ছ   My dad's arriving on Wednesday, hopefully his almost complete lack of English won't hinder him in getting from Edinburgh to Glasgow (fucking Ryanair, as if it wasn't crappy enough, cancelled the Glasgow-Girona route and now there's only Barcelona-Edinburgh left).

ছ   Had a good time at the dragking workshop, although I don’t make a pretty boy AT ALL. One day I’ve got to go out dressed like that.boy )

ছ   Thing is, I got a migraine that day and I just didn’t feel like having my hair tied back anymore or being out at all. This month my headaches have skyrocketed but I just went to see my new GP (nice lady!) and she doubled my preventive meds dosage, with that I should be right as rain (or right even with all the fucking rain, since
humidity can’t be helping the problem).

ছ   I have also pictures of fencing, some are up in facebook but for your edification....

ছ   Misfits season 3 has started! As has Merlin BBC season 4, although I have not watched anything. Back to Misfits. I'm very taken with new!guys tattoos. Him, not so much, unless he turns out to be gay <.< Curtis new power boggles the brain, girl!Curtis is also really cute. I totally want him to explore his sexuality! Like, lesbian Curtis would be greaaaaaaat (especially since apparently he needs to learn what to do with the lady parts). Watched episode 2: BASICALLY EVERYTHING I COULD WANT. Well, except the drugging and almost rape, that upset me a lot. I was quite confused by how untraumatized Curtis was by the whole incident. I also didn't like that he turned into a man to punch the guy's lights out, what? a girl can't punch? Finding a guy about to stick his cock into you while you're laying half-drugged is not the same as having someone touch your ass or look at your chest, it's like whoever wrote it didn't realise this and it was a bit offensive.

Also, why are, like, 60 % of Misfits' scenes shot in toilets? Is it a fetish or are they just cheap? I wouldn't mind as much if people weren't peeing most of the time. I think they should restrict liquids in that set because they can't possibly need to go that much. This is also the only show where a guy asks another guy to go for a beer after noticing his bandaged hand (which is holding his cock at the time) and neither of them seems to be uncomfortable about it. They are too worried about superheroing and secret identities instead. Ok, I wrote that and in the next scene new!guy came in and totally had the same thought as me: VERY GAY. Why is new!guy so much like Nathan? It only showcases how he *isn't* Nathan. There are other personalities besides the five they've got, couldn't they have gone for something else? WOW. The longing gaze after Barry... err... Simon is even worse. No, wait, the drawing! Or maybe the "Would you like to be my best friend?". The scene where Peter leaves in a funk because Simon chose Alisha over him? I don't! It's all terrible!

The thing about the twins reminded me of Outnumbered.

The awesome tattoos in question (+ an extra random one):

- ₪ -  Mijal will be here tomorrow, I'm still dealing with the consequences of her idiocy (she booked a flight for Edinburgh instead of Glasgow, which she had to do on the flight back. And a flight for 11 at night on top of that. She will make the last bus to Glasgow by the skin of her teeth). She's bringing me stuff like nesquik (not quite chocolate but...) and coffee and I hope to foist her on Isa so they can go be girly together a lot.

- ₪ - English vocabulary score: 28,900. I'm like 9 years ahead of the curve. Go do it and report back! It's fun :) I plan to take it again later to see if I'm improving.

- ₪ - New gorgeous blanket, well, one of them.

I first tried to get teal

and then I dark blue-violet
but fate had it that they didn't have doubles (my bed is a double, since I was a little girl sleepping in my single aunt's double bed I knew this would be so when I lived on my own). I will report on it's warmth but it's soft like it's made of kittens.

* Apparently they thought it would look cooler without the commas, with them it's The Way, The Truth, The Life and it's my university's motto. To be fair, there were no commas in Latin, in fact, there were no spaces between words, still, I like my reading better and I do read English lit, after all.

Today I went to Poundland and there was this cashier whose gender I couldn't determine. It disconcerted me to the point where I couldn't quite ask the question I meant to till I glanced down at his name tag ("Jason", had it been "Taylor" I would have been in trouble). I seriously didn't know how to interact with someone whose gender I didn't know, I knew gender was one of the traits that influenced social interactions but I didn't expect to be that stumped. I have never experienced anything like it, since in the internet everybody is, by default, female. I'm not very sure what to do about it, either, I try to make up for my total lack of social skills by being as street smart as I can, being super polite to everybody, nodding along to their endless directions and explanations, which with men often feels a bit like flirting or being girlish (Izabela claims men never make her feel like a girl and I have no proof it's them making me feel that my perfectly normal politeness and good humor are flirtatious but it feels like they take it that way and so I become conscious it might be taken that way, while women, if they are nice, react in an understanding, I-get-what-you-mean way that makes our interactions friendly instead). The very few women who have reacted the way men usually do, of course, also turn the interaction flirtatious for me, I guess I'm not very good at all this street smart business if I just lose control of any interaction I engage in but it's like they are talking in a language I understand and can replicate but whose nuances I don't really grasp well enough to manipulate. Sometimes, like when I did that theater audition for a role in Much Ado About Nothing and was asked to read my monologue flirtatiously and totally knocked it off the field, I feel like I'm finally getting it but I think it's more like I'm close enough to know what I don't know (very socratic, huh?), I don't even really know if I managed to do it flirtatiously or if my attempt was amusing in some other manner (the "judges" were enthusiastically approving) but it made me feel awesome. Which is basically the point of acting for me, it's a very empowering experience in the sense that, without any real risks, I can try out social-acting techniques, see if I can flirt, or cry or whatever. That is also the attraction of lying, can I do it?

I also tried to read "The Marriage Plot" (just a peak! I have promised I won't read it till I have finished the four Austen novels I have left) and I realised how much easier it is to enjoy each word when listening, I'm just so eager to know what happens that I skim ahead and then I feel bad. I suppose that's what rereading is for, really. It might be easier to avoid when reading at leisure at home and not in a bookshop one has to leave asap, too.

I am glad it cannot happen twice, the fever of first love. For it is a fever, and a burden, too, whatever the poets may say. They are not brave, the days when we are twenty-one. They are full of little cowardices, little fears without foundation, and one is so easily bruised, so swiftly wounded, one falls to the first barbed word. Today, wrapped in the complacent armour of approaching middle age, the infinitesimal pricks of day by day brush one lightly and are soon forgotten, but then - how a careless word would linger, becoming a fiery stigma, and how a look, a glance over a shoulder, branded themselves as things eternal. A denial heralded the thrice crowing of a cock, and an insincerity was like the kiss of Judas. The adult mind can lie with untroubled conscience and a gay composure, but in those days even a small deception scoured the tongue, lashing one against the stake itself.
