But it feels like Wednesday. Why does it feel like Wednesday?

State of the 'Song
Having a late start, but otherwise fine.

State of the Victoria
She has her appetite back! And she is mewing most pitifully to be released from her imprisonment.

New on kittycyborg: one-hour massage session!

Knitting
Have discovered that I just really hate DPNs, or that there's something about the way I'm distributing stitches that's suboptimal. I may need a Knitting Grownup for this. In the meantime, there's always magic loop.

Link Soup
* Adam interviewed Vernor Vinge!
* Big DIY: The Year the Maker Movement Broke, and Paul Graham Raven's response.
* ktempest has an excellent post here about communities dealing with rape and sexual assault by members of the community. (I've been following this particular case, but I have lacked the spoons to say anything coherent. All I can really say still is that I believe Jack.)

Daily Science
Hot on the heels of confirming one Kepler planet, the Hobby-Eberly Telescope announces the confirmation of another planet. Another observatory, the Nordic Optical Telescope, confirms its first Kepler planet as well, this one as part of a binary system and providing new insights that may force astronomers to revisit and revise estimations on properties of other extrasolar planets.

Plans
Jinkies, I have a lot to do and not a lot of time. Most important things = some travel arrangements and another author bio, a few things that've been sitting in my inbox, getting Elayna on a schedule to do stuff other than hang out online all day, hopefully kickstarting my writerbrain. I may or may not go to Diesel; I suspect that'll depend on if sindrian decides to go. And how much I get done before time-to-go-if-I'm-going.

I have, over the years, bought multiple sets of DPNs for various reasons. Usually, as use for hair sticks. Magic Loop alllll the way!

Yeah, I was going to say :)

magic loop is the way! Bonus: you never have to worry about about dropping a DPN on the bus and never seeing it again.

1] It feels like Wednesday to me, too, but then again I constantly live in the future, which makes me lose hold of what day I'm actually in.

2] Apropos for the constant "time-versus-things-to-do" juggling act that you, I, and many we know are always beset by, here's wise words from cbpotts... "You can not fight time, you know, but you can lose less in every battle".

DPNs are tough. Whether four or five is best very much depends on your knitting style and how big your hands are relative to the needles. There are also a whole bunch of different ways to hold the needles, especially if you're using five.

I wish!

Which reminds me that I'd been going to ask you if you could help me go through my BPAL this past weekend so I can auction stuff - I have a lot to go, but the magnitude of the collection is intimidating! But I forgot. Another time, maybe?

That is a great idea!

All I can really say still is that I believe Jack.

Even that means a lot.

I wish I had the spoons/bandwidth to post more in-depth stuff, but I am so tapped out and painfully burned out right now. But know that I believe Jack and support you two.

Livejournal keeps going down. Is Kittycyborg also posted elsewhere for people who keep trying to see but cannot?
