Ho ho ho, so! You may have seen yesterday's Instagram post and wondered why my left hand and forearm are in a splint. Fun story! I had to wait 10 days to get the stitches from the Avocado Incident removed from my palm. So while hanging out with the A+ [personal profile] boundbooks, who was in town for the weekend, I mentioned that I needed to stop by the local CityMD urgent care center at some point, and that it shouldn't take long. (No way was I headed back to the hospital where it took six hours to get three stitches and a tetanus shot.)

The good news is that it only took about 45 minutes, including getting in their system and doing intakes and stuff. The hilarious news is basically that I didn't keep my hand still enough for the wound to fully close up properly, so, uh. They gave me this thing that makes me look like Hellboy to stabilize my hand for a few days.

I have a date at noon too, naturally! It will be a delightful story, if nothing else.

So, when you print a pricetag at the Red Cross thrift store where I work, you have to navigate a hierarchical tree using arrows and Enter. An example would be "Apparel>Women's Clothing>Undergarments" or "Apparel>Accessories>Children's". Now the department is in the barcode, and the store/chain know what was sold, how long it was on the shelf first, what it cost, etc, and they use this to produce statistics.

And as a result of this, the cash registers can be programmed to automatically discount a whole department, like Women's Clothing or Furniture or Sport, all at once. This is useful for promotions like "ALL CLOTHING -50% THIS WEEK ONLY" - nothing for the cashier to do. (In contrast, with something like Buy Two X, Get the Cheaper ½ Off, the cashier has to check which it is and click 'Discount'.)

Well, this week, my department, Accessories, is on sale. The problem is, my department doesn't have a department in the store like the others. Socks, undergarments, and pajamas are in their respective clothing departments. Hats are there and also in sports. Scarves are in 4 different displays. Jewelry, wallets and sunglasses are in 3 displays unless they're designer or for special occasions. Swimsuits everyone just forgets about until the season. And most of the cashiers can't pass a test on whether all these items are part of the Accessories department or not.

Unfortunately, they need to know, because some (undergarments and swimwear) are officially categorized as clothing instead on the tag according to edicts from the chain level. So these have to be individually discounted anyway (and why not just leave them off the sale? Nobody asked me, that's why). BONUS: we just discovered my coworker in Accessories has been mistagging everything, up to and including jewelry, as clothing.

So that's hundreds of mistagged tiny items scattered throughout the store for the cashiers to (a) identify as accessories and (b) remember to check to make sure the discount rings up and individually discount it if not. Being a cashier here doesn't have any educational or experience prereqs, but it certainly requires certain abilities.

For bonus stress, I'm a cashier as well, and all week when I was at the register it meant I wasn't putting out stuff for the sale.

In case anyone has not seen this link: there is a blog this week doing a Big Gay Fiction Giveaway where you can get about 80 m/m books for the low, low price of completely free. I mean, you have to give them your email address and presumably they sign you up for a bunch of authors' newsletters, but there are some good things there, like KJ Charles' first Magpie book. I personally am looking forward to one that apparently has a rancher falling in love with a werehorse. Also there's one that appears to be gay Oliver Twist.

The Stony Trumps Hate auction is still going on. Sadly, even though I really, really wanted to win [personal profile] garrideb's vid auction, she's up to $90, which is more than I can afford, and since I have, like, eight possible ideas rather than one solid idea (seriously, I have a list of 616 vids in the order I would like to see them), I don't think I can get anyone to go in with me on this. I am sad. So I will try to win Amonae instead because I would really, really like someone to make me a comics vid. I just really want a comics vid so much.

Also I am trying very hard not to panic about this but I am the highest STH auction, as the people competing over me have devolved into two groups now: a Double Time sequel ([personal profile] magicasen) versus a Star Trek AU sequel ([personal profile] kiyaar). There is, uh, a lot of money at stake here. I think the Star Trek AU is losing, although honestly I really can't tell anymore.

I have no idea when I'm going to write this, whichever it is, as my fic writing output at this point is scheduled through at least September (or later, depending on how long Cap-IM BB runs for me), but it's going to be fun and I should probably try to stop screaming internally, right? Right.

I'm trying to get back into the habit of noting down my thoughts in Goodreads!

I seem to be in the absolute minority in Goodreads re: Agatha Christie's Autiobiography, but it's just not that good, y'all.
An AutobiographyAn Autobiography by Agatha Christie
My rating: 2 of 5 stars

I wasn't too impressed with this overall, I gotta say. The beginning was enjoyable, but mainly because Christie's reminiscences about her childhood and parents made me think of my own family history. As the book goes on it seems to get less insightful, more repetitious, and less interested in making anything accessible to the readers; I tortuously dragged myself through the last third of it. She says that she's talking to herself, in this book, and it does feel like sitting in a Cafe listening to Agatha Christie talk to herself. She doesn't really introduce or describe any of the people or events in her life, she just expects the listener to be already familiar. At one point she mentions avoiding the press, and I did a double take, having been given no indication so far that her work had already gotten popular, or how she felt about it.

