Oh hai guys.

Since I was up at 4am, I desperately required a nap, so I did not get as much done as I'd hoped. But I did get my edits done, and got dinner all set up in the crockpot. (Ginger beef, delayed from Monday because we had insufficient beef on Monday.)

I get a paycheck now! And where did it go? Well, it's not all gone. But.
* Sock Dreams! Because, as stated in my $WINTERHOLIDAY wishlist post, my socks were getting holey. Plus I got wool knee-highs, because I walk to the bus in ten-degree weather now.
* A backpack what is messenger-bag-shaped, like the red Sailor Moon schoolgirl backpack I loved so very long ago. So I can carry my netbook and knitting and stuff in a more ergonomic fashion.
* Pants.
* Yarn.

All practical, see? Hey the yarn is practical. It's (almost) all for gifts (only one skein for me).

Work is going well; crazybusy, but I like that in a job. Our new volunteer training, which I am in charge of organizing, starts Saturday, so pretty much my entire week is given over to preparing for that, and I am very nearly done.

I have the new Brust book, and I get to read it before Adam, because he loves me very much. *nod* Also because he has books to review for PW before he can get to it, and he knows I can devour it in one or two sittings.

ARISIA ARISIA ARISIA. People start arriving... Tuesday? I need to see which corsets currently fit. Also, I need to figure out what to rad at my reading. Any requests?

arianhwyvar was the first to sponsor me for the BARCC Walk for Change! Yay! You can be the second.

I still need to write people's commissioned pieces. With luck, I'll get sleep tonight and can work on some tomorrow, so I can have them for s00j and asim at Arisia. Still not in the writing groove, but I've had zero opportunity for what, three months now? to sit down and write. Pretty much since Elayna's accident. My hope is that I can get on a schedule and get that prioritized.

I still do not have my biopsy results. They were promised on Tuesday, but I'm willing to give a little leeway due to New Year's Day. They'll be getting a phone call Friday morning if I don't hear from them tomorrow. Clearly gluten-free is much better for me and I'm doing it anyway, but a girl likes to know.

Elayna's bloodwork came back normal, so YAY. I mean, she is tired and sometimes cranky, but she is a teenager. Will still be keeping an eye on her, of course...

Gluten-free meals at Arisia will be difficult, I'm sure. I know there'll be at least one entree in the Green Room I can eat - and Staff Den took a survey about food allergies and sensitivities, but I don't *know* who's running staff den, so I don't know if that'll be adhered to. Not a lot of restaurants with advertised GF menus around Central Square (lots in Harvard). So meals with me will be less spontaneous, but do please still include me; we'll make it work!

And people dragging me out for meals - please include s00j, omnisti, and stealthcello, if at all possible!

Still hating the hair, or lack thereof.

And now, book and bed.

Conor is running staff den, and if the way it was run at Worldcon is any indication, it should be safe.

I heard Rachel and Molly, not Conor. Not that I know any of 'em
8th-Jan-2010 06:55 pm (UTC)
You are correct. It's Rachel and Molly.

Actually, there should be 2 gluten free and one mostly gluten free (contains a small amount of dark soy sauce) things to eat in the green room. Also, cooked chicken breasts and marinara that you don't have to add pasta to. And hard baked eggs (like hard boiled, but baked!)

There are GF soy sauces, if you want to make that dish GF. (I still can't eat it - soy allergy - but someone else could!)

I'll look into it. As always, we list all ingredients. Oh, the chili (the one GF thing) has meat, including bacon. Is that OK?
7th-Jan-2010 11:27 am (UTC)
That is not just okay, it is awesome. :)

Elayna's bloodwork came back normal, so YAY.

Serious big yay!
7th-Jan-2010 02:12 pm (UTC)
Oh, I'm glad that Elayna's test results came back normal!! -hugs-

Not having read this closely enough, I missed the good news about Elayna's blood test. A relieving thing! Good to know.

May your Arisia meals be the opposite of a drag. Eat well!

Enjoy the corsets, and the effect you in a corset has on people. :-)

Have fun at Arisia! I wish I could be there!
8th-Jan-2010 08:17 am (UTC) - elayna's blood work
I don't want to be the party-pooper, but talking to my physical therapist who has celiacs, she said something like 80% of people who actually have celiacs get a negative on their blood work :S I wanted to let you know so that you DO keep an eye on Elayna. I didn't get to ask her about other forms of diagnosis, as my session was over, but i will next time.

Also! please go to my site and see if anything takes your fancy, as my thank you for promoting my shop during the holidays :): http://www.etsy.com/shop/FourLis?show_panel=true
