Happy birthday to crystalsage and mr_wombat!

Pretty good. Was full of ouch after last night's rollerskating, but Robaxin works.

This is the last day you can sign up to sponsor me! Currently at $3,943. I need to go through blogforbarcc today and make sure all of the winning bidders have signed up.

Winning bidders - if you've already signed up, paid, and sent me your receipt, I've forwarded the artist your address. I'll be updating blogforbarcc posts accordingly.

EDIT: Updated. And have confirmed that the "pay now through this link!" e-mails will go out tomorrow.

I need to do that more often! It is ever so much fun. Feels like flying. :) Had to rest between songs a bit - my pain levels are lower than last time, but my ankles still get worn out from hauling those heavy skates around. If I start doing this more often, I ought to invest in some lightweight skates.

I wear a kid size. So my skates had toe-bumpers.

The girls all had fun, too, and we sang all the way home. <3

A week from tomorrow, I'm leaving town for pretty much all of August. That seems so weird to me. Should take care of my travel jones for a bit, though.

What the Hell, Robot Chicken?
Two rape "jokes" on the season premiere? This was necessary why?

What's the address to write to Adult Swim?

Link Soup
* Arnold Schwarzenegger has eliminated funding for domestic violence shelters in California. Yes. He didn't just cut it. He removed it entirely. Californians, click here to tell your state government how screwed up that is!
* I don't know what to say about International Blog Against Racism Week! So I link you to ibarw, which has many wonderful posts on the matter.
* Ragtime covers of '80s songs. <3

Daily Science
Evidence of liquid water in comets reveals possible origin of life: Comets contained vast oceans of liquid water in their interiors during the first million years of their formation, a new study claims.

Friday Memeage!
Wearing: A tank top with a gryphon on it. What? I just got up.
Reading: Queen Isabella: She-Wolf of France, Queen of England, by Alison Weir; Amazon Ink by Lori Devoti.
Writing: I intend to do the second draft of "My Empire for Ashes" today - going to have to add a few thousand words after all, and make some references more obvious. Must also choose which words I'm using for The Changeling's Alphabet. Tomorrow I'll work on a story that just popped up this week, another blend of sciencegeekery and mythology.
Planning: blogforbarcc housekeeping today, plus edits, plus arranging everything I need to arrange for next week. Tomorrow is a blissfully open day. Sunday, hanging out at kythryne's.

Writing: On hiatus.
Planning: I am going to give birth by C-section on the 1st August (already tomorrow - my side of the world). Not much - just plenty of rest and bonding with my newborn daughter.

Sadly, this isn't the first time Robot Chicken has brought the unfunny.

I originally saw that you twittered your response about Robot Chicken - they have a twitter, so I wondered why you didn't respond directly. :)
'Course, if you're looking for a snail mail addy for CN or AS, I suppose you want to to the more professional route of sending an actual letter that might get something done instead of a snarky twitter, eh? :)

However, if for some reason you still feel like it might come in handy..

Um, the thing here is on Sunday. We won't be home tomorrow...

Oh! Never mind. Strike that; reverse it. :)

Skating... both iceskating and rollerskating... is something I hope to be able to do in the next life. I've never been able to skate in this one.

Wearing: Still in a yellow nightie top and gray sweatpants. I slept in... this week has been hellish.

Reading: Dipping in and out of cherished annual summer re-reads DANDELION WINE and TRAVELS WITH CHARLEY. I need comforting.

Writing: Long-delayed grant proposals.

Planning: Cleanup after all the SDCC madness, whittling down my e-mail list, at least one session of cooking on the grill, and finally getting to watch FIREFLY end-to-end. Due to many complicated reasons, I have never seen it in its entirety, because I had to wait for other people to be ready to see it with me.

Wearing: head to almost-toe black, just got home from work. Toes are OPI's "Teal me it isn't so!" - shiny clear blue ocean water type. Not really teal at all but I'm not complaining.

Reading: The Subtle Knife by Pullman, iirc. Second in the Golden Compass series. It's starting nicely but after the first, my expectations are low.

Writing: mechanical pencils have been bought, fun writing may actually start soon! :) serious bill type writing will be later this weekend when I am brave enough to look at my checking accounts.

Planning: catching up on internet, nap, time with boyfriend eventually today. Weekend is for checking off things on my to-do list and working, as always, on Sunday.
