State of the 'Song
Ech enough that my boss looked at me yesterday and says "You're not walking home from the bus stop." Fair enough. Our car doors were frozen shut, but fortunately a fellow volunteer was able to give me a ride home. Running out of air in the middle of one's presentation brings out protectiveness in others. Which can make me bristly, but only when I don't need that protectiveness.

My Daughter
Tried to leave the house today in a tulle skirt over tights. In 12-degree weather. And a T-shirt with a thin hoodie, but at least that's under a wool coat, her new cowl, and a hat. She was summarily sent upstairs to apply pants to her ensemble.

Mystery!
There's a $20 bill next to my computer. Did I get a tip? What did I get a tip for? Was I a very good ________?

(I know now why it's there, but am still keenly interested in your theories.)

No Link Soup Today
Because I worked 1-5 and had meetings and didn't get home til 9ish and I watched RuPaul's Drag Race and went to sleep. So I am not up on my internets.

Daily Science
The composer Frédéric Chopin, who regularly hallucinated, probably had temporal lobe epilepsy throughout his short life, reveals research published online in Medical Humanities.

I claim Chopin for the tribe, y'all.

Plans
Work, home, writing, nap. I know, boring, but I am still not well. Deal with me being boring.

There's a whole Japanese RPG set within Chopin's dying hallucinations, in which you can play Frederic Chopin.

It is even more bizarre than one might expect from that setting.

I haven't played all the way through it yet, but it is beautiful and well worth finding.

Oh yes, I have it (and also haven't finished it yet). It's a little oddly-paced, but very lovely.

$20 tip for just being that awesome?

Come to think of it, didn't Einstein have status-absence seizures? Perhaps true genius requires that your brain is wired a little different.. either that, or unusual experiences leads to unusual thoughts...

Your computer has figured out how to print money?

Ha, "apply pants as needed" is going to be going through my head for the rest of the day now.

You got a tip for superior pants application, clearly.

That was exactly my thinking.

All y'all's mission today is to APPLY PANTS TO YOUR SITUATION.

Especially Taylor Momsen.

Um...you got really good at some video game, and the computer just assumed you were playing for money?

Yup, she's officially a teenager.

I, ah, don't suppose anyone on your friend list might be interested in buying some yarn? In my continuing efforts to fund the ArLis Conference, I'm selling some. And books. I still have books.

Sorry to spam like this. :)

So apparently I'm weird. I didn't actually read the text of the Chopin link you posted, but I did read the following sentence about claiming him for the tribe. My brain immediately said, "Chopin was jewish?".
