Getting in the Starting Blocks For May

Longtime visitors will recall that May tends to be a bit of a zoo around here in terms of convention travel.  Last year, it involved four conventions in five weekends.  This year, I get a break: four conventions in *six* weekends.  While it may not seem like much, that spare weekend between #3 and #4 is worth its weight in good dark chocolate.

Even as I begin packing and labeling the suitcases for their various, far-flung destinations, the good folks from the combined OutlantaCon/Gaylaxicon gathering have forwarded my programming schedule for this year’s celebration.  And it’s a winner!

Friday, May 2:

6pm – 7pm: Opening Ceremonies: Things will have actually started the night before and been going for a goodly part of the day, but this is the “official kick-off of the festivities.

Saturday, May 3

11am – 12pm: Writer's Story Telling Improv: Described as being “like Who's Line Is It Anyway but for story telling.” Audience supplies the situations, and my fellow panelists and I run with ‘em.  I have a hunch this one is going to be fun.

12pm – 1pm: Spotlight on... Lee Martindale: I have absolutely no idea what they have in mind for this, but when did *that* ever get in the way of a good time?

3pm – 4pm: The Face of Gay, with Kage Alan, Vandy Beth Glenn, Lee Martindale & Kiernan Kelly: Kage hosts a wonderful, thought-provoking blog called “The Face of Gay”, and at one or another, each of us on thepanel has contributed a piece for it. I expect the discussion to be wide-ranging and just as thought-provoking.

4pm – 5pm: Beyond Comfort in Your Own Skin, with Lee Martindale & Debbie Shannon. Debbie is a longtime self-acceptance and size acceptance activist, and I’ve been a size rights activist for over thirty-five years.  We’ll be discussing size activism and why self-imposed body judgment is a social booby trap from which we deserve to escape.  Should be a very lively hour.

5pm – 6pm: Allies: the Who, Why and How of Straight Supporters: As near as I can recall, this is the first time there’s been a panel with this as a focus.  I look forward to spirited, informative, and good discussion.

8pm - 9pm: The Match Game, with host Darren Nowell: It’s Baa-aack! The perennial OutlantaCon favorite styled on the 70s television game show where the panel matches answers with players filling in the blanks of questions with a definite LGBTIQ bent and a frequently deep-blue approach.  (Blush circuits? *What* blush circuits?) Once again, I am honored to be sitting the Fannie Flagg Memorial Chair and knocking the pins out from under the stereotypes about old ladies in wheelchairs. Ahem.

Sunday, May 4

noon - 1pm: Cylon Dreams, with Lee Martindale, Warren Rochelle, & Ally Blue.  Yep, you guessed it. We love Battlestar Galactica.

2pm – 3pm: Refusing Service, with Lee Martindale, Denny Upkins & Em Elliott. With attempts to legalize discrimination on the basis of business owners’ religious beliefs getting support from state governments, we’ll talk about what’s being done to stop them.


4pm – 5pm: Closing Ceremonies.

If I hadn’t made the decision to leave, then that last show at the flamenco school might have gone differently. Or maybe if Gloria hadn’t told me right before the show started that Carynne had called, I wouldn’t have been so on edge. It’s possible my memory has gilded my performance a little, but I really think it was good. I remember it as being the best, but maybe it’s just that one always remembers the last time for something with such fondness. I don’t know. Ramon was there that night, too. He’d been hanging around the school more and more, and I was happy to have him play with our group.

Marathon - (11th Doctor, River Song)

