Happy housiversary: my housemate and I have been living together for a year as of today in our ridiculous flat with our ridiculous lives, and she just took the time to spend five minutes curled up on me on my sofa catching up before running out the door again. It is pretty great.


I just sent myself an e-mail containing the following:

I am having feelings about access to speech.


I wrote two things for Yuletide this year: At the going down of the sun, in the Vorkosiverse, an oral biography/history of Olivia Vorbarra Vorkosigan's life and how she got involved with Piotr anyway; and a treat in the Mechsverse, specifically about the Sirens in Ulysses Dies At Dawn: You'll Reign Supreme. Two things to note: (1) I now want to write Ulysses-fic about the Furies; (2) to my utter bafflement, the Vorkosigan fic has immediately become the most liked thing I've ever written??? Which I suppose is a little reassuring given that I wasn't convinced I'd done a terribly good job of it.


I have discovered that I can reliably do French and Dutch braids tolerably neatly on myself. This is excellent because it means that my hair is less of a disaster when I go a week without brushing it, which makes Dealing With It less intimidating; it's also excellent for reasons including "it does a better job of keeping my hair off my face" and "people's reactions are really funny".


I am poking at my brain quite hard and will post about it soon.

Hell yeah.

One of my biggest ones is "I have access to speech, but the database query you just made would require me to process 1TB of compressed data in my brain using an algorithm I haven't developed before, and I'm too busy trying to figure out how I would go about answering that to remember (or come up with) the appropriate script for explaining why I don't have an answer for you off the top of my head, and while I pause to try to retrieve that you got worried that I wasn't replying, so you repeated the query phrased a different way, and now I have to process that while trying to answer the first question (and also feel all guilty and defensive about not just knowing the answer to a personal question someone asked) and also retrieve the error message for why I can't answer it yet, and... buf..fer...ing..."

I am poking at my brain quite hard and will post about it soon.

Oh, that's really interesting, and making me take another look at the instances where I have difficulty communicating.

At the going down of the sun, in the Vorkosiverse, an oral biography/history of Olivia Vorbarra Vorkosigan's life and how she got involved with Piotr anyway

Just wow!

Do try not to do it so hard you get bits stuck under your nails ;)
