I'm writing "Stormy Weather 2" out of the Miraculous Ladybug canon.

Also I'm going to make "Stormy Weather 2 What Stormy Weather 2" an AO3 tag. It is going on all my future ML fics that do not explicitly deal with this episode.

I fucked up

I forgot that today is the Mnstf Pool Party.  It is one of the two (three, if you count Minicon) Big Deal parties of the year.  I have been having unusually bad brain weather, and so keeping track of things like, Today Is a Day I Go to Work has been difficult.  I didn't wake up until 9:30 p.m., and had to shower and red up the media room because Eric and Pamela are sleeping here to night, so I wasn't really ready to put on clothes and leave the house until 10:30 p.m.  By the time I got to the hotel, it would be 11:00 p.m., minimum, and many of my friends will have already left.  So, I've decided to stay at home and drink beer and eat nachos.

I'm really angry about this, but there's no one to be angry _at_.  It was no one's job to remind me, and no one's job to make me make plans, and I forgot, and I didn't make plans, and I haven't seen my Mnstf friends in forever, and I'm just really sad and pissed.

Possibly it will be more than one beer.

In 2012, I was briefly a skateboarder. I loved the speed and grace and daring of it--I wanted to touch that and live that.

That time was brought back to me so vividly tonight watching Skate Kitchen (2018), which I requested from Netflix DVD because of [personal profile] osprey_archer's excellent review) of it. The film coveys the feel of skateboarding beautifully (and also the dangers of it--part of why I quit: I loved the daring but wasn't up for the injuries), and I loved the posse of girls--real-life members of the Skate Kitchen, an all-girl skate collective in New York City. The director apparently met members of the collective while riding the subway, and she used Rachelle Vinberg, who plays the main character in Skate Kitchen, in a 2016 short film, That One Day.)

The scenes of New York City's skating haunts are ones I remember from a video of skateboarding I found and posted back in 2012--it made the movie feel extra real to me.

The trailer pretty accurately captures the feel of the film:

And [personal profile] osprey_archer, the quote you were trying to find is the voiceover at the start of the trailer (and the scene with the little girl is in the trailer too). You're right: it's beautiful.

This is the other review I wrote last weekend, and as with the other I'm satisfied that I got down in writing what I wanted to say.

That what Max Richter was doing with Vivaldi was conceptually identical to what Luciano Berio used to do with Schubert, Monteverdi, et al, despite the very different compositional styles, is something that occurred to me while listening to it. The next thought, of course, was that I like Richter's way of doing it much better. The line about Berio just getting grubby fingerprints all over his betters' music comes from a comment I once made to a post on Berio by the late Alan Rich. He replied that he admired the quality of Berio's mind. I don't; but I do admire the quality of Richter's.

Scott and I went back to the glasses place to double check that my progressives are actually the right prescription. Two different people double checked the glasses against the copy of the prescription. The glasses they made match the prescription I had, so I'm going to have to talk to the ophthalmologist.

I'm pretty sure that wearing an eye patch and changing it back and forth frequently would make the glasses useful, but that seems like it wouldn't be a good longterm course.

Scott and I did the grocery shopping after the glasses store. I wore the progressives there and managed to get by, but they're really most workable at a distance. I got to the point of being able to walk without feeling dizzy, but I still couldn't read the list with both eyes open and the glasses on.

I'm hating my bras right now. I can't tell if it's them getting old or me being more sensitive the last few weeks. Possibly it's both? The problem is largely in the band and is 95% underneath the breast that had the lumpectomy which is suspicious. I don't want to buy more bras right now. Maybe I can start doing without a bra for more of the day. I'd like to. I spent nearly thirty years not wearing the damned things and only started after the lumpectomy.
