It got to the scene where they were negotiating with the Americans via interpreters, and I wandered off into the kitchen to clean up lunch and change out a fly strip. I had this strange feeling of rightness, and then it dawned on me, I was half half listening in two languages while tidying up bowls and such. My parents' bilingual dinner parties, when we had house guests from from France. Soft simultaneous polite conversation. Everything right with the world for a little while at least.

I am assuming he doesn't understand that in his analogy he cast himself as Hitler. O.o He just Godwined himself.

* My plan last night was to stay up and do labs first thing in the morning. That meant water only after 11:45 PM. I turned out way too tired to do that.. I set an alarm and went to sleep after my rp commitments were done. I started my Wednesday with a half hour of phone bureaucracy. (Most of it on hold). The most important time dependent thing was solved to my satisfaction. I have a list of East coast business hours phone bureaucracy left, but I've achieved a ridiculous amount efficiently since the start of December. Then I went for my interview with the vampire. I know I keep saying this, but poverty clinic phlebotomists are the best because they routinely stick people with difficult veins. I have really hard to work with veins (tiny, deep, prone to wiggling and collapse). I've had serious trouble with hospitals, the Red Cross (back when I could legally give blood as a teen), normal lab techs over the years nailing them. My clinic nails the vein every time quickly. Five big vials generally leaves me ick the rest of the evening, so I moved the TV to the living room before I left. I still managed to do dishes, make diner, futz with the down TV (still can't get picture), sweep some key section of floors before lung time.

* Apparently to my ears, the BBC announcer saying "Motor industry" sounds remarkably like "murder industry." For a few brief moments I was paying waaaaay more attention to the business report than normal.

- Conundrum. I love Ensign Ro Laren. Worf being leader because he is wearing the fanciest decoration is logical. This episode strikes me as a mirror to the one where the crew is divided up and people have to do unaccustomed jobs. There they were working against type; here they are stripped down to their essences. Picard is about compromise and reasonableness. Worf is about protection. Riker is about flirting. Data is about being helpful. Geordi and Doctor Crusher are about fixing things in their respective realms. Of course, part of the point of this is to pull Riker and Ro out of their antagonistic positions within the command structure letting them interact as people. Unfortunately that ends up being romantic. Sigh. Of course it does. Louder sigh. I admit, I strongly prefer the Torchwood version of this plot, but it's not badly done here and is, of course earlier. I do like the way they are in character even when they can't remember themselves and how that plays into the denouement.

* The man expected to me Republican Speaker of the house was out bragging that they wasted 4 million of tax payer dollars on a partisan witch hunt against Hilary Clinton in the hopes that their pretense that there is a Benghazi scandal will sink her poll numbers. That was the sole purpose of all this nonsense and waste of money: to stop her being president. Imagine if we spent that tax payer money on things that were good for the country like fixing bridges or hardening tech infrastructure instead of blowing it on Republican petty vendettas because Republican politicians as a group are as deeply fiscally irresponsible as they are spiteful.

* My lungs were as clear as they've been last March so I let them flu shot me during today's doctor appointment. I hate leaving it so late, but the pathogens haven't allowed. I started out the day exhausted and was too wiped to decide on an make anything proper to eat. I am eating plain matzos right now in the hopes if I eat something I'll be able to... oh! Soup! I could heat up soup! Duh! I'll try that after a rest. Flu shot means I'll be a functionally level of crappy the next 1-2 weeks depending. Why do I do it, knowing my system can barely cope with vaccine? Because I will happily trade 1-2 weeks of crappy but functional for 1-2 months of horribly ill with a risk of hospitalization and/or death, possibly twice in the course of six months. Odds are there will be enough mutation that I will catch a virus towards the end of flue season, but partial immunity means about a month of functional crappy rather than that 1-2 months of horror with a risk of hospitalization and/or death. Vaccines are our friends, slightly jerky for someone as medically fragile than I am, but so much better than the murderous pathogens they protect us from. I'm meant to be getting another lung one that had been juvenile recommended, but is now geriatric and lung patient recommended. The Doctor is going to get pre-auth and I'll be trekking to a fancier pharmacy for it assuming it clears once I recover from this one.

Oh, and vaccinate your damned kids! It saves lives literally, and in the measles vaccine case, you are protecting your child not just from the disease itself which can land your child in ICU if you are unlucky, but will disrupt their immune system for years after leaving zim prone to more infections. Your child will be happier and healthier and you won't be responsible for murdering a baby or a cancer patient etc. in your area. And have you seen what polio does? I have. My sister's BFF's mother had it and why would you put your child through that on purpose.

Anyway. I have made a start on the next Black Sails write up, but no guarantee on how long it will take for obvious reasons.

* Vikings: I have a half formed Floki thought I'd like to toss up for discussion. I was rewatching season one, while watching three. Aethelston is rejected for sacrifice at Uppsala because he is a Christian and unwilling. Floki Sacrifices him in three because he is a Christian. (Aethelston seemed to accept his matyrdom and that might count as willing). So how does that play into Floki's arc in season three?

I do think this tracks with my idea that Ragnar and Floki are spiritually linked. I think one can not live without the other. Think that the thing the seer said about divided souls applied not just to Aethelstion but to Ragnar and Ragnar/Floki, if that makes sense. I think maybe Ragnar set Floki up to die by giving him so much responsibility as revenge for Aethelston, and that trying to kill your Anima is a really bad idea. I think Ragnar is dying from internal injuries from his fall during the siege, and that you can not have Ragnar without Floki or Floki without Ragnar.

I am now wondering if Floki/Aethelstan is some sort of Anima/Animus situation and that when the two halves of Ragnar's soul turned against each other, all of their luck went bad.

Of course, I could be totally wrong. It's just the series takes all the Gods as seriously as the characters would.
