* Look, y'all know I despise everything about 45, but I absolutely agree the Debt Ceiling needs to go and have been of that opinion for decades. It's not necessary. Sensible countries don't HAVE one. If Congress appropriates money, Treasury should just be allowed to raise it; if Congress doesn't WANT to spend the money, they shouldn't vote to appropriate it. The Debt Ceiling has always been an unnecessary step, but Republican Congress Critters not bright enough to understand that refusing to pay your credit card bill does not mean you haven't spent the money and only makes things dramatically worse rather quickly has turned it into an endlessly recurring crisis for most of my adult life. Removing the step removes the source of economic instability with no down side.

* The smoke is still an issue today, but less extreme, and the temperature being reasonable really helps. I am still getting that delightful stabbed in the back feeling when I move, and my lungs are not great, but I'm actually functional. I dragged myself out on time for the car appointment. it went so fast my tea didn't have time to cool enough to drink. There is a suspicion a bolt might need replacing. I am to bring it back if the chittering starts again. Bolt replacement will be free if so, because Honest Mechanic is a superstar. I forgot to ask about the engine light, alas. I am still quietly panicking about bills, but I am not convinced I'm well enough to do ebay without error, so I'll likely hold another day at least until I'm struggling less with things like breathing.

- 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.

* Rejoice, for the Car emergency is ended! I anal retentively ordered a Blue Cab for an hour before the appointment for fear of the cab coming late. I foraged, as it's just around the corner from Honest Mechanic (Alignment and Brakes Plus Bellingham). In the event things ran about a half hour later than projected with my car, but this was all to the good as it turned out that when they opened it up, the alternator was not fried as previously believed, but chock full of belt frags that had essentially frozen it in place, and labor at Honest Mechanic is much cheaper than a new alternator. The result is that there was enough left over that between us, we had enough money for the whole electric bill, plus meds for both of us and cat food.

If anyone donated and would like a refund for the meds money and kibbles, the fundraiser having only been for car repair and electric, PM me and I'll see what I can do next month. Thank you again donators. The lights will stay on at the cat asylum.

I went to pharmacy, library, and to get kibbles and spend the last of this month's food stamps on magic apricot straws. The car battery is fully charged. Squirrel got off to his game on time. As I wrote this, I was full, the forage put away, and Tavy was in his room playing with his new pharmacy bag. All is well with the world.

* The House has voted to completely defund the Election Assistance Commission presumably in response to reporting that the Russians have compromised election databases in 39 states and have interfered with the 2016 elections on all levels, since the Election Assistance Commission exists to fight exactly this sort of tampering. It is looking like Republicans feel that letting Putin delete eligible voters from the rolls and pick winners in our elections is way more important than patriotism, Democracy, etc.. I can't think of a single other reason they would take such strong steps to render our elections easier to hack instead of taking the logical step of dramatically increasing funding for the sake of National Security in the face of evidence that our system is vulnerable. Party before Country seems to once again be the motivating principle for this decision. Every single person who voted for this is complicit. Every single one of them decided they would rather be in power in a Russian client state than take the chance of a fair election in a free country.

* I spent most of the week pondering why we've pulled out of the Paris Climate Accords. Objectively the Accords are good for business and the planet. Pulling out does not benefit 45 personally on a financial level as far as I can tell, which is his usual reason for doing anything. It is bad for business and property owners. Exxon and the other oil companies are against it. It's likely going to harm workers as there are already more jobs in clean energy than there are in coal and sticking with the goals we agreed on would create jobs. His stated reason are entirely lies as China and India did not "get a better deal" and the "evidence" he sited was clearly pulled out of his ass. I was honestly stumped. Thursday night, a friend pointed out that he's likely doing it for the benefit of the Russian Oil Company, Rosneft, and so it's likely a favor for Putin and his Kleptocrats at the expense of our country and the long term survival of civilization and the World. Ah. I have mulled it since and it does seem the only logical explanation.

