1. Had dinner and drinks (aka, one margarita) Friday evening at Viva! with some of the old smoke shop crew: Boss Lady, Melodrama, Sweetheart, Miss Congeniality, ET, and AD. (I don't remember if I ever gave them nicknames? They may have left for other jobs before I switched from initials to nicknames. Anyway, I'd probably call them... hmm... the Engineer and the Journalist.) It was really good to see everyone again and catch up on life events and whatnot. :)

2. Went to bed at 8:30pm on Saturday and did not get up until 9:00am on Sunday. O_o Apparently I needed the sleep.

3. LAUNDRY. This was more important than in many weeks, since my laundry schedule got slightly disrupted by my parents' visit two weeks ago, and also my constant work schedule means I can't really wear my jeans and am thus down a set of pants in my normal rotation. So I ended up having to dress up in a skirt, pantyhose, etc. today since I didn't have anything in between super-fancy and casual grunge. *sigh* (I mean, my definition of super-fancy is probably most other people's definition of fairly casual lunch date, but still.)

4. Changed linens.

5. Recharged my bus pass.

6. Took kitchen compost to the backyard bin.

7. Took recycling to the curb for pickup.

8. Continued plonking away at the Enchanted Forest Chronicles ficlet, which is now at ~2,850 words. I still have to fold in the explanation of what the unexpected ambassadors are there to discuss, and then segue into the ending action. Also I think I lost track of one of my speaking characters as I've been reworking old material into the new, more friendly/cheerful version of the fic. Something to go back and check on once I push through to the end.

I am kind of annoyed at myself for taking so long to write a story that is, objectively speaking, pretty short. Some of it is related to my perpetual tiredness, of course, and some to the series of wrong turns I kept taking, but my writing is also more affected by my mood than I sometimes like to admit, and I haven't really been in a fluffy mood these past few months.

...

I might write a horrendously dark mini-ficlet or two as a mental palate-cleanser once I finish this fic, since my other scheduled projects are also on the lighter end of the tone scale and I'm afraid I'll run into similar problems with them if I don't have somewhere to just break stuff on the side. *wry*

And now, I think, to bed. :)

We went out for a late breakfast yesterday. There’s a pancake place on Zeeb Rd that Scott has been wanting to try for quite a while. I don’t remember the name. I got blueberry pancakes but only managed to eat one of the three. Cordelia got a waffle with strawberries and ate half of it. Scott got French toast and a scrambled egg and ate all of it. The three of us shared two orders of bacon. Cordelia didn’t order any because she likes it chewy rather than crisp. Most places don’t cook bacon to her preference, but this place did, so she ate some of mine and some of Scott’s.

I’ve eaten one of my leftover pancakes, and Cordelia has eaten her leftover waffle.

We made an expedition out to the place from which we rent Cordelia’s viola because her bow was on its last legs. The woman at the desk looked at it and told us it was done for. Getting the new bow took about five minutes in the shop.

My cold is still getting worse. I almost couldn’t drag myself out of bed this morning. We’ve got an appointment at 11:30, so I had to, but it was harder than it usually is. I still feel like I could fall asleep rapidly if I let myself. I might end up spending a lot of this afternoon sleeping. I think the only thing that has to be done is the library run, and I’m not actually required for that.

Cordelia’s got an annoying school assignment that involves writing a song (well, lyrics to the pre-existing tune of her choice) about the US presidential election of 1800. The assignment is a little more specific in that the teacher wants a campaign song supporting either Jefferson or Adams. Scott’s working on that with her because my brain is utterly fried.

Concrete things done today: I slept until I woke up without an alarm (in practice, I slept badly and not all that late), took an accidental three-hour nap in the afternoon (with weird dreams and some discomfort), watched two episodes of The Good Place (three left), and watched the two episodes it took me to catch up on The 100. Technically those things were all on last night's modest to-do list for the weekend, plus while it's too soon to know if I'll catch what [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose has, at least today it seems clear that he's got another cold, not flu or something. Now if it'll just be (MUCH) easier on him than the one he had recently. >.> And I still hope to not come down with it, but at least I'm not mildly freaked out by the prospect like I am by the thought of flu.