You don't really get an idea of how she feels about most things. Sure, as she says in the introduction, she wants to reminisce only about pleasant things, but a little introspection would have made me much more invested in the story of her life. She also seems to have very little sense of perspective, of her life compared to others. About her Victorian childhood she says that her family weren't really rich, they only had two servants. Later as she travels the world, she conspicuously gives the courtesy of using their names only to the white people she meets. Any "locals", even ones she spends time with, only get a description.

She also repeats herself a lot towards the last half of the book. Maybe she got away with not editing out her repetitions because the was the great Agatha Christie, but it would have been a benefit to the book.

I did find the descriptions of her early life pretty charming, but I couldn't recommend this book unless you're a huge Christie fan and completionist.




The next two are great, tho.
The Second Mango (Mangoverse Book 1)The Second Mango by Shira Glassman
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I read this one slowly, between other books. I picked it up whenever I was feeling sad or anxious or overwhelmed, and needed something easy. Its fairy tale quality was like a balm for my troubled brain. Simply written, with immediately loveable characters, and I was expecting a bitter-sweet ending and got an entirely sweet one instead.

The dialogue doesn't always read realistically, and it has the feeling of a YA or children's book, except for the open and matter of fact inclusion of adult romance and sexuality. It makes for a really calming and simple read, without any boredom.

This is a book about queer and (somewhat) gender non-conforming Jewish women (of colour) in a fantasy world, and I am not all of those things, but I felt very at home in this world. I'm so happy there's a few more in the same universe to keep me company.




A Spool of Blue ThreadA Spool of Blue Thread by Anne Tyler
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This was a lovely reading experience. As opposed to the Agatha Christie Autobiography, which contained a lot of events but little feeling, not very much happens in this book, in the sense of action, but it's full of complicated, relatable emotion and compassionate understanding of humans. I tore through it, completely invested in these people's lives, and while sometimes a story where nothing much happens has unsatisfying endings, the last few sections of this book recontextualised what happened in the fist half of the book in a very satisfying way.

I recommend this if you love people and want to be absorbed in a beautifully ordinary slice of life.

Chandra Prasad, On Borrowed Wings (2007): in the 1930s US Northeast, a rich-WASP-family mother and Italian American quarrier father had two children. Charles was homeschooled rigorously to attend college; Adele, quicker of memory, was always told she'd marry a quarrier, even as her father began dying from the stone dust before middle age. Then something happens, and Adele takes Charles's place as a Yale frosh in drag.

I had expected rather worse. (Sorry.) As it is, the narrative has about the critical depth of a '00s jdrama: the story lines up some dots, then leaves the reader/viewer to connect them or search for more while it flits to the next scene. Adele cannot help but activate dots as she muses upon quarry misfortunes, her mother's iron recollections of being a rich girl, or the entirely new landscape of Yale, where the maids in the dining hall remind her of herself, taking in laundry a few months prior. But Adele is only a bit too thin as a character enabling the writer's gaze to slice and parry some dust bunnies of privilege; it's fine. It's actually a relief to have the cross-dressing topos given straight so that one may focus upon 1936 as depicted: Adele takes a workstudy placement involving eugenic research which she (incredibly) bends from the inside out. The love interest is obligatory, probably the weakest aspect.

Adele's heritage is based upon that of one of Prasad's parents. I borrowed Wings from the library after seeing a ref to Mixed, an anthology of short stories edited by Prasad which the local libraries don't have.

FUCK! SCUM.

The New York Times and other US-based MSM outlets are currently publishing sensitive details likely to impede investigation of the Manchester bomb, details whih they seem to have got from intelligence sharing between US and UK intelligence sources. It shows the hollowness of all the "thoughts and prayers" rhetoric. That's not the behaviour of an ally, it's that of the worst sort of collaborateur, the sort who does it not from conviction but for gain.

ETA I'm not the biggest Andy Burnham fan out there, but I sympathise with him here where the acting US Ambassador seems to be giving him assurances that either can't or won't be kept.

The most recent episode of American Gods, 1.04 - reactions )

I really, really liked that. I really did!

