Our shapes are blurring under miracles of snow

I am sick again! I really resent it! [personal profile] spatch started coughing and then I started coughing and then it hurt too much to swallow all night. I was really looking forward to being able to sing without congestion again. Maybe it will be a bug of brief duration. I had an immune system once that mostly attacked things that weren't me.

I dreamed I went to see a movie set during the American Revolution and spent most of it internally screaming because there were ballistae at the Siege of Boston and the field of battle was the contemporary landfill of Dorchester Heights as opposed to the eighteenth-century peninsula. This must be how medievalists feel all the time.

Festivids has generated a magnificent, as yet anonymous vid for Yoon Ha Lee's Ninefox Gambit (2016), called simply "Ninefox." It's a wonderful visual poem of the novel, complete with geese and green onions and faction symbolism and jeng-zhai. I want to see some of the source media and I want to see a good adaptation of these books. I kind of fancast Jedao once already.

I didn't know Albania had a Jewish museum before [personal profile] shewhomust linked about it. I like knowing.

Today is for laundry and groceries, I think.

I liked it a lot, which is not my usual!

I am not a visual media person any more at all, and the other day someone recced a couple of Magicians vids and I loved those books but haven't seen the show and...the vids did not make me regret that choice. Basically I expect visual media about stories I like to make me enjoy those stories less, not more. This did not!

I am fighting a headache which is part stress and part failure-to-eat-things (these...aren't disconnected phenomena) so I sympathize.

I am sick again! I really resent it!

Being sick again is ridiculous and resenting it is ENTIRELY REASONABLE. >.< May this one be fleeting.

That vid is breathtakingly good.

I hope you feel well soon!

Heh, I think most of us grow thick skin for it? Also, I'm pretty sure that there are more and worse violations of classical stuff....
