Hm.

Isn’t it interesting that for all the bitching and threatening and distracting…

Republicans don’t dispute the facts?

He was convicted by a jury of his peers

He refused to testify

He’s guilty of this and a lot more

@flexghost #felontrump and now his acolytes are like the old self-defense rhyme: “I’m rubber, you’re glue, whatever you say sticks right back to you!” Whatever they say about the Dems is guaranteed to be what’s true about themselves.

#Alito has no shame. It isn’t just that he refuses to recuse himself from #Jan6 cases before the Supreme Court — it’s his arrogant assertion that he can assess how a “reasonable person” would view his involvement. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/politics/2024/05/29/justice-alito-rejects-recuse-flags-jan-6-cases/ 73895356007/ 1/ #JudicialEthics #RuleOfLaw

Most Americans, including those enacting 6-week #abortionbans, don’t actually understand how the timing or dating of pregnancy works. Many women don't know yet they are pregnant at 6 weeks.

Scholars explain how research on what Americans understand about #abortion raises “serious questions about whether Americans without medical training – much like those in our state legislatures – have the necessary knowledge needed to regulate abortion access.”

@TheConversationUS These right-wingers aren’t stupid. They’re aware that 6 weeks is too early to know you’re pregnant, no matter how you count. Once again, the cruelty is the purpose.

@GottaLaff Wowzers! Have a safe, uneventful trip and an easy time settling in. We’ll all be sending “buy this house” energy to future lookers. 💕💕💕

@GottaLaff@mastodon.social avatar

So here's how it's going:

We got all the furniture into the POD and now have to pack what's remaining in the kitchen. So things are a little messy

Our twins are down from Canada helping, & their dear friend is here for the night from San Diego, to see them. We adore her. But it's a little chaotic

At 4:30 am we get a text--coincidentally we're awake--from our pal/realtor! We'd missed her earlier text, we have a showing today at 12:30. Oy. & why was SHE up?

Scramble time

Just a normal day

Busy day today, folks, so I'll be posting only when I can.

PODzilla is coming with POD #2 any minute, and picking up POD #1

Meeting with our realtor to brainstorm on selling our HouseWithoutAFingPool.

Our twins will be in from Canada this afternoon to help us schlep furniture into POD #2.

Boring life, huh?

@GottaLaff Moving is exhausting. Relocating is exhausting. Selling a house is exhausting. Money worries (from unsold house) are exhausting. You’re batting 1000–no wonder you’re wiped out! But the end is in sight…

Trump would then have his secretary ask the husband to stop by his office. Once the husband got in, Trump would subject him to “constant sexual banter” — all while having the wife listen in on the conversation via speakerphone.

Ugh, totally wasted open house. Lookee-loo City. I'm so glad this was our last one before we leave. The rest will be after, and the house will be vacant.

Sigh.

So, with that, I'll perk myself up (and hopefully you) with another dopey gif.

I can't believe it'll be a week from tomorrow!

Have a good evening, everyone!

Back to regular life... the Open House, although filled with positive feedback on our house, was a dud.

Again.

It's so disheartening. We're priced right, the house is beautiful, in great shape, great neighborhood... etc etc.

So we wait.

JaneinNJ,
@JaneinNJ@newsie.social avatar

@GottaLaff I’m sorry to say it, but if that many people are not biting, your asking price may not be right. Maybe time to think about lowering it.

JaneinNJ,
@JaneinNJ@newsie.social avatar

@GottaLaff Oh, I am so sorry to hear that. Here in the NYC metro market, it’s the opposite, esp since the pandemic began. Houses are selling within a very short time at way inflated prices.
