I have to search for vegan stuff because kiddo has allergies to dairy and eggs, well maybe just egg now, but whatever.

Anyway if I don't kill add tracking it gets me some of the dumbest woo shit ever.

Like "high energy water". WTF.

I've had to increase plant-based eating in the last year since my body is starting to get BIG MAD over animal proteins (this getting old shit sucks). Purple Carrot has helped immensely with meal planning, and their heat-and-eat meals do not suck.

Nothing!  We're literally up to our noses in potable water!  It hasn't stopped raining since June 12th.  We all died.

Off to DC tomorrow to do important HistorianTM and ArchaeologistTM things.

No trip to DC is complete without making a pilgrimage to Woodrow Wilson's tomb, digging him up, and kicking his segregationist ass around a bit.

Well, now that you know The Plan: Meet me at the tomb at sundown.

Yeah. I've been taking iron these last couple of months because I found out I was anemic AF.

But there is still good in this sad old world. This is kind of an anti-vatnik HIMEOBS.  :lulz:

There is no such thing as HIMEOBS.

Trying to cope with my own shit: Anger projection.

I'm not exactly Ms. Sunshine on an average day, but I did work pretty hard to reduce my anger for several years, mostly after Jeff and I got together. That self-awareness went up in smoke. Thanos snapped and so did I.

I'm both amused and horrified at my behavior. On one hand: it didn't take long to unravel years of growth and therapy, on the other, I turned back into the heartless monster I was known for. So well that I got myself a perma-ban from Twitter. Don't get me wrong, they totally deserved it, but Twitter also needs to be held accountable for their population of white supremacists they still allow on the platform. I'll get consistently attacked and my DMs flooded by the usual deplorable suspects, but this week I went full on no quarter and got what I deserved I guess. My patience is non-existent, and my empathy is well and truly gone. When my drunk mother tried to lament to me how her marriage to my father is falling apart (it has been for decades, really), I stood there without emotion and asked her if she was trying to usurp the fact that my husband is fucking dying, or if she really cared that much if my dad got her a cake for her birthday or not. I flat out told her that once Jeff was gone, I was taking off and never coming back.

The truth is, I don't really fucking care, and while that sounds like a good thing, I feel like a goddamn psychopath. Either I feel nothing at all, or I am ready to burn it all down, with nothing in between. It's 100% a trauma response, but it's starting to have consequences. Twitter doesn't matter, but my abrasiveness at school is going to start causing issues, so I need to check myself. Losing the support of my family will cost me as well.

Self-care is a fucking joke when things get like this. I haven't even found time to color my hair before I go on a trip this week for school.

His white blood cell count is too high, rather than dropping.

This could be a side effect of the chemo, or, indicative of possible leukemia, which means metastasis into his bone marrow.

This is fine.  :kingmeh:

I have been brewing since 2008, and have had ONE successful batch of cider. Just one. The natural yeast one created bombs when bottled, and it took a full year cold crashing in the fridge to be drinkable. Made a hell of a pork marinade, though.

Oh yeah? Well, I have eight days of brewing experience, and have also consulted extensively with a distinguished Italian winemaker, who considered my cider-making aspirations to be highly dubious, and suggested I might be better off using sugar and yeast to grow vodka in a bucket.

Then he sold me a bucket with a hole in the lid, a rubber bung, an airlock, and some sodium metabisulphite for $15.

I guess I shouldn't be too optimistic.

SCIENCE!

The apple tree produced waaay too many apples this year, so I decided to try making cider.

Now I've got a bucket full of science bubbling in the basement, I'm worrying if I did an adequate job of decontamination, and the whole house smells of apple.

Did you add yeast, or are you rolling au naturale? The results of the latter can be very, very surprising and not always in the best way.

I started it au naturel, but after a couple days without any obvious fizzly noises, thought better of it, and added a packet of SafCider which I bought from Likor Shak. I didn't sterilize the existing solution, so, for good or ill, there's an indeterminate mixture of wild yeast and saccharomyces bayanus living in there now.

This is less a well-controlled experiment, and more the "let's try some things and see what happens" kind of science.

I kept back a good quantity of apples, in the anticipation that my first attempt might turn out badly.
