Please don't let us lose most of Medicaid in the next half decade for lack of trying.

* 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.

* 45 took a strong stand against human rights and the Rule of law by pardoning Joe Arpaio. Some suspect it is also a practice attempt for his mass pardoning of his criminal associates.

Just a reminder, Joe Arpaio was going to jail for violating a court order to stop arresting and detaining American Citizens without proof of any crime on the basis of race. 45 did an end run around the usual pardon process to show that he will protect police who decide to arrest and hold people of colour for the crime of having melanin and last names racists don't like.

* I do not trust Mattis one centimeter, and even if he were to use maximum discretion to protect serving soldiers, it's still doing terrible things in the areas where there is zero discretion. My best hope is the SLDN law suit, but really, what is needed is a law protecting all service members from these sorts of attacks from bigots. I don't have a lot of hope for that, but we should protest and contact our Congress Critters. We need to make the injustice visible and make it harder for politicians to pretend this cruelty and damage isn't happening.

* 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.

Just because you can't see someone has a serious seizure disorder for example, doesn't mean they don't need the dog.

Invisible disabilities are still disabilities. The Brain is an Organ. Don't be a dick!

* Yesterday was incredibly frustrating with lots of reboots and general computer fuckery and me having to constantly get up to solve problems around the apartment. I did finally achieve stability and was getting real work done, when Tavy ran over and flopped onto the keyboard before I could stop him, turning it off. I extracted him from the lap top and went off to try to salvage a light bulb from a dead fish light in hopes the light was dead for electricals and the bulb was good (fish grow lights are very expensive), as one of the bulbs went out on the twenty that both twenty tanks are now sharing. I usually get the fish store guys to do the big lights as it's tools and tiny fiddly bits that my hands can't really do properly anymore. Extracting the bulb from the dead light was reasonably easy as I own screwdrivers, and I trapped all the small parts in the body of the light just in case. I start to take the second light apart and the fixture flew apart when I loosened the second screw with an alarming ting. Like all of it came apart and not just the bit I wanted, because of course. I can't examine the assembled fixture properly as doing so might endanger a light I knew worked and couldn't afford to loose. I did manage to proof of concept well enough to prove the bulb was still good, but I could not for the life of me get it to match and the thing wasn't stable. Then I realized... missing part. no sign of the thing anywhere. I take the equivalent missing bit from the dead light, construct a prop, start to put it together, discover the screw driver also missing. Because of course. Also, Tavy keeps trying to help. because small loose fiddly bits are his favorite toys. I finger tighten and figure I'll improvise with scissors as they are closer to the right size for the philips head later. I get it assembled and test. Light works as is so bright and beautiful. (Yes, you are supposed to replace both bulbs at once, but unless you are buying me a big ass aquabulb, don't complain.) I take the sofa apart and find the screw driver, tighten, secure and close. It took an hour and a half what with all the help and missing things. The missing piece turned out to be literally under the light, which I discover when I put it back. Fun. next on the list it seeing if I can get one working light out of the 30 light Tavy toasted and a dead supplemental. These, of course are a different shape bulb with different fixtures. Sigh. Not tonight.

* So it turns out that if you email Tom's of Maine to ask them specific questions about their toothpaste, they call you up and talk to you about toothpaste preferences, and they mail you a free full sized tube to try!

I adored Tom's of Maine as they made non-mint flavours, but I was warned off by my Dentist in the mid-90's because of my genetically fragile teeth. (Not a problem for normal people, and said friend says their toothpaste is smooth instead of gritty, so they may have entirely changed formulations in the intervening two decades.) I was advising a friend recently and discovered they'd dramatically expanded their product line and contacted them on the off. I'll test out the taste and texture and see how it goes, since I'd love to be able to switch back. I hate Colgate and Sensadyne flavourwise, and I react badly to peppermint because of my sensory difference. (Spearmint and Wintergreen are fine, but most other mints not so much).

I admit to hoping they might send me a small travel sized tube for testing, I was not expecting a full sized one. Good on you Tom's of Maine. I adore your deodorant, and your mouthwash is entirely inoffensive and does not send me into sensory overload. I am so hoping the propolis and myrrh is safe and pleasant. I'm not a fan of myrrh as a scent, but I admit to curiousity. My hope is if the texture is right and the flavour wrong, I might try the children's flavours. Anyway, fingers crossed.

In other mint news, they had discontinued my tummy tea, hence my inability to find it since I started looking 'round the turn of the year. I was forced to search out a new brand with May's food allotment. I tested it on a queasiness mid-month, and turns out that Numi Moroccan Mint is "sweet spearmint" like as promised, richly flavoured and inoffensive, butter tasting than the old brand.

