They canceled Basel Fasnacht (carnival) bc of the corona virus.

You have no idea how big of a deal this is - we call it the three most beautiful days of the year, and last time they canceled it was in 1986 after an accident in a chemical plant. Even people who're not into it are at a complete loss, as most businesses would be closed. So no one knows how this will play out, esp. bc "FasnΓ€chtler" are a stubborn sort. :)

Shuffle surprise: I forgot how much I like Tori Amos. Should really check out what she's been releasing in the last few years.

Captain Marvel | Higher (The Score), by Elvenarcher3

A kick-ass celebration of Carol in the Captain Marvel movie.


I'm taking part i Fandom For Australia, if anyone is interested in fic, vid or gifs from me:

So. Not dead. Actually doing pretty well. Still deep in Untamed fandom. However, right now I'm actually finally watching ep 34 of Guardian. Recommended it to an Untamed fan and it made me miss it.

If I remember correctly I have a few more "safe" episodes, and I really want to see the time travel for myself. But wow, I forgot how distractingly obvious the dubbing is at times.

Motherforking Good Place finale. Who the hell thought it was okay to make me cry almost from start to finish.

Oooh, the Agoojie of the West African kingdom of Dahomey are fascinating - they were crack female warriors, guarding the king (and serving as enforcers/tax collectors). I wonder if that's where the Dora Milaje from the MCU come from?

Oh shit, I missed sign-ups for Fandom Trumps Hate. :(

I discovered a 3-part documentary series called "Epic Warrior Women" which is narrated by Lynda Carter. 😘 I'm only 5 minutes in, but they've already shown "Amazons" (from Scythia, Central Asia) not to be white. Off to a good start! πŸ‘

Heh. I bought into the spider-verse on blu-ray - finally, a release with actually worthwhile extras. just started "alt universe mode", curious to see what they did with it!

Oh wonderful. The lady from downstairs just came and asked me if I had a leak because her ceiling's almost caving in from the water. This house is falling apart, is it? (That's what you get if the landlord only does the bare minimum. I'm *still* waiting for them to fix my ceiling from last December's leak.)

Rant brought to you by a certain President's speech at the WEF in Davos 

This winter has been insanely mild. I've been dressed too warmly on several occasions & haven't even broken out some of my proper winter clothes. So today I was caught completely unprepared by the suddenly biting cold. Every time I step outside I can't help but curse. Still, apparently tomorrow we'll be back to 11C. πŸ™ˆ
But hey, climate change isn't real and we're fear mongering, huh, you stupid tangerine?!

More proof that grammar is important, from a handwritten ad my co-worker showed me:

We are looking for a "piano teacher" for our "son", please apply...

Someone obviously misunderstood what quotation marks are for. *facepalm*

Holy mother of... Checking my email this morning revealed an absolutely unexpected surprise: a complete stranger turned one of my drabbles into a !!! Didn't even tell me (there's a blanket permission for transformative works on my AO3 profile), just did it. There might have been dolphin noises on my part. *g*

Do I need to cut for Little Women spoilers? 

Just finished, and wow, I love this adaptation! It was gorgeous - and I adore the ending, which feels so true to Alcott's spirit!

Do I need to cut for Little Women spoilers? 

Just started the new movie, and I think the decision to start in medias res is smart. It shows us Jo writing in New York and Amy in Paris before their childhoods. So maybe in this one I won't be distracted by my dissatisfaction with the romantic pairings, because I've seen Jo & Prof. Baer and Amy & Laurie before Jo and Laurie becoming best friends. (I'm such a sucker for childhood friends to lovers, it's made enjoying the book wholeheartedly difficult.)

I might accidentally have turned into a woman who Gets Her Nails Done. Thing is, manicures are incredibly expensive here in Switzerland (as are most things, lbr), but I found a place where you pay half if you go to the apprentice.
So I went before Christmas for shellac nail polish, y'know, and then again before my bday - and last week, I broke 2 nails, so she fixed them yesterday. They look almost real! And I already set a next appointment, so I guess this is a Thing I do now. Weird! :)

Remember what I said yesterday about the annoying Inspector Mallory on Father Brown? As if they heard me, the last episode of the series brings back BOTH previous inspectors - and they're both happy to include and listen to Father Brown. In your face, Mallory! I feel rather vindicated. :D
