I Has Did It

Should you decide you want to check out my fanfic, I now have two sticky posts (or, in the case of Live Journal which, for reasons unknown, only allows one sticky at a time, so I went with 1 sticky and one future-dated post) with links to all my fiction and meta. Go, me!

Now I need to, you know, get busy on the next Hearts and Moons chapter, Zeno's paradox notwithstanding. Argh.

Still, master lists ... go, me!

Moar Stuff

1. I was unfriended the morning after I made my last post; a brief email conversation with the person in question made it appear as if my comments about the Puppies had done it, although I could be wrong. Given that this was when the Puppies and their friends were licking their wounds ... it doesn't surprise me. The person was reasonably polite in the brief email exchange; they said they were tired of reading comments about people they knew but that the commenters didn't. I understand the emotion. However, having friends myself who I am aware have been, not to put too fine a point on it, dead wrong about things, and who probably deserve to be called on those things, the argument "You don't know them like I do" has less strength than this person thought it did.  tl;dr: it was the person's loss, not mine. 

2. I finally got my Green Card renewal application done online, and paid online. That's not the end of it, of course; I still have to have a new picture taken, and the pics have to meet the rather arcane measurements required by the immigration section of the Department of Homeland Security, and I still have to get an appointment to go in and get my biometrics done (biometrics, in this case, meaning nothing more elaborate than my fingerprints, or thumbprint.) But at least the process is underway. Go, me. 

3. My current boss's final day is tomorrow. They're having a little get together for him down at the George Orwell Memorial Building tomorrow afternoon. I may have enough done to go down there, but if I don't get down there, that's OK; he's trying to set something up for his staff outside, possibly two weeks down the line. And he wants to invite my previous fantastic uber-boss; that would be fantastic. 

4. Work today sucked so very much that at one point I was in tears. I have recovered from that point. And I've been able to actually undertake a post for the first time - again - in days, and I'm listening to jazz. These things go a long way toward helping me forget Teh Suck. 

Right now, however, I'm dead tired, so I'm going to toddle off to bed, without telling you any number of things I'd undoubtedly meant to tell you but which I've forgotten. There were the Totally Unexpected Cosplayers wandering down a totally non-cosplay-type neighborhood street the other day, for example ... ah, but my bed is calling to me. All my love, my dears, and I hope you all have a wonderful Friday.

Keeping Up with Keeping Up

Short, and probably not completely sweet:

The Hugos. Kudos to Noah Ward, and pointing and jeering (albeit, believe it or not, with a great deal of sadness) and the Sad and Rabids, who have been involved in a frothing and gnashing of teeth-type declarations that "Our Loss Proclaims Our Win!" and/or "Our Loss Proclaims that The Tiny Clique of Evil Anti-Democratic SJW's Somehow Gathered Enough Votes to Beat Us despite us asking everyone we could think of to game the system wait, that's right out, we did not say that" - or possibly both, because ... because Puppies.


Stupidity in real lifeCollapse )Fun with coding, sort ofCollapse )

And finally, I've started re-reading one of my favorite C.J. Cherryh series, the Chanur series. I had forgotten how much I loved all the characters, and the world-building; the hani, the mahe ... and, for providing really fascinating villains, the kif. And of course the methane breathers ... I'm into the fourth book and still loving it.

So - how's by everyone else?

Also -
I promise I'll get back and respond to folks in earlier posts, and try to catch up with everyone else.

Birthdays to Start Off the Week

Happy Birthday, [personal profile] sahiya !  I hope that life in the new city goes swimmingly, that room mates become truly enjoyable and not a problem; that this year is an extra good one for you — you deserve it! I always enjoy talking with you, and hope to do so more this year! (Wow - many exclamation marks!

Happy Birthday, too, to
hawkmothwho's been absent recently, sadly. I hope she had an excellent birthday, and I hope to see you around, and read your thoughts and your fiction again soon!

Dept. of Beautiful People

Wanna See A Match Burn Twice?

That was what Bob said to me shortly after he'd met me. He was a bartender at The Barbarossa at the time, and I was already entranced with him, despite having known him less than a week. I was sitting at the bar, late at night, after the live music had stopped. Perhaps someone had put a dime in the jukebox; I can't remember. But I remember him pulling the joke on me, much to my horrified surprise. I also remember how horrified he was, in turn, when he realized that he'd just pulled the joke on someone who didn't know enough to move her arm away in time.

Sort of a weird thing to start a birthday wishes post with, I suppose. Perhaps I should have started with the story about him drooling beer down the front of his shirt as a piece of guerrilla bartender theater? No?

