Ivan has never liked being held. But today, twice, for long periods of time like an hour or so, he has laid (lain?) in my lap, being petted. Purring most of it.

It is not fair. He is not even 15 yet.

I am very not caught up on journals.

(Today is also not very productive. I woke up from annoying dreams (that I have forgotten by now), and went downstairs to make sure Ivan had not trapped himself in the basement. He hadn't, but he wanted feeding, etc. So I am short on sleep. And typing around an Ivan.)

Perhaps at some point tomorrow, the GURPS submission will be looked at. Please think good thoughts for it. Thank you.

Zoloft taper time! The plan:

Day 0 (today): 12.5 mg/day (the dosage I've been on for the last 18 months)
Days 1-14: 6.25 mg/day
Days 15-28: alternate 6.25 mg/day and 0 mg/day
Day 29: fully discontinue

The last time I went off Zoloft I dropped it cold turkey because I was at much too high a dose for me and it was making me suicidal, manic, and possibly psychotic. (As indicated above, my therapeutic dose is below most people's starting dose, and my psychiatrist at the time had no idea how to dose someone like me.) I don't recall experiencing any adverse effects from the abrupt stop, but I wasn't really paying much attention at the time, and I'm not sure I would have noticed anything unless it was worse than the effects of the Zoloft itself. That said, I don't expect to have any problems, especially since I'm tapering this gradually.

I wasn't expecting to be able to cut my half-pills in half again, but J keeps our kitchen knives nice and sharp, so that makes life easier. I could possibly cut them even smaller but I think that's probably unnecessary.

I cannot wait to be off this stuff. Cannot. Wait.

Usual rules for comments about medical stuff: no advice unless I specifically ask (which I'm not) or you think I'm about to inadvertently harm myself.

I’m delighted to have four of my portraits at the Commonwealth Club in San Francisco.  I’ll be there for the artist’s walk-through at the opening with other artists and the curator Pam Penniston to talk about them.

The exhibition is at the gallery of the Commonwealth Club in downtown San Francisco. The Commonwealth Club and its Arts Member-Led Forum hosts many notable artists in the gallery of its headquarters in downtown San Francisco.

Photos include this photo of writer and father of marvelous twins Marlo Gayle from Familiar Men: A Book of Nudes. He wrote a superb essay on masculinity for the book and has published a number of erotica stories.

The Queer Cultural Center looks at the art that comes from LGBT artists as a foundation on which to build our community – our common wealth and direction. It is often ahead of the political or social movements in sensing what things are significant – and sometimes it’s just fun. This exhibit looks at diversity in our queer community, from the artists themselves to their chosen disciplines; we are showcasing woven and embroidered fabric, photography, painting, drawing and even a small installation.

..

Hagiwara Hiroko

This photo is of Hiroko Hagiwara, a dean and professor at Osaka Prefecture University. She is a feminist scholar and activist who was one of my primary collaborators on my Women of Japan project.

The other two photographs are of Samuel R Delany and Tee Corinne.

The photograph of my friend Tee was taken shortly before her death in 2006. Tee was a groundbreaking Lesbian erotic artist whose works included The Cunt Coloring Book, her solarized erotic photographs of lesbians, and her remarkable final project Scars, Stoma, Ostomy Bag, Portacath: Picturing Cancer In Our Lives.

Samuel R Delany’s photograph is from Familiar Men: A Book of Nudes. From his earliest books as a science fiction writer, his work included issues of sexuality, ethnicity, race and gender, including polyamorous love. He brought queerness into the future.

..

Tickets (click here) are free.  (I’d told that even if just the waiting list is left you should be able to register there and be able to come to the event without problem.).

I was in the The National Queer Arts Festival exhibition in May at the SomARTS gallery, which was also curated by the Queer Cultural Center. It was was thoughtful and exciting work and the curatorial walk-through was great.  I’m anticipating that it will be equally fine for this exhibit.

Artists include Rudy Lemcke, Lenore Chinn, Bren Ahearn, Indira Allegra, Preston Gannaway, and curator Pamela Peniston in an examination of their work and a discussion of LBGT art.

The opening is Tuesday, July 29th at the Commonwealth Club Gallery (595 Market Street San Francisco).  The reception is from 5 to 6PM and the walk-through starts about 6PM.

I’m excited about being there.

It seems certain that since Haikyū!! has me fired up that I will need to attend at least one volleyball game at my alma mater this fall. I love going to games anyway; I just have to make the time, somehow. The Schedule Has Been Announced, so I should be able to make plans well in advance.

iPad for sale

Irene made the switch to an iPad mini, so we're looking to sell her old iPad.

It's a 4th generation black 32gb iPad with retina display and lightning port. It has wi-fi, but is not the cellular-enabled type. More specs here on Amazon.

It's in great condition except for the screen, which is cracked, and one roughed-up corner. It has one of those plastic film screen protectors on it so it's still usable even with the cracked screen (she's been using it like this for months), but it is probably best to replace the screen.

Pics )

There's also a Logitech keyboard/cover. It snaps on as a cover and can be removed to use with the iPad like a notebook.


I'm looking to get $250 for both the iPad and the cover, shipping within the US included. Please comment, DM, or email me at kyuuketsukirui@gmail.com if you're interested.

We're back to watching Breaking Bad -- S4 x 11 at this moment, our third one tonight.

I am seriously all a-flail. I just -- cascading awful decisions for four seasons now and I am still boggling.

Also I have a distressing fondness for some of these appallingly morally ambiguous characters. Not sure what that says about me.

Also also, the show is so fucking pretty that I really want to vid it. And I'd vid it to Calexico, too. I'm just not sure I have the spoons to rewatch all of this gruesome and devastating stuff.

I so do not have the appropriate icon for this. *wry grin*

I have my scanner out tonight.

I have also put all of the sheet music I own* into a spreadsheet, so here is your limited-time offer: until I go to sleep tonight, anybody who wants can request one song off that list and I will scan it for them. Enjoy!

Sheet Music Index

I suggest using full-text search if you want to find a certain song, there's almost 4000 entries in the list. It's heavily skewed toward old standards/broadway and pop/folk music from 1979 and before, because that's what you get when you shop at yard sales for it. Highlights include: a bunch of "buy war bonds!" sheet music from the early '40s, the complete Tom Lehrer collection, Donald Swann's settings of the songs of Tolkien.

...no I am not good enough to play most of this. I am a ridiculous person.

* that's not actually all of it, I haven't put in some of the fake books or the any of the hymnal collection yet. or any of the stuff printed off the internet. or most of the stuff in the lesson books, or most of the clarinet/sax/flute/organ music. but it's most of it.
