Gave myself a phenomenal case of food poisoning yesterday - pro tip, if you cut into a new avocado and it looks like it has black oxidization already in it, DO NOT EAT IT. Not even the perfectly good looking green bits. It's a sign of internal rot in the avocado, and will give you food poisoning. =P So yeah, that was fun, and yesterday I managed two pieces of bread with a little bit of peanut butter, and a can of ginger ale, and that was it after violently throwing up everything from about noon the day before. >_< Mostly just passed out and slept a lot (like, I'd think "oh, I should get up and get something to drink", and I'd throw off the covers, and then fall asleep again before I could actually finish getting up).

In other random news, there is no better way to piss me off and make me not use your product than by trying to force that product on me. =___=

Case study - company #1 (fieldbook database), which advertised customization, failed to produce said customization, failed to provide any simple way of deleting an account with them, and has now gone 5+ days of very slow response emails with me wherein I asked politely to delete the account as I won't be using it, they (waited 2 days) asked why, I said because the site doesn't do what I want it to, they (waited another 2 days) and asked what I was looking for, and I have rather sharply told them it doesn't matter and delete the account please. It's been 3 days and I have no reply and no confirmation that the account has been deleted.

Company #2 (scruddle social dashboard) - advertised a lot more features than they actually deliver, has no easy account deactivation on their site, AND pushed my account into billable premium immediately, when I had specifically clicked on the free account button. Something which I would never have found out until they were asking me for payment info in a month if I hadn't gone looking all over the account tab in order to delete the damned account. And now I've had to write them a letter, and the letter is polite but damned right I mentioned that underhanded premium bullshit as part of why I won't be using them.

UGH. Stupid ass marketing monkeys. Look, let me try your shit out because nobody likes to buy before trying, see if it does what I want, and then DO NOT fucking make me complain my way up your chain of command in order to delete my account info from your fucking database when it turns out you don't do anything I want. I'd be a lot more likely to recommend places for what they DO instead of spreading their names far and wide as underhanded slimy dipshits if they'd just make setting up a trial account and then deleting it a painless person-interaction-free process.

Recently read:
  • Dzur by Steven Brust.

    I didn't love this; I'm not sure how much it's a weaker member of the series and how much it's me. It is book 10 in a set of 19, of which the last five are still to be written. I may have left it too long since I read the previous volumes, or maybe I just wasn't in the mood for it. I decided I couldn't be bothered following all the complex allusions to the meta-structure of the whole series, and as a single novel it's never more than just ok. I didn't find Vlad's voice or Loiosh's asides witty, and the pacing dragged, and I didn't care about the mystery. Because I hadn't been following the chronology properly, the twist at the end wasn't a delightful surprise, it just unsatisfyingly didn't make sense.

    When I was reading 50 books a year, I intended to read the whole series, because both the individual novels and the way they fit together into a complex whole appeal to me. Now that I read more like 15 or 20, I'm thinking I may drop this. Not sure; one weaker book doesn't mean the whole series isn't worth bothering with.

  • A taste of honey by Kai Ashante Wilson. This was a Hugo-nominated novella, which meant that several of my friends read it, and were enthusiastic about it. So I ended up reading the copy from my Hugo packet on the way back from Worldcon, which is not exactly in the spirit of things. And I regret not reading it in time to vote for it, not that it would have made much difference since McGuire's Every heart a doorway (which I wasn't keen on) won by miles.

    Anyway, this is a really amazing fantasy romance story. It's beautifully written, great characters, twisty, thought-provoking plot. The worldbuilding is really deep; looking it up it turns out this is a companion novella in the setting of a novel, which I'm now definitely going to seek out. I had dismissed Wilson's Sorcerer of the Wildeeps mainly because the name is so clunky; I assumed it was parodic or just really generic swords and sorcery.

    It's hard to describe exactly what's so great about AToH without spoilers, but it's a really moving romance, and has a lot to say about choices and sacrifices made for love. [personal profile] jack thought it maybe needed some content warnings; some of the content is about homophobia and abusive parenting. To me it didn't feel like misery porn, it felt as if it centred its variously Queer characters and described some of the bad things in their life as well as the good. But I can imagine some readers finding it hard going.