Additional small accomplishments: we cut both cats' claws (hey, I said "small accomplishments") and I put a good dent in my email inbox.

Things I did not do at all: Work. Write. Read fiction. I would've liked to read, but I suspect I would've just fallen asleep again. It's the failure to get any work done that stings, though; I probably needed the day off, but ugh.

I feel like some of the day is unaccounted for, but really I think that's just the amount of time that vanished into clearing out a bunch of links I'd favorited on Twitter, which is in keeping with the sense that my brain never quite engaged today. :/

We have a rainfall warning for tonight, and sometime in the last hour the rain started in earnest; I can hear it on the window, which is pleasant but not as lovely as hearing it on a rooftop (which our place doesn't allow for).

Hopefully it'll wash a ton of snow away. We live on a loop, and the stretch of road linking the loop to the main street beyond is still over a third full of snow, although the drain and fire hydrant are plowed out (and the path carved to them through the snow encroaching on the street is somehow more imposing to me than the snow itself). So walking to and from the bus stop involves basically walking down the middle of the road and hoping no drivers turn off the main street too fast to look and see if anyone's walking there. -_-

Recently read: an advance copy of Cory Doctorow's Walkaway which I enjoyed -- talky like always with Doctorow but ~400 pages of "yeah this feels like a plausible future that I could belong in" with a lot of camaraderie and tradecraft. In a similar vein: "The Revolution, Brought to You by Nike", a short story by Andrea Phillips.

Also:

Chapters: 14/14
Fandom: Harry Potter - J. K. Rowling
Rating: Mature
Warnings: No Archive Warnings Apply
Relationships: Draco Malfoy/Harry Potter, Hermione Granger/Ron Weasley, Neville Longbottom/Ginny Weasley
Summary:

Seven years out from the war, Harry learns the hard truth of old history: it’s never quite as far behind you as you thought.



Heartwarming, funny, great unreliable narrator, touching.

I'm listening to some Decemberists and I listened to the most recent series of John Finnemore's Souvenir Programme with joy.

Just saw Get Out tonight -- I rarely see horror movies and it will take me a while to calm down from this one! Funny, scary, thought-provoking, good pacing. I feel justified in my decision to watch it and feel a renewed will to chase down and watch Keanu.

I've now seen the first episode of Jane the Virgin and am a bit miffed that I didn't hear earlier that it would be particularly appealing to Arrested Development fans; I intend to catch up, albeit slowly.

I just finished my second read-through of Ishiguro's Never Let Me Go.It's a wonderful book, and in the light of current political events, breaks my heart.

I went back and read the reviews it got when it was first published. So many were superior and casually dismissive. We could afford to be dismissive of dystopias, back then.

At any rate, it's a book that should be read, loved and wept over.

Scott and I went out to the bank around 11:00 yesterday morning to transfer some money from Cordelia’s account to ours. After that, we picked up food at Plum Market, pizza for him and a spinach pie for me. The weather was really nice, so we stopped by the science and nature center to recapture all of the portals there.

The walking wasn’t particularly good for my Achille’s tendon, but it was so very nice to be out in warm weather. I can tell that I’ve lost a lot of ground in terms of my ability to walk.

During the afternoon, we watched Arrival which I’d gotten from the library and finished a Netflix DVD that had been sitting with about fifteen minutes left on it for a week. Cordelia was annoyed that we watched Arrival without her. It hadn’t occurred to me that she might want to see it.

Cordelia went out to spend time with her friends in the evening, so Scott and I got carry out dinner from Palm Palace which is a place she doesn’t enjoy. I got lentil soup and the lamb saute which turned out not to be the dish I thought it was. It wasn’t bad, but it wasn’t what I had wanted. Scott got a chicken schwarma plate and hummus.

We listened to an audiobook until Cordelia was ready to come home.

My cold is much worse than it was. I’m not at all happy about that. I can still sleep lying down (as long as I take Sudafed), but even when I’m upright things feel not right in my throat and chest.

Goals for the weekend:

--Sleep.