Another thing I liked: a meme from [personal profile] musesfool: Share the final line of five of your fics — your favorites, or the most recent ones. I'll go with most recent, but two come from drabble collections, so I just sort of scrolled until I found one I liked from those:
I’ll say it again until she hears me, until her breath catches, like the click of a dashboard dial. (Beekeeping for City Girls Without Roofs, Neko Case, "Prison Girls")

When Peggy felt herself open up simply for the joy of it, for her own sake, without flinching, her own excitement at the thought of a long life was a sudden downpour that she passed through and shivered in, after. (Drabble, Peggy, for the first time, after the war, MCU)

BE GENTLE WITH ME, Sebastian's hindbrain screams. (Meeting Redford, Part II, MCU RPF)

The passerby shook her head. Beneath the skin of her cheek, something shimmered, something gray and sick. The old witch drew in a breath, but it probably wasn’t anything. Nothing like that should ever happen here. (Wind Gets In (The Red Blood to the Bruise Remix), Little Red Riding Hood)

"You feel things so deeply, and it makes you good, not weak." She kissed his temple once, in the dark. "Someone's got to tell you that." (Why Talk About Love, MCU, Peggy/Bucky)
Note to self: Do not get so predictably focused on breath, even if you're not releasing one you didn't know you were holding.

Today got to quite a late start, but I got myself to a coffee shop I actually like and can work in and I put together a resume I'm pleased with, and if I can get my cover letter together tomorrow (and hear back from folks I list as references), I will be in very good shape.

newredshoes: I am so hot for Bucky Barnes in his dress uniform. (cap | shipping out tomorrow)
[personal profile] newredshoes
You may have seen me yelling happily about it on Twitter last night, but I watched Captain America: Civil War again last night for the first time in about a year. There are a lot of things I miss about feeling like I was in fandom, but something I don't miss, particularly about Tumblr, is the endless avalanche of people ripping apart and shitting over every single frame of that movie because it didn't conform to the (amazing!) fanon they'd spent the past two years building. Turns out that removed from that context, it's definitely as fantastic as I remembered from my first time seeing it. (And way more pleasant than my second, which involved a seat-kicker and multiple assholes checking their phones in the audience throughout.) Given distance, I didn't even feel that there was too much Tony, which I felt strongly before, and not enough Bucky. Do I wish it had been a simpler, more intimate film? Yeah, but it was always going to be an overburdened ensemble. Ant-Man is a goddamn joy, Spider-Man is a delight, Sharon Carter is a made-of-competence Maria+Natasha BAMF, Clint Barton finally gets to be recognizably Clint Barton, T'Challa is [INDECIPHERABLE SCREAMING ABOUT HOW AMAZING HE IS] and I still respect the hell out of Bucky's choice at the end.

Not only that, but Sebastian Stan is posting dopey Winter Soldier gym-training selfies again, including with Scarlett Johansson, so you can bet I'm feeling a whole lot of stuff, including Winter Widow stuff, what a good ship. ("You could at least recognize me!" is. Doing things in my head, quite a lot.)

The downside of two nights in a row of amped-up fandom feels (Sunday night was a Winter Soldier rewatch, that movie is still so good!!!!) is that I am not able to wake up on time, not even remotely. Therapy last night was, ironically, "Don't get paralyzed by the things you can't control; focus on what you can do." So I'm waiting to hear back on some pitches I'm excited about and putting together job applications in the meantime. I really need money and good health insurance, not least because while clearing out my 1,000+ OneTab links (I'm now down to 200!), I remembered that LindyBop is a thing, and now I have to contend with cute+affordable shit like this dungaree swing skirt (in nutmeg, teal and navy, oh shoot!!) and this cute-as-hell tea dress with puffins on it.

I have one eggplant left over from this rousing success, so tonight I'm trying charred eggplant and walnut pesto pasta salad, assuming my hand cooperates. Having to keep my bestitched hand away from getting wet or dirty is really messing with my ability to, like, clean up my kitchen, which is frustrating. (I know, I know, get some gloves. I'll get there!) I can get the stitches out on Friday, which I'm really looking forward to. The eventual bill for the initial hospital visit, with my shitty insurance and its 50% ER visit co-pay, less so.

So, okay! Late start, but starting nonetheless. Happy Tuesday, gang. ♥

Dear Senator Johnson:

I know that historically you have been an opponent of the Affordable Care Act (ACA), and a loyal member of the Republican Party, and I believe you made those choices for what seemed to you to be good reasons. I don't agree with you, but I respect that you made thoughtful, informed decisions.

I am writing to ask you to change your mind. If the repeal of the ACA succeeds, if President Trump manages to implement any of his healthcare "reforms," people are going to die. They are going to die deaths that would be preventable--that are being prevented now--because they won't be able to afford the medical care they need. This isn't exaggeration, as I hope you already know; a Harvard study in 2009 found that 45,000 people died annually because of lack of healthcare. If President Trump and his supporters succeed, those numbers will increase--and many of the people dying preventable deaths are going to be people who voted to elect you to the U. S. Senate. I am writing in the hopes that your loyalty to your constituents is greater than your loyalty to your party. I am writing in the hopes that you can see that the Republican leadership, including President Trump and his Cabinet, are not acting in the best interests of the people who elected them, the people whom they promised to govern under the auspices of the U. S. Constitution.

