1. For a vid I am vaguely contemplating making, I am looking for a triumphant saving-the-world type song - the sort of song you might vid women kicking ass to, if that makes sense. (The Eurythmics "I Saved the World Today" is topically right, but way too regretful, sadly.)

2. I am currently applying both a mineral sunscreen (mostly suspended in oil) and an oil-based bug deterrent (citronella, lemongrass, etc, in an oil + beeswax base). So my question is, in which order should I apply these things? Should I wait for a bit between them? The internet is full of answers to this question that presume DEET, which, like, ha, as if, I have tried many brands of DEET at work in the past and they all make me cough and cough and cough. So then I stopped using them, but I still had a ridiculous asthma attack at a state fair last year when someone sprayed it over their shoulder directly into my face. THANKS, assholes.

FWIW, if you're looking for bug sprays, I've previously been able to use permethrin-based insect repellant - the kind you soak or spray onto clothes and let dry - without any skin reaction. It's one of those things I only do if there's a really serious bug problem, or I'm going to be outside all the time, because I have to wear gloves and a face mask to apply the spray, but once it's on and dried I launder it once and then it's fine for me.

3. Why is it that, when I rewatch Babylon 5, I always end up rewatching "Infection" even though I know it will hurt me? I mean, okay, I am that kind of completist about fandoms, but I've been happily skipping the A plot of "Believers" (except for Kosh's scene) and "TKO" for years now. I don't know why I'm sitting here right now watching Ilya Kuryakin as a space archaeologist. I could be rewatching River Song right now! Who wins in a space-archaeologist-off by approximately all the points ever.