--DO NOT catch whatever illness hit [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose like a ton of bricks today. (Pleasepleaseplease let it just be a[nother] cold; we got flu shots, but you never know. >.<)

--Adapt as much of the final Maid-sama! volume as possible. The last ten pages or so of the first half are due this Monday [see also: kind and understanding editor!], and while the second half of the volume isn't due until the week after, a) I have a whole 'nother rewrite due that week too and b) we're still catching up at Casual Job, so AFAIK I'm working there Monday and Tuesday (at least).

(Imagine lots of sparkles and hearts around that "FINAL VOLUME", because holy crap is this series wordy. So wordy. I will not miss the horrifying amount of work it entails.)

--Catch up on The 100 (two episodes) and put as big a dent as possible into the second half of The Good Place season 1 (finishing it, ideally, but it depends somewhat on [dreamwidth.org profile] scruloose since we're watching it together).

--Start reading A Conjuring of Light. (I finished both Final Girls and Wishful Drinking tonight.)

--Words?????? Make some???? This is a thing I can do???

Hm. Twice in the last week, things I’ve posted to DW have failed to crosspost to LJ. My most recent entry didn’t.

It’s not that DW is trying to crosspost and failing; when I go to edit those posts, the crosspost box isn’t checked even though it’s supposed to be the default for my posts and usually isn’t something I need to pay attention to. I’ve been able to edit the posts to get them to crosspost, but that’s something I shouldn’t have to do. I worry that I won’t notice something not crossposting.

Is anyone else having a similar problem?

I slept badly last night. I definitely have a cold of some sort. I’m keeping the symptoms under control with Sudafed, but it affected my sleep. I spent a good portion of the night rapidly cycling between being too warm and being too cold. By 'rapidly,' I mean no more than a few seconds at a time in either state. I didn’t have a fever (and still don’t), so I have no idea what that was about. I went in and out of dreaming that I could make myself feel better if I could just get through this list of— Well, I don’t remember what it was a list of. I just remember that I kept having to backtrack and do things over again.

I didn’t get Scott’s presents wrapped. I feel bad about that. He says it’s okay, but I know he likes opening things. I also didn’t get to answering emails. I’m not sure what I’m going to get done today because Scott’s home. I want to be adaptable to whatever he wants to do.

I didn’t feel like I could go forward with any of my current writing projects last night, so I wrote something that I don’t actually intend to finish for an ancient Weiss Kreuz prompt (it might be from the now vanished anonymous kink meme, but I don’t remember for sure). I’ve got about 2500 words of very nasty villain POV that doesn’t actually go anywhere and may or may not be in character for anyone involved.

The big difficulty I run into is wanting to write in the evenings and not being able to because Cordelia wants to cuddle. If she didn’t read everything on my screen, it wouldn’t be such a big deal, but I really don’t want her reading my darkfic rough drafts. I don’t want to lose the cuddling time. I really don’t. But I find myself itching to open a document and start typing.

I think I need to weed my list of prompts/things I might write some day. I’ve got 117 things on there, and I’m not going to write most of them. A lot of them are requests for exchanges where I’m interested in writing the fandom but don’t have any definite ideas and don’t know the potential recipients. I think I’m going to cut back to just the ones that are more definite in my head or that are for people I actually know. That’s likely to at least cut the list in half. Which will still mean that the list is full of things I’ll never write, but there will be things that I actually might start some day.

...are insane. Congratulations if you're the Whitest of People, as you're probably safe from border control harassment for now. Anyone else, regardless of the ethnicity(ies) or race(s) they consider or actually know themselves to be, is at risk of deportation.

There's no way to break out figures on how many people this will throw into utter panic or despair, but it's safe to say tens of millions have become human bull's eyes, at serious risk of getting stopped, asked for papers, but without them, getting arrested, then without due process, dumped over the border into Mexico to be formally deported later on.

100 miles from the US border is "the border" for deportation purposes, so on top of how greatly the pool of deportables has been expanded - you simply have to not look exactly white or be slightly darker and not be able to produce papers on the spot to get arrested and sent off to Mexico - because of the 100 mile delineation, entire states around the country are border control units now.

