Mom has officially gotten permission to do a "literary biography" of Winston Graham. It'll be heavy of the "literary" and light on the "biography," but his writings have always been her interest. She read and blogged about the Poldark books long before this new TV series came out. This also means she'll be spending a month in Britain sometime this summer reading up on the relevant documents. I'm not sure she's been away from home for that long since she and dad were married. That'll be an interesting month for the both of us.
For some reason I'm getting a bunch of messages from OkCupid tonight, including a rude one, one from a guy a little too far south, and one from a guy in India! Does anyone ever seriously manage to form anything through OkCupid with anyone who lives on the other side of the planet? Not something I'm up to, I'm afraid. I also got one from a guy who spends most of his time in Dubai, but at least he spoke of traveling to DC occasionally (I wrote a response, but I think my opinion on Dubai offended him, because he hasn't written since).
Now that I'm done with Iron Fist, I'm all ready for The Defenders to come out. Or maybe it can wait until I finish that Karen writing obituaries fic I've been working on. Looking forward way too much to The Punisher too, although at least, unlike Iron Fist it's not pushing any new seasons of the other four series back to a later premiere date than they'd otherwise have. Seriously, do we have to have a second season of that one?

Tonight, my mother went out to see a cinematic broadcast of a London production of Who's Afraid of Virginia Woolf starring Imelda Staunton. And she got confused as to where she'd put the car, and called me in hysterics, before she found the security office and they helped her find it. Not the most auspicious night before our upcoming beach vacation. Apparently the production wasn't very good either.
Now one episode away from finishing Iron Fist. About time, since they're starting the buildup to The Defenders. Finishing with mixed feelings. The later part of the season is definitely better paced and more engaging than the first half. But there are still plenty of things it doesn't fix, and meanwhile, I'm really not sure how I feel about the whole twist with Colleen Wing.
Wondering if maybe we'll be rid of Trump after all, but also wondering if it'll do much good at this point, unless this whole Flynn and the transition team thing actually takes out Pence too, the investigation first takes long enough to stretch to 2019, and the House flips. But that would be a year and a half away, by which time all the damage may have been done. Meanwhile, they're not even letting us write to the FCC about Net Neutrality any more, and I don't know what happens to any of us if we lose that. Getting kind of tired of Comcast's lies getting tweeted into my timeline too.
Actually, getting kind of tired of all the promoted tweets you aren't even allowed to dismiss any more. It's not to the point where I'm considering leaving Twitter yet, but they are making themselves harder to use in more than one way.
