Dept. of Getting Back on the Damn Bike

Things I Have Done Lately

1. Obsessed over every episode of Game of Thrones, without ever watching a single episode. Yes, I've watched every scene on YouTube that YouTubers can offer me, loads of reviews and responses. No, I don't have HBO, and ... it's stupid of me. But I'm going to be so upset at the end of the season next Sunday.

2. Thrown out all the Marion Zimmer Bradley books I've had on my shelf for years. I'd thought I'd keep a couple of books of hers that were important to me because of how they shaped my love for SF&F, and for the sense of wonder they engendered in me. In the end, I couldn't keep any of them. It was a decision a long time in coming, and it was the first time in my life I have ever thrown books out. I don't believe I shall ever do it again. But for me it was the right thing to do. I couldn't stomach giving them to a second-hand store.

3. Picked up the partly empty drink cup a well-made up gym rat had left on her seat as she headed out the L train door to get to a Cubs game, handed it to her (or her friend, the even more made-up gym rat) and "asked" her to throw it away in a garbage can once she got onto the platform, since "I believe it belongs to you." She did. I am ashamed of being petty about their looks. I
should not be that way, since I support anyone's right to decorate their body in the way they see fit. I can only point to my upbringing and say it's hard to escape the attitudes I grew up experiencing when it comes to make-up. On the other hand, I am very glad I told her pick up her damn trash. Politely.

4. Became an employee of tronc. Yes, tronc. tronc. tronc.  Mother of fucking god.

5. Wrote a little more of "Hearts & Moons." Go, me.

Dept. of Musical Pimping

Wellthen

That's not a misspelling; that's the name of the band that my beloved FB plays in, writes for, and enjoys a whole lot.

He and his bandmates have been working their tails off to put together a high quality debut album. And that takes money. So, like many a millennial  band before them, they've taken to Kickstarter to get the $5,000 necessary to put it out there.

They created a very funny video explaining what they're doing.  I get a kick out of it, even after seeing it several times (possibly because Andy wrote much of it, and does the voiceover, I'm compelled to admit.) Why not take a look, and a listen? I'd tell you to look for the good looking man with the beard, but they all have beards in most of the video, so that's no help. But at the start of the video, in the still, he's the one without a beard, in the short-sleeved purple tee. (And there's a scene in the video where you see a man and a woman talking to each other in the foreground; that's him, and his beloved Emily.)

It may not be your kind of music. And there are certainly a lot more important things to put your money into these days. But if it tickles your fancy or your funny-bone, and if you'd like to help them out, I'd be delighted. And so would they.

ETA: after fighting with LJ's coding, which simply will NOT let me embed the video, despite LJ telling me it's embedded, I'll just direct everyone to the link I put in the second paragraph, which will take you directly to their web page. Sigh

ETA 2: Thanks to my beloved BB, we can actually now embed the video here, via YouTube - you still have to go to their Kickstarter page if you want to donate, though.

Dept. of Birthdays

People Were Born, Hurrah!

Along with being almost out of commission around here for the last few days, I've also forgotten to wish folks happy birthdays. 

Back on June 1, cassie_faith had a birthday; here's hoping you have a good year, with work that you like, friends, freedom from stress and time to enjoy life. 

On June 8, earlgreytea68 was another year wiser. I'm glad I know this talented writer, whose life has led her many places, and who is truly one of the good guys in fandom. Happy Birthday!

Happy Birthday, too, on June 8, to 
[personal profile] acciochocolate , who is a remarkable Who fan and a lovely person. I hope the year to come is an excellent one for you!

And finally, many happy returns of the day to 
[personal profile] livii , one of the first people I "met" in online fandom. May the coming year be full of travel, without any illness; may your boys know what a great mother they have; and may you have time to hang around LJ!

And now I have to make up for a sick day, so I'm off to the salt mines.

Title: Beer and Skittles
Author:
[personal profile] kaffyr
Characters: Melinda May, Natasha Romanov
Words: 2,005
Summary: Two old friends, with similar spectacularly lethal skill sets, walk into a bar. How Melinda took care of Natasha's watchful heart.
Author's Note: This story has been sitting, half completed, for well over a year, but I finally realized how it should end only recently. I really love both of these women, and I hope this story treats them with the respect and affection they deserve. I like to think that neither of them are beyond getting a little looped to relax. This takes place prior to "Avengers: Age of Ultron." It also follows what I believe is fanon about Natasha's age, and the results of Red Room genetic manipulation.

