* The Republicans have until the end of the month to steal your health care and there is a good chance of them succeeding, as the current bill robs blue states that took Medicare expansion to give block grant bribes to red states like alaska in hopes of flipping the votes of wobbly Republicans. It also robs 30 million people of their health care, dramatically cuts Medicaid generally, and is designed to dramatically jack up prices for pre existing conditions and copays just generally.

Look, I know we are all tired, but we need to come out and fight one last time. We need the in person protests at town halls and district offices as well as in Washington. We need faxes and phone calls. We need to hold them off just a few weeks longer. Bombard your Republican Congress Critters wit personal stories. Make them listen to the people they are planning to kill. This is geometrically more important if you have Senators like Collins, Murkowski, McCain, etc., who were against or soft on previous rounds.

Which likely means there is room to collect the stacks of history books sitting in my bedroom to put away properly.

I've had the microwave fan running for about half an hour as I wrote this.
My plan is to leave the fan on all evening just in case.

Addendum: It can run about an hour without screaming. Sigh.

* On the upside, Banner of the Damned has turned out to be amazing. Intelligent asexual protagonist in a really complex, well designed world with multiple climates and cultures. Seriously, things are well thought out on the level of things like how waste is handled for major cities, and with an understanding of how the Monarch's progress can be used as punishment. The protagonist's culture is somewhere between Heian Japan and early Modern Versailles in feel, but the other main culture they deal with is well thought out in an entirely different style, and thee is enough hints about some other cultures woven in to give a feel of a really rich world of which we've only scratched the surface. exactly the sort of thing one wants when one is too ill to sleep easily or well, and forced to hide in the safety of cool filtered air in the bedroom until well after dark.

* Fuck's sake, Republicans! 45's dad was in the KKK, as in arrested while rioting in his hood KKK. 45 himself has a looooong history of racism, including refusing to let Black people living in his buildings. He's said a ton of racist things including in the last year. He sided with violent literal NAZIs and literal KKK members and a terrorist against peaceful anti-racist protesters they attacked. This is who he is. We both know you are lying when you say this isn't the real Trump and he's totally going to change and suddenly stop being a racist. He's made clear who is. He's a 77 year old man who was raised to be racist and in 71 years hasn't made any effort to break with that. If you are allied with him, you are allied with an avowed and adjudicated racist who uses racist rhetoric, pushes racist policies, and who thinks NAZIs are the good guys. If you are standing with him, this is who you are too, and lying that he's going to magically have a change of heart is not going to change which side you are standing on here and how history will judge you.

I know tax bills aren't as obviously threatening as the ACA repeal, but this is very dangerous in it's own way. It is a series of tax bills like this that have made conditions geometrically worse for working and middle class people since the time of Reagan. Like all Republican tax policy in my life time, this bill is designed to increase wealth inequality and harm people who work for their money rather than inherit it. This is yet another dramatic tax cut for the rich at the expense of everyone else that is expected to damage the economy the way all such tax cuts have done while shrinking tax revenues at a time when they are also planning to dramatically increase military spending so that they have an excuse to cut social services.

Please resist this with the same energy we resisted ACA Repeal.

If you have Republican Senators, or Democrats Joe Manchin, Heidi Heitkamp, and Joe Donnelly call, fax, or protest in person, asking them to stand against the bill with their Democratic colleagues.

* I had impressively terrible sleep Saturday, made worse by a wrong number and a resurangce of the all over allergy rash I've been fighting all week and thought I'd beaten. On return from the bathroom after the wrong number, I discovered a pill in my bed. This is never a good thing. I recognized it as prescription grade anti-histamine, which explained everything.

Anyway one that was sorted, I dreamed that Malcolm Reynolds (my role in the dream) and Viv from American version of Shameless were co-leaders of an American Torchwood branch. This episode involved hunting three entirely different mostly invisible deadly things in one day. It also happened to be Viv's wedding day to Svetlana, as Viv was, I guess doing this behind everyone else's back from shameless as really, would you tell them? So Viv left after the first two and the team was hunting a what turned out to Predator without her, only we ended up accidentally crashing the Reception party at the bar as we caught the Predator in the bathroom of the Alibi, which was a good thing, as it turned out not to be the real Viv, but a shapeshifter from earlier in the day....

Possibly geekiest crossover dream ever.

There is plenty of video evidence, including in the opening montage of the movie "Short Bus," which I recommend for other reasons, including trans people playing trans people, non-binary inclusion, positive depiction of poly, and a really good plot. Also, I knew a guy who could do it, and those of you who are intimately knowledgeable about my sexual history are all likely picturing the same guy and you are wrong. No, not him either. It was a group sex thing.

