* I know I haven't written about the people who died in a nursing home literally across the street from a working hospital with power, basically because the idea of it is so distressing and horrible and able bodied person lazy and pointless, because how fucking much effort would i have taken to move vulnerable people literally across the street to safety? I bet a lot less than setting up fans that weren't enough, and why the fuck wasn't the AC hooked up to the back up generator? They had power to run fans. That has me furious about asshole penny pinching nursing home admin who gave no fucks for vulnerable elders in their care. The place my Mom chose for herself not only had a back up generator, but a system where if the back up fucking failed in a major storm or flood there was a third emergency system where she could hook up her oxygen machine and survive like that for days. how do I know this? Because we talked over her contingency plans in advance of a big storm their the last winter before she died. (She liked to talk these sorts of things over with another competent adult, and my father being dead, and me sharing the trait of having multiple contingency plans being a comfort, she was apt to do this with me). They had a bus evacuation system if they needed to move everyone with special transport for the full nursing care building and designated evacuation locations depending on the disaster. It is possible to plan this shit out in advance if the people running a place are ethical. Those deaths didn't have to happen if anyone at all with a smidgen of authority gave too shits about the people in that facility, both as far as planning for predicable disaster (It's Florida. Hurricanes are seasonal and flooding a predictable thing that happens often enough to plan for.), and in the immediate "This isn't safe! We need to evacuate the medically fragile across the street" sense.

Well, it looks like a lot of people feel that way. The facility is closed as a crime scene, and there are likely to be a variety of criminal charges. Some of the likely charges have sentences of up to 30 years. Good. Lock the bastards up. Eight people died because of their callousness.

* I got crap sleep again as I'm still recovering from the pneumococcal vaccine. There's a steady upward trend, and again, I'll happily trade a week or so of this for 10 or more times when I don't get pneumonia. I woke with the shakes, so gave myself an extra half hour nap, as often the reset helps. It did in this case, though I'm sluggish. I managed to get out at a reasonable time to Honest Mechanic. It's looking like a $60.00 valve job. I have strong hopes of this being the last of the car things needing doing. This is taking everything I have left for the month except car insurance, so I'm completely fucked for other bills, but engine health is important. I go back Tuesday.

When I got home, the B Disabled parking was open, and that's not much further than my actual stolen spot and has the added benefit of being right by B recycling. All I had to carry was the empty disposable tea cup from the mechanics, so I tossed it in the trash and checked the cardboard recycling. Thee was not only an ideal bottom pad shape, but also a flower box in the perfect shape to hold the thing open. It will lose shape as it soaks, but I left the car with the seating propped open to air and dry in the sun. This process has been slow, but there has been noticeable improvement. Squirrel has been changing the cardboard as he has access to it at work, and I'd guess there is about half as much water in there as there was the day I bailed, maybe less, as it's hard to tell how much is in the seats, but when I opened it, it's more a drip than a waterfall.

I came home to have the toilet paper holder fall off. I was expecting it as I had to epoxy the other end last week. There is no permanent solution as the guy who built this place was terrible, so I periodically have to reattach them. I ended up making a mess as my hands are shaky, but I've hopes of another 6-8 months till the next incident. Then I got to sweep and mop the kitchen floor as Squirrel lost a piece of the blender when he unloaded the dish washer. (He did search last night). I am happy it was on the floor as the next step was going to involve taking that whole side of the kitchen apart. Still, the shakes are well back.

Squirrels project we were doing the scavenger hunt earlier in the week to get low cost ingredients for went off beautifully by the way.

* ...And I think I just killed the microwave by forgetting to turn the fan on before starting pasta on the stove top. I know better, but I'm exhausted and shaky so forgot. The fix for it is heartbreakingly easy according to the internet, The problem is, the asshole who built this place mounted things wrong. I can see half of the two screws I would need to unscrew to get the access panel open, but to unscrew them, I would have to dismount the entirety of the kitchen cabinets, which is absolutely out of the question physically. I am not tall enough with the ladder even if I did have several people to help me and somewhere to put everything in the fucking cabinets. Because the asshole who built my kitchen didn't measure anything correctly. I have unplugged it to make the screaming stop. There is a chance it will dry on it's own, as it did the other time I forgot to turn on the fan, but that time the alarm stopped in about half an hour and it's now been an hourish. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. A field trip into Squirrel's cave suggests he's broken the other micro wave. No fucking way can I afford a new one and where would I put it?

Addendum: 9:50. I plugged it in to see if I could reheat the tisane, and it is working again. Fuck, that was scary.

Addendum 9:58. Microwave starts screaming again. I'll try it again tomorrow.

