* Friday was an errand day. Among those errands is the most important one of all: Voting. Yes, I know it's an off year election, but early voting has started in some states including mine, and those glamorous local elections matter to your quality of life. They can mean the difference between clean water and danger. They can mean the difference between mental health and drug diversion vs. stop and frisk. They can determine whether your local schools teach science or not. They can determine if your schools are properly funded.

Please, please, vote on every ballot measure and every race. The internet exists and you can look candidates up in advance and see their positions and endorsements. It looks like in key Mid-Western stats, voter suppression gave us 45. If you vote in every election and every primary, you have a much better chance of finding out if you've been illegally disenfranchise ahead of the important mid-term next year, and thus will have time to fight to get your rights as citizens back.

We need to resist them in very way we can. Don't let them win because you don't show up.

* In other news, it's been chilly enough to wear my coat this week. My coat has buttons all over it's lapels, because I am a queer Goth from the '80's and we used to roll like that and I still do despite having given up high goth for more comfortable gothy clothes do to poverty and illness. In the last place I went, there was this bright eyed, I'm guessing Freshman or Sophomore from the university, delightful customer service person of African descent who was an utter delight. She looked at me, looked at my paper work, did a double take and clocked me again, and then the sweet young woman apologized profusely for the gendered honorific an asked for my pronouns. Usually, people who are not social acquaintances or health care providers take their best guess or work around pronouns and honorifics. My Policy is to let them as it is an exhausting conversation to have multiple times a day. This leads occasionally to situations where people with dueling genderings are eyeing each other and me for some sort of sign, which I take as proof of a successful bowl down the middle of the lane. I generally only intervene when some parent is harshly correcting a child as to my gender, at which point I side with the child, as they are usually guessing closer anyway, being more keen observers of subtle detail in these matters. Anyway, I provided her with "ze, zhir, zim" and assured her that no offense at all was taken and it was kind of her to take such care. She said, "It is important for me to practice getting this right." People like to shit on Millennials, but I loved my kids when I was teaching and feel a lot happier with my fate being in millennial hands than those of Boomers. This woman was significantly younger than the last batch I taught, but it is good to see that the principals continue on in the tail end Millennials.

* Thank you, Something Positive. It was creepy and distressing when Criminal Minds used a twisted version of my ex's murder because it was a sensation at the time, an I have often wondered about how the families of the dead feel about things like AHS using them for plot. http://www.somethingpositive.net/sp10112017.shtml

So I'm gonna talk about some books I'm reading. I finally got around to reading the downloaded sample I had of Clean Sweep by Ilona Andrews. I can't remember if somebody had recommended it or if I saw a post about it somewhere. I enjoyed it a lot and the second book was better and the third book was even better. OMG Helen and the platter of bacon... They were a lot of fun. Not super heavy reading, but I liked it a lot.
https://www.amazon.com/Clean-Sweep-Ilona-Andrews-ebook/dp/B01KZM2J9M

Seriously, I recommend.

So then I finished the three, and was right back to my perpetual problem of "I've finished what I was reading, now what?" Something new? Reread? Well, this author has other books - so I checked out the first of what seems to be her primary series, Magic Bites. (And when I say "she", yes I know it's actually a husband-wife team, but that pronoun goes with that name, so there.)

https://www.amazon.com/Magic-Bites-Kate-Daniels-Book-ebook/dp/B000SEH16E/

I'm a little bit less sure about that book. It does come across as earlier in her writing career. And it didn't make me laugh. But it did start to grow on me. I do feel that it is a heckuva parallel to the Toby Daye books. Loner woman in a world dealing with both magic and tech, working odd jobs for the mercs despite having been raised to work with noble types that she ran away from because she has authority issues. There are some mysteries about her bloodline. Smart alecky and prone to getting hurt a lot. Interacts with the attractive but scary head of the local shapeshifters - yeah, I'm pretty sure Curran is the Tybalt of this series. And Derek is a Quentin/Raj analogue. And I'm watching her start to pull a group of proteges and allies around her, while still insisting she's totally a loner type.

So far, I'm still going "well, maybe I like this series", but I have gone ahead and bought the second book and am well into it. I suspect this is going to be the type of thing where somewhere along the way I go from "well, maybe" to having read a dozen of them and various of the side stories and then I'm signing up to preorder the next one.