If we believe, as the Declaration of Independence says, that all men (and women) are created equal and have the right to life, liberty, and pursuit of happiness, surely that means that all men and women are entitled to health care that is both adequate and affordable. The ACA provides that care, and repealing it out of party politics that are, frankly, petty, spiteful, and deeply inappropriate to our government, is both ethically and morally wrong. I don't usually make statements like that, but for me there is no nuance left in this situation. The repeal of the ACA will kill millions of people, and I might very well be one of them.

As one of the citizens whose Constitutional rights you are sworn to uphold, I am asking you to support the ACA and to vote against any effort to repeal it, undercut it, or destroy the safety it provides to all American citizens.

Thank you.

So the Stony Trumps Hate auction is proceeding apace and I currently have high bid on a couple vids because I want aaaaall the comics vids. But we will see how this goes. *crosses fingers*

What several people have come up with, endorsed by the auction mods, is the idea of forming bidding "pods" -- basically, people who want the same thing pooling their bids to try to win one of the people who would otherwise go for more than they can afford separately. For example, a bunch of people are going in on Kiyaar to get her to finish Sins of Omission, which sounds great to me. A lot of people seem to want to use this to get sequels and/or WIPs completed, which is kind of fun. I am excited about it, anyway. And I think the idea of cooperatively pooling bids is great.

The hilarious thing is, I personally seem to have broken the cooperative bidding. Because, there are, by my count, at least four groups that all want different things from me:


  1. Some kind of sequel to Like a Comet Streaming On (the psychic wolves AU). I don't personally know the person interested in this, so I don't know what they want, but I assume wolfy fluff?
  2. Kiyaar has started a pod bid for a sequel to Straight on till Morning (the Star Trek AU). I actually have a novel-length sequel outlined that I have had no time to write (it involves Don Blake's other identity, mysterious kidnappings of several people including Tony, Section 31, Bucky's fate in this universe, and a ton of angst) and Kiyaar definitely wants this, so provided that bidders are okay with waiting possibly a long time, I would be happy to write that.
  3. There is also interest in a sequel to Double Time (you remember, that Civil War fixit). You will probably be unsurprised to learn that I have had also a novel-length sequel planned out for this -- this outline is a little sketchier (and honestly probably shorter) than the Trek one, but it is all 616 and involves Director/Commander, the Secret Invasion, and a lot of yelling at the Illuminati. It's been a while since I've thought about it. Again, it's one of those things I haven't had time to write, but I could! It would also take a while.
  4. And finally, someone (*significant look at Magicasen*) wants a Kimi no Na wa/Your Name AU. Which is not a sequel to anything I have written, but would also be great.


No pressure or anything, right? Right. *looks at WIP list* I have seriously just mapped out my writing commitments up through December.

But that's not the most hilarious thing. The REALLY hilarious thing, to me, which Sparrow pointed out, is that being in multiple bidding pods for the same creator actually has no conflict. Since the creator is only making one thing (I mean, I am, anyway), only the winning bidder or bidder group actually has to pay. So you can put your name in for me writing two or three different things, but since I'm only writing whichever one wins, you're only paying for whichever one wins, assuming you're in on the one that wins. Like, if you put $20 in every pod bidding on me (say, because you like the sound of all four of those stories and you want to give to charity), you're only going to be out $20 no matter what. Awesome. Weird, but awesome.

Anyway, if you personally wanted to bid on me and you want to get in one or more of those groups -- or create your own, for me or anyone else, there's a post on Imzy (currently missing details for the last two of those pods but they should be going up shortly) where the groups are organizing themselves, and there's a Discord chat where participants are convening. I think a lot of the coordination is going on privately over Discord and/or Tumblr; I think people are PMing the pod organizers with their bid amounts and so on.

I guess I should post about this on Tumblr, though for that I will wait until all the details are up.

Also seen on the Internet today: Cosmo Tweeted Even Though Her Hubby Was Performing, Chrissy Teigen Skipped the Billboard Music Awards to Go See Magic Mike Live http://csmo.us/h6gYQqx and Teigen RTed saying, And it. Was dope.

I clicked through, and while the Cosmo article was meh, it linked to their piece on the show, which is full of eye candy, and then I Googled, and the show's website is really doing a good job of selling this show (I'm mostly referring to the photo) and USA Today says "'Magic Mike Live' is the modern strip show we deserve" and this Ellen Show clip is so much better than I expected (keep watching even after you think the good part is over).

And so now I kinda wanna road trip (for values of "road trip" that are more like "budget airline," on account of it's a 41hr drive) out to Vegas to see this show (tickets are about what I paid for Hamilton, and it runs Wed-Sun, so in theory one could get off-peak flights).
