Two Seconds To Rub Together

So. The thing about not having two seconds to rub together since November is that I literally haven’t watched TV since then. Until last weekend. Which, in a way, was good. I had *ahem* acquired all the episodes of a summer show I was interested in and watched all but the season finale (ends on a cliff-hanger and haven’t decided whether or not I want to watch it now or wait until the start of next season to watch). Then a few other shows. And so forth.

I’m not just watching tv though I love to read, write and yeah I do watch copious amounts of tv series/films. But I’m a huge music person and my life pretty much revolves around it.

Birthdays Collide, January 7th 2017

I saw this and thought it was sort of cute. I actually didn’t know that Montréal was so much older than Canada.

The Globe and Mail’s Robert Everett-Green writes about how the conjunction of two anniversaries, Montréal’s 375th and Canada’s 150th, is set to give Montrealers a memorable year.

On May 18, 1642, a few dozen religious fanatics from France arrived at an island in the St. Lawrence River, held a celebratory mass and declared themselves home. Their goal was to build the New Jerusalem and convert the heathen.

Ville-Marie could have vanished like most utopian settlements, but it became Montreal. Many current residents may have little idea of the town’s original purpose, but lots of Montrealers have reason to be glad the missionaries didn’t reach their destination, say, a year earlier. If they had, Montreal would have lost a convenient overlap between significant anniversaries for their city and the country.

Canada 150 is also Montreal 375, as anyone who lives here can’t fail to know. In public discourse, the two fêtes are like paired runners in a three-legged race: One can’t appear without the other.

The convenience of this is that everyone in town, including federalists and sovereigntists, can feel festive without having to be specific about why. Also, since national celebrations inevitably bring on capital projects, Montreal can count on a double payout for every commemorative jackpot.

Each of the past two significant birthdays for country and city have yielded significant new building projects. For the 1992 celebrations, the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts built a new pavilion, the Pointe-à-Callière museum of archeology and history opened its doors near the Old Port and the Musée d’art contemporain moved to its current site at Place des Arts. The McCord Museum had a major expansion, the historic Bonsecours Market reopened and the Montreal Biodome was installed in the former Olympic velodrome. Nineteen sixty-seven, of course, was the year of Expo, the ne plus ultra of overlapping anniversary projects. Expo helped provide the spark for the construction of the Montreal Metro and much else. Most importantly, for a few weeks in the summer, it made Montreal the undisputed centre of Canada, whatever Ottawa and Toronto might think. It also stoked the fever dreams of then-mayor Jean Drapeau, who imagined putting on some kind of international jamboree every five years, continuing with a failed Olympic bid for 1972 – disastrously realized, from a financial point of view, four year later.

Progress So Far

At least I would call it progress.

  • Exercise twice per week: 100% success
  • Bike to work 50 times: Haven’t started yet, but that’s okay.
  • 20 push-ups every day: 100% success (I had to make up 3 days, but that is acceptable).
  • Try SUP yoga: Still too cold.
  • Get weight back under 140: Average is still 146.
  • Max out 401k and IRA: Successfully set and forgotten.
  • Travel to a state or country I’ve never been to: More plotting is required.
  • Finish knitting 4 pairs of adult socks: 1 done, 3 to go!
  • Finish 10 sewing projects: The first project is in progress and going well.

Well Happy Birthday To You!

I tend to be a bit of an introvert when it comes to parties and with mine coming up and the planning going along nicely I have started thinking about the whole topic. And I start to think about a list of things that, while short sorta gives you an idea of what I want to say.

Extroverts tend to be able to socialize at the drop of a hat. Introverts may need more of a prompt to do so. Consider party activities, like card or board games, something to watch as a group (Mystery Science Theatre 3000 is a standard), or a craft get-together. Make sure that anyone is welcome to just hang back and watch. A dinner party can also provide a helpful structure.

  • For some people who are shy or have social phobias, rather than merely being introverted, eating in public can be really scary. One way to get around this is to have multiple activities available, of which eating is only one. A mandatory “we are all eating together” activity may not work for some people/groups (while it will be great for others).
  • You may not have control of space layout but if possible, quiet spaces should be accessible (and facilities accessible from them) without going through the thickest part of a crowd.
  • Stated Activity. Catan, video games, geekery, etc. This provides a mental structure to work/socialize in. Pure socialization with people you don’t know well is awkward and I want to go hide so much of the time!
  • Similarly minded mix. If I’m the odd one out… I just kind of awkward penguin around for a bit and leave early. E.g., everyone but me doing the video game du jour.