* There was a last minute bidding flurry, for which I am grateful, but the most valuable thing on there went for about half of what it would have made if I'd waited until Fall. Sigh. The bill I floated last month got paid this afternoon out of my government money. I can for sure pay the bill coming due end of next week. I am suspecting I haven't enough for 2nd bill when it hits mid month, but I won't know how short I am until we get there. Clearly I am not getting paper towels this month as I'd hoped and I may have to do another auction. Which means picking sacrifices. Worse, I may do an imp lot which is waaaaay harder without Main computer's database, but the immediate emergency is solved.

* Republicans want to remind you that bumping three million children off their health care is absolutely necessary to give the wealthiest people a tax cut which is why it is right and ethical to rush their Trumpcare bill through the senate without debate or deliberation. After all, killing innocent Americans by denying them healthcare for treatable illnesses so the .1% can get richer can't start soon enough in their opinion, so why wait?

* Oh Gods. I left the house around 11AM Saturday and was working on the move all day. I got home... 9:15? 9:30? We picked up a local load and two of us unpacked it at the new house. We went to the old house to switch people, then on to UHAUL, where it turned out THEY DIDN"T HAVE OUR TRUCK. It was up in Lynden. I refused to go search Lynden, burning a ton of gas and abandoning our car up there with no way to retrieve it as we would have to return the truck here. It was good I was stubborn. They drove all the way up there to get it only to find out the assholes had rented it out from under us. This took them an hour. They had no smaller vehicles I could take, and stuck us with a full sized moving van, which is twice the size of the largest thing I'd ever driven, too big for the job, and too big for residential roads. It was terrifying to drive and curves were nightmares. They must be out by Monday. We had to take it. The asshole new owners had cleverly parked so I could not maneuver the truck into a reasonable position, which meant anything larger or heavier than i could carry on my head or shoulder had to go two sides of a truck length triangle. Luckily, I could go the hypoteneuse, but still, if they hadn't had to have their three large vehicles in the way, I could have turned around and we could have had a straight line from house to truck. I carried everything I could, while the asshole new owners blasted music, used heavy equipment for which we were not issued ear protection, and allowed their fucking bark happy chihuahua to worry our legs as we were carrying heavy shit. I am, of course, not meant to be carrying anything, but we had four hours to load nearly everything they owned into a frigging moving van with two able bodied people, plus me. I did what I good, taking breaks when I had to. I feel really bad for having to take a whole hour off near the end, but I needed to be in some shape to drive a vehicle nearly the size of a bus. By that point my legs were barely working anyway. Anyway, I gave them the half hour warning, carried a few more things. They said they were doneish for the night anyway. It went against the grain to not fill the truck, but we needed to have had one more person to have made that happen. I went and asked the asshole new owners to move the truck making it impossible for me to leave, which they did do, plus restrained or had their kid restrain the dogs, which was a load of my mind as I was terrified of running one of them over. We were one the road on time and made it to the other place. I had had plenty of time to think about how the fuck we were getting a bus sized truck onto those back roads and park it without sutting off a road's worth of traffic for 3+ hours estimated unload time. My plan to go past the scary sharp turn on the main road and loop back via roads I'd scouted earlier proved excellent as we were able to slide into the lot of the apartment complex next door where there was actual room to park as long as I stayed close in case someone needed more back up room to leave, which didn't happen. (There was room for normal cars to get in and out fine, but if one of the pick ups or SUVs in one section of the complex needed to back out of a spot, I'd have had to pull forward. I was right there and luckily, no one needed to leave after 6:15 or so when we pulled in.) I carried a few things in, but mostly moved stuff from the back of the truck to the front for easy unloading. It only took 2 and a halfish hours to unload, in part because an extra person turned up half way through, so that meant we were out before dark and well ahead of having to turn the beast back in. We gassed up on the way to drop Monster truck off, and I managed it all with only one scary turn. The other moving buddy was kind enough to buy me pizza all day, which was lucky as no way could I cook in this condition and hadn't eaten all day. We did get the bulk of it out. They have other help tomorrow, so I can rest. Monday, I stay up all night and go get the animals out.

I am in a scary amount of pain, shaking, and likely these are all the spoons for the week for non-absolute subsistence tasks. My legs barely work. It had to be done. They must be out Monday.

If I suck or am missing in the near future from venues where I am expected, this is why.