If you thought it was "just Mexicans" or "just" the actual border being monitored, splash some cold water on your face and try to wake up. This is Nazi Germany-style "show us papers or GTFO" with the main difference that Jews, since they're of mostly Northern European origin, are harder to tease apart from "whites" than Hispanic-looking people are, which in this country will save the Whitest of People from getting stopped or asked for papers - for now. But we all know where this is going; hunting Mexicans is just this regime's little warm-up act, and I mean really little, so don't say I didn't warn y'all.

Because who knows; I might not be around by then to even remind you that I did.

Any plans to hinder the worst parts of this or any other order through the courts might soon be made moot by this Florida representative's bill to nullify our state and federal judiciaries. The bill states only a 60% super-majority is needed to override anything the courts decide, so don't look to our judicial branch for help, as it might soon be unable to function - and all this with Cheetolini's express blessing.

Can't say we should've seen it coming - but yeah, we should have seen it coming. We all knew the dictator when we saw him, even waaaaaay back when he announced his run for office by declaring, among other things, that Mexicans are rapists; it was just a matter of extrapolating downward from there.

Lastly, after learning Cambridge Analytica won the election for El Orango more handily than Russian interference did, I forgive all but the most hateful of his supporters in the same spirit of comprehension as someone who once declared, "Forgive them, Father, for they know not what they do". Read these words very carefully: I think they were brainwashed, I think they were brainwashed, I think they were brainwashed - because after reading that, there's nothing else I can think.

1. Cut my fingernails.

2. Asked rental office bosses about getting a week off in late June. They said that should be okay, so... I may actually get to Cass Lake this year!!! \o/

more items under the cut )

13. Got to work rewriting my Cotton Candy Bingo fic, as per my realization that the characters needed to be nicer in general. I have managed to salvage and reuse a bunch of existing dialogue, just tweaked a bit so everyone's friendly rather than annoyed, and I have also tweaked a bit of scene-setting so there is now an obvious physical way to conclude the fic when I get there, instead of having it vaguely peter off into awkward silence. :)

I need to process it, first. My mind, like most minds do, works like a series of input/outputs, with the perhaps crucial difference that quick reactions often don't serve me well (but sometimes do, surprising everyone, including myself). Imagine a stack of five coffee filters resting about a 1/4 of an inch apart throughout my brain.

Input goes in the top and hits the first filter. This one's capable of sorting out only the most primitive, highly emotional of reactions, so when it comes to most of the news, I've learned to sympathize with but otherwise ignore what flows through this one. More input comes in. More top layer/primitive output. Gah. OK. I ignore this, too.

Eventually information starts bubbling down to a second filter. As facts and opinions drip through, patterns - links between one story and another, which can be on different topics altogether - start to form, and I start weighing and contrasting things against my beliefs, instincts, feelings, thoughts, and things I understand to be true on a rational level. This is the point where I'll start seeing some of the dots not connected by the media, and feel disappointment at the sheer crush of information overwhelming us to the point what's being reported can no longer cohere.

But I want cohesion. Because part of my mind - even in dreams - is focused almost non-stop on meta-analysis. I don't want to just report the news. I want to understand it, know what it means, what it's leading to, and what we might do about it. Until I can come up with that - or, failing that, at least come up with a sarcastic-sounding way to handwave it off because of the pure fuckery it is - I sometimes can't write at all.

This leads to an attitude of caution, because I don't like jumping in with an unfounded opinion. I like having them as much as anybody - my locked posts can attest to that - but that some of the predictions I made are coming true as I write this is sort of scaring me, on the one hand, and making me wish anyone - anyone - reading those posts at the time (I'm thinking of the last year or so) had taken me seriously, on the other. I come at some of those posts from very personal places, so I can see how others can't tease out what's true from what's just me, say, personalizing the political, but some of it's coming true, either way.

Which is unfortunate, and maybe sort of annoying, if you're not directly affected by what's going on. And no, this is not an apologia for those posts; this is rather my defense of them. But I would rather have been wrong! Believe me...as you know who would say.

In some ways, I won't be directly affected by too much of it, yet it bothers me as much as things that can or will, because this regime rides us like a wet slide at an amusement park: Wheeeeee, down we go! Yeah baby, let's go straight to hell and meet the devil and make Mexico pay for it later!

