Happy birthday to rubian77
Tiiiired. Did not nap yesterday. Did start coughing again last night, so I need to Watch It.The 3six5
Yesterday was my day to write for the 3six5. I was going to write about the BARCC workshop I was leading last night.I wrote about losing Irana instead
I managed to do the workshop last night, because she would have wanted that. Then I hit Grendel's Pub with pierceheart
, and LJless BARCC colleagues Dave and Liz, and raised a glass - well, two - in her honor. "The Parting Glass" singalong was a very good thing. So was swapping stories with pierceheart
, whose friend died last month. "So this one time, Irana..." "No shit, there I was, and Dirk..."
Thank you to everyone who listened yesterday.Link Soup

Work. Then I have a three-hour gap between work and having to be at South Station to hand out flyers for the Walk for Change (sponsor me
!), which isn't enough to make a trip home worthwhile, so maybe I can cajole someone into last-minute lunch plans. South Station 4-6, then cocooning at home; no Gardner Museum thing for me tonight. For lo, I am weary.
