Sitting across the bar, staring right at her prey
It's going well so far, she's gonna get her way

Here, have some Mashrou' Leila.

And some background, and the translated lyrics.

"As the band explains, the women in the video are 'styled to over-articulate their ethnic background, in a manner more typically employed by Western media to victimize them. This seeks to disturb the dominant global narrative of hyper-secularized (white) feminism, which increasingly positions itself as incompatible with Islam and the Arab world, celebrating the various modalities of Middle Eastern feminism.'"

Jordan authorities like to make a fuss when they're trying to perform. It's a band most of my queer and/or liberal friends from the Middle East love. I personally don't actively listen to it, except for a few songs, but I like to check the news every once in a while, to see what they're up to.

1. Dad had spine surgery on Monday. He's got rods from L4 to S1 now. He's doing well.

2. Sunday I indulged the stereotype and polished silver. Did mom's everyday teaspoons and the serving pieces out the china cabinet. Might do the place settings this afternoon.

3. Considering doing another round of PT. Not sure if I can be sent for the all of me. If I had to choose something it'd be my shoulders and wrists.

Ugh. Migraine related desperation led me to take a pain pill that I know I react badly to. Now I have the minor urge to scratch off all my skin. The insides of my eyelids itch. Haven't broken out into hives so far, but that's a possibility. Took benadryl with it, but so far it hasn't helped (or maybe it has and that's why no hives).

Good side the migraine has died down enough I'll probably sleep tonight.

Why bodies, seriously.

1. Mom has photos for sale in a local shop. The shop owner made requests for particular kinds of images. There was interest expressed in carrying other things we may do with the pictures like make note cards or necklaces or magnets.

2. I just placed an order for 2 dolls I've been wanting for a while. It's a larger size than I currently have. I feel confident that this won't be a problem since there are currently 4 dolls in SD size I want and Twigling makes 3 of them. (Well, 2 dolls and a head.) I'm getting an Elbe and a Gamine both in vivid skin. Between them I'll have a B bust, C bust, short hip, long hip, short legs, long legs, relaxed hands, and original hands. if anyone is curious but not already into BJD.

3. I gave notice at my job on Wednesday. My last day is July 28th. I cited health as my reason for leaving. I debated trying to work something out with accommodations, but frankly there isn't enough room behind the new registers to put a stool to sit on.

1. Tomorrow I go and give notice at my job. I don't have a new one. I just physically can no longer do the current one. Or won't after the 28th when kids camp is over and I'm back on register for 4-5 hours at a time.

2. I would love to know what I've done to my left shoulder. Right shoulder being angry and everything around the shoulder blade clenched up is terrible and annoying but I'm used to it. This knot on the edge of the left shoulder blade that shoots pain everywhere periodically is not okay. This migraine isn't helping.

3. Our A/C froze over last night. It still hasn't unfrozen all the way. Sleeping tonight is going to be interesting. We've turned the blower back on and it's cooler because the air is moving over the ice. I've been hanging out in my desk chair with an icepack (mostly on the shoulder situation). Fingers crossed the stupid thing will defrost tomorrow.

3a. I'd go over to mom's tomorrow, but they won't have power all day because several utility poles in the neighborhood need to be replaced.

3b. I'm whining but it hasn't gotten out of the 80s all day with the various fans going. Three cheers for mid-century architecture and my grandfather's thing for courtyards.
