Cobblestone street

Odin's Day

Cautiously optimistic. Yesterday was mostly sedentary, with a few nice walks at the end of it.

Post About Islam
Has had a thread frozen. This is the first time I've ever had to freeze a thread, I think. Note to readers: if the lies you're spouting read like Nazi propaganda if you replace "Islam" with "Judaism", maybe you have a problem.

Elayna's heard so much on both sides about Twilight that she felt she had to read the book and decide for herself. So far, she declares that Edward has multiple personalities and Bella has no personality at all. I'll ask her for a fuller review when she's done. (We need to get our family review site up and running! I owe a couple of people reviews.)

I have a maddeningly busy few days coming up. I may be out of the house *all day* today, from 9 to 9. Will have to haul my computer with me, so I can get stuff done between getting stuff done. Tomorrow's less crazy, with only one out-of-the-house thing, but tomorrow I have to pack. And Friday-Sunday, of course, is my trip.

Leavin' on a Jet Plane
Can anyone give me & Miss Kid a ride to the airport? Friday, 'round 11 AM?

Florida Friends!
The sole opening in my schedule is Friday evening.

Daily Science
Cracking the secrets of the atmosphere of Titan, Saturn’s mysterious moon, and how planetary atmospheres evolve, have come a step closer after evaluation of data from a successful fly-by of its surface by the Cassini spacecraft.

Researchers and engineers on the Cassini project, which includes teams from UCL Space and Climate Physics and UCL Mullard Space Science Laboratory (MSSL), were also given a glimpse of how Titan, which has no magnetic field of its own, holds onto remnants of Saturn’s magnetic field as it caught the big moon on one of its excursions outside Saturn's magnetosphere.

Graeme Base reading/signing at Porter Square Books, Interstitial Arts Foundation: Boston Chapter inaugural planning meeting, BARCC Survivor Speakers Bureau meeting. These are all spread out a few hours apart from each other, so I'll be wandering the city and finding places to sit and read or write between things. Also have to pick up my meds. Am not sanguine about the fact that I won't get to see my kid this afternoon, but it just doesn't make sense to train-and-bus back here to spend an hour or two and then bus back to Central Square. :(

Question for Bostonians:

Restaurant in Central Square, can seat 10-15 in a separate or separate-ish room. Ideas?

EDIT: Also, if you want to do dinner with me in Central Square tonight, ping me!