* "Putin rival ties Kushner meeting to Kremlin bankers:" https://www.nbcnews.com/politics/white-house/putin-rival-ties-kushner-meeting-kremlin-bankers-n811631

* So not only did 45 call up the family of one of the special forces men who died in Niger to be deliberately callous to the grieving widow and her family, he then called her, another family member, and her congress women liars when they exposed his cruelty, presumably as part of his vendetta against gold star families he has been openly pursuing since he started to run for present. It also turns out 45 decided to prank the grieving father of a dead soldier last August by calling him up and promising him money, then not sending it, presumably also to show how much he hates gold star families. When called on it in the press the white house claimed it was all a lie as they were totally sending the check later that night. Mmmhmmm. What kind of monster would do these cruel things on purpose to grieving families of people who literally died in service of their country?

* Look, despite being a reasonably up on things person, I totally missed us invading Niger. When did we invade? Why? Shouldn't the Congress Critters have some sort of debate and vote before we go around invading places? Why is trump scared to read what seems a pretty standard statement, is he covering something up, by cruelty and taunting towards gold star star families who just lost people they love to distract us from his refusal to talk about Niger? I have questions and I feel like our government owes us some basic fucking answers here. "White House staff drafted Niger sympathy statement for Trump that was never released:" http://www.politico.com/story/2017/10/18/trump-niger-condolence-statement-243917

* "Trump denies telling widow of fallen soldier, 'He knew what he signed up for':" http://abcnews.go.com/Politics/trump-denies-telling-widow-fallen-soldier-knew-signed/story?id=50549664

* I doubt it will make any difference as Republicans voted for him on purpose knowing he held nothing but hatred and contempt for War Veterans and Gold Star families. Why would the lasted examples make any damned difference to people who think pissing on grieving families of our War Dead is hilarious. Again, if they didn't broadly approve, why did they vote for him? Because I’d have cut off a finger before voting for anyone in either party who behaved as he did during the election. "Fallout From Trump's Insult To Green Beret Widow, Use Of Kelly Deemed Political Dynamite:" https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2017/10/18/1708040/-Fallout-From-Trump-s-Insult-To-Green-Beret-Widow-Use-Of-Kelly-Deemed-Political-Dynamite

* I feel like there is a pattern here. 45 is deliberately cruel to Gold Star Families mourning recent loss and publicly slanders them. He is at the same time attacking NFL players kneeling in remembrance of murdered innocents during the anthem in the same way Special Forces kneel to honor their dead during the anthem, on the ground that it is somehow unpatriotic. Mike Pence has protested the right of Athletes to mourn at great taxpayers expense as part of 45's broad effort to use the weight of the executive branch to violate athlete's first amendment right to publicly mourn.

Last night while complicating this fundamental outrage, I found myself thinking of Antigone, persecuted by Creon for the crime of mourning her dead brothers and for trying to bury them according to custom, of her bravery in standing in opposition to something so cruel and impious as outlawing mourning. I was thinking of Haemon, Creon's son, who joins her in her protest and their willingness to die for what is right. I was thinking of Jean Anouilh's version which he wrote in 1942 in response to a lone act of resistance and produced in early 1944 still under the NAZI occupation as an antifascist message. The line I draw between the one thing and the other is a clear one, especially as 45 insists that NAZIs and KKK who injured so many and killed one in Charlottesville are "good people" while any resisting tyranny, racism, fascism, and genocide are unpatriotic.

* Yesterday was my birthday. There was this whole drama about the cake, which I had been wanting for three years, but my phone inexplicably didn't ring and the bakers decided that the basic black and white checkerboard done exactly the way you normally make it in that bakery only with the white icing purple and the outline of a skull piped onto the glaze meant I wanted the white cake pink which the don't do...? Anyway, they did not have my second choice cake in either it being the wrong day for it, so we ended up with a perfectly nice Victoria Lace, though it was chocolate instead of vanilla as promised. WTF, bakery. It was also pissing down rain and due to a series of unfortunate events we ended up driving all over it. Luckily the partially flooded bit towards the end did not get the brakes, and the good Disabled spot in front of my building had not filled up while I was out. We were all soaked through by this point.

We had the best flavour of take and bake pizza though, and fizzy cider for a toast, and cider to mull to warm up with and all was well. It was a fine party despite the shaky start.

Loot count so far:
Black Sails!
A cute skeleton hand ornament for the Gothmas tree,
Two Candy corn themed mice for Tavy's busy box.
Half a tank of gas.

Tavy is well pleased, as he found the mice in his busy box after left and has been have the best time with them. He also let one of the guests see him and made blinky eyes at him, though he was a hard no on more personal interaction.

We know that whenever 45 accuses someone of something, it means he did it. He also said today that he totally did this stuff and it will be "going out tonight."

