I had a highly distracting morning and some friends made sure I wasn't stuck in my head all afternoon. I've also been doing that "1 like = 1 thing I love" meme, which is very positive. :) Except like 37 people have liked it. AHHH. I should have listed my entire family individually or something!

Going home in a few minutes and I have one call planned and a couple more I can make if I need to. I'm also going to try and write my indulgence fic for Yuletide and watch my Coursera class videos so I can continue to get these assignments done - NaNo is coming, I need these out of the way.

Note to self: a) don't spend too much time on Twitter except in your mentions, you don't have the emotional strength for the world on fire right now. b) don't call your dad, he means well but has no idea how to help. c) NO RACHEL. sorry, boo.

Why this piece is awesome: LeATHERMOUTH, aside from being one of the gazillion bands Frank is involved in, is somewhat notorious for having a casual yet v. dark aesthetic. I mean, the promo photos are something else.

Zaki-mizer certainly tips a hat to Frank's look (white t-shirt and pants) while also managing to capture the vibrancy and aggression that makes up a LM experience. Although we don't see Frank's face, it's easy to figure out that he's giving it his all, even to the point of be covered with neon pink blood. It might look like a simple piece, but, the longer you study it, the more it seems to come to live.

Last spring there were plans to run a gen fanworks exchange through [livejournal.com profile] collarcorner, which I then flaked out on running, but it has found renewed life with the lovely [personal profile] sapphire2309 and [livejournal.com profile] nywcgirl as the mods. There is a poll over on LJ if you're interested, to determine dates and fanwork types. It'll be run through the LJ comm, but people without LJ accounts can still participate anonymously if you like, with a mod posting your assignment for you.

[community profile] fandomlovespuertorico benefit auctions end today at 6pm eastern time. If you want to bid on anything, last chance!

I think I had some other things to mention, but now I've forgotten them ...

Star Treks . . . including my tv history and Discovery

It's interesting hearing the expectations that my flist has of Star Treks, and where Discovery doesn't or does match up for them.

I was devoted to TOS during childhood -- had a mad crush on Spock in third grade, seriously. My secret is that I didn't own a TV during TNG's run, so I've seen bits of it in syndication, but my basic reaction is "Picard is best captain!" and not much more. I did see all of the movies, both casts, in the theater, because people wanted to and I was still a Trek fan in principle, at least. I started DS9 and really liked it, but then they moved it to Saturdays and I was single and dating and/or otherwise socializing enough of those nights that I lost track of an arc show. And in those days, I rarely remembered to set my VCR -- it took getting into internet fandom to motivate me. (Forever Knight, then X-Files briefly, then Buffy.) Missed Voyager almost entirely -- and wow, when I watch Kate Mulgrew in reruns occasionally it's amazing that she's the same person who plays Red on OITNB. (I know, that's called being a good actor.)

By the time Enterprise came along, M had moved in and therefore I was hanging out at home a lot more, plus we were better about recording things on VCR and then DVR. But Enterprise did not work for me; I guess it did not work for a lot of viewers as I don't remember it being around long and I think M even gave up after awhile.

So even though I think of myself as a lifelong Star Trek fan -- Spock crush in third grade after all! -- I'm really relatively Trek-ignorant, and coming to Discovery as the only Trek series I've followed in real time, other than s. 1 of DS9.

Plus, Michelle Yeoh, Sonequa Martin-Green, and Jason Isaacs are all performers I've really enjoyed in other things. And Wilson Cruz! And James Frain!

I was worried about Rainn Wilson, especially as M is doing a rewatch of the US The Office right now, and though I'm not watching along, I see the odd scene here and there. But he's definitely creating a character that looks like he could be fleshed out well. But wow . . . he was in love with Stella then. (*If* he really was.) The Stella-bot in Mudd's Women was one of the most misogynist stereotypes in . . . ever. though obviously mediated through Mudd's perspective; we never hear her own authentic voice. If I could stand the characters enough to fic them, I'd reconceive it so she was more like the Wife of Bath or something.

Does anybody else remember Janice Lester in TOS and the whole "women can't be captains" thing? I haven't seen that episode since the 70s, and I'm glad they've retconned the concept, but it definitely supports people's contentions that this is a third continuity, rather than the original one or Abrams's one.

I must have heard it when we were in Michael's yesterday, and it has been on a non-stop loop since then.

Nothing against the song, just... after 27 hours, IT GETS OLD.

Pre cleaning person cleaning

[personal profile] celli
I folded and spindled my budget to add a cleaning person for three hours once a month for various physical and mental reasons. Of course, there's some decluttering etc that needs to get done before she gets here in two hours:

* load dishwasher
* declutter kitchen counter
* toss nonfunctional cat feeder
* garbage/recycling off windowsill
* empty cat food cans in recycling

* declutter misc surfaces
* hang up hoodies
* get dressed


Optional:
* clothes on bed to be done while she's here
* wipe down sink (it's a little embarrassing)
* garbage & recycling out
* hit a nearby ATM for tip and laundry money

Totes doable, right?
