Katchoo - Terry Moore

Had my first asthma attack in years this morning.

Need to call the doctor; need to get to an allergist. Yes.

Took Benadryl, which helped a bit. But now I'm exhausted. Gotta get the kid to *her* allergist and home. And then I can sleep.

We will return to your regularly-scheduled Shadesong later.

Happy birthday to correspondguy and willshetterly!

Hello to new reader atricilla!

Still rattled and wrung out, but okay. (Hugh, the attack had stopped before I got home.) Unfortunately, I slept through Elayna's allergist appointment. *headdesk*

Freewill Astrology
William Henry Harrison died in 1841, just a month after he'd been inaugurated as U.S. president. When a messenger went to Vice-President John Tyler to inform him he had ascended to the highest office in the land, Tyler was down on his knees playing a game of marbles. I'm guessing there'll be a similar scenario in your immediate future, Pisces. Big magic may come to visit you while you're in a lowly position. Or maybe an imposing invitation will arrive while you're in a humble situation.

* Trailer for Darwyn Cooke's New Frontier animated movie.
* 13 of the worst fake accents on film.
* "Morphable bed". That does look comfy.

Daily Science
Experts expect an announcement within three to 10 years from someone in the now little-known field of "wet artificial life."... That first cell of synthetic life — made from the basic chemicals in DNA — may not seem like much to non-scientists. For one thing, you'll have to look in a microscope to see it. "Creating protocells has the potential to shed new light on our place in the universe," Bedau said. "This will remove one of the few fundamental mysteries about creation in the universe and our role." And several scientists believe man-made life forms will one day offer the potential for solving a variety of problems, from fighting diseases to locking up greenhouse gases to eating toxic waste.

...I read too much dystopian SF to view this as a 100% good idea...

Make allergist appointment. Make sure house is ready for Shakespeare thing. Pack for trip to Cape!

Late-afternoon Miscellany

* I've been playing the core-me playlist on my iPod for feste_sylvain, on the long drives to and from his house. Haven't listened to all of these songs together in some time. Conclusion: I made this list when I was an angrier person. *rueful laugh* I've added some stuff to it recently, but not a lot. Need to make it more reflective of my current state of mind. (In my copious spare time.) Not deleting anything from the playlist, because it's all part of me; can't have present-me without past-me.

* There will be no morning post/picture post tomorrow or Friday; we'll be leaving for the Cape way early in the morning, and I just won't have time.

* Plans for Cape: lunch and tour of labs with atricilla tomorrow. Don't know what my aunt has planned for Friday-Sunday... we'll probably wander around Woods Hole (I haven't been there in over 20 years, save for my uncle's funeral, and it was such a formative place!), go to the beach... nap. :) I'm going to try to keep from jumping on the computer and Organizing Things (Girl Scout stuff, house concerts, visits, et cetera). Going to try to make this an actual vacation.

* Regarding phone numbers: I will probably never call you. I hate the phone. :) But Just In Case, it's good to have contact info.
