Everyone okay? How much furniture repair will you need? Bandages for bleeding fingers from exasperated tweets? Hugs?

This poem is spillover from the August 2, 2016 Poetry Fishbowl. It was inspired by the "gathering courage" square in my 8-1-16 card for the Survival Bingo fest. It has been sponsored by Anthony & Shirley Barrette. This poem belongs to the Officer Pink thread of the Polychrome Heroics series.

Rough night last night - legs were all twitchy.

Didn't get to sleep for as long as I needed to this morning, too many stupid interruptions. God I hate my alarm clock. Also my backup phone alarm.

I felt like I was getting my period last night, but it didn't happen.

Feeling quite cheerful otherwise.

Hayfever now mostly reduced. Suspect rain has done its job, maybe even to the point of internal snotty mudslides, but hopefully not.

Had Salade Nicoise for dinner last night, and again for breakfast. Yum, also a very tasty way to poke in more vegies.

~~~

Would love to shower and dress but homecare worker is due any minute, so I'm in shambly pyjamas limbo.

The latest in the Neverending apartment drama is that I've been sent a bill for my next rent and utilities that shows me as still owing utilities and the late fee for the bill that wasn't paid late from last month.



It's like they WANT to make sure no one wants to renew their leases.

Video
Finished Lexx finally. It was...brutally bad. I would say if you have any interest in the show at all, watch the first season only. It's structured as 4 movies that actually have an overarching plot and isn't just complete cheezeball sexploitation occasionally set to softporn music. Alternately if you just want to see what made the show what it was, watch any random 2nd season episode. Seasons 3 and 4 are completely skippable.

Plus a couple of Futurama and Kids In The Hall for laughs.

Books
Have completed my read-through of that Penguin Anthology of Canadian Humour, for which I posted a summary earlier in the week. I picked up 3 books from the library who are authors in the collection. We'll see how they are, and whether I can work through them in 3 weeks' time or not.

Audio
Still on break as my old Nexus 7 (2012) will no longer hold a charge, and I don't have the other portable device I own set up for audio playback yet. Soon, maybe. Today (with my laptop) I did listen to Movie Sign With The Mads talk about L.A. Confidential which has put that film along with Chinatown on my list of things to watch this week.

Video Games
Guild Wars 2 only this past week, and not very much of it. Going through a phase of "not interested in video games," I think.

I don't have it in me to actually watch the presidential debate, but I'm following tags on tumblr and it sounds like it's going exactly how I expected it to go.



Almost willing to put money on all the media saying Trump was dynamic and passionate and kept getting caught up in the moment, and Hillary being condescending and both Trying Too Hard and just not lika le enough. "Almost" because, I mean, they might actually catch up with reality this time.

It's not a game.
It's not a popularity contest.
It's not about whose clothes look better, or whether his wife's tailored-to-her-body dress is more fashionable than her classic pantsuit. The skin-tight dress is meant to distract you from what is going on.
It's not about unproven slanders, but about proven lies.

It's about truth, knowledge of how things get done, skill and experience to do them well.
It's about relationships among states at home and among other countries we deal with.
It's about peacebuilding, not warmaking.
It's about who has the experience to govern wisely, to follow the Constition in all that is done, to expand liberties to those who are treated unequally when the law requires equal treatment.
It's about getting bills passed in Congress, not shoved in a corner so nothing is done.
It's about repaving roads, rebuilding bridges, repairing infrastructure left undone while the Republican party in power did nothing.
It's about caring enough for the American population to provide health care and compassionate leave and family leave for all Americans -- something that is ordinary in other developed countries.
It's about preserving public lands as public lands, not exploting them for money or selling sacred sites to foreign exploiters.
It's about filling all the federal judicial seats that are empty -- more than 90 at last count -- so that the courts can deal more quickly and equitably with the heavy case loads.
It's about having someone in office who will nominate Supreme Court Justices who will preserve our rights and rule fairly with a thought to the future -- which means this election is about the next 30+ years.