In other news, the payoff of dragging mom to cardiologist is learning that, short form, rumors of qualifying for hospice are exaggerated, and actually maybe that valve might want fixing in a few /years/. more when i'm not late for something.
and to elaborate,
firstly, she is in far far far better shape right now than anybody saw her in the hospital. secondly, there /was/ an MI as part of the beginning admit; that's probably healed up some, which helps on the firstly, but also the "hey, let's address the electrolyte imbalance" was just before discharge. thirdly, an echo in ICU has, well, issues -- the patient is unlikely to be helping with positioning and it's a portable gig. Most importantly, though, somewhere along the line someone forgot to deal with the concept of "severe" vs "critical," or was assuming "critical" because being here in the hospital implied symptoms, as opposed to it being one of many things that suck once you start with sepsis. But once you're looking at #s, normal aortic valve is maybe 2.5cm, critical is .6 opening, and the estimation from the echo they had was .9-1cm, PLUS there are other mitigating factors that might make even that an under estimation. He also mentioned that when one hears what in a murmur is indicative, and to him was indicative of severe and not critical. So come back in 4 months for another echo, and work on that PT, and most likely it'll be a couple more years before severe gets to critical, and if we're all lucky, TAVR will by then be able to handle her construction, but also if she donwanna he won't push.

I think a BIG part of it all, and a goodly amount of why i insisted on dragging her to Well-Regarded-Cardiologist is that the cardiologists associated with the hospital were a) changing practically daily, and b) not exactly good at communication, to the point where even the intensivist and palliative folks couldn't figure out what in hell the situation was. (And also in person with other docs - Jonathan tried to get a useful answer out of one of them.)

what this means for me is a) I'm not feeling like i can't ever get out of OMG Get Back Now range and b) I need to start looking at assisted living and suchlike.

It also means I'm rather happy that my initial experience with hospice was sufficiently annoying that I fired the guy, but perhaps even if I had started down that path i would have still insisted on getting a "no, really, where are we." It's also helpful that Mom apparently didnt retain the "oh btw, your heart valve wants to kill you, and soon."

This of course means that yay I apparently don't have to be an executor any time soon, but I now have all manner of decisions and plans to mess with, 'cause there /is/ actual planning to do again. especially in terms of where to go. The place she is in now has its problems (lots) but is familiar, and there is of course PT, but . .. urgh. Maybe i don't have to be trying to get there daily?

LiveJournal not affected by Heartbleed


Dear users,

As you might have heard, a major vulnerability in SSL (the secure channel used for HTTPS) has been detected recently. As many as two thirds of internet sites were affected, including social networks and major web sites.

We are happy to confirm that LiveJournal is not vulnerable and has not been affected at all.

Meanwhile, in the past 12 months we have been working hard to deploy many security features to protect user data.

Nevertheless, even though LiveJournal was not affected by the Heartbleed bug, changing your password is still a good idea, especially if you use similar passwords on other sites whose data may have been compromised. If you haven't changed your password in the last year, we recommend that you do so now.

It has been a busy 10 days since the Kickstarter (http://kck.st/R31kCx) launched and I wanted to catch everyone up on how the campaign is going. We topped $1,000 on the very first day, but the next $1,000 took the next 9 days to reach, so you could say things have slowed down a lot. We’ve only got another $1,500 to raise and 20 days to do it, so I feel confident we will. But I would like to remind folks of a couple of things:

1. DGC Chat!
I’ll be hosting an online video streaming chat on May 1. You can RSVP via the Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/470709286390303/ or just check out my uStream channel from 8-10pm eastern US time on May 1. Here: http://www.ustream.tv/channel/cecilia-tan

We had three regular tapas bars. There was the place where we had the gig, there was the place we had gone on the first night when I had arrived in Seville, and there was a place that the older flamenco crowd liked, one of the ones where regular jam/dance sessions broke out. Oddly enough, that was the place that had a radio behind the bar that they turned on to a station that played pop music in English from time to time.

By mid-July it was really too hot to busk outside in the afternoons. Not that we would have minded the heat ourselves, but no one would linger to listen or watch. So we left off going to the park entirely and concentrated on our evening gigs, two shows a week at Gloria’s school and, by then, two nights a week at the bar. It was one of those hot July afternoons when we were in the bar early for some reason. I was sitting with Orlando while he was talking to the bartender, a twenty-something woman with skinny arms but prodigious breasts. I wasn’t really listening to what they were saying since I could barely make out any of it anyway.

A song came on the radio. My ears perked up, something new, something that sounded kind of good…?

