State of the 'Song
Robaxin hypothesis is proven, and I sigh. But still. Catching up on sleep is a Good Thing.

StrowlerCon!
Now has supporting memberships and scholarships for tickets and lodging! If you can't make it, but want to support this awesome event, here's your chance! More about StrowlerCon later.

Clothing Swap
For the next clothing swap: do it to support local domestic violence shelters! (I can't host - my living room is too small. tamidon's willing to host - are y'all willing to go beyond 128?)


Hee!

Again, busy all day yesterday, so no link soup.

Daily Science
Titan, one of Saturn's moons, is the only moon in the solar system with an atmosphere -- ten times denser than the atmosphere of Earth. Five years ago, the Cassini-Huygens mission to Saturn, a collaboration between the European Space Agency and NASA, sent a probe through Titan's atmosphere, revealing that Titan is home to a landscape that includes hills, valleys and most notably lakes. A researcher involved with the mission, Prof. Akiva Bar-Nun of Tel Aviv University's Department of Geophysics and Planetary Sciences, has now determined the composition of these lakes. Taking into account the chemical components of Titan's atmosphere, he has demonstrated that the lakes are not composed of water but contain liquid hydrocarbons like ethane and methane, which are also found in oil and gas wells on Earth.

Plans
Work, with a Very Important Meeting and decisions to be made about who gets into the next volunteer training. Then haircut. Yes, I am losing a few inches; no, I am not getting a pixie bob. Just evening my hair out as new growth catches up. Tonight I have date with sindrian.

I am willing to go past 128, depending on whether it's a day my sister can drive me. And we could give two or three other people a ride as well.

I love your daily science notes. ^_^

More than willing to give rides to people from the Medford/Somerville/Cambridge area as well.

Looks like mud_puppy is going to be hosting one the end of October.

But I'm not on the Suspects List so I haven't seen details yet.

There can be two; I doubt there's much crossover! :)

I'm already outside 128. :p We are used to braving dragons and mountain trolls and stuff. It's all good!

Oh, and there's a thrift store up here that takes donations and uses the money to support women and families who are trying to get on their feet and off the streets. If everyone thinks that's a good cause to donate the leftover stuff to, we have a big car and could take the leftovers to them on our way home.
