So, yesterday's post was postponed due to Head Bees, but not due to migraines. I had my first round of Serious Level Neck shots. They put me out for it--as painful as the Junior level shots can get, I figured it was wise. And I was correct. I even felt the pain under general (light) anesthesia. They must've had a good laugh. I know I was whispering "Ouch." over and over at one point. I've zero memory after that. So, they hit me with the hard stuff. Anyway, I'm super happy because it worked! It's raining and overcast today and I don't even have sparkles on the edges of my vision. Zilch. And I didn't wake up with my shoulders cramped up and digging into my ears. I feel very lucky to have this as an option. It isn't cheap, y'all. And not everyone who has migraines has an option that works this well. Did I mention I <3 science, modern medicine, and medical insurance? I wouldn't be alive today without them. (Please, oh, please, let single-payer be in America's future. It's not ethical that not everyone can get the care they need.)
Anyway, my husband took me home afterward, he made me a pillow nest like he does, and I ended up watching tv. I needed something soothing. So, I turned on Netflix and lo and behold there was Anne with an E.
I love it. I confess, I never read the novels. (I was too immersed in Joan Aiken's and Zilch Keatley Snyder's books to even notice.) Based upon conversations I've had with Jen from Skiffy and Fanta, well...I suspect they might have glossed over the very real threat and abuse Anne would've lived with before the Cuthberts came into her life. This version doesn't do that. At. All. Also, they do a wonderful job of underlining Diana's Aunt's lesbian relationship with zero judgement of any kind. I love-love-love that. Yes, the cast is awfully white. That's the only downside as I see it. So yesterday was pretty wonderful in spite of the (slight) pain. All that, and Torchy's Tacos. :)
So, imagine how happy I am to wake up to news that we've a special prosecutor in the Russia-Trump investigation AND he's amazing. I'm thrilled to death about this development. [crosses fingers] Here's hoping for an impeachment and a thorough White House scrubbing of collaborators no later than 2018.
To top it off, I also just found out about this:
Per usual, I'm actually crying right now. (Sadly, this happens every time I see an instance of Feminism/powerful, non-sexualized female representation in SF.) Not only an Asian woman captain but a black woman too?! FINALLY!!!!!! I'm so proud of Star Trek and of being a Trekkie. I truly am.
