Damn it - Jury Duty

I was watching this movie last night on my DVR, called Runaway Jury, starring Gene Hackman, Dustin Hoffman and John Cusack.  It was fascinating, as I love the mental part of things... movies, books, ebooks... life.

So that got me to thinking about what if an attractive woman hypnotist got called for jury duty and she had a secret agenda about how the trial should go.

Damn I said to myself as I ripped open the official looking letter from the county court.  I was being called for jury duty.  NOT NOW.... I have so many things going on, I just can't....  I can't ......

But I did, and found myself in the jury prep room (not sure what they call it) where all the prospective jurors congregate and drink the most horrible coffee ever imagined. It certainly is not the fine imported beans I grind to brew and savor.  Certainly not!!

I look about the room, like I do in any group, seeing mostly common regular men and women. I hear there is a high profile case, but really folks, I need to get back to work and not waste my time here. I do notice a few men and the occasional woman checking me out in my tight jeans, boots and a knit top.  I try to smile

Finally they start to call a few perspective jurors out in pairs or sometimes three at a time.  Finally they come in with a long list and call 37 of us in for jury selection.  Gosh, I think that is overkill but I have been given number 069, which is one of my favorite numbers so I have to smile at that while we are being led like cattle into the courtroom to be questioned by the competing lawyer types to see who will be on the jury.  I really detest this but I am trying to do my civic duty.

So we are questioned one at a time about our thoughts concerning executive pay versus shareholder equity and low employee wages. This is a class action suit against one of the large banks, but we have only been given a slight heads up on what is going on.  I notice an attractive girl, who I later find out is named emily, being asked about her occupation and any prejudices she might have concerning the scant details. There is also a huge football player type person , being questioned.  And of course all the others, too many to remember.

Finally they get around to me, asking me my profession and then whether they think my profession would offer any conflict of interest.  Then they ask me about any thoughts I have on either the plaintiff side or the prosecution side. Satisfied they move on to a house wife looking woman, that turns out to be exactly that.  A long day of jury selection for sure and the next morning they will let us know who is selected. I ignore most of the stares I receive as I figure I will not see these people after tomorrow. As a note: I definitely have thoughts about this case and hope I can get on to help influence some of my fellow jurors.  *smiles* 

Personal activities

I was wondering if people would be interested in my personal blog of what I do or think about.  Sort of a personal glimpse into my life and thoughts....  any comments?

I was thinking you could also ask me questions through leaving comments (which are private to me until I decide to publish or delete them)

1/12/4 I see my new story is gathering interest and should gather speed in next few days.  I am very excited about this real-life possibility.
The interesting thing I do is watch how many people give a certain story a "+1" by clicking the little button.   Might you guess which story that is?  I think you will be surprised, I know I was.

1/11/4 I get many idea for stories from many places.  Last night I got the inspiration for my newest story from watching a movie. Hmmm, now how can I turn this plot around for my advantage?

1/7/14 Interesting enough, I have had a few comments and discussions with people about spirals lately.  What is so compelling about watching a spiral? What keeps your interest as you sit there and gaze longingly into the spiral as your eyes get drawn into the very center? Or maybe it's not even interest, but more of just being there and relaxing. I love observing someone just watching a spiral, it is so exciting.

12/31/13 As we come to the end of 2013, at least here in the US, I look back and consider myself lucky that I was able to write and have people enjoy what I write. I hope many more, in 2014, will find out about this and join in.  I think some of you will let your friends know about this little corner of the internet.

As I go off to celebrate Christmas with my relatives, I look at the neighbor story and find I have written over 6,500 words.  I must say it is well on its way to being an eBook.

I wonder at what point I should take it off here and make it strictly an eBook ready for publication.  I think I will delay that for a bit, because I am enjoying the feedback I am getting.