* I stopped watching Doctor Who, which I'd been literally watching since infancy (with gaps when I hadn't access to TV or the show wasn't on local PBS, but I've seen all the surviving episodes up until I quit in season 8. Seriously, I can't remember before my Dad and I used to watch Baker and Pertwee episodes both of which broadcast in my area all through my child, plus the 5th Doctor ones once Tom baker retired from being the Doctor. I'm old school fandom.), because the relentless sexism and general lack of diversity rendered the Moffat Era ones unwatchable to the point I gave up early in Capaldi. I want to make super clear my dislike of the incredibly bad, steadily deteriorating, and -ism ridden writing is in no way a reflection on Mr. Smith or Mr. Capaldi, both of whom did fine work with what they had, or on the people playing the companions. I quit a fandom I'd loved for 40ish years because Moffat kept smuggly moffatting over it.

I have heard Moffat is out after this season in exchange for Chris Chibnall, and while in my heart of hearts I'd dreamcast Sophie Okonedo, I am incredibly happy for Jodie Whittaker and am looking forward to watching a show I used to love again.

* I'm still poking at Dick Cavett. One of those things that comes of having been friends with my Mother my whole adult life is that I know my taste in men and my late mother's was a sort of venn diagram situation. Because the overlap was large enough for her to aesthetically enjoy most of my long line of good looking gentlemen starting in my teens and ending in Skye, and we could enjoy about half the same actors, I always food the areas of divergence baffling. Robert Mitchem was always puzzling to me. She considered him the epitome of sexy manliness. I just... never got it.

I've seen the 1972 Cavett/Mitchem interview a number of times over the years, but I think this time I'm old enough to get it. Still so not my type, but I can finally see what she saw in him, and it rather explains my father too, another source of honest bafflement to me throughout my life. (I loved them both dearly and they were one of those rare 'til death do they part couples. I could get why he chose her, but never could fathom why she chose him). The thing I'm really noticing about Robert Mitchem this time is, he's got that thick tough guy working class accent and genuine shit kicker manly man credentials, but he really loves his family and is faithful to his wife. He drinks too much and goes off and has adventures, but he doesn't fool around with other women and he always comes home. He's funny in a low key, often self depreciating way, and clearly smarter than the image he projects. My dad was a genuine motorcycle riding greaser with a thick working class accent turned beatnik who wanted nothing more than the picked fence life and never cheated on her once and who could keep up with her intellectually. Not the same, but in the ballpark, if you see what I mean.

* ...And the Vincent Price Dick Cavett is all about Vincent Price's one man show as OSCAR WILDE. The clip they have of him telling of a boy who loved him in school gave me shivers. Why did they not film the whole thing so we could watch it now? It must have been brilliant from the little sample preserved here.

* I've also been reading D'Artagnan: the Ultimate Musketeer by Geoffrey Hall and Joan Sanders. This book was clearly written for people of all ages who really love Dumas and wanted to know more about the real person behind the myth. It's very well researched, but a tad plodding, and with all the sex cut out. They really worked hard on the thankless task of untangling these incredibly complex Gascon and Béarnese bloodlines and figuring out where various people got confused for other people and which bits of which sources have proper corroboration, which may have been from eyewitnesses not cited, and which were ass pulling. I do admire the work, but it's a bit dull to read. I do wish I had a copy for my self, and I do recommend it, but I feel like what is needed is a revisit by someone this century with a broader focus that would give more context.

* So I've just finished Cyrano: The Life and Legend of Cyrano de Bergerac by Ishbel Addyman. The author clearly knows her period and places the life and works of Cyrano de Bergerac within the larger context of early modern thought and writing. She also does a first rate job of debuncking later accretions to his legend and unearthing what actually can be know of the real person, and supporting areas where some speculation is required with good evidence. The author is very clear about the difference between things that are known, things that are false or contradictory, and things that are likely. I very much appreciated the deep understanding of the background and period and the decision not to straight wash.

I do have one major quibble, which is that the book really needed an outline. It is very unfocused and tends to wander discursively, which on occasion can be really frustrating. We will just be getting to the point about something I am interested in and then it wanders away for half a chapter to something that would have better belonged with the chapter previous, then meanders back to something adjacent to the point without quite getting in waving distance, then veers off again. All of these bits are interesting, but I feel like if it were properly organized it would be a much more enjoyable and useful read. I do get that facts are sparse and there needs to be a lot of debunking of things people said centuries later that got treated as fact and context is important, but organize that please. Doing it this way makes me wonder if I am looking at padding or someone who can't focus her thoughts.

I do recommend the book. This Cyrano biography was clearly written for adults with a solid grounding in early modern intellectual history and an interest in queer history and early modern French history. (IE: Me) Just understand that it's going to be a bit of a mess as far as connection between chapter heading and contents.

