Let me tell you a story
Administration
Hello to new reader affreca!

Medical
Recovering from Monday's barometric-pressure ouch. Slowly but surely.

Rabbit Hole Day
Only doing the one entry today, because I've no time. That's the first bit of Cicatrix I wrote; I started it as a short story to submit to Interfictions 2, but it became clear by the end of the segment that it intended to be a novel. So I wrote "Valentines" and got into Interfictions 2 anyway.

Wasn't until after I wrote that bit that I realized how the character got elsewhere in the first place. Which resulted in a "HOSHIT I must write this." I'm trying to get short fiction and poetry obligations off the table first so I can focus appropriately.

Facebook
Is anyone else unable to get anything beyond their profile and live/news feed to load?

Wiscon
I need to know if you are going, please!

No Link Soup today, but

Daily Science
After six years of unprecedented exploration of the Red Planet, NASA's Mars Exploration Rover Spirit no longer will be a fully mobile robot. NASA has designated the once-roving scientific explorer a stationary science platform after efforts during the past several months to free it from a sand trap have been unsuccessful.

Plans
Basically, what I've been trying to do all week! Errand-running kept me from my writing time yesterday, but I've no errands today. So there.

Just saw this on my f=list: Has Facebook been a little slow lately? Go to "Settings" and select "Application settings", change the dropdown box to "Added to profile". If you see "un named app" delete it... It's an internal spybot.

I looked, and sure enough it was in my list. Might help a little?

that would be nice to check, but really, Like 'song says, there is nothing but empty page for anything other than newsfeed and status updates.

Well, and I also just found out that the whole thing is a hoax anyway, the unnamed app is just the Boxes tab on your profile and not anything malevolent after all.

It's the same here for me.

Facebook looks fine to me.

The story of Sprit is amazing. How many man-made things do you know of that last 6 years beyond their scheduled lifespan?

Faceborg is broken in the same way for me.

I cannot tell you how deeply and passionately I love Cicatrix.

NASA has designated the once-roving scientific explorer a stationary science platform after efforts during the past several months to free it from a sand trap have been unsuccessful.

So...Mars actually made the decision for them, and now NASA's saying "fine! We didn't want to move it anyway!"
