Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to maltor!

Cautious optimism continues. Perhaps it'll be warm enough later to take a walk.

Oh hey, more publication!
My poem "Twelve" is up at Cabinet des Fees. I hope you like it. This is what happens when I'm poking around in fairy tales and see princesses who sleep all day and party all night and heyyyy, wait a minute...

I stopped reading this whole thing ages ago, just because I have not had the time to invest in it - it's a full-time job keeping up with this! - and it's always an unpleasant shock when Adam says "Oh, look what X posted."

While I get my thoughts together on this, I will say that I agree with RoseFox. Follow the links from her LJ for a good understanding of what's going on.

EDIT: And this. Please to be reading.

Link Soup
* New shinies at Sihaya09's Etsy!
* ViewMasters are being discontinued! No!
* I want a little felt Baba Yaga house, please.
* Fan video of the opening credits of the wholly imaginary but now very necessary Watchmen Saturday morning cartoon.

Daily Science
A man who lost his sight 30 years ago says he can now see flashes of light after being fitted with a bionic eye...He says he can now follow white lines on the road, and even sort socks, using the bionic eye, known as Argus II.

Plans
I *absolutely* have to write the thing about interstitiality today. Also have to clean up around here - at least four houseguests arrive tomorrow. In between that, we'll see if the Telenias and Katrina have let me go enough for me to write "Maxfield Parrish Blue", which has been poking my brain since late December.

Requesting website assistance

I want to redo shiralipkin.com, with the cover of Wind Tunnel Dreams as the primary graphic; also I want it on Wordpress rather than Drupal.

I am beyond clueless, and would consider it an awesome birthday gift if someone could help me make this happen.

“You may encounter many defeats,
but you must not be defeated.
In fact,
it may be necessary to encounter the defeats,
so you can know who you are,
what you can rise from,
how you can still come out of it.”

-- Maya Angelou

It's like a big hug.

I am sitting at my table reading one friend's story, listening to music another sent me, wearing jewelry another made me.

You are always with me, really. And it makes me smile.

You know what we haven't done in a while?

FRIENDING FRENZY.

If you want more LJ readers, post a little something about yourself and your journal in comments! If you want to be reading more nifty people, check out the comments and friend people!

(This is also a good way for me to figure out who you are; I don't always get the chance to investigate on my own, so help me out!)

Dear jdotmi,

Thank you again for the Once More With Feeling soundtrack. So saith Elayna, who is watching the episode right now, saying "Dude, can I get this on my iTunes?"

Thanks!
