* Props to both Rachel Maddow and Trevor Noah for having Trans People on their shows to talk about Trans People in the Military instead of going the lazy route that is so often the standard (talking about trans folk without inviting us to the table or just calling up white cis man Dan savage who has a problematic history with transfolk even though he has shown improvement). I extra appreciated that trans men were represented (and particularly the trans man of colour on Rachel Maddow) as so often it's only white women's voices who get heard in these situation. (To be clear, I've nothing against white women being included, it's just that when it's only white women talking it is a problem. Ex: Caitlyn Jenner getting privileged over people who actually know what they are talking about and have an intersectional perspective like Janet mock. Representation matters and trans men of colour are right up there with non-binary folk for getting little to no representation in media. It is hugely important that people see different kinds of trans people, particularly to trans youth who so seldom get to see anyone like themselves out there).

* The protests worked and 7 Republicans voted against today's ACA Repeal. This doesn't stop them from continuing to try, but it's progress.

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.

I may need to find another basil later in season, but all my bases are covered. While I was watering, I found a bunch more green starts, so did a massive rearrange, which lead me to discover the asparagus is already producing! I missed the first crop, which is fine. I will have to check regularly. I'm not used to them producing so soon in season, as my experience with them is all from Pennsylvania.

* A balanced budget isn't all that important. What's important is what you spend the money on. If you invest the money in things like Infrastructure, education, an things that boost the economy like higher social security, Unemployment benefits etc (which were worth 1.45-1.50 in economic activity for every dollar spent last I checked, up from 1.35-1.40 where it was before the Republicans crashed the economy eight years ago) instead of blowing it on wars and things or worse yet, tax cuts for the rich (which are worth .30 in economic activity for every dollar of tax revenue lost that way). Things like roads, bridges, hardened utilities networks, etc create jobs in the immediate and long term help business. Investing in education is a long term investment in the tech sector, etc.. Raising income on the bottom end of the economic bell curve dramatically increases economic activity as people go out and buy things they need like food, medicine, school supplies for their kids, which tends to boost the economy for the ground up, creating more private sector jobs and increasing tax revenue. Supply side and austerity have been thoroughly debunked as ways to improve an economy and/or tax revenue. The only people they help are the .01%. We have literally centuries of economic data supporting the Keynesian model.

And no, Trump’s promise to default and thus destroy full faith and credit will not help “create jobs.” It will devastate our economy and do generations worth of damage. Tanking our currency, starting a trade war, and all these other terrible things he’s promised. will dramatically raise prices on imports. To see what this might look like google “Brexit” and ”Marmite” or food prices.

* I'm pretty sure if they do what they say they will do: Repel ACA (thus meaning no insurance coverage on the private market for pre-existing conditions), Abolish Medicare (forcing people who by definition have pre-existing, often you die if they take away your meds, oxegen tank, etc type conditions), block grant and dramatically defund Medicaid together, and get rid of medical confidentiality it's going to be a full blown millions of people dying disaster for elderly, poor, and disabled citizens. In the UK thousands of people have directly died from the austerity that cut food, medicine, and mental health services, as in them finding people literally starved to death, died because they had their meds taken away, and suicides.

So many people are going to die from this, which is absolutely what Paul Ryan's Atlas Shrugged ass wants.

They are against pre-natal care funding and zika eradication. If they were pro-life, they would not be trying to deny women in poverty access to breast and cervical cancer screening. Any organization that is in favor of millions of women dying of cancer is pro-death, not pro-life.

* It is incredibly hard to get through to the Bureau of Records and Vital statistics, as their "call volume is unusually high." Ya think? I'll lay odds a lot of it is other transfolk trying to find up what is holding up their birth certificates. (Answer: One specific transphobic bureaucrat who makes her own rules and sets a really high bar on documentation not required by law and has made up her own transphobic wording that you need to get inserted in your surgery letters.) I've been at this about a year what with the name change and gender marker switch, long enough to have had to send a second check as the price for birth certificates went up during the back and forth. I did manage to get through today to the automated system. I sent the last packed of revised documents towards the end of August and they cashed the check before the end of month. They are up to August 20th on birth certificates, so it may be they haven't added the extra documents to my file and made up whatever new hoop to make me jump through to punish me for being "a transgender." Sigh. I'll try again next week.

If you are trying to do a document change in Pennsylvania, best of luck. Seriously. I know the law makes it look easy, but the law isn't being followed. Scratch blue you get red.

He has capped it off by slut shaming her because he fantasized that she starred in a sex tape he imagined in the middle of the night last night. O.o Donald Trump actually appeared in a real porn in 2000, Playboy Centerfold. Not that there's anything wrong about appearing in a porn, but he's attacking her because he imagined she was in one, when he actually was in one. How fucked up is it to attack someone for a thing you did in the first place? What standard of evidence involves deciding that if you can imagine a thing it’s real and then trying to destroy someone over it?

