A Totoro Christmas
Happy Birthday to a Most Interesting Fellow

Many happy returns of the day to apostle_of_eris; here's to one of the most interesting people I know. And if knowing includes being confused, frustrated and occasionally gobsmacked, it also includes being energized, intellectually stimulated, amused and generally enriched by having you in my circle of friends, and in my life. May today, and the next 364 days, be as full of light and life as possible!

Dept. of Relief

Ein 2
So It's Sunday

And I can say I'm ambiguously relieved (because I'm never completely relieved. Never, ever. Because of my dour family history. Because it's me).

 I've purchased nearly all the Christmas, Yuletide and other holiday gifts I hope to get. The one exception is BB, because he is very difficult to find gifts for. He's given me at least one suggestion, on which I'll take him up, but I want to find something else.

I got through our Sunday condo association board/membership meeting. It took less than an hour, every one who came (and I think we only had eight of our 18 units care enough to send representatives) supported the budget and the 25 percent assessment hike. The one person I thought would come and cause more problems didn't. Yay, us, and go, me!

I've gotten my [community profile] fandom_stocking "to-do" list done. (I'm a little disappointed that not everyone who once got involved in fs got involved this year, but that's life, I guess.) Note that I didn't say I've gotten any stocking stuffers completed. That would be too much to ask for. I shall do those at the last minute, fueled by the adrenaline rush of deadline-induced fear.

I still haven't sent out holiday cards, although a pile are sitting on the table, waiting to be written and addressed. BB and I have to go out later, to attend FB's and Ms Emily's latest radio play, so I'll try to get at least 10 done in time to drop them in the mail by the time I walk out the door.

BB and I are all caught up on the animes that we're watching together. Tomorrow, he goes for his radioisotope uptake thyroid test (think I got that phrase right), and we'll see where that leads us.

I also got an Internet advent calendar, and I've decided that if it's not the best thing ever, it's certainly one of the best things of this month.

We probably won't get a tree until Thursday or so, which is four days later than we normally get it. Normally, "pick a tree" day is on the 15th, but that's tomorrow, and I have deadline crap all day, and an incredibly boring school board meeting to attend at night.

Oh, and I'm reading the second in the Rivers of London series, and enjoying it. Thank you, Paul Cornell, for getting me into supernatural British police procedurals through your two London Falling novels (London Falling and The Severed Streets).  The Rivers of London stories are much less intense, and a lot funnier, than Cornell's works, but both series are worth it. Cornell's two novels are definitely full of both terror and horror, and I'm waiting for the third in the series.

Dept. of Joy

shizuko and seiji are friends
Thirty Three Years

We have a beautiful card that sits on our mantelpiece. It's a reproduction of a Chinese painting. On a separate cover sheet is a single English word, and the Chinese symbol that represents the same concept; contentment.

Inside, BB wrote: "Your head. My chest. Our bed. 20 years."

That was 13 years ago. It has never left the mantelpiece.

Four homes, eight cats, one son, 10 or so jobs, seven or so used cars, 10 or so computers, various life-threatening ailments and five different hair colors between us.

One life together, where the worse is always made better, and the better is always turned into the best; where the ride is roller-coaster, the sorrow is bearable, the joy is sharable, the sex is probably none of your business, the laughs occasionally uncontrollable.

He is my lover, my best friend, and so much more.

Who cares if he doesn't make the bed the way I like to make the bed?

Dept. of Holidays

A Totoro Christmas
Hey There, Online Friends!

The year is turning, and we have the prospect of lights and color, and gift giving and lovely things like fandom_stocking - and this year, I have the chance to send Holiday, Yule, and Christmas Cards. I would love to send one to as many people around these here Intarwebz as possible. So I'm asking a favor of all of you.

I know that some folks have indicated they want to send cards - but I was too disorganized to note addresses and such, and now those posts are days in the past. I assume those folks, and others, also want to receive cards.

So, if you'd like to give and receive cards from me,. just PM me with your address, and I'll PM you back with my address.

All of which will make me inordinately happy, so thanks for considering it!

Happy Birthday, [personal profile] azalaisdep !

How could I have forgotten the birthday of such a lovely gentlewoman? She introduced me to the world of LotR fanfic with her own bewitching stories; she consistently shows kindness and thoughtful gentility in all her dealings, and she is a delight to know. I  hope your birthday was happy, and that you made a great start to your next year in this world.

