Rabbit rabbit!

Happy birthday to ivymcallister and spoothbrush!

Hello to new readers splash_the_cat and zombie_dog!

A bit tired, but less achy than yesterday. I have not gotten feste_sylvain's ick.

Birthday Week OMG
Tuesday (aka Actual Birthday), I will be at Diesel. Hug me! Don't know yet if I'll do dinner at Sabur, Namaskar, or Stone Hearth.
Wednesday: Skating party! More about that in another post.
Thursday: Robots in SF and Anime colloquium at MIT; this one's the most malleable, if I need a chill day.
Friday: Alice in Wonderland!
Saturday: Midsummer Night's Dream in the afternoon, gaming and geek movie marathon in the evening!
Sunday: Moar movies, probably.

I have to bake a cake Wednesday. I was going to get one from our local gluten-free bakery, but it would be at least $80, and I don't know how much I'm going to recoup on rink rental, so no.

RSVP for my festivities!

Concert OMG
So much fun. And I danced my ass off. (Don't worry, I got it back.) aquila_dominus, cluegirl, feste_sylvain, jenphalian, and lbitw are fantastic concert buddies.

Daily Science
New research has identified four aspects of immune system disturbance which lead to the development of coeliac disease. Nearly 40 different inherited risk factors which predispose to the disease have now been identified. These latest findings could speed the way towards improved diagnostics and treatments for the autoimmune complaint that affects 1 in 100 of the population, and lead to insights into related conditions such as type 1 diabetes.

Work. Lunch with mangosteen. Taking kid for passport (thanks for advice) and running in-town errands. Getting the house ready, because squee! enderfem arrives Wednesday! <3 <3 <3

My week is pretty tightly scheduled, because of plans out the wazoo and out-of-town guests and everything. So please, it is doubly important that if I have plans with you, you not back out or change said plans at the last minute, because that throws everything off and I probably cannot fit you in anywhere else til late March. And if you need some just-me time, it is unlikely to happen this week, because aforementioned stuff *and* I need to preserve some writing time *and* I need to work on the LARP for Elayna's birthday *and* my parents will be here next week. So yeah. But group hanging-out is good. See party stuff and Alice in Wonderland. I <3 you! I just have a lot going on.

Will post skating-party post in a bit to give further info and work on setting up rides for the carless. *nod*

Roller skating, whee!

[Facebook invite here.]

So! Roller skating! Wednesday night, 7pm-9pm! Roller World in Saugus! Directions are here! Exclamation point!

Thing is, Roller World is not tremendously T-accessible, and so we have people who need rides. This, darlings, is the place to find them. Well, this and the Facebook invite's wall.

So if you have space in your car, or if you require a ride, please comment below and we'll get you matched up! Do please note where you're coming from to make matching-up easier so I'm not pairing people from Davis Square with people from Melrose or anything. We like easy and convenient. :)

I may or may not have one space in my backseat. Depends if felisdemens is with us. Will update when certain. My car so far = me, Adam, Elayna, and enderfem, leaving from Watertown.

EDIT: I forgot to mention, but Adam remembered: If you would like to chip in for the rink rental as your birthday gift to me? That would be greatly appreciated!
Alice: World of my own


Nyargh. Google and Fandango don't have any movie times or locations listed at all for Friday.

So. With some digging. The only theater Adam can find in the greater Boston area that isn't showing Alice in 3D (which my brain doesn't process) in the Somerville Theater in Davis Square.

Showtimes are 5:00, 7:30, 10:00. I vote for 7:30, and maybe dinner at Namaskar first. Thoughts, o Friday 'songparty attendees?
