Tew's Day!

Happy birthday to gows!

Hello to new reader nounsandverbs!

Still way tired.

Chanukah Shopping = Also Saved
Because Dad said to pay him back in a few weeks. So I can deposit the money from my birthmom and holiday-shop (still within reason and tight budget) for Elayna. Phew.

Last Week at Home
And I'm hoping to wrap up some short fiction and make a dent in Cicatrix. First up is tidying from Thanksgiving, though, because I know myself - I can't focus on writing when the house is a mess!

Two and a Half Weeks
Til I'm off to Florida. If you need any of that time, grab it now; much of it's already gone.

Link Soup
* Today in rape culture (trigger warning).
* What if famous superheroes had beards?
* Periodic table of cupcakes!
* Drowned cities.
* Patrick Rothfuss is raising money again!
* Thirty e-mails. Spread the awesome.

Daily Science
Three and a half centuries of the Royal Society.

Cleaning, organizing, writing, Diesel. Huddling in bed with the heated mattress pad because we have no heat. AGAIN.

OK, just to clarify--you will not be coming to SoFla?
1st-Dec-2009 01:34 pm (UTC)
Nope. :( I only get one week...

Ok, then it is good that I'm currently working on organizing a trip for myself to Boston and NYC in January (coinciding in part with Arisia.) I'm very glad you still get your Christmas with your birthfamily! And I also feel less bad on having to hold off on getting a puppy. Clearly, this is the Universe telling me you have to be with me to get the puppy.

Yay for you in Boston! :)

I shall have to plan a puppy trip.

Liam's school is doing a charity fund-raiser to make money to get kids beds whose families can't afford them. The fund-raiser they are doing is selling Equal Exchange coffee, tea, cocoa, chocolate, and snacks. Details here for ordering and I'll have the order forms with me at Diesel.

I love drowned places. There's one nearby, where a town was flooded when the damn was built, and it fascinates me almost enough to learn to SCUBA despite my intense fear of being trapped underwater. There are stories of bootleggers using the flooding of the town to get rid of people who crossed them, too.

Keen! Which ones? We seem to have a few diverse points of overlap....

I like the 30 emails idea. :)

If I'm being too nosy, just let me know, but is there a problem with your heating system, or something else going on?

Furnace issue; it happened last month, too. Thankfully the landlord just came home and fixed it!
1st-Dec-2009 07:15 pm (UTC)
Yay for landlords that fix things! (having had loads of experience with ones who don't)

PS check your gmail... <3

Patrick Rothfuss is made of gold.

Very nice guy in person, too. :)

I just bet. :)