Savage Love: These ladies have questions

I’m a 26-year-old girl, and my boyfriend is bi. I assumed he would be less jealous than the average man. After all, a lot of bi men have faced irrational jealousy from women. But my BF is more jealous than average. He accuses me of having slept with my male friends in the past. He makes negative comments about how many people I’ve hooked up with. Whenever I won’t divulge something, he says, “Well, obviously that means you did hook up with that guy before we met/you do think that waiter was cute/you were looking at porn on your phone.” If I do admit I was involved with someone (or even that I think someone is cute), he gets really upset. He knows he’s insecure. He says he’s working on it. But do people grow out of this kind of thing? Also, this ...

Do You Want To Dance?

Mirrored from the latest entry in Daron's Guitar Chronicles.

It gets hot in Southern Spain in the summer. Although was it any hotter than most of the other places I’d lived? Maybe a little. It was regularly above ninety degrees. The apartment had air conditioners set in the walls next to the windows, but only in the bedrooms.

Not sure that’s really why I moved into Orlando’s room with him, though.

I haven't seen a Monday training thread update thread in a while, so I'll go first, and feel free to report your challenges and progress in the comments.

I finally made my goal of 20 regulation (on the toes) push ups in a row. I'd done the 100 push up program in order to do 100 knee-bent push ups in a row, and then did a transitional phase doing push ups on a low stair to get in the correct form for regulation push ups. It's taken me a while to get to 20 in a row, but I pulled it off today. I found that not only is my upper body much stronger than before I did the challenge, but it's been great for tightening up my core.

My main plan after this is to have more varied workouts but to be strong enough to incorporate full push ups into the mix on a regular basis.

What have you accomplished? What are your challenges? What are your goals for the coming week?

Thank you all, once again.

There's a (not-quite) full tank of gas in the truck, some extra groceries in the fridge, and enough money in the PayPal account that I can get cash back off a small purchase tomorrow and get the checking account out of the red before I get dinged for their "Extended Overdraft Fee" or whatever the hell they called it. Once that's done, I should still have enough left that I can finally put in the 2014 Upgrade disk I got from Quicken and start following my money more closely again, and then renew my membership at the therapy pool after the 15th (when it becomes $30 rather than $50).

I was able to go visit pentaclemoon last night for her birthday and stay up far too late chatting (okay, snarking) with her, cruz531, [tumblr.com profile] myrkrida, , and [twitter.com profile] KobaltBleu, and spent the drive there and back working my way through the WTNV archive (I've just finished "A Story About You"). I paid for my late night by spending the day dead for tax purposes; I finally got out of bed for good about an hour ago, and am now making clean-out-the-fridge sourdough bread pizzas for breakfast/lunch/dinner/whathaveyou.

facebook snippets from a new keyboard

quoting from myself over on fb, in response to my cousin saying that his trip to rio will require his long speedo,
"Folks, let's just bask in the demented glory of the phrase, 'I will need my long speedo'"

He explained that otherwise he would be labeled a tourist, and what had me laughing aloud was voltbang's observation that "sometimes it is better to be labeled a tourist than to go native badly."

Some searching showed us that yes, he did basically mean a bathing suit that was styled like biker shorts, as opposed to badmagic's visual of a thong that went over one's shoulders a la Borat, or my visual of one that tried to be like an elephant trunk, like Frederick's used to sell.

(yay joe gave me a little keyboard cover to go with the ipad, and it is omg light! typing on it now! and the batteries last for 6 months on one charge! )

Shutdown Successful


Well, the shutdown is done. That is, of course, the easy part. Still, we got a clean, complete backup just prior to the shutdown, and everything went down smoothly without any weird delays or unexpected behavior, so I am going to do my best to repeat that like a mantra and take what comfort I can. As always, there is a weird feeling of stepping off a precipice when you shut the equipment down, and it always feels as if I personally took some crazy risk, even though I really had no choice -- the city is going to cut the power. Anyway, I'll be all tied up in knots until tomorrow midmorning, at which time I will hopefully have some good news! And then we do it all again in two weeks.

Apr. 12th, 2014

Crossed midnight first doing my usual vaguely sexy dancing (isolations, spinny high crescent kicks), then a Lindy to goody two shoes. Happy, and apparently out of shape.
