Things I'm Done With

1. Family members who either don't understand why my illness makes certain things difficult for me, or take it upon themselves to decide something is too difficult for me, with no middle ground.

2. Same family members telling me at the same time to get on or off the pills, "which you can't afford because you're out of work and uninsured." Right, because taking the pills away from someone with MDD and PAD and no job is going to make her way more hireable.

3. People who know that I'm in the middle of a fight with someone else trying to cheer me up with sarcastic misogyny.

4. The Y-Chromosome in general. I've moved on to full misanthropy after "friend" mentioned below asked to be picked up at train station 2 hours before show, then, after I pulled up said, "We're going back to your place?" [I look up at ominous thunderheads and down at uncomfortable interview clothes, which I'd mentioned and wanted to shower out of. "Uh, yes." "Oh, I'll just meet you at the venue then."

5. Having no control of my own soundscape.

6. In an effort to get aforementioned family members the fuck off my back, having to drive through cross-town rush hour traffic  because they convinced a friend to come to the show with me, but are too drunk to pick her up from the train station. Which I guess means I also don't get to drink at the show. FUN!

7. Local friends sucking ass compared to distant friends. My [personal profile] jjhunter  sent me a care package of awesome the moment she found out I was in the middle of an episode. My "friend" who just became an officer in the Army National Guard is not only pulling today's crap, but on trip to see brother last weekend, told my brother a date rape joke while I sat in the backseat of the car. They both laughed. And my brother wonders why I cry around him when drunk and tired.

8. People failing to invent a cross-continental teleporter in a timely fashion, dammit.

(Hope the interview went well, and massive sarcastic wow for all this wtf boundary-pushing your local support network is currently inflicting on you.)

Random tangential things: a.) check your email; b.) I haz a rec for you!!!! er, recs. of shiny things. (Sorry, v. long week, moving in two days, eloquence & poise et al. have gone fishin'.)

shiny thing 1: Via 99%Invisible,
The architecture behind a piece of music can be much more involved than meets the ear, and this is what inspired Hrishikesh Hirway to start a podcast called Song Exploder, where musicians “take apart their songs, and piece by piece, tell the story of how they were made.”
shiny thing 2: you know the vidder lim, right? (If you don't, omg, run run run and go watch Flow asap, because such poetry of visual essay set to Paul Hartnoll is not to be missed.) Anyway, her last three vids re: MCU have been devastatingly good, and I think 'Marvel' and 'Expo' especially would really speak to you.