It's about Americans being able to tell the difference between truth and lies, between the real thing and the flash trash.
It's about keeping companies from moving overseas or out of the country, keeping jobs here, keeping industries here. It's about renewing the unions, which protect the rights of workers.

It's about our lives. Nothing less. Our lives, our fortunes (and the lack of them) and our sacred honor.

Think about it.

Three disjointed thoughts about star wars that have been sitting in my drafts for a lot of months:

1. given the way the original trilogy is really good at showing mourning reactions from people wrt to deaths (or even believed-to-be-deaths), especially chewie wrt han, I now understand ppl's reactions to han's death.

2. I am belatedly fascinated by how in the original trilogy both vader and luke have this massive hang-up over the idea of killing their own family member (father/son), but kylo ren DOES THE THING. He fails to be vader in so many interesting ways!

3.apparently star wars is one of those fandoms where EVEN AFTER watching canon I still need to read lots of fic to begin to, like, grok it? I dunno, maybe it's that fandom has developed all these elaborate headcanons over the years to explain some of the more opaque things in the movies, or maybe it's that the tie-in materials have stuff that everyone's drawing on, who knows. But I feel like everyone knows more about how stuff in the star wars universe works than I do.

[#1843] let has_same_email_as ignore +mailbox components of emails

This does a simple string equality check as before, but if
the match fails, strip out anything between + and @ and try
again before giving up.

Fixes #1843.

Even if it is hard for you to travel, you can still help campaign for Hillary Clinton. How? You can make phone calls from anywhere, even if you only have a few minutes at a time.

Ready to Make Calls: Get Started

If you are energetic and live in Los Angeles, the Clinton campaign is looking for volunteers to travel to Las Vegas every weekend between now and the election. You'll travel by bus, leaving at 5:00 a.m. and returning to Los Angeles at midnight. It's a long day. If only I had better feet... My peripheral neuropathy rules this opportunity out for me.

The debate begins in one minute.

I already have a migraine. Excuse me, I need to take a Maxalt.

 Today I made chicken verde enchiladas!  One of the women I work with was going on and on about how good her 'healthy' version of the dish was, so I am giving it a try.  I haven't been doing a lot of cooking lately, particularly not on a work night, but she said it was easy, so I am giving it a go.  My house smells wonderful right now, and I can't wait for them to be done. :)

In case anyone needs a ton of links to distract them from the debate, here, let me clear about my "miscellaneous" file for you. It's all going under a cut, and I'm afraid it's not really sorted at all. If you dive in, may you find entertaining and/or distracting things.

I've been thinking about Kaidoh/Kirihara lately. So much potential for a sparky pairing! I loved them in this scene -- I have a real weakness for back-to-back in battle.

Kaidoh and Kirihara back to back in a pillow fight

I don't know if regular scary Akaya or U-17 somewhat nicer Akaya would be better -- they are both appealing. As much as I love the back to back I would also love to see them trying to beat each other down.

Or a new captains scenario where they're both trying to be all grown up and in charge at a practice match. And then Momo and Arai lock them in the club room and set off a glitter bomb trap.

Title: She'll Never Be A Story I Make Up (You Were The One I Didn't Know Where To Stop). (On Archive Of Our Own)
Author: [personal profile] lannamichaels
Fandom: Les Miserables
Pairing: Cosette Fauchelevent/Eponine Thenardier
Rating: PG
A/N: Yet another from the "I looked at it four years later and realized it was basically done" files. This was started, eons ago, for an exchange recip who wanted Eponine/Cosette and also Caps and Pens, but this fic diverged enough from their prompts that I wrote them something else instead. This fic owes a debt to the many excellent fics in Hockey RPF from which I stole the idea of the NFL having women playing in it. The title is from Nearly a Valediction by Marilyn Hacker, which is the best.

Summary: Cosette gets drafted in the first round to the Washington Capitals. Eponine gets drafted in the fourth to the Pittsburgh Penguins and she can do this, she can totally do this.
