I'm so sorry, sweetie.

Agreed, The Last Jedi was the best of the new three and I REALLY wish they'd followed up in that vein for RoS.... sigh.

As someone who spent around 3 years interpreting as robotically as possible, I’m glad threepio is in SW to give us interpreters some representation

Are you signed in at LJ? Because it's friends-only now. I got tired of all the damn Russian spambots liking my posts. Though FWIW, I haven't posted since August, but now that I know that, another entry is semi-imminent.

OMG I AM THE WORST PERSON ON THE PLANET!! Yes, I have been getting it and totally meant to thank you but obvs. I totes spaced out on that score. I am sooo sorry! David likes it a lot too, in fact he's already absconded with it to take home with him a few times. Your kindness and thoughtfulness are much appreciated! ❤

Lils, why does your LJ not work? It claims because of my adblocker, but that isn't it.
Also...have you been getting Funny Times?

I loved that one comment at the photographs article, re: if your Tesla gets stolen, does it become an Edison?

Yeah, neither do I.

It took them a year to even notice and I was released on a non-surety bond.

Why do you all think I'm going to jail?! Is it from experience, because this has happened to you?
If it has, give me REAL advice. If it hasn't...panic somewhere else please.

Sorry for the lack of reassurance, but I concur heartily with Zef. I DON'T WANT YOU GOING TO PRISON DAMMIT.

I'm sure the cops are making themselves look as nice and affable as possible to bring your defense down, I still wouldn't trust them. From everything I've read, for whatever unfounded reason sawn off shotguns are seen as terrible destruction devices and punished super harshly, I doubt they will take it just as a book keeping issue, even with your being white and all they will want a big fine or some jail time and both options would be terrible. Please please please I don't know (I doubt it, honestly) if lawyers can give you something like a 'free consultation' but really ask one because from everything I've read this is not something that they will let go lightly of and you really really need to have a lawyer heading into it

WOW, just let me apologize to all of you. I'm supposed to get automatic email reminders of when people comment, but somehow that got turned off. Probably by Byron stomping on the keyboard. So I thought no one had said anything here.

Zef: It is not remotely 18 inches, it was right down to the handgrip. I also cut the stock down to as small as possible. It fit in my mouth better. They're also not, IMO, throwing the book at me. I surrendered the gun as well as myself voluntarily. The fact that they waited a year, and the booking cop's lack of urgency and hostility, makes me at least hope that this will be a formality. I was told "We just want to clear this off the books," so it may just be more a bookkeeping issue than some Threat to Public Safety. As to them screwing me: I'M WHITE, so no. The screwing would've begun with them storming my house and ended with fucking killing me 5 minutes later.

Lils: I get a public defender when I get there. I'd rather the gummint went hard on gun owners than easy.

Fal, re horror tootsies: **barf**

Sorry to hear about that man. Glad it wasn't any worse for you.

Bill, I’ve been thinking and reading, and since it’s been a whole year, could it be that the police knows your shotgun is still within the legal limits, but they’re trying to screw with you? If the barrel is still 18 inches at least it doesn’t qualify under the illegal definition of sawed-off shotgun, sawing isn’t the issue, the length is... I noticed the addition of the paragraph about the Thompsons, so you possibly already know all of this, but yeah, please get legal counsel, even if it sucks to pay a lawyer it is better than letting cops win or worse, take you away

Holy shit, Bill. Is this a Liberal Connecticut Thing? I mean, WTF? >:(

Your court date is on my birthday. The present I'm asking for this year is for these bullshit charges to be dropped.


PS: David says you should NOT show up without a lawyer. You should be able to find one who will accept payments if you can't afford one outright.

It makes my blood boil how much of a gun worship culture you have over there, and how easy it is to get all sorts of stuff (over here we're not allowed to have semi autos, or anything over a certain, weak caliber) and yet they're throwing the book at you. I'm not joking or anything, it legit makes me furious.
