Tew's Day

I spent the last three days in my pajamas. Because if I was in my pajamas, I was not leaving the house. This turned out, as ad I'd hoped, to very much be what my body needed. I am feeling somewhat restored.

*ahem*
Dear Hugo-voter readers - I'm eligible for the Campbell Award. I'm just sayin'.

Sunday Sunday Sunday!
I'll be in part of "A Memory, a Monologue, a Rant, and a Prayer: Writings to Stop Violence Against Women and Girls." At Arts @ the Armory. $10. For charity! You like charity! Details here and in the Facebook invite.

Link Soup
* March 20 is Obscura Day. Who wants to mount an expedition?
* Naked Girld Reading Science Fiction. I'd do that.
* "Holy _________, Batman!" [h/t scalzi] I kinda want to use some of those as writing prompts.
* An important poll.
* Evil Mad Scientist Labs has the best linkdumps.

Daily Science
Scientists at the Relativistic Heavy Ion Collider (RHIC), a 2.4-mile-circumference particle accelerator at the U.S. DOE's Brookhaven National Laboratory, report the first hints of profound symmetry transformations in the hot soup of quarks, antiquarks, and gluons produced in RHIC's most energetic collisions. In particular, the new results, reported in the journal Physical Review Letters, suggest that "bubbles" formed within this hot soup may internally disobey the so-called "mirror symmetry" that normally characterizes the interactions of quarks and gluons.

Plans
Work, paper-and-pen edits to "MPB", reading, Diesel. Still in deceleration mode, clearly.

Anticipated plans: I'm interested in Thursday evening's Gardner After Hours: Carnevale event. Anyone want to join me?

... and speaking of RHIC... I saw a snippet on the news this morning talking about this:

HOT STUFF!

I was thinking of you this weekend when I went to the New England Mobile Book Fair. They have a whole section devoted to gluten-free cooking. Plus, the entire story is loaded with books and shiny in general...

How do you think one becomes a professional naked sci-fi reader...? I mean, I do it in my spare time for free ;).

Ah ha! I knew it..I KNEW it! Frankie in accounting owes me five bucks now! "Mirrored symmetry is constant across all universal states" he said, and I was all like "Nuh uh! What about in a quark-gluon plasma?" and he was all like "Pfft...shya, whatever!" and I was all like "Five bucks man! Five bucks!"
