I would like it to be known that I wish everyone in the present administration in Washington ill.

Last Monday I got up in the middle of night because I smelled smoke. It took me about an hour to realize that it was the fires up north. I’m about 80 miles south of the fires. The smell has faded but the devastation goes on.

I had some rosemary left over after making some roast chicken. I’m not that fond of rosemary; it’s so strong, but I wanted to use it up. So I made Rosemary Bread. Mine doesn’t quite look like that.

Then I made Molasses Dinner Rolls. They’re a touch sweet but very tasty.

So you know that thing I linked to last week regarding a judge in Michigan giving joint custody of the product of his rape to a convicted rapist? Well, there's now a petition for the state of Michigan to initiate proceedings to have Judge Ross removed from the bench. Yay!

A few days ago something truly historic happened. Calico Fiend was perched up on the top of the sofa, grazing away at her dinner. Young Miss Weaver jumped up on the seat of the couch, directly below her, either in hopes of pieces of dry food falling from CF's perch, or in hopes of CF losing interest in her food and wandering off. I was bracing myself for hissing and yowling, like every other time the two of them got within swiping distance. But nothing happened. CF ignored YMW in favour of her dinner, and after a few minutes YMW jumped down off the couch and wandered off. And then the exact same thing happened this morning.

I don't think they're buddy-buddy, exactly, but they definitely seem to be tolerating each other much better than when they were first introduced.

So, note to self. Don't get raped at the age of 12 in Michigan, get pregnant as a result of the rape, and choose to carry to term. A Michigan judge will give your rapist (a twice-convicted child sex offender, convicted for assaulting 2 different children) joint custody over the child of your rape, and that same judge will also provide your convicted rapist with your home address for purposes of arranging joint custody, and issue a court order ordering you and your child to move back to Michigan to facilitate joint custody between and your rapist.

What the fuckity fucking fuck, Judge Gregory Ross? Have you no daughters, no wife, no nieces, no female friends you value? THINK for one fucking second before revictimizing this poor girl and her poor child.

Edited to add: And a commenter pointed out that Judge Ross should know this ruling is fucking wrong even if he's never met a woman socially in his entire life. The women in his life aren't responsible for him using his power as a judge to do this infinitely shitty thing. HE chose to make this judgment.

Parlour: Favorite party or board game?
When I was growing up, when people got together they played pinochle. I never learned to play because all I wanted to do was read.

I remember playing monopoly, which always seemed to go on too long for me. But I never was much for games (or so I remember it). I’m not very competitive and don’t enjoy being around people who take these things too seriously.

I did enjoy building 1000 piece puzzles at my cousin’s house when I was older. You’d work on your own part and just make jokes and stuff.

Living room: What do like to do with your family? N/A

I’m reading two good books right now. Guilty Thing: A Life of Thomas De Quincey by Frances Wilson. I knew nothing about De Quincey except his name. And I’m learning a lot about Wordsworth, not all of it good.

And The Legend of Baby Doe by John Burke. The mines of Colorado made a lot of millionaires in the late 19th century. Elizabeth Doe married one of them and I’m still in the part of her life where things are prosperous. But there are dark clouds on the horizon. Her rise and fall and struggles to rise again are what made her a legend.
