Happy birthday to cafenowhere!

Hello to new reader autumns_lioness!

Slept marginally better. Marginally.

Still at $433.34. Sponsor me!

Feeling Quite Accomplished
I actually accomplished everything on my to-do list yesterday. For the first time in *ages*. *crosses fingers for continued capability*

Free Will Astrology
Uncle Rob sez: "Long-standing myths are on the verge of mutating. Stories that have remained fixed for years are about to acquire unexpected wrinkles. The effects may be pretty spectacular. I suspect it'll be the equivalent of Sleeping Beauty waking up from her long sleep without the help of the prince's kiss, or like Little Red Riding Hood devouring the wolf instead of vice versa. There's something you can do, Pisces, to ensure that the new versions of the old tales are more empowering than the originals: For the foreseeable future, take on the demeanor and spirit of a noble warrior with high integrity and a fluid sense of humor."

Sounds about right.

Daily Science
Usually when physicists talk about quantum teleportation, they're referring to the transfer of quantum states from one particle to another without a physical link. Now, physicists have investigated a slightly different form of teleportation, in which they teleport a quantum field, or an entire beam of light, from one location to another. This kind of "strong" teleportation is required for some quantum information applications, and could lead to the teleportation of quantum images.

Daily BPAL
Boadicea: Amber, fig, vanilla flower, oak, patchouli, vetiver, dragon’s blood resin, leather, and neroli.
In bottle: Sweetness and resin, with that touch of leather.
On me: Same, with the resin rising above the sweetness. Nice.

Semiramis: Red musk, pomegranate, orange blossom, and melon.
In bottle: Red musk and melon is a weird intersection.
On me: Yeah, there's some odd dissonance there for me.

Must pay bills, if Adam finds time to balance the checkbook before he goes to work. Other than that? It's a day to whip my office into shape and update the corkboard that tells me what stories I'm supposed to be working on. "Happy Hour at the Tooth and Claw", "Maxfield Parrish Blue(s)", and "I Am Thinking of You in the Spaces Between" (fantasy, SF, and SF respectively) are all equally ready to be jumped on, I think. And I have those poetry dares...

And since it looks (tentatively!) like I'll be able to Get Things Done more days than not, it's time to do a master to-do list again and do a few things every day. Next pain-in-the-butt thing: Putting all of the unsold BPAL up on eBay - so if you'd been pondering that sale post, today's the day to hit it!
