Happy birthday to dear blackpaladin and cislyn!

Hello to new readers djhath, sidepocket_pro, snakey, and technomage!

Ugh. Out of Lunesta, and it's on "doctor must authorize refills". So I slept for maybe 3 hours last night, in maybe half-hour chunks, and I feel freakin' awful today. Which sucks because this is another 6am-10pm day. (Thankfully the only one this week.)

The other thing that was keeping me awake? Bits of Jessa's story started clicking like whoa. Wish I could bring my laptop today. Nyargh. There is Wednesday.

Also I know what song it'll take its title from. But I'm not sure what lyric yet.

Link Soup
* Oh hai knitters! This is immensely practical!
* Monsanto = evil. a) Paolo Bacigalupi has been warning you about this; b) eat real food.
* Give Kate a word. Get a button.
* Maps of zombie outbreaks throughout history.

Daily Science
The pitch of blue whale songs is declining.

Work ---> lunch with volunteer coordinator ---> coffee with sairaali (bringing BPAL and WTD!) ---> meeting up with Adam and bringing him to BARCC's office to test a new part of the website (they want testing by survivors and their SOs) ---> profit killing two hours or so (I am bringing knitting and a book, but again, argh, wish I could bring the laptop; my laptop backpack is one or two trips away from falling apart entirely, and I need it to stay together for the plane on Friday) ---> BARCC peer supervision meeting + potluck (I am bringing chili).

And now I must run.

I'm sure you've heard, but LJ is seriously proposing with very little lead time a change in the coding which would force the selection of gender, either male or female, no other options, in your profile.

Probably for the sake of gender-targetted advertising.

They appear perfectly willing to ignore all related human issues, such as people who do not identify as binary male or female, people who do not feel comfortable having gender on the internet, and people who specifically do not feel SAFE having gender on the internet.

I thought you might be able to get the word out -- there's still a little time to respond.

Here's a good summary::

I hadn't heard; yesterday was another offline-til 10pm-then-bed day. Thank you for making sure I knew!
