The girl from 22 is lonely
The boy from 23 is lonely
The girl from 24 is lonely

The girl from 22's moved out
She's moved into another town
She's moving to another street

Another street where she won't meet
The boy from 23 who's lovely.

From Last by The Unthanks.

Have you got a favourite Motown act?

And on a similar theme: Which song is best - Reach Out I'll Be There, Bernadette, or Standing in the Shadows of Love?

WHat kind of self-respecting online movie-store hasn't got a copy of Dog Day Afternoon?

A bad one!

So much for my Sidney Lumet/Al Pacino double-bill christmas gift for my youngest brother.

Eeeeeexcept there are things the narrator of 300 was not present for.

But I do agree. Work of art. There is a place for ridiculously over the top muscle action with lots of yelling and slomo.

And in the case of 300, that place is a thrash compactor.

I'll take the cravat over the breeches and tights. I've had to wear those for period operas, and they're not the greatest.
Standard fencing gear (long socks & (padded) breeches, anyway). Adding a cravat, or maybe a ruff, could only improve things.

Adding neckwear never helps with anything.

OK, so this weekend, the least of my issues was dealing with a flu-like bug.

My grandmother passed away yesterday. She had Alzheimer's for 10 years (at least), so I already "lost" her in a sense, but it was sad to find out about her death. By all accounts, she passed peacefully.

My wife has a kidney infection, and she was almost admitted to the hospital on Saturday. The antibiotics don't seem to be helping, so I think I'll be driving her there in the very near future.

So, bleh.

So sorry to hear this. Hope your wife gets better fast.

As a Tremontaine reader, I have to answer Tomatoe pie.

And here's why:

Micah hadn’t realized that cheese could be so good, all melty and drippy on top of tomato goop on top of flat bread baked in an oven.

Of course, in reality a Bergman joke was more of the "character sets his own fart on fire" type. (It's in Fanny & Alexander, which also has a young Pernilla August [Darth Vader's mom] as a maid.)

Seriously , My AV company had a salesman that landed us the Microsoft AV business for a few years. He made the mistake of showing up at MS HQ with his usual tie on. They walked up and said hi, took out a pair of scissors, and Cut his tie off right there in the lobby. :)

He never wore a tie to MS again. :)

There was a restaurant just outside Phoenix (until recently when it closed =( ) called Pinnacle Peak that would do the exact same thing if you showed up with a tie. Ebon's got several stories of family members and friends bringing particularly disliked ties there specifically for the opportunity to have them destroyed.


And people say New York is weird...

Seriously. I've never had someone destroy my attire here.

You've just not dated the right people.

Tremontaine, part 1 wrote:

Now the streets were full of people; men of all ages in black robes, scurrying about as though they were rats set free from a trap. The big bell must have released them. They didn’t see anything wrong with pushing to get where they were going, either. Micah really, really hated being pushed, or even being brushed, by strangers.

She tried going back the way she’d come, but the black-clad rats wouldn’t let her. She was scared, now. She counted backwards from two hundred and fifteen by numbers divisible by three. That usually helped. But people kept bumping into her. She couldn’t see where the street ended so she couldn’t tell where to turn. She was losing her numbers. She was losing her maps—

Tremontaine, part 2 wrote:

Micah sat at the same table in the Blackbird’s Nest as she had the first time that Rafe brought her—in back, near the kitchens. It was a good table: away from the crowd by the bar and the rowdier gamblers. During an early afternoon on a market day, the low-roofed, tallow-lit room was full, but Micah could still think around the beer smells and kitchen noises and gamblers’ patter. All she had to do was keep her eyes on the worn cards in her hand, and the fascinating pattern of the ancient wood grain beneath them.

“Call,” said the long-haired student sitting across from her. He tossed the last of his minnows casually on the pile at the center of the table. Micah calculated that the pot now held enough for two and a half tomato pies and two ginger beers. Or two tomato pies and three ginger beers. Micah frowned, trying to decide which she would prefer, and decided that it would depend on how hungry Rafe was. She had come here on her own today because all the money was gone from the chest in their rooms and she had wanted something more than a roasted potato. And now she could buy tomato pies for herself and Rafe, to thank him for the place to sleep. And the equations. The equations were very nice.