* I was exhausted, so went to bed super early. Unfortunately, I forgot the cough, so I ended up spending my three hours of coughing in bed not sleeping instead of spending it doing something useful. Sleep, when I got it, was not good. Today's mission was to take Squirrel to get an elderly truck he'd been gifted, which needed a new battery, but otherwise works. It turned out the battery was too far gone for the truck to make it more than a block, so I drove to the battery place where I also got my tires. I'd noticed the passenger tire was low on Monday when I last took it out, and had added air to the to do list. we pulled in and the tire guys gave it a horrified look and asked if we were there for tires. "I hope you didn't buy tat here." "I did, a couple weeks ago. I have a receipt." The man helping us today was the one who looked rather like Tyr from Almighty Johnson's and remembered me and my battery from last Spring. He took the tire off, was horrified that they'd sold it to me and replaced it free. Squirrel's battery was about 30.00, so the trip was a win all around, although it did take all afternoon and more than a quarter tank of gas. Squirrel replaced his battery and followed me home so I could get him if there were problems.

In other news, assholes moved into the apartment we share space with. I say assholes advisedly as they know I am disabled, but are clearly shell gaming the spot, moving a different car in whenever they move the other car out, so we have no change at a turn, knowing full well I'm disabled and need a spot. I feel like this is cheating. It's one thing to come home and find the spot full as the luck of the draw, but I feel like going to those lengths to fuck us over knowing full well we were lied to also is super dickish. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, as I'd just park in the disabled spot, but someone with a temp tag good until February is perma parked there (as in, we don;t think they've moved in in the last month). I'm guessing they are really hurt or ill and just don't leave the house for non-doctor things, so I don't begrudge them. Someone is also perma parked in B disabled, which leaves me A on the far side of the complex or random street parking up to a block away. I know objectively, it's not a long distance, for me, walking to and from parking now eats a quarter to a third of the steps I have for a given trip this last couple of weeks and given how bad those two weeks have been physically while the able bodied people hog the shared parking.... I've only spoken to them on the phone, but I hate them now.

Tomorrow, I’m also short sleeped, this time to find out how much the check engine light is going to cost me.

* I've bailed out of AHS: Cult. It was a mix of problems. the first is that while it is important to do art about microaggressions, harassment, the terror that is the straight white conservative cis male, and the horror overtaking our country, this is too on the nose, and I spend my evenings documenting this stuff and have dealt with various versions of it all my life moving about in the world. The result is it's to preachy and preaching to the choir all at once. I might have been more receptive to watching this as entertainment in another year, but this is not the time to do it this way, or it is the time to do art about it, but a little more subtle. One or the other or both. Another problem has to do with some fundamental problems I tend to have with Ryan Murphy around race. Sometimes he does better than others, but it's an area where I don't trust him and nothing I've seen so far this season around race has made me happy. I am also really not trusting his handling of mental illness here. I am hoping it will get better, but I don't trust where this is going or that things will be handled well given past experience. (Look, I love his aesthetics and when he's on, he does some really interesting things. I have enjoyed a bunch of his other things, but he tends to be pretty problematic and sometimes the one balances the other out and sometimes it doesn't for me. YMMV).

Lastly, This whole thing is pretty triggery given my personal history, and with the first factor in play, this is not a good thing for me to be watching in combination. If I'm going to do something this rough to myself I'd rather take another crack at season two of Hannibal a that has a whole lot of things relative to my interests in exchange for a similar set of triggers. This is frankly not giving me anything back in exchange for dragging me through the worst of reddit while triggering me on my personal stuff. I had reached the bit when the cheeto brother was trying to get the woman with the phobias to let him in, doing all the horrible shit rapists and abusers do to women, playing on socialization, and I thought, "I would rather be scrubbing out the litter boxes. That at least results in clean litter boxes.

So I'm out. Maybe he'll do something amazing later, but I'm pretty sure this particular ride is not for me.

* I struggled with what to say about Will when it was on, my thoughts were complicated and not easy to put into words that would make good sense. I don't agree with everything in here, and I DID want a second season to explore the Will/Kit relationship. I also have a lot of thoughts about race in the show: the things they did well and the things I'm still really angry about. For the most part though, this did a better job than I could possibly do talking about the things I was struggling to put into words, and I'm very glad someone managed it.

