and she is such an ungrateful and entitled bitch.

If you want to see the handwritten motion and read it yourself… the entire document can be found HERE.

What do you guys think?


Jodi Arias – What a C*nt!

Okay – it takes a lot for me to use the ‘C’ word… and technically I’m not using it because of that little * but…  Jodi Arias – What a Cunt!

Oops… forgot to use the star *!  My bad!

She 'looks' so fucking normal!

She ‘looks’ so fucking normal!

I have been following the Jodi Arias trial… I have a DVR… so I can actually not miss any testimony and I admit… I have missed very little of it.  At first I watched the ‘Nancy Grace’ and ‘Jane Velez-Mitchell’ type shows but I gave those up after a while.  For two reasons… one I couldn’t keep up (I swear I DO have a life!)  AND I was finding that the information they were sometimes ‘reporting’ wasn’t exactly accurate and that bothered me.  I didn’t want the wrong info… I wanted it as first hand as possible.

Tonight, I went on an internet site that had a copy of court documents that Jodi’s lawyers filed back in 2011 (way before the trial).  This document shows that Jodi wanted to plead guilty to second degree murder and when the State ignored her offer… Jodi then mailed the State a letter, reminding the State of all the collateral damage that would be caused if this case went to trial.  She claimed marriages would be affected because of Travis Alexander’s relations with other women, standings in the religious communities would be affected, personal friendships would be affected and most of all the very poignant and cherished memories of Mr. Alexander would be tarnished.

Travis as a little boy.

Travis as a little boy.

I am SO pleased to learn that the State wrote her BACK a letter and advised HER that resolving this case via a plea to second degree murder was not possible and they didn’t come back with ANY proposals or counter-offers at all.  Looks like that was a big FUCK YOU to Jodi!!!  

They were going for first degree and they were going for the death penalty.

Wonder if she'll be so smug at the end of the trial?

Wonder if she’ll be so smug at the end of the trial?

It really became clear to me… reading that court document, that Jodi was holding his family hostage, after she brutally murdered their brother.  She was threatening to tarnish Travis Alexander publicly (even to the point of claiming he was a pedophile, of which there is not a single shred of evidence) and others surrounding him as well.  Now… I’m NOT saying that Travis Alexander was a Saint in all this… he wasn’t.  Did he treat Jodi like a whore?  Yes.  Did he use her for sex?  Yes.  Did he realize he was dealing with a person who wasn’t playing with a full deck of cards but continued to play with her anyway?  I think so.  But did he deserve to be slaughtered by Jodi for it?  Did he deserve Jodi planning and manipulating before, during and after his savage murder?  Absolutely not.

The family of Travis Alexander… those two sisters, the brother, the brother-in-law, they all deserve MEDALS.  I can NOT even imagine the emotional torment and stress that not only his death by murder caused them but all the emotional harm they have suffered from Jodi Arias AFTER she killed him.  It is beyond disgusting.  Talk about having no remorse.  I don’t know if I would have enough strength to sit in that courtroom and listen to what they have had to… day after day after day.

Alexander Family in court

There is a site… I will post a link… that people can donate money to the family of Travis Alexander.  They have travelled from their own homes, staying in hotels, not been able to work during this entire process.  They are obviously having an intense amount of financial strain.  It should also be noted, that it was NOT the family that requested this fund be set up.  It was someone who knew the financial hardships they are occurring and knew that people would gladly donate money to help this family out.  (Travis Alexander Legacy Fund)

While his family suffers yet again… Jodi sits there with her paid for by the tax payers defense lawyers (note the multiple on the word lawyer) and is housed and fed, all courtesy of the State.  This while Jodi sells her ‘artwork’ for thousands of dollars.  I wonder if she realizes (or even cares) that the people who are buying her artwork… are buying it hoping the value of their ‘investment’ will go up when they DO eventually convict her and put her to death.

I have donated to the Travis Alexander Legacy Fund because I have watched this trial and I have seen the siblings of Travis Alexander and how THEY have suffered… how they have listened to Jodi Arias ‘explain’ for her 18 days on the witness stand, how she was ‘abused’ by Travis and her story of self-defense (with the 9 stab wounds in his BACK, a total of 29 total stab wounds, a slashed throat and a gun shot to the head).  She only remembers the gunshot wound though… cause ‘the fog rolled in’ after that.  She can’t remember stabbing him… or any of that.

From Support Travis Alexander’s Family Facebook page.