Dept. of Long Time, No Post

I Aten't Dead, Mostly

I was supposed to be at a new board meeting tonight, but I'm feeling like crap, and realized it was a migraine (and possibly a cold that started creeping up on me at a meeting I covered last night. So I'm more or less on the couch, feeling miserable, after eating supper, and I realized it's been almost two weeks since I actually posted anything here. So ... well ....

... I'm here.

I have a fic to post, which might go up tonight. Maybe. If I feel like it. Augh. I still have two more fandom_stocking IOUs to complete, but this isn't one of them.

I wanted to re-read a particularly powerful and well-written piece of fiction by
[personal profile] ljgeoff (hi, my dear!), but my eyes and brain aren't allowing me to do that with the care I want to lavish on it. Instead, I'll send wishes for quick healing.

I wanted to tell the story of how the remarkable
[personal profile] gerisullivan helped pass along a tradition of earrings to me, after hearing about the loss of my favorite earrings in Cleveland. Really recount the event the delight and joy it deserves, I mean, because she is such a marvelously creative and overall remarkable human being. But I don't have the spoon, except to say, Geri, you rock, and I'm still enthusing about your gift to me, all these days later.

I have emails to send out to our unit owners and renters about a water problem that needs to be fixed on Friday. I have to chase after one of the people I represented two weeks ago in a discipline hearing, to see if he can make it to his first stage grievance hearing next week. But right now, I still hurt too bad to do anything more than post here.

I want to continue reading Paul Cornell's latest dark fantasy police procedural, "Who Killed Sherlock Holmes," which is on its way to being just as good, and scary, as the two previous books. But I can't read much.

I thought I might comment on the Dems and GOPs as they flounder and founder prior to their national conventions. But I have not the heart to do so.

I may go and lie down in the dark. Or I may lie here in the living room and chat, slowly, with BB. Not sure which.

So how are all of you?

Happy Birthday Wishes Go Out To...

...two people who celebrated on May 24: 

[personal profile] sallymn , who, although I've never met her in person, is, I am solidly convinced, one of the sweetest people it's been my pleasure to meet online. She's smart, friendly, funny, loves music, and is a fantastic icon maker. There are probably many other things she's great at, but the one that I am surest about; she makes me smile. Happy Birthday, only a couple of days late!

[personal profile] lydy , who is also smart, and funny, and wise, and more than occasionally silly. It's been too long since we last met in person, but I hope that situation will someday change. I hope your birthday was excellent, and I hope even more that your coming year is excellent, glorious, magnificent, and just a little weird.  This entry was originally posted at http://kaffyr.dreamwidth.org/412278.html?mode=reply, where there are currently comment count unavailable comments.

Title: Encounter at the Rembrandt Hotel
 Author: 
[personal profile] kaffyr 
Characters: the Twelfth Doctor, Clara Oswald, Missy, Clint Barton, Natasha Romanov, Phil Coulson
Words: 4,394
Summary: A tale in which Clint Barton and Natasha Romanov learn that they really should have been better apprised by Phil Coulson about the 20 percent crazy stuff from UNIT’s files.
Author's Note:This is another criminally delayed [community profile] fandom_stocking story, this one for the very patient 
[personal profile] beccadg . She enjoys both Doctor Who and the Marvel Cinematic Universe; I hope she enjoys this crossover. I placed it in the Rembrandt Hotel, which I remember fondly from a 1979 visit to England, although it is, I understand, quite updated from its 1979 layout. NOTE: This story takes place in 2013 — before the events of Captain America: the Winter Soldier — but after the death of Danny Pink in Clara’s and the Doctor’s personal timelines. It also posits a relationship between Clint, Phil and Natasha, one undertaken with the knowledge, affection and respect of and for Laura Barton, who is awesome, and who, I think, looks to Phil and Natasha to keep Clint safe. And possibly in line as well.
Edited by: the perspicacious dr_whuh, who I adore.
Disclaimer: As much as I might wish it were otherwise, no characters are mine. They are the sole property of the BBC, Marvel, Marvel Studios, Paramount Studios, ABC, and their respective creators. I intend no copyright infringement and take no coin, although I do thank everyone for letting me play in their respective sandboxes.

Delayed Birthdays Are Still to be Celebrated, As Are Today's!

