I got a deep filling this afternoon.  The entire left side of my face is throbbing. Plus my dentist has a bad cold and he was coughing the entire time.  When I expressed concern, he said, “I’m wearing a mask”.  If I get sick and die, I’m suing his ass.  He was also snapping at his assistant.  Big fun.

I had extremely mushy spaghetti and cottage cheese for dinner.  It hurt to eat that.

I am SWAMPED SWAMPED SWAMPED due to the upcoming release of my novel, THE ABORTIONIST'S DAUGHTER!  A number of nice reviews have come out, but the book itself isn't put together completely, my pre-order on my website doesn't work, I haven't even BEGUN the work for Ingram...

Kill me now.

On the other hand, I loved Supernatural's 200th episode and last week's Walking Dead.  Eugene is my spirit animal.

The true-crime show I wrote, "Toasted," was based on events that happened in 1998.  This is from the very first version, in 2001.  This was on the back of the program.  How times have changed!!!

I don't have Instagram, and I'm not interested in having Instagram.  Until recently, I could look at Instagram pictures.  Today, however, the link promptly disappears and I am taken to the home page.  I dont want the damn app!  My phone is too old, for one thing, with no access to the Internet.

Does anyone know how I can get around this?

Only [ profile] petitecuriosityand [ profile] flywoman have seen this, and they were pretty baffled.  This is the only vid I've ever made.  We had finished a performance of the play based on my blog, "Diary of A Mad Fashionista" in 2008.  I had wanted to end the show with a parody of "What A Feeling," but the director veto'd it. 

The plot: The Mad Fashionista is intent on getting a 1967 Christian Dior cheetah coat with otter collar and cuffs.  But she is outbid by her worst rival, Sabrina Airchild.  However, through a rather complicated set of circumstances, the Fashionista gets the coat!  So she and the coat live happily ever after.

 So, think of it as bad interpretive dance.  We had the sound booth playing the song, and Alan used a handheld camera, and I did the rest.  So, for those of you who don't know what I look like, be dazzled by my bovine grace. It's been a bit funky: you might have to go to YouTube.

I happened to look at a blog someone recommended to me about silent movies.  Turned out it was ended a few  years ago, and very graciously, too.  I haven't written there since September, and I keep wanting to start a public blog about me and my activities.  So that's what I'm going to do.  It won't have much to do with what I write here.  There might be some crossover.

Very sad...but I got a lot out of it while it was going.


Of course I'm feeling very sad, but I've been feeling sad about it a long time.  I'm relieved that I ended it publicly.

However, I will still be Her on Twitter.  How else will I be able to make such scabrous jokes??

Anyone who knows me knows where my sympathies lie.  I got up this morning at 6 AM to vote, and I am so glad I did.  For whatever one can say about our fucked-up, broken electoral system, it's what we have and what we can use as a voice of the people.  The polling place, in a local high school gym, was packed.  There was a lot of grumbling because of the new polling system (filling in paper ballots at "privacy booths" then carrying them back to be scanned), and long lines, but we all stuck it out.  The thing I was proudest of were those people who brought their children to demonstrate how the political process works.

Folks, I know you're tired of me yelling at you, but you should be aware that there's a hearing this morning being held by the US House Judiciary Committee on a "copyright" bill that will essentially break the entire internet.

You like the internet, right? I mean, you're here.

From the link above:

As drafted, the legislation would grant the government and private parties unprecedented power to interfere with the Internet's domain name system (DNS). The government would be able to force ISPs and search engines to redirect or dump users' attempts to reach certain websites' URLs. In response, third parties will woo average users to alternative servers that offer access to the entire Internet (not just the newly censored U.S. version), which will create new computer security vulnerabilities as the reliability and universality of the DNS evaporates.

It gets worse: Under SOPA's provisions, service providers (including hosting services) would be under new pressure to monitor and police their users’ activities. While PROTECT-IP targeted sites “dedicated to infringing activities,” SOPA targets websites that simply don’t do enough to track and police infringement (and it is not at all clear what would be enough). And it creates new powers to shut down folks who provide tools to help users get access to the Internet the rest of the world sees (not just the “U.S. authorized version”).

This is being framed as an attempt to fight hackers and pirates. Don't buy it. And don't think for a minute that it's going to stop there. This is bad. And at the hearing today, only one opponent of the bill is being allowed to testify.

Please do whatever you can to fight this. Email congresspeople. Sign petitions. Yell about it in every venue you can.
