Happy birthday to badlittlemonkey and satyrblade!
Hello to new reader belasco!
Yep, still sick.
Part of me being all morose is that I am essentially still on bed rest, week two. I have the movie to go to tomorrow night, I'm tabling for BARCC at Harvard's production of The Vagina Monologues Thursday, and I have Boskone this weekend. That's a lot to do when your breathing is iffy and you're too shaky to manage the stairs. So I'm seriously taking it easy. But it's very frustrating; my feelings of isolation are probably amplified by the fact that I am, in fact, physically isolated, separated from my world.

Some of the most breathtaking objects in the cosmos are the jets of matter streaming out of stars, but astrophysicists have long been at a loss to explain how these jets achieve their varied shapes. Now, laboratory research detailed in the current issue of Astrophysical Review Letters shows how magnetic forces shape these stellar jets.
I kinda need to step back from social media - always a temptation when you're couchbound - and get some work done.
Not making it to Diesel, alas; if I make the hike to the bus stop, I risk putting myself out of commission for the rest of the week. Very physically fragile right now. The cane is in use.
