This also means I don't dare to go on twitter or facebook for their horrible spoileriness and only very carefully on lj. Once upon a Time especially is something I want to watch sans spoiler. However, there is always fanfic from closed canons, like this wonderful Londo (& G'Kar, Vir, Delenn, Timov) Babylon 5 story. Among many other things, it illustrates why I'm glad B5 didn't end with s4 plus Sleeping in Light, not despite but because Londo is my favourite character. Yes, Londo is in an apparantly good place at the end of s4. But it's one of denial. He hasn't confronted what he did yet, not really. This story bridges the time between Rising Star and The Very Long Night of Londo Mollari in s5, and builds up to the confrontation of his past and responsibility that starts there.

In this he mentions the 'startling' instances of gender imbalance and asks:
Why there is not more public debate on this?
Okay, maybe it is the particular corners of the Web that I frequent, but yr hedjog notes no lack of debate, comment and protest precisely on this issue. Which suggests to me that Mr N is not looking in the right places, no?
A writer or painter must be knocked back by shock or suffering that stuns his or her rational mind and allows access to inspiration, whether that bold idea comes from some deeply buried detail of psychology or some external daemon muse.
Also not persuaded that what he describes - wandering around sleepless because nowhere to sleep - approximates to most people's mundane experiences of actual insomnia, where all the conditions for slumber are there, but Morpheus has left the building without stating any time of, or indeed intention to, return.

Watching Netflix is in so many ways so much better than network TV. I can binge if I want to, catch up on shows I've missed, and see shows I never would get to see on TV. I'm a convert.

( Easter Wells 2014 )
In case I shan't be able to post properly again during the holidays: happy Easter to all who celebrate it!
The wedding is going to be held on my sister's back lawn, followed by a "semi-formal BBQ". Should be interesting.
I looked in my closet, and realized I do not own a single dress, or even a skirt. Never mind lawn friendly formal shoes.
I'm delighted to be going to the wedding and to seeing my family, but I now have to shop for an outfit, and for a wedding present.
Clothing stores will never make their fortune from me, I'm afraid. Still, it will be nice to have one thing I can wear to a fancy restaurant or such without feeling like the country cousin. I'm just not thrilled about shopping. It's hard to find something that is not old ladyish or too young for a woman of a certain age.
Maybe I should hire a personal shopper!
Books for men who do not read, we consider, should start off with something even simpler than Ernest H's stripped-down prose. Maybe Thomas the Tank Engine, coz of boyz luv traynz. Nursery slopes.
And we note the inclusion of Finnegan's Wake which is surely the primest of prime examples of A Book Not Read For Enjoyment But For Sense of Superiority And To Impress.
What with this at one end of the spectrum (srs manly bkz for manly menz so they don't look gurlie when reading) and Poems to Make Grown Men Cry*, is it, you know, just possibly rad and subversive to suggest that Men: Not A HiveMind?
*Most being poems that don't confine their tear-jerking qualities to a single gender, honestly.
