Happy birthday to auryn29a!

Yay Lunesta.

Just got in.
From a pretty-much-all-day BARCC gig. Back-to-school is one of our two busiest seasons!

Um, well, it's 3:30 and I just got home; am sitting down in front of my computer for the first time in over 24 hours. So. I'm going to slack off today in favor of rest, decompression, family time, bill-paying, et cetera, and you will have fairy tales from both me and Gwyn tomorrow, 'k?

Me: "Ack!"
Elayna: "What?"
Me, brandishing a BPAL decant wand: "It's a good thing I like this smell, because it is now all over my pants."
Elayna: "Yuck."
Me: "Well, it's not like I spilled a whole bottle. I just dropped the wand. But now my pants smell like roasted apples mashed into warmed milk and ale, with nutmeg, sugar, ginger, and clove. "
Elayna: "I'd say 'that's what she said,' but she's not that long-winded."
Me: "...I'm raising you right."

Elayna was drafted into the Robotics Club today. Some girl was bouncing around the lunchroom being charming at prospective young roboticists, and before she knew it, Elayna was enrolled. Hey, her school's team goes to national competitions. This leads to nothing that is not awesome.

As for links and science and all of that... like I said, I have been afk for a day and a half. So you'll get those tomorrow!

Ha, oh Elayna.

Ack. Good luck getting that *out* of your pants; I have a bra which never recovered from, like, two drops of Beaver Moon '07.

Oh, I CRACKED UP over the exchange with Elayna.

Ok..now I suddenly know who Elayna reminds me of... Zoe from the show Eureka....[which you might enjoy if you haven't seen it already].. well in a few years time anyway.

And there are worse things for one's pants to smell off...

Zoe is Elayna's favorite character on that show. :)
