* The New York Times and Washington Post both have pieces about a shady as fuck deal with Putin to build a hotel in Moscow back during the election that looks like another set of bricks in the Trump-Corruption treason case. Likely explaining the whole Mueller wanting 45's financial records and 45 threatening to fire him if he subpoenaed them, as 45 knows exactly how guilty he is. Remember we suspected something like this more than a year ago. I remember explaining to a gathering of friends at a lake picnic last August that 45 was foot dragging on public release of his financial records and why reporters were so keen to get their hands on them. Sigh. Anyway, but brain isn’t close to up to the task of trying to untangle the details of the reporting tonight, but likely there will be lots more in future.

* So it's looking like 45 tried to quash the Arpaio case by trying to get Sessions and White House Council, McGahn to stop it going forwrd last spring. Which looks like Obstruction of Justice. Just a reminder: 45 called Arpaio a "hero" and a "great guy" for violating the 4th Amendment Rights of American Citizens, and for setting up, in Arpaio's own words, a "concentration camp" in which people died of things like being denied water for a week. When he does this, 45 is aplauding him for doing terrible things like refusing to investigate the rape of women and children as young as two. These are the things 45 stands for and Arpaio is proud of.

* My body did a hard veto on foraging today. I did drag myself out for meds and library, but the heat and my AS and allergies to outside are combining to make me annoyingly shaky and slow of thought. I keep telling myself I just need to hang on another week or so and there will be food I actually want to eat again and likely rains.

...I just discovered a thing I was supposed to take back to the library today in the (luckily dry) 30 gallon office tank, likely casually tossed there by Tavy in a moment of exuberance. it wasn't due, but there was a line, which means someone will lose to days they could have had it. Sigh. cats.

* I keep crying over footage from Houston. The image that really got me today was the one of the nursing home patients trapped in rapidly rising water, women in wheelchairs with water up to their chests and rising. I know they are all right, that the posting of the image by a relative saved their lives, since help came in time to get them out, but I keep imaging their fear, and how fragile they are. Every time I think of them, I start weeping again.

"How to Help Hurricane Harvey Victims:" http://www.slate.com/blogs/the_slatest/2017/08/27/how_to_help_hurricane_harvey_victims.html

* One of the fundamental problems with me watching Game of Thrones is that the whole writing stopped being any good years ago thing means I don't really engage emotionally and I'm bored enough a lot of the time that I see all the structural bones. Me: they cut the whole thing with the horns from the books, so they need a way to bring down the wall, so they need an ice dragons, which may be in the book too, but I'm betting not as clumsily contrived, so they had to lure a dragon North, so they had to do the stupid plot holey bro-trip that repeats the thing with sending Yoren with the hand to Kingslanding, and anyway D&D really wanted the bro tip and who cares if anything during or about it makes sense, which means the whole thing with the telepathic communication between Lannister brothers, and accelerated teleportation between locations to an even more ridiculous extent, which means... Fuck, I forgot to listen to the dialog again.

I just... This show criminally wastes the talents of so many skilled actors with embarrassing and often clunky dialog. They started this episode with a dick conversation. They wasted so much time this season on stirring up pointless drama with usually misogynistic usually nonsense conversation that winded back people' arcs yet again, and forgetting people's back stories so that their behavior often makes no sense or trauma appears and disappears in the same scene, that they had to wind up a whole lot of character's arcs all at once abruptly this episode instead of using the season to gradually build various character arcs to meaningful moments. *Facepalm* Which means all these incredibly skilled actors are trying their damnedest to make their characters make sense DESPITE the writing instead of with the help of it. The slow also gives me time to get so focused on the fuck nonsense is so and so wearing instead of what they are saying.

It's been a criminal, heartbreaking waste of so much hard work and talent.

Addendum in response to reader comment:
The Clegane situation this season has been one of the wore examples of them turning his backstory on and off at the drop of the hat often within the same minute. I just... that poor actor, trying to make that mess WORK. It was very much one of the things I was thinking of when I wrote that. Him working through and over coming his trauma could have been so powerful this season if the writers, you know, understood trauma and how people process it and how to write a consistent character and character growth.

Instead it was ridiculous and embarrassingly bad. Again, not the actor’s fault any more than the mess they made of, say, Sansa Stark and Theon Greyjoy were the fault of the actors. The tendency they’d had all along to flip character traits, backstory, and development on and off randomly, has just accelerated to the point of over the top silly with Clegane especially the lat two episodes. They aren’t even pretending to be coherent any more.

* 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).

* 45 is now outright blaming the people protesting fascism for the violence perpetrated on them including things like the NAZIs clubbing a peaceful delegation of clergy and the terrorist attack that murdered an innocent woman and injured 19 other innocent people. He also gave a full throated endorsement to the NAZIs that converged on Charlotte.

I am still trying to get my head around the fact that the official position of the Republican party as represented by the President they voted for is that the NAZIs are the real victims here and that the people they physically attacked and in one case murdered are somehow the attackers.

* Mainstream Republicans and Police Unions both believe we need to legalize terrorism. It’s not enough to pretend to disagree publicly with 45 when he insists that the people protesting fascism are responsible for the violence aimed at the them and the literal NAZIs are the real victims. Every single person backing the bills legalizing mess murder are complicit and the blood is on their hands too.

* "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.

I had somehow misremembered this as being in season seven, so wasn't emotionally braced for it, Picard's torture and interrogation being strongly reminiscent of my childhood interrogations, because it was the first thing I ever saw that got that it is fundamentally about getting the victim to agree to the lie, a that is how they break us. At the same time this episode was much of the impetus for the rewatch, as a quarter of a century late it still haunts me. This time I am thinking about how this trauma interacts with his earlier violation at the hands of the Borg. I had honestly forgotten how philosophical this is. I do appreciate the ethical discussion. The mind games are always the hardest to watch for me. Picard's defiance and cleverness speaks to me on the deepest level. When this first aired, this was not a thought I was capable of having, but now I am pleased that he voluntarily went for therapy at the end.