Then let me follow with why I remember those things, from way back at the beginning - it was because he always knew how to laugh, and how to make other people laugh. And it was because his sense of humor was so sideways that it invigorated me, and reminded me not to be so sour and dour. He made me laugh, and that was, if not lifesaving for me, then certainly a priceless gift at a time when I
wasn't too apt to smile.

Over the years, he taught me about more than just when to laugh at fate.

He taught me how good and patient a man he is, as he became the full time parent to our son.

He taught me how talented he was, and he taught me how to entertain people.

He taught me about rock and roll. He taught me about jazz, and made me listen to A Love Supreme, and now decades later, he doesn't have to force me to do that, because I want to listen to it myself.

He taught me about living outside my comfort zone in other ways; sushi, and foreign films (at least some of them), and anime, and long late-night talks about whether or not "Is There A God" wasn't the wrong question to ask about life.

He taught me about persisting in the face of pain, and fear, and uncertainty, and about how important it is to talk to the one you love when you need help.

Much of what I am today is because of him. I am so grateful to know him, and to celebrate his birthday with him.

Love you, President of the World!

Many Happy Returns of the Day, Past and Present

Back on Aug. 6, shanna_s had a birthday, and I hope it was a good one. May you have a productive year, full of writing, music, travel and enjoyment of friends!

Just two days ago, on Aug. 7, 
[personal profile] the_arc5  celebrated her birthday as well. I don't know if you're around LJ/Dreamwidth much these days, but I always enjoy it when you pop by, or post; I hope you had a wonderful birthday!

Another long-ago person, ellycatinoz, shares her birthday with my BB - I hope her day was happy, and I hope she was surrounded by family and friends as she celebrated.

Dept. of Brass, Pure Brass

Ballsy Advertising

Tales from a condo board president: like many condo buildings with parking lots, our building has a contract with a towing company, to deal with non-approved people parking in the lot.

We're in Chicago, and our contract is with Lincoln Towing Services. If you're from Chicago, you know Lincoln Towing Services as a company of towtruck-driving sharks, cruising through alleys and streets, looking for un-permitted cars to tow. Its history is so replete with tales of towtruck drivers' voracious hunger for towing, and those drivers' lightning quick tow action, that it's become legendary.

How legendary? This legendary:






Yesterday, one of our unit residents who was temporarily using a rental car, and who forgot to put a permit in her window that one fateful Tuesday, got towed. Although it was, ultimately, her fault, I told her I'd try to convince Lincoln Towing to reimburse all or part of the $218.50 it cost her to free the car from its pound. I've put in the call, although I don't expect anyone to call me back; if they do, I don't expect them to reimburse anything.

That's not the point of this post.

When I was put on hold during my first call, guess what music played while I waited?

You damn betcha.

I've got to admire the chutzpah.

Happy birthday, 
[personal profile] tardis_stowaway ! I hope the day was good for you (neither too hot, nor too cold), filled with friends, and completely enjoyable as a way to launch your coming year. It's been a pleasure to know you, and here's hoping we see more of each other around Teh Intarwebz!

Dept. of Weather


Books, Candles, and Hand Held  Fans

We've been without power for more than two hours now; I wouldn't mind so much if I didn't have a half cooked chicken dish sitting in the slow cooker, and if it wasn't 85-90 degrees outside now. We still have some cool, because we've pulled the curtains and some of the AC coolth remains, but neither Bob nor I do well with heat, so I'm rooting for ComEd to fix whatever transformer blew out with the intense storm that took down trees and, sadly, killed at least one person in the greater Chicago  area.

Hmm. I guess being without power for a measly 2.5 hours is no big thing, compared to at least one family's tragedy.

But I hope it's still OK for me to hope strongly for the return of power?

if not, we have lots of candles, and books. And if we get too hot, we can always head for a library or a restaurant.

I've watched it far too many times now, and every time I do, I'm afflicted with a huge grin, one so big that I understand what they mean when they say "a grin split my face."

Everyone may have seen it before, but perhaps you'll enjoy it one more time with me. And eaweek? There be some Hiddles dancing in there; as soon as I saw it, I thought of you. Heh.

Dept. of Life in the Circus

 ... is a Never-Ending DEElite

So the podiatrist says it is indeed mostly likely a stress fracture: "We'll treat it like one until I'm proven otherwise." That would happen only if the MRI I had on the foot last night does the proving. She pointed out that the X-ray my GP ordered wouldn't have ID'd any stress fracture anyway, because it was taken only 15 days after the pain started, and apparently stress fractures don't show on X-ray film for at least 21 days. So I learned a new thing. 

And therefore?

Fashion Forward Footwear. Yay. (Or actually, YAY!! At least I've probably got something that can be dealt with. I love known quantities!)

