Happy birthday to grntserendipity!

Happy early birthday to australian_joe and terri_osborne, who advance a year over the weekend!

Hello to new readers angel_vixen, blaze_villain cordilleran2, and lavenderfae9!

State of the 'Song
Okay, tickets said 8pm. First opening band was not actually scheduled to go on til 9:30. Dragonette came on at 11:30. I was not expecting that. It's a good thing I caught a nap yesterday, because otherwise I'd be even less functional than usual.

Inbox spinning out of control again. Must sit down when I get home and sort all of the to-dos from the "what do you need" post, and highlight stuff like jobs and places to live.

No Link Soup
Because my computer required restarting and failed to retain my wifi password, and only Adam has it, so I'm stuck on Elayna's.Hopefully Adam can get it to me by the time I get home from work?

Daily Science
Astronomers using NASA's Fermi Gamma-ray Space Telescope have detected gamma-rays from a nova for the first time, a finding that stunned observers and theorists alike. The discovery overturns the notion that novae explosions lack the power to emit such high-energy radiation.

Friday Memeage!
Wearing: Grey top with interesting neckline, periwinkle skirt with grey polka dots and trim.
Reading: Ares Express by Ian McDonald, Objects of Worship by Claude Lamuliere.
Writing: Oh honey. I have been out of the house and actively busy from 8am-9pm almost every day this week. Yeah, no progress there.
Knitting: Still poking my way through baby blanket, but really there's been no time. :(
Today is a verra busy workday. This afternoon is almost certainly naptime. This evening, watch my daughter in The Winter's Tale.
Saturday: Tabling for BARCC 12:30-2:30 at the Girls Summit! Stop by if you're around, especially if you are, or have, a teenage girl. Might see Scott Pilgrim after that. No evening plans yet. I'd like to go to Heroes - anyone amenable?
Sunday: ariesd's memorial. A friend's party that evening if I have the energy; I expect the memorial to tap me out a bit.
