Just recalling an interview with Roberta Bondar from last night. I fucking love Roberta Bondar. Maybe this belongs in the random facts thread.

Today I am so genuinely happy. As someone who has struggled with depression, anxiety, and PTSD I treasure these days and it blows my mind that I can be this happy.

I went to a drag and burlesque show with my fiancÚ and some of my coworkers last night, had a delicious brunch in perfect weatherboard morning and now I'm going to go look at a wedding venue.

Drinking Vodka Sodas and eating M&M's while chatting with friends on computer and in text. Life is pretty good at the moment.

A couple of hours work, no power. The branch was probably cut with a chainsaw... i pulled it out of cut brush/trees beside the canal.

What i brought home was ~6 feet long so theres a few spoons and maybe a pipe bowl or two in there too. I took an 8 inch length off with a handsaw and split it in two (i really need to change the set of the teeth so it will make a cleaner rip cut)

Most of the shaping was done with a pocket knife, i used a small carving gouge to shape the bowl, then sandpaper and a little mineral oil to finish.

I made a spreader with the other half of the stick.

Well let me preface before answering.

In writing here I've realized there is only so many ways the stories can go; almost all have to have a romantic or at least physical element. And so, I looked at the only genre that I feel is pigeonholed similarly - romance.

Kresley Cole's series, although perhaps not the most elegantly written, is earthy, their characters are relatable, and every book contributes to an overarching plot. Yes, it's vampires and demons, but each species has a kicker which adds to the plot.

I read another series recently by Christine Feehan and although better written, every character was basically identical. And no matter what the characters had faced, every single facet of their personality was stripped away by a plot ploy. Didn't matter if she was raped as a kid (it was so sanitized and vague it wasn't real), the minute a specific event occured everything about her 'healed' and she had no issues. It was so formulaic that reading 8 books back to back made it incredibly obvious the plot was pre-formulated. They would meet their partner on page X. The bad guys would come on page Y. Then they would be mated by page Z. I was skimming by the end, desperate to get through it.

But these characters of Cole's were peripherals in her other stories, and I am gleeful to see where their own story goes.

My favorite author would be a terribly difficult question to answer - because it depends on mood and inclination.

I always have running list of the "10 authors I would take to a desert island".

One of them is lately being re-discovered. For one because his writings about the crisis in the world from the 1920's-&-30's reflects many of todays political concerns. And also because the day after tomorrow is the 75th return of his suicide in Brazil, after fleeing from the Nazis. Austrian author

Stefan Zweig


Now I don't know how the translations into English are, but his original German is beautiful to read.

Being a scholar of Freud's he does very interesting psychological analysis of his characters, also of his female protagonists - a rarity in his times.
Especially his writing on actual historic events and protagonists is really good and insightful.

Where to start:

"Decisive Moments in History - 12 Historical Miniatures"
(a very fun read which gives an overview of partially amusing incidents that shaped world history)

"The World of Yesterday" and "Messages from a Lost World - Europe on the Brink" -
the ones currently most covered as they show the deline of Europe and the world between 1900-1930

"Mary Stuart" and "Marie Antoinette - Portrait of an average woman" -
wonderful analysis of the personalities of 2 queens.

He wrote a lot more - but you asked for favorites...

Here's something else to make you happy: you don't live with rabbits, either. At mealtime, they make dogs look positively reticent. My rabbit Buzzie (short for Beelzebub) not only scratches at my trouser leg, but has been known to nip my ankles if I don't share my toast with him (and it had better be buttered, too).

I've just realized that I have the best boyfriend ever. Since I'm gone for the week I won't be able to have sex with him obviously. So he handed me a bag yesterday at the station and I haven't had a chance to open it yet. Guess what's inside? My Lelo ❤❤❤ not only he knows I'm a horny teen, he also knows that my lelo is my fav lover and he's ok with that.

I put my own socks on today!!

I know that sounds idiotic, but I really hurt my back Sunday and I couldn't dress myself yesterday. I felt humiliated having to ask for help to put on my socks and shoes because I've always been so independent...

You never realize how many simple acts of movement you take for granted until you can't do those things due to pain....

Bit of a mixed one. My director (and direct manager) is leaving the company in two weeks. I really don’t blame him; our VP hired him as a Director, but treated him more like a staff engineer. (no fault of my direct boss, it is just the nature of our VP to delegate and communicate sparingly).

Mostly I’m happy: happy for my boss (he’s a nice guy, wasn’t happy with the situation here, and is excited about where he is going), and happy that it probably gives me more job security here (there isn’t a ton of QA work to do at the moment tbh, but still we need someone in this are). And for that matter hopefully he'd provide a decent job reference if I look at leaving or get laid off if things fall apart here.

But it is also a bit sad because, as I said, my boss is a nice guy. He's also very knowledgeable and quite patient, and I’ll miss him. It is also a reflection of the fact that the company I’m at is quite openly trying to sell itself, and nobody knows what that will mean for anyone here (or if we’ll manage to do so, and what happens if we don’t), and in that way it is an unpleasant reminder of the uncertainties.
