Tew's Day aka MAH BIRFDAY

Administration
Happy birthday to ME! And also shugenja and ladysea! And Dr. Seuss and Jon Bon Jovi!

Medical
Doin' fine. Still no ick from the boyfriend.

Giftage So Far
Elayna has not bought my gift yet. Woe! But Adam got me a gorgeous necklace from our favorite local shop and a honey bath bomb and some undisclosed stuff that he has yet to present to me, and his mom sent birthday money, and my birthmom sent a gift certificate to my massage place. :)

My Birthday Wish
On April 11, I'm doing the BARCC Walk for Change.

What do I want for my birthday? I want you to sponsor me!

And you should join Team Venture and walk with us if you are local, because we are awesome.

Link Soup
* Life with 'song and Adam. And Victoria.
* Actual candidate for office in England thinks purse theft is more traumatic than rape. Because women like sex. I AM FOR SERIOUS. Read that.
* March is Deep Vein Thrombosis Awareness Month. Read Sterling's terrifying story.
* Amanda Palmer = still a bitch. I'm sure you're shocked.
* Welcome to Lambda Literary. Awesome!

Daily Science
For feste_sylvain: Physicist writes a better formula to predict baseball success.

Plans
Work, lunch (location TBD). Finding a place to write and writing comma dammit. I want to do Diesel tonight; I also want to be home in time to get some family hangout time in. *decisive nod*

It's my birthday. Make a wish.

Some of you may be as yet unaware of this, but - I have super awesome birthday powers. (So far today, I have used my powers to give Boston awesome weather. You're welcome.)

Yes! I do! On every birthday! But this birthday is TRIPLE AWESOME.

Because it is the Year of the Tiger, and I am a Tiger.

Because I am square.

Because I am double chai.

So this year... not only do my wishes come true. Yours do, too.

Yes! You get a birthday wish! On my birthday! SPECIAL BONUS. Also, your wish comes true even if you tell people what it is, so feel free to do so in comments.

*lights a candle on a cupcake and holds it out to you with both hands*

Make a wish. :)

Via lawbabeak, who says "Bottom line: battered woman who hired someone to kill her batterer is sentenced to death. Her appeals have been exhausted, and an execution date could soon be set.":

Gretchen Swift and I represent Gaile Owens, a battered woman who is facing execution in Tennessee. Gaile's case is currently pending before the Tennessee Supreme Court on a Motion to Set Execution Date. The order setting the date could come down at any moment. A clemency effort is underway and our Governor already has a petition before him. A website on behalf of Gaile went live yesterday. I am writing to ask each of you to visit the website and sign the online petition, if you are so moved. Also, please consider posting the website to your facebook or myspace pages. Forward the site to anyone who you think would be interested. Thank you.
