    Last night at Mom's place, and we lost power around 2 am. After a little while of power not coming back, I shuffled stuff out to the RV during the lulls in the rain so that Amy could sleep out there where there's power for her CPAP machine. Around 3:30ish, about 5 minutes after getting her all settled, the power came back on, of course.

    Still haven't been able to get back to sleep, and it's 6 now.

    I have a truly ridiculous amount of squee over the fact that Rainbow Dash defending Fluttershy's honor (in exactly those words) is now canon.

    On the looming shutdown
    This pretty much sums up my opinion.

    I aten't dead.
    Just...either it's short enough to drop on Twitter or it's not stuff I want to write publicly, lately.

    I want to write.

    I want to draw.

    I want to play music.

    I feel like my internal spring of energy for such things is flowing as strong as ever, but instead of flowing into this nice deep basin for catching, it's spewing out into a drought-stricken desert and just making mud and maybe a puddle or two.

    And to take the analogy way too far, my work is the herd of animals laying in the mud keeping cool and hydrated. So I suppose my spring is being useful but...yeah.

    Amy pointed out something interesting yesterday about me. Probably my number one struggle with relationships is that I need to feel needed and useful, but not used, and I am not very good at finding or maintaining that balance myself. I get frustrated if things consistently sit too far in either direction, and it's a boundary I am not good at maintaining with people I am truly close to.

    Quick break in the hotel room in Grand Rapids, and what do I do? Connect to the wireless network and check Twitter, LJ and DW...

    All told, the trip has had way too many disasters, but they have all eventually been resolved, at least. I would like a less disastery vacation some day, but I suppose I shouldn't complain, as I am at least getting a vacation.

    Streaks in my hair
    A couple of pictures of the new hair coloring (and recent cut). It came out subtler than I originally intended, but I like it.

    I haven't forgotten my promise to post pictures. I either need to get the ones Joel took or I need to grab the ones I took using Amy's camera and upload them, and I haven't done either yet.

    Interim update: three windows shattered, five more with frames broken so they'll have to be replaced even though the glass survived, lots of windowscreens trashed, a window air conditioner trashed, skylights trashed, roof will have to be replaced. We have a $4000 hail deductible on the house. We'll have to figure out whether we want to try to pay the incremental cost of any upgrades we could do as long as we have to replace a bunch of stuff.

    The Taurus is totaled, though we'll be buying it back since it's just cosmetic damage. We'll be getting around $4000 for it net, so that pretty much covers our deductible on the house. The Honda took approximately $7500 in damage. The trailer hasn't been evaluated yet but I suspect it's totaled as well.

    So we had a close encounter with a tornado a couple of hours ago. Shattered windows but no injuries other than the hailstone that hit Bill in the ear and the little glass shard I stuck myself with cleaning up a bit.

    Still no power, posting from my phone. Should have some impressive photos in the morning...

    Help me, VURD
    So for a game I'm playing, I need a phrase in Japanese (or, frankly, in bad wannabe Japanese). I'm wanting an overly-polite "Excuse me, Secretkeeper, please hear our prayers," sort of statement. The obvious bits are something like "Gomen nasai Secretkeeper-sama, ?? ?? kudasai," but I'm not sure what the ?? ?? should be.

    This is an spell invocation for a cleric of Hello Kitty, so weeabooness is totally in-character, if that matters any.

    ETA: Looks like I had anonymous and OpenID comments turned off. Whups. I think it's fixed now.

    ETA2: Here's what I have so far, in romaji: Gomennasai Secretkeeper-sama watashitachi no inori o kikite kudasai

    Why do I read transfeminist writings? It just ends up pissing me off. Especially when it's good.

    Just testing the crossposter. Nothing to see here, these are not the posts you're looking for, move along.

    Yes, this is the same Ysabel as over on LiveJournal.

    Staking out a place. I'm still not sure what I'm going to do right now, whether I'm going to split across both or what. We'll see.

    Here's a great essay in reaction to the YouTube video of anti-abortion protesters reacting to being asked what the penalty for getting an illegal abortion should be.

    The insight that these people are not getting that crime != sin is, IMHO, a significant one.

    The Only Debate on Intelligent Design that is Worthy of its Subject.

    I've so wanted to do exactly this, after exhausting myself trying to be reasonable.
