I'd appreciate some good thoughts and fingers crossed tomorrow around 11:00AM. I'm finally getting to take Gidget to the vet to have her breathing issues examined. Hoping upon hoping that it's something simple and/or simply (read, inexpensively) treated - pollen allergies or minor asthma, along those lines.

She wheezes and wheezes, but it's not consistent, just persistent. Worse after activity, mostly on the exhale. It doesn't distress her or prevent her from being active. She'll kill a laser bug like nobody's business and she can jump, run, pounce. It just makes her wheeze. Which, to be fair, I do too. XD

So we're all just looking to hope it's nothing that would require a lot of medications or surgical treatment, that sort of thing.

SO. Fingers crossed and best wishes, please. Would be very appreciated and thank you kindly.

Never try to mean girl at a Slytherin.

I just need to find a good picture. Suggestions?

People keep making the mistake of thinking that just because I'm nice, I'm a pushover. Or gullible. Or both.

That is...beyond hilarious as a concept.

Fuck everyone today.

(Work issues, though I've run into the same idea outside of work, I suppose. I will elaborate when I'm not vaguebooking on a work computer on a work network.)

Not because I dislike the heat, because I unironically like 90+ degree hot, humid weather, but because it's given the ragweed fresh life. I'm sneezing non-stop.

We were reviewing the kidlet's U.S. history project on Colonial Virginia, which involved Jamestown, and I took it kind of farther than his teacher did. (I do that a lot. History is broadly expansive.) Also I got to explain that Captain John Smith was an asshole, and I got to whine later to Mr. Havoc that I really don't like Pocahontas (the Disney film), not because I don't like Pocahontas (she was awesome), but because John Smith was an asshole, not a romantic lead.

You have no idea how much my dad told me about John Smith and Jamestown when I was a kid. You really have no idea.

So I also learned that the kidlet didn't know why the Church of England formed, and this all culminated in my explaining to him that Henry VIII wanted to get remarried, the Pope told him no, and the Henry said, essentially, "Screw you, I'm the King of England! I'll start my own church!"

It was a glorious moment. I love being a parent.

"A self-described "email prankster" in the UK fooled a number of White House officials into thinking he was other officials, including an episode where he convinced the White House official tasked with cyber security that he was Jared Kushner and received that official's private email address unsolicited."

"Among [McMaster's] biggest challenges was holding the attention of the president. [...] Trump had little time for in-depth briefings on Afghanistan’s history, its complicated politics or its seemingly endless civil war. Even a single page of bullet points on the country seemed to tax the president’s attention span on the subject, said senior White House officials."

From August: "Residents told Al Jazeera on Tuesday that at least 100 civilians had been killed [by US-led airstrikes on Raqqa] since Sunday, with 55 civilians killed in the eastern neighbourhoods of Bedou and al-Sukhani on Monday."

"And my eleven-year-old asked me what that sticker meant, and what did it have to do with Trump, and weren’t we not supposed to use words like that."

Meanwhile, when people were lining up for a Hillary Clinton book signing (starting the night before), she sent her staff to deliver them pizzas. Imagine having someone like that in the Oval Office. Imagine.

Damn cats, I swear

Went out front this evening and nearly had a heart attack. Sam, my big yellow idiot, was on his side in the middle of the STREET. Before I could take another step, he stretched and rolled and looked me right in the eye before turning to his other side.

The bastard was asleep in the street.

Brought his fuzzy ass RIGHT in the house and made him stay in even though it was way before sundown. Give me a fright, get stuck indoors. HMPH!

Other than major news incidents, which are mostly weather-related these days. Okay, not really, but I'm not getting into politics right now. I'm not in the right headspace to handle that.

Please tell me how you're doing! What's going on in your life?

Things in my life after the kidlet's bar mitzvah have mostly been terrible and I'm not ready to talk about them yet, which is why I haven't been updating any of them yet. Distract me from that, please.

I'm so far behind on my tv-watching that I'm just now getting to the Supergirl finale. One spoilery quibble with the first half of the finale that relates to U.S. Constitutional law. )

I'm very much enjoying everything about Supergirl otherwise, at least. I haven't even touched on my summer tv watching yet. It's been that kind of summer.

Dear writer,


Thank you so much for creating a fanwork for me! I'm sure I will love it anyways, but here are some details about what I like/dislike, in case you like to do your research.


First off, I would rather receive a work that the creator was enthusiastic about than one that fulfilled every detail of my request. These are guidelines meant to help you, not to cage you. I've requested fic because I'm not confident in my ability to provide art prompts, but I love fanart and would be thrilled if my letter inspired any art treats.


For this exchange I have requested Affairs of the Court: Til Death Do Us Part, Star Trek: The Original Series, Cannonfire Concerto, Hark! A Vagrant, The Murderbot Diaries - Martha Wells, The Finite Magician (Music Video)

Details )