* I do not care about which politicians view porn. I assume most of them at one time or another. The only time I care is if it is child pornography or the person is say, showing it to children, or viewing it somewhere it's imposing on other people. (I had a job one summer in an electronics store where the salesmen were frequently group watching porn in the back and would yell if I had to interrupt them to come sell a TV or whatever, and i had to eat lunch in a breakroom with all those breasts and vaginas staring at me, all of which I resented. I would have given no fucks if their homes were plastered with porn magazines and if they were jerking off at home, but I felt I shouldn't have to deal with it in a work environment, and I also felt if I had to work, so should they, and I especially shouldn't get yelled at for trying to get one of them to serve customers for the things I wasn’t allowed to sell them. WTF did they want me to tell the family wanting a new TV? Perhaps, "Sorry, all the salesmen are jerking off right now, so you'll have to wait until somebody cums?" Unless you work somewhere selling porn or live sex shows or the like, I feel like you shouldn't be required to watch other people masturbate. So no porn on the library computers where everyone is involved whether they want to be or not or on the computer at the Middle School, or... you get the idea). That's not the case here as far as I can tell. I do not like the man in question and find his politics disgusting, but he hasn't done anything wrong and I strongly disapprove of sex shaming people over private, consensual acts. Whatever he might or might not have done while watching that video is none of my business. I do not care either way, and I resent having to hear about it, particularly from supposedly leftish type people who very likely have looked at porn themselves. It's gross and hypocritical. Odds are this is the last mention I'm going to make about this particular instance, unless it turns out he was making interns watch him jerk it or something. Then, I care, but not for this.

* I was really irritated with myself for being foggy, slow, and headachey today, but then I remembered, oh right, I didn't just use all the spoons by bedtime yesterday, I also spent three hours coughing in the wee hours (likely the pneumococcal vaccine), and my body is also still dealing with the influenza jab. Given the givens, I'm actually doing remarkably well. I did wake up with the lungs clearing, so I have hopes of getting past things in the usual week. Again, these are temporary physical conveniences and well worth it given the consequences of NOT doing it.

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.

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.

Of course. This really is a good week for imaginary porn parodies.

* 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).

* Not content to simply commit us to forever war in Afghanistan and order increased deployments, 45 decided today to deliberately sew chaos and confusion amoung our troops by sending the order for the trans military ban in place, doing such a shitty job of it that no one knows how implantation will work and what will happen to active duty trans soldiers and their medical care. There is an absolute ban on recruitment, which is one of the few coherent things in the policy. Why does he hate our troops so? why does he work so hard to demoralize them and harm military readiness? I still need to do more reading, and I have a ton of things in my queue. I am exhausted, so likely, there will be more tomorrow.

In any case, we have six months to fight this with protests and lawsuits. Calling your Congress Critter can't hurt either, as they've started doing some end runs around 45's shittier foreign policy things.

* My Thursday socializing got moved to Wednesday. I made rose (with a touch of lavender and coconut) cupcakes which we had with vanilla icing and assorted cake condiments, and served blackberry sage sweet tea and my tart lemonade. The wind started coming up around 8 so I took them to the store and home as the long flat stretch between my town and the next one north is not safe with bald tires at posted speed in high winds. I have hopes of wind shield wipers in the next couple of days. Which specific day depends on how I feel and the weather.

* 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 didn't get anything close to enough sleep, though I did dream a really excellent YA dystopian novel I wish I had the skill to write. When I stared the car the unearthly scream was back so I don't even know what to do now. It was shorter than before the fix, so I do think it's belt related. It was a little chillier than ideal for swimming though the weather was quite nice. We went in anyway, but it was more standing around in the water than swimming proper. There was a nice couple with a very well behaved bulldog who was not fond of the water. Mostly we had a picnic and then I took MrBumblepants on errands downtown. I also hit the library and priced new wipers, which I definitely can't afford. I know, I know, I need to sell off more of my collection, but I simply haven't been up to it. I am tired and my gums are being problematic. I wish I could go to a dentist, but instead I'm pretty clearly going to require narcotics if I want to eat dinner. One of the four rescue basil plants I got in the last two weeks isn't going to make it, and I think I'm going to lose three or four rescue lettuce starts, but otherwise the vegetables are going well. (I'm not sure I conveyed how many lettuce starts I scored Monday, but we are talking 30-40 which is a ridiculous amount in a garden this size. I'm going to have black tomatoes! I'm checking them every day now as two are close to being ready. The carnations are nearly done for the season, it looks like, and I shall miss them. The pain is bad enough between the swollen gums and assorted mouth sores and my chronic pain stuff, that I'm tempted to give the fuck up on today and go back to bed, but there is no point in trying this early.

- Chain of Command (parts 1 & 2 Combined). How to undermine crew morale and battle readiness. It is particularly hard watching TNG Ferengi in the current political climate. 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 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.

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.

It's sort of a master class in making the person examine what was wrong with what he just said.

* 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.

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.