The introvert will spend less time worrying pre-party, as well, if you tell the introvert whether they are expected to provide something for the party. If they are, tell them precisely what to bring and in what amount. Two boxes of donuts, one jug of beverage, a dozen packages of animal crackers, whatever. The feeling of active contribution without the emotional strain of “was it enough?” has often been very helpful to me at parties. And please make it very, very low price. “Hey, could you bring a bottle of Pepsi with you?” is NOT A BURDEN, it is a godsend.

Have places to retreat to, such as secluded reading nooks, a cloakroom, the kitchen, or similar. This can help free up the bathroom for people who need to use it for the intended function, if there are other places of (relative) solitude. Consider the need for multiple, two-or-three-person areas. Two or three can sit around in companionable silence that’s almost as good as being entirely alone (sometimes better), and a party with more than one introvert may need corners suitable for all of them.

Avoid the sorts of long games that if you start, you’re committed to an hour or more, unless you know that enough people to play them are actually into that. Though I have played a rousing game of Wink Murder with a group that was a lot of fun.

Introverts are often very good at conversation and interaction if you provide a no-stress way of determining compatible conversation topics and an easy way of getting people into the conversation. If you have matchmakers in your crowd, subtly exploit them or make them ambassadors that can bring people in or peel off of conversations to find wallflowers. In most unfamiliar situations, I tend to observe and not talk much, unless/until I can be reasonably certain people will want to listen to my input and that input will not cause social problems or anxiety. Having an ambassador there who can steer people to compatible conversations helps lots.

My sister knows all of this of course. Which is why she decided to make it a country cow boy/girl themed party. I am not sure about the invitations that he picked out. They are decent, that isn’t a problem, but they sort of remind me of vintage wedding invitations which strikes me a little as odd. But when I asked her she said that they were cute. Actually it was more: “WHAT?! You don’t like them? I thought that they were cute.” To which I said: “OH no, no, they are great. I just….” Blush.

I hope to help remedy this lack so please let me know what else am I missing?

Deathstalker Rebellion

The second of the Deathstalker series is divided into two major parts, each centered around one group of rebels, though other members of the extended cast may appear. In the first, Owen and Hazel head to Golgotha to attack the Imperial taxation office, crippling part of the empire and adding funds to the rebel accounts in one stroke. Also, they hook up with the rebel underground on Golgotha, teaming up with the Suzie Blues (a group apparently destined for a bad fate) and one Alexander Storm, an old friend of Jack Random. Who may not, in fact, be who he claims to be (Jack, that is).

Regardless of who he is, Random heads off to rescue slaves from the plant producing the new stardrive that the Empire is counting on. He takes Storm and Ruby Journey with him, and again they hook up with the local rebels, but in addition to the best troops House Wolfe can send against them and the top battle-jesuits of the Church of Jesus Christ, Warrior, the whole planet seems to be fighting them.

This planet is actually the biggest problem for the story. Its seasons are measured in days, which is an interesting concept, particularly when we learn that it was caused a century ago by a hacked weather satellite system. No one can fix it, which the story makes sense of, but we are never told why it isn’t shot down and replaced by a new one. Also, life on the planet has adjusted and now lives and dies by the seasons, just as it would if they were their natural selves. Problem is, there just hasn’t been enough time for anything to evolve to deal with those conditions. Even insects and bacteria would have died off in the first couple of winters, each coming less than a week after spring. The planet would be, at best, devoid of native life.

But, yeah, space opera; don’t sweat the science too much, if things slow down have a man with a blaster come through the airlock. Also, it’s Simon R. Green so he’ll probably have a blaster and a sword. Mindless fun. Mildly recommended, with a bonus recommendation for fans of Green’s other works.

One Of The Most Incredible Things I Have Learned This Year

Humans are among the very few animals that constitute a threat to elephants. Yet not all people are a danger — and elephants seem to know it. The giants have shown a remarkable ability to use sight and scent to distinguish between African ethnic groups that have a history of attacking them and groups that do not. Now a study reveals that they can even discern these differences from words spoken in the local tongues.

Elephant empathy is a beautiful thing. A great example is when two elephants are reunited after twenty years and are overjoyed to see one another.
