Happy birthday to three fabulous women: fiannaharpar, mizarchivist, and zoethe!
Hello to new readers cwoolard, kitanzi, mananath, and otaku_fae!
Why do I always forget how draining the Aquarium is for me? It's that damn spiral around the main tank. You are always walking uphill there, and I'm not so good at that anymore.
But I have that blind spot. "Oh, hey, let's go to the Aquarium! We can walk around Fanueil Hall after. Maybe lunch in the North End." And then halfway through the Aquarium it becomes clear that this is a Mistake. But I do the rest of it anyway, staggering and all. Oy.
So yes. Body = trashed.Not nearly as bad as it was yesterday afternoon/evening, but still. Elayna has opted for a bumming-around-the-house day today. I have no complaints about this.
New front page, with new mystery links. You may have seen Shawn's account in your previous explorations. You haven't seen the others.
I am (finally!) getting to the end of the scripts from when this was a comic book. Soon I'll feel more like I'm writing and less like I'm revamping scripts and kludging together disparate plot points. I look forward to that.
Yes, that's Stephen's ribbon dividing stuff. That has no deep implication of Stephen's involvement; I just needed a ribbon to divide the text, and I don't have one for Tessa yet. Will replace when I have Tessa's ribbon. If anyone feels like making one, it should be a stretch of road with a blue van tootling along on it.
ART NEEDED: I'd like a picture of Lyric, please; as you can see, she'll be making her debut next week.
My big project of the day = e-mailing all raffle donors and winners to pair them up.
Still overwhelmed by response. Thank you so much, guys.
* Keyboard pants. Is this the solution to my space bar issue? Probably not. But I kinda want 'em.
* John Waters interview. :)
* Locus Awards finalists!
* OH JOHN RINGO NO.
* The Museum of Unworkable Devices.
A new high-resolution study of the hot, charged gas spouting from an enormous black hole provides the most direct evidence yet that such plasma jets are powered by corkscrew-shaped magnetic fields. Researchers say the finding helps clarify the inner workings of blazars, extremely energetic galaxies that flare up unpredictably, driven by central black holes millions of times more massive than the sun.
* Raffle wrapup.
* Laundry and general tidying.
* Must write book reviews.
* MizA's skating party tonight! I doubt my body'll be up for skating, but hey - hanging out with friends and watching Elayna skate. :)
