* Me watching a mediocre archaeology documentary: Well that's not true. I can think of half a dozen proofs this "expert" is wrong of the top of my head in seconds. Not only have I seen plenty of pictures, read a whole book about them once, but I have actually SEEN one in person in the University Museum multiple times both on family visits and periodically on class trips throughout my growing up. I took Skye to see it that time I took him east to meet my family in the mid-90's. If I, a random reasonably educated person with an interest in history, but no training at all in neolithic archaeology or history, know you are wrong about this big obvious common knowledge thing, how can I trust a single thing he is going to say in the approximately hour and a half left of this thing? Does it not caste a doubt on the whole rest of the information in this show?

Me: Spots other, smaller things I know contradict findings I've read about in archaeological press.

Me: That is a mighty big leap on such small evidence.

Me: This is no longer a mediocre Documentary; this is a bad documentary.

Me: Okay, now they are just making things up whole sale and not clearly separating things extremely likely from the evidence from shit they made up about specific circumstances and motives related to events for which we have no archeological evidence. They flat out can't know this because these folks didn't have writing and there was no associated contemporaneous nearby site that was destroyed in a way that would render this kind of information. It's not "re-enacting" if you are selling an historical fiction you made up as a thing that actually happened.

Me: Grinding teeth. This is no longer a documentary; this is bad historical fiction.

Me: Turns it off halfish way through.

...And this is why when I had to show students historical documentaries in class, at the end of period, I'd do corrections based on notes I'd made of inaccuracies I'd spotted or things more recent research had debunked. It was much easier on my nerves and I felt it instilled a healthy skepticism.

* Apparently, I'm still angry about Penny Dreadful. I am such a sucker for that aesthetic and so much potential, but the racism poisoned it, and the shitty handling and murder of the trans character, and the crappy handling of bisexuality, and the way they basically pissed on everything Eva Green had done with Vanessa in the finale. It teased me with all this stuff I wanted, and did everything possible to make be feel gross for having been taken in and watched it.

* Today I gimped all the way to the book drop and back. It infuriates be how painful and exhausting this is, as the distance would have meant nothing to me before I got sick. Books needed to go, so I went. I lunged when I got home, and my legs went out from under me when I got up to start dinner, but it was a short fall and the sofa was there to catch me so I'm not hurt. I did use up most of the pain resistance and spoons, but I expected that. Litter really needs changing, but it will have to wait and all the things needing feeding got fed before I left as I knew it would be bad.

We scored a car appointment for Monday, but Squirrel is bleeding money on ubers to work until then, and I am trapped here. The library will carry until then with what I dropped today.

Thanks to a kind donation, we will have enough cash by Monday to fix the battery wiring assuming nothing is dramatically more wrong than expected. I'm still down about 70.00 on bills, plus we need cat food and toilet paper, but we will survive the month, I think, assuming no more emergencies happen. I'll still need to catch up somehow, and we still need front tires before the rains come for sure, but given this car is just old enough to drink, these small things going wrong is understandable.

* I also voted today. Yes, it is July and no one is thinking about voting, but my state has a lot of primaries. I know, I know, it's an off year and no one is thinking about voting right now, and the only races on the ballet were Port and Council-at-Large. Not glamorous, I know, but important. It's in these little local elections republicans kick our asses because they vote in every single one. We NEED to vote in every single one. Every single primary. (In my state it's open primaries, with top two going on to the general. This means that you can get two Republicans in November or two Democrats, or a Democrat and a Green or Libertarian. Primary turn out can determine if it's a lose/lose election or a win/win. People of Washington? Let's always aim for the Win/Win). Every single race even if's it's just for dog catcher. Every single General election. Yes even in an off year.

Vote early if you can, because it's better to find out you've been summarily disenfranchised by some bullshit Republican algorithm that decides there can only be one registered Jane Smith or Maria Sanchez in the entire country and therefore all of them are voting illegally early. The earlier you find out, the more time you have to fight to get your citizen's rights back from the Autocrats. Voting in primaries does that too. Better to find out in July and have time to get it sorted for November.

If you have a chance to vote? Do it. Use it or lose it.

* I was reading Dusk or Dark or Dawn or Day by @Seanan McGuire today and Tavy the Tiny Terror got really excited about the book for some reason and was aggressively sniffing and cuddling and head rubbing it for about 75 pages, before lightly licking my ear on Important Cat Business.

* On Paul Ryan's Latest Plan to Punish the Poor: Paul Ryan wants to remind you that the economy has no effect on how many people need public assistance according to Republican fantasies, and therefore more people needing help after Republican deregulation crashed the economy is proof those are bad programs which should lose their funding. He wants to remind you that money spent on keeping people fed and housed is a waste of money that could better be spent on corporate welfare and tax breaks for the 1%. After all, he believes choosing not to be born wealthy is proof you made bad choices and Christian values mean you need to be further punished by having what little you have taken away from you and given to people who don't need it as punishment.

He constantly sites Christian values for inflicting this sort of cruelty on the poor. Seriously, look it up.
