What a day for birthdays! Happy birthday to conuly, martinhesselius, mishakal, and unwilly!
Hello to new reader the_remedy!
Today's a two-doctor day - my yearly + bloodwork and my GI consult. So I won't be on much, and I'll likely be all "Grr! Argh!" because I'm going to get weighed at least once today and I really doubt I've gained any weight.
Things to remember
Told to me by a priestess last night: "It's not your job to save him from the Hunt." Also: "The only way Out is Up."
My Free Will Astrology: You've entered the most shadowy and enigmatic phase of your astrological cycle, which is why I think you're about to have a lot of interesting fun. You should look forward to your travels in the abyss with exuberant anticipation. Here are some guidelines to help you get the most out of the coming days. (1) Do the things that are hardest to do, but do them gladly and with grace, as if they were a great privilege. (2) Stay in intimate connection with your dark side, but don't let that turn into an endorsement of your dark side's fantasies. (3) Brainstorm about how to disarm and neutralize your adversaries without fighting them.
For my own reference:
Wednesday 4:00ish 5:00ish: phone with the Craftsman
Thursday lunch: arachne8. Arachne, want to meet me at Caribou? (I'm not staying at work for an extra 45 minutes!)
Thursday 3:00: Going to an appointment with museumfreak
Friday: kires arrives! Yay!
Yes, I somehow got busy this week. Weird.
Okay, y'know how I said I want the Hitachi Magic Wand and iPod speakers for my birthday? Changed my mind. Well, not really, but there's something I want more.
Rather, something I need. Because it's tiring to print out the story I'm working on, work on it longhand, go back home and write it, print out those pages, lather, rinse, repeat.
I need a laptop.
My parents won't buy me the whole thing - but they'll buy part of it. So. If any of you guys feel moved to get me a birthday present? Apple Store giftcards. Please.
Pictures of me in my corset - the thing y'all chipped in for for my last birthday - will be taken this weekend (photognome, just let me know when's good for you!).
