Sell You All for Experiments

Tew's Day

Administration
Happy birthday toysabetwordsmith!

Hello to new readers maxymyllyn and ogre42!

Medical
Can it stop being grey achy days now plz?

Shayara
New content- new front page and a little slice of backstory. No art, alas.

April Fool's Day
...is a "holiday" I do not practice, as I've never been able to think up a prank that wouldn't actually hurt someone. So. Rest assured, no foolin' from me today.

Crap.
Um. $500 miscellaneous account + $270 bus transport on top of the $1,500 we already had to raise. So. Total amount? $4295.00. *whimper* Okay. We have $2,000 from the grandparents. We have about $900 from you guys for WTD, and about $200 so far from the BPAL sale. So. That's about $1200 we need to raise. By May 1.

This better be the best damn experience of her life.

Anyone wanna buy Barbies? Collage pendants? SRSLY.

Explo Courses
We have her list of courses!

First session: Actor's Workshop & Just for Kicks (martial arts); mini-courses Musical Theater and Stage Combat.
Second session: Eco-Logic * Konnichiwa (her #1 choice!); mini-courses Swimming and Tennis.

Is no link soup today, because I am tired and kinda bitchslapped with that extra $770. We better get that tax refund with a quickness.

Time for some thrilling heroics.

WTD

I am rescheduling April's Wind Tunnel Dreams.

a) Donor fatigue; y'all just paid for a bonus WTD series.
b) 'song fatigue; I just wrote a bonus WTD series. ;)

And I have so much to do in so little time, since I'll be AFK Friday through the following Sunday; I already have to write next week's Shayara (along with the rest of this week's) over the next two days, while I'm packing for FL, doing retreat planning, doing camp planning, doing WisCon planning, packing and shipping BPAL, doctor's appointment, et cetera...

So for my sanity and yours: Wind Tunnel Dreams will resume on April 15.

I just have to ask.

(Also, the barometric pressure is killing me. Need more Robaxin plz.)

* On the bright side, I can has books to review! The Prime Books reprint of Black Thorn, White Rose, co-edited by and courtesy of ellen_datlow (beautiful new cover - I never did like Canty), and The Duke in His Castle, by and courtesy of norilana. And just found out that I scored a free copy of either The New Space Opera or The Yiddish Policemen's Union, and either one is more than fine by me. Also, the new issues of Apex Digest and Weird Tales have landed. Airplane reading! (I wish my Kindle would arrive...)

* Will not be at Diesel tonight, as I am cranky and my everything hurts, and you would not want to deal with me right now, seriously. feste_sylvain will come over. We will watch a movie. *nod*

* Locals who want to buy BPAL from me should come over tomorrow night. emilytheslayer's doin' it. She's one of the cool kids, right? Pick over the bins of rejected BPAL! Help me pack stuff!

* Also, I am not obsessively listening to Green Day. I'm listening to music on the other computer. This just gets filled in automatically.

* I set up a get-Elayna-to-Explo meter so I can see how much I have yet to earn. Nyargh.

...hi.
