If Susan Collins, Shelley Moore Capito, or Lisa Murkowski, please call them to thank them for standing firm against repeal.

Squirrel thinks his pay check will cover it, but it means we are going to be two month's late on our electric bill, which we had to float to make the June Car repairs. (He's also going to lose his phone).

This is a real emergency. We lose electric we are fucked, especially in this heat in the middle of allergy season when my lung meds (requiring electricity) are pretty much all that keep me upright. Anything people can send will help, as offering electric a partial payment is better than nothing.

* Lee and Moran have joined Collins and Paul in the "no" column on this iteration of ACA Repeal. Thanks to all of you who have made your voices heard. The protests worked. If these are your Congress Critters, consider calling them and thanking them, to encourage future spine in future iterations. If you have Republican Senators and/or Members of the House, please consider joining a Die In, Sit In, Town Hall Protest, one of those clever concrete things like the balloons or the paper chain things, Office protest, calling, or faxing now through end of August Recess. There is nothing stopping them from trying again except constituent anger.

This meant tow to honest Mechanic. If you are watching the expense of all this ratchet up in your head, you are experiencing my afternoon only without the heat, escalating stress and grim resignation.

Squirrel called me a Blue Cab home as I haven’t a cell phone, it was way too far to gimp even if I didn’t have an impressive amount of spinal damage, and I had the rest of the cash he’d handed me for repairs that I had not spent on the tow physically on my person. Blue cab is a glorious left wing alternative to Yellow Cab founded by ex-yellow cabbies that is cheaper and treats their employees well (Unlike Uber), and regulated (unlike Uber), and safe (unlike Uber). Today’s driver was a gorgeous larger woman with purple hair to match her clothes and some really cute arm tattoos. Seriously, I fricken love blue cab with the friendly counter culture drivers.

It turned out to be Customer Appreciation Day and the ride was free!

The rest though? Jesus fuck! So now we need to try to raise $4-500ish for this month’s car repairs as we are ALSO a month behind on Electricity because of last month’s car repairs. We can’t NOT fix it, as there is no Graveyard shift public transport for Squirrel and my disabilities make not having a car pretty much unlivable.

I hate that I keep having to beg for money, but I feel like I’m bailing a leaky boat with a sieve and we’re going to drown.

* I am going to be furious if the bullshit politicking at the Bolshoi robs us of a chance to see Maria Alexandrova dance as Margot Fonteyn to Vladislav Lantratov's Nureyev. She is absolutely the perfect person to embody Fonteyn, and he has really come into his own this Spring. He is ready to do it now, I think, and their dancing together is beautiful and so gloriously in sync just now. I want this Nureyev to happen so much, even if I never get to see it. Rudolph Nurayev is so important to dance and meant so much to me growing up. I want this art to exist in the world, especially right now in the era of Putin and the anti-LGBTQIA laws and persecution in Russia. It's so important that it exist, that it be done right, that it be filmed so people can see it.

Seriously, I can't remember before my Dad and I used to watch Baker and Pertwee episodes both of which broadcast in my area all through my child, plus the 5th Doctor ones once Tom baker retired from being the Doctor. I'm old school fandom.), because the relentless sexism and general lack of diversity rendered the Moffat Era ones unwatchable to the point I gave up early in Capaldi. I want to make super clear my dislike of the incredibly bad, steadily deteriorating, and -ism ridden writing is in no way a reflection on Mr. Smith or Mr. Capaldi, both of whom did fine work with what they had, or on the people playing the companions. I quit a fandom I'd loved for 40ish years because Moffat kept smuggly moffatting over it.

I have heard Moffat is out after this season in exchange for Chris Chibnall, and while in my heart of hearts I'd dreamcast Sophie Okonedo, I am incredibly happy for Jodie Whittaker and am looking forward to watching a show I used to love again.

* Today I gimped all the way to the book drop and back. It infuriates be how painful and exhausting this is, as the distance would have meant nothing to me before I got sick. Books needed to go, so I went. I lunged when I got home, and my legs went out from under me when I got up to start dinner, but it was a short fall and the sofa was there to catch me so I'm not hurt. I did use up most of the pain resistance and spoons, but I expected that. Litter really needs changing, but it will have to wait and all the things needing feeding got fed before I left as I knew it would be bad.

We scored a car appointment for Monday, but Squirrel is bleeding money on ubers to work until then, and I am trapped here. The library will carry until then with what I dropped today.

Thanks to a kind donation, we will have enough cash by Monday to fix the battery wiring assuming nothing is dramatically more wrong than expected. I'm still down about 70.00 on bills, plus we need cat food and toilet paper, but we will survive the month, I think, assuming no more emergencies happen. I'll still need to catch up somehow, and we still need front tires before the rains come for sure, but given this car is just old enough to drink, these small things going wrong is understandable.

* I also voted today. Yes, it is July and no one is thinking about voting, but my state has a lot of primaries. I know, I know, it's an off year and no one is thinking about voting right now, and the only races on the ballet were Port and Council-at-Large. Not glamorous, I know, but important. It's in these little local elections republicans kick our asses because they vote in every single one. We NEED to vote in every single one. Every single primary. (In my state it's open primaries, with top two going on to the general. This means that you can get two Republicans in November or two Democrats, or a Democrat and a Green or Libertarian. Primary turn out can determine if it's a lose/lose election or a win/win. People of Washington? Let's always aim for the Win/Win). Every single race even if's it's just for dog catcher. Every single General election. Yes even in an off year.

Vote early if you can, because it's better to find out you've been summarily disenfranchised by some bullshit Republican algorithm that decides there can only be one registered Jane Smith or Maria Sanchez in the entire country and therefore all of them are voting illegally early. The earlier you find out, the more time you have to fight to get your citizen's rights back from the Autocrats. Voting in primaries does that too. Better to find out in July and have time to get it sorted for November.

If you have a chance to vote? Do it. Use it or lose it.

If I’m remembering right the estimate was in the $150-200 range. I’ve next to nothing, bills having already gone out except the auto-withdraw for insurance I can’t mess with and I’m already floating a bill for this month. He’s not convinced he can squeeze that much out of his budget.

Fuck. I was hoping we had the summer to raise it and the tires felt more urgent, but those will for sure have to wait.

They have yet another ACA Repeal/Trumpcare attempt in process.

They are hoping we will give up and go away. We can't afford to. People will literally die so they can win the tax cut for the .1% this is in aid of.
