Happy birthday to rintrahroars and sinboy!

State of the 'Song
Same. Also, I dreamed last night that we moved into an even smaller house, that for some reason I hadn't had a chance to see before we signed the lease, and I was freaking out because there was no room for anything or anyone. I... will probably be having these dreams for the next few months. AWESOME.

Link Soup
* jimhines has a great post about writing about rape, which is much of what I've been saying for the past few years on the Take Back the Sci-Fi panels, in easily-linkable form!
* Why “Yes, But” Is the Wrong Response to Misogyny.
* 25 things writers should stop doing.
* Omniglot: Details of more than 180 writing systems, including Abjads, Alphabets, Abugidas, Syllabaries and Semanto-phonetic scripts, and information about over 500 languages.
* Truly outrageous Jem costume/character redesigns.
* I think Atlas Obscura just got trolled, y'all.

Plans
Calling my doctor. Writing. E-mailing people in desperation begging them to take a shift at the Backup Project table.

And I'm almost certain that China Mieville wrote a book about squid-worshipers along the way there...maybe that's what this is really all about.

Sea-punk is probably not a real thing.

Maybe not real, but still kinda awesome.

Given that I am not showing up until after work on the 13th, and have a panel at 19:00, Saturday I have panels at 13:00 and 22:00, Sunday at 11:30 and 14:30, and Monday at 11:30 (and would love to be on my way home ASAP on Monday), I can take a couple/few shifts. What do you need?
5th-Jan-2012 04:02 pm (UTC)
My greatest needs are the Saturday 2-4 and 4-6 and Sunday 12-2 and 4-6 shifts. I have no one for those! Friday is covered, and I have single-person coverage Saturday 12-2 and Sunday 10-12 and 2-4.

If it's okay to be a few minutes late, I can do Saturday, 2 to 6.

'Tis. Thank you! :)

Sign me up, then!

I almost missed the Yes But, except that caulay was talking about it and pointed me to your G+ post. It caused me many thinky thoughts.
5th-Jan-2012 04:03 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I need to get on the G+ thing; I was having a wretched and cope-free day yesterday.

So much fucking love for Ross Campbell.

Also, I think I might be the "friend who reviewed an episode" mentioned in Jim Hines' entry, which rather blows my mind.

I love the redesigns of Synergy, Rio, and the Misfits. But looking at Jem and the Holograms....um... too much hair, definitely not enough clothes.