Happy Birthday (just one day late) to the admirable [personal profile] clocketpatch , someone who knows the challenges of cold winters, the joys of fanfic, the lure of traveling, the allure of strange but adorable little cats, and so much more that makes her a person I am so glad to know. I hope your birthday was a good one, that Tucker did not climb any curtains, and that you weren't knee deep in snow - and that the coming year is great!

Today is also the birthday of one other person, whose honor it is to know and send wishes to, even though those wishes may have to travel far, since she doesn't appear to be posting a lot these days:

[personal profile] lonewytch writes wonderful stories, thinks deeply about many things, and has gotten through bumps in life that I know would leave me completely unable to cope. And yet I've seen her cope. Talented, strong, and a joy to know - I hope your birthday signals that the coming year will be good for you!

Spend years (truly, years) looking at a pair of good snow boots, one of whose side zipper needs to be replaced. Finally take it in, get it replaced. Lose other boot. Or perhaps dropped it off at cobbler's, and forgot to get it back. But if so, why did cobbler not give it back to me?

This is my life.

Dept. of Thanksgiving

Train view
Thank You

In the past, I've written some pretty lengthy essays, monologues, meditations and such on Thanksgiving. Some of them were pretty eloquent (I know; I just checked, because I roll that way.)

This year, it's not going to be all that eloquent. I'm older. I'm more tired than I have been in previous years. My ability to find a verbal hook on which to hang the rest of my commentary has rusted, along with my facility with words. 

However, along with my advanced age, I've become wiser. At least I've reached the age when I realize it's not egotistical to say, "I've learned from all these years on earth." And I've remembered that one can be brief without missing the point - which is this.

Thank you.

Thank you, online friends, for being out there. My world has not shrunk to the social pinpoint it could have, thanks to you. I am not chained to work and sleep, and fear of going out, thanks to all of you. You show me the world through your words - you show me many worlds. You reach out to me from across the globe. You let me share a little bit of your life. You let me cheer you on; you let me wish you happy birthday (usually late); you let me give you electronic hugs. You allow me to care for people beyond myself. Thank you for that.

And you care for me. Whether we know each other just a little, through fanfic, or shared fandom interests, or know each other a little more intimately, you have soothed my cares, lightened my loads, and reminded me that life can be good. You've hugged me, helped me dry my tears, put up with my seemingly endless bouts of depression.

You are all treasures. Remember that. Each and every one of you.

Today, my son came over; we baked a pumpkin pie together. I finally made some more bread - and it turned out beautifully! I got housekeeping chores done; washed our comforter, kept the kitchen neat and clean despite all the cooking. FB and BB and I laughed together and listened to music (FB introduced me to Fugazi, and I introduced him to Caribou, and we both listened to Joe Hisaishi's orchestration in the soundtrack to Princess Mononoke), and I had a glass of wine and remembered to do another recommendation over at calufrax. The house is warm and fragrant with baking. I am surrounded by family, something that is more important to me than I can ever explain in words. A little later, we're going out for Thanksgiving dinner with good friends.

The world is in a terrible state. There is heartbreak out there; there are injustices crying out for reparation; there are struggles to be maintained; there is an environment to be saved.

But right now, right this very moment? I am blessed. And I hope that the love that surrounds me will energize me, and allow me to go out there tomorrow and fight a little harder for this world.

And I owe so much of my blessings to you.  It all comes back to people, to shared hearts and minds, to all of you.

Again I say it. You are all treasures. Again I say it - remember how precious you all are.

Thank you.

 A Dual Birthday for mack_the_spoon and namarie24

And I actually get to wish these two wonderful people the very best returns of the day on their actual birthday! 

These ladies are, both of them, intelligent, creative, dedicated, disciplined, adventurous people, who it's been my honor to know since my days over at Television Without Pity. They are also kind and loving, and a reminder to me of the good side of faith. 

And they're fans and fanfic writers, who share my love of Doctor Who, Firefly, In Plain Sight, and other shows. (They're lovers of kitties as well!)

So here's to both of you - may your time back home be wonderful (and I hope you get to go a con), and may you continue to thrive in your lives' chosen profession and mission. I'm so glad I know you!

Parades are good ...
And work glitches shouldn't interfere with enjoying them

Thank ghu for good days. Even though I had to work today, and even though I hadn't realized until Thursday that I was working a weekend shift, it's still a good day today.

