* I gave up trying to make sense of 45's word salad Arizona rant a little before midnight on the grounds that i was exhausted and all I was getting out of it was a headache instead of meaning. I did have a lovely dream about a modern AU where Steve Rogers (me in the dream. Don't judge.) woke from the ice with no real memories of what came before, bet with the same personality and super soldier upgrades. He ended up recruited by Amanda Waller (Yes, I know I'm crossing the Marvel/DC streams) instead of Nick Fury. Meanwhile, when Natasha Romanov defected, she took the Winter Soldier with her. Bucky was exactly as confused with only vague flashes of the Before time. Natasha was running her own ring for Nick Fury out of a garage, with Bucky as mechanic and husband. Steve Rogers was sent for a team up mission between the two agencies. So there is Natasha dressed rather like the matriarch in sons of Anarchy, one elbow on Bucky's shoulder looking me over.Cut for salaciousness: ) And off we went on a mission that was basically a large trapped enemy base infiltration, with bits of memory coming back to both Steve and Bucky. A++ would Steve/Bucky/Natasha base infiltrate again. That and the cuddling Tavy and reading Tanya Huff's Fire Stone were the only good things that happened today.

I did some calculations and determined that I could make the attempt on tires today. This was a terrible mistake. Internet directions looked straightforward. This was a lie. They had me get off in the next town up drive to the highschool make a couple turns and follow this big straight road until I saw it on my right. This was not how we got there last time, but that also involved lots of turns through back country, which is always a terrible fucking idea, as the street signs are seldom good, there are few places to turn around or ask directions, and the local teens have a habit of twisting street signs to lead strangers astray. Worse yet, the nice straight lines on maps are usually lying and things happen like if you go straight at the intersection you are on a different road and to go straight by the map you must go left or right, often with no street sign of the street sign twisted the wrong way and there is no next street sign for another ten miles to tell you you are on the wrong road. All of these things happened, of course, which was why I was dreading doing this, especially without a navigator. I burned a third of a tank of gas, pulled over in a bunch of church lots, a factory lot, and someones house to consult maps. The internet directions and the address I was aiming for did not match, as the streets did not connect....

Low on gas I hit the end of the road where it was meant to be where was a baptist church. I checked the doors on the grounds that even at a weird time on a Thursday afternoon in summer, you can sometimes catch altar guild ladies or bible study or what have you and the building was large and complicated and I couldn't tell if there was a rectory tucked away somewhere. I was exhausted hot, half panicked as I could not be sure where I was and was not all that clear where the Interstate was. I was not sanguine there was anyone there, as I didn't see cars out font, but the lot stretched behind so I gave it a shot anyway. This is the PNW, and I know full well if one looks distressed enough sometimes the act of looking obviously distressed will attract help. (This works particularly well when you are having car trouble and it is pissing down rain. Seriously folks, I live here for a Reason, and this is one of the benefits along with ideal climate until climate change started fucking with it, closeness to Canada, excellent laws, strong education system, social safety net, Queer friendliness, beauty of the landscape, access to civilized amenities....) The weather was hot and clear, but the hope was there. Doors were locked, but an elderly gentleman on a bike saw my distress an stopped. (Seriously. PNW). I braced myself for being evangelized, but I was happy to deal with that in exchange for him letting me follow him to the tires. He lived next door, so got his truck and took me there. (I didn't get the impression he was the preacher, though he may have been. He came off more like a true believer of the sort that hold those places together, especially in the middle of no where). I let him give me a new testament which he inscribed himself and let him evangelize me, and used proper church phrases. I am really good at this given my upbringing, even though obviously I did not have a baptist upbringing. I did my very best to give him all the gratefulness and interest i clearly owed him in exchange for his help. I did not tell him I had a much better translation of old and new testaments with apocrypha on my reference shelf which I keep handy for arguing with homophobes on the internet mostly. Episcopalian are hard core into Bible study, both my parents and my mother's mother were at various points vestry, mom and Grammy had both been church treasurers. My mom taught Sunday school, did bell choir, ran pageants, planning was a lector. Mom and Grammy were both on planning committees and the like at various times. All three of them were on various reverend searches. My Dad and I were in choir. I'd done Bible study pretty much since I was old enough for chapter books and went to a school with chapel three times a week where I had classes where we did things like comparative religion, bible study, history of monotheism, etc.. I was the only one in the Medieval Studies program in college who arrived with a working knowledge of Medieval heresy. My choice to break with monotheism was deeply considered and irrevocable, not out of bitterness and certainly not out of ignorance. Buddhism fit better for a host of reasons, and i am just not a theist.

