Tew's Day two hours early 
28th-Dec-2009 10:13 pm
Because I'll be going in for my biopsy stupidly early, and I don't know when I'll rise from the anesthetic fog.

I was so bitterly exhausted today, and achier than I've been in some time. Probably partly weather, partly travel. Will be better soon.

Manic Monday
When my boss returns from vacation, I'll be suggesting a schedule change - working afternoons on Mondays when I have Peer Supe meetings, so I don't have to kill five hours running around town. If she isn't in favor - well, at least it'll be easier when I'm off gluten. Today did not suck in that I got to visit with asciikitty and yarn-shop, and got a surprise late lunch and hangout time with c1, but still, I was yawning all through the meeting. We'll see how I do next time, when my baseline energy is higher and pain is lower.

Your Daily Chance to Do Good
gafferbear requires your assistance! See here.

Gaffer lives in Boulder CO, which is really freaking cold right about now, as it normally is at the turn of the year. Part of what this means is that busking isn't really an option right now, so his income has been cut pretty drastically. And, unfortunately, he's just had an emergency come up that requires him to find new living space and get moved into it on very very short notice. In short, he needs a miracle. Gaffer is physically pretty fragile and isn't going to be able to do all this himself. He could also use some help finding a new place that (a) fulfills his own needs and (b) he's able to afford on his fairly limited housing budget.

There may also be some other stuff people who don't live in Boulder could do to help--I'll be talking with him tonight to find out the details and will share them as they become available. Some of it will be simple financial help, other parts will be things like helping him to set up a website to sell his CD's.

Daily Science
By combining a research technique that dates back 136 years with modern molecular genetics, a Johns Hopkins neuroscientist has been able to see how a mammal's brain shrewdly revisits and reuses the same molecular cues to control the complex design of its circuits.

Biopsy. Sleep. I have nothing else scheduled, because I don't know how well my body will cope!

Thinking good thoughts for tomorrow and better days to follow.

"By combining a research technique that dates back 136 years with modern molecular genetics,"

Thats how they reference the Golgi technique? Why not say the same thing about the many many techniques we do in a lab that has been done for over 100 yrs? They might as well say "By combining a survival technique dating back over 200,000 years with modern appliance design, we are able to make toast."

Interesting article though.

Everyone in the Boston area needs to sign up for Fiber Camp and start participating on the wiki. *nod*

It may surprise no one that I'm helping with it.

So I was scrolling through my flist, with my 16-year-old brother sitting next to me on the couch.

Me: *scrollscroll. Pause. Read this post*
Bro: Who's that?
Me: *blink* Mm?
Bro: *pointing at 'Song icon* Who's that?
Me: Oh. S'my friend 'song.
Bro: She has really pretty hair.

Aw! :) Thank him for me!

It's fallen out, a lot of it. So I've had to cut it shorter. But it will grow back.

I hope tomorrow goes as quickly and as well as possible.

Good luck

Yay for not having to eat any more poison!

Good luck with the biopsy tomorrow! And I rejoice with you at your impending gluten-free-ness! :)

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a good outcome for you.

Best of luck with the biopsy. I hope you feel better soon!

Best of the good luck.

Thank goodness you can go back to eating food that doesn't poison you soon! Woohoo!

Good luck today.

And you do have pretty hair. :)

How do you know my fraternal Brother Gaffer?!?

Not sure how he found me, but he's been reading me for a bit - I saw the heads up via satyrblade, damiana_swan, and s00j!