The medical examiner has testified that there was no medical science he knew of that Travis could have suffered that gunshot wound to the head FIRST, like Jodi claims.  He would have been incapacitated.  Jodi claims that the gunshot wound ‘made him mad’ and he said ‘Fucking going to kill you BITCH’ and that’s when the memories stopped for Jodi.  This of course, gave her the “out” of having to explain ALL the other injuries that happened and HOW they happened.  Where was the knife?  Must have been pretty damn handy… cause Travis went from standing up in the shower looking pretty damn fine to bleeding and in all likelihood dead – all within 62 seconds, as the photos show.

So… after seeing that court document, I felt I had to rant about the whole thing.

Please consider donating to the Travis Alexander Legacy Fund and reblogging this to spread the word.

Wishing peace to the family and friends of Travis Alexander.

Jodi Arias, in the news, making fashion statements???

Jodi Arias… dangerous psychopath…

brunch for every meal

While trying to find a live-stream of the Jodi Arias trial on my computer so I could multi-task packing for LA and enjoying the exploitation of a murder victim and his family, I stumbled upon this little nugget:

jodiWell, well, well, looks like even female murderers aren’t immune to objectification.

Psychopaths – Fascinating Aren’t They?


Psychopathy is a personality disorder characterized by an abnormal lack of empathy combined with strongly amoral conduct, masked by an ability to appear outwardly normal.

“When you encounter one, they will at first seem overly cooperative and friendly towards you. Meanwhile, they are sizing you up, noting every detail; your physical, intellectual and moral capabilities, while trying to lull you into a false sense of security…”

In hindsight, she should have known there would be a negative reaction – some people had their minds in the gutter.  When that reaction came, the loudest barks wouldn’t necessarily come from the smartest dogs.

Here’s how to join in:
  • Turn to page 48 of your current book, or 48% if you’re using an e-reader.
  • Take the first complete sentence on that page and copy it.
  • Now you’re going to continue the story! Ignoring the real plot or anything else you know about that book, add four new sentences of your very own. You can morph the plot completely, kill everybody off or go off on a huge tangent – anything goes!


Current Book:  Watch Mommy Die











1st complete sentence on page 48: 

Georgetown County sheriff A. Lane Cribb had been in law enforcement since 1973, thirty-two years.

My new version:

Georgetown County sheriff A. Lane Cribb had been in law enforcement since 1973, thirty-two years.  When he approached the home located at 777 Drury Lane, he never had that renowed ‘cop’s hunch’ that what he would find there would be, by far, the most disturbing thing he had ever seen in his entire career.  This crime scene made Jeffrey Dahmer’s apartment look PG rated in comparison.  It wasn’t just the fact that the victim count was so very high and the age of the victim’s so very young but what made it even more horrific was the thought and intention the killer took in the  positioning and posing of each and every body.  It was like a Martha Stewart decorating book for serial killers.

W…W…W Wednesdays

W…W…W…  Wednesdays

To play along, just answer the following three (3) questions:

• What are you currently reading?

• What did you recently finish reading?

• What do you think you’ll read next?

My answers:

What are you currently reading?    The Dovekeepers by Alice Hoffman.  I have been reading this on and off for a few weeks now.  There are some great quotes I have pulled from this book for Teaser Tuesdays!  There is a lot of symbolism in this story – which I love.  I will likely dive in and out of this one over the next little while.  So far, it seems like an excellent book!

  What did you recently finish reading?  Body Parts by Caitlin Rother.  Yes… I am one of those True Crime book fans!  I admit it. I just finished reading this on Monday night.  Needless to say… this serial killer was quite the sicko.  He killed and dismembered four women (that he admits to).   He walked into a police station, accompanied by his brother, with one of the victim’s breasts in a ziplock bag which he had in his jacket pocket.  He pulled the bag out to show the officer, as he tried to explain that “he had done something bad”.  According to the author, it is very rare that a serial killer will turn himself in to police.  This serial killer had enough ‘humanity’ in him, to realize that he could not stop himself from killing again, that he would kill again and that the only way he could prevent himself from doing so, was to turn himself into the police.  Which he did.  He was sentenced to the death penalty.

 What do you think you’ll read next?  The Grapes of Wrath by John Steinbeck.  One of my favourite books ever!  I love John Steinbeck’s writing.  I picked up another copy at the used book store today because I haven’t read it in years.  I am looking forward to absorbing every wonderful word of this classic book once again.  Are there any other Steinbeck fans out there? If so – please leave me a comment, I would love to know who you are!