But polite is polite and he went waaaaaay out of his way to help me and I really was grateful. I paid my coin in attention and good manners and took my new testament meekly. I had burned so much gas, I wasn't sure there was enough to get home, so I bought the very cheapest tires instead of second cheapest, but they looked sound, and drove well at 70 on the long flat stretch of the highway in moderate wind, and breaking and lane changes were noticeably better, so I felt like they were a pretty good deal all things considered. The man who took my money, was very likely one of my students the last two years I taught. He had a distinctive face and went to the right middle school. I gassed up and had a ridiculously easy time getting home, as the highway was RIGHT there, but the gas station down the road. If I'd known, I could have just gone north to that exit, made a right off the ramp, and another right, driven a bit and there it would have been. Fucking A! I'd have had the better tires, not had to gas up, and not had a frustrating, exhausting, and occasionally dangerous all afternoon country drive in the heat.

At least we know where it is now.

* Tavy update: I think he's finally turning into a cat, for which I am greatful. I don't just mean that he's adult shape and weight, though that is true. I've noticed he's settled down a lot in the last two weeks or so. nHis sleep/cuddle/play balance is more young adult cat than kitten, which is dramatically easier on me, given how extra he was when he arrived even for a kitten. He's more willing to entertain himself in less destructive ways while I am asleep or out of the apartment with toys, busy box, busy bag, and contents himself with stealing the half piece of paper towel I use to keep my next to the desk coaster from being overwhelmed by ice water sweat, instead of stealing entire rolls of paper toweling, tp, and or books to shred. (He really likes shredding.) I will happily sacrifice half a paper towel segment a day not to wake up to things shredded and broken all over the apartment. He's also been dramatically less violent with me in that two week span, something I've been working on since we got him. He loves wrestling, which involves launching himself at my forearm, digging teeth and claws in hard as he can and attempting to disembowel it with his hind leg, which really fucking hurts and does real damage. I happily offer diversions, such as toys he can maul, string, cat in bag, etc.., but until recently we had a minimum of a half hour a day where he persistently tries and frequently really hurts me. We're down to one or two attempts every few days, and he's way easier to divert. He' still too violent with Squirrel and LM, hence the limited contact between the cats. (No one likes being bitten, no matter how much he likes biting. He genuinely thinks he's playing). Squirrel refuses to be strict with him as far as the mauling goes, so I'm not sure how well things will generalize, but I am really hopeful seeing how much he's improving. I've also noticed how much better he's gotten over the course of the summer at compensating for his disability. He's such a sweet, cuddly little guy, and I'm really enjoying who he's growing up to be.

* So the town to the north of me has a road called "Dick Stone Lane." We assume it was named for some specific person, but Wednesday we decided "Dick Stone" ought to be the star in a noir porn parody. Dick Stone Private Dick! He should be based on Humphrey Bogart, obviously.

So this morning as I was getting dressed, I realized that it should clearly be based on the Maltese Falcon, because clearly Dick Stone needed to star in the Maltese Dildo as private dick, Hump Free Boggart. (I know backwards, but pun!) I can see the golden dildo being held aloft right now. Come on, you'd watch it. I could be hilarious and brilliant in the right hands! (Waggle brows).

He also gave a full throated endorsement to the NAZIs that converged on Charlotte.

* "Are Your Members of Congress Doing Enough to Respond to the Charlottesville Terrorist Attack?:" https://www.indivisibleguide.com/resource/members-congress-enough-respond-charlottesville-terrorist-attack/

* I am white and am often assumed to be male (I am an adrogyne), but there are few things as terrifying to me as large groups of white men, because they are generally the people insisting I do not deserve even the most basic human rights. They are generally the ones talking about rounding us up and putting us in camps or flat out killing us.