* There is a hole in my ceiling and I am cleaning up plaster mess, but I no longer have a drip. The bad news is I woke up sick. They are giving it time to dry and should be back next week to plaster. It did mean two men in work boots with ladders and tools, which Tavy did not like. he held out until they had to come into my room to shut off the water, at which point he hid. We did get back to sleep by lunch time, and he curled up where he could look right into my face from close up when he was worried. Oh, and we pilled poor LM.

Judging by type of cough, this is likely viral. It's debilitating and messing hard with my ability to concentrate, is making me irritatingly emotional, and will likely mess with the quality of my posting this weekend, but I am not expecting this one to escalate like the two month pneumonia of February/March did.

* Midsummer Night's Dream Cow Poem: http://lettersfromtitan.tumblr.com/post/160554986261/magic-and-moonlit-wings-daughter-of-prospero

* They actually ran the Dick Cavett with Robin Williams. Part of why it was so magic at the time was that he was only on Mork and Mindy, or in clubs doing Improve. There would be comedy specials soon after, which we loved, but back then, unless you could go to see him live, you didn't get to see what he was like outside of that half hour show, which we mostly had to listen to on the radio as choir practice let out when the show was starting. If we rushed home we could see the last act. There was no looking them up on line back then and no video tape. If you missed a thing you missed it all all you could do was hope for reruns. I'm not sure I can convey any of this to anyone younger than me, that we had literally never seen anything like this, and we had no way of going back and watching this particular performance again. I saw this show once nearly four decades ago, and my Mother and I would still reference it when she was alive, our mutual experience of it, the only real proof we had that we'd seen it at all, much as with that mind blowing Richard Pryor show that got cancelled almost right away as it freaked out the Network Suits.

It turned out it was a two night thing, with Robin Williams doing his first ever talk show interview, which I had not seen as a child in '79, as the first night. It was the second night that Mother and I saw with the improvised pseudo Shakespeare. His humor turns out to be sporadically rather more casually racist than I remember him being later in his career, which breaks my heart more than a little, even though I know his later stuff wasn't cringe worthy that way. The pseudo Shakespeare was delightful though, and way more racy and homoerotic than I was able to understand at that age. It holds up, where so much of the rest of it doesn't. It is kind of amazing to me that Cavett was able to keep up as well as he did, even knowing Cavett had a background in stand up and was a comedy writer before he because an interviewer. Robin Williams eventually outpaced him, but the by play was hilarious and they really did shockingly well together. I am very glad I got to see it, even if the rest of it was a tad disappointing.

The crowd work had a few cute moments, but mostly was piffle that didn't really go anywhere. I think the more focused premise in the Shakespeare bit helped by giving them a framework to hang the nonsense on, making the jokes more apt to land.

I am suspecting I conflated it with a second occasion as there is a bit I remember that wasn't in there.

Seriously folks. Congress is on recess. Not only are there the Saturday tax day protests all over, but now is an excellent time to turn up at town halls and Congress Critter's district offices, and/or call to insist health care should be a right.

* ...And the foot thing is postponed til nearly the end of the month. It is nobody's fault. A family emergency on the part of my doctor requiring travel. I really wanted to get it over with and the reschedule doesn't give me the weekend to recover, but family absolutely does come first and it's better she go. I managed to resprain the ankle I mildly sprained... whichever day it was I scored the starts. It's bad enough I'm using the crutch around the houe and it's not the ankle attached to the foot I cut open, which means I'd likely have had to get the wheel chair out if they had been cutting my foot open in a few hours. It is very annoying that my ankles sprain themselves when I'm just shuffling around, but it's an ex athlete thing. That decade I spent distance running over rough terrain and concrete and endlessly injuring them when I was young, coming back to haunt me. I don't have a lot of cartilage and they are fragile. I'm lucky I never hurt myself dancing. That's a good way to take out a knee, for example. I knew athletes who started knees surgeries in high school. The running destroyed my ankles and the AS is gnawing my spine and hip joints, but my knees are doing pretty well given the pounding I gave them with the running and dancing and Wing Chun.

