Friends mostly! I still do a lot of public posts, but non-friends are screened by default.

BEFORE YOU READ ANY FURTHER, READ THIS: http://fayanora.livejournal.com/838343.html

Buy my book! (science fiction)

Buy my dad's book! (nonfiction)

Molly Elizabeth's wishlist

Kindle books wishlist

Alex's wishlist

Music wishlist

Robert Anton Wilson books to get me.



(Click the picture to get at least an idea of the meanings. Only "ingenuus memes" are defined there yet. That and the opposites of the others.)

Friends mostly. Mainly means there's a bunch of content friends-locked. Also, non-friends and anonymous posters are screened by default. If you are an ass in your comments, your comments will be deleted.

Comment to be added. And if you're an old friend getting a new LJ, let me know that information.

Friending must-knows:

1. I do not tolerate myself or my friends being made fun of for any reason. If I find you have done this, you will be unfriended and banned.

2. I NEVER do friend-culls. If you find you've been banned, it's either a mistake or for the above reason. If you believe it to be a mistake, let me know.

Also, there are three stages here:

1. There's an "Acquaintances" filter, for people I don't know very well. Not much more they get to see than public does, but some things. If you never see any friends-locked entries here, let me know. It seems I have to add people to the Acquaintances filter.

2. Friends - They see the most.

3. Multiplicity - Ask me about this one. It's got the most personal stuff of mine.

Fun stuff and more information. )

Peace;

Sometimes the muscles in my temple get hard and painful after chewing. Usually it passes after an hour or two. But it's now been doing it since around 8 am today and won't go away. It's not as bad as it was; earlier, it was bad enough I had to take pain relievers to get to sleep. But they're still not back to normal, and they still hurt.

It's especially vexing because I don't think I ate anything especially chewy yesterday.

This is fucking weird and cool: Apparently the Ottoman Turkish soldiers back in the day had a fighting technique they could use if they lost their weapons, called the Ottoman Slap. These guys could slap hard enough to knock out a horse or kill a human being. And they did it because in their culture, punching people was what women did, and slapping was the manly thing to do.

Ugh. Coming up with an atheist character for the Ravenstone story, and I want to give him a name meaning "godless" or something like it, because there's a fuckton of names that mean "servant of god" or "god's gift" or something similar. But I don't want it to be obvious. I even considered Ateo from Italian, and thought that might be too obvious. (But I might use it anyway if nothing better comes along.)

The character in question is a friend of the Ravenstones, but isn't part of the family by either blood or marriage. (He's unmarried.) So I'd prefer a name that looks/sounds relatively normal but I'll consider weirder names too, since, well... friends of the Ravenstones would be weird, too.

LOL

The forest fires in Oregon are still going. Here in Portland, the smoke is so bad you can even see it at night! Around streetlights and other light sources mostly, but the moon - a deep blood orange color - is so obscured by haze you can barely make out the moon's face, like looking at it through frosted glass.

My roommate is fleeing for Colorado again, because the last time the forest fires were making haze just a month ago, she couldn't breathe, and it's even worse now. Even more important as a sign of how bad it's getting: even I am having trouble breathing when I go outside, and I didn't even notice any difference the last time.

We need rain! We need it so bad we're getting really close to "sacrifice a goat to the rain gods" level. I'm even tempted to pray to Eris, we need rain so badly!

(The joke there being that praying to Eris for rain will inevitably end in a flash flood, according to the Principia Discordia.)

The other day this guy tried complimenting me by telling me he liked my pale skin. Over the years, I've learned how to take compliments by responding with a "thank you!" where before I would just stare in confusion. But this time, well... I don't like being pale. So I didn't acknowledge his "compliment," let alone thank him for it.

Also, it's a weird-ass thing to compliment someone on, unless they're dressed like a goth and trying to look pale.

Heat

The other day, I had to be outside in 90+ heat. I think it was 99 or close to it. I was out in that shit for hours, and I was with my roomie, who is from The South. I told her I finally understood why southerners spoke in that slow drawl: because the heat makes people slow and makes it hard to think. She basically agreed, saying that everything is done slow in the South because of the heat. And I responded that I find it astonishing that they managed to have any kind of civilization at all down there. If everyone was like me, the South would never have been colonized by anybody ever, it would be wilderness, and everyone would live farther north.