First, because my work day is over, and I actually managed to write two stories. Second, because one of those stories was a fluffy feature about my town's holiday parade, which necessitated me going to see the parade this morning

We-e-e-ll, I say "necessitated" ... I should say I had the great good luck to have a parade to go to.

I love parades. I have ever since I was a wee little thing. I don't believe I'll ever get too old for them, and I don't really care if they're huge, long processions or little dinky community affairs, as this one was. There's just something about the positive vibes - yes, that's pretty woo-woo, I acknowledge - about seeing floats and marching bands, hearing bagpipes, all the bright colors, waving at the participants and having them wave back - even the clowns and the Shriner mini-cars, they all press my childhood buttons of wonder and special occasion and festival. And with the tiny parades, there's an added sense of shared community; everyone's smiling, kids are generally having at least a bit of fun, even the older ones, and people are willing to let their barriers down and talk to you.

So I got to wander around and ask people if they were having fun, and see loads of people I knew - even had someone come out of the parade and give me a hug. I've definitely been on my beat long enough to say "I know this town," at least a little bit.

Once I got home, and a little thawed out - it was 42 degrees Fahrenheit, which was better than it has been over the past week, but my fingers still got numb - I wrote up the story and sent it to the duty editor. And then it was on to an actual news story that I'd done the interviews for a couple of days ago. And then I was able to end my day.

Why does this fairly pedestrian activity relax me and even make me a tad joyful? Because for the first three days of the week, I was in an unpleasantly high state of tension, for a reason that hasn't happened to me in a while.


Non-parade, slightly crappy, you've been warnedCollapse )
Ahem; this seems to have turned into a long angsty post.

But I'm happy! I've been able to do a post, and I went to a parade! And I have a glass of wine next to me, and BB and I are about to watch a movie! And I made cookies, too many of which I've ingested! And tomorrow is a day off! And Thanksgiving is coming, which I love! So there are a lot of positives! And many, many exclamation points!!

Clara under pressure
Under Pressure

(I wish I could write like [personal profile] elisi ; I wish I could think like [personal profile] promethia_tenk . If I could, perhaps I could have come up with something about Season 8 of Doctor Who that was better than this, or at least more organized. I've been thinking hard about this season ever since it started, but those thoughts never quite coalesced the way I wanted them to. They'd start - I'd get bits of imagery, or flashes of understanding - and then they'd dissipate. 

The only thing I could do, in the end, was put those flashes and images into some sort of broken-tiled picture. I can't speak to themes and motifs; I can only speak of how I felt, and about what, and who. And I found, a little to my surprise, that I care a great deal about Clara, that indeed I found her the most compelling part of this season, with the new Doctor running only slightly behind her. I was ambushed by my affection for her, which happened with Amy as well. Why should I be so surprised, I wonder? Perhaps that's something for another day.

In the meantime there is this: unedited, unbalanced technically and probably thematically, not to mention emotionally.)

Dept. of Far Too Many Birthdays

Hurrah!
Hums "Happy Birthday to Many"

As I sit here, watiing to watch Doctor Who, and bemoaning the fact that I never did get my series 08 meta put together, I realize that I have left birthday wishes unsent for ... augh ... weeks. So let me send some out now.

First, to the talented artist redscharlach, who had a birthday way back on Oct. 23. I hope your natal day was a good one, and that you have another year of enjoying fandom, and enriching it with the wonderful art and icons that you create.

Next, to [personal profile] cosmiccoz , who also had an Oct. 23 birthday. May this year be twice as good as last year, my dear; free of sadness, pain, eyestrain, grief and hardship. You are in my thoughts.

Thirdly, to the incomparable [personal profile] yamx , who celebrated on Oct. 26. I am so glad I know you here on Teh Intarwebz. Here's to a warm, talented, friendly, and thoughtful fellow fan, who has written stories I will never forget, and with whom I've shared laughs and excellent conversations!

Closer to the present, viomisehunt, a lady I respect a great deal, celebrated on Oct. 31. She is a an excellent writer and a thoughtful person who has entertained me with her fiction, and opened my eyes and ears to new music, new writers, and a broader world. May you birthday have been a very good one, celebrated with people you love.

On Nov. 2 don_fitch celebrated a birthday. Happy belated birthday wishes to someone who is gentle, observant, pithy, witty, and a gardener to boot.

