Sometimes it's all that I can do when I think about the president - Myth Happens

To conclude the exciting events of yesterday, my voice gave out completely around midnight and I have been functionally mute ever since. Even whispering hurts. I've been trying to reserve it for the cats. As for the knee, I can put less weight on it than yesterday, but I can still put weight on it, so I am getting around the apartment with a cane, which is freaking the cats out slightly. I am filing this entire situation under "on beyond stupid." At least my DVD of Michael Almereyda's Experimenter: The Stanley Milgram Story (2015) arrived, so I can show it to derspatchel. And Yoon Ha Lee's "Extracurricular Activities" (dedicated to me I think because I kept nudzhing him for more sex in the space opera) went live at Tor.com today. And Rob just discovered that the Scoop 'n' Scootery in Arlington Center delivers coconut-milk ice cream in addition to the regular dairy kind and ordered me some. I had hoped to write about the enjoyable mostly awful science fiction we watched last night in defiant observance of some kind of Valentine's Day, but I haven't had the attention for it. I might just go back to bed.

That does not sound bad at all. I am spending a lot of time with Sxip Shirey.

I never knew that was Michael Almereyda! Didn't even know he was still working, actually. Thanks!

You're welcome! It's the only thing I've ever seen by Almereyda; I really liked it. Peter Sarsgaard makes a great Milgram.

I must have totally missed that review, but it's great. It really makes me want to see it.

I am pleased to report it's on Netflix right now, at least in the U.S. I have no idea if it is characteristic of Almereyda's style, but I think it's worth your time.

Well, that's a bit rough, about your voice/throat. :( I'm sorry, and rest up.

Thank you. Just tonight my voice has started to come back, in a sort of thready squeak, so I'm trying not to jinx it.
