Knowing is half the battle

Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to mslaynie!

Medical
Celebrex continues to actually work. Here's hoping my sample packs hold out til the insurance company's authorization comes through.

Allergist appointment today!

Blogathon
For those who missed last night's hasty notice - Blogathon.org's e-mail is full of flawed links, things that take you to their internal "page not found" thing. Fear not! Click here!

That'll take you right to BARCC's donation page. Please to be clicking and fulfilling your pledge. Please to be writing "Blogathon" or "S. Lipkin - Blogathon" (not Shadesong!) in the dedication area.

Sending me your receipt is appreciated (it makes me squee!), but not necessary - unless you won a photo from kungfoogirl, in which case please send us a copy. The totals from that haven't been added into my Grand Total yet, because I don't know what they are. *laugh*

Auctions
Two still up, both for beautiful necklaces by thisdaydreamer! Click here to shop! They end tomorrow morning.

I mailed the Wearable Sculpture pieces to the winners yesterday; the parasol, book, paintings, and necklace are all coming directly from their respective creators.

Quote of the Day
"It's a wonder I haven't abandoned all my ideals, they seem so absurd and impractical. Yet I cling to them because I still believe, in spite of everything, that people are truly good at heart."
--Anne Frank

Last night's date
I am in full schmoop. Also,it has again been noted that, in sleep,I take up much more bed space than is theoretically possible.

Tonight's date
*bounce* *bounce*

No link soup or fragrance testing today, I'm afraid...

Daily Science
Viscosity!

Plans
Shower. Allergist. Back her for excursively to pick up his laptops? Call parents to nail down dates and remind them of EJ's homework and flute practice. Date!

Zoom!
Everyone here is a crazy person.

Midafternoon miscellany

* Only 11 days til I see Elayna again! *squee* *'songboogie* I wonder how much taller she is. I wonder how *tan* she is. I wonder how blonde her hair's gotten.

I have been missing her so much.

* No allergist today. Allergist tomorrow. They screwed up the days - they booked me for the 2nd, they sent me a confirmation package that says "8/2", and yet they wrote me in the book for the 3rd. So. I thought I was actually going to get one day this week just to myself. But no. And they weren't even in the office - thank goodness I had Elayna's cellphone.

* So on the way home, rather than fume impotently at the scheduling gods - I stopped at Beaver Brook Reservation, a place I'd noticed on the way to the allergist. And just grabbed my camera and my backpack and roamed... ended up sitting on a shaded, comfy rock for a while and reading a book of poetry and short-short stories.

* So I'm achy from running around. *facepalm* But I will be okay. It was worth it.

* Date tonight, yay. :) I have to see if they require code names, or can just be referred to openly. :)
