This Is Not a Post

Really, folks. It isn't. It's more to say I'm alive, and that I actually intend to continue conversing with people on my last post - I'm not ignoring anyone, I just haven't had the intellectual vigor to follow up with a couple of folks. 

It's not a post, because if it were a post, I'd have said Happy Birthday, 
[personal profile] gerisullivan !! You're an amazing, creative, smiling, disciplined, fannish force of nature, and I'm very glad I know you! May the 2016-2017 year be a good for you, and may we see more of each other soon. 

It's not a post, because I might say a whole bunch of things about the fire-struck oil-slick that is the RNC. I've been watching it at a remove, by following Twitter. I tried watching one of the early speeches and it raised my blood pressure enough to make me turn off the television.

It's not a post because every single day seems to unleash some awful bit of violence here and abroad - on top of the unending violence and despair in Syria and Iraq, in Somalia, in other places that are just as real as my home, against people who don't deserve it. And I don't have the spoons to consider it.

It's not a post, because it's too damned hot. And the old break in my foot aches from the mugginess. And I'm worried about Alex, the senior ginger partner of our feline triad. He's been throwing up almost every day. I removed any bit of milk from his diet (we used to give him a little bit of milk as a treat on a too-regular basis.) I'm hoping that will help.

It's not a post because - wait, I can say that I'm almost done one more IOU 
[community profile] fandom_stocking  fic. Yes! Something positive! 

And now I'm going to bed.

This is not a response so you don't have to feel obliged to acknowledge it.

btw... being compared to the RNC is an insult to fire-struck oil-slicks everywhere.

Heh ... well I was going to refer to pond scum, but that serves to feed ducks and such-like, so pond scum is too nice a term to waste on the RNC.

I just had a thought... should brassy women who stridently proclaim their support for Donald Trump be referred to as trumpettes?

I've only been able to handle the bits of the RNC that've been shown on The Daily Show. And even then- I'm still going 'omgwhyyyyyyy'.

The party now has the most conservative platform it's had since Goldwater, and with a good deal less honor than that bat-shit crazy but essentially honorable man had. It's like a slow motion train derailment - that people are, for some reason, clamoring to join.

I fear for the Republic. No. Really.

*hugs you hard*

Gahhh, this is a not-post that I 100% get.

Hope Alex feels better soon, honey...

Thanks for the hugs. And thanks for the good wishes to Alex. We're keeping an eye on him. He's thrown up again, but it may be that it takes a little while to get rid of all the lactic poisoning. I really hope it's that. If he doesn't stop, we'll take him to the vet and hope it's something we can fix; he doesn't like throwing up, so even if it's something relatively minor, I'd like to end it.

*hugs back*

I'm mentally saving this "it's not a post because" the next time my lungs (or computer space bar) give me shit. Seriously. :P

Alex seems to be doing well today, and my aching foot is no longer aching so much, so on the whole, I think I'm doing pretty well. Thanks for the good wishes!