It's been a bit of a week - and it bids fair to be quite a bit more of a week next week. With that in mind, I've decided to enjoy the weekend. I'll check through my various f'lists and try to catch up with people. And in between grocery shopping and cleaning the oven and stovetop, and possibly even damp mopping the dining room floor, I shall attempt more fic writing.

But first - very definitely first - there are birthday wishes to send out.

Back on May 9,
[personal profile] calapine had a birthday. I hope you celebrated in a way that made you happy, perhaps with family, perhaps with friends, perhaps at home with your feet up on the ottoman, with a libation of your choice in one hand, a good book or a remote in the other. I don't see you around here often, but I really enjoy you when you are. Happy year!

Then on May 10
deathpixiehad her birthday. I hope it was a good one for you who are, so far as I know, still in My Home and Native Land. May your day have been good, and may it presage an excellent year for you!

When May 14 (today! woo-hoo!) dawned,
jrsz's birthday celebration commenced - and I hope it will be an excellent one. I hope you're still poking about around here, and I hope your life is being good to you!

And finally, on the very same day - today, huzzah!!! -
[personal profile] lost_spook is celebrating her birthday. Here's to one of the finest tour guides I've ever had the pleasure of guiding me into the lost world of old British television, here's to that rare fic writer who is both prolific and proficient - nay, brilliantly talented - and here's to someone gifted with dry and gentle wit, patience, and determination to keep enjoying life. I'm glad to know you, and I hope today has been a birthday that suits you right down to your toes!

Just A Thought on Fights on Film or Television

It seems to me that almost any fight, particularly comic-book fights, superhero fights, action film fights, would be shorter, less flashy, and more successful for whoever undertook the final move, if the person determined to win focused almost solely upon kneeing their opponent, hard, in the groin.

(I am reliably informed by those whose business it would be to be in the know that even wearing a cup is not necessarily proof against such a move, given that kicking, punching, or otherwise banging a cup hard enough would cause painful repercussions inside the cup.)

This might not work as well against a female opponent, I'll grant you. However, having landed on the cross-bar of what was once called a boy's bike more than once myself, and having experienced the breath-stopping impact of that, I'm willing to bet it mightn't be as ineffective against women as all that. 

As you can imagine, this has lessened my appreciation of even the most gloriously choreographed fights I've witnessed on the big or small screen lately.

Dept of A.O. Scott Can Suck It

Captain America: Civil War

I'm waiting to see if my computer will successfully upgrade to Windows 10, so I'm hunting and pecking this out on the iPad. That means that this post won't be long or involved. Still, I wanted to say that my Mothers Day present was breakfast (real breakfast at a corner diner, not a "brunch") with BB, FB and Ms Emily, and then we saw "Captain America; Civil War."

First, a side trip, to New York Times movie reviewer A.O. Scott's (I'm sure he'd prefer being called a film reviewer. Suck it, Scott) review of CA:CW. It's here if you want to read it. I read it, and ....

I don't believe I've read such an aggressively condescending review in years. It's not just what he says, it's how he says it - the "Look I really, really want all of you to understand that I didn't want to see this film movie picture, but it's how I pay the rent, and now I'm going to go back and watch "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" for the billionth time to remind myself of what I really want to see."

Dude.

I get it, you're meant for the finer things in life. But really? Did you have to pour all that refined venom into the mix?

I mean, maybe he actually hates "Aguirre, the Wrath of God," so perhaps I'm being a little harsh on him ...

Still?

Duuude.

Then I realized what happened here. He didn't actually go see the movie I saw.

Well, that cleared that up.

Maybe tomorrow I'll have a better post about CA:CW, but for now I'll say I found it extremely well written, remarkably well paced, respectful of both its actors and its characters, and filled with very chewy ideas.

A very Happy Birthday to the most estimable

Happy May Day, Now That It's Almost Over

I had a wonderful evening with BB last night. I enjoyed all the lovely bubbly I had (3 tulip's worth, which probably isn't all that much.)

What I didn't enjoy is the hangover I had. From three glasses of asti spumante. I am so very, very old. 

I can't understand why I don't get any kind of hangover from a gin martini or two, and suffer quite noticeably with the wine.

I did finish my MCU/Who crossover, and it's been posted to the requisite 
[community profile] fandom_stocking  stocking. I hope its recipient likes it.

Dept. of Saturday

Finally, Some Relaxation

I'm sitting on the laundromat, washing the coverlet that one of the cats puked on (which is too large for our home washer), trying to dry off - it's been pouring cold rain much of the day - and recovering, not only from my earlier trip to Costco,but from two weeks of nonstop activity. 

