Happy late birthday to morenasangre!

Happy birthday to hanasaseru!

Happy early birthday to manifestress, omnia_mutantur, lightniing, jlassen, and devoken, who advance a year over the extended weekend!

Balancing out, thank goodness. And I have enough of the muscle relaxant to last me the weekend.

Arisia Survival Guide
* DO NOT give me a friendly shoulder rub as a hello.
* DO ask if I'm currently huggable.
* DO NOT give me those big hugs that lift me off the ground - they are excruciatingly painful.
* DO ask if I need a nap, if I seem spacey. I may not realize that I need one unless it's suggested. Because that's how I am when I need a nap.
* DO introduce yourself, even if we've met before, if that meeting was fleeting. I'm not at Adam's level of faceblindness, but I have a broken short-to-long-term memory buffer.

On a nonphysical note...

* DO please come to my reading - Saturday at 4:30. As a journeyman writer, it is important for me to have support. As I said last night, "Reading to a room full of people is frightening. Reading to an empty room is demoralizing. Give me the frightening, please." So come and bring your friends! There will be a drawing for a free chapbook! And cookies!

There are a lot of wonderful comments about how the process works and how it does stimulate the economy, and there's another round of voting.
I would sleep so much easier if I didn't have to worry myself sick over Sean's future. other people are free to pass it on."
