I must have missed that news update where 'the good guy with the gun' on the Portland train leapt into the fray with his registered weapon and his responsible gun ownership card and his precise and accurate shooting in a crowded train, and got the knife-wielding perpetrator before he killed two men and injured a third.

Three men in London killed nine people in eight minutes. One man in Orlando killed forty-nine in about the same space of time.

No, the UK is not having a discussion about gun control. They don't need to.

No, America is not having a discussion about gun control. But anyone with a lick of sense knows they should be - and not the way Republican 45 thinks they should.

In spite of the last post venting my spleen, things personally are actually quite good.

1. Little finger is still swollen but not hurting as much. Doctor hasn't called back about the x-rays, so I'm guessing I broke a blood vessel in the finger, or bruised the bone, but didn't break it. The x-rays didn't look broken to me, but I'm not a doctor; however, the silence probably means there's not much to worry about.

eta: just called the doc's office - good news! little finger not broken. Bad news: finger I broke 3 years ago hasn't joined back together - it's still technically broken...

2. I watched a bunch of vids last night on how to apply makeup when you have asymmetrical eyelids (one monolid, one hooded), and today I am wearing my new Eye Of Horus makeup. It's very subtle, because I'm not one for fancy and dramatic. I can't get a photo that I find satisfactory, though!

3. I have an idea for the first MCU AUfest fic (I picked up a PH, too).

4. Things are kind of quiet in the office right now, so I have time for writing!

5. We got a new vegie box delivered from a growers co-op kind of thing this week: it was sitting on my back step when I walked out to catch the bus this morning. Looking forward to seeing what's in it...

I doubt I know any young UKs around here, but just in case:

I wasn't much of a voter in my 20s or my 30s, but I did because I had to. Maybe it's a function of age, maybe it's a function of the age we're in, but these days I'd fight anyone who tried to stop me voting.
