Why this piece is awesome: There's a lot of delicious colorful art by ghostparachutes to love, but I picked this one because I have found so little high-quality art of Lynz. There are two pictures in the post I linked, but I especially like the portrait of Lynz playing her bass--the red bandana and matching bloody knees (and hands!), the guitar, the hair, and the dark cloudy background.

MRI went fine

MRI went fine, they put me in feet-first so I didn't have to deal with possible claustrophobia. I'm seeing a gynecologist on Monday to discuss the results.

All they seemed to find was a 2.2 centimeter mass in my cervix, which sounds like the same one my doctor told me was there at the time of the surgery, so it seems unlikely to be the thing causing pain higher up and in the right side of my abdomen. I'm not crazy, I am feeling pain (usually slight but sometimes varying to sharp and twice to holy-crap-should-I-be-going-to-the-emergency-room levels) and it is something I should get checked out. It is. It is.

More 'Miss Fisher' Coming in 2018, As Movie Trilogy Gears Up For Filming

Here's to hoping that this is for real! Also that Dot and Mac are in it! Miss Fisher isn't the same without Dot and Mac (or Bert and Cec and Mr. Butler and Jane, but Dot and Mac are my favorites).

Why this piece is awesome: It's a cute shippy comic with pining! Specifically I love how expressive vampire!Gerard's face is, plus his tiny vampire fangs. I also like how no one's arms bend correctly, but their wavy appendages just add to the energy of the piece.

My phone is dead.

Not merely dead, where it won't wake up, or the screen is smashed, or the battery is gone. No, my phone is dead, so thoroughly fried that even God is backing away, hands held up, saying, "Dude, no one's that omnipotent."

As near as the dude at the repair store can figure, my charger died spectacular sometime Sunday night, and fried every electrical component in my phone along with it. Given that I just checked that charger and it was a LOT of years old, I find this explanation highly plausible. Folks, check your chargers. Trade them for new ones.

My photos were on the sd card, which survived, and they were the only irreplaceable things (three+ years of photos of animals I've taken care of the at the shelter, utterly irreplaceable). But I did not have my movie database or my CD database backed up (because I'm stupid), so I have three-some years of acquisitions to rebuild, unless Google was backing them up for me, which I doubt. But the new phone is on the way (Moto G4 Plus from B&H, unlocked, GSM/CDMA, 64gb of onboard memory, 1.4Ghz octocore processor.... it's a nice phone, and only out at the edge of my budget, and yes, I am very grateful I'm in a position where I can replace my phone, thank god/dess), so I suppose I'll exhaust that last hope soon.

(Also changing providers; Virgin Mobile is making it quite clear that they no longer give a crap about Android users; combined with their nasty habit of making you start a new plan with a new phone and not refunding any of the old plan, the time is ripe for a change. MetroPCS seems to win most of the review polls, and it means I can use a GSM phone, and there's a store literally around the corner from my condo, so...)

I would have gotten my phone diagnosed this morning, but there was a dead body on the tracks at Fullerton (a hub for all three northside El lines) and the entire north side ground to a halt for about three hours. I had left early to go to the phone repair place, and was lucky enough to get a seat on the 151 bus; it is literally the slowest bus you can take to the Loop, but it got me there. There were people walking to the Loop because the buses were too full or running too far behind and Uber, of course, switched to surge rates. I briefly berated myself for not trying to switch to one of the expresses, but by the time I realized how bad it was, all of the expresses would have been full, so...

A happy belated birthday to Ben Bass, whose birthday was yesterday, 14 August.  He has played in many TV shows, both as recurring characters and as a guest, as well as a few TV movies.  Most recently he played Sam Swarek in Rookie Blue.  In Forever Knight, he played Javier Vachon.

So if I have an MRI scheduled for 8 AM tomorrow, I should be able to make it to my workout two hours later (about 5 minutes away), right? An MRI is neither so lengthy nor so debilitating that it will take a lot out of me, right?

Just checking so that I can make sure I don't show up to work out and fall over or something.

Why this piece is awesome: This is a brilliant mash-up, perfect for the character. Instead of the mask, the Winter Soldier is muzzled like Max in Fury Road, and he has Furiosa's prosthetic in place of his high tech arm. He's got this feral look, nicely emphasized by the smear of black grease framing his eye and that snarl. He looks like he's been through hell, and he's just gonna keep on going. Great piece.

Like [personal profile] celli, who will be very understanding when she gets into work this morning and sees that saying "ground beef" and "spaghetti" in combination to me has prompted a 400+ word essay touching on the basics of on my personal theory of what goes into a good red sauce (the various types of meats or lack thereof), how and why why I learned to cook the way I do based on my mother and maternal grandmother's food and personal histories and theories of economizing, food history back into the Roman Empire, and food science. Which I don't go into depth on, because it's early and also it's work email, but still.

Also she has prompted my meal planning for a bastardized primavera sauce for later this week, which is an entirely different type of pasta sauce. Though it does have mushrooms in it, and parmesan, which will contribute nicely to the umami. (I really can't stop myself.)

(Also it might be time to try another run at that delicious fresh fava bean and parmesan salad, even though fresh fava beans are a gigantic pain to peel. But it was SO GOOD. I just need to remember to get a loaf of good sourdough or French bread to toast first to soak up the sauce.)

Also she will forgive me for not ending a nested parenthetical properly.

Though she will laugh at me. Probably a lot. (I will deserve it.)

But the nice thing about pasta sauce is that I can cook it gluten-free and she can still come over and eat it ANY TIME. We can have a GF pot and a gluten pot of pasta. Which she knows. This is the joy of pasta. The pots wash and the gluten comes off. It's not like flour, which gets in the nooks and crannies of the KitchenAid and stays EVERYWHERE.

Though I do have a nifty recipe for GF peanut butter cookies from Smitten Kitchen if we ever want to get together and bake something. I could use a hand mixer or a wooden spoon instead of the KitchenAid. Also you do the GF stuff first, before you get the flour in the air, so that you don't cross-contaminate.
