Hello to new readers handful_ofdust
!State of the 'Song
Rest came hard yesterday, thanks to the heat. Still working off post-Readercon exhaustion. Also, while Adam does not snore on the CPAP, every time the CPAP slips it produces a roaring noise that wakes me up. So there's that.Blogathon
I have 46 items pledged for the Blogathon auction; I have 49 slots. I have only 32 items absolutely confirmed or in my hands. If you were planning to make stuff, please let me know where you are on that; "haven't started yet" is an okay answer, I just want to make sure I'm still on your radar. If you make stuff and handn't signed up but have something neat in your inventory that I could auction for BARCC
, please let me know!
Database issued is solved; I can use OpenOffice instead of Access, yay. Click here to sponsor me
, and send me your e-mail receipt so I can keep track of my fundraising!Yale is Making me CrazyExplo
is at Yale this year. Elayna leaves on Sunday; my mother-in-law is here Friday-Monday, so I really only have until Thursday to get her all packed.
We finally cracked the student manual and got to the packing list, and I am deeply frustrated by the amount of stuff we need to buy.
Desk lamp. Hand soap
. Land phone, because they aren't allowed cell phones. I have to pack a lamp. And a big clunky phone and a fan, because they don't have A/C or fans... seriously, this list is extensive, and would be hilarious if I didn't have to buy everything on it.
Yale, why the hell do you not put out a little damn hand soap?
Any locals have twin x-long sheets I can borrow so I don't have to buy a new set of sheets that I'll then just be stashing in the closet for three years til she goes to college?This Week
I'll be out tonight (Inception
) and tomorrow (roller skating
), and Adam's mom gets here Friday, so I really mean it when I say I am not here
. I am not trying to avoid you. You are, in fact, invited to roller skating. People can stop by Thursday night to drop off Blogathon item donations, but be advised that Thursday night's our last chance to pack, so we'll be a bit distracted.Link Soup

Work, home... I hope to get my Readercon post done today as well as badgering Elayna into putting away her clean clothes and teaching her to do laundry. Also more Blogathon stuff. And I got pinged yesterday by someone who's all "hey, I'm going to be in town tomorrow!" and I am like "you are so funny
." Tonight's sneak preview of Inception
is at the Loew's Boston Common, and I have one ticket available; you'd need to be at the theater by 6. Anyone?
Next post will be more interesting! I am still mostly asleep, and very headachey.
EDIT: Also I must block a baby blanket tonight and a scarf tomorrow. Family, clear the damn dining room table, s'il te plait
