Tew's Day!

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.

Daily Science
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.
