I depose that the week in which it was revealed that Charles Dickens tried to get his (sane but inconvenient) wife committed to a lunatic asylum is not the week to hymn 'family life [as] the most successful form of social security the world has ever known'.

The guy is getting his head handed to him fairly comprehensively on Twitter, but really. The ignorance.

Quite apart from the whole noxious gender aspect - I think the response would have been rather different had it been a middle-aged son as carer for an elderly mother, which is not unknown, in fact the situation of one of my cousins, who had his own health problems at the time.

Social welfare systems are not some mimsy-whimsy snowflakey thing that we've only just discovered and put in place, some form of social welfare has been around in this country since the early modern period at least.

And people weren't necessarily cherishing their Olds in the family home: they were going to the parish authorities and asking to have them put in the workhouse. In particular, I may add, if the Olds were fathers/fathers-in-law, because I recall from Book I Reviewed Some Considerable While Ago (I think it was Wally Seccombe, Weathering the Storm: Working-Class Families from the Industrial Revolution to the Fertility Decline, 1995, but wouldn't entirely swear to it) because aged women could still be useful around the house, doing a little light childminding or domestic tasks, whereas the men were pretty much just a burden.

Plus all the various philanthropic provisions that were put in place, so that people weren't entirely dependent on their families, supposing they had a family. E.g., I remark, the Foundling Hospital, set up by Jonas Hanway after seeing so many infants abandoned by unwed mothers cast out by their families (such successful. so social welfare. much security.).

No tags writers were revealed so I can say that I wrote On Brooding Wings which is Frank/Mikey where Frank is a vegetarian vampire who's afraid to admit what he is and in the process makes himself sick. I have to admit, I really like how this turned out. Writing Frank/Mikey roomie days just feels so comfortable to me, and working out how to add a vampire to the mix was fun. Though I did end up debating warnings with themoononastick due to mentions of vomiting and an alluded to eating disorder.

It turns out [personal profile] shadowhive wrote for my prompt, which made me laugh as he's pretty much kept me in fic lately, which is pretty awesome. The story is also Frank/Mikey, with a very excellent Ray involved, and can be read here. I do recommend it.

In fact, I recommend the whole collection. I've just read all the stories today and there's not a bad one there. So a big thumbs up to everyone involved with the challenge.

In other news, our staycation came to a premature end as James came down with a cold, so our planned trip to Whitby today didn't happen, and tomorrow he's taking our nephew to the cinema. But, it's been a good week and we've done fun stuff so I can't be sad it's over. Plus, the weather is lovely so tomorrow while he's out I'm going to go start tidying the garden and wash down the greenhouse.

Also, my MiL came home yesterday. Whether she's ready I'm not 100% sure because after we picked her up and drove her home it took half an hour for her to get from the car into the house, which was a distance of all a few feet. But as it included two steps and her walker and wheelchair are wide ones that wouldn't fit down the passage/doors it took time and lots of rests. But, she is home, has adaptation put into place that should help, and hopefully will be much more comfortable regaining her strength in her own surroundings.

My therapist doesn't like my relationship with Hermes. Whenever I mention Him, she says He drains my energy because He is associated with death - being the one that takes the souls to Hades.

While I do feel that there is an imbalance in this relationship because I always feel very tired whenever I do something to honor Him, I don't feel that I should just leave Him behind. He is a god, I can't just turn my back on Him; that's unthinkable.

The thing is, I don't see Him as "death-y" as my therapist says. I see Him as sort of a savior, because I've been in his hands so many times, and yet He didn't take me to Hades. It's like He is telling me to keep on living. I'm not sure why, but I can't think of another reason as to why He keeps pushing me back into my body whenever I'm about to die (this has happened a few times already; four than I can count).

I do, however, need to balance my relationship with Him a little.

WIP Preview

(Originally posted at https://wp.me/p2sEtx-Fs)

I’ve gotten into papercraft models. One thing I want to do though is to customize each model as well as building whatever designs I have (I’ve got more than 200 although I may not do them all)


Here’s the wip of my first custom along with the two I downloaded


Two paper models of velocirapters or tyrannosaurs standing over the printed out modified template


Once I’ve got it finalized I’ll have the template here and on my DeviantArt. Since I’m getting back into Digimon, it’ll be ExTyrannomon the plushie version of my favorite dino-digimon.

D.O.P.-T.

It was forecast to be nasty cold last night, and it may have been, but when I emerged after a night of madly unpacking boxes, labeling things up, and somehow fitting them on the walls, it was beautifully sunny and not even chilly. Ms Whiskers was waiting for me on the porch, a great relief; I hadn't seen her in several days and the catfood had been eaten unusually messily for a while, so I was worried she'd frozen or been captured and carted off to some county shelter; and then a scruffy little grey dog appeared at the corner of the yard, and shortly afterwards, huffing and puffing on the other side of the road, a chubby kid. Kid crossed road, dog took off along the sidewalk, kid resignedly puffed after it. I hope he eventually recaptured his dog. Ms Whiskers was of course ensconced in the roots of the rose bush like Níðhǫggr.

It's official; I have gone crazy. The tedium at work has driven me around the bend. Before you get too concerned, let me explain. I don't consider myself a "little" but I definitely have some child like tendencies at times. Most frequently these appear when I'm bored or stressed, and I've been bored a lot at work lately. Now, even at the best of times, I have a habit of talking to myself. It just so happens that when I'm bored I'm a lot less likely to use English and just make sounds instead; mostly some variation of "Aaaa". Gs are fun to throw in too, like "Naga" or "Whaga".

The bit that leads to me claiming insanity: I have found myself actually making words for this "non-language". It is acquiring more "words" as opposed to just strings of "ah-aaah-ah"s. I even gave it a name. I think I need to make myself some flashcards so I can practice my French and Polish at work instead of messing around with what amounts to a cranky childs vocalizations.

*bemused head shake* My brain some days...

A friend and I started talking about our first media crushes. And mine, stemming from the time I was about four or five, was Morticia Addams, as Carolyn Jones played her in The Addams Family. Well, I loved the show as a whole, but for me, Morticia was the epitome of beauty, and she was also so nice and loving. I wanted to be her when I grew up, and though I never had the guts to colour my hair black, I was certainly Morticia aesthetics I was going for when I was in my late teens/early twenties.

Good morning!

Topic of the week
Places you've enjoyed going (near where you live, longer travel, everything in between.)

What I've been up to
I am running around getting ready for a quick and weirdly timed work trip (flying very early Saturday morning, getting back very late Monday night, the actual work stuff is Saturday evening through noonish Monday).

So I'm posting this and then going to the laundromat, as one does.

Another lovely Springlike day, so we decided to get the boots on and go for a walk.

We went out into the countryside via Limekiln Lane upon which stands this gate:

It has been a Week and I'm not sure how we got to but here we are. I don't have a lot to say and am still kind of drained, so don't mind me. Sorry I don't have more in me today but I am happy we are all still here.