I am on the other side of the country, but seeing the Charlottesville images and hearing the associated rhetoric is fucking terrifying. The images and chants are instantly recognizable. I have often written about how much more dangerous white supremacists are in this country than radicalized muslims. White men born in this country have done 73% of the terrorist acts in this country in recent years. I can not think of a single terrorist act performed by someone who wasn't a white man in my state since I moved here in '98; I can name plenty done by white supremacists. For example, they generally try to bomb the MLK day parade in Spokane most years. I have not once been harassed or threatened by a person of colour since I moved west 'in '91. I have a whole list of harassment, threats, and attempted assaults by white cis men in those decades.

Republicans are defunding attempts to stop white terrorism and attempting to suppress reports on the real danger it poses. In five states they are trying to pass laws to legalize terrorist attacks on crowds such as occurred in Charlottesville. 45 has ordered white supremacist terrorist organizations to be moved off task force agendas and to be ignored in favour of increased harassment of innocent moderate muslims. Look, I am not a fan of Islam for pretty much the same reasons I am not fond of organized christianity, and if there is probable cause I am all for law enforcement doing what is legal and necessary to prevent attacks, but I feel like white straight Christian cis men are disproportionately a threat to public safety and law enforcement approaches to terrorism ought to reflect that and proportionate resources need to be allocated towards the real threat whether they are clinic bombers, Aryan Nation, KKK, Neo-NAZI, etc.. Police need to start arresting them when they assault people instead of attacking peaceful protesters and hunting and killing innocent black people.

This needs to stop; it needed to have stopped a long fucking time ago; and it shouldn't have taken an alarmingly loud mob with torches chanting NAZI slogans to get this discussion going on the republican side. My worry is that racist policies will continue even though some Republicans still have just enough shame to admit under pressure that NAZIs might be bad.

* Death by Silver is delightful! It's very, very me. I would like to thank whichever of you recommended it. For those of you who did not know of this book, it is about two Victorian gentlemen who prefer gentlemen solving a murder in a Victorian London in which metaphysics (Hermetic magic) is a thing. The world building is A++. Patent from a kit magic that completely botches enchantments. Terrible boarding school hazing. A sort of Perter Whimsey/Sherlock Holmes atmosphere with plenty of Waugh tossed in. I am charmed.

Let people and employers buy into medicare, thus solving the escalating premiums, shortage of insurance providers, etc. problems, and adding healthier people to the Medicare pool won't hurt it. We could remove the Bush Era cap on pay in that prevents the wealthy from paying in their share while we are at it.

Of course, Single payer would be dramatically simpler than all these things, but that is like hoping Republicans would suddenly wake up interested in doing what is best for human type people, the economy, the country, the world, etc.. Not happening.

If any of the following is your senator, please call to thank them for saying "No" to repeal: Sens. Shelley Moore Capito, Susan Collins, Dean Heller, Lisa Murkowski, John McCain, Rob Portman and Lamar Alexander. This is important as it makes them more likely to keep saying no, as Sen. Collins has made clear when referencing all the positive feedback she's been getting for protecting her constituents.

* The next round of ACA repeal vote is to be a "Skinny Repeal" which will rob about 16 million working Americans and their children of health care and crash the insurance market creating massive chaos.

Mattis, and the Pentagon, why don't we just cancel one or two of 45's golf outings? Or take it out of the military's viagra budget? McCain and even Orrin fucking Hatch are against this.

* It's not helping if you didn't ask first. This is true on the small, personal scale, on the activism scale, and the Geo-political scale. Questions like, "What do you need", "Would you like me to help with that?", "What would you like me to do?", "What would be most useful for me to do?", and "How can I help you?" are magically because they not only are a subset of consent, but also let you target help when and where it is actually needed instead of just making things worse by barging into a situation without listen to the person or people you are trying to help.