Dept. of Chemistry

Ah, the Magic of Cookery

Well, I was feeling rather glum a little earlier today - quite momentarily, I assure you, but glum nonetheless. I started a post that was gazing drearily on humanity's apparently matchless ability to bring an end to the Anthropocene ... and then I remembered that I meant to make an Apple Harvest Cake today. It's a recipe of my mother's and grandmother's that involves apples and cinnamon and far too many eggs and a great deal of sugar and oil (it's a Second World War-era recipe, for all that it was profligate with the eggs, so oil it was, rather than the fats that were necessary for the war effort, or the dairy goods that were needed for Our Boys at the Front) ...

The result is that, while it baked, filling the house with a perfectly wonderful aroma, I exercised, and then we had an excellent supper of leftovers, and the cake came out just as we finished supper. We will have cake and ice cream after the first hour of anime watching.

And the idea of monologueing about the end of the Anthropocene just flew out the window. At least for now.

I Aten't Dead, Part Deux

1. Pluto - I love living in the future. I watched the press conference live yesterday, and clapped along with everyone else. w00t!!1!
2. Still have to go to a largely useless editorial meeting down at the Dark Tower's secondary location in near-downtown.  (It's not completely though, I must admit, but given that I sort of half-expect a verbal throw-down between my new uberboss and my Guild unit chair - you all remember Crazy Union Puppy, right? - I'm not expecting it to be pleasant.)
3. A few more words on Chapter 25.
4. Will be getting an MRI on my left foot, courtesy of my awesome rheumatologist. I love that woman.
5. And now I have to dash!

Dept. of Weekend's End

A Good Weekend

With the exception of my sore left foot (short version: did something to it back on June 27. It's not a stress fracture, but there's some sort of cyst on one of the bones, I'm going to a podiatrist too many days from now, my body, what a laff riot, blah-blah-fishcakes), this weekend has been a good one. Spent time with Bob, got a few hundred words more done on Chapter 25, made a blueberry pie and entirely too many stuffed poblano peppers for supper today. Well, we have lots of stuffed peppers for lunch, etc., on Monday and Tuesday. Watched some more anime, and came to the sad determination that this latest season's offerings are not nearly as strong as last season's. Watched two more episodes of Defiance and continue to love it. 

Tomorrow? I have an appointment with my gastroenterologist; the next day, I have one with my rheumatologist. I am such an old fart. 

Still, the weather was lovely, I got to listen to an album of piano rolls created by Scott Joplin, and that was lovely, too. I guess I'm going into the week as refreshed as I could ever be.

Dept. of Memes

Five Things That Make Me Happy

mack_the_spoon tagged me with this meme, and though I'm not normally very good at memes, or indeed all that interested in them, this one attracted me because it's simple - I am a simple creature - and it was a very positive sort of thing. I do love many things, so let's see if I can tell you about five things that make me happy. 

1. BB. He is, quite simply, the best thing in my life. It may seem disrespectful to call him the best thing, but what I mean by that is that he does so much for me, and has taught me so much, and has been there so often for me ... he is my best friend; he's my voice of reason when I need one, and that's oh, so often; he's the one who kills the cockroaches, he's the one who tells me I look good when I know I'm looking seedy, he's the one who knows I need a hug. He's the one who tells me, who convinces me, that things are going to be alright. He's the one who introduced me to jazz (and truly nurtured my inherent love of music in general), and Firesign Theater, and martinis. He knows my sense of humor, and puts up with my lack of humor when I'm in particularly dour moods. He is the best.

2. Personal letters that come by mail. Whether they're handwritten or typed up, getting a real letter in the mail takes me back to the days when getting news from friends who lived far away was a special treat. The days you'd wait between the time you mailed your own letter - which you'd carefully written with as much news, thoughts, meanderings, worries and joys as you could possibly do before your fingers tired or your typewriter jammed - and the time you got an answer, with any luck as jammed packed in answer, were interminable. And the day the letter arrived, oh, it was wonderful!

3. Music. I grew up with music; my Nana and my mother sang, and sang beautifully. I had piano lessons for years, and have always regretted giving them up. I love almost every kind of music, although rock and roll gets my blood flowing the most, and jazz talks to my head and heart almost as much as I've grown older. Even music I thought I didn't like, like various iterations of country, or were bored by, like whatever folk is, I learned to appreciate. Music is language I can share with everyone, and it's a language BB helped me get better at. Without music, my inner life would be an echoing, empty chamber. 