Trying has given me a massive headache. It's like a nightmare from which I can never seem to wake.

* Scam alert: I was awakened about 20 infuriating minutes before the alarm by an obvious scammer. This ploy was only slightly less transparent than the folks that woke me up every hour to insist they were apple tech support with a security alert. I have never owned an apple product of any kind. My sister got a IIGS from Make a Wish in the '80's and before I got my first computer at some point during my second college (I think my last year undergrad?) I used school apples or the apples of friends on occasion, but I have literally never owned anything by apple personally. That was the day I learned to block numbers. I had to block four of them to put an end to it. Today's scam identified herself as some company I never heard of followed by, "This is not a sales call. We are contacting you because you expressed interest in weight loss..." I snapped, "No. I didn't. This is a sales call." I hung up and blocked her. Background noise suggested a call center, so i suspect a lot of people are getting them, and I can imagine someone being tricked into thinking they had contacted some company, likely online, or gave a number at some sales thing, or by phone at some point and forgotten. I know I haven't though. It's as out of character as me expressing and interest in pork products. Anyway, watch out for these folks and the apple tech support folks.

In other news: Monday was forage, plus helping a friend haul things, plus a couple errands, one of which failed miserably. I barely made it back in time to run the Search for dolphins on GoB, so I was taking care of plants, putting away groceries etc.between poses the first hour or so. the bread I had with emergency soup was too salty, and thus made me queasy as salt is apt to do when I'm not sodium deficient. (I know, I am a bad American. I think Mayonnaise is disgusting and salt, apple pie, and hot dogs make me literally ill in the may have to camp in the bathroom if I don't take the anti-nausea pills fast enough, and will be sick for two days in the case of pork poisoning.) I HATE throwing away perfectly good food, but I only ate half and even after the anti-nasea drug kicked in I couldn't bare the thought of eating any of it, say, tomorrow.

The dolphins went well though, even though there were only four of us and we did some more logger tool testing and we think the kinks are out of the system. This are progressing well and it's nice to see multiple plot threads playing off each other. We do the Fair Wednesday evening with the arts, crafts, and baking contests, which usually goes peculiar places.

We are getting inspected this week. Normally, I'd have been focusing on the kitchen, but I really needed to break down the 30 gallon and that is a major mutli-day project. The smell of a dead tank is not peasant and I'd rather have less work done in the kitchen and have the tank sorted than the opposite. I managed to squeeze in more of that after GoB and start on the area between my desk and squirrel's door where things get knocked off my work area or dragged out of squirrel's room. Call that 2/3 done, with the long term project still untouched. I really need to finish the tank and the little liminal area before Wednesday. They may not hit us 'til Thursday, in which case kitchen, but I can't with the bowls of dirt everywhere and the precariously balanced tank, so that has to get done.

* It's looking like Devin Nunes not only has Trump taint all over him but it's looking like he has financial ties to Putin. Also, lets look at an analogy for his behavior in a more familiar investigative realm. Imagine an investigation of an organized crime syndicate. Imagine the man in charge of the investigation was known to be a member of that alleged syndicate within the past year and routinely openly informs the important member of the syndicate what evidence they've found because the organized crime family is "getting beat up in the press" and so deserves to know the details of the investigation. Imagine the head of the investigation calls around to newspapers to use his power to suppress media reports of the crime syndicate's wrong doing and gives press conferences trying to vindicate the people he is supposedly investigating without talking to other case investigators, contradicting the other investigators findings in hopes of scuttling the investigation. Imagine he cancels public testimony unilateral and admits publicly he's never heard of five key figures they are investigating which means he's literally never looked at any of the evidence or is lying, but still insists he is competent to over rule the other investigators. Now add in that not only did he work openly for one of the people he is investigating but has direct financial ties to another.

What would happen? Think he'd still be lead investigator and not a suspect? how "unbiased" would the press and the FBI consider him? Just saying. I don't know for sure he's broken any laws, but shouldn't he be off the case given the weight of circumstantial here and how is it even vaguely acceptable that someone with direct financial ties to Putin has access to classified intelligence for all this time. Have Republicans no sense of patriotism left at all?

* They lung situation is worsening again. I took the last antibiotics Sunday morning, but I'm about as bad as I was just before I started them again. I know I should be more patient. I've not had this pneumonia for quite two months, but I am so exhausted by it and it is hard to accomplish anything if I'm in danger of throwing up or passing out from the coughing every time I bend over.

In other news I actually figured out where locally I could get the sandwich I've been fantasizing about for a few weeks. Of course it's not something I have money for. everything I have left with auto-withdraw in the next week, but it's nice to know there is a source closer than, say, Philadelphia. I've been reduced to digging forlornly in the freezer for lost Mexican Popsicles for my throat.