(I have over the years had friends in all four branches plus the coast guard. I had a lover who was army who died. Most of these friends are dead or drifted now, but I have some left. My Uncle who just died was in the military helping people just returned from Vietnam. My grandfather was WWII naval intelligence. I had relatives in all our country’s wars from Vietnam back to the revolution. I mention this as my politics may lead to some assumptions about my background).

* I got a really fascinating Rasmussen poll tonight. They asked the usual demographic stuff and the obligatory right direction/wrong direction/economic/how is the President doing stuff, that some poll asks at lest every quarter, but this one included workplace sexual harassment, Bowe Bergdahl, and a number of other things.

I was going to be super short sleeped anyway today, but the insomnia sto;le about half. I still managed to drag myself out on time, just, with the help of extra anti-nausea meds. The line to the fast route was unexpectedly long, so I took the back roads and lucked out with traffic and lights. There was parking there, the pharmacy, the library, and the grocery, so that was all a relief. Alas, I turned left out of habit instead of right after forage, which was less efficient for gas and everyone was driving both impatiently and as if they forgot how. I was very nearly sideswiped twice by people suddenly trying to change lanes into the place my car happened to be. That sort of thing. I'd ascertained in advance that the apricot straws ere still o, so I had to get about a quarter of the bang for half my apricot straw money. Let us hope rationing carries me until the supply chain hold up ends. I am exhausted and achey and as i wrote this I hadn't eaten or put the groceries away. I want to go to bed, but no hope of that. Sigh. It is looking like I am having guests for my party Wednesday. Cleaning is snail's paced, but I've sorted most of the living room at least.

- I, Mudd. I don't know how I'm supposed to feel about McCoy saying those shitty things to Spock in the opener. Is it meant to be funny? I ask because it seems cruel for no reason. So creepy sexist conman, Harry Mudd, send androids to steal the ship and kidnap command crew. I know this is technological and not Godlike aliens, but it feels rather samey as the episode right after catspaw. Seriously the sexism hurts my teeth and is really hard to sit through even though it's from the villain. I get that it's meant to be funny at the expense of Mudd, but it's all just horrifying. And of course Uhura is tempted by the "eternal youth, eternal beauty." The sexist stereotypes aren't limited to the Andriods. At least she rejects it ultimately. And of course their leader is male. Sigh. Can these androids consent given they have to obey Mudd? I'm guessing yes as they eventually give the humans a big no, but Chekhov didn't know that. I am so grateful for Spock's deadpan here. I am amused by Kirk's first attempt being to logic fry them as that always worked before, but them being too smart for it. Alas, more extreme nonsense works. :( It's not that I want the robots to win, but they always solve computer problems with some variation of this. It WAS excellent nonsense at least instead of the usual perfunctory Kirk nonsense.

* So when I was training to be a teacher, they told us never, ever take a student anywhere in your personal car, no matter what the emergency. If you are alone in a room with a student, leave the door open if there are no hallway windows to let random passersby peer in. (With some students with severe disabilities needing to be taken to the bathroom this isn't always possible, but more than one life skills department I know of used to do pottying in pairs or groups whenever they could. In our profession, even the appearance that something is slightly off is enough to ruin a career so the sensible thing is to make sure there is never any occasion that is even slightly ambiguous regardless of the gender or age of the student. It was geometrically more important for male teachers especially in elementary, given the assumptions people tend to make, but we were all trained that way regardless of our genders and the ages we were teaching. Transparency was safer for them and safer for us. There is reason this is standard in my state. We could still have private conversation about things they might not want generally known like bullying, eating disorders, cheating, drugs, etc. but any one wandering past could see us having a conversation. The newest schools have hallway windows, which I adore as you can watch your kids when they are spread out for projects and admins can check to see if everything is okay without coming in and disrupting things. It seems to me that this would be a much better practice in a variety of industries. Particularly Hollywood. Just saying.

* I actually got good sleep today, which I needed, especially as today I went to try to sort out the TV. I got ten dollars out on the way, as the bank still had tellers and I really needed gas. I arrived at the library as they were setting up, first in line. Alas, this did not sav me as people who they didn't finish last time go first. I alternated reading and doing my best charming strangers routine. He worked on my bit in the gaps while he waited for things to set on a mixer he was fixing. It was the same model my Mother had when I was a child. I learned to bake with it. The mixer was healed, and I was glad to see it still in service and still loved by the nice lady who had it, the span of my lifetime away from it's manufacture. My guy did all he could, but the tV specialist had a TV they didn't finish last time, so he didn't have much time left to work on it. Between them, it's a whole list of things we know for sure aren't the problem. I'm to bring it back in November.

