It's Adam Day. Yay Adam!
Hello to new readers arielstarshadow and syncopated_time!
Still feel like eurgh. *droops*
If you wonder at my occasional bleak moods, consider this: it's most likely going to be something like yesterday that gets me. And while there are things that help - taking my meds, getting enough sleep, etc. - nothing can actually fully prevent it. I was fast enough yesterday, is all.
So. I have been reminded. Today? Today, I start writing faster.
I'm there. As Shadesong. I was lazy.
MIT has a wind tunnel. Dude. I kinda want to go get photographed in front of it.
Interfictions 2 Auction!
ellen_kushner says: "Interfictions 2 will be published by the IAF w/Small Beer Press in November 2009. To celebrate - and to support this quixotic venture - we will be running another auction, and will be inviting people to create Wearable & Portable Art based on the stories in the new anthology (which, in a complicated way I am not yet at liberty to disclose, will be offered to artists ahead of publication - cool, huh?) as well as the first anthology."
ktempest is looking for help on organizing this - go here to volunteer!
And yes, this means you can create pieces for my story "Valentines". And I hope you do. I kinda love that story, and it's not short on imagery to use!
* Charles Tan has compiled the ultimate Directory of SF/F on Twitter. This makes me all twitterguilty. I ought to tweet more. Also, I must start following some of those feeds...
* The dark side of Dubai.
* A revolution in Moldova... organized via Twitter. Details here and here.
* This is a picture of Tila Tequila with Billy Corgan. They are apparently dating. No, I don't care about that. I post this picture because she is my height. So you can see what I look like standing next to people. Except I would not wear that dress, and my boobs are natural. Also I do not wear heels.
* Oooh, shiny! More fabulous jewelry from sihaya09!
Link Soup: Daily Science Edition
* Quantum lasers! This, of course, brings us one step closer to Schrodinger's Laser Cats.
* The five ages of the brain.
* For the first time, MIT researchers have shown they can genetically engineer viruses to build both the positively and negatively charged ends of a lithium-ion battery.
* Early warning clues for dementia.
Write. What myth ought I to poke at today? Hm. Also I hope I can get further into "My Empire for Ashes".
Tonight, Adam's birthday dinner. (And I can't wait to give him his gifts!)