  • I get so many nice comments about my site. I got another heart felt one this morning and it made me smile.  I hope everyone has a great Christmas.  Remember the reason for the season!!
  • Interesting observation.  If I do not write anything new for a day or two, the number of visits to my site goes down.  That makes sense, and then when I do write (like today), the visits go up dramatically.  Do I infer that people follow my blog or me?  Answers?

12/30/13 Well back from visiting and enjoying myself, finally at a PC alne and ready to do more.... more writing... more creating....  it is damn luscious, that's what it is.
12/21/13 Today was kind of a busy day, but that is expected this time of year. Consequently I did not get any more writing done.  That is wayyyy too bad, right?
12/20/13 What a nice morning to stay in and get some more writing done. I think you might find it amazing how the neighbor story is developing.
12/19/13 - The neighbor story is getting more involved, meaning it is expanding in scope and intensity.  I will give honor to the person that can name all the women in the neighbor story so far.
12/18/13 - Time to pump up the adrenaline rush on my neighborhood story.  I have this little gizmo developed exclusively for me to enact a devious plan .... well, you will see if you follow my story.
12/16/13 - I think its a day of writing and enjoying the feedback I get.  You might see the neighbors being expanded in scope, which is something that will happen all the way along. (Kim, Misty, Sheri and Marcia) (oops, Debi too)
12/15/13 - kind of a lazy Sunday today. I should be around my usual places most of the day. I think I will add to the Neighbor story, as I have lots to add.  I might even make it into an eBook.  I wonder who would buy it if it were the first of a series?

12/14/13 - 

  • Well I think today might have some new updates to my stories.  I have been talking online with some that are enjoying some of my stories, so that always makes me smile.  We had a dusting of snow last night and the air has turned a bit less brutal, which makes my mood improve.
  • I am surprised how many people like to read about my personal details, or activities.  I am working with a couple of people now to help them become what they want, charging my hourly rate and getting paid through Amazon egiftcard sent via email to me.  It think that is working out well.  It is like working with a private client in my office, but only here over the internet, but still giving my full attention to the person.
  • courtesan - Now that is an interesting area to pursue.  The molding of a woman that has one purpose in life, no matter how she feels at the moment, that of giving pleasure to a man. It starts with her appearance, the way she moves, the catering she might do for a man. And of course the ultimate pleasure of seeing the man spent in Ecstasy. What greater pleasure could she have from giving so freely of herself?  No wonder a woman such as this might garner $3000 for one night of giving pleasure to a man.  If anyone has any ideas, resources or thoughts about this, please message me immediately.

12/13/13 - Woke up today at 3:40am.  I wonder why?  Oh yes, I was thinking about my stories, one in particular and how much I am enjoying writing it.  Well back to bed for me.... need beauty sleep
  • I found a delicious little item to add to my 'neighbors' story, not now but eventually. 
  • I have a busy day, so I better get my shower and off to it. I hope tonight I will have time to do some writing..... so hotly erotic writing.
12/12/13 - I got a couple of nice questions showing up this morning when I got up
  • One was about what goes through my mind when I lead a subject into trance. Well, I am very intent on my craft and how to weave a trance so that the subject feels every bit of it. I do love the creative force behind good hypnosis. I think maybe my readers can tell that from my writings, yes? 
  • Secondly, the question was about my heart beating faster as the trance goes on. Yes, I have to say that is true. I can sense a persons feelings as they are going under and do get to feeling how fast my heart is beating.
Getting back from the morning out for appointments, I finished updating the story "very fortunate" to make it more readable and hot.  I hope you like it.
  • Today I got a request that said many people would love to hear more about me, so this is where I will be giving you personal information about what my day is like or what story has been changed or added to.  ok?
12/10/13 - I slept in a bit, well actually not sleep, but laid in bed thinking about my stories and where the 'neighbors' story might go. Those thoughts kept me nice and warm *wink*
12/8/13 - doing a little writing and more just relaxing around the house.  I got some new ideas for the neighbor story
12/7/13 - reading "The Storyteller" right now in answer to a question I received.
