Happy birthday to kires and wakingdreaming!

Hello to new reader sevenravens!

Medical
Today I am one year seizure-free.

I have been marking off the days, waiting waiting, but afraid to tell people today was approaching, as I live in fear of jinxing myself. But. It is here.

One year.

Wiscon Reading
Will officially be me, csecooney, sevenravens, and pattytempleton. There will be fey whimsy up in here, oh yes. And quite probably candy.

Clothesline Project
All day today in the atrium at South Station. As many shirts as we can fit. You should come and see. My shift is 11:30-1:30, if you want to see me specifically, or if you want to do lunch after.

NEEDS MOAR SPONSORS
Team Venture, that is. The Walk for Change is just days away. Can you help our walkers make their goals?

And remember to give me your name if you want me to walk for you!

Ride-scouting
I have some parties Saturday night that I'd love to attend, but my carlessness makes that impractical, as they're far enough out that I'd have to leave way early to be certain of catching the last bus from Harvard. Not far out for driving, just a combination of buses and trains that has multiple points of possible failure 'round midnight. And I can't just crash on someone's couch in town, because I need to report to the Walk way early to help with setup.

Anyone willing?

A thought that needs writing
Not that I have time now, but note to self: explore connections between priestessing and counseling and, ahem, topping men, because there are fascinating links.

Link Soup
You are so funny if you think I had five minutes yesterday to see anything online! So cute! You should make your own link soup today, and pass me a bowl.

Plans
Work, Clothesline Project, most probably nap. Because I really needed to yesterday and didn't get to. Am home tonight, and keeping it that way.

Congratulations on your anniversary. Going to celebrate by getting a driver's license? :)

...I've had one since I was 21!
7th-Apr-2010 10:44 pm (UTC)
...why did I think you didn't have one? Hmmm.

Here in Kansas, though, with a seizure disorder, you could have *lost* your license until you could prove, medically, that you had your seizures under control, by being seizure-free for a year. Happened to the wife of a friend of mine, several years back.

Your improving health is gladdening. Keep up the good health.

I heard a very well-done story on NPR this morning about kids who age out of the foster care system.

CANDY?

Good to know. I'll have to remember to bring some.

Unless you mean... EAR CANDY??? EYE CANDY??? In which case, we have all we could POSSIBLY provide!
7th-Apr-2010 04:46 pm (UTC)
In celebration, please enjoy this recipe for gluten-free Oreos.

Congrats on your one-year mark!

I don't know if you read my LJ, so I'll pass this on here, just in case you find it helpful: King Arthur launches gluten-free line

I don't know how you feel about them, but I bake with King Arthur flour exclusively. They're a local, employee-owned company.

I'm glad it's been a year :)

Wrt priestessing and counseling - counseling is a common subset of skills to most ministry/clergy. Priestessing and topping men/the secular - this brings to mind the beauty of the sacred whore.

I was just reading about another definition of Virgin wrt the "virgin" goddesses like Diana/Artemis/Kali where Virgin meant "in control of their own fate" rather than "abstaining from sex." Which means these "pure" goddesses may well be dominant goddesses.

If you need a sounding board while spinning out your connections, I'm willing to play that part. :)

Congratulations on one seizure-free year! I remember how excited I was when I had my first year seizure-free. I also remember how scared I was when I woke up in the ICU and could not remember any of my friends' phone numbers and (even more disturbing to me) could not remember the names of any of the kings and queens of England.

I only had that one seizure (which was never explained), but I hope I never have another one, and I wish the same for you.
