Had a terrible night last night: insomnia exacerbated by the hip thing playing up; then woke up ridiculous early and failed to get back to sleep - okay, I know, just lying in bed has some benefits - so got up earlier than I had intended, and went to the panel I thought I might do if I was up and breakfasted.

Walked about a little and had lunch - I have really not been terribly organised about arranging to have meals with people, sorry. Have a couple sorted for tomorrow, at least.

Chilled a little in my room in preparation for being on a panel then doing a reading.

I think I might have been more idea'd and articulate on the panel if I'd been better slept, but at least I managed to get in some of the thoughts I'd had.

The reading, I think, went well - at least, the audience laughed, and amusement was intended, so I think it counts as a win.

I am intending going to the GOH speeches but don't know how much longer than that I will manage to stay up.

Even though I had a reasonably decent night's sleep last night.

Good meetings with people and good conversations, some tasty food, a panel that (I think) went fairly well even though it was in the room I hate, with the speakers on a platform and a spread-out audience, and cold. (One might also mention the single microphone that had to be handed back and forth among the panel.)

Also managed to get to a couple of other panels.

Was contemplating the Tiptree Auction but felt some recharge time alone was necessitated, May go to the parties for a little while, but am already feeling a bit that what a hedjog wants is a nice cup of Horlicks and a Nice Book to go with it.

bannock-and-biopolitics:

You can’t understand politics in Montana without understanding how racism against Natives operates, fueling right-wing ire at Native people’s control over land and resources and presumptions that we’re corrupt, lazy, and hoarding money from hard-working whites who want to have the land for their own version of highest and best use, Gianforte ran on a racist campaign for that reason but only other Natives are talking about this aspect of the election and I am fucking sick to death of having to force the issue and get Americans to even think we constitute a political part of life worth more than evoking a crappy metaphor about immigrant nativism or the environment. 

In his race for governor in 2014 Gianforte said that Native Americans lacked “rule of law, respect for property rights, control of nepotism, ability to keep the fruits of their labor, and a cultural norm that celebrates success.” You really can’t get more blatantly racist than that.

this makes me so fucking mad

On Saturday, too.
  • Zbigniew Brzezinski, national security advisor to President Carter and father to Mika (TV reporter)
  • Jim Bunning, Hall of Fame pitcher (perfect game) and (*sigh*) conservative Senator from Kentucky
  • Gregg Allman, musician (Allman Brothers Band). Full story as it unravels.

And my "decision" not to mow the lawn has been completely justified by this morning's (rather musky) brown snake!

Picture! )

Maybe there is hope for the world after all.

Security services missed five opportunities to stop the Manchester bomber:

thickskinandelasticheart:

mehreenkasana:

The Manchester bomber was banned from a local mosque and reported by the Muslim community around him multiple times. UK authorities didn’t act.

I repeat: Not once, not twice, not thrice. Five times. They were alerted five times by the Muslim community around the bomber and were ignored.

Specifically, two of his close friends reported him after he made comments praising suicide bombers.

Two of his friends.

And it was ignored. And instantly after this happened and the bomber was identified as a Muslim, people began saying how ‘Muslims need to take greater steps to confront extremism in their own communities’, even though a mosque literally banned him, reported him and two of his friends did the same when he began expressing extremist sentiment.

Muslims can’t win even when they do the right thing.

Even worse, they also had info from other counter-terrorist agencies that he had ties with groups in Lybia and that his father had them as well. They did nothing.

Woooow. So basically:

Non Muslims: Please weed out the extremist from your groups MOZLEMS you need to take action!

Muslims: Here he is !! We’re warning you he’s an extremist!

Non Muslims: …….

Non Muslims: ANYWAY MOZLEMS NEVER SPEAK UP

I think “Congratulations on finally getting your diagnosis” cakes need to be a thing.

I bet you all thought I was joking…

I never joke about cake.

My OP is suddenly getting a shit-ton of reblogs and I’ve been sitting here all day thinking “you guise are all missing the best part!”

Like, yeah. Diagnosis cakes should be a thing. So goddamnit I made it a thing for myself. You can too.

You deserve a cake.

I love cake, and I love being right about medical issues, so this is perfect.
