It’s fall it’s fall it’s finally fall!  And as is so often the case around here, my fall is not just booked, it’s multi-volume seriesed.  I am about to start running and not stop for…well, way too long.  And so, since some of you may be asking, it’s time to play everybody’s favorite game…


This coming weekend, from September 29th through October 1st, I will be at Archon, in scenic Collinsville, IL!  Come for the party, stay to watch me quest endlessly for cake.  I really like cake in Illinois, y’all.  It makes me happy.  (Also come for the rare thrill of seeing me give a short concert with a guitarist I have literally never met before.  This should be fascinating.)

In early October, from the 13th through the 15th, I will be at Another Anime Con, in lovely Manchester, New Hampshire!  Better yet, I will have my Shawn.  Ever wanted to see one of the funniest slice of life sitcoms not currently on television?  Come and watch us move through the world together.  We are a genuine delight.

In mid-October, from the 19th to the 22nd, I will be at the Ohio Valley Filk Festival, in glorious Worthington, Ohio, where I have the rare and delightful honor of being the OVFF Guest of Honor.  We’ll be hitting a local haunted attraction on Thursday night, so wear your scare pants, and get ready for a good time!

Finally, in late October, Vixy and I will be fucking off to Disney World.  You know the best thing about Disney theme parks?  They let you pay in installment plans, and finish paying long, long before anything happens (like, say, your cat needing emergency surgery)…and they won’t give the money back, which means you have to go on your much-needed vacation no matter what, since otherwise, you’re just wasting your pennies.  We’ll be gone from the 23rd to the 31st.  During our absence, email sent via the website will probably not get forwarded to me (Vixy’s job), but that’s okay, as I wouldn’t be answering it anyway.

Where’s Seanan?

My condo has become a Bermuda Triangle for electronics. A few months ago: dropped Kobo and shattered screen. Two months ago: phone fried in freak accidents. Three weeks ago: computer begins screwing up when booting; kitchen tablet stops charging. Last week: main tablet starts having flickering screen, similar malfunctions (intermittent, non-demonstrable, start-stop for no apparent reason). Also, at one point my Kindle Fire was having charging problem, but that one just needed a new cable.

Really, it is no longer safe to have electronics in my house...

That said, after running 10 separate diagnostics, all of of which proclaimed with great certainty that my hard drive is fine, and waiting an hour for a Genius Bar tech to come over to look at it... of course, it's the hard drive. :( Which I'm annoyed about, since it hasn't been that long since I replaced this one. I've looked online, and it may be an issue of the mini not getting enough ventilation and overheating the HDD; macs are notorious for that, and mine is snugged into a fairly tight space. So I ordered a new monitor stand with lots of space for the mini to breathe, and we'll see. The same company that replaced it last time is doing it this time, but I think they're overcharging me for labor, so I'm going to check out some new places next time I need something the Genius Bar can't fix.

(I've also discovered that independent repair shops all express disdain of the Genius Bar. either I'm missing some major examples of Genius Bar incompetence, or the stores all feel really threatened by the existence of free tech support. One guy was actually arguing with me this morning about how Their store's diagnostics are much better and the Apple Store is no good. As the Genius Bar had literally nothing to gain by not giving me a good diagnostic, I'm choosing to go with with option: threatened.)

Took the sling off more this weekend, and that was nice. I can use it for short periods of time to type, if I keep most of the weight on my wrist rest, but getting dressed is still Fraught.

No time to watch yet, wedding and work, plus my father in town, but I just purchased an annual CBS "All Access" subscription so I can immerse myself in Star Trek: Discovery for the next few weeks, and in The Good Fight come 2018.

I really wish the television model were different, though. Not because of the money; I purchase shows on iTunes consistently (Wynonna Earp, Killjoys, Orphan Black, iZombie). But I worry that the no-network model of CBS here means the opposite of its name: less access to smart, well-written, diverse, and feminist shows for normal people who aren't able to drop yet more money on a limited slice of entertainment, good as it may be.

...are predictably depressing.

Please send love and virtual hugs. Also, punch a nazi for me, or ten.

For two bisexuals, my wife and I sure tick a lot of the lesbian boxes*. The one thing I regret about yesterday's wedding celebration up in Tilden Park, on a golden fall Saturday in Berkeley, is that we didn't get to pin a note to our little board with the photos and such, to remind people of Bi Visibility Day.

* A love for cats, hardware stores, tea,...

I'll post photos when they come in -- my former work wife took some GREAT ones, obviously already posted with acerbic commentary to social media. Ah. I miss her snark. My wife's sister-in-law, one of them, took photos with a nice DSLR, and I got a few shots in.

(I have hundreds of icons, but this is the singular one of two queer women together and alive by the end of canon -- skins' Naomi and Emily.)