There was an indigenous mother and a delightful, clearly mechanical genius child who came. I think the boy was in Second grade, but I could be wrong by a year either way. She was doing a lot of enrichment with him and generally reminded me of my mother in her parenting style. The little dude was going to be doing a special program soon where they got to fix electronics and was really exited to be at the library on fixing stuff night. He got to see what was inside all the things and they let him use the volt meter and everyone wa willing to explain stuff. I showed him my sound circuit board and my visual circuit board and explained the bits he'd missed, and then he went over to look at the larger, more expensive version, which was also open to be fixed so he could compare the innards. So well behaved and just so excited to learn stuff. The future.

Anyway, this ate my whole evening and it was long past dark and chilly enough I wished I brought my coat. I got gas at the cheap place which I very much need to last the month as I shouldn't be spending anything at all on non-bill medical things. (I've saved enough EBT for my apricot straws and something for my Birthday). The trip there takes me past my house along this long road, past a small organic farm and a bunch of houses with lots of vegetation. My end of town has lots of small green spaces, drainage ditches with trees and lush vegetation, streams, and the University campus up the hill. There is a sort of gradual blend into the big parks and the real wilderness of the Mountains beyond. Thus, we have urban deer. I saw the doe up ahead in more than enough time, the road being straight, the speed being relatively low, and her having nearly made it across, I slowed and she stepped delicately up onto the sidewalk and stood staring as I passed.

Of course the parking was gone. I was cold and tired and thirsty and hadn't eaten or lunged. Pills needed sorting. I'd eaten all the ripe tomatoes. Tavy was beside himself, having missed me and also clearly having been bored which made all the necessary things that much more exiting. Poor wee beastie. The annual packet from management has come. I read it and mailed out my stuff. I really should get it together to go to this years meeting, but I haven't managed it even once yet. Sigh.

I am also strongly suspecting they are queer baiting us with Troy and nick. I don't like either of them and I have no prurient interest in this ship, but that doesn't make it okay giving the shitty quality of Queer Representation in this franchise (both shows) and the shortage of bisexual male characters in general. Don't toy with me unless you plan to deliver. It's the 21st fucking Century, teasing isn't enough. Do or don't do.

I miss Black Sails so much!

* The Book of the Unnamed Midwife was brilliant! It was a really compelling story, and it was really good to see a post-apocolyptic setting where all the queer folk didn't mysteriously die so quick they were never mentioned. We get a bisexual protagonist, plenty of queer folk here and there, multiple poly relationships, and a strong feminist structural design. I do need to warn people that there is rape and a little pedophilia off screen, though not described in a prurient way, and it is made very clear that rapists are terrible people and decent people fight them.

* Doctor Who Rewatch (3rd Doctor): The Spearhead from Space episodes speak well of the NHS, I think. They found an unconscious, possibly indigent man in the woods and look at the quality of care they attempt to give him. no way would he be treated as well over here to our National shame. I had... not realize just how much of third Doctor we get to see in his second episode. Was that his body or did they use a body double for the shower scene, I wonder? I kind of love that it takes no modifications at all to make the ordinary process of industrial doll making look appropriately creepy.

* Look, I know nothing about the Inhumans except for the new show. I was DC growing up. I literally didn't know Inhumans was a thing until they started promos. I am not trolling here, and I'd love for someone familiar to the franchise to explain if the fleeing Royals are meant to be the good guys. The show is framing things as if we are meant to the heroes, but they are tyrant who have enslaved a large portion of the population in the mines. Their justification for this horrific (in)human rights abuse is that they have limited resources on the moon and therefore they can't afford not enslaving people, which is clearly a lie, as enslaved people on the moon are still taking up resources like food, water, and oxygen. It's a transparant attempt to justify the unjustifiable. If they were really resource poor and wanting to avoid contact between people with powers and Earth humans without, wouldn't it make sense to set up a colony on earth? I've seen abandoned towns for sale now and then here in the US. Private Islands are still a thing, and there are also options like a flottilla in international waters. The Amazon jungle still exists and they have stealth technology sufficient to make a secret domed settlement. They could use this as a way to culturally acclimate before gradually making themselves known if they want to do that later. So why don't they do that instead of slavery? Slavery is never the fuck okay and this is clearly a choice on the part of the royal family as part of a eugenicist genocide. Fuck that! Seriously.

I'm not saying what's his face the usurper is the good guy either what with the murder, attempted murder, etc.. It's just that so far, the only decent people we've seen are the people of Hawaii (which I do approve of).

Is everyone except Native Hawaiians evil in the comics, or did the show runners do that without noticing that they are glorifying slavery?
