Happy birthday to my beloved feste_sylvain!
Hello to new reader zianuray!
Slept hardcore last night. Yay. I'm a little achy from hauling the BARCC tabling bag around all day, though. I really need to transfer the contents to a backpack so the weight gets distributed evenly.
Yes, my daughter is actually made of highly concentrated awesome.
And high school seems to be agreeing with her so far, which is a tremendous relief.
State of the 'songbody
The weight loss has stabilized (yay for no more worrying about losing half my hair again!), but the body is still changing; fat converting to muscle, as I'm far more active in the fall, specially with walking to a lot of BARCC engagements. So the number aren't shifting, but my size 8 jeans are threatening to slide off my hips. I need to see if I can find any 6s in the depths of my closet.
Yes, I am being careful, and also am drinking much water - I had a little resurgence of the feeling ketone-y yesterday, but much water was consumed.
My body is looking more and more like it looks in my head. That crazy weight gain was totally the Lyrica.
Invisible Illness Awareness Week
Yes, I'm planning a 30-things post; I've just been crazybusy this week...
Via samhenderson: Give me the title of a story I’ve never written, and feedback telling me what you liked best about it, and I will tell you any of: the first sentence, the last sentence, the thing that made me want to write it, the biggest problem I had while writing it, why it almost never got submitted to magazines, the scene that hit the cutting room floor but that I wish I’d been able to salvage, or something else that I want readers to know.
Carlin: Black sage, ivy-twined rowan, thistle, snapdragon, heather, gorse, fumitory, and anise.
In bottle: Mmmm. Dark rich ivy/sage.
On me: This is like eau de overgrown castle wall. Yum. Very evocative.
The Hell-Gate of Ireland: Smoldering brimstone, bitter labdanum, clove, black musk, and copper-colored feathers.
In bottle: Thick dark resinous spice.
On me: Thick dark resinous spice - with a hint of plastic that teases and disappears, hopefully for good. No, keeps teasing. Hrm.
Smallest exoplanet is shown to be a solid, rocky world.
Argh, crazybusy day. Must pay bills and write WTD. Then there's the lunch not-a-date rescheduled from Tuesday and possible stop at the yarn store, the house stuff that's been neglected this week, doctor calls, et cetera. And tonight I must attend a high school football game, because my daughter's in the band. And I may be sleeping over at feste_sylvain's, depending if my BARCC gig first thing tomorrow morning is cancelled.
EDIT: No time for WTD before going out for lunch; will be later.
