This morning I was delighted to see that Danielle Bregoli (the "Cash me outside" girl I saw twice on Dr. Phil) has pled guilty to grand theft and other lesser charges. NBC also reports that Bregoli could face additional charges for a battery incident earlier this year after she and her friends were caught on surveillance video attacking a group of women outside of Kavasutra Kava Bar.

The first time I saw on her on Dr. Phil I thought she was an out-of-control teen but I had some hope that Dr. Phil and the ranch he sent her to would provide the help she needed. The follow-up visit on Dr. Phil showed in spite of therapy and additional time to grow up she still believes society's rules don't apply to her and that she is immune to negative consequences. Hopefully the the court will disabuse of her of this notion before her actions get someone killed and she ruins her chances for a life outside of prison. (Do I think she needs to be incarcerated now, yes I do. Do I think she deserves a life sentence for what she's done thus far? No, not at all.)

In my opinion she's immature, greedy, and selfish. I also think she's going to have a hard time finding a legal way to afford the lifestyle she wants.

We've belonged to Costco for many years and I generally leaf through their magazine when it arrives. I did so with the July issue and ran into this article, Lessons from horses. It's one page, worth reading, and when I got to the part on the Alpha Mare, I thought "No wonder I don't trust Trump, he has none of these things."

If I counted the hours, I would not be at all surprised to learn that I spend roughly twelve hours a day thinking about, or reading about, politics. A smallish percent of that is devoted to the intersection of politics and religion. Which lead to this morning's reading of A florist caught between faith and financial ruin in the Christian Science Monitor. I cannot recall ever feeling so torn between two incompatible beliefs, the belief that one has to live up to the dictates of one's own morals/religion and other being that discrimination is flat out wrong.

Eventually I remembered about those religious sermons concerning slavery and how the bible said slavery was A-Okay. Eventually the church caught up and decided that slavery was a bad thing but I don't remember how, exactly, that change took place. I wish I could because I think whatever strategy was used then will have to be re-employed to correct church thinking and teaching when it comes to marriage.

One of the stories I remember from childhood is the "The Emperor's New Clothes;" when I tell it to myself it begins not with the weavers but with his staff claiming that he is dressed fabulously and that they are in the presence of true greatness. And that was all I could think of when I read Trump’s Cabinet, With a Prod, Extols the ‘Blessing’ of Serving Him this morning. My stomach is literally churning with disgust that (a) he needs a course of flattery before getting down to the business of leading the country and (b) that his administration is willing to give it to him.

I spent the weekend reminding myself that this work week starts on Tuesday and not to screw up because I have a doctor's appointment Wednesday morning which will, of course, feel like Tuesday because the first day of work will feel like Monday. But somehow I overlooked that I post my Project 52 pages on Wednesday and that therefore I needed to create the page on fake Monday. Oops.

As is my usual morning routine, I just checked my Google news feed and happened to notice the blurb that Princess Charlotte is celebrating her second birthday and that her parents have released a new photograph. I don't particularly care about the Royal family (although I do have great respect for the Queen) but I had to check out the photo because I wanted a better look at the sweater Princess Charlotte is wearing. What I want to know is whether it was hand-knit, if so who knit it, and if the pattern is available on Ravelry.

Late last night I learned there is a kickstarter for a film about fandom and from the sound of it, I think it could be a whole lot of fun and hopefully it will be because I just realized I pledged slightly more than half of my monthly allowance to the project. The film concerns a fictional buddy cop show called Bay City. If you're interested in backing it, or just learning more, here's a link to the kickstarter page:

If This is Wrong: A Film About Fandom.

p.s. You can tell I'm excited just by looking at that run-on sentence in the first paragraph!

Spring is here and the spring flowers are not only blooming, many have started to fade. Our rhubarb is nearly knee-high and weeds are doing their best to take over the garden beds. Not that I felt like doing any weeding over the weekend — cleaning up from the coffee spill took most of Saturday and on Sunday we wanted to go walk at the zoo. That seemed particularly important as we'd tried to go for a long walk Saturday evening and I didn't even make it all the way down to 12 Mile before I admitted defeat and had us turn around and return home. I'm not so much sick as cold and exhausted. Next week I see my sleep apnea doctor and I'm looking forward seeing him. I have two CPAP machines, the first one I got and then the second, a newer model that records what it does. I figured the doctor would want the data and switched to using the newer model a week or two ago. I have a harder time sleeping with new one and I'm not sure why. It is quieter, it seems to blow harder, and absolutely worst of all, it doesn't humidify the air as effectively as the old machine. After two or three hours my throat hurts so much it wakes me up. Drinking a half liter of water puts a dent in the pain and I go back to bed. I'm wondering if there is something I can do to the machine to increase the humidity of the air I'm breathing.

The trip to the zoo was far different than it was during the winter, the biggest difference being the number of zoo visitors. I knew it was going to be crowded when, before we even reached the gated entrance I saw cars parked on the lawn. The parking structure was full and the big parking lot had cars squeezed into nooks and crannies that aren't actual parking places. We walked around for a few hours and then went out to dinner.