On the personal scale, it is things like asking a person in mourning what they actually need instead of drowning them in food they can't store for the first two days than disappearing. Maybe what they actually need is respite child care or help with the dishes. How will you know I you didn't ask? Similarly, just grabbing someone's arm or wheelchair handles without asking is invasive and the absolute opposite of helping. Odds are you are about to knock someone off balance, make them lose step count, impede rather than facilitate, etc.. Not asking means it's about your ego or how you feel or what you want. Asking if you can help sincerely and listening to the answer, including no, is actually helping. Odds are I do want help cleaning up after the wake or carrying that stack of packages, but you don't know if you didn't ask me.

It's the same with allyship. Educate yourself. Listen to the discourse. Interrogate your biases and privilege. Listen to the people in the community you are wanting to stand with, and pay attention to what they say they need from allies. Signal boost their messages. Give the help that is asked for instead of imposing your ideas of what is best, because the people in that community have thought longer and harder on what needs to happen than even the most well meaning person can.

It's the same on the big scale too. When we invaded Afghanistan there was all this high minded rhetoric about helping women. Government programs, NGOs, and private charities all turned up with big ideas about how to "help," but it's not helping if you don't ask. Very little attempt was made to ask Afghan women what they needed, or enlist them in planning and decision making. The women we claimed to want to help were infantilized by paternalistic outsiders who never once considered that the people they were pretending to help might have their own, superior ideas as to what would actually improve things. When Jenny Nordberg came through much later and actually *gasp* asked, women said that they wanted things like full scholarships for young women from rural areas to go to school to become doctors, nurses, teachers, etc., so they could afford to train and then return where they were most needed, but that wasn't the sort of thing westerners convinced they know best would think of, because they don't know conditions on the intimate level that the women born and raised there did. I use this example, because it is on my mond lately, but there are other things in the world news this applies to.

It's not helping if you didn't ask first and you didn't listen to the answers.

* TNG Rewatch, Season 6:

- a Fist Full of Datas. So in the Scotty episode they used the holodeck without anything going wrong. I think that may be a record, one whole episode with holodeck bu no injuries or dangerous malfunctions. I've been recently rewatching the HBO Deadwood, which is rather a stark contrast, as you can imagine. This version ought to be cleaned up and a little silly, as it's a child's let's pretend. Of course, TOS Tombstone (and the Hartnell Doctor Who Tombstone) haven't that excuse. Anyway, Worf is bad at pretend and also still struggling with the parent thing, and very, very Worf. I am really uncomfortable with the cartoony Mexican bandito stereotype, and I could have done without the man in dress based punchline. has anything good ever come of tampering with Data's brain? Amusing call back to the infamous data cat poem. Brent Spiner is delightful in this and it is good to see them give Marina Sirtis something worth doing. I do enjoy the conflicting value systems here as Worf struggles to deal with something entirely alien. It was good Worf actually does the riht thing with Alexander for once. Is this episode the start of Diana/Worf?

- The Quality of Life. The Beard debate... I have no idea how to feel about it. The opposition set up between feminist discourse and self expression is messy in a very Star trek sort of way and does wend us back towards the personhood theme fundamental to Data in particular and Star trek as a whole. Even though Data isn't in this particular scene, this is a Data episode and does deal with artificial life and personhood. Seriously, the season six writing is noticeably better and I appreciate the little bits of continuity like Geordi's beard. The bickering is understandable given the stress, but exhausting to watch. This episode is full of big questions: What is life? What happens in the moment between being and not being? What constitutes slavery when it comes to AI? What are the ethics around testing for sapience? Is one intelligent lifeform more valuable than another?I do like that thesolution came dp

* TNG Rewatch, Season 6:

- Relics. The return of Montgomery Scott. This one was incredibly exciting when it was new, and at the same time as heartbreaking as Spock's father's dementia, though the ending is so much more upbeat.

- Schism. Data's infamous cat poem. I know the whole Riker can't sleep/sensor glitch thing is the main plot, but let's face it, Data's struggle with poetry is very relateable and the interesting bit of the episode, until it starts getting creepy round about Worf at the Barber. Side note: How can anyone sleep in that position? No wonder Riker is having trouble even absent the McGuffin. This episode really does an excellent job of creating a spooky atmosphere even with the way the enterprise looks and the holodeck scene is really effective.

