The Care and Feeding of Rarasaur

The Care and Feeding of Rarasaur

Nemo

Not to brag, but I think I’d make a pretty fabulous pet.

It’s something I’ve had cause to think about a lot lately.  I’ve considered my merits and flaws, and compared myself to how I imagine others would fare—and, all in all, I think I’d be ‘Best in Show” quality.

You’re probably wondering what criteria I’ve used to judge my pet-possibilities, so let’s delve deeper:

  1. I’m easy to clean and…

Last Forever

8 ouroboros

Note: No Rara didn’t get out.  This week she was finally transferred to state prison.  Over the last while she has been sending me, her husband, things to post, but due to my own living situation (getting threatened, kicked out, near homelessness, no internet, no electricity, etc.)  I haven’t had time to type them and post them, per her request.  From now on, any post sent to via mail to me by…

Send ‘em if you got ‘em

We’ll here is a very long update:

A few days ago, Rara was transferred to a different section of the jail.  Frankly, from all accounts, it’s worse.  Rara isn’t doing very well.  For the first time, she called me crying.  She is now in what they call the tank, with 30 other females.  Luckily she knows most of them, so has some seniority with any newbies.  She’s still well liked, but there seems to…

A bit of good news now:

I was just hired today, on the spot to work at an art gallery.  I start tomorrow.  The people there were very excited to have me, which is nice.  Plus they were very sensitive to providing me time to pursue my own artistic endeavours.

Now some bad news:

The district attorney final came back with a plea offer for Rara.  3 years in state…

Delayed Again

As expected on the 11th nothing happened at her court date.  Her public defender did show up, but the prosecutor didn’t because he was on vacation.  They are expecting to receive plea deal by Monday.  If it isn’t awful Rara plans to accepted, though she said if it’s bad she may fight.

The new court date is for the 26th.  If she accepts the deal, it think this is where the judge will either give…

1 Month

It’s been a month since Rara went to jail, and as time stretches on, things seem to be getting harder and harder.

The other day during a discussion, I defined hope as: An intentionally false belief to help you get through a difficult time.

And perhaps that is what is slowly dwindling.  The hope that this might suddenly work itself out.  Some legal higher-up, would come and say, “This has been all…

The Waiting Game

I’ve been putting off this post for a few days now; trying to figure the right words to use.

I know there have been rumblings for the need to take direct action in Rara’s defence.  And the news I have will only fan the flames.  But in the interest of full disclosure I’ll tell you, if you promise to read till the end.

As you might know Rara had a court date on the 23rd.  She asked me not to go.…

P.S.  You may have noticed that I haven’t been on the blogs.  With a cold and adjusting to a new job, my scheduling has been erratic.  Hopefully soon I will get back to work.

I just went off on a woman who posted a comment on my blog, on a post that had nothing to do with all of this, believing I was Rarasaur, upset that I made a disparaging remark about Baby Boomers in that post “Origin Story”– the one that explained what had happened.

I couldn’t sleep at all last night.  I can feel the depression escalating.

I visited Rara today, to learn that she isn’t eating.  She…
