I was watching the 1995 version of Jane Austen's Persuasion and looking at Mrs. Croft I suddenly thought that's Aunt Petunia! I looked it up and Fiona Shaw played both roles.

the most cringeworthy political slogan ever!

I really ... really need a laughing hysterically icon.

This is intense! Anti-racism experiment.

Whoo Hoo! I just finished year 2 of a-post-a-week at Taming the Muse! Considering my second longest run was 7 weeks, I'm pretty proud of 104 weeks!

Of no, it wasn't me falling, Leslie - roommie with the broken foot - fell. She had an appointment with her foot doctor at 10. I was out doing something with the car. She came down the stairs on her butt 'cause it's easier that way and as she was standing the rolling chair she uses to get around got pushed and the movement must have distracted her because down she went. She fell so hard she cut her finger. We tossed a couple of bandages on it and went to her appointment.

After, around 11:30, she called her regular doctor and made an appointment to be seen at 2:30. Since the three steps into the house - up from curb, up onto stoop, and up into house - terrify her (with reason. She's fallen twice coming up the curb.) we went to the library which has a ramp. She put some books on hold and I picked up a hold - Jemisin's The Fifth Season which is proving to be excellent. She wasn't hungry but I went and got some lunch. We made it to the doctor's appointment and I waited a good hour while she was in there. Apparently it didn't need stiches, just some sort of bringing skin together glue.

Of course after that we had to get her prescription. It wasn't ready but took only five minutes. Then she took me out to dinner at a local Chinese place. Back at home (about a quarter after 5!), we used a chair to get her up the steps. I'd put the chari at the top of a step, she'd sit on it, twist around, and get back onto her crutches. Much safer than hopping up.

Blah! I'm not the one on crutches and even I was exhasuted. Happily, for me, there was a new Seduction by Aviation chapter when I got home. Leslie's online working to make up for lost hours.

This reminds me how Dad is treated in my family, by his sisters, by my cousins, and by my sister. Possibly even by me in the past. Don't get me wrong; Dad can be really tough to get along with, but if you explain where's he's being unreasonable, he will take it in and change his behavior.
Also, I adore Amy's response to the sanctimonious bitch.

Oooh, look. Restfield made me a pretty! Thank you! It's perfect for my story.
Mmm, I really love the skin giving way to show the demonish face beneath. Perfect!
