* Today the sky is actually mostly blue. (More blue inland, fading to gray over the bay, but much improved. There was a pall of matte grey smoke over eveything still, making the sky look painted and flat. It is better for breathing than it was, but still not great.

We went swimming anyway, and the temperature was perfect for that, the cool of the lake the perfect antidote for the muggy heat. All this was a lot of driving. I am slightly more hopeful it is belts and not breaks due to the subtleties of how it drives. My hope is to take it in Monday and talk them into checking their work. Tires and wipers are likely to be 80ish and absolutel need doing this month and i am slowly bleeding money. I'm rather scared to check, but i will have to before monday. I suspect I won't be servicing the medical debt this month which will put me further behind, but at least the lights are staying on.

* Want impeachment? Best to pressure your Congress Critters (Both parties). The 25th Amendment is not designed for this situation, and significantly harder than Impeachment. This fits beautifully the "high crimes and misdemeanors" rubric. For 45 to fit the 25th Amendment we'd need someone to get him to a competent neurologist for a thorough examination and tests and a clear diagnosis with likely second opinions on something absolutely incapacitating, like a massive brain tumor or a debilitating stroke. No way is 45 letting a real doctor get anywhere near him as can be seen from events during the election; it's unlikely that something measurable on that scale would be found even if he did get a proper exam; and it is wildly unlikely that his entire cabinet would turn on him at once and every Republican in the Senate and house suddenly grow both spines and develop patriotism. If the spines and patriotism thing were likely to happen, Impeachment would be faster and easier than the 25th Amendment route. Just saying. Remember, Reagan started showing Alzheimer's symptoms well before they decided to run him, and they let him have access to the button for 8 years even as he noticeably deteriorated. Nothing short of a major stroke or similar is going to even have a prayer of succeeding and I'd not hold my breath even then. 25th amendment is designed to be incredibly hard to invoke for a reason, so don't pin your hopes on it. Best to pressure your critters relentlessly instead and that's still not all that likely until the investigations conclude, and maybe not then as Republicans have been crystal clear on party before country.

I had this strange feeling of rightness, and then it dawned on me, I was half half listening in two languages while tidying up bowls and such.

* I went out for another twenty dollars worth of meds I can't afford for the upper respiratory infection that is currently causing the problem, as I need those if I want to sleep instead of just coughing my lungs out. In the end the antibiotics cleared out the deep lung infection, fever, and the nasty one in my mouth, but It's looking like the sinus infection and half the cough are viral, which is a thing that happens with me. It's looking like I can tolerate short bursts of extremely low dose prednisone better than the normal dose which is super good to know. It's not something I'd do to myself voluntarily except as an extreme measure, but I wasn't trapped in bed like last time. In any case that is over with, today being final dose. I catch one thing and other things take advantage and move in. I can sleep if I prop and take the meds, so out I went. The short trip to the OTC drugs and book drop post rush hour was also a trial run to see if I am safe to drive, as the streets were lightly trafficked. I have doctor tomorrow again. We'll see how it goes.

* I've been craving Mountain Goats and Bright Eyes pretty much constantly since early January. It finally dawned on me that I am mourning. Oh, not the acute stage. I want things like Cohen's Hallelujah for the memorial service and things like the Pogues for the Wake. No one is as good for a wake as the Pogues, I've found. No, Bright Eyes and Mountain Goats are for the long slow moths of grieving. After my Soldier, I'd sometimes wake up to discover I'd put "Easy/Lucky/Free" on auto repeat at some point in the night and had curled up around the boom box like a fist, my ear pressed to the speaker. I'm not entirely sure why they suit that stage of grief so well, but this time I have a theory. Alexander Adams once said something in a concert song intro about working with At Risk Kids and how they liked the darkest songs the best. I think it's the same phenomenon. Songs like that aren't pretending everything is all right. As beautiful and intricate as the poetry is in "Tallahassee," it is in the service of describing in the most intimate of detail exactly how bad things are. The incredibly vulnerability in a lot of connor Oberst's work (I have often wondered what it must be like to sing over and over about a failed suicide attempt in concerts, for example. Is it torment or catharsis?), and the raw pain in his broken voice juxtaposed with often soothing melody line really does feel like working through some serious shit. This is the music of things gone terribly wrong, and yet, and yet it helps to have the pain and fucked upedness validated. It rather helps me get on with it anyway.

I've been morning my country instead of yet another dead lover, but it's the same principle, really. Of course "If you're still free start running away!" and "The Cellar Door is an Open throat." I wish my boom box still worked so I could curl up Around "Easy/Lucky/Free" again without the neighbors wanting to kill me.

* TNG Rewatch, Season 5/6:

- Time's Arrow. (I'm combining a two parter). So this is the one where Data goes back in time and an away team goes after him. I remember liking this one when it was new. I love Guinan's dress. I love Whoopi Goldberg's performance in the Twain intro scene even more. I was way more up on my Clemens when this first aired than I am now, but I do remember having serious issues with where this was on Clemens' real life history and thinking his reaction was not what one would expect this late in his life, given his depression and solipsism, but I'm honestly not up to doing the research it would take to see if this recollection is correct. Picard and Guinan have real chemistry in this one.

* I spent 20 hoursish of Thursday in bed with a severe chronic pain incident. It's been bad this week generally. Luckily the guests showed up in the most functional window I've had in about all week. If I forget a thing I promised, if I make a serious mistake, I apologize. My head feels like a rotting cabbage on the inside without the meds and with them, I'm still in a really distracting amount of pain, plus drugged.
