Hello to new reader booksbynight!
Well, there's no one here to talk to, so I don't yet know if I can sustain a conversation without a coughing fit. My feet are being difficult. Otherwise... hm. A bit better than yesterday.
You guys are freakin' amazing.
Me, last night: "...people are still sending me monies."
Adam: "You told them you have what you need for hosting, right?"
Me: "Yes! But they keep sending monies!"
I'm not complaining, mind you. I just thought I'd be flogging the sponsorship thing for a few days, then putting half of the hosting on my credit card. I wasn't expecting to get enough for hosting by noon, and have enough by the end of the day to establish a Convention and Marketing Fund.
Platinum Sponsors: auryn29a, i_descend, mendoza, and ysabel EDIT: and cislyn!
Gold Sponsors: dubheach and gikiski

If you're not on this list, it's because I accidentally skipped a line or I can't place your legal name! Help me give you credit. :)
And yes, donations are cumulative - if you don't have $100 right now, but really want to be drawn into the comic, just send what you can til you hit $100. We're easy like that. The donation button will be on the website when it launches, so if we rock your world more than usual with any particular update, you can throw a few bucks in the tip jar.
...when we get stickers and flyers? We'll need a street team. Hee!
Sorry, 'scuse me. I'm just still kinda stunned and choice-shocked over here. Thank you.

From today's XKCD - "Take wrong turns. Talk to strangers. Open unmarked doors. And if you see a group of people in a field, go find out what they're doing. Do things without always knowing how they'll turn out." (emphasis mine.)
*nods* Yes. This is who I was in my late teens, early twenties, and it's finally who I am again.
A female hammerhead shark that gave birth without sex has put the bite into conventional wisdom about reproduction among large vertebrates, according to research published Wednesday.
Repeating last night's plea - anyone going to Convergence XIII this weekend who does not care about BPAL? There are four exclusive-to-C-XIII blends (at least); you can get three of them (don't know names yet and won't know til after C-XIII) without a badge/laminate - just walk into the vendors' area, find the crowd of squeeing and great-smelling fangirls, and ask to please purchase the exclusives - but one of them, you need a flyer from Friday night's Phoenix Parade to purchase. I don't know if you need a badge for the parade.
Anyway, if you can get me these, I would be overjoyed and will of course reimburse you accordingly. If you have other friends who are going and don't care and can get a bunch of sets, I can decant the oils and sell the decants at a *reasonable goddamn price* so more people will get to smell the rare shinies.
As for reviews - I do have a wee pile of imps to review, but some of them, I swear I've reviewed before. Need to update the wiki.