- True Q. Environmental commentary is unfortunately completely on point here in the 21st century. Poor young Q. Horrible usual Q.

- Rascals. I have so many questions about how this transportaer accident worked. Why is Picard the oldest child when Guinan is the dramatically older adult, for example? Why did their clothes shrink? Like the people got younger, and smaller is a side effect of that, but why does making clothes younger make them child sized instead of, say reducing them to component parts? Look, this is a fun episode and I really enjoy this sort of character exploration, but I can't help pick at the illogic. How can I not enjoy Mini-Picard? The mini-Guinan/Ro interaction? The flagrant swashbuckling?

I continue to give no fucks about the O'Brien marriage. I also think it's way too early to have serious conversations about long term what to do if she's stuck twelve. Fuck's sake, give it a little time to figure out if it's temp or if it's longer term! Yes, figure out who is sleeping where tonight because otherwise eeeew; yes comfort because what happened is genuinely scary and pull the rug out from under you fuck with your head, but why invite pointless drama over long term results of something that could be fixable soon? Deal with now, now, and save long term planning for when you have a prognosis. Of course, this is why a lot of conventional relationships in media are boring and unpleasant. I am not conflict avoidant in real life, but my RL relationship style is to have serious conversations as needed but not to make drama for the fun of getting angry at each other. It always seemed to me that the O'Brian marriage is about escalating situations that call for calm discussion and negotiation. I just... ugh.

There are so many nice little moments in here, like mini-Picard enjoying his hair, Riker using technobabble as a weapon, and the bed Jumping. Seriously, season six is comparatively well written despite it's flaws. I love how good Guinan is at this and how clever. I love how Picard mini-Picard is. I love them using the appearance of childhood including the undignified Picard tantrum.

* Rejoice, for the Car emergency is ended! I anal retentively ordered a Blue Cab for an hour before the appointment for fear of the cab coming late. I foraged, as it's just around the corner from Honest Mechanic (Alignment and Brakes Plus Bellingham). In the event things ran about a half hour later than projected with my car, but this was all to the good as it turned out that when they opened it up, the alternator was not fried as previously believed, but chock full of belt frags that had essentially frozen it in place, and labor at Honest Mechanic is much cheaper than a new alternator. The result is that there was enough left over that between us, we had enough money for the whole electric bill, plus meds for both of us and cat food.

If anyone donated and would like a refund for the meds money and kibbles, the fundraiser having only been for car repair and electric, PM me and I'll see what I can do next month. Thank you again donators. The lights will stay on at the cat asylum.

I went to pharmacy, library, and to get kibbles and spend the last of this month's food stamps on magic apricot straws. The car battery is fully charged. Squirrel got off to his game on time. As I wrote this, I was full, the forage put away, and Tavy was in his room playing with his new pharmacy bag. All is well with the world.

Squirrel thinks his pay check will cover it, but it means we are going to be two month's late on our electric bill, which we had to float to make the June Car repairs. (He's also going to lose his phone).

This is a real emergency. We lose electric we are fucked, especially in this heat in the middle of allergy season when my lung meds (requiring electricity) are pretty much all that keep me upright. Anything people can send will help, as offering electric a partial payment is better than nothing.

* The House has voted to completely defund the Election Assistance Commission presumably in response to reporting that the Russians have compromised election databases in 39 states and have interfered with the 2016 elections on all levels, since the Election Assistance Commission exists to fight exactly this sort of tampering. It is looking like Republicans feel that letting Putin delete eligible voters from the rolls and pick winners in our elections is way more important than patriotism, Democracy, etc.. I can't think of a single other reason they would take such strong steps to render our elections easier to hack instead of taking the logical step of dramatically increasing funding for the sake of National Security in the face of evidence that our system is vulnerable. Party before Country seems to once again be the motivating principle for this decision. Every single person who voted for this is complicit. Every single one of them decided they would rather be in power in a Russian client state than take the chance of a fair election in a free country.
