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.
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.