I slept past noon today, which I apparently needed to do. Last night I went to a gathering of former (and current, of course) Pioneer people. It was a good evening; I ran into a woman who'd been an ad rep back in the first years I'd been with the company,back in 1983-84. We were both hired by Rocky, and we realized we probably went back further (farther? I can't remember) than anyone else there. I'd always liked her, and it turned out she'd always liked me; something that's always good to learn. 

I had to tell her about Rocky and Nick, while she had to let me know about the recent death of another old original, Lou Rubino, who'd managed our back shop. Getting old rather mandates those jobs, but it's always sad. I was very touched when she said she'd always thought of Nick and I as a team - perceptive woman - and that she'd respected what she called our passionate dedication to journalistic ethics. We didn't think "ad side" noticed. Silly us.

As I sit here, BB is going over the MCU/who crossover I just finished as a delayed fandom_stocking story. It topped 4,000 words because I can't do short, apparently. 

And tonight is steak, bubbly, BB, and more relaxation. 

I am grateful.

Dept. of Sadness

Well, It Was My Own Fault

Got the last of my unpacking done, and found that I'd left my little carved wooden box with my four favorite pairs of earrings, including one pair that belonged to my mother, in the hotel room in Cleveland. I called the hotel, spoke with housekeeping, and of course it never even made it to the lost and found box.  

The worst of it is that I felt a completely unworthy anger at having left an extra tip when I left; not a lot extra, but enough that my room mate told me I shouldn't leave it, because she'd left a larger tip the day before.

I mean, what the hell, kaffyr? You can be mad that someone decided to take the box — and I will be oh, so glad to be proven wrong, if I could discover that I'd just pulled the box out of my suitcase late Sunday, and misplaced it in the house — but don't regret leaving the tip. You left the tip because you know that hotel workers don't get paid enough; whether or not one housekeeper couldn't resist taking the box doesn't change the fact that she or he should be compensated fairly, and isn't. And you should never refuse to give a tip because the person who gets the tip might be dishonest. 

All of that aside, I am very sad. That box had the four sets of earrings that I wear. Every other set of earrings in my house, with the exception of two, is unwearable and kept only for sentimental reasons. 
 I really should have listened to the tiny gut-voice that told me not to take the box this time (although I've taken it with me on plenty of trips before.) I didn't, and so I basically lost all of my earrings. And losing the ones that Mum used to wear is particularly hard.

A Monday Thought That Strengthens Me

Do not commit the error, common among the young, of assuming that if you cannot save the whole of mankind, you have failed. -Jan de Hartog, playwright and novelist (22 Apr 1914-2002)

This was thanks to A Word A Day, Anu Garg's wonderful site. It made me feel better, because the error is not simply common among the young. We oldsters suffer from that misapprehension as well.

It's like the Doctor said (although I wildly paraphrase); just because you can't get rid of the big pile of bad things in someone's life, doesn't mean you can't add to their pile of good things.

If you can't save the world, you save one person. If you can't save one person, you try to make their life at least a little better. And when we do those things, we triumph, even if we don't always win.

So there you go. And I may find some other good things to think about throughout the day because I think we need to remember good things as much as possible.

Nothing else much to say, except that I've neglected my exercises, battled mouth sores (mostly successfully) and screamed like a screaming thing last night when I felt something on my leg while I was reading, looked down and saw a huge fucking hornet. Kicked it off, screamed some more, and was very glad BB was able to kill it. He said it was on its last legs anyways; I'm not so sure. And how the HELL did it get into the house? In April?

Ah well; to bed now for a few hours.

A rant about age gaps in relationships. Collapse )
My editor, let me praise her. She's a good editor. I really like her.

The first MCU fic is edging toward 3,000 words. I wish I could wrap it up faster than I'm going to be able to.

Have I mentioned lately that I love The Expanse? Have I mentioned how it manages to be as close to realistic hard science fiction as one can get, while still telling a multi-pronged and gripping story filled with real three-dee characters, a complicated and fascinating political plot, and thoughtful social extrapolations? I have? Well, you'll probably hear me gush over the series again. We've just watched the sixth episode in the first 10-episode season, and I am very glad that it got renewed by SyFy.

I am grateful that today I saw a cardinal (male, in all his red glory) on the greensward across the street from my window.