Micah didn’t have a good hand—just a pair of Suns—but the long-haired student couldn’t have any card higher than a Beast and the older man in a dockworker’s clothes had held a three-of-a-kind that would have beat either of their hands, but he had folded for reasons that still escaped Micah, though she had learned to accept them, like the weather.

“All right,” Micah said, and held his gaze. Joshua had told her that this unnerved the other players, and so she had learned to do it for a few seconds at a time. She didn’t much like it either, but they almost always looked away first.

The other players put down their cards. The student scowled at his hand while Micah busily arranged her winnings in stacks ordered by the size and value of the coins.

“Another hand,” said the student, with a funny sort of lift in his voice. Micah decided that she should ask Joshua what it meant when their voices got tight like that, and their eyebrows started wandering up their foreheads like caterpillars. Joshua was better at that sort of thing than Rafe. Rafe was better at talking.

She was trying to decide if it was worth waiting out her next good hand when a crowd of students pushed in through the narrow front door.
“They’re meeting now, the bastards!”
“Who’s meeting, Dickson?”
“The governors! Word is they could even take the vote!”

Micah, putting the last five-minnow in its stack, had been trying to ignore the noisy intruders. But then the student with the wandering eyebrows stood abruptly and smacked his fist on the table, toppling her careful piles. The shouting grew very loud. In a sudden panic, Micah shoved the coins into the inside pocket of her jerkin. Losing the coins would be worse than jumbling them up, and she could put them in good order later. She was still very hungry. She should certainly leave. But when she looked up, all she saw was a smear, noise and high emotion blurring the angry faces before her into a mob.

So I'm basically going to spend the next three months worrying about Micah, it seems...

Incidentally, the Swedish word for "cheesecake" is "cheesecake" due to "ostkaka" being taken by a completely different (and much better-tasting) dish.

Damnit! Ninjaed by over two hours.

As a bit of an obsessive-compulsive, I can state that:

- In 2014, I turned on the bedrooms' wall heater November 13, and the living room heater November 17
- In 2015, I turned on both heaters November 4, and had them both on this morning.

So seems like we're getting an earlier cold snap this year, but "cold" around here means lows in the mid-40's.

Yeah last night was the first time I have used the heater in a loooonnggg time

This morning's paper round was done in shorts and t-shirt. :p

Sort of. It was to honour the victims of the nazi school attack we had here in town the previous Thursday. I'm thinking about making a thread where I've translated the local paper's coverage of it into English.

Queer fantasy serial that began on Wednesday

Available as pdf, epub, some other e-book format I don't use, and as audio.

Also: The first part is awesome!

Yes. Yes you do. ;-)

(And you don't even have to read them in order, though it helps.)

Which is your favourite Doctor Who serial?

Luna by Ian MacDonald
Deadly Election by Lindsey Davis
and Tremontaine by Ellen Kushner, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Malinda Lo, Joel Derfner, Racheline Maltese, Patty Bryant, Paul Witcover (it's a serial, with part written by a different author, although since it's 13 parts I guess some of them wrote more than one)

Currently reading "A History of the Arab Peoples", by Albert Hourani. I picked it up years ago because it looked interesting, then forgot about it. Lots of interesting and timely info in it.

It's been ages since I read it, but I think he also wrote a pretty good book on the Crusades from the Arab perspective.

I actually like and occasionally even use "Blood and Ashes" from the Wheel of Time. Or "Blood and Bloody Ashes" for emphasis.

Of course, I also use "Bother", from Pooh. :)

I may have done those things as well...

I don't understand how hard cider is a girly drink, it has more alcohol than most beers. Tastes better too.

Because real men only drink beer and hard liquor.

Welcome Josh.

And on Tuesday we buried grandma.

Which probably came six months too late - she had a rubbish last year with no dignity and no chance of doing anything about it. There wasn't a time I met her she didn't seem depressed, and the feeling you got was that she wanted it to be over with, so my feeling was more relief than grief, to be honest.

So this is basically the first thing I saw when I woke up today.

500 meters (about 1 minute by bike if I don't have to use the brakes) from where I live, and the same building where I go to the library.

One of the librarians was in the same year as me in librarian school, and there's a good chance some of the kids at the school are related to people who went to the same school as me when we were 13-15 years old.

Thank the Swedish legislative only the police had firearms.
