[grief post]

The character River Song on Doctor Who, the Doctor's so-called wife, was a recurring character during the years my wife was ill. She discovered the lump between the crash of the Byzantium and the opening of the Pandorica, and the second-to-last Doctor Who she saw was when the Doctor and River said goodbye. Listening to the soundtrack music I have for those years is something I do for the melancholy. So when it was announced River was being brought back for this year's Christmas special, for me that meant a story about my biggest hero getting one last visit with his wife long after their time together was done. In the event it was not as hard to watch as I thought it might be; and that disappoints me.

Looks like what I'm getting for Christmas is two days when I don't have to leave the house even if I want to.

  • The only way we'd be unable to tell which timeline the new Star Trek series is on is if it has an entirely new stardate system.
  • Do I want fishsticks for supper badly enough to put on pants and go get some?
  • If there had been no timeskips at AKOTAS we'd now be in the middle of one time that was skipped.
  • Or condensed. The "sketch hiatus" sketches were all set in the time being skipped, prorated for the hiatus length.
  • Right now we'd be at a time between this one and the next one: http://www.arthurkingoftimeandspace.com/2615.htm
  • One of the cats thinks the center of the narrow corner hall is where several beanie babies belong.
  • a half hour nap at 21:30 might not have been the bright thing to do but maybe I can finish that cartoon now after all
  • Napping and then drawing worked well last night. Let's try it again.
  • OMG DANCING MEN #elementary
  • Phe frequency that two-item shopping lists send me to both far corners of the store irks me.
  • Somebody asked me whether The Force Awakens is really two hours and forty five minutes and I had to say, "I dunno."
  • Today's shopping list: cat litter and toilet paper. Something for everyone.

Today I turn 56, which is a multiple of seven. The reason it’s significant that it’s a multiple of seven is that when young I came across the assertion that the human body’s rate of cell replentishment is such that you get a whole new body over seven years, which a very interesting factoid to a Doctor Who fan. If I were the Doctor, today is the day I crash on Karn and drink the cup and say, “Doctor no more.” Lucky for me I didn’t turn 56 before we found out that happened.

Alternatively, if I count from when I started drawing daily cartoons (which is to say, from when my story started being told), it’s about 39.67 years, which puts me in the latter days of my sixth body, after meeting Glitz the first time but before meeting Sil the second time.

Pretty much as soon as I finished the insomnia entry I decided to give up this week's overtime hours.

so last week and this week there's overtime at work which I like to say yes to because they're so flexible with my schedule when it's needed like when my wife was dying of cancer, and also both weeks and next week there are doctor/dentist appointments to make up worktime for, and last week there was a church bell choir performance at the church's annual musicfest, and there's this commission I agreed to draw for someone at church to see whether I liked doing commissions and it's interesting but another stressor, and I'm so tired that yesterday I posted the Twitter and Tumblr links to a new Hero of Three Faces but never uploaded the goddam cartoon, and Friday my stepson and his family are coming back into town for a coupla weeks, and I'm tired and out of sorts and I think my mother realized last night that it's worse than I did, and it doesn't look like I'll get a day off next weekend any more than I did last weekend, and I haven't really been on the internet for two days cuz so much is going on and then I get insomnia and catch up on LJ and there are two posts from different people about loved ones who are about two years dead like my wife who died of cancer, and I think I've got too old for this shit

Last weekend I deleted all her bookmarks from the browser on the Chromebook, which is the computer attached to the tv, and bookmarked the pages I use for tv viewing of stuff that doesn't come on the Hulu app for the Fire tv stick. (Some Hulu programs e.g. Vikings are web-only, and some networks e.g. CBS don't do Hulu at all.) It is surprising how much this removes a psychological barrier against switching away from the stick that I didn't even know was there. The stick remote must be that much easier to use than the notebook computer's wireless mouse.

Day of leisure at work today (and yesterday) cuz my team's dictation application's been switched to a remote server with NO AUDIO HARDWARE.
The switch'd been implemented for a day before anyone realized because despite a week's notice we STILL DON'T HAVE PERMISSIONS TO ACCESS IT.

RT @LOLGOP Ayn Rand would be against the idea of you giving your measles to people. You should be properly compensated for them.

been suckered into using the character string "sharknado" once or twice but never, I think, that franchise about abuse pretending to be BDSM
Aaah, no, I'm wrong, I drew a cartoon about it once. Bother.

In the Lou Grant football injury episode Charlie says, "You act like if you admit the game has a few flaws it'll be taken away." #gamergate

Wait, so, now, Gwen Stacy has come back from the dead? And is Spider-Man? Uncle Ben, you're on deck.
@aedaily Oh, right, okay, this is that Crisis On Infinite Spider-Mans thing going on that barely impinges on my friendslists.

Couldn't stay asleep last night. No coughing. It might be that my plans for this morning are to attend the memorial service for the husband of one of the ladies at church who has always been very supportive of us.

The landlord where I am, where the rent is about two thirds of my monthly income now that I'm on my own, responded to my 30 days' notice by offering to knock off about twenty percent for six months. I told him I'd like to take three days to crunch numbers and stuff and think about it. It's sure tempting. I loathe moving and am likely if not certain to seize any chance to procrastinate, and as he pointed out to me it would mean not moving in winter. The drawback is, by June I'll certainly have run through what I now have in savings that I was trying to hold on to for moving expenses; but there are family who've offered to help out generally and with specifically that. The gripping hand is, this'll give me a chance before I move permanently to find out whether I can after all get by with paying slightly more for rent than I thought I could afford without a savings cushion, when that slightly more might make the difference between a rock bottom place and a place where a bachelor and two cats will actually fit.