* TOS Rewatch, Season 1:

- "Devil in the Dark:" This one starts pretty well, actually. The set is above average, they quickly establish the terror of the miners and create suspense. The first death is before the credits. It's so weird when ToS is actually competently executed. Of course, it's an all human sausagefest in the mines because in the Federation only men mine as was established in the first Harvey Mudd episode, and ToS is extremely human centric even by later star Trek standards. I don't know how to feel about Kirk and Spock exchanging positions on the Horta. Nimoy's performance really is haunting. There is a reason this one is on most favorite episodes list, because this one really does work as an entertainment and a message.

- "Errand of Mercy:" A cold war episode. Prime Directive? What Prime Directive. Let's go introduce ourselves to a Medieval tech planet and damn the consequences. Yes, I know there is more going on than meets the eye, but the Feds and the Klingons don't know that. When the locals point out they are not really being given a choice they aren't wrong. For all the pretty talk from the Feds they are colonizers here, just politer ones than the Klingons. They consider themselves in a position to judge whether this culture is worthy. Kirk's fury at pacifism and his foolishness in somehow not being aware that bugs and hidden cameras are a thing even though that's old tech when these shows were made and I doubt the Federation has completely lost the skill to make and use surveillance tech. Why even would you send Kirk on this mission given how completely incapable of impulse control he is and how he doesn't do any diplomacy that doesn't involve sticking his Dick in something. I do get that they are poking at the idea of how similar or different Feds and Klingons are but it's just slow and clunky, especially compared to the much easier to watch horta episode right before it.

* So not only is Gorsuch out right lying in his commercials that he is backing the poor and minorities against corporations when the exact opposite is true, but he's a literal plagarist on a fairly large scale hich rather undermines his intellectual claims.

For serious, call your Senators and encourage them to block or stand firm if they are already blocking this nomination if you are able to. (I know some people can't for a variety of reasons). Remember, he believes that corporations have first amendment rights that Trump those of mere human employees. He is worse than Scalia and will likely live a very long time. Remember that if Democrats cave now, it will enshrine the idea that it is completely acceptable to refuse to even consider nominee by an opposing party so as to steal a nomination, as the Republicans have done in this case. If they kill the filibuster, they kill it. Better to fight and die on the moral high ground than roll over in expectation that they will keep using the threat every single time. Rolling over now for a vague promise we know Republicans won't keep next time is only making things worse.

* The cherry blossoms are out. They always remind me of My Soldier. We fell in love in Winter. We were young and he had not enlisted yet. He had long dark hair, and though his mother was white, he looked Native like his father. He wore a long grey coat and a fedora. I know, I know, fedoras are now a universal sign of assholery, but in 1990, the hat was unusual and quirky. With his long coat and his ling hair, the hat gave him a unique, vaguely 19th century look. He hated shoes even mor that I do, and had these huge feet with long toes he used like extra fingers. I picture him in Winter dressed like that, barefoot in the snow for the dash from his house to his mother's car, unwilling to put on shoes for the brief trip, as he always drove barefoot.

The street where he lived in 1991 was lined on both sides with cherry trees. They were intriguing shapes in Winter, lichen covered and Gothic. In spring they would burst forth into pink glory and the petals would rain down slowly, and cling to his feet, half crushed. The symbolism is not lost on me. He died in full flower, beautiful, and far too young.

Cherry blossoms forever remind me of him. Barefoot. Beloved. Missed.

* Trump is such a coward he is keeping out a one year old with cancer for fear that ze's a terrorist.

* Trump threatened to invade Mexico when on the phone to their President. Flynn also openly threatening to invade Iran. And did I mention Trump threw a tantrum then hung up on Australia’s Turnbull?

* In case it's not clear, I do have substantive complaints about Gorsuch around things like Hobby Lobby, Extreme religious over reach, the whole citizens have no right to sue cops for murdering their relatives thing, worker's and women's rights generally, etc..

