Happy birthday to vylar_kaftan
Happy early birthday to laliari
, and my beloved sindrian
, who all advance a year over the weekend!State of the 'Song
Mostly got sleep last night. Been crashing out all afternoon most of the week.I don't want to go in the cart.
Today's the last day of the dayjob. Predictably, I have mixed feelings. Working from home, focusing on writing and the other projects I have going on, will be good for me, and I'll get to work around my body's needs. I will feel and function better. But parts of it still feel like failure, and I have some self-directed anger. But there are so many things I want and need to do, and I've already started some cool stuff in anticipation, and it will
be good. But I have to get through work today, which includes a farewell party that I shall do my best not to get maudlin at.
And there are other reasons, but they're not yet for public consumption.Kickstarter!
Is at $4,626. Help us get to $5K today!Link Soup
