Odin's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to pixelfish!

Medical
Oh, I was overly optimistic yesterday.

Snot goblins are spreading. They are now in my head as well as my chest. So I am a snuffly coughy mess. With shortness of breath. Fun!

Valentine's Day
I'm with ktpinto here. Great pic!

Plants die and are cat toys. Chocolate, I should have only in moderation; I really need to eat healthier. (I wouldn't say no to something healthy + yummy.)

I like words. I like stuff-you-made.

My Birthday
Again, what I like best is stuff-you-made; it is most special to me, most treasured. If you don't make stuff and/or want to buy me stuff, my Amazon and not-Amazon wishlists are on my sidebar. Nonmaterial wishlist: someone to give a little project-based help around the house.

Read This!
Judas meets... well, I won't give anything away.

Half Sick of Shadows is dulcinbradbury's Wind Tunnel Dreams. This round, she's giving half the proceeds to s00j.

Publishers Weekly Needs Reviewers!
Quoth rosefox: "I'm surprised to find that I'm a little short on reviewers, especially for mass market romance (of all kinds, from historical to paranormal) and thrillers. I also seem to have misplaced a bunch of emails from people who wrote to me the last time I put an ad out, so if you applied before and haven't heard from me, please feel free to apply again.

At this point I am only looking for people who have already done a lot of nonfiction writing, preferably book or movie reviewing, and are familiar and comfortable with the editorial process, small wordcounts (I ask for 180-200 words and edit them down to about 145), and tight deadlines. The pay is $25 per review and I generally send each reviewer about one book every two weeks, though if I bring on many more reviewers that may stretch to one book every three or four weeks.

If you know anyone who would be interested in reviewing SF/F/H or mass market titles for PW, please ask them to email rose.fox@reedbusiness.com with a summary of their professional nonfiction writing experience."

Daily Science
Insulin appears to shield the brain from toxic proteins associated with Alzheimer's disease, U.S. researchers said on Monday, supporting a theory that Alzheimer's may be a third form of diabetes.

Plans
Resting.

March 15 amuses me. I had not known she'd titled it that. *laugh*

The special guest vocalist on the 15th? Birthday girl Elayna, who won a talent show a few years back with her rendition of "Shipful of Monsters". This time, what will she sing? Come and see!

Birthday

I will be celebrating my birthday like so:

Sunday birthday brunch at Boskone for me and tigerbright.
Birthday party at Wicked Faire - hughcasey is organizing that, I think?

My birthday-party weekend is March 7-8. Watch this space for more info as I have it.

PSA

If we had tentative coffee or movie or lunch plans, those plans will not become a reality for the foreseeable future. I'm no longer feverish, which is awesome - but I can't walk across the room without coughing and/or feeling week and shaky. So going out is just not going to happen until I get better. Given my body, I have no idea when that will be. So give me... let's say a week? before even trying to make plans with me. 'k? 'k.

Needed: One (1) NYC art space/venue that does not suck.

Galapagos Art Space is unprofessional.

Y'all can feel free to get the Googlebomb rolling on that.

Basically, they have cancelled on s00j and catvalente's Palimpsest release party a mere 21 days before the event. For no reason that they will give. Other than "Sorry, someone else wanted it."

I'm sure there are words for how ludicrously rude and unprofessional this is, but for the moment, I am speechless.

So.

How can you guys help?

They need a performance space, STAT. This is for February 25. The space should have a stage and room for a few acts, and should be able to hold a large audience.

Nexus powers activate, y0. Find a space! Help make this happen! Give info here.
