Happy birthday to the fabulous skyra! Miss you, lady...

Hello to new reader imlad!

I am cautiously optimistic. I really have to call about that rheumatologist referral, though.

I will be in Florida late this month, for a span of days somewhere between June 21 and June 29. More details as they come, but - I know I want to grab time with kires, enderfem, felisdemens...

*shakes head* I can't believe the school year's almost over...

...is in much better spirits this morning. Mercurial as always. Basically, she's got to spend her whole weekend working on this project. She knows this, and has vowed to not give me shit about it. We shall see.

Story of the Day
Little Gods, by Tim Pratt. This is one of my favorites by him. Go forth and enjoy. :)

Link Soup
* Need a labyrinth? You can rent one here.

* A comic store in Toronto recreated a scene from Lord of the Rings... using Muppet action figures.

* Death: The High Cost of Living to begin filming this fall? Gaiman and Del Toro? We can only hope...

* haikujaguar on the topic of online patronage, which isn't "supposed to" work but clearly does.

* For Adam: a recipe for pig candy.

* I must have this keyboard mod. Wow.

Daily Science
A big bully pummeled our sun in its infancy, fatefully altering the composition and evolution of the solar system, a new study suggests. The heavy, in this case, was a nearby, massive star. First, the massive star pounded the young sun with fierce winds. Then, the tyrant exploded, blasting the sun with shock waves that suffused it and its embryonic planets with iron.

Daily BPAL
I have the chakra imppack! So I'll be testing just one a day, and concentrating on that chakra throughout the day. This isn't a regular part of my practice, but what the hell, I have found their TAL oils quite effective.

Today's is :
The Glory of Shiva
The Thousand-Petaled Lotus.
Inspiration, consciousness, thought, understanding, transcendence, consciousness beyond reason, bliss.

Spiritual, emotional, mental and physical perfection.

Sahasrara grants us a glimpse of our greater Self, our destiny, and our real responsibilities in this lifetime.

This is the pursuit and realization of truth.

This is the quest for Samadhi.

In bottle: Sweetly resinous.

On me: Sweet, but not foody-sweet, and - is that anise? Lotus, that's part of the sweetness, and myrrh.

I doubt that I shall attain samadhi today, but I shall keep you posted.

Is that Frogogorn? Or Frogolas? And the penguins as orcs...see? We've always known they were Up To No Good.

Is yendi aware of The Bacon Show?. It's "One bacon recipe per day, every day, forever".

Every time you are in Florida, you end up too far south! I swear, one of these days you'll wind up in the middle of the state, where I can chase you down for coffee-shopping. :)
30th-May-2007 12:54 pm (UTC)
You should come get me! :)
30th-May-2007 12:57 pm (UTC)
Heh, well, I'm not driving anywhere for the next few months or so. :)

Such a relief about work. Driving is getting -reeeeeallly- uncomfortable.

Death: The High Cost of Living was what started me reading Gaiman and started me down a whole lot of other weird paths.
30th-May-2007 02:18 pm (UTC)
oooh, chakras. at some point, may i try?

also. i'm going to try really hard to get kires up here for the 30th, hopefully flying up on the 29th - when are you coming back? will it be on the 29th (ie, will you be able to get time with him before then)?
30th-May-2007 02:44 pm (UTC)
Of course you may!

I'm not sure what day I'll be flying back, but it'll definitely be before the 30th. It would rock to fly back *with* him. Ask him!

I'll be there from at least the 22nd through the 26th - maybe right up til the 29th. When does he get back from Germany?
30th-May-2007 02:51 pm (UTC)
he gets back on the 6th (one week down...).

i'm also planning/hoping to go down there, late on the 12th or early on the 13th, for a few days. :)
30th-May-2007 02:53 pm (UTC)
oh, and, what airline are you flying? i'll ask him, but it depends a bit on who's paying for it and how much either of us can afford right then - and if it's a buddy pass, it'll pretty much have to be the one airline.
30th-May-2007 03:52 pm (UTC)
Not sure yet - I'll ask Mom to fly us AirTran...
30th-May-2007 03:56 pm (UTC)
? us airways is the one that would work, in this case.

(have asked him - he wants me to email the info to him)
30th-May-2007 04:20 pm (UTC)
??? Since when is it US Airways? He always flew me AirTran...

Yeah, ask him to call me tonight? (I'll be out til about 9)
30th-May-2007 04:32 pm (UTC)
ah, his phone doesn't work in europe, so he left it at home. i can ask him to email you, though.

i know his sister used to work for a company other than us airways - when was the last time he flew you down? it's possible there was a switch since then. the buddy pass has always been us airways for me.

Yay! shadesong time! Now with my new LAWYER POWERS!
30th-May-2007 05:31 pm (UTC)
Oooh, baby - Power of Attorney indeed!

* Need a labyrinth? You can rent one here.

Now, if they had oned titled "Amber", I'd really have to fight putting it in my back yard. Maybe with a unicorn statue in the centre.....
