says: "I'm trying to signal-boost my availability as someone who has gotten a BRCA+ diagnosis, had the prophylactic surgeries, and is willing to talk about it to just about anyone at any stage in the process. (Long story short: BRCA is a genetic mutation which puts one at a high risk of breast and ovarian cancer). I'm not looking for money or sympathy, I'm just trying to find a way to put myself forward."

* If you have any ideas for literature panels for Arisia 2012, please tell me! We're starting the process of putting panel ideas in the system. As always, there are some ideas from the brainstorming list and some that I've picked up during the year, but I always like to have the broadest possible scope and not just have a track of Stuff shadesong
* Hey New Yorkers! If you're interested in dinner with me and sindrian

* My week:
Wednesday: Torbutt's X-rays, chores/errands with Adam, dinner with mangosteen
Thursday: writing, recording "The Changeling's Lament" at slipjig
's, As You Like It

I'm trying to decide whether I'm going to the End of Summer party. The six months sindrian
was in Cincinnati, I had little pangs of "he should be here" at every big community gathering, and I wonder if EoS would be a lot of that + hours of being On. I suspect I'll make a decision day-of based on how up I'm feeling for social interaction. Either way, Elayna's going.
What are y'all up to?
