Thor's Day

Administration
Happy Birthday to ahf!

Hello to new reader shooflypie!

State of the 'Song
Woke up at 3 yesterday. >.< But I appear to have gotten a semi-decent amount of sleep last night. Yes, I need to call my damn doctor.

Holiday Follies So Far
So far, everything is the wrong color or too big. Everything I'm getting, anyway. Except the waffle-maker from Adam. Everyone seems perfectly delighted with the stuff I'm giving them, so yay on that front, at least. Elayna has been squeaking and embracing everything. We're giving her all of her Chanukah gifts during the first three nights, because she'll then be with my birthfamily for the next three and then with my parents for the last few, so she won't be deprived.

Thank you for the knitting patterns, ginskye and lessthanthree!

Daily Science
Multiple Sclerosis is a metabolic disorder. Read Nicola's whole post for the implications!

Plans
I only have about two hours of writing time today, so I gotta grab that. Otherwise: the making of a big to-do list, some baking, packing up stuff to be exchanged, and, when Elayna gets home, helping her pack for her trip.
