Happy birthday to camillealexa, littlebuhnee, and holme!

Happy early birthday to rikibeth, nihilistic_kid, and aaronace, who advance a year over the weekend!

Hello to new reader kschap!

State of the 'Song
I got a nap yesterday for the first time in ages yay. I think it helped. It also helps that it's going to hit 50 today.

Elayna has been chattering nonstop for 15 minutes, which makes me unable to concentrate on what I want to post, so I wait. And wait.

And I wait. Dear gods child do you not have school to go to? (Adam is home unusually late, so she's talking at him.)

Anyway.

Unrelated
BARCC tables at a lot of performances of the Vagina Monologues. So much so that I am pretty sure I know all of the monologues by heart now. I should do this at parties.

Daily Science
This is kinda huge: Rewrite the textbooks: Findings challenge conventional wisdom of how neurons operate.

Friday Memeage
Wearing: Black cowlneck long-sleeved shirt! Not a sweater! With jeans, and will top with red wool sweatercoat. Not winter coat!
Reading: Still the phosphorus book, plus also Midnight Riot by Ben Aaronovitch.
Writing: Shayara.
Knitting: Baby blanket for hammercock and trowa_barton; Hemlock Ring full-size blanket. Hemlock Ring is my dissertation project for Nerd Wars. It will take a while.
Planning: Adam is home from work today, but I trust him to give me writing time. So hopefully I'll get writing time after work. Game night at a friend's tonight.
Tomorrow: Afternoon/evening party if I can get a ride, then dinner-and-karaoke birthday festivities for a friend.
Sunday: Going up to Wyrding Studios with feste_sylvain to either tidy the studio or hold the baby so kythryne can tidy the studio, whichever works better.

You?

I am imagining a one-person Eve Ensler (other than Eve Ensler) and it's an amusing thought.

You have a leaking tag after "knitting", btw.,

wearing: magenta tie-dye and Hello Kitty PJ pants (will be changing); BPAL's The Lion
reading: Swallowing Darkness by LKH
writing: LJ and FetLife posts; poetry
planning: making a cherry pie for wanderingghost, since he let slip last week that that was his weakness; going out to dinner and the dungeon tonight.

That thing with self-stimulating axons? Yeah, that is kinda huge. Thanks for the link. I somehow missed it yesterday in my usual science blog gleanings.

In addition to what it says about epilepsy, it also has meaning for Alzheimers research, though I didn't see mention of that in the article.

I can give you a ride if you would like to afternoon and evening events.

I find it helpful to have someone along with me.

Awesome! Thank you!

What time will I see you tonight?

Hey, sorry, I've been away from my desk a lot today.

Looks like I will get out of here close to 5pm if not shortly thereafter. I will most likely stop on the way to your place to pick up beverages. You will probably see me around 6-6:15.

If it is going to be later than that, I will ping you on my phone.

I am guessing that you being on the list of Broad Universe readers for tonight is an error?

Yep - can't afford cons I'm not on programming at! I've e-mailed Jen...

Cool. I just wanted to be sure I was right to leave you off the flyer. Our reading shall be poorer for your absence, but I totally understand.

Hope you had a great reading!

I'm wakingdreaming's girlfriend. :) I check your LJ periodically and decided to add you finally!

Making double-sure you see rm's entry about bullying that's happened in Buffy fandom:

I hope you're having a good weekend.
