If you look at this at about 52 minute mark Juan is asking about the cuts on her hands and if they came from the stabbing. JA says at about 52:40 she did not remember the stabbing at that point in time. Am I wrong or didn't she testify on direct that she never remembered the stabbing. If you watch her eyes when she says this it's like she knows she made a mistake. I wish Juan had called her out on that and asked at what point in time she remembered the stabbing.

In her mind he deserved to die because he had the nerve to use her and discard her. Can you imagine if we all used that to justify killing another individual?
Wow. Just Wow. That story deserved some kind of response. I don't know what to say, but I marvel at your composure in relating that scenario. Sounds like something from the twilight zone.

It has not been submitted as evidence yet. I have not seen a copy anywhere. Allegedly, 18 pages of "short and sweet". I'd hate to get a long letter from her, if it's anything like her long testimony.

I agree, her programming is quite ridiculous. I simply stopped watching JVM a long time ago. She's so loud and overly dramatic she's like a carnival barker. Then she frequently has to throw it out there about being a vegan and a tee-totaler. Not to mention that she's barely recognizable compared to ten years ago, amazing she had time to hold down a job. Ok, no doubt we all could use a little help. But everything with her just seems to be overboard. And personally, it is beyond me why anyone would be so eager for people to know how neurotic they are. And the thing is, I could just do with less neurotic people in my life, not more, whether they are on cable news or elsewhere. As always, this is jmo.

Yes, Bada Bing -- Iris was the character played so ably by Jodie Foster (one of my all-time favorite actresses, BTW.) That is just dayam spooky, IMO.

We know Jodi is apparently a big movie watcher. Were these names from her knowing, conscious mind, or were they from somewhere dark and frightening inside her? (This is a serious question.)

Yesterday, both defense attorneys were nodding yes and no to JA. If the camera were to be on them the entire time, I am positive we would see much more. IMO - they are coaching her from their seats. I also notice that Nurmi sometimes raises his leg when she is asked a question and seems stumped.

All MOO.

She won.

Maybe she will get the grand prize.
I think the biggest joke of all with her is that she was going to commit suicide. She could have cut herself deeper with a piece of paper. She talks about it to freely. I can't even believe something as serious as she was going to commit suicide.

Thanks, it was surreal. I wish I could go into the detail of my questions about it, but it would likely gross some people out. I am, by nature, inquisitive. Some call it nosy, some call it curious. I just know that I am in good company here at WS.

Is that the letter Jodi says she sent to Travis' grandmother when she talks about the 20 Irises she sent!

I picked up on that immediately because I saw her eyes shift to look at her team for direction. Her answer was something like I didnt remember it then.

Ok instead of "I still don't remember anything about a stabbing"

To the rest of your post, I don't think Nurmi was coaching. Just reacting in a less than discreet manner. I think he's just sick of Martinez's method of cross.
Actually I think he is sick of trying to defend a client that he cannot control. And I think Nurmi made a huge mistake in letting JA ramble on and on and on for nine days embellishing each story as she went. Those little extra details that she just had to add to every sentence out of her mouth during that time has come back to bite them both in the butt.

Let me preface this comment with this: My view on the issue of suicide may be distorted after living with a BPD mother who uses it as a tool to get attention

I don't believe for one moment JA ever intended suicide. If anything she played like she was for attention or to try to make a better defense case for herself. People who actually want to commit suicide do, very rarely do the try and fail. She wasn't in a position where she spoke about it and someone intervened, so if she actually wanted to she would have...successfully. IMHO, of course.

I also remember Jodi saying that she didn't remember the stabbing at that point in time. I expected Juan to ask her when she started remembering it. I don't think he caught that, though.
