Okay, I've at least found a stopgap measure that will help with those vet bills that I mentioned in my last post. My apartment complex just announced that they're now offering the ability to split rent into two payments, one at the beginning of the month and one in the middle of the month, which will at least help a little.

It's not quite robbing Peter to pay Paul, so that's something at least. Almost all of my bills are due at the very beginning of each month, so by only having to pay half my rent at that same time, I'll have a bit more in my checking account for emergencies. Plus I'll have more time to try and work on commissions/sell things/etc. if unexpected situations come up. There is an additional fee that I'll have to pay, but it's worth it to know that I won't have to worry about my checking account becoming overdrawn.

The joy of living paycheck to paycheck: you have to pay extra fees, spending even more money, to stay afloat. Still, I'll definitely take it over having a panic attack because I can't think of how to pay bills.

I have found a rabies clinic where I can get the cats' shots without having to pay for a full exam like their regular vet insists on doing, but it's going to involve a decent-length trip via Lyft so it's still going to be more expensive than I'd planned. Not nearly as bad as it could have been, though, so I'll take it. Although getting up at the crack of dawn on Sunday morning isn't going to be all that fun.

We will soon be accepting submissions of previously unposted fanfic, fanart, and more for our inaugural FanWorks con zine! Every attending and digital FanWorks membership comes with access to our digital zine – it’s a great way to get to know the work of new writers and artists and share your own creations! There is no limit on fandom, theme, or style.

The zine’s deadline is June 30th. You do not have to be registered for the con to submit to the zine, although if we run short of space, priority goes to attending and digital members. You can find the complete submission guidelines here: FanWorks Zine.

You can submit anything you want to the zine provided it fits the submission guidelines, but if you’re not sure where to start, you may want to consider this year’s FanWorks Variations theme of “Ignite” -- the zine will have a section devoted solely to all the different interpretations of ignition!

Submissions will officially open on the website soon, once we have everything up and running behind the scenes. We’ll post an announcement when we’re ready for you to upload your fanworks! In the meantime, please let us know if you have any questions by emailing fanworkszine@gmail.com.

And wish to remain so!

But just to double check - as I understand it, there are no post- or mid-credits scenes. Which I think is a wise choice given the movie's runtime of something like 3 hours.

Does anyone have any different information? Because otherwise, I'm just gonna leave when credits roll. To go to the bathroom, probably. And I don't plan to return.

1. Connecting with a cousin who is dying. We had a beautiful chat on FB messenger. I'm grieving her departure from this life (timeline unknown, as usual), and am also feeling grateful for the connection.

2. I walked 10,000 steps at my standing desk today. Five miles, y'all. Haven't done that in... probably years? It's already worth every penny I spent on the wall-mounted monitor omg.

3. I refilled the bird feeder -- I've seen glorious yellow goldfinches there today, and also female cardinals with their wash of red. I put a little sock full of goldfinch seed in the burning bush, also, and we'll see if it attracts more.

4. Now I have a warm purring cat on my lap, gnawing happily on my belt loops as is his wont. Oh wait, he went to go sit by a window and watch birdfeeder tv instead. But he was on my lap for a minute, and it was cozy.

5. Today when I go to lunch with [personal profile] woobat I will carry a chartreuse-green purse that was my mom's. It matches the baby leaves on the trees.

Thanos #1

"I'm a sucker for a smart girl and the big angry guy who becomes her father figure. When I put some thought into what Thanos and Gamora's early relationship would have been like in an interpersonal sense, not the thousand-yard-overview we get in the old books, I go back to 'True Grit.' Or I think of team-ups like Sandor Clegane and Arya Stark from 'Game of Thrones,' you know? These classic duos where nothing threatens the big bad guy -- except for a kid. And it's not because kids are cute and vulnerable, it's because they're honest. And they don't have a full understanding of the world around them yet, so they're somewhat unaware of nuance and danger. And Gamora's even more dangerous than a regular child -- because Thanos has taken everything from her. She's got nothing to lose. And they share a moment in the first issue that I won't spoil here -- that answers the question: why her? Why Gamora?" -- Tini Howard

so i clicked on a thing on tumblr in a sort of "why the hell not" gesture and now I have an actual invite (non-transferable, they want govt ID, good thing I used my wallet name email) to a She-ra screening at Dreamworks in two days but you know, just me, not me and a friend, even if I had friends who weren't like, at work on a Thursday.

I don't know how to go alone to fannish/promotional events, I will now have an existential crisis about this purely optional thing I signed up for.

some books I'm looking forward to

Cat Sebastian's A Little Light Mischief and Olivia Waite's The Lady's Guide to Celestial Mechanics look lovely! I also can't wait for KJ Charles' Proper English! *pokes internet in search of a way to preorder it*

(and I love that I keep finding out about new historical f/f romances)

Well, fuck. Both Garrus and Percy are due to have their licenses renewed, which means I have to get their rabies shots updated. As in, it's required by law, so it has to happen. Which isn't cheap but isn't... too expensive either.

Except the vet refuses to give them the rabies shots without giving them a full check-up first, due to them both having health issues. Which is significantly more expensive than I was planning for, budget-wise.

If, uh, anyone wants to pass along the link to my GoFundMe, I would greatly appreciate it?

I was reminded in conversation over episode 2 that I forgot all about the show version of Daenerys' visions in the House of the Undying, which are undoubtedly important to where the show is going.

Dany's visions and what they could mean for the remaining four episodes )