    Up next: The Fifth Season by NK Jemisin. I'd been meaning to read this, though I'm a little scared of what I've heard about it, and I've now bumped it up my list since the sequel won a second Hugo.

    1. Glad I went to bed early last night because I ended up having to go in to work before eight this morning to drive the forklift since someone called out sick and there was an early delivery before anyone else who could drive it was there.

    2. Not getting to bed as early tonight, but definitely earlier than I have been, so I'm still counting that as progress.

    3. Jasper is a cuddly baby but he is such a mommy's boy and pretty much only wants to cuddle with Carla. He used to cuddle with me when we first got him, but he formed a preference pretty early and while he allows me to hug him now, it doesn't usually last long. But tonight he came over to me and cuddled for quite a while! With his pur on at full volume and everything.

    I was busy petting him and did not get any pictures, but here is one of him tolerating a hug the other day.

    1. I made curry for dinner tonight and it was so delicious, plus now we have a ton of leftovers. It's so nice to have the weather cool enough that I actually don't mind cooking.

    2. I had a nice relaxing day off.

    3. I'm really tired, so I'm going to go to bed early tonight and hope that maybe helps get me back on a schedule where I'm going to bed between twelve and one and not like at three like I did yesterday.

    4. Lately Molly has rediscovered the back of the sofa.

    It is slowly sinking in that by this time next month I will be in a Real House, which is All Ours, and we can do ANYTHING we want with it.

    Like, I'll have my own office, which is not just somewhere to put all of my worldly belongings, but an entirely separate room that is an office, for working on things, and I can do anything I want to. I'm not restricted to sedate tiny nail holes and pushpins to hang posters. Anything at all, sky in the limit, and I'm encouraging my dragon to think of her office the same way. We can have customized to us spaces. There is no "this is sufficient, this is good enough to work on", there is our space, our house, and if we want to paint the interior Stormwind blue and gold, we can.

    I need to live there for awhile. I need to see how the light falls in my office, whether it's morning or evening, what it looks like. And then... I'm pondering bamboo wainscotting, a small corner computer desk, a larger table for doing art on, the papasan chair because it's mine, me and the cats are the only ones who use it, and it needs to go somewhere. bamboo stalk&leaf raised plaster above the actual bamboo slat wainscotting, painted in blues and greens along one accent wall, and moroccan patterns in purple and warm colors on the rest. hanging my moroccan tea light lanterns from the ceiling, along with custom dyed scarves. The papasan might eventually be replaced with a loom stand and my spinning wheel (it's the smallest of the bedrooms that I'm claiming for office space).

    Basically a bohemian adult pillow fort, with my computer and art supplies. And I can totally do it, and not even worry about whether it can be restored to the original "bland marketable white" look. *wiggles* Ok, all the adulting might totally be worth it.

    Birthday was steak for lunch, and icecream for dessert, and lots of playing on the computer. Also the hilarity of both me and my mom failing to do the math - our respective wives, who are more math inclined than we are, had to do the math for us and assure us that yes, I am one year away from being halfway through my forties. XD The math fail is genetic, obviously.

    The stupid scraped knee continues to heal and look gruesome while doing so - it's now healing faster than I'm actually generating new skin, which is making the scab peel back from the edges and yank hard on all that brand new skin, and it's generally ow and can stop leaking sticky clear crap any day now. The ankle that I DID NOT sprain, dammit, can also stop being just ever so slightly swollen (enough that it hits my shoes weird) and full of random twinges of ow. Stupid body.

    Cleared out the garage with the boss neighbor's help (and his truck) and took all of that over to the new place. More packing this week, but it sounds like his fuel injectors on his truck are going rapidly downhill and the agreed on idea of another load on wednesday might not happen if his truck won't start. =P oh well, it all needs packing anyways, whether we do it in a U-Haul truck or in his pickup.

