Yes, it is that time of year again! I haven't had a chance to play yet myself (life happens *sigh*) but I intend to go take a look tonight and Sunday.

Check out these awesome meta posts [personal profile] endeni made about Vala's character: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5. I've only read the first part so far, but this is really thoughtful meta with tons of citations from canon--a great resource on her character.

Thanksgiving week has been awesome. Mom and Dad are home safe. She didn't get sick while she was here at all, not even a weensy tummy rumble. Whooooo! And now I know exactly what to get her for Christmas (she's got to get rid of so many of her dishes, which frankly I think the tupperware that's older than me deserves a proper burial anyway). She just kept thanking me for being so attentive to detail and saying how comfortable she felt here and how grateful she was that I was willing to accommodate her new diet, and it all just broke my heart a little. I mean, what was I going to do? Poison my own mother? Sheesh.

Fi did so much playing outside yesterday that when Josh was doing her breathing treatment last night, she fell asleep. And then we couldn't wake her up to give her a bath or brush her teeth or give her any of her other medicine. LOL She slept through us putting on her pajamas and then slept for 13 hours straight. The very first thing she said to me this morning when I opened her door was, "Now I can run again!"

How has everyone else's week been?

My mother is of the opinion that I ought not to fix my malfunctioning range, that any money going into it is money being thrown away because it is SO ancient. She thinks I am better off buying a new electric range, which would be a lot of money, but at the same time, the appliance repair people are going to charge me $115 just for the call-out fee, and that's before the parts, which may be very hard to get as the range is so damn old it doesn't even have an appliance tag anymore. I moved in back in 2002, and it wasn't a new range then.

inconveniently, the appliance repair place I called does not also sell new appliances. Does anybody know of a good appliance store in Vancouver or Burnaby? Alternately, does anybody anywhere have any recommendations for companies which MAKE ranges? Because even if I go to a good store, there will still be a bewildering number of brands to choose from. Whirlpool, Jenn-Air, Blomberg, Samsung, etc, etc, etc. I will refrain from making any corny "Help me, Obi-Wan-Ke-Friends-List, you're my only hope," jokes. No, wait, I just made that joke. Too late.

Considering the society Ayla grew up in, and the values she learned, why doesn't she think Jondalar is basically hideous when she meets him? Like, her own self-esteem is such that she thinks she's ugly, so why doesn't she see Jondalar in the same light? She could love him, and find him very dear, but still perceive him as just a bit fug. You know? Not that someone with her looks deserves any better, of course! I think he'd be really insulted, but it would probably be good for him.

Alongside Everette, WA

Well, that lovely shore posting that was supposed to free up time for me to focus on completing my undergrad degree, spending more time with M and feeling somewhat like a human being has gone out of the window as of late. I have been attach posted to the good ship SASKATOON to assist her in accepting the new side-scan sonar payload for the RCN. I have always enjoyed doing side-scan sonar (how many people can say that they have seen the bottom of the ocean?), but this posting could not have come at a worse time. It has thrown a serious wrench into my school (good bye 4.0 average) and it is making commitments that I made while I was ashore much more difficult (and I hate not meeting my own commitments).

In what should be a plus side, the ship is alongside Everette, Washington right now to take advantage of Black Friday (weekend) sales. The crew has been having a tough go with early starts and late ends to the day, so the stop is nice. But I would rather be at home this weekend working on my course and spending time with M. And you know what you spend so much time stewing about something not being right that you miss a chance to maybe get work done…that is me always right now. I should probably fix that.

At any rate, you got a post of this. How is your American Thanksgiving weekend going?

The Kickstarter for Star Trek: Renegades episodes 2 & 3 is in its final days and still needs about $46,000 to meet its goal.

The first episode is available to watch in its entirety for free on YouTube. The series, which is independent and fan-funded, takes place in the original universe approximately ten years after the events of Nemesis.

You can back the Kickstarter at a variety of levels and help make the next phase of Star Trek happen!

I’m just going to post these tweets here as a reference point so we can pick this conversation up later after I get back from the Big Box.

Every once in a while, some disturbed person absorbs the language and logic of white evangelicalism’s Satanic baby-killer fantasies and, not realizing it’s all a disingenuous game, acts on it. “Pro-life” evangelicals are then forced to condemn that person’s actions in an awkward dance that forces them to admit, at least implicitly, that they do not take their own words and arguments seriously — and thus that no one else should take them seriously either.

I seem to have borked my gmail account, which at least settles the question of whether i was going to keep it or not.

HOWEVER, if you're used to finding me on gchat, you see the one serious problem, here. I can't reach any of you and it's awful.


If there is some other chat client you're on, or if you don't mind getting chatty texts from me, please leave your info here (all comments screened)

Stroking my beard is villainous and stroking my cats is villainous but stroking my beard with my cat isn't.