* 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.

* 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.

The peak of the Lizard Lion festival is this weekend and I'm heavily committed there, plus the usual physically demanding stuff on Monday. I am still covered in bruises from Inspection and tank cleaning, and my muscles hate me. Easy foods are a must. My Thursday thing got cancelled, so I am picking at the kitchen, and doing small things needing doing, including brewing a fresh pitcher of sweet huckleberry tea. I think this will be the last summer for it, as the supply of leaves is fast dwindling, but I have hopes of it lasting through July at least.

* Republicans want to remind you that raising health care costs for Middle and Working Class Americans and the Elderly by about 1500.00 a year and kicking millions of the working poor off their health care while dramatically cutting Medicaid is absolutely necessary to give the extremely wealthy CEOs of insurance companies their massive tax breaks. They promise expected rise of 30% in what people will have to pay for health care next year under their plan will actually help the working poor and Middle Class by forcing them to pay money they don't have to not die.

* Jason Chaffitz is so rich and incredibly entitled he thinks people making minimum wage have a month's pay to waste on an iphone seven instead of spending that on NOT BEING HOMELESS. The choice he is asking people to make is not between a luxury and health care, but Rent and Healthcare. Yes, Mr. Chafitz, it is about choices. Choosing to pay rent IS the responsible choice for the working poor, but YOUR CHOICE to literally kill people by denying them health care to pay for yet another tax cut fior the very rich rich is cruel and evil.

* Sometimes I like to imagine Henry VI of England, Charles VI of France, Charles II of Spain, and Louis XVI of France living in a large rambling cottage in the country somewhere with someone to look after the cooking. They would each have their own room and space for their interests. Henry could herd a small flock of sheep and Louis could make keys. Every one would be careful not to touch Charles VI, and the cook could make soft foods for Charles II. Everyone would be kind to each other and none of them would be asked to deal with things like war and politics and they would be so much happier than they were in life.

Henry VI in particular just breaks my heart every damned time.

* TNG 4 Rewatch:

- Final Mission. The toxic waste ship is also all to relevant to my great distress. I am pretty sure radiation exposure sickness doesn't work that way. Wil Wheaton Acting the shit out of this one.

- The Loss. I have always said Deanna is not a good counselor. she leans on her power to cover other deficiencies. While Riker saying what he said when he said it is assholish, he's not wrong. There is a lot to unpack here around the disability metaphor, but I'm frankly to tired to attempt it.

- Data's Day. His subroutines for dealing with common human emotional responses reminds me of me and my attempts to deal with other people who feel jealousy. I so sympathize with Worf on the human wedding thing. I do think this is another episode that has relevance to neurodivergance, in that it has relevance to difficulty reading emotional content in other people and predicting how they will react emotionally. I also do love an unreliable narrator. That tap dancing! I've taught people waltz and swing informally, and while steps themselves are easy to explain, I always struggled with explaining the signalling and the way of moving. I picked it all up instinctively and had no way to explain to someone who couldn't pick those things up through example and imitation. I'd occasionally come across someone so stiff that dancing with them hurt. this scene seemed pretty realistic to me. Here begins the Romulan sleeper agent arc, though there was some previous foreshadowing.

- The Wounded. The Cardassians are introduced. I have always disliked O'Brian and Keiko. The Apocalypse Now episode. I really like the ambiguity here. This is another episode that addresses war time trauma and difficulty adjusting to peace after.

- Devil's Due. Classic Debunking.

- Clues. This is a good little mystery.

- First contact. Alien groupies.... She just coerced Riker into sex, didn't she? Why doesn't Starfleet Print or DNA lock phasers? Why are nearly all the aliens races (except Klingons and that one horrible racial stereotype of a culture season one?) and colonists they meet played by white actors?

- Galaxy Child. Famous last words, Jordi, famous last words. This is so that thing most men do in my experience, where the guy makes this whole fantasy image of who a certain person is and how the story will unfold from there without, you know, checking who the person is and what they want first. Guinan really is calling this one accurately. I don't blame her for being grossed out. It as creepy as fuck. Jordi's "guilty of wanting to be your friend" thing is so classic nice guy syndrome.

- Night Terrors. An allergy to certain sedatives runs in my family. It causes extreme agitation, paranoia, and full spectrum hallucinations/break with reality in those it effects. That scene in the turbo lift with Picard? That was my Grandfather on haldol when he was dying. It is unnerving to watch. Picard speaking of his Grandfather's dementia? *shudder* to real.

* Wednesday the weather turned to full on PNW Autumn. Thursday I had a big social thing and came home so tired I did the bare minimum (feed animals and fish, lungs, hygiene) and crashed out for a full thirteen hours. apparently I forgot to take any of my meds but the lung and anti-nausea pills and am paying for it today. Today there was a whole mahushlah over Squirrel's car. He just burned everything he had to get his car towed and we are sacrificing electric bill money this month to get it fixed. *fingers crossed at that it's the cheaper repair and not the one involving cylinders and/or an axil* Gods I hate being poor. It is exhausting. In other news, the weather turning means my sinuses are finally clearing which is a HUGE help. Swimming at the lake is done for the season though, and I shall miss it.

It's this cascade of terrible decisions with long lasting effects both for Russia and Europe in general, and I'm just sitting there wincing, wishing they'd hurry up have the coup already, until finally it happens and I can heave a sigh of relief. It amazes me still how worked up I get over it, especially given how far out of my patch early modern Russia is.

I missed one first Season Episode, "Too Short a Season."
