Hello to new reader encarmencita
I kinda walked from Harvard to Central, Central to Porter to Davis back to Porter back to Davis, and my legs are like "GTFO". Less walking today. But I want to get to the point where I can do something like that regularly.
Energy levels were markedly up yesterday, yay. :)Knitting
The TARDIS scarf will be a basketweave scarf instead, because that I can actually get done in time. I can attempt the TARDIS scarf elsetime.

* Fantasy has a poll, too
. I remind you that they have published some great stuff this year; highlights have been the stories by Aidan Doyle, Nicole Kornher-Stace, Samantha Henderson, Rachel Swirsky, Alaya Dawn Johnson, Genevieve Valentine, and Camille Alexa, IMO.
* And yep, Clarkesworlde
, too, with shiny stories by Ekaterina Sedia, N.K. Jemison, Nnedi Okorafor, Richard Parks, Cat Rambo, Nick Mamatas, Alex Dally McFarlane, and so many more.
Special attention to Jemison's story in Clarkesworld and Doyle's in Fantasy, as I think those are the stories I forwarded around most this year.Link Soup

Work, home, lunch. Need to get Electric Velocipede edits done. Perhaps I will have some writing time today? We'll see what happens. No plans for *tonight*, which is good; with so much approaching, I need to have some time to not be in motion.