Then, just a couple of days ago, on Nov. 5, the highly estimable erikvolson celebrated a birthday. I raise a figurative glass of good beer in your direction, sir, and hope that we can see each other sometime in the coming year.

Finally, Happy, Happy Birthday to cathica, a brilliant writer of both fic and professional fiction. She is also extremely kind and thoughtful, proof that  fandom contains some remarkably lovely people. I hope some day to meet you in person, and share some time with you. May your year be free of bears, and full of inspiration, good health, friendship and love!

Dept. of End of the Weekend

Level 7
Very Quick Things

  • Cold on the way out, back spasm threatening. I will threaten it back, and frighten it way the hell out away from my muscles.

  • BB's thyroid biopsy came back negative for cancer. Since the tests indicate some thyroid problems, there may still be a connection to his ongoing fever, etc. We will find out when we talk to his doctor later this month. In the meantime, we are glad it isn't cancer. If that sounds less than ecstatic, it's only because we still don't have an answer to what is making his life miserable. Sometimes you can get so desperate to find out the reason for an illness that you begin to eye something definite with something uncomfortably close to approbation.

  • Saw the first half of the Who finale, Dark Water. I am willing to wait to see what the second half brings; I enjoyed it more than BB did, and he didn't not enjoy it. Was not surprised by the reveal, since I (and practically everyone else) had spotted that one from, oh, the first episode of S08. I'm reasonably pleased by it although I have never had the great affection for the character in question that others have. (Fascination and appreciation, yes, and some thoughts on the character's evolution, but not affection.) Why am I being this obtuse when everyone on my list who wants to see it has seen it? Because some of them may not have, so I'm trying not to be spoilerific.

  • And, out of nowhere, and thanks to posts elsewhere, all the scattered thoughts I've been having, the "I know there's a meta inside me waiting to get out" thoughts, the ones that have been swimming around aimlessly and without direction throughout this season (one I've regarded as extremely variable in quality, one I've been surprised to see viewed as a near masterwork by a lot of people I respect), have finally started coalescing. Mind you, that could be a mistake on my part. I thought they were coalescing around episode 3 and they didn't. So I shouldn't promise anything ....

  • Tomorrow, I get to go down to the legendary and fearsome Tribune Tower, to meet my new owners. Yes, it's on a deadline day, but they did at least apologize for making the mass meeting a last minute thing. More, after that happens.

This Cold Sucks, Like a Great Sucking Thing ... Oh, And Other Stuff

Here I am, trying to get back on the posting bike again.

I was supposed to go to a Chicago Humanities Festival panel, "Chicks Dig Time Lords," today. It's being hosted by the editors, including[personal profile] rarelylynne of course, and I'd been looking forward to this for so long! I'd bought the tickets more than a month ago, and had it marked on my calendar, and was going to go with two friends, and ...

... and the cold got worse overnight, expanding in my head and crawling down to settle into my chest. I opened my eyes this morning, and almost immediately realized that I couldn't get the energy up to go. Not only that, I'd potentially be spreading the cold to everyone else. So I cancelled with my friends, and have been lying here on the couch in what counts as jammies, drinking tea, wrapped in my shawl and feeling very sorry for myself.

So now I am thinking about going through my favorites on Teaspoon, because I'll be reccing at Calufrax in a couple of weeks, and I should be ready.

(Heh. I just looked at that sentence and realized that to a non-fan it would mean nothing absolutely nothing, with suspect grammar and spelling to match.)

I'm also working on trying to get some more done on Hearts & Moons, Chap. 24. What is it that eve11 calls her long term challenge, a WIP o'doom? That's what I'm dealing with here. I am determined to finish the story, but - oh, never mind, you've heard it before.


More on my company's changesCollapse )

As for me, right now, we're waiting to see Dr. Who, which should be possible in just a few minutes. I'm going to focus on that because, after all, this chick does indeed love Time Lords. They make everything better, even with a head cold.

First to

Over on LJ, an excellent skiffy fandom acquaintance from long ago, galacticvoyeur, celebrated on Oct. 18th. I hope the day was good, (with no carbonated beverages) and that the coming year contains adventures both near to home and as far as you want to wander. 

And one of the earliest exposures to fanfic I had was from 
[personal profile] aibhinn . Thanks to her I immediately knew there were quality writers in Who fandom. What's more, she was welcoming and encouraging of a tyro fic writer. Thanks, and Happy Birthday (on the 18th)!