* Donald Trump keeps claiming that Hillary Clinton hasn't the stamina to be President even though she withstood eleven hours of questioning a couple months ago in a Congressional hearing and was strong enough to campaign for days with pneumonia, while he has trouble holding it together for a one hour debate and hasn't the stamina to handle debate prep. Talk about double standards on measuring fitness for office. Can the bar be any lower for men or any higher for women?

- The Host. the Trill makeup is entirely different, which startled me. This episode was so important to us when it was new because of the gender implications, yet somhow I forgot they redesigned Trill for DS9. The Trill cultural continuity is also a mess between here and DS9. Re-association anyone? How about personality change between hosts? I am glad they fleshed out Trills later, just as I am glad they redid and fleshed out the Ferengi, it's just a startle. We were so angry that Beverly Crusher couldn't be bi and that she couldn't accept her lover's transition. We wanted so much more from Star Trek. I still do.

- The Mind's Eye. Picard stubbornly rubbing the noses of the Klingon officials in the shitty thing they did to Worf without actually ever saying that's what he's doing always pleases me. Enter Tasha's Romulan Doppleganger and more of the Romulan infiltration arc. Poor Jordi. What a terrible thing to do to a person.

* I was over the shakes by bed time yesterday and the last of the fever faded away while I slept. I'm still feeling crap, but a better class of crap and my lungs are noticeably starting to clear. I am exhausted, but the upward trend is clear. It's a long strong course of antibiotics, so I know I'll be medicine sick later in the process, but it is so worth it.

When Tavy first came he was wearing a collar, but I stopped hearing it after the first day or two, and there was no sign of it when he finally emerged from hiding. I found it while searching for the mice he's hidden, but no small mice for his puzzle box have been found. Squirrel found his donkey last night and I put it in his puzzle box, but he hasn't touched it. I wish I could afford more, but I bought fish filters for the office tank and a replacement bulb for my bathroom tank instead, once the credit card payment cleared, and that's pretty much it for the month for the beastie budget.

Update: A little before 7PM, LM actually figured out how to fish the donkey out of the puzzle box and had a nice time playing with it. I gave her a dental treat when she was done as a reward. I hope this is a trend. She could use both the physical and mental excercise.

2nd Update: At 10PM, I realized I haven't coughed in hours, and I hadn't come close to blacking out from lack of oxygen since yesterday. 17 hours previous, the cough was nigh constant. I have not gone this long without coughing since December. Antibiotics are magic. Let's stop feeding them to cattle to make them fat and save them so they can keep killing illnesses.

I know it's stupid to be this emotionally invested in a cannibal sport, but there is something amazing about watching something so beautiful and so close to the edge of what is humanly possible. I know all the things wrong with the Rio Olympics, including the shitastic politics there that robbed teachers and other hard working people of a living wage to build venues that are going to be crumbling wrecks in four years, the health concerns, the safety concerns, and all the rest of it, but still, it is hard not to get excited about seeing all the gymnastics competitions.

* It is plant spooge season in my neighborhood, as in I can occasionally watch the pollen floating about outside my window like snow, though it's sporadic and not at the bukkake drift stage yet. (No really, this is a thing that happens in this region.) As a result, I'm still kind of crap despite the antibiotics killing the active sinus infection, and cutting whatever is wrong with my lungs pathogen wise in half. It's a dramatic improvement from a livability perspective, because the sinus infection was making everything incredibly hard, and my lungs do settle eventually once I'm out of the allergen filled air at bedtime, though the correction is slow enough to make me suspect the original virus from January is still in there and noticeable after the bacterial secondary infection has been beaten down. Yes, I know the difference between viruses and bacteria. Because my immune system is way more interested in making own goals than fighting invaders, I will pick up a virus and my immune system will mostly ignore it though will take the occasional swipe at it now and then. My system weakens under the assault and because my lungs are seriously fucked on a genetic level, they get worse and gooier, so a secondary bacterial infection moves in on my already weaken immune system and my incredibly inviting lungs and settles in for the long haul, so we wait for clear signs of a bacterial and we weed wack that.

* I had to stay up for the doctor Tuesday morning, so piled some errands on to. I made rather a botch of things. Forgot to take new prescription up to the pharmacy before driving away from the Doctor. Forgot to pick up emergency mailers, etc. I ended up having to take a book back in the rain at 10:30 PM, instead of sensibly dropping it off while I was out. You get the idea. I woke up with an ankle randomly sprained which is a thing that happens to me. (As in, I didn't injure it gimping around, but I somehow fucked it up just sleeping.) I did manage basic essential things, but not much else. Forage is Wednesday, so short sleeped again.

* The lime dominant marmalade is heavenly and the dried Lemon slices are every bit as good in mulled cider as I'd hoped. The pomegranate caramels verged on Caramelgasm. Omnomnom. Thank you, Tibicina!

