Rabbit rabbit!

Happy birthday to ivymcallister, spoothbrush, emily_goddess!

State of the 'Song
Still worn to the bone.

Change of Birthday Party
Already changed it on Facebook, but:

Due to my superslow recovery and immune system fuckery, and a bunch of you being borderline sick... I don't have the energy for Epic, and we won't have enough people for Epic.

So Saturday's party have been scaled down. Now it is a movie marathon where the theme seems to be "We love you, Jim Henson!" Also there will be lasagna and cake. And also more stuff, but I insist upon lasagna and cake.

And here is an advance date grab: July 9. Double epic birthday party - because sindrian and I are sharing our birthday this year!

Nerd Wars
My knitting tournament challenges of this month:
* Knitting in public and/or yarnbombing
* Demonstrating capillary action
* Knitting a shield
* Knitting something inspired by "in like a lion, out like a lamb"
* Polytech challenge: use two or more different crafts, only one of which need be fiber arts.

The last one, I need y'all's help on: WIP help. "Your challenge is to finish a WIP for someone who can no longer do it themselves, from age, injury, or illness." Anyone local need a hand?

Daily Science
By working with Canadians of French ancestry who suffer a rare genetic disease, researchers have discovered how three genes contribute to abnormal growth, making a breakthrough that will improve our understanding of many disorders such as foetal and childhood growth retardation, abnormal development of body parts and cancer.

I'm going back to work today. I'd like to go to Diesel, but I'm not confident I'll feel well enough. Will update on that after work. EDIT: Yeah, I do not have the energy.

Thank you! For reasons that I am not yet disclosing, this could be an epically happy birthday.

"Your challenge is to finish a WIP for someone who can no longer do it themselves, from age, injury, or illness."

I really like that.

So Saturday is movies but no play?
1st-Mar-2011 02:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah. :( Too many people are borderline sick; we have less than half a cast!

We can reschedule it for another time you'll be in town!
1st-Mar-2011 03:18 pm (UTC) - *sigh*
So much for Sebastian :(
1st-Mar-2011 03:20 pm (UTC) - Re: *sigh*
We *will* do it another time, I promise! It's one of my favorites. We just don't have enough people this time. :(

I really like the knitting the WIP for someone else challenge. Do you mind if I share that with FB friends?

Also, hee, I like the idea of watching Henson on your bday. (Labyrinth being my fav movie, followed by Dark Crystal and Fraggle Rock. And the Muppet Show.

I hope you have an excellent bday!

Continue to get well, please.

Where is this on Facebook? I generally get lost if someone tells me to find something there, without a URL. (I looked at your Wall already.)

Your entry made me laugh. Literally right before I came to LJ, I thought to myself Rabbit Rabbit.

Dr. Mark Samuels of the University of Montreal's Department of Medicine and the Sainte-Justine University Hospital Research Centre

I know that guy!

(well, I've met him)

Aww, no play -- do I keep my dibs for the reschedule?

I love Jim Henson movies and will remain pleased to celebrate with you. Also, please advise re: 'song-safe meltable chocolate. I can always make a cocoa-and-simple-syrup coating if I have to, but I assume you'd like CHOCOLATE.
1st-Mar-2011 03:49 pm (UTC)
Yeah, you can keep dibs. :)

AS for chocolate I do not know! Must research.

Yarn bombing?

Mention of muppets and your house still make me nervous. *eyes your husband.* o.O

An evening of Jim Henson sounds like a darn excellent birthday. (I had one of those 2 years ago -- both sweeties took me out to see 2 hrs of jim henson rare clips on the big screen followed by The Muppet Movie on the big screen followed by Jim Henson Foundation Q&A. The muppetfest actually followed dinner/dessert at Max Brenner's Chocolate by the Bald Man restaurant, which *may* have increased the squee level at the later muppet-fest. Maybe.) :)

Have fun!

Actually, my neck injury has kept me from finishing my Appa hat. It's ridiculously simple and the yarn is cheap (it's my first try at intarsia and I didn't want to break the bank), but you're welcome to it.
1st-Mar-2011 10:56 pm (UTC)
Sounds both good and geeky! Let me know when you're feeling well and we can meet up. :)

I keep-on forgetting about Rabbit, Rabbit till I'm reading your posts.

What does WIP stand for?
