Thor's Day

Cautiously optimistic. I know it'll take a while to start feeling better.

Concern of the day: I'm trying to figure out how paranoid I need be re: cross-contamination. I know I need my own colander. Do I need my own dishes?

IAF Stuff
Bear with me! The reading/concert is tomorrow night, and nothing based on my story goes up next week, so you'll have a reprieve soon. But.

* Did I mention that the reading/concert is tomorrow night? Lily Pad. Cambridge (Inman Square). 7:30pm. This is the first event emilytheslayer's organized for the IAF; help make it even more awesome.

* Auctions! arianhwyvar's Shatterglass Datakey is ending tomorrow. Tempest and Ellen Kushner are duking it out over it; make them work for it! Ilene Winn-Lederer's Visual Fiction ends Saturday, and emilytheslayer's gorgeous art yarn ends Sunday (and I WANT).

* 24 hours more to spread the word and win a free copy of the book. Maybe not precisely. Just - when I wake up tomorrow. So you should get on that today.

Knitting
Not the best picture of me or of the shawl (it's way more even than it looks there!), but this is the Noro Kureyon shawl all blocked out. We didn't crazy stretch it, just flattened out the garter sections and got the edges to not roll.

Daily Science
Two teams of astronomers have found a planet outside the solar system that might be orbiting backwards compared to its star's rotation, a discovery that could shed light on how unique the relatively perfect alignment of our solar system is compared to that of other planetary systems.

Plans
No one has any demands on my time today. Phew. So I'll look at the pile of half-finished short stories and see what I can do there - I'd like to get some short fiction written and in circulation before I dive into Cicatrix and the rape culture book. My headspace has been all tangled lately. Also I should time myself reading "Valentines" aloud.

I would say that if everything is scrubbed and then goes through the dishwasher, you don't need your own dishes. If you wash in the sink, you need your own sponge as well as your own dishes. Depending on the degree that you have a sensitivity, of course.

Seems to say that your own baking items and spatulas, etc are a great idea.

An excuse to attend Spatula City!

I want to come to the reading/concert! *pout*

I will just have to make Denver into a center of literary excellence, so that those things happen here.

*determined*

Also, we can has Cicatrix?

You can has! Writing it in tandem with the rape culture book, so I can swing from the darkness of one to the optimism of the other.

That's an excellent approach!

We don't have two sets of dishes.

cross contamination can be a huge issue - it may be very worth getting seperate cooking materials. If your daughter also is diagnosed as a celiac, it may make sense to go totally GF in your kitchen.

I would suggest waiting and seeing on the cross-contamination thing. Work on getting yourself gluten-free and getting the pots/pans/etc that you have to have separate. Once you have the new diet that down pat, you can see how you're doing health-wise. If you think there's still a lot more room for improvement, you can get your own dishes and all that.

That way you won't have another thing pushing against you and contributing to you feeling overwhelmed.

I agree.