    Mostly I'm pondering what I can wear for the rest of the week to work - I have a profusion of jeans, but I need, like, loose lightweight pants, or shorts, or even skirts, and I don't have many of those. I just can't even contemplate having denim rubbing on this knee right now. =P

    1. I made pancakes for breakfast this morning and they were soooo tasty. I don't really like American style pancakes that much, but I love the super fluffy Japanese ones. We were watching a video on youtube last night that made us both want pancakes and luckily there was a bag of Morinaga pancake mix in the cupboard. :D

    2. Today was waaaaaay less hectic than yesterday. One person did call in sick, but it wasn't a big deal.

    3. It's so chilly tonight I'm actually wearing a sweater here at my desk, which I haven't done in over a month. I just took a look at the forecast and they're saying nothing higher than mid-high seventies for the next ten days, which would be awesome if true. I do worry about another mercilessly hot autumn like we had two years ago (where it was blazing hot into November) but I'm hoping it stays mild.

    4. I looked up above my desk the other day and Jasper was at this perfect angle where all I could see was feet and tail. So cute!

    I met [personal profile] greenygal to see Rashomon today, which is one of Kuraoawa's more famous films and a seminal role for Toshiro Mifune. There's a documentary on Mifune on Tuesday night that I might go to.

    Walking back to my place, I was bothered by a man who complimented me on my hat and asked where I got it, but then asked if I wanted to make a friend. Given that this indicated he was either trying to pick me up or try to talk to me about Jesus, I told him I was full up on friends and walked away from him faster. Further home, another man tried to get my attention and when I ignored him, called me 'a fat bitch'. I turned around and called him out; his only come-back was 'fat bitch' again.

    I'm really tired of men, and it's almost always men, that think a woman being out in public is required to give them the attention they want. It was really annoying because I was obviously walking with someone, but I guess they think that because I was with another woman, that doesn't count.

    Anyway, we got both my Kallax units put together, with only a minor mishap. I'll get things moved around tomorrow and during the rest of the week. Hopefully having that much more shelf space will help with the de-cluttering!

    Tiropita, mini-spanakopita, seasonal olive oil lemon cake, bougatsa, pita. I'm meeting [personal profile] fabrisse at the Takoma market tomorrow, so I'll buy fruit then.

    I looked at the various wineries and breweries for gift ideas -- my parents' 75th birthdays are next month, and food or alcohol is generally a reliable gift. One of the the brewers pressed when I wouldn't try their samples and just wanted their suggestions based on what their popular items are and my parents tastes (Mom likes Negra Modelo and cafe con leche -- so coffee liqueor made with caramel syrup? maybe?) -- so he got the blunt explanation that all alcohol tastes like cat piss to me -- though next time, I might say 'tastes like soap'; it's similarly inaccurate, but viscerally repulsive to most people so might get my distaste across better. It did make me less inclined to buy his products, that's for sure.

    Huh... my sister's 50th birthday is also next month. Maybe I should get her a bottle or two of the fancy vinegar. They had Wild Rose, Wisteria, and Chamomile vinegars today, and while I didn't like the taste of the first, the other two were interesting. Maybe one sweet vinegar and one savory, like Ramp or Heirloom Pepper?

    darthneko: Transformers - Ratchet facepalming ([fandom] facepalm)
    [personal profile] darthneko
    The Good: Mom and her wife came and visited for two days. Got to see them and hang out for a bit, they got to see the new house, mom brought along some art for us to hang and the gorgeous double sided quilt she made for me. We went golfing (well, mom and her wife golfed, me and my dragon drove the little carts around, which would have been more fun if the local golf course wasn't entirely made up of ancient barely functional crap, including the little decrepit gas powered carts) and drove around to see sights and just generally hung out. Also got one load of boxes and bagged clothes moved over to the new place.

    The Bad: On the first day mom was here, right after we'd met, gone over to the new house, and had lunch, we were walking around downtown Charles Town poking around the antique shops. And downtown Charles Town tried to kill me. =P Paved over pothole - looked smooth, actually several inches lower than the rest of the street. Deceptive. I stepped into it right as I was coming off the curb, rolled my left ankle to the outside (ankle bone hit the pavement) and landed hard on my right knee. Thankfully I'm very flexy jointed and didn't hard sprain the ankle, though it puffed up a bit and I had to put ice on it for the rest of the day. The knee, on the other hand, looked fine at first, didn't even scuff my jeans... then I pulled up the pantleg because it hurt and oh, look, I scraped off a roughly 3"x4" area of now bloody raw flesh right on my kneecap. Pretty much the whole front of my kneecap.