* Hector's been on a fish kick recently, as in ate a month and a half worth of fish in a month. I thought yesterday's state of meltdown was because all we had were poultry and liver based goosh flavours. (These are flavours he usually likes). He's bad at change and I thought the not having bedtime tuna was why he was escalating. I was wrong, because I got tuna today and he's still escalating. I think it's one of his psychiatric incidents, which have been mostly not a thing since he started having strokes. Poor wee beastie.

* It's come up recently, so I ought to write it up. No, I'm not watching Shannara. I tried, really I did. Look, the show was better than the book, which even as a teen who read everything could not finish because it was so badly written. The show is better than that. Sure, the effects are cheesy, but given a TV budget, it was acceptable. I did not trust or like their racial agenda, but that wasn't the deciding factor. No, it was the acting. Not all of the acting, mind, but the guy they had playing the half elf was Episode I Anakin bad. Seriously? They couldn't find a single good looking male actor in their age and price range in the whole country? Really? He was so bad that it looked like he was not only reading from cue cards but had also forgotten his contact lenses. He was so bad he reminded me of the Cary Mulligan sketch on... I'm thinking it was Colbert during the Gatsby promos, where she pretended they gave her peanut butter to make her mouth move and then had someone else do the voicing like they do with animals. It was so bad I simply couldn't watch. I'm sorry. It was a deal breaker for me.

* I've bailed out of Magicians because it is a molasses slow version of yet another whiny and boring undeserving white male chosen one. Yes, I know the point of the book is the exact opposite, as my friends who loves the books have told me. If they had filmed a deconstruction of that trope I might have watched it, but life is too short for another boring cliche show.

Refusal to understand consent, stealing from people, and absolute refusal to learn from mistakes and amend behavior accordingly.

He really is the perfect representation of what Republicans stand for in 2015.

* So as you may or may not remember, Misha is my real legal middle name, being a name used by both men and women. (My first name is also used by both men and women, but I never liked or identified with it at all. For a variety of reasons, keeping my legal signature was way less hassle, but I prefer people not use my legal first name.) Gwydion is my use name, which my friends use and have been using for a really long time. Seriously, if you are using Gwydion feel free to keep using it. I like it for a bunch of reasons. However, there are a bunch of contexts where using the Misha part of my legal name makes more sense instead of using my use name. Sometimes the long explanations involved are more effort than needs to happen for certain transactions and there are people outside of my sub-cultures who do not get the use name thing at all and it becomes this big drama. So in circumstances where it's apt to be major drama, I'm using Misha. You are welcome to call me either, and please, please don't correct folks for using either Gwydion or Misha( or Nec or NecHocNecIllud the last two are common social media handles for me). You are welcome to correct them for using my legal first name, because that is really just for banks and creditors, and I was well into my teens before I started answering to it semi-regularly and I frequently forget it is meant to refer to me. I've been going by use names pretty much my whole adult life. Feel free to keep using the use name. Feel free to switch to Misha if you are uncomfortable with use names or whatever. I just mention the Misha thing as it's come up enough in the last year, and the last month in particular, that an announcement is in order to avoid confusion.

* You may be wondering: whatever happened to Archaeology round up? A year ago, I ran a massive October long event on Game of Bones. It was so time consuming, I fell massively behind on everything Internetty. I did try to do archaeology round up periodically and gave up... I'm thinking last Spring? The links I post are the tip of the iceberg as far as the reading involved in keeping up with the archaeology press. Today I finally mostly caught up. O.o I still owe two Black Sails rewatch thingies. I also owe y'all about 2/3rds of a year of archaeology. Of course a lot of stuff in my "to read when I catch up" stash is gone by now, but I've hopes of starting to post catch up links soon. Tomorrow I have a party to go to and I absolutely can't promise dates on Black Sails or Archaeology Round up, but they are firmly on the to do list. If I am stubborn enough to spend a literal year catching up on my Internet reading, trust me, the other stuff will happen.

* So Hector is not doing too well. He's not quite as scary emaciated as last week when I thought he was dying in the immanent sense, but he's Disheveled and scary frail and having trouble making basic jumps. I keep checking him when he's asleep to make sure he's still breathing. He's doing that long fade elderly cats do. Last year he pulled out of it and there is always a chance he will again, but I'm not all that sanguine he will this time, so I'm giving him all the cuddles as this could easily be his last winter.

* Personally, I'm still angry that Moffat chose to ruin the otherwise brilliant Van Gogh episode by deliberately rewriting Vincent Van Gogh's sexuality. It is very worm in the apple for me.

* I rather liked Immortal Rules. Unusual world design, didn't go the way I expected from the set up (It looked like once she meets the vampire it was going to be standard tropey supernatural romance, but it veered off quickly for something way more interesting), rare supernatural genre novel where poverty constantly is a Thing, and strong Woc protagonist. I'm worried that the rest of the series will ruin it, but I'm going to cross my fingers and hope it doesn't head where I'm worried it might. I'd love for this time to be different.
