Thor's Day

Administration
Happy birthday to my favorite monkey ever, murnkay!

Hello to new reader sabrina_il!

State of the 'Song
Better for some sleep. Yesterday was a stressmonkey day.

Volunteer Training
Is all next week, and I may write something up about what that process is like, for me and for the volunteers. But not right now.

StrowlerCon
The hotel code wasn't working, but it's back now. You should go register you room today!

What Do You Need?
My "what do you need?" post is still going strong, and catvalente has one up now too!

What I need right now is a dinner buddy, or a few dinner buddies, for Restaurant Week next week. (Also to figure out what non-blanket project to knit next.)

Link Soup
* Hello Kitty Doc Martens. Of course I must have these. So must murnkay.
* mikemarano is teaching his "Writing the Smart Page-Turner" class again this fall. Genre writers, sign up!
* Gluten-free gift baskets. I love that they have gluten-free + soy-free!
* Better Book Titles.
* Wil quits w00tstock. With bonus Paul & Storm and Adam Savage!

Daily Science
Astronomers using NASA's Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) have found the first fast X-ray pulsar to be eclipsed by its companion star. Further studies of this unique stellar system will shed light on some of the most compressed matter in the universe and test a key prediction of Einstein's relativity theory.

Plans
Work, home, and I really hope I don't require a nap, because I have *so much to do*. Packing for PiCon, org stuff for StrowlerCon, piles of miscellaneous stuff. No plans tonight save doing more of said stuff.