    Mom and her wife are both retired nurses so they cleaned me off fairly well, and we called the first day a wash as I needed to be home with both legs up, ice on one ankle, and letting the scab set on the other knee. Second day I was hobbling but mostly okay, which is when we went golfing... and out of the four of us, I was the only one who came away burned flaming red across my left shoulder. So add on sunburn fever to the knee and ankle, and I said fuck it and called out sick for the next two days, which is why it's now Friday and the only day I've been at work this week. =P The sunburn is now simultaneously "don't touch!" and "aaaargh, itchy!", the ankle is only slightly tender, and the knee alternately burns or throbs and anything touching it - including very very light fabric - is enough to make me grit my teeth and swear. (Brushing it against anything solid is cause for loud vocal swearing.) On the plus side, the Wellness center at work provided antibiotic gel and a stick on gauze pad, so at least it's covered up and being kept moist for a bit because the way the skin dries out around it and makes the scab start cracking was driving me nuts.

    The Random: The more I play with anyone and everyone else's commercially offered database things, the more I realize I just need to buckle down, learn SQL, and build my own. Because all the commercial options SUCK.

    Also, I question whether my dragon's nephew is human or not - the guy is a fucking BEAST of a tank in WoW, and the fact that his newly leveled not fully geared yet panda alt tank was out DPSing my fully geared panda main DPS is just sad and either makes me look bad, or makes him look inhuman. I'm going with him being inhuman because all his characters are like that. =___= Like, seriously, what does he need us running him through mythic dungeons for? I'm pretty sure he solos that stuff in his sleep. (Not that I'm complaining, since we wouldn't be running mythics without him single handedly carrying our asses through them. =P)

    Additional edit: two hours later, the gauze bandage had to come off because now my knee is just BURNING pain, the scab has softened, and because it's softened is now leaking blood-tinged fluid out of it. Ow ow ow ow OW.

    liv: A woman with a long plait drinks a cup of tea (teapot)
    [personal profile] liv
    A song that has many meanings for you. I think this has to be Some kind of stranger by Sisters of Mercy. Partly because it's lyrically complex; I have never been sure if it's about a positive relationship or a breakup, a long-term connection or a casual affair, and it may well not be about romantic love at all.

    This is another song that [personal profile] doseybat introduced me to when we were teenagers. So it's tied up with discovering alternative music and the goth scene, and forming my own tastes in music as well as more broadly. A period of my life when I think I did the most growing up.

    In some ways it's a song about keeping faith in spite of everything that might push you towards despair. And that's why I keep coming back to it, whether it's faith in a person or just more broadly:
    And I know the world is cold
    But if we hold on tight to what we find
    We might not mind so much
    That even this must pass away

    Then it's the soundtrack of my PhD. The bit where my brother had a bad accident and I was in an emotional mess, but the science was still inspiring and still needed doing. The bit where it wasn't inspiring any more, it was a slog, and I had to keep going. One more step, one more flask of cells, one more measurement. The long repetitive bit at the end Come here I think you're beautiful over and over again, when I was sitting in the cell culture room with my headphones a portable tape player, and just keeping my cells alive and nourished before I could actually do any experiments took about three hours three times a week. You can't miss a sesssion or the cells die or mutate and you lose months of work. You have to concentrate enough not to get anything contaminated, but it's not exactly intellectually stimulating. In fact, a lot of the point of my PhD was providing justification for replacing me with a robot, but grad students are cheaper than robots, and I was just sitting there screening through hundreds of potential new drugs.

    It's also a song about making friends with [livejournal.com profile] rysmiel, towards the end of that PhD and the years just afterwards. [livejournal.com profile] rysmiel is also a Sisters fan and gave me a recording of one of their concerts, since it's nearly impossible to buy studio versions of most of their music since the 80s. The ambiguous words might be about a sudden, intense yet enduring friendship, maybe. Some kind of stranger / some kind of angel.

    And even though it's a pretty downbeat song, it's a very happy song for me now. It promised me that I could endure, and I have. My brother is fine now. I still love most of the people who sustained me in my late teens and early 20s. I've succeeded at some things that were hard and failed at others, but I have people who love me for myself, not my achievements. And nothing is permanent, but as long as I'm here and get to experience things and love people, I can cope with that.