* I got talked into trying Sons of Anarchy. It always surprises me how triggery Biker Gangs are for me. For example, I get sporked every time that post about that one club that does good charity goes across my tumblr dash, and my strong reaction startles me every fucking time. (There is nothing wrong with people reblogging that thing. This is the very definition of a personal problem) In between I forget though, I think because nothing in my west coast life has anything to do with bikers, and unlike with the large complex ball of things I short hand as "gaslighting," but which is actually a big ball of things entwined inextricably with gaslighting, my biker thing is super specific. I'm fine passing the Harley shop down by the Dairy Queen. I'm not even twinged by individual guys or even several guys on bikes. Warlocks are an East Coast club, and it's not like I'm going to see them around here, and the ones that knew my face were super local to that section of Philly and it's not like they'd remember or care after this many decades even if I were recognizable, which I am not. They stopped spotting me about three-four years after I went away to college, and I'm guessing I was well forgotten by then, the whole mess not having been one of their finest hours and embarrassing to all concerned.

It actually takes bikers in a group wearing the regalia, and usually prolonged exposure, modified by context. Five guys formation riding passing me on the highway is a twinge, not a problem. One guy in regalia minding his own business at a dinner is a twinge, not a problem. Since it takes a lot to set it off, and there isn't much that goes on since I moved to the PNW in '91, it's easy to forget in the long stretches between something happening, and it also means that unlike the Gaslighting tangle, I haven't spent literal decades on controlled desensitization. It's one of those things where I worked the important bulk of the trauma through ages ago. I've told the story of my senior year of high school more times than I can count, I believe most recently in a posting about how much Mickey Milkovich on Shameless matters to me and why he rips my heart out every damned time. It really is just this super specific reaction to some super specific input that happens hardly ever.

So of course I didn't think how I was going to feel when I popped the library DvD in... I'm thinking Friday. The acting is excellent. I am fond if several of the cast from other things. I spotted the Hamlet riff right off and am pleased by it, along with the complexity, but...? Yeah. It's not that bad, but it startled me how intense it was the first time it hit. It's not constant, or I wouldn't be doing this. I thought it over and decided it's a good desensitization tool and I should do this, so I've been doing it. My response to the art itself is complicated and not something I am even close to being able to word. It my never be. Was this the ideal weekend to start the project, what with the emergency Move final push? no, but I felt like if I didn't start it I might not, and I made a deal with myself way back in '86, when it became clear I'd never be able to make use of psychiatry, before this particular comparatively minor biker related trauma even happened, about how I was going to handle old scars and psych damage and I've kept that bargain. It's the only safe way to do it if I have to go solo. I am super strict. I have to be, and it serves me well.

So I've been doing this. I'm watching the whole first season before sending it back. I'm okay. I'm likely never going to want to be around bikers voluntarily, but I do think I can desensitize so tumblr won't spork me any more, which is really all I want out of sons of anarchy at this point.

* Thanks to a generous meds donation, we wormed Tavy Button today. It was his first pill and he's only had the medicine finger a couple of times. he still fought like a demon. I managed to pin him on the bed and Squirrel pilled the poor Puggle. I had just changed the sheets, so the bed was a large field of flat black on which a pill would be easy to spot and my floor is easy to sweep wood laminate. I held him and did the throat stroke for a couple of minutes and we played with him on the bed for another five, and no sign of him having pulled Mache's old trick of hiding it under her tongue and spitting it out when we weren't looking. hard as he fought the actual pilling, he took it really well. No sulking, no hiding after. Watched me make and eat dinner, had his shoulder pet. As I type this, he's asleep in his cat cage, snuggled up with my legs in characteristic fashion. We will do LM in a day or two as she is a tad under the weather and there is less urgency since they no longer share litter and only interact on goosh day.

I suspect he came with worms, as it's super common in rescues and we haven't had them since we rescued Hector and Mache at the turn of the century. In retrospect, he was periodically making the worm smell, but since it was over a decade and a half I'd forgotten that that was the worm smell. I'll change all his litters tonight, but I'm not wanting to disturb a sleeping Tiny Terror after his bad experience.

* I have been watching the Royal Ballet's Manon, which just makes me wish I were watching Ashton's far superior Marguerite and Armand. It is... exactly the sort of thing I expect from Kenneth Macmillan really. It's mostly mediocre choreography, indifferently danced. Normally, I adore Carlos Acosta, but the choreography does not play to his strengths. Ms. Rojo admittedly makes a far better Manon than she did a Marguerite, but honestly the fundamental misogyny of the piece makes it incredibly hard to watch even when the choreography and her dancing are working well together. There are moments where the dancing and choreography do combine to make something both visually stunning and prone to fill one with nausea at the same time, and experience I have come to think of as peak MacMillan. For example the Pas de trois toward the end of act one: beautifully danced but watching those men paw her... *shudder* I want a shower. Do people really watch these for fun? I am done. I was trying to get a proper sampling for the sake of my education, but he' so aggressively rapey, and worse, his best choreography is always about things that should never be made beautiful, like the gang rape in Judas Tree.