They do it one declaration, order, memo and act of Congress at a time, and enjoy holding us captive to their primitive base and campaign promises they swear must be kept, lest the base riot or not re-elect their loser asses. To paraphrase 1984, it's always the boot in your face. Power for the sake of power, pain for the sake of increasing their power. If you ignore the seemingly smaller things that don't affect you, how do you stop the train once it picks up enough speed to run you over?

To get back to where I was before I segued, so news and information has now hit my third filter. Three down, two to go. I'm now operating out of caution, not wanting to jump too soon, continuing to learn but staying non-reactionary while I wait for things to bubble down. Sometimes this process never finishes. If I can't come to a decision on *how* to present some bit of news, oftentimes I just won't. Fortunately other people on DW seem to do a glorious job of that when I can't or won't.

Until recently - due mostly to the sped-up timing of this regime - my decisions on what to write have gotten faster. I was more or less keeping up during the worst chaos, but then their timing slowed down, which threw me off because I was getting used to making decisions on how to frame things almost by the hour. You get good at something and then - without changing course - they slow up the timing so they - not you - can regroup.

I thrive not on creating chaos but on finding and organizing it, so the fact that they've slowed up some doesn't delight me because it throws my five filters off and they're going to do the same shit I've been saying they're going to do anyway, it's just going to take longer to get official word on it so I can figure out how to connect it to any other outrages they're perpetuating.

Anyway, as hours and sometimes days roll by I keep on reading and listening and thinking, and inevitably what I learn - even if I read about a hundred things in a sitting - starts hitting a fourth filter, where I go over any patterns and oversights made by the media yet again. Are they real? Are they patterns? Are there important enough oversights to mention? From there the jump to my fifth filter - if I make it - is easy and inevitable: how I will frame this for others to read and understand? Should I?

Oh, hell yeah. Doesn't mean I'm happy about it, though. This is the Sad!dest administration I've ever seen. And this particular Congress? Unfairly elected through the flimflam of gerrymandering, because they can't get in any other way because no majority wants them, so they don't try to anymore - which is the reason you see so many protests at town halls, out in the street, and anywhere else people tend to gather to point out - if not in so many words - that these essentially self-elected destroyers can pretty much go get fucked.

I discovered last night that I have serious difficulty opening the bathroom door because gripping the knob is very painful. The knob is kind of stubborn about turning, and the door sticks a bit. This is only an issue when we have company, so last night was the first time I’d needed to deal with that in months.

I’m also thinking that Scott is right that I need a new lamp. I don’t want to lose the one I’ve got because Mom made it for me, but I have problems with the switch because it needs turning. A lot of the time, I can manage because it’s such a brief thing, but… It does hurt.

I’ve got one load in the washer and one in the dryer. The bed is half made (the blankets are in the wash). I think the next step is the sandwich for Cordelia. That will take less than two minutes. (I make sandwiches for Scott and Cordelia because it takes me less than five minutes to make both sandwiches. Scott and Cordelia both take more than ten minutes to make a single sandwich. I have no idea what they do to take that long.) I think the dishwasher should be next followed by calling UHS.

My left Achille’s tendon has really been hurting the last few days. It’s been very nice outside, in the 50s and 60s, and I very much want to take a walk. I just know that I wouldn’t make it very far before the pain was too much, and then I wouldn’t be able to do anything the rest of the day. That’s not been an option all week and won’t be today, either. Tomorrow, I will almost certainly walk too much because Scott has the day off (it’s his birthday) and will want to do things.

All of the laundry has also made my hands hurt a lot. My right hand was angry enough to make sleeping difficult last night which is highly unusual. I slept badly last night, generally. I was too warm, and my sinuses complained a lot. When I’m upright, I feel fine and don’t think I have a cold at all, but when I lie down, suddenly, I feel like I have a bad cold. I can’t think of anything in the bed that I might be allergic to.

We had three friends over last night. We talked about a game Scott wants to run in the Firefly universe. I’m kind of generally eh on Firefly, but everyone else is really enthusiastic. The game system will be Cortex Plus which I don’t know a lot about. We only had one copy of the book last night, and I let other people look at it since it lives here and is mine any other time.

I only have to do two loads of laundry today. I’m kind of hoping that I can get all of the chores done quickly and then nap. It might happen. Maybe.

To do list )