4. Cooking and writing. Yes, definitely cheating here by putting both things in the same boat, but they are both ways I can create, and I love that. Cooking is a way I can carry on my Nana's traditions in the kitchen, and those of my mother's too, so that's one reason. It's creation with short term gratification, but with challenges (as anyone who has ever wrestled with making a good pie crust can tell you.) It's also tied in with the joy of feeding family and friends, which of course is also tied in to ego gratification, but that's not necessarily a bad thing. Writing is far more difficult for me, whether it's news and feature writing, or fiction writing. But I could no more stop writing, as slow as I am, than I could stop walking or talking. This happiness comes from my fiction writing, and it comes at least in part from knowing that I'm good at it, and that I can create stories that people love. I doubt that I will ever return to writing original fiction, but writing fan fiction makes me more happy than I've ever been when writing other things. 

5. Fandom. By that, I mean many things. I mean the traditional science fiction fandom that I discovered in 1977 when I went to my first World Science Fiction Convention, and which led me to a circle of music-oriented fans in Minneapolis in the 1980s and early 1990s. Traditional fandom was my first real intellectual and emotional home apart from my family. It was the place where I discovered that other people really loved the books I loved, and who didn't think I was weird, mockable, or bullyable, because of it. (Even my family, who indulged my reading, looked at it askance). Bless traditional fandom forever. And now, I am a part of online fandom, which is a child of traditional fandom, but who, like all children, has grown into a creature all its own. I have friends, and friendly acquaintances, all across this globe, people who helped me hang on to happiness, who encouraged my writing, who challenged my mind, who have been wonderful to read and to interact with for the past nine-plus years. You are all part of my life, and you enrich it so much. Thank you!

And let's see, I
 should tag people, although it's definitely a voluntary thing, especially if you've done this before. So ... [personal profile] a_phoenixdragon , [personal profile] penlessej , [personal profile] elisi , [personal profile] jjpor , and [personal profile] ljgeoff  - tag, you're it!

Honorable mentions: Doctor Who, especially Nine, Eleven, and River; Japanese curry and croquettes; Chicago; anime.

I'm so sorry I forgot your birthday - so, to a fellow anime fan I say Happy After-Birthday. It sounds like you had a good one, and I hope you enjoy the rest of this year as well, with no problems from siblings or other relatives. I'm looking forward to when we can squee, gasp, and fangirl together over Doctor Who!

To Laurel, With Bacon

Happy Birthday, only one day late, to 
[personal profile] laurel . She's one of the people who first introduced me to the very concept of the internet, and the very concept of blogging. In fact, I think she was the person who introduced me to the word "blogging."  She is smart and funny and kind. She loves fandom, music, Norway cats, television, and the bacon dispensers that sprouted in public places a couple of decades ago.* She was part of what made Minnesota science fiction/fantasy fandom sparkle for me.

I haven't traveled north to Minnesota for well over a decade now, having generally gafiated from RL fandom, with only the occasional exception. Thanks to the Internet, I don't feel like I've left that part of my life behind. And I don't know how many times I've gotten online, and thought about Laurel, and how much of a trail-blazer she was — and how amazing a person she is. Here's to you! I hope your birthday was awesome in all the best senses of the word, and I hope this coming year is filled with hope, and joy, and stability, and cats. 

And, of course, bacon.




* Bacon dispensers. They're a thing. And I love [personal profile] laurel for introducing me to them. Ah, if only they really existed ....

Dept. of Lovely Things

Oh Beautiful, For Spacious Skies

This country is a mess. We are a mess.
We are a fractious, miserable, small-minded people. We fight with each other, over stupid things. We cheat each other, for shameless reasons. We kill each other, for shameful - unforgivable - reasons.
We despoil our land and air and water, because it's easier to do that than to change our ways.
We eye other nations with suspicion and disdain, even as our power impacts those nations. 
We are, inescapably, a mess. 

But this country is also wonderful. We, as a people, are also wonderful.
We are wonderful for one simple reason. 
We hate being a mess. 
We fight ourselves, we battle our worst impulses.
We refuse to let our government screw up without at least trying to hold its collective feet to the fire.
We march in the street to say that black lives do matter.
We insist that anyone who chooses to marry in the eyes of the law have the lawful right to marry.
We fight in the courts so that women have the right to choose their reproductive destinies.
We reach out to each other, despite our fear of difference. We struggle past our fear of hijabs, yarmulkes, crosses, Darwin, you name it.
We look to other nations with curiosity, respect, a desire to help.
We try to clean up after ourselves.
We try to love each other as we love ourselves.

We fail much of the time. We despair.
But we don't give up. 

This country may be a mess, but it's one of the most beautiful messes it has ever been my honor to try to clean up. 

Happy 239th birthday. We'll try to do right by you.
