I am reading "The Ocean at the End of the Lane" by Neil Gaiman and it is a lot of good (it keeps provoking really intense emotions!) but it has got the same problem as every other Neil Gaiman book I've ever read.

Gaiman's written a great, interesting male protagonist and he's written some really interesting female archetypes.

DO YOU SEE MY PROBLEM.

Meta positing MCU's Natasha Romanoff as a child of post-USSR Russia.

Vague spoilers for Cap 2, but nothing that fandom hasn't already made fanon or seen in other Marvel canons.

After a really terrible doctor's appointment (the only good part was that because it went so poorly, I never have to deal with that disdainful receptionist again), I drowned my sorrows and tireds in Captain American 2. Assume everything below is spoilery. Also included are some spoilers for Thor 2.

Now I remember why I used to pour every detail of my life into my blogging.

It's hard being social isolated and the internet is one of very few outreach points. The only difference between now and ten years ago is that my instinct is to dump it all into Twitter, rather than LiveJournal.

For those of you NOT keeping score on Twitter: My food intolerances, a long-standing problem, have cascaded since January. My health is worse than it's been in almost a decade and if you've only known me for the last four years or less (most of you, I reckon) y'all ain't seen nothing yet from me, re: blogging about my health.

Please send love and good wishes while I try to hold my life together through some pretty awful fatigue.

This article is all of my feels about the HIMYM finale.

Although I would have used an "f" word (not fuck, that one's not a spoiler).

Live reactions to the Teen Wolf's S3b finale. SPOILERS. SO MANY SPOILERS.

Read more...Collapse )

SO THAT WAS THE FINALE. I thought the middle of the episode carried the tension really well, the fall-out from last week's [spoiler] was reasonably well-handleded, and I wish some characters had had more to do, but I'm mostly just embarrassingly grateful for their continued existence.

So here's the deal if you're ever hanging out with someone with food allergies, sensitivities or an otherwise restricted diet.

-Take them at face value when they disclose. Believe them.
-Ask if it's okay before you pepper them with questions. Let it drop if they say "No".
-Keep any guilt to yourself. It's not your fault and respect that I made an informed, adult decision when I showed up to a place I knew would be serving food I can't eat.
-Don't offer not to eat. You do not have to be a martyr for my cause. Remember what I said about informed, adult decisions?
-If you want to talk about what the hell unrecognizable foods are on my plate, that is usually okay and usually kind of fun (and with strangers, a great icebreaker).
-DON'T MAKE A MOUNTAIN OUT OF A MOLEHILL BY FUSSING.
-Because sometimes it really IS a mountain for us and it's enough work to manage our own emotions without trying to deal with yours.

(With all of my affection to 9/10 food service providers, who are totally reasonable about "food allergies" as a valid excuse for not ordering off of the menu or for letting me eat my own food in your establishment, plated or not.)
