    IIRC, Jodi said early on that she wanted to represent herself. She never did. You said you need a good laugh. Do you subscribe to Netflix? Have a Redbox near you so you can rent funny movies? IMO, I cannot find anything funny about Jodi's trial. Well, except for Juan Martinez asking Alice LaViolette about Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. MOO:moo:

    I find this clip from There's Something About Mary funny.

    Trailers usually fall apart and depreciated in value. If it just going to be you living there, why not look into a "tiny house". There are many website and places to find them. "Tiny Tumbleweed House" are probably to most famous but they are wayyy overpriced. There are quite a few overpriced makers of tiny houses but keep looking. Many of them are quite easy to put together with just a a few days to a few weeks work and a few friends and tools.Just search "Tiny Houses" on Google and you will find hundreds of resources.

    Many tiny houses are incredibly creative and can be built inexpensively if you put your mind to it. I have always loved them and wanted one and now we have our own 600sq ft house that we bought for less that $5000 because it needed to be moved. It's a wood frame house so jacking it up, putting it up on a flatbed trailer and moving it was tricky but my hubby did it.

    Check out http://www.panelconcepts.com/ - This is my favorite site because they give you great information on their prices, styles and optional choices. You can practically customize the model to the size you want, choose options and they have the prices right there for you to see. From what i remember, they were the site that I spent the most time at, browsing over the models and reading. They were the most reasonably priced ones too.

    The website http://tinyhouselistings.com/ is a good site just to see a vast array of little houses and their costs all over the US.

    Here are some other sites to look at as well.

    Did she actually tweet that she read To Kill a Mockingbird?

    Aww, if I was a single gal and had money to expend I would so build a tiny home.

    I love Ross Chapin, he also designs pocket neighborhoods, which also sound pretty awesome.

    No. anybody can set up a Twitter account and say it is from Jodi Arias. There are many frauds out there. Call Sheriff Joe.

    One of them is real. I was wondering if the real Jodi actually tweeted that.

    Arpaio knows. He does not care. It isn't her sitting and tweeting, it is someone speaking for her. She cannot actually get access to twitter. Since she isn't tweeting there isn't anything he can do.

    I hv a new laptop with windows 8; there is a slight learning curve. I don't use the home app page, I still go directly to desk top. I updated to 8.1; and it almost lost everything on my system and really screwed me UP. whatever you do; don't download or install 8.1 while it's in beta. IMMHO

    I think I've been following too many trials and reading about too many horrible cases lately. Last night I had two truly terrifying dreams. Shook me up so bad that I ended up sleeping on the couch with the tv on. I'm still a little bothered by them this morning.

    Does this ever happen to anyone else?

    The biggest lie I told my kids - well, my son - was that the Wedway People Mover at Disney World's Magic Kingdom was Space Mountain. We knew he'd love Space Mountain's roller coaster, but he refused to try it. So we looked around to the People Mover, which moves like molasses and looks like the safest thing in the world, pointed it out to him and said, "That's Space Mountain's roller coaster!"

    :rollercoaster:

    Of course, he loved the real thing, and insisted on going on Space Mountain several times. I still feel bad about the lie, though :blushing:. I wouldn't even tell my kids there was a Santa, I just said "I've heard conflicting stories," or something like that. Hey, I didn't want them to end up in a tower shooting people because of the horrible betrayal! :scared:

    I bought a win8 computer and loved it so much that I also purchased the win8 phone. I am with you though, on my computer I rarely use the home app page except for things like netfix and hulu.

    All in all, I highly recommend windows 8... not brave enough to update to 8.1 though, heard to many horror stories.. yours included!

    I have bad dreams all the time. Not super nightmares, but where I'm chased or harrassed or haven't paid my hotel bill in weeks and months and I know it's going to be a doozy!

    It worried me, so I did some research, and found that negative dreams are the norm. People actually have more negative dreams than positive ones.

    I guess it's all in your perspective, though. Hubby says he has dreams that, in real life, would be considered "adventure vacations," e. g., dangerous hiking in the mountains, or helping save a ship from sinking. The particulars don't seem very fun to me, but he's kind of a "glass half full" person. I'm more like a "Does anyone see the obvious spots on this glass? Can we wash it again?" kind of person. :floorlaugh:

    YorN, I have always been fascinated by the homes they make out of shipping containers.

    There is a huge glut of shipping containers cause of all the stuff we buy from China. They are starting to use them in some really creative ways, like emergency housing for areas hit by natural disasters (like Haiti, shown here:
    http://www.mnn.com/your-home/remodeling-design/blogs/a-seed-of-hope-in-haiti)

    But some are so cute! And they are virtually indestructible, if you have to worry about tornadoes or hurricanes.

    Plus, you can ship them pretty much anywhere, on trains, ships, so if you decide to move, you can take your whole house!

    And you can easily expand by just adding more containers.

    There are some really fancy ones you can find that I am sure cost a lot of $$, but there are also very simple cheap ones like these:

    http://www.globalportablebuildings.com/Ultimate.html?gclid=CMKY8KGzubgCFcOe4AodLHAAqA

    I think this is a fascinating 'green' idea and if I didn't' already have a house, I would definitely investigate.

    I would say that if following true crime and real trials and cases is new to you then YES. Even though I have been a part of the system and followed cases since I was ten yrs old, I still can become traumatized by following a trial. Jessica Lundsfords case gave me nightmares. It is common I would say. Best to fill your head now with some good stuff, garden, music, do some real world things. After the Chavez verdict, the Zimmerman verdict and Casey A's verdict, I think many of us feel like :banghead:

    You are not alone if you are suffering some nightmares, or depression even; or just complete sadness for the victims and the families. I would agree, it's quite normal IF you are a very compassionate person. Feel better soon. Hopefully our Justice System will be restored, some how some way. But people are going to hv to start to care at the very least. Like they used to.

    So does anyone know what the judge decided as to a new trial date? I know there is another status hearing update, but will that even be televised? Maybe her new DP phase WILL NOT BE COVERED LIVE. Wouldn't that be a blow to miss "I love the camera and the fame and being infamous", it's all she will EVER achieve. IMMHO
