Reminders:
- No deliberate variant fonts and no emoji in thread titles. You can use them in the comment, but not in the title.
- Only one catch-all 'Disruptive and Provocative Opinions' thread is allowed per post.
- All US Politics must stick to one thread and that thread must be clearly labelled as such.
- The 6500 comment limit is now permanent; 'which topics belong on main meme' wank remains banned.

All the [community profile] fail_fandomanon Rules and Information (and Ban Requests): https://fail-fandomanon.dreamwidth.org/1076.html. The short version: no embeds, don't out people's real names, don't be that much of an asshole, body fluids are off topic, Mods reserve the right to freeze, screen, and delete the fuck out of stuff. FFA discussion covers a wide variety of topics and has a very flexible view of 'fandom' that includes politics, current events, and cooking techniques. FFA is a Choose NOT to Warn experience. Meme away.

UK Politics & Brexit discussion should go in one top-level thread that's clearly named, same as with US Politics.

All discussion of sexual assault and rape culture in media should go in one thread.

It's challenge time!

Comment with Just One Thing you've accomplished in the last 24 hours or so. It doesn't have to be a hard thing, or even a thing that you think is particularly awesome. Just a thing that you did.

Feel free to share more than one thing if you're feeling particularly accomplished!

Extra credit: find someone in the comments and give them props for what they achieved!

Nothing is too big, too small, too strange or too cryptic. And in case you'd rather do this in private, anonymous comments are screened. I will only unscreen if you ask me to.

Go!

Just lovely!

But I probably should not have celebrated the arrival of good weather by going to the bookstore....

language practice returns

Mainly because I have been sick since this morning. I hope tomorrow I will be able to handle solid food; I have been on liquids.

Joe and I have this concept of "lowest energy state." It's the thing that you can do mindlessly to soothe yourself when you're too tired/sick/whatever to do anything else. For Joe, it's either watching anime or playing computer games. For me, right now, it's doing basic origami or language practice. I did a lot of Duolingo Welsh/French/German/Korean today...

Corrections/comments welcome, as always. Cockamamie "translations" of what I was trying to say available on request.

Cymraeg, in the form of a dialogue between Jedao and Cheris:

- Jedao: Sut mae, Cheris! Dych chi'n prynu gŵydd? Dw i'n caru'r gŵydd.
- Cheris: Sut mae, Jedao! Sut dych chi?
- Jedao: Dw i wedi blino ar hyn o bryd. A chi?
- Cheris: Dw i wedi blino hefyd, i fod yn onest. Dw i ddim yn eisiau prynu gŵydd. Dw i eisiau prynu llwynog.
- Jedao: Llwynog dw i! Pryd dych chi'n eisiau fwyta yn y swyddfa? Dych chi eisiau cawl heddiw?
- Cheris: Nac ydw. Dw i eisiau bwyta siocled neu tangerine.
- Jedao: Dw i'n mynd i yfed cwrw neu wisgi. Dych chi'n mynd i'r gwaith?
- Cheris: Ydw. Athro dych chi?
- Jedao: Ydw. Athrawes dych chi?
- Cheris: Ydw. Amser i fynd. Neis i weld chi. Hwyl!
- Jedao: Hwyl! Gwela i chi fory.

Français, in the form of a dialogue between Jedao and Cheris:

- Jedao: Bonjour, Cheris! Comment ça va?
- Cheris: Je vais bien. Et vous?
- Jedao: Comme ci, comme ça. Que fais-tu maintenant? Est-ce tu t'amuses?
- Cheris: Peut-être. Je dois conquérir l'univers.
- Jedao: Hein! Moi aussi. Peut-être nous pouvons travailler ensemble?
- Cheris: Mais je ne vous fais pas confiance. Vous êtes un goupil!
- Jedao: Les goupils sont complètement digne de confiance!
- Cheris: ...
- Jedao: Hélàs, maintenant je dois faire les vacances avec mon ami Kujen.
- Cheris: Est-il vraiment ton ami? Avec les amis comme lui, vous n'avez pas besoin des ennemis.

Deutsch, in the form of a dialogue between Jedao and Cheris:

- Jedao: Guten Tag, Cheris! Wie geht's?
- Cheris: Es geht mir gut! Was essen wir heute?
- Jedao: Keine Ahnung. Ich esse nicht, weil ich tot bin. Erinnerst du dich nicht?
- Cheris: Ja, ich erinnere mich nun. Ich hoffe, dass wir Schokolade essen können.
- Jedao: Ich mag Schokolade nicht.
- Cheris: Können die Geister essen?
- Jedao: ...Nein. Aber wir können denken, dass Schokolade ist schlecht.

한글, in the form of a dialogue between Jedao and Cheris:

- 재다오: 안녕, 채리스! 어떠니?
- 채리스: 안녕하세요, 재다오대군! 오늘 바둑노리 하십니까?
- 재다오: 고양이 사고시퍼.
- 채리스: 무순고양이 원합니까?
- 재다오: 귀여운 고롱고롱하는고양이.
- 채리스: 재가 고양이를 어들껍니다.

(Wow, Jedao is way easier to write in Korean because formal verb endings, what do?)

日本語, in the form of a dialogue between Jedao and Cheris:

- ジェダオ: ようこそ、チェリス!私の家へ?
- チェリス:あなたの家はどこにありますか?
- ジェダオ:星にあります。あなたの友達と会いますか?
- チェリス:私は友達がありません。
- ジェダオ:私たちは友達です!
- チェリス:...
- ジェダオ:レストランで寿司を食べますか?
- チェリス:はい。

(Sorry, I ran out of steam because my vocabulary is terribad.)

...Wow, it's so weird how the formality levels play out in some of these languages. (I didn't attempt to do it in Welsh because I frankly don't know enough of the conjugations yet. I just got introduced to "Sut wyt ti?" as the informal version of "Sut dych chi?/Sut dach chi?")

Soooooo I really am a bit sedentary

Well, sedentary with long walks because I'd always rather walk than take the bus, but still.

On the one hand, I want to exercise more for general health reasons. I don't want to end up old and find out that immobility has snuck up on me, nor do I want to discover that it's really true that being inactive increases your risk of dementia. (It's all well and good for me to assert that dementia doesn't run in my family, but that only works if I ignore my father's mother. Which I mostly do, but still. Probably I should stop doing that.)

On the other hand, I don't want to exacerbate existing joint issues, which would really suck and probably not help my old age mobility at all, especially not if that's connected to arthritis. In the past month my mother has mentioned off-hand an alarming number of relatives who were severely restricted due to arthritis at rather young ages - and that's only counting the ones who developed it in adulthood! There's at least one cousin of hers or her mother's who was apparently "totally crippled" before puberty. She can preen all she likes about how that gene seems to have skipped her, I see my sister increasingly worried and yet dodging the thought that she might already be developing arthritis. She's not even 40 yet! (She ought to go to a doctor. I think we all know that neither funds nor time is really the reason she hasn't.)

So clearly the thing to do is find some 15 or 20 minute daily exercise routine that's reasonably high intensity but isn't going to screw up my joints, at least, not more than they already are. Preferably something that can be done by somebody with no real coordination - I can't jump rope, I can't ride bikes, every day I nearly trip over my own two feet/my pants/the dogs and break my glasses.

Maybe I should just buy myself an exercise bike. When I don't need to balance, I am very unlikely to fall down. I'm not worried about myself so much as my poor glasses.