* Given the republicans made up a brand new rule that the President is suddenly only allowed to nominate for the Supreme court in the first three years of his term regardless of what the Constitution says, lied that it was not a brand new thing they made up specifically because they believe that only republican presidents have the right to pick supreme court nominees, and vowed to hold it open another four years if Hillary won, I am having a hard time taking them seriously when they exhort Democrats to "rise above politics" and vote on Neil Gorsuch when they wouldn't "rise above politics" themselves to even give Merrick Garland a hearing. Fuck that! They broke it, they bought it.

They need to nominate Merrick Garland or some other person with bipartisan support. If not, Democrats need to display spine.

Customs agents broke the law to obey the president. The rule of law is failing under the agenda of the executive branch.

* I wrote this elsewhere explaining why I didn't take to Downton Abbey and why Gosford park is world's better. I've said and written versions of this over the years, but I'm posting again, because seriously, go watch Gosford Park if you haven't. To be clear, acting, costumes, set design, attention to detail is brilliant for both, but Downton is fundamentally flawed on a writing level in my opinion.

Downton Abbey is fundamentally conservative. I did find the first season compelling anyway, but by second season it just made me want to go rewatch the brilliant Gosford Park instead. I think I bailed after three? Something like that, on the grounds that it was just a pretty soap opera with politics I didn't much like.

Julian Ffellows, the guy who made Downton was a consultant on Altman's Gosford, so the look and the period detail is similar, but Altman was deconstructing the country house murder story and the period stratified class system in a gay friendly, rooting for the downtrodden way. Mr. Ffellows is glamorizing the very class system Mr. Altman was tearing down with a tropey gay villain as the poison cherry on top.

* Anecdotally, this makes sense to me. Given my medical history, I've dealt with a ridiculous number of doctors. If you exclude surgeons, one occasionally gets a decent male specialist or gp, but usually one has to fight incredibly hard and waste a huge amount of energy to get them to take symptoms seriously or run even basic tests (like an AIDs test for a sexually adventurous college student, for example. It was the early '90's and I had listed eight partners on my form. he insisted we don't have HIV much at this college. O.o. Seriously O.o. Protease inhibitors weren't invented yet). With the women doctors one occasionally gets a bad one, but mostly, they take the symptoms seriously, run appropriate tests, and will actually treat life threatening illnesses instead of pretending they don't exist.

* The snow stuck, but looking out my window, Monday, I suspected that if I could make it across the parking lot, I'd be fine everywhere else. This was correct. Getting in and out of the apartment complex was the only really dangerous bit. The roads and sidewalks elsewhere were wet, but clear. Baked goods wait for no one. I wore myself out. There were tins of cookies to deliver, the foraging, the Post Office, turning in bureaucracy, the pharmacy, the library, the bank. I ran out of leg well before getting home and spent time on the floor of the Post Office, and more draped exhaustively over the display counter.

* I first noticed Millennial queer young adults treating me as an Elder the last time I went back to college for teaching re-cert. I was still in my thirties. While there is something pleasing about being listened to that way and being asked questions about what it was like, it is a terrible thing that so many of the rest of us weren't here to BE Elders. That so many of us died in the epidemic, many of the ones who would have been my generation's elders. I think of that a lot, how many of us were lost to the epidemic and the violence against us. It's still bad like that in the trans community. We keep losing so many of the women of colour in particular. No one should be an elder in their thirties and forties, and yet this is where we are. Just having survived to middle age is still a miracle for us. It shouldn't be. We need to be better as a country, as a world.

By the time I got there, they were rebooting registers. I got my things anyway, and they said it was all right to unload my gear while they waited to get back on line. (About five minutes by the time I'd gotten my pam, parchment paper, baggies, etc). I chattered with the register folks and wrote up my check so the line could move as fast as possible once the computers were up. In that short time the rain turned to big wet flurries. In the five or so minutes it took to get home, it had begun to stick. I must go out tomorrow, so fingers crossed it has melted by afternoon.