Truly, 90% of the planet is uninhabitable to me. Anything that isn't perfect is either too hot or too cold.

I also commented that I understood why the people of Traipah live mostly underground, because their planet is warmer than Earth. Then I amended the comment with "Well, it was warmer there when I first started writing the story. Not sure if it still would be now because of global warming."

(Traipah doesn't have ice caps. It's cold at the poles, but not too bad. Snow falls at the north pole sometimes but rarely sticks around. The south pole is open ocean.)

Lost

Last week, I went out for a walk (at night) and did a little magick while I was doing it. I only intended to be out for 20 minutes, but I wasn't paying enough attention and ended up getting turned around. I got so badly lost I ended up around 40th and Fremont (I live near 57th). I have no idea how I got that lost, it shouldn't be possible. I mean yes, there was a point at which, for 20 minutes, I couldn't figure out which way was north, but still... it was the first time I can ever remember getting legitimately lost.

Anyway, I finally found the graveyard on Fremont, though I mistook it for the street behind the Albertsons. Albertsons is right next door to my apartment. So you can imagine my confusion when I realized I wasn't where I thought I was. Then I continued not being sure where I was until I got to Fremont and realized I'd gone all the way to 40th and Fremont.

I was so tired I ended up taking the bus home once I got to 57th and Fremont.

Eclipse

fayanora: weirderons (weirderons)
Not gonna watch the eclipse. I saw one as a kid and I wasn't impressed even though I understood the significance. It was a lot of hype for something I could barely see that lasted only a few minutes, and my overwhelming feeling at the time was "that's it? That's what all this fuss was about?"

I've honestly been more annoyed about the eclipse than anything other emotion. The only part of it I like is the fact it's gonna cost the capitalists something like seven million or seven billion dollars in lost productivity, it amuses me.

Also I'll probably be asleep by then, though I don't know because I didn't bother looking up the time. Also I don't have any eclipse glasses anyway so I couldn't see it even if I gave a single shit about the eclipse.

I can't stand needles and because of that I will never get a tattoo, but I keep thinking about tattoos I would get if I could get one without needles or pain or blood:

* Djao-Kain's symbol over my left breast.
* Possibly the Eye of Grahbahn over the right breast.
* Fairy wings on my back.
* Some sort of TPNN writing, probably Djao-Kain's name.

Laura from the movie "Logan" is supposedly a clone of Logan (Wolverine). If it's true that Laura is a clone of Logan, then we can assume one of the following things is true:

1. Logan is a trans man somehow, genetically female but clearly a man somehow regardless.

2. Logan might be an XXY man. Probably not, because he doesn't fit the body type for an XXY man, though that could be the result of his mutation. If he IS an XXY man, though, then if the clone somehow lost the Y chromosome, she would be a girl and would be an imperfect clone.

3. Maybe Laura is a trans girl somehow?

4. Maybe Logan is a normal XY man and in the cloning process Laura lost the Y chromosome? Probably not, because her body doesn't match Turner Syndrome. Unless maybe her mutant gene cancelled that out?

5. Another possibility is Logan is an XXXY male, but since the effects are similar to XXY only more so, this is also unlikely.

6. Maybe Logan has some other kind of intersex condition, one that's not genetic but something in the womb, to make him genetically XX but somehow male, like some gene got copied wrong and made him grow testicles?

If it's not true:

1. Perhaps Laura isn't a clone at all, just mostly a clone; maybe they removed the Y chromosome for some reason and put in a second X chromosome. I don't see why they'd do that unless they just wanted to see what would happen, though, because there's no way to know how a new X chromosome, even if you just copied the original X chromosome and stuck it in there, would change the resulting organism. But again, maybe they just wanted to see what would happen.

2. Or Laura isn't a clone at all, in another way: maybe they just took someone else's DNA and attached Logan's mutant gene to it, making her genetically engineered, and still in a sense her father, just not a clone.

Any options I missed?