    2. We went to Campos for dinner and got delicious carnitas burritos. Haven't been there in a while, I don't know why.

    3. Sometimes I get annoyed with all the emails I get from various ticket-sellers, but today I got an email informing me that tickets go on sale tomorrow for The Killers at the Staples Center in February! I knew they had a new album coming out, so I figured they probably would be touring again, but I don't really pay attention to these things, so I'm willing to put up with all the spam for artists I don't care about to get a reminder for stuff I do.

    4. I managed to catch Chloe in a really cutie pose.

    1. My favorite LPer is a big Nintendo fan but has never really played Metroid...until now! And now he's decided to play ALL the Metroid games, which I am really enjoying watching.

    2. Today was the grand opening of the new Whole Foods 365 down the street from us, so we walked over after I got home from work. It looks really nice and although it was crowded (grand opening, after all), it wasn't as busy as I worried it might be (probably since we were going at like 8pm rather than midday). We got some yummy treats and will definitely be going back again sometime when it's less busy.

    3. We left this box on the floor the other day even though it's really too small for the kitties, just because we were too lazy to take it out to the recycling...but it appears it's not too small for Molly!

    lea_hazel: Typewriter (Basic: Writing)
    [personal profile] lea_hazel
    The more I write (and I've been writing for more than fifteen years, half my life or longer), the harder it is to ignore the murkiness of the writing endeavor. I write original fiction and fanfiction, and I also write reviews. The things I look at when I write reviews are sometimes the same as what I examine when I'm writing, but just as often totally different. That can create an absurd type scenario where I criticize a series of books or games for repeating variations on a certain trope, but still be writing that trope into my own original fiction. Not even (necessarily) to subvert it, and on the whole as a media consumer I prefer aversions to self-conscious subversions.

    The most obvious case that comes to mind for me right now is a multi-chapter fanfic from years ago that I never finished. This included both a love triangle and an antagonistic, hate-to-love type romance, all wrapped up together. And this was at a time when I had an even stronger aversion to both than I do now. And these were the central threads of the plot, not some supporting B-plot. More recently -- I even wrote a DW post about it -- I was writing a nation of inhuman people as analogues of a real cultural group (my own, but still), which is a thing I've strenuously objected to in the past.

    And now there's my Yuri Jam game, if it gets off its feet. When I was coming up with the concept, I was mainly thinking about a cutesy idea of "mad scientists", a kind of character trope that has lost all credibility to the point where it's automatically camp and humorous, in a self-aware way. At least in theory. It's impossible, however, for me to ignore the underlying creepiness of the story, even if I'm trying to tell it from a point of view that places value judgments on the protagonist's choices, and even f the game is built in such a way that it locks the player out of making any truly outrageous character choices. I have to find a way to write around and through it, and address it head-on while still allowing the game to be a little funny.

    And I find myself wondering how it is that I keep finding so many corners to paint myself into.

    1. It was really nice to have that extra day off today! (I'll be confused all day tomorrow about what day it is, though.)

    2. I made spaghetti napolitan (a Japanese type of spaghetti made with ketchup instead of regular pasta sauce) tonight for dinner. First time I've ever made it at home, and it was so delicious I'm definitely going to do it again. (I've only really had it in spaghetti pan before.) It really is a little too muggy for cooking, but at least it made lots of leftovers.

    3. I didn't do much translating today, but I did almost finish up a chapter of Gunjo (should be able to send that off to the typesetter tomorrow, so maybe hopefully have it to post sometime within the next week or so).

    4. Jasper has just been so ridiculously cute today. This pic is from yesterday, I think, but today was more of the same, just sleeping all day on the shelf above my desk in various cute poses. XD

    [personal profile] liv
    I'm on a mission to redeem group work in education. I expect this to be controversial among many of my friends. So if I'm right and lots of you have terrible memories / experiences of being made to do bad group work, I invite you to comment here and tell me what was bad about it. Do you think it's just awful, or are there problems that might be fixed? I believe strongly that while it can be dire, it can also be great, or perhaps I might phrase it as, there are things that look like group work superficially but are actually great.

    Because I'm on a mission this may turn into a more formal research survey at some point, but in that case I'll pose the question in a formal context with ethics and everything. Right now I'm just trying to gather some opinions and not just rely on my own ideas. Plus I am eye-deep in paperwork and I could do with some distraction, so do rant away.
