    I have twin boys who juggle fruit, very badly, so I always have dented apples and squishy oranges from repeated drops on hardwood floors. I hope you are easier on produce. My guys lack interest in juggling items that aren't edible-hopefully you are more open minded.

    So, with the BPD, is is just a gradual awareness that hey, what's that about...gee, that's not normal...hmmm, I'm starting to get scared...

    You don't seem terribly naive (in a good way!) especially in comparison to Travis who seemed to dwell amidst extremely nice, hardworking, kind Mormons. I tend to think he was fairly naive in regard to psychopathy that had a pretty face (relatively speaking, at least back then).

    He grew up with bad things that were clearly defined as bad, dirty house, druggie parents and he sought out the good, the "normal" suburban house, nice car type thing as a young adult. Yet he couldn't bring himself to marry even though he knew he should. He had his long term girlfriend but he couldn't commit. He was looking for something that he hadn't found yet. Was Jodi as a BPD able to tell and pretend to be that "thing" he had been missing?

    I've wondered whether Travis was an easy "mark" for a BPD or whether Jodi just masked her BPD well at first so she appeared to be the same type of nice, normal woman that Travis was used to. I see him as not catching on for a long time to what she really was. I see him easy to maipulate with sob story dramas. He was used to people who actually were what they seemed to be and Jodi was nothing like she pretended to be.

    Yet, so many of his friends were creeped out by Jodi. That could just be revisionist history. But clearly, after a certain point people began to know who she really was. But Travis hung in there longer, too long obviously.

    I just find it puzzling, what the process is of discovering that a person you think you love, is an actually dangerous person who could and would hurt you. It must be hard to believe and they must try to convince you you're wrong. It must be quite traumatic. To find this out and then need to extricate yourself and keep yourself mentally and physically safe.

    So when she wrote that journal entry, "It's a good day - I'm excited my phone is coming today" - that was a LIE?? because she wrote that a LONG time ago!
    Does she just make stuff up and write it in her diary, or was she planning this whole thing way back then?

    I don't think a hair stylist is necessary or coming. The evidence entered was the photo that the defense showed "proving " JA's hair in May when she said she dyed it brown. That photo was the one with kind of blonde brown mish mash. The photo she took on her phone June 3rd at 2:12 pm was very dark brown.

    Jodi's love of "selfies" will be the death of her yet (or get her closer to it.) ;)

    They took the 2nd Helio from her upon arrest. That is how they knew she shut it off before going into AZ.
    The 1st Helio showed up in 2010 when she needed the blackmail sex call and they found the pics of her "new do" from June 3 rd

    Funny you say that. My girlfriend and I were saying the same thing, but because we believe she would not really play the victim for ALV very well. She has to be in control. She wouldn't want anyone to believe Travis was in control instead of her. Because of that, she refused to play the victim roll she so desperately needed to fool the jury.

    IDK, those have not been released yet.

    Are you saying after those texts (May25), they never texted again? I doubt that. moo

    Travis also called Jodi twice in the early hours of Jun3.

    One call was approx. 45 mins. long. I bet that was another phone sex call.

    I also took it as someone clearing out any other possible sources for the gun, other than it being the killer's grandfathers gun.

    It is like they already realize it was NOT Travis's, so just to clarify, they want to rule out the roommates as well. Getting rid of any reasonable doubts, imo.
