Did at least get a nap yesterday.

Today is con prep, tomorrow through Monday is con, Tuesday through Friday is volunteer training prep, Saturday and Sunday are parties and the Cambridge River Festival and a supply drive for DV shelters, next Monday-Friday is volunteer training, then Pride... the next day I'm not booked to the gills is June 13th.

Not kidding.

I am probably not going to get the shawl done in time, with all of the other stuff that needs doing today; I'm on the third row of the edging, but that's... 25 rows, I think? And at this point, rows are very long. But I could potentially get it done at Logan airport tomorrow and get started on the next one.

Dear 'song
You are going to hit the $1 ARC table at the Gathering hard, and therefore you only need to bring one book to Wiscon. Really. Experience has proven.

There will be a big Wiscon organizational post later.

Supermassive black holes may frequently roam galaxy centers.

Work, then all the prep of going away for five days.

Getting buzzed by putting straight vodka into one's eye? This is beyond mere WTF-land. I'm seen some stupid shit in my day, but this is beyond belief.

Thankfully, the eyeball shot article is probably 80% shock reporting fueled by small pockets of the actual incident. The whole thing reminds me of the vodka-soaked tampon up the butt urban legend.

The article has a lot of tells: most of the content is anecdotal, from a single woman who sustained an injury from doing it. This is accompanied by several photos of single people doing it in a way totally different from the one described in the video. While there may be youtube videos up of this goofiness, it strikes me that the primary goal of doing a vodka shot through the eye at all would be so you could put it on youtube to prove you actually did it.

Dedicated college binge drinkers who run in circles that actually did vodka eye shots won't be doing it for long. If you see your friends permanently damaging themselves doing this just to get drunk faster, you may as well switch to heroin.

The main tell is that it is from the Daily Mail here in the UK. My mum's daily newspaper. The comments say it all; very conservative and very — reactionary and not-young readership.

$1 ARC table... I'm DOOMED. May have to bring extra luggage just for that.

I misread "supermassive" as "submissive". XD
