My reaction to literally every trailer I've seen is, "Why is Medusa wearing an ugly purple dress and a bad Party City wig?"

But every adaptation ever ignores the fact that Mary and James had some legitimate older siblings, at least one of whom was also named James, because those people are mostly superfluous. But that means that I don't have to explain why Male Mary is not named "James", just like Male Elizabeth is not named "Henry" because he has an older brother who got that dubious honor.

I'm not sure how to write Male Liz yet, but he's coming up v.v soon You have to strike this odd balance between someone who is ruthless and kind of awful but also a vulnerable woobie who you want to succeed.

1. Dad had spine surgery on Monday. He's got rods from L4 to S1 now. He's doing well.

2. Sunday I indulged the stereotype and polished silver. Did mom's everyday teaspoons and the serving pieces out the china cabinet. Might do the place settings this afternoon.

3. Considering doing another round of PT. Not sure if I can be sent for the all of me. If I had to choose something it'd be my shoulders and wrists.

I just discovered...

Sword and Sorceress anthologies are still being published.

Now I must resist the desire to submit to the next one.

Ugh. Migraine related desperation led me to take a pain pill that I know I react badly to. Now I have the minor urge to scratch off all my skin. The insides of my eyelids itch. Haven't broken out into hives so far, but that's a possibility. Took benadryl with it, but so far it hasn't helped (or maybe it has and that's why no hives).

Good side the migraine has died down enough I'll probably sleep tonight.

Why bodies, seriously.

1. Mom has photos for sale in a local shop. The shop owner made requests for particular kinds of images. There was interest expressed in carrying other things we may do with the pictures like make note cards or necklaces or magnets.

2. I just placed an order for 2 dolls I've been wanting for a while. It's a larger size than I currently have. I feel confident that this won't be a problem since there are currently 4 dolls in SD size I want and Twigling makes 3 of them. (Well, 2 dolls and a head.) I'm getting an Elbe and a Gamine both in vivid skin. Between them I'll have a B bust, C bust, short hip, long hip, short legs, long legs, relaxed hands, and original hands. if anyone is curious but not already into BJD.

3. I gave notice at my job on Wednesday. My last day is July 28th. I cited health as my reason for leaving. I debated trying to work something out with accommodations, but frankly there isn't enough room behind the new registers to put a stool to sit on.

Anime Strike makes me think the answer is no.

I mean, I guess I shouldn't be shocked after Zon devoured Twitch, but...somehow, I am.

1. Tomorrow I go and give notice at my job. I don't have a new one. I just physically can no longer do the current one. Or won't after the 28th when kids camp is over and I'm back on register for 4-5 hours at a time.

2. I would love to know what I've done to my left shoulder. Right shoulder being angry and everything around the shoulder blade clenched up is terrible and annoying but I'm used to it. This knot on the edge of the left shoulder blade that shoots pain everywhere periodically is not okay. This migraine isn't helping.

3. Our A/C froze over last night. It still hasn't unfrozen all the way. Sleeping tonight is going to be interesting. We've turned the blower back on and it's cooler because the air is moving over the ice. I've been hanging out in my desk chair with an icepack (mostly on the shoulder situation). Fingers crossed the stupid thing will defrost tomorrow.

3a. I'd go over to mom's tomorrow, but they won't have power all day because several utility poles in the neighborhood need to be replaced.

3b. I'm whining but it hasn't gotten out of the 80s all day with the various fans going. Three cheers for mid-century architecture and my grandfather's thing for courtyards.

On the one hand, I really like this font. ( affiliate link)

On the other hand, I'm 99% sure I've seen it and its ilk on bad-boy romance covers, ie it is not genre suitable except for the porn I am trying to wean myself off of. (And oh, god, I purchased my first ghostwritten gangbang short, which I have no guarantee of making my money back on, but it was that or despair of ever releasing on that pen name again. Wish me luck.)

And on the mutant third hand, even if it's not really genre-suitable for what I write, that is a very good price on a very nice commercial-licensed font if I ever decided to whore myself out making covers for other people.

(Also, I really need to be writing and not browsing font and stock photo sites, but apparently my brain has fixated on "how do I market" and is stressing over that to the detriment of actual words.)

Dear body,
If you could stop with the mystery hurting I'd appreciate it. Also? I'd like to have a leg to stand on so if you could pick one leg to have all the joints go out on instead of this 2/3 of one leg 2/3 of the other it'd be nice.
No love,

This message has been brought to you by the mystery pain in my left shoulder. Which is probably caused by my subluxing said shoulder in my sleep two nights back and getting something pinched up. But it's really a "who knows" kind of situation.

The Dog went missing on the morning of July 5, sometime between when [personal profile] darthneko went to work and when I got up to check on him about two hours later. No slipped collar, no broken leash, just...gone. I went out looking for him and found a few people who'd seen him, but I lost the trail down the Scary Gravel Road just before the part that's too steep for the car to safely travel, and figured - since he's an older dog - that he's probably followed the path of least resistance down into the ravine along the side of the road.

[personal profile] darthneko made lost dog flyers and shoved them in mailboxes in the area on her way home. I filed a lost dog report and joined a facebook group for lost and found WV pets.

It rained the first two days he was missing, so we at least knew he had water.

This morning, one of our down the road neighbors - who had seen the flyer, but couldn't find it to call us, but knew where Benny lived because she and her husband have seen him sleeping in our yard - knocked on our door to tell us she'd found him. Or rather, he'd found them: she came out and he was chilling under the shade of their propped-up canoe. I was just getting in the shower, so [personal profile] darthneko drove down the hill and retrieved one elderly dog, only slightly worse for wear, who clearly has no idea he was lost and is not at all traumatized (but is clearly glad to have his bed back, as he's slept on it all afternoon rather than dragging it around the livingroom as is his wont). I, on the other hand, am still traumatized, and he has lost all of his "outside unsupervised" privileges.

All of them.
